Grantham


receives


Jefferson


Award
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Blountstown's own
Harvey Grantham was hon-
ored Thursday night with a
prestigious Jefferson Award.
The presentation was
made at the Martin Theatre
in Panama City and aired
live on WMBB News 13, the
station that sponsors the
event each year.
According to WMBB, the
Jefferson Award was found-
ed over 25 years ago in
Washington, DC, by the
American Institute for Public
Service. The award is given
to those who serve, help and
heal across America. One of
its major goals is to reach
into communities across the
country to reward individu-
als who might otherwise go
unnoticed.
Grantham spent several
years as Blountstown's fire
chief and has donated
countless hours helping
build wheelchair ramps for
the needy. Watch for his full
story in the next edition.

CRIME


Accident


ends in


arrest


for DUI
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A local man who crashed
into the Calhoun County
sheriffs property has been
charged with driving under
the influence and property
damage.
William Uyvonne Barfield,
47, was arrested Sunday
afternoon in the case.
According to a Sheriffs
Office report, a 911 call
came in from a passing
motorist who spotted
Barfield's vehicle as it ran off
the road on SR73 North
near 10 Mile Creek. Rescue
workers from the Carr-
Clarksville Volunteer Fire
Department were first on the
scene and were talking with
the driver, identified as
Barfield, as Dep. Nick Keller
arrived. Barfield reportedly
stated he took evasive action
to avoid striking a deer and
lost control of his vehicle.
The vehicle exited the road-
way on the east shoulder
before impacting several
trees on its passenger side
and striking a gate that
belonged to Sheriff David
Tatum.
While speaking with
Barfield, Dep. Keller detect-
ed an odor of alcohol emit-
ting from Barfield and
noticed his speech was very
slurred.
Trooper Philip Spaziante
from the Florida Highway
Patrol arrived and the inves-
tigation was turned over to
him. Barfield was arrested a
short time later.

News Editor
The Altha Lady Wildcats
won three out of five over the

1 and 11-1. Kristin Yon led
Altha with a triple and three
RBIs. Taylor Shelton also
contributed a triple.
The Altha girls were in

fell to Sneads, 10-0. Cherie
Hires had a single for the
Cats.
"We struggled offensively,"
says Coach Cassie Bates. "We
were not mentally ready for
this game."

hard, but were edged 7-6 in
another road trip to Grand
Ridge Apr. 6. Hires led Altha
with a homerun, two singles
and three RBIs. Lindsey
Doyal offered a triple, a single
and an RBI.
The tables were turned the
following day when the Cats
made a trip across the river
to Bristol and defeated the

up for this game," Coach
Bates remarks. "We hit the
ball great. I'm proud of
Lindsey Doyal how she really
came in strong for us. Great
job, ladies!"
Doyal led Altha with a
triple, two doubles, a single,
and three RBIs. Hires added

Wildcats are #1 in


The County Record, APRIL 12, 2006, Page 7


district


BY JIM MclNTOSH
Last Thursday night,
S Murphy's Law was in effect
for the hosting Wildcats (5-
1)--anything that could go
wrong, did go wrong for
them. In their worst defen-
sive performance of the sea-
son, Altha committed 9 field-
ing errors and had only 3 hits
against the Wewa Gators (10-
9) and lost, 10-1.
Matt Maxwell scored the
S only Wildcat run in the first
inning after he had reached
first on an error and then
stole second base. Noah
Byler was the next batter and
his hit to left field was mis-
played by the left fielder
allowing Maxwell to score.
The following Friday night
at the Cotton Patch was one
filled with much anticipation.
First, the farmers in the
crowd were anticipating some
much needed rain that had
been forecasted for early yes-
terday morning. Second,
Altha baseball fans were
anticipating this second dis-
trict diamond duel with the
Sneads Pirates. Having won
the first meeting in Sneads
(8-12, 1-2, District 3), 10-8,
the Wildcats (6-11, 3-1,
District 3) knew another win
would secure them first place
in the district standings, a
first round bye in the district
S tournament and a berth in
2A regional play.
Sneads scored one run in
S the first inning and another
one in the second.
With the Pirates leading 2-
0. the Wildcats began their
comeback in the bottom of
the second inning. Cale
Chafin was issued a walk
with one out. Batting with


two outs, Matt Alford, ripped
a RBI double to right center
field, scoring Chafin.
Wildcats' hurler, Keith
Kirkpatrick (5-2), would hold
Sneads scoreless in the third
and fourth innings.
In the bottom of the third
inning, Kirkpatrick would
help his own cause as he
rocketed a lead-off triple to
centerfield which hit the top
of the fence and bounced
back into the playing field.
Matt Maxwell would score
Kirkpatrick with a single
through the right side, knot-
ting the score, 2-2.
Altha would break the
game open in the bottom of
the fourth inning when Tony
Golden reached base after
being hit by a pitch. A field-
er's choice put Alford at first
base and a throwing error by
the Pirates allowed Golden to
reach second. Wildcats' cen-
terfielder, Gary Chew, would
also reach on a fielder's
choice. Another Sneads'
error would put Kirkpatrick
at first and allowed Golden to
score Altha's go-ahead run.
With two outs and the bags
full of Wildcats, Josh
McIntosh scorched the game-
winning 3 RBI double to left
centerfield and secured
Altha's anticipated dream
with a 7-2 lead.
However, Sneads came
close to shattering that'
dream as they weren't about
to go down without a fight.
To begin the fifth inning, the
lead-off batter drew a walk..
With one out an RBI double
would plate Sneads' third run
of the game
The Pirates would plate
two more runs in the sixth
cutting the Wildcats' lead to

7-5. With two outs, Jason
Moore reached on a walk.
Next, Matt Neel blasted a
two-run shot over the left
centerfield fence. Wildcats'
centerfielder, Gary Chew,
turned in one of their game-
saving defensive web gems on
Taylor Edge. Edge had
reached on a double. On a
throwing error the runner
tried to score but Chew
gunned him down at the
plate.
More heart-racing drama
unfolded in the top of the sev-
enth inning. With one out
Sneads' Brad Douglas was
hit by a pitch. Next, Matt
Lanier was given a free pass
to first base and moved
Douglas to second. A field-
er's choice put Garrett
Dunham on first and the
bases were loaded. An Altha
error allowed Douglas to
score drawing the Pirates to
within a run of the Wildcats,
7-6. Sneads next batter,
James McAlpin, was inten-
tionally walked to load the
bases again. However,
Wildcats' pitcher, Keith
Kirkpatrick, would fan the
last batter to fulfill Altha's
dream and put Altha atop the
District 3, Class 2A.
After the game an elated
Coach Arthur Faurot stated,
"This is the first time in my

"Go Fish"
On Friday, March 31,
2006, the kindergarten and
first grade classes of Altha
School performed their
spring program titled "Go
Fish." The children per-
formed marvelously.
The play was about fish in
the ocean who weren't happy
with themselves. They each
had something that they did-
n't like about themselves.
For instance, the tiger shark
wanted friends and the clown,
fish wished to be able to tell
funny jokes. In the end,
however, the fish realized
that everyone has flaws but
that is what makes them who
they are.

US, more than 400,000
Americans lose their lives to
tobacco-related diseases,
from heart disease and can-
cers to emphysema and
stroke. The annual Honors
ceremony raises funds for
life-saving programs and
campaigns to keep young
people from smoking, and to
help Americans who want to
quit get the services and sup-
port they need.
Abner, 20, is currently a
junior at Florida Agricultural
and Mechanical University,
where he is pursuing a
Bachelor of Science degree in
business.

tion Board of Directors and North Carolina House of Representatives.


his interest in and commit-
ment to tobacco control ini-
tiatives. He has been involved
in the Florida Students
Working Against Tobacco
(SWAT) program since its
inception, and strives to edu-
cate students about the dan-
gers of smoking. He has
worked to sustain Florida's
SWAT in recent years due to
funding reductions by the
Florida legislature. This past
year, Abner helped evaluate a
contract for the SWAT pro-
gram, which is now on a sub-
stantially smaller budget.
The American Legacy
Foundation selects its youth


board liaison from a group of
youth who currently serve
the organization. Among the
foundation's programs that
involve young people in
tobacco prevention and ces-
sation initiatives is the Youth
Advisory Panel (YAP), which
Abner was selected to in
March 2004. The YAP helps
the foundation creatively and
effectively convey the risks of
tobacco products to young
people. Abner, who is cur-
.rently serving an 18-month
term on the YAP, and also
serves as the Youth Board
Liaison.
The American Legacy


Foundation@ is dedicated to
building a world where young
people reject, tobacco and
anyone can quit. Located in
Washington, D.C., the foun-
dation develops programs
that address the health
effects of tobacco use
through grants, technical
assistance and training,
youth activism, strategic
partnerships, counter-mar-
keting and grassroots mar-
keting campaigns, public
relations, and outreach to
populations disproportion-
ately affected by the toll of
tobacco. Visit www.american-

this process to grade and
make sure students follow
proper procedures. The ses-
sions are taped so that after-
wards the students can play-
back the tape to see what
they can improve. Following
the tour, the whole group
received a speech from the
Dr. Peter Evelan, Assistant
iean': of" the College of
Medicine. During this time
there was a question and
answer session for the stu-
dents. Afterwards, the stu-
dents dined in the FSU union
Center.
For students preparing to
enter the medical field, this
trip was extremely rewarding.
Each experienced a day in
the life of a medical student
and now has a better under-
standing of what to expect.

Altha culinary team second in state
Altha High School's ProStart Culinary Team of 12 students went to Orlando March 20 during spring break to compete in the
6th Annual Prostart Competition. The team was accompanied by several parents, grandparents, and many friends, including
Calhoun County School Superintendent Mary Sue Neves and Mrs. Mary Ann Williams, who all were there to cheer them on. At
the end of the day, Altha's team took second place overall in the state out of 59 schools. "We really were going for first place,
but it just wasn't in it for us this year," says Marie Granger who teaches the culinary program at Altha. "The team put all they had
into it and I am very proud to be the teacher of such a wonderful group of students. Altha has been very successful the five years
we have been attending this competition. Every year we have placed in in the top five schools in the state." Pictured are team
members (from left) Amber Cook, Anra Nichols, Brandon Dysard, Ashton Lee, Jason McCoy, Maura Shiver, Brandy Griffin, Justin
McCoy, Mary Mclntosh, Anna Le, Jeremy Watford, and Samantha Dehn.

for a down payment, taxes, title and tag
