CRIME




Arrested meth cases


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor .
SIce. Crank. Glass. Chalk.
The Devil's Drug.
Nlethamphetanine goes by
many names and. according to
the Drug Enforcement
Administration. is now the
number one drug in rural
America. That statistic certain-
ly appears to be true in
Calhoun County' with five
arrested this week on meth
charges in different cases.
Walker Mayo. 38. and
Margaret Hood, 36, were arrest-
ed last Tuesday night for traf-
ficking in methamphetamine
and possession of drug para-
phernalia. Earlier that same
evening, John Sidney Marks
and Nellie Mayo were each,
charged with possession of
meth and drug paraphernalia.
Inthe early morning hours on-
Saturday. :Calvin ,Howard
"Bubba" Hayes, 50, was arrest-
'ed for possession' f meth and
drug paraphernalia. .
A single vehicle accident last
Tuesday night led to the arrests
of Walker Mayo and Hood.
According to the Calhoun
County Sheriffs Office. DeputyV
Nick Keller responded to the
crash on CR 274 West just


WALKER MAYO MARGARET HOOD


before 6 p.m. and
learned Mayo was driving a
1990 Ford pickup traveling
eastbound when the vehicle
crossed the opposite lane and
drove onto the shoulder of the
road. at which point he lost
control of the truck. The vehicle
reportedly rolled over. landing
on its side in a ditch.
Although Mayo and Hood
both sustained minor injuries
in the crash. they were report-
edly walking around at the acci-
dent scene. Dep. Keller immedi-
ately recognized Mayo as a sus-
pect in a drug investigation.
.Just half an hour earlier. Dep.
Keller had assisted in serving a
search warrant at Mayo's home.
Mayo wasn't at the residence
during the search, but a small
quantity of meth was recovered.
Florida Highway Patrol


JOHN S. MARKS


Trooper Denise Grimes soon
arrived on the scene to investi-
gate the accident. According to
Dep.. Keller's report, both he
and Trooper Grimes noticed
Mayo was acting strange with
incoherent speech, bloodshot
eyes, and a dazed look on his
face. An ambulance arrived.
and. while Hood and \Mayo were
seated inside it alone for a brief
time, an EMT who was in the
front of the truck reported over-
hearing a conversation bet-ween
the two of them, specifically
Mayo asking Hood if all the
"stuff' was picked up.
Both Hood and Mayo report-
edly declined medical treatment
after being in the ambulance.
Afterward. Hood was spotted by
Dep. Keller picking up items off
the ground that had previously
been inside the truck. He

CALVIN H. HAYES


observed her taking tools and a
large canvas work bag and plac-
ing them in her mother's vehicle
that had arrived on the scene.
Dep. Keller also noticed Hood
was limping as she carried the
items to the vehicle, even
though she declined medical-
treatment.
Because the behavior
appeared suspicious and the
removal of the items had been
done without authorization,
Dep. Keller received permission
from Hood's mother to invento-
ry everything Hood had placed
in her vehicle. A digital scale
was spotted on top of the tool
bag. along with a cigarette
package found to contain three
plastic bags with a substance

BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Don't call us, we'Ul call you.
That was the basic sentiment
in a letter from the Board of
County Commissioners (BCC) to
Mike Willis of Blountstown. The
correspondence, signed by
Commission Chairman Truman
Grant, advised Wilhs he would
not be allowed back on the
BCC's agenda to discuss
drainage problems on his prop-
erty until a survey is completed
on' the area in question Wilhs
contends the survey has already
been- done. and. regardless, he
believes it's within his rights to
be on the agenda.
Fifteen years ago, Willis and
his wife purchased a home on

Coach Bobby Johns, Arsenio Ivory



Win All-Big Bend highest honors


Blountstown High School
weightlifting coach, Bobby
Johns, has been named the All-


Big Bend Weightlifting Coach of
the Year by the Tallahassee
Democrat, while Tiger lifter


Arsenio Ivory captured the
Weightlifter of the Year honors.
"It was a great honor," Ivory
tells The County Record. 'There
were a lot of people who could
have had it, but I was chosen."
At the 2005 state meet, Ivory
broke the state record in the .169
pound class with a 335 clean and
jerk. With his 355 bench, he also
tied the state total record at 690
pounds.
A rising senior, Ivory has set
high goals for himself. "I want
one more [win]," he says. "All I
can ask for is to try and break


A NVRAR


some more records."
Coach Johns, who is Coach of
the Year for the second straight
time, says he is humbled by the
acclaim. "Honestly, I didn't feel
like I deserved [to be Coach of the
Year]," he remarks. "I made some
decisions at state that kind of
cost us the meet. But it's an
honor that I very much appreci-
ate."
As for next season, he is seek-
ing redemption for the Tiger
team's first runner up showing at
state this-past year in both
weightlifting and football:
"In football, we want to return
to the state championship again
and win it this time. We've got to
work hard to give ourselves that
opportunity again," he empha-
sizes.
Where weightlifting is con-
cerned, he is also after the gold.
"This [past year's team] should
have been our best wveighthlfting
team and we didn't win state
because of decisions I made," he
says. "I want a chance to make
up for that."

Bess photo used in advertising


John 'Brian' Goddin and Denika Lee Holley


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
If you happen to be walking
along the aisles of CVS Pharmacy
and notice a familiar face, your
eyes aren't playing tricks on you.
Blountstown's own Patrick Bess
is flashing a priceless grin on the
cover of a CVS hair product box.
A 1998 graduate of
Blountstown High School, Bess
literally stumbled into modeling
while attending college in
Oklahoma. "I was in the mall and
this lady with the
Transcontinental Agency walked
up to me and said, 'Have you
ever been in modeling?'"
At first, Bess was a little leery.
"She tried to give me her card
and I said, 'No, here's my num-
ber, you call me.'"
The agency rep turned out to
be legitimate and Bess soon
found himself at an open call,
posing for head shots. He even-
tually signed with Premiere
Modeling Agency and has done


work for the photo studio,
Glamour Shots.
Along the way, he's done sev-
eral photo shoots, but had no

Wld hogs are causing problems statewide


u Chuck Woods,
Univ. of Fla./IFAS
SFlorida's population boom now
.~cludes some 500,000 wild hogs
Whose piggish habits are causing
problems for farmers, residents
-and health officials as well as
-native flora and fauna.
S"Nothing personal, but the
:;only state with more wild hogs
than Florida is Texas," said Bill
I Giuliano, an assistant professor
of wildlife ecology at the
University of Florida's Institute of
!Food and Agricultural Sciences.
Wild or feral hogs can now be
found in every Florida county and
,:in at least 35 states including 1
to 2 million hogs in the
Southeast. Nationwide, their pop-
ulation totals about 3 million.
S"Because they are prolific
breeders, there is no way to com-
pletely eradicate them," Giuliano
-said. "Even with intensive hunt-
ing pressure, you're not going to
--get rid of them."
He said the problem can be
!traced to 1539 when Hernando
-DeSoto brought hogs into south-
I west Florida, and some of them
:found freedom in the New World.
::Nearly 500 years later, there are
some 3 million descendants of
these "pioneer pigs" across the
nation.
In Florida, some of the highest
densities of feral hogs can be
found north and west of Lake
Okeechobee where large forested
tracts, dense vegetation, abun-
dant water and limited public
Success provide an ideal environ-
ment for the pigs. Hog numbers
tend to be lower in areas with
intensive. agriculture or urban'
development.,
"Although they are a popular
target for hunters, wild hogs are
coming into conflict with people
Sand wildlife," Giuliano, said.
"Farmers are not happy when
feral hogs root up their fields, and
Health officials say the animals
carry diseases that could affect
.wildlife, livestock and people."
GIuliano. who conducts
research 'on the animals with
George Tanner, a'professor in the
UF wildlife ecology and conserva-
tion department, said hogs can
also host manv diseases and par-
asites. including hog cholera.
psuedorabies, brucellosis. tuber-
culosis, salmonellosis, anthrax,
ticks, fleas, lice and various
ii ukc aK n I ,iji-L15s.
S"Wild hogs. which usually
weigh 100 to 200 pounds, are
dangerous." Giuliano said.
"Although they prefer to run and
escape danger. they can be
ae;ressive when they're injured
or cornered. They can move with


by Tom Nordlie, UF/IFAS
iWith spring rain's promising a
bUmper crop of mosquitoes, some
Flondians may consider buying'
ex-pensive high-tech traps that
use carbon dioxide io lure the
bloodsuckers. But Unversity' of
Flonda experts warn that buyers
who don't do their homework
could still get bitten in the pock-
etlbook.
Pnced from $300 to $1,500,
the traps do capture mosquitoes
and other biting insects, said
Jonathan Day, an entomologist
with LIF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences. The real
question Is whether they will prp-
tect a yard from the pests. he
said.


The state is home to 74 species
of mosquitoes, of which about
half prey on people, he said. Only
a few species are likely to be con-
trolled with a C02 trap because
variables such as flight range,
habitat preference and feeding
behavior determine whether the
trap will capture mosquitoes in
large enough numbers to reduce
biting around the home.,
"Before you buy a trap, it's
crucial that you know what mos-,
quito species is causing your
problem," Day said. '"he traps
can be very effective if the target
insect is one that doesn't fly very
far or has its breeding site near
your home. But most of the mos-
See MOSQUITOES, Pa0p 7


contain large hogs and have tall
walls or a wire roof to prevent
them from escaping. And remem-
ber that hogs are powerful ani-
mals that are easily excited when
trapped."


Florida is second only to Texas in the number of wild hogs and they have
become a problem for both wildlife and people.


great speed and can cause seri-
ous injury with their tusks."
Acorns are their favorite food,
but they will eat almost anything,
including dead animals, and it
seems like they're always looking
for opportunities, he said. When
natural foods are scarce or inac-
cessible, hogs will forage on
almost any agricultural crop and
livestock feed. They will also feed
on tree seeds and seedlings,
causing significant damage in
forests, groves and plantations.
In Florida and the Southeast, this
may be a problem in regenerating
long-leaf pine forests.
In addition to the effects of
* consuming, knocking down and
trampling large amounts of native
vegetation and crops, the rooting
behavior of wild hogs causes sig-
nificant damage, Giuliano said.
Rooting digging for foods below'
the surface of the ground desta-
bilizes the soil surface, uprooting
or weakening native vegetation,
damaging lawns and causing ero-
sion. Their wallowing behavior
destroys small ponds and stream
banks, which may affect water
quality. They also prey upon
ground-nesting:Wildlife. including
sea turtles.
."Wild hogs compete for food
with other game animals such as
deer, turkeys and squirrels, and
they may consume the nests and.
young of many reptiles, ground-
nesting birds and mammals," he
said.."With their fine sense of"
Smell, wild hogs car'fifnd and
,Lco isume \i- ung domestic live-
stock. including poultry, lambs
and goats. Millions of dollars are
spent each year to prevent dam-
age from hogs.
Tanner said it may be possible
to linut further population e.xpan-
sion by hunting, various trapping


methods and exclusion.
"Hunting is an important con-
trol method for wild hogs because
it provides recreational opportu-
nities," he said. "Baited hog traps
may be more successful than
hunting, especially when the ani-
mals are nocturnally active. The
traps should be strong enough to

Fencing is an effective but
expensive control option for a
small area such as a garden, but
hogs are intelligent and resource-
ful animals that often find ways
through many types of fences,


u d i


Tanner said. Chain link fences'
buried at least 12 inches under.
the ground with heavy supports.
and posts, and various types of:
mesh or multi-stranded electric
fence provide the best results.

Raw oysters pose risk for some


AP photo by Josh Wickhom/Universlty of Florlda/IFAS
Glenn Hall, an associate professor of entomology at the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, checks honeybees
in Gainesville. He said the arrival of African bees in Florida is not unex-
pected and should not be viewed with undue alarm at this time.


'Killer bees' discovered


in Florida could spread


from Univ. ofFla./IFAS

. African. honeybees also
known as killer bees have
entered Florida, and a University
of Florida researcher says the
aggressive insects may eventually
spread throughout the state and
move into other areas of the
southeastern United States.
The bees, which tend to sting
in large numbers, have been
found and stopped at various
Florida ports over the past
decade, but now it looks like
they're here to stay, said Glenn
Hall, an associate professor of
entomology at UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
He said Florida's warm climate is
ideal for the bees, which could be'
bad news for the state's $16 mil-
lion honeybee industry.
"If African honeybees become
established in large numbers over
'the next few years, they will affect
the beekeeping industry and the
pollination of many crops," Hall
said. "Public safety, recreation
and tourism may also be affected,
leading to liability problems."
Hall, a bee geneticist -who
developed DNA markers to identi-
fy African honeybees, said that -
to the untrained eye they look
the same as resident European
honeybees.
African bees more aggressively
defend their nests th ..rropea..
beesijfrican bees may swarm as
man\ aS 16 times a year while
European bees swarm about
three times a year, he said.
The African bees invaded five
southwestern states in the 1990s
and: have periodically turned up
at Florida's deep-sea ports since
1987, Hall said. Until recently,
swarms entering through ports
such as Jacksonville. Miami and
Tampa have been successfully
captured in bait hives maintained


by the Florida Department -of
Agriculture and, Consumer
Services.
SHowever, new finds in the
Tampa area suggest that African
bees are spreading and becoming
established in the state, and they
are being found farther inland
from the ports," Hall said. "We did
not believe that enough bees
could arrive on ships to form an,
established population, but they
did so in Puerto Rico, and now
appear to be doing the same in
Florida."
He said the infestation around
Tampa is still small, and the bees
are not unusually aggressive. As
isolated swarms enter one by one
through the ports, daughter
African queens from the swarms
have no choice but to mate with
the resident European male.
drones. Fortunately, the hybrid
offspring are not as aggressive as
their African parents.
"Once the combination of
hybrids and new introductions'
reaches a critical mass, bees of
African descent will likely start to
mate with each other, resulting in
offspring with more African-like
characteristics," Hall said.
He said that the arrival of
African bees is not unexpected
and should not be viewed with
undue alarm at this time
"Concerns about the bees have
been exaggerated. wit.hi ,SpmIe
media and1motion pictures por-
traying swarms of deadly, sting-
ing insects invading cities," Hall
said. "Nevertheless, it's important
to be aware. African bees have
attacked and killed people and
livestock in Africa, in South and
Central America. and in other
states."
There have been 14 fatalities
in the United States, and hun-
dreds of .nonfatal stinging 'inci-
dents have been reported.


from the Fla. Dept. of Health

TALLAHASSEE Officials with
the Department of Health (DOH)
urge high risk Floridians to avoid
consuming raw oysters, which
often harbor the naturally occur-
ring bacteria Vibrio vulnificus.
"It's important to realize that
most cases of Vibrio vulnificus
can be avoided by taking the
proper precautions," said DOH
Secretary John O. Agwunobi,
M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H. "There are
several cooking techniques indi-
viduals in high risk groups can
use to enjoy oysters while
remaining safe."
Those most at-risk for develop-
ing serious illness from Vibrio
vulnificus include heavy drinkers
with liver damage and people
with certain health conditions
such as liver disease, diabetes,
cancer, stomach disorders or any
illness or treatment that weakens
the immune system. While other-
wise healthy persons eating raw
oysters with this bacterium are


less susceptible to becoming ill,
at-risk individuals are more like-
ly to become extremely ill or die.
People in these high-risk groups
are also at risk of illness if they
have wounds or cuts and wade in
estuarine areas or seawater
where the bacteria might be pre-
sent.
Thoroughly cooking oysters,
either by frying, stewing or roast-
ing, eliminates harmful bacteria
and viruses in the meat.
Consuming raw oysters that have
undergone a post-harvest treat-
ment process to eliminate the
bacteria can also reduce the risk
of illness. Initial symptoms of
Vibrio vulnificus infection can
include mild nausea, vomiting or
diarrhea, followed by distinctive
swollen skin lesions, and sep-
ticemia (blood poisoning). If
someone experiences these
symptoms after consuming raw
oysters, they should contact their
personal physician immediately
for diagnosis and to receive
antibiotic treatment.

Preventing business burglary


More than 60 percent of busi-
ness burglaries involve forcible
entry but most business owners
probably don't realize that a
quarter of all forced entry is not
through a door or wriridow, but
through roof or other access.
SA recent analysis: commis-
sioned by Safe at Work found that
business burglaries cost Florida
businesses $857.8 million a, year.
Safe at Work a coalition that
-includes the Florida Attorney
General's Office. crime prevention
advocates and Sonltrol of Florida
- is committed to educating arid
providing employers with the
tools they need to reduce internal
and external crime.
Tips for preventing business
burglary include:
Lessen the temptation.
Leave on plenty of interior and


exterior lights to increase visibili-
ty in the parking lot and by the
entrances.
Eliminate hiding places.
Trim shrubs in front of any win-
dow to 42 inches; trees to 7 feet.
Check exterior of building
for spots where a criminal might

After complaints drop during pilot project..



FWC deer-dog program expands


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
has voted to expand statewide, a
registration program for deer-dog
hunting on private lands for the
2005-06 hunting season. The
decision. voted on .in Daytona
Beach last week, was' based on
the overall success of a pilot pro-
gram adopted last hunting sea-
son .in the Northwest Region in
lieu of more restrictive nmesures.
According to a report present-
ed by Lt. Col Mike \Wiwi. deputy
-director of the Diision of Law
Enforcement, the addiuonal time
arid costs associated vith admin-
istering this program across tthe
state w\ill be minimal and man-
ageable for current FWC staff
and budget.
Wiw- said-70 individual prop-
erties. representing 55 deer-dog
hunt clubs, participated in the
pilot program. Those properties
ranged from 40 to 31.000 acres
and were situated in 14 of the 16
counties within the Northw\est
Region.
With the pilot program in
place. complaints dropped 27
percent. compared to the average
of the preTious four hunting sea-
sons. lore importantly. only' ive
complaints were associated \\th
registered deer -dog hunting
clubs. In comparison, a renew of
last season's complaint data for
the North Central and Northeast
regions, where registration \\as
not required, showed an increase:
in deer-dog hunting complaints
from the average of the previous
four hunting seasons.
At the conclusion of the 2004-
05 hunting season, the FWC
conducted a survey of all partici-
pants of the plot program to
determine levels of satisfaction
associated with registration
requirements and to identify any.
concerns with the program :or
process. Almost half the partici-
pants responded, and all said the
process of completing the appli-
cation, registering and complying
with the new requirements was
easy or very easy. Nearly 90 per-.
cent said they experienced lop
problems with -affixing their
assigned identification numbers
to their dogs' collars, and almost
70 percent thought the new reg-
istration was a valuable tool for
helping manage deer-dog hunt-
mg on pn{rate lands.
Dunng May, the:FWC con-.
ducted six public meetings
across the state to make certain
hunters and other interested
groups:


V were fully aware of the pro-'
posal for statewide registration,
/ had the opportunity to ask
questions to better; understand
the specifics of the proposal. and
V could provide comments.
These meetings helped clarify
some common misunderstand-
ings about the proposal and fos-


tered broader support from
hunters and other stakeholders;
Wiwi said.

This new statewide registra-
tion program \will require no-cost
registration "for anyone using
dogs to hunt or, pursue deer on
private 'lands in Florida 'during


the deer-dog training season and
during any open deer-hunting
season when taking deer with
dogs is permitted.

The Need For

Spiritual Power
^ by Paul F. Joyner PhD .

There is much being said today about
ritualul renewal. Robert Girard says,
"The church needs more than anything
-else to know Christ. They need to know
ilimn as the living Son of God and to know
,the blessed Holy Spirit, to know Him per-
:*onally and to know Him in the power of
-HIs resurrection'
SII any congregation needs spiritual
renewal, it is not necessarily because
:they do not nave a dynamic leader or
because they no longer have a strong
Sunday night or midweek services.
If a congregation is not accomplishing
God's purpose for it in the world, it is
Because thai congregation has lost per-
sonal fellowship with Jesus Christ. It has
evidently forgotten how to properly wor-
ship Him, enjoy Him, Ihank Him and to
praise Him II has forgotten how to pray
genuinely to Him. It has lost that precious
fellowship with Him and no longer has a
love relationship as it once had. Renewal
must come if the church is to accomplish
what God has planned for it.
The Holy Spirit is in the world today
renewing Himself in outstanding ways
He is a lender and faithful Spirit wooing
men and leading them to the cross where
Jesus Christ can save.
An elderly Chinese lady once said to
Dr Paul S. Rees. "What we need more
than anything else is Christ intoxicated
missionaries." That also goes for minis-
ters in the homeland and for every
Christian The more Christ intoxicated
members we nave. Ihe more the world will
pay attention to the church, and Ihe more
effectual that church will be in ministering
in a community
It religion subscribes only to ethical
and moral rules ol conduct then the
church has not found the secret to spiritu-
al power. If the church is only the equiva-
lent of a social or recreational club. it can-
not accomplish God's purpose for it in the.
world. It must be a spiritual powerhouse,
where men and women find transforma-
tion at the feet of Jes0s. Then the church'
will have compassion and will' be mightly'
used ol God
Faith is absolutely essential to such
renewal. Tre church must be filled with
overflowing faith We must believe God
ban do anything, anytime, anywhere if we
only to give Him.the opportunity to work
as He desires.

Following Jesus Will
Cost Your Own Life
Text: Luke 14:26-27
Heart and Life tells the story of George
Alley. Atley was serving with the Central
African Mission One day Ine Africans
attacked him viciously. He had a fully
loaded Winchester repeating rifle with
him. With it, the Africans would not stand
a chance. But Alley thought that if he
Skiled them, the Africans would not hear
Sthe Gospel. Alley's slaughtered body was
found in a stream. His rifle was there
untired and fully loaded.
Salvation is free, but following Jesus
will cost you your own life. Jesus said in
Luke 14-26 & 27, "If anyone comes to Me
and does not hate...even his own life he
cannot De My disciple (NIV)" As
Christians, we are expected to die to self
and live for Christ.
Barnes says this phrase, ..is a figu-
rative expression, denoting thai we must
endure whatever is burdensome, or is try-
ing, or is considered disgraceful, in follow-
ing Christ." That will mean different things
to different people.
To some, the cross means giving the
ultimate sacrifice of manyrdom. But to
most. it means something else To a
teenager, it could mean not laughing at
the dirty joke .To a young adult, it could
mean being a preacher instead of a
lawyer. To an adult. it could mean sup-
porting.your grown child going to the mis-
sion field To the rich. it could mean giving
all your possessions to follow Christ To
the one who lost everything including his
dignity to sin. it could mean being saved
and slaying where he is as a testimony to
the community. I I .
What will following Christ cost you per-
sonally? God only knows. But as Jim Elliot
once said, "He is no fool who gives what
he cannot keep, to gain what he cannot
lose." ::

II Samuel 18:14
Rev. R.W. Waterman
It seemsthat Kind David did not disci-
pline the handsome Absalom, or any of
his other children, (I Kings 1:6). What a
great injustice David did 10 his children by
not instructing them Ihal everyone who
sins will pay a price. A child must be gi en,
wise guidance, then allowed to experi-
ence the results if he makes wrong choic-
es. .This will develop self-control and a
feeling of responsbilay ,
Polly Appleby told th E t;.ry- 'I. an,
closely acquainted with a family who has
good looking twin boys in middle scrnoil.
I love these boys but am sad when I think
what iney could have become' They are
often in. trouble with the police. When.:
anyone approached the family lo discuss
the boys' problems, the answer is the
same Why do people always blame the
twins lor everything7 The parents try hard
to protect their boys irom bearing any
responsibility tor their actions."
If God has given you the responsibility
of being a parent or a teacher, learn to say
no. Learn to discipline. Allow children to
feel the unpleasant consequences of bad
behavior This will help them develop
self-control. Israel's beloved king failed to
teach righl principles to his lanily whicn
brought sin and tragedy into iteir lives.

Meth busts


for meth and weighed an estimat-
ed 15.7 grams. exceeding the
necessary 14 grams to constitute
trafficking. NMayo was placed
under' arrest, and Hood was-
charged after being treated at
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital for her
injuries.
' About a half hour prior. to the
accident. investigators served a
search warrant on the home of
Nellie Mayo on Baggett Loop
Road. Inside; they discovered
meth in a bedroom Mayo shared
with John Sidney Marks. A pipe
was also recovered from the home
and the couple was placed under

The' final.. meth arrest of the
week.occurred just after midnight
Saturday when Dep. Jared
Nichols spotted a Chevy pickup
southbound on SR 69 North

pulled the truck over at the inter-
section of SR69 and Lambert
Street and spoke \ith the driver;
Cal\in "Bubba" Haves.
According to Dep. Nichols'
report. Hayes appeared extremely
nervous and fidgety, in addition
to ha\lng bloodshot eyes. Hayes;
reportedly stated he was coning
from Jimm\'s Bar on SR.69, but
had not consumed any alcoholic
beverages
Deput- Eddie Dalton, who had
arrived to assist, noticed Hayes
repeatedly putting hi hands in-
his pocket and asked if he had
anything illegal on him. Hayes
reportedly gave consent to search
both him and his vehicle, then
emptied his pockets. Dep. Dalton
spotted a hollowed out ink pen.-
often referred to on the streets as
a "straw" partially sticking out
of Hayes' pocket. Dep. Dalton
removed it and discovered a pow-
der residue Inside It. He then
recovered two small plastic bags


containing a.brown substance in
Haves' pants watch pocket which
Hayes allegedly admitted \'as
meth. He, then reportedly con-
fessed to using meth within .the
hour prior to the stop..
'Hayes was subsequently
placed under arrest and report-
edlv admitted to purchasing two
bags of meth for -$80 outside
Jimmy's Bar.
Marks, Nellie Mayo, Walker;
Mayo;, and Hood all remained in
custody at the Calhoun County
Jail at press time. Hayes was

The County Record, JUNE 22, 2005, Page 14


BCC Agenda issue continued


they realized there was a serious
drainage problem on their prop-
erty. "There is a three foot wide,
,three foot deep drainage behind
'the house," Willis tells The
County Record. "Lots of snakes
started getting in it. I realized it
was not running water, but water
put there by the City of
Blountstown."
Because he lived outside the
city limits, Willis first took his
concerns to the BCC. Over the
years, .he says former District 5
Commissioners John Lindsey
and Duane Capps attempted to
assist, but the problem never.
was resolved. ."[Former
Commissioner] Donnell Whitfield
came up with a solution to build
a ditch across Chipola Road,"
Willis recalls. 'They used a grant
of around $300,000 to lay 'pipe
from where the water comes from
the, city to relieve the water up to
Billy Carr Chevrolet. After the
ditches were dug, DEP
[Department of Environmental
Protection] closed them down."
SWillis continued pursuing a
solution and says last year, the
'BCC advised him they had an
easement on his property. He
'disagreed, resulting in the
Commission ordering a. survey
back in November. Willis says the
survey never happened and, after
more persistence on his part, it
was ordered in January. A cou-
ple more months went by with no
action and Willis pressed the
issue. As a result, the BCC
'reportedly placed another survey
order in April. "It was finally
done in April, [Surveyor Frank]
Snowden's people; came out
here," Willis reports. "But. the
ditch description was not reflect-
ed properly on the easement."
SDespite all the controversy,
Willis says he would be more


than willing to give the county
the easement if he believed
they'd take care of it. "But they
won't maintain it, they've never
maintained it," he insists.
The next dilemma for Willis
soon followed. "The County
Commissioners voted two
months ago that anybody who
paid $400 would be allowed to
have drainage pipes put in so
they'd [the owner] could have
access to their property," he
says. "I was the first person
there. I went to [Building
Inspector] Dowling Parrish's
office and paid $400 and got a
receipt. Then, [District 5
Commissioner] Jim Pickron told.
them not to do it. They stated it
was for driveways only, even
though they never stated that
before."
Willis says his $400 was
turned over to the Clerk's Office
and, he went there seeking his
refund. "I was told I had to wait-
until the next Commission meet-
ing so they could decide about
giving'back my $400," he
remarks.
The final straw for Willis came
next. As he has for years during
his fight with the county, Willis
asked to be placed on the June 7
BCC agenda. He soon received a
letter from Chairman Grant
advising him his issue wouldn't
be heard. "At my direction, the
Clerk's office has not placed you
on the agenda for that meeting,"
Chairman Grant stated in the
letter. "You have discussed your
drainage problems extensively at
almost every meeting for well.
over a year. The Board is aware
of, your problems and. has
authorized a survey on the
drainage ditches in that area to
determine what, if anything, the
county, can do about it. You will


be notified when the survey is
complete so that you can again
come before the Board."
Grant goes on to state. "A reg-
ular Board meeting is a meeting
to conduct countr- business. It is
not a public hearing where every
member of the public Is due an
opportunity to speak."
\Willis remains firm in his
beliefs that citizens have a right
to address the Board even if
they've been dozens of times
before on the same issue. This is
not just about me. this means
they've stomped on the nehts of
even individual of Calhoun
County...that's how I read it." he
remarks. After 20 years in the
military. Willis says he is not
about to give up this fight. "My
plight is a simple one. I will not
allow anybody to step on my
rights or your rights."
The County Record left phone
messages for Chairman Grant.
as well as Commissioner Pickron
who serves Willis' district, to
obtain the county's side of the
matter. However. our calls were
not returned. VWllis received a
letter Friday from Chairman
Grant denying his recluest to be
on the agenda tor the June 21
County Commission meeting.

idea the CVS product with his
picture on the box cover had hit
the shelves until last week. "He
was at The Moon [a club in
Tallahassee] when a girl came up
and said, 'You look like a guy on
a box at CVS where I work,'" his
iiother, Barbara Bess, tells The
County Record.
Patrick went back to
Tallahassee the next day and
stopped by CVS. They only had
one .box left. so he immediately


purchased it. ."When he took it to
the cash register the girl looked
at 'him and then looked at the
box. and said, .'It's you!"'
Naturally. Patrick couldn't resist
flashing another of- his now
famous grins.

As for his future plans in the
modeling industry. "I just want
to go as far as I can." says
Patrick. "I want to make it to the.
red carpet in California!"

Street. They described terril-ing
experiences with a neighbor's
pitbulls who terrorized residents
on their block. "One neighbor,
was out walking her toy dog and
it was attacked by a pitbull,"
John reported. "She tried to save
her dog and it latched onto her
ankle." He said the woman made
her wayt t heir house and he
and his wife took her to the
emergency room for treatment.
"It got to where I was afraid to
go to my mailbox," Dorothy stat-
ed.. She also recalled the time
her cat was attacked on their
front porch by another neigh-
bor's dog. "It cost us a $500 vet
bill to save her life."
SAcross town in the subdivision
near Calhoun-Liberty Hospital, a
group of residents told the
SCouncil they.are experiencing
the same problems. One 'woman
said her flowers had been
destroyed 'and her front yard
*used as a bathroom. "We call it
.Dog Street instead of Marie
, A\enue," she stated.
S James Williford, a blind resi-
dent of the Marie Avenue area,
iold the Council he received a,
bulldog a couple years ago that
has become a help to him, assist-
Ing him in his walks around the
neighborhood to get exercise.


However. unruly animals allowed
to run amok have attacked'the
pet that has enabled him to have
the freedorn to walk around his
block. In addition, the neighbor-
'hood dogs running loose have
even come on his lawn and,
jumped his pet. \hen he tried to
break them up, one clamped.
down on his arm. "We need a
leash law- in town," .Williford
insisted. "I moved here 35 years
ago from California and ,where,
we lived we had to have our dogs
on a leash or restrained."
Councilman John Tomlinson.
Jr. who lives in the same neigh-
borhood as Williford agreed. 'The
dogs scare me," he remarked.
"I've got grandchildren and some
days, if you're not out there with
them, you're afraid...it shouldn't
be' .where we can't, walk the
streets or ride our. bikes. If it
takes a leash law, I'm all for it. I
doubt there's a neighborhood in
town that doesn't have this prob-
- lem."
City Attorney David .House
'suggested the' Council review
animal control ordinances from
neighboring communities and
draft a proposed leash la\w for
Blountstown. '
The Council voted unani-
mously to proceed.
