ARSON


Husband


charged


in arson


of home
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A Bristol man was arrest-
ed Thursday on arson
charges after allegedly burn-
ing down the home he
shared with his wife.
Firefighters responded to
the home of Ricky and
Jeanine Revell on Jimmy Lee
Road at Lake Mystic
Thursday morning, but the
home was a total loss. Both
Jeanine and the couple's son
were reportedly staying with
family members at another
location at the time.
However, authorities inter-
viewed Ricky Revell later
that day and he confessed to
pouring diesel fuel inside the
structure and igniting the
blaze.
Revell was formally
charged and held without
bond. He has been turned
over to TMH for psychiatric
evaluation.
The remnants of the
home are pictured on page
14 of this issue.

CALHOUNULBERTY HOSPITAL ISSUES



slators tour hospital,




consider options for help


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor


Lawmakers and state
health regulators paid a
visit to Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital Monday morn-
ing to discuss the fate of
rural healthcare and
possible options for
struggling hospitals in
small counties. i
Secretary Alan Levine
of Florida's Agency for
H e alt h c a r e
Administration was
joined by State
Representative Marti
Coley. She has been
working diligently with
the Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital Board to save
the local facility since
DasSee, the company
operating it, pulled out
earlier this year after fail-
ing to meet payroll. Also
touring was State
Representative Rene'
Garcia of Miami who
serves as Chairman of
the House Healthcare
Regulation Committee.
For the past couple of
months, hospital board
members have moved


THE FATE OF RURAL HEALTHCARE was the topic of a legislative tour at Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital Monday morning. Shown above (from left) are Barry Cochran, acting hospital
administrator; Secretary Alan Levine of the Agency for Healthcare Administration; Laddie
Williams, Calhoun-Liberty Hospital Board Chairman; State Representative Marti Coley of
Marlanna; Blountstown Mayor Winston Deason; State Representative Rene' Garcia of
Miami; Amber Bell, Legislative Aide to Rep. Garcia; Jacqui Sosa, Legislative Assistant to Rep.
Garcia; Glenn Mitchell, Staff Director of Florida's Healthcare Regulation Committee; and
Dave Berk, consultant to the Calhoun-Liberty Hospital Board,


from a landlord role into operators of the facility in an
effort to keep it open. In recent weeks, they have received
*funding assistance on the state and local level. But dur-
ing the tour Monday, Secretary' Levine suggested the
board consider partnering with other rural hospitals who
are in the same boat financially and are fighting to stay
afloat facilities in Madison, Gadsden, and Taylor coun-
ties. Levine said he believed if the rural hospitals would
partner, lawmakers could pursue legislation to assist
them.
According to Levine, the state has lost in excess of $6
million from rural hospitals because of Medicare pay-
ments owed. "So the state has a vested interest in the
success of rural hospitals," he remarked. "What if, think-
ing outside the box,. these rural hospitals were banded
together as a non-profit and reported to their county
commissions. They.would have the ability to share serv-
ices. Purchasing would be at one hospital, billing would
be at another, and they could share a risk manager."
Levine said he believed a small hospital trying to go it
alone was "a model doomed to failure." He added that,
due to community pride, many rural hospitals don't want
to join forces with other facilities outside their county,
but emphasized, "If the rural communities want that
pride of ownership, they better put the money on the


table. They can't keep coming back to the state to bail
them out."
Dave Berk, consultant to the Calhoun-Liberty Hospital
board, said he felt sure there were models of success they
could study on other small hospitals around the country
who have joined forces. "It's very tough for rural commu-
nities to get the resources," he pointed out. "Some of that
networking can work, there's no doubt about it."
Levine commended Rep. Coley and told hospital board
members, "If she hadn't stepped up, this hospital proba-
bly would have closed down. I don't know if you realize
what an advocate you have in Rep. Coley."
In response, Rep. Coley said keeping the hospital
doors open was a joint effort by many parties. She urged
the hospital board to consider Levine's advice on partner-
ing with other hospitals. "You're going to have to consid-
er what he's saying," she stated. "We're not going to pur-
sue something if the hospital does not believe in it, but
we can have a joint program."
Rep. Garcia agreed. "Marti and I are committed and we
can get the votes," he said. "It's not just putting a band
aid on it...it really goes back to the board and communi-
ty to pursue this network. It's something I think would
work."
Hospital board members will be researching and dis-
cussing all options in the near future.

BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
The Altha 'Wildcats
chalked up a 5-2 win over
cross county rival
Blountstown Friday night at
Tiger Field.
"We played good, solid
baseball," says an ecstatic
Coach Arthur Faurot. "It was
a good ball game. I've
coached in Altha for 17 years
and this is the first year we've
,had to face Blountstown in
district competition."
Both Altha and BHS are
now 1-1 in the district with
Sneads their only foe.
Blountstown had won the
first meeting with the Cats
earlier this season, 4-0.
Altha sophomore Keith


Kirkpatrick helped seal the
victory for the Cats on the
mound. He faced 29 Tiger
batters, striking out 15 and
allowing only two hits. He
gave up one earned run.
Offensively, Kirkpatrick
had a big blow at the plate,
blasting a grand slam. Matt
Maxwell was 2 for 3 and Tad
Scott was 1 for 2. The
Wildcats left six men on base
in the game.
Altha committed five
errors to Blountstown's two.
The Tigers' two hits came.
from Corey Cox who had a
double and Josh Lilly with a
Single. Cox did a good job on
the mound for BHS, striking
out 12 Wildcats and allowing
just four hits.

Apr. 15 in Port St. Joe


The County Record, MARCH 15, 2006, Page 7


The 4th Annual Kids
Fishing Tournament will be
held Saturday, April 15, at
the Port St. Joe Marina.
This event has offered kids
and their families the oppor-
tunity to work together, plan-
ning and challenging them-
selves to search out and
catch a variety of fish species,
while enjoying the waters of


St. Joe Bay and surrounding
nature. It's truly a chance to
create a "family memory."
Local boat owners are
planning to offer kids the
chance to fish in the bay.
Fishing from the marina
docks, adjacent piers and
other local "fishing holes"
should help make this a won-
derful day.

tional information, please call

FROM THE PANHANDLE AREA
EDUCATION CONSORTIUM

One Central Florida school
board member wants to' use
hard cash to attract some of
the nearly 32,000 new teach-
ers that will be needed for
next school term. While com-
petitive salaries may be unre-
alistic, other recruitment.
methods may not be.
Meanwhile, the Florida Dept.
of Education (DOE) is looking
at a strategic approach that
will maintain teacher quality
in Florida while increasing
teacher numbers.
With Florida colleges only
graduating some 6,000
teachers a year and assum-
ing all of those graduates go
to work in a Florida school,'
that still leaves the state
about'26,000 teachers short.
"We're going to
Pennsylvania and Ohio look-
ing -for teachers," Osceola
County School Board mem-
ber Tom Greer told the House
Choice and Innovation
Committee earlier this
month.
Mr. Greer, former presi-
dent of the ,Florida School
Boards Association (FSBA),
suggested the state institute
a "loan forgiveness" program
to entice new teachers. This
money could be used, for
example, to subsidize a new
teacher's housing needs. He
suggested a $10,000 loan
program good for five years,
with new teachers receiving
$2,000 a year, half supplied
by the state. the other half by
local school districts.
PAEC directors. in their
Legislative Platform this year.
suggested a Small and Rural
County Teacher Shortage
Program that would involve.
$5,000 a year scholarships
for students who agree to
teach in small districts of less
than 24.000 students. The
board would also like to see
the state offer a "salary
incentive" for teachers who
agree to work in these small-
er districts.

Come out and support th the end of each year, but pro-
girlsl tectons should be put in to


Prevent teachers who don't
meet the criteria from obtain-
ing the loans," said Mr. Greer.
The Gulf County School
Board, at a recent workshop,
looked into the possibility of
building teacher housing in
order to not only retain cur-
rent teachers, but attract
new ones. School
Superintendent Tim Wilder
told. the board that after
interviewing multiple teach-
ers interested in open teach-
ing positions in Gulf County,
prospects consistently said
they could not afford to live
in the county. Another
option: the superintendent
was asked to investigate
whether utility companies
might be willing to waive
deposits for incoming teach-
ers.
Mr. Greer's Osceola dis-
trict is also pursuing other
methods to attract more
teachers, such as the. alter-
nate teaching route provided
by the Legislature: a year or
so ago that makes it easier
for professionals in other
industries to obtairi a teach-
ing certificate. For instance,
'the district is partnering with
a local community college
and university to allow school
administrators "who want to
be teachers to attend classes
at no cost to them. The
County's Education
Foundation pays the first two
years, and the district the
last two." he said.
We also take one or two of
our new teachers and train,
them to recruit. We then take
them to career fairs in other
states. It used to be teachers
would be standing in line at
our booth to come to Florida.
Now we have to go out and
convince them to come to our
booth so we can' recruit
them." said Mr. Greer.
While Florida's teacher
pay scale is lower than some
other states, it does have
some advantages, such as no
state income tax and lower
housing costs. K-12
Chancellor Cheri Yecke told
Sthte cotmiititee.""In somne
states, such as Minnesota --
where I'm from -- they're lay-
ing off teachers. I wrote an
op-ed piece for a newspaper
there telling teachers that if
they want to come to Florida.
we i welcome them. We have


sunshine and no state
income tax. Minnesota has
the fourth highest tax rate in
the country."
The chancellor said the
DOE is "looking for that bal-
ance between quality and
quantity." One study shows
that "if students have three
highly qualified teachers
three years in a row, they're
more likely to score signifi-
cantly higher on tests. It
behooves us to look for qual-
ity individuals."
The needed new teachers
comprise 23 percent of the
workforce. "That shows the
enormity of what we're look-
ing at. Teacher graduates at
Florida's colleges of educa-
tion have remained flat in
terms of the number of
teachers they're producing.
Last year, there were 724
fewer teachers being graduat-
ed than there were a decade
ago."

Another alternate route to
that teaching certificate can
come through Education
Preparation Institutes, "stan-
dard programs that take peo-
ple with the skills and teach
them classroom manage-
ment, lesson planning, etc.
So, we're promoting a variety
of paths to certification.
Florida is leading the nation,
along with New Jersey, in the
teachers coming out of these
programs," added Chancellor
Yecke.
SWhy the shortage? It's
being driven by multiple fac-
tors, the,. chancellor
explained, but the two main
ones are class size and,
salaries. "If it weren't for
class size, we would need
about 9,000 new teachers,"
she said. And that's only
going to get worse. Class size
accounts for 11,800 vacan-
cies next school year, com-
pared to 4,300 this term, due
to the fact that class size
compliance will be measured
at the school, level (rather
than the district level) next
year and by 2010, by individ-
ual classroom. The
Legislature will attempt this
session to adopt a revision to
the Class Size amendment
that would cap compliance at
the district level. That would
still need to be approved by
voters in November.

S When the 1.5-mile track, then called Atlanta

I of the original seven, Darlington Raceway,
Daytona Intemational Speedway and Lowe's (then
Charlotte) Motor Speedway, are still in operation. But the Atlanta track's
future was hazy in the 1960s and '70s, when it suffered several finan-
cial setbacks. Bruton Smith changed all that when he purchasedAtlanta
Intemaional Raceway in 1990, and renamed the fality Atlanta Motor
Speedway. Under Smith's stewardship, Atlanta Motor Speedway has
not only undergone massive expansion, but it has dramatically
increased its menu, hosting everything.from Busch Series, ARCA and
Indy car racing to dog shows, concerts and business conventions.

Biography:
Kyle Busch joined Hendrick Motorsports on
Feb. 4, 2003 and found success on the track
almost immediately. He won his first
Automobile Club of America race at Nashville
Speedway from the pole position, and fol-'
lowed up with a second win at Kentucky
Speedway in the very next outing. That same
year he entered seven NASCAR Busch
Series, earning a runner-up finish at Lowe s
Motor Speedway in his first start. In 2004,
during his first full season in the Busch
Series, five records fell as he became the
youngest top rookie in series history by fin-
ishing second in the championship point
standings at age 19. In late 2004, Kyle Busch
was selected by Hendrick Motorsports to
replace racing veteran and two-time Winston
Cup championship winner Terry Labonte in
the famed No. 5 Kellogg s Chevrolet for 2005
and beyond.

Frank Williams Lane,
Blountstown.
With the formal meeting
adjourned, the Plant
Exchange was held. All
attendees brought at least
one plant, drew a number,
and when his/her number
was called, chose a plant.
Actually, each one received 2


plants.
The Plant Exchange is fun
and informative as attendees
had heard about the plants
displayed before making their
choices.

The next meeting will be
Monday, April 3, at the
County Extension Buidling.
