by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
An Altha woman seriously injured in a
four-vehicle accident Friday morning was
hospitalized after suffering a collapsed
lung, a broken right ankle, a large gash on
her left leg and a cracked vertebrae.
Sharon Nicole Purvis, 27, was hit by an
oncoming car that had just been rear-ended
in the 7:20 a.m. collision at State Road 20
and Hummingbird Lane in Blountstown.
Two of the other drivers had minor
injuries; another had none. Three children,
including a three-year-old in the second
vehicle, had only minor injuries because,
"He was in a car seat like he should have

been," said
FHP Trooper
Husar, who
added that
the other
children were
buckled up in
seat belts.
The trooper
gave the following account of the chain-
reaction accident:
Dawnyel M. Tolley, 35, ofBlountstown,
was westbound on S.R. 20 when she

stopped to
make a left
Bl turn at Kid's
Kingdom. She
was rear-ended
by a 2006
Truck, driven
by William S.
Cook, 39, of
Whigham, GA.
After striking the right rear of Tolley's
2006 Toyota SUV, Cook's truck went
onto the north shoulder of the road and
hit a tree.

The impact knocked the SUV into the
oncoming lane, where it struck the left front
of Purvis' 2005 Chevrolet SUV, causing it
to rotate clockwise before coming to rest
on the south shoulder, facing west.
Tolley's SUV rotated counter-clockwise
and was facing east when it was hit from
behind by a 2007 Dodge van, driven by
J.A. Fields, 31, of Clarksville. Fields was
not injured; an 11-year-old girl riding
with him sustained minor injuries while
a seven-year-old boy in the vehicle was

Calhoun Co. woman charged with

threatening husband with shotgun

An intoxicated woman who
suddenly realized she could return
to prison after being charged with
holding her husband at gunpoint
turned to the arresting officer
and stated, "I should have killed
him," according to a report from
the Calhoun County Sheriff's
Rhonda Lisa Blocker, 47,
was arrested for aggravated
assault with a deadly weapon
and possession of a weapon
by a convicted felon after a
disturbance at her Hwy. 71 N.
home on Aug. 26. Her criminal
history includes numerous felony
convictions and prison time.
Her husband, Michael Blocker,
53, went to a neighbor's home to
call for help after she threatened
him, according to the report. He
said his wife was intoxicated and
remained inside the residence.
Capt. Ken Futch approached
the home and spotted Blocker
inside through the glass, just
inside the door. When she opened
the door, Futch asked where the
weapon was and she pointed to a
pellet gun on a nearby table. She
said she kept the gun to shoot

He asked again about the
shotgun and she replied that it
was in her bedroom. Futch found
the shotgun in plain view in a
bedroom corer and confiscated
After. she was taken into
custody, Futch spoke further
with the husband, who gave
the following account of the
Blocker said the two of them
had been out to see friends earlier.
Whenthey got home, she went to
lie down in the bedroom.while he
sat in the living room. She later
came into his living room and
"wanted to start an argument."
Blocker said he tried to avoid the
argument by going to bed.
After he turned in, she entered
the bedroom and made some
comments. She walked out, then

came back in the bedroom and
turned on the light. Blocker then
saw she was holding a shotgun
and heard her state, "I'm going
to kill you."
He said he picked up a shoe
and threw it at her to distract her
long enough for him to escape.
When he got up, he struggled
with her for the gun and took it
away from her before running out
to a neighbor's home.
Blocker's stepson witnessed
the altercation.
During the struggle for the
shotgun, Blocker received a
laceration to his wrist which did
not require treatment.
Due to the woman's "obvious
intoxication," a statement was not
taken from her at the time of her

Altha water shut off after truck

rips out 1961 fire hydrant Thurs.

by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor .
A tight turn, a big truck and
a poorly-placed fire hydrant left
Altha residents without water for
three hours Thursday.
"A semi was turning on C.R.
274, going west, and apparently
didn't swing wide enough,"
said Altha Police Chief James
Wayne Gable, public works
director for the town of Altha,
saw the accident from a distance
around 11 a.m. It happenedat the

comer of the town hall building.
"It's too tight of a corner
for a long wheel-based semi,"
said Gable, who saw the truck
pull up and then back up before
continuing forward, catching a
fire hydrant that was just four feet
from the pavement.
Gable said he realized there
was a problem when, "I noticed
water running down the road."
He said the trailer caught the top
of the hydrant and ripped it out
where it hooks to the main.

Expansion proposed

for Bristol City Limits
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A proposal to expand the city limits of Bristol, increasing the city
to two or more times its current size, was introduced at Monday
night's Bristol City Council Annexation and Budget Workshop.
Council Chairman Brigham Shuler recommended that the city
limits be stretched north to the Garden of Eden Road, east to Turkey
Creek, south to Johnson Branch and Hoecake Road and west to the
"From our standpoint, we will be able to bring such necessary
things as city water, sewer and cable T.V. into areas that currently
don't have it," he said.
"I've had a lot of people approach me with the idea of being an-
nexed by the city so they could get on the water system," Shuler said.
"Our water is regularly tested and safe, unlike well water, which is
never tested unless someone takes it to a lab."
He said he sees these features as a way to "upgrade the quality of
life in the community."
But some people in the audience at Monday's meeting didn't
"I have 13 acres. I don't need your stuff," said Sherri Branch.
Her father, John Strutko, chided the board, warning, "If you expand,
you're going to lose money."
Sliuler replied that while not all current Bristol residents are con-
nected to city services, when they are in the near future, the city
"will make a slight profit."
_Branch, who had her own septic tank installed and produces much
of her own electricity with the use of solar panels, balked. "A lot of
us can't do much with our land. I don't want you to offer me services
I already have. Why should I want to pay more taxes?"
Annexation opponent Jon Kern called the proposal, "A money
and power grab."
Shuler said he expected opposition. "Some people think they're
going to get loaded with a huge tax burden. That's not true. Our city
millage rate is 3 percent."

The basic repairs were done
within three hours, but work
continued until normal water
pressure was restored at 6 p.m.
Aboil water notice was issued.
"Water samples were taken
to make sure no bacteria has
infiltrated our system," Gable
In all, repairs took seven
hours, which included digging
up the sidewalk with a backhoe
to reach the water main and then
repouring it.
Gable said the hydrant was
put in place in 1961. There are
no plans to replace it since there
are three other hydrants in the
immediate area, he said.
Baggett said the driver later
stated he didn't realize he had
hit anything and continued on.
Witnesses identified the vehicle
as belonging to Shelton Trucking.
The company has agreed to cover
the costs of the property damage,
Baggett said.

'Noreen & Claire'

display at library

in Blountstown
Artists have diverse styles that are
unique to their interpretation of the world
around them. Seldom do two exceptionally
creative and talented artists come together
to produce one, much less multiple pieces
of art.
However, this is exactly what has
blossomed from Nancy Zurenda and
Anna Gitana Layton's creative gifts. It
is interesting how this all came about.
Anna states that the inspiration for the
collaboration came from the Panhandle
Pioneer Settlement. Nancy did a charcoal
drawing of the Bailey cabin (circa 1860)
and Anna requested a print of the drawing
and if she could add "some of my watercolor
flowers and maybe a clothes line 'n stuff?"
The result was an intriguing blend of two
artists' styles and the birth of"Noreen &
The Blountstown Public Library is
pleased to present the first Noreen &
Claire Art Exhibit. The collage of styles
and media will delight and inspire the art
lover and artist alike. Anna and Nancy said
that the "Noreen & Clair" collection will
eventually grow to include stories of the
pastcoupled with art works that will reflect
their shared love of history and art.
Anna Layton lives in Calhoun and
Nancy Zurenda resides in Jackson County.
The free exhibit will be up from Sept. 8
through Oct. 30 and open to the public
during library hours. For more information

taking any medicines, just living out his last days in a
good family and good surroundings.
Shortly after the birthday party, he visited his doctor
about a lump in his throat. Medical tests revealed an ag-
gressive cancer and the comment that he only has a short
time remaining.
I am told that he is resigned to his fate. He says that
he has been living on "borrowed time" and is happy to
have lived 90 years.
My uncle's misfortune brings to mind this mindless
S" furor over death squads perpetrated by people opposed
S - - ~ . to health care reform. The doctors are prescribing drugs
-- - - that may counter the cancer. Who knows? They might
- - - - find a drug that works, and he can live another few years.
He may die in the predicted six months, but the doc-
tors aren't going to write him off as a hopeless case, as
- - the anti-health care reform crowd would lead you to be-
S - - - - lieve.
If none of the medications work, his family will make
S. his last days as comfortable as possible. He may require
hospice care. If so, he will get it. Throughout this ordeal,
his doctor will advise him of his condition and the out-
come, either good or bad.
Both of us, having served long careers in the military,
have excellent health care insurance. I'd like to say that
I had retirement, health care insurance and a life's plan
S - -- in mind when I joined the Air Force at eighteen, but I
Didn't. We were poor, uninformed people, and our life's
S "- plan.was to finish high school, get a job, go to work and
hope for the best. Luck plays a major role in our lives.-It
was my good luck to join the Air Force.
- - - Many Americans aren't as lucky as my uncle and me,
- - - - but they deserve adequate health care as much as we do.
S - - - However, we are a nation of "haves and have nots." Just
- - . - - s it was for me, it is the luck of the draw that most often
determines whether one's life is a bed of roses or a pile
of rocks.

As I've written before, I think that
health care is a right, not a for-profit ven-
ture. Some issues are basic to the com-
mon good of a society. Health care is one
of those issues.
This vitriolic backlash against health
care reform is a revelation, frankly, a bit
scary. In the macro view of things, if we
aren't able to collectively deal with the
health care issue then we will not be.able
to deal with other serious issues like the

failure of Social Security.
Like it or not, America is changing and not necessar-
ily for the good. People have the 1950s image of Ameri-
ca's prosperity, but those days are no more. America is in
a globalized economy. America's manufacturing sector
has shrunk to be replaced by a service industry. Ameri-
ca's economy is about 75% service based.
China's economy is growing at a robust pace because
of its manufacturing and exporting products to the U.S.
consumer. We want cheap stuff, we get it. Not from Ohio
or Georgia, but from China.
To maintain our collective lifestyle and fight wars, we
borrow money. As I've written before, it's a cash flow
problem for the U.S. The federal government and now the
states do not generate sufficient income to pay for health
care on the national level or schools on the local level.
There is no mystery here. It's that market thing. The
U.S. economy is going to shrink until it equalizes with
cash flow. Federal, state and local governments are go-
ing to provide less goods and services. Republicans want
smaller government, well, they are going to get it. But
it will come with a price in the reduction in America's
standard of living.
The government, meaning all of us, can't continue to
borrow money to run America. It's the same as a person
continually charging basic living cost to his or her credit
card. We can't continue to charge the groceries.
This current national dustup over health care reform
isn't about what pills the doctor will prescribe, it's about
money, lots of money. The basic issue is that the govern-
ment can't continue to fund social programs like Medi-
care. Yes, we pay in to these programs, but again, it's
a cash flow problem. The problem is not enough cash
flow, which I think most Americans fail to understand.
For most people the debate is an emotional one, but in
reality, it's a business problem. Too much cost and not
enough cash.

EPA agrees to

set limits on FL

fertilizer and

waste pollution
TALLAHASSEE - The Environmental
Protection Agency and environmental
groups represented by Earthjustice have
negotiated a deal to set limits on the
amount of fertilizer and waste that can be
released into Florida's waterways. Runoff
is the culprit, triggering toxic algae
outbreaks that poison the ecosystem,
threaten public health and destroy water
quality, according to David Guest,
managing attorney for Earthjustice. He
says the agreement is a step in the right
"Before, there were no limits on
fertilizer and animal waste pollution.
Now there are limits, and they will be
used to bring a halt to the accelerating
destruction of our waterways."
Critics argue that setting legal limits
could cost millions of dollars by forcing
cities to reduce pollutants coming from
sewage treatment plants and by making
farmers regulate runoff from pesticides
and animal waste. Guest counters that
clean water actually will save money,
because clean-up costs are much more
expensive than reducing pollution at its
A 2008 report found that more than
half of Florida's rivers and lakes had
poor water quality - killing fish, closing
swimming areas and even shutting down
a southwest Florida drinking-water plant.
Exposure to blue-green algae toxins can
cause rashes, serious illness and death
for both people and wildlife, the report
Manley Fuller, executive director of
the Florida Wildlife Federation, warns
that the pollution limits are overdue.
"We've seen all kinds of degradation
all over the state. Having-measurable
numerical standards is key to wrestling
with this problem and reversing this
horror story."
The limits are an investment in Florida's
future, Guest adds.
"What you get out of it is a clean
drinking-water source, clean places to
recreate and a net economic gain. Is there
a billion dollar cost? No. There's really
a gain. Clean water makes money; it
doesn't cost money."
The EPA has until mid-January to
propose limits for phosphorous and
nitrogen pollutants, which will make it
easier for the state to prosecute major

New generator installed

at Calhoun Courthouse
Employees at the Calhoun County Courthouse can continue working in air
conditioned comfort when the new 500 killowatt, 762 hp generator delivered
last week is up and running. This year alone, there have been 25 to 30 power
outages, according to Calhoun County Maintenance Supervisor Tim Jenks. The
back-up power source is especially critical during hurricane season, according
to Jenks. The eight-foot generator is anchored to a concrete slab in a space in
the parking lot behind the courthouse. "We hope to get the fuel lines hooked up
this week, do a test run and then it will be ready," Jenks said. "It's going to be
real nice," he said, noting that the small generator they have been relying on sits
in the courthouse basement and creates fumes and noise while only keeping
the EOC office and the elevators working. "The new generator will run the whole
courthouse and will come on within three seconds when the power goes off," he


Historic Tourism

Images added to

FL Memory site
TALLAHASSEE - The State Library
and Archives of Florida has added an.
online photographic exhibit titled Road-
side Attractions in Florida: Tourism and
Spectacle before Disney to the Florida
Memory Web site. View the exhibit on-
line at http://www.floridamemory.com/
Tourism is Florida's principal indus-
try, and every year millions of people
from around the world flock to the state
to see its tropical beauty and enjoy its
many theme parks. Some may attribute
the tourism boom in Florida to the open-
ing of Disney World in the early 1970s,
but Florida natives and longtime visitors
know better. Beginning in the late 19th
century, tourists traveled to Florida to
view lush gardens, peer through glass
bottom boats, see mermaids, and inter-
act with the exotic environment.
In the late 19th century, promoters
began to employ popular myths and leg-
ends about Florida, such as the legend-
ary Fountain of Youth, to lure'visitors.
Soon there were "submarine" boats and
viewing areas that peered underwater,
and elaborate underwater performances
by staff members. Tourists also traveled
long distances to see Florida's many lush
gardens. As a result of Florida's mild
climate and long growing season, profi-
teers were able to create colorful and
lavish gardens out of the state's swamps
and pine forests.
Visitors were fascinated by exotic an-
imals like the alligator, which were often
found in Florida's roadside attractions.
The Miami Seaquaritim was-and still
is-a favorite with tourists. In 1963, Six
Gun Territory opened in Ocala. This at-
traction offered vacationers a Wild West
town experience complete with saloons,
gun fights, stage coach rides, and a sky
ride until it closed in 1984.
These vintage attractions have nearly
been lost in the new high-tech world
of Universal Studios and Disney. The
memories linger, thanks in large part to
photographs like the ones featured in
this exhibit.
The Florida Memory Program is
funded by a Library Services and Tech-
nology Act Grant from the Institute of
Museum and Library Services, adminis-
tered by the Florida Department of State,

An update on our new and improved Hospital

How about an update on the
many good things going on at the
hospital? There's a lot to report!
As my article covered last
month, we're very pleased to now
provide digital mammography.
You can schedule by calling 674-
5411, ext 216. And don't forget
to ask your doctor about a "dexa-
scan" test for osteoporosis to go
along with it.
And the mammography room
has been beautifully decorated
after "adoption" by Ms. Angie Hill.
Great job, Angie and thanks again!
at the hospital last month. We're
upgrading our "informational
technology" capabilities in all
of the clinical sections of the
-hospital. Eventually, we'll offer
a paperless, electronic medical
record, or EMR.
You've probably read about
this as a part of the "stimulus
package." The government is
pushing all hospitals to move in
this direction.
Due to the desire of our Board
to provide the best care possible
to you, we were well under way
to do this, well before the stimulus
act. Using state .grants and other
state and federal special funds,
it will be a total investment of

over $500,000. And you'll be the
This will make the medical care
we provide to you safer and of
the highest quality. I like to brag
on our staff for the courteous and
compassionate care they provide.
Now, they'll continue to do that
but in the latest, technologically
advanced methods possible.
Again, you, as our patient, will
be the one benefiting.
For a small, rural hospital,
we'll really be "state-of-the art"
in the critical area of medical
informational technology. Our
lab and x-ray departments should
be fully implemented by the end
-of the year. By this time next
year, the entire hospital will be
completely electronically "wired"
and we are very pleased with this.
And proud!
We also continue.to greatly
improve the overall appearance
of the hospital. Have you seen our
newly renovated nurses' station?
It's really nice and much more
functional for our staff. The
Dupont Foundation adopted this
key part of the hospital...
Our adopted rooms continue to
come along. The Waldorfffamily

Other rooms are getting close
to completion and we only have

of those that have adopted and
will soon have a nice ceremony
to recognize all of them.
Perhaps you saw the article on

us for a new building to house
Emergency Medical Services and
additional clinic space. We're so
thankful to Mr. Boyd for this and
all of his support. We're confident
the Senate will pass it and the
President will sign the legislation.
This will aid our continued growth
and efforts at serving you better.
We recently had over 30
members of our staff participate

Flu shots available Sept. 1 in Bristol

The facts on Swine Flu
H1N1 (swine) flu is a new and very different influenza virus that
is spreading worldwide among people. This new virus was called
"swine flu" at first because it is similar to a virus that has been found
in pigs in the past. However, H1N1 virus has not been detected in U.S.
pigs. Furthermore, you cannot contract the virus from eating pork.
The virus is spread from person to person through the coughs and
sneezes of people who are sick with influenza. People may also get
sick by touching something with flu viruses on it and then touching
their eyes, mouth or nose. The symptoms ofH1N1 are the same as for
the seasonal flu. They are fever and/or cough, sore throat or running
nose. Other symptoms may include body aches, headache, fatigue,
chills, diarrhea and vomiting. Until a vaccine is available the message
for everyone is:
* Stay at home if you are ill and keep your child home from school
or day care if they are ill.
* Stay home until 24 hours after fever is gone (without the use of
fever-reducing medication).
* Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or
sneeze. If you do not have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow
or sleeve.
* Wash your hatids often with soap and water or use an alcohol
based hand sanitizer. Teach children to wash while singing a song like
"Happy Birthday" to be sure they have spent adequate time scrubbing
their hands.
* Avoid touching you eyes, nose or mouth.
* Avoid contact with ill persons.
Every one needs to have a plan! What are you going to do if your
child or a family member that you care for becomes ill? You can still
go to work as long as you do not develop symptoms but who is going
to take care of your family member? We are expecting to see a large
increase in H1N1 infections now that school has started.
The school nurses are preparing to deal with this at school. Ill
students will be sent home from school and instructed to stay at home
until fever is gone for 24hours (without fever reducing medicines).
Your child may be out of school for up to 7 days! If you or a family
member becomes sick and you have an underlying medical condition
such as heart or lung disease, diabetes, asthma or are pregnant, a medical
evaluation for antiviral treatment is encouraged as soon as symptoms
begin to help prevent further complications.
Amass H1N1 vaccination plan is being developed by Liberty County
Health Department. The campaign will begin as soon as H1N1 vaccine
is received and will last at least 12 weeks.
Priority groups for this vaccine are
* health care workers and first responders,
* pregnant women,
* persons age 6 months-24 years,
* persons age 25-64 with chronic diseases and household contacts
of infants less than 6 months of age.

The Liberty County Health Department will begin to give seasonal
flu vaccine on Sept. 1. The H1N1 flu vaccine will probably be a 2 dose
series. Children from age 6 months and older and persons age 50 and
older, persons with chronic health problems and women who will be
pregnant during flu season should receive seasonal flu vaccine.
Call now for an appointment at (850) 643-2415. There are many
resources you can use to get information about HINl influenza,
including: www.flu.gov, www.myflusafety.com, or call the H1N1 toll

Casa's 'Family Day: A day to eat with your children'

MIAMI - More than a
decade of research by The
National Center on Addiction
and Substance Abuse (CASA)
at Columbia University has
proven that kids who eat dinner
with their families are less likely
to smoke, drink or use drugs.
Through its Community Action
Team (CAT) program, Informed

national Sept. 28 Family Day,
a national movement to remind
parents that frequent family
dinners make a difference, with
its own "Family Day Photo
Contest," open to all families
across Florida.
With the contest, Informed
Families is asking families to
submit photos of them eating
dinner together for the chance
to win one of three Publix gift
cards - one $50 gift card or two
$25 gift cards. To be eligible to
win, participants must also sign a
"Family Day Pledge," (available
at www.informedfamilies.org/

dinner with their children on
Sept. 28 and more frequently
throughouttheyear. Submissions

will be accepted from

Socialized medicine

worked well for my

family in England
To the editor:
SAfter reading Dr. Sutton's experience of socialized
medicine in Puerto Rico, I feel I have to stand up for
the other side of the coin, so to speak.
I was bor and raised in England, where in 1948 the
country adopted socialized medicine. We had just come
through over six years of war where we had lost a lot
of our medical personnel. I can only speak for myself,
family and friends but we never had a problem seeing a
doctor or having surgery, as experienced by my father
and aunt. There was never a waiting period. My nephew,
who had asthma, was taken straight to the hospital when
needed-and.they finally gave him a nebulizer with the
medication to use at home which made it a lot easier
on the family, There was no charge.
At that time we were also an Empire, which included
countries such as Canada, Australia; New Zealand,
Africa, India and many others so any citizen of the
Empire could come and get free medical treatment
which included dental and glasses.
Now I come under another program, one that was
also'mentioned by Doctor Sutton, the government health
care. My husband is a retired member of the United
States Air Force, so we use the military Tricare Program.
I have no problem calling my excellent local doctor's
office and getting an appointment, knowing full well it
will be paid for. Any medications that I need I get at a
reduced cost.
For my family and me, socialized medicine worked
very well and now the government programs work
equally well. I know in other parts of the world, health
care is a problem. Some places it's almost non-existent,
but let us not condemn some plan that may work very
well in this country without giving it a fair trial.

School supplements,
grants & hiring practices
questioned in Liberty Co.
To the editor:
My family and my wife's family have been taxpayers
in Liberty County for many years. Our children have
been and are being educated in this school system and
I have many questions that need to be answered.
First of all, I would like to call for a public forum.
Back and forth through letters will not include enough
people and I am sure there are many who feel as.I do.
I ask Superintendent Summers and all the school
board members to think about the following:
1. Supplements: How much are they? Was there a
raise in some supplements from 2008-2009 school year
to this school year? Why do we need four assistant
football coaches? Why dO guidance counselors receive
supplements for being curriculum coordinators when
in the past that has been "part of the job?" At the
district office why would certain positions (i.e. early
childhood supervisors, nurse health consultant, etc.)
need supplements when it is theirjob? Was this simply a
misprint? What are thejob descriptions for "supervisor
of special programs," "county-wide reading coach" or
degreed paraprofessional"? -I do not mean to single
out one area; however, look at the minutes from July
24 in the Aug. 19 Journal.
2. Hiring Practices: Are Liberty County residents
(qualified) hired before "out of the area" residents?:
3. Grants: How many are there in use in our county?
How much of the budget is dependent on grants? What
would happen if grants were cut? If the economy is any
indication, what can we expect? Think people!
I am not picking on certain people. I, and many
others like me, are simply concerned. Please consider
a public forum, and let's work for the betterment of our
school system and our children.
Respectfully yours,
Norman Hall, Bristol

Lack of health care

access means many
"die unnecessarily
To the editor:
Carol Sutton's letter to the editor in the Aug. 26 issue
of the Calhoun-�.berty Journal proved once again that
"Truth" is the first casualty of the health care debate.
Health care reform is n about "ramming socialism
down people's throats" or governmentt controlled
health care." It is all about the government carrying
out its most important duty -- pro cting the lives of
its citizens. The notion that 250+ million Americans
will be "thrown under the bus" in order to provide
50 million uninsured Americans with heah care is a
ludicrous scare tactic. I would sooner believe t "death
panel" stories.
Time and time again, opponents of health are
reform in America have used selected horror stories
from countries with single-payer or "socialized" health
care systems as a method of scaring people away from
supporting reform. Carol Sutton's use of health care
horror stories in Puerto Rico was misleading. Puerto
Rico is a US colony -- it is not an independent country.
A citizen of Puerto Rico is considered a United States
Citizen. Their health care system ig practically the
same as in the United States. They have Medicare;
private insurance, employer-based insurance and public
facilities for the poor. They have good hospitals and
they have bad hospitals. They are also dealing with
skyrocketing insurance premiums and medical costs.
Some of the health insurance companies operating in
Puerto Rico include AETNA, Humana, Blue Cross/Blue
Shield, Hartford, United and Wellpoint. That certainly
doesn't sound like "socialized health care" to me.
Just last month, The Puerto Rico College of Physicians
and Surgeons, representing 11,000 physicians on the
island, lobbied President Obama to create a single-payer
pilot program in order to provide universal coverage
for the island's 4 million residents. Those physicians
understand that the problem with health care today
is not that people don't want it, don't need it or don't
know how to get it. The problem is that people either
can not afford it or their insurance company is denying
There is not enough room in this newspaper for me
to list all the health care horror stories about Americans
who have suffered and died because of lack of access
to health care, denials of coverage from insurance
companies, and medical mistakes that kill at least 40,000
Americans every year. Americans should not take a
position on health care reform based on fear or their
feelings, toward the President -- Instead, they should
base their stance on what this country is capable of and
what our priorities are.

FWC looking for deer

hunter input Sept. 15

North Florida deer hunters are
encouraged to attend a public
meeting from 6 to 8 p.m. Sept.
15 at the Antique Car Museum
in Tallahassee to share their
thoughts about possible changes
to the state's deer hunting zones
and seasons. The museum is at
6800 Mahan Dr.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
is considering changes to the
deer hunting zones and seasons
as part of its deer management
strategic plan and in response to
discilssions earlier this summer
with deer hunters. The meeting
is an opportunity for the public to
learn about possible changes and
share their views with agency staff.
The meeting will feature
a presentation on the latest
agency proposal, followed by a
question-and-answer session. The
FWC is using deer chronology
breeding data, along with hunter
and stakeholder input to draft
anticipated changes to hunting
zones and seasons. The FWC
has deer-breeding information
from most North Florida counties
and several wildlife management
areas, but there are gaps in the
data. Hunter input on the rut may
help close the gaps.
Commission staff recognizes
the value of local knowledge.
and is asking hunters who know
when the rut occurs in their
area to fill out an online survey.
The information will be used to
compare hunters' perceptions of
the rut with scientifically known
conception data.

Man charged with
selling fake crack
A man who told a customer
he didn't have any crack cocaine
but promised to locate some if
he gave him a few minutes was
arrested for selling a fake crack
cocaine rock.
An informant working with the
Blountstown Police Department
approached Theodious Moore
around 4:35 p.m. Aug. 25 in the
area known as "The Cut" to ask
if he had any crack for sale.
Moore said he only had
powder cocaine. He then told the
informant that if he would circle
the block, he could have some for
him when he got back.
When the informant returned,
Moore approached his vehicle
and handed over what he said
was a rock of crack cocaine
in exchange for a $20 bill that
had been marked by the police
The exchange was monitored
by officers. Since the transaction
took place near a church, the
charge against him was enhanced.
Moore, who was out on bond
from a previous charge of selling
cocaine, was charged with sale of
a counterfeit controlled substance
within 1,000 feet of a place of

are more active during the daylight
and less cautious, improving
hunters' chances of seeing them
in the field.
-"Deer hunters want to hunt
during the rut, and we want to
be able to share comprehensive
information with hunters
about when the rut occurs,"
FWC biologist and deer team
coordinator Cory Morea said.
"We realize a lot of hunters know
when the rut happens in their
area, and we want to take this
information and compare it with
our conception data, to see if they
are similar."
To see the latest updates on
proposed deer zones and season
dates, and to comment on the
potential changes, go to MyFWC.

The month of August was an especially hot one for
Congressman Allen Boyd. who made several stops
throughout the panhandle for Town Hall meetings
where he heard complaints, pleas, arguments
and suggestions from constituents about
health care and other topics. After meeting in
Blountstown on Aug. 18, the Congressman
traveled across the bridge into Bristol. .
where he found a smaller, yet no less
vocal group ready to talk with him at the
Liberty County Courthouse. . / .
First to step up to the microphone
was Julius Pullam, who wanted /
to discuss the problems he had
experienced with the WellCare health
plan program. BOTTOM RIGHT: Once
he began speaking, Pullam was reluctant
to give up the floor but after assurances
from Boyd that he would see him after the
meeting, along with a pointed suggestion from
Brigham Shuler that he give others a chance to talk,
SPullam took his seat.
TOP: Jon Kern told Boyd he was concerned about
whether Americans would have a choice not to have
health care. Kern, 62, worked as an EMT and emergency
room nurse for years. Today, he has no health insurance
by choice. "My wife and I don't believe much in the way
medicine is being practiced," he says. "I don't take any
medicine, I don't drink or smoke." As an advocate of
alternative medicine, he doesn't feel it's right that he be
forced to pay for traditional medical care.
ABOVE RIGHT: Donnie Phillips expressed his
concern to the congressman over the cap-arnd-trade
legislation, which he says, "Is obviously going to raise
taxes on everything." Phillips wasn't happy with the
congressman's responses to his questions, but said, "I
give him credit for coming and hearing us out. He was
certainly outnumbered. But I don't think he satisfied a lot
of those in attendance." JOHNNY EUBANKS PHOTOS

What's cooking and who's cooking at BHS?

by Lesa Corlett and Cassie Taylor
This year the BHS lunchroom is not only changing its
image but also transforming the nutritional choice. Instead
of having to sit and look at plain white walls we now get
to see our Tiger Pride splattered on the walls.
As well, the BHS lunchroom program is providing not
only nutritional, but tasty and scrumptious meals while
staying within the requirements of the state school lunch
program and staying within the budget.
Each day we have pleasant and sociable lunchroom
ladies that greet us as we walk in the line asking us how
we are and how our day is going; as a result, they're as.
friendly as Wal-Mart greeters. Mrs. Sandra Dudley and
Mrs. Stephanie Lee offer a healthy salad each day as
an alternate to the healthy regular meal. Our very own
Mrs. Vera Anderson, lunchroom manager, makes use of
the talents and skills of our school lunch employees by
allowing them to do some "Home Cooking."
Mrs. Cristle Taylor manages the "outtake store" which
permits the students of BHS to purchase a variety of ice

creams, chips, drinks and even meals such as chicken
boats. Mrs. Michelle Pitts assists the students in putting
in their lunch account numbers in the computer and
checks the students out. The lunchroom staff is extremely
dedicated and full of life.
Mrs. Marie Granger, the District's Nutrient Specialist,
has submitted the Calhoun County's mission statement for
the lunchroom: "Our mission is to maintain a connection'
between sound nutrition and successful learning by
providing the highest quality food and service possible.
We are committed to creating a program to nourish and
educate the hearts, minds, and body of children while
serving healthy, delicious breakfast and lunch each day
in a warm and friendly atmosphere."
The lunch menu can be viewed on the Blountstown
High School's Web site at blountstownhigh.org under
school lunch menus.
To check your child's lunch account you can go to
www.mealpayplus.org. You will need your child's student
ID number, which can be found on their schedules.

High tech solution to dual enrollment

for Calhoun
by Albert Blackbum
Dual Enrollment classes are a
great way to get a head start on
college while still earning high
school credits; however a certified
teacher must be present to instruct
the class. Without a certified
teacher at Blountstown High
School, the county technicians
went to work to achieve the goal
of using the only certified teacher,
Mrs. Sherry Joyner of Altha
Public School, to teach across
the county.
With both classes equipped
with a projector and a video
camera, ENC 1101/1102 students

County High
tune into the "Sherry Show"
every morning at 7:45 a.m. This
fall students are taking ENC
1101; during the spring semester,
students will take ENC 1102. If
students take both semesters, they
will earn a total of eight English
credits for college. These English
credits will not cost them, their
parents or their scholarship funds
any money.
For many students, these eight
credits are all the English credits
they will require for a four year
degree. Mrs. Joyner is excited
to teach students at both high
schools and some days out of the

week will teach at Blountstown
instead ofAltha to offer one-on-
one attention for the students.

Liberty County used a clock killing offense featuring
a solid veer attack to defeat East Gadsden and Marian-
na in football jamboree action Aug. 28 in Marianna.
LCHS played their first two, two-quarters against
Class 2B East Gadsden. Bulldog quarterback Terrance
Evans took advantage of field position earned after an
East Gadsden turnover to lead the team down the field
and then score a rushing touchdown. Liberty's Stead-
man Williams made the two point conversion to give
the Dawgs an 8-0 lead.
Liberty made their second touchdown against East
Gadsden when Kevin McCray scored another rush-
ing touchdown. After the failed two point conversion,
Liberty led 14-0. The Bulldog defense held the Jaguars
out of the end zone for two quarters by shut-
ting down both the pass and the run, forc-
ing several punts. Liberty did not punt all

BHS Tigers fall to Freeport in Kickoff Class
by Richard Williams, Journal sports writer
The bad news is the Blountstown Tigers lost their Kick
off Classic game to Freeport 36-13, but the good news is
- just like evern.,ther team in the state - the Tigers
start the season vith no wins and no losses on the record.
Against Freeport the Tigers were unable to find the
consistency needed on offense to control the football, and
a couple of turnovers helped to put Blountstown behind
early. .. .
The Tigers received good news in the off season when
they were told they would be dropping a classification;
however the bad news was they were placed in a very
tough district that is also home to Port St. Joe, West Gads-
den, Liberty County, Franklin County and Wewahitchka.
In addition to their district.foes. the Tigers will also
*face Sneads, Chipley, Graceville, Marianna and Baker in
non-district contests.
The Tigers start their season with a home contest Sept.
4 against the Sneads Pirates beginning at 7 p.m. (CT).
During their Kickoff Classic game the Pirates played
Graceville to a tie.

FWC seeks deer hunters' input

at Sept. 15 Tallahassee meeting

North Florida deer hunters
are encouraged to attend a
public meeting from 6 to 8
p.m. Sept. 15 at the Antique
Car Museum in Tallahassee
to share their thoughts about
possible changes to the state's
deer hunting zones and seasons.
The museum is at 6800 Mahan
Dr., Tallahassee.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) is considering changes
to the deer hunting zones and
seasons as part of its deer
management strategic plan and
in response to discussions earlier
this summer with deer hunters.
The meeting is an opportunity
for the public to learn about
possible changes and share their
views with agency staff.
The meeting will feature a
presentation on the latest agency

proposal, followed by a question-
and-answer session. The FWC
is using deer chronology
breeding data, along with hunter
and stakeholder input to draft
anticipated changes to hunting
zones and seasons. The FWC has
deer-breeding information from
most North Florida counties and
several wildlife management
areas, but there are gaps in the
data. Hunter input on the rut
may help close the gaps.
Commission staff recognizes
the value of local- knowledge
and is asking hunters who know
when the rut occurs in their
area to fill out an online survey.
The information will be used to
compare hunters' perceptions of
the rut with scientifically known
conception data.
During rutting periods, bucks
are more active during the

daylight and less cautious,
improving hunters' chances of
seeing them in the field.
"Deer hunters want to hunt
during the rut, and we want to
be able to share comprehensive
information with hunters
about when the rut occurs,"
FWC biologist and deer team
coordinator Cory Morea said.
"We realize a lot of hunters
know when the rut happens in
their area, and we want to take
this information and compare it
with our conception data, to see
if they are similar."

To see the latest updates
on proposed deer zones and
season dates, and to comment
on the potential changes, go to
MyFWC.com/Deer and fill out
the rut survey. To reach, Morea

Florida recorded 54 boating
fatalities in 2008, with more
than 70 percent of the victims
drowning. Typically, deaths
occurred from falls overboard or
vessels capsizing or flooding. The
FWC urges boaters to purchase
and wear an inflatable life jacket
while boating.
Most of Florida's reportable
boating accidents involved a boat
running into another boat, a fixed
object, a person in the water or
a submerged object. The FWC
also reminds boat operators to
maintain 360-degree awareness
at.all times when on the waters
to help avoid collisions.
"Unfortunately, as boat
registrations increase so does
the need for boater education
and safety practices to reduce
the frequency of accidents on
congested waterways," Moore
He said tragedies too often mar
holiday weekends.

The FWC and many of its
boating safety partners offer
boating safety courses to the
public. For information, visit

Spiders are a gardener's partner in pest control

Dog Days or "the dog days
of summer,"refers to the hot-
test, most sultry days of sum-
mer. I've often wondered if, in
Northwest Florida, we should
call this time of year the "spi-
der days of summer" due.o the
abundance of these creatures.
Florida has plenty of spi-
ders, and you've probably seen
them around your landscape.
You may have even accident-
ly run into them. Most aren't
harmful to people, and, in fact,
are considered beneficial.
Spiders are beneficial inhab-
itants of any garden or ecosys-
tem because of their important
contributions to biological
control of pest insects. Spiders
are considered to be one of
the most important terrestrial
predators, eating tons of pest
insects or other small arthro-
pods every year. Spiders are
generalist predators that are
willing to eat almost any insect
they can catch.
There are two general
groups of spiders-the web

spinners and the hunters. Web
spinning spiders create elabo-
rate silk orbs to capture their
prey. These spiders are typi-
cally found in, or near, their
webs laying in wait for their
next meal. Hunting spiders are
typically robust and actively
track-down their prey.
SSome of our most noticeable
summer spiders are the web
spinning orb-weavers. They
build the large spiral wheel-
shaped webs often found in
gardens, fields and forests.
One of our most conspicuous
orb-weavers is the large golden
silk spider, also known as the
banana spider. The banana spi-
der preys on a wide variety of
small to medium sized flying
insects, which include mosqui-
toes, grasshoppers, stinkbugs,
leaf-footed bugs, bees, but-
terflies, flies, small moths and
wasps. Banana spiders have
even been seen feeding on bee-
tles and dragonflies. Because.
of its size, people sometimes
assume that the banana spider
is dangerous to people. In real-
ity, it is a shy spider (as nearly
all spiders are).
There is little danger to a
healthy adult from an encoun-
ter with the banana spider. It


will only bite if held or pinched
and the bite itself will produce
a localized pain with a slight
redness, which quickly goes
away. On the whole, the bite
is much less severe than a bee
string. It is best avoided, but it
won't kill you.
Another common web-
weaving spider is the spiny-
orb weaver. One of the more
colorful spiders in Florida, it is
not as large as some of the oth-
er common orb weavers. It is,
however, easily recognizable
because of its "crab" shape and
six pointed abdominal projec-
tions frequently referred to as
Another common garden
spider that may give you a bit
of a fright due to its black and
red coloration is the orchard
spider. This small spider with
red markings may make you
think it's a black widow. How-
ever, this orb weaver is associ-
ated with a large web, typically
visible along the edge of gar-
dens, shrub beds and forests.
The venomous black widow,
however, is usually found out-
doors in protected places, such
as under rocks and boards.
Garden spiders aren't ag-
gressive. If you disturb one, a
garden spider will vibrate the
web and try to look larger to
discourage predators. If this
doesn't work, it will drop to the
ground and hide.
So, if you happen to see
one of these creatures, leave it
alone. The benefits of having
a garden spider in your yard
or garden greatly outweigh
the negatives. As opportunistic
feeders, they eat many insect
.pests. These magnificent spi-
ders are welcome alternatives
to pesticides.

Week of
Aug. 23 toAug. 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 - Nov 23/Dec 21
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 awhile.

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.

FSU football fans advised to arrive early on game day

by Libby Fairhurst
The Florida State University
Seminoles gear up for a Labot Day
date with the Miami Hurricanes
at the first of six home football
games this season, FSU police are
urging fans, especially students,
to review game-day policies and
note new ones that may affect
their entry and seating at Doak
Campbell Stadium.
Savvy Seminoles will make
arriving early a winning part
of their game plan all season
long, starting with the Miami
game (Sept. 7; kickoff 8 p.m.
ET), which will feature a special
tribute to the late Naval fighter
pilot Capt. Michael "Scott"
Speicher (B.S. '80). Speicher
became the first combat casualty
for.American forces in the first
Persian Gulf War when his plane
was shot down January 17, 1991,
by an Iraqi warplane during the
early hours of Operation Desert
"We encourage FSU football
fans to arrive early so they don't
miss any of the action on the field
-- or, this year, in the sky as well,"
said FSU Police Department
Chief David Perry.
Students should be prepared
for two big changes: general
seating and a new seating section,
located in an expanded north end
The new general seating policy
for students is as easy as 1-2-3,
according to the FSU Division of
Student Affairs:
* Only ONE seat per person,
first come, first served; no saving
* The stadium opens TWO
hours before kickoff; suggested
entry gates for students are K, L
and M.
* All lines outside the gates
open THREE hours prior to
kickoff -- no lines may form
prior to that time; no tailgating
in line; no holding places in line

for friends.
As always, students must have
their FSU ID with them to enter
with a student ticket.
"The general seating policy
may involve a learning curve,"
Perry said. "Now, students can't
filter into games at any time and
still be assured of a seat in a
particular location."
The Labor Day tribute at Doak
Campbell Stadium will honor
Capt. Speicher, whose remains
were recently recovered from
a remote region of Iraq and
positively identified. When the
first Gulf War began, then Lt.
Cmdr. Speicher was an F/A-18
Hornet pilot assigned to Strike
Fighter Squadron 81 (VFA-81),
also known as the Sunliners,
stationed at Naval Air Station
Cecil Field near Jacksonville, Fla.
Perry said the event is expected to
include a Navy flyover in missing
man formation, performed, by
members of Speicher's former
squadron, now stationed at Naval
Air Station Oceana (Virginia
Beach). The tribute is slated for
broadcast to Naval personnel
worldwide, including those aboard
aircraft carriers and submarines.
Dignitaries and Speicher family
members are invited to attend.
In 1993, FSU honored the
fallen soldier and alumnus by
naming the Scott Speicher Tennis
Center in his honor.
For complete information
all season on home-game day
policies and procedures --
including maps of traffic routes,
parking lots and Spirit Express
Shuttle locations -- fans should
visit the FSU Police Department
Web site www.police.fsu.edu/
and follow the game day link.
For security purposes, as in

2008, all football tickets will
have barcodes that must be
individually scanned before
each fan is permitted to enter
the stadium, and no one will be
allowed to re-enter the stadium
once he or she exits.
To provide extra protection
for children and the elderly or
disabled in case they become
separated from family members
before, during or after the game,
Perry said the FSUPD will, upon
request, provide color-coded ID
wristbands marked with seat and
contact numbers.
As in years past, Tallahassee
Police Department officers will
staffthe intersections surrounding
the stadium before and after
home games. All stadium parking
traffic must use Pensacola
Street. Westbound traffic on
West Jefferson Street before,
during and after home games
will not have access to stadium
parking. While traffic direction
will not be changed prior to
games, afterwards, traffic will be
routed one way eastbound-only
on both Pensacola Street and
Gaines Street.
St. Augustine Street will be
used exclusively for the Spirit
Express Shuttle, operated by
Star Metro. Fans are encouraged
to park at the Tallahassee-Leon
County Civic Center or in nearby
state parking garages and take
the shuttle to the stadium. The

cost is $3 per person round trip;
children under 12 ride free.
Shuttle service begins two hours
prior to kickoff.
Handicapped parking will be
located at the Civic Center, where
specially designated Star Metro
shuttles will be available. On
the FSU campus, every lot has a
certain number of handicapped
and disabled parking spaces. For
information about handicapped
and disabled parking in a Seminole
Booster-permitted lot, call FSU
Parking Services at (850) 644-
5278 or the university's Student
Disability Resource Center at
(850) 644-9566 (voice) or (850)
644-8504 (TDD for the D/deaf).
The FSUPD reminds fans
that golf carts without official
authorization and required
placards won't be permitted in or
around the stadium. For details,
go to the FSUPD web site www.
This year, police are also
emphasizing the safe disposal of
all charcoal. And now in its sixth
season, the "Garnet and Gold
Goes Green" recycling program
and its volunteers will have 15
recycling stations set up in the
lots surrounding the stadium.
Once inside the stadium, fans
must follow these now-familiar

* No smoking except in

* No baby carriages or chair

* No alcoholic beverages
(Possession of alcohol in the

possible criminal charges.)
Again this year, fans at home
games can call (850) 645-JERK
(5375) for any problems with
unruly or abusive behavior in
their section. Law enforcement
officers will respond promptly
and take appropriate action if
Perry reminds everyone that
FSUPD preparations for home
games begin a day or more before
each matchup and affect access
to certain roads and parking lots
around Doak Campbell Stadium
and in other parts of the Florida
State campus:
* In the afternoon prior to
each home game, university
police will begin closing off
roads and posting "no parking"
signs in various locations around
the stadium. Fans who park
in prohibited areas, such as
landscaped areas and sidewalks,
are subject to being ticketed or
having their vehicle towed.
* The stadium will be closed
at 2 p.m. on the day preceding
each game; Stadium Drive will
be closed down at 5 a.m. on each
game day; and Coyle E. Moore
Athletic Center will be closed to
fans two hours before each home

Community response from Altha has been tremendous since we announced the
very difficult decision to close the-Superior Bank branch in Altha at the end of
September. We have heard from public officials, citizens and business owners
in addition to our customers. After reviewing the comments and hearing the
community support for the Altha branch, we have reconsidered our decision
and have announced that we will not be closing the Altha branch.

In making this decision, we are committing our resources to help make the Altha
branch a profitable full service branch that will add value to our branch network.
We will continue to operate the branch as a full service location and continue to
offer all the financial products and services you expect from your bank.

For us to be successful, WE NEED YOUR HELP. As with any business, our
success is dependant on our customers, and in this case we need your business.
If you are a member of the Altha community and you feel it is important
to keep Superior Bank as a contributing member of the community,
show us your support. If you or your business does not bank with Superior, we
invite you to stop by our office and meet Sonya Edenfield and her team. Let them
talk with you about the benefits of banking with Superior.

We look forward to your support and working with you to help make Altha an
even stronger community.
