Emory Pierce, 64, spoke with the council that afternoon. Two other candidates were interviewed after him. Two others who were scheduled to meet with the board that day dropped out of the running; one that very morning, the other, just a couple of days earlier after learning he had gotten another job. Once the interviews were completed, the council tallied up their score sheets. Pierce received 430 points of a possible 450, while local applicant Nathan Goodman had 347 points and Don Hart of Tallahassee received 270 points. A native of Gainesville who got his engineering degree from the University of Florida, Pierce joined the Army as a young man, went on to get a degree in business and worked in construction before returning to school to become an engineer. He has done consulting work in Jacksonville and worked for the Aqueduct Authority in the Florida Keys. He has worked as an engineer for the past 20 years, spending 12 years as the Brooksville Public Works Director. We liked the fact that he is a civil engineer and has done a lot of in-house engineering in Brooksville, said Blountstown City Council member Tony Shoemake. He will be able to give the council some guidance on engineering matters even when we are dealing with an outside engineer. He added that having an engineer in the city managers job will also save money, noting that it costs between $1,000 and $2,500 to have architect sign off on plans. During Fridays interview Pierce explained he lost that job in Sept. 2009 after Brooksville City Manager Jennene Emory Pierce to begin duties soon.Former Brooksville Public Works Director hired as new Blountstown City ManagerLost hikers found in training drill at Torreya State Park Plaque honors Wilhoit EubanksIris Eubanks, seated, talks with Liberty County Commissioner Albert plaque in honor of her late husband, J.W.

TERESA EUBANKS PHOTO by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorEmergency workers were put to the test last week when they were sent out on a mock call at Torreya State The location of the training drill was chosen because of the challenges it offers, according to Liberty County Emergency Management Director Rhonda Lewis. The combination of hills and ravines provide many places for a park visitor to get lost. Radio and cell phone communication is spotty because of the parks distance from the nearest cell phone tower. Despite the obstacles, searchers completed their task in approximately one hour, according to Torreya Park Manager Steve Cutshaw. It was a perfect scenario and worked exactly as it should, said Cutshaw. Volunteers responded to a radio pageout at 6:45 p.m. Thursday. When they gathered at the park they were told they were responding to a report from a frantic mother who had not heard from her 16-year-old son who was camping there. Searchers divided up into teams and began the hunt for the missing teen, played by Cutshaws son, Heath. Planners threw in some surprises for participants, telling them the camper had not registered and could be anywhere within a 2,000-acre block of the park, except for the primitive campsites, which had already been searched. Teams hit the trails and worked around communication problems to keep in touch. One team located a teenage lost while trying to get help for the other teen, who had See LOST HIKER DRILL continued on page 3 See CITY MANAGER HIRED continued on page 3by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorA man who had moved into a Bristol home just four days earlier was arrested for possession of methamphetamine and manufacturing methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a church Thursday.

A deputy was dispatched to the NE Bo Street residence in Hosford on July 12 after Abbie Fletcher, who was outside with her family, heard voices coming from the back yard behind a fence. She followed the sound and saw Cody Tucker, 19, and 18-yearold James Harold Blocker digging through a trash pile. Fletcher reported seeing both take a dryer from her property to a truck parked next door. The two were arrested for petty theft and trespassing.

The front left of his car collided with the front left of a westbound 2006 International truck, driven by Carlos Byrd, 28, of Tallahassee. The impact sent Granthams car spinning before it came to a final rest in the eastbound lane. The truck rotated in a counter-clockwise direction before overturning, blocking both lanes. Both men were transported to Bay Medical Center. The crash was investigated by FHP Trooper C. Condo-Varner. Grantham was cited for failure to maintain a single lane.

The script for the drill called for the second hiker to be a diabetic who was found in a disoriented state. Their target was discovered around 9:15 p.m. at the highest point in the park Logans Hill, which is about four miles southeast of the Gregory Home in the park. It was a little more of a challenge than being in the national forest or at the river, said Lewis. I was impressed with our guys, she said, noting that most brought their own equipment including cell phones, We may not have all the bells and whistles but we were able to utilize what we have in a very efficient manner, she said. She hopes to on hand for future searches and would like to equip each team with a handheld GPS as well as good quality These exercises help us get better at what we do and recognize our shortfalls, Lewis said. What did they learn? Communication is always an issue, she said. Searchers going through the park had to use a talkaround channel on their radios and had to climb up to the tops of ravines to be heard. The drill also raised questions about locating a basket to move out an injured person. While the park has an ATV, its important to know who has fourwheelers that can be borrowed for longer searches. And, she added with a laugh, We all learned we need to get in better shape to make it up all those hills. Above all, she said, Liberty County has dedicated volunteers who show up to help and give it all they have. Theyre doing this for no pay and no glory, Lewis said. It makes me really proud. About 30 emergency workers took part in the drill, which was coordinated by The Management Experts, who set up the School Shooter Drill at Tolar School in May of 2010 and a couple of months later at Blountstown Elementary School. The training programs are paid for with Homeland Security funds. About twice a year, the park gets a report of a missing hiker. Sometimes rangers have to call on additional help from Liberty County Search and Rescue. drill on the grounds of the state park and gave volunteers a chance to familiarize themselves with how to work in the area.

The citys part of the project was routing the trail through an abandoned railroad switching yard, he said. Pierce, who said he was working under a use it or lose it funding deadline, got an exemption for the work and believed that the shortcuts he had proposed were allowable under that exemption. He consulted with an agency inspector before installing an 18-inch culvert to solve a drainage issue but didnt learn until later that it violated the permit exemption, according to a news story on tampabay. com. He was placed on leave and then fired by Norman-Vacha. Less than a year later, Pierce qualified to run for Brooksville City Council. While his sole opponent decided to seek another seat on the board, Pierce went into office unopposed and became one of the people overseeing his former boss. Pierce told tampabay.com that he didnt pursue the job to retaliate against her. He said he wanted to help build up local businesses, build up tourism, streamline government services and be a part of good, responsible government. Pierce sees his new position with Blountstown as mutually beneficial, explaining, They have some construction projects coming up Im very familiar with. As a former public works director, Ive dealt with many of the things that will be going on in Blountstown. He adds, I think Ive got the skill set and the experience to help them out. Im looking forward to it. Pierce, his wife, Alison and their five-year-old daughter, Alexis, will be making the move to Blountstown soon. Pierce was still on the drive home, when he got the news that he was hired. Interim City Manager Traci Hall dialed his cell number and held up the phone, putting it on speaker, so that Mayor Winston Deason could congratulate him and urge him to begin his duties at your earliest opportunity. Hall will continue as interim manager for 30 days before returning to her primary duties as the citys The search for a new city manager began after a 3-2 vote not to rehire James Woods in early January. The City received over 70 applications. Blountstown City Council member Janie Boyd (far right) questions an applicant during Fridays interviews for a new city manager.

Quincy native and award-winning artist Dean Mitchell returns to the Gadsden Arts Center this month to share the largest collection of Mitchell paintings ever shown at one time in the region. The Dean Mitchell: Rich in Spirit exhibition, opening July 29 at 6 p.m., celebrates the extraordinary qualities in ordinary things and people who are poor in material wealth, but rich in intangible ways. Rich in Spirit includes paintings of Gadsden Countys architecture and people, a testament to those who quietly, and with dignity, struggle to support each other and their community, demonstrating the beauty in scenes overlooked by most people. Artist Dean Mitchell will offer a Gallery Talk on opening night at 6:30 p.m. Celebrate a Taste of Gadsden County from 79 p.m. immediately following the Gallery Talk, as ten local restaurants showcase a variety of special ties for guests to sample. The Dean Mitchell: Rich in Spirit exhibition is a must see cultural event for our region. Characterized as a modernday Vermeer by New York Times art critic Michael Kimmelman, Mitchells work has been lauded by collectors, museums, and galleries nationwide. He is said to capture the soul of his subject matter, the spirit behind the people and places he paints, commenting on society through symbolism and a rich, textural, and luminescent painting style. One doesnt merely look at a Dean Mitchell painting; one feels it and is drawn into it, and the impression lingers in the memory long afterward.... That is the greatness of his art, said Canton Museum of Art Executive Director, M.J. Albacete. The exhibition will continue through October 29, 2011 with guided tours available by calling 627-5020, and the Mainstreet Caf open daily. The Gadsden Arts Center is located on Quincys historic Courthouse Square at 13 N. Madison St., just 10 miles from Tallahassee City Limits. Gallery, gift shop, and caf hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Admission is $1 (members and children admitted free). Dean Mitchell: Rich in Spirit exhibition opens July 29 at Gadsden Arts Center Guest instructors Bernadette Sims and Lauren Hamilton, both of The Northwest Florida Ballet ,were in residence in Bristol for a Summer Intensive Workshop the week of July 11. Sims founded the Northwest Florida Ballet approximately 40 years ago and Hamilton is a professional ballerina under contract to the Connecticut Ballet. The workshop was sponsored by the Bristol Ballet School under the direction of Bonita Deck. Eighteen young ladies, ranging in ages 8 to 16 years and from four counties, who are enrolled in the schools gifted program attended. Not only was classical ballet and character dance taught during the workshop but the students also enjoyed classes in shapes and sketching and watercolors, presented by Sims. The students also enjoyed a class on beginner photography taught by Blountstown photographer Ben Hall. At the end of the week the students par ticipated in a performance for their families which included choreography by both Sims and Deck. Artwork created by the young ladies and a slide show of the weeks activities was on display. The performance was held at Veterans Memorial Civic Center in Bristol. Our community should be very proud of the talent displayed by the local young ladies.

Page 6 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL JULY 20, 2011 COMMENTARYThere still is, we learned last week, genuine hope for the human race. It was not to be found here in Washington, where noisy public squabbling over whether to take the United States into Chapter 11 or to raise the nation's legal debt limit has continued to dominate. No, hope came to us in the unlikely and hefty 6-foot, 5-inch form of a young cell-phone salesman named Christian Lopez of Highland Mills, N.Y. The reason Lopez's name may sound at least vaguely familiar is that he, a lifelong Yankees fan, was in the bleachers where he snagged Yankee captain Derek Jeter's 3,000th career hit, a home run. The red-blooded, free-market thing for Lopez to do next was to auction the historic baseball on eBay, where even in this dismal economy, he could have expected to get well over the $220,100 Andrew Morbitzer was paid in 2006 for the baseball Barry Bonds hit for his 715th home run. But Lopez, a 2010 graduate of St. Lawrence University and carrying more than $100,000 in student loan debt, announced immediately that he would forego "I'm going to give it to Derek," Lopez announced during the game. And as he later explained to reporters: "It wasn't about the money -it's about a milestone. I mean, Mr. Jeter deserved it. ... Money's cool and all, but I'm only 23 years old, and I have a lot of time to make that. It's his accomplishment." These, I submit, are the refreshing words of an exceptionally classy young man. Oscar Wilde once knows the price of everything and knows the value of nothing. By that standard, Christian Lopez -who simply did the right thing as he saw it -may qualify as the most uncynical human being in the Western Hemisphere. He was immediately criticized in print and on talk shows for being a sucker and not cashing in on his big chance. For me, an unreconstructed Boston fan, the New York Yankees have always inspired an unadulterated hate. The gifted Bill Mead put it well: "Most all good Americans hate the Yankees. It's a value we cherish and pass on to our children like decency, democracy and the importance of a good breakfast. "Asked why, Mead explained: They're spoiled rotten. They think they're such Hot Stuff. Their owner is obnoxious. Their fans are gross and rude." Of course, neither Mead nor I ever met Yankee fan Christian Lopez, to whom the openhanded Yankees organization did give four luxury seats to every game for the rest of this season -including the playoffs -and a bunch of Yankee attire and memorabilia. Here is where the decency of Lopez becomes infectious. Because he could face a tax bill of up to $13,000 on the expensive seats he was given and because "Miller High Life believes you should be rewarded for doing the right thing, not penalized," that brewer publicly offered to pay whatever Christian owes to IRS. Then Brandon Steiner of Steiner Sports and Mitchell Modell of Modell Sporting Goods each pledged a minimum of $25,000 toward paying off Christian's student loans. Just maybe, as St. Thomas Aquinas taught us, goodness really is diffusive of itself. At this dreary time when runaway greed and organized selfishness are epidemic -in both public and private life -the spontaneous, natural generosity and class of Christian Lopez, a new Pride of the Yankees, lift my spirits and rekindle my hope.

JULY 20, 2011 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 7 COMMENTARY WASHINGTON Few of us ever will meet a Medal of Honor recipient. Fewer still ever will have the opportunity to be of assistance to one. In part, that's because "The Medal" -our nation's highest military decoration, awarded for "conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of life above and beyond the call of duty" -is worn by just 85 living Americans. Since we were attacked on 9/11, the Medal of Honor has been awarded only nine times to the more than 2 million Americans who have served in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Excerpts from the citation for then-Staff Sgt. Petry wounded his fellow soldiers, and a second grenade landed in their midst. "Instantly realizing the danger, Staff Sergeant Petry, unhesitatingly and with complete forward, picked up the grenade, and in an effort to clear the immediate threat, threw the grenade away from his "amputating his right hand at the wrist and further injuring him with multiple shrapnel wounds." But that's only part of the remarkable story of a modest American hero and his exceptional family. He is also the recipient of two Bronze Stars and a Purple Heart from two combat tours in Iraq and six deployments to Afghanistan. He, his wife and their four children know all too well the challenges military families face as they cope with multiple deployments and life-changing injuries. They also know that the American people care. Because of the severity of Petry's wounds, he had to endure multiple surgeries and more than two years of recuperation at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio. While he was recovering there, the Petry family received support and encouragement from Freedom Alliance, an organization devoted to those who serve our nation in uniform. On two occasions while he was at to help his family with travel expenses that were not covered by the government. That support wasn't provided just because Petry is a Medal of Honor recipient. When the calls come into the Freedom Alliance Heroes Support Center from a military hospital, all that matters is that a wounded service member's family needs help. The Petrys are just one example of the hundreds of wounded military personnel and their families whom Freedom Alliance has provided four years. That's not all Freedom Alliance does for those serving our country. Thus far this year, the organization has sent thousands of Gifts from Home care packages to troops deployed overseas. Freedom Alliance also hosts and sponsors hundreds of dinners, picnics and "family days" every year to honor the troops and their families. Thanks to Sean Hannity and Fox News, the Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund has provided more than $4 million in college scholarships to the children of service members who have been killed or permanently disabled in combat or other operational missions. And it doesn't end there. being made on faraway battlefields and by military families here at home have made it possible for the Freedom Alliance Heroes Support Center to provide a broad array of programs for the troops, their spouses and their children. Taking hurting heroes to Major League trips, hunting/sporting weekends and "dream vacations" all across America isn't intended to make headlines. But one wounded Marine put it this way during a recent outing: "It's the best time I've had since I got hit in Afghanistan." As we watched the White House ceremony in which Sgt. 1st Class Leroy Petry was being awarded the Medal of Honor, I turned to Tom Kilgannon, president of Freedom Alliance, to congratulate him on the quiet help recovery. Kilgannon shrugged and responded, "It's what we do."The remarkable story of Medal of Honor recipient Leroy PetryBY OLIVER NORTHOliver North is the host of War Stories on Fox News Channel, the founder and honorary chairman of Freedom Alliance, and the author of American Heroes in Special Operations. Turning back to the Constitution is the only answer to solvencyTo the editor, Coxs Corner, A $100 billion misunderstanding is misleading and full of misinformation. Mr. Cox invokes the 14th Amendment in order to try to legitimize the plunder of this and future generations, while using the threat of the Supreme Court as an incantation for totalitarianism. The fact is that the Constitution gives only the House of raise the debt ceiling. Anything else is the subordination of the individual to the state. George W. Bush was a big government president and did allow Congress to spend too much. That doesnt allow any other president to spend us into oblivion. Mr. Cox stated that Barack Obama only increased our debt by $1.573 trillion. The truth is when he took over the White House the national debt was $9 trillion. Now it is $14 trillion, We all hear the words millions, billions and trillions, but do we really understand the difference? Here is an analogy that I like to use to explain the difference: If you had a stack of $1,000 bills, it would be 6 1/2 inches high to equal one million dollars; it would be 68 feet high to equal one billion dollars; it would be 6 1/2 miles high to equal one trillion dollars. The fact is that unless we stop the unbridled spending, this nation into third world poverty. Turning back to the Constitution is the answer to solvency. We have to reestablish constitutional restraints on federal power. We must vote in Constitutional conservatives and join the local Tea Party and link arms to save this great republic and our liberty. We no longer have the luxury of sitting back and doing nothing. It will take all of us working together.

Page 14 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL JULY 20, 2011 As the heat and humidity increases in Northwest Florida, expect to see some diseases appear in the landscape. One problem that is popping up on crapemyrtles is Cercospora leaf spot. While not a deadly problem, it can greatly detract from the beauty of crapemyrtles. The initial symptom on crapemyr tles is the appearance of tan to dark brown spots randomly scattered on yellow to red discolored leaves. The and progress upward in the canopy. Spots will continue to develop from mid-summer through fall. The color change is due to the production of a toxin by the fungal pathogen. Infected leaves will drop prema turely and serve as a source to spread the pathogen causing further disease development. As the summer progresses, many infected trees will have dropped all but the newest leaves. Older varieties of crapemyrtles are more susceptible to this disease than newer varieties. The crapemyrtle varieties most tolerant to Cercospora leaf spot are Natchez, Muskogee, Bashams Party Pink, Sioux and Tonto. Long term, this disease is not detrimental to a tree, although it will slow down growth on younger plants. Plants growing in conditions that are not ideal will be more affected by the leaf spot disease. The best control is selecting a planting site with good air circulation so that the foliage will dry quickly. Thinning interior branches will also The use of fungicides to control this disease has not been very effective because they would have to be applied repeatedly on a regular basis throughout the growing season. If used, fungicide applications should be started in early summer when the at one to two week intervals when the weather is warm and wet. Confungicide recommendations. As always, be sure to read and follow all label directions. Fungicides the fungus or how they work on the plant. Products that work in a similar way on fungi have the same mode of action (also referred to as chemical family or class). Contact fungicides are sprayed onto plants and act as a protective barrier from pathogen infection. They prevent infections from occur ring when applied before symptoms are visible, but infections that have already occurred will continue to develop. Systemic fungicides move into the plant, but movement inside the plant is limited. The vast majority of fungicides only move upward in the plant vasculature, but not down. Some fungicides only move locally into the plant part treated. Some systemic products exhibit curative action, which means the disease is stopped during its development. For managing fungicide resistance, products with different modes of action should be used in rotations. Since this disease will result in early defoliation or the loss of leaves, it is critical to practice good sanitation. Raking and destroying fallen leaves should be a routine practice in order to prevent the spread of the disease.Seeing spots on crapemyrtle may mean a disease problem by Theresa Friday, Horticulture Extension Agent, Santa Rosa County GARDENING 11049 NW STATE ROAD 20 I N BR I S TOL Phone (850) 643-5454 Located in BristolLAND CLEARING-Private drives and roads -Food plots -Home sites -Small acreageCall Eddie Nobles at (850) 643-5390 or (850) 447-0449 or Chas (850) 447-0849Eddie NoblesLAND CLEARING, EXCA V A TION AND ROOT RAKING FOR: We've got the fence posts to meet your needs.Dempsey Barron Road, Bristol (off Hwy. 12 N) Phone (850) 643-5995 Liberty Post & Barn Pole Inc.DOTHAN On Saturday, July 23, at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., Landmark Park will celebrate national watermelon month with a watermelon harvest and sampling.

The above is to be published in the Calhoun-Liberty Journal 7-20-11 & 7-27-11. by Ginny Hinton, UF/IFAS Family & Consumer Sciences Extension Agent for Santa Rosa County It's summertime, and the livin' is itchy especially if you spend time outside during dusk or dawn. The best ways to avoid mosquito bites are to stay out of mosquito-infested areas, wear protective clothes, and use insect repellant. According to the EPA, correct use of products containing DEET is not a health concern, while "natural" repellants may not always be safe alternatives, especially if used in high concentrations. Best practice is to always follow the label instructions and use only repellants approved by the EPA. Also avoid repellants combined with sunscreens. Because sunscreens are designed to be used frequently and liberally, too much repellant may be applied even when the product is used as directed. It's best to apply to be sure each product works cor rectly. Some popular ways to prevent mosquito bites are surprisingly ineffective. For example, there is no evidence that any sound-emitting devices will repel mosquitoes. There is also no garlic, onions, or other foods to make you less attractive to mosquitoes. A mosquitos attraction is based on a complex interaction of both chemical and visual signals, so certain foods may work to keep the insects away from one person but not another. Bug zappers dont work well either. Studies show that they dont reduce the number of mosquitoes and they kill other bugs, like moths and beetles, more than they kill mosquitoes. The bottom line is, if you dont want to feel the itch, take steps to avoid mosquitoes. dawn and avoid places that are calm, shady and humid. fewer bites youll get. water near your house and use an EPA-approved repellant according to the label directions.Condensed from Mosquitoes: How to Avoid Their Bites, www.solutionsforyourlife.com.
