BY KELLI PEACOCK
As the Blountstown City
Council set out to draft a new
animal control ordinance recent-
ly, City Attorney David House
made an unexpected discovery:
there are already animal regula-
tions in place.
Believed to have been passed
decades ago. long before any of
the current Council members
were on board. the ordinance
addresses issues such as keep-
ing cattle. mules, and swine out
of city streets and parks.
However, there are also areas
governing household pets. A
condensed version of the rules
are as follows:
Female dogs in heat, along
with vicious dogs. are not
allowed to run at large and will
be impounded in the city animal
shelter if. they do so.
Excessive barking. biting or
howling is considered a nui-
sance. Any five citizens of the
city. not related by blood or mar-
riage, can make written com-
plaint to the police calling for a

BY KELLI PEACOCK
Blountstown's own Virginia
"Ginny" Bailey Howard is fea-
tured in the September issue of
Southern Living. The magazine
has a spread about her unique
seashell creations in the
Florida Living section.
A 1964 graduate of
Blountstown High School,
Howard used to spend her days
crunching numbers as an
accountant in Bay County.
Back in 1998. she decided to
pack up her calculator and sell
her accounting business. But
she knew she wanted to find
something to do. A stroll by the
ocean soon provided the per-
"I have a house at Port St.
Joe Beach and I was walking
on the beach picking up
shells," she recalls. "I had
oodles of shells and I started
experimenting with them."
Before long. her experiments
turned into works of art as she
created mirrors, tables, chan-
deliers, candlelabras, and a
variety of other items.
As her supply grew, she
started taking part in arts and
crafts shows and eventually
met Peggy Poteet, owner of The
Studio Gallery in Grayton
Beach. Poteet invited Howard
to sell her wares at her gallery.
The shell art was an instant
hit, providing decor for numer-
ous beach houses in Grayton,
along with nearby Seaside and
With so many customers on
the coast, one of the most pop-
ular items in Howard's collec-
tion is her hurricane cross.
"You're supposed to put it on
your home and it's supposed to
protect your house from the
hurricanes." she explains.
Although Southern Living
hadn't hit the newsstand as of
Monday morning, subscribers
to the magazine had gotten it in
the mail over the weekend.
Immediately. The Studio
Gallery began getting calls
about Howard's work.
"One man wanted to buy a
coral wreath shown in the arti-
cle, but it's already sold."
Howard remarks, taking a
mental note to make another
one like it.
The daughter of the late
Lewis and Louise Bailey .of
Blountstown, Howard ventured
back to her family home in
recent years and plans to stay.
Still, she and her husband,
Jim, enjoy scavenging for
shells together on area beach-
es. "Jim sorts and cleans," says
Ginny. adding that he also cuts
the wood for her designs. "'
couldn't do it without him."
A room in her family home
has become her studio, lined
with bins of shells in all shapes
and sizes. Most come from area
beaches, the rest from a store
in Fort Lauderdale.
Being a crafter seems to
come natural for Howard. "I've
always sewed," she remarks. "I
love to sew and I did t-shits
during the decorating fad. In
high school. I was the assistant
art editor for our yearbook."
Although her shell art has
turned into a lucrative busi-
ness. even financing trips to
Rome and other favorite travel
destinations. Ginny says, "I'm
having fun I'm not having to
Prices for Howard's pieces
depend on size and range any-
where from $200 to S300 for
smaller items, and S750 to
8800 for larger ones.
The Studio Gallery is located
at 26D Logan Lane in Grayton
Beach (ph. 850/231-3331).
Her work can also be found

uled blood drives cancel due to
Hurricane Katrina. Therefore, the
blood donations SCBC expected are
not available and we are looking for
others to come forward and give blood
in place of these cancelled drives,"
said Roxy Ballard, SCBC's, Marianna
Branch blood drive coordinator.
Last year, thanks to local volunteer
blood donors, SCBC was ready and
able to assist Florida blood centers in
Orlando. After Hurricane Charley hit,
SCBC sent30 units ofblood when the
centers asked for help.
SCBC is issuing an appeal for
blood donors. On a good weather day,
donated blood takes 24-48 hours to
process and release to a patient A
storm like Hurricane Katrina can
delay the transportation and process-
ing of blood donations. Therefore, the
blood donations already on the shelf
are ready to go. Individuals who wish
to donate should be at least 17 years
old and weigh 110 pounds or more.

The County Record, AUGUST 31,2005, Page 7
over St. Joe,
The Blountstown Tigers
played just well enough to win
Friday night against longtime
rival Port St. Joe. The 25-14 win
wasn't pretty, but it may have
been an important win just the
The Tigers made several costly
turnovers, dropped passes, wast-
ed timeouts, played as if they
were in slow motion at times and
didn't appear0to be very focused.
So, how did,they win? Sheer
speed and talent, that's how!
Two key ingredients for any high
school program to succeed. Port
St. Joe had a very good football
team and with a break here and
there, could have easily won the
game. The Tigers can't beat
North Florida Christian, Vernon,
Leon,, Chipley, Holmes County
and Tampa Whoever playing like
they did Friday night. But, they
won Friday night and will learn
from their mistakes.
Blountstown lost two fumbles
early in the first quarter, one on
their third offensive play and
another on their fourth offensive
play. St. Joe took advantage of
the second fumble and scored on
a 17 yard pass play with 9:03 left
in the first quarter.
A personal foul penalty
against the Tigers nullified a
beautiful 41 yard pass from
Michael Guilford to Ryan Baker
later in the first period. Following
a 11 yard run by Corey Silcox,
Baker scored from the 13. The 2-
point effort was stuffed by the
Chance Attaway came up with
a fumble recovery, but the Tiger
offense sputtered at the Shark
35. Titus Overholt came up with
an interception to pu the Tigers
back in business at the Shark
37. Two plays later, Arsenio
Ivory found a hole in the defense
and raced the distance for a
touchdown. The Tigers elected to
go for two again with the same
result. They did take the lead,
however, 12-7 with.8:41 left in
the second quarter.
Attaway jumped on another
Shark fumble setting up the
offense at the St. Joe 22. After
an 11 yard run by Guilford kept
the drive alive, Attaway followed
good blocking in from 6 yards out
for the score. Jacob Williams
kicked the point after and the
Tigers seemed in control, 19-7
which held to intermission.
St. Joe took the third quarter
kickoff and put together an
impressive drive ending \ith a 7
yard touchdown pass to a recei--
er covered by three Tigers. The
PAT kick cut the Tigers' lead to
A good defensive stand by the
Tigers forced St. Joe to punt
from deep in their own territory
early in the fourth quarter. The
Tigers took over at the Shark 39.
After a 13 yard run by Attaway.
Guilford broke some tackles ind
galloped to the endzone \\ith 8:03
left in the game. A two-point
pass attempt failed, but the win-

added 44 on 8 rushes followed by

all did a good job of blocking
against the Sharks Friday night.

from the coaches while Phillips
graded out at 92%.
Defensively for the Tigers,
Corey Silcox was the leader, in on
17 tackles, Attaway was in on 16

This Friday .night the .Tigers
will travel to Greensboro to face
another new name on the sched-
ule, West Gadsden (formerly

They have good size and excellent
speed and the Tigers will need to
take control of the game early.

ITS FOOTBALL TIME AGAIN"""' I apol-
ogize to everyone for missing my coaches cor-
ner lasr week after the Bnstol game, but I will
take care of it this week
It' was very unusual for us to have io play
our biggest two nvals unrng te first two weeks
of the season but thal was the way the sched-
S ule worked out for us this year. Liberty County
came in last week and played very hard for four
quarters and Por SL Joe had a very fine foot-
S ball team that almost beat us this week.
S Last week against Lberty County, we
played a solid game from stan to finish Not a
very emotional game, but we executed well I
think we had preached to our kids sonmuch
about playing clean and not getting into any
trouble. that our kids just played on ability and
not emotion I thought is was a very clean game
'rom both sides and we were fortunate to come
out with a win. Many of our kids got significant
playing time and it was a great e>penence for
them which will help us down the road. As
S always, it was a very physical game and we.
I luckily did not get anyone hurt.
S I want to commend Bristol for their effort;
and their physical play Their kids iook it to us.
and played very hard all night I also want to
Scommend our kids for their focus and physical
play. We were able to control the line ol scnm-
mage and allow our speed players to, make a
lot of great plays throughout the night.
SI also want to take a moment to commend
both our plans and Lberty Countys fans It was
great to see so many loyal supporters at the:
game cheering on their leams tH'means so
much to Our kids to see that many people In the
stands every week. Our fans were tremren-
dous last season and I challenge themto sup-
port us the same way this season. We want a
playoff atmosphere every week I hope our
kids will begin to play more emotional and I
challenge me fans to do the same.:' -
Then came the Port St Joe Sharks. Well,
that game was anytnhng but clean. We played'
very sloppy and unfocused. We also played
very unmotivated When we went back and
graded the film over the weekend, we did not
look nearly as bad as far as actual blocking and
tackling as we thought we did We actually had
three offense linemen that graded out in the
900% range But we just looked unorganized
and sloppy We had three busted coverages
on defense that gave them two touchdowns
anrd we fumbled ine football and dropped pass-
es on offense that would have blown the game
One thing I will say about the game is we
hit them harder than we have ha anyone since
I have been at BHS. There were about 6 of the
best hits you could ever want to see I know we
were called for a late hit out of bounds in the
third quarter of the game, but the film shows
that it was completely In bounds I don want to

ored at the 38th Annual Governor's
Conference on Tourism in Hollywood,
Presented by VISIT FLORIDA and
the Florida Commission on Tourism,
DEP was presented Flagler Awards
for the 2004 Florida Folk Festival and
the'lving Waters: Aquatic Preserves of
Florida documentary and photograph
exhibit. The Department was -also a
finalist in another category for the
Florida State Parks Month poster.
"Through the Department's corn-
mitment to protecting and preserving
Florida's environment, our visitors
have many opportunities to visit....the
Real Florida," said DEP. Secretary
Colleen M. Castille. "Through our
state parks and trails, aquatic pre-
serves and other recreational oppor-
tunities, we entertain and educate
millions of visitors annually."
DEP was honored with a Flagler'
Award in the "special events" category
for the 2004 Florida Folk Festival.
Held annually at Stephen Foster Folk
Culture Center State Park, the
Festival celebrates the cultural tradi-
tions of all Floridians, from Seminoles
and cowboys to the newest residents
from around the globe. In 2004, folk
music singer Arlo Guthrie headlined
the festival for more than 17,800
guests, raising $146,000.
In addition, DEP was presented
another Flagler Award for the Living
Waters: Aqrpdic Preserves of Florida
documentary, which was honored in
the "resource/promotional material-
consumer electronic" category.
Previously, the documentary, pro-
duced and directed by Elam Stoltzfus

Blountstown, has aired statewide on
public television, and received the
Crystal Reel award for' "Best
Cinematography, 2005" from the
Florida Motion Picture and Television
Association and a national 'Telly

lence in tourism marketing, advertis-
ing and promotion by the state's
tourism industry. Initiated in 2000,
winners in fifteen categories are cho-
sen by an independent panel of mar-
keting professionals and announced
at the annual Governor's Conference
on Tourism. The conference, hosted
annually by VISIT FLORIDA, brings
together key members of Florida's
tourism sector to discuss the latest
industry trends, conditions and busi-
ness practices. This year's theme,
"Beyond the Blue Horizon," focused
on forward thinking trends and chal-
lenges facing the tourism industry.

Hugo was a powerful storm and
a'big stori, but'it wasn't as' big
as this one," he points out.
As for lessons panhandle resi-
dents can learn from this disas-
ter. O'Brian says heed the warn-
ings. "Nobody can escape this,"
he emphasizes. "You can have all
the .\\onderflul plans you, want,
but people not willing to evacu-
ate...they're' taking their' lives
into their own hands."
Here in Calhoun County,
O'B-ran says there'isn't a shelter
strong enough t.o withstand
wirids from a storm as powerful
as Katrina. "We don't have any-'
thing suitable for people to go
'to," he remarks.
O'Bryan fears that many peo-
pie will soon forget hfow deadly
hurricanes., and the tornadoes
they can produce really are and
will fail-to heed warnings in the
future. "Our support personnel
and department heads take \what
we do seriously. however. I'm not
sure the general public does. I do
think Ivan was an eye opener for
us on tornadoes," he states.:
But \ith all the planning and.
preparing and training his office
does, when it all comes down to
it, O'Bryan knows we can only be
so ready.when disaster strikes.
"It scares me," he admits. "We
have come so far and still there
are so many external variables
we can't control."

It is growing every year the
turnout that is, for the Scallop

ment, kid's activities and of course,
the major attraction the succulent
scallop! Festival goers can purchase
:scallops fried to perfection by the local
Lion's Club members and frozen in 5
Ib. bags. "Vendor, applications were
sent with Independence on the Coast
applications in July so we have an
impressive number signed up
already," said Sandra Chafin,
Executive Director, Gulf County
Chamber of Commerce..
Joe Dilorenzo and Boyd Pickett,
Chairmen "In-Charge" of cooking the
scallops this year are excited at the
number of Lions already committed
to cooking. Extra scallops were
ordered this year to accommodate the
crowds and-French fries have been
eliminated from the menu due to their
slowing down the cooking process.
"The Lions are ready to cook! They
had a super time last year and know
this year will be even better", reports
