It started with a small bite.
Maybe from a spider or mosqui-
to, she was never really sure..,
Nine months later, it ended
in the intensive care unit at Bay
Medical Center when her heart
stopped beating.
Rhonda Lynn Crawford of
'Altha was just 33-years-old
when she passed away Friday
in Panama City. Family mem-
bers say a staph infection led to
bacterial meningitis and her
major organs simply shut down.
Her husband. Lamar. is hop-
ing her death won't be in vain.
He wants others to be aware of
ho\v deadly an ordinary infec-
tion can become. '
He says the series of events
that led to his wife's passing
began last September around

About two months ago.
Rhonda's face finally was clear
of the boils and she thought all


was well. However, about three
.weeks before her death, another
boll appeared on her chin. "It
was the first one we'd seen in a
while." says Lamar. "\We kind of
knew right then she probably
had a staph infection."
The following weekend.
Rhonda's brother asked her and
Lamar to keep his children for a
couple days. "That whole week-
end, the baby was kind of whiny
so she carried him around and
babied him," Lamar recalls.
"That Monday, she woke up and
could hardly move her head.
Her neck was real stiff so I took
her to a local doctor. He said it
was just a sprained muscle and
worked with her neck, trying to
get her neck worked out."

Keeping her wits helped a,
Mossy Pond woman survive
what could have been a deadly.
rattlesnake bite over a week
ago. '
Alone on her farm on Isoletta,
Road. Dawn Elrod, 43, knew,
something was up when her
hybrid wolves began stirring
about making noise around
4:30 pm. on Friday, June 17.
Her horse was out grazing, so
she headed to the barn to see if'
there was a problem with any of
the other animals still inside.
Just as she reached the door of
the barn, she met the source of
all the commotion: a coiled rat-
tlesnake.
'It was huge," Elrod tells The
.County Record. noting that she
counted at least 13 rattles on
the snake. Arming herself with
a maul tool, she struck the
snake twice, attempting to kill
it. That's when it lunged'
between three and a half to four
feet and bit her left hand.
At the moment. Elrod says ,
she was completely alone with
her husband hundreds of miles
away in South Florida. She
knew she had to keep a calm


head in order to survive. Her
first thought was to call 911 so
she headed inside her house
and grabbed a cordless phone.


As she
dialed,
s h e
found
her .38
caliber
gun and
headed
back
outside
to the
barn. "I
went out
there
and shot
at him
while I
was still
on the
phone
telling
them
where I
w a s
located."
El rod
recalls.
"1 put

sat down in her yard, chewed
the leaf, and waited, clutching


her phone.
"One point before the ambu-
lance got here. I almost quit
breathing, so I concentrated on
taking those breaths," she says,
adding that she also knew she
needed to keep herself talking.
"1 tried to call a couple people m
the area. but all I got was
answering machines."
Within minutes., an
Emergystat Ambulance was on
the scene. "By that time. I
couldn't walk or move," says
Elrod. "[The paramedics] were
so good, I praised those guys."
Elrod was taken straight to
Bay Medical Center and admit-
ted to the intensive care unit.
"By the time I got there, the
swelling was up to my shoulder
and under the breast -,very
close to my heart and very close
to me possibly not making it.

It was .found in the vestibule of the

People leave a lot of things at church -
umbrellas, handkerchiefs, scars, pocket-
books, hats, etc. But this was the first
time I had ever known of anyone forget-

It was a strong heavy stick capable of
supporting a big man.
As I thought about it, I decided maybe
it had not been forgotten. Maybe it had
been discarded the user felt he would
Snot be needing it any longer. The fact that
it was never reclaimed seemed to indicate
as much
Could it be possible that perhaps
something happened to the owner that
night while he was at church similar to
what happened to the man sitting at the

in John chapter 5
You remember at a cenain season an

want to be made well?" There is an impli-
cation in inis question that the man might
not really want to be made well If he was
well, he would have to assume some
responsibility for his own welfare. There
Share many people even today who prefer to
have someone else take care of them
than to care for themselves.
In tins case. the man responded affir-
matively, Jesus said, "Then, get up, pick
up your pallet and go home Jesus was
saying 'Slop waiting for circumstances to
get right. stop looking for somebody else
to help you, gel up. roll up your pallet and
get going."
And, to his utter amazement, he was
well
w In my mind I can see the owner of that
walking stick nobbling up the church steps
that night. Either he was ashamed of the
stick or didn't want to be bothered with it
during service so he left it in the
vesibule. : .
Maybe he looked around at the other
250 or so people there who seemed
happy and well thai might have inspired
him to really want to be well.

power of God maybe that increased his
faith in the great Physician. I don't know
what happened except that he left his
walking stick and never reclaimed it.

Events Investigated During the Past Week by BPD and CCSD


Dear Editor,
I was amazed, not surprised
that the Board of County
Commissioners told Mike Willis
to stay off the Board's agenda.
First, I would say that Truman
Grant, Board Chairman did not
compose the letter Mr. Willis
received. Second, the first meet-
ing Mr. Willis misses, he maybe
subject to getting more water
drain off from North Hwy. 20 and
West end of South Ave. which is
being proposed.
The Board should get Sonny to
read to them A Fairy Tale called
"Government in the Sunshine" or
F.S. Ch. 125 before advising any
citizen he is not allowed a chance
to speak to any Board meeting.
I will give Sonny O'Bryan cred-
it for taking care of Calhoun
County Business and he should
be, compensated for doing so,
beyond his present salary he
should receive at least 80% of
each County Commissioners'
salary, and please do not take
any more time off, since nothing
is accomplished when he is out oi
town.
I have been to two Board meet-
ings since Nov. 04 and say that
three of the five commissioners'
were totally lost m taking care of
County Business, and could not
follow the Board's agenda, so why
have one?
.Mr. Willis since you have been
denied a chance to speak at a
Count' Commission Board meet-,
ing. I have a form you need to
sign and be assured you can get
on the agenda.

PREPARING FOR THE WORST: Calhoun-Liberty Hospital staff, along with law enforcement officers, firefighters,
ambulance workers, and county emergency officials, took part in a drill Tuesday morning to prepare them
for disaster. The scenario involved a trailer crash on Trammell Bridge resulting in a liquid ammonia spill and
dozens of injuries. A twist .occurred when a van of terrorists carrying a biologicalagent collided with the
trailer on the bridge. Hospital 'Administrator Ben Burnham says everyone involved in the drill did an out-
standing job. He notes that the.hospital now has decontamination equipment, courtesy of a grant award,
and he's hoping this drill will help them become eligible for other necessary equipment.


City employee Charles Sherrod was one of Tne willing victims in the emergency drill Tuesday morning.

Meningitis


over a five day period, but by
Friday night, June 17, she was
worse.
"She was delirious," says
Lamar. "She hadn't had any
sleep all week because of her
neck hurting. She couldn't lay
down and get comfortable."
At 10:30 that evening, he took
her ,to the emergency room at.
Bay Medical Center. Lamar says
physicians checked her neck and
noticed white splotches all over
her legs. They immediately did a
spinal tap. "As soon as he got the
fluid out, he said she had menin-
gitis," .says Lamar. "He did a cul-
ture and said it was bacterial
meningitis, some of the hardest
to get rid of."
Lamar says Rhonda was con-
scious when he left her briefly
the following morning to take
their 10-year-old son and 13-
year-old daughter to Rhonda's
brother's house in Wewahitchka.
'That was the hardest moment."
he recalls. "She was begging me
to make (the doctors and.nursesl
stop. She was hurting: I never
talked to her again after I left "
When he returned from the
quick trip to his brother-in-ladw's
house, Rhonda was uncon-
scious. Doctors reportedly
induced a coma to treat her. "Her
organs -started failing." says
Lamar. "The staph was all
through her.'
By Friday morning. June 24.
Rhonda succumbed to the infec-
tion. Stunned family and friends
gathered Sunday at the Peavy
Funeral Home Chapel to say
goodbye. .
S"Just spend as much time as
you can with your loved ones."
Lamar advises others. "And be
aware of a dangerous disease like
staph and meningitis."
Now a single father. Lamar's
neighbors along the Chipola
River, Edwin Strawn and
Charmaine Hunter. have estab-
lished an account to help him
care for his and Rhonda's two
children; along with his 18-year-
old son who lives with him. and
help pay any funeral expenses
not covered by life insurance.
Anyone wishing to contribute
can donate to the Rhonda
Crawford Funeral Account at The


Bank.
"I'd just like to thank every-
body for all their prayers and
help keeping us strong," Lamar.
remarks. 'There's a lot of family
around to help us.
Rhondas complete obituary
appears in this issue.
'According to the Calhoun
County Health Department,' the
type of meningitis Rhonda had
was not a community health
threat. Local health officials were
in touch with the infection con-
trol nurse at Bay Medical Center
during Rhonda's treatment. 'The


cerebral spinal fluid came back
after 72 hours with no growth,"
Lisa Taylor of the Health
Department tells, The County,
Record. "In the long run, it was
not a community health threat.
Staph infection was the biggest
thing for her."
The Crawford family's neigh-
bors have established a fund
to assist them. Anyone wish-
ing can contribute to The
Rhonda Crawford Funeral
Account at The Bank.

the bite," she jokes.
Looking at the size of her scar,
Elrod knows she w-as blessed to
have survived the bite of such a
large, poisonous snake. "My
husband measured and,
between the two fang [marks], it
was an inch and s'een-eighths."
Although Elrod lives out in
the country, this is the first time
she's.,had a near-deadly rat-
tlesnake encounter. "I've been
here over seven years, and never
had a problem [with rat-
tlesnakes]," she ,points out,
adding, "I think it camie from
across the road because they'\:e
been doing some clearing."
Nearly a week and a half after
the incident, Elrod says she is
feeling much better. "I think I've
recovered because I have use of
my hand now. but I still have
some swelling" She says the
Plaitaun leaf has become part ol
her dajly regimen during recov-
er\ and she has even made a
Plantain ointment and rubbed it
on her hand regularly. "That has
kept the flesh from dying or even
peeling like a sunburn.
As for the snake? She hasn't
seen him since firing the four
shots from her .38. "I think he
was so shocked, he just wanted


to go away

Boyd discusses VA


$1 billion shortfall


Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida), a member 'of the
Military Quality of Life and.'
Veterans Affairs. Subcommittee,'
released the following statement
after the Department of Veterans
Affairs last week admitted it faces'
a $1 billion shortfall in' VA
healthcare funding in 2005:
"The understated 2005 health-
care budget by the Department of
Veterans Affairs comes as no sur-
prise, as members of the House
Appropriations Committee,
including myself, and many vet-
erans groups were skeptical of
the low budget requests for fiscal
year 2005. If the VA had, been
upfront about the $1 'billion
shortfall earlier this year, I am
confident that Congress would
have remedied this problem and
provided the necessary funding
for our veterans healthcare needs
in the NMllitary Quality of Life and
Veterans Affairs Appropriations
bill passed earlier this year in the
House.
Our most effective means for
correcting the VA s mistake is for
Congress to pass an emergency
appropriations bill before August
that will cover the VA, funding
shortfall this year. I have joined
with over 100 of my colleagues in
the House of Representatives in
requesting an additional S 1.3 bil-
lion in veterans healthcare fund-
ing. We cannot shortchange our
nation's heroes. Our government
ias made a number of promises
o the men and \iomen awho
,erved in our nation's armed


forces, and as a combat veteran.
I consider these promises made
Sto our Veterans a sacred obliga-
tion tat must be upheld."

and began -approaching a group
of people standing outside at the
rear of the residence. As they
walked up, Dep. Moreau noticed
movement inside a pickup truck
and shined a light into the cab of
the vehicle, stating in a loud
.voice, "Sheriffs Office.'" He then
reportedly spotted, a white male,
later 'identified as Hobby, who
appeared to be assisting a white
female with rolling a marijuana
joint. In clear view, Dep. Moreau
saw a tin can that contained
what appeared to be loose mari-
juana. After smelling.the odor of
burnt cannabis, Dep. Moreau
asked Hobby,. "What are you
rolling?"
:Hobby reportedly never
turned around to see who was
asking, kept rolling the joint, arnd
replied, "None of your [expletivel
business." He then turned to see
who was asking and stated. "Oh,
expletiveel" and allegedly tossed
a Spongebob Squarepants tin
canister out the passenger side
.window. The can reportedly con-
tained loose cannabis and rolling
papers.
Dep. Moreau then told Hobby
to step out of the vehicle and he
allegedly refused, stating he was
on private property and there
was nothing the deputy could do
to 'him. Dep. Moreau opened the
driver's side door and Hobby
allegedly attempted to close it on
him. Dep. Moreau and Dep.
Dalton then forced the door open
and removed Hobby from the
truck. Once diffside the vehicle,
Dep. Moreau advised Hobby he
was under arrest and ordered
him to place 'his hands behind
his back. Hobby' allegedly
became argumentative and bel-
ligerent toward the. deputies.
Stating, I'm not going to jail!"
As Dep. Moreau attempted to'
place handcuffs oh Hobby, he
allegedly snatched his right arm
away and almost struck Dep.
Dalton in the face. After a brief
struggle, the deputies were able
to cuff Hobby. When they placed
him in the rear of Dep. Moreau'-
patrol car, he allegedly spit on
the plexiglass cage
.The teenage girl was inter-
viewed by deputies with her
Smother's permission and advised
Hobby was showing her how to
roll a joint. The girl said she and
a friend wound up'at the party
when their vehicle :broke down
nearby.
S During the investigation,
Tyrell Odom. who rents the
house, approached Dep. Moreau
and appeared under the influ-
ence of alcohol. Odom allegedly
kept intervening as Dep. Nloreau
tried to' investigate, reportedly
stating it was his house and his
party. When he persisted 'to

Count the Cost
of Following Jesus
Text: Luke 14:28-32
A woman bought a new TV. After the
warranty expired, it; quit working. She
called the company that sold her the TV.
Once the repairman had fixed it, he tried
to sell her repair insurance. If she paid a
fee, all of her future repairs were free.
The woman was unsure about it. She
wanted some time to think it over and con-
sider whether it was a good deal. To which
the repairman said, "Well, ma'am, if you
want free service, you have to pay for it."
In a world of "buyer beware," it cer-
tainly pays to carefully consider a pur-
chase before spending your hard earned
money. The same is true of other aspects
of life. Jesus said that a wise builder sits
down and figures the cost of a tower
before he begins to build it. He also said
that a wise king sits down and considers
the consequences of going 10 war with
another king.
Jesus teaches that a person should sit
!down and consider the cost of following
Him. Your walk with Christ is the most
important thing in all of eternity. You are
smart enough; to look at the checkbook
before you buy groceries. You test drive
the car and check under Ine hood before
you buy II You look at the blue print and
the estimate from the contractor before he
builds the house. You should certainly be
wise enough to count the cost of following
Christ.
Many people don't even know that
there is a cost While it is true that salva-
tion is something that cannot be earned
because it is God's free gift, following
Christ will cost you everything you have.
God wants all of you. Christ paid an
awesome .price to save your soul from
Hell. God wants your complete surrender.
Consider it.. It is truly worth it.

Keep God

In Your Heart
by Rev. R. W. Waterman

Ambassadors For Christ
II Corinthians 5:20
In this scripture we discover in a very
clear way the great fundamentals of the
Christian faith. Here is God's great act
called the Atonement, Jesus the sinless
one made sin for us v.14,21. Here is a
man's great potential called redemption,
we are new creatures in Christ v.17, shar-.
ing the righteousness of God'in Christ
v.21: Here is the church's great message
called evangelism, ambassadors for
Christ sharing the news of reconcilial;on
v.20,19.
SThe commitment of God's people to
this task helps us to catch the vision also.
Rev. Harold Bonner gives us this story:
SThe late Dr. Howard Hamlin was a power,
ful inspiration 0t the church A dedicated
Christian and distinguished surgeon in
Chicago, his patients ranged from the
poor to professional athletes lo the editors
of the Chicago Tribune. When, in
response to the request of the church, he
resigned his medical practice to go as a
medical missionary co Africa, the story
was cared on page 1 of the Tribune.
One of his longtime medical associ-
ales read Ihe story and phoned him in
curious unbelief. The friend, a Jewish
doctor, asked,, "Howard are you
nuts?...Are you all right? Do you know
what you are doing?". Dr. Hamlin replied,
"Yes, Josh, in the words of one of your
forebears, the Apostle Paul;:, he love of
Christ constrains me'."
It is that love and that same assign-
ment that should, move us to action today.
Does it? I wonder.


Dr. Lewis Bullard
church is a great privilege.
Over many years of service in
the church I have discovered that
we humans ha\'e two basic needs:
*The need to be loved,
*The need to love...
In the case of the first, being
loved, being loved by God is
essential to the sense of "belong-
ing." The unconditional love of
God establishes onre with the con-
fidence in life that enables the
doing of the "impossible!" To be
unconditionally loved by God
means that we are a part of His
Kingdom now! The need "to love"
flows readily out of our "being
loved" and enables us to share
lile with those around us in a
meaningful way.
I am excited about coming
back. to First Presbyterian
Church of Blountstown. our new
time for worship will be 10:00 a..
(CT) starting July 3, and each
Sunday afterwards.
` The church is located at 20325
N.W: Evans ,St., (next.to Peavy
Funeral Home).

remarks.
Alday points out that students
taking the course will not have to
spend anymore time in the class-
room than they would in a nor-
mal high school course. "It will be
for one hour per day it's like one
of their other classes. After one
semester, they should be trained
and ready to go to work."
SGrantham says it's difficult to
keep qualified staff in Calhoun


County and he's hoping this pro-
gram will help. "There's a lot of
competition in this area," he
emphasizes. "Not just employers
here, but home health agencies
and these agencies you have to
rent staff from sometimes.
They're always in the area and
trying to outbid you for workers -
outprice you. It's' easier for
[employees] to leave here and go


somewhere else and find some-
body to pay them a. little more."
However, for those seeking a
career that will keep them in
their hometown, Grantham says
the CNA program provides a
great opportunity. In addition,
those interested in climbing the
healthcare career ladder can uti-
lize the CNA program to begin
their journey. "A lot of registered
nurses started out as nursing


assistants," Grantham notes,
adding, "You can't work your way
up, but you can get your foot in
the door and determine whether
you want to pursue nursing as a
career."
The School Board will discuss
the proposal at their next meet-
ing set for Monday, July. 1), at 5
p.m. in the basement of the
Calhoun County Courthouse.
