ALTHA-BASED TRAINING FACIUTY



AT finds newniche in




hurricane security


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
When Advanced Training
Services (ATS) set up shop in
Altha a few months back, they
probably had no idea how their
services would soon be needed.
The facility, that offers train-
ing to a variety ofgroups
including military service mem-
bers, discovered a new niche
when Hurricane Katrina
slammed into the Gulf Coast.
With less than six hours
notice, an ATS team, led by
ATS' Director of Training, was
deployed to New Orleans. Their
original mission was to rescue


77 year old Shirley Mae
Washington and her 98 year
old mother, Barbara. In a favor-
able twist of fate; both Shirley
Mae and Barbara had been res-
cued only hours before Taylor's
ATS, team arrived, so ATS per-
sonnel moved on to other
search and rescue, duties in the
stricken city.
Former 'Navy SEAL Tom
Powell, known to many folks
since he moved to Calhoun
County with ATS, joined the
effort, along with former US
Army Special Forces soldier
Mike Lose, and former United
States Marines Corp and State
Department Diplomatic


Security Services veteran Tony
Deibler. Among the group's
success stories in the storm
impacted region was the rescue
of an eight-year-old boy who
had been burned. In addition,
the ATS team conducted an
area survey, alerting other
search and rescue personnel to
the presence of hundreds of
survivors.
After their rescue efforts, the
ATS team went searching for
other ways to be, of service.
They discovered one of the
greatest needs was security, a
task the ATS team was well
prepared to tackle. "A major
,power company from


Mississippi, Alabama,
Louisiana, and Texas contract-
ed with us to provide armed
security for their crews," Powell
tells The County Record. "We
were basically protecting them
in an unstable environment."
To do the job, the Altha
training facility came into play
as a team of 65 from all over
was put together, some who
were soldiers just a few weeks
out of Iraq. "They were
processed and certified
through Altha, put under con-
tract, clothed, equipped, and
sent with a logistics package to

FEDERAL INDICTMENT


Couple


charged


with fraud


after Ivan
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A federal grand jury has
handed down an indictment
alleging a Blountstown couple
defrauded the government out of
nearly $13,000 following
Hurricane Ivan.
According to the indictment
filed with the United States
District Court in Panama City,
Timothy W. and Deborah A,
Banks sought assistance from
FEMA (the Federal Emergency
Management Agency) on Sept.
21, 2004, six days after
Hurricane Ivan hit the Gulf
Coast. In their application for
assistance, the couple claimed
the apartment they were renting
in Blountstown was damaged in
the storm and was no longer
habitable. In addition, they also
stated their personal property
was damaged by wind-driven
rain.
Around October 2, the couple
received a housing assistance
check for $449, along with a

BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
After two terms on the
Calhoun County School Board,
Doyle Daniels has decided not to
seek re-election to his district 5
seat.
"I said in the beginning I was
not going to take it for a career,"
Daniels tells The County Record,
adding that after eight years,
"It's time to make a change and
get some new ideas. I just felt
like it was time for somebody
else to step up."
Daniels says, for the most
part, he has enjoyed his work on
the board, but points out, "It
hasn't been easy at all. I said in
the beginning I was in it to help
the kids and I've done everything

Events Investigated During the Past Week by BPD and CCSD


;Dear Editor,
'I am writing concerning our
high school football team. Our
coaches and guys have worked
extremely hard. I am very proud
of our whole football program.
The past two seasons have
-been wonderful and memorable.
The memories that you all have
given to us will never be forgotten
or can ever be taken away. It was
great to be part of them and has
been such an honor to be
involved with such a great group
of kids and coaches.
To Coach Johns, thanks for
letting Hunter be part of those
memories and always looking out
Sfor him. He will never forget
them.
As for our boys, I have never
'been disappointed in you. I think
I love ya'll now more than I ever
have. Thanks for the memories.

Sincerely,
Greta Jenks

To the Editor:
Helping Hands Thrift Store,
located at 16842 NE Pear Street,
has once again become the target
of thieves. Only this time, it
appears the thefts may be the
work of other thrift stores.
Sunday afternoon, November
20, a citizen was driving by the
store and saw a man loading a
dresser onto a handcart and
-pushing it into a nearby store.
"'While several days ago, a cus-
-tomer came into the store to
report that she had dropped
donations off at our facility over
;the weekend, only to find them
for sale at yet another local thrift
Store. When she inquired where
t-he proprietor obtained the
items, he indicated that a woman
'had delivered them to him.
We are the only NON-PROFIT
thrift store in Blountstown with
the only revenue we receive com-
iing from the sale of these dona-
tions. We, in turn, operate a food
program, emergency assistance
*program, and provide funding for
wheelchair ramps, as well as pay
GED exam fees for those who
cannot afford them. It is a
shame that people will stoop this
lbw to make a dollar.

Letter to the Editor,
Now we can't say Merry
Chiistmas? Can't show the Ten
Commandments? Can's say God
in a state office? Can't say a
prayer in school? And they don't
want the pledge, because it men-
tions "GOD"! They are even con-
sidering changing our currency,
because it has God on it. Why
aren't we upset when Halloween
comes and there are gosh awful
creatures running up and down
our street? But they want nativ-
ities taken down?
Our forefathers founded this
country on Godly principals. It
prospered and was a land of
plenty. We allow more in this
nation now that stands for
immorality than ever before. We
settle for TV producers deleting
every considered curse word, but
yet we still allow God's name to
be used in vain. They've talked
about removing religious .pro-
gramming, but the airwaves are
full of sex related shows. Our
teens are flooded with drugs, sex,
and alcohol to mega proportions.
Try flipping through the chan-
nels and think about what you
see. You would have to block out
almost every channel in order to
protect your teens from seeing
what this nation has turned to.
My all time favorite is the com-
mercial of "Girls Gone Wild".
And we wonder why our teens
are going crazy and respect no
one including the law. The car-
toon networks have violence
related and sex related shows
now. Why should we have to
continue to delete channels from
our viewing network? When is
enough, enough?
We want to blame the White
House, no matter who is in office,
for the state of our country. But
the truth is, it is every one of us
that have turned our heads,
away from God and His princi-
pals. : The families in
Blountstown are so children and
youth oriented and it is time we
take up the cause of Christ and
put God back in this nation.
Yes, our little town can make a
difference. .
As, for the and my, house, we
will continue to say Merry
ChristmasF-"t -

Drunk driver stops
in road near deputy,
caught with pills
A Blountstown man was arrested
Friday night after a deputy spotted him
stumbling out of a vehicle parked in the
roadway, then found illegal pills in his
possession.
Clifford Phillips, 25, was charged with
DUI, possession of a Schedule III narcot-
ic, and resisting or obstructingan officer
without violence.
According to the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office, Dep. Bliss Moreau was
completing another case around 10:15
p.m. when he noticed a Ford Ranger
parked in the roadway on Aultman
Avenue. The vehicle then reportedly
pulled up to Dep. Moreau's location and
almost struck a garbage can. Dep.


Moreau recognized Phillips who was
behind the wheel and watched as he
stepped out of the truck, stumbled for-
ward, and utilized the bed of the truck for
balance. Dep. Moreau approached,
smelled alcohol on Phillips, and noticed
his face was flush and his eyes were
bloodshot.
After Phillips failed a field sobriety
test, he was placed under arrest. Dep.
Moreau and Sgt. Mark Mallory did an
inventory search of Phillips' vehicle and
discovered a cellophane wrapper in the
driver's side door that contained five
Loratab pills.
While transporting Phillips to the
Calhoun County Jail, he allegedly began
pushing on the cage in the vehicle. Once
at the jail, he reportedly became belliger-
ent and resisted processing.
Phillips was given a conditional
release the following day.

Woman visiting at
CaCI ends up in jail
on marijuana charges
A woman visiting her boyfriend at
Calhoun Correctional Institution (CaCI)
ended up behind bars Thanksgiving Day.
Naomi Adele Hutcheson, 26, was
charged with introduction of contraband
into a state correctional institution and
possession of less than 20 grams of mar-
ijuana.
According to the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office, Dep. Eddie Dalton


responded to CaCI after a guard advised
he suspected a visitor might have drugs
on the premises. Upon arrival, Dep.
Dalton spoke with Capt. Paul Barber who
said Hutcheson was acting very nervous,
pacing, and kept asking when she could
go in and see her boyfriend. Upon ques-
tioning her about her nervous behavior,
she reportedly told Barber she was just
happy about seeing her boyfriend. He
then asked her if she could pass a drug
test and she allegedly responded that
she had smoked marijuana the previous
night.

BMS Tigers defeat



Hosford in opener


BY COACH BILLYJONES
$ The Blountstown Middle
* School Boys opened their season

Shurron Corker led the team
.,-with 18 points followed by Brian
-'Simmons and Spencer Faircloth
with 8 a piece. Jason Money and
Jacob Wainwright led in RB's.
The J.V. won their second
opener with a 5th quarter win,
19-7. Paul Mosley led with 10
points. Charles Buggs added 7
more.
The Varsity's second game was
not quite as good. They lost to
Port St. Joe 68-31. After being
down 14-10 at the end of the 1st
quarter our players broke under
the pressure and missed too
many shots under the goal. We
could have kept the 1st half close
but St. Joe did have us out tal-
ented. Jason Money led the team
with 9 points. Jason also led in
RB's.
Our J.V. continued their win
with a 38-37 comeback win
against the Sharks. They really
played good to come back from a
6 point deficit at the close of the
3rd quarter, 26-20. Paul Mosley
led in scoring with 19 points.
Roger Abbott and Marquel
Thomas added four more and
Chris Wolfram, Charles Buggs
and Trevor Engram added 3
each. Abbott led in RB's.
Tolar came to town on
Tuesday last week and our
Varsity dropped their second
.game in a loss of 32-21. Both
teams were equally matched and
we had the home court advan-
tage but we failed to make a lot of
key shots and appropriate


passed. Spencer Faircloth
scored 8 points followed by Brion

'The '.j-V. uppea 'thenrwins to
3-0 with a 2S-7 win, Paul Mosley
continued to lead the team with
14 points. Trevor Engram added
6 more with Charles Buggs and
Nick Martin adding 4 each.
The Varsity came bouncing
back on Thursday at their away
game in Hosford with a close 42-
38 win. After being down 2
points at the half 19-21, they had
a great 4th quarter for their win
considering having 3 key starters
fouled out. Shurron Cocker and
Brion led in scoring with 9 points
each. Faircloth and Wainwright
added 6 each and Money,
Stephan Jones and Michael
Leonard added 4 each. Jacob
Wainwright led in rebounds. The
Varsity is now 2-2 on the season
and will face Wewa at home after
the Thanksgiving break on
November 29th at 5:00.
The J.V. dipped their wins to
4-0 with a 16-2 victory over
Hosford. Charles Buggs led in
scoring with 6 points. Paul
Mosley and Trevor Engram
added 4 each. T his J.V. team
has really demonstrated some
very good talent. Roger Abbott,
Nick Martin, and Chris Wolfram
are doing very good on the
rebounding and our guards are
doing great on attacking the goal
on offensive and on their defen-
sive hustle -and transition play.
This credit goes to Paul Mosley,
Javon Mosley, Charles Buggs,
Marquel Thomas, Trevor

Lady Tigers chalk



up first season win


The BHS Tigers won the open-
er by defeating the Vernon Yellow
Jackets by a score of 42-27.
The Tigers took on 11-2 lead
in the 1st quarter and never
looked back as they defeated the
Yellow Jackets. The Tigers were
lead by Molly Fagen with 15
points and 7 rebounds, Shannie
Lockhart with 7 points and 5
steals, and Allison Jones with 6
.points.
"I was pleased with the win
but I certainly think we can play
much better ball than we did
Thursday night." says Coach
Barber. "We made a lot of mis-


takes, got lazy on defenses at
times, and missed way too many
free throws. For a first game I
was pleased, though. We prac-
ticed very good the two days prior
to the game but came gave day
we were very uptight and nerv-
ous. I hope as the season wears
on we will get over the pregame
jitters and just play ball."
Leading scorers were Molly
Fagan, 15; Shannie Lockhart, 7;
Allison Jones, 6; and Laura
Kastli, 4. Ellen Williams, Satyria
Everett, Ashley Gates, Lauren
Wood, and Samantha Dwiggins,
all with 2 points each.

season ends with 43-0 loss


Senior quarterback Michael Guilford led the Tigers with 34 rush-
ing yards and completed 4 of 12 passes for 143 yards in the loss
to Ocala Trinity Catholic.


For the nineteen senior mem-
bers of the Blountstown Tiger
football team there won't be a
trip to Miami this week for the
Class 2B State Championship.
Ocala Trinity Catholic, ranked
number one all season ahead of
the Tigers, left little doubt who
deserved to make the trip. The
Celtics handed the Tigers one the
worst beatings they've ever suf-
fered, 43-0.
For the entire first quarter and
most of the second quarter, the
Tigers appeared in control mov-
ing the ball and shutting down
the Celtics' powerful passing
game.
"Early in the game we really
felt we could beat these guys,"
coach Johns said Monday.
But, as has been the case in
many games this season, mis-
takes and penalties that the
Tigers were able to overcome
against weaker teams, began to
happen.
Arsenio Ivory burst through
the middle for a first quarter
touchdown only to see it wiped
out by a holding penalty.
The defense had the Celtics
pinned at their own one yard
only to see Celtic quarterback
John Brantley complete a 35
yard pass on third down out of
his endzone for a first down.
The Celtics' kicking game was
outstanding. Their punter punt-
ed three times for a 47 yard aver-
age. Their kicker consistently
boomed his kickoffs out of the
endzone and kicked a 47 yard
field goal with distance to spare.
With just over three minutes
left in the first half, Chance
Attaway lost the ball trying for
extra yards. The fumble was


scooped up and returned 23
yards for a Celtic touchdown.
The Tigers were stopped and
forced to punt. The Celtics put
together their only drive of the
first half marching 55 yards in 5
plays capped off by a 17 yard
scoring pass. The Celtics led
over a seemingly demoralized
Tiger squad, 14-0.
The Tigers had been penalized
for 65 yards in the first half.
"We couldn't overcome our
mistakes, but we felt like we were
still in the game. After the fum-
ble, we seemed to fall apart,"
Johns noted.
The Tigers held the Celtics to
only 30 yards on their first four
possessions, but gave up 105 on
the final two of the first half.
The 47 yard field goal in the
third quarter put the Celtics up
17-0, a deficit the Tigers were
still capable of overcoming.
The Tigers were beginning to
self-destruct when Brantley hit
his receiver with a 53 yard touch-
down. The Tigers, on first down,
turned the ball over at the Tiger
15. On first down, Rudell Small
shot through the middle of thee
Tiger defense for a touchdown.
Several Tiger defenders, and
there's absolutely no excuse for
their actions, slung their hel-
mets, jumped up and down and
mouthed off at the officials as
yellow flags rained down like
confetti. It was an ugly scene
resulting in the ejection of three
Tigers from the game.
With time running out in the
third period, Brantley completed
a 3 yard touchdown strike that
put the Celtics in total command,
37-0.
With the clock continuously


running, several of the Tiger sen-
iors and underclassmen contin-
ued to fight. A late fourth quar-
ter touchdown by the Celtics
couldn't have made the loss any
more hard to swallow.
Coach Johns was very emo-
tional after the game. "I'm
embarrassed for our school, and
for our community," he told the
players. "We showed no disci-
pline and no character in the
second half."
The Tigers suffered 16 penal-
ties for 119 yards. "We couldn't
overcome our mistakes," Johns
pointed out. Blountstown gave
up two interceptions and lost two
fumbles. Ocala TC was penalized
for 78 yards and had one pass
intercepted and lost one fumble.


Blountstown finished the
night with 89 rushing yards and
143 passing yards. Michael
Guilford completed 4 of 12 and
one interception and led 'the
Tigers with 34 yards rushing.
Ocala TC had 96 yards rushing
and 191 passing.
This team, despite the disap-
pointing way the season ended,
finished 26-2 over the last two
seasons. Coach Johns and his
staff will be faced with the chal-
lenge of finding replacements for
nine starters on offense and
seven starters on defense for next
year.
It's time now for new names
and faces to begin the work nec-
essary to carry on the tradition of
winning at BHS.

Senior 'orey Silcox broke up this long pass arrempr.


It really hurts to have to write
this Coach's Corner and admit
that the season is really over, but
I have the challenge of doing just
That. I want to use this article to
reflect on the importance of the
game we played last week against
Ocala Trinity Catholic.
i First, I want to reflect on the
= accomplishments of these young
Smen over the past three seasons.
SSince losing to Apalachicola
three years ago, in what seemed
to be a low point in my tenure at
SBHS, our football team has won
30 games and lost just three. We
have won three straight District
Championships, six playoff
games, been the Region 1 2B
Champions this season, won the
1A Rural School Championship
Last season, played for the State
Championship, and finished with
back-to-back undefeated regular
seasons for the. first time in
school history.
As I sat locked in my bedroom
this past weekend, I had plenty
of time to reflect on the mistakes
I have made asthe head coach of
This team, and there have been
j plenty of them. But I also had
time to reflect on the many amaz-
ing accomplishments that this
football team has reached since I
arrived here five years ago.
It has been amazing to see the
level of support that has grown
with the success of this program.
Many people that haven't seen
games in years began to go to the
home games and many began to
travel all over the state to watch
us play. It has been a blessing
from above that we have been
S able to enjoy a ride like no one
else has enjoyed around here for
many years.
These young men that have
Sshed blood, sweat, and tears for
this program over the last five
S years in a brutal year-round pro-
gram have nothing to be
ashamed of. They have over-
achieved and played their hearts
S out for themselves, myself, our
School, and this community. No
one was in that weightroom
sweating and killing themselves
these last five years but us. We


are the ones the most disap-
pointed about the outcome of last
Friday night's game. At any
point that anyone thinks about
how upset they are about what
took place in Ocala last Friday
night, multiply that by a million
and you will understand how
upset myself and my team are.
The most disappointing thing
about the last Friday's game was
the manner that it ended. I know
that these young men were dev-
astated by the mistakes that
were made and the missed
opportunities in the first half.
Many of those mistakes fall
squarely on my lap. I also know
that when Ocala Trinity went up
24-0, many of them felt as if our
season may be coming to an end.
None of that makes the behavior
we displayed on the field accept-
able. If you take a moment and
think about the pressure these
young men have been under this
season from everyone around
this town, the demands placed
upon them by myself, the expec-
tations they have for themselves,
and the pride they have in Tiger
Football, you can understand
their frustration and desperate
feelings. This is no excuse for
their behavior, but hopefully it
will ease the criticism being
dished out upon these young
men.
There was some behavior by a
few players that was unaccept-
able and not as visible and that
will be dealt with in an appropri-
ate manner when the time
comes, but to think for one
moment that the actions from,
this past Friday night tarnishes'
the things that these guys have
meant to this community over
the last five years is absurd. I
take full responsibility for allow-
ing these players to show their
emotions in inappropriate ways.
It is my job to teach these young
men the proper way to win and
also the proper way to lose. It is
also my responsibility to teach
them how to talk and handle
themselves in public. I have obvi-

more than 200 stern and side
wheel riverboats plied the the
Chattahoochee River between
Apalachicola, Fl. and Columbus,
GA. Many of these riverboats reg-
ularly stopped in Columbia, the
oldest city in Houston County
and one of the oldest cities in the
Wiregrass Region.
Soon, you will get your chance
to re-live a bit of our history and
experience the Chattahoochee

Coach


ously done a poor job in that
part of my program. I will
hopefully learn from my mis-
takes as a coach and correct
those mistakes in the future.
Anytime you lose a game, as
a coach you blame yourself
.and ask yourself, "What could I
have done different?" I have
asked myself that question and
will continue to ask myself that
:question until I make sure I
don't make the same mistakes
again.
I hope that the past five
years have been as rewarding
for you as they have for me and
I hope I have been able to
touch this program in more
positive ways than negative. In
the future, if anyone wants to
;criticize anything about what
we are doing, that criticism
Should lie with me. It is my job
:to prepare these players in all
.ways, on and off the field and
in their character, and I did not
do a very good job in several of
,these areas.
Now, it is time for me to find
a way to put that game and
Tiseason behind me and begin to
prepare for next season. In


next week's Coach's Corner, I
will finish the season by
thanking many of the people
who have been such a great
part of this team's success and
talk a little about the prepara-
tions for next season.
I love these young men and
what they have given to me
and this program. I will sin-
cerely miss these seniors, who
have built this program from
the literal bottom up. We have
19 and most of them have been
a vital part of the rebuilding of
this program. I thank them for
their hard work and for those
that have been loyal to me and
what I believe in. Together, we
have taken this program to
new places and none of you
will ever be forgotten. It has
been an amazing ride over the
last three seasons and I have
been privileged to be a part of
it. I love these Tigers and I
hope that everyone is as proud
of them as I am.

Congratulations on a great
run and GO TIGERS!!!!!!!! We
will see you for one final
Coach's Corner next week.

Bailey family tradition lives on at...





Magnolia Baptist Church


Jason Bailey, son of Clyde and
Sue Waldron Bailey and grand-
son of the late Clyde and Bonnie
Alford Bailey, continues a family
legacy at Magnolia Baptist
Church with his election by the
church as a deacon.
He was ordained Sunday,
September 15, 2005. This is, per-
haps, the oldest continuing line
of church service in the State of
Florida. Jason and his wife,
Rebecca, have four children,
Brittany, Emily, Abby, and
Jacob.
Magnolia Baptist Church was
established in 1873. The original
site of the church was about a
mile through the woods from the
present site. The church's name
came from a little creek named
Magnolia that was near the
church and this is where bap-
tism took place. In 1918, mem-


bers of the old church left the
original site and built the church
on the present site.
Magnolia Baptist Church was
founded by Jason's great-great-
great-great grandfather, Jesse
Wesley Bailey, Sr. The church
was organized in his home and
services were initially held there.
He served as a deacon and was a
member until his death about
1876. He donated the land for
the cemetery and where the
church stands today. His daugh-
ter, Cathryn Bailey, was the first
person buried in the cemetery
about 1867.
For the last 47 years, the
Bailey family has been gathering
annually at Magnolia Baptist
Church to pay tribute to their
ancestors, many of whom are
buried in the cemetery. They
come from as far away as

JASON BAILEY, pictured at
right, is continuing a family
legacy at Magnolia Baptist
Church. He was recently
elected by the church as a
deacon, following in the foot-
steps of his forefathers. His
great-great-great-great

Bailey, Sr., organized the
church and served as a dea-

Don't get scammed this holiday season...



Check out charities before giving


FORMER NAVY SEAL TOM POWELL OF ADVANCED TRAINING SERVICES
is shown with Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco following Hurricane
Katrina, A team from ATS, processed through the Altha-based training
facility, assisted with seach and rescue efforts and provided security.


ATS security


New Orleans," Powell explains.
The security mission was so
success.ful, the ATS team was
getting calls when the next storm
rolled around and a team of 150
were needed. Powell says ATS,
which is a private company, has
a good relationship with the


power company they were work-
ing with and they also received
exposure with other clients.
The Altha facility continues to
develop with 11 buildings and
two classrooms on site. They've
even invited law enforcement
officers in to sharpen their skills.


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging consumers to
take the time to investigate char-
itable organizations before mak-
ing any donations. There were
some charity scams during
recent hurricane relief efforts
and the holiday season is one of
the busiest for charities, many
collecting about half their annual
donations between Thanksgiving
and New Year's Day.
"There are more than 10,900
charities and professional solici-
tors registered with the
Department and it's important
that consumers find out all they
can about an organization before
making any contributions,"
Bronson said. "They can find out
not only whether a charity is
properly registered, but also how
it spends the donations."
Florida law requires most
charities to register with the
Department and provide finan-
cial information about income
and expenditures, including how
much is used for fundraising and
administrative costs, and how
much actually goes to program


services.
"People can take steps to make
sure a charity is properly regis-
tered but they shouldn't stop
there," Bronson said. "They can
use the financial information we
provide to determine whether
they think a charity is using
donations in a prudent manner."
Bronson offers these tips:
V Don't judge an organization
based on an impressive-sound-
ing name. Find out what it actu-
ally does.
/ Be wary of emotional
appeals and organizations that
have only vague plans for spend-
ing the funds they collect.
V Never give cash. Write a
check payable only to an organi-
zation-not an individual.
V Be wary of organizations
that offer to send a "runner" to
pick up your donation.
Reputable charities are willing to
wait for your contribution.
V Consumers have the right to
ask for an organization's finan-
cial report and its federal tax
identification number, the latter
of which you'll need to claim your
contribution as a tax deduction.
V Ask the organization to send


you written information about its
activities.
V If an organization is not reg-
istered, contact the Department.
Up-to-date information on


charities is available on the
Division of Consumer Services
web site at http://www.
800helpfla.com or by calling 1-
800-435-7352.

Daniels
in my power to do that. It's a
hard job."
He extends his appreciation to
the community for all their sup-
port, as well as his fellow board
members. "We may not always
see eye to eye, but we've always
worked together," he remarks.
Along the way, they've joined
forces to create new classrooms
at Carr School, a softball field at
Altha, a concession stand at
Bowles Field, and countless
other projects.
With 11 more meetings before
his final term ends, Daniels says
he will continue giving his all to
the Calhoun County School
District: "Calhoun County has
great students and great teach-
ers," he emphasizes. "The whole
school system...you couldn't ask
for a better group of employees
from the bus drivers and janitors
to the secretaries."
And after he attends his last
board meeting as a member,
Daniels'says he will definitely
stay involved behind the scenes.
