CRIME ON CAMPUS
Altha residents outraged
after vandals deface school
BY KELLI PEACOCK
Altha residents are in an
uproar after vandals spray
painted Blountstown High slo-
gans around their campus
early this week.
Students and teachers
arrived to school Tuesday
morning to find "Tiger Pride"
messages painted in red on the
two front signs, as well as a set
of classroom windows. On the
main sign in front of the cam-
pus,. the word "Altha" was
crossed out and replaced with
Altha mayor David
Culpepper was outraged over
the vandalism and says the
community shares his senti-
ments. "I have been bombarded
this morning by irate citizens,"
he tells The County Record. "It
looks like a political statement
Mayor Culpepper said some
of the graffiti depicted a door
with locks, which he believes
refers to the recent debate over
closing Altha High School and
consolidating with BHS in a
new countywide high school.
"There's a fine line between
outright thuggery and that's
what this has crossed to," he
remarked. "You can stand up
and speak your mind in a polit-
ical forum, but when you
deface school property, that's
crossing the line. It's one thing
to have pride, but it's another
thing to step over the line and

Plans for a plain cinderblock
building for the new
Blountstown Police Department
have been nixed after City
Council members voted to pur-
sue a more "Main Street" friend-
Former State Representative
Robert Trammell and his broth-
er, Park, both Blountstowrt
natives, addressed the City
Council at their regular meeting
last Tuesday night and urged
them to join Wakulla Bank in
creating a nostalgic ambiance
'"This is a great opportunity,'
Robert Trammell told the coun-
cil, pointing out that Walter
Dodson, President of Wakulla
Bank, has already agreed to fol-
low the Blountstown Main Street
design recommendations on
their new building to help revi-
talize downtown. With the new
police station at the corner of
State Roads 20 and 71, he
emphasized how important the
image of the building would be to
the downtown effort.
Both Robert and Park, as well
as their brother, Jeff, a lobbyist
in Washington, D.C., committed
to volunteer their services to help
locate resources for the design
process. "I don't know what is
available, but we'd be more than
willing to research and find out,"
Robert said he felt the archi-
tectural elements of the old
courthouse would be well suited
for the new buildings downtown.
Park presented a calendar that is
circulated around Florida each
year, featuring different court-
houses across the state. He
pointed out that, in the 2006 edi-
tion, the old Calhoun County
Courthouse is featured.
After discussion, Police Chief
Glenn Kimbrel advised he had no
problem waiting another 30 to
60 days to develop a new design
for the building, provided the
resources are available.
City Council members also
agreed that putting the project
on hold was necessary.
Blountstown Main Street,
under the direction of President
Tony Shoemake, will be assist-
ing in the design process. If
you'd like to get involved in the
downtown revitalization effort

WILDCATS CHOMP ON
Altha, January 10 The Altha
Wildcats were cooking last
Tuesday night in "The Den." The
main course was gators-that is,
the Wewahitchka Gators. It left a
sweet taste in their mouth to
take down Gators, 41-31, as they
were the first team to end the
Cats' 8-game winning streak.
Although Wewa took a 9-4 first
quarter lead, the Cats heated up
in the second period with taking
a 22-11 lead into the locker
room. Altha added 7 points in
the third quarter while Wewa
posted 11 points. The Cats fin-
ished off the Gators with a 12 to
9 run in the final stanza.
In the field goal department
the Cats edged the Gators, 70%
(13 out of 18 attempts) to 69%
(11 out of 16 attempts). At the
charity stripe Altha made only
25% (6 out of 24 attempts) but
Wewa didn't fair much better
making only 27% (6 out of 22
Josh McIntosh was the Top
Cat in scoring knocking down 15
points along with 2 rebounds
and 2 steals. Nic Chamberlain
pumped in 7 points, including 3
for 3 from the field. Also,
Chamberlain cleared 3 boards,
blocked 2 shots and he had a
steal. Ethan Byler added 6
points. Corde Beauchamp con-
tributed 5 points. Both Juan
Alejos and Andrew Brazell had 4
points. Brazell did some major
glass cleaning with 6 rebounds
and he had a steal.
With the win the Wildcats now
have a 9-2 record on the season.
CATS GIVE DOGS IRON
Altha, January 12 Iron is a
natural element that is good for
healthy body development. Iron
is never good when you hit it in a
basketball game trying to make
the game-tying or winning shot.
The Liberty County Bulldogs
found that to be true last
Thursday night. With Altha tak-
ing a 32-29 lead and about 10
seconds to go, the Bulldogs took
the ball down the court and
.attempted a 3-point shot drawing
.nothL.ng biu .rn. They rebound-
ed the ball kicked it out to
attempt another 3-pointer but
with the same results. The Cats'
Andrew Brazell grabbed the
rebound with four tenths of a
second left to secure the 32-29
victory and raise Altha's season
record to 10-2.
Both teams were red hot from
the field. Liberty County shot
83% (10 out of 12 attempts)
while Altha found net with 80%
(12 out of 15 attempts). In the
free throw department the
Wildcats had the upper hand,
sinking (5 out of 8 attempts)
while the Bulldogs could only
muster 47% (8 out of 17
attempts). Altha's Corde
Beauchamp found money with
one of the Cats 3-point attempts
(33%) while Liberty County had a
zero balance with their 3
The Cats committed 10
turnovers to the Bulldogs' 22.
Josh McIntosh was the Top
Cat in scoring with 8 points
along with 2 rebounds and 2
steals. Corde Beauchamp was
good for 7 points and he had 2
steals. Andrew Brazell con-
tributed 5 points, a rebound, and
he picked a Bulldog's pocket.
Both Ethan Byler and Nic
Chamberlain chalked up 4 points
each. Byler was credited with 3
rebounds while Chamberlain had
a steal. Both Ethan Ellis and
Josh Warner chipped in a field
WILDCATS MAUL INDIANS
Altha, January 13 General
Custer had a better chance than
the Grand Ridge Indians did last
Friday night. The Wildcats
opened up a can of ol' fashioned
whuppin' on the Indians, 40-13,
in "The Den."
With a suffocating defense the
Cats held the Indians scoreless
in the first quarter while ringing
up 10 points themselves. It did-
n't look any better for Grand
Ridge at halftime as Altha's lead
ballooned to 26-4. The Cats'
bench contributed to a 10-4 run
in the third period. In the fourth
quarter, Coach Sidney Granger
lifted most'of his starters to let
the rest of the Cats enjoy some
The Wildcats played string
music with 17 out of 24 field goal
attempts (71%) while the Indians
shot made only 4 out of 8
attempts (50%). Altha only
made a meager 30% (3 out of 10
attempts) of their free throws
while Grand Ridge made 50% (5
out of 10 attempts) of theirs.
Josh McIntosh knocked down
one of the Cats two 3-point
attempts. The Indians missed on
all three attempts.
The Wildcats forced the
Indians into turning the ball over
15 times while committing only 8
Josh McIntosh was the Top
Cat in scoring with 11 points
along with 2 rebounds and 5
steals. Corde Beauchamp
racked up 10 points. Juan
Alejos pumped in 6 points and he
had a steal. Ethan Byler added 3
points along with 2 rebounds
and a steal. Each of the following
Cats chipped in a field goal
apiece: Andrew Brazell, Nic
Chamberlain, Gary Chew, Ethan
Ellis, and Josh Warner. Brazell
had a blocked shot and a
rebound. Chamberlain was
credited with a rebound. Chew
had a rebound and Warner had
both a rebound and a steal.
Tony Golden put in a great defen-
sive effort with a defensive
rebound and 3 steals.

move to 11-2 on the season.

Tigers fall to Sneads and Chipley
Take on PSJ Thursday
BY COACH ANDREW SUMNER
The Tigers were beaten twice
this week by two very good teams
in Sneads and Chipley.
The Pirates of Sneads came to
town on Friday and burned the
nets up against the Tigers.
Sneads didn't miss very many
shots against the Tigers and the
Tigers couldn't keep up with
them in the first half. The score
at half was 45-28. There is not
much you can say to the kids at

BHS Principal Keith Summers
tells The County Record four
applicants will be interviewed on
Thursday. They include:
Greg Jordan, former BHS

baseball coach who currently
serves as head football coach and

a Todd Wertenberger, former
BHS head football coach and
athletic director who currently
serves as an assistant football
coach at Marianna High.

half because not many teams
could have stayed with Sneads
the way they shot the ball.
The leading scorers for the
Tigers were T.J. Simmons with
16 points and Joseph Warren
with 15 points. Ricky Sable and
Michael Guilford brought in 10
points a piece. Ken Grant added
six points. The final score was 80

The Chipley Tigers paid a visit
to Blountstown and barely
escaped with a win by the score

tant coach at Terry Parker High
School in Jacksonville.

Leading scorers for the Tigers
were T.J. Simmons with 11
points, Joseph Warren and Ken
Grant with 10 a piece, and Jason
Byrd with nine.
It was the case of the Tigers
not hitting some crucial free-
throws down the stretch that
kept us from getting a win. I
thought Michael Guilford came
in and ran the offense more to
the style that prepared us to win.

GA boy bags Florida's
10th highest scoring deer
Cody Thomas of Savannah,
Ga. had no idea he would be har-
vesting Florida's 10th-highest-
scoring deer when he accepted
an offer to go hunting with his
girlfriend's brother, but that is
exactly what happened.
Thomas took the trophy buck
Nov. 20 on private land in Leon
County at the beginning of the
general gun season. -He then
anxiously awaited the official
score of the buck's antlers to
come back from the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) to learn how
his deer would stack-up against
the biggest deer ever taken in the
state as listed in the Florida
Thomas was invited to
Monticello, Fla. for a weekend of
deer hunting by Brad Benners of
Tallahassee. Benners, who is
listed twice in last year's Florida
Buck Registry for taking two
monster deer off the property the
year before, knows the tract has
superb genetics and offered his
sister's boyfriend a great oppor-
tunity to take his first quality
The previous weekend,
Benners set Thomas up in a box
stand, overlooking a one-acre
field planted in oats, where
'Thomas took his first buck ever -
Sa nice nine-point. Then, on that
memorable afternoon, Thomas
was 'again sitting in the same
stand where he contemplated
harvesting another huge deer
that had appeared around 5:15
p.m. With the use of a two-way
radio, Thomas described to
Benners the 10-point buck he
was looking at, and Benners
said, "It's still early," and sug-
gested he wait and see, if some-
thing bigger came out.
Just a half-hour later, around
5:45 p.m., Thomas' trophy deer
stepped into the field. With just
one shot, Thomas had his sec-
ond deer within a week, second
buck; of his lifetime and the sec-
ond-best deer on record ever to
come out of Leon County. The
235-pound deer even dwarfed
the 215-pound Thomas, a foot-
ball player at Valdosta State
University. The deer's antlers
had 13 scorable points with the
inside spread measuring 19.5
Don Francis, FWC biologist at
Joe Budd Wildlife Management
Area took the official measure-
ments and gave the deer a gross
Boone and Crockett score of 165
4/8 and a net score of 154 6/8.
The net score earns Thomas a tie
for the state's 10th highest-scor-
ing, typical white-tailed deer on
record. Jesse Roberts, who took
a 12-pointer from Jefferson
County in 2002, shares that
So far, Thomas' buck is the
front-runner for this hunting
season's highest-scoring deer.
Needless to say, Thomas enjoyed
a great Thanksgiving as his
finest Christmas present ever,
Dr. Robert Vanderhoof, biolo-
gist and leader of the FWC's Deer
Management Program, said the
northern-tier counties like Leon
produce the majority of Florida's
"It starts with the' soil,"
Vanderhoof said. "Many of
Florida's northern counties
share the same fertile clay soils
found throughout Alabama and
These fertile soils produce
more nutritious deer forage than
the sandier soils of central and
"The second factor,"
Vanderhoof said, "is abundant
and consistent rainfall. North
Florida's average annual rainfall
is significantly higher and more
evenly distributed throughout
the year than in the rest of the
Consistent rainfall generates a
better food supply than in areas
where prolonged dry spells are
The minimum antler score eli-
gible for Florida's Buck Registry
is 100 Boone and Crockett
points for typical antlers and 125
for non-typical. Hunters who
may have harvested such a deer

Please Mind the Gap
After more than seven hours
on a plane we finally arrived on
December 27. You might be ask-
ing yourself, "Who is we?" and
"Where did you go?" The answer
is quite simple. We were Patricia
Williams and Brandon Dysard
and we had taken a trip to
The overall plan for this trip
was to march in the New Year's
Day parade, "the most spectacu-
lar two mile stretch" ever. What
we got was far more.
What we got was 400 plus
girls and a total of 770 people.
We got an individual group of 15
rambunctious teens from
Alabama, Georgia, Florida,
Tennessee, Indiana, New York,
and South Carolina.
On the first day, we took a trip
on the tube, also known as the
subway, and did a little sightsee-
ing. Here we got our first
encounter with our favorite
phrase, "Please mind the gap" (in
America it would mean to watch
out for the space between the
subway and the platform). We
also visited the very first Hard
Rock Cafe'. While we enjoyed our
time there we became acquainted
with the fact that things were
much more expensive than we
were accustomed to. Who knew
a BBQ sandwich would cost
twelve American dollars?! While
visiting the Hard Rock, we visited
"the vault". What and amazing
place that was. There was rock
and' roll memorabilia for every
generation, from Bo Diddly to

In 1991, a melting glacier in the
Italian Tyrol near the Austrian border
exposed the bod of a man that the.
glacier had trapped and covered over
4,000 years ago.
Archaeologists proclaimed that
the discovery of the "ice man" was
among the most important finds of
recent history. Yet, when one consid-
ers that this "ice man" lived around
the same time as Abraham of the Old
Testament, the ice man doesn't seem
so primitive or' distant.
A lot of people marvel at how over-
whelmed we are at the intervals of
time we call centuries. The awe with
which we view the artifacts from an
ancient time, only emphasizes our
own individual swiftly moving exis-
tence. A lot of people also marvel at
how underwhelmed we are when we
consider the immeasurable greatness
of God's eternal .existence and ddmin-
Betv.ween the moment the ice uihn'm
drew his last breath and the breath I
take at this minute, thousands of
kings and kingdoms have come into
existence, prospered, and fallen
away.' How can I comprehend that
only one Kingdom has prevailed
against the onslaught of time, and
that the one Ruler of that Kingdom
takes a personal interest in me, in
each one of us.
Jesus' Kingdom is the only
Kingdom that is eternal; that will last
forever. The question is, are we mem-
bers of that Kingdom? We can be!

DOH: January is Cervical
Cancer Awareness Month
The front sign at Altha School has been defaced with red spray paint.
The Florida Department of
Health (DOH) and the American
Cancer Society combine efforts to
raise awareness about cervical
health throughout the month of
Regular check-ups may
reduce the risk of cervical cancer
later in life since it is highly cur-
able if caught early.
"Cervical Health Awareness
Month is not simply about statis-
tics. It is. about encouraging
women to be responsible for their
health and to visit their doctors
regularly," said DOH Secretary
M. Rony Frangois, M.D.,
M.S.P.H., Ph.D. "We are proud to
have initiatives such as the
Department's Florida Breast and
Cervical Cancer Program that
helps older, uninsured, or poor
women maintain cervical health."
The Breast and Cervical
Cancer Program began in 1994
and has helped over 27,000
women receive Pap tests. The
U.S. Preventive Services Task
Force recommends that women
begin having regular Pap tests
and pelvic exams at age 21, or
within three years of the first
time they have sexual inter-
course. Important facts about
cervical cancer include:
SV Any woman who has a
cervix can get cervical cancer,
especially if she or her sexual
partner has had multiple sex
V Most often, cervical cancer
develops in women 40 or older.
V Abnormal cells in the cervix
and cervical cancer don't always
cause symptoms, especially at
first. That's why getting tested for
cervical cancer is important,
even if there are no symptoms.
One of the front windows at Altha School was also spray painted by
vandals sometime Monday night or early Tuesday.

The second day in London was
jam packed. We left the hotel at
S8:30 a.m. for a day of adventure.
We were on a "coach" bus tour
and saw Buckingham Palace,
Westminster Abbey, the Houses
of Parliament, and much more.
The group even made a trip to
Covent Gardens to do, some
The highlight for the day, how-
ever, was most definitely the visit
to St. Paul's Cathedral. At the
beautiful cathedral we braved
the stairs and made the trip to
the Golden Gallery, at the very
top, 280 feet above the, ground
which was 530 steps from
ground-level. This was the most
beautiful view *of all and you
could see all of London just as
the sun began to set.
The group also visited the
crypt, which had many famous
bodies, including the architect in
charge of the construction of St.
Paul's, Christopher Wren. After
such a busy day the entire group
was off to a marvelous musical
production. The musical was
'We Will Rock You", with music
by Queen. This was a truly fab-
ulous show and was surely
enjoyed by all.
The third day was a free day
for everyone and the group visit-
ed the Tower of London, and was
treated to a delightful look at the
Crown Jewels in all their splen-
dor. We also discovered the
Bloody Tower where a few
princes were believed to have
been murdered. We also went to
Picadilly Circus and did some
much needed shopping, and
ended up not quite lost in Oxford
Circus. The day was full of
excitement and so was the night,
as the group embarked on a
Disco Cruise. The cruise was a
three hour long excursion to get
the kids to really interact and
enjoy their time with each other.
The fourth, long awaited, day
included a. trip to Windsor
Castle, an official residence of
the royal family.' The castle was
beautiful and we even got to see
Queen Mary's doll house, along
with many other treasures the
town of Windsor had to offer us.
Saturday, the fifth day, the
group was treated to a free day
and a New Year's Eve party that
night. The party was surely a
-highlight and also happened to

Blaze at Lockwood Avenue home
The Blountstown,Fire Department responded to a structure fire at
20896 SE Lockwood Avenue Monday at 1:03 a.m. Upon their arrival,
they found the rear portion of the wood frame structure fully involved
and an add on bedroom collapsed. There were initial reports that the
occupants might still be inside. Thankfully, no one was at home at the
time of the blaze. Firefighters quickly doused the flames and were able
to leave the front three quarters of the structure standing. The house
was occupied by Cassie Personnette and her daughter, Yinara, who
rented the house from Hamilton Baker. Unfortunately all of the occu-
pants' belongings were burned or heavily smoke damaged. The fire is
being investigated by Det. Brian Findley of the State Fire Marshall's
Office and has been preliminarily ruled unintentional.
