The possibility of-school con-
solidation continues to be the
topic in Calhoun County and
officials want the community to
understand how a new school
would be funded.
According to information pro-
vided to, The County Record by
Assistant School Superintendent
Greg Jones, the Florida legisla-
ture established a Special Facility
Construction Account (SFCA)
back in 1980. The purpose of the
SFCA is to help small, rural dis-
tricts fund major construction
Here in Calhoun County, one
of the options local school lead-
ers are considering is building a
new countywide high school and
turning the existing Blountstown
High School into a countywide
middle school. Funds from SFCA
are a real possibility to pay for
In order to apply for funding,
school districts must levy a dis-
cretionary local two-mill tax 1.5
mills to be pledged for the project
and the other .5 to be used for
other needs such as repairs.
"This amount changes each
year," Jones explains. "But prob-
ably this year it's around $1.7.
The good news is, these capi-
tal outlay funds will only be
pledged for three consecutive
years. "At the end of those three
years, there's no strings
attached," Jones reports. "It's
If the countywide school proj-
ects are approved, the Calhoun
County School District would
put in their portion generated
from the 1.5 mill tax and the
state fund would pick up the rest
of the bill. An example of how
this program works is over in
Jackson County where the new
Marianna High School was
recently constructed. The project
totalled nearly $21 million with
the school district paying almost
25 percent of the bill and the
state picking up the other 75
Jones is excited about the
possibilities for the Calhoun
County School District, noting
that funds could be used to
"build a school, purchase land,
build a gymnasium, track, and
weight room." Jones says,
should the School Board choose
this option, a proposal must be
ready by August 2006 to go
before the 2007 legislature. If it's
approved he says, "Probably by
the 2009 school year, we could
have a new school."

Meet David & Mitzy
i:- The holidays seem to bring out
the generous spirit, so I'm shar-
ing a story this weel about a
place that needs your help.
A few months back, I ran
across some information on a
children's home known as Casa
Hogar. Back in 2002, Bryan
Nurnberger, a recent college grad
from Connecticut was spending
the summer exploring the world
when he stumbled upon Casa
Hogar while driving through
Oaxaca (pronounced Wa-ha-ka),
Mexico. The folks there welcomed
him with open arms and,
although moved by their hospi-
tality, he was horrified by the
conditions of the orphanage.
With no government assis-
tance, providing enough food for
the 80 children who call Casa
Hogar home was a serious issue.
Funds were so limited, some of
the younger kids and mentally
handicapped children wore the
same diaper for a week.
Transporting the children to
school was also difficult due to
an unreliable bus that frequently
What was to be a brief stop at
the school during his vacation
turned into a two month mission
trip for Nurnberger. When he
returned to the states, the 24-
year-old formed a non-profit
organization to-help Casa Hogar..
The goal was clear and simple: to
'raise. the standard of Living.at
Caa "IH'oghr to an acceptable
For the past three years,
Nurnberger has been meeting
with churches, Rotary Clubs,
school groups, and anyone who
will listen, spreading the word
about the needs at Casa Hogar.
The organization he created,
known as Simply Smiles, pro-
vides anyone of any age an
opportunity to get involved. One
way to help is to sponsor a child
and I recently signed up to sup-
S port David, 9, and Mitzy, 6, who
are pictured above.
Chineteco Indians, both Mitzy,
and David were severely abused
by their 22-year-old single moth-,
er. The stress of abusive relation-
ships, the responsibtlty of hav-
ing two children when she was
alone and so young, and extreme
poverty, led their mom to con-
star.i? take her Irustrations out
physically on her children.
-e'l.ati,.es finlaily stepped d in and
hel[p:.-' to turn David a.nd Mitzv
over to Casa Hogar about a year

one .,r :" bright !i.i at Casa
HegarHuge smiles, little dances,
rsl;i.. .. from church, or.
just twirling and playing with the
other girls, Mitzy is a ball of
incredibly cute energy.
The abuse David experienced
left him nervous and defensive
around others, especially adults.
Dropped into a new life, David is
determined to adjust well and
bring his sister along with him.
David just exudes business and
it seems he has instantly earned
not only the friendship, but
respect of the other children at
Casa Hogar. Running, playing,
coloring, .climbing on the swing-
set, David is having a good time
and enjoying the relief of the
safety that Casa Hogar has pro-
vided for him. However, don't
think for even a minute that
David will let his guard down. It
is so clear that whatever he is
doing, he has the corner of his
eye on his little sister.
These are just two of the 80
plus and growing number of
children being blessed with a
new life at Casa Hogar. What I
like most about supporting these
children and the Simply Smiles
organization's efforts is the fact
that 98 percent of every penny
given goes directly to the orphan-
age to meet the needs of these
children. There aren't any high
paid executives at Simply Smiles;
just people who want to raise the
standard of living for these chil-
dren in need. Another thing that
has impressed me is the fact you
can go visit Casa Hogar at,.aiy
timen.and' ee for yourself what is
happening there. 'ou can alsc,
email "your children" each week,
send letters and packages, and
even a video message. What's
great is the orphanage will help
the children email y6u back and
send you back a photo or video of
your children opening the gifts or
cards you've sent them.
Go to www.simplysmiles.org to
find out how you can help and be
sure to check out the video. They
tell the story of the new bus
Nurnberger was able to provide
for the kids thanks to several
churches in Connecticut. There's
also an amazing Christmas video
from last year when the children
were treated to a meal at
McDonald's and returned back to
the orphanage to find new play-
ground equipment, as well as
toys and clothing for each child,
provided by Casa Hogar support-
With all the progress, there is
still much to be done. And
Simply Smiles' work at the
orphanage will not be complete
until the standard of living is at
an acceptable level. For details

Cong. Boyd votes for
middle class tax relief
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida) supported tax
relief for middle-class taxpayers
this week with the passage of the
Stealth Tax Relief Act (HR 4096).
Set to expire next year., the bill
includes i orne-\ve ftrix of the
Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT)
to prevent tax increases on more
than 17 million middle-class
families next year.
"This legislation provides
much-needed tax relief to mid-
dle-class families who are work-
ing hard to make ends meet,"
said Congressman Boyd. "Due to
inflation, the number of taxpay-
ers that fall into the AMT group
is growing each year, and failure
to enact this legislation and
extend the exemption levels
would increase taxes on millions
of middle-class families. This is
simply unfair and not the pur-
pose of the AMT."
The AMT was created in 1969
to ensure that high-income indi-
viduals and corporations who
pay little to no taxes under the
regular system because of deduc-
tions, credits or other provisions
are taxed more fairly. Unlike the
regular tax, income levels subject
to the AMT are not indexed for
inflation. Therefore, if Congress
does not adjust the exemption
levels for inflation, a greater
number of people would become
eligible each year as incomes
grow and exceed these levels.
"While this bill gives middle-
class families a helping hand, it
is only a short-term solution to
the problem," Boyd stated. "It is
my hope that Congress will get
serious about budget reform in
the upcoming year and work to
enact comprehensive legislation
so we can fix the problem perma-
nently instead of continuing this
temporary band-aid strategy."
According to the Joint
Committee on Taxation (JCT),
while'fewer than 1 percent of tax-
payers were subjected to AMT

cially during the first quarter
with a quick 16-4 lead. This win
made them 3-2.
The J.V. upped their season to
5-0 with their 5th quarter wini,

well as offensively.
The Varsity defeated
Wewahitchka on Thursday, 23-
21. After maintaining a 12-5
first quarter lead, our offensive
scoring dropped. We missed too
many easy shots around the goal
to maintain our comfortable lead.
,After a: L4-10 halftime we
dropped tq -J l8-16' nd ,of third
quarter. Brion Simmons came
up with a real good steal for a
quick lay-up that helped pre-
serve our lead. In the final 4 sec-
onds Wewa had an inbound pos-
session that was intercepted by
Jason Money to prevent an "OT"
or even a possible loss. Jacob
Wainwright played a great game
and led in RB's and scoring with
13 points. The Varsity is now 7-
2 on their season.
The J.V. had no trouble with
Wewa in their 24-1 win. They
continued to play very well as a

ing with 8 points. Both Paul and
Javon Mosley added 7 more
each. The J.V. is, now 9-0.
BY COACH LINK BARBER
The Lady Tigers basketball team
lost 2 games this past week to drop
to 2 and 3 on the season.
In the first game, the Tigers were
defeated 37-27 by Grand Ridge. The
Tigers struggled the entire game
and just could not catch a break.
"It seemed as if there was a lid on
the goal we were shooting at. all
night," said Coach Barber. "No mat-
ter what we did we could not get the
ball in the hoop. We were 9 for 51
shooting from the floor and 6 for 23
from the free throw line. You can't
win shooting like that. Other than
not being able to score I thought we
played pretty good. Defensively we
played well and we had our lowest
amount of turnovers on the season
with only 12, If we can learn to pro-
tect the ball I feel the shoots will
eventually begin to fall for us:"
The second loss of the week came
in a district game to Sneads by a
score of 58-54 in overtime. The
Tigers fought back from a 13 point
deficient at halftime to send the
game to overtime. In overtime the
Pirates free throw shooting was just
too much for the Tigers to overcome.
"In the Sneads game, our girls
played beyond our 'expectations,"
Coach Barber remarked. "We played
well the first quarter and were in the
game but the second quarter turned
out to be a nightmare when we
could only score 2 points in the
entire 8 minutes. At halftime, trail-
ing 13 points, we were basically
wanting our girls not to give up. We
knew we could play better than
what we were playing. After half-
time the girls came out and score 37.
points in the remaining 2 quarters
to send the game into overtime. I
was excited about the way the girls
played the 2nd half and the energy
they showed. .With 14 seconds in
the game we had a lead and I should
have called a time out and settled
the girls down but I could tell the
Sneads was panicking and I didn't
want them to get a chance to
regroup. Looking back, that proba-
bly cost us the game. We threw,up
a wide shop shot when we should
have been holding on to the ball. If
we make it it's wonderful, if we miss
we're crazy. In overtime they got a
lead and we were forced into fouling.
The girls played very well and are
excited that we could come together
as a leam and cla\ our \\ay back
into a game against a very good
Sneads team. The most posilve part
about the game to me was it was a
team effort. We had 4 starters on
the bench in overtime that were
fouled out and we still found a way
to stay in the game. 'We also went
16 for 22 at the free throw line
which was a great improvement
from the night before."

week's games were:

involving Santana occurred in a
playoff game against
Chattahoochee. 'Their number
one running back was a big boy,"
he says. "I told her if he comes

all the fuss was about: Santana
had made the tackle. "She hit
him so hard it was like she
dropped a sack of taters," he
remarks. "All the fans from their
side figured out she was a girl
and they could not believe she
rocked his world."
By season's end, Santana had
earned the respect of everyone
that watched her play. "I told her,
'Don't you go off and get soft,
don't take ballet,'" says Coach
Brown, adding he'd have her on
his team any day. "She came out
as a little girl and she left as a
football player. That's all you can
expect out of any of them."
during the season. That chance
finally came in the game against
Port St. Joe. "We figured if she
didn't get touched, she'd make
it," Brown recalls, adding that, as
it turned out, "She caught it, ran
it, and made two tackles by big
boys to make the
touchdown...and it was about a
40 yard touchdown."
"It felt good," Santana says on
scoring her first touchdown. "I

Melody Jones tells about a
small boy and his mother who
were shopping together in a large
department, store. Somehow, in:.
the course of'the morning they
"-became separated from each
ohierand the boy realized he was
lost in the crowd. He tried in
vain to fight back the tears but
was unable to do so and soon
was sobbing brokenheartedly.
He ran up and down the aisles of
the huge store, calling "Mommy!
Mommy! Where are you?"
Suddenly, over the store loud-
speaker he heard a familiar
"Jimmy," the voice said, every-
thing is all right. this is your
mom. I'm at the service desk and
I am waiting for you. Stop right
where you are. Wait until one of
the clerks finds you, and she will
bring you-to me."
Inimediately upon hearing his
mother's voice, Jimmy became
quiet and d od \ern still., Soon
he was in his mother's arms,
weeping again, this time in hap-
piness and relief.
Just one voice. This hat is wheat
he heard in the midst of the hur-
rying busy crowd. One voice
stood out from all the others.
That voice comforted him and
gave him directions to safety.
; Should we not also listen to
one voice. and.only one voice?
The voice of our God gives the
J only direction to which you and I
should pay attention. The Lord
had a very good reason for for-
bidding Israel to listen to those
who practiced witchcraft and all
other sorceries. Ho* could they
clearly hear and understand His
voice il they were listening to the
other detestable voices of that
Let us listen closely today to
the one and only voice of our
Lord and our God.

Varparota is about 100 miles
southwest of Budapest. During
the trip, the men assisted in the
building of a new church that
will replace a rented building the
people are now occupying. It is
interesting that the new church
will be almost 100% concrete and
block. The wiring is inserted into
chiseled out trenches in the
block walls, then it will be cov-
ered with one-half inch stucco.
The church will be heated by
hundreds of feet of hot water
tubing laid beneath the concrete
Even though the work was
hard, the men thoroughly
enjoyed working together with
the pepple_.of VarpaLo ta, on Lhe
project. There was no shortage
of home-cooked food on the job-
site and the men enjoyed first
class accommodations at the
hotels in which they stayed.
Plans are now being consid-
ered for future missions endeav-
ors to other foreign countries.

Firefighters offer tips on heaters, Christmas trees
Stay safe this holiday season
Blountstown and West Side
volunteer firefighters recently
responded to a fire at a home in
Hugh Creek that was caused by
an improperly installed wood
heater. With that in mind, as well
as the fact the Christmas holi-
days are underway, firefighters
are offering the following safety
Home Heaters- Space
Home heating equipment was
involved in an estimated 45,500
home structure fires in 2002,
causing some 220 deaths.
Stovepipes and chimneys
According to NFPA 211, clear-
S ances between the stovepipe that
S connects the stove to the chim-
S ney and combustible materials
are equally important.
Unprotected walls and ceilings
need at least 18 inches (46 cen-
timeters) clearance from the
stovepipe, which should be as
short as possible. Stovepipe sec-
tions should be securely fastened
, together by screws, and the
crimped ends of the pipe should
Chimneys should be inspected
regularly for creosote buildup.
NFPA suggests allowing no more
than 1/4 inch (0.6 centimeters)
of creosote to build up before
cleaning. Using your fireplace
two to three times a week during
the winter may result in a 1/4 -
inch (0.6-centimeter) accumula-
tion every two years.
If a chimney fire does occur,
call the fire department immedi-
ately and get everyone out of the
house. You can try to put a small
fire out yourself, but it is best to
leave it to the firefighters. If you
do try to put it out on your own,
however, directing the fire extin-
guisher discharge up the chim-
ney and then closing the damper
can be effective. After a chimney
fire, be sure to have the chimney
or stove inspected for damage
before using it-again.
Any type of heating equipment
can be used safely if you follow
these rules and recommenda-
tions from NFPA:
When buying a new unit,
make sure that a qualified tech-
niciai installs it or checks it to
see that it has been installed

Christmas Tree Fires
Christmas trees were the
items first ignited in an estimat-
ed average of 310 reported U.S
home structure fires per year in
1999-2002. These fires caused
an average of 14 civilian deaths,
40 civilian injuries, and $16.2
million in direct property damage
per year. These statistics include
both real and artificial trees.
When decorating Christmas
trees, always use safe tree lights.
(Some lights are designed only
for indoor or outdoor use, but not
both.) Larger tree lights should
also have some type of reflector
rather than a bare bulb and all
lights should be listed by a test-
