Bristol residence burns .

An electronic. game that was left on is thought to be the cause of a blaze that damaged a mobile
home in Bristol Dec. 8. The family Sean and Felicia Logan and 10-year-old Chance were
on their way to town around 11 a.m. when the fire started, according to Bristol Fire Chief Dale
Hobby. He said the family managed to save a gun safe and a few firearms, but lost a lot, including
two beloved pets. "The family received some temporary assistance from the local Red Cross
Chapter and are now staying in Sumatra," Hobby said. JOHNNY EUBANKS PHOTO

Despite the glitch, it was a
great night for the mini-railroad
ride. On Saturday night alone,
"we had between 300 and 400
riders," said Moran. "We ran
every single ride chock-a-block
full until the power went out."
The accident led to "two pri-
mary lines slapping together,"
according to Lewis.
After making the initial repair
and getting the power on again
the first time, Lewis discovered
a weak connection on a jumper
pole at the Apalachicola River.
"With the load fluctuating, the
connector went bad and sepa-
rated, which caused a line to go
dead," he explained.
What took a little time, though,
was determining which of three'

lines were affected.
He said the power had to
be shut off at the substation in
Blountstown, which allowed
him to use a portable jumper to
bring the system back up more
After turning the power back
on at the substation, the comput-

erized system detected an imbal-
ance in the electrical output and
shut down. "We had to bring it
back up and the phases had to be
more in balance," he said.
He said the power was out for
less than two hours overall, with
many residents experiencing only
an initial minor outage.

Temporary lane closures on SR 20
over Apalachicola River Bridge
CHIPLEY- Weather permitting, motorists traveling SR 20

encounter minor delays from 8:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. (CST) while a
Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) maintenance crew
cleans the bridge. Crews will begin on the westbound bridge, then
transition to the eastbound bridge.
Motorists are reminded to use caution and obey traffic flaggers,

Man charged
A man who was heard yell-
ing, "I'll blow your brains out,"
in the background of a 911 call
is now facing charges after an
altercation at his grandfather's
home in Hosford.
Jerry Lee McCullen was ar-
rested for battery on a person
over 65 years of age, grand
theft of a firearm and criminal
mischief after an altercation at
his grandfather's residence just
before 9 p.m. Friday, accord-
ing to a report from the Liberty
County Sheriff's Department.
After hearing the threat over
the phone, the 911 dispatcher
waited until the caller, identi-
fied as Willard McCullen, 73, of
Vilas Sumner Road, came back
on the line and told him he was
having some problems with his

with battery on grandfather


compiled by

report, the suspect and his
girlfriend were wrestling in the
grandson's room and knocked a
hole in the wall. When the elder
McCullen responded and found
the damage, the two men began
arguing and the grandson was
told to get his things and leave
the house.
The grandson then picked
up a TV he owned and threw it
outside, where it landed in the
yard in pieces.
The elder McCullen then
reached for a gun he kept near
his recliner but his grandson
overpowered him and took the

.38, leaving the older man's
arms bruised and cut.
McCullen said that's when he
called the sheriff's office and the
dispatcher heard his grandson's
The young McCullen then
went into his grandfather's bed-
room, took three long guns from
a gun cabinet and carried them
out to his truck. He damaged a
screen door when he kicked it
as he tried to take a television
set outside.
The grandson and his girl-
friend took off before a deputy
arrived. When the officer re-
turned around 10:30 p.m., he
found the couple were back at
the residence, where they had
returned the guns and were pack-
ing up the rest of the younger
McCullen's possessions.
McCullen was arrested and
taken to the Liberty County

Woman arrested for hitting

man and ramming vehicle
A Tallahassee woman was arrested last week after she allegedly
started a dispute at the home of a Blountstown man, hit him and
then rammed the car she was driving into his parked vehicle, ac-
cording to a report from the Blountstown Police Department.
Scelina N. Irving, 25, was charged with domestic battery and
criminal mischief after the Dec. 13 altercation.
The report stated that Irving went to the residence of Patrick
Bess at the Boyd Street Apartments around 2 a.m. When Bess met
Scelina at the door, a verbal altercation ensued and Bess reported
that she struck him in the face.
Bess told deputies the woman fell to the ground after he pushed
her away.
Irving picked up a floor lamp and hit the back of Bess' vehicle,
damaging the trunk area.
Irving then got in the vehicle she arrived in and rammed it into
the back of Bess' vehicle, causing more than $1,000 in damages.
Damages to the vehicle she was driving, which was not hers, also
sustained over $1,000 in damages.
The .police report did not identify the owner of the vehicle the
woman was driving.

Second agriculture

workshop to be held

in Live Oak Jan. 9
from the University of Florida
Florida Research and Education Center-
Suwannee Valley (NFREC-SV) and The
Original Florida Tourism Task Force will
be offering the second of three workshops
on Tourism Opportunities for Farmers in
Live Oak on Tuesday January 9, 2007
from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Camp Weed &
Cerveny Conference Center, Live Oak,
Florida. In this workshop farmers will
learn about developing a business plan,
insurance and licensing issues, working
with tour groups, and customer relations.
According to Walton County Exten-
sion Agent Bruce Ward, who presented
at the first workshop on December 6,
"Our economy is evolving into an expe-
rience economy and farm-based experi-
ences such as overnight farm stays, trail
rides, corn mazes and bird' watching are
desired by a growing number of visitors
to Florida." This series of workshops will
help area farm and land owners start or
improve such businesses.
Ward also encouraged land owners
to "take advantage of opportunities pre-
sented by existing natural resources" to
"help visitors realize their dreams;" these
workshops are designed to help farmers
and land owners do just that. This second
workshop promises to be even more ex-
citing and informative than the first one.
NFREC-SV serves the diverse agri-
cultural interests in the region including
vegetables, fruit crops, protected culture,
forestry, tobacco and other forage crops.
The Original Florida Tourism Task Force
is a tourism marketing group that seeks to
promote yet preserve the natural and cul-
tural attractions of the area to increase the
number of visitors and extend their stay.
The registration fee is $10 which in-
cludes lunch, refreshments and program
materials.. The registration deadline is

books and those were good so
i figured the rest of the series is
going to be good. Also I want a
slip and slide. I want it because
when it gets hot I can use it to
get cooled off and also it's fun.
The last think I want is an etch-
a-sketch. I love drawing block
figures so this would be very oc-
cuping. I think I deserve it be-
cause I've done all my chores, I
ate all my fruits and vegetables,

want a soccer ball is because

r with it indoors or outdoors and
because you don't have to go
outside and all dirty.

Once upon a time
there was this boy named
Darrell. He was nine years
old, and let me tell you
if there's one thing I re-
member he loved Christ-
One day, November
29, 2006 he got bored,
so he decided to write
a Christmas list. He only
wanted three things; a
cell phone so he could
call his friends, a CD play-
er so he didn't have to go
in his sister's room, and
last he wanted a Play Sta-
tion 3 because when he
had a Play Station his little
sister always would mess
it up. Yeo I'remember him
like it was yesterday. He
was me!. .-Darrell Burke
.. .w a j J. .- ,

Dear Santa,
SI believe in you. Here
are the gifts I want. I need
a stuffed animal for me to
hug up in the bed with,
and keep me warm all
the time. Well, the other
gifts is a puppy! After
school I can play with it
all day. Now for my last
gift, I want some books to
read before I go to bed.
The kind I want is Judy B.
Jones because I love that
kind of book. This is all I
want. -Brittany Shuler

If I had three Christmas
presents under the Christ-
mas tree I hope one of
my Christmas presents
are a Razor Phone. After I
get a Razor Phone I want
a computer, so I can play
games on it when I get
bored. But, sometimes
I will read the Bible be-

cause I care about Jesus
more than anything.
After a computer I
want mostly love. from
God. All you have to do
to get love from God is
pray in a quiet area, and
ask God to come in your
heart, and wash all your
sins away. That's all you
have to do to get love
from God.
Do you know why we
celebrate Christmas? If


you thought it is Jesus'
birthday your answer is-
correct. -Hellen Nava

Dear Santa,
The three presents I want
for Christmas is number one
is a four wheeler. The rea-
son I want a four wheeler is
because they will get you
places, and they are fun to
ride on.
The second thing I want
for Christmas is a skate-
board. The reason I want
a skateboard is because
skateboards can get you
places, and also you can
learn how to do tricks.
The third thing I want for
Christmas is a dog; a red
nose pit bull dog. The rea-
son I want a dog is because
it will protect me in case
someone or something tries
to'hurt me. Another reason
I want a dog is because I
like the way a red nose pit

There is no charge for church announcements, but we run each announce-
ment only once. If you would like to repeat the same announcement, we can
do so but must charge for the space as though it were an advertisement.
Often, churches want to publicize events several weeks prior to the
activity. If you can provide information about different aspects of the
event, we can run a series of announcements. For example, if a church
is celebrating homecoming, the first story might be about the history of
the church, the second story might give some background on the singers
:or special speakers to be featured, and the third article could focus on the
day's schedule of events. Each article should end with the basics time,
date and location.

too noisy.
Hammer replied, "What about
Brother Screw, you have to turn him
around again and again to get him to
accomplish anything."
Screw spoke up, "Brother Plane
has no depth, all his work is on the
Plane responded, "Brother Rule is
always measuring folks as though he
were the only one who is right."
Rule complained, "Brother Sand-
paper is always rubbing people the
wrong way."
Then the Carpenter of Nazareth
enters to make a pulpit from which
to proclaim the Gospel. He used the
Hammer, Screw, Plane, Rule, Sandpa-
per, and all the other tools. When it
was finished, Brother Saw commented,
"Brethren, I see that all of us are work-
ers together with the Lord."
God's purpose is to redeem us in
love-to be His holy children so we
will praise His glory and grace. God
intends to reveal His purpose through
the church.
Having stated God's purpose for
the church, how do we accomplish it?
Paul explains that it begins with prayer.
It is a God sized task that cannot be ac-
complished in human strength or abil-
ity alone.
Next, is to maintain unity within
the church. Jesus said, "Any kingdom
divided against itself will be ruined,
and a house divided against itself will
fall. (Lk 11:17 NIV)" Though Jesus
went on to apply it to the kingdom of
Satan, the principle holds true of the
Kingdom of God. If the church is to
accomplish God's purposes, it must be

The real reason for the season

To the editor:
God gave us His greatest
blessing, the gift of Jesus' birth.
It is a blessing to give and a
blessing to receive. I pray that
the Christ Child born in a man-
ger will always be a blessing to
you and me. We give our highest
honor and praise of thanksgiving
to the Holy One who is the Light
of the World, our Savior and our
salvation. Truly God is love and
every breath we breathe.
We can only shed tears of joy
as we witness and thank God for
our life, for the peace we have
within ourselves, our family, our
friends and the many memories.
we have shared down through
the years. Behold God's only be-
.gotten Son, behold Virgin Mary.
Christ the Savior is born, let
earth receive her King.
Over two thousand years ago
a real nativity scene unfolded in
Bethlehem. Jesus was born King
of Kings and Lord of Lords. He
is the power and the glory, as one
people under God, we call upon
God our Father giving thanks
and praise to His Holy name. In
solemn prayer we give praise and
thanksgiving for His many bless-
ings and all He is to us, realizing
He brought us from a mighty
long ways. Back in the day we
didn't have much for ourselves
or to offer on Christmas Day, but
lots of lo\e to give.
Over 50 years ago, when
families would come together
for Christmas dinner, the love of

Christ was there too. An apple

mas presents and. merry Christ-
mas greetings. The people who
made my Christmas merry and
bright are now sleeping but I'm
overjoyed to have witnessed an
old-fashioned Christmas where
God and love was there. Christ-
mas is very different now, most
of us have plenty of everything
but love. If we had ten thousand
tongues we could not praise Him
enough for this Christmas Day.
There was no place for Christ
the Savior to be born, no room
at the inn, no love shown. When
the time had fully come for
Virgin Mary to deliver and no
room in the people's heart for
Jesus. Looking back in the day
and time, He was born in mere
poverty conditions, while some
of the people enjoyed the best
of the best. Envision a place, a

Litter mars woman's walks

with her dog in Blountstown
To the editor:
I like to walk my Westie dog, Tiger, near our home, it's good
exercise for him and for me. But, what has happened that some
people just don't give a dam about the world they live in. I am talk-
ing about the. litter and junk people throw out of their vehicles. I
think they are trying to clean, out their car or truck before they get
home, and I am wondering if their homes and yards look as bad
as theN leave the roads and highways looking. Finishing that last
beer or soda and thro%\ ing ajyI the e\ idence before reaching home,
-polishing off that hamburger and leaving the garbage along the way,
deer carcasses in the creeks and leaving old mattresses and appli-
ances on some ones property.
I think we all need to remember a quote by Edward Bok, "Leave
the world a little better place than we found it."
Sandra Parrish, Blountstown

where humans don't live, yet
Christ was born there. Long ago,
it was prophesied of His coming
and intended and meant to be.
The Heavenly bodies in the sky
revealed to the Wise Men His
birth and they followed and car-
ried gifts. The news spread like
wild fire to people everywhere,
Christ the Savior is born.
We were not there, only
through faith and dreams we can
only believe. During the days of
old when Virgin Mary was turned
away, little did people know that
Jesus is our Savior and our Sal-
vation and will some day die for
our sins. He would heal the sick
and raise Lazarus from the dead.
Would walk the water, calm the
wind and waves in the sea, turn
water into wine, feed five thou-
sand people, healed the woman
who had been sick for 12-long
years (and had spent all she had)
and countless other miracles He
would conquer death and have
all power in heaven and earth He
is the life and the resurrection.
Truly He is the light of the world
and lives forever and ever.
Jesus had no where to lay His
head on to call home. He never
went to school or received a de-
gree, yet He was the wisest man
who ever lived. Christ did no
wrong, yet people hated Him.
Some of the same people who
witnessed Christ's birth were
living when He was crucified.
His mother was there too. God
gave His only begotten Son as a
gift to the wvorld. God is the per-
fect example, He loved us and
we should show love for each
other throughout the year.
Joy to the world, Christ the
Savior is born, let earth receive
her King.
On His Mission,
Helen Hall, Bristol

Thomasville presents memorable
Victorian Christmas experience
by Marti Vickery, Operations Manager
TRIP Time spent in Thomasville was very fruitful! We enjoyed
their hospitality and spirit while experiencing a Victorian Christmas!
Imagine cozy brick walkways, lights twinkling in the trees and on old
fashioned lamp posts. Even our noses were entertained by the many
food and beverage vendors lining the streets! Merchants stayed open
late and their shops were packed with shoppers and folks in Victo-
rian costumes. Carolers and church groups filled the air with holiday
songs, caf6 tables and park benches were full. The Serendipity Inn
(Bed and Breakfast) was wonderful, and I can see this happening
here, can't you? Our county has so much to offer. Help us work
together to improve what we have and ensure our area will keep its
rural-charm while allowing for some well planned growth. We need
to put our heads together and create a package of benefits/reasons
for small businesses and entrepreneurs to open up shop here. This
would mean improved revenue, families needing a progressive place
to live, being able to offer high quality competitive education and
planning for their retirement here.
Call Marti at 674-4519 for details about membership.plans for

"Education and literacy are strongly tied to good health," said
Deputy State Health Officer Bonita Sorensen, M.D., M.B.A. "I
strongly encourage families to incorporate reading into their holiday
plans and celebrations."

the holiday\ s:
*Encourage your child to create bookmarks to enclose in a gift
book or to mark the place in your own book where you leave off
during read-aloud time.
*As.k your child to help \\ ith holiday shopping. Have him or her
write out the list and then read the items aloud as you peruse the
aisles together.
*-Give your child a companion book to traditional holiday gifts
such as a boik on juggling and se\ eral brightly colored balls; a book
about fossils and a bag of plaster of Paris; or a book about stamp
collecting and a stamp album.
*When it is time for holiday baking, ask your child to read the
directions aloud to you. While the cookies are in the'oven, read a
short book together.
*Help our child make his or her own holiday gifts for family and
friends b\ follow ino instructions in a how-to book.
*Ask \our child to help you write out gift name tags.
*Encourage your child to volunteer to read to residents in a local
retirement home or hospital.
*Give a bookstore gift certificate as holiday present so your child
can select a ne\\ book on his or her own. Read the book together.
*Visit the library. andc pick out some holiday favorites for festive

Science teacher Jerrold Muza selected for grant participation

Jerrold Muza, a science teacher at To-
lar K-8 School in Liberty County, was
selected by the district's superintendent
for a unique training opporuniti made
possible by a $25,000 grant from Prog-
ress Energy The timing of this training
is critically important because, in 2006-
2007, student FCAT science scores are
tied to school grades.
"Because science is a field that chang-
es daily due to research, it is important
to stay abreast of new developments,"
said Bienda Crouch, a consultant with
the Panhandle Area Educational Consor-
tium (PAEC). "One of the best ways to
stay current is to attend a national confer-
ence that offers pre-conference institutes
and more than 1,200 concurrent sessions
for science educators. Professional devel-
opment of this caliber is expensive, and
our small, rural districts cannot afford to
pay for teachers to attend the conference
and for travel costs associated with atten-
That is, until now. Muza joins eight
other science teachers from northwest
Florida who will attend the 55th Annual
National Science Teachers As-
sociation National Conference

conference registration and trav-
el costs for one science educator
from northwest Florida school
districts served by Progress En-
ergy -- Gulf, Franklin, Wakulla,
Jefferson, Madison, Taylor, Lib-
ert. Gadsden and Hamilton. As
grant partners, these districts
will pay for travel costs associ-
ated with conference planning
and post-conference activities,
as well as for substitute teachers
during the conference.
The grant's objectives, are:
Expose teachers from low
socio-economic status and rural
areas to current, research-evi-
denced content, pedagogy and
'embedded technology to en-
hance teachers' ability to meet
Florida's educational goal of in-
creasing rigor and relevance in
middle and high school science
Develop a capacity for trans-
feral, sharing and dissemination
of science information to other
students and teachers via online
and broadcast.
Raise academic achievement
of students in areas served by
Progress Energy, statewide, and -
possibly nationally, as teachers
infuse the acquired skills and up-
dated science content knowledge
into their daily practice and share
those skills via broadcast.
"These teachers will develop
lesson plans and provide leader-
ship at the district level to ensure
their new knowledge transfers to
other science teachers and into
the classroom," Mrs. Crouch
added. As a grant partner, PAEC
will coordinate the teachers' pre-
and post-conference activities as
well as administer grant funds.
Videographers from PAEC's -
Florida Education Channel
(FEC) will record teachers dis- E
cussing their lesson plans and
edit these presentations into Il
broadcast-quality productions.

but in the second half St. Joe
dominated completely. Garrett
led the team in scoring with 16

leaves. The true flowers of the
poinsettia are inconspicuous.
They are small, green and yel-
low nubs clustered in the cen-
ters of the bracts.
Poinsettias are considered to
be tropical plants. They prefer
to be in temperatures no colder
than 65F. Plants that have been
exposed to cold temperatures or
windy conditions before they are
brought into the warm indoors
may have reduced quality.
After purchasing your poin-
settia, use a large, roomy shop-
ping bag to protect your plant
when transporting it. When you
arrive home, place the plant in a
warm location free of drafts and
cold air. If possible, place it in an
area where it will receive bright
light. However, avoid placing
plants in extremely sunny, hot,
and dry situations.
Remove the decorative foil
wrapper from the plant's con-
tainer. The poinsettias will need
to be watered periodically. If
the foil wrapper remains on, it
allows water to collect around
the base of the plant, which can
cause root rot. Only water the
plant when the surface of the
soil is dry to the touch. Water
them sufficiently, but not too
much. Most people kill their
poinsettias with too much water.
Remember this plant came from
the tropical desert and is more
tolerant of dry conditions.
If after the holiday season
you want to keep your poinset-
tias, here are a few tips to keep
them healthy and ready to be
planted outside:
*Throughout the winter, keep
the plants somewhat dry and do

not fertilize.
*When spring arrives, cut off
the fading bracts, leaving four
to six inches of the stem.
*Begin fertilizing with a well-
balanced fertilizer.
*Move the plants outdoors to
a partly shady situation.
*After a week or two, plant
the poinsettias in a full-sun lo-
Poinsettias can be planted in
the landscape. However, along
the Gulf Coast, they will be
killed by a frost. If planted in
a warm microclimate and pro-
tected, you may be able to get
your poinsettias to rebloom.
Poinsettias should be planted
in areas where they receive full
sun most of the day and no arti-
ficial light at night. They should
be planted in well-drained, fer-
tile soils. Poinsettias will not
grow well in wet areas. Fertil-
ization, irrigation, and pruning
are. also essential for the grow-
ing success of your poinsettias.
With proper care, your poin-
settias can provide you with
many years of holiday color and

Poinsettias are a symbol of
the season and a sure sign that
the holidays have arrived. With
proper care during this festive
time, the life of the poinsettia
can be extended.
The plant was named after
Joel Poinsett who brought poin-
settias to the United States in
1825 from their native Mexico.
Poinsettias are traditionally
grown as potted plants for use
in the home during the holiday
These holiday plants are not
offered exclusively in red any
longer. Available in a wide va-
riety of colors and forms, poin-
settias can be found with red,
pink, white, orange, purple,
and multi-colored bracts.
Their, colorful bracts are
usually referred to as the flow-
er, but are actually modified

good grades and i am a nice boy.
Andres Mendez

Dear Santa,
This is Tyler. I want to tell you what I
would like for Christmas.
OK, I want a Playstation portable and I
wan tan Xbox 360 and last but not least I
want a PlayStation 3.
I have been a good boy all year long.
I almost forgot please give all the poor
kids in the world some toys. They will thank
you for as long as they live.
Tyler Owens

Dear Santa,
I would like a PlayStation 2 for Christmas.
The next thing I would like is a video game
called 'Bully. The last thing I would want. for
Christmas is a poster of Eminem.
I feel I deserve these gifts because I have
helped others and been a nice girl.
Mary Baskins

Dear Santa,
I need an airplane that's called a war hog
so I'll leave my parents alone so they can
have some peace. I think I deserve this so I
can share it with my friends.
Jarrett Bennett

Dear Santa,
I hope you bring me every thing I ask for
like a riffle. This is because I would like to
practice my shooting. Next I would like a
new game boy, because my other one broke.
The last thing I want is a PlayStation 2, be-
cause I have never had one and I think it
would be fun.
I think I deserve these toys because I have
done well in school and been nice to every-
Ryan Rogers

Dear Santa,
The three things that I want this Christ-
mas are a RoboRapter toy, RoboGuy toy and
a sky hog airplane. The reasons why I need
these things are they are big and fun to play
I feel I deserve these because I help out
with my family and I make good grades.

KISS participants attend annual banquet

put on by Calhoun Sheriff's Department
Members of the Calhoun County Sheriff's Department gathered last week to host their annual
banquet honoring some special people the community's senior citizen population. These
citizens take part in the department's Keeping Independent Seniors Safe program, known as
KISS. Each deputy is assigned several seniors to keep in touch with and they drop by their
homes regularly to make sure they're doing well. The program creates a strong link the sheriff's
department and citizens they might not normally see during their routine duties. ABOVE:

"For unto us a child is born" Isaiah 9:6
To my Patients and Friends,
Warm Christmas greetings from Blountstown! As we pre-
pare to celebrate the birth of the Christ child, God's greatest
gift to us, may we find a moment away from the hustle and
bustle of holiday shopping and wrapping, to get alone and
present the Lord with a" love gift" of our time. Time to be still
and know that He is God. Time to reflect on the valleys He's
brought us through this year; the mountain tops some have
experienced, and to thank Him for His grace and mercies
that are new each morning. I believe this expression of our
love would please Him more than anything we could give.
He is worthy of our praise and thanksgiving and ... our time.
After all, it is "JESUS' birthday".
We wish you and your loved ones a Merry
Christmas and every blessing in the New Year.
