Just visiting the historic Dixie
Theatre makes the trip to
Apalachicola worthwhile.
Originally constructed in 1912,
the Dixie opened in April 1913 as
a theatre for live entertainment
and later evolved into a movie
theatre. The Dixie closed down in
1967 and remained unoccupied
for over 25 years. It was about to
literally fall in when Rex and Cleo
Partington came to the rescue in
1994.
The Partingtons, who had
spent their lives in live profes-
sional theater throughout the
United States, went about
redesigning the Dixie Theatre,


replicating the original as much
as possible. The theatre opened
it's doors in 1998.
The Dixie Theatre is located at

',before the revitalization took place.


This "after" shot of the same building shows the amazing transformation
that is taking place ih downtown Bainbridge.


Turning downtown around

A look at how Bainbridge, GA did it Office. Downtown is also one of meeting on Tuesday, March 8, at
the topics on the agenda for the 6 p.m.
...and how Blountstown could, too. __________


S by Kelli Peacock
SWhen's the last time you've
driven through downtown
t Blountstown and said .something
along .the lines of. Why can't we
-fix this place up like Havana or
. palachicola?
. After repeatedly hearing com-
mients such as these (as well as
thinking them ourselves), The
County Record decided to do a lit-
,tle research and find out how
cities with successful downtown
:have gotten it done and what
,.our community can do to follow
Their examples.
SIn some cases, we've found pri-
vate investors have been the sav-
ing grace behind seemingly for-
'gotten downtown spaces that
'have been transformed. However,
that doesn't seem to be a solution
for downtown Blountstown since
-some buildings have been vacant
for over a decade and no one
appears to be waiting in the
winds to "rescue" them.
Hoi:v.e.er, for one nearby com-
munity. the solution for turning
Their downtown around was
n. Io:hin short of creative genius.

Painbridge Downitov-n
e Development Authority took a
cold. hard look at the magie their
dc'\nl to:'.r i '.'as pr'ojeci-ine2 and
decided to ta ke the bull by the
horns. The\ presented.. proposal

and con-inced the Cay Io, ptur-

Srowved their fIcus to one section
o of do'i\\nil..-n and deemed it the
Water Street Project,
SCi., officials, arn_':I,:us Io see
downtown revitalized and attract
.new .retail businesses, airced
iThey obtained a CDBG grant for


just over $300,000, added almost
$,400,000 of City funds, and
another $200,000 from a private
foundation.
"It wasn't an easy project,"
"says Chris Hobby, Bainbndae's
City Manager who has been a key
leader in the effort. "We didn't
just go, in and tear everything
down we .tried to rehabilitate
what was there."
Hobby says the Water Street
Project .involved seven retail
spaces, along with three residen-
tial spaces located on the second
floor of the businesses that were
turned into condominiums. 'The
residential spaces sold first," he
remarks. 'The retail space was
slower and we still have three
retail spaces left, but four have
filled and this was a completely
vacant block. Now they're con-
tributing sales and property taxes
- it wasn't contributing anything
to, the economy and now it's gen-
erating positive cash flow."
Hobby says tackling a down-
town project has to be done for
the right reasons. "You can't go
into it expecting to make a profit,"
he emphasizes. "You have to go
into it thinking you're really try-
inri to turn an area around that
isn't producing anything Our
goal h-az been to recoup the local
money and not try and nmak th-
grant money back that's what
we've tried to sell them for. Money
generated from selling the prop-
erty is put into a evolving pool
and we'll use those funds again -
we'll do another.project."
Hobby say-s (Cit officials and
the DoUwntov.'n Development
Authority are already\ making

Looking back on their tirst pro-

The Daytona 500, held at Daytona
International Speedway each February, is
the most famous stock-car race in the
world. It's NASCAR's Super Bowl and is
the race every driver dreams of winning.
The Daytona International Speedway is the
most famous track in NASCAR racing mostly because
Daytona Beach is where NASCAR began. Even before
NASCAR was founded, racers would flock to Daytona's hard-
packed sand beaches to go head-to-head against each other
while trying to avoid the incoming tide. Some of the most leg-
endary drivers in the world'have.won the event, including
Richard Petty, a record seven times, Cale Yarborough,, and
even Indy 500 winners Mario Andretti and A.J. Foyt.


After a 2004 season of remodeling
that saw NASCAR change everything
from its'gasoline to its boss and the
name of its top series, the new wrin-
kles for 2005 seem like a small bump
in the track. New NASCAR rules have
reduced the size of rear spoilers
except for those on the restrictor-plate
tracks at Daytona and Talladega.
Goodyear is introducing softer tire
compounds. Both changes make han-
dling an issue on downforce cars,but
early tests are showing little differ-
ences. Longer-range NASCAR plans
remain in play. Safety issues are at the
forefront, and development continues
on the so-called "car of the future,"
designed to protect drivers, cut high-
tech costs and level competition
between manufacturers. Cutting costs
for race teams is a priority, Brian
France said, so that big spending on
technology doesn't necessarily buy
victories and championships.

by Coach Robbie Smith
SAlisha McClellan, Courtney
Beauchamp, and Joy Capps all
represented Altha High School
well over the weekend at the 2005
Girls State Weightlifting
Championships.
" Alisha' McClellan finished
14th, Joy Capps placed 22nd and
Courtney Beauchamp finished
7th. Both' Courtney and Joy will
be returning next year while
Alisha ended her high school
career Saturday.
I am extremely proud of these
girls for making it as far as they'
did this year. Most people from
the bigger schools can't pro-
nounce Altha, much less have
any idea where we're located.
Courtney Beauchamp had a
great clean and jerk to get within
5 pounds cf medaIing in th 1 10
weight class. She finished wth a,.


240 total (120-120). She went
from 14th last year to 7th this
year. She'll be a senior next year
and who knows what may hap-
pen. She has a great work ethic
and I can definitely see her mak-
ing a run at the title next year.
It was an exciting day for our
girls and an ending to a great sea-
son. Despite only having 12 girls
on this year's team, we were still
able to win all of our meets and
end the year with a record of 5-0.
This was our third year of girls
weightlifting at Altha .High
School. We have compiled a 13-2
record in those three years while
qualifying 6 girls to the state final
with 1 girl winning the state
championship.
I look forward to the off s.eiso'n

The Altha J.V. Wildcats.contin-
ued their winning streak last
week. ending the season with a
1.5-6 record. Here are the game
summaries:
Cardiac 'Cats Tame Lions for
Third Overtime Win
SThe lion may be the king of the
jungle but the Wildcats showed
the Covqnant Christian Lions
they werd defenders of their Den
last Tuesday night when Altha
defeated (he Panama City visitors
37-30 in (overtime.
1 Covernant jumped out to an
I1-7 leap but Altha. knotted it at
t4 at intermission. Once, again
the Lioris' built a four-point lead
ih the tIird period to go on top
23-19. i But those "won't quit"
'Cats ti4d it again at the end of
regulation. 29-29. In overtime
they showed they were the kings
of their own court by holding
Covenant to just one point while
posting eight themselves. With
the Win the Wildcats claimed
their third overtime victory of the
season (2A 'Freeport and
Graceville were the other victims).
From the offensive numbers it
is easy to see how evenly matched


had seven steals and seven
assists. Lewis had four steals and
four assists.
"I thought the last part of the
year we started playing a little
better," says Coach Keene. "We
played Poplar Springs close,
Grand. Ridge close and Liberty
County close, and won those
other games. I think it' shows
improvement, even though we've
got a long way to go to build a
winning basketball program
here."
The Cats took on Poplar
Springs Tuesday night in the first
round of the district tournament
in Grand Ridge (details unavail-
able at press time). If they won
that game, they're set to face
Malone Thursday night. The dis-
trict championship will be held
Friday night.


these two teams were. The
Wildcats netted 55 percent (17 of
31) of their field goals while the
Lions made 52 percent (1i2 of 23).
From the free throw line Altha
canned 43 percent (3 of 7) while
Covenant connected on 40 per-.
cent (4 of 10). .For the first time
this season the 'Cats 'failed to
knock down a 3-pointer while the
Lions shot 29 percent (2 of 7).
Altha's inside duo bf forward
Matt Baggett and center Kevin
Saldana produced 27 of the
Wildcat's 37 points. Baggett led
all scorers by bagging a game and
season-high. 17 -points. Also,
Matt had two steals.:a defensive
rebound, and he blocked a shot.
Kevin stroked 10 points and he
was busy doing a' little board
cleaning with four defensive
rebounds and an offensive one.
Noah Byler put five points in the
bank. Corde Boauchamp and
Josh McIntosh chipped in a field
goal apiece. Both of them as well
created havoc for the Lions with
three steals and two rebounds.
Cale Chafin contributed a free
throw and he was credited with a
steal.

Chipola homecoming set


Blaze spreads on Turkey Creek Rd.
A Bristol mobile home, shed, and several acres burned Friday after a blaze spread along Turkey Creek Road.
Randy Stewart, who owns the property with his family, spoke with The County Record at the scene and said he was
preparing about a 10 foot square area for a garden and was burning that section when the fire suddenly spread. "We
weren't planning to burn the trailer or the land," he remarked with a laugh. He said he attempted to keep the fire
Sunder control, but it kept getting away from him. Volunteer firefighters, along with the Liberty County Sheriff's Office,
responded and juggled their efforts between several hot spots over an approximate quarter mile area. They even-
tually extinguished the fire, only to have it reignite later in the day at the mobile home. Fortunately, the home was
got occupied and no one was injured.

put his hand through the window and tried
to unlock it. When he couldn't get it open,
she said he began hitting her with the ax

The Counselor Convicts of
Righteousness
S Text: John 16:8-10
When you know that something is
..rong' arn1 ,,u ,:, ii anyway, do you know
.lri- tba, i. irin- iri you get deep down?
:Tri :. the convicting power of the Holy.
Tre Holy Spirit convicts us of our sins.
He even convicts the unbeliever to sway.
him to believe.
The Holy Spirit also convicts the
believer of what is right. In the same way
that we feel bad about something that we
'should not do, the believer can have a
.ljrrnrn conviction about what we should
Trie Christian life is not just about
avoiding evil. It is also about doing right.
4God wants us to "do good works, which
[He] prepared in advance for us to do
(NIV)."
That is why the Christian can say he is
truly free. God frees us from the bondage
of sin and enables us to do what is right.
What is it that we are supposed to do?
The Holy Spirit guides and directs us:into
*all truth, revealing to us what it is we are
supposed to do:
We can be convicted about doing
things like turning the other cheek, tithing,
or telling the truth. We can also be con-
victed of things like teaching a Sunday
school class, taking a pot of soup to a sick
person, :or p,,nrin. the outside of the
church. In fact, we can even be convicted
about which car to buy or when to call up
a friend.
God intends us to lead effective, pro-
ductive lives, doing things that are -,giri II
we will be sensitive to the voice of the
Holy Spirit, we do not have to wonder
-what those things are..
Even though Jesus is "where you can
,see Me no longer," we can still learn from
Him. -We can learn to recognize the voice
,:.i ire Holy Spirit. We can listen to Him tell *
ius what we are supposed to do.

Building One Up
Romans 15:2
"Mending Wall," is one of Robert
Frost's most famous poems, it describes
an experience that he and his neighbor
had at their homes. Each year the two of
them would meet on a pre-arranged date
to walk the property line and repair the
stone wall between their properties. The
stones balanced on top of ne another to
form the barrier, fell down in places
because of the frozen ground in winter
and required yearly rebuilding.
Frost rightly said, in essence some
things there just doesn't love a wall. That
honestly wants it down. It seemed that all
of nature resented that artificial barrier
and sent a frozen ground swell under the
wall to topple the stones and leave huge
gaps. Frost said,t hat unseen force was
probably right.
What about the walls people always
build between each other that form artifi-
cial relationship barriers. Many times they
are placed so long ago that the people
involved cannot even remember their
original purpose. Perhaps it was some-
one's failings, someone's stand, or some
insult that caused the wall to go up.
Whatever the reason, Jesus doesn't
love a wall and wants it down. If we
always follow the scripture, we will build
up our neighbors, not an invisible wall.
We should bear with one another, please
one another, encourage one another, love.
one another, understand one another and
preserve the spirit of unity that will honor
Christ.
Remember, "Blessed is the influence
of one truth, loving human soul on anoth-
er."- George Eliot

onded the motion. The motion carried.

Stevens addressed the Council concern-
ing rezoning of property. After a brief dis-
cussion, the property did not need to be
rezoned.
Next was the discussion on the heli-
copter billing. Fire Chief Ben Hall
addressed the Council concerning this
issue. Mr. Hall stated they will not be
responding to all the helicopter calls. Mr.
Hall feels that there will probably be
around 20 calls that will be responded to,

of good standing. There was a lengthy

look into refunding the deposits and
address this at the next regular meeting.
Ms. Peacock also requested the Council
check into budget billing. It was the con-
sensus of the Council for the billing to not
change.
Ms. Peacock also asked if the Council
was going to help the Citizens with the
utility bills this month since the bills were
higher than usual. Councilman Tomlinson
made a motion to waive the late fees for
this month and, average the number that
is over and above the number that was
used last year and average it over a 3
month period; this is to include electric
and gas. Councilman Bailey seconded
the motion. The motion carried.
The Assistant City Manager updated
the Council on the Tree Trimming project.
Marc stated the project should be com-
pleted by the end of January.
Next, Councilwoman Boyd questioned'
why the money market account was
moved from The Bank to the S.B.A.
account. The City Manager/Engineer
informed Councilwoman Boyd that he
was following instructions from the
Council. Councilman Tomlinson stated
that the Council instructed the money to.
be moved if rates started moving higher.
The City Manager/Engineer and Finance
Director informed the Council that the
interest rates with S.B.A. went higher than
the interest rate earned at The Bank. The
Bank was contacted and was told what
S.B.A. rate was and asked if they could
beat it. The Bank could not beat it so the
monies were moved to get the higher rate,
as previously instructed by the Council.
After a lengthy 'discussion, Councilman
Bailey instructed the Finance Director to
see if The Bank can match the rate that
S.B.A. is currently at and if so, move the
money back. If The Bank can not match
the rate of S.B.A. then leave'the money
with S.B.A. Councilman Bailey instructed
the Finance Director to get quotes from
other Financial Institutions to address at
the February Regular Council meeting.
Councilman Bailey made a motion to
transfer the money back Irovided they
are willing to match the rate as of tomor-
row. Move the money-back and shop for
a 6 month rate on 2.5 million on a CD and


that it require a vote of the Council to
change the CD. Councilman Tomlinson
seconded the motion. The motion carried.
The Finance director informed the Council
The Bank will only verify one signature.
The Council can make a rule for the City
to follow regarding three signatures, but
The Bank will only verify one signature.
This item will be on, February agenda.
The finance director will get quote from
other financial institutions and present to
the Council at the February meeting.
Councilman Jackson questioned the
utility bills. Councilman Jackson wanted
to know if there was a rate difference
between South River Street and across
Highway 20. The Revenue Officer and

the civilians in and around the

The faires, generally lasting
three days, became home to itin-

wives and children; you create a
frontier celebration with. the
sights and smells unlike any
other activity.
