After investigators learned the girls identity and contacted her, she agreed to talk about her relationship with Allen Michael Smith. The girl said she met Smith a month earlier through a mutual friend and the two began exchanging phone calls and texts, eventually becoming as she described it boyfriend and girlfriend. She said she was aware he was 23 and told him she was just 15. Soon after they met, Smith asked her to text him some sexy pics. She said she did. She arranged to visit him one weekend, arriving at his residence at Riverview RV Park. After hanging out with some people in the area, she said they went back to his residence, where they had sex three times over the next 24 hours. Investigators went to Smiths residence Sept. 24 and served a search warrant to collect items to support the girls account of events. At that time, Smith made several incriminating statements, according to the offense report. He told investigators the victim was his girlfriend, acknowledged that he knew she was only 15 and said he had wanted to keep their relationship quiet until she turned 16. The report indicated that he admitted she spent the weekend with him and they had sex. He repeatedly stated that he loved her and said they had something special. Smith is being held on $30,000 bond.

The boy said Hays parked near a house and went inside, leaving him and his girlfriend to wait in the vehicle. The youngster said he was aggravating the young woman who then hit him three times in the face and head and used a racial epithet. Moments later, he said Hays returned with a bag of weed. When asked how he knew what Hays had gotten at the house, the boy said because Travis told me.

Well even have an Egyptian Room with a pharaoh, Gloria Keen an said. She is in charge of the preparations for the Veterans Memorial Railroad. The Haunted De pot is to replace the Haunted Train Ride, a short ride passing by scary creatures, not to be feared so much, however, due to the protection of the train but the Haunted Depot! Surely, it is not for the faint hearted. The layout was designed by Louis Smith, who also con tributed funds for the project, along with Garland Contractors donating time, ac cording to Keenan.

We can use a lot more help, said Ash ley Fox, an artist and scientist in geology who comes from Talla hassee to help with the event.

This week, both art ists painted large areas in two of the rooms. Mc Nairy, who actu ally does custom jewelry for a living, was work ing in the Skeleton Room. Fox was in the Fu ture Room, occupied by space shuttles and aliens. She explained how she happened to be free on week days: I just returned from South Korea, and I am looking for a job. I was an English teach er, over there for two years, and I am hoping my next job will be in science (geology). Fox has an artist page on Facebook. According to Keen an people even come from northern states to the special events, such as the ones for Hal loween, Christmas, and for Run Day, which takes place on the sec ond Saturday of every month.

Page 6 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL OCTOBER 2, 2013 COMMENTARY Late Night Laughs A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS. Americas threat: extremist politicians We tend to think that the only threat to Amer ica is terrorist attacks. A belief reinforced by the horror of the recent ter rorist attack in a shop ping mall in Nairobi, Kenya. Mass killings are now almost common place in America with the latest being the shooting and killing rampage at the Washington Navy Yard in Washington DC. But all threats to the American way of life are not so obvious. In some ways we are our own worst enemy. The in sidious threats from within are the most danger ous, and the corruption of Americas democratic representative form of government by extrem ist politicians does not bode well for Americas future. Even though we pound our chest, wrap ourselves laration of Independence and Constitution to our foreheads and declare our super patriotism, that isnt enough to ensure the continued success of the American experiment in Democracy. The Federalists and James Madison, devised a relative simple form of constitutional representa tive government in which we col lective ly elect our neigh bors, friends or total strang ers to repre sent us and our issues in the governmen tal process. Thereyou have it; a one-sentence description of the American experi ment in Democracy. In theory, a perfectly civi lized means of managing the collective affairs of the American people, but in practice, not so good. Why is such a beauti ful concept of democra cy failing the American people? Simple answer the democratic system is administered by people who are plagued by the Seven Deadly Sins. No surprise here, Americas experiment in Democ racy is only successful when administered by politicians who can rise above their human frail ties and serve the collec tive best interest of the American people. The greatness of the Founders like James Madison disappeared long ago to be replaced by political party goals and ambitions. The Su preme Court, state leg islatures, political pacts and a polarized American public are complicit in the demise of democratic representative govern ment. Madisons belief that we could elect rep resentatives that would look after Americas collective interest disap peared long ago. Thanks to extremist politicians like Senators Cruz and Lee and Tea Party Republicans in the House, the federal gov ernment that is supposed to represent Americas collective interest is be ing held hostage. The crux of the ex tremist outrage is Obam aCare, a plan to provide healthcare to all Ameri cans. Is the plan perfect? Of course not, and like Well, last night we got to see how Breaking Bad ended, and tonight we get to see how the federal government ends. JAY LENO Even if the government shuts down, Americans dont care. The last time Americans cared about anything was when they shut down the Twinkie factory. DAVID LETTERMAN O.J. Simpson was caught stealing cookies from the case when they had him stick his hand in the JIMMY FALLON Some people got together and set a new world record in Times Square for twerking.

DAVID LETTERMAN WASHINGTON The Battle of the Budget is peaking; the Battle of Billionaires is about to begin. In 1993, First Lady Hillary Clinton spear headed the campaign for national health insurance and failed, in part due to the insurance industrys famous Harry and Louise commercials. Those commercials helped convince the American pub lic that national health insurance was a bad idea. That was then. tacked on a defunding of Obamacare to the fund ing bill known as a CR (continuing resolution), which the Democratic-controlled Senate rejected. The House then passed a CR with a clause that would delay much of Obamacare for one year. This, of course, was a non-starter for Democrats, as was the next similar attempt by the House. As a result, there does not appear to be a grace ful or politically expedient way out of the conun Enter the billionaires. Folks such as the Koch brothers on the right and George Soros on the left ing versions of Harry and Louise. It would be a battle for the hearts and minds of the American public, but it might not play out as expected. Few battles do. Instead of convincing a substantial majority to coalesce around a campaign to pressure Con gress, such an advertising war might instead serve to further split the right and left into increasingly hostile camps. The red-state-blue-state phenomenon emerged from the upheavals of the s when Baby Boomers came of age amid the Cold War, the Vietnam War, the civil rights move ment, and womens lib, culminating with the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade abortion decision that invigorated re in the country has been mirrored in Congress where civility, decorum, and compromise have increasingly become casualties. Next, the Great conservative Tea Party movement which became Keynesians who adhere to the economic philoso phy of John Maynard Keynes who famously ad vised world leaders to spend their way out of the Great Depression of the 1930s. Tea Partiers do not make up a majority in Con gress or even a majority of the majority Republi cans in the House, but they wield enough clout to oust House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and to challenge Senate Minority Leader Mitch Mc Connell, R-Ky., and others in primary elections. All this is backdrop for the looming Battle of Billionaires, a battle made possible by the na tions growing economic disparity manifested by a shrinking middle class and an ever wealth ier group of modern-day Robber Barons. If this battle were to result in rational debate the coun electorate, but political ads are rarely rational or even truthful, and this leads to irrational schisms.

When President George W. Bush and the Republicans passed Medicare Part D without any plan to offset the cost, ing and kicking the furniture, acting like a bunch of spoiled, petulant chil dren which is what the Republicans are currently doing in their blather about ObamaCare. All industrialized countries except America have universal healthcare. Ive experienced universal healthcare in Europe. People in those countries are happy to have some form of healthcare. Healthcare is not an issue. No bitch ing, whining, tantrums as is the case in American society. America actually has universal healthcare. Its called Medicare. Even extremists like Senator Cruz knows that he and his whiners would be lynched if they ever tried to end Medicare. Another favorite right-wing Faux News allegation is that government pro viding healthcare to its citizens is so cialism. Americans dont know much about history, and these comments are just another indication of American ig norance. Does anyone remember the days of city and county hospitals? City and county governments funded hospitals and clinics that provided healthcare to its citizenry. I dont remember any cries of socialism as they were wheeling granny into the operating room. The State of Florida has a hospi tal in Chattahoochee for the mentally impaired. Are Governor Scott and the Florida Republican Legislature running a socialist medical hospital? Right-wing super patriots are quick to talk about defending their free doms. If a person is living their lives without healthcare insurance for them selves and their children, then they are not free. Statistically, all of us have a death sentence. Its just a matter of when it occurs. For those without ac cess to healthcare, they are dead people walking, but with access to a doctor, a hospital and medicines, then the inevi table can normally be delayed. There are millions of Americans without healthcare. Their only recourse is the hospital emergency room which works in the short-term for cuts, bruises You have cancer, heart disease, failing kidneys then you have just met real ity. Republican zealots and extremists who wish to deprive their fellow citi zens of healthcare for their self-serving political ambitions and hatred for Presi dent Obama are, in my opinion, vile, evil people. If such beliefs are conser vative principles, then count me out. A person in my family had cancer. A man of 55 years. Fortunately, he has a company provided Health Savings Ac count (HSA) with a $10,000 deduct the second $5,000 at 10% per visit or medical procedure. If a person has a job and can con tribute to a HSA, then no problem. For people without a job that will pay the deductible cost, a HSA means nothing. When faced with a serious illness, staying alive isnt cheap. This person is has had the radiation, chemotherapy, the operation and numerous doctor vis its. So far the cost of his cancer ordeal is approximately $310,000, and counting. Medicine prescribed during his chemo therapy cost $28.13 per pill. Without healthcare insurance, this man would be dead by now. Right-wingers say that the young and healthy wont buy insurance. All true, but be prepared to pay for their health care at the local emergency rooms. I recently spoke with a young man who was interested in buying a property from me. He said his dad would have to do the deal. The reason being that he had a motorcycle accident, was con father. Of course, no job and on Social Security assistance. The extremist politicians in Ameri can government who will shut down the government, default on the national debt and ruin the full faith and credit of America which will create economic chaos in the international markets are the real threat to America. Unless the American people smarten and demand that the government oper ate in the best interest of all Americans, then they are writing Americas obitu ary. COXS CORNER continued from page 6 The season is cranking up and the hunt is on! Football season is in full swing, and the 2013-14 hunting season is cranking up. Heck, in Zone A, theyre already into general gun season. But for the rest of us, Id like to cover some things you should know regarding three hunting seasons that are just around the corner: muzzleloading gun, of dove. Immediately following the close of crossbow season in each zone, the muzzleloading gun season begins. Season dates on private lands run Nov. 23 Dec. 6 in Zone B, Oct. 19 Nov. 1 in Zone C and Dec. 7-13 in Zone D. During muzzleloading gun season, bows and crossbows are also legal methods of tak ing game on private lands, in addition to muzzleloaders. But on wildlife management areas (WMAs), only muzzleloaders may be used. The most common types of game to take during muzzle loader season are deer and wild hog. In the deer category, only bucks may be taken, and one antler must be at least 5 inches long above the hairline. The daily bag limit on ant lered deer is two. You can hunt wild hogs year-round on private lands, and there are no bag or size limits. For hunting deer, muzzle must be at least .40-caliber. must be 20-gauge or larger. During muzzleloading gun season, you may not use muz zleloaders that take smokeless powder, ones that can be loaded from the breech or those with self-contained cartridge am munition capabilities. Its also legal to shoot gob blers and bearded turkeys during muzzleloading gun season. You may take only one per day, and theres a two-bird fall-season limit. But you cant hunt turkeys in Holmes County during the fall or winter. On WMAs, bag limits and antler/ size restrictions can differ, so before you hunt. Gray squirrelseason on pri vate lands starts Oct. 12 state wide and runs through March 2. Theres a daily bag limit of 12 gray squirrels, and shooting fox squirrels is against the law. Legal shooting hours are from a half-hour before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset. Except for turkeys, hunters may take resident game over feed such as corn but only on private lands. No baiting is allowed on WMAs. the mourn ing and white-winged dove season begins Oct. 5 and ends Oct. 28 statewide. Shooting phase are noon to sunset, and theres a 15-bird daily bag limit. lowed to use for hunting doves is a shotgun, but you cant use one larger than a 10-gauge. Shotguns must be plugged to a three-shell capacity (magazine and chamber combined). You may hunt doves over the crop has been planted and manipulated under normal ag ricultural practices. However, its against the law to scatter agricultural products over an area for the purpose of baiting. Some things you cant do while dove hunting include bows; shooting from a moving vehicle; and herding or driving doves with a vehicle. In addition to a Florida hunting license, youll need a $5 muzzleloading gun permit to hunt during muzzleloader season. To hunt deer, you need a $5 deer permit, and if youd like to take a fall turkey, youll need a $10 turkey permit ($125 for nonresidents). If youre going to hunt doves, youll need a nocost migratory bird permit, and if you hunt on a WMA, you also must have a management area permit, which costs $26.50. All are available at your local county tax collectors by calling (888) HUNT-FLOR IDA; or by going online to License.MyFWC.com. So if youre going after that monster buck during the muzzleloading gun season or small-game hunting with friends and family, I hope Ive helped explain some of the things you need to know. Outta the Woods by Tony Young Floridians hunting deer out of state need to be aware of CWD laws Florida hunters planning to hunt deer, moose or elk out of state this year need to be aware of certain laws and regulations aimed at preventing chronic wasting disease (CWD) from entering our state. CWD is a contagious, neurological disease that has been found in captive and wild cervids (white-tailed deer, mule deer, moose and elk) within 22 states, two Canadian provinces and in South Korea. The disease causes degeneration of the brains of infected animals, resulting in emaciation, abnormal behavior, loss of bodily functions and death. There is no known evidence that CWD can be transmitted to livestock or humans. The disease has been detected in New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Il linois, Iowa, New York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Michigan, Virginia, Missouri, North Dakota, Maryland and Texas. It has also been detected in Alberta and Saskatchewan, Canada, and in South Korea. Hunters need to know that it is against the law to bring into Florida whole carcasses of any cervid from any of the above-listed areas. The purpose of this measure is to prevent CWD from being brought into the state. The infective agent, called a prion, can be accidentally deposited into the environment, where it can persist for years and can infect other deer. Many states have a prohibition similar to Floridas in place. It is OK, however, to bring into Florida deboned meat skulls, antlers and teeth from any of these places, as long as all soft tissue has been removed. If anyone sees a sickly, extremely skinny deer (see photo at MyFWC.com/CWD), he or she should report its location to the toll-free CWD hotline: (866) 293-9282. Hunters who harvest such a deer should not handle it but call the CWD hotline. For more information about CWD or this rule, visit MyFWC.com/CWD. The website also provides links to wildlife and health agencies with more in-depth information about the disease.

Towables. commonly used names for a popular boating item, and they come in many different shapes and sizes. Towed water sports can be a great way to enjoy Floridas beautiful waterways, said Maj. Richard Moore, head of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions (FWC) Boating and Waterways Section. We just want everyone to be as safe as possible when doing so. Unfortunately, there have been several recent accidents around the state in which passengers on a towable device struck an object, such as a dock, channel marker, piling or people were injured and two were killed during these types of accidents. The FWC says these and other accidents can be prevented through a few key precautions, in cluding one particularly important one. When you are operat ing a boat that is towing passengers on a tube or something similar, their fate is in your hands, Moore said. They are not able to steer themselves in a safe direction and must rely on you to keep them safe. The main safety consideration is keeping them away from all other objects. objects or other boats, operators should not pull the tuber close enough to anything where there is risk of collision. Doing so could not only result in a citation but, more importantly, it puts the life of the person being towed in jeopardy. is this: Twice the line said. If you consider the length of your towline and are diligent in keep ing your boat at least two lengths of your towline away from all boats and other objects, you are much more likely to pro vide your riders with an enjoyable, safe time on the water. The FWC says that these additional safety tips are very important as well: behind a vessel are re quired to wear a life jack et; however, it cannot be The boat operator must have another person on board who can observe the rider(s) being towed and alert the operator of any issues. In place of the observer, the operator may use appropriate wideangle rear-view mirrors. However, the safest bet is to use a spotter or observer. That way, the operator can concentrate on driving the boat and pay attention to what is in front of and around him or her. The spotter has a much better ability to watch the person being towed. Boaters may pull riders on towable water sport items only during the day from a half-hour before sunrise until a half-hour past sunset. The FWC wants to ensure that boaters can enjoy all that Floridas waterways have to offer.

JROTC travels to Ft. Jackson for uniforms & equipment Lieutenant Colonel Bob Quint, Se nior Army Instructor for the Liberty County High School JROTC River Battalion, traveled to Fort Jackson, SC on Sept. 23 to obtain uniforms and equipment for the JROTC Cadets. Liberty County High School began a new JROTC Magnet Program in August, incorporating students from Blountstown High School and Altha High School. Last year, the JROTC Program had 43 Cadets, now there are 90 Cadets in the Program, including 17 from Blountstown High School and 4 from Altha High School. Because of the dramatic increase in the number of Cadets, there was an extreme short age of uniforms and equipment for the Cadets. This issue was quickly resolved with the recent trip to Fort Jackson. Fort Jackson, SC, located in city of Columbia, spans more than 52,000 acres, and is the largest and most active Initial Entry Basic Training Center in the U.S. Army. Because of its mild year round climate, Fort Jackson trains 50% of all soldiers and nearly 60% of the women entering the Army each year. Every year, over 44,000 soldiers complete Initial Entry Basic Training at Fort Jackson, SC. Soldiers who are unable to complete the ten (10) week Initial Entry Basic Training Course return all of their issued uniforms and equipment to the Central Issue Facility (CIF). Army High School JROTC and university ROTC units are allowed to draw and use any needed uniforms and equipment from the Fort Jackson CIF, absolutely free of charge. Because of the tremendous in crease in the number of Cadets now in the JROTC River Battalion, Aaron Day, the Principal of Liberty County High School, allowed LTC Bob Quint to travel to Fort Jackson to draw the needed uniforms and equipment for all of the Cadets. LTC Quint explained, My wife and I drove to Fort Jackson and I rented a 14 foot U-Haul truck and able that my Cadets needed. It took over six hours to load the truck and another 11 hours to drive the truck back to Bristol and the High School. Once I arrived, the Cadets off loaded everything into a new storage room at the school provided by the principal. Because of the sudden increase in the number of JROTC Cadets this year, over 80% of my students had no uniforms to wear. All of that changed with my recent trip to Fort Jackson, now all of the Cadets have uniforms. It was like Christmas in September for all the JROTC Cadets when I returned from Fort Jackson. The total value of the needed Army uniforms and equipment for the JROTC River Battalion was estimated at approximately $350,000.

Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3) will give scientists a better understanding of cancer causes and prevention. The Society is looking for local men and women between the ages of 30 and 65 from various racial/ethnic backgrounds with no personal history of cancer to help reach full enrollment of at least 300,000 people. Opportunities for local residents to enroll in CPS-3 will take place: Thursday, Oct. 17, 3-7 p.m. (CT), Bay Medical Center-Sacred Heart Health System, 801 E 6th St., Panama City, FL 32401 Friday, Oct. 18, 7-11 a.m., Gulf Coast Medical Center, 2024 State Ave., Panama City, FL 32405. By joining this study, people can literally help us save lives, giving future generations more time with families and friends, more memories, more celebra tions, and more birthdays, said Dee Hayhurst, Unit Executive Director of the American Cancer Society, Florida birthdays, celebrating our own 100th birthday in 2013, we can think of no more Signing up requires a one-time inperson visit to read and sign a consent form, complete a survey, have your waist measured, and give a small non-fasting blood sample like what youd do during a routine doctor visit. Participants will also complete a more detailed survey at home and will continue to receive periodic follow-up surveys in the future that researchers will use to look for more clues to cancers causes. Participants must schedule appoint ments prior to registration events. This can be done online at www.cancer.org/ Florida locations tab or by calling (888) 604-5888. Many individuals diagnosed with cancer struggle to answer the question, What caused my cancer? In many cases, we dont know the answer, said Alpa V. Patel, Ph.D., principal investigator of CPS-3. CPS-3 will help us better understand what factors cause cancer, and once we know that, we can be better equipped to prevent cancer. CPS-3 is the latest addition to the Soci etys groundbreaking cancer prevention studies, which have been instrumental in helping identify major factors that can affect cancer risk. Researchers say CPS-3 holds the best hope of identify ing new and emerging cancer risks. But its success depends on members of the community becoming involved. Researchers will use data from CPS-3 to build on evidence from those earlier cancer prevention studies, which began in the 1950s and involved hundreds of thousands of volunteer participants. link between cigarette smoking and lung cancer, demonstrated the link between larger waist size and increased death rates from cancer and other causes, and showed the considerable impact of air pollution on heart and lung conditions, said Hayhurst. The American Cancer Society com bines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end suffering from cancer.

New digital mammography machine. by Domenick Esgro, contributing writer BLOUNTSTOWN The Bulldog Junior Varsity came home victorious after traveling to Blountstown for the last game of the season on Thursday. It was a very low scoring game as both teams defensive units held their ground with tenacious ferocity. This was one of the most in tense and exciting games I have participated in, said Bulldog Coach David Shuler. Both teams played a really good game, he said. Tommy Hatcher was the leader for the offensive line, according to Coach Shuler, who also pointed out, Colton Capps (#22) ran the ball extremely well. Coach Shuler was pleased with his defense stating that, the defensive line held ex tremely well. Steven Hobby (#60) and Kyle Holcomb (#72) had a great deal to do with the defenses success as they and their team held the Tigers score less the entire game. The JV game scheduled for next week against Chipley has been canceled and will not be rescheduled. This closes out the JV Bulldogs season with a win ning record of 3-2. JV Dawgs close a winning season against Tigers 6-0 DANIEL WILLIAMS PHOTOS LEFT: Blaine Tharpe (#42) to avoid Tracy Carillo (#56) as Kyle Holcomb rushes to his aide.
