VOTE IN HONOR OF A VETERAN



Local Elections Office creates



wall of honor for veterans


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
The Calhoun County
Supervisor of Elections Office
is providing a perfect way to
salute those who have served
our country through a new pro-
gram known as Vote in Honor of
a Veteran.
Elections Supervisor Margie
Laramore and her assistants,
Melanie Aycock and Angie
Senterfitt, have been collecting
photos of veterans from local
residents, along with any sto-
ries they'd like to share about
their loved one's time of serv-
ice. The photos are enlarged
with a patriotic border, indicat-
ing the branch of service and
other details, then displayed
along the wall outside the
Elections Office. Stories about
each soldier's time in the mili-
tary are kept in a binder in the
Elections Office for visitors to
peruse.
"This is very personal to all
of us," Laramore tells The"
County Record. "We are hon-
ored to be able to do this for all
our service personnel."

U.S. Senator Bill Nelson
made a stop in Calhoun
County Friday afternoon and
hosted a town forum at The
Callahan Restaurant in
Blountstown.
"I'm conducting meetings
around the state and want to
know how I can help you and
what I can take back to
Washington," he told the
crowd of around 20 elected
officials and citizens.
The County Record ques-
tioned Sen. Nelson about his
thoughts on a barge trans-
porting nuclear waste along
the river this week, as well as
his stance on the dredging
issue. "I'll be checking on that
barge," he remarked. "That's


the kind of stuff we don't
want on this river. Since Bob
Graham has retired, I feel like
it's my job to take up the
dredging issue. We've been
continually fought by Georgia
legislators who want to keep
up the dredging...I don't
think it's worth the trade off.
If you don't have the traffic, I
don't think you can justify
spending the money for
dredging."
Calhoun County School
Superintendent Mary Sue
Neves told Sen. Nelson she
was concerned about some of
the school mandates, such as
the No Child Left Behind Act.
"The purpose of the act is
having accountability in the
school system...but there are

News Editor
A Blountstown woman was
arrested last week after reported-
ly confessing to having sex with
a 15-year-old exchange student
in her care.
Kim Owings, 44, was charged
with three counts of sexual bat-
tery in the case.
According to the Calhoun
County Sheriffs Office, Lt. Ken
Futch was contacted Jan. 4 by
Assistant State Attorney David
House who asked him to respond
to his office. Upon arrival, he met
with House and Owings' hus-
band, Keith, who had stepped
forward to report the incidents
involving his wife and the boy.
Owings reportedly stated he
became suspicious of inappro-
priate activity between the teen
and another juvenile back in
November. He said his concerns
escalated when he discovered

The Calhoun-Liberty Hospital
Foundation will officially be
operating the facility by week's
end.
"Our license will be effective
Friday afternoon at 3:30 and the
hospital board is running it,"
Marilyn.Russell, a member of the
the hospital foundation, tells The
County Record. "We want to get
the word out that it's a commu-

and we want to run it."
The foundation stepped in last
month after DasSee, the compa-
ny leasing the hospital, was
unable to meet payroll or make
their utility payment.
As for how they will fund the
facility, foundation members
report they are reviewing a vari-

Sen. Nelson forum


Dear Editor:
* We need your help to prevent
birth defects and improve the
health of America's families.
Numerous scientific studies
have shown the importance of
folic acid in helping to prevent
neural tube defects, serious birth
defects of the birth and spine, as
well as other diseases. However,
over half of all American adults
are still not getting enough folic
acid on a daily basis.
To help ensure that everyone
understands the importance of
folic acid, Chipola Healthy Start
Marianna, FL is joining with the
National Council of Folic Acid
(NCFA) in conducting National
Folic Acid Awareness Week,
which runs January 9-15, 2006.
The campaign, entitled, "Folic
Acid: You Don't Know what
You're Missing!," was created to
educate about the many lifelong
benefits of folic acid.
Folic acid is a B-vitamin nec-
essary for proper cell growth. The'
U.S, Public Health Service rec-
ommends that all women of
childbearing age consume 400
micrograms of folic acid by tak-
ing a daily multivitamin and eat-
ing fortified grains in addition to
a variety. of foods as part of a
healthy diet. In particular,
women of childbearing age
should take folic acid to help pre-
vent a pregnancy affected by a
neural tube birth defect (NTD).
Research has shown that if ade-
quate amounts of folic acid are
consumed before pregnancy, up
to 70 percent of neural tube
defect's can be prevented.
Considering that half of all preg-
nancies are unplanned, it is
especially important that all
women of childbearing age take
f6lic acid daily to help prevent
NTDs even before they are
thinking of becoming pregnant.
A child born with a birth defect
such as spina bifida will face a
life of challenges as a disabled
individual. Children with anen-


cephaly, another NTD
be prevented by adeq
sumption of folic ac
pregnancy die during
days of life.
In addition to helpir
NTDs, emerging rese

Altha citizens rally


to save local school


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Around 100 Altha area resi-
dents gathered at the Altha
Community Center Monday
night to talk strategy as they pre-
pare- to fight the possible consol-
dation of Altha and Blountstown
scholIs.
After a six month series of
public meetings on the state of
local school facilities, School
Board members have discussed
the possibility of building a new
countywide high school and mov-
ing the middle school students
fronimBlountstown and Altha into
the existing Blountstown High

to leave up as long as we're
allowed to," Laramore remarks.
"It's not something up for a holi-
day it's a permanent fixture and
an ongoing project." She adds
that, once the hallway in the
basement is filled, she hopes to
see the photos spread through-
out the courthouse.
When election day rolls
around, those who have chosen
to recognize a veteran will be vot-
ing in their honor. "When they
vote,' we'll give them a sticker
with the veteran's name on it,"
says Laramore, noting, "It's not
voting for them, it's voting in
honor of them."
For more information, contact
the Elections Office at 674-8568.


School buildingL Should the new
countywide facilities be approved
by the state legislature, as a con-
sultant to the board has predict-
ed, the county would be required
to levy an additional two mills
toward the project for three
years, with the state picking up
the rest of the tab in the multi-
millions.
Altha Mayor David Culpepper
led Monday night's meeting and
stated, "Consolidation pretty
much means the death of Altha
High School.' This school was
started by our 'ancestors 100
years ago in a little one room
cabin before there ever was a
School Board. We ran our school
ourselves. If we want something
bad enough, we can raise enough
of a stink to keep our school, but
we need everybody's help."
Longtime Altha Mayor Drew
Peacock, Jr. said he is also
opposed to consolidating. "It has
not been proven that larger is
better," he remarked. "We're
going to have to bus everybody
that goes to school. People that
bring their kids to Altha trade
there. If we're going to have a
school out in the boondocks,
we're going to destroy our coun-
ty."
County Commissioner Earl
Hunt, who represents the Altha
district, said he'd like to see the
measure put on the ballot. "Let
the citizens vote for it," he stated.
"We need to let the people speak
for us."


Above, Sen. Bill Nelson speaks with local elected officials and community members at a town forum held
Friday at The Callahan Restaurant in Blountstown. A variety of issues were discussed, ranging from dredg-
ing on the Apalachicola River to education.

Three fires in city



over past four days


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Blountstown firefighters have
been busy over the past week,
responding to a trio of fires in a
four-day period.
According to Blountstown Fire
Chief Ben Hall, the first blaze
occurred Saturday at 1:44 a.m.
when Esther Gammon, who
resides at 16098 SE Martin
Street, was ,awakened ,by
extreme heat and opened her
eyes to see flames above her
head. "We' contained the fire
damage to the bedroom," Chief
Hall reports. "There was smoke
arid moderate" heat' damage
throughout the structure. The
cause is believed to be electrical."
The next call came just after 8
a.m. Sunday when firefighters
were summoned to a home at
20492 NE Marie Avenue. "A
neighbor spotted smoke coming
from the roof of a house," says
Chief Hall. "An electrical short in

line of credit from Calhoun and
Liberty Commissions. According
to the hospital foundation's
attorney, David House, both
counties are still researching
how they might assist.
"The foundation has some
money and we're talking with
creditors and trying to work
through some of those issues,"
House remarks. "We can't say
we're assuming all of DasSee's
obligations, but creditors want
their money, too. We're trying to
work through it."
David Berk, an expert in rural
hospitals and health care, has
been assisting the foundation
through the process of assuming
the hospital. "He has been down
here for two weeks," says House.
"He has done an audit and deter-
mined that the hospital is a
viable entity and it makes sound
business sense for the founda-
tion to take it back over. We
would not have done it without
him. As such, he has agreed to
continue on in an advisory
capacity as long as we need him.

ing how to bill. That's the key to
this and that's what he's good

From your family!!


BIRTHDAYS


A celebration is planned in
Blountstown, Monday, January
16, in honor of the late Dr.
Martin Luther King, Jr.'s 80th
birthday.
The parade procession will
line-up at City Hall promptly at 9
a.m. and march to St. Mary's
Missionary Baptist Church,
located at 16345 SE River Street.
A program will be held at the
church celebrating the legacy of
Dr. King.
When was the last time your
right to vote was denied? When
was the last time your voice as
an African American was smoth-
ered? When was the last time
your right to worship your
Supreme Being was challenged?
In times of trouble, and troubling
times, we should all know that
within this great nation, we are a
special people who are truly
blessed.
Once again, it is time to rejoice
by celebration and remembrance


of the stand that Dr. King took
against the injustices, and his
fight for freedom, equality, and
dignity for all races, creeds, and
colors. For the rich, and for the
poor! For the successful and the
not so successful! For the
oppressed, and the oppressor
alike! Dr. Martin Luther King had
a dream. And through the cele-
bration of time, Dr. King's dream
lives on. It is stronger today than
it was yesterday, and tomorrow it
will be even stronger.
So bring your prayers, voices,
bicycles, scooters, 40-plus and
all, and know that one day will
come our relief. Come big, come
little, come round or come thin,
cause today is the day to thank
Martin again!
For preparations and more
information, contact Deborah
Yon Hammond or Dr. 'C.L.
Wilson, Pastor.
Remember! Celebrate! Act! A
day on, not a day off!

Arrow of
Truth
by Rev. R. W Waterman .

Use Your Wits
Acts 23:16-17
Dennis Apple once said: "I always
liked the TV show "Mac Gyver." The man
never carried a gun but was smart
enough to find a way out of every threat-
ening situation. Mac could be locked in
an abandoned warehouse with the threat
of a bomb going off and destroying him.
However, in the nick of time he could use
a toothpick and a shoelace to dismantle
the bomb, pick the lock on the door, and
capture his enemies.
Life can be terrible, troublesome, and
threatening for all of us: broken relation-
ships, divorce. ,death phone calls with'
ba news. iarebreal warranty, lab reports of cancer; heart
trouble comes to light, unemployment,
bankruptcy, and natural disasters, all can
bring paralysis and fear. However, God
has given us sound minds to take positive
steps in times of trouble. As we pray we
are directed to resources found in our
church and community to help us to over-
come.
Do you feel trapped and in trouble in
some way? Look around you, use what
is at hand: your Bible, a good book, the
support group at church or in your com-
munity, a trusted friend, the counsel of y
-our pastor. God has a way of getting us
through the dark places if we will only use
what is at hand and trust Him completely.

The United States Department
of Agriculture (USDA)-Natural
Resources Conservation Service
(NRCS) entered into cooperative
agreements with Calhoun,
Liberty, Gulf, & Franklin County
Commissioners to restore and
protect storm damaged roads in
the local area, through the
Emergency Watershed Program
(EWP).
Over the past 12 years, NRCS
has obligated approximately $12
million of EWP funds, to stabilize
erosion on local roads in
Calhoun, Liberty, Gulf, &
Franklin Counties. NRCS pro-
vides cost-share funding, to the
local governments (county/city),
through the USDA-NRCS
Emergency Watershed Program.
To be eligible for EWP, erosion on
local roads must be linked to a
storm event (such as a tropical
storm, hurricane, flood, or torna-
do). Local governments, such as
your Board of County
Commissioners, submit sites to
the NRCS office in Blountstown.
Sites are evaluated. If EWP
funds are available and sites are
eligible, then they are funded at
75% Federal cost-share. The
local government or county is
responsible for the, remaining
25% of the construction cost.
NRCS allows the county to pro-
vide in-kind services (in the form
of engineering, contracting,
administration, hauling dirt and
debris, and traffic control) to
meet the local obligation.
Twelve EWP sites, from
Hurricane Ivan, have recently
been completed in Calhoun
County (NRCS funding
$3,820,000), and two sites in
Liberty County (NRCS funding
$368,660). Completed EWP sites

and Stafford Creek. Completed
EWP sites in Liberty County
include County Road 67/Fox
Creek and County Road
12/Rowlett Creek.
Typically, EWP sites are locat-
ed on local roads where they
cross creeks & ditches. This year
one EWP site included the
removal of tornado debris from
Stafford Creek. The debris was
removed to reduce the threat of
flooding to local homes, and
restore the natural flow of the
watershed (site located on hwy.
69, north of Blountstown).
Twelve additional EWP sites in
Calhoun County (NRCS funding
$1,240,000) and 4 EWP sites in
Gulf County (NRCS funding
$895,000) will soon be under
construction from the March
31st Storm. Approved sites in
Calhoun County are CR 274
West (3 sites), Bailey Cemetery
Rd., Shuman Ferry Rd., Alfred
Sheldon Rd., Felix Flanders Rd.,

Local kids learn the right way to ride at...


4-H ATV Safety


Day Camp


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
For many kids in the country,
their first bike often gets kicked
to the curb and replaced by a
faster, more powerful ride com-
monly called a four wheeler.
These all-terrain vehicles
(ATVs) offer tons of fun, providing
afternoons of splashing through
mudholes and winding along for-
est trails. However, when used
recklessly, a four wheeler
becomes dangerous and even
deadly.
Just ask 12-year-old Tiffany
Ballard, a Blountstown Middle
School student who learned the
hard way as a small child that
ATVs can be unsafe. "I was about
four years old and I had just got-
ten this new four wheeler," she
recalled. "I didn't know how to
stop and I ran into my trampo-
line and it knocked me off."
Eight years later, she still has-
n't forgotten that scary ride.
Ballard was among 20 area
youngsters who attended the 4-H
ATV Safety Day Camp held last

Wednesday at the W.T. Neal Civic
Center. "I'm learning the basic
ways of riding," she remarked a
couple hours into the morning
session.
Teaching children the correct
way to ride was the goal of the
camp and, for a $10 registration
fee, participants took home a hel-
met valued around $150, along
with a safety manual and com-
pass. The camp was co-spon-
sored by Calhoun, Liberty, and
Jackson County 4-H and led by
Jessica Bowden, Monica
Brinkley, Cathia Schmarje and
Heather Kent.
Teen assistants at the camp
included Christina Shuler and
Haley Walker, both of Bristol.
Shuler had her own bad experi-
ence on a four-wheeler, making
her even more passionate about
educating others on what not to
do. "Do not ride double! I was rid-

last semester, We're very proud of

ing double and flipped," she stat-
ed, adding she was fortunate to
only sustain a bruised hip.
Ten-year-old Deacon Smith of
Marianna said the lessons he
learned at the ATV camp also
apply to riding go-carts. "I've
wrecked on my go-cart," he
shared. "I flipped it over on it's
side and tore up my hand. I've
learned that you don't drive more
people than are meant to be on it
and don't drive too fast."
Volunteers Shanna Price and
Bryson Wood modeled the head
to toe safety gear that should be
worn when riding a four wheeler.
The gear includes a helmet, gog-
gles, chest protector, gloves, off-
road pants, and boots. According
to the safety guide students
received, helmets protect your
head in two ways: the outer shell
resists penetration and abrasion,
and the inner liner absorbs
shock by slowly collapsing under
impact. However, once a helmet
has been damaged in a crash,
even just a crack, it is extremely
important to replace it since it
will be of little protective value in
another mishap. Riders who
don't have off-road pants should
always wear long pants, prefer-
ably a thick pair of jeans, to pro-
tect their skin.
Another critical factor in ATV
safety is not riding a four wheel-
er that's too big for you. Safety
officials emphasize that children
under 16 should not be riding
adult size machines. Kids six
years and under should stick to
ATVs with an engine size under
70 ccs. Those between ages 12 to
15 should not ride anything over
90 ccs: Anything with more
power should be reserved for
those 16 and older.
The event was arranged by the
National 4-H Council and funded
by Honda. Local 4-H agents
extend their appreciation to Don
Hand of Hand Enterprises for
supplying the helmets at a dis-
count and providing four wheel-
ers for the camp.
