Over 1000 bicyclists visit
An estimated 1100 bicyclists from across the nation converged in Blountstown Monday during a stop on the "Red
Hills to the Sea" Ride. The event, sponsored by the Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce and managed through
Bike Florida and Share the Road Campaign out of Gainesvllle, began in Monticello and ended in Apalachicola.
Riders began arriving -arly Monday and trickled in throughout the day. They could be seen cruising through town or
walking around the community, spending many dollars in area restaurants and businesses. In addition, several non-
profit groups, including Girl Scouts and the Calhoun County Senior Citizens Associalion, sold food during the event
for fundraisers. Riders were also treated to an afternoon of activities at the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement. The cam-
pus of Blountstown High School was transformed into a campground for the riders. Although some slept in the gym,
hundreds of others popped tents on the grounds. The County Record spoke with riders who said the average age
of participants is 55 and they come from as far away as California and Utah. Early Tuesday, the group took off for
Apalachicola, but Calhoun Countians hope to see them again next spring! Look inside this issue for more highlights.

by Kelli Peacock
After the recent arrest of a sexual offender accused of mur-
dering nine-year-old Jessica Lunsford of Citrus County, The
County Record is informing our readers about being aware of

istry from the Calhoun County Sheriffs Office website. To
access the registry on the internet, go to www.cal-
hounsheriff.com and scroll down the page. There is a green
shaded block on the left side of the page and the last item on
the list is "Sexual Offender Search" click here. You will then
be linked to the FDLE Sexual Predator/Offender Registry.

page has several blanks you can fill out if you're looking for a
particular person. If you'd like to see the entire list of
Calhoun County sexual offenders, just go to the county line
and put in Calhoun. After about a minute, you will see the
first of four pages of photos (page numbers are shown at the

number). The address for the offender is listed, as well as the
date that person was added to the registry. You can click on
the photo and get a flyer detailing the charges against the
individual. At press time, there were 32 sexual offenders in
Calhoun County.

Cynthia Williams
a one-day trial held last Tuesday
at the Calhoun County
Courthouse.
According to a Calhoun
County Sherldfs Office report, the
case began when Lt. Henry
Hamlin from Liberty County
brought Williams to the Calhoun
County Jail around 9:15 p:m.
Dec. 21 to be booked in on an
outstanding warrant for failure to
appear in court. As Dep. Billy
Strawn was taking her informa-
tion,' Williams reportedly gave a
different date of birth and social
security number from the ones
on the warrant. She further stat-
ed her last name was not
Williams, but Stacey. Lt. Hamlin
advised that the woman had
given Dep. Strawn the wrong
information and her name was
Williams.
Upon signing the paperwork,
Williams reportedly signed
Cynthia and wrote a "W', then
stopped and signed Stacey. When
Dep. Strawn questioned her
about it, Williams reportedly
became agitated and began curs-
ing.
After more problems with the
signature, Williams was seated
next to Dep. Strawn at the book-
ing table when she coughed,
allegedly on purpose, in his direc-
tion. Dep. Strawn told her not to
cough on him and she reportedly
coughed once again at him; hard-
er than before. He warned her


turned toward him, leaned across
the table, and coughed harder in
his face. Dep. Strawn then got up
and tried to prevent Williams
from coughing on him and she
then allegedly began fighting him,
swinging arid kicking. Dep.
Strawn then took her to the floor
and held her down as she alleged-
ly continued to kick and swing,
along with trying to cough and
spit on him.
Deputy Jared Nichols arrived
to assist and used his Taser to
restrain Williams who continued
to resist. Deputy Bliss Moreau
then arrived and also used his
Taser to get Williams to comply.
They were finally able to get
handcuffs on her and place her in
a holding cell.

Woman veers truck DUI, pot possession


into deputy's lane,
arrested for marijuana
A woman who swerved into a deputy's
lane ended up behind bars on drug
charges last Wednesday following an
early morning traffic stop.
Arrested was Angela Kay Tindall, 28,
of Blountstown, charged with possession
Sof less than 20 grams of marijuana, viola-
tion of conditional release, and driving
while license suspended or revoked with
knowledge.
According to the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office, Deputy Bliss Moreau was
northbound on SR 71 near Magnolia
Church Road when a southbound pickup
veered into his lane. Dep. Moreau had to
take evasive action to avoid a head-on
Collision, then turned around, closed in on
the vehicle, and pulled it over.
During the traffic stop, Tindall, who
was the driver, reportedly stated she had
spilled a soft drink in her lap which caused
her to swerve. Dep. Moreau soon learned
that Tindall's license had been suspended
for failure to pay fines. Although she stat-
ed she had taken care of the tickets the
week before, she was unable to provide
documentation.
While placing Tindall under arrest,
Dep. Moreau smelled burnt marijuana on
tler and inside the vehicle. A search
turned up an Altoids chewing gum tin can
above the driver's side sun visor contain-
ipg marijuana wrapped in cellophane.

A traffic stop early Saturday landed a
Marianna man behind bars on drug
charges, as well as driving under the influ-
ence.
Arrested was David Wayne Walters,
46, charged with possession of less than
20 grams of marijuana and DUI.
According to the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office, Deputy Nick Keller was
standing on the roadside, working a rou-
tine traffic stop on CR 167 just after 3
a.m., when a Chevy pickup drove past
him on the white line, failing to move or
slow down, and nearly struck the deputy.
Dep. Keller quickly concluded his traf-
fic stop and went after the vehicle. As he
closed in on the truck, he noticed the vehi-
cle crossing the center line. Upon pulling
the truck over, he spoke with Waiters, who
was behind the wheel, and reported
smelling a strong odor of alcohol. Walters
reportedly stumbled out of the truck and
failed a field sobriety test. After placing
him under arrest, Walters was searched
and reportedly volunteered that he had a
small bag of marijuana and turned it over
to the deputy.
Walters was booked into the Calhoun
County Jail and given a conditional
Release later that day.

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


"They did talk to him just to see if
he had any contact with her over
the past week." Lagergren tells
The County Record she is unsure
if Brunson was able to provide
any substantial information.
Brunson and two other men,
described as persons of interest,
were reportedly questioned the
day after the bodies of Danielle
Baker, 19, and her three sons,
Amarion Baker, 1, Amad Baker,
3, and Aaron Baker, three weeks
old, were discovered. In addition
to Brunson, the fathers of two of
the murdered children have since


been interviewed.
"[Investigators have talked toj
anyone that knows her or had
contact with her," says
Lagergren. "I hate to say a person
of interest, but of course in a sit-
uation like this, you always go
back to the last 48 or 24 hours of
who had contact with her. Every
stone is being looked under."
Lagergren emphasized that
there are no suspects in custody.
"Everyone we've talked to has
been released."
Authorities have not provided
details on the cause of death in


the case. A press conference was'
scheduled for Tuesday afternoon
at Marianna City Hall (details'
unavailable at press time).
A $5000 reward has been
offered for information leading to
the arrest of the person or per-.
sons responsible for the murders.
Anyone with information in the
case is urged to call'
CrimeStoppers at 850/526-5000.:
Callers can remain anonymous,:
Should a tip lead.to an arrest, the:
reward can be presented private;
ly by a CrimeStoppers official tq.
guarantee anonymity. :

Lynette Denham. Monazia was
presented to the Pageant Judging
Committee by her grandfather,
Bro. Don Wilson who described
Monazia as self-willed, aggres-
sive, alert, and one who relishes
in attention' seeking. Monazia
was asked the question, "If family
needed the $500.00 scholarship
stipend awarded to you, would
you give it, to them?" Monazia's
reply was, "I wouldn't want to
.give it to them. I'd talk to them
about it, and I'd rather use it on
my education, but it is hard to
answer that." "I guess I would if
I had to.":
The crowd roared as Monazia
recited, "So What If I Am A Black
'Woman" as recited by Arby Davis
from the Jenny Jones Show.

Keep God

In Your Heart
by Rev. R. W. Waterman
He Is Risen
Matthew 28:7
Here is the great truth: 'He is risen."
Here is the great truth to share:-"Go quick-
ly, and tell." Here is the great truth to
experience: "ye shall see him."
It happened then and changed lives. It
happens still and still changes lives as the
truth of Jesus is heard, shared, ard expe-
rienced.
Harold Bonner told of Rich and Sally
who were searching for God. A friend
suggested they visit their church. pThe
Holy Spirit ministered to their spiritual
hunger. On a Thursday afternoon in her
home Sally asked-Christ into her life; a
few days later after the Sunday evening
service Rich asked the pastor to come to
their home and he, too, accepted Jesus
as Savior. It-was the grand beginning of a
whole new life.
Involved in the life of the church, one
by one the children came to know Christ.
For over 10 years Rich has been Sunday
School superintendent with Sally at his
side. The children are all active in their
churches.
That is what the goodnews of the liv-
ing, risen Savior can do as it is heard,
shared,and experienced. Ours it is to
hear and to share that others may know
Him too. He is Risen and lives today.

Gas prices reach all-time high


ItKelft PeacQuWc
as prices have been ,.*.ing
'aeros the country and hit an all-
itlme hglih In Calhoun County this
wrvk at 8 [5 prr ,:..llin for regu-
S lar unleaded i' o ;: r supreme,
At press time, the wrbsite
SasPrtceWatche.om reported the
hitihet prices in the country
w'ee (iunid in Malibu, CA where
regular unleaded is selling for
S 3,.05 per gallon. The lowest price
was discovered in McAfee, NJ
I where it's $1,75. The national
Average s $2.12.
" The reason for the hike at the
pump is obviously due to rising
costs of crude oil that hit over
,57 per barrel Tuesday morning.
,, "I know that crude oil went up
- kind of hit record high," says
Joe Wood, General Manager at
oennett'Eutbanks Oil Company in
blountstown. "It's coming on the
Spring time: and that always
pauses gas to go up."
SWood says there is no way to
Predict how high prices will go,
but points out, "Everything you
gead says it's going up even high-
Fr. but you don't know. It
depends on what happens in the
.Iddle East. If crude oil goes
town. then gas will godown."
SMany local citizens may be
rDondering why gas across the
~rver in Bristol has been selling
4rr up to seven cents less per ga,-
"Ion. "There's a new station open
and a new station can sell gas
P below cost for a period of time,"
Voood explains. "We have to meet
their price or we'll lose business.
,After awhile that store will have
So sell above cost."
SWalMart shoppers from
t.alhoun County often remark
boutt the deals they get at the
'Murphy USA pump outside the
I rtarianna store. "WalMart has a
different deal," Wood reports.
-rThey're tied in with a refinery so
,they take out the middle man.
plus, their volume is so much
More It's like at a truck'stop."
* When gas prices climbed over
8 2 per gallon last year, Attorney
General Charlie Crist set out to'
investigatee.
- According to Crist's website,
-fhere are many factors affecting
kgas prices that are beyond the
-.uthority of the Attorney
.General's Office. but the office
'hoes play an important role in


ensuring the marketplace oper-
ates in the best interest of con-
sumers. In cases where evidence
points to collusion to tix the price
of gas, the Attorney General's
Otllic has filed lawsuits against
the offending companies.
Crist reports that gasoline is a
classic supply and demand com-
modity. Higher usage normally
translates into somewhat lower
supply and higher demand, ulti-
mately leading to higher prices.
This is especially true in the sum-
mer months.
According to the Energy
Information Administration (EIA),
an arm of the U.S. Department of
Energy, the price paid by con-
sumers can be traced to four
major components: Crude Oil,
49%; Federal/State/Local Taxes,
26%; Refining, 15%; and
Marketing/Distribution/Profits,
10%.
Even with high gas prices,
there are ways to save on fuel.
Here's some tips The County
Record found online at
www.fueleconomy.gov:
V Drive Sensibly. Aggressive
driving (speeding, rapid accelera-
tion and braking) wastes gas. It
can lower your gas mileage by 33
percent at highway speeds and by
5 percent around town. Sensible
driving is also safer for you and
others, so you may, save more
than gas money. Fuel Economy
Benefit: 5-33%. Equivalent
Gasoline Savings: $0.07-
$0.49/gallon
S Observe the Speed Limit.
Gas mileage decreases rapidly at
speeds above 60 mph. Each 5
mph you drive over 60 mph is like
paying an additional $0.10 per
gallon for gas. Observing the
speed limit is also safer. Fuel
Economy Benefit: 7-23%.
Equivalent Gasoline Savings:
$0.10-$0.34/gallon.
V Avoid Excessive Idling.
Idling gets 0 miles per gallon.
Cars with larger engines typically
waste more gas at idle than do
cars with smaller engines.
V Use Cruise Control. Using
cruise control on the highway
helps you maintain a constant
speed and, in most cases, will
save gas.
V Use Overdrive Gears. When
you use overdrive gearing, your
car's engine speed goes down.
This saves gas and reduces
engine wear.

BHS lifters host meet


iby Coach Bobby Johns
The 2005 BHS Tiger
:Weightlifting team has been in
full swing now for four weeks and
'the Tigers are trying to continue
'their winning ways.
SIn the first meet of the season,
:BHS defeated Chipley and Port
;St. Joe. The score was BHS -
'449. Chipley 32, Port St. Joe -
25. Individual winners for BHS
.were Jay McClellan, Josh Segers,
Arsenio Ivory, Josh Lee, Bart
"Nichols, Lee Shelton, and .Zack
'Smith. It was a good meet for us
fand we began the season in solid
fashion.
The following week, the Tigers
'tra eled to Wakulla for a dual
meet and came up one point


short. Wakulla dominated the
lower weight classes and won by
a score of 45-44. This was rio sur-
prise because we :have no lifters
in the 119 class and only one
lifter in the 129 class. It is hard to
win when you give up 13 points
before you ever begin lifting.
Individual winners at that
meet were Bart Nichols, Corey
Silcox, Lee Shelton, and Zack
Smith.
Later that week, the Tigers
traveled to Live Oak 'for the
Suwannee Inmitational. Last sea-
son BHS finished second to 2A
State Champion Spruce Creek.
This year the Tigers finished sec-
ond again to 2A Bucholz High
School. There were 15 teams
competing in the meet. Our lifters


had great days, but once again
we just did not have enough
lifters in the lower weight classes.
Bucholz dominated the 119, 129,
139, and 154 classes. BHS did
great in the middle and larger
weight classes, but just could not
overcome the lost points.
Individual winners were
Arsenio Ivory, Josh Lee, and Bart
Nichols. Arsenio Ivory, a Junior,
lifted 315 pounds in the clean
and jerk. The State Record in his
weight class is 315. Arsenio tied
the State Record with his lift, but
he must complete that lift at the
State Meet for it to count in the
record books.
Last week, the Tiger lifters
traveled to Godby for the Big
Bend Invitational. BHS finished a


strong second to Godby and
again paid for the lackof depth in
the small classes.
Individual winners were
Arsenio Ivory, Bart Nichols, and
Lee Shelton. This was the first
time BHS had competed in the
Big Bend meet and it was a great
showing for all of our team.
We had a couple of very
notable lifters who did not win
their classes. Corey Silcox had a
season best 620 total. Corey had
a solid 300 clean, which was a
personal best for him. Chaz johns
had a great day with a 620 total.
Isaac Kent placed third with a'
605 total and Zack Smith showed

his strength with a 390 pound
bench press. It was a great day
for our lifters and placed us one
step closer to repeating as State
Champions.
Monday brought the first State
Qualifier and things went about
as bad as they possibly could.
Very few of our lifters had good
days.
Justin Godwin and T.J. Alsop
looked good with 365 totals.
Arsenio Ivory posted a 655 total,
which is 50 pounds better than
the State Champion total in his.
weight class last season. He also
clean and jerked a State Record
315 pounds once again. Josh Lee
posted a solid 590 total in the
183 class: Bart Nichols had a
respectable day with a 665 total
with an amazing 340 pound
clean. Corey Silcox had a solid
day with a 615 total and Chaz
Johns finished the day with a
season best 630 total.
Some of our other lifters,, who
must come through if we are to
win a second State
Championship, had terrible days.
There are two qualifiers remain-
ing this season and we must have
better performances from them if
we are going to repeat.
The remaining meets this sea-
son are all qualifiers at Godby
High School. The State Meet is set
for April 23rd in Gainesville. If
we can find a way to get the rest
of our top lifters back in the
groove, we should have a chance
to make another run. We hope to
see you in Gainesville. GO

To Find God's Will,
Be a Living Sacrifice
Text: Romans 12:1
A woman prayed about taking a vaca-
tion to the Bahamas ,one night before
going to bed. When she woke up the next
morning, her digital clock read, "7:47."
She took that as a sign she was supposed
to fly to the Bahamas on a 747.
How do you find God's will? The first
thing. is to offer yourself completely to
God. Tell God that you will go anywhere
He wants you to go, do anything He wants
you to do, and do it however He wants it
done.
Paul is alluding to the sacrifice called
the Burnt Offering. It was offered at the
Temple of God in the Old Testament.
When a person went to the Temple to sac-
rifice the Burnt Offering, he understood
that it was a dedicatory offering.
The worshipper chose the best male
sheep, goat, or bull from his flock or herd.
Poor people could offer a dove or pigeon.
The animal always had to be unblemished
without defect. God wants our best.
The worshipper washed the animal in
a pool outside the Temple and then pre-
sented it to God before the priest in the
Temple. He laid his hands on the animal's
head making the animal his substitute.
The animal's throat was cut. The blood
was sprinkled on the sides'of the altar.
Then the entire animal was burned on the
altar. As the smoke rose to heaven, it
symbolized the worshipper devoting him-
self entirely to God.
Paul said, "To offer your bodies as liv-
ing sacrifices." We are to give ourselves
completely in life to Christ. Christ gave
Himself as a sacrifice to save our souls
from Hell. He bought us at a great price.
In view of His mercy for us, we should
give ourselves back to God. We must be
willing to do whatever God wants us to do.

Mallory works

recovery team


at Speed Week

John Mallory, owner of Mallory
Towing and Recovery in
Blountstown, was rubbing elbows
with race car drivers when he served
on the Race Recovery Team for
Miller Industries during Speed Week
in Daytona last month. In addition to
working during the Daytona 500,
Mallory provided wrecker service
during the Gatorade 150s leading up
to the big race. Race fans may recall
one particular wreck Mallory worked
that occurred in lap 36 of the
Gatorade 150 when Kevin Harvick
bumped Jimmie Johnson (pictured).
This led to a major wreck involving
Rusty Wallace, Scott Riggs, Jeremy
Mayfield, Mark Martin, Joe,
Nemechek, Dave Blaney, Jimmie
Johnson, Kevin Harvick. "I was the
first one out of the truck and Kevin
was behind me," says Mallory. "By
the time I turned around, Kevin was
gone When we took the car back to
Ihe garage area. people surrounded

Through March 20, 2005
2005 Nextel Cup


Please Note: There is no Nextel Cup
race this weekend.
There is an increasing number of drivers who believe
NASCAR's shorter rear spoiler/softer Goodyear tire pack-
age has not improved the quality of racing this season. The
rules were instituted to reduce aero-push, theoretically mak-
ing it easier to race side-by-side and pass. "The cars don't
drive very well. To be honest with you, they drive terrible,"
said Nextel Cup regular Jamie McMurray. In Las Vegas, at
the UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400, Cup crew chief Chad Knaus
was fined S35,000 and suspended two races after the roof
height on Johnson's No. 48 Chevrolet Monte Carlo was
found to be too low. In addition to Knaus' penalties, Johnson
was docked 25 driver's points dropping him from the lead
in the points standings. "Everybody is still pushing the enve-
lope," Kyle Petty said. From the earliest days of racing, dri-
vers and mechanics have always looked for ways to
increase speeds without running afoul of the inspectors. The
huge penalties handed down by NASCAR in the past weeks
are likely to have little impact on the culture in the garage.
"Everybody knows everybody does it," the King said. "Some
get caught. Some don't. That's part of the magic of racing:
trying to get away with every little bit you can."'


The Nashville Superspeedway is one of the newer
tracks used by NASCAR, being constructed in 2000. It
holds the distinction of being one of only three tracks
used that is completely concrete. This track is not used
by the Nextel Cup teams, holding races only for the
Busch Series and the Craftsmen Truck Series.

Biography:
Jimmy Spencer captured his first racing win in the.
Late Model division at Port Royal (Pa.) Speedway in,
1976, and won Rookie of the Year honors from the
legendary Shangri-La (N.Y.) Speedway in the asphalt
Modified division three years later. Shangri-La'
became the site of his back-to-back Modified track
championships in 1982 and 1983. Having already
been given the nickname "Mr. Excitement" for his
aggressive driving style, Spencer solidified his reputa-'
lion by winning consecutive national Winston.
Modified .tiles in 1986 and 1987. With the Modified
ranks conquered, Spencer made his jump to the,
NASCAR Busch Series in 199 -- the same year in
which he captured his first win at Hickory (N.C.) Motor,
Speedway. He won two more Busch Series races in
1992. By that time he had already established himself
as one of the premier up-and-comers in the Cup cr-'
cuit Spencer captured his first top-five finish in a Cup"
race in 1991, finished a career-best 12th in the cham-'
pionship points standings in 1993, and claimed his
two wins in 1994. Spencer eamed his first win in the
SPepsi 400' at Daytona International Speedway, and
then backed it up with a win in the Diehard 500 at,
Talladega Superspeedway a few months later. In .
2003, Spencer became part of a select group of dri-
vers who have won in all three of NASCAR's premier
series: He won in his first ever Craftsman Truck Series'"
start, at New Hampshire in September.

Chipola fans raise $40K for national tourney
Dozens of key supporters, alumni and friends raised some $40,000 to help the Chipola Men's and Women's bas-
ketball teams attend the National NJCAA Tournaments in Kansas underway this week. Chipola Appreciation Club
board member Robert Trammell, who spearheaded the fundraising efforts, said, 'The Chipola family always comes
through. The dedication and spirit of the people of this area is the key to the success of Chipola College." The
Chipola College men's basketball program has nine national tournament appearances-more than any other Florida
community college men's team-and first year head coach Greg Heiar thinks this year's trip will be a memorable
one. Chipola played Shelton State (AL) in the first round of the National NJCAA Men's Tournament Tuesday night
.(details unavailable at press time). Chipola, ranked fifth-in the national poll, will need four wins to bring home the
national championship trophy. The Championship game of the men's tournament is set for Saturday, March 26, at 8
p.m. The Chipola College Lady Indians will make their first-ever appearance at the NJCAA Women's National
Tournament today, Wednesday, March 23, with a noon (CST) game against Southeastern Illinois College in the
Bicentennial Center in Salina, KS. The double-elimination tournament runs through Saturday, March 26. All Chipola
games will be broadcast on WJAQ-100.9 FM in Marianna.

talized at TMH, French said he
had been drinking beer through-
out the evening and had a shot of
vodka. The agent said French
recalled an officer speaking with
him about a noise complaint,
then said he saw a flash of light
and wound up on the ground
with officers on him. He said
