Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL AUGUST 24, 2011 Antigovernment populism an art formAttacking, hating and deriding the U.S. government for any and every perceived injustice to its American citizens have become an art form in American society in general and specians, trashing the government in which they serve or wish to serve has become a vocation and for rightwing conservatives, its almost like a religious calling. The question is can America survive this political struggle for ideological supremacy between conservatives and everyone else? Probably not. Ive watched and listened to the Republican presidential candidates stump speeches and debates. Their message is that the federal government and President Obama are Public Enemies Number One. Their presidential message is, if America is to survive, then President Obama and liberals have to be sent to never-never land and the federal government has to be reduced to letterhead status with a small ofWashington DC. Then the American people are free to do whatever they want whenever they want without regard to that old government meddling in their affairs. Governor of Texas Rick Perry, knight in shining ar mor, rides on the political stage on a white steed with six-guns blazing vowing to kill off Public Enemy Numone who can speak the language of the extreme right wing. That PPaw guy from Wisconsin was a wuss and Michelle Bachman talks a good right-wing game, but after all, she is a girl wearing high heels and a skirt. The great White Hope for conservatives, Rick Perry, wearing a 10-gallon hat, boots and a Texas-sized belt buckle with the inscription, Texas will secede from the Union whenever it damn well pleases, in now on center stage in American politics. Perry isnt alone in his desire to get ugly with the federal government. The dozen or so Republican candidates for the presidency have a battle plan to neuter Washington DC and the federal government. resentative from Texas and staunch Libertarian, on CSPAN speak to a standing room only crowd of about 500 people in Orlando. The theme of his stump speech is, as always, disband the federal government and free the people. Americas Central Bank, should be abolished and the use of paper money discontinued. You know, those pieces of paper people carry in their wallets and purses with the numbers 1, 5, 10, 20 and 100 on them. Ron Paul says they are worthless, and the only real currency is gold and silver. Why, according to Paul, because the Constitution says so. Of course, the Libertarian crowded whooped and cheered at the suggestion that we all deal in gold and silver coins, but apparently not aware that paper money CORNERJerry Cox is a retired military OXS has been around for eons. During the decade of the Article of Confederation era prior to the writing of the Constitution, all 13 states printed their own paper money. Recognizing this, a requirement for a common currency and a U.S. Treasury was one of the main reasons forming a central government based on a Constitution common to all. All societies have commonly accepted rules that govern their collective behavior. Even the most primitive of societies have rules. You cant do your busiother. Yikes, thats socialism. Yep, but even the most effort, a fact that escapes most Americans. Ron Pauls basic message is that Americans should be free. I agree, but I dont think that our societal rules deprive anyone of their basic freedoms. You might want to shoot your neighbor, but society says thats a not kill thy neighbor into a law. The Rule of Law is essential to the greatness of a society. Without a Rule of Law and the Courts, America would be just another lawless country, like Somalia. Ron Paul, like most people, particularly conservatives, is opposed to the federal governments redistribution of wealth. He doesnt want to pay taxes which are then used for entitlement programs. Redistribution of wealth is occurring in a dramatic way, but the redistribution is upward. The rich have increased their wealth ten-fold to the wages of the workers of America. Wages have been stagnant for years, but the rich have gotten richer. There are numerous sources for this data. Check it out. There are numerous factors underlying Americas unrest. Resentment of paying taxes that are used for the less fortunate in America; the Christian fundamentalists desire to meld religion and politics; for many, the desire to have a national preacher as president, and the belief that the federal government is the evil empire. Some quotes on taxes and religion:Taxes are the price we pay for a civilized society. -Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., US Supreme Court Justice (1841-1935)The tax, which will be paid for the purpose of education, is not more than the thousandth part of what will be paid to kings, priests, and nobles who will rise up among us if we leave the people in ignorance. -Thomas Jefferson, third US president, architect and author (1743-1826)One of the great tragedies of mankind is that morality has been hijacked by religion.

AUGUST 24, 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 WhaleyMy grandmother, who was a great seamstress, would never sew on Friday. Any idea why? G. B., Aiken, S.C. Well, maybe she had just had enough by that point in the week. But more likely, she was privy to the superstitions about sewing that pervaded an older generation, including the saying that claimed that you should never start a sewing project on a Friday. Some seamstresses believed that it was okay to begin on Friday only ish the project the same day. We call these sewing superstitions the Just Sew stories, just so you know. Others include: Never button a new shirt before it is worn. Similar to this was the belief that new clothes should never be worn until they had been washed once. A broken sewing needle means that you wont live to wear the garment out, but if the garment is for someone else, theres no ill omen. Sewing after sunset means a life of poverty, however. And the quilting superstitions are numerous enough to write a book on, probably because of those infamous quilting bees, with so much talk. Never turn a quilt once it is on the frame. Never patch an old quilt with a new patch -darn or mend it instead. So, now you know.Is it possible for grass to get too much water? J. N., Whippany, N.J. Yes, overwatering or too much rain can cause problems. Too much water will leach nutrients, especially nitrogen, from the soil, leaving the grass discolored. Nitrogen-starved grass also is more susceptible to certain diseases. Ideally, grass should receive 1 to 1-1/2 inches of water per week to grow well. Water should be applied to the lawn in as few applications as possible. Delivering 1 inch of water at once will allow it to penetrate deeper into the soil and encourage healthy roots. Many short soakings will not seep into the soil, and the roots will remain close to the surface, making the grass much more susceptible to drought and thatch buildup. When working with sandy or compacted clay soils, several water applications may be necessary. In sandy soils, the water will percolate through quickly and will not be available to the roots after a few days. In compacted clay soils, the water will not penetrate fast enough and will tend to run off the surface.My tomatoes this year had deep brown indentations on their tops, as well as some large and some very small yellow spots. What went wrong? G. L., Altoona, Pa.The brown spots are most likely caused by a fungus called Alternaria. Next year, look for plants that are resistant to this fungus. If you spray your tomatoes, use a spray without lime (ask your local garden center where to obtain these). You also might be applying too much manure or overwatering your plants. The yellow blotches are probably Tomato Spotted Wilt, a virus that affects the leaves of the plants as well and control. The only way to get rid of this is to remove the diseased plants.

All is not gold that glitters. Compost should be watered during dry periods so that it remains active. Prune only to retain the shape. Do not prune such as azaleas and rhododendrons. Mid-August through September is a good time to transplant any shrubs that youve purchased with root balls wrapped in burlap. Make sure you get them in the ground two to three days after purchase. Do not fertilize until the second year, when the feeding roots have become established. Lawns or bare spots reseeded with grass now will have a chance to get established before winter sets in. Water often and mulch with hay. In colder regions, houseplants that have been outside for the summer should be brought in at the end of this month. A sudden cold spell will be too much of a shock for them to survive. This is also a good time to take cuttings.You can still enjoy gar these annuals inside: sweet alyssum, dwarf marigold, browallia, ageratum, and nasturtium.

Invasive pests and diseases can impact our communities and the natural landscape, jeopardize the livelihood of our farmers, ranchers and foresters, and alter our ecosystems. Invasive species can cause harm to the economy, the environment and human health. From Americans returning from foreign travel, to arriving cargo on ships, there is always the potential for dangerous plant pests and microorganisms to enter the country. Many of these pests and diseases have already seriously harmed U.S. industry and urban and rural landscapes. Some scientists estimate that the economic impact from invasive species exceed $1 billion annually in the United States, in addition to the damage they cause to hundreds of millions of acres of native ecosystems.Invasive pests grow and spread rapidly. They disrupt the areas they invade by pushing out native species, reducing biological diversity, killing forest trees, placing other species at increased risk and frequency, damaging crops, closing foreign markets to U.S. products from infested areas and costing industry and governments millions of dollars in treatments and other response and control efforts. If you are a hiker, biker, camper, bird watcher, gardener, hunter, fisherman, boater, rancher, or farmer, these invaders could ruin your favorite outdoor activity or your livelihood. The simplest and most important thing species is to prevent their introduction and establishment. Invasive organisms can easily be transported on living plants or fresh products such as fruit. Many pests can be found in recently killed plant wood packaging material. Avoiding the long-range movement of these materials is a simple way to slow the spread of pests. stock is also a good idea.

Box 563, Quincy 32353 T ALLAHASSEE As the new school year begins, students and parents lives can be simpler and their efforts more successful by using their local libraries. Florida public libraries provide electronic resources, books, and assistance that can help students succeed in their school work. The Division of Library and Information Services of the Florida Department of State partners with local libraries and provides a comprehensive foundation of resources called the Florida Electronic Library (FEL) that is available to all Floridians. These libraries and the FEL support K-12 students and schools on evenings, weekends, and holidays, and complement services provided by school media specialists. their summer schedules with back-to-school programs, this is a good time for students and parents to make a mental note of the ways public libraries can help them during the year ahead. It is also a good idea to check your local library for a schedule of events and programs. Computers and Internet Access Public libraries offer computers with Internet connections, word processing software, printers and assistance in using them. Most libraries tablet, or eReader with you! Readers Advisory Libraries are still in to match their needs and interests. When for that report librarians are ready to help. And they have copies of The Sunshine State Reading list and other lists teachers use to guide students reading development. Help with Research for Reports and Assignments Research can be an intimidating undertaking for students regardless of their grade level. Librarians help young students identify resources appropriate for their grade and help them get comfortable using them. Online Resources Most libraries provide licensed material from their websites that teachers require and that is not freely available on the Internet. Teachers generally require students to use reliable published sources, reference material, and magazine and journal articles, and local libraries pay license fees in order to provide them. This is important for students and parents to keep in mind when deciding which information to use on the librarys website under electronic resources or homework help. Florida Electronic Library The FEL, a service of the Division of Library and Infor mation Services of the Florida Department of State, provides a comprehensive collection of information on a wide range of topics for Floridians of all ages, including resources selected especially for K-12 students. The intent is that the peer-reviewed material covers all areas of knowledge and at reading levels that make it accessible for all. A few of the resources can be categorized as: Florida History, General Reference, Health, Newspapers, Magazine and journal articles, Photos, Paintings and Art, Basic ebooks and Business and Jobs/Careers Resources. Ask a This statewide ser vice assists all Floridians, including students, with homework questions and research projects. There are 117 Florida libraries, including public, college, and university libraries, that collaborate to provide Floridians with free online reference service from 10 a.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday (EST) and until 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Start with the Ask a Librarian link from your local librarys web site because for some libraries that connects you directly to their reference staff. You can also go directly to the Ask a Librarian page. Using either approach you will be able to chat or text with a librarian. The librarian will direct you to the information you need and can even take you to the information on your librarys website. Free Ebooks Many libraries license popular e-books, including books for young readers, that customers can check out or download from the librarys websites to their eReaders or computers. Some libraries participate in programs like the Open Library that make additional free ebooks available to library cardholders. This is another service that you can use without having to go to the library. The ebook market is still getting sorted out and can be frustrating, but fortunately library with your ebook reader. Check Out Your Community Library for Additional Services Services provided for students and parents by Florida libraries vary from community to community and some offerings are quite extensive. Some provide formal home work help and tutoring programs in the library, some provide these services over the web, and some do both. These are exciting times as K-12 students indeed all Floridians are challenged to master the 21st Century learning and infor mation skills necessary for success in todays world. Florida public libraries are prepared and ready to make K-12 students and parents lives easier and help students succeed! for more information.Libraries make families lives easier and help students succeed

AUGUST 24, 2011 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 19 The Liberty County 4-H club held an Environmental Ed day camp on Aug. 2. David Cook from the Fish and Wildlife Conser tion with the kids about some of his creatures. He brought spiders and snakes, frogs, turtles and an alligator. This was a great hands-on experience for these youth, especially those who had never been up close and personal with an alligator! They learned the difference between Amphibians and Salamanders. Ben Knowles, 4-H Agent from the Jackson County Extension look at insects under a microscope and he shared information about the most abundant and vital molecule on earth and its importance to all of us: water. Our second day Aug. 3, was spent at Wakulla Springs with a river boat cruise to see more of wonderful Florida wildlife includ ing the Florida manatee. After the river boat ride, the kids took a cold swim in the springs, had lunch, ice cream before we found our way back to good ole Liberty County. Our last day of camp for the summer was Silly Science on Aug. 9 & 10. On Tuesday, the kids participated in several hands-on science experiments with Cathia Schmarje. The learned about rainbows and lights by doing colorful experiments with milk and food coloring. They learned about Eating Nails for Breakfast through magnetic science by taking Total cereal and drawing the iron particles out with magnets. They found The secret in a baby diaper and they made fake snow. On Wednesday see where they learned more about how light works. The kids toured through the lab and learned about the worlds strongest magnet and its uses. We would like to thank the following people and business es for making this years day camp fun, educational, and the Department, who talked with the kids about respect and trust for each other and of Fish Talks Bait and Tackle donated crickets for both our for letting us use our kayaks at her lake property. We also appreciate the staffs at and Wakulla Springs, as netic Lab and our tour guide Carlos.

Adam Terry found the girl with Bowman in an abandoned camper trailer at the end of 12th Street. Weve had dealings with him previously and knew where he might be, Terry said. After Terry knocked on the door, Bowman opened it. The young girl was laying on the couch. When I found them, I got him out of the trailer and put her in my patrol car, Terry said. Bowman became highly irritated and was yelling at me that he had not done anything, according to Terrys report. Bowman was then moved into Terrys car and the girl was moved to another patrol car. Bowman, still angry, began screaming and banging his head against the cage in the back of Terrys vehicle. Terry held him down in the seat until he became calmer. Bowman then told Partridge that there was meth and a pipe inside the trailer. During a search of the trailer, Investigator Timmy Partridge found a plastic container that held some meth, a glass pipe and a marijuana bud in a piece of napkin. Bowman was charged with possession of meth, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and child abuse. He is being held on $33,000 bond. Holder was charged with child neglect and given a conditional release.MISSING TEENcontinued from the front page Mayor Wes Johnston. Opponents of keeping the police department say the $60,000 cost per year is too much and want the funds to go toward building a sewer for a new school. When funding was brought up Tuesday night, Mayor Wes Johnston asked the citizens gathered, Are you in favor of giving up security for a septic tank? He got a resounding no from most of those in the audience. After the meeting, the mayor took issue with comments that the town was broke. Following a recent visit by auditors, Johnston pointed out, They said we could function for six months even if no revenue came in. group they would lose a lot if the department was shut down and county deputies had to cover the area. I just want yall to know what I do, I do for this town. I put this badge on with integrity, he said. He said, Its time to quit fussing over it. Lets just work together.AL THA TOWN COUNCILcontinued from the front page partment. ANGIE DAVIS PHOTOS Miss a recent news article?Catch up online at
