Christina said she tried but couldn't put the fire out. "I

what to do," she said of handing one of the youngest
kids to her seveil-year-old. D.J. grabbed the two sleeping
youngsters -while she gathered up Justin and Shyanne.
They all made it outside safely.
She said the older kids, who attend Hosford School, had
just learned the "Stop, Drop and Roll", drill in school.
When she later asked him how the curtains caught fire,
Justin told his mother, "Spiderman did it."
The family is now staying with Samantha McCalvin
in Altha. The two oldest, Justin and D.J., live with their
father in Hosford during the week and stay at their
mother's on weekends.
Samantha, who works with the Helping Hands

A Calhoun County woman and the
two grandchildren she is raising are
staying with a relative after their home -
burned Saturday night.
Firefighters said it appeared that the
blaze started in the fireplace. ,
Nancy Holt lived with her two
grandchildren, six-year-old Olivia and 8~
Michael, who jttst turned 13, in a home .
behind Abe Springs Baptist Church at
13847 SW County Road 275.
She was checking the winning lottery
numbers on her computer around 10:30 .
p.m. Nov. 22 when the house began
filling up with smoke. "Smoke was
boiling out of the walls around the
chimney," she said.
She and a friend who was visiting
awakened Olivia and took her outside.
Michael was staying at his uncle's that .
After they got outside safely, Nancy
lost sight of Olivia, but soon realized
she had gone back inside the burning home. A Calhoun
County sheriff's deputy went in after her and brought the
youngster back to safety, she said.
Nancy said her friends and co-workers at Parthenon

My earliest memories of Granny are of spend-
ing the night at her house and awakening before
daylight to the wonderful smells of coffee and
bacon on the stove. Her house was always full
of fun, laughter and pranks. We knew the rules
growing up and we obeyed them. I don't believe
I ever got a whipping from her, although I can't
say the same for others. She always had more
to give than what she had and more love to go
She taught me a lot of lessons. I learned how
to hold a hook between my thumb and forefinger,
bend a cane pole, let go at just the right moment
and zing a fishing line under a limb and into the
perfect fishing spot. She taught me how to make
biscuits and fry chicken. How to brown the flour
until you're sure it's going to burn before you
add water to make the best gravy in the: world.
She taught me that no matter how many un-
expected people show up at dinnertime, there's
always enough. In watching her, I learned to eat
last to ensure everyone got enough. Feed your
children first, then yourself. And no matter what,
Granddaddy married a kid and helped raise
her. They loved each other deeply and had five
children; 4 boys and a girl.
Irene Mayo has lived her whole life in the
Clarksville area. There she helped in one way
or another to raise a goodly number of chil-
dren; be they her own or someone else's who
just needed some love shown to them. My
Grandfather worked out of town every week
which must have been tough on my Granny.
They never had extra money for the fr-ivolous
things in life, but nobody left her house hungry
or not feeling loved.
I have always admired her sense of respon-
sibility. She has never shirked a chore or done
one halfway. "Do it right the first time" and
"There's pleasure to be had in a job well done"
are mottos my Grandmother lives by. She
could hoe a field of butt'erbeans, have every
meal cooked on time, clothes washed and put
away, house cleaned, and still always had time
to go fishing with Mrs. Lucille.
Those two ladies fished every fishing hole
that existed between the Park on Highway 20
Creek. Back when you could rent a boat, they

always feed the stray cat at your door. Just don't let anyone catch
you doing it.
She instilled in my mother a sense of family and responsibil-
ity. They both instilled the same in me.
My grandmother, Margaret "Irene" Pitts Mayo, was born on
March 20, 1918, in Calhoun County, Florida to Alice Roberts
Pitts and William "Bill John" Pitts. She was the fourth of what
would be seven children. Irene experienced the pain of losing a
loved one early in life when her mother died shortly after giving
birth to her seventh baby, Katherine. My grandmother was only
eight years old. Faced with raising seven children on his own, her
father gave the baby to his sister Sarah. With her mother gone,
Granny, along with the other children took on the chores needed
to run a household. At nine years old, she would stand in a chair
cooking meals for her family over a wood-burning stove.
Her father remarried a year after her mother died. The woman
he chose was neither soft nor kind-hearted. My Grandmother's
memories of this time were unpleasant and hard. However, a
few years later, fate intervened when Bill John's sister, Sarah
petitioned a judge for custody of Irene. God's mercy placed my
Granny in a loving home once more.
It was while living with Sarah that Irene met Neal Mayo. Sar-
ah had married Neal's older brother, John. On March 30, 1934
Neal and Irene were married. She was only 16 years old when
they married but the judge was told different. It was a little white
lie that began a marriage of 61 years. Granny once told me that
fished Mrs. Maudie's and all the sloughs in between. Granny
could always outfish Granddaddy, which was a sore spot with
Life was not all a bed of roses but my Granny is a woman
who has persevered through many a troubling time. My grand-
parents lost their second child very unexpectedly in 1987 when
my Uncle Hulon was shot and killed. Holding fast to her faith
in God, Granny persevered through her sadness and grief. In
1995 God called my Grandfather home. She still misses him
terribly, but remembers him fondly. Granny took another blow
when her only daughter, my mother, died of cancer in 2007.
Though each loss was heart wrenching, she has come through
them all a little stronger and still tough as nails. She is the
epitome of the tree that bends in the strong winds. And through
it will bend until you think it surely will break, somehow, it
My Granny is an inspiration to me. She has never been a
woman to back down from anything or anyone. She has done
more than her share of jobs right the first time and could out-
cook anyone I've ever come across.
I've come to know my Granny much better after my mother
passed away. We sit and talk for hours. I love to listen to her
stories of times long ago. It saddens me to think of what little
time we have here on earth and of those that have gone on be-
fore us. I can only imagine the untold treasures that await this
wonderful, Godly woman.
This is one in a series of stories submitted for the upcoming Calhoun County Heritage Book.

The "no-shining rule" is in
place on Tate's Hell and the

General gun season hunting

requires that legal buck deer must

to be at least 1 inch long, and the
antler has to be a minimum of 5
inches long. -
Under the second rule, no one
can shine or look for deer from
midnight until 30 minutes before

mood this week. If you dig deep
enough you'll discover just what
it is that has put you in such
a foul mood
LEO -Jul 3Au23/u23
Leo, make some time to be
alone. Find a spot that is free of
distraction and any interruptions
and meditate on the big issues in
your life. It will offer clarity.
VIRGO -Aug 24/Sept 22
Virgo, when others have lost their
faith in your abilities, you just
have to wow them with something
extra-special. They'll come
around after this reminder-

Libra, it will take a lot o$1eading
on your Part, but after that a
difficult person will come over to
your side. The victory will be

SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
You have some soul-searching to
do, Scorpio, as things just don't
seem to be working as you had
planned. Maybe you're simply
expecting too much and should be
happy with what you have.
SA;GITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21
Sagittarius, stop beating around
the bush and say what's on your

Whatever the relationship you had
hoped to start, now is your time

blocks on your path to success. So
why not start up that car and get

html) in the summer of2008, has
been cast on the ABC daytime
drama "All My Children" in the
role of Brot Monroe.
"We are honored and delighted
to welcome JR Martinez to the
cast of 'All My Children,'" said
the show's executive producer
Julie Hanan Carruthers. "JR
represents the best of the human
spirit. His commitment to help
his fellow servicemen and
women and their families has'
inspired us all. JR's challenging
journey and resilience will bring
a uniquely authentic perspective
to the role of Brot Monroe."
In the background of the
"All My Children" plotline,
Martinez's character had served
in the U.S. Army in Iraq, where
he fell in love with Lt. Taylor
Thompson (played by Beth
Ehlers). After being severely
wounded in combat, ~Brot made
the decision to allow Taylor to
believe he had died, not wanting
to subject her to the reality of
his injuries. Following many
surgeries and recovery, Brot
returns to fmd his fiance, who
has been grieving her loss, not
knowing he is still alive.
The fictional character was
based in part on Martinez's own
experiences in Iraq. Two months
after his deployment in February
2003, the Humvee he was
driving struck a landmine. With
40 percent of his body severely
burned, Martinez underwent 32
surgeries and spent 34 months in
Martinez itttended Florida
Bootcamp for Veterans with
Disabilities last summer with the
idea of marketing his image and
his story as a public persona.
He credits the program with
providing him with the skills
and confidence he needed to
succeed. "The boot camp helped
me stay focused on my career,"
Martinez said. "Vets come
back broken down after being
injured and often have lost the
confidence a continue in life,
let alone start a business. The
Entrepreneurial Bootcamp for
Veterans with Disabilities gives
them the kn~owledge, skills and,
most importantly, confidence to
FSU faculty member Randy
Blass, who directs the boot camp,
described Martinez as someone
who "has an indomitable spirit
and has taken apersonal tragedy
and turned it mnto a personal
triumph. "This is the essence of
what we are trying to accomplish
with the boot camp," Blass said.
While JR's 'venture' is not of
the traditional brick-and-mortar
type, it is a venture just the same
and every bit entrepreneurial."
