We remind our readers that all are presumed innocent until proven guilty. Man found with 36.5 grams of marijuana and 98 pills A 28-year-old Blountstown man was arrested after investigators found well over an ounce of marijuana along with pills and drug paraphernalia in a bag on his grandmothers bed. Alton Bailey was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of a place of worship and dispensing prescription drugs without a license. When investigators from the Calhoun County Thursday morning, Bailey answered the door. They noticed the odor of raw marijuana, according to the arrest report. The odor grew stronger when they stepped inside. After he failed to convince Lt. Todd Wheetley that the smell was from a small bag of marijuana he pulled from his pocket, Bailey and his grandmother led them to her bedroom. Theres his bagI dont know whats inside, the grandmother told them. A large red plastic bag was on the end of the bed along with two pistols registered to Bailey. Found inside the bag was a shoebox that held two jars of marijuana, including some pre-packaged for sale, along with two digital scales, a pill bottle with marijuana seeds, a clear plastic bag with marijuana, a box of plastic sandwich bags and a bottle with 98 Abilify prescription pills. The total amount of the marijuana seized was 36.5 grams. A total of $937 in cash was also found. Bailey stated that the marijuana was his and his grandmother was not involved. ALTON BAILEY Teens charged with ATV theft A 19-year-old man was charged with grand theft when a deputy discovered the 2012 Arctic Cat ATV he was painting in his garage had been stolen. Deputy Scotty Norris went to Matthew Hunter Tolleys home in Blountstown on April 2 after getting a tip that he might have the missing vehicle. He met the deputy at his patrol car and as they walked toward the carport, Tolley commented that the ATV was sketchy and said it might have been stolen. He initially stated that a friend and a Hispanic man had brought the ATV to him and offered to pay him $50 to paint it. The deputy noted in his report it was strange that someone would repaint an ATV in likenew condition. Tolley later confessed that he and Kenya Lamar Baker Jr., 18, of Blountstown had taken the ATV from a residence off CR 274 in Altha on April 1. On April 3, Baker gave a statement admitting his part in the theft. He said he and Tolley parked on the road in front of the victims home early that morning. He said they entered the property and pushed the ATV back to Tolleys vehicle, loaded it up and brought it to his Sherry Avenue residence. Baker, who is currently on probation, was also charged with grand theft. The ATVs owner said the vehicle was valued at $5,700. KENYA L. BAKER JR. MATTHEW TOLLEY A man wanted for allegedly attacking his wife last month was taken into custody on April 3 and charged with battery. The victim met with a deputy around 8:40 p.m. on March 22 to report that Kevin Atkinson, 27, of Blountstown had just snapped. According to the incident report, the woman was in tears and had several red marks on her neck and face, as well as scratches on her left hand. She stated that Atkinson yelled and cursed at her before grabbing her head and hitting it against the wall. She said he threw her to the ground and repeatedly kicked her in the ribs. A relative took her to the emergency room. A warrant was issued for Atkinsons arrest after several unsuccessful attempts to contact him. KEVIN EARL ATKINSON Two men are facing charges after a deputy stopped their vehicle at the intersection of Hwy. 274 and Hwy. 167 in Altha around 10 a.m. Saturday when he recognized the driver as someone who did not have a license. Gregory Moore, 24, of Blountstown, told Deputy Christian Smith he knew why he had pulled him over and admitted he had no insurance on the vehicle. When asked if he had anything illegal in the vehicle, Moore told him there was a shotgun under the seat. The deputy removed a 12 gauge Parner Pump GREGORY MOORE JOSHUA SOURBECK compiled by Journal Editor Teresa Eubanks shotgun that was loaded When asked if there was anything else in the truck, Moore replied: Im not sure. Search it. The three passengers remaining in the vehicle a woman, her minor child and Moores friend, Joshua Sourbeck, 25, of Altha were asked to step out so that the truck could be searched. When the deputy looked in the middle console, he reported that held a marijuana pipe and a small blunt along with a straw that later tested positive for methamphetamine. Two cut straws were found hidden in the glove box. A small handgun was found in the back seat floorboard, where Sourbeck had been sitting. Sourbeck, a convicted felon, was arrested for being in possession of a gun. Other items located in the back seat included an oval case that held three 50cc needles, four cotton tips and a glass vial capped with an eraser. A in the needles indicated it was methamphetamine. After both men said they were just giving the woman and her child a ride, she was allowed to leave. As he was being arrested, Sourbeck shouted out that he had been set up and said, I dont know anything about any guns. Sourbeck was charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a paraphernalia, possession of methamphetamine and violation of state probation. Moores charges include driving while license suspended or revoked, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of methamphetamine. Woman charged with burglary An Altha woman was arrested after her former boyfriend reported that two guns had been stolen from their hiding place in his home. He said that Jennifer Allen, 36, was the only one who knew where he kept his Remington 870 Express 12 gauge and 1944 model 8mm Mauser. The owner said he realized the guns were missing three weeks after his girlfriend had left. The stolen revolver was conducted a traffic stop on Allens car on April 1. Allen admitted to investigators that she had entered her former boyfriends home in the early morning hours of March 27. She said she was looking for something to use to get high or something to sell so that she could get high, and stated that she took both hydrocodone and oxycodone from the residence. She said the babysitter and homeowners children were asleep during the burglary. Allen was charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling on April 1. JENNIFER ALLEN Battery arrest made CORRECTION In last weeks story about the arrest of Gary B. Jordan, it was incorrectly stated that the woman he attacked was his grandmother. It was not. The victim was a younger woman who was visiting the grandmother. The arrest report we received was heavily redacted, with all of the names blacked out, giving the appearance that Jordan, his grandmother and a younger relative were the only ones present. It was unclear that a fourth person was at the home. The attack started after Jordan began using vulgar terms while speaking with his grandmother, giv ing the appearance that she was the victim. The victim was attacked when she spoke up for the grandmother.

Page 6 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL APRIL 9, 2014 WASHING TON Many op ponents are not only rooting for the failure of the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, they are doing what they can to make it fail, spreading fear about its impact and telling young people not to sign up. This is conduct unbecoming pose a federal law and work for its re peal, quite another to undermine it. It is the difference between predicting fail ure and working for failure. The language used today partially echoes arguments made by Republi cans against Social Security in 1935 and Medicare in 1965 about big govern ment and socialized medicine, but those generally remained in the realm of criti cism. A closer analogy is found with the most virulent opponents of the Vietnam War who crossed the line from dissent to making overt efforts that could bring about Americas defeat. Meanwhile, President Obama took a victory lap on Tuesday, marking the en rollment of 7.1 million people for health insurance over the market exchanges put in place Obamacare. The law is do ing what its supposed to do; its work ing, Obama exulted in his most upbeat public remarks in a long time about the law. Critics predicted the administration would never meet its projected goal of signing up 7 million people by March 31st, but a last minute surge took the numbers over the top, and hundreds of thousands more will likely complete the process over the next days and weeks. Other hurdles remain, from wheth er the nations supply of primary care doctors will be overwhelmed to poten tial hikes in premiums if the number of sign-ups doesnt include enough young, healthy people, the so-called invinci bles. Obama said the dire scenar ios promoted by critics have not been borne out by the facts. Many of the tall tales have been de bunked: there are still no death panels, Armageddon did not arrive, Obama said, declaring that the law is here to stay and Republican efforts to repeal it over. That may be wishful thinking. The GOP may not succeed in repealing Obamacare, certainly while hes in of are so dug in on their opposition to the law that they will likely continue to push repeal. It may be futile, but if they win the Senate in 2014 and the White House in 2016, they will have to do something to placate their base, even if its just su The latest poll shows Obamacare at its highest level of popularity, 49 per you dig into the numbers, three-quarters of Democrats feel positive about the anything nice to say about Obamacare. Almost half the states, 24 in all, have refused to expand the Medicaid program to cover the working poor even though the federal government pays the entire of 90 percent of the cost thereafter. A handful of states with Republican gov ernors have accepted Medicaid expan sion New Jersey, Ohio and Arizona and there will be more over time as Obamacare becomes increasingly en trenched and less partisan. Such tactics are legal and appropriate for opponents of a law. Disseminating false information and encouraging peo ple not to sign up for health insurance is not. It is the difference between dissent and sabotage. Obamacare and the difference between dissent and sabotage COMMENTARY Late Night Laughs A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS.

Every time theres a huge Lottery or Power ball jackpot, people talk about what they would do with all that money if they won. Mostly its the same old stuff man sions, vacation homes, yachts, expensive cars and the like. Not me, though. My dreams are much simpler. I have enough stuff. I just want stuff that works like its supposed to. I could list two dozen things I own that func tion just well enough to keep me from taking them to the dump, but not well enough to count on at any given time. Why? I suspect its a ge netic condition or a curse handed down through the generations. One thing Im sure of is that got it from my father. Most kids learn from their dads how to main tain things like cars, boats, lawn mowers, etc. If you grew up with Gene McClellan, however, the most frequent lessons focused on jury-rigging whatever you were using just long enough to get the job done. And if you were using his stuff, that knowledge was incredibly handy. For example, Bill and I were driving his old Bronco to the camp one day when we heard something dragging the ground. We thought it the truck we discovered that, nope, it was the gas tank. The metal straps had rusted apart and the tank was scraping along the road. We found some rope, tied the tank back up to the body and went on our merry way. Bill told Daddy what happened and he said, Yep, I need But two years later, when he traded the Bronco on a new model, I saw the old one at the Chevro let place downtown. Just for grins, I looked un derneath. Sure enough, the same two pieces of rope were still there. Throughout my childhood, I thought stuff like that was normal. It wasnt until later that I realized that other folks actually bought quality stuff, took care of it and counted on it to work when they needed it. The very next thing I realized is that quality stuff costs money, which is why Daddy often bought things that were past their prime. Preven tive maintenance would be throwing good money after bad. Id like to say I learned from that experience, but a quick inventory around my house suggests otherwise. I have an Evinrude that Bill gave me last year. Its so old that I have to buy parts on the Internet. Ronnie Bridges has all but pronounced it dead, but I keep using it anyway. (Hey, it was free.) My Ford truck leaks when it rains, uses a quart of oil every thousand miles or so and the third door wont open. The lights on my trailer work about as well and as often as Congress. And because the original tips have been broken off. But Ill keep patching them up to get as much use out of them as possible. Thats because there was another lesson that Daddy taught me, though Its that things arent nearly as important as experiences. Daddy owned a lot of junk, but there are a lot of wealthy people in this world who didnt have nearly as much fun with a lot nicer boats, trucks and guns. Its true that money doesnt buy happiness, so Im not waiting on wealth to start enjoying life. If I every do strike it rich, however, you can bet Ill have stuff that works.
