Calhoun Count's real estate
market is skyrocketing, reaching
heights never seen in this conmmuni-
"'The trends, basically, are even
week we get deeds with higher
prices." says Terry Stone. Calhoun
County's Property Appraiser. who is
amazed at the local market. "All
property and houses have increased
25 to 30 percent since last year. in
some cases land is twice as high as
it was last \ear. We have property on
the river going up 50 to 100 percent."
Real estate is a hot topic across
the country and Florida is among the
top markets. Will the trend end? "\We
don't see it stopping at this point-
savs Stone. "But most people com-
ment to us that we're cheaper than
most places in the state still. It's been
pretty remarkable."
Browsing on the Calhotu Cotnty,
Property Appraiser website. it's easy
to see what Stone is talking about.
One neighborhood that presents a
good example of how home valuess

are escalating is Live Oak Heights oil
Roy Colden Road in Blountstown.
For instance. a home that was pur-
chased for S132,500 in 2001 sold
this year for 8215,000. Another
house in the same neighborhood

RecorL noting that there are proba-
bly 10 homes under construction

Dear Editor,
Greetings! I wanted to take
this opportunity while I was here
to send out my appreciation to
some of the locals. As a
Blountstown native in the US
Navy, I was recently stationed in
New Orleans this past February.
I was away oh training in San
Diego, California, when I learned
that this massive storm was
headed towards my new home.
By the time I arrived at the air-
port on Saturday afternoon, me
and a fellow sailor had no choice
but to get in my girlfriend's car
and leave the city, as the exits
had already been closed off for
We made the decision to come
to my parents' place here in
Blountstown. My girlfriend, a
native of New Orleans, and my
buddy had never been to
Blountstown, needless to say.
After spending a week here,
we leave today, Sunday the 4th,.
almost a week after leaving
everything we had behind and
having everything destroyed. But
even after seeing all the devasta-
tion and chaos on the news and
knowing we have nothing at all,
our spirits have been rather high.
I think this is, in part, thanks to
the friendliness and helpfulness
of some of the people here. Like I
said, I grew up here, so I do know
a few people and they kept a
smile on our faces.
When we went'to Roundman's
bar, some looked at., us as.
strangers, but once they earned
that we had escaped the storm.1 t
was like they had known us for
years. I can say that my girlfriend
and my buddy'felt "at home".
Although this experience .has
been tragic for us, none of the
three of us will forget this past
week spent here in Blountstown.
Thanks to the Johnsons, Shirley,
Harveys, Carlton and Tami,
everyone at Roundman's .(you
guys rock!) and especially my
parents for providing us with
food, shelter and. lots of laIughs
(LUNCH). So its with a heavy
heart we depart for my new (tem-
porary) duty station outside of
Atlanta, GA.
Thanks again,
Ryan Cochran

Dear Editor,
I just wanted to take a minute'
and thank some people here in
Blountstonfi: We h'd "'an older
couple thit had to evaIcuate from
New Orleans; unfortunately, they
forgot to bring their medications.
I was contacted about the sit-
uation: Monda\ night, and on
Tuesday morning I was once
again renunded of the benefit of
living, in a small and supportive
community like Calhoun County
as w\e tried to help this couple.
It is very hard for someone
from out of state.to get this type
of help, who do you call. what do
you do. I am proud of our hospi-
tal, and its director. Ben
Burnham. The hospital reacted
immediately to the situation. 1
would also like to thank Dr

Dear Editor,
This week, I watch with tear
filled eyes, the multitudes of
homeless, fearful, heartbroken
civilians in Louisiana on TV. We
can see despair in their faces,
hear the anguish in their voices
as reporters interview victim
after victim. The images stir a
vivid memory for me. I was in the
same situation just a year ago
this very month. It was
Hurricane Ivan.
In the same way those persons
on TV were affected, my home
,was damaged, my fears escalat-
ed, hope eluded me, and, never
before had I felt such deep uncer-
Last September when Ivan
struck Blountstown I was rela-
tively new to the area.
Consequently, I had no local
family members to turn to for
refuge; and most everyone I knew
were merely distant acquain-
tances preoccupied with prob-
lems of their own. The bureau-
cratic red-tape, albeit well-
intended. availed no consolation
or practical relief. It was an
inescapable and seemingly
impossible situation as I've ever
Then, two days after the hurri-
cane hit, a, team of workers
arrived at my home unexpectedly
and unannounced. I had no idea
who they were or where they
were from, but I'll never forget
that day for as long as I live. It
was like a heavenly vision as they
arrived in convoy with equipment
and truck loads of able-bodied
helpers. Instantly, hope "was
restored, and I thanked God..
Together. willingly and effective-
ly, they did more in one day than
I could have done in a year.
These men were an answer to
prayer. They restored my home
and exemplified the definition of
goodwill, compassion,. mercy,
and unselfish service. These
Attributes are not unlike those of
Jesus '- who also gave Himself
w\holeheartedly. without pay.
Editor, in the aftermath of
.Katrina and on this one-year
anniversary of Hurricane Ivan, I
publicly acknowledge and thank
these men. sincerely from my
)heart. al'obftihori '.are my' real-
life heroes I don't know their
names, but I do know that,;God
does, and He has each of those
names written in His book.
And, lastly, dear. editor, to
those of us who are concerned
for our neighbors in Louisiana.
let me encourage local readers to
become irivolved in volunteer
relief aide in whatever way they
can. Speaking from experience,
the same w\ayt these men blessed
my circumstances last year with
restoration (measurable and
unmeasutrable). we too will bless
lives of our neighboring fellow
Americans by reaching out to
It's not about money, prestige,
denomination, media coverage,
fame, or fortune. It's about sacri-
fice. compassion, and hope. Let's
help them because -we can.
because wxe are nearby. and we

Furthermore. lest we forget.
but for the grace of God, it could
'have been us. The "pay-oft" will
be in our heart, their lives, eter-

We'll Need Your Help
By Mary Landrieu

The devastation left by
Hurricane Katrina is unprece-
dented and nearly impossible to
describe. Stabilizing, repairing
and rebuilding New Orleans,
southeast Louisiana and the Gulf
Coast region is hot only a para-
mount concern for the thou-
sands left heartbroken and
homeless; it is also the largest
economic challenge our country
has ever faced from a natural
SWith- the impact of Katrina's
devastation being felt in some
way in every community across
the nation, our! long-term recov-
ery from this tragedy will require
leadership, courage, patience
and the prayers of all Americans.
The administration and Congress
must be committed to providing
the resources necessary' to
rebuild the Gulf :Coast and
strengthen it fir the future.
But while disasters Like this
.one strike quickly, recovery! is
long and painful. In these first
days, we are staying hopeful and
confident while our immediate
pnority remains rescuing sur-
\ivor- and assisting the thou-
sands of people that Katrida left
homeless and jobless. Having
toured Sri Lanka with Senate
LMajority Leader Bill Frist' after
the Indian Ocean tsunaini in
December, it saddens m' e to
report that the devastation I've
seen here at home is equal to.
that which I, witnessed half a
world away.
Our nation came to the aid of
the tsunami victims then, and to.
hurricane victims in Central'
America before. I am deeply
moved to see us come together
with the same love and fellow-
ship :today,, as millions of
Americans hdve rallied to sup-
port their brothers and sisters on
the Gulf Coast.
I thank all Americans for their
prayers and support in this diffi-
cult time and encourage 'those
who can donate to the relief effort
to do so. The American Red,
Cross is coordinating the out-'

Calhoun County Girl Scout
Troop 579 has had a busy sum-
mer. From learning about the sea
at day camp, splashing the day
away at Shipwreck Island, per-
forming a space mission at the
Challenger Learning Center in
Tallahassee, to learning how to
make cool things at the Lowes
Build and Grow programs, and
swashbuckling with the pirates
on the Sea Dragon pirate ship on
.Panama City Beach (not to men-
tion trips to the mall, library and
movies), there have been a lot of
adventure for these girls.
But Girl Scouts aren't all
about fun and games. Girls par-
ticipated, in the Relay for Life,
Family Affair, have collected
almost 200 books for the

Panthers; 41-6

The Blountstown Tigers
improved to 2-0 with an impres-
sive '41-7 victory over West
Gadsden Friday night. .in
GreenPboro. The Panthers
tossed in the towel and asked for
a runinng, clock in the fourth
quarter even though the Tigers
had their reserves on the field.
West Gadsden had some good

athletes with outstanding speed,
but the Tigers kept them in
check for most of the game. The
Panther's lone score came with
five minutes left on the clock.
The Tigers will now have to
step it up a notch with North
Florida Christian coming to
Bowles Field Friday night. 'It will
be a completely different level of

competition for the Tigers. There
will be no room for mistakes
against a team blessed with out-
standing personnel. NFC has an
outstanding passing attack, one
of the best running backs in the
state, and a strong defense.
Many fill the Tigers have been
looking ahead to North Florida
Christian, Vernon, Leon and
Tampa Berkley Prep. and have
not played up to their potential
against Liberty County, Port St.
Joe or West Gadsden. The Tigers.
will need to bring their "A"
game and be fired up when they
hit the field against NFC Friday
After a long pass completion
from Michael Guilford to Titus
Overholt, Chance. Attaway
opened the Tigers' scoring with a
blast from the 5 with only 1:40
off the clock. Jacob Williams hit
his first of five extra point kicks
and the Tigers were on top. 7-0.

Bowles Field Friday night and
Tiger fans will need to come in
force and with plenty of spirit to
help lead the Tigers to \ictory
Kickoff is at 7:30 so plan to
arrive early to get a seat.

Well. it wasn't a very exciting win. bul
a win lust the same. I heard Bobby-
Bowden say aher the FSU Miami game
that he would fake an ugly win over a
pretty loss any day. I would not say that
our win was ugly. bul unexciting, yes'
We must continue to improve on
offense and play beer pass coverage if
we are going to win the next three games
on our schedule. West Gadsden came
South of the locker room with some of the
best looking athletes you ever could want
to see, but they were not nearly as phys-
ical as our kids were. we outhit them. as
we have everyone we have played so lar,
and were able to pul them away by half-
We did have some ugly plays on our
second drive ol the night when we were
in the shotgun, but here were good rea-
Ssons for'what look place. We have been
Working on our shotgun package all sea- .
Sson and! it will be a work-in-progress
t throughout the year. Hopefully we will
Address our problems as they arise and
have lhat package ready down the road il I
we neeV. it. You have to give west
SGadsde credit, they kept playing hard
and ruined our shutout near the end ol
t Ihe garhie.
As for our play, we must improve on
Offense. We should be a much better
offensive team than last season, but we
. ,

are not driving people off the football. We
are blocking the right people, but we are
not dominating the line ot scrimmage.
We will have to be more physical up Iront
the next three weeks i we are going to
win these games. We are not playing
bad by any means, we just need to be a
little more dominant. We also need to
continue to improve our short passing
game If people are going to blitz every-
body, we must make them pay for it by
Throwing the ball in the vacated areas.
We did that some last week and we need
to continue to do so in the future.,
We also need to get the football to our
outstanding running backs more. With
Chance Attaway, Arsenio Ivory, Corey
Silcox, and T.C. Copeland n the back-
lield, we need them to have more carries.
II has been hard so tar because we have
not needed them as much yet. but we will
Ine next three weeks.
We also have a great quarterback in
Michael Guilford that we need to get
more involved as well as Ryan Baker and
Greg vleeks at running back. We are
several good players deep at receiver
with John Lockhart and Titus Overholt
leading the way. They need more touch-
es as well. The problem is it we run 50
plays on offense with this many good

We Have Problems Because
We Live In a Wicked World
Text: Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43
A man runs past metal detectors gun-
ning down innocent victims. A man
breaks into a hotel room raping a woman.
A woman is driving home from the mall
and is hit by a drunken driver taking her
life. You do not rave to go far to see or
hear headlines like these almost every
single day.
Did these people deserve what hap-
pened to them? How can a loving God
allow bad things to happen to good peo-
ple? Jesus told us why in Matt. 13:24-43.
Jesus said the world is like a field
ready to plant. Jesus planted the field
with good people broadcasting the seed,
as one would plant wheat. Satan came
and planted bad people among the good
people like an enemy might plant weeds
in a wheat field.
Jesus didn't pull up the bad people
because, "while you are pulling up the
weeds. you will pull up the wheat with
them INIVI." If God destroyed all of the
unrepentant Ibad) people before the full
number of repentant (good) people came
to Christ. the harvest of repentant people
would not be as great.
Think about it. I am saved and my sins
forgiven. One of my ancestors was not.
What if God came during the time of my
ancestor and destroyed the unrepentant?
I would have never been born and would
have never become a child of God.
God allows people to go on sinning
until all of the repentant can repent. Then
God will judge and remove wickedness
from the world Until then, we may have
to suffer because of another's sin. Sin
always has consequences and it never
affects lust you. But God gives us the
grace and mercy to overcome everything
that happens to us.

ment under the radio, along with a vile
containing a crystal rock like material that

Smith was booked into the Calhoun
County Jail and was given a conditional
release the following day

players, they can only touch the
ball 4 or 5 times each. I guess
that is a good problem to have,
but it is a problem nonetheless.
Defensively, we just need to
continue to hit people like we
have been and cut down on a few
mistakes. We have played good
defense, but not dominating
defense because we continue to
have a breakdown somewhere
along the line. If we can cut out
mistakes on defense, we could
have a very good unit this sea-
son. Corey Silcox and Chance

Attaway have had a great year so
far at the two safety positions
and Jamie Willis has played very
good at linebacker. Both Chaz
Johns and Josh Savell have been
dominating on the defensive line.
If they can keep that up over the
next three weeks, we have a
chance to win all of those games.
We have a huge game this
week at home against North
Florida Christian. They have
four players who have been
offered Division 1 scholarships
so far and one player who is a

pre-season All American. We will
have to play our best game td
have a chance to win. I want tci
challenge our fans to be mores
spirited this week than they have
at any other game this year. We!
need your support and our play-4
ers really need your enthusiasni,
in the stands. We feed off you!
excitement and.we will need ai
"Home Field Advantage" this
week if we, are going to have a
chance to win. We hope to see
you at the game. GO
