State Rep. David Coley dies



following brief cancer battle


by Kelli Peacock
State Representative David
Coley died Friday at Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital following a
short battle with liver cancer.
Calhoun and Liberty counties
were part of Coley's district which
also included parts of Bay,
Gadsden, Jackson, -Leon,
Okaloosa, Wakulla, and Walton.
Although he had only been
elected to his first term in office
in November, Coley was behind
the scenes serving our region
many years before, working for
the Florida House of
Representatives for 11 years.
During that time, he spent five
Sand a half years as chief-of-staff.


for. Representative Allan Bense,
who now serves as House
Speaker.
"Florida has lost a man who
epitomized public service, and
whose passion for helping others
drove him to achieve his dream of
being a state representative,"
Speaker Bense remarks.
"Personally, I have lost not just
my former aid and colleague, but
a true friend who deserves much
of the credit for what I have been
:able to achieve so far. One of my
proudest moments was looking
out on the House Chamber while
being sworn in as Speaker and
seeing Dave's smiling face.
Whenever I needed him, Dave
was there. It will be a long time
before I can get used to not just


The Honorable David Cole,.
State Representative
picking up the phone and calling
him when things get rough."
A native of Kentucky, David
has lived in Jackson County for
the past 28 years. He developed
strong ties to Calhoun County'
when he marked Martl Bontrager
of Blountstown 22 years ago. The
couple have three children,
Kristin, Vance, and Hunter.
Before his run for office, David
had accepted a position with
Chipola College's University
Center as Special Services
Coordinator in the baccalaureate
program.
After being elected-last fall,
David hit the ground running,
lending his support to issues
such as increasing the salaries of
state workers and teachers. For
years, he has\been an advocate.

Small twister wreaks havoc



across county Saturday night


by Kelli Peacock
A small twister. with winds
estimated between 60 to 70 mph,
tore through Calhoun County
Saturday night, ripping roofs,
snapping, trees, and even destroy-
ing a few metal buildings.
The band Easy Cbmpany and
Friends had moved their concert
from the porch of the Welles
Cabin to inside the old Frink Gym
at the Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement when a severe thun-
derstorm erupted around 8 p.m.
As they played, hail pummeled
the building and a tornado made
it's first stop in Blountstown,
peeling back the tin roof.from the
old Bailey Cabin and. taking down
several tall pines.
,"We didn't know there had


been any damage until the next
morning when Anna. the c.icil:lA.-
er, called," said W\\llard Smith.
the Settlement's founder.
"Rocking chairs from the porch of
the Yon House were scattered
everywhere."
The twister crossed to SR 71
North where it destroyed two
metal buildings at Big River
Cypress. As of Monday morning,
most of the power had been
restored at the lumber mill. "We
expect to be fully operational by
Wednesday," said owner Harry
Rogers, who was unsure about'
the dollar amount of damages.
Along nearby Hayes
Subdivision Road, several mobile
homes at Cochran's trailer Park
sustained siding damage and
houses, such as Helen Mears

he had an extemporaneous dis-
cussion in French with the judges

Adam to the competition. "He is
an extraordinary student, indus-

Two brothers are facing charges after allegedly trying to take this dump truck on a joyride last Tuesday night. The
truck rolled onto North Pear Street and crashed into a dumpster, as well as the side of Bracewell's Flooring and

Local brothers caught after



shortjoyride in dump truck


by Kelli Peacock


Two Blountstown brothers are
facing grand theft auto and crim-
inal mischief charges after a
short joyride last Tuesday night.
According to the Blountstown
Police Department, the 'teens
(unidentified due to their ages)
allegedly climbed in a 1.998
Peterbilt dump truck parked near
the old Dollar General store on
North Pear Street, and tried to
start it. The truck was reportedly
ta en out of gear and began
rolling backward across North
Pear, striking a City of
Blountstown dumpster and the
side, of Bracewell's Flooring and


Fencing building.
At the same time, Robin
Thomas of Blountstown was
southbound on Pear and tells The
County Record she nearly ran into
the dump truck. She says she
spotted the boys as they jumped
out of the truck and took off.
Thomas followed one of the
boys to the corner of East Central
and Cayson and remained in her
car with the youth in view.
Meanwhile, Ofc. Mallory and a
participant in the BPD ranger
.program were patrolling the area
in response to a burglar alarm
that went off at an East Central
Avenue building around 9:15
p.m: He came upon Thomas' car


and she flagged him down. Ofc.
Mallory reported the boy was
holding a hammer at the time
and he was taken into custody.
Ofc. Mallory located the boy's
brother at their aunt's home and
took the pair to the BPD station.
The brothers reportedly con-
fessed to attempting to take the
truck for a spin, as well as being
behind the building on East
Central where the alarm went off.
They allegedly said they tried to
gain entry into the building using
a crowbar.
One of the boys was released
to his aunt while the other was
taken to the Bay County
Detention Center.

Letters tothe m Eit ri


Letter to the Editor,
The Chamber of Commerce
would like to thank Bike Florida
& Share the Road Campaign and
the Bike Florida Director, Greg
Wilson, for bringing the "Red Hills
to the Sea" annual bicyclist event
to Calhoun County.
We would also like to thank all
of those who contributed to mak-
ing the event a huge success:
Airport Motel, American Legion
Post 272, Blountstown United
Methodist Church, Calhoun
County Senior Citizens
Association, Girl Scout Troop
579, Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement, Altha Senior Project
Graduation, Wayne Martin and
his band, and a host of other
wonderful merchants and citi-
zens who welcomed bicyclists to
their stores, restaurants, and our
community.
A special thanks to the Oyster
Bar on Highway 71 South for
agreeing to stay open until mid-
night, to the El Jalisco #2
Mexican Restaurant for handling
the large number of diners that
we sent to you (Mexican fare was
a special request of numerous
bicyclists!), and to Parramore's
Too for providing "local fare"
(fish!) to bicyclists.
Thank you,
Jessie M. Ehrich
Staff Assistant
Calhoun County
Chamber of Commerce
Dear Editor:
In a time when so many of our
environmental protections are
being weakened, your readers
should know that some of their
leaders in Washington are stand-
ing up for clean water in Florida.
The Bush administration in
Washington has a plan to allow
publicly-owned sewage treatment
plants to dump untreated sewage
in our waters anytime it rains,
which would be disastrous for
tourism, fishing, and public
health.
Congressman Allen Boyd took
a stand against this backward-
thinking idea, and The Clean
Water Network would like to
thank him and ask others to do
the same. Congressman Allen
Boyd joined 134 other members
of Congress, along with Florida
Senators Bill Nelson and Mel
Martinez, in signing a letter to the,
Environmental Protection Agency
opposing this policy. We applaud
his leadership in protecting pub-
lic health, our economy and our
waters. Now congressional leader
Rep. Clay Slihw rcnm Ft.
Lauderdale has introduced. the;
"Save Our Waters from Sewage
Act," to try to stop EPA from mov-
ing forward with its sewage
dumping policy. Please take time
to thank Congressman Allen
Boyd and encourage him to co-
sponsor this important legisla-
tion.

Dear Editor,
Liked or not Fla. (State) owns a
20+ acre part of Sam Atkins Park
and the narrow connecting strip
containing 12' Wide Lee Hill
Road, a meandering dirt driveway
between two houses that has now
become a State Rd. (SR) not a CR
(County Rd.)!
Preposterous but true! The
Calhoun County Commission
agreed to such a deal when pur-
chasing the Yon Parcel over 90%
of which is to the right on enter-
ing Sam Atkins park off SR 20W -
way South of the peaceful "strip
and driveway" which runs W. off
11th St. NW.
In plain as day language title
to this real estate automatically (
and without notice) goes to the
State if anything's done to prop-
erty without first obtaining (State)
Permits -let alone suing to take
neighbors' yards to widen a 12'
driveway between two homes -to
a 60' wide paved county park
entrance! The apparently over-
looked "reverter clause" reads:
"..fee simple title to the property
described herein shall be con-
veyed to the Board of Trustees of
the Internal Improvement Trust
Fund ...without further notice to
grantee (Calhoun County), its
successors and assigns and
grantee (Calhoun County), its
successors and assigns shall for-
feit all right, title and interest in
and to the Property described
herein."
Newly elected Commissioner
Wise caused a dead silence when
trying to bring this matter up. He
had finally obtained (3-2) votes in
favor of stopping the County's
lawsuit against Lee Hill Rd's
Moore family -abandoning Lee
Hill Rd. -and deeding disputed
property to adjacent owners.
Apparently the 3-votes didn't
work as the Moores say they have
since received notice from
Tallahassee (why Tallahassee?)
stating the law suit will not be
dropped unless they (Moores)
"sign-off' on same.
The State probably won't sing
thanks for any memories -but
obviously will have to be notified
and become involved.
Continuing a save-face legal-only
local approach doesn't appear to
be a good option in today's mar-
ket.
cc/cc should pray that present
Commissioners stand up and
take charge in seeking a morally
correct solution. Ex: notify State
via (Elected) Executive Office as
to the situation and ask for guid-
anCehi.eelp). in clearing titles and
obtaining "sign-offs". Early pub-
lic disclosure could have halted

Family has feathered fishing partner
Remember Ladybug, the truck riding hen, previously featured in The
County Record? Well, it turns out she has a sister, Angel, who has become
her family's favorite fishing partner! Angel, who belongs to Erin, Karen, and
Michelle, the children of Carlton and Sue Ellen Champion of Blountstown,
has made a nest in the family's boat and enjoys going fishing with them. On
her first trip on the river, she stayed in the boat the entire time! Thanks to the
Champion family for sharing this photo with The County Record readers.

Main Street presents downtown ideas


by Kelli Peacock
City officials expressed their
strong support for revitalizing
downtown at their last meeting
held*earlier this month.
Several members of
Blountstown Main Street
appeared before the Council,
Sharing a variety of ideas to turn
downtown around.
"The downtown area is
plagued with empty and rundown
buildings, some of which may
need to be condemned," Main
Street Chairman Tony Shoemake
tells The County Record.
"Boarded up store fronts, dimly
lit sidewalks, pothole filled park-
ing lots and dirty sidewalks
which promote a general sense of
neglect, and a neglected down-
town repels visitors and money


alike. Except for a few of the
downtown merchants who take
pride in their store's appearance,
the rest of the downtown area
looks like it has been forgotten."
City officials agreed with those
sentiments and assured Main
Street members they would be
willing to sign off on grants for
downtown improvements, provid-
ed they don't interfere with other
active city grants.
Kelli Peacock of The County
Record shared details of down-
town improvements in
Bainbridge, Georgia, where
CDBG (Community Development
Block Grant) funds were utilized
to purchase buildings and revi-
talize them. Shoemake presented
sketches of the vacant warehouse
building on North Pear Street
behind Blount Insurance that
could be transformed into a


unique retail center known as
Market Station. Shoemake sug-
gested using the space as a busi-
ness incubator site to help new
businesses get off the ground.
In addition, Shoemake and
Chris Atkins discussed the need
for a grant to turn the old M & B
train depot into a museum that
would also house the Chamber of
Commerce Office. They explained
that this would be a tool in pro-
moting tourism, especially once
the Blountstown Greenway bike
trail is completed.
During the Main Street pre-
sentation, Atkins shared some
ideas for a five-year-plan he
asked city officials to consider
adopting. The plan addresses
issues such as future land use,
traffic circulation, housing, con-
servation, recreation and open
space, intergovernmental pro-


jects, capital improvements, as
well as sanitary sewer, solid
waste, drainage, potable water,
natural groundwater, and aquifer
recharge.
The plan includes forming a
Community Redevelopment
Agency and using tax increment
financing to promote private sec-

Street to meet Monday
night at 5:30p.m.
Blountstown Main Street usu-
ally meets the first Monday of
each month in the Chamber's
building. The next meeting date is
April 4. The time is changed to
5:30 p.m. CST to allow time for
members to travel from their jobs
or homes to the meetings.

phone (850) 674-4519, fax (674-

tor activity in our "declared
blighted area". Atkins explained
that funds generated could be
used for the streetscape project
on North Pear, as well as a num-
ber of other improvements.
"Main Street wants downtown
Blountstown to be attractive and
pleasing to the eyes of local citi-
zens, as well as potential tourists
and visitors," Shoemake empha-
sizes. "We want it to be pedestri-
an friendly. We want to see
unique shops and restaurants

A-


* that draw people out of their cars
and onto the sidewalks. We want' '
to see the preservation of the his-
toric elements of downtown. Main
Street wants downtown
Blountstown to be a place that
everyone wants to come. In turn,-,
that will provide a brighter eco-,
nomic future and boost civic,
pride in the community."

Altha man charged
with beating woman
following encounter
An Altha man was arrested March 22
for allegedly beating a woman until she
was unconscious following a sexual
encounter back in November.
Timothy Joe Storer, 35, has been
charged with aggravated battery and false
imprisonment.
According to the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office, they received a call
around noon on Nov. 14 from the alleged
victim, unidentified due to the nature of
the alleged crime. The woman reported
she and a neighbor were sitting outside
her home on Pine Street the night before
drinking beer when a man she knew only
as T.J. approached and they invited him to
join them. The neighbor left around 2 a.m.
and, according to the victim, she and T.J.
went inside to her bedroom where they
engaged in consentual sex. The woman
also indicated she had been sexually
active with T.J. prior to this night, but only
saw him occasionally and didn't know his
last name.
Following the encounter, the woman
said she was laying face down on the bed
when the suspect hit her in the back of the
head. She turned and told him to get off of
her and he allegedly struck her again with
an unknown object, rendering her uncon-
scious. The woman told authorities she
awoke the next morning, naked and tied
at her hands, feet, and neck. She man-
aged to break free and phoned her moth-
er for help.
During the alleged attack, the woman
sustained a deep laceration to her fore-

head that will require surgery to correct. In
addition, she reportedly suffered broken
bones in her face.
Inv. Ken Futch handled the case and
eventually tracked down T.J., learning that
his name was Timothy Joe Storer.
A warrant was issued and Storer was
arrested last week. He remained in cus-
tody at the Calhoun County Jail at press
time.
Traffic stop for
speeding leads to
marijuana charges
A traffic stop for speeding landed a
man behind bars early Sunday on drug
charges.
Arrested was Brock Benton, 19,
charged with possession of less than 20
grams of marijuana and drug parapherna-
lia.
According to the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office, Deputy Jared Nichols was


eastbound on SR20 just after 4 a.m.
when he pulled a vehicle over for speecj-
ing. The driver advised Dep. Nichols he
and his passenger, Benton, were on their
way back from Panama City Beach.
While speaking with the driver, Dep.
Nichols noticed Benton moving around
and asked him to step outside the vehicle.
After noticing his eyes were extremely
bloodshot, Dep. Nichols had hitn,turn his
pockets inside out. He removed a razor
knife and butterflyknife from his left pock-
et, but failed to completely remove the
inside of his right pocket. A pat dowi
search was conducted and Benton
allegedly admitted to being in possession
of marijuana. A Ziplock bag of less than 20
grams of cannabis was recovered from
his pocket. In addition, a matchbox was
discovered inside the vehicle containing
what appeared to be a few small pieces of
marijuana.
Benton was arrested and booked into
the Calhoun County Jail where he
remained in custody at press time.

Local Scouts enjoy swimming trip


The weather was very cold on
March 19 when several members
bf Boy Scout Troop 137 of
1Blountstown got up early for their
swimming trip. The windows on
their vehicles had to have the ice
scraped off them, but that didn't
slow them down, they were going
,swimming.
The day started out a day
break for some of them who had
to go to a staff meeting for the
"Alabama Florida Council
'Woodlore Camping School. After
the meeting they linked up with
*the rest of the Troop at Westgate
,Sports and Recreation Park in
,Dothan, AL at the indoor swim-
3ning pool. By this time the day
"had turned quite nice and warm,
a great day for swimming. The
park even left the doors open to
l'et the sun shine in while they
swam. The water was warm,
excellent for swimming.
The boys went swimming in
preparation for their next canoe
trip and to give the Boy Scout
swimmers test that must be
passed prior to going canoeing.
Jerry Brown of Clarksville took
the test and passed it with ease.
Of course they went to also just
-have fun swimming and jumping
*and diving off the diving board.
We also found that Eagle Scout
Steve McCool could hold his
,breath for nearly a minute and a
half under water while
Scoutmaster Tom Aycock strug-
gled to get passed 30 seconds.
,After seeing "Aquaman" Steve,


Troop Committee Chairman Todd
Prowant didn't even want to try to
better either time.
Probably the highlight of the
afternoon was seeing another
swimmer that was there do a
back flip off the diving board and
land nearly perfectly flat on his
back. It hurt just to see him do
this, but he was fine and went
right back up the ladder and did
a front flip and opened up into a
perfect belly flop. We think he
was either nuts or preparing for
Fear Factor.
In April, the scouts will go on a
fishing trip to a beautiful area
lake, a boy scout camporee and
also a trip to Wild Adventures
Theme Park. In May they are
going on a canoe trip that will
include swimming, fishing, and
cooking their fish on an overnight
campout on the Chipola River. 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
scouting program here in our
area. Anyone wishing to offer
their much needed support to
your local program can contact
Todd Prowant at 674-9685 or
unspoken financial support can
be made at "The Bank" in


Blountstown, attention Boy
Scouts of America Troop 137.
Any boys interested in joining
this and lots of other fun activi-
ties throughout the year at a very
low cost of only $10.00 should
call 674-9685.
Our goal of scouting in


Calhoun County is to have fun
while preparing young men to be
leaders of tomorrow and to help
guide them to achieve the rank of
Eagle Scout. Check out the new
Calhoun County Scouts Website
at www.prowant.net/id56.htmn
for more information on scouting.


Although the weather was cold, Scouts enjoyed a recent swimming trip.

Tyler Prowant working


toward Eagle Scout goal


Thirteen year old Carr School
student and Life Scout of the
Boys Scouts of America Tyler
Prowant met with the Calhoun
County Volunteer Fire Chiefs at
their meeting Monday night.
Tyler has received ,approval
from the Alabama Florida
Council of the Boy Scouts of
America to begin his final step
toward becoming our counties
next Eagle Scout, his Eagle
Scouts Project. The very worthy
and indeed a very intense project
he has decided upon is to provide
every child at his school with a
Smoke Alarm for their home. He
also intends to give instruction
on Fire Safety and also smoke-
alarm installation, maintenance
arid what to do in case of an
alarm to the students.
When Tyler completes his
community service project he will
have to go before the Alabama
Florida Council Eagle Scout
Board for a very intense Board of
Review. It is believe that if he
passes this board at 13 years old
he will be the youngest Scout to
make Eagle Scout in our county.
He has been extremely dedicated


to scouting since for 7 years,
beginning a Tiger Cub Scout in
1st grade. He wishes that each
and every boy would join scouting
and share in all the fun things he
gets to do and places he gets to
go. He says it isn't right that
other boys miss out on the fun
adventures of scouting and that
they need to come join Scouts
too.
In an effort to acquire the 300+
smoke alarms needed to accom-
plish his project he is asking for
the communities support
through either providing new
smoke alarms with a battery or a
cash donation to purchase the
smoke alarms. Cash donations
toward his efforts can be mailed
to Tyler Prowant, 10126 NW
Prowant Ln., Clarksville, FL
32430. New smoke alarms can
be dropped off at any Fire
Department with a note to the
attention of "Tyler Prowant Eagle
Scout Project, 674-9685". Tyler,
would like to thank the commu-
nity in advance for their much
needed support of his community
service project.


Forest Land Enhancement


enrollment begins April 4


The Florida Department of
Agriculture and consumer
Services, Division of Forestry
announces that it will hold a
sign-up. for enrollment in the
Forest Land Enhancement
Program (FLEP) from April 4
through June 13.
This program, authorized
under the 2002 Farm Bill, is
available to non-industrial pri-
vate forest landowners on a 75-
25 cost share basis. Eligible
practices include, but are not.
limited to: site preparation, tree
planting, and prescribed burning
activities. Landowners who own
at least 10 acres but no more
than 10,000 acres of land who
have a multiple-resource practice
plan will be eligible to receive
funding assistance under FLEP.
A maximum of $10.000 will be
available for each qualifying
landowner over the life of thepro-
gram as reimbursement for
incurred expenses for approved
practices.
Almost half of the state's 14
million acres of forestland is
owned by private non-industrial
forest landowners. According to
national, regional and statewide
landowners surveys, most forest


landowners don't have a manage-
ment plan for their property. The
state's allocation under the pro-
gram will be used for implemen-
tation of forest practices pre-
scribed in existing or newly devel-
oped management plans.
Landowners can obtain appli-
.cation forms from their local
Division of forestry office and
from other cooperating agencies.
The Division of Forestry's
foresters will provide technical
assistance to landowners and
will be the local contact person
for participating landowners. For
more information, contact
Johnny Sabo, your local County

"Obviously, you want to win


your district games, .oacn
Arthur Faurot remarks. "I
thought we'd win it, but we just
couldn't get a hit when we need-


ea one. we t.a.a LWU oiUerir U
had nine hits to their four, and
still lost 6-8."
Freshman Josh McIntosh was
3 for 4 with a double and two

Turkey season now underway



in panhandle through Apr. 24


Deer hunters have their time
of year and duck hunters theirs,
but this is the time of year spring
'turkey hunters live for.
In the northern two-thirds of
Florida, which includes the
state's Central and Northwest
management zones, the spring
turkey season is March 19 April
.24. According to regulations of
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
-Conservation Commission (FWC),
hunters are allowed to bag one
,bearded turkey or gobbler per
'day, two for the spring season.
Florida is unique among states
because we're home to two of the
.five subspecies of wild turkeys
found' in North America. The
'Eastern subspecies is found


throughout most of the Florida
panhandle. The Osceola sub-
species occupies most of penin-
sular Florida and is found'
nowhere else in the United
States.
As with all states Florida's five-
week season ideally coincides
with the' peak of gobbling and
breeding activity.. On a perfect
hunt, a hunter calls a gobbler in
close and bags the bird.
However, turkey hunting often
takes place under less than per-
fect conditions and more times
than not, the gobbler "wins" and
the hunter goes home empty
handed.
While any variety of manually
operated turkey calls are legal


and used by hunters, electronic
calls are prohibited in Florida.
On private lands turkey
hunters can hunt from 30 min-
utes before sunrise until legal
sunset. On wildlife management
areas, hunting is allowed until 1
p.m. on open hunting days.
In Holmes :County turkey
hunting remains closed. FWC
Commissioners recently
approved a three-day spring sea-
son for 2006.


The Fl:ndj Fi-.h and \ldliife
has:approved anew rule that' ill:
grant small-acreage farmers the
same latitude larger growers have
in controlling nuisance deer on
their property during the hunting
season.
Previously, only landowners
with more than 640 acres could
get permits to take antlerless
deer during the hunting season.
Antlerless deer include does and
bucks with visible antlers less
than five inches long.


The new ruler \.ill enable the
rF \\V I,, _i -: ,i; iiill--i.- -- ,I- r p-[-. -
ihits to'T'artfiers-who'received deer
depredation permits for crop
damage \within the previous 12
months regardless of the amount
of acreage owned.
, Beginning July 1, persons pos-
sessing this permit and associat-
ed tags can take antlerless deer
during the muzzleloading,
archery and general gun seasons
while on their property.

rule change, visit MyFWC.com.

I LET US GIVE YOU A QUOTE ON'
YOUR NEXT PRINTING ORDER

h e Countg Record


Student Council would like to
thank the local businesses for


their generous donations. Your
support was greatly appreciated.


The Florida Department of
Health (DOH) is working closely
with the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services, local county health
departments, infectious disease
experts and local hospitals to
continue investigating recently
reported cases of Hemolytic
Uremic Syndrome (HUS) in
Florida children.
Initially, all the cases were
reported in Central Florida, how-
ever, there are now two suspect
cases in Taylor County.
As of Monday afternoon, there
were 12 cases confirmed in chil-
dren, along with two adult cases.
There are also seven suspect
cases, two of which are in Taylor
County. Cases are determined to
be suspect if an individual has
diarrhea with variable' severity
(from mild to severe and bloody)
and has recently attended Florida
fairs or festivals.
HUS can be a life-threatening
illness in which red blood cells
are destroyed and the kidneys
fail. Blood transfusions and kid-
ney dialysis may be required for
treatment.
HUS can be spread through a
variety of sources including con-
suming contaminated meat, con-
tact with infected domestic or
farm animals, drinking unpas-
teurized milk and juice, and
swimming in or drinking sewage-
contaminated Water.
Bloody diarrhea and abdomi-
nal cramps can be symptoms of
infection. DOH urges individuals
to report any bloody diarrhea, or
diarrhea with a fever, to your
health care provider.


To avoid infection and illness,
DOH recommends the following
safety tips:
/ Wash hands often, and
immediately after contact with
domestic or farm animals.
V Do not eat undercooked
meat.
oe If you suspect your child
may have symptoms of infection,


contact your health care provider.
For more information, contact
your local county health depart-
ment.
For more information and
facts on HUS, visit the DOH web-
site at www.doh.state.fl.us or

Prevention at www.cdc.gov.


Ag Commissioner orders


testing on farm animals


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson has announced he is
sending department veterinari-
ans and inspectors to inspect and
conduct testing on farm animals
linked to a series of illnesses of
children who recently visited pet-
ting zoos or attended agricultural
fairs..
Although the Florida
Department of Health (DOH) is
investigating several possible
sources that may be responsible
for the outbreak, including, food
and water the children may have
consumed, Bronson said he is
taking the proactive step of dis-
patching veterinarians, to check
on animals in an effort to
enhance and expedite the DOH
inquiry.,
"We want to do all that we can
to support health officials to get
to the bottom of this case,"
Bronson said. "We will provide all

areas and which also prepare
them for success in life."
Harpool tells The County
Record he is grateful to have been
provided the opportunity to take
French at BHS for the past four
years. "BHS is truly a unique
school in this area, offering a
wide variety of advanced and dual
enrollment courses," he points
out. "Without these enrichment
opportunities, I would never have
discovered and succeeded in the
beautiful French language"


Ayers says she hopes to take
more students to the state com-
petition next year. "We had sever-
al excellent students to go this
year, but, unfortunately, the
competition was scheduled for
the same dates as,our prom," she
explains.
The competition was spon-
sored by the American
Association of Teachers of
French: The Congres de la
Culture Francalse en Floride


of our data to our colleagues at
the Department. of Health and
stand ready to assist them in any
way we can."
State veterinarians are track-
ing the animals that were present
at the recent Central Florida Fair
in Orlando and at the Strawberry
Festival in Plant City as a num-
ber of the illnesses were reported-
ly among children who attended
one or the other of the festivals.
They will then conduct various
tests on the animals traced to
petting zoos at those fairs to
determine what, if any infections,
could have been transferred from
the animals.
At the same time, state veteri-
narians are reviewing procedures
in place at other petting zoos to
determine whether adequate san- '
itary measures are in place to
protect fair goers.
In the meantime, officials ,'
stress that it is critically impor-
tant that anyone who comes in
contact with animals takes sani-
tary precautions, including thor-
oughly washing one's hands after
contact with the animals. Some
bacteria, such as E. coli, can '
reside in animals without causing T
them any disease but can make i
humans sick if the bacteria.,
lingers on the hands and is
ingested along with food.

Reducing costs and improving
services. That's what made the
Child Find Improvement Project a
winner for the Panhandle Area
Educational Consortium (PAEC.)
Child Find is a grant program
administered by Florida
Diagnostic & Learning Resources
System (FDLRS) through PAEC.
Child Find assists in locating,
identifying and obtaining services
for children who have disabilities
or special needs.
"We realized that, with every
step a parent must take, we lose
children who might need ser-
vices," said Jennifer Adams,
FDLRS consultant'at PAEC. "We
reduced the timeline for parents
to get speech evaluation services
from 45 days to the same day,
and we provide this service to our
member districts for less money."
The Florida Sterling Council
selected the project as its 2005
Region 1. Governor's Sterling
Award winner after the presenta-
tion competition March 15 at its
Sterling Showcase competition in
Tallahassee. The Florida Sterling
Council also reviewed compre-
hensive applications before mak-
ing its decision.
Paula Lovett Waller, PAEC
executive director, said, "Our
budget is grant-based, therefore
it is imperative that we maximize
our financial resources. The
Child Find Improvement Project
reduced our cost for speech eval-
uation services because we now
hire therapists at a day-rate, to
be onsite at Child Find events,
rather than per each evaluation
scheduled and conducted in the
future."
Established in 1992, the
Florida Sterling Council is a pub-
lic/private not-for-profit corpora-
tion supported by the Executive
Office of the Governor. Since its
inception, the council has pre-
sented 42 Sterling Awards.
"This award, even at, the
regional level, recognizes the
effectiveness of educational con-
sortia at providing services to
rural and small school districts.
Together, we can do more and
work more efficiently," Waller
said

To Find God's Will,
Do Not Conform
Text: Romans 12:2
How do you find out what it is that God
wants you to do with your life?
One man wasstruggling to find God's
will: He prayed, "God, if it is your will for
rne to do this, then may the light be green
at the next corner when I get there."
I do not believe that God meant for it to
be mysterious, magical; or complicated.
God wants to communicate His will to us
more than we want to know it. There is no
simple formula or method.
But there are certain things that must
be in order before God will reveal His plan
to you. The first thing is to be willing to do
whatever it is that God wants you do. The
second is not to conform to the pattern of
the world.
God said, "...My thoughts are not your
thoughts, neither are your ways My
ways...(Is: 55:9 NIV)."
The world has its own way of thinking.
It has its own set of standards and its own
set of rules. God's ways are usually in
conllct'.w;thAhis wor.l.and-human reason-
ing
What sense did it make for Moses to
go to the ruler of the most powerful nation
in the world and demand him to let over a
million slaves go? What sense did it make
for Joshua to march around Jericho seven
times to make the walls fall? What sense
did it make for Gideon to attack the entire
Midianite army with only three hundred
men? What sense did it make for Peter to
step out of the boat and walk out on the
water to Jesus?
When God reveals His will to you, it
will require great faith and stretch your
laith to Ihe limit. God does noi operale on
human principles. When we follow Him.
neither will we. We must stop ininking like
the world.

SKeep God

In Your Heart
Sby Rev. R. W. Waterman

We Know He Hears Us
John 5:15
God tells us to pray for our physical
and material concerns, He especially
wants us to ask Him for spiritual posses-
sions and spiritual health for ourselves
and for others. His will may or may not
include a new house, an affluent lifestyle,
or good health, but He always wills that
we have eternal life; it always includes the
presence of the fruit of the Spirit in our
lives, Galations 5:22-23 and the attributes
of the divine nature, II Peters 1:3-12.
Many today see dollar signs and mate-
rial possessions when they read "whatso-
ever we ask, we know that we have..."
Perhaps you are in great need (or want) of
a material possession or physical healing
today. Can you lay that request before
God, then focus only on the eternal life
and the divine nature that God desires to
give to you? When you fast, is it to know
God better rather than to manipulate
God? When you ask for material posses-
sions or physical healing, can you ask in
light of whether it would be to God's
advantage ralner than only yours? If we
ask in God's will, "we know that we have
the petitions that we desired of him."
Remember, prayer becomes the lens
through which we begin to see from God's
perspective rather than our own.

eleventh-grade students from all
over the United States to tour our
nation's capital. However, every
student nominated by a local
civic organization or high school
to participate in the program is
invited to travel on an all-expens-
es-paid trip to Tallahassee, where

S While in Tallahassee, the stu-
dents participated in a mock ses-
sion of Congress, led by Steve

and toured the old capitol build-
ing, as well as the former House

reward local students for being
outstanding leaders in their com-
munities," GCEC Manager of
Marketing and Member Services

Legends and Lore


The Washington, D. C. Youth
Tour Program has been in exis-
tence since 1957 when co-ops
sent students to Washington, D.
C. to work during the summer.
By 1964, the program was catch-
ing on, and the National Rural
Electric Cooperative Association
began to coordinate the efforts of
the co-ops. Since then, thou-
sands of young people have expe-
rienced this once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity to visit our nation's
capital and learn about our gov-
ernment.
Gulf Coast Electric
Cooperative is part of the
Touchstone Energy@ national
alliance of local, consumer-
owned electric cooperatives pro-
viding high standards of service
to customers large and small.
GCEC serves approximately
19,200 consumers in Bay,
Calhoun, Gulf, Jackson, Walton
and Washington counties and in
the municipalities of
Wewahitchka, Ebro, White City,
Fountain and Southport.
