Justin Terry was heading to class when he lost control of his Buick Regal on SR 71 in the Sink Creek area. A family member said the brakes locked as he tried to slow down when he entered a curve. An earlier rain storm may have left some standing water on the road. The car slid into the ditch and Terry managed to release the seat belt and then climbed out the back window. The car, which he bought a month earlier to save gas while commuting to school, was totaled. After emergency workers responded to the accident and his family learned he was not seriously injured, Terry continued on to attend his class that evening at Chipola College.

Even if those making the decision on the need for a new high school have never been to Bristol, its unlikely theyll have any doubt where it is after a unique Power Point presentation from the Liberty County delegation. The presentation opened with a scenic view from the bluffs overlooking the Apalachicola River that starkly contrasted with a series of photos documenting the state of disrepair of the buildings that now Start Program on Michaux Road.

A combination of U.S. air power and covert support on the ground drove Libyan President came in its aftermath when the U.S. and its NATO allies were unable to build up moder ate democratic forces, and the country, left to chaos, became a failed state. The potential for success in the Kurdish re gion of Iraq is based on the same formula, air power plus U.S. advisors plus covert action. The difference is the Kurds and their depend and as a key ally. What the administration learned in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya is that to be successful we cant replace something with nothing as in Libya or something with tries were an open invitation for radical ele ments to intervene, and they did. Yet, as bad as these situations have been, they pale in comparison to what could happen at the hands of the Islamic State (IS). The IS video of the execution of journal ist James Foley could not have been more chilling, along with reports that some Eu ropean governments routinely pay ransom to free their people. Foleys captors wanted $100 million for his release, which President Obama rejected. Foleys parents released a statement on Facebook immediately after see ing the video, praising their sons courage and supporting their president. It takes courage to put the national security of the country ahead of meeting the demands of a terrorist group when it could mean saving a loved ones life. But President Obama got it right this time. Although clearly shaken by the bru tality of the be heading, and the threat that a second captured American journalist, Steven Sotloff, a freelancer for Time, could suffer the same fate, Obama did not back down in the battle against the selfdeclared Islamic State. Calling it a cancer on the Middle East, he said the U.S. would do what we must to protect our people . do whats necessary to see that justice is done . . Despite the gruesome nature of Foleys death, the administration has made gains in reversing the momentum of the Islamic State. The Kurds are solid allies, and with the help of U.S. air power, they and Iraqi forces pushed critical piece of infrastructure that had been taken. Kurds, in particular, are proving that if freedom-loving democratic forces want their same fervor as those who hold opposite ideas. Obama in his statement Wednesday said the Islamic State, the most well-funded terrorist group the modern world has known, has no ideology of any value to human beings. Their ideology is bankrupt. Enter the positive ideology to replace the negative, brutal, bankrupt ideology of the Is lamic State. Vibrant, successful democracies are the answer. It takes a strong, well-educated middle class and respect for minority rights to create a successful democracy, and the Kurds appear to qualify. If so, a newly minted state of Kurdistan could anchor the eastern Middle East the way the Israeli democracy anchors the western Middle East, creating beacons for in Libya, Af ghanistan, and Iraq.

(850) 643-3333 I was reading one of the many articles Ive seen lately about the problems caused by feral pigs and I started trying to re member when that term came into general usage. It certainly wasnt when I was a kid. Back then we hunted wild hogs and they fell in place right behind deer and turkeys on the Most Important Game Animals (MIGA) Scale that I just made up. Hogs enjoyed an honored status above squirrels, rabbits, ducks, dove and quail so killing one was a big deal in my world. Thats why it seems disrespectful now to put them in the same category as runaway house cats. As I thought about it further, I realized that there are several pig-related terms I use that might be confusing to folks who dont hunt hogs or those who read Field and Stream and such. And since Im prob ably not going to change my vernacular at this point, Im offering up the following as a glossary of my hog-speak. Boar/Boar Hog : Others use the term boar or wild boar to refer to any wild hog. Granted it sounds more menacing than feral pig, but I use it to mean a male hog of any age. I dont usually shoot boars because their meat tends to be gamey and tough. But if you want a mean, nasty look Sow : (Pronounced like south without the th). You may hear this term used to describe any female hog. When I say it, it refers only to a female who has or has had pigs. Most folks I hunt with dont shoot them because they may have a litter or be pregnant. Boar hogs look menacing, but sows with pigs can actually be more aggressive. Pigs/Piglets : To me, a hog is a fullgrown pig. As in the example above, I use pig most often to mean piglet. Gilt : If youre hunting hogs to eat, this is the one you want. Its a young adult fe male hog who hasnt had pigs yet. Heres a good way to tell: Look at her teats. If they are elongated, shes probably a sow. If not, shes a gilt. Shoat : A shoat is an adolescent hog, older than a pig but not full-grown. When I write about shoats, Im usually referring to a hog that isnt big enough to shoot. (Meaning that the amount of meat isnt worth the trouble to clean.) Barrow : This is one you dont see much of in the wild anymore. When I was younger, though, a lot of folks would trap hogs, castrate the young males and re lease them. Like oxen, this allowed them to grow large and fat rather than muscular and tough. It bothers me that hogs have become such a problem lately, especially since ban ning hog hunting is one of the ideas Ive seen for controlling their population. One dubious theory is that hog hunters are trap ping and releasing feral pigs on private property as an excuse to hunt them. That may well have happened, but I doubt it ac counts for the dramatic increase in the hog population. A more likely explanation is that not enough people still appreciate the experi ence of hunting them. And maybe thats because we started calling them feral pigs. of his family has enjoyed.

The game was a preseason test for both teams and it showed. The teams combined for eight turnovers in a half of football with the Sharks com ing out on top by the score of 20-2. The Sharks received the opening kickoff and were forced to punt after losing plays. The Tigers started their sition on their own 41. A sec ond down shotgun snap over the head of QB Shad Johnson put the Tigers in a 3rd and 20 situation in which they could not convert. A 49-yard punt by Dyan Lee pinned the Sharks on their own 12. The Tigers forced another punt after three downs and the punt snap sailed over the Shark punters head and out of the end zone for a safety. The Tigers took the 2-0 quarter. The Tigers were poised to free kick but the Tigers lost a returned the favor on the very next play when Tiger CB Malac Johnson intercepted a pass. However, the Tiger pos session was short lived when they fumbled on the next play giving the ball right back to the Sharks setting up the Sharks in Tiger territory at the 41. The Sharks moved the ball down to the 22 but lost the ball on downs. The Tiger offense once again sputtered behind their young offense line. After a sack on third down, the Tigers were forced to punt again and the Sharks took over in Tiger territory at the 48. Three plays later Tiger LB Anthony Wyrick forced a fumble recovered by Ti ger DT Stephen Matthews as the to an end. The second quarter opened up with a Shark interception re turned 44 yards for a touchdown and Port St. Joe took the 7-2 lead.

The Tigers could not move the ball and were forced to punt but got the ball right back with a Nathan Dunham interception. But once again, a Tiger fumble after two plays gave the ball back to the Sharks. The Sharks scored on a three-yard run but could not convert the ex time scored to 20-2. The Tiger offense managed a mere 34 yards in the half and Tiger FB Javas Davis led the offense with 20 yards rushing and LB Anthony Wyrick led the defense with seven tackles. The third quarter was played by backups for both sides with the Tigers Javas Davis scor ing on a run and kicker Derick goal bringing the third quarter to an end with the Tigers trail ing 20-11. The fourth quarter was des ignated for the JV for both sides and the Tigers scored on an Alex Buggs reception from QB Bryson Horne. A Denzel Washington 2-point conver sion ended the scoring for the night with the Sharks winning 20-19. The Tigers got down to the Shark one yard line with 1:30 left in the game but the game ended with two incom plete passes in the end zone. Head Coach Greg Jordan re mains optimistic as the season opener approaches, Things went wrong but they are things smarter with the ball, he said. We have to rely on our seniors and our defense to hold things together until we can get our offense churning. The Tigers will begin the season at home this Friday against the Class 4A Walton County Braves from DeFuniak Springs. The Tigers won the contest last year in overtime 24-21. Game time in Blount stown is at 7:30 p.m. (CT). A memorial presentation will be made to the family of Dona Leonard Dunn on Friday, Aug. 29 at half-time the Blountstown Tigers. Dona was, by any standard, the quintessential Tiger booster. As the wife of former coach James Dunn, teacher, and mother and grandmother of BHS students, she supported every activity in the school, but her special love was for athletics. From sewing and washing uniforms, baking cookies and raising funds, she made a difference that will not be forgotten. If there was a team Please join us at the game as we present Dona's family with a special plaque expressing our appreciation for the contribution she made to the young people in Calhoun County over the past 50 plus years.
