Woman arrested for DUI



after crashing and fleeing


by Kelli Peacock
A crash in Calhoun County
last, week landed a Marianna
woman behind bars after she fled
the scene and was found to be
intoxicated.
Laurie Ann Jones, 38, has
been charged with DUI with prop-
erty damage, providing a false
statement, and leaving the scene
'ofan accident.

According to Florida Highway
Patrol Trooper Jason Britt, Jones
was allegedly traveling south on
Hwy. 275 on April 25 around
8:50 p.m. when she made a left


hand turn on Leonard McCroan
Road and lost control of her 1995
Jeep SUY. The vehicle reportedly
began fishtailing and overturned
on the driver's side, striking a
tree on the south side of Leonard
McCroan Road.

"From that point, she walked
to a residence and called a
boyfriend to come and pick her
up," Trooper Britt tells The
County Record, adding that the
Sheriffs Department received a
911 call from the people in the
house where Jones used the
phone. "She was not at the scene
whenever I arrived. I attempted to


locate her at her residence in
southern Jackson County and I
was told she was back at the
scene, but made it to two or three
different residences before she
came back. Someone brought her
to the scene an hour or so later."
Trooper Britt determined that
Jones was under the influence at
the time of the crash, resulting in
the DUI charge. Additional
charges were added after she
allegedly gave false statements
about the crash to Trooper Britt.
Jones was booked into the
Calhoun County Jail and given a
conditional release the following
day.

behind bars for allegedly molest-
ing his former stepdaughter -
accusations he has adamantly
denied.
Joey H. Bright, 37, walked out
of the Calhoun County Jail a free
man last Wednesday after the
state dismissed all charges
against him.
"They offered me less than 51
months probation to go home,
but I said no I did not want [a
criminal charge] on me," Bright
tells The County Recoid. "At my
first arraignment, I told the judge,
I wanted my name cleared when I
left that courtroom."
Bright was arrested back in
October and bond was set at
$50,000 an amount he was
unable to pay. In February, the
bond was revoked and he
remained in jail the entire time
awaiting his day in court.
A variety of factors led to
Bright being cleared from the
charges. His attorney, Wade
'Mercer, asked Assistant State
Attorney David House to consider
dismissing the case in a letter
April 11. According to the letter,
Bright passed a lie detector test;
the alleged victim gave a total of
six statements and repeatedly
contradicted herself; the child's
mother had allegedly tried -to
burn Bright's house down with
him and his sons in it prior to 'dhe
child's allegations; and Bright
was engaged in a land dispute
with the child's grandmother
when the accusations were made.


Charges were dropped by
House on April 27.
"I want to thank David House
for taking the time and looking at
the evidence," says Joey. "I thank
him for doing the right thing., I
also thank all the officers at the
Calhoun County Jail Lt. Coburn
and his staff for treating me like
a human being. I thank God for
them. They made my time their
easier."
Bright,. who has coached little
league baseball and youth foot-
ball for 20 years, says his friends
and family have stood'by him the
entire time he was behind bars.
"Everybody that knew me is
happy to see me back home. I
want to thank my wife for stand-
ing by my side."
Bright's wife, Michelle, says
the past few months raising their
five sons (Michelle has three and
Joey has two) has been a strug-
gle, but she is appreciative of the
support she's received. "We just
thank Wade Mercer for all his'
efforts and hard work and his
integrity to show forth the truth,"
Michelle remarks. "I thank him
for standing by our family. I also
thank my mother and stepfather,
Janice and Tlo, for their uncondi-
tional, iunfailing love."
Joey and Michelle say their
church was behind them every
step of the way. "Pastors Jack
Hollis and Gino Mayo and our
church family were there with

'The Bank. told a six member jurv'
last week he is seeking in excess

Damages. in a lawsuit against his
former employer. In a, counter-
claim, the Band Corporation
(TBC), that owns The Bank,
alleges they lost around $33 mil-
lion due to Hiers' misrepresenta-
tions and omissions.
Opening remarks were heard
last Wednesday in a makeshift
courtroom at the Veterans
Memorial Civic .Center in Bristol.
Hiers' lead attorney, Michael
Coppins, painted the picture. of a
small town bank turned sophisti-
cated lending institution. He said
Hiers joined C & L Bank of Bristol
in the mid 1980s and worked his
way up to the helm of the compa-
ny. He said Hiers was known for
serving customers most banks
hesitate to assist, such as logging
companies and other forest relat-
ed industries.
The success of C & L Bank of
Bristol caught the attention of
TBC and it's Chairman and CEO,
James "Jimmy" Taylor, Sr. of
Birmingham. "You can bet the
ranch they came. down and
kicked the tires and popped the'

Two Blountstown residents
were among the 600 guests invit-
ed to the now infamous wedding
of the "runaway bride" in Duluth,
Georgia, who made national news
over the past week.
It turns out Burke Hayes is the
second cousin of groom John
Mason. His late mother, Nan, and
the groom's grandmother are sis-
ters. Hayes and his wife, Eva,
were planning to head to this
Atlanta suburb for the nuptials,
but wound up going instead to be
with the family while they waited
fornews on the missing bride.
Burke says he learned
Wilbanks was missing after he
received a call from' his sister,
Brooksann, in Jacksonville. "We
were real shocked," he tells The
County Record. ,"We assumed the
worst."
Television news reports indi-
cate Wilbanks had gone jogging
last Tuesday night and never
returned..Her fiance and family
members suspected she had been
kidnapped when they discovered
her purse, credit cards, and iden-
tification still at home.


for Taylor were "a little queasy
about the logging loans," but
Taylor decided to purchase the
*three Calhoun and Libert C & L
branches.
Coppins said promises were
made that C & L would remain
the same community bank, but
Hiers alleges that wasn't the case.
Coppins told jurors the evi-
dence would show Hiers' reputa-
tion was damaged by a press
release issued by The Banc
Corporation shortly after his ter-
mination in January 2003.
In addition, he says an email
sent by Barbara Haag, a senior
auditor for The Bank, also
defamed his character. The email
read like a popular MasterCard
commercial, ending with the line:
"Jed Hiers in jail...priceless."
Coppins alleged TBC breached
their contract with Hiers by firing
him without cause and owes him
lost wages.
As for TBC's counterclaim that
Hiers cost them $33 million,
Coppins told jurors it was "a
smokescreen" and Hiers was not
responsible for those losses.
Defense Attorney Steve Carr
had a different story to tell. 'This
case is about trust and the
betrayal of trust," he told jurors,
later adding, "We believe evidence
will show Mr. Hiers breached that


"We went up there to support
the family," says Hayes, adding
that they encountered the media
circus when they arrived. "We
just .drove right through that,
they didn't know who we were."
Burke and Eva enjoyed dinner
and a visit with his 'relatives
before heading home '"They are
the easiest going people you've
ever met in your life," says Burke,
He and his wife left Atlanta before
learning that Wilbanks had called
from Albuquerque with the bogus
story that she had been kid-
napped by a couple in a blue van.
She later recanted that story in
an interview with New Mexico
authorities and admitted she had
left on her own, taking a bus to
Las Vegas and then to
Albuquerque.
According to an article in
Tuesday's edition of The Atlanta
Journal-Constitution, Mason still
plans to marry Wilbanks. The
City of Duluth isn't quite as for-
giving. The same article says
Duluth Mayor Shirley Lasseter is
considering suing Wilbanks to
recover an estimated $60,000 the
two days of public searches cost
the city.


trust and jeopardized the exis-
tence of that bank."
Carr said while Hiers was with
C-& L, he had a loan hnllt of
91001 000 the amount he could
approve v.Ilihoult taking it to the
board for approval. After C & L
was .purchased by' TBC, "Hiers
was entrusted with a $1 million
lending authority. "We gave Mr.
Hiers the autonomy to run the
bank exactly the way he wanted
to run it;" Carr remarked. "When
a decision was made in Bristol,
Blountstown and Altha, the buck
stopped with him."
,One of the main customers
Carr focused on in opening argu-
ments was Ben Watson of
Cordele, Georgia a banking rela-
tionship the defense alleges cost
them nearly $12 million. Watson
reportedly owned a mechanical
contracting business called GFA
and was introduced to Hiers in
1998 by Roy Bailey of
Blountstown, owner of C &- B
Mechanical, an underground
utility business. Watson report-
edly acquired C & B, along with T
& R, a business Bailey owned
with his.wife, Teresa. "By the end
of 2002, Watson was personally
responsible for $12 million worth
of loans to .our bank," Carr told
jurors.
Carr further stated that the
loans were not tied together in
the bank's computer system -
linking them all to Watson. "We
didn't know one man was respon-
sible for these loans," he

S Dear Editor:
Our pug recently disappeared
from our yard. She was a much-
loved family pet and the people of
our community, as well as the
surrounding communities,
showed great kindness and gen-
erosity in helping us try to find
her. People allowed us to pass fly-
ers around, and post them in
S their stores. People also contin-
ued to ask about her, and let us
know they were sorry.
We found her body this week-
end. It was sad, but at least we
found her. The kindness of many
people touched our hearts, and
reminded us again that this is a ,
community with a lot of heart.
Sincerely,
Elam and Esther Stoltzfus

Blountstown Main Street


needs you to get involved


Blountstown Main Street is
developing a vision to turn down-
town around and your help is
needed!
If you've ever made the com-
ment, "Why can't our town be
like..." then you fit the bill of a
Main Street member. Anyone
with a passion for revitalizing our
community can be, a part of this
exciting process!
In the past, the word, "down-
town" brought to mind an image
of a bustling center of commerce
and activity. Too often today, the
image is of vacant, deteriorating
buildings. Communities have dis-
covered that, with help from
Florida Main Street, downtown
can thrive again.

Musical by Wynn at FAMU


A Calhoun County native has
written and directed a musical to
be performed over the weekend at
Florida A & M University.
On May 7th at 8:00 p.m. and
May 8th 5:00 p.m., Lee Hall at
FAMU will come alive with the
original gospel musical "LORD
LIFT US HIGHER".
The Writer/Director Jimmie
Wynn-Black is a native of
Blountstown and daughter of Ms.
Bessie Wynn. She said this has
not been an easy journey. And
anything worthwhile is not easy
as she quickly learned when she
launched her own successful
interior decorating business in


Connecticut. However, her great-
est accomplishments were to help
somebody in need, as she has
demonstrated many times.
Lord Lift Us Higher was written
and directed by Jimmie Black
and Stacy Major, a mother-
daughter duo. Jimmie is happy to
be bringing her musical play to
her hometown area.
Lord Lift Us Higher is an origi-
nal musical play about the story
of a 14 year old girl's faith and
courage who shows us that even
in the midst of adversity, we can
find something positive to give if
we look for it.
This moving story is skillfully


delivered by an outstanding cast
of individuals who will lift your
spirits as you experience this per-
formance.
You will be transported in time
as you hear traditional gospel
music and many other original
songs.
The show has been performed
in several US cities and over seas.
It has received rave reviews and
continues to gain momentum as
people all over are inspired by its
message of hope and encourage-
ment. It appeals to both the
young and very seasoned.
Jimmie you did us proud!

'Bye Bye Birdie' this weekend at BHS
Blountstown High School students will star in the musical production, Bye Bye Birdie, Friday and Saturday nights
:at the BHS Auditorium. Conrad Birdie,. portrayed by Nick Myers, is the biggest rock & roll star of the 60's ever to be
drafted. Birdie's agent and song writer, Albert Peterson, is convinced he can make his fortune and marry his girl-
friend Rosie if he gets Conrad on the Ed Sullivan show to kiss a high school girl goodbye. Meanwhile, Albert's moth-
*er will do anything to break him up with Rosie. Kim and Hugo, the high school steadies, live in Sweet Apple, Ohio,
where most of the action takes place. For the rest of the story, join BHS students May 6th and 7th at the BHS
Auditorium. The performances will begin at 7:00 pm. See any cast member for tickets. Tickets are $5 and are also
available in the office at Blountstown High School. Pictured are cast members (seated, from left) Josh Lilly, Michael

by Scoutmaster Tom Aycock
Boy Scouts of America
Blountstown Troop 137 traveled
to Camp AlaFlo in Enterprise, AL
April 8 to participate and com-
pete at the annual Spring Council
Camporee.
This year's camporee was host

against each other in many
events, including fire-building,
knot-tying, tomahawk-throwing,
black-powder rifle-shooting,
archery, wall-climbing, stretcher
relay, and several other team-


building activities.
The competition was tough
and 21 separate troops partici-
pated. But, after all the points
were totaled, Blountstown's own
took second place in the fire-
building and measurement esti-
mation events. Troop 137's boys
also took second place in the
overall best traditional campsite
inspection.
In between events and into the
evening, several of the boys
worked on their individual rank.
and merit badge requirements.
Future plans for a trip to Wild
Adventures theme park in
Valdosta and summer camp are


currently underway. Troop 137
would like to thank everyone in
our community for their contin-
ued support.

"It was a real mental thing and
a big God thing," she remarks.
Coach Mike Pratt is extremely
proud of Kristen. "I thought her
performance was outstanding,"
he says. "She ran a really smart
race. We knew going into the race


she had her plate full with a cou-
ple of runners from private
schools, but Kristen never had
any doubt. She was very coura-
geous and she gave it all 'she had.
She represented Blountstown
really well and made us all very
proud."


A junior at BHS, Kristen has
set her sights on the gold medal
next year at state. "She has com-
mitted herself this summer to
work hard and put herself in a
position to win it all next year,"
says Coach Pratt. 'The pressure

Roof flaps These flaps are sections at the
rear of a race vehicle's roof that are designed
to activate; or flip up, if the air pressure flow-
ing across them decreases. In the case of a
vehicle turning backwards, the tendency for an
uninterrupted flow of air is to create lift. The
roof flaps are designed to disrupt that airflow
in attempt to keep the vehicle on the ground.

FWC to host meeting



on deer-dog hunting


The FlInd.ra Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)

sion of the deer-rldo hunting reg-
istration program.

"Just about everyone who
looked at the pilot Tpr.rgr.:,m in
northwest Florida last year has
commented how effective it was
in addressing conflicts between
Irid,-)'.:nTr,'" and dog hunters,"
I orkljiard said.
..He said 70 individual proper-
ties representing 57 deer-dog
hunt clubs participated in the
Northwest Region pilot program:
These properties ranged in size
from 40 to 31,000 acres and were
located in 14 of the 16 counties
within the region. There were no
retistered deer-dog hunting'
clubs in Escambia or Franklin
counties.
During the past hunting sea-
son in the Northwest Region,
there were 87.deer-dog hunting
e'mplaints, down 36 percent
from 137 complaints during.the
2003-04 hunting season. Only
five of these 87 complaints were


associated with registered deer-
dog hunting clubs. In contrast, a
review of the complaint data for
the North Central and Northeast
regions reflected an increase in
complaints.
The FWC is sending a mail-out
to dog-hunting clubs explaining
the expansion of the program. A
final report that includes any
comments received at the upcom-
ing meetings will be on -the agen-
da for consideration at the FWC's
June. 15-17 meeting in Daytona
Beach.
More information about the
proposed statewide deer-dog reg-
istration' program is available at

Four of the 2005 Blountstown
Tiger football players traveled to
Tallahassee on Sunday to partic-
ipate in the NIKE High School
Football Camp. This camp is by
invitation only and is reserved for
only the elite athletes from across
the United States. Over 300 play-
ers from around the nation
attended the camp and our Tigers
made a great showing.
At the camp, athletic testing is
done in several areas to evaluate
skill levels. The athletes are test-
ed in the 40 yard dash, 20 yard
shuttle run, vertical jump, and
bench press for reps. BHS had
two of the top ten 40 yard dash
times at the entire camp. Chance
Attaway had the seventh fastest
time with. a 4.45 second finish
and Arsenio had the tenth fastest
time at 4.49 seconds.


In the bench press, the players
are tested on how many times
they can lift 185 pounds. Once
again, BHS was well represented
by having two of the top three
best number of reps. Corey
Silcox, a linebacker for BHS,
posted the most reps of any of the
more than 300 athletes. Corey.
recorded 41 reps at 185 pounds.
Arsenio Ivory had the third most
reps with 34. This means that
these kids were in the top ten and
top three respectively out of the
more than 300 kids competing at
the camp.
Michael Guilford, a quarter-
back for the Tigers, had a great.
camp also., Michael looked great
throwing passes to some of the
best receivers in the nation. He
also ran a 4.65 second 40 yard
dash time.
This was a great experience for


our kids and gave them some
tremendous exposure. The web
site, Studentsports.com wrote a
nice article about our kids and
said we were well represented.
These kids have been represent-
ing us very well for some time
now and hopefully this camp will
draw attention from some of the
college scouts to see what is going
on in Blountstown. Congratula-
tions to these four kids.
We are in the middle of Spring
practice and we have many other
great kids in our program at this
time and I hope that through the
success of these four players, we
will have some of our other tal-
ented kids recognized this sea-
sonr. It s time lor some- Ioolbll!

Debbie Williams receives

The Zora Ellis Scholarship


Debbie Williams, has received
The Zora Ellis Scholarship from
The Delta Kappa Gamma Society
International. The honor society,
for women educators promotes
excellence in education and per-
sonal and professional growth of
women educators, leading in the
field of graduate scholarships
given to members and emphasiz-
ing leadership development for its
more than 130,000 members in
14 countries. A member of the
Society's Delta Epsilon Chapter
in Blountstown, Williams, is
attending Florida State
University.
Dr.,Beth Ann Richey of New
Jersey, International
Scholarships Committee
Chairman, announced the recipi-
ents following the committee's
recent meeting at International
Headquarters in Austin, Texas.
"We were able to grant 28
Scholarships' of $5,000 each for
2005," Richey said. Recipients
must have earned a Masters
Degree, be enrolled in a recog-
nized graduate program and have
been a Society member for at
least three years to qualify for
scholarship consideration. Since
its scholarship program began in
1971, The Delta Kappa Gamma
Society International has given
850 women educators $3.1 mil-
lion in scholarships.
In addition to the international


scholarships, many state organi-
zations and some. chapters have
scholarship funds to assist mem-
bers pursuing graduate study. In
2004 state and chapter organiza-
tions provided nearly $450,000
for scholarships for members. At
the international level during the
same time period, the Society
spent $140,000 for scholarships.

The honor organization of key
women educators was formed in
Austin, Texas, on may 11, 1929,
by Dr. Annie Webb Blanton from
a nucleus of 12 founders repre-
senting all levels of education,
kindergarten through university,
from various parts of Texas.
Professor of rural education at
the University of Texas, Dr.
Blanton was elected president of
the Texas State Teachers'
Association in 1916, the first
woman to hold the office.
Blanton was also the first woman
to serve Texas as State
Superintendent of Public
.Instruction, having been elected
to that post in 1918.
More than 2,000 members are
expected to attend the
International Regional
Conferences in San Antonio,
Texas; Williamsburg, Virginia;
Milwaukee, Wisconsin;
Cleveland, Ohio; and Turku,
Finland, in July and August.

The County Record, MAY 4, 2005, Page 12





Hiers testifies in bank trtal


remarked.
After an internal auditor real-
ized the loans were linked to the
same man, the defense alleges
individuals were utilized to obtain
"straw loans" on Watson's behalf.
In one instance, Carr said Dora
Davison of Cordele, Georgia, took
out a $196,000 loan from The
Bank. "At the time, she had zero
income and zero assets," Carr
alleged, adding that Davison
turned out to be Watson's girl-
friend.
In addition, the defense said a
financial statement for one of
Watson's businesses that was
given to bank. officials by Hiers
reportedly was identical to one
belonging to North Florida
Construction -.a company com-
pletely unrelated to Watson.
The defense is also alleging
Hiers was part owner of more
than one company that got a loan
from The Bank without their
knowledge he was affiliated with
those companies.

Hiers first to testify
Jed Higrs spent all of
Wednesday afternoon and half of
Thursday on the stand, giving
jurors the history of C & L Bank
and the changes he encountered
after the acquisition by TBC in
June 1999.
"The biggest misrepresentation
was who I reported to," Hiers
Etated, adding that he was under
the impression he would have a
direct line to TBC Chairman
Jimmy Taylor, Sr. in Birmingham
and would report to him.
However, he said he found out
waterr Terry Dubose, former owner
of Emerald Coast Bank in
Panama City and Destin that had
also been acquired by TBC, had
been told he ran all the banks in
Florida including the C & L
branches. "That was the first
"inclination there was going to be
change and I had been lied to,"
said Hiers.
Complications also arose,
according to Hiers, when TBC
decided to merge all the comput-
er systems at their banks in
Florida and Alabama. "It was just
a disaster," said Hiers. "Things
didn't post right."
SHiers told jurors about his
increasing frustrations. "I could-
n't even approve a $100 donation


to the local little league team," he
remarked. In May 2001, he threw
up his hands and called it quits,
but Jimmy Taylor, Sr. convinced
him to come back with a sweet
offer. "He promised me my con-
tract they'd promised for four
months and hadn't delivered,"
said Hiers, noting that his salary
was increased to $160,000 per
year, plus perks, and he was
made Florida Regional President.
With the added responsibilities
of supervising banks in Panama
City and Destin, along with the
Calhoun and Liberty branches,
Hiers said he was not personally
serving as anyone's loan officer. "I
passed all my loans to Regina
Nobles, Cindy Proctor, Lisa
Vickers, Terri Waldron, Vicki
Montford, and Thomas Flowers,"
he told jurors. "I tried to get out of
that phase because I didn't have
the time for the details or to mon-
itor it."
Hiers said loans over $100,000
were reviewed monthly by a
board. In August 2002, TBC
began holding a monthly presi-
dents' meeting in Birmingham to
discuss large loan relationships.
"We had to bring our top 10 loan
relationships per lender so they
knew about them," Hiers stated.
"Any way hundreds of thou-
sands in loans could be dis-
bursed without Birmingham
knowing?" Coppins asked.
"No, sir. I'm not that good,"
Hiers replied. "Too many eyes
had seen."
By November 2002, Hiers said
he was "begging for help" to
Jimmy Taylor; Sr. "I needed help
with a loan -administrator," he
stated. 'There's no way I can look
at all these loans and keep a han-
dle on them."
Although he didn't get a local
loan administrator, Jack Hamm
was hired in Alabama and head-
ed a peer review team that visited
each of TBC's branches. Hiers
said the team reviewed loans in
preparation for examiner visits.
'They had stricter guidelines and
needed to clean up the portfolio,"
Hiers noted. "I was told in 2001
that they were not going to sell for
10 years if I stayed. I was told in
2002 we've got to clean up for a
potential sale."
Not long after the peer review
team's visit to Florida, Hiers ran


into Hamm at a meeting with
Taylor. "I asked how was Florida
and the C & L group and he said,
'Everything's okay, I've got a few
questions on a couple of files, but
everything looked alright.' That
was the extent of it."
Just before Thanksgiving,
Hiers was among TBC's presi-
dents who were invited on a pres-
idents' cruise with Taylor as a
reward for a successful year.
When he returned, he learned
Hamm had come by the Bristol
branch while he was away and
taken files related to Ben Watson
including C & B, T & R, and
GFA. 'Thie proper way to do it
would have been to ask me to
come to Birmingham and bring
the files to discuss," Hiers
remarked. "Why do it behind my
back?"
The following day, Jimmy
Taylor, Sr., along with his son,
Jimmy Taylor, Jr., and David
Carter, both executives with TBC,
were in Bristol, returning the files
to Hiers with an apology for
Hamm's behavior. Taylor sent
Hamm to apologize in person a
day later.
Hiers said he tried to take
Hamm out to the Watson busi-
ness locations in December, but
Hamm wasn't able to go until
January. Hamm didn't appear to
be impressed with what he saw,
but Hiers said Watson's facilities
were nothing out of the ordinary.
"You go to a man's shop and you
see a tire off...I thought, this man
has never seen used equipment,"
Hiers recalled. "We go to another
site and he sees a bent fuel door
and he's writing all these notes."
Later that night, Hiers received
a call from Jimmy Taylor, Sr. "He
said Hamm told him we needed to
liquidate everything and take our
losses."
SA couple days later, Hiers said
he arrived to work to find Jimmy
Taylor, Sr., Chuck Roberts, who
was a member of The Bank's
advisory board, and Earl Durden,
chairman of the Emerald Coast
branches. Hiers said they told
him Hamm had some questions
and they wanted to get things in
order for the next examiners'
visit. The next day, David Carter
arrived and set up shop in a back
room at the Bristol branch to look
over some files. "By mid-morning.


I talked to Regina and she said
they still hadn't looked .at loan
files, but were asking questions
like, 'Has anybody paid you
money?'"
Hiers said he immediately con-
fronted Carter, stating, "You're
asking questions like you think
I've embezzled. Do you want my
resignation or do you want to fire
me now?" He said, "No, let's go to
lunch. After lunch, Regina walks
in and hands me files and says,
They're looking for these.'"
Later that day, Hiers was put
on administrative leave, but did-
n't take any personal items with
him, assuming the matter would
be cleared up. "I thought I was
going back at that time," he stat-
ed.
Later. he realized that wasn't


the case, and drafted a letter of
resignation. "I figured they were
trying to terminate me," he said.
"They knew I would be competi-
tion and they were looking for
cause so they wouldn't have to

outstanding support and prayers
for Joey," says Michelle, adding,
"If you want to make it through a
trauma in life, get in the presence
of God, find His rest, and have
total trust in Him."
After his first week at home
and work, Joey says, "It's a bless-
ing from heaven just to have my
life back."


pay me."
Hiers adamantly denied The
Bank's accusations that he
manipulated loan files and con-
cealed information, stating that
all the loans mentioned were dis-
cussed in Birmingham.
The trial will is expected to last
another two weeks. For complete
coverage, check out next week's

Card of thanks
The Bernice Barfield family would like
to thank you from the bottom of our hearts
for the love you showed, the food you
brought, the beautiful flowers you gave
during the loss of our loved one. Thanks
to the ladies from the Sunny Hill Church
and Springfield Church in Panama City for
their support. Thanks to Pastor Goodman
for the wonderful services you shared. A
special thanks to Wretha and Alvin Webb
and Joel Hathaway for the beautiful
singing. And a very special thanks to my
loving husband, Ricky for standing by me
all the nights and days and helping me
with mother. Thanks to Hall Funeral Home
for being so kind, you are all really great.

Card of thanks
From the family of Cheryl Dunn.
There are not enough that could ever
Describe the depth of gratitude our family
feels for each of you who gave of your-
selves in any manner during Cheryl's tran-
sition in going home. We thank God that
he so perfectly placed each of you in our
lives and in light of this, very special
friendships have sprouted. Thanks to all
of you who sent flowers, contributed,
prayed, cooked, visited and above all else
did as Christ would. Covenant Hospice
was wonderful-and will forever have a
place in our hearts. A special thank you to
the Church of God, Patsy Folks pastor
and congregation for your guidance and
ministry. The First Baptist Church
Blountstown, pastor Tom Stallworth and
congregation for your gift of service and
selfless love. Without these two churches
and a host of individuals who uplifted us in
prayer and provided more support than
describable, we would not have made it
through this.difficult time in our lives. All
That can be said is you are awesome. We
would also like to thank Poplar Head
Baptist Church for opening your doors for
the service, coordinating the specifics of
the service and of course the fulfilling
meal you all prepared for family and
friends after. This thank you would not be
complete without mentioning our Brother
in Christ, Gary Richerson. We can never
repay or say how much we appreciate
Brother Gary and his family. The mes-
sage that:was provided by Brother Gary
was beautiful, powerful and above all else
exactly" what Cheryl wanted. It was
Cheryl's desire to see her family meet
God and be a part of his family. Through
the words that were spoken at the ser-
vices the Dunn family will never be the
same. One of the Dunn brothers accept-
ed christ as his Savior and others have
started attending church in their area. As
Cheryl would have said, praise God!! If
we have left anyone out, please forgive
us, we are still working on additional,
more personal thank you cards. Please
'now all of you have impacted our lives
:remendously.

God Communicates
Through the Bible
Text: Hebrews 4:12


How does God speak? God called
Moses from the burning bush. He called
Samuel with a voice from the darkness.
He spoke to Alexander Smith through the
Bible.
Smith was a crewman on the "Bounty."
The "Bounty" sailed from England to the
South Seas in 1787. When it was time to
return home, the sailors did not want to
leave the pretty island girls and the life of
ease. Fletcher Christian led a mutiny
against Captain Bligh, taking the ship.
Nine men escaped to a remote island.
They learned to make whiskey and all
died from murder and disease save
Alexander Smith.
Smith was plundering' through the
belongings of a dead sailor when he ran
across the ship's long forgotten Bible. He
read it. As he read, God's Word peretrat-
ed Smith's soul. God spoke to Smith,
transforming his life. He taught the scrip-
tures to the women and children left on
the island. Twenty years later, a ship
found the island inhabited by people living
in prosperity. They were decent people liv-
ing free from crime and disease.
The most common way God speaks to
people is through the Bible. I cannot say
to what length God will go to speak.to
people. But God is probably not going to
speak in a loud voice from the skies when
all we have to do is read the Bible and
pray.
The Bible has all the truth that God
has spoken to man. You can always go to
the Bible to find God's will. It is our stan-
dard of faith and practice.
God will 'use a command, promise,
truth, or principle to speak to you. Always
trust that God will never, ever tell you to
do something that contradicts the Bible.
God still speaks today. Are you listening?
Ryan McDougald is a licensed,
ordained Free Will Baptist Minister host-
ing Bible study in the home. For more
information, call 674-6351.

paraphernalia, resisting arrest without vio-
lence, driving while his license was sus-
pended or revoked, and violation of pro-
bation.
According to the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office, Deputies Mark Mallory
and Eddie Dalton were traveling north on
Hayes Subdivision Road when Dalton
spotted Woods in a driveway at Cochran's
Trailer Park. The deputies were aware
Woods was wanted for violating his com-
munity control and turned around to pull
him over on the warrant.
As the deputies pursued him, Woods
allegedly accelerated, turning east onto
Jim Durham Road and running a stop
sign. He finally stopped at a home on
Hayes Subdivision Road and reportedly
ran toward the back of the residence.
Dep. Mallory advised the homeowner
of the situation and she allowed him to
search, adding that he lived in a camper
trailer behind her house. A search of the
trailer didn't turn up Woods, but revealed
two clear plastic bags of- marijuana, two
packs of rolling papers, and a pair of scis-
sors in plain view on a countertop.
Lt. Michael Bryant, BPD Major Rodney
Smith, Dep. Bliss Moreau, Trooper Jason
Britt, and FWC Officer Scott Cassels
joined Dep. Mallory and Dep. Dalton in
the search, along with K-9 tracking teams
from Calhoun Correctional Institution. The

A Blountstown woman was taken into
custody last week after allegedly writing
checks on her ex-husband's account.
Arrested April 25 was Diana Kay
Parnell, 33, charged with forgery and
uttering a forged instrument.

According to the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office, Inv. Ken Futch was con-
tacted by Parnell's ex-husband who
advised he had learned Parnell had writ-


ten a check for over $100 to a
Blountstown business from his account at
a Panama City credit union. He said he
had been divorced from Parnell for three
years and shared no accounts with her.
He further stated this was one of four'
checks taken from his truck and cashed at-
different locations.
Parnell was booked into the Calhoun
County Jail and given a conditional
release.

Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun
County Residents,
Two years ago I obtained my Florida
Dealer's License due to the frustration of
shopping for a used car. The following three
things made car shopping a big headache
for me:
*Haggling for the best price .
*Having to come UP with $2000 to $3000
for a down payment, taxes, title and tae


*Paving someone a $5000 $6000 profit
on a $10,000 automobile.-
Here's what we've done at Direct Automo-
tive Wholesale:
*All vehicles are Priced at the "Loan
Value". which is the. price credit unions and
banks will loan you on this vehicle.
*We require NO DOWN PAYMENT on apy
of our vehicles. We can even help with your
taxes and tat most of the time.

*At LOAN VALUE, we make a small profit
and you get a great deal!
The best part is we have family on the lot,
NOT HIGH PRESSURE SALES -PEOPLE.
