They were told Williams was traveling in a maroon Honda Accord that belonged to his girlfriend, Amanda Tucker-Hamlin, 23, of Altha.

The deputy also noted that neither the driver, identified as Deborah Smith, 38, nor Shelton, who was the passenger, were using their seat belt. The deputy told the driver why she had been stopped and asked Shelton to step out of the truck. He told both women he wanted to search their purses; Smith consented but Shelton refused. A drug dog was then used to conduct a free air sniff around the truck and if the canine alerted on the vehicle, the deputy advised he would then search it. Shelton told the deputy he did not have probable cause to do so.

CITY TIRE IS YOUR ONE-STOP TIRE SHOP! TIRE STORE! "Authorized DEALER" Wheel Alignments Oil Changes Balancing Brakes Shocks To the editor, John Crocker's recent letter to the editor stated that "... a stack of $1,000 bills... 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." That statement is misleading and full of misinformation. In fact, since one billion dollars equals one thousand million dollars, the stack which equals one billion dollars would be 6,500 inches high, which equals 542 feet -Not 68 feet. And since one trillion dollars equals one thousand billion dollars, the stack which contains one trillion dollars would be 542,000 feet, which equals 103 miles -Not 6 1/2 miles. Perhaps Mr. Crocker was simply being "conservative." Erik Johnson, Bristol Reader offers his response to a conservative commentIts time for our country to stop the insane spendingTo the editor, Coxs Corner, Our pathetic political process, is little more than an emotional rant against Republicans, conservatives and Tea Partiers. He offers little substance and a lot of insults. Im sure that his comrades Barack Obama, Nancy Polosi and Harry Reed, are very proud of him. Mr. Cox invoked the name of James Madison and proclaimed that he would be spinning in his grave, at the current affairs of the government. I believe that he is right, we just disagree on the why. James Madison and Thomas Jefferson were anti-big government and here are their thoughts on the 10th Amendment, which underscores the powers of the states and the people. Whensoever the general government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void and of no force. In essence, a state could nullify interpose its sovereignty against a federal law if it deemed that law unconstitutional. In their view, the Supreme Court did not matter, the Congress did not matter, the president did not matter, it was the states that had the ultimate sovereign authority to protect the rights of the people. If we believe the federal government is exceeding its constitutional authority, the remedy is of the people to defend themselves through their respective state legislatures and governors, where sovereignty rightly resides. Barack Obama said that we commoners had no idea how to budget and only a professional politician had that wisdom. Well, Im ignorant enough to believe that you cant borrow your way out of debt. This is no joke, regardless of past practices, we must stop this insane spending. We do not have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem. Barack Obama is a liar when he says we will default, the 14th Amendment guarantees the payment, which is 15% of our revenue. There is more than enough money for social security, medicare, Disabled American Veterans, active military, law enforce ment, etc... President Ronald Reagan would never have threatened our seniors, our crippled, or our brave military men and women. John Crocker, Kinard grateful customers lost diamondTo the editor, It seems more and more these days that its not often that you get a chance to really that is shown by others. Howreceive such kindness. A few days ago, I discovered that I had lost the diamond out of my engagement ring. Of course I was very disturbed about this and immediately began retracing my steps. I decided to call Lindys Restaurant in Blountstown, where I had lunch. Since I knew that it could have fallen out anywhere, in the back of my mind I really didnt see ing it. When I called Lindys, Chad answered the phone. When I told him what had happened he seemed very concerned and asked me where I was sitting and where I parked. I told him but also told him if he would just sweep, I would come look through everything. It started to sink in to me that the diamond I had worn was probably gone forever. About thirty minutes later Chad called and said he had found my diamond. Now, I was almost in tears from losing it and now was almost in tears that he had found it. I told him I would be there immediately to get it. When I got there Tanya gave it to me with a big smile on her face. She said that when Chad initially looked for it he Tanya and Chad did not give up. They pulled the booth out where I had been sitting and through their extra time and effort, they found it. You know, most people that are busy making a living would not have taken the time out of their busy day to make such an effort. I appreciate the time and effort that they took to help me retrieve something that was so important to me. The point is that it became important to them also, which to me, is a sign of true integrity and character and that is everyday. Thank you Tanya and Chad for making what could have been an awful experience turn into such a positive one.

Winn recognized some of Floridas highest performing school districts for either maintaining or improving their district grade to an A or having all A or B graded schools in 2011. Of the districts highlighted, 13 have earned an impressive A grade since the inception of district grades in 2004, while 21 districts this year alone have no schools graded lower than a B. Twelve school districts also had schools improve their grades dramatically, moving up to an A from either a D or an F grade last year. It is my pleasure to honor these high-performing districts and schools for the incredible work they do to ensure our students are being prepared for success in life, said Commissioner Winn. Achieving these kinds of results takes a coordinated effort at all levels and I couldnt be more proud of what these students, teachers, school leaders and other dedicated stakeholders were able to accomplish during the last school year. School districts that have consistently earned an A grade since the inception of district grades: Brevard, Calhoun, Charlotte, Clay, Gilchrist, Leon, Martin, Nassau, Okaloosa, St. Johns, Santa Rosa, Sarasota and Seminole. The district grading formula takes into account student performance on reading, writing, mathematics and science state assessments, as well as student learning gains from the previous year. School districts that have all A and B graded schools in 2011: Calhoun, Charlotte, Citrus, Dixie, Franklin, Gilchrist, Gulf, Holmes, Indian River, Jackson, Lafayette, Levy, Liberty, Martin, Nassau, Okaloosa, St. Johns, Santa Rosa, Sumter, Union and Walton.TALLAHASSEE The Florida Department of Education (DOE) launched an education-centered YouTube channel that provides informative video content to a variety of education stakeholders throughout the state. The EducationFL channel features a growing library of videos that will help teachers, parents, students and others enhance their connection to, and understanding of, Florida education. This new video channel also helps to enhance the Departments expanding social media presence and provide new ways of collecting stakeholder input. The Department is always looking for new and creative ways to increase awareness and understanding of Floridas education system and the ongoing efforts to improve it, said Education Commissioner John L. Winn. We see this as a great opportunity to provide visually enhanced content that accomplishes that goal, while helping to create new dialogue opportunities with Florida residents and educators. The newly created channel features a variety of content intended for a wide range of audiences. Some notable videos include helpful updates related to ongoing changes to many aspects of the states education system, useful tips teachers can use in their classrooms, ways parents can get involved in their childs education, literacy public service announcements, event celebrations and a self-written rap video about reading performed by at-risk youth. The Department has also created social media acaudiences. To view these sites or to learn more about DOE launches educationthemed YouTube channel
You leave on vacation and everything in the landscape is alive and well. You recompletely dead shrub in the midst of several other healthy ones. What happened? Plants can die or severely decline surprising quickly. It happens more often in the summer months due to the increase demand for water. However, the cause may have been there for months or even years. There are a number of reasons why plants die suddenly and sometimes the cause. Reasons why a plant, whether a tree, a shrub, a ground cover or bedding plant may suddenly die include cultural, environmental and physiological factors. Cultural factors are things applied or done to the plant that it doesnt like. Physiological factors include things within the plant that causes or triggers disease or death. Cultural and environmental factors are probably the most common causes of sudden death and include everything from water stress to a leaky gas line on the mower. In a vast number of sudden death cases, the cause is either too much or too little water. Even the best gardeners loose plants to drought. Combine water repellant soils to irrigation problems and plants can die of dehydration. One way to investigate this cause is to dig down into the soil to a depth of roughly one foot and see how moist it is. Incorrect fertilization can also lead to sudden death. Spilling or applying too much fertilizer results in a large, rapid buildup of soil salts around the roots and this effectively causes moisture to be sucked out of the plant, which can lead to death by dehydration. Another reason for sudden death is root injury. If a large proportion of the roots are damaged by pruning to install fences, pools or driveways, plants can be severely damaged. If impervious paving is installed, it blocks moisture from penetrating and stops the soil from breathing. Plant roots need oxygen to operate, so if thats cut off they can die. Normally one side of the tree or shrub declines much more rapidly than the other. A more ominous reason of sudden death is mushroom root rot. This disease is caused by a mushroom producing fungus (Armillaria spp.) that feeds on dead and living roots and woody debris in soils. The fungus may remain alive for years on roots and stems, as parasites on living host tissue or as saprophytes on dead woody material. While the best way to identify mushroom root rot is through the honey-colored mushrooms it produces, it is not the quickest. Mushrooms may take many months to emerge. In the absence of mushroom root rot is based on the presence of mycelial fans. Mycelial fans are white mats of fungal material between the inner bark and wood. They tend to have a strong mushroom odor and often have a fan-like pattern. To see these fans, gently scrape off the bark at the base of the dead shrub or tree and look for a creamy layer of material. Although mushroom root rot disease is among the most studied diseases of trees in the world, the fact remains that, in many cases, we do not have an effective, practi cal means of reducing the disease. Remove the dead tree and shrub as soon as possible. An amazing feature of Armillaria is that the mycelium, especially in actively decaying wood, is bioluminescent. Such glowing wood is known Page 14 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL AUGUST 3, 2011Gardening Friends of the Big Bend will have this months meeting at the North Florida Research and Education Center near Quincy at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 9.
