Sunday or early morning hours
Monday.
Later on Monday, Sheriff
David Tatum received a call
from a man who asked if a van
had been reported stolen from
the area. Sheriff Tatum advised
that city officials had a stolen
van case and the man provided
him with the tag number and
told him who was driving it.
"The guy [Preston Eason] went
to his house and he knew that
fellow shouldn't have a van like
that," Maj. Srnith explains. "He
dug through the van and found
some cell phone numbers and
started calling them. One was
Bob Fleck's son and the other
was David Tatumn."
Sheriff Tatum immediately


contacted the BPD and Maj.
Smith notified the Panama City
Police Department. Authorities
arrived at the location and
learned Eason had left five
minutes earlier.
Meanwhile. an alert was
issued on the van and the
Florida Highway Patrol spotted
it. While fleeing from authori-
ties, Eason wrecked the van on
Hw,. 79. about 10 miles north
of Hwy. 20. He then bailed out
of the vehicle that was wedged
against a tree and fled the
scene on foot. Soon after, "a
neighbor advised somebody
was trying to break in her
truck and took off running,"
says Maj. Smith.
Bay County authorities con-


tacted the BPD for assistance
in tracking Eason. The BPD
and Calhoun Correctional
Institution K-9 teamrespond-
ed.."He had about an hour and
a half head start on us," says
Maj. Smith. adding that he had
to tread through a deep pond
to make his escape. "We ran
him from the vehicle about 15
to 20 minutes and found him
laying in an abandoned junk
type truck. He was in the cab of
it laying down, hiding from us.
He was trying to steal some-
thing, but it was so dark he
didn't realize the truck was a
junker."

Family escapes injury

as heater ignites blaze,


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A Blountstown family was
fortunate to have only minor
damage to their home after a
fire erupted from a wood
heater Thursday night.
Firefighters from the West
Side and Blountstown \TDs
responded to the call at 11
p.m. and headed to the home
of Gus and Florence Martinez
on Hwy. 69 South. Florence
had been cleaning when she
smelled something coming
from a new living room addi-
tion at her mobile home. She
realized a fire was spreading
from the wood heater to her
ceiling, called 911, and got
her two children out of the
house safely. Her husband
was working at the time.
Firefighters contained the
blaze to a small roof area on


the new addition to the home.
"They installed a wood
heater using only single wall
pipe, running it through the
roof," West Side \FD Chief
Bobby Clark tells The County
Record. "The single wall pipe
has no thermal protection, so
the wood got hot enough to
ignite due to the stove pipe.
touching it. It's a lot safer to
have it professionally
installed. Amateur installa-
tion of wood and gas heaters
is very unsafe."
Florence says they received
some bad advice when they
purchased the wood heater
and she is grateful the fire
wasn't any worse. She
extends her appreciation to
all those, who helped.
"Everyone from the dispatch-
er and deputies to the fire-
fighters were wonderful," she
remarks.

BY CONGRESSMAN ALLEN BOYD

One of the bedrock principles
of our democracy is open and
accountable government. .Our
forefathers intended lor the'
Cotnstitution and our laws to
uphold the ideals of a free and
open government-one that allows
for and promotes the distribution
of power and sufficient public
discourse and scrutiny. As citi-
zens, we want to know that our
hard-earned tax dollars are being
spent properly and wisely by
elected representatives who are
not abusing their power and are
held accountable.
Unfortunately, many politicians
in \Vashineton have taken ad\an-
tage of the power the public has
bestowed on them by favoring
political maneuvering over policy
discussions and preventing prop-
er public and Congressional
oversight. This type of political
climate is unproductive and
unhealthy for our country, and
it's time for America to do better.
Our government works best
when it is balanced, and the
checks and balances system
e.xists between the three branch-
es of our federal government for
this reason. Additionally. our
government works best w-hen
power is equally distributed
among the political parties.
When one party gains too much

The bride chose her cousin,

power there is an inevitable ten-
dency for misuse of that power.
A balanced and representative
political atmosphere allows the
parties to rein each other in and
bring their policies and initiatives
to the center of the political spec-
trum, where most Americans
happen to be. The best pieces of
legislation have resulted from
this type of effort, where con-
structive political debate and
compromises between
Republicans and Democrats are
possible.
Beyond undermining the con-
stitutional system of checks and
balances. abuse of power is a
proven formula for a faulty and
weak government, as seen by
recent scandals and problems
within our government's ranks.
Misuse of political power and
excess secrecy surrounding our
government are manifesting
through the indictment of a sen-
ior Administration official, the
indictment of the House Majority
Leader. charges of bribery and
rmsconduct among rank and file
members of the House and
Senate. a deteriorating fiscal
house, spending policies run
amok. and a war we all hoped
and expected would be over by
now. Clearly it is time for our
country to revisit what we stand
for and then stand up for these
democratic ideals.

Maybe 'consolidation'
isn't such a dirty word
"In a progressive country
change is constant;... change ...
is inevitable."
SA Scottish man by the name of
Benjamin Disraeli made that
statement back in 1867.
Here in Calhoun County, 138
years later, we find ourselves on
the edge of some major changes
in our school district. Changes
;that seem, as Disraeli put it,
inevitable.
In recent months, our school
board members have been brave
enough to say a word out loud
that has only been whispered in
decades past: consolidation. Over
the years, consolidation almost
seemed like a dirty word that
elected officials were afraid to
utter in public places for fear of
being booted from their posts
and run out of town on the next
train (well...if we still had a
train).
No matter where you stand on
this issue, I hope you agree our
school leaders should be conm-
Smended for having the courage to
study all options when it comes
to our school district even if
those options aren't always pop-
ular..
For many people, sa-inp good-
bye to an old school seems
unthinkable. Maybe it's the fear
of change...fear of the unknown.
We all get in our comfort zones in
practically every area of our lives.
We like to drive our familiar car
in our familiar town, talk with
our familiar friends and sleep in
bur familiar bed. The hometown
school is part of our familiar,
comfortable lives, as is the home-
town team we cheer for on Friday
nights. For many people, it's part
of their identity.
As a graduate of Blountstown
High, I understand what it
means to have pride in your
school. In fact, BHS is part of my
family's heritage. My father, my
sister, and I all graduated from
BHS, as did several aunts,
uncles, and cousins. My grandfa-
ther graduated from Altha way
back in the early days of Altha
School. But even if those schools
aren't standing tomorrow, our
memories of times there will
remain. Nothing can change.
that And we'll still have class
reunions, old photos, and funny
stories to cherish through the
years.
Hanging onto the past is
always easy, while letting go and


moving forward is usually a little
uncomfortable. I'm sure it wasn't
easy for the kids at the old school
in Frink or Mayhaw or all the
other little country schools that
dotted this county way back
when and have since disap-
peared, merged into larger
schools that are now being asked
to merge themselves.
Trading in two or three small
schools for one larger one would-
certainly be an adjustment and a
big step out of our comfort zones.
But, as a BHS alumnus, I'm
excited about the possibility of a
new countywide high school, as
well as the combined middle
school. To me, it's like taking the
best of both worlds and bringing
them together for the kids in our
school district. Marie Granger's
national award winning culinary
arts course and Ron Mears' state
championshipp FFA program
would be available to all stu-
dents, along with state of the art
computer and science labs, Boys
at Altha could finally play foot-
ball and enhance a champi-
onship program. The possibilities
are endless.
And what about those Friday
nights? How will we feel if we find
ourselves in the stands cheering
for a different team? I have a
niece and nephew who attend
school and play sports at Sneads
(a school that will be consolidat-
ing with Grand Ridge next year).
When those kids are on the court
or the field, I'm cheering for the
Pirates even if they're playing
Blountstown. What I've found
through that experience is we
cheer for the kids we love, no
matter what team colors they're
wearing. If we lose the Tigers and
the Wildcats, we'll have that
same school pride for the new
county school and an even big-
ger cheering section. It's the kids
who make the team, not the
school colors on their backs.
One school official told me he.
recently walked through the
halls of the new Marianna High
School. "That's when I knew we
were cheating our students," he
remarked.
I salute our leaders for tack-
ling this heated issue and urge
the community to get educated
on the matter and get involved in
'the public- meetings. Our schools
are probably one of the greatest -
if not the greatest assets in.our
county. If consolidation can
make them even better, I'm all for
4+

A Double Life! No!
Luke 11:36
Ethel Hasbett has described
Allen Gilberts painting titled, All
Is Vanity, like this: Allen Gilbert
has painted a young woman'
dressed in a turn-of-the century
gown with her hair, piled atop her
head and seated before a vanity
table and its mirror. Lined
against the mirror are numerous
bottles that probably contain
cosmetics. Two slender candles
provide the only light in the oth-
erwise dark room.
The artist has masterfully cre-
ated the literal scene that fades
into a haunting second scene in
which the real objects take on
the sinister aspects of a skull.
The mirror becomes the cranium;
the young woman and her reflec-
tion double as the hollow eye
sockets; the row of bottles
become the skull's teeth; and the
scarf atop the vanity table is
transformed into the skull's
ghastly chin.
As Gilbert portrays two views
in the same painting, you and I
must be careful that we don't
attempt to harbor darkness
along with light in our hearts and
lives. After the light of the gospel
illumines our hearts and bathes
us in its bright rays, our whole
body should be glowing with
light, having no part of any dark-
ness.
It is impossible for the two to
coexist: Either the light will
expose those hidden a'eas of
darkness and we will deal with
them, or the light of God's Word
will be swallowed up by the
oppression of the darkness 'of
'sin: Iwe seioul leb that happen,
we, like Gilbert, and yes. like
Solomon, will find that life is
meaningless and all is vanity.

LETR TO THE EDITOR


To the Editor:
Whose more important this
Christmas season Santa or
Baby Jesus, God's most precious
gift to mankind?
If your first love is Jesus, let's
decorate our yards to reflect His
'birth. Especially pastors and
churches, let's set an example for
others.

Dr. Barry Edewaard
Blountstown

Dear Editor:
We are writing to express our
,concern about the potential "con-
solidation" of Calhoun County
Schools.
We are being led to believe
that the only way the State of
Florida will fund any new build-
inrgs in our county' is to consoli-
date and build one school
instead of Altha, Blountstown,
and Carr Community each
recei\vng new buildings that they
,need. If this is the case, how did
Poplar Springs, Bethlehem, and
Bonifay in Holmes County get
funding to build each of those
comm unities new buildings?
It is my understanding that
the Holmes County School Board
once considered consolidation
and found out very quickly from
the communities that this was
not what the TAXPAYING resi-
dents wanted. Holmes County
got their new buildings on a
rotating 3-year-cycle. Why Is this
not an option being presented by
the Calhoun County School
Board? Why does this Board.
seem so determined to consoli-
date the schools?
If our county was bankrupt, or
if our county had failing schools.
or if our county was smaller in
land area, I can see where con-
solidation might be an option.
However, this Board prides itself
in maintaining over $5 million in
reserve. The county also has the
highest.graduation rate in the
state, and no school in the coun-
ty is even close to being a failing
school. So why start closing
[small community schools just to
build one large one? The schools
we have now ARE WORKING!
Some say consolidation would
bring more opportunities to our
students. What specific opportu-
'nities will consolidation bring?
We are residents of Altha and
graduated from Altha School.
Both of our children graduated
from there, and our grandson
also attends Altha School.-.We
k-now the excellent educ-atlon'
they have each received. The stu-
dents at Altha receive an excel-
lent education and thousands of
dollars of scholarships are given
away each year to graduating
seniors. If the schools are consol-
idated. we fear many students
who attend Altha may not receive
scholarship money because the
competition becomes stiffer and
with more students trying for the
scholarships. fewer students will
get them. The,amount of local
scholarships is not going to
increase with increased student
numbers at a. county wide
school.
Another concerns is the loca-
tion of this new school. If the:
honorable thing is done and the
school is located at the geograph-
ical center of the county, (which is
only fair so all students would
travel equal distances), this
would put the school on the west
side of the Chipola River some-
where in the Shelton's Corner
area west of Altha. Why is that a
good location to house several
hundred students? It is far away
from any town. it is out of the
way for parents to come to. and it
is one of the least populated
areas of Calhoun County. Why
.would you build what would
become the most populated
school in the county in the least
populated area of the county?.
One of the proposed plans rec-
ommended making Blountstown
High School the new Calhoun
County Middle School and build-
ing a new Calhoun County High
School somewhere centralized.
How would this be financially
feasible since you would obvious-
ly have to run separate high
school bus routes and middle
school bus routes (in addition to
the elementary routes). There is
ho.way you can have buses come
,all the way from as far away as
pcheesee and Altha to drop off
middle school students, then


drive all the way to Clarks\-llle to
drop off high school students.
This is unfeasible because
there are very few roads that run
from these areas to the Shelton's
area. The Chipola River only has
two east/west crossings:, on
Highway 20 near Clarksville and
on Hwy. 274 at Willis :Bridge,
south of Altha. This means that
anyone going to this new central-
ized school will have to come all
the way to Altha or go all the way
to BlountstonT in order to get
across the river to the new
school. Additionally, many of the
back roads that connect to Hwy.
20 and 274 are not good roads
(many of which are unpaved),
and with the new school (the
most populated school in the
county) west of the river and the


majority of the population on the
east side of the river, there is
going to be a significant increase
in the amount of traffic on these
roads. Is the Calhoun County
Board of Commissioners ready to
improve these roads to accom-
modate the hundreds of cars that
would have to travel these roads
each day? Has the Calhoun
County School Board even dis-
cussed road issues with the
Board of County
Commissioners?
Additionally, because of the
limited access to river crossings
(that number being two bridges),
has the School Board considered
the length of bus rides the chil-
dren will have to endure in order
to get to school every day? It's not
like there can be many routes to
this new school if it, in fact, is
located on thewest side of the
Chipola River. No matter how
many back roads are used, every
bus and every car headed to this
new school will only be able to
get there one of two ways: via
Hwy. 20 through Clarksville or
Hwy. 274 at Willis Bridge west of
Altha.
A final concern is what the
consolidation will do to the com-
munities themselves. A central-
ized school, whether it's a middle
school or high school, is going to
take students away from Altha,
Blountstown, and Carr
Community. We live in a small
county where the schools are the
central focus of the community.
Does the Board even care what
will happen to these towns?
Additionally. the alumni of these
schools have great memories and
pride in their respective schools.
Taking away these community
schools and throwing our kids
into one centralized large school
is taking away years of history
and traditions from all areas:
Altha, Blountstown. and Carr.
There would be no more Altha
Wildcats or Blountstown Tigers.
These schools would be; lost in
history along with the decades of
memories people have of these
schools.
It is our hope that everyone
who is against the consolidation
ofi these schools will closely
watch for meetings and show up
at these meetings to let the Board
and Superintendent Neves know
that they are against consolidat-
ing the schools. Do not let these
people take away our COMMUNI-
TY schools. Calhoun County
SSchools are among the top,
ranked in Florida. The number.
one graduation rate in Florida"
speaks for itself. With a county
that consistently makes the state
honor roll list (as according to
The A+ Schools Plan), -has such
high school grades and FCAT
scores, has outstanding athletic
programs, and has a reserve
account of approximately $5 mil-
lion, why change it?
An old saying applies to this
whole situation: "If it ain't broke,
don'tfix it."

Dear Editori
I am normally a person who is
slow to anger, but the one side-
ness of our state football playoff
system stinks. Our legislature
turns a deaf ear to such gripes;
because they send their children
to private schools. Our governor
offers them vouchers, and they
don't have to take the dreaded
FCAT and that is a great recruit-
ing tool.
It is bad enough to have a play
Vernon and the Panhandle all-
stars every year, and now we play
such schools as North Florida
Christian 'and Tampa Berkley
Prep who can recruit. But play-
ing Ocala Trinity Christian is the
most unfair pairing of all for our
school nwth great local talent.
I. was strongly opposed for
paying our football coach
$12,000 for his hundreds of
hours of dedication. The coach-
es and players were the most
dedicated young, men to any
cause I have ever witnessed and
they did a marvelous job of.enter-
taining and representing, us the
past few years. Then here comes
Ocala Trinity Catholic that pays
their head coach a $100,000 a
year,, and ante's up 8300,000 for
their entire coaching budget.
SOur assistant coaches earn
$2,500 a year: for their toil and
sweat. We work our fannies off,
and sweat blood to build our
football program. They summon
kids from Texas. Georgia,,
'Oviedo, Tampa, and all the other
schools in Marion County, and
God only knows where else.


We played our hearts out
against them to.begin with, and'
more than held our own.
However, the referees from hell
continued to show their quick
draw talent and bombarded us
all night with flags. Many were
probably deserved, and many
were questionable. What those
flags did was steal our momen-
tum, erode our confidence,
destroy our concentration, and
literally break our backs when so
many outstanding plays were
nullified and called back#


I am not a grumbler as a
Whole, but I was angry for what I
'felt like were biased and inten-
tional calls against our outstand-
ing team of high quality young
men. I will look forward to next
season with anticipation and
whether we win or lose it's thle
Tigers I choose.
Thanks coaches and players
for all the great memories, and it
was truly a great ride in 2005.
Respectfully,
Tommy McClellan

Dear Editor,
Words honestly can not
describe my feelings after the end
of the Trinity Ocala game. So
many words come to mind, but
none of them are deep enough to
use to describe any of my emo-
tions. I found myself just sitting
and shaking my head in disbe-
lief, unable to do anything else.
As I watched my son come out
of the game in disgust and sit
down on the bench with a towel
over his head, there was a knot
in my stomach., Not knowing
what had happened exactly, I
could tell it was very bad.
Especially when two other play-
ers joined him and play contin-
ued. As word spread like wildfire
through the stands it was then I.
learned he had been ejected. It
was then the knot in my stomach
grew to the size of a basketball.
Our loss was inevitable at that
point. All my thoughts turned to,
what am I going to say to my son
to console him?'
Did he say or do the right
thing, no he didn't. But that
moment was gone and nothing I
or he could say would get it back
again, so we move on from there.
These young men are exactly
that, "young". If you're expecting
them to say or do the right thing
100 percent of the time, then
you're going to be disappointed.
How many times have we as
adults said or did something in
the heat of the moment, only to
regret it later? Am I making
excuses for my son or others, no
I am not. I would simply ask you
to look at your own life and
actions and then and only then
pass judgement.
There is nothing you could
say, and you've probably already
said it, that could make my son
or the other boys feel any worse
than they already do. To' have my
son end his high school football
career, and the last game he'd
play with 18 other seniors as wdll
as coup less Leaimiates by being
.'ejected, well that's something he
wouldn't have thought of in his
wildest "nightmare".


To all of you who "truly" know
my son then my words are not
necessary. You were undoubted-
ly there Friday night and were
kind enough to hug his neck and
console him. So that you heard
his heartfelt apology for yourself.
He took all the blame for his
actions as well as all the guilt
that comes with it. He apologized
to the fans, but most of all to his
teammates, who he felt he let
down most of all. It's easy to step
up and have something to say
when you're winning, but the
words are more heartfelt when
you've lost it all.
We could easily play the blame
game, but now is not the time for
that. We need to show our sons
and daughters how adults
should act in this situation.
SIt was a wonderful season full
of happy memories and exciting
times. As Greta Jenks put it, the
memories can never be taken
away.
So to my son and the entire
football team and staff, as well as
the cheerleaders, thank-you for


allowing me to be a part of your
young lives. My two years on the
"chain gang" with Nick and Greta
were simply a blast I am really
going to miss it, but it's time for
hopefully another Mom to have
some fun. I encourage ya'll to be
a part of something wonderful -
your son's life, you'll never regret
it. To the football team and espe-
cially my son all I can say is I
love you and 'Thanks for the
memories"!

the., critical words out of
Washington of the only president
since WW2 that has the back-

WILDCATS SHOOT DOWN
BUCKS
ALTHA, November 29-Every
deer hunter dreams of bagging a
big buck on the opening day of
deer season.
Last Tuesday night, the Altha
Junior Varsity Wildcats declared
open season on the Bozeman
Bucks and bagged a 33-11 win.
They did so with sharp shooting
from the- field and a stifling
defense. The Cats put up 10
points in the first quarter while
Bozeman could only muster a
point. Coach Sidney Granger
substituted liberally in the sec-
ond quarter and the Cats took an
18-2 halftime lead into their
locker room. In the third period
the Cats continued to build on
their lead stretching it to 23-7.
They would add 10 more points
in the fourth quarter while allow-
ing the Bucks to score only four
points.
As a team the Cats knocked
down 11 out of 17 field goals
(65%) while Bozeman made 4 out
of 9 attempts (44%). On their
free throw attempts, the Cats
sacked only 1 of 7 (14%) while
Bozeman made good on 3 of their
4 shots (75%). From beyond the
3-point arc, the Cats canned 4 of
7 attempts (57%) and Bozeman
came up short on their only
attempt. The Cats turned the
ball over 15 times and they
forced Bozeman to give it up 19
'times.
Altha's Corde Beauchamp led
all scorers with 13 points and he
swished all 3 of his 3-point
attempts. Also, Beauchamp had
4 rebounds. Josh McIntosh
sank 10 points along with 2
rebounds and 4 steals. Ethan
Byler and Nic Chamberlain post-
ed 4 points each. Chamberlain
cleared 3 boards and he had a
steal. Juan Alejos rounded out
the Cats scoring with a field goal
and he had 4 rebounds.
WILDCATS' STEAL SEALS

La-Ft Thursd:a' night in
Panama Cil he stepped in front
of a Covenant Christian Lions'
player and stole the inbounds
pass with 3 seconds left to secure
the Cats' second consecutive
win, 36-34.


Starting sluggishly the
Wildcats and Lions played to a 6-
6 first quarter tie. In the second
period, the Cats built a 16-12
lead. When the third quarter
ended, the Wildcats were on top,
25-16. Then that lead began to
evaporate as the Lions outscored
the Cats 18-11 in the final stan-
za.
Josh McIntosh led the
Wildcats in scoring with 12
points along with 8 rebounds, 8
steals, and a blocked shot.
Corde Beauchamp netted 10
points along with 2 rebounds
and 3 steals. Juan Alejos posted
8 points along with a rebound, a
steal and a blocked shot. Nic
Chamberlain added a field goal
and he had 2 rebounds and a
.steal.
Offensively, the Wildcats made
15 out of 25 (60%) of their field
goals while the Lions made 10 of
16 (63%). From free throw line,
the Cats canned 6 of 7 attempts
(86%) and the Lions were good on
6 of their 10 attempts (60%). The
Cats swished 2 out of 5 shots
(40%) from 3-point land while the
Lions made 2 of their 3 attempts
(67%).
Defensively, the Wildcats
forced 21 turnovers while com-
mitting 16 themselves.

GRAND RIDGE, December 2-
Not being in a party mood the
Junior Varsity Wildcats decided
to crash Grand Ridge's home-
coming last Friday night with a
30-23 win.
Altha opened the contest with
an 11-2 first quarter lead. They
extended that lead to 18-8 at
halftime. At the end of three
quarters the score was 23-13.
Josh McIntosh led all scorers
with 14 points, including 5 out of

steals. Juan Alejos chalked up 3
points. Nic Chamberlain
