honor of valedictorian and Lacy
Adkins has been named salutato-
rian of the senior class.
The daughter of Jim and Sara

and will graduate with nearly 30
college credits. She plans on
earning a degree from Chipola
within a year and then heading to
Gainesville where she'll attend
the University of Florida and
apply to medical school.
S"I plan to major in either cos-
metic dermatology or plastic
surgery," Jordan tells The County
Record. In the future, she hopes
to set, up practice in nearby
Destin. "I like the atmosphere
there and I could be so close to
home, while being in an environ-
ment where my business could
do well."
During her high school years,
.Jord-n 3-ay? math and cci-nce
have been her favorite subjects.
She attributes her academic suc-
cess to being disciplined about
assignment. ."I always do my
homework. Always, always," she
emphasizes. "I don't think I've
ever not done my homework."


Jordan Waldorff Lacy Adkins
AHS Valedictorian AHS Salutatorian.


,Inspiring her along the way
have been her parents. "They've
supported me and helped me and
will continue to help me so I can
reach my goals," she says.
The. daughter of Mike and
Melba Adkins, Lacy is practically
after taking advantage of dual
enrollment opportunities during
high school. She plans to com-
plete her two year degree at
Chipola, then transfer to the
University of Florida where she'll
major in veterinary medicine.


"I want to move back. here,
somewhere 'local, so I can help
local people," Lacy remarks while
discussing her plans to become a
veterinarian. "I've known I want-
ed to do that since I was' two."
Lacy has developed habits that
have keptl, her.con track as she
strives to reach her goal. Like
Jordan, I always do my home-
work," she says. "I study for tests
because if you don't, you will not,
know what's on them."

turning several more times.

Marshall indicted



on murder charge

by Kelli Peacock


A Blountstown man has been
indicted by a grand jury for
allegedly murdering his grand-
mother and attempting to murder
one of her friends last month.
Edkah "Eddie" Leroy Marshall,
19, is accused, of shooting his
grandmother, Ruby Sansom, 71,
along with her friend, Gerald
Wells, 61, in the early morning
hours on March 2 at Sansom's
home where Marshall. was also
staying. Afterwards, he allegedly
kidnapped his 16-year-old girl-
friend, Laretta Swearingen, and
12-year-old cousin, Jonathan
Sansom. He then reportedly fled
with them in his grandmother's
car and wound up in Mississippi.
Late that afternoon, following
phone tips, Dep. Jared' Nichols
discovered the body of Ruby
Sansom and found Wells, who
had survived a gunshot wound to
his neck.
Marshall was tracked down at
a Brookhaven, Mississippi, hotel
just before midnight. Swearingen
and Jonathan Sansom were

unharmed.
Marshall is scheduled to be
arraigned May 4 at which time an
attorney will be appointed and a
pre-trial conference will be set.
He is being held without bond in
the Calhoun County Jail.


authorities. Flowers, who was
reportedly alert, recognized
Hassig's son, Adam Edwards, 17,
and he stayed \.th her until an
ambulance arrived while the oth-
ers checked to see if there was:
anyone else in the vehicle.
Flowers was flown by LifeNet
to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital
and remained in intensive care
after surgery Monday.
Carrie is the daughter of
James and Mary Flowers of
Bristol. Her family and friends
are pulling together to support
her during this difficult time.
"She has a completely severed
spine so she is going to be a
paraplegic she won't be able to
walk," her mother tells The
County Record. "She's on a venti-
lator, but I do think that will
come off in a day or two."
Just a week ago, Carrie was
taking off for Central Florida on
senior trip with her fellow class-
mates at LCHS. After having a
blast at Blizzard Beach, Universal
Studios, and Busch Gardens, the
seniors returned home Saturday
night. Sources say she had been

Dear Ms. Burkett,

Man arrested after
running girlfriend off
Sroad, slashing tires
SA Blountstown man was arrested
Friday morning after allegedly forcing his
estranged girlfriend off the road and
slashing her tires.
William Kevin Simmons, 39, has been
charged with aggravated assault, stalking,
and criminal mischief.
According to the Calhoun County
-Sheriff's Office, Tiffany Marie Taylor, 23,
called authorities just before 11 a.m, and
said she was on Hwy. 392 after Simmons
forced her 1995 Lincoln off the highway
and cut her tires with a knife. She advised
e was driving north on Hwy. 71 toward
Blountstown in a blue 1985 Oldsmobile.
Major Roman Wood and Inv. Ken
Futch located Simmons and initiated a
traffic stop. Simmons allegedly began
cursing at them upon exiting his vehicle.
Dep. Bliss Moreau joined the traffic stop
and Simmons was handcuffed and placed
in a patrol unit for officer safety. Dep,

Wood and Inv. Futch located Taylor in
Scotts Ferry.
Taylor reportedly advised she was
moving out of the Blountstown home she
shared with Simmons and alleged he tried
to block her in a cement truck he was dri-
ving. She said she had to drive acrdss'the
grass to get away in her car.
Later, when she turned onto Hwy. 392
en route to her mother's house, Taylor
said she spotted Simmons who allegedly
began pursuing her in his car. She alleged
he used his vehicle as a weapon, swerv-
ing at her in an attempt to run her off the
road. She then drove into a ditch to avoid
Simmons, however, he allegedly backed
into the driver's side of her car. He then
reportedly stepped out of his car and
struck her window, trying to get her to roll
the window down. Simmons then report-
edly began entering the keyless code to
unlock Taylor's car, however, she locked it
back each time he unlocked it. Simmons
then allegedly took a knife and cut both
front and rear tires on Taylor's car. She
utilized a cell phone to call authorities and
her mother seeking help.
Simmons was booked into the
Calhoun County Jail and remained in cis-
tody at press time.

tion and for setting you apart in a
field of qualified candidates seek-
ing the job of tax collector.
However, Ms. Burkett, I
respectfully disagree with your
decision to discontinue driver's
license servicing through the tax
collector's office. I do not under-
stand how it could no longer be
"cost effective for our small coun-
ty" to provide this service if your
cost-benefit analysis adequately
considered the costs to citizens of
conducting their driver's license
business elsewhere. According to
figures published in a local news-
paper (March 23, 2005), 1,166
Calhoun Countians and 600
Liberty Countians renewed their
driver's licenses in person during
2004. If the same number of per-
sons in 2005 must drive at least
an hour to renew their driver's
license, the cumulative cost in
travel time alone could reason-
ably be in the order of a couple
thousand hours. Add to that
other travel costs (particularly in
light of recent gas prices) and the
likelihood of unpaid time off from
work for many and it is hard to
believe that your decision is a
"cost effective" one.
Furthermore, it appears your
reasoning is based upon the
faulty premise that government
services should be limited to
those that directly generate rev-
enues exceeding their costs. ("We

Settlement hosts Panhandle Folklife Days


Hundreds of youngsters from
schools around the region con-
verged at the Pioneer Settlement
in Blountstown last week for
Panhandle. Folklife Days. The
event, held Thursday through
Saturday, allowed students to
experience life in the 1800s.
Settlement volunteers, including
several Blountstown High School
students, gave .tours of the his-
toric cabins and demonstrated a
variety of old fashioned tech-
niques including marble making,
fabric weaving, and cracklin'
cooking. Local groups performed
including the Rivertown Girls and
Ocheesee Ridge Boys and Girls.

night and was on her way home
when the crash occurred.
Donna Summers, one of the
Senior class sponsors at LCHS,
describes Carrie as an outgoing
girl. "She's got good friends that
aie boys and good friends that
ate girls," she remarks.".Sheijus
kind of fits in with the different.
groups. In the past, she has
played volleyball and basketball
and cheered here at the high
school. She was on the homecom-
iMg court and was first runner up
for queen."
: Summers says the students at
LCHS are stunned by the tragedy.
-They are very upset just in a


somber mood. This morning, we
spent time with the seniors, let-
ting them talk within their small

told the information we knew. We
had prayer with both of the small
groups for her. A lot of them
began checking out and went
over to the hospital themselves.

don't ever know."
When she thinks of Carrie,
Summers says there's one thing
that immediately comes to mind:
"She always has a ready smile."
Her family and friends are con-
fident she will face any challenges
that lie ahead with that same
spirit and grace.

Consultant provides


advice on downtown


by Kelli Peacock
Laura Lee Corbett, a
Downtown Revitalizatioi and
Historic Preservation Consultant,
met with Blountstown Main
Street members last Monday
night.
A former Main Street manager,
Corbett offered advice on how to
get downtown Blountstown
turned around. Corbett pointed
out that Blountstown has a
Community Redevelopment
Agency and discussed Main
Street member Chris Atkins' idea
for utilizing this to raise funding
through tax increments.
Corbett advised that Florida
Main Street can provide a variety
of technical assistance for
improving downtown, including
securing graduate student archi-
tects to help local building own-
ers with design ideas.


Main Street members are pur-
suing the New Orleans style river
town theme and plan to meet
with building owners to discuss
possibilities for their structures
for each to' consider.
Another suggestion was to
work hand in hand with the
Calhoun County Chamber of
Commerce on membership devel-
opment.
Main Street Chairman Tony
Shoemake discussed the draw
the Blointstown Greenway, old
M & B train depot, and downtown
district could become. "We want
to link everything .together," he
explained.
Corbett applauded that philos-
ophy. 'That's exactly what Main
Street's about creating a niche."
Anyone wishing to get involved
in Blountstown Main Street is
urged to call Jessie at the
Chamber Office at 674-4519.

Jessie Mae Price discussed a variety of plants at the last Torreya Garden
Club meeting.


Jessie Price offers tips


on container gardening


Have you ever wished you had
put a red plant here, a yellow
plant there,, and a purple one
,over there? Well, Torreya Garden
Club members learned how to
solve this problem when they.met
Monday, April 14, at the Calhoun
.County Extension Building.
Pres. Jessie Mae Price presided.
The answer is....
But first, Jessie Mae called the
meeting to order and asked
Brenda Stallworth to lead the
group in prayer.
Next, Mary Alice and Bob
Minnick served the group fabu-
lous refreshments including col-
orful salads' and other goodies
from the buffet table beautifully
decorated in an Easter motif.
Now let's find out how to have
the garden of our dream! Jessie
Mae announced "It's very simple;
just do Container Gardening."
Then the plants can be moved
about to achieve the desired
effect.
Jessie Mae said most plants
grow well in containers. However,
she cautioned that (1) container
plants need more watering, (2)
they need to be protected from
too much wind, and (3) they
require good drainage.
So, go shopping. Buy a supply
of flower pots in all sizes, shapes,
and colors. Also purchase a vari-


ety of hanging baskets. Don't for-
get some good potting soil, etc.
Select the plants you want to use
and get busy planting. After hour
plants are thriving, place them in
whatever design you choose.
When you desire a different
effect, just do so shifting of pots
and hanging baskets. You can be
as creative as you wish. A Simple
Solution!!
A brief business meeting was
held. Jessie Mae thanked Mary
Alice and Bob for the tasty
refreshments.
Mary Alice reported the Yard-
of-the-Month for April went to
Ms. Dorothy Heller, 17434 NE
11th Street, Blountstown, and
the Grounds-of-the-Month went
to McMillan Trees and Shrubs,
20052 Central Avenue W.,
Blountstown. i
Panama City Garden Club will
hold a Spring Fling April 16. for
details, see Jessie Mae.
The next meeting will be May
2nd. Annual dues will be collect-
ed.

Tigers host East Gadsden Friday FORTHEWHLEHUSE!

by Kelli Peacock "We faced a very good left handed "Mental mistakes is what it was." 1 with a single, and Christian


The Tigers dropped to 4-8 after
falling to Wewa and Chipley last
week.
BHS took on Wewa and lost 5-
4. "We played very well, we hit the
ball well against Wewa," says
Coach Warren Tanner who has
assumed the head coach position
following the departure of Coach
Greg Jordan. "It was a heartbreak
loss. We lost it in the bottom of
the seventh on a ball that went
past the catcher, but it was a very
defensive game. The difference in
that ball game was a first inning
grand slam that they hit off Matt
Alford who started the game."
Alford was relieved by Brandon
Smith who struck out seven bat-
ters and allowed four hits.
Offen.welh. the Tigers were led
by Smith who was 2 for 2 with
two singles and Garry Reed with
a solo homerun. Eric O'Bryan,
Justin Goodman, and Robby
McDonald each had a single.
Next up was Chipley and the
Tigers were defeated 3-0. "Our
bats died." says Coach Tanner.


by Coach Melissa McGill
The Altha Lady Wildcats junior
varsity softball team recently
ended their season with a 5-3
record. Here's the highlights from
their last two games:
Altha loses to Tolar, 7-6
Emily Brooks started on the
mound for the Cats, walking
eight, striking out eight, and
allowing no hits. Sylvia Bodiford
finished the game, walking one,
striking out two batters, and giv-
ing up two hits.
SLeading hitters were Sierra
Chason who was 2 for 3 with two
singles; Whitney Melvin with a
double; and Carrie Tucker with a


pitcher. He struck out 15 of our
batters. He was a good pitcher
and we just couldn't hit him.
When we did hit the ball, we hit it
right to them."
Smith was on the mound for
the Tigers, striking out nine.
Despite the losses, Coach
Tanner is extremely pleased with
the Tigers' attitudes. "We're still
playing hard," he remarks. "They
haven't quit as a team and I'm
real pleased with that. It was a
loss to lose Coach Jordan, but
the players are still competing
and we're going to finish out the
season. I'm real pleased with
them and excited for them."
The J.V. Tigers ended their
season last week. They also faced
Wewa and lost 10-3. Key hits
came from Matt Vincent who was
2 for 3 with a single and a double;
Ricky Mercer who was 2 for 3
with two singles; and Chad Bailey
who was 1 for 2 with a double.
"We just had a bad inning in
the fourth when they scored a
bunch of runs on us and that
cost us the ballgame," Coach
Tanner points out, adding,


homerun. Ashley Smith, Emily
Brooks, Sylvia Bodiford, and
Lindsey Doyal each had a single.
Altha defeats BMS, 10-1
Sylvia Bodiford pitched for the
Cats, striking out six, walking
seven, and allowing three hits.
Leading hitter was Cherie
Hires who was 4 for 4 with a dou-
ble, three singles, and four RBIs.
Ashley Smith and Lindsey Doyal
each had a double. Sierra Chason
was 2 for 4 with two singles.
Sylvia Bodiford was 2 for 4 with
two singles (two RBIs). Emily
Brooks was 1 for 4 with a single
(two RBIs). Whitney Melvin and
Alex Alejos each had a single.


The J.V. Tigers were scheduled
to face Liberty County Thursday,
but the game was rained out.
Chipley was the final game of
the season and the J.V. Tigers
lost 9-1.
Offensively, the Tigers were
led by Jared Lilly who had two
singles, Chad Bailey who was 1
for 3 with -a double, Nic
Tomlinson who was 1 for 2 with a
single, Jason Byrd who was 1 for


Smith who was I lor 2 with a sin-
gle.
Starting pitcher was Chad
Bailey. "He pitched a good ball-
game with eight strikeouts," says
Coach Tanner.
The Tigers hosted Wewa
Tuesday (details unavailable at
press time). They'll travel to Port
St. Joe Thursday and be back at
home Friday to host East
Gadsden at 5 p.m.

Tigers look ahead to


Sbu Coach Bobby Johns
S During our 14-1 and State
Runner-up campaign last sea-
son, the constant criticism that
we had a "cupcake schedule" con-
tinued to try and downplay our
accomplishments.
Well, when it came time to do
Sour new two-year schedule that
will begin next season, I quickly
realized that many coaches like to
choose the years you're not very
good in order to play. Teams that
were jumping at the chance to
play us two years ago when I was
doing the schedule did not seem
as eager this year.
With our move up in classifica-
tion from 1A to 2B, many of our
rivals are no longer in our dis-
trict. Liberty County, Wewa, and
Port St. Joe will no longer decide
whether we make the playoffs.
There will be no one who can
complain about the strength of
our schedule next season as we
were forced to severely upgrade
our opponents. With Spring prac-
tice just around the corner, I
thought I would give all of you a
nrevierw of the schedule we will
tackle next season as we try and
make another run toward a State
Championship.
We will begin the season with a
Nre-s..4>)i: classic at Bowles
Field against the Liberty County
Builda-'. This was not the ideal
place for them on the schedule.
but I wanted to make sure we still
." .t '.,: ::; since t'i ':.- are not in
our district any L:. r: r. It will be
a huig chail-ienc for us to play
Bristol in a pre-season game and
hope to get out without any
uJult-nz-:. It should, the iit, be a
great way to start our season.
We will begin regular season
play at home against the Port St.
Joe Sharks. To play them in
week one and have to follow
Liberty County is going to make
this game even more exciting. It
will be a challenge for us to play
with the same kind of passion
since they are not a District game
any longer. We will be ready for
the challenge.
In game 2, we face off against
West Gadsden, formerly
Greensboro, in Greensboro. with
the addition of Chattahoochee
last year to their school, the nor-


The 2005 Tiger football team is preparing for spring training. Returning players include (kneeling, from left) Josh

Johns.


mal abundance of speed they
[:.:.;,S was only increased. We
\,i.. tJi. out very quickly if we are
siding to be athletic enough to
compete in the playoffs with the
teams we will be forced to face.
* In week 3, we will host North
Fli.,rida Christian School Many
groups have this game billed as
one of the top ten games in the
entire state next season. NFC
has four legitimate Division 1
recruits and will give us a chance
to prove whether or not we are a
contender. We almost faced them
last season, but they got beat by
Trinity Christian on a play at the
end of the game. This should be
a great one.
In game '4, we will get a
rematch of the third round play-
off game from last year as we face
Vernon High School in our first
District game. For the second


straight year, they will have to
come to the Jungle and beat us.
This should be one of the best
games of the year. They have one
of the best coaches in Florida and
I am sure he will be ready to
avenge lastyear's loss. I hope the
crowd is as big as it was last sea-
son when we played Vernon
because it was a huge advantage
Sfor us I'm sure.
We will have an open week
during the 5th week of the season
as the FHSAA put the open date
back into the schedule for the
next four years.
In game 6, we have really bit-
ten off a huge bite. We will host.
Leon High School at Bowles Field.
Everyone, thinks I have lost mny
mind and I tend to agree, but in
the middle of March, I still need-
ed two games and Leon was the
only school calling.. If we can be


healthy when the time comes for
us to play this game. I think it
will be a great one for the fans to
see.
In week 7, we will make a very
long trip to Tampa to play Berkley
Prep School. This was the second
game I was short in the middle of
March and was forced to pick up.
Last season, in class. 1A, they
were ranked # 1 for several weeks.
They have a great football pro-
gram and it will be a very tough
game for us. The one good thing
about having to travel that long
distance is that the State
Championship games this year
are in Miami and this will help us
prepare for the change in routine


The County Record, APRIL 13, 2005, Page 7




'05 season


in hopes we will make it back to
the "Big Dance."
The 8th week of the season
begins the meat of our District
schedule as,we will play Bozeman
High School from Panama City.
Bozeman is a new school that
was built to relieve Mosely High
School when it became over-
crowded. They are a new school
that will not have seniors next
year. This may be our homecom-
ing game as we finish the season
with three road games
In week 9, we play our long-
time rival, the Chipley Tigers. In
the four years I have been at
BHS, we have only beaten
Chipley once. I will have to better
prepare my team next season
because now this game means
much more. If we do not win this
year, we may not make the play-
offs. It will be a very important
game for us and we will have to
be ready to play.
In week 10, we renew a rivalry
against a team we have not
played since I have been here..
The Holmes County Blue Devils
were a team that Blountstown
always had great games against.
We have not played them in the
last four years and I am really
looking forward 'to the challenge
of playing them next season.
This should be a game that every-
one will enjoy watching.
In the final game of the year,


we will face an old rival with a
new leader. Most everyone knows'.
that Coach Greg Jordan left toe
take the Head Football job at
Wewa. What most people don't
know is we will travel to play the
Wewa Gators in. week 11 next,
season. If this was not already a
big game for us, it is even bigger,
now. I'm sure it will attract much
attention from people in our com-
munity as well as people from
Wewa. I wish I could say I am
looking forward to this game, but
I'm not. Coach Jordan was a
great coach for us and it is going
to be really tough to look at him'
on the other sideline, but I'm sure
our guys will be ready to try and
take care of business entering the
playoffs. I know Coach Jordan
will be ready!
As you can see, we have a*
tough road ahead of us if we are
going to repeat as District,
Champions and make another.
run in the playoffs. We must stay.
healthy and play good every
week. There are no "cupcakes"
on this schedule at all. There.
won't be a whole lot of fans leav-
ing before halftime. Every game
will be a wire to wire battle for us,
I promise, though, we will bq,
ready.
"Tiger Pride" will have to be
even bigger next year and we are
ready for the c-h.itil:ng'r.. GO

AM I A hROAT EAC


INTRODUCTION AND OVERVIEW
The American Indian Probate Reform Act
(AIPRA) of 2004 was enacted on October 27,
2004. The Act amends the Indian Land
Consolidation Act and amendments made in.
2000 and this notice replaces the notice provided
in 2001. This Act affects your ownership
rights in trust or restricted land, unless the
land is located in Alaska. Most of the
provisions do not take effect for one (1) year.

AIPRA changes the way trust estates are distrib-
uted to your heirs after your death. This increas-
es the importance and benefits of writing a will
or doing an estate plan. AIPRA also improves
your ability to consolidate your interests in trust
.or restricted land.

SECTION 1:
PROPERTY DISTRIBUTION, WILLS, AND
ESTATE PLANNING
TheAct creates a new nation-wide probate code
that changes how your trust property will be dis-
tributed among your heirs if you die without a
will. Other changes include amended definitions
of "Indian" and "eligible heirs" for purposes of
inheriting in trust. The changes also provide
opportunities for Indians or the tribe to purchase
your interest in trust or restricted land at probate.
In order to give you time to plan, the inheritance
changes take effect after one (1) year. To help
you understand some of the most important,
- changes,. u.nccdJ 0to know 1 h"t happ.Ls if you..,
do not have a will or an estate plan.

SHOULD YOU WRITE A WILL?
The new law protects your rights as a property
owner to transfer your property by will. By writ-
ing a will, you can designate how your trust land
will be transferred in trust to any Indian person or
to your descendants even if they are not tribal
members. You can control how your trust prop-
erty is passed by creating an estate plan, such as
a will or deed. There are also new provisions on
wills. If you have already written a will, you
should review it to make sure the will says what
you currently want.

WHO CAN RECEIVE YOUR PROPERTY
AT DEATH IN TRUST?

Without a Will:
If you do not write a will, your trust property
will pass under the new federal probate code or
approved tribal probate code, rather than under
the state laws that currently govern Indian pro-
bate, Your trust land will continue to be inherited
by your immediate family first to your children
or grandchildren or possibly great grandchildren,
and if you have none, then to your parents or
brothers and sisters, All of these people will be eli-
gible to inherit your (unst property as long as each
meets the definition of Indian below, or are your
descendants within two generations of an Indian,
or they already are co-owners in the same parcel.
Land not passing to one of the people above will


you have a spouse and other eligible heirs, your
surviving spouse will inherit 1/3 of any money in
your IIM account at the time of your death, and
all of the money produced from your interest in
trust or restricted land during your spouse's life-
time. Your other heirs get the remaining 2/3 of
any money in your IIM account at the time of
death, and the remaining ownership interest in the
trust or restricted land. Your spouse may also
continue to live in a family home located on
allotted land. If your spouse but no other eligible
heirs survive you, the spouse gets your IIM
account, and during the spouse's lifetime, the
money produced from your land interest. The
spouse may also continue to live in a family
home located on allotted land. The remaining
ownership interest in land goes to the tribe where
the land is located. If you do not write, a will and
your ownership interest is less than 5% of the
total, your spouse may continue to live in the
family home on the parcel and then the new pro-
bate law will limit inheritance to the oldest eligi-
ble child, and then oldest eligible grandchild or
oldest eligible great-grandchild.

Additionally, the Department of the Interior may
purchase interests in land that are less than 5% of
the total, for fair market value during the probate
proceeding without the consent of the heirs.
However, this- authority to purchase small inter-
ests without the heirs' consent DOES NOT
APPLY IF THE INTEREST IS PASSING
-. .THROU -,.A VALID WILL, 0o if the heirs \ ere
living on the land. Spouses living on a parcel
also are protected.

With a Will:
By writing a will, your land can be transferred in
trust to any Indian person, the tribe that has juris-
diction, or any Indian co-owners. You can also
transfer your land in trust to any of your descen-
dants (children, grandchildren, great grandchil-
dren, and great-great grandchildren) even if they
are not Indian. You can control how your trust
property is passed by creating an estate plan, such
as a will or deed: You can transfer your interests
out of trust to anybody. Even if your spouse is
not mentioned in a will, your spouse may inherit
some of your trust property.

WHO MAY INHERIT LAND IN TRUST
UNDERAIPRA?
There is an amended definition of Indian that
helps determine who can inherit an interest in
land in trust, particularly where there is no will.
Under AIPRA, an "Indian" is a person who: is a
member of an Indian tribe, or is eligible to
become a member of an Indian tribe; or was an
owner of an interest in trust or restricted land on
October 27, 2004; or meets the definition of
"Indian" under the Indian Reorganization Act, or
in California, any person as in 1, 2, 3, and 4, or
who owns trust or restricted land in California.
This will not affect your eligibility for other fed-
eral Indian programs. Your heirs who are not
Indian may be able to inherit in trust if they meet


If you have heirs who are non-Indian, be sure to
seek information at the toll-free number below or
at your local agency office. The provisions of
AIPRA are complex. Be sure to seek informa-
tion for any questions you may have.




SECTION 2:
CONSOLIDATING OWNERSHIP INTERESTS
One of the main purposes of the Act is to pre-
serve the trust status and reduce the number of
small, fractionated interests in Indian lands. The
Act does this by providing individuals and tribes
with more opportunities to consolidate fractionat-
ed interests and by removing some restrictions
on what tribes and individuals can do with their
lands.

WHAT IS THE PURCHASE OPTION AT PRO-
BATE?
Certain people can purchase your interest in the
parcel during probate. Your heirs, other co-own-
ers, and the tribe where the land is located will be
able to purchase your interest in the parcel. The
purchase price must equal or exceed the fair mar-
ket value. Your heirs would receive the money
paid for your interest in the parcel instead of a
share of your interest in the parcel. If your heirs
are to receive 5% interest or more in the parcel,
or if they live on the parcel, your heirs' consent to
the purchase is required.

WHATARE CONSOLIDATION '
AGREEMENTS?
Heirs can decide how they want the trust estate
distributed at the, probate hearing. For example,
they may decide whether they wish to inherit
their share, or sell it to other co-owners or the
tribe where the land is located. Heirs may also
give their share to another named Indian person
instead of inheriting it.

HOW CAN A PERSON ACQUIRE OTHER
FRACTIONATED INTERESTS?,
The Act contains a number of provisions that are
important to Indian landowners. Some examples
are: Land consolidation options for landowners,,
Partition by sale of Indian lands, Continuation
and expansion of the federal "buy back"
program, and Greater flexibility for landowners
to consolidate and acquire interests during the
probate process.

HOW CAN YOU TRANSFER AN INTEREST
IN PROPERTY DURING YOUR LIFETIME?
Please seek information from your trust officer,
your local BIA office or the toll free number
below for information on estate planning options
during your lifetime such as: Negotiated
sales, Gift deeds, Land exchanges, and other
transactions.


then pass to the tribe where the land is located. If

SFind God's Will to Be Pleased
Text: Romans 12:2
A college student needed to buy a car.
One night he dreamed that ,r lirMing
was yellow. The next day, he found a ,ar
that was yellow inside and out. He bought
it without any questions. It turned out to be
a lemon.
How do you find God's will? There is
no simple, magical formula. However,
there are some things in your life that
need to be in order before God will reveal
His will.
First, be willing to do whatever God
wants you do..Second, stop thinking like
the world. Third, start thinking like God.
Then, you will be able to "test and
approve what God's will is His good,
pleasing, and perfect will (NIV)..
That means you will be able to. try,
examine, scrutinize, or discern God's will.
You will be able:to listen to God and
understand His plan. God's plan' for your
life may require you to make great sacri-
fices. It may require you to suffer greatly.
You may suffer persecution and pres-
sures of all kinds. Following God does not
mean that your problems in life are over..
It does mean.that you can find joy,
peace, satisfaction and purpose in what-
ever God wants, you to do. That is why
Paul could get up after being stoned by
one crowd for preaching the Gospel, find
another crowd, and preach the exact
same message.
God created you. He "knit you togeth--
er in your mother's womb." You are no
accident. You were "created in Christ
Jesus to do good works, which God pre-
pared in advance, for us to do (NIV)." He
knows what will challenge-and satisfy you.
There is nothing like being in the cen-
ter of God's plan doing exactly what He
wants you to do. God's will is good, pleas-
ing, and perfect to you.

Keep God In Your Heart
by Rev. R. W. Waterman

Jesus Makes You Whole
Acts 9:34
He wasn't a lame man or a leper, or
crippled, not even palsied. But Aeneas
was important enough for Luke to.record
his name, his illness, and the' length of
that illness.
Aeneas hears that Peter, who was on
a tour of the churches, is coming to visit
the Christians at Lydda. He wants' to be
there at the right time, in his regular place
to hear Peter who knew Christ intimately.
Perhaps after eight years he gives no
thought to his physical condition. Do
dreams of being, healed surface in his
mind? Does he dwell on the past, griev-
ing about the changes in his life? Or;
does his heart yearn to learn more about
his Lord from one who had walked with
Jesus?
Wow, what a day! He is healed and
given responsibility "Take care of your
mat" (v. 34 NIV).
Gwen Clark tells of her brother's
Parkinson's disease which began to man-
ifest itself in tremors, falls,and drooling
saliva, the young people at our church.
made fun of him. Determined to go to
church, he changed churches (and.
denominations). There he was lovingly
received by young and old alike, and
eventually became the caretaker of the
hymn books. He loved the responsibility.
When. God chooses to heal us or not
to heal us, He does it for two purposes:
(1) for the praise and glory of His name
and (2) so that we can accept responsibil-
ity.

detain Andrews until Sgt. Terry
could fax over the grand theft
auto complaint. However, when
Sgt. Terry arrived back at, the
Sheriffs Office to send the fax, he
learned Andrews had fled the
scene and ended up in a crash.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, Andrews took off,
heading westbound on U.S. 98.
Up ahead, deputies placed spike
strips in the roadway to stop him
and had passing motorists pull
over so they wouldn't be in his
path. However, when Andrews
reached the spikes, he swerved to
avoid them, skidded off the road-
way and struck a 1997 Chevrolet
SUV, occupied by a Tallahassee
couple that had pulled over to
avoid him. The SUV rotated and
struck a 2002 Volkswagen occu-
pied by two.women from Missouri
who were also parked on the
roadside.
The impact ejected Andrews'
passenger, Homer Padgett, 41, of
Ocala, who reportedly flew 50 feet
in the air. He was taken to Bay
Medical Center, underwent
surgery, and was placed in the
surgical intensive care unit.
Occupants of the other two vehi-
cles were also taken to area hos-
pitals where they were treated
and released. Andrews was also
treated and later released to Gulf
County authorities.
According to Gulf County
Sheriff Dalton Upchurch, it is
unclear when passenger Homer
Padgett entered the picture. "I
haven't a clue," he remarks.
Padgett was moved to a regular
hospital room Monday and tells
The County Record he believes he
accepted a ride from Andrews in
Port St. Joe, but doesn't remem-
ber much that occurred before
the crash. Padgett is recovering
from surgery on his jaw and chin.
The accident, was investigated
by Trooper Philip Spaziante.

Speaker to students: 'It's about choices'

Students at Altha, Blountstown Middle School and Blountstown High School saw firsthand Monday where the
wrong choices will lead you. Speaker Daniel Davison shared how his life as a drug dealing, cocaine addicted, musi--
cian in Chicago led to him losing his hands and half his legs due to frostbite a decade ago. Since that time, Davison
has turned his life around and devoted himself to reaching youth about the dangers of drug use. Davison told stu-;
dents that he and his four brothers were raised by an abusive father and endured unspeakable torment over the
years. But Davison emphasized, "It's not about where you come from, it's about the choices you make." He said one
of his brothers ended up dead from drug abuse, while another became a wife beater and child abuser like their
father. However, another brother is a loving father and hard working husband, and the other is President and CEO:.
of a bank corporation. "That was their choice," he stated. Davison, who. now resides in Naples, urged students to
make decisions that will put their lives on track and keep them there no matter what situation they come from.
School Resource Officer Warren Tanner of the Blountstown Police Department arranged for Davison to speak to
area students. He also spoke at Liberty County schools Tuesday. Ofc. Tanner extends his appreciation to all the local 7
businesses who sponsored his appearance.

complete without discussing the
fact that Liberty County's Tax
Collector, Carol Strickland, is
taking the initiative to better
serve her citizens by providing
driver's license servicing. She is
doing so in the face of the same
considerations you cite as justifi-
cation for ceasing this service and
despite obstacles that include the
limited resources of a smaller
county, and the need for training
for her and her staff in a service
they have never provided before.
However, wouldn't it be more
"cost effective" for the Calhoun
County Tax Collector's office to


continue this service when its
employees already have knowl-
edge and experience in driver's
license processing and when the
"roll-out" of new procedures will
occur at established offices first?
With your decision have we lost
our status as an "established
office?"
In your notice to citizens
announcing the cessation of dri-
vers .license services, published
only a few days before its effective
date, you incidentally refer to
security concerns as justification
for your decision. It's my under-

cerns relate to equipment and
procedural changes that are
largely being driven by our coun-

Security program. If our federal
government has identified driver
license processing as important

these objectives most effectively
be accomplished close to home,
by an office staffed by persons

You further justify your deci-

the time your staff needs to "ade-

to the citizens of Calhoun County
in an effective manner." I'm not
familiar with all the services cur-

services you will continue to pro-
vide and those to eliminate, that
you consider the number of citi-
zens impacted with your deci-
sions. To use fishing licensing as
an example, virtually all fisher-
men require driver's license, but
not all drivers require fishing
licenses. While fishing licensing
may not be a discretionary ser-
vice of your office, my point is
that if provided services need to
be pared down or eliminated, per-
haps there are less essential
functions than driver's license
servicing that should be eliminat-
ed first.
As for the "space" problems
you cite as further justification
for your decision, I credit you and
the County with the wherewithal
to solve what must be a recur-
ring, but hardly insurmountable
problem for our County govern-
ment.
As I have said, Ms. Burkett,-I
believe that you can credit your
long association with the tax col-
lector's office and not campaign


-i-I P


promises for your election. Even
so, had your campaign promises
included distinguishing yourself
as the only county tax collector
eliminating driver's license ser-
vicing, among the 27 or 28 tax
collectors in the state currently
providing that service, I believe
that we would have a different tax
collector today.
Thank you, Ms. Burkett, for


reconsidering this matter. 1 trust
that upon reflection you will
resume this long-relied upon' ser-
vice to the citizens of Calhoun
County and live up to the expec-
tations of the many who support-
ed you in your election.
Regards,
Patti L. Wood
