SEPTEMBER 3, 2014 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 3 by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor A wayward bear appeared to be looking for a ride when he approached Doyle Dan iels work truck a few days ago but it turns out he was just reaching through the window for a snack. Daniels and Wayne Weeks of Altha were repairing roads for the Deseret Cattle and Timber Company on South County Line Road at the Gulf and Bay County line when the bear was spot ted leaning against the driv ers door of the truck parked at the edge of the dirt road. Moments earlier, Weeks noticed a bear run across the road and alerted a dump truck driver. When the driv er pulled out, he saw the bear and took a quick photo with his cell phone. He sent the picture to Daniels, who was on a road grader, and Weeks, who was operating a bull dozer. The two came out to the road to have a look. Although it may appear in the photo that someone is sitting in the drivers seat, Daniels explains that is just his jacket tossed over the headrest. I wouldnt have let him get that close if I was in the truck, Daniels was quick to comment. I had the window down a little bit and there were some peanut butter crackers laying on the console, he said. You could tell he was trying to stick his arm in. The bear eventually went on down the road, per with more readily available snacks. But he wasnt the only bear in those woods that day. Within 15 min utes, we saw another bear and two cubs a little ways down the road, Daniels said. Daniels said he sees bears about every week, not just while working, but on his property in Kinard. He said bears enjoy help ing themselves to the corn in his deer feeders and noted that more than once hes had to rescue his son, Jody, who was trapped in a tree stand while bears settled in on the ground below to enjoy a snack.

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL SEPTEMBER 3, 2014 WASHINGTON Theres so much we dont know about what happens behind the scenes in the White House that it seems unfair or at least premature to heap criti cism on President Obama for appear ing as though he is not fully engaged in the problems swirl ing around him. We didnt know about the mission to capture and kill Osama bin Laden until after it happened, and we only learned about the failed effort to rescue journalist James Foley after he had been killed. What else dont we know? For a long time, some assumed he might be doing more in Syria than it appeared on the surface. Then again, may be he made the right call staying out of the con end up in the hands of the worst of the worst now that ISIS, the self-proclaimed Islamic state, has popped up in Syria. Russian President Putin is saying I told you so, now that ISIS has emerged as the domi nant player in the opposition to Syrian President Assad. Meanwhile, Obama has said Assad must go and ISIS must be defeated, two apparently was a Trojan horse in Putins mind, distracting the West with fantasies of democracy while Is To the extent the U.S. backed the ousting of Middle East dictators and didnt replace them bear some blame for the chaos we see. The Obama administration was not going to get bogged down in nation-building after a dozen years of war in Afghanistan and Iraq failed to build stable and Iraq. In Libya, which was liberated from Gad away as the country descended into chaos. The cess, military action taken with allies and with no casualties, and the Libyan people freed from the yoke of a cruel dictator. something quite differ ent. A country ruled militias is not any bodys success story. Nowhere is the rapidly changing Middle East more Qatar played in gaining the release of American Journalist Peter Theo Curtis. One of the smallest countries in the world and one of the wealthiest, Qatar is a primary supporter of Hamas, which bankrolls ISIS, although Qatars Foreign Minis ter said in a statement distributed to reporters that Qatar could be the key to defeating ISIS as suming that is where this terrorist offshoot of AlQaeda is getting its primary funding. Its tricky London, Harrods, as well as a number of luxury hotels around the world. Qatar also bankrolls Al Jazeera, a network with both English and Arabic Obama is pushing back hard against ISIS and Qatar is a key piece in the mosaic of the Middle East as are Kurdistan, Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Israel, the PLO, Hamas, and Jordan. Aligning with one or a few affects all the others. Should Qatar be penalized? ISIS in Syria attacked? Iranian help against ISIS encour aged? Kurds allowed to create their own nation? So before joining the chorus condemning Obama for lack of action, think of the complexity. Push any one part of this mosaic, and consequences emerge in other parts, none of them pretty. We need only remember that the U.S. armed the Mu into al-Qaeda which then spawned todays brutal ISIS faction. After all, the last outsider to suc ceed in Afghanistan was Alexander the Great. The Middle East mosaic COMMENTARY Late Night Laughs A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS. How about the Emmy Awards last night? Almost every show on TV was nominated for an Emmy, and once again Id just like to say its an honor to be ignored by your peers. DAVID LETTERMAN The VMAs are a chance for all of the former Dis ney stars to show up with their new tongue pierc ings. JIMMY KIMMEL President Obama watched the Emmys and said the U.S. would be out of the Emmys by 2017. DAVID LETTERMAN You can now buy a pack of beer containing 99 cans. A 99-can pack of beer. Who says America has lost its competitive edge? DAVID LETTERMAN A rare copy of Action Comics No. 1, which was sold on eBay for $3.2 million. Thats a lot of dis posable income. To buy a comic about Super man, you have to be as rich as Batman. I think that means Superman wins, right? JIMMY KIMMEL Over the weekend in California a big one, a 6.0 earthquake. It was so powerful that Lindsey Lohan was driving on the right side of the road. DAVID LETTERMAN Someone hacked the cloud. The cloud is some thing I dont really understand. Its like whatever language Honey Boo Boo speaks. CRAIG FERGUSON Apple is secretly developing a new product ru mored to be the largest iPad theyve ever made. Its said to be 12.9 inches across, and it will be JIMMY KIMMEL Did the Emmy Awards seem like a long show? I felt like Sophia Vergaras dress. I could hardly stay up. DAVID LETTERMAN Im telling you, Hollywood hasnt been rocked like this since the great kale shortage. CRAIG FERGUSON The Emmys are typically on Sunday night. But 38 years. One reason is the VMAs were sched uled for Sunday night on MTV. For those of you too young to know, music videos are something MTV used to play before it turned into a network for pregnant teenagers. JIMMY KIMMEL You know, its hard to believe. But its almost time for a new season of Dancing with the Stars. Ac cording to TMZ, the producers have a dream list. I have my dream for the next Dancing with the stars. His name is Rob Ford, Toronto mayor. JIMMY KIMMEL Burger King is moving to Canada. They bought the doughnut place, Tim Hortons. Financed by Warren Buffett, burger king will be moving to Canada to avoid paying taxes. Hearing about it, president Obama immediately took away Buf fetts medal of freedom.
