history buffs gathered to talk
The workshop was held in
the old Frink Gym at the
Panhandle Pioneer Settlement
in Blountstown where founders
Willard and Linda Smith, along
with a host of volunteers, have
been working for over a decade
to promote the panhandle's
rich history. They are certain
that advertising our area as an
eco/hentage tourism destina-

through the Settlement's gates
and more money to Calhoun
"We can't be Disney World
and I don't think we want to
be." Wayne Martin. a local
business owner and Settlement
supporter, stated. "But we
could capitalize on the river we
have here. We could focus on

Willard Smith noted that the
Settlement has been discovered
by many groups traveling
across Florida and he's certain
that a little publicity could
draw even more crowds. "About
two or three years ago, a group
of people walking the IFlorida
National Scenic Traill from
South Florida...heard about
the Settlement along the way
and asked if they could pitch a
tent for a couple days here,"
Willard recalled. "We were tick-

Smith said he has heard
comments about the "rif-raf a
scenic trail could attract to the
community, but he says he's
found just the opposite. "[Trail
users are very financially
secure and educated and any-
thing but rif-raf." He added
that eco/hentage tourism is an
ideal way to improve the local
economy. "ITourists] spend
money, leave, and don't
demand any services."
Howard Pardue of the
Florida National Scenic Trail
was on hand for the workshop.

citizens know our sheriff and
his staff are doing their job. It
doesn't say you are guilty or not

better and safer, especially for

Dear Miss Molly:
I feel compelled to respond to
last week's letter from the Kinard
man who said his wife left and took
his dog, Skipper, and all the furni-
ture. I am his wife.
I noticed that he left a lot of
information out of his letter so let
me fill you in on the real deal.
First of all, I did NOT run off with
his best friend. He just helped me
move out of that shack my soon-to-
be ex-husband calls a home. I am
tired of working all day, then coming
home to find his smelly feet
propped up on the' sofa. Had he
been sweating from a hard day's
work, I could handle the stink, but
that has never been the case.
Secondly, As for the furniture, I'll
be happy to relinquish all my rights
to the end tables he burned when
he repeatedly left cigarettes burning
on them, along with his recliner that
also has fabric burns, plus his
Finally, I cenainly did take the
dog. I am the one that feeds the
dog, takes him to the vet, and
keeps him groomed. He's.my dog.
So sue me, buddy.

V We Have Problems
Because of Sin
Text: Hebrews 12:5-11
SLeadership tells a story about a man
in Haiti who was selling his house for
$2,000. A poor man wanted to buy it, but
did not have all of the money.
Aher much negotiation., mne owner.-'
agreed to sell the house for $1,000. The
only condition was that he be allowed to
keep one nail driven halfway into the wall
just over the door.
One day Ine previous owner returned
to buy the house back. The poor man
refused. The previous owner went away
and returned with a dead dog.-He hung it
on the nail he owned. Soon the rotting
carcass was giving off an unbearable7-
stench. The poor man was forced to sell
the house to the previous owner.
The moral of the story: "II we leave
mte devil with even one small peg in our
life, ne will return to hang his rotting
garbage on it, making It unfit for Christ's
h Sin has consequences. Sin is a cap-
tive that binds and destroys. Yet many
believe that God is a cosmic spoilsport
who wants us to live a harsh, dull. boring.
' God is not trying to kill your joy giving
you the scriptures to obey. In lact, it is
just the opposite. God knows that sin is
devastating. The way of sin leads to
death and eternal torment. God doesn't
want that.. .
;, God wants you to nave complete joy.
-e allows consequences of sin to dis-
courage you from making choices that
14ad to eternal destruction.
: Yourproblems could be from making
wrong choices. Ask the Holy Spirit to
examine your heart If you are sincere.
He will bring guilt over any sin. Then you
can confess it, repent of it, and receive
Christ's forgiveness. Only then will your
jdy be complete. ,

Thursday night. "It was
absolutely necessary for
Congress to include the full
funding to cover the VA's short-
fall so that our veterans can
receive the level of care consis-
tent with their honorable service
to our country. We cannot short-
change our nation's heroes."
S In June, Secretary of Veterans
-Affairs Jim Nicholson acknowl-
edged that the Department of
Veterans Affairs was short $ 1 bil-
lion for covering veterans'
healthcare needs in 2005.
The VA funding problem also
continues into next year as the
Administration claims the addi-
tional resources necessary to
provide timely, high quality care
to veterans 'in 2006 amount to
approximately $1.5 billion.
"Our troops have served our
nation -with honor, and distinc-
tion, keeping out.country free,
safe, and, strong," Boyd stated.
"Our government has a moral
obligation to the men and women
who served in our nation's
armed forces, -and as a combat
veteran, I consider these proibis-
es made to our veterans a sacred
obligation that must be upheld."

Don't underestimate the
value of your lawn trees
The County Record, AUGUST 3, 2005, Page 11
Century Club asking for
continued local support
How much are your trees
worth? Most likely more than you
think.- Homeowners invest a lot of
time, care, and money into land-
scaping their property, expecting
beauty and shade in return. But
the unexpected "return" on that
investment is that trees have
monetary value as well.
When you stop to consider
that landscaping can be worth up
to 20 percent of your home's total
property value, you'll understand
why it's worthwhile to protect the
investment you've made in your
greenery. According to the
International Society of
Arboriculture (ISA), a tree's value
is based on four factors: tree size,
tree' type, tree' condition, and
overall tree location based on its
functionaland aesthetic purpos-
es. A professional tree arid land-
scape appraiser can determine
where .your. trees or plants, fall
under these categories.
While it's impossible to prevent
storms, accidents, and air pollu-
tion from causing damage to your
trees and plants. it is possible to
recapture your landscape losses
through an insurance claim, or
as a deduction from federal
income taxes, advises ISA.:
If your trees and landscape are
damaged, ISA recommends that
V Contact your.homeowner's
/ Have the insurance compa-
ny send a professional tree:and
landscaping appraiser out to your
property immediateTv after the
damage has occurred.
V Have the .appraiser deter-
mine your financial loss, includ-
ing the cost. of removal and
V Contact a local ISA Certified
Arborist if repair or replacement
Just as. you would with anv.
other valuable asset, document
your investment in landscaping
to. help. establish its worth. ISA
suggests taking pictures of trees
and plants while they are healthy
to make insurance processing
simpler with 'before and after'

Traffic stop ends
in DUI, underage
Two men were arrested on DUI and
underage drinking charges Friday night
during a routine trarlic slop.
Arrested were Nicholas Allen Girardot.
21, and Thomas Jared Foster, 20.
Adcording to the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office, Dep. Bliss Moreau pulled
Girardot's vehicle over in the Piggly
Wiggly parking lot on West Central
Avenue after noticing it had two busted
tail lights As he was making the stop, he
noticed the passenger, later identified as
Foster, placing what appeared to be a bol-
tle under the seat.
While talking with the men. Dep.
Moreau detected a strong odor or alcohol
and Girardot, whose speech was slurred,
reponedly admitted he had consumed
approximately a six pack oi beer After
failing a field sobriety test, GirardoI was
charged with driving under the influence
As he was being placed in the patrol
vehicle, Girardot reportedly admitted the
by Paul F.. Joytier Ph.D
A widely acclaimed surgeon told a
television interviewer Ihe story of his suc-
cess. "Aher many years of schooling I
realized that I could settle down and be a
reasonably good practitioners of my spe-
cialty. Then, I became obsessed with a
desire to make a major breakthrough for
the sake of my patients. I read every-
thing I could find in my area. I talked with
the leading men. I visited the places
where experiments were being done. I
asked questions about why surgeries suc-
ceeded and failed I drove myself to per-
fect my personal skill in the operating
room. Growing into the best surgeon pos-
sible became my consuming goal." he
Growth is demanding. Whether we
want to grow professionally, educationally.
or spiritually, there is a price to be paid
The Apostle Paul wrote his second letter
to Timothy a shown time before he was
executed for the crime of being a
Christian. The letter was written to
encourage Ihe growth of the young minis-
ter. The aged apostle used his own
example as an encouragement to
Timothy he also issued a strong chal-
lenge for the young man to discipline him-
self in every way for the purpose of
becoming spiritually mature and effective
Growth frequently demands overcom-
ing our fears.' Timothy apparently was
timid. Paul explained to him that God did
not intend for this trait to keep us from His
service. For this reason, God equips us
with power, love and self control. Facing
dangers becomes much.easier when we
know that we have the inner resources to
keep us trom fleeing in the face of danger
In the book "The Red Badge of
Course." by Stephen Crane, a young sol-
dier lived in fear that when his time in bat-
tie came, he would be a coward. In the
end he found an inner strength he did not
know he possessed.
Our own growth should not be our only
concern Paul also told Timoiny that he
had a responsibility to teach other people
all that he had learned about Christ. Once
they had been taught. then Ihey were to
be instructed to pass their own lessons on
God intends that every Christian grow.
He challenges each of us to become spir-
itually mature and able to face the prob-
lems of daily living with grace

BOYD INTRODUCES EMINENT DOMAIN LEGISLATION: Congressmen
Allen Boyd (D-FL) joined Congressmon Henry Bonillo (R-TX) lost
Wednesday in introducing bipartisan legislation that will penalize emi-
n ent donioin oa~uses.This legislation comes in response to 'a'June 2005
.U.S. Supreme Court ruling allowing governments t6o use eminent
domain to take away private property and transfer it to someone else
'for their pri.,Fate gain. Th'e Strengtrening the Ownership of Private
Property (STOPP) Act (HR 405 will prevent governments from ftking
property from one priotfe party and giving it to another private party.
The recent Supreme Court decision obscures tre concepts of emi-
nent domoan anrd private property rights.' said Congressmon Bovd
Governments should not have thne ability to take awcay o person's
home. business or land to, benefit other individuals. The STOPP Act is a
comprehensive piece of legislator that will correct the for-reaching
decision made by the Supreme Court and protect the overoge citizen
in pursuit ct' the 4"rericonr Dream When eminent cromailn buses
occur the STOPP Act will pre.'ent localities arnd states from receli'.ng
fecerol ec.norrnc cisi.lstanre or ot ecor'no:mc development projects
not just those upon which buses occur. Furthermore, this legislation
,.'ill make e state ond locil go.ernmenr t subt:'jet to the LUniform

The Blountstown Century.
Clib has beet'working hard this
summer. There are many new
changes that you will notice as
you enter Bowles Field this year.
Everyone has been working hard
the off season to complete them.
I'm sure you have seen the hustle
and bustle as you drove by. We
think that you.-will agree with us.
that our field is second to none!
With these improvements we
think none will even compare!
Without your support. some of
these changes would d not even
have come about.
We have been renovating and
rearranging the parking lot also.
In order for us to be prepared for
all the parking needs of our merm-
belr \\'e ask that you please pay
your membership dues by
Friday, August 12, 2005. This
is also the date of the "TIGER
PRIDE CELEBRATION" commu-
nity pep rally. The pep rally \Nill
be at 7:00 p.m. in the BHS audi-
torium Everyone is welcomed
and invited. \ou may renew your
membership at that time. In the
event that your membership dues
are not paid by that date. 'your
parking space \\ill be assigned to
someone else. Allowing promi-
nent parking to go unassigned
after the season starts is ery
unfair to the members who have
already, paid. After August 12,
2005 parking spaces will- be
assigned on a first come; firsi
serve basis. We hope to see eacd~
of you in the stands on August
19,; for the Kick-Off Classi'
against Bristol at 7-30 p.m Tha
is surely a game you don't wan(
to miss! Come out and support?
the "FIGHTING TIGERSS"
We .are looking forward, to a.
new season with a new schedule
in a new class! Thanks for your
support.... and ... GO TIGERS!

Bronson has announced that
nominations are being accepted
for the 2005 "Woman of the Year
in Agriculture" award.
The award, now in its 21st
year, recognizes women who have
made outstanding contributions
to Florida agriculture.
"This award spotlights the vital
role of women in Florida agricul-
ture and serves to encourage
other women to get involved in
the business," Bronson said.
"Many women have made signifi-
cant contributions over the years
in developing and sustaining this
industry, which has an economic
impact estimated at more than
$62 billion annually."
Those nominated for the award
will be judged by a panel familiar
with Florida agriculture. The
award will be presented in
February at the opening-day lun-
cheon of the 2006 Florida State
Fair in Tampa.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services, which sponsors the
event, has sent nomination forms
to agricultural organizations
around the state. The deadline
for submitting nominations to the
Department is November 1, 2005.
Nominations remain active for
two years; after that time they
must be resubmitted in order to

The value of agricultural land
continued to increase in all areas
of the state last year, buoyed by a
population boom and strong
nonagricultural demand for land,
according to a new University of
"Following recent trends, the
market for agricultural land was
Very active this past year, and the
rate of increase in land values
was particularly high in the
southern regions of the state,"
said John Reynolds. a professor

"In most land-xalue categories,

SReynolds' 2004 land \alue stir-
vey, which measures changes
over the' past, year; divides the
state into five regions: south,
souLtheast. central, northeast and

urbanization has on agricultural
.land values, Reynolds collects
data for the southeast region,
including Miami-Dade, Broward
and Palm Beach counties.
He also measures,the value of

Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun
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
*Haggling for the best price
SHaving to come up with $2000 to $3000
for a down payment, taxes, title and tag
*Paying someone a $5000 $6000 profit
on a $10,000 automobile.
Here's what we've done at Direct Automo-
*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 any
of our vehicles. We can even help with your
taxes and tag most of the time.
Ashlyn and Carlee Barfield enjoy sold ice cold sno cones while
waiting in line at the Family Affair.
*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. .
If you don't see the car of your dreams in
this ad, call us. We'll set you pre-approved,
tell you what it will cost and buy it for you.,
We appreciate you're supporting us. Come
by or call.
We sell all of our cars at
a discount so you don't
need a down payment!
