of property on Lee Hill Road. The
county said they were using the
land to widen the road, while the
Moores vowed they'd be .charged
with trespassing if they stepped
foot on it.
The property in question,
located at the corner of 11th
Street and Lee Hill Road, has
been in the family of Roy Lee

owner arrived and found some-
one had entered through a win-
dow that was closed, but had
been left unlocked. Missing was a
bottle of Vodka, some food, and
clothing, including jeans, boots,
and several.t-shirts. In addition,
vomit was discovered on the floor
and furniture, and some hair that
didn't belong to the homeowner
was found in the bathtub.
Based on information obtained
from neighbors, the homeowner
said she suspected Sapp could be
the culprit. Dep. Keller began

Jail at pre time.


"In 1953, Roy's grandaddy
bought this from Silas Yon,"
Janice explained in an interview
last year. For the pagt 24 years,
Roy and Janice have made their
home on the site, paying taxes
and homesteading the property.
. In October of 2003, Janice
came home to find. survey stakes
in: their yard and went to the
county commission to find out
why they were there. She learned
the county planned to widen the
road. cutting clear across her
yard right in front of her house
and down the side of her proper-
ty. She later found out the widen-
ing was to create another access
road for Sam Atkins Park.
Former Commissioner Donnell
Whitfield. in whose district the
property Fell. told The County
Record back in March the land
belongs to the county. He said
nearly three years ago, the coun-
ty obtained 22 acres from Charlie
Yon through a Florida Trust
grant.
The county has a survey and
th.-- (o-I. H '_- 1 h1 -.-,:- IICf the-i Ir .:.'-"
\whucn are conuihctng.
Despite the dispute. road work
got underway. However, in April.
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection issued
a certified letter to commission-
ers, requesting that work on the
road "cease immediately" after an
inspector "observed that wet-
lands were dredged and filled
without prior authorization from
the Department."
Commissioners filed suit 'in
civil court August 17 against the
Moores to recover the property in
question. In their lawsuit, com-
missioners are seeking judgment
for possession of the property and
damages against the county,
along with quiet title to the prop-
erty in" question.
"When I first read it, I couldn't
believe a county commissioner
would do that to ,a citizen of
Calhoun, County," Wise told The
County Record during an inter-
view Monday.
After being elected to office in
November, Wise set out to get the
lawsuit'dropped. However, his
motions to do just that have died
for lack of a second in the past
two commission meetings. Wise
is puzzled by the fact his fellow
board members are pursuing the
lawsuit particularly since the
land in question falls in his dis-
trict.
Along with the Moores. Wise
says there are other neighbors on
Lee Hill Road who are opposed to
the widening, but can't afford to

Brandon Barrett Barbee
Born Tallahassee, FL
Jan. 17, 1981
SDied Troy, AL Jan. 13, 2003
The son of Logan and Georgia
Barbee. The brother of Matthew
and Jim Barbee.
Brandon has been gone from
us for two years. He was a
wonderful son and brother and we
miss him every minute'of every
day.
It has been a miracle how we
lived through it all, losing
Brandon. It has been a mircale to
go on enough to where other
family members can make you
laugh, or a hug can warm you. To
get past craving darkness and
sleep and become grateful for
what we have.
Time does not heal our great
loss and that we can go on is a
miracle, but it does not mean, as
so much of this hurting world
knows, that we love or miss:
Brandon less.
Thank you for your prayers,
and remember Brandon.
Sincerely,
Lp His Mama

The next Calhoun County
AARP Chapter meeting will be
very important for everybody on
social security and medicare.
Most people are not aware that
the government is considering
putting a cap on medicare to save
money and charging social secu-
rity for setting up private invest-
ments from social security
whether you want private invest-
ments or not. This will reduce
your monthly social security pay-
ments. AARP opposes these gov-
ernment plans to save money. If
you do not want these govern-
ment plans to be enacted, you
need to be at our next meeting to
sign a petition in opposition to be
furnished by our AARP represen-
tatives in Washington, DC.

How to help Tsunami victims


Letter to the Editor
Jane Anders Ruffin, a member
of the Blountstown High School
Class of 1973, recently shared a
copy of this letter she sent to the
Florida Times-Union back in
December after sportswriter
Chase Goodbread "dissed" the
Tigers in his column. Here's an
excerpt:
Blountstown may be "rural",
but is there anything wrong with
that? Have I told you our town
has 2 red lights, loads of loving
families, and a school system
that has been ranked 1, 2, and 3
for the highest FCAT scores in
Florida in math and reading.
(And it's a public school.) Shhh!!!
Don't tell anybody!!! They may
want to move in and take over
our sweet town.
Evei heard of our town? Well,
it is the home of the late Governor
Fuller Warren who was born
there and is buried there. You
may know the bridge in
Jacksonville that you pass over
daily is named in his honor. Hey,
this gentleman was born and
bred in Blountstown, Florida,
also like me. The country girl that
I may still be certainly hasn't let
me forget where I came from.
The home of the Blountstown
fighting Tigers is a fantastic place
to grow up. Families are close,
watching out for everyone's kids.
Churches are packed every
Sunday and Wednesday with
families worshipping.
SHunting for deer, quail and
dove at my father's camp or in his
peanut fields was a girl's dream
come true. Boy, did we love riding
around the town with the deer on
the hood of the "Pick um up
Truck" to show our trophies!!
What a wonderful life I-had in
this rural town. Of course, it's
about having the security of fam-
ily, closeness with your neigh-
bors, and good times, including
sports at our schools and so
much more that I cannot list it
here.

Respectfully submitted,
Jane Anders Ruffin
1973 graduate of BHS
Dear Editor,
This letter is addressed to our
family and friends living in
Calhoun County. My son,
Michael Dawsey, has been sick
for a long time and we have all
wondered if anyone was going to
find out what was wrong with
him. Through much diligence,
, many prayers, and lots of love we
have finally found the culprit of
Michael's on-going agony.
Eighteen months ago he got
very sick and now we know that
his problems are caused by a dis-
ease call Cat Scratch Disease ( an
advanced form of Cat Scratch
Fever). Michael will need to have.
some surgeries in .the near
future. It will take some time'
before Michael is better.
We truly are blessed to have so
many people in our lives that care
so much about our well being.
With your love and prayers he
has shown some improvement.
We. know he will get better in time
(doctors say probably within 2
years after numerous surgeries)
as long as we have friends and
family, but most of all as long as
we have god. Thank you so much
and we hoe he your families are
.:- c as you have- all blessed

Somehow, largely through the Grace of
God, devoted loyalty, and the vast pride on
the part of many people, The County
Record has never missed an issue.


I So how is it better? Because
now they will need each other to
break deadlocks and to openly
study/research ALL Calhoun
county problems (to keep solvent
and avoid bankruptcy). for years
they have stubbornly violated
Oaths-of-Office-etc. and only
attended to their own Districts
rather than to the entire County.
District-only Elections and lack
of a Charter and Elected
Mayor/Manager-etc. is of no
excuse. BOOM! Now could be a
chance for all problems to be
solved out-of-court in a common-
sense fashion! So thanks again
Commissioner Wise! Please con-
tinue doing homework!
What are some of the other
problems that require Full House
open-to-the-public discussion?
Commissioner Pickeron (Dist. 5)
desperately needs help. He was
asked to settle the JeHue Rd.
Boat Landing/Lawsuit as the
legal clocks still ticks. More Dist.
5 ticking could soon erupt regard-
ing Chipola Road's and Mike and
Cathy Willis's 15-yr. old
unhealthy drainage ditch prob-
lem.
Newly elected Commissioner
Jeral Hall's Dist. 3
Airport/Industrial Park Project is
perhaps the largest potential
time-bomb. In addition to IDA
Board and Commissioner's previ-
ous decisions being in possible
jeopardy (due to ignoring an old
but valid Fla. Statute) no one has
really explored present-day rain-
wat er co m p o sting
toilet/kitchen/shower/sewage
.technology. Such healthy and
inexpensive do-it-yourself equip-
ment could be tried as ,a tempo-
rary replacement of an antiqiut-
ed / condemned/unhealthy
water/sewage facility.
Complaints have existed for some
time re..polluting area's water-
etc. Also the proposed paved
runway could be angled for more
length and further protection to
surrounding neighbors.
Commissioner Earl Hunt's
(Dist. 2) Altha water/septic tank
problems could also be affected.
Commissioner Chairman Grant's
(Dist. 4) is vitally affected by the
Apalachicola River in turn pol-
luted/drained by Atlanta's booms
and sewage disposal, compost-
ing toilets-etc there and Talla.
could save whole S.E. U.S.A., and
settle a ton of Govt. Lawsuits
being paid for by Guess Who?
We're told we shouldn't blame
County Atty. Fuqua for legal
problems, as it's his" Job to
accommodate Client questions
and requests. However, the fol-.
lowing Fla. Supreme Court
research reveals there could be
an opposing opinion:
A lawyer's responsibility to the
public rises above his responsibil-
ity to his client, and he must
uphold democratic concepts
regardless of how they affect the
case in hand (40 So. 2d Pg. 903
Para. 12 Key 32).
Respectfully,
Mike Calhoun, cc/cc

YOUR NEXT PRINTING ORDER

thet ountl ReRord


As most people know, an
undersea earthquake recently
sent tsunami waves into low lying
areas of 11 countries around the
Indian Ocean. The death toll
continues to rise. Additionally,
infrastructure losses were
tremendous, with countless
thousands of homes and busi-
nesses destroyed.
In response to questions of
"How can I help?" the United Way
of Northwest Florida has opened
an Asian Relief Fund. There will
be two parts to the fund, one for
immediate relief and another for
long term infrastructure repair
and replacement. Funds con-
tributed to the immediate relief
section will be sent to the Church
World Service Emergency
Response Program, while those
designated for the longer term
will go, to .United Way
International, which has affiliates


operating in the region.
Ed Richards, president of
United Way of Northwest Florida
explained why the fund was initi-
ated. "From what I can see from
press reports, this is one of the
largest disasters in recorded
time. The needs are great and will
continue to be so for a long time
to come. We felt that it was
important to enable the people in
our six county area the ability to
contribute financially to help
meet the overwhelming needs on
the other side of the world."
In order to make a contribu-
tion, mail your checks or credit
card information to United Way of
Northwest Florida, P.O. Box 586,
Panama City, FL 32402, or bring
them to the United Way offices at
518 Mulberry Avenue in down-
town Panama City. Mark the
contribution "Immediate Relief'
or "Long Term Relief'. As in past


disaster relief efforts, no adminis-
tration fees will be taken from
these contributions.
United Way of Northwest
Florida is a 501(c) 3 charitable
organization which supports 40
Affiliated Agencies in Bay,
Calhoun, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson
and Washington counties
through its fund raising efforts.


In those counties it makes a dif-
ference for over 30,000 people
each year by change lives, shap-
ing communities and investing in
results. It's what matters.

She regional habitat restoration
ogrirn Operation Oak. This
-ar. with the help of the NRCS
erai.. 44,000 seedlings will be
jlanted. The Federation will dis-


tribute 8,000 seedlings to be
planted by volunteers in Virginia,
North Carolina, South Carolina,
Tennessee, Georgia, Florida,
Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana,
Texas and Arkansas. The
Federation will use the grant to
pay for an additional 36,000 oak
trees to be planted on public land:
in Arkansas, Georgia, Florida and
Alabama.
The Federation created
Operation Oak in 2000 to coun-
teract the trend of oak loss by
supplying volunteers with saw-
tooth oak seedlings. In 1993 biol-
ogists from the NWTF, U.S. Forest
Service and the Georgia Forestry
Commission started working on
the development of a nursery pro-
cedure to produce large, healthy
oak -i :dli-, i that will out-com-
pete :;-".,.' .l'Inl and red maple.
The hl-,il'sis developed
seedlings that will outgrow the
other hardwoods and even pro-
duce acorns Ibin seven to nine
years.
"Oak trees typically produce
very few acorns until lih-v'r':
about 20 years old and don't
reach peak production until
between 40 and 100 years old,"
said Vance. "We really have to
plan ahead, so our volunteers'
have been planting oaks for sev-
eral years."
Seedlings for volunteers will be .
distributed through individual
chapters in the Operation Oak
region. For information about
getting seedlings through
Operation Oak contact your state
chapter president or call Scott
Vance. at (803) 637-3106.

Ishmeal Grant led the Tigers with 21 points against Sneads.

Sneads 58, Blountstown 56
Blountstown fell behind by as
many as 15 points in the first half

back and took over the lead mid-
way through the fourth period.
Leading 56-53, the Tigers turned
it over four times in the last two
minutes and lost 58-56.
The Tigers were lead by
Ishmeal Grant's 21 points.
Jerome Cooper added 15 points,
TJ Simmons contributed 11
points in the losing cause.


NWF Greenway gets


Walton County land


Florida added 1,500 acres of
land to the Northwest Florida
Greenway this week through a
land preservation agreement with
a Walton.County landowner. The
conservation. easement, donated
by M.C. Davis to the' State of
Florida, protects the acreage from
development while allowing the
property owner continued use of
the land.
"By preserving miles of natural
landscape, the Northwest Florida
Greenway protects habitat for
wildlife and contributes to the
nation's military mission," said
Department of Environmental
Protection Secretary Colleen M.
Castille.
Established in November
2003, the Northwest Florida
Greenway creates a n-;-' j.:.',
corridor spanning six counties
and f,.... .-.: the F..'T I. h of
military aircraft on .training and
testing exercises from the
Apalachicola National Forest and
the Gulf coast to Ei' Air Force
Base. if ri'- to five i_ Air Force
and Navy in I -j[ -'t, *n-.-. the region
is also a known biological "hot
r, i" for wildlife and, native flora.
The Greenway is a partnership
between the Department of


Howell in marathon
On December 19th, Allyson.
Howell completed the Jacksonville
Half Marathon. It was her first
half marathon consisting of 13.1
miles. She plans on running a full
26.2 mile marathon next.
Congratulations, Allyson.


Defense, the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection and
The Nature Conservancy, along
with a host of other agencies.
Along with the 1,500-acre con-
servation easement, the
Greenway partnership has
already conserved nearly 50,000
acres. The area-supports a diver-
sity of ecologically sensitive nat-
ural communities, such as black
bear habitat, estuarine tidal
marshes and floodplain swamps.
Across the state, Florida is
:Irquiring land around military
bases through Florida Forever,
the 10-year, $3 billion land con-
E-rvatroi program established by
Governor Jeb Bush and the
Florida Legislature. The State has
invested $719 million to acquire
nearly one-half million acres of
land buffering military installa-
iins across the state, protecting
natural resources and benefiting
military operations.


Blountstown 53, Vernon 50
The BHS Tigers jumped out to
an early 32-15 halftime lead and
held on to win 53-50 over Vernon.
The win evened the Tigers record
at 6-6.
The Tigers were lead by
Ishmeal Grant's. 20 points.
Kenshare Grant chipped in with
10 points.
PC Arnold 51, Blountstown 50
The Tigers' started slow but
stayed even with the 1,0-3 Marlins
in the firstl'lf. The Tigers
mounted a charge-and were able
to build an 11 point lead (38-27)
with 3:14 left in regulation.
Turnovers, coupled with the loss
of Grant, allowed the Marlins to
come back and take the game
into overtime. In overtime, the
Tigers build a 4 point lead, but
again could not hold on to the
lead and Arnold left with a 51-50
victory.
Kenshare Grant led the Tigers
with 13 points. Ishmeal Grant
added 10. Jerome Cooper
knocked in 7. Joseph Warren,
Adam Richards and Jerome
SWatson all added 6 points.
"This is a typical game for us
and it is driving me crazy," Coach
Jimmy Rogers remarks. "We need
solid point guard play and we
need to eliminate turnovers. We
are playing the best defense of all
my teams at BHS, butwe can not
hold leads and play smart at the
end of the game. We are 6-7, and
all but 2 of those games we held a
lead with 2 minutes or less to go.
We have to find someone to step
up and run the show. We could
easily be 11-2 right now, but we


have got to ,become basketball
smart..... We will keep. plugging
and trying to get it worked out by
the end of the season where we
can make a run."
The Tigers hosted Cottondale
Jan. 11 '(details unavailable at
press time). Wewa comes to town
Friday and a re-match against
Sneads is set for Tuesday in the
BHS gym. Game time is 6 p.m. for
J.V., followed by varsity at 7:30.

nized by the Chairman, go to the podium,

nized by the Chairman before speaking.

ing a change in the format of the minutes.

brought in to take the minutes. She

lows:

vi.de a summary of information. Extensive

... 2. a. Comments and interactions from
thQ audience is almost impossible to fol-
'low when keeping minutes.
b. If an individual wishes more than
five minutes to comment, that person
should get on the agenda for the next
,rneting.

Do You Know Him?
Text: John 15:21
Whai does it mean to know someone9
We may like to discuss poililcs and know
all about Prcsidenl Bush We may be able
t10 discuss his polices and political agen-
da in depth We may even be a fan and
know all about his wile and family We
mig-ht even know Ihe name 01 his dog. But
if you are like me, if President Bush hears
your name, he does not know who you
are. Can we say that we know him?
We may know all about our favorite
sports figure We may know all about his
game, his statistics, his medical condition,
how many hours a day he works out,
where he lives, how much money he
makes, and even what he eats for break-
fast. But Michael Jordan does not know'
my name. Evandei Holyfleld has never
heard of me. Do I know Ithem?
Webster says that to know "..pre-
cludes all doubt or incertairiy of its exis-
tence.. To be no stranger to: to be famil-
iar...to recognize by recollection, remem-
brance...or 'description."
We can know a man because we'have
seen his picture and recognize him.
However, we may not know a man if he
has been away for a long time.
I submit that we do not'truly know


someone unless he knows us. We may
know of someone, meaning that we know
they exist and'that we recognize who they
are. But to truly know someone, you must
have an encounter with him. You must
have intimate knowledge. .
Why will people persecute you for
being a disciple' Jesus said it was
because they did not know the'One who
sent Him. God They have not:had an
encounter with God They have no inti-
mate knowledge. The Bible says, "...the
sinful mind Is hostile to God (NIV)." But to
know Him is$ to love Him '
