GOD made this for all to enjoy, live free and watch sunsets.   Hello to each one of you. This summer appears to be another scorcher. Make sure that visitors recognize our Safe Beach-Flag system. Read the postings at the  beach before you enter the water. Keep a close eye on your little children. It doesn’t take much water to pull out a 20 lb. baby into deeper waters. It is a well taught life-lesson to teach your kids how to swim. No matter if at the beach or just a  backyard pool. It doesn't take but a few seconds to turn fun, into a tragedy. I appreciate all the feedback from you readers. I had a lot more E-mails than usual the past few months. From local concerns to national policies there are changes going on. The amount of news coming from the Trump Administration is hard to keep up with. Just think for a second. Just 9 months ago, the investigation to try and remove Trump was still  pestering him, all the while he was having “world staged” meetings with different leaders of the World. The man is doing a great job for all that he inherited and promised to change. So many people have lied and resigned from their position. They knew it wouldn't be long  before they too were involved in a scandal of some type. Sound familiar? How many years has the same crap going on here in Walton County will continue? As I have said many times before. There are plenty of you who have been done wrong by the Judicial System, that unless you are willing to stand up in the streets, or even stand up to testify against these Deputies who have violated your rights! You might as well be like many people before you, just move away. I am certain that with my column, they know I am not done fighting for what I know is right! Those few Deputies and a Judge, ruined me from the life I lived, as a single father to a homeless desperate veteran searching for answers. (I still am searching for answers). I will go beyond the NWF daily news, straight forward facts. I don't state that Lt. Savage, Deputy Fannin, Deputy Wietzel, (7 others I have filed in a complaint), ALLEGED  facts. They print front page News from alleged, hear-say? 5 different times? I have court documented proof, that I filed a list of stolen item reports and between those mentioned, they now say they have “no record of it”? No explanations? Think again.  People, this is a common way for those deputies who have NOT done their job. To try and avoid prosecution for not following up on leads. If they like you, they help you? Not even. I now have several attorney’s who are digging up facts and asking unanswered questions. I will not just take it in the A**! I will not be silenced by an “unjust system” of abusive empowered people placed in charge, that have caused much more ruin than success here in Walton County. No inmate gets a fair shake at life here, after a sentence is served. To do what they did to remove me from my home of 16 years, those pukes who stole all of my family heirlooms, still think they are in the clear from prosecution? I am excited to have been meeting with so many agencies outside of Walton County that I feel there is something much larger of scale coming soon. I stay around here to witness this event. In my case, Judge accepted an E-mail stated to be from a witness who was not present to confirm that it was from him. Illegal. The same judge accepted as evidence a stolen WILL that was only in my personal belongings, from the scum who broke into my “locked room” and stole many past court papers, jewelry and much more. Also Illegal. His actions that he kept hidden behind closed doors in Chambers does NOT mean that he is excused from due  process for both parties. I had an attorney who was unable to speak, for the Judge was rude and directly ignoring his rights to “object to such” as well. Far from the joke you played.   After several months, I have ensemble a team of legal counsel and attorney’s who are NOT intimidated by this Walton County of corrupt ways to dealing with people’s lives. There are too many faces in this game now, even as they go across state lines to file theft. I will not rest until those people, who chose to become thieves and liars (in court), now moved away, are caught and charged for what they did to me and my family belongings. Even my own Son lied is on the run, truck driving, to avoid the reality that awaits him once he returns here, if ever again. Just as the Horn’s, run but cant hide. Eyes are on you all. We have papers filed yet to be served, for the lies of those individuals have cost me a lot. When you have more than 5 cases, it can become a Class-Action lawsuit, up to 100,000. I will strongly continue on my destiny to regain my “self  - worth’…….. To me, not you.  I will be damned if a Judge or any Deputy will be the reason I die. They tried already. You took actions that were NOT LEGAL to my civil rights! Based off of false reports?  The Dept. of Justice has confirmed the findings of my case and how inappropriate the Deputies involved did nothing to investigate (as insisted by us) at the time those “shitty neighbors” still lived across the road. When was the last time anyone has read an Apology letter from a Sheriff from Walton? Never has a Judge here made a formal written apology for issuing a sentence based on devious lying persons who made false charges. These are LOCAL officials. These are folks who grew up as “pot dealers” who finally rose to the rankings of becoming a “good ol’ boy in charge! Only to reassure the corrupt ways of doing things here remained the same, as if they can never be touched. Many of you who wrote in, also feel that the Deputies know and participate in drug dealings going on. They know who lives where and they use them to bait others. All the while risking your innocent children’s safety. Guns are drawn too quickly. How do you stop the cookie -thief from stealing all the cookies that your family saved up over your lifetime?

Thursday, July 12, 2018 Study (By John Hopkins Medicine) Suggests Medical Errors Now Third Leading Cause of Death in the U.S. Physicians advocate for changes in how deaths are reported to better reflect reality Analyzing medical death rate data over an eight-year period, Johns Hopkins patient safety experts have calculated that more than 250,000 deaths per year are due to medical error in the U.S. Their figure, published May 3 in The BMJ  , surpasses the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) third leading cause of death  —   respiratory disease, which kills close to 150,000 people per year. The Johns Hopkins team says the CDC’s way of collecting national health statistics fails to classify medical errors separately on the death certificate. The researchers are advocating for updated criteria for classifying deaths on death certificates. “Incidence rates for deaths directly attributable to medical care gone awry haven’t  been recognized in any standardized method for collecting national statistics,” says Martin Makary, M.D., M.P.H., professor of surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and an authority on health reform. “The medical coding system was designed to maximize billing for physician services, not to collect national health statistics, as it is currently being used.”  In 1949, Makary says, the U.S. adopted an international form that used International Classification of Diseases (ICD) billing codes to tally causes of death. “At that time, it was under  -recognized that diagnostic errors, medical mistakes and the absence of safety nets could result in someone’s death, and because of that, medical errors were unintentionally excluded from national health statistics,” says Makary. The researchers say that since that time, national mortality statistics have been tabulated using billing codes, which don’t have a built -in way to recognize incidence rates of mortality due to medical care gone wrong. In their study, the researchers examined four separate studies that analyzed medical death rate data from 2000 to 2008, including one by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the Inspector General and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. Then, using hospital admission rates from 2013, they extrapolated that based on a total of 35,416,020 hospitalizations, 251,454 deaths stemmed from a medical error, which the researchers say now translates to 9.5  percent of all deaths each year in the U.S. According to the CDC, in 2013, 611,105 people died of heart disease, 584,881 died of cancer and 149,205 died of chronic respiratory disease  —   the top three causes of death in the U.S. The newly calculated figure for medical errors puts this cause of death behind cancer but ahead of respiratory disease. “Top - ranked causes of death as reported by the CDC inform our country’s research funding and public health priorities,” says Makary. “Right now, cancer and heart disease get a ton of attention, but since medical errors don’t appear on the list, the  problem doesn’t get the funding and attention it deserves.”   The researchers caution that most of medical errors aren’t due to inherently bad doctors, and that reporting these errors shouldn’t be addressed by punishment or legal action. Rather, they say, most errors represent systemic problems, including poorly coordinated care, fragmented insurance networks, the absence or underuse of safety nets, and other protocols, in addition to unwarranted variation in physician practice  patterns that lack accountability. “Unwarranted variation is endemic in health care. Developing consensus protocols that streamline the delivery of medicine and reduce variability can improve quality and lower costs in health care. More research on preventing medical errors from occurring is needed to address the problem,” says Makary.    Michael Daniel of Johns Hopkins is a co-author on the study.   Trump Asked About Reuniting Migrant Families: The Solution Is 'Don't Come to Our Country Illegally' President Trump responded emphatically to reports that the administration will miss a court-imposed deadline to reunite migrant children with their parents. Speaking to reporters outside the White House before departing to Brussels for the  NATO summit, Trump said the problem could be solved if people stopped entering the U.S. illegally. That's the solution, Trump said. Don't come to our country illegally. Come like other people do. Come legally. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw ruled on June 26 that the separated migrant families with children under the age of five must be reunited by next week. Sabraw said Monday that he was very encouraged  by the Trump administration's real progress in reuniting the families. “I’m saying this, very simply. We have laws. We have borders, Trump said on Tues-day. Don’t come to our country illegally. It’s not a good thing.”  He condemned Democrats fighting against Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), calling their fight a disgrace. [ICE agents] go into harm's way. There is nobody under greater danger that the  people from ICE. ... We want to support ICE, not what the Democrats are doing, Trump said. Trump said Democrats want open borders and are soft on stopping crime. Remember this: Without borders, you do not have a country, Trump concluded. Donald Trump Nominates Brett Kavanaugh to Supreme Court President Donald Trump nominated District of Columbia Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh to fill the impending vacancy of retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. Trump said Kavanaugh is considered a judge's judge and a true thought leader. He served as a clerk for Kennedy. Kavanaugh offered remarks after being announced by Trump. He said that he values the fact Trump shows an appreciation for vital role of the American judiciary. No president has consulted more widely... to seek input about a Supreme Court nomination, he said. Mr. President I am grateful to you and I'm humbled by your confidence in me, Kavanaugh said to Trump. Kavanaugh spoke at length about his family. He joked that that his daughter's sports teams refer to him as Coach K. -- a reference to Duke University's championship basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski. I thank God every day for my family, he said. I will tell each senator that I revere the Constitution. I believe that an independent  judiciary is the crown jewel of our Constitutional republic, Kavanaugh said in his speech, as he now awaits his Capitol Hill hearing. Kavanaugh is a native of the District of Columbia and attended both Georgetown Preparatory School and Georgetown University. He was appointed to the appeals bench by President George W. Bush. TYSON FOODS HAS STARTED USING THIS LOGO!! WE DON'T BUY THEIR PRODUCTS ANY MORE!!!   Make sure the grocery buyer in your household reads this.     There should be more leading Australians like Dick, he gets to the bottom of important issues and anything that amounts to selling out Australia is very important. You may be aware that Dick Smith chain franchise stores are being pressured by the Islamic Council of Australia to gain 'Halal Certification' otherwise they will be  proscribed and banned from Muslim custom. prepared in accordance with the traditions of the Muslim faith. We are aware of an increasing number of large companies both in Australia and overseas, such as Kraft and Cadbury, who have obtained accreditation to use the Halal logo. We don’t believe th ey have done this because of any religious commitment but rather for purely commercial reasons. Perhaps these large organizations can afford to do this. While we have a choice however, we would prefer to avoid unnecessarily increasing the cost of our products in order to pay for Halal accreditation when this money would  be better spent continuing to support important charitable causes where assistance is greatly needed. We point out that we have never been asked to put a Christian symbol (or any other religious symbol) on our food requiring that we send money to a Christian organization for the right to do so. Others would add that money paid to ANY Muslim 'organization' (and you had better believe it: these people ARE 'organized') can easily find its way into the hands of Islamic extremist-fanatics and murderers, irrespective of assurances to the contrary. Next time you buy a block of Cadbury's chocolate, look for the Halal Certification seal on the wrapper. So, regardless of your own religious faith, you end up subsidizing Islam. The Council also controls the Muslim voter bloc which, as yet, does not have sufficient critical mass to make a difference - but give them time. Check those small labels on your food you are buying. Islam is making US money off of us.   The Florida Department of Health in Walton County (DOH-Walton) urges resi-dents to avoid contact with wild and stray animals to protect themselves from the risk of rabies exposure. In Florida, raccoons, bats and foxes, and unvaccinated cats are the animals most fre-quently diagnosed with rabies. Other ani-mals that are at high risk for rabies include skunks, otters, coyotes, bobcats, and stray or unvaccinated dogs and ferrets. Each year, (DOH-Walton) receives reports of rabid animals. Most recently, 2 foxes with exposure to people and pets were reported in May and June 2018. “Rabies is a potentially fatal disease. It is important not to handle wild animals, to be aware of unusual acting animals, and to keep pets vaccinated against rabies,” said Holly Holt, Health Officer. Rabies is transmitted through exposure to the saliva and nervous tissue from a rabid animal through a bite, scratch, or contact with mucous membranes such as the eyes, nose, or mouth. DOH-Walton works with Walton County Animal Control in respond-ing to incidents of animal bites, tests ani-mals for rabies through the Department of Health state laboratory, and quarantines animals as necessary. DOH- Walton also  provides rabies vaccinations to victims of animal bites, the only known effective treatment for rabies prevention in humans. The following are steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones against ra- bies:  Keep rabies vaccinations up to date for all pets and at-risk livestock.  Do not allow your pets to run free. Follow leash laws by keeping pets and livestock se-cured on your property. If your pet or livestock are bitten by a wild animal, seek veteri-nary assistance for the animal immediately and contact Walton County Animal Control at 850-892-8682.  Support animal control in efforts to reduce feral and stray animal populations.”    Spay or neuter your pets to help reduce the number of unwanted pets that may not be  properly cared for or regularly vaccinated.  Do not handle, feed, or unintentionally attract wild animals with outdoor food sources such as uncovered trash or litter.  Never adopt wild animals or bring them into your home.  Teach children never to handle unfamiliar animals, wild or domestic, even if they appear friendly.  Prevent bats from entering living quarters or occupied spaces in homes, churches, schools, and other similar areas, where they might come in contact with people and pets.  Persons who have been bitten or scratched by wild or domestic animals should seek medical attention and report the injury to the DOH- Walton at 850-892-8021. For further information on rabies, go to, or contact DOH- Walton at 850-892-8021.
