Steve Southerland, II hosted a press conference at Marianna City Hall Monday to announce new legislation for assisting rural communities with obtaining critical techni ning when undertaking infra structure enhancements, all at no additional cost to taxpayers. Southerlands bill, the Building Rural Communities Act, im proves access to existing funds under the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)s rural development loan program for small communities looking to build or modernize police and munity health clinics and other public services. Rural municipalities, coun try towns, and small farming communities form the back bone of North and Northwest Florida, Southerland said. Unfortunately, across Amer ica many of these bedrock communities are fading away because they cant match the access to infrastructure and ser vices that larger cities provide. Our legislation will make it easier for rural communities to thrive by providing the techni cal assistance and project plan ning they need to strengthen public safety, public health, and public access to upgraded services all at no additional cost to taxpayers. We appreciate Rep. South erlands commitment to im proving access to public safety, health, and community en hancement services for Flor idas rural communities, said Gary Williams, Executive Director of the Florida Ru ral Water Association. His leadership on this issue will be critically important as we work together to build a bright future for small cities and rural areas across our state. "Technical assistance pro viders like RCAP have worked with USDA-RD's water and wastewater program for de cades to make it one of the the federal government, said Robert Stewart, Executive Di rector of the Rural Community Assistance Partnership. Rep. Southerlands Building Rural Communities Act builds on that success by expanding the assis tance that is available to rural communities to address the infrastructure, public safety, and other essential community facilities needs that support growth and economic develop ment in rural areas." USDA Rural Develop ments Community Facilities Program is an important low counties and their partners, said Matt Chase, Executive Director of the National Asso ciation of Counties. Our na tions rural counties appreciate Rep. Southerlands leadership on rural development efforts and support the Building Rural Communities Act, which will assist local effort to build es sential community facilities that enhance economic op portunities and quality of life. Southerlands bill, which is co-sponsored by Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-NC), sets aside 3-5% of funding in the USDAs Rural Development Essential Communities Facilities pro gram for technical assistance. Similar assistance has al ready been utilized to build or upgrade water and wastewater projects in Marianna, Blount stown, Rosedale, and Taylor County. The Building Rural Communities Act improves access to existing funds under the USDAs rural development loan program for small communities looking to build or modernize nity health clinics and other public services. Journal Editor The homeowner said he was trying to scare away predatory birds from going after his small pets but a neighbor saw something else in the sheet that Scott Holcomb hung outside his front door on CR 333 Saturday. The Liberty County Sheriffs Office received two complaints about the display, which featured what appeared to be a black face with red paint depicting blood on a sheet that was wrapped around a basketball, according to the callers. A rope was tied under the ball, which was then looped around a tree, making it hang facing the home of Mackinzie Ross. Ross, who is black, calls the display by his white neighbor a racist hate crime. Ross said the object was made to represent a black man and appeared to be deliberately placed so that it would face his property. Holcomb removed the display after a deputy came to his home but, with his neighbor in earshot, loudly stated, I will put it back up in a few months for Halloween. According to Ross, He said it was his yard and he could hang up what he wanted. Ross said he felt something more should be done, explaining, My wife and I have three small children that live here. Im afraid to allow our children to play outside because we dont know what might be out in his yard. I always hang up stuff in the yard to run off hoot owls, eagles and hawks, Holcomb said. They just took it wrong, I guess. There was no face on it, he said, I just spotted it with black and red paint. He said hes never had any problems with his neighbors and was not targeting them. It had nothing to do with a black person, Holcomb said. Neighbors disturbed by display at CR 333 home

what future politicians would to do to the Ameri can Republic and our representative form of govern ment James Madison and the framers of the Consti tution would have written a Constitution with more backbone, more gristle and grit. From my reading of history books, I think that Madison assumed that future politicians would have the honesty, integrity and acceptance of responsi bility displayed by the Founders. But the Seven Deadly Sins trumps honesty, integrity and responsibility. Avarice, greed and desire for power permeate political parties. But, I think that Federalists like Madison may have seen the future of the Republic through rose-colored glasses. They should have known better, particularly after the dis senting dialogue put forth by the Anti-Federalists such as John C. Calhoun. Republicans are the modern day Anti-Federalists. They still oppose a central govern ment, believing that States rights trump national sov ereignty. Today, the right-wing chant is for smaller government and no taxes. At both the federal and state government level, representative government is down the tubes. The current inane, moronic budget debate between Presi dent Obama and the Republicans is the classic case of government gone wild. The current performance of the U.S. Congress gives new meaning to ineptness. Republicans would end social programs. You know, those hated entitlement programs, Medicare, Med icaid, Social Security, food stamps, aid to schools. Cutting entitlements is the basic tenet of the cur rent Republican plan to balance the budget. In the budget madness, President Obama has agreed to the concept of chained CPI, which translated means that people on Social Security are going to get ripped. Republicans will be happy to trash senior citizens, but they wont ask the rich folks to pay more taxes. I pre dict that President Obama will give up the seniors and Republicans wont give an inch. President Obama should stop trying to compromise with Republicans who have no intention of compro mising and tell them to stuff it. Obama should use his bully pulpit and remind Americans that the problem is Republicans who refuse to do what is best for the American people. While Obama has the high moral ground in this budget charade, it isnt much high ground because like Republicans, Democrats are owned by corpo rate America. That spinning sound is the Founding Fathers spinning in their graves because politicians have corrupted the Founders concept of representa tive government. Thanks to the Tea Party, Republicans have gained control of the U.S. House and gerrymandering by Re publican-controlled state legislatures has almost guar anteed that Republicans will control the U.S. House until the 2020 census. Republicans control a number of state legislatures and governorships. Democrats and minorities in these Repub lican controlled states have and will continue to have their shorts ripped off. North Carolina has found an other method of suppressing the vote. The parents of college stu dents who vote at the college will have to pay a tax. It doesnt mat ter that state colleges are receiv ing tuition payments from these parents. Republicans cant win on the merits of their beliefs, so they suppress the vote. Cant let those young liberals vote. Suppressing the vote apparently isnt enough to satisfy the Republican desire to punish every sin ner. The Republican dominated legislature has de cided that North Carolina is a sovereign state exter nal to the sovereignty of the United States, and they will establish a state religion. Guess they havent read that First Amendment thing. Seems that this we are a sovereign state is the beginning of the Second Civil War. In the Civil War, cede from the Union on December 20, 1860. How did that work out? I believe secession was resolved at Ap pomattox in 1865. But Americans dont know much about that old history stuff; so, why not give this se cession stuff another go. Republican dominated state legislatures and gover norships have ratcheted up the war on women. Repub licans blather on about small government, but they are willing to post a government agent in every doctors womans healthcare and reproductive rights? The Republican attempt to control all aspects of a persons personal life, particularly women, reminds me of the religious police in Iran that punish women for perceived violations of the Koran. Flash an ankle and get forty lashes. The federal budget issue isnt complicated. There are many areas where federal spending can be re duced. Despite President Obamas the sky is fall ing, my view is that the sequestration cuts are not But we the people should decide what we are willing to pay for. Want a war? Then pay for it. Want Medicare and other social programs? Then pay for it. When the cost of our automobile or home insurance increases, we pay for it. We should do the same for Some combination of reduced spending and tax increases is the answer. Is that possible? Not in our representative government.

If the Founders had known While at a fundraiser, President Obama called Californias attorney general, Kamala Harris, the best-looking attorney general ever. after the comment, the Secret Service added extra Michelle. JAY LENO They give Jay $15 million NOT to host to The Tonight Show. They gave Conan $30 million NOT to host The Tonight Show. I have not host ed The Tonight Show longer than both of them put together. WHERE IS MY MONEY? DAVID LETTERMAN Good news: our buddy Wesley Snipes re member he went to prison in 2010 for tax eva sion he got released earlier this week. The JAY LENO President Obama raised some eyebrows when he called Californias Kamala Harris, quote, the best-looking attorney general in the country. Of course he said it was just a joke. Then Michelle was like, Well, heres another one: Whats black and white and sleeps on the couch? JIMMY FALLON Dunkin Donuts is testing a new food item. A glazed donut/egg sandwich. If it tests well, its gonna be used in prisons as a form of lethal in jection. JAY LENO We have a guy here in New York City who want ed to be mayor so hes trying to bribe his way on to the ballot, laying out big, big money. And the scandal involves three Republicans and two Democrats. Finally, some bipartisanship! DAVID LETTERMAN Tensions continue to mount in this North Korea situation. The U.S. has moved a Navy warship off the coast of the Korean Peninsula. Is that going to scare the North Koreans? If you really want to scare them, dont send a warship. Send a Carnival cruise ship. JAY LENO Delta announced that it is shrinking the size of its bathrooms to add four more seats on every plane. Cuz every time Im in a planes bathroom, three more people in here. JIMMY FALLON passengers by the pound. You stand on a scale, they weigh you, and you pay your fare based on that. In a related story, Governor Chris Christie JAY LENO Remember the movie Jurassic Park about the dinosaurs? Its coming back in 3-D. But you know what? Honestly, if I want to watch dinosaurs run around, Ill just go to a Yankees game. DAVID LETTERMAN Model Heidi Klum was in Hawaii and saved her 7-year-old son from drowning.

Brown, Clerk of Court Jim Johnson, Chairman March 14 special meeting minutes of the Liberty County Commission OUTDOORS BY STAN KIRKLAND The number of bear-related calls received by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) are on the rise in northwest Florida. In 2002, the FWC logged just 118 calls for the 16-county area stretching from Escambia County over to Jefferson County. In 2012, that number rocketed to almost 1,700 calls. Bears are driven by the urge to eat and it doesnt matter to them whether its garbage or other easy sources of food such as bird seed or pet food. The key to keeping bears in the wild and out of your yard is denying them easy access to food. In Wakulla County, which has experienced a rapid human growth and rise in bear complaints in the past several years, two things have transpired to reduce human-bear For one thing, garbage pick-up is now mandatory for all residents. Problems with garbage sitting for days in cans in outlying areas and becoming a target for hungry bears have been mostly resolved. Secondly, Waste Pro, the waste service company in the county, is now making modified and bear-resistant cans available to residents experiencing bear problems. Residents can extra fee, many residents are keeping their garbage secure in the wildlife-resistant cans. In nearby Franklin County, the developers of St. James Bay, a planned residential development that will eventually total almost 500 homes, require the use of bear-resistant cans. To the west, theres no better example of a proactive approach in reducing bear issues than on U.S. Air Force Bases Hurlburt Field in Okaloosa County. Several years ago, Hurlburt resistant garbage cans and dumpsters of all base personnel, and implemented an education program on the dos and donts when living near bears. They were able to document more than a 70 percent decline in calls and complaints about bears. Elsewhere in Okaloosa County, communities and governmental leaders are working with the FWC For example, the city of Fort Walton Beach has retrofitted old plastic-lid dumpsters with reinforced lids to keep bears from raiding them for food scraps. The city is also installing inexpensive gate-hasp hardware on existing garbage cans to keep bears from household garbage. The nearby city of Mary Esther, cans used by city residents. While there are other notable successes in dealing with bears, the key to drastically reducing the number of problems in the future is cooperation between county governmental leaders and waste service companies to make reasonable options available for residents to keep their garbage secure. Providing bear-resistant garbage cans to the public and a willingness by the public to use those cans are the most important components needed to Several years ago, required the use of bear-resistant garbage cans and dumpsters of all base personnel, and implemented an education program on the dos and donts when living near bears.

On Friday the FWC ramped up search efforts with the help of several partner agencies, including Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, Miami-Dade Police Department, Miccosukee Police Department and used several airboats as well as aerial support to help with the search.

Guys, if you ever want to feel completely stripped of your manhood, you can either start carrying a toy poodle around in a handbag or get a minivan. I never tried out the poodle idea, but I can vouch for effects of the minivan. In 1996, my wife Mary and I had three small kids and fate forced me to give up my four-wheel drive. I replaced it with a Ford Windstar, which was like having the word domesticated tattooed across my forehead. To be honest, Mary drove the van most of the time, but that just meant I had to drive our little red Toyota, which was almost as bad. It was a compact four-door car that got great gas mile age and ran well. It was incredibly practical, but it still looked like something a teenage girl would drive. Obviously, I need a change. So I traded the Toyota for a late-s model fullsize Ford Bronco that was jacked up to accommodate extra large mud-grip tires. The carpet was gone, the seats were ripped and there was mold grow ing in several places. Nearly everything inside was electric and almost none of it worked. Plus, it had an exhaust leak that made it sound like a machine gun when you revved the en gine. In short, it was perfect. Not surprisingly, Mary didnt share my fondness for the Bronco. I even explained that it had a bench seat in the front, so she could sit right next to me. All she said was, Good. Im sure your next wife will enjoy that. Im not riding in it. And she stuck to her guns for most of the time I had it. One Monday morning, however, I had to go out of town for business. It would have been cheaper to charter a jet than buy that much gas for the Bronco, so Mary decided she could handle driving the old blue beast for one day and let me take the van. I should pause here and add a couple of important details: First, I had gone hunting in Blountstown the day before my Monday trip. one around to help, dragged him up onto the tailgate of the Bronco and into the back. The second thing you should know is that the back window of the Bronco opened and closed electroni cally but only when it felt like it. And it didnt feel like it on the way back from Blountstown. The next day, when Mary left to drop the kids off at pre-school, she tried closing it to keep from smelling the to roll up. Big mistake. Remember the deer? Well, apparently a lot of its blood seeped in to the tailgate of the Bronco. When Mary hit the switch, the window emerged from its slot, cov ered in all the grossness left behind from the deer. She said it looked like something out of a horror movie. I can only imagine the looks on the faces of the uptight, yuppie parents at the school. The Bronco might as well have had Helter Skelter painted down the side. Right about then, Mary was mad as a hornet and I was in Jacksonville, happily unaware. As soon as the kids were dropped off, she went straight to the nearest car wash, slammed the door and in an angry growl said, I need this truck washed really good, right now. And make sure you get every bit of that blood off. Mary said the guy slowly backed away and asked if she was all right. She thought he was acting a bit odd, but he got right to work cleaning the old vehicle. It didnt dawn on her until a few minutes killed someone and dumped the body. He ob viously didnt want to be the next one to take a ride in back. about the deer. She also promised him that if there was ever going to be a dead person the back of that vehicle, it would most certainly be the guy who made the mess, not the one cleaning it up.

CORLETTS ROOFING LLC Reroofs Metal Roof Repairs FREE ESTIMATES (850) 643-7062 from Liberty County High School After starting their year by win ning 4 games in a row and then losing the their next 5, the Liberty County Baseball team has won 9 of their last 11 games to improve their During the current winning streak the Bulldogs have used a common theme: pitching and solid defense. Leading the Dawgs on the mound have been a trio of Seniors. Hayden Sweir, Caleb Barrentine and JoJo Durden have all had quality starts during the streak. Pitching is the key to our success. We are only going to be as good as our pitching allows us to be, said Coach Donnie Coxwell. Luckily we have been getting quality starts from our start ers and we have also been getting really good relief pitching when we need it also. Two of those relievers, Senior Dustin Watson and Junior Monroe Hinson have both been there when for us when they have been called upon to give us quality innings to give us a chance to win games. Another key to the Dawgs cur rent streak is their offense. At the beginning of the year we really struggled scoring runs and getting the big hit with runners in scoring position. It seems that everyone on the team has contributed to the offensive surge. Its not just one person lead ing the way and getting the big hit. It seems that everyone has come up with big hits the last three weeks, Coxwell said. When we were struggling early I think everyone was pressing a bit, the coach com relaxed and making good swings at good pitches and good things are starting to happen for us. The Dawgs regular season is winding down with only two weeks we start the District Tournament. This Thursday we play Bay High at home and on Friday we have our last District game of the season against Blountstown in Blountstown, said Coxwell. The District games are the most important for us. Those are the only games that count toward seeding for the tournament. The Dawgs are currently tied with South Walton for the third seed for the tournament so the game against Blountstown is an important one. The District tournament will be held at home this year.
