House fire on Hwy. 73



claims life of local man .


by Kelli Peacock
A, Clarksville man lost his life
in a house fire last Wednesday
night.
Authorities say Brian William
Cooley, 49, died from smoke
inhalation after his home, at the
corner of Hwy. 73 and Melody
Lane, caught fire.
According to Coy Huckaby, a
firefighter with the Carr-
Clarksville .. Volunteer Fire
Department, .a, passerby first
became suspicious. "One of the
firemen's' nieces a school kid
who works in Blountsto\'n was
-coming home and told her uncle
she thought a house was on fire,"
says Huckaby. "He and another
guy went to check and they didn't
even pull in the driveway, they
spun around and went straight to
the firehouse and immediately
.called -the Sheriffs Office on the
radio."
SThe call was logged at 9:27
Sip.m. and Huckaby says firefight-
S-rs were on the scene within sec-
cnrlds "It was a pretty .-ri, k
response." he remarks.
One plus was the fact the rire-
Shouse is located just a quarter
Smile from the Cooley home /
- Firefighters found the house
Fully engulfed with flames spread-
Sing all the way to the front porch.
Huckaby, who was a friend of
Cobley's, was immediately con-
cerned for his safety. "I knew he
wasn't outside;, says Huckaby.
"When I didn't see himout in the
crowd, I knew he was in there."
After the blaze was extin-
guished, Cooley's body was dis-
covered. "He was found in the
northeast bedroom of the home,"
reports Lt. .Joe Stedman of the
State. Fire Marshal's Office. "He
was about 20 feet, from a door
that led outside], but there were
some furnishings blocking that
door."
Lt. Stedman says the Cause of
the fire has.not been determined.
"At this time, the fire is still clas-
sified as under investigation." he
tells The County Record. 'There
are no indications of foul play or
any criminal activity being
involved.".
Determining where the fire
began has proven difficult for
authorities. "We.'e got a general
area on'the southwest portion o1
the home," says Lt. Stedman,
adding that the kitchen was on
that end of the home. "The struc-
ture is two mobile homes that
were joined together sp there are

County since 1982.
"He ,,'as a pretty good guy,'

says Huckaby who had known
Cooley for years. "He was very,
very smart. He worked and put
himself through nursing school."
Huckaby says Cooley had pre-
viously worked as a nurse at the
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital emer-
gency room, a local rehabilitation
center, and, most recently, at an
area correctional institution
before retiring.
Over the years, Cooley and his
family have endured a great deal
of loss. His young son, William
Robert, drowned .in Mississippi
while visiting his grandparents
years ago. A daughter, Cheryl,
also passed away at a young age.
Huckaby says Cooley recently
lost his mother. "His family has
just had a lot of tragedy,"
Huckaby points out.'

Teachers earn


by Kelli Peacock


Six. Calhoun County teachers
recently achieved the highest cre-
dential in the teaching profession
when they were named National
Board Certified Teachers
(NBCTs).
Altha Public School's own
Millie Williams, Mark Brogdon,
and Amy Valenta, along with
Treva McCroan and Karen Pitts of
Carr School, and Alicia Goodman
of Blourimi.sto'in Elementary
School, are among 1472 out-
standing educators from around
the state to reach this high level
of certification.
According to The National'
Board for Professional Teaching
Sti.an-lard', (NBPTS), the.
announcement comes on the
heels of independent research
pr,. irin National Board Certified
Teachers are among the best in
the country. Studies show stu-
dents of : C'I r., perform better on
tests, including the Stanford-9
Achievement Test.
A voluntary process estab-
lished by NBPTS, National Board
Certification is achieved through
a rigorous performance-based
assessment that takes between
one and three years to complete
and measures what accom-
plished teachers and school
coiinclor':' -.hloruld knoew and be
ablr to do
"We're very proud of our new


National Board Certified teach-
ers," says Calhoun County
School Superintendent Mary Sue
'Neves. 'These teachers are to be
commended for their hard work,
and dedication to their profes-
sional and personal growth. Our
school district now has a total of
12 National Board Certified
teachers and we encourage more
of our outstanding teachers to
apply for their National Board
Certification. Again, congratula-
tions and we are very proud of
each and every one of these
teachers."
One of the biggest incentives
for achieving this goal comes in
the form of a $4000 check pre-
sented to each NBCT every year
in January for 10 years. In addi-
tion, should they choose to men-
tor another teacher seeking certi-
fication, they will receive an addi-
tional $4000.
Williams teaches second
graders at Altha, Brogdon teach-
es fourth graders, and Valenta is
a social studies and Spanish
teacher. McCroan is a middle
school math and .science teacher,:
while Pitts teaches second grade.
Goodman is a special education
teacher.
Other Calhoun County teach-
ers who attained NBCT status in
previous year- are Marie Granger,

CaCI staff helps after ACI riot


by Kelli Peacock
Several Calhoun Correctional
Institution (CaCI) staff members
'spent Monday afternoon helping
officials at nearby Apalachee
Correctional Institution (ACI) in
Sneads after a riot broke out leav-
ing one officer stabbed and eight
others injured.
"A fight initially began with
two inmates outside the recre-
ation yard," Sterling Ivey,
spokesperson for the Florida
Department of Corrections tells

Then, that inmate took off run-
ning to the recreation yard, too."
At that point, Ivey says several
spontaneous fights broke out
amid a crowd of inmates estimat-
ed at 200 and the officers guard-
ing them. "It was all physical
from there," Ivey remarks, adding
that he is unsure whether any
weapons were used in the fights.
Eight officers, all unidentified
by DOC officials, were taken to
the ACI medical facility where
they were treated for fight related
wounds, abrasions, and swelling.
The officer who was stabbed was
transported to Jackson Hospital.

Dear Editor,
Million Craig's fourth birthday
is coming up the latter part of
February. It may be his last.
Million was born without a
brain. He has a brain stem. And
the doctors are surprised at how
alert the little boys is.
If you would care to send him
a birthday card, here is his
address:
Dillion Craig
3749 Club Estates Dr., Apt. #2
Muskogee, OK 74403
It would mean a lot to him and
his family and also reaffirm that
people really do care.

"At last report, his injuries were
not life threatening," says Ivey.
Immediately following the
altercations, the area was
secured and CaCI staffers, along
with Warden Jeffrey Wainwright
and Asst. Warden Henry Boyd,
arrived to assist. "Because there
was a large number of inmates on
the recreation yard, we have to go
through a tedious process of
securing the recreation yard with
about 200 inmates and search-
ing, identifying, and interviewing
each of those inmates to see how


they were involved in what hap-
pened," Ivey explains. "We use
staff from other prisons to help
with security and transporting
inmates from the recreation yard
to places where they can be iden-

Brandon Ellis, and Everett
Baggett had four points a piece.


Brad Neel added two.
"They beat us here it was a
close game at our place a week
ago," Coach Jason Keene points
out. "Then we went down there
and really played pretty decent.
We didn't turn the ball over too
much and had some new offen-
sive stuff we were working on
specifically for Grand Ridge. We
got a bunch of open shots and
just could not make them."
The Cats traveled to Poplar
Springs on Tuesday (details
unavailable at press time). They'll
be back at home for Friday's

Tigers fall to Cottondale and


Marianna; host St. Joe Friday


The Blountstown Tiger basket-
ball team was defeated by
Cottondale and Marianna last
week.
"We are still young and inexpe-
rienced, we just have been unable
to get- over the hump," says
Coach Jimmy- Rogers. "Had we
had a little more experience, we
could easily be sitting here at 19-
2, but we are learning and there
have been a lot of poltv:.es to
build on this last v. eek
Highlights from each of the
games are as follows:
Cottondale 70, Blountstown 66
Blountstown traveled to
'Cottondale and could not upset
the host Hornets, falling 70-66.
TJ Simmons led the Tigers
with 16 points. Joseph Warren
followed with 14 and Jason Byrd
chipped.in with 13 points. Justin


Watson added 2 points and 11
assists.
Marianna 56, Blountstown 46
The Tigers were able to stay
close to the visiting Bulldogs for
most of the game, trailing at the
half 28-26. BHS was down 4 (50-
46) with just under two minutes
to go, but missed free throws and
a few errant shots allowed
Marianna to pull away at the end.
Jerome Cooper led the Tigers
with 13 points. Jason Byrd added
11 points and Kenshare Grant
added 8. Courtney Thomas added
7 rebounds and 8 assists.
"Courtney; did the best job of
running the point that we have
had this season," Coach Rogers
points out. "He only had two
turnovers and one was my fault. I
am excited about this group, not


J.V. Cats win two out


of three on the road


by Jim McIntosh
The Altha boys junior varsity
Wildcats scratched out a 2-1 road
record last week. Here's the high-
lights:
Malone Makes the Most of
Altha's Late Turnovers
Altha took a six-game winning
streak into Malone last Tuesday,
hoping to stretch it even farther.
However, the Tiders dashed those
hopes when i.they c.-~sidI'J in four
fourth quarter turnovers into
ueigh points and sealed the win,
34-23.
S The Tigers opened the game
with an 11-6 first quarter lead
ariedstrethed it to 20-10 at half-
time. The ..!': ;."- '.. v. d back
to within five ,,,'i:; in the ihin-r
period, 26-21, but they could
only manage two i.-4wa' din the
final stanza,

'Cats kep I ..;I.. to connect frojn

i. r .. !! '. p r~rr-nt (10 of
32) of field goals, while
Male was v..-I on 65 percent
(15 of 23) of their shots. From
the free II,.. line the Wildcats
made only one of their seven
attempts while the Tigers con-
nected on three of their four
attempts. From beyond the
three-point arc Altha sank only
17 percent (2 of 12) while Malone
shot only slightly better-20 per-
cent (1 of 5).
Cale Chafin led the Wildcats
with 10 points, including a three-
pointer. Matt Maxwell knocked
down five points and one of them
was beyond the arc. Noah Byler
cashed in four points as well as
collecting two offensive rebounds.
Byler had a steal, too. Both Juan
Alejos and Matt Baggett scored a
deuce apiece. Alejos had four
steals and he snagged two defen-
sive rebounds. Baggett was a
rebounding force under the


boards pulling down five of them.
Hungry Wildcats Feast on
Seahawks, 37-19
Going almost six days without
a win, the Wildcats were hungry
for one.
They found their nourishment
in the form of the Class 2A South
Walton Seahawks of Santa Rosa
Beach last Thursday.
Altha started with an appetiz-
er-a 4-3 first quarter lead, The
feast began after Coach Sidney
Granger called timeout at the
1:59 mark in the second period.
With full court pressure and
timely steals, the 'Cats took a 17-
3 lead into the locker room. Altha.
continued feasting on South
Walton in the third quarter with a
27-11 score. They topped the
game off in the final period with a
14-point dessert.
Although Altha only' shot 38
percent (17 of 45) from the field,
they held- South Walton to 29 per-
cent (7 of 24) with great defense.
The Wildcats were sizzling at the
charity stripe hitting 75 percent
(6 of 8) while the Seahawks only
made 27 percent (3 of 11).
Both Cale Chafin and Kevin
Saldana led the 'Cats with nine
points each. Chafin swished the
lone three-pointer. Saldana got
defensive and had himself a block
party, swatting away three
Seahawks' shot attempts. Also,
Saldana was credited with two
defensive rebounds, an offensive
rebound and a steal. Noah Byler
chalked up six points as well as
two steals, a blocked shot and a
defensive rebound. Josh
McIntosh knocked down five
points and he had two take-
aways. Four Wildcats con-
tributed a field goal apiece: Matt
Baggett, Corde Beauchamp, Nic
Chamberlain, and Matt Maxwell.
Defensively, Baggett blocked a
shot, Beauchamp had two steals,
and Chamberlain blocked a shot

i hrl,.:lh it all, we wanted to finish
it off with a great evening of
recognlwln for our student-ath-
letes. Please come and join us!
One of the highlights of the
evening will be hearing from
Mickey Andrews. Florida State's
rise to become the most consis-
tently successful program in the
history of college football directly
correlates with the arrival of
SAdrews as defensive coordina-
tor. FSU's offense has long been
national championship caliber,
but it has been Andrews' ability
to catch the Tribe defense up
with the offense that has made
the Seminole program the power-
Shouse that it is today. So it was
fitting that Andrews added the
title of Associate Head Coach just
prior to the 2002 season.
Andrews' status as perhaps
the nation's finest coordinator is
not just shared by Bowden and
every FSU fan as he was recog-
nized in 1996 as the nation's top
assistant coach when he received
the first-ever .Frank Broyles
Award. Andrews directed the
nation's top rated rushing
defense in 1996 and his units
have been among the top five
nationally against the run in six
of the last 11 seasons. His 1998
defensive unit ranked No. 1
nationally in total defense and
pass defense. In addition, the
Seminoles ranked a close second
nationally in rushing defense and
scoring defense. In 2000, FSU
ranked among the country's top
15 in ever major defensive sta-
tistical category.
Under Andrews direction.
SFlorida State has become the top
producer of All-Amenca and NFL
caliber cornerbacks in the nation.
He has coached two players,
Deion Sanders (1988) and Terrell
Buckley (1991), who have won
the Jim Thorpe Trophy, given
annually to college football's top
defensive back. LeRoy Butler
joined those two as a consen-us
All-America pick in 1989.
S Clifton Abraham was an All-
American in 1994 and Corey
Sawyer in 1993, which means the
Seminoles had an All-American
at cornerback each year. from
1987-94. Tay Cody was a consen-
sus All-America selection as a
senior in 2000 and he was pre-
ceded by eventual All-Pro corner-
back Samari Rolle of the
Tennessee Titans.
S Andrews' defenses feature an
Attacking style up front that puts
pressure on.the opposing offense.
He is also a big believer in creat-
ing depth and uses as many as
40 players a game. In 1991,
Athlon's Magazine named him
the Assistant Coach of the Year


Mickey Andrews, associate head coach and defensive coordinator for the
Florida State Seminoles, will be the featured speaker at the BHS fall athletic


banquet Saturday night.

and in 1998 he was named the
national Defensive Coordinator of
the Year by American Football
Coach's Magazine.
Andrews came to Florida State
from the Arizona Wranglers of the
United States Football League
(USFL), where he spent one sea-
son as defensive coordinator after
having spent the previous 17
years coaching in the collegiate
ranks.
Andrews' coaching resume
includes stints at Eastern
Kentucky, Livingston, North
Alabama and two of the teams
that appear on the Seminoles'
2004 schedule. He was Clemson's
defensive coordinator from 197-7-
80 and was an assistant at
Florida in 1981-82.
From 1972-76, Andrews was
the head coach and athletic
director at North Alabama. He
was the head coach at Livingston
University from 1970-72 where
he won the NAIA national cham-
pionship.
A star on the football field and
the baseball diamond at the
University of Alabama from 1961-
64, Andrews earned second team
All-America honors as a wide
receiver and defensive back.
During his career, the Crimson
Tide won a pair of national cham-
pionships (1961, '64) and played
in three New Year's Day bowl
games.
In addition to his football hon-
ors, Andrews was an All-SEC
choice in baseball. In 1964, he
received, the Hugo Friedman

Award as Alabama's best all-
around athlete.
Andrews and his wife, Diane,
have two grown children Ronnie
and Shannon, and five grandchil-
dren.

Generosity: The Opportunities For
Giving
Generosity is defined as "carefully
managing resources" so one can gladly
help or give to those in need (Character
First!). Students and staff members at
Blountstown High School love this com-
munity, country, and world and strive to
make our world a better place for all.
The Student Council (Mrs. Gwen
Barwick, sponsor) conducted a blood
drive at Blountstown High School. Twenty
units of blood were donated.
The Future Business Leaders of
America (Mrs. Sharon Leonard-McCrone,
sponsor) and the Student Council have
been selling collegiate bears. All the prof-
its from this sale will go to the March of
Dimes, whose goal is for all babies to be


born healthy. At this point, over $1200 has
been raised.
In addition, a Toys for Tots drive was
held at Blountstown High School. Mrs.
Sharon Leonard-McCrone was in charge
of this endeavor. Students and staff
placed their donations underneath a
Christmas tree in her classroom. Over
200 toys were given to the sheriff's
department for distribution. Also, FBLA
took Santa pictures at Magnolia Square
and raised $160.00, which was given to a
needy student.
FBLA members and their parents con-
tinuously strive to help others. At the pre-
sent time, a FBLA group of parents is sell-
ing raffle tickets on a$120.00 teddy bear.
All profit from the sale of the tickets will go
to the March of Dimes.
Tigers International is now taking
donations that will be given to help the vic-
tims of the tsunami. Donations will be split
equally between UNICEF and Doctors
Without Borders. Thus far, $300.00 has
been raised.
We, at Blountstown High School, are
very proud of our students and communi-
ty and appreciate the generosity shown
by our students, our students' parents,
teacher/staff, and others.

Hidden Treasures

i McDougald Q

Jesus Goes So the
Counselor Will Come
Text: John 16:5-7
A Norwegian explorer named Roald
Amundsen was the first to discover the
magnetic North Pole and the Souih Pole.
According to Symbols of the Holy
Spirit, Amundsen took a homing pigeon
with him on his trip to the North Pole.
When he was finally standing on the top of
the world, he set the bird free. The bird
flew off in the direction of home.
Not long after, Amundsen's wife
looked out the door and saw the pigeon
circling in the sky. She exclaimed, "He's
alive! My husband is still alive!"
The disciples were filled with grief
when Jesus told them He was. going
away. They loved Jesus. They had forsak-
en everything to be with Him. For three
years they had devoted their entire life to
following, Christ. Jesus was both their
Lord and friend.
Now they were hearing that He was
going away. They heard that the world
would, hate them. They heard that they
woulo be perseculed'ior lesItylng about
ihei .er iruitin inai .I-us. Iluao ni them.
They were expecting Jesus to set up His
kingdom. This was not what they were
expecting.
Jesus comforted them with this truth,
"It .is for your good that I am, going away
(NIV)." He was not going away to aban-
don them to the world. He was going
away so He could send the Comforter.
The Comforter would come and live in
the heart of every believer in Christ. The
believer would never have to bealone.
Amundsen's wife looked out the door,
saw the pigeon and knew that her hus-
band was alive. When we receive the
Holy Spirit upon our confession of faith,
we can exclaim, "Christ is alive!" That is a
good thing!

WFEC donates to Red Cross
West Florida Electric Cooperative Communications Supervisor John
Thornton, at left, presents a $1,650 check to American Red Cross Central
Panhandle Chapter Executive Director Bob Pearce. WFEC is one of 18
Florida and Alabama cooperatives chosen by the National Cooperative
Services Corporation to receive funds for charities in the cooperatives' com-,
munities from NCSC's Community Outreach Program. NCSC is a privately-
funded, 5'er-ter-ovned cooperative that provides specialized financing ser-
vices to electric cooperatives. The donation will assist the Red Cross Central
Panhandle Chaoter in providing services in the four counties WFEC serves -
Calioun-r Hirrtmes, .Jackson and Washington plus Bay and Gulf, the two
other counties in the Chaplar's region. These services include disaster relief,
c isas:er pre,eia-: cn and preparedness programs, scholarships for first aidg
and cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR) classes and swimming instruction
for children whose families otherwise can't afford it. "We're still working with
families impacted by Hurricane Ivan and the tornadoes," Pearce said. "Over
the holidays, we worked a half-dozen single-family housefires and had two.
deaths from condo fires recently in our area. We appreciate this help very
much." The contribution reflects WFEC's commitment to community, a core
value of all T'.uch ;r'ne Energy cooperatives.

So why do we leave unnecessary lights on? Electric current is like water it flows.
If you could see electric current, you 'd probably be more careful about
turning off unnecessary power drains. It may only take pennies a day to bum a
light bulb but take a penny, double the amount every day, and in 30 days...

Just another energy saving tip from your local electric cooperative.

Altha Spoils.Grand Ridge's
Homecoming, 33-30 z -'-
It's always good to beat one of
your rivals.
But to sweep them on their
homecoming night is even sweet-
er and that's just what these
young 'Cats did last Friday night.
However, the Indians came out
in the first quarter determined to
avenge a loss that had occurred
just a week earlier. They took a
7--6 lead. The Wildcats kept it
close at halftime, trailing by two,
16-14. Altha hung tough in the
third period but still trailed by a
deuce, 23-21. In the final stanza
the Wildcats would make a 12-7
run to' chalk up win number 11
cOr the year.
Both teams shot 37 percent
from the field. Altha netted 13 of
35 attempts while Grand Ridge
made good on only 7of 19
attempts. The Wildcats were bet-
ter from the free throw line mak-
ing -40 percent (4 of.10) while the
Indians only sank 1 .,f their three
attempts (or 33 percent). Grand
Ridge topped Altha from beyond
the arc: the Indians tallied 43
iprcent (3 of 7) while the Wildcats
only sank 21 percent (3 of 14).
Kevin Saldana was doing his
thing in the paint, racking up 12
points to lead the Wildcats. He
cleaned the offensive boards five
times and pulled down two defen-
sive rebounds. Noah Byler and
Cale Chafin each scored seven
points. Byler raked down three
rebounds-two offensive and one
defensive--and he had two steals.
Chafin snagged a defensive
rebound. Josh McIntosh swished
.a three-pointer and picked the
Indians' pocket three times and
he also had a defensive rebound.
Corde Beauchamp scored a field


goal and Matt Maxwell sank his
two free throw opportunities.
The win gives the Wildcats an
11-6 record on the season (this
includes an earlier forfeit by
Wewahitchka).
Yesterday (Tuesday) Altha
traveled to Poplar Springs (details
unavailable at press time).
Saturday they will play at
