An eighth grader at the Florida
School for the Deaf & Blind
(FSDB) in St. Augustine, Dalton

will assist Keys in performing Ray
Charles' version of America, the
Beautiful.
"She's excited about going,"
says her mom, Roxanna
Anderson, a nurse at
Blountstown Health and
Rehabilitation Center. "She said it
was something she didn't want to
miss."
Jodie, who is blind, has been
attending FSDB since she was
seven years old, but comes home
to Blountstown every weekend to
visit her mom aid grandparents,-
Dan Anderson and Irma Riley.


Jodie Dalton
Although she'll niiss her regular
visit, she tells her mom, "I won't
get another chance like this."
S According to a press release


from the school, the pre-game
show will honor Ray Charles and
his legendary music. Charles

and received his early Braille
music training there.
During the performance, the
blind/visually impaired students
will sing and the deaf/hard-of-
hearing students will sign the
song in American Sign Language.
"I'm very excited to be playing
at the Super Bowl for the first
time, especially because I will be
singing a song made famous by
an artist I admire, miss and
respect, Ray Charles, along with
the Florida School for the Deaf
and Blind," Keys states in a
press release on the
SuperBowl.com wbbsite. "I know
that this is going to be, a very
touching and memorable
moment."

Robert "Scooter" Lewis and his
father, Bob Lewis, 52, were trav-

Questions were *raised at the
last Blountstown City Council
meeting about a money market
account in excess of $2 million
being moved from a Blountstown
bank to an account with the State
Board of Administration (SBA);
During the Jan. 11 meeting,
Councilwoman Janie Boyd asked
City Manager Jimmy Hand about
the matter. "Why,would we move
our money market from a local
bank that pays utilities to us to
SBA?"
Hand replied that he was
doing as the Council had direct-
ed. "Ya'll told us to watch that
money market and, when it
changed, to get the higher inter-
est rate at SBA and that's what
we did."
Hand added that the funds
were liquid and could be moved
back at anytime.
Boyd advised she was told that
The Bank had offered to match
SBA's rate of 2.21%.
"Your direction wasn't to go
back and negotiate the rate, your
direction was to put it in with
SBA where the higher rate was,"
Hand replied.
Boyd countered that the rates
had been low for a long time and
emphasized that, although you
can't walk in the bank and be
given a matching rate, staff mem-
bers can contact' The Bank's
President to approve giving some-
thing more competitive.
Councilman Steve Bailey also
noted that he had been told The
Bank would match SBA's rate if it
was left on deposit there.
Hand said other banks in town
should also be considered and
Boyd said she assumed they were
being contacted from time to time


to negotiate better rates.
"I want the locals to have it as
much as anybody," said
Councilman John Tomlinson, Jr
"But we don't want to give it
away. [The Bank] didn't call us

Commissioners and interested citizens gathered at Lee Hill Road last Tuesday for a special meeting. The road
has been the subject of a lawsuit between the county and Roy and Janice Moore. Above, (from left) Surveyor Frank
Snowden, Commissioners Earl Hunt and Truman Grant, and County Attorney Matt Fuqua discuss the property dis-,

County votes 3-2 to drop



lawsuit against Moores


by Kelli Peacock


'A dispute over Lee Hill Road
appears to have ended after
Calhoun County Commissioners
voted 3-2 last week to drop a law-
suit against Roy and Janice
Moore.
The vote came at the regular.
meeting held Jan. 18. Earlier in
the day, commissioners met at
the road for a special meeting to
review the area involved in the
lawsuit.
"We want the insurance people
to tell us their decision," said
County Commissioner Jim
Pickron, who added that the law-
suit wasn't costing local taxpay-
ers a dime since it was covered


under title insurance.
Commissioner Earl Hunt
agreed. "I'm not for dropping .the
lawsuit," he remarked while
walking along Lee Hill Road. "I
just want to make the road pass-
able and I'm not for taking any of
[the Moores'] land."
Back in March; The County
Record reported commissioners
were at odds with the Moores
over a 42 foot strip 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 trespass-
ing if they stepped foot on it.
The properly in question,..
located at the corner of 11th
Street and Lee Hill Road, has


been in the family ,of Roy Lee
Moore for the last half century.
For the past 24 years, Roy and
Janice have made their home on
the site, paying taxes and home-
steading 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 therre 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

The County Record,-JANUARY 26, 2005, Page 4


Janice Moore talks with a News 13 reporter, along with area residents and County Commissioner Jim Pickron, at
p special meeting on Lee Hill Road last Tuesday. Moore has maintained that the county's survey of the road is wrong.




Lee Hill Road lawsuit-


the Moores have one of their own
which are conflicting.
SDespite the dispute, road work
'got underway. However, in April,
'the Florida Department of
.Environmental Protection issued
a certified letter to commissioners
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."
S' Commissioners filed suit .in
civil court August 17 against the
Moores to recover the property in
question. In their lawsuit, the


county sought a' judgment for
possession of the property and
damages against the county,
along with quiet title to the prop-,
erty in question.
Newly, elected District 1
Commissioner Da.mn Wise set
out to get the lI.v.stiit dropped..
"As long as I'm commissioner,
there won't be a, road going
through to anywhere from here,"
he remarked during the meeting
at the site.. .
Commission Chairman Tru-
man Grant said he hoped they
could reach a compromise with
the Moores. "We don't want to


take anybody's land," he stated.
Later that afternoon at the reg-
ular commission meeting, the
matter came up for a vote when
Commissioner Wise made a
motion to drop the lawsuit
against the Moores. His motion
was seconded by Commissioner
Jeral Hall, with Commissioners
Hunt and Pickron voting against
it. Commissioner Grant voted in.
favor of it and the motion carried.
Following more'discussion. the
board voted 3-2. with the same
.votes in favor .rnd against. to
abandon Lee Hill Road, making it
a private road.

describes Scooter as a "big teddy

"He was friendly and always
had a smile on his face," Register
recalls. "He was a ninth grader so
he was just getting acquainted
with all the students.. He'll be
missed."
Mandy Fowler, one ot his
teachers, agrees. "Robert was
really nice," she remarks.' "He
went out of his way to be friendly.
Whenever there were new kids,
he'd alwv.ays help them out. He
recall',' enlroedri being at the'higfhi
school and made friends really
quickly. I brought my four-year-
old daughter to school on one of

SThe Rev. Carl G. Garnett killed a rarity recently when he killed this eight-
point, 177-pound doe while hunting near Climax.



Rare '8 point' doe


bagged in Climax


By Joe Crine, Sports Writer
The Post Searchlight
Bainbridge. Georgia
The Rev. Carl G. Garnett, pas-
tor of Trinity Baptist Church,
killed' an extremely rare doe
recently' while hunting with his
friend, Ted Martin, near Climax.
The doe an eight-point set of antlers.
Normally, male deer bucks "A deer with a big rack came
out into a clearing, and I natural-
ly assumed it was:a buck," the
Rev. Garnett said. "I shot and
killed it, and when I got up to it, I
discovered it was a doe."
Oscar Dewberry, a wildlife
Biologist with the state of Georgia


for 35 years before retiring, said
he had heard of does with antlers
before, but never has seen a doe
with a rack that large. Dewberry
said the internal organs of the
deer matched.that of a doe.
"It is very rare," he said. "Does
usually don't have racks at all."
\Vildlife Technician Ranger
Bobby Stubbs agreed, pointing
out that such a. rare deer is
caused by an hormonal imbal-
ance and occurs once in some-
thing like evert 2,000 or 3,000
births or more.
The Rev. Carl G. Garnett:killed

from Blountstown High School
U.S.A.'s Favorite HOBY
Kori Edewaard, a sophomore at
Blountstown High School, has been
selected this year's Hugh O'Brian Youth
Leadership (HOBY) winner.
HOBY was founded in 1958 by Hugh
O'Brian. After he took a trip to Africa
where he spent nine days with Dr. Albert
Schweitzer and portrayed the legendary
lawman Wyatt Earp on television, he
decided that he wished to make his own
positive contribution to society and started
HOBY.
This is the 47th year the Hugh O'Brian
Youth Leadership conference has been
held. Over three hundred thousand stu-
dents have attended this invitation only
leadership opportunity since its inception.
Kori will be able to attend a four day
leadership seminar along with the bright-
est from around the state of Florida. She
will also have the chance to enhance her
leadership skills greatly and improve her
chances at becoming successful in the


future. Congratulations, Kori!
By: Ralph Levi Clark
Outdoor Education Guest
The Outdoor Education students of
Blountstown High School-had the privi-
lege of having a guest speaker on
Tuesday, January 18.
Mr. Arlo Cain, a wildlife biologist work-
ing with the Florida Wildlife Commission
in the Northwest Regional Office, stopped
in to speak to the students about the
Florida Buck Registry. He showed the stu-
dents the proper tools to be used and the
proper technique in scoring a buck.
Mr. Cain scored two bucks for the
class including one harvested by Mr. Gus
McClellan and another taken by Coach
Jordan. Each deer scored over 100 inch-
es which is high enough to receive a cer-
tificate from the Florida Buck Registry.
The Outdoor Education class would
like to thank Mr. Cain for sharing his
knowledge with us.

The Counselor Testifies through
Disciples
Text: John 15:26-16:4
D.L. Moody was a successful evange-
list and held revivals and Bible confer-
ences in both the U.S. and Great Britain in
the 1800's.
Moody was going to England and an
English pastor complained, "Why do we
need this 'Mr. Moody'? He's uneducated
and inexperienced. Who does he think he
is anyway? Does he think he has a
monopoly on the Holy Spirit?"
Another pastor heard him and replied,
"No, but the Holy Spirit has a monopoly
on Mr. Moody."
Jesus was counseling with His disci-
ples before He went to Jerusalem. Jesus
knew He was going to be arrested and
crucified. He told them He was going
away. The disciples were struck with grief.
Jesus comforted them with several
promises. They would have a home with
Him in heaven. He would do anything that
they asked in His name. He would send
His Holy Spirit to live inside them. He
would never leave them alone. He said
they would bear much fruit by staying in
close, settled union with Him.
Even so, Jesus warned them the world
would hate them. The world would not
understand or accept them. Nevertheless,
the Counselor would come, draw men to
Christ, and testify about Jesus through
the Disciples.
When they testified, Jesus warned
that they would be persecuted. He did not
want them to be surprised at the world's
reaction to the Gospel.
So it is with us. If we are filled with the
Spirit, we will be a testimony for Jesus
Christ. The world will reject our message
even though it is true. Nevertheless, we
will proclaim His grace and goodness.
The power of the Holy Spirit will enable
us.

Church leaders, including
many area pastors and lay lead-
ers, are sponsoring an evangelis-
tic crusade to be held January 30
- February 2, at First Baptist
Church of Blountstown. The
spokesman and evangelist, rec-
ommended personally by Dr. Billy
Graham, is Dr. Jim Wilson from
Orlando, FL. Wilson, the son of
T.W. Wilson, a long-time associ-
ate of Dr. Billy Graham, has mod-
eled much of his crusade min-
istry after the structure and style
of the Billy Graham Crusades.
Similar to a Billy Graham
Crusade, the visible public meet-
ing sof the crusades with an
evangelist and his team could be
compared to the tip of the ice-
berg. More than 90% of the effort
will be the preparation stage of
undergirding and organizing the
whole community up,to the time
the public meetings will begin.
Local leadership is responsible to
organize, publicize, pray, distrib-
ute materials, and recruit volun-
teers for major areas of involve-
ment. A local executive commit-
tee established a reasonable bud-
get and all offerings and financial
contributions will be under the
supervisor of a local finance
committee. It is agreed that no
financial offerings are given per-
sonally to the evangelist. Dr.
Wilson has a paid salary by the
Jim Wilson Evangelistic
Association, Inc., headquartered
