If you received an unusual

"I was almost hit over here at

remarks. "I was almost hit by
somebody coming from Panama
City, they were going east. I saw
a police officer over at The Bank
and said, 'Did you see that? That
was me. Some of it could have
been my fault, but some of it
could have been the other driver's
fault because they were speeding.
If a traffic light had been there, it
would have stopped them.'"

Angela Howard, a Clarksville mom accused of child neglect, is speaking
out about her case. She is shown here with her oldest son, David Alec.


region, telling her side of the
story.
The County Record interviewed
SAngela Monday afternoon and
she described years of dealings
with DCF.
Growing up in Panama City,
Angela says she became pregnant
with David Alec when she was 19.
She and his father were engaged,
but after a short time living with
his family, she decided to move
out of what she considered an
1tnsafe environment for her child.
She says she never received any
child .support after Alec was
around two years old.
After leaving the home she
considered unsafe, Angela says
her problems with DCF began.
She alleges Alec's paternal grand-
mother turned her in for abuse.
"In her eyes, I destroyed her rela-
tionship with her son," Angela
alleges,
Howard says the grandmoth-
er's abuse claim was unfounded
and -the case was closed. She
went on to meet another man and
became pregnant with Caleb in
2003. When she opted not. to
marry his father, the man report-
edly married someone else within
a few months. At some point,
Howard called the abuse hotline,
to make a report against the cou-
ple. She alleges they, in turn,
tiled a similar report against her,
accusing her of using drugs, not
cleaning her house in four years,
and striking one of the children.
Howard says a DCF casework-
er visited her home to investigate.
She said the caseworker ordered
her to have a urinalysis. When
she went for the appointment,
she says the caseworker had
never sent the referral over order-
ing the test. "Over a five year peri-
od, I've taken urinalysis on sever-
al occasions due to [Alec's pater-
nal grandmother's] allegations,"

Stress Management
If your shoulders are aching,
your head is throbbing, and that
last nerve is frayed, this week's
column is for you! My Aunt Carol
passed along this little piece of
wisdom on how to manage stress
in your life and it's pretty darn
good advice.
A lecturer, when explaining
stress management to an audi-
ence, raised a glass of water and
asked, "How heavy is this glass of
Water?" Answers called out
hanged from 20g to 500g. The lec-
turer replied, "The absolute
weight doesn't matter. It depends
on how long you try to hold it."
"If I hold it for a minute, that's
iot a problem. If I hold it for an
hour, I'll have an ache in my right
arm. If I hold it for a day, you'll
have to call an ambulance. In
each case, it:s the same weight,
but the longer I hold it, the heav-
ier it becomes."
4 He continued, "And that's the
Way it is with stress manage-
i-ent. If we carry our burdens all
fhe time, sooner or later, as the
burden becomes increasingly
leavy, we won't be able to carry


on. As with the glass of water, you
have to put it down for a while
and rest before holding it again.
When we're refreshed, we can
carry on with the burden.
"So, before you return home
tonight, put the burden of work
down. Don't carry it home. You
can pick it up tomorrow.
Whatever burdens you're carry-
ing now, let them down for a
moment if you can." "Relax; pick
them up later after you've rested.
Life is short. Enjoy it!
And then he shared some ways
of dealing with the burdens of
life:
Accept that some days
you're the pigeon, and some days
you're the statue.
Always keep your words soft
and sweet, just in case you have
to eat them.
Always read stuff that will
make you look good if you die in
the middle of it.
Drive carefully. It's not only
cars that can be recalled by their
maker.
If you can't be kind, at least
have the decency to be vague.
If you lend someone $20 and

High school and college students
from around the country come to
Nature Conservancy preserves

"We have come to depend on
these groups to assist in impor-
tant restoration work on many of
our preserves. We could not
accomplish as much without
their willing hands, strong backs


and enthusiasm. In turn, being a
part of this program enhances
the students' educational experi-
ence by learning about the value
of biodiversity and teamwork. For
many students, it inspires a life-
long appreciation of conservation.
In twenty years, they can come
back to these sites and see the
thriving ecosystems they have
helped to restore," said Jim
Murrian, the Conservancy's
director of conservation and
stewardship.

Scouts enjoy canoe trip on river


SThe weather was perfect
Saturday for being outdoors and
it was an even better day to be
lout in a canoe on the beautiful
!Chipola River. That is where you
would have found your local Boy
Scouts of America Troop 137
from Blountstown. The Scouts
-and Scouters started out their
Ilorning bright and early for a
fun time on the river. They trav-
.::led to the end of Bailey Cemetery
Road to an area south of Look
and Tremble on the Chipola River
:'-ihere permission was secured to
launch their canoes. They began
'with a short class by Scoutmaster
Tom Aycock on canoe safety,
'which was geared toward how not
o flip your canoe and take a cold
'swim in the river and, how to
*inaneuver your canoe around
properly in the water. After get-
ting into their canoes without
~flipping' them over, the Scouts
Began learning how to paddle
Around the river very quickly and
started to negotiate down the
Chipola.
- The boys quickly began to look
like expert canoers out there pad-
:dling around and enjoying nature
.t its finest along the river.
. fortunately, or unfortunately,
l hey didn't get to see any gators
,or snakes on this trip. They
'Iade a couple of stops along the
. ay to get out and look at the
Thousands of wild Easter Lilies in
full bloom and then again to
limb on a reportedly thousand
year old oak tree that was huge
around the base of it. They also
scouted out and secured. permis-
sion for the perfect overnight
campsite on a sandy beach head
along the way. They will return
to this area in May for another
canoe trip that will include swim-
ming, fishing, cooking their fish
and an overnight campout. They
finished their trip at the bridge at
Highway 20, but many of the
boys said they were ready "right
now" to go do it again.
SSome other upcoming outdoor
activities of the Boy Scouts are,-
Junior Leader Training, a fishing
trip to a beautiful area lake in


March, a camporee and a swim-
ming trip (both of which are up in
Alabama), and also a trip to Wild
Adventures Theme Park in April.
In the month of June, several of
the scouts will be going for a week
of camp to the "one of a kind in
the country" Woodlore Camping
School. The entire Troop will
then be traveling to Wallwood
Scout reservation for a week of
summer camp in late June.
The Scouts would like to thank
our community for their contin-
ued support of your strong youth
program here in our area.
Anyone wishing to offer their
much needed support to your
local youth program can contact

,Wildcat baseball team


iby Kelli Peacock

' It was a rocky start for the
"Altha Wildcat baseball team as
'they put the bats in motion and
finished the first week of the sea-
-son at 0-3.
S"We started last Monday
against Robert F. Munroe and
they're 10th ranked in the Big
Bend," says Altha Coach Arthur
,Faurot. 'Tad Scott, a ninth grad-
-er, started for us pitching. Since
it was the first game of the year,
wve had him on a pitch count of
,50 pitches. When he came out,
the score was tied 0-0."
Next up on the mound was
another ninth grader, Noah Byler,
who pitched the remainder of the
game. "Munroe scored three runs
off Noah," says Faurot. "We made
a, couple of key errors and they
beat us 3-0."
Despite the loss, Coach Faurot
was pleased with the team's
effort. "We played well, we just
couldn't score," he remarks.
'They're not bad and we just did-
n't get some key hits. But it was
a good spectator ball game."
Thursday brought 2A
Cottondale to town. The game
was tied 8-8 after the seventh
inning, but Cottondale brought in
four runs in the top of the. ninth
to claim a 12-8 victory.
"We hit the ball well, ran the
bases well, and made some great
defensive plays," Coach Faurot
notes. "Gary Chew, a left fielder,
made a great play to save some


runs.
Keith Kirkpatrick, anoti
ninth grader, started on t
mound for Altha. "He pitch
good," Coach Faurot points ou
After 67 pitches, Kirkpatr
was relieved by eighth grace
Tony Golden who pitched t
remainder of the game. "He
fine," says Coach Faurot. '"
only way Cottondale scored is
made a few errors mental a
playing errors."
The first district game of t
season was Friday night
Malone and the Cats were defe.
ed 11-1 in five innings.
"It was embarrassing," says
disappointed Coach Faur
"Everything that could go wror
did go wrong. We did not play w
at all from top to bottom. We g
one hit in the game and they g
four hits and scored 11 runs. N
walked eight, hit three, and ma

well at all."
Despite the rough beginnir
Coach Faurot is optimistic th
the tide will turn for the Wildca
this season. "We're a young tea
- we have one senior but
should have played better.

innings allowing 2 runs on 2
hits, .2 BB's and 7 strike outs.
"Brandon threw the ball very
well," he was on a 60 pitch count

hits.
On Thursday the JVTigers

gave the game to them on a cou-

Teacher Spotlight
In the teacher spotlight this week is
Mrs. Cindy Kirkpatrick.
Mrs. Kirkpatrick's favorite animal is a
Dachshund because this breed is unique-
ly short, but at the same time long; it does
not get very big and can be forever as
small as a puppy. Mrs. Kirkpatrick's dog is
named Chief Osceola Messer, Jr. Mrs.
Kirkpatrick said her dog is the cutest and
smartest dog; just ask any of her stu-
dents.
Mrs. Kirkpatrick also informed us that
her favorite. actor is Johnny Depp
because he has great acting skills, and he
makes a pirate outfit look GREAT!
Mrs. Kirkpatrick has been a teacher for
seven years, six at Altha and one at
Blountstown. She graduated from Chipola
,Junior College then FSU. Mrs. Kirkpatrick
says that she enjoys teaching because
she loves working with kids and seeing
them succeed throughout their school
years.
If Mrs. Kirkpatrick could give any
advice to her students it would be for them
to not give up and keep on trying their
hardest.
Welcome to BHS, Mrs. Kirkpatrick

Hidden Treasures
by
Ryan
McDougald

The Counselor Guides into All Truth
Text: John 16:12-13
Why does God choose not to reveal
our future? Why not lay out the big picture
so we will'know what to expect in life? ,
Following God is like walking across a
field at night. It is pitch black and you can't
see anything in front of you. The field has
all kinds of obstacles. There are bushes to
run into, holes to fall in, sticks to trip on,
snakes to avoid, and wild animals lurking
about.
The way is hard, but you still have to
cross the field at night. God supplies a
flashlight. All the light will do is shine
enough to see the step in front of you.
When you see the step in front of you, you
take that step and deal with obstacles one
at a time. You can't see across the held,
and you can't possibly know what lies
ahead. But once you take a step, you can
see enough to take another. By taking it
one step at a time, you cross the field.
Then you can look back and see how God
equipped you to handle every obstacle
that was in the way.
Jesus said, "I have much more to say
to you, more than you can now bear
(NIV)." If we could look at our life as a
whole and know at once all of the trouble
and trials we have to face, we would be
tempted to shrink back away from life. We
would be afraid to live it.
God, in His wisdom and mercy, only
gives us what we can handle at the time.
He allows us to see far enough ahead to
take a single step. When we take a step in
faith, He reveals the next one.
One day we find ourselves at the end
of life having made a successful journey
with the Lord. Who was it that guided us
every step of the way? The Spirit of Truth
indell;n'g the hean oil he believer lights
our way.
Ryan McDougald is a licensed,
ordained Free Will Baptist Minister host-
ing Bible study in the home. For more

Keep God Women's Day Mar. 13

In Your Heart at St. Mary's Church
S by Rev. R. W. Waterman St. Mary Missionary Baptist


Glory In The Cross
Galatians 6:14'
One dominating personality in history
was Napoleon who was probably one of
the greatest military geniuses of all time.
As he defeated army after army, his confi-
dence in himself grew and grew. It just
didn't seem as through he could be
defeated. He felt he didn't need anyone;
he was Napoleon, the great conqueror.
But as all self inflated conquerors
Napoleon met his Waterloo. His pride and
stubbornness was his downfall.
Throughout history there have been many
others who felt they were invincible. The
years became their enemy and they fell
finding that they did have feet of clay.
It's really amazing to see what individ-
uals place their confidence in. Athletes,
showpersons, politicians, wealth, power,
or whatever a person considers important
can become his god. Christ's death on
the cross freed us from this futile, empty
worship. People and all possessions fade
in importance, but we have a wonderful,
glorious, never ending eternity 'prepared
for us if we are ready. And friend that is
made possibly only by the Cross.
Years I spent in vanity and pride, car-
ing not my Lord was crucified. Knowing
not it was for me He died on Calvary. -
William R. Newell
May we all humble ourselves before
the Cross of Christ this Easter Season
and open our hearts to Him. Letting. Him
have His way in all our lives, in every way.
If we will do it, the blood shed on that
cross will wash our sins 3avy 3 an quill WIIl
disappear. Hf ir aln '. cane' our
hearts and make us free from l'he power
and bondage of sin. This ends the chris-
tians relationship to the world in which sin
and death reign.

the Salvation Army, American
Red Cross, United Jewish
Communities, Catholic Charities,
USA, National Council of the
Churches of Christ in the U.S.A.

grams in high-need areas around
the country.
A Local Board made up of a
former homeless individual, the
Salvation, Creek Indians, church-
es, Catholic Charities, and the
American Red Cross will deter-
mine how the funds awarded to
Calhoun County are to be distrib-
uted among the emergency food
and shelter program run by local
service organizations in the area.
The Local Board is responsible for
recommending agencies to
receive these funds and any addi-
tional funds available under this
phase of the program.
Under the terms of the grant

program office recorded a mes-
sage and, within minutes, local
residents in a five mile radius of
the crash were alerted to:be on
the lookout for the teens and to
call the Sheriffs Office if the spot-
ted them.
Sgt. Terry said he waited about
five minutes after the calls went
out and contacted the Sheriffs
Office dispatcher to see if any
calls had come in. "The phones
were ringing off the hook," he
tells The County Record, noting
that many residents called to see
what the message was all about
and if it was for real.
Sgt. Terry says he was amazed
at how fast the calls went out and
was impressed with the service.
"While I was talking to the guy
there, he got another call about a
missing five-year-old girl and had
to put our call on the back burn-
er," he says, adding, "If we ever
have a five-year-old missing and
I hope we don't but if we do and
people receive a call like this, I


U11,11111011171


know they will be out in the
streets looking and trying to help
find that child."
That is the primary reason the
Sheriffs Office is enthusiastic
about this service because every
minute counts when a child is
missing.

Angela Howard case


Howard tells The County Record.
"None of the tests came back with
anything but my prescription
medications."
Angela says the next problem
Occurred when she went to a
Panama City Winn Dixie and
pulled her Explorer into a no
parking zone and left it running.
She says one of her sons was in
the front seat in his car seat and
her mother was sleeping in the
backseat. She decided to leave
the car running while she picked
up a few items inside. When she
stepped out of her SUV, she says
a store attendant said she would
.watch the vehicle and make sure
it didn't get towed.
Minutes later, while she was in




Jacob-

allegedly crossed the center line
and hit a 2003 Cadillac. head-on.
Attaway was ejected from his car
as it flipped over. The driver of the
Cadillac, Erna Dean' Edwards,
68, of Oxford, Alabama, was
killed instantly. Her three pas-
sengers sustained minor injuries.
Just nine months ago, Jacob
was embarking on life as an adult
when he graduated with the
Class of 2004 at Altha Public
School. He was currently working
in the construction industry as, a
welder's helper.
When his friends remember
Jacob, they are unanimous about
one thing: he had an incredible
sense of humor.
"He was just a real outgoing,
funny person to be around,"
Joseph Hall tells The County
Record. "He was always telling
jokes and making people laugh.
He was just a friend to everyone."
Pamela Russell agrees. "He
was really funny,",she remarks.
"He was always smiling."
"He never had an enemy,"
adds Juiett Melvin.
"Whenever I think of Jacob, I
think about how he was always
there to make us laugh, especial-
ly in Spanish class," Lori
Goodman recalls. "He always
made us and Miss Henegar laugh
no matter what was going on."
Family arnd friends gathered at
Travelers Rest Freewill Baptist
Church in Clarksville Saturday
afternoon to pay tribute to Jacob.
Following the service, he was laid.
to rest in the church cemetery.
Jacob leaves behind his par-
ents, Michelle and Kenneth
Waldroff of Altha, and Andy and
Lori Attaway of Clarksville, along
with a sister, Brianna Attaway,
three stepbrothers, a stepsister,
several grandparents, and his
girlfriend, Natalie States. His
complete obituary appears in this
issue.

explained that it was her vehicle
and she was checking out, but
says the manager insisted she
move it right then. Angela says
the manager went outside, then
came in and told her it was illegal
to leave a child alone in a car. 'I
told her to go out there and take
a closer look," letting her know
there was an adult in the car.
Angela alleges the manager
scolded the store attendant
watching her vehicle, took down
her tag number, and reported her
for child neglect. She says this
resulted in the first dependency
petition being filed in court by
DCF.


When the case ended up in
court, Angela says the manager
stated she 'couldn't see in the
back of the vehicle to tell if an
adult was inside. "She said David
Alec was not in a car seat and
that wasn't true," says Angela.
"She described the interior of the
car as beige and green, but it's
.gray. However, David Alec's car
seat is beige' and green."
In a home inspection by DCF,
Howard says caseworkers had
reported finding hazardous con-
ditions in the home, but she says
the court disagreed. 'The judge
had to tell them stacks of folded
clothes on the bed and toys on
the floor were not hazardous con-
ditions," Angela remarks. "He told
them drug abuse was not found-
ed and was unproven. He did


find, on one occasion, for less
than 10 minutes, I left my chil-i
dren unattended in a locked, run-
ning vehicle," noting that
because her mother was asleep in
the car at Winn Dixie, the chil-
dren were considered as being
left alone.
"That's all this has been
about," Angela states. 'That's the
only petition allegations that were
filed until just recently."
Howard will speak out about
the most recent charges against
her in next week's edition of The
County Record.
Due to the fact that DCF is not
allowed to comment on their.
cases, and court records are
sealed in dependency cases, The
County Record emphasizes that
this is strictly Angela Howard's
side of the story.
