DOWNTOWN REVITALIZA11ON



Main Street following


'four point

BY KELLF PEACOCK
News Editor
Following a four point approach to downtown revital-
ization was the topic of the Blountstown Main Street
meeting Monday.
Philip and Angle Hill reported on a quarterly meeting
they recently attended in South Florida on behalf of the
local Main Street committee. Angle explained that' Main
Street's four point approach focuses on design, organiza-
tion, promotion, and economic restructuring.
"They did a slide show [at the quarterly meeting] and
the first photo was of Blountstown," Philip stated, adding
that "the pictures were bad."
The Hills said a representative from Delray Beach's
Main Street program had several suggestions for attract-
ing shoppers downtown. "Delray had old buildings that
were falling down and they had no money," Philip
remarked. "They held a promotion every weekend to bring
people into downtown Delray. They had festivals and art
shows. They parked people on one side so they had to
walk down the street to get to the event. It's very impor-
tant to funnel people where we want them to go."
The Hills stated they were strongly urged by other


Main Street representatives to pursue a Community
Redevelopment Agency designation in order to receive
more funding.
Also discussed was the need for an overlay committee
to create a unified look downtown. 'They could not stress
more to be honest with existing businesses [about their
appearance] and to be loyal to them," Philip emphasized.
Main Street Chairman Tony Shoemake is currently
researching overlay design ideas. Main Street meets the
first Monday at noon at the Extension Office. Anyone
interested is urged to attend.

HOSPITAL ISSUES

Commission

contributes

$350,000

to hospital
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Progress continues to be
made at the once struggling
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital.
Since members of the
hospital's foundation
assumed control of the facil-
ity two months ago from
DasSee, the company that
had been leasing the hospi-
tal, they have received com-
mitments for close to $1 mil-
lion from local government
entities to keep it operating.
Laddie Williams, chair-
man of the foundation, tells
The County Record he had
hoped to raise between $1.5
to $2 million to get the facil-
ity back on it's feet. "We're
going to be real close," he
remarks.
At their last board meet-
ing, Calhoun County
Commissioners voted to con-
tribute $350,000 to the hos-
pital. "They voted unani-
mously," Williams points
out. "We are very thankful."
In addition, Blountstown
City Council members have

Letter to the Editor,
My community, I thank
you.
When my house burned
up and everything in it I was
sure the devil had done me
in.
My eyeglasses burned up
and I can't read anything
without them so Dr. Barry
Edewaard saved that to the
tune of $270.00. My medi-
cine that had just been
refilled for the month at the
tune of $1,025.00 burned up
too. The state refused to help
me because I couldn't qualify
without lying. Rev. Cecil
Wilson and St. Mary and my
church family took care of
that. I had no clothes and I
love to look decent when I am
going to church. Mr. and
Robert Lee Session brought
me clothes, also Mrs. Mary
Lee Mosley. Mrs. Gladys
Miller made sure I didn't get
cold by the lovely coat she
gave me. I thank you.
New Hope Baptist Church,
Mrs. Helen Marlowe, Rev.
McGriff made sure I had
funds for personal needed
things. I thank you.
Mr. Wilmon Monlyn, Mr.
Horace Beckwith, Jr., Mr.
Dexter Thomas, Mrs. Wanda
Long, Crystell Gatlin, and


Mrs. Shirley Holmes aided
me financially.
I am a long way from being
home, but every since the fire
I've had a decent roof over
my head.
So Satan did not do me in.
I haven't been dirty one day
since the fire and I have sat
at tables that were open to
me. Thank you.
To the whole Gatlin family
who helped me in too many
ways to express, I pray God's
richest blessing. To those
who prayed with and for me,
I thank you.
A special thanks to Mrs.
Debbie Hammon and Miss
Glen McKelvin.
I have nothing now and I
don't know when I will be
able to return home, but I am
rich. I have your love, I have
my life.. As long as there are
people like you, we can run
the devil away. I pray God
will bless each of you and you
will continue to pray for me.

With lots of love,
Mrs. Gammon

PS: I didn't mention Big
Mama because she is mama
to me in every way of life, I
got you this time, Dr. Anna
B. Baker.

school districts in the state.
We congratulate the many
people who worked to achieve
such excellent results!

behalf of the hospital.
Coupled with the $800,000

well on their way to getting
the hospital up to par.
Williams reports longtime
hospital administrator Ben

Cochran is serving on a tem-

"The District continues its
efforts to preserve the his-
toric flows and the environ-
mental health of the
Apalachicola River," said
Douglas E. Barr, District
Executive Director. "This
book is one of many publica-
tions the District has pre-
pared to educate the public
about the watershed."
The oral history was com-
piled and edited by
NWFWMD Public Information
Specialist Faith Eidse, with
assistance by District staff in
planning, transcribing,
research, proof reading, map
making and photography.
The book collects 36 oral his-
tories from people who made
their livelihoods along the
river and bay. They narrate
observed changes to the river
system over the last century
when cars, bridges, pave-
ment and electricity brought
more growth than during any
other period in history.


kNISSAN~j


Interviews include sub-
jects from Jackson, Gadsden,
Calhoun, Liberty, Franklin,
Gulf, Leon and Bay counties.
They cover the last steamboat
pilot on the Apalachicola-
Chattahoochee-Flint river
system, sharecroppers who
escaped servitude, turpen-
tine workers in Tate's Hell,
sawyers of old growth
cypress, beekeepers working
the last large tupelo stand,
the first black mayor of
Apalachicola and a Creek
chief descended from a 200-
year unbroken line of chiefs.
As developers increase
pressure and populations
grow within the basin, this
timely collection captures a
fascinating and unique
moment in history, recalling
a resource that once offered
profuse oysters, larger stur-
geon, healthier Torreya trees.
Already six featured subjects
have died, but their stories
live on in this collection.


From emerging technolo-
gies to environmental health,
these 395 pages capture the
battle to preserve and perse-
vere, and are illustrated with
72 photographs and 9 maps.
Habitat maps indicate where
our sensitive species live and
land preservation maps show
how the state of Florida is
trying to protect them. The
book has been called "an elo-
quent memory of an entity
that cannot speak for itself."
One of the main resources
of water not only for Florida,
but also for Alabama arid
Georgia, the Apalachicola
River begins where the
Chattahoochee and Flint
Rivers meet at Lake Seminole
and flows unimpeded for 106
miles. It slices through the
red hills and floodplains of
the Florida Panhandle, into
Apalachicola Bay and, finally,
to the Gulf of Mexico. Printed
copies of the book are avail-
able from the UPF website.

BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A trip to Bulldog Country
Friday night was a little more
than the Altha Wildcats
expected. In the end, all they
took home was a disappoint-
ing 11-1 loss to LCHS.
"We got pounded!" says
Coach Arthur Faurot.
The only score for Altha
came from Keith Kirkpatrick
in the top of the first inning.
"After that, we fell apart,"
-Coach Faurot remarks. "We
didn't, get but four hits all
night. We left quite a few on
base and couldn't get a hit or
get it on the ground when we
needed to. We missed several
opportunities. We got out-
played and outcoached."
Although his team is
young with seven sopho-
mores in the starting lineup,
Coach Faurot says they are
not reaching their full poten-
tial. "We're better than the
score indicated," he points
out. "We should be playing
better."
The Cats will have a
chance to redeem themselves
against district foe
Blountstown Friday night. at
Tiger field. "Hopefully, we'll
be more prepared and ready
to play than we were against
Bristol," says Coach Faurot,
adding that he'd like to see
the team play with "a little
more passion instead of
being intimidated."
The J.V. Cats will host
Port St. Joe Thursday at 3
p.m. The varsity only game


against Blountstown is set
for Friday night at 5 p.m. For
more information about the
Wildcats, go to www.althaw-

are posted.

Jesus Heals
Luke 7:22
.Johii the'Baptist had been
on a spiritual high. Since the
S day he saw Jesus walking
along the river's edge, bap-
tized him in the Jordan River
and heard the heavenly voice
proclaiming the fact of
Sonship. he had bowed his
head to no man. John was to
,decrease. and Jesus was to
increase in followers. in pop-
ularity. in power. in authori-
tv. even over Caesar. That
was fine with John. After all.
the Messiah had been prom-
ised for many years.
Now John has become
weak and wearily suffering in
prison. He is not afraid of
Herod's threats. But time is
passing by and Jesus has not
revealed Himself as the
Jewish Messiah. So he calls
two of his worried disciples
and sends them forth. Their
job w\as to find Jesus and to
ask Him, "Are you the one?"
The hour is late: John's
cell is very dark. Two weary
men enter John's presence
and give him Jesus' exact
words. "The afflicted are
healed: the poor are hearing
the gospel."
In some unexplainable
way. John knows he has

KEEPING FIREFIGHTERS SAFE: The Blountstown Fire Department
recently received some much needed equipment, courtesy of
the Department of Homeland Safety's Assistance to
Firefighters Grant Program. The total award was $82,000 with
the BFD only required to proved a $4000 match. According to
BFD Chief Ben Hall, the funds enabled them to purchase 10 self
contained breathing apparatus (SCBAs) or "airpaks" which
help firefighters breathe in smoky or hazardous environments.
The airpaks come with an integrated personal alert safety sys-
tem that sounds an alarm if a firefighter is trapped or in trou-
ble. The BFD was also able to purchase two spare air tanks for
each airpak and a mask custom fit for each firefighter. Above,
firefighter Jody Hoagland is shown with the new equipment.'

Scotts Ferry man
jailed after marijuana
roaches discovered
A man driving without a license
ended up behind bars on drug
charges Thursday.
Arrested was Darryl Blaine Neal,
41, charged with possession of less
than 20 grams of marijuana and drug
paraphernalia.
According to the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office, Dep. Eddie Dalton

community due to the fact he knew
his drivers license had been sus-
pended. After placing Neal under
arrest, a burnt marijuana roach was
spotted in plain view under the radio
in his vehicle. A tin can with three
more burnt marijuana roaches and a
pack of rolling papers were found on
the passenger seat.
Neal was booked into the
