Car accident claims


life of Bristol woman


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor __
The Florida Highway Patrol says a
Liberty County woman who died in a car
crash last week suffered some kind of
"medical episode" before losing control
of her vehicle.
Shevonca Sherice Daughtrey, 35,
of Bristol was pronounced dead at the
scene after her 1998 Chevrolet Malibu
went off County Road 1641 (also known
as Torreya Park Road) around 10:15
a.m. Thursday, according to FHP Cpl.
Herbert Brown.
Front seat passenger Josie Maria
Kilby, 34, of Blountstown suffered head
and back injuries and was airlifted to
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.
Daughtrey's brother, Shadrick Daughtrey, 34, was
sitting in the back seat and escaped with minor injuries.
He was taken to the emergency room at Calhoun
Liberty Hospital, where he was treated and released.
According to the FHP report, Daughtrey was
traveling south when her car went onto the east


shoulder and overturned several
times. She was partially ejected. Her
passengers crawled out of the wreckage
by .knocking out the back window.
No one in the vehicle was wearing
a seatbelt, according to the accident
report.
The trooper said the driver and her
brother had picked up Kilby from
work and were taking her to her home
in Blountstown when the accident
happened.
Daughtrey's brother told the trooper
that his sister "had suffered seizures in
the past."
Shevonca Daughtrey is survived by
her parents, step-parents, siblings, her daughter and a
special friend, Roderick Sanders.
Services are planned for 3 p.m. Friday at Veterans
Memorial Park Civic Center in Bristol. Visitation with
family and friends will be held at the same location on
Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m.
Her complete obituary appears inside on page IS

Driver admits

to 6 shots of

tequila before

car accident
by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
A Blountstown woman who admitted she*
had six shots of tequila two hours earlier was
charged with DUI after she ran off State Road 69,
approximately one mile south of County Road 286
shortly after 6 a.m. Thursday.
FHP Trooper Wes Harsey arrived at the scene
to find a 2000 Daewoo four-door sitting in the
east ditch with a dented hood and bent fender. The
front bumper was on the ground behind the car.
The driver, identified as 21-year-old Terra
Danielle Lindsey, said she was on her way home
from Grand Ridge when she fell asleep and ran
onto the grass shoulder of the road. She said she
awoke and steered to the left to try to return to
her lane, but the car traveled across the road and
went down into the east ditch.
When asked where she was coming from,
Lindsey said she was returning from work at the
Apalachicola Forest YouthCamp. Harsey replied
that he had formerly worked at the youth camp
and reminded her it was located in Wilma, not
Grand Ridge.
She then replied that she left the camp the
night before and went to party at a Grand Ridge
residence.
The trooper noted the strong odor of an
alcoholic beverage on her breath and asked if she
had been drinking. She said she had "about six
shots of Jose Cuervo" a couple of hours earlier.
She consented to a roadside sobriety test but
was unable to maintain her balance to complete
the exercises, according to the trooper's report.
Her blood-alcohol level was found to be .142
percent and .153 percent in two breath tests. The
legal limit in Florida is .08 percent.
She was taken to the Calhoun County Jail and
her car was impounded.

report from the Blountstown
Police Department.
Danielle R. Hyatt, 30, was
charged with petty theft Sunday
after she admitted to officers that
she had taken a metal box that
held $200. She said she took the
money and tossed the metal box
out as she drove across Trammell
Bridge. Officers later recovered
the empty box on the bridge.
Officers suspected Hyatt after
examining the scene, where
they found a computer monitor
knocked off a desk and papers
strewn around the room but
no evidence of a break-in. The
blinds on the window had moved
as though someone had broken
in through the window, but
dust on the ledge had been left
undisturbed and no fingerprints
were found.

Wife charged with
hitting husband
with machete
A Calhoun County woman
was arrested for aggravated
assault after she reportedly hit her
husband in the neck with the dull
side of a machete.
A Feb. 12 argument between
Thomas and Geanna Hitt escalated
after he refused her demand to
leave their home, according to a
deputy's report.
Geanna Hitt was enraged when
he refused to leave and swung a
machete at her husband, leaving
an abrasion at the base of his
neck.
She stated that her husband
should have left at her request
since she is partially disabled.
She said before she struck him,
he had kicked her and forced her
out of the home.
The altercation was witnessed
by a child who told a deputy about
the altercation and said the woman
had not been harmed before she
attacked her husband.


Dad charged with displaying

gun while reprimanding child
A Blountstown man was charged with child abuse after his ex-wife
reported that he frightened their young son by holding a gun during
a recent discussion over school grades.
While reprimanding his son, Kevin Lee Parrish took a handgun
from a gun cabinet and held it while asking the boy what he should
do to keep him from lying after learning that he had not told the
truth about doing a homework assignment, according to a deputy's
report.
Parrish denied taking the gun out during the argument.
The boy and a sibling later told a investigator with the Department
of Children and Families that their father had asked them to lie about
the incident.
In addition to the child abuse charge, the report stated that he would
also be charged with improper exhibition of a firearm.

Three juveniles, one adult arrested
on grand theft and burglary charges
Three juveniles and a 21-year-old are facing charges following an
investigation by the Blountstown Police Department of residential
Burglaries.
A warrant has been issued for Jeremy Pouncey for armed burglary
and grand theft. Three juveniles have been charged with grand theft
and burglary.
One of the juveniles was also charged with armed burglary after he
admitted he was with Pouncey when they broke into a Juniper Street
residence several weeks ago and took two guns. The teenager said
he still had a double barrel shotgun he found at the home and stated
Pouncey was in possession of a .38 pistol stolen at the same time,
according to the police report.
The first burglary happened around the first week of December
2007; the most recent burglaries were said to have occurred between
Feb. 6 and 10.
Two firearms, along with a pellet gun were taken in the first

Altha man clocked at 95 mph

charged with DUI, speeding


by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor
An Altha man who was
stopped after a trooper's radar
showed he was traveling at twice
the speed limit was arrested
after it was learned he had been
drinking and was driving with a
suspended license.
FHP Trooper Wes Harsey
was patrolling County Road
274 around 7:30 p.m. Monday
when he noticed a black Ford
pickup traveling east at a high
rate of speed. His radar showed
the truck was traveling 95 mph
in a 45 mph area.
When the truck entered a
35 mph zone in a curve, the
driver's speed dropped down
to 85 mph, according to the
trooper's report.
After activating his patrol
lights to alert the driver to
pull over, the truck came to a
complete stop in the middle of a
dirt road known as D.L. Barfield
Road.
Behind the wheel was 47-year-
old Lester Eugene Brown, who


had three passengers, including
his son. As he spoke with Brown,
the trooper noticed his breath
smelled strongly of an alcoholic
beverage.
Brown told the trooper he was
only a mile from home and asked
if he would give him a break.
Harsey asked how much he
had to drink that evening.
"I had one beer," Brown
replied. When the trooper asked
how big the beer was, Brown
responded, "OK, maybe I had
two drinks at a friend's house a
while ago."
When asked if he would
perform some roadside sobriety
exercises to determine his level
of intoxication, Brown agreed,
stated, "Brother, I ain't drunk
but I'll do 'em."
The trooper asked if Brown
had any physical problems that
would prevent him from doing
the exercises, Brown replied he
had a bad right knee. He then
unbuckled his belt and started
to take down his pants to show

his bad knee. Harsey told him to
keep his pants on.
After unsuccessfully
attempting to walk in a straight
line, stand on one leg and count,
Brown gave up and told Harsey,
"Go ahead and lock me up. I
know you think I'm drunk."
Brown was told he was under
arrest and ordered to put his
hands behind his back and was
handcuffed. He was placed in the
backseat of a patrol car.
His passengers were removed
from the truck and searched for
weapons. A gutting knife was
taken from the belt of one of the
rear seat passengers and later
returned.
An empty bottle of Jim Beam
whiskey was found in the truck.
One of the passengers said it was
Brown's.
During the vehicle search,
Brown jumped out of the
patrol car and began running
north down the dirt road. He
was stopped after a short foot
pursuit.
When brought back to the
patrol car, Brown became
combative and tried to kick the
trooper. At that point, Brown
was put on the ground and told
to calm down.
Brown remained combative
and rolled back and fourth on
the ground in an attempt to
break free, yelling numerous
obscenities. He asked the trooper
if he "felt good roughing up an
old man in front of his son" as he
continued to kick his legs, trying
to break free of the trooper, who
was holding him down with
his knee on his back waiting
for back-up from the sheriff's
department.
When three deputies arrived,
Brown was put in a caged patrol
car with a leg constraint strap.
At the county jail, Brown
took a breath test which showed
his alcohol level at .153 percent
in the first test. The second
attempt resulted in a reading of
.155 percent. The legal limit in
Florida is .08 percent.
After being told the results of
the test, Brown replied, "Well,
I guess there's a first time for
everything."
When the trooper asked why
he ran from him, Brown stated
that he had a three-year-old
daughter and "hadn't spent a
night away from her since she
was born." He said he was "at
least gonna try to sneak away
or get a jump on 'ya when you
weren't looking."
Brown was also charged with
speeding, possession of an open
alcoholic container and resisting
arrest.
The truck he was driving,
which is registered to Jerry
Wilson, was impounded.

A Republican friend of mine who
is to the right of Attila the Hun in
his political views sent me an e-mail
ribbing me about the apparent col-
lapse of Hillary Clinton's presiden-
tial campaign. He also made snide
remarks about Obama's middle
name, Hussein.
He and I were office mates at one


time, and I have heard his right-wing rhetoric be-
fore so his e-mail was no surprise. As always, I
reminded him that this is America, and he can be-
lieve whatever he wants to believe. OK by me.
As the presidential campaigns have droned on,
the rhetoric from both sides has become shrill and
empty. I've stopped watching both Democratic
and Republican campaign speeches. They are pre-
dictable. Both sides promise whatever they think
that voters want. FactCheck.org does a good job
of debunking political exaggerations from both
sides.
Whoever wins the presidency will be faced
with formidable problems. For voters, the econ-
omy is at the top of the list of concerns. Whether


the economy is technically in a
recession or not isn't the issue. If
people lose their confidence in the
economy and perceive themselves
to be in a recession, they then
spend less which tends to bring
about a real recession. Consum-
er confidence is a key factor in a
healthy economy.


Along with the economy, the war in Iraq and
Afghanistan will be front and center for the new
president. Most Americans want a resolution to
this issue; however, some people, primarily on the
political right, want to win the war. In my view,
winning in the traditional sense of completely
subduing the enemy in WWII style is not in the
cards. The reason is that the U.S. military force
isn't large enough to completely control the popu-
lation. Military planners estimated that it would
take a military force of approximately 500,000 to
do the job.
The U.S. military is attempting to broker a
peace settlement between traditional enemies,
the Sunnis and the Shiites. The two ethnic groups
have moved to separate parts of town which has
reduced the violence. The U.S. military cut a deal
with the Sunnis to work together against al Qae-
da terrorists which has been a successful effort.
But most observers believe that if the U.S. de-
parts the Sunnis and Shiites will be at it again. An
Army sergeant summed the Sunni/U.S. operation
by saying, "We are just paying the Sunnis not to
kill us." But any military success in Iraq or Af-
ghanistan is welcome. The new president and the
American people will have to decide how long
U.S. troops stay in Iraq and Afghanistan all the
while burning $2B per week in borrowed mon-
ey.
The Bush administration has stressed the coun-
try as no other has. The country needs a new team
in Washington, either Republican or Democrat,
that will seek sensible domestic and foreign pol-
icy solutions.
America needs a time out, a chance to take a
deep breath and collect its wits.

HIDDEN

HUSBANDS LOVE
YOUR WIVES
Text: Ephesians 5:25
"Johnny," said the grammar teach-
er, "please tell me what is it when I
say, I love, you love, he loves."
"Well," replied Johnny, "that's
one of those deals where somebody's
gonna get shot."
What is love? Different words for
love in the language of the NT are:
eros or erotic love; philos or broth-
erly love; and agape' or the love of
God. Agape' is true love.
Agape' love is the sacrificial love
that Jesus Christ had when He cried,
"Father, forgive them, for they do not
know what they are doing" even as
the soldiers were nailing Him to the
cross between two wicked thieves.
Agape' love is what Christ had when
He was born in a barn and slept in
a feed trough though He created the
world and this universe. It is the love
Christ had when He became sin for
us and died a cruel, humiliating death
that was reserved only for the very
worst of criminals. It is the love of
Christ that put His people, the church.
ahead of Himself even-to the point of
humiliation, suffering, and death.
And the scripture says that hus-
bands are to love or agape' their
wives. If that were not clear enough,
Paul adds. "as Christ loved the
Church and gave Himself up for
her." Anyone can love with the kind
of self-gratifying love that Johnny
knew. The Spirit-filled believer is the
only one who can love with the agape'
love of Christ. Maybe that is why we
have so many problems with submis-
sion today. Maybe we simply don't
see the sacrificial love of Christ that
makes submission possible. Yet sub-
mission and sacrificial love should be
characteristics of every Spirit-filled
believer, especially in the husband/
wife relationship.

burglary, along with a number of
miscellaneous items including
jewelry and cologne.
While investigating the
theft of a golf cart taken from
a Magnolia Avenue residence
and later abandoned, officers
found two bicycles hidden in the
bushes across from Paramore's
Restaurant on Chipola Road.
Officers believed the bikes may
have been left behind after the
golf cart was taken from under
a shed and tracked down one of
the juveniles involved in taking
the golf cart from the residence
of Jon Plummer.
Officers interviewed the
suspect, who stated that he and
two other juveniles were riding
their bikes when they decided
to steal the golf cart. They left
the bikes in the bushes and took
the cart out of the shed, pushing
it down the road for a couple of
blocks before getting tired and
abandoning it.
The three then walked to the
Juniper Street residence owned
by Aaron Everett and went
inside after breaking a window.
The boys took several watches,
necklaces, bracelets and a bottle
of cologne.
The second and third juvenile
also admitted to the thefts.
The police department is


waiting on lab results from
fingerprint evidence found at
another burglary that happened
in the same time frame. Police
suspect that the same juveniles


were also involved in that one.
Anyone with information on
these, or any crimes, is urged
contact the Blountstown Police
Department at 674-5987.


Blountstown traffic stop

leads to marijuana arrest

and discovery of $2,070
A 21-year-old driver found to be traveling 20 miles over the speed
limit as he passed through Blountstown around 11 p.m. Friday was
taken in on more serious charges after a deputy noticed the strong
smell of burning marijuana coming from the interior of his vehicle.
A radar check showed the vehicle was traveling 65 mph in a 45
mph zone. Deputy Bliss Moreau also noticed that the driver swerved
across the white line and his tag light was inoperable.
The vehicle was stopped at the Quick Pic parking lot. As the deputy
approached the vehicle, it appeared to him that the driver was trying
to reach into the passenger's floor compartment.
The driver identified as Olajuwon Jamaal Waldron was issued
a written warning. Both he and his passenger, a 23-year-old woman,
were asked to step out of the vehicle.
The deputy noticed Waldron, the driver, appeared to have something
in his jacket pocket and asked to perform a pat down search. "Waldron
instantly became belligerent and argumentative. He placed himself
in a defensive posture and became very uncooperative," according
to the deputy's report.
Waldron then stood in front of the patrol car with his hands out,
allowing the deputy to pat him down. Inside his jacket pocket the
deputy found a large amount of cash, later found to total $2,070.

The deputy then stated that due
to the strong marijuana odor, he
was going to search the vehicle.
At that point, Waldron became
upset and told him, "You can't do
that!" and told the deputy "Call
your supervisor."
During a search of the
vehicle, Moreau found what
he described as "an abundant
amount of marijuana shake" in
the floorboard. He then found two
clear plastic bags of marijuana.
The smaller bag, which was in
plain view, held less than 20
grams of marijuana. A second
bag was pulled from underneath
the passenger's seat. It held
approximately 22 grams.
Waldron was charged with
possession of more than 20 grams
of marijuana and possession of
drug paraphernalia.

New program at Bristol Youth Academy gives students


job experience in.carpentry and facility maintenance


from Bristol Youth Academy
The Bristol Youth Academy is a state-
operated, moderate risk, residential
treatment center for males. The stated
goal of the Bristol Youth Academy is to
rehabilitate its young residents in order for
them to eventually return to the community
as productive members of society.
BYA is now housing a new program,
Home Builders Institute (HBI), the
workforce and development arm of the
National Association of Home Builders.
Each resident is offered the opportunity
to receive job training in the carpentry or
facility maintenance trade.
Home Builders Institute has been
Housed at the BYA since September of
2007 and has promising goals designed to
benefit the community and the residents.
The program will train 40 students
annually, 20 students in each of the trades
being taught. Mike Shierling is the Project
Coordinator for HBI and is looking
forward to implementing the program's
goal of training the boys to be qualified


To help fulfill our goals for these youth we

need assistance from the community to identify

service projects that would not only benefit the

community but would also allow the youth to

improve upon their carpentry skills, social skills

and work ethic.


for gainful employment in the construction
industry.
The specific HBI program to be offered
at BYA is Project CRAFT (Community
Restitution, Apprenticeship-Focused
Training), which has been recognized by
the U.S. Congress for its goal to empower
youth through education, life-long career
building skills, and employment in the
nation's home building industry.
The students must first apply to be
part of the HBI program and then have to
follow a process in order to be admitted.

Each boy is recommended by referral,
must be suitable for vocational training,
and receives training for six months,
usually towards the end of their time at
BYA.
The students receive four hours per day
of vocational training in their specific trade
with HBI instructors; the remaining part
of their day is spent in academic training
working towards their high school diploma
or GED from the Liberty County School
program at BYA.
Through the HBI training program,
the boys learn employability and safety
skills, and when they meet the curriculum
for their trade, the students earn a Pre-
Apprenticeship Certification from the
National Association of Home Builders.
HBI also follows up on its graduate
students for six months, and helps them to
find a job and enrollment in a school. HBI's
entry-level graduates earn an average
$8.50 to $12.50 an hour on their first job
after graduation.


Out of over 300 residential facilities in
Florida, only five house Home Builders
Institute programs. All of the programs in
North Florida have been established for
less than one year.
The slogan of the BYA/HBI program is
"Building Tomorrow's Future Today." This
very appropriate slogan is displayed on the
back of the students' uniform t-shirts.
Bristol Youth Academy sees HBI as an
invaluable opportunity for youth to learn
skills that will be essential to a successful
transition back into their communities as
productive, law abiding citizens.
To help fulfill our goals for these youth
we need assistance from the community
to identify community service projects
that would not only benefit the community
but would also allow the youth to improve
upon their carpentry skills, social skills
and work ethic.
For many of our youth the opportunity
and feeling of giving back to the community
versus taking from the community is life
changing.
We welcome your referrals for projects
related to the youth's training where the
students can provide free labor. We can
do projects on or off site. However, in
order for HBI to construct the community
projects the material needed must be
provided or donated.
If you or your business fias a project and
or would like to donate lumber or other
building materials, please contact Mike
Shierling at 850-200-3273.

Poker Run raises $2,400 for


8th grade class trip

The Liberty County Sheriffs' office and the ArchAngels
motorcycle group staged the 4th annual Ride for the Kids
Poker Run under sunny skies and warm breezes on Satur-
day. Seventy-eight motorcyclists registered for the event,
with most carrying passengers including two miniature
Chihuahuas that rode in comfort in a tote bag. The poker
run raised $2,400, which will go pay some of the expenses
for the eighth grade class trip to Washington D.C.
The ride wound through the scenic country side of Lib-
erty County and ended at Veterans Memorial Civic Center
in Bristol, where lunch was served to all. Door prizes were
awarded and a 50/50 drawing was held. Afterwards, every-
one was entertained by a bike rodeo which tests the riding
skills of all who dared.
Robert Hill and Major Donnie Conyers provided chicken
pileau for the hungry riders.
This year's event was dedicated to the late Capt .Charles
R. Morris, who served as a victims' advocate with the Lib-
erty County Sheriff's Office. Brother Charles was the power

PERRY, FEB.
14-The double play is '.
known as the pitcher's ,
best friend.
A game-ending
double play against
Taylor County became
the varsity Wildcats' by Jim
very best friend last conti
Thursday night. sport
With Altha holding
onto a 2-1 lead going into the
bottom of the seventh inning,
Taylor County's Greg Flowers
hit a one-out blooper over the
Wildcats' shortstop, Keith
Kirkpatrick. That brought the
lead-off batter, Ethan Young, to
the plate. He took the first offering
from the Wildcat's hurler, Tad
-Scott, and ripped a grass-burner
back to Kirkpatrick. Kirkpatrick
scooped and shoveled the ball to
Josh McIntosh -at second base.
McIntosh stepped on second to
force out Flowers, wheeled, and
threw a strike to Ethan Byler at first
base to complete the double play.
That play secured the Wildcats'
(1-0; 0-0, 2-2A) first win of the


regular season over
the Bulldogs (0-1; 0-0,
3-3A). ,


"I was very pleased
with our defensive
effort tonight (the
Wildcats committed
only one error) and
the way that we ran
the bases" commented
an elated Wildcats'


skipper, Arthur Faurot. "But we
were fortunate to win the game
with only two hits. We looked
at too many third strikes tonight.
From now on we've got to do
a better job of selecting pitches
to hit."
Taylor County took a 1-0 lead
in the first inning.
Through three innings the
Bulldogs were pitching a shutout.
Only the Wildcat's Noah Byler
had reached base and that was
on a walk.
But in the fourth inning with
one out, Altha's Josh Mcltosh
began breaking up the no-no.
He singled through the right

,-


prun ng i n
program for
your young
trees.
Research
conducted at the
University of
Florida clearly
indicates that
a preventive
pruning
program can
help minimize
the risks of tree Co-
defects and dominant
the subsequent ,
, 1 trunks
damage poorly
structured trees
can cause to ..
property and to -:
people. -
First it's important to
understand the components of
good tree structure. There are
three basic things to look for in
evaluating a tree's structure: a
single dominant leader, strong
branch unions without bark
inclusions and a balanced
canopy.
Good tree structure starts
early with a single trunk and
properly spaced branches
arranged around the trunk like
the spokes of a wheel. Trouble
begins when trees grow what
are called co-dominant stems.
These are stems or trunks that
grow from the same point and
produce V-shaped connections.
Bark (called included bark) is
pinched between the stems
giving the appearance of a
connection. However, the
connection between these
two stems is weak at best and
there is no strong physical
bond. As the stems grow, they
actually push each other apart,
and a crack may develop. A
good wind storm can cause
one or both of these stems to
break off. Early correction of
these co-dominant stems and
encouragement of U-shaped
branch connections with good
structural attachments will
eliminate this problem.
In addition to branch
structural problems, a
tree's canopy can become
unbalanced. An unbalanced
canopy occurs when one side
of the tree canopy is much
heavier than the other or when
most of the canopy weight is
at the tips of the branches.
This can happen from
improper pruning practices
that remove foliage on the
lower and interior parts of
the tree. More growth occurs
at the tips of the tree making
it taller and wider. Often
called "lion-tailed" trees due
to the branches resembling
a long bare tail with a tuft at


the end, these trees have all
of the leaves growing at the
tips of the branches which
easily break in wind storms.
In addition, after this improper
pruning practice occurs, many
new sprouts develop with poor
connections to the branch.
Structural pruning should
be practiced for the first 15 to
25 years of a tree's life. This
is the amount of time required
to establish strong structure
in the canopy and will help to
make the tree more resistant to
storm damage.
Although we are typically
concerned with aesthetics,
the appearance of.the tree
should be secondary to health
and structural concerns. The
single greatest structural
concern is the large number
of co-dominant trunks or main
leaders.
So do not ignore your young
trees. They need to be trained
and pruned to have a strong
structure. However, pruning
is a double-edged sword, either
helping or hurting according to
if, where, when, how, and why
it is applied. When properly
executed, a variety of benefits
can occur.
So if you have planted a tree
recently, take the time to learn
about developing a preventive
pruning program. Information
is available online from the
University of Florida at http://
hort.ifas.ufl.edu/woody/
pruning.html. For additional
information, contact your local

you have to own up to your choices.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
Libra, it's time to open up the curtains

afraid of the change, but the stars in-
dicate the timing is right.
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
Scorpio, you're about to be thrust
into a position that you really weren't
ready for. Put on your game face and
lead everyone to think you've got it
covered. The rest will fall in place.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21
Loose lips certainly sink ships, and
with the way you've been gossiping,
Sagittarius, you're taking down an
entire fleet. Zip up this week or you'll
lose some respect.

Aquarius, with all of the wrenches that

Noah Byler loaded the bases
after he was issued his second of
three walks. Ethan Byler jacked
a 2-2 pitch to right field that the
Bulldogs' right fielder mishandled
and that allowed McIntosh to
score. Then Cale Chafin lifted a
sacrifice fly to right field to bring
home Scott and gave the Wildcats
a 2-1 lead.
However, Taylor County
threatened to take back the lead
when they loaded the bases in the
bottom of the fourth inning. But
that was extinguished when the

Tad Scott picked up his first
complete game win of the season
with a 94-pitch affair. He induced
13 ground-outs, struck out 8
batters, allowed 5 hits, and he
issued 3 walks.

Scott and, a fumbled ball by the
leftfielder, allowed Alejos to cross
the dish. Cale Chafin gave the
Wildcats a 4-0 lead with his single
to centerfield that scored Ethan.
Altha put up one more run in
the third inning. Ethan Byler
drew a two-out walk and Cale
Chafin doubled to centerfield to
plate Ethan.
Josh Mclntosh led off the fifth
inning by toasting the centerfielder
with a hummer over his head and
into right centerfield. With one
out Noah Byler was awarded first
base after being hit by a pitch,
moving Mclntosh to second. A
wild pitch enabled McIntosh to
advance to third and Noah moved
to second. Next, Ethan Byler
slapped a single to left centerfield,
scoring McIntosh and Noah. An
error by the leftfielder allowed
the ball to roll all the way to the
fence and Ethan stopped at third
base. Gary Chew brought Ethan

home when he clubbed a single
into centerfield.
In the bottom of the seventh
inning, Keith Kirkpatrick led off
with a single to left field. Josh
McIntosh moved Kirkpatrick to
second base with a single to left
centerfield. The bases were full
of Wildcats after Tad Scott was
issued a walk. Then Noah Byler
walked to bring home Kirkpatrick
to give Altha their first shutout of
the season, 8-0.
After the game, head coach
Arthur Faurot commented on his
team's performance. "We hit the
ball good tonight but we've got
some tough opponents coming
up-Aucilla and Wewa. If we
don't do a better job of hitting,
we're going to be in trouble."
On this night right-handed
Wildcats' pitcher Keith Kirkpatrick
(1-0) had command of the strike
zone, whiffing 11 Bobcats. In 95
pitches he issued only 3 walks and
allowed only 3 hits.
As a team Altha had 12 hits,
3 walks, 7 strikeouts, and left 7
men on base.
Individually, the Wildcats were
led by junior Ethan Byler who
went 2 for 2 at the plate, scored
3 runs, and had 4 runs batted in
(RBI) to his credit. Both Tony
Golden and Josh Warner had hits
with Golden picking up his first
double of the season. Noah Byler
went 1 for 2, scored a run, and
picked up a RBI. Cale Chafin and
Josh McIntosh both were 2 for 4
on the night. Chafin was credited
with 2 RBIs. McIntosh scored a
run and he hit his first double of
the season. Both Gary Chew and
Tad Scott were 1 for 3. Chew
picked up a RBI and he stole a
base while Scott scored a run.
Keith Kirkpatrick helped his own
cause by going 1 for 4, scoring a
run and stealing a base.
These varsity Wildcats were
back in action this past Monday
and Tuesday (check next week's
paper for game details) when they
hosted the East Gadsden Jaguars
(2-4A) and the Aucilla Christian
Warriors (3-1A), respectively.
This Saturday they'll travel
down SR 71 to take on the Wewa
Gators (3-2A) with action getting
underway at 5:30 p.m. (CT).
Brookwood Christian School (2A)
ofThomasville, GA comes to The
Cotton Patch this Tuesday for a

for all of you again this week!!!
