Sometime later, Hendrix walked out of the bar and came around a corner and was confronted by Harris, who began hitting her in the face. Several patrons broke them up. Next, Harris went after Hendrixs sister, Elizabeth, 26, and began hitting her in the face. Others stepped in to separate the women. Harris was arrested for battery on both sisters. Minutes later, deputies received a second call of a physical disturbance at the bar and arrived to find 15 to 20 people gathered outside, many angry and yelling.

ARREST REPORTS compiled by Journal Editor Teresa Eubanks methamphetamineAn Altha man was arrested for possession of methamphetamine, possession of listed chemicals and manufacture of methamphetamine along with a parole violation that he was cooking meth late Friday night. Deputies arrived at the Pennington Avenue residence where David Lee Adkins, 35, was staying. When deputies went inside the home, they noted that there was a strong chemical methamphetamine odor present and the living room was in a haze. They entered Adkins room, where they saw the red glow of a hotplate at the end of his bed. Inside they found Numerous items common to the meth-making process were found, including a plastic bottle with a bi-layer liquid inside, a funnel and a glass plate that both had meth residue and an eye dropper bottle believed to hold acid. Numerous components for a meth lab were found inside a pair of bags, including suspected ammonium nitrate, suspected acid, crushed pseudoephedrine, suspected lye, stripped lithium batteries, empty blister packs, empty reaction vessels and empty bottles of pseudoephedrine wash. A box with glass plates and glass measuring cups which had meth residue on them was found on the dresser. A woman who sped up after a patrol car drove up behind her intersection of 16th Street and S.R. 20 around 6 p.m. Thursday night. It was noted in the arrest report that Nichols had received information that the driver, Brenda Kay Moore, 48, of Blountstown, had been involved in methamphetamine activity at her home. After approaching the driver, Nichols asked her to step out of the car. He noted that her appearance had altered since her drivers license photo was taken. She had sores all over her arms and legs, and burn scars on her arms, which he noted were consistent with long-term methamphetamine use. During a search, several pills were found in her purse including two Lortab and four other prescription drugs and a marijuana roach. When he opened a small leather pouch that had been in her purse, he found two small containers one held crushed Lortab, which she told he she snorted and the other had short straw and a white methamphetamine. A mirror, three short straws and two razor blades were found in a backpack in the vehicle. Deputies then went to her Mayo Street residence to search the home and the grounds. They discovered a blue canvas bag just inside the woods in the corner of her yard. Inside they found a 20 ounce reaction vessel that held a bilayer of liquid, an eye dropper bottle See ARREST REPORTS on page 3

A member of the city council phoned him Monday night to give him the news. Woods, who was not rehired following a 3-2 vote by the Blountstown City Council earlier this year, will begin his new duties soon. The historic community is located 45 minutes southwest of Atlanta and is known for its many antique shops, gift boutiques and annual Hummingbird Festival. The Hogansville City Council meets in an ornate old Royal Theater building. The Atlanta Journal Constitution dubbed Hogansville, One of the Ten Prettiest Small Towns in Georgia. He said Hogansville is similar in size to Blountstown and is an all-utility city poised for growth. A new car plant is less than 20 minutes from the city and a developer is ready to begin some projects after utility During a recent visit to the city, Woods said he was impressed with the pride of ownership evident throughout the residential areas as well as the friendliness of the business community. The former city manager is retiring and will be around for about a month to help with the transition. But the family isnt saying goodbye to Blountstown.

After the men exchanged words, Venth turned, cursed at Manton and hit him in the jaw, causing him to fall back on his bunk. The next morning, Manton was vomiting and appeared ill. From Jan. 13 through 17, Manton stayed in the dorm, leaving only for occasional meals, according to the report. On Jan. 18, Manton walked out of the dorm to seek medical assistance.

An ambulance was called to the prison and Manton was taken to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. He was pronounced brain dead Jan. 19 and removed from a ventilator the following day. After conducting an autopsy, a doctor ruled that the cause of death was due to complications of traumatic left subdural hematoma, in the area where Manton was struck. In a letter written to his son, Manton identified his attacker as Prince, a nickname Venth is known by. His son turned the letter over to investigators. Manton, who lived in Okeechobee until his arrest, was sentenced Aug. 6, 2010 after entering into a plea agreement with the state in which 33 counts of possession of child pornography would be reduced to one count in exchange for his plea. Manton told the judge at his sentencing he was concerned that he would not get the proper medical care in prison to keep him alive because he suffered a heart attack and underwent bypass surgery the previous year.ARREST REPORTcontinued from page 2of acid, a jar of suspected ammonium nitrate, digital scales, a jar with white residue, a funnel and a set of forceps.

I am thankful and appreciate our caring community and those employed by Liberty County. They do earn a paycheck yes, but some go beyond their job requirements. On Wednesday my sister called 911 on my behalf and within minutes the ambulance with a deputy was at my home wheeling my child out on a stretcher. I felt helpless but they were profes sional, courteous and patient. Their task was to get Trinity to the helicopter safe and alive. Those two ladies executed that beautifully. That night I received a phone call from E.M.T. Melissa expressing her concern for Trinity. I am almost sure if we were in a big town I would have not received that call. I thank God for our town and those in it. Also later that day when I came out of the emergency ICU to give my family an update my heart swelled with joy to see my natural family and my church family waiting and praying for us. We have a great community and great people who live in it. I want to express how thankful I am for all their help that day and how concerned everyone was and how nice they were. My day was intense but those who care made it a little easier Thanks for your time and prayers.

AUGUST 17, 2011 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 7 by Teresa Eubanks, Journal EditorLocal artist Jeff Vickery has done what many people dream of. He quit his full time job to pursue his passion. Hes always enjoyed art but longed to do something bigger than life by painting murals. Last year, he made the wall of the Snowden Land Surveying building on North Pear Street fanciful lettering, a dark background of trees and reproduced a series of black and white photos that prompted passers by to stop for a few minutes just to take it all in. showcase his work. Rather than tell people about it, I thought Id show them, he said. It worked. Members of the Blountstown Main Street program took notice, along with just about everybody else who drives along North Pear Street. Main Street allotted money from past fundraisers to pay for his latest effort, which just went up on the west wall of The Diamond Corner at S.R. 71 and S.R. 20. Vickery began putting the 10 x 35-foot mural in place on Monday, drawing plenty of curious looks as he installed it in sections. He returned Tuesday to touch up a few spots and make sure everything was in place. After over it with a clear, protective coating. He estimates that he put over 180 hours of work into the mural. He got plenty of reaction as he worked early this week, with motorists honking their horns and giving him the thumbs up as they drove by. The centerpiece of the mural is from an old colorized postcard, Vickery explained. Main Street members helped select a series of landmark buildings to be included in the mural. We went though all the old pictures we had and I picked out the ones I thought the design, he said. Vickery, along with the Main Street members, went through three or layout. Main Street President Edwin Strawn said that after the group approved the design, he and his wife, Lynn as owners of the business the mural would be displayed on had a request. They asked that the image of the 1952 Dodge truck that Strawns father once drove, loaded with the boats he had built, be included. It was. As business owners, we hope it will attract people and make them want to stop, said Strawn. He believes the murals will show those passing through the area that the people of Blountstown remember and treasure their heritage. He hopes the artwork will spark some interest and encourage visitors to take their time and perhaps stop, eat at one of the local restaurants and do a little shopping. Vickery recently did a mural for the Calhoun County Elections Office after a private citizen donated the funds for the project. The patriotic design features the Honor of a Veteran theme. The next mural will be for a new restaurant set to open west of Blountstown in the former J&N Building. When funding is found and a location is secured, Vickery will begin working on his next project for Main Street, according to Strawn.Mural depicts long-gone buildings and historic views of Blountstown BETH EUBANKS PHOTO

A renewed sense of urgency? The only people that dont think its urweek vacation. JAY LENOA new report shows that due to the weak econo my right now, more Americans are canceling their cable television. Good luck trying to live without eight shows about cakes. CONAN OBRIENThe Republican Party is making automated robocalls to voters, blaming Democrats for the credit downgrade. Yeah, I thought I got a robocall from Mitt Romney. Turns out it was actually Mitt Romney. JIMMY F ALLONS&P downgraded the United States from AAA to AA+, and it gets worse. Today, Italy, England, and Greece un-friended us on Facebook. JAY LENOA new study shows that Americans with Type 2 diabetes can completely reverse the disease by eating healthy foods. In other words, no cure for Type 2 diabetes. CONAN OBRIENIt has been a crazy week for stocks. First down, then up, then down, and today they are up again. Its like trying to follow Gary Busey when hes off his meds. JAY LENOThe FCC says you will soon be able to send text messages to 911. Im sure 911 operators cant wait to get texts that say, Being carjacked, LOL. CONAN OBRIENThe Dow fell 634 points and went below the 11,000 mark. All I can say is: Its a good thing all my money is tied up in Beanie Babies. JIMMY F ALLONThey say the price of gas could soon be under $3 a gallon. Do you know what that means? You can now afford to drive by the house you used to live in, go by the job you used to have, and go see the bank where you used to have money. JAY LENOAretha Franklin got out of a parking ticket in New York by singing to a meter maid. In a related story, Michael Bolton tried the same thing and hes now serving life. CONAN OBRIENThe new specialty at the Iowa fair this year is fried butter on a stick. Of course, if youre like me and you want like to eat healthy, get your stick of butter baked. JAY LENONew reports say that President Obamas reelection team is going to try to portray Mitt Romney as weird. Theyre also going to try to portray Michele Bachmann as Michele Bachmann. CONAN OBRIENGreat day today! Obama didnt speak. Congress didnt act. Experts on vacation. And the Dow soared 400 points. Theres a lesson in there. JAY LENOChina has told us our days of squandering borrowed money are over. So maybe we shouldnt tell them we just spent $76 million going to the Smurf movie. CONAN OBRIENThe economys so bad Angelina Jolie is now adopting kids from America. My Facebook friends are now eating their Farmville animals. Piers Morgan can only afford to hack into the voicemail of Ringo. CONAN OBRIEN DES MOINES Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, the acknowledged if not electrifying Republican 2012 frontrunner, wasnt chowing down during his brief visit to the Iowa State Fair. Showing how he has maintained his 30inch waist well into middle age, Romney passed on the local favorites, which include and I kid you not deep-fried Milky Ways on a stick, chocolate-covered cheesecake on a stick and even fried butter on a stick. If youre interested, you reportedly can make your own fried butter on a stick at home by dipping an eighth of a pound of butter into a thick batter loaded with cinnamon and honey. With the coating thoroughly applied, three minutes in the deep fryer and you have a taste treat that, I have been assured, surpasses the sweetest sweet roll ever. This place has a menu that: a) could give healthy-eating First Lady Michelle Obama nightmares, and b) has been called by Iowans a heart attack on a stick. Perhaps Romney held off on the deep-fried delights because for the GOP candidates debate at Iowa State University in Ames later that evening. There, an imaginative question was posed by Washington Examiner columnist Byron York, who asked which of the eight presidential candidates on the stage deal that consisted of a 10-toone ratio of spending cuts to tax increases. Recognized budget-cutting hawks have agreed that $3 in cuts for every $1 in revenue increases would work as a politi severe is the anti-tax fever in the Republican body politic that every one of the Ames Eight took the public pledge, much to the glee of tax abolitionist Grover Norquist, not even to close the most indefensible of tax loopholes in order to raise a dime of revenues and guarantee a dollar of spending cuts. One debate featured Newt Gingrich scolding Fox News host Chris Wallace for daring to ask the former speaker about his campaign, which is seriously in debt and is losing leadership to resignations left and right. Following that, former Utah governor Jon Huntsman defended his time as U.S. ambassador to China under President Obama (Let me say Im proud of my service to this country. If you love your country, you serve her), and former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty proclaimed that current Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmans record of results in Congress is nonexistent. (Her rebuttal: I sponsored the light-bulb freedom-of-choice bill.) Next thing we knew, the pressroom was invaded by the campaigns spindoctors, each of whom explained why his gal or guy so clearly won. Ed Goeas, Bachmans veter an pollster, offered this insight: She knows who she is and what she believes and why she believes it. Eric Fehrnstrom, Romneys manager, appeared to mean it when he said he felt good about his candidates closing with the line, This country is in economic crisis. We have unfortunately as leader a man who is out of his depth. Matt Whittaker, Pawlentys Iowa chair and a former U.S. attorney, thought that his candidate drew a strong contrast with Michele Bachman, which gave us some momentum for Saturday and the Iowa GOPs straw poll. John Weaver, Huntsmans strategist, asked, Who (of the eight candidates) could defeat Obama? Whos the most presidential? These guys just seek to make the job of a reporter a little easier. This is August in Iowa, where the people are genuinely warm and welcoming and where the State Fair is a distinctly American event.

Dr. Sue Summers was named as the 2011 Hollingsworth given this award. Summers said she was surprised to win especially given the very high quality of the board members. Summers also thanked the board members for helping her better understand what students need to succeed in a very competitive job market. At the meeting members also heard two success stories from individuals that used the services provided at the One-Stop Career Center. Tyler Johnson went from being a troubled youth to full employment by taking the lessons he learned while participating in the boards youth program operated by the Washington County School Board. His career manager, Tamara Hampton, said Johnson showed a determination to improve his situation and continues to seek ways to improve himself. Career Manager Lisa Hayes introduced Tamra Robinson as the second success story of the night. Hayes called Robinson an inspiration and commended Robinson on her hard work and dedication. Robinson was employed by West Point Home when the company announced they were downsizing their workforce. Robinson took advantage of the Trade Adjustment Act program offered through the Chipley One-Stop Center to go back to school. Robinson told those in attendance that after the initial shock wore off she realized this was an opportunity to reinvent herself. She decided to become a nurse and attend WashingtonHolmes Technical Center in Chipley. Robinson not only managed to balance her family responsibilities and classwork, but also took on the job of class president of her nursing class. Robinson is currently employed as a LPN at an assisted living facility and used both the Trade Adjustment Act and Workforce Investment Act to assist her in her career change. Board Chair Darrin Wall of Chipley presented each told those present that the stories told by Johnson and Robinson were the real reason why members volunteer to be on their local workforce board. We certainly dont do this for fame and fortune, Wall said. We do this to help individuals and employers in our community and to hopefully make things better for Wall also presented Bud Riviere with the Chairs Award which is given by the boards chair to recognize members for special service and dedication to the board.

The announcement means Gadsden, Hardee, Osceola and Suwannee counties are in the running to host the landmark $1.5 billion renewable energy project. We have been impressed by all of the communities we have considered. After careful consideration, weve determined the Sunshine State will provide the most said National Solar Power CEO James Scrivener. Our friends in Georgia and North Carolina were deeply interested in this project. The communities we have visited and considered in those states remain viable options for our companys growth plans in the future. In June, the company announced seven communities (including the Florida counties along with Sumter and Tatnall counties in Georgia and Guilford County in North Carolina) were in the running to become home of the worlds largest solar farm. The company established a set of criteria in selecting its community partner for the solar farm location including: adequate supply of undeveloped land that can properly meet infrastructure needs related to the establishment of the solar facility; government and community support; development and tax incentives; and All of the communities we have considered would make excellent homes for the kind of solar project we will establish, Scrivener added. The communities in North Carolina and Georgia are great places with excellent opportunities for success. Thats why we will keep our talks with them ongoing as we consider the future growth of our company and this exciting solar industry. The first phase of the project is expected to be up and running within six months of breaking ground. Hensel Phelps Construction Co., a world leader in construction that rebuilt the Pentagon after the 9-11 attacks in 2001, will design, build and operate the solar farms for National Solar Power. By converting the natural power of the sun into electricity, National Solar Powers planned 400-megawatt farm will be capable of providing enough renewable energy to power roughly 32,000 homes.National Solar Power was established to meet the growing demand in the utility market for renewable energy generation by providing utilities with cost-effective solar solutions. The company has entered into power supply agreements for more than 3,000 megawatts of solar farms in the Southeastern United States. With these agreements, the company is well positioned to be a market leader in utility-scale solar production. A market leader in utility scale solar power solutions, National Solar Power is uniquely positioned within the marketplace to offer cost effective solar power solutions on the utility scale. With more than 30 years of industry experience, National Solar Powers founders have been involved in the solar and utility energy marketplace and witnessed renewable energy gaining in popularity and affordability.

AUGUST 17, 2011 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 11 ASK THEO L D F A R M E R SA L M A N A C Heating & Air Conditioning FL LIC. # CMC1249570 (850) 674-4777Whaley WhaleyIs there a cure for hiccups that actually works? F. C., Bozeman, Mont. To the best of our knowledge, there is not one (short of fatal ity) that works for everyone, although there are many that work for some. The old standards generally included water. Splashing cold water in the face of a victim with hiccups (also written as hickhops, hiccoughs, or hickets) goes back at least as far as the 16th century. For more drastic measures, the entire head would be immersed in water while the sufferer counted to 25. Other cures include these: stand on your head for 5 minutes; hold your left elbow for 7 minutes; jump over a broom seven times; pant like a dog, then bite your thumbs and blow hard against them for a minute; eat a spoonful of sugar; hold your breath; breathe into a paper bag; hold the as close together as you can without letting them touch; and put the head of a burnt match in your ear. Or, as one old-timer maintains, run around a church three times without thinking about a fox. Can I grow water melons in western Illinois next year? S. L., Galesburg, Ill.Watermelons are not frost hardy and require a long growing season with relatively high tempera tures. Daytime tempera tures between 70 and 80 degrees F and nighttime temperatures between 65 and 70 degrees F are ideal. Watermelons grow well in both humid and semiarid areas, but you a problem if you have a humid summer. You might consider using black plastic mulch to conserve moisture, suppress weed growth, and warm the soil. Plants or seeds should be spaced two to a hill, 3 to 4 feet apart, on the strips of plastic placed on 5-foot centers. Start your seeds in peat pots or pellets about 4 weeks before the anticipated planting time. Watermelons also may be direct-seeded through holes cut in the plastic, but this may delay the harvest.Can I use freshly picked sage, or does it B. B., Hadley, Mass. Fresh sage (Salvia ofriety of culinary uses, but it doesnt taste the same as dried sage. In either case, harvest only young leaves; older, larger ones will have toughened and It should be harvested in spring after an early, vigorous pruning of the plant. (For dried sage, its best to harvest the leaves just after the plant has through the season until early fall. By September or so, stop harvesting and allow the plant to toughen before winter. Although fresh leaves are too coarse and furry to eat whole, you can stuff sprigs in the cavity of poultry before roasting, or use them as an attractive garnish. To get the sage, however, the young leaves should be well chopped or minced. This will bring out the pleasant, aromatic, sometimes lemony taste. If you dry the leaves, they take on a heavier, pinelike taste, similar to rosemary. You can use fresh or dried sage breads, or casseroles; its just a matter of personal taste. Traditionalists may prefer dried sage with Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday meals, but try fresh sage in a cassoulet, with pork chops, or in light pasta dishes such as a lemony linguini with shrimp.Salvia officinalis is also the sage used in old home remedies for everything from gingivitis (bad breath) to body odor and baldness. Herbalists recommend medicinal teas made with sage for canker sores, tonsillitis, and asth ma. Native Americans used a sage poultice on the chest for asthma, plus sage tea for 40 days. For a sore throat, a warm gargle made with an infusion of sage leaves can be very comforting. In addition, scientists are researching how effective sages antiare for treating carpal tunnel syndrome.

Page 16 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL AUGUST 17, 2011 GARDENINGThe sweltering heat of August makes it a tough month for gardening in Florida. Many people will be tempted to stay indoors and avoid the heat; however, gardeners know that there is still plenty to do in the garden and landscape. August can be a very active month in the vegetable garden. Many of our warm season vegetables can be planted in August including green beans, lima beans, cucumbers, south ern peas, peppers, pumpkin, summer squash, winter squash and tomatoes. Be aware, however, that the late planted summer, or warm season vegetables are more prone to insect and disease problems than the same crops planted in the spring. Its also a great time to plan your fall vegetable garden. Many cool season vegetables can be planted in September. So now is the time to prepare the soil. For a vegetable garden, select a well-drained site with at least six hours of direct sunlight. Have a pH test done if you have not done one within the last year. A pH test will tell you if lime is needed. Dont add lime without knowing what your pH is currently--too much lime is as bad as not enough. Be sure to add a generous amount of organic material such as compost, animal to add too much organic matter to our sandy soils since the climate favors the rapid decomposition of organic matter. Allow at least three weeks between the incorporation of amendments and planting. August is prime time for lawn problems. Be on the lookout for spittlebugs in centipede grass and chinch bugs in St. Augustine grass lawns. A few of these insects is usually not a problem. However, if you see noticeable damage to your lawn, contact your local Extension Various lawn diseases are also present at this time of year. Frequent summer showers, high humidity and warm temperatures provide ideal conditions for the develop ment of fungal diseases such as gray leaf spot and take all root rot. Avoid contributing to a favorable disease environment by watering too often. Consider adjusting your mowing height up a notch or two during the summer. The more top growth the plant has the more leaf area it has to har vest sunlight and ultimately grow roots. Take the time to scout your trees and shrubs for problems. Look for the azalea defoliator caterpillar on azaleas. These are large black caterpillars that can strip the foliage very quickly. Pick them off by hand or remove the twig they are on. Some of our flowering plants may need a little pick-me up. Annuals need deadheading and the perennials may need a haircut. Many straggly plants can be cut back and fertilized to encourage re-blooming in the fall. Some of these inimpatiens, marigolds, salvia and zinnias. Limit the addition of new plants to those that are the most heat tolerant such as coleus, croton, lantana, melampodium, salvia and vinca. If weeds have taken over your landscape beds, you will need to eradicate them before they start setting seed. A day or two after a good rain, when the ground has absorbed the water and softened a little, get out and do some hand weeding. In addition to taking care of your plants, be sure to take care of yourself in this blistering heat. Slow down, drink plenty of water, dont get too much sun and try to do your garden chores in the coolest part of the day. by Theresa Friday, Horticulture Extension Agent, Santa Rosa County Located in BristolLAND CLEARING-Private drives and roads -Food plots -Home sites -Small acreageCall E ddie Nobles at (850) 643-5390 or (850) 447-0449 or Chas (850) 447-0849Eddie NoblesLAND CLEARING, EXCA V A TION AND ROOT RAKING FOR: The more tools you choose, the more you save!

The FWC tested 910 free-ranging deer during the past year and 5,519 deer during the past nine years, with no CWD-positive results. We are fortunate that no Florida deer has tested positive for CWD. The effect this disease has had in other states is substantial, Cory Morea, FWCs deer coordinator and biologist, said. We would like to obtain more samples of deer from areas adjacent to captive deer facilities, because the most likely way for CWD to be introduced into Florida is through the importation of deer from other states. CWD is a contagious neurological disease that has been found in captive and wild mule deer, white-tailed deer, moose and Rocky Mountain elk within several Western states and more recently Eastern states. The disease causes degeneration of the brain of infected animals, resulting in emaciation, abnormal behavior, loss of bodily functions and death. Virginia and West Virginia are the only southeastern states where CWD has been detected. To reduce the chances of CWD entering Florida, the state prohibits importing live deer unless they come Additionally, importation of any species of deer, elk or moose car casses, with the exception of cleaned skull caps, antlers, tanned hides and deboned meat, is prohibited from 19 states and two Canadian provinces where CWD has been detected. Chronic wasting disease has been detected in New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Illinois, New York, West Virginia, Michigan, Virginia, Missouri, North Dakota and Maryland, and Alberta and Saskatchewan, Canada. Visit the CWD Alliance website at www. cwd-info.org for the most up-to-date CWD reporting. Early detection is the key to limit ing the spread of the disease, if such an outbreak should occur in Florida, Morea said. The FWC is once again turning to hunters and members of the public this hunting season for assistance in helping monitor the states deer herd for CWD. Were asking hunters to report any sightings of sick or emaciated deer, or deer found dead from unknown causes, Morea said. If you see such a deer, do not touch it, but instead contact us as soon as possible by call ing toll-free, 866-CWDWATCH (293-9282). Wildlife biologists will respond and, if necessary, collect deer tissue for testing. CWD WATCH is part of an aggressive monitoring program intended to detect CWD in Florida and minimize its impact, should it be found. There is no evidence that CWD poses a risk for humans. However, recommend avoiding direct contact with any sick-looking deer or one that has died from unknown causes. FWC reports no evidence of chronic wasting disease has been found in Floridas white-tail deer populationEarly detection is the key to limiting the spread of the disease, if such an outbreak should occur in Florida.Thinking about a Check the Apalachicola River, Chipola River and the Ochlockonee RIVER READINGS CLJNews.com HOURS Monday Saturday 9 a.m. 9 p.m. Sunday 11 a.m. 6 p.m. 2816 Hwy. 98 West $575 Down.......................2002 Ford Taurus$675 Down..........2002 Chevy Blazer, 4-door$975 Down................2001 Ford F150, X/cab$875 Down....................2002 Chevy Impala$2,000 Down...........2002 Chevy Avalanche$1,900 Down.....2002 Chevy Silverado X/cab AUTO FINANCINGDAYLIGHT

But if youre between the ages of 16 and 36, and havent yet taken the states hunter safety class nows just the time to be thinking about it. Many during hunting season while people scramble class sizes and offer a better opportunity for students to attend, because they often have more free time then. People 16 years old or older and born after May 31, 1975, must complete the FWCs hunter safety requirement before they can buy a Florida hunting license. There is an exception though. A law passed a few years ago that allows individuals to hunt under the supervision of a licensed hunter, 21 years old or older, without having to complete Its called the Hunter Safety Deferral License, and it allows those people who pur chase one to hunt on a one-year trial basis. Its designed to encourage experienced hunters to teach novice hunters about our sport and is a great incentive for getting more people to give hunting a try. Individuals taking advantage of this would have to pass a hunter safety class to be eligible to buy a license and hunt the following year. If youre a youngster and already hunt, I suggest you go ahead and take a hunter safety class before you turn 16. Of course, until then, you may hunt under adult supervision.
