after crashing on SR 71


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A Blountstown man remains in the cardiovas-
cular intensive care unit at Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital after a single vehicle crash on SR 71
Friday afternoon.
Sources say Anthony Paul Alday, 21, sustained
injuries to his head, back, legs, and spleen.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Alday
was northbound on SR 71 approximately one
mile north of Carlos Peavy Road just before 1 p.m.
when his 2003 Chevy S-10 pickup traveled into
the southbound lane and ran off the road. The'
vehicle struck a mailbox and a concrete culvert
before going airborne and slamming into two pine
trees. The truck then rotated counterclockwise
and came to final rest on the west shoulder.
Alday was treated at the scene by paramedics
with Emergystat Ambulance, then flown by heli-
copter to Tallahassee Memorial.
The accident was investigated by Trooper
Brandon A. Eldridge. Alday was wearing a seat-
belt at the time of the crash.


Paramedics from Emergystat Ambulance treat Anthony Paul
Alday at the scene of the crash Friday. He remains critical.

DRUG ARREST


BPD busts


local man


on crack


charges
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
An anonymous tip led to
the arrest of a Blountstown
man suspected of selling
crack cocaine Friday.
George Huie, 40, was
charged with possession of
crack cocaine with intent to
sell within 200 feet of a pub-
lic housing unit, tampering
with evidence, and posses-
sion of drug paraphernalia.
According to the
Blountstown Police
Department, Ofc. David
Creamer, Ofc. Darryl
Temple, and Ofc. Chuck
Bender served a search war-
rant on Huie's residence at
20763 SE Azalea Avenue
Friday night at 6 p.m. When
they knocked on the door
and identified themselves,
Huie reportedly ran down
the hall. The officers forced
their way inside, found Huie
on a couch and heard the
toilet flushing. Ofc. Creamer
went to the bathroom and
managed to extract a piece of
crack cocaine from the toilet
as several pieces of crack
were flushing. Huie was then
placed under arrest.
Huie was searched and a
knife in his pocket revealed
cocaine residue on the blade.
His pockets also appeared to
have cocaine residue and
were collected as evidence.
A search of the bathroom
turned up another piece of
rock form cocaine in the tub,
along with a pill bottle.
Cigarette butts, commonly
used to control humidity and
keep crack from spoiling,
were also found in the toilet.
Ash residue was discovered
in the pill bottle, leading the
officers to believe the crack
was kept in the container.
Inside a bedroom, a crack
pipe with cocaine residue
was recovered. In another
bedroom, a DVD case with
cocaine residue was located.
A photo in the bedroom
depicted one female holding
what appeared to be a cook-
ie of crack cocaine and
another female next to a
large amount of cash. Under
Huie's bed, $205 in cash was
found hidden in the bed
frame. Due to the fact the
money was in $20 incre-
ments, it was suspected to
be crack cocaine proceeds as
rocks are typically cut into
$20 pieces.
Huie was booked into the
Calhoun County Jail and
remains in custody.

guage there. Currently, she

with a career in nursing as
her goal.
THe charming Mrs. K gave
a "Tell and Show" presenta-
tion. She talked about her
country the people, place,
customs, activities then she
showed a video which added
color, music, dancing, fabu-
lous scenery, the feel of life in
Georgia, the love of music
and poetry, the exciting din-
ner parties.
She also displayed a mar-
velous religious Icon made by
her father, a talented artist.
He drew the design for the
icon on metal, hammered out
the figures and various
designs, and then hand
painted each item. It's beau-
tiful!
What an outstanding pro-
gram! It was so generous of
you, Mrs. K, to spend some
time with us. Your country
sounds so delightful. We
loved listening to you.
Gail Wood gave the
Devotions. She read a clever


article "Hobbling Home" from
Laughter Is The'Spice of Life
which told of a woman's
mishaps while deplaning and
leaving the airport the rest
room closed, falling off the
escalator, breaking a heel on
one shoe. "We may be
bruised, but not broken."
Gail closed with a prayer.
Members enjoyed refresh-
ments prepared by Peck

Holy Ground
Exodus 3:5
In this scripture Moses
encounters God in the form of a
burning bush. But Moses did
not fall to the ground as Abram
before him did.
'"Take off your sandals," God
tells him, "The place where you
are standing is holy ground."
There was a rule in Dean
Nelson's home that existed only
because the carpet is off-white
and he wants it to stay that
color. When people came in their
front door, they take their shoes
off (first-time guests are par-
doned). If they don't they have to
pay their five-year-old a quarter.
Dean says, "I am making him
rich with my forgetfulness."
It was a habit to do this with
everyone in their house. If God
were to declare it holy, He would
need them to do something dif-
ferent from removing their shoes.
Maybe put them back on!
With Moses the point was to
show his humility in the pres-
ence of God; he took on a holy
stance that removed the barriers
between himself and holy
ground. This isn't just symbol-
ism. A requirement of being in
God's presence is that we change
both inside and out. Maybe our
stance is part of it, but the
important thing is our attitude
as we come into His presence.
We do change, we ought to
change, we must change. Have
you changed? We must change.
Have you changed by coming
into Christ's presence and ask-
ing Him to forgive you for your
sins and cleanse you from all
unrighteousness?

In honor of National Nurse's Week May 6-12....




Esther Stoltzfus shares story


BY ESTHER STOLTZFUS

In honor of Nurse's Week
May 6-12, Blountstown's
Esther Stoltzfus shares this
heart wrenching story of a
typical 48 hours as an emer-
gency. room nurse at
Tallahassee 'Memorial
Hospital.

SThe American Dream
Life. Love. Liberty... and
the pursuit of happiness.
Those are the components of
the great American dream.
Emma Lazarus wrote these
healing words, "Give me your
tired, your poor, your strug-
gling masses yearning to
breathe free......."
America is the land of
opportunity. People believe
at some deep level that we are
created equal.... and with
enough hard work, effort,,
and maybe some help and
good fortune along the way,
we can possess enough stuff
to be happy. All across the
spectrum, from the very rich'
to the very poor, in America
we are privileged to work to
make our lives better.
But tragedy and death do
not respect wealth, status.
age, or even good health. In
my world as an ER nurse. I
'see that the American Dream
doesn't protect any of us from
the inevitability of grief.
This is a story of two
fathers.. Two children. Wealth
and poverty. And death.
One family came to
America from Mexico. They
probably had nothing and
wanted the American dream
for themselves and their chil-
dren. They were young, ob\i-
ously poor, but in search of a
better life. They found work
either in the vegetable fields
or working in pine straw---in
the piney woods of northwest
Florida. people grow pine
trees and harvest the pine
needles that fall every year.
They are baled (just like hay)
and sold to other Americans -
--all pursuing the Am'erican
dream ---who want neatly
mulched flower beds to com-
plement their neatly mani-
cured lawns.'
,1 This couple had two girls--


one was a toddler......and the
other was two months old. ..
She was our patient. She -
had rich golden skin, exotic k'r -
almond shaped eyes, and a
head full of ebony colored
hair. They spoke no English
and information I got fromrri
them was translated to me by
dne of our bilingual ER doc-
tors.
We got the panicky call on
the radio, "CPR in progress
on a two month old" And that
was all we heard. We got a
room ready .....we had emer- :

work. We worked so hard----
we put in chest'tubes, a tube
to drain his stomach,. we gave
him blood, we gave him IV
fluids, but he never had a
pulse and never breathed.
Once again I went with the
doctor to talk to the pa-ents.
They were quiet and calm---I
think they knew their son
was not going to survive
when they first saw his
injuries.
These parents had lived
the American Dream. They
had worked hard and had
been able to buy a second
home with extra "toys". The
4-wheeler that their son
drove was a big and expen-
sive 4-wheeler, according to
the man who was the
groundskeeper at their prop-
erty.
I thought of the irony. Two
fathers. Two children. Two
deaths.
One death could have
probably been avoided if the
father. '-had understood
America better; he had no
knowledge of how to navigate
the American medical sys-
*tem. After all, he had just
started: to pursue his
American dream; he had no
wa\ of knowing that some
aspects of American medicine
are almost a nightmare.
On the other hand. the
accomplishment of the
American dream probably
contributed to the death of
the beautiful 10 year old
child. The groundskeeper
stood over his mangled body
and kept saying, tried to
tell him he drove that thing
too fast. I tried to tell him.
but he wouldn't hsten to any-
one.
I was heartsick for days.
There are no words to say to
parents who lose a cluld. The
only redemptive thing for me
was the fact that I knew our
ER staff had provided excel-
lent and competent care. I
knew that in our ER each
child got equal treatment---
the child of poverty and the


child of privilege received the
same treatment-----we didn't
care if they had money to pay
us or not. The American
Dream was not a factor in our
efforts to save these children.
I could sleep at night know-
ing we had done the very best
we could dofor both of these


children.
Events like these make me
remember this: Life is short
and meant to be lived well. A
good day is filled with smiles,
hugs, words of kindness, and
service to others. As a nurse,
I am blessed that this is part
of the job I am expected to do.

Cats are district champs!!


BY JIM MclNTOSH

SNEADS, APRIL 27- Ethan
Byler, Noah Byler, and Tad
Scott's three bombs (a.k.a.,
homeruns) helped to secure
the Altha Wildcats' (11-13, 4-
1 District 3) first baseball dis-
trict championship as they
defeated the Sneads Pirates
(9-14, 2-4 District 3), 13-3,
for the District 3, Class 2A
trophy last Thursday rught. It
took them only 1:38 to
accomplish their memorable
victory.
By 'virtue. of finishing in
first place in the district dur-
ing the regular season, Altha
received the bye in Tuesday's
first round of tournament
play and they were the home
team for the championship
game.
Sneads had advanced to
the championship game after
having beaten Blountstown,
S 15-10. on Tuesday night.
Wildcat ace, Keith
.Kirkpatrick (8-2), who was
S second in the Big Bend with
87 strikeouts before
Thursday's game, pitched his
seventh complete game. He
Only allowed three hits,
issued three walks and gave
Sup only two earned runs.
As the action got under-
way. Kirkpatrick knocked
down a hot shot back to him
and flipped the ball over to
first baseman Matt Maxwell
for the first out of the game.
Sneads' Taylor Edge singled
through the right side and
Kirkpatrick issued his first
walk to the next batter. Brad
Douglas. However. he would
sit down the next two batters
as they both looked at strike
three.
In the bottom of the first,
Kirkpatrick would reach first
base on a passed ball. With
two cuts Noah Byler jacked a
two-run homer over the left
center field fence to begin the
Wildcats' scoring frenzy.
Sandwiched in between
two more Kirkpatrick strike-
outs, center fielder Gary
Chew turned in the web gem
of. the night in the second
inning. The Pi-ates,:;Biandob
Kiikland, hit a dying quail to
right center field. On a dead
run Chew scooped it off the
top of the grass to sit the
Pirates down in order.
Sneads would knot the
score 2-2 in the third inning.
Jason Moore drew a lead off
walk. Matt Neel's seeing-eye
single found a hole on the left
side. A sacrifice Lly by Taylor
Edge allowed Moore to score
Sneads'-first run of the game.
After Kirkpatrick rung up his
fifth strikeout of the evening
he issued a walk. With a
pinch runner on first Sneads'
Pat Jones hit. a dribbler back
to Kirkpatrick but he over-
threw first base. However.
Wildcats' right fielder, Tony
Golden was backing up the
play. As the base runner,
Alex
McAlpin was rounded
third base; Golden threw a
laser to catcher Noah Byler
and gunned him down at the
plate for' the third out of the
inning.
Kirkpatrick would help his
own cause in Wildcats' third
inning. He ripped a double
over the center fielder's head.
Maxwell followed by smash-
ing a single to right center
field. Then Tad Scott brought
in his first of four runs on the
night when Kirkpatrick came
home on Scott's single to left
center field. Next, Noah Byler
reached on a fielder's choice
that moved Maxwell to third
and Scott was forced out at
second for the inning's first
out. The second fielder's
choice in a row allowed sec-
ond baseman Josh Mclntosh
to- reach first and pick up a
RBI as Scott scored. However.
B;ler was forced out at sec-
ond base and a Wildcat
strikeout ended the inning.
In the top of the fourth
inning, Sneads' Matt Lanier
would fly out to Chew and
Kirkpatrick would pick up
two more strikeouts-one
swinging and, one looking-to
set down the side in order.
The Wildcats would blow
the game open in the home
half 'of the fourth inning.
Tony Golden started the five-
run inning with an infield
single to the left side. The
next batter. Matt Alford,. sin-


gled through the left side.
G6lden reached second base
drn an eiror by the third base-
rman and Alford advanced to
'second on a fielder' choice. A
balk by Sneads' southpaw
Sptcher, Brandon Kirkland (1-
.-9)F',i allowed .'Golden to touch-
i.r 'te dish for Altha's fifth run


'; ,:


and moved Alford to third.
With one out Kirkpatrick
reached on a shortstop error
and it allowed Alford to score.
Next, Matt Maxwell drew a
walk. On his next at bat,
shortstop T'ad Scott left no
doubt about the Wildcats'
championship as he took the
first pitch he- saw: and.
cranked a three-run' home-
run over the left center field-
er. That gave Altha a 9-2 lead
and it ended the pitching


Sneads at the game!) and
helped them to become
District Champions! Also,
they would like to thank
Coaches Arthur and Ben
Faurot for all they have done
to help them reach this mem-
orable goal in their high
school careers!
The coaches and team
would like to give a special
thank you to Jim McIntosh
who is Altha's baseball
announcer and who also so


often does these play-by-
plays for us.
Prior to the district tour-
nament, the Cats took care of
business on the baseball dia-
mond as they ended their
regular season by shutting
out their last three oppo-
nents. and ending with a 10-.
13 record.

eighth graders and then
freshmen last year. This is
the Wildcats' first year of
competition in Class 2 A
(they are only 10.students
over the IA classification.).
As head coach Arthur Faurot
said, 'We played a tough
schedule with some.bigger 2A
schools but that has made us
a better team at this point in

the season."
The Wildcats would like to
thank all of the fans that
packed out the' home side
(Altfia had more fans than


they hosted the Aucilla
Christian Warriors (17-6) of
Monticello, the #4 ranked
team in Class 1A. Having
beaten the Warriors earlier in
the season, 8-3, the Wildcats
were looking for the sweep
and they got it in the form of
a shut out, 3-0.


Keith Kirkpatrick
improved his record to 7-2 by
pitching his sixth complete
game of the year. Of the 29
batters he faced, he scattered
five hits, fanned five of them,
and issued no walks.

BY DORIS EBERSOLE

As our two neighboring
communities prepare to come
together this weekend for the ,,
Calhoun-Liberty American
Cancer Society Relay for Life,
Doris Ebersole of Blountstown ,
shares her story of faith, R
hope, and survival.
It seemed like all of a sud-

cian checked me, I heard the
alarm in her voice. She
arranged for me to have fur-

it evening my husband
sat down to' watch the


ten o'clock news. when the
blow struck. Marlin. who had
been seizure-free for almost
nine months, had a severe
epileptic attack. Intense
anger erupted in my soul. I
wanted to scream at God,
"Why now of all times'?
Marlin's supposed to drain
my tubes in a few minutes,
but he's in convulsions and
unconscious. Isn't this can-
cer enough how can You be
so unfeeling?"
I stormed into the kitchen
and frantically busied myself
cleaning up. aware that I was
repeating a useless pattern of
busying myself to drown my
problems. knowing it would-

so instead of calling a friend.
I waited, fuming. In time
Marlin came around and we
managed to stumble to bed.
The sun already set upon my
wrath. Needless to say, I had
a restless night. But the next
day. I had time to think. I
knew that the intensity of my
anger was about much more
than the incident of the previ-
ous night. There was a can-
cer in niy soul that was far
more unsettling than the
trauma in my body. I focused
on seeking God's face in
reflection He showed me how
I had been deceived.
From early childhood I had
come to believe that I was on
my own. My mother was
taken away and my father.
not knowing how to live with
his grief and the care of five
youngchildren, became more
distant and angry. The can-
cer cells of anger and bitter-
ness. planted in the fertile
soil of disappointment. fear
and loneliness, grew in the
dark recesses of my soul. In
adolescence, my father
remarried. Hopes of having a
caring mother in our home
buoyed my spirit only to be
crushed underfoot. Bad
became worse. The message
"no one understands, you're
on your own" competed \\ith
scripture promise I was
taught in Sunday School.
Church was priority to my
dad. The outside of the cup
had to appear sparkling
clean, but cancer cells of pre-
tense, frustration, and confu-
sion festered underground.
And then I got married
with unrealistic expectations
that this man in my life could
bring happiness to my topsy-
turvy existence. Now thirty-
three years later, I was still


"Relay for Lie" set


battling depression and
defeat.
Now in these quiet hours
of reflection. I was finally lis-
tening more intently to the
voice of God. "I am your
refuge and strength. a very
present help in trouble. Cast
all your care on Me. I care for
you. I \will never leave you or
forsake you." Words I had
learned in childhood became
a lifespring of joy as I repent-
ed of my demand that others
come through for me tn ways
that only God .Amighty can
reach.
The surgical kmfe of God's
word cuts to the quick. but
the same tool is like an
embalming oil to heal the
wound. Recovery is ongoing.
but the Great Physician is
always present with encour-
agement and the promise
that. in the end. I will be
"cancer free"
God rewrote the text of my

Quilt Show at the



Settlement May 6


"Everlasting Stitches" 5th
, Annual Quilt Show is set for
Saturday, May 6, at the
Panhandle Pioneer Settlement
inside Sam Atkins Park in
Blountstown.
Bring in your quilts old and
new and the show hosts will be
happy to display them. This is
not a judged show, it is all for fun
and to show off treasured quilts.
Quilts will be accepted from 1
to 4 p.m. on Friday, May 5, at the
Frink Gym inside the Settlement,
or from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. on
Saturday, May 6. Quilts may be
picked up at 4:00 on Saturday,

Last year, we had everything
from a brand new baby quilt to a
100 year old quilt made by some-
one's grandmother. Some of the
quilts were in 'pristine condition,
others were in "cutter" condition.
Everyone loved them all.

n't hesitate as she explains it is
her mom, who happens to be an
Enghsh. teacher. "She's been my
teacher and my mother," she
remarks. "Whenever she taught
me, she stepped out of the box.
She took an initially boring sub-
ject like English and made It fun.
She's always been there and sup-
ported me in everything I do."
SOver the years. her favorite
subjects have been chorus.
drama, and history. "I love the-
atre and music." says Tiffany. "I
love music in general and love
learning about history and what
took place in the past I love to
act and smig those are two of
my passions
Tiffany says her secret to suc-
cess has been being disciplined
about studying. "It's important to
study." she stresses. "Sometimes
you have to balance your
extracurcular activities with
your academics and sometimes
that means studying over going
out one night." She says much of
her success Is due to the great
teachers she's had. "They weren't
your typical by-the-book. They
stepped out of the box and made
what they taught fun."
Justin McCoy has earned the
honor of being named Altha's
salutatorian.
The son of Kathryn McCoy of
Clarksville, Justin plans to pur-
sue an AA degree in the theatre
program at Chipola. He then
hopes to transfer to Florida State
University and earn a bachelor's
degree in theatre and English
and continue his education with
a master's degree in English edu-
cation. His dream Is to teach
English and drama/tfieatre at
the high school and college level.
After earning 32 hours of college
credit through dual enrollment
in high school, Justin already
has a head start on his educa-
tion.
With his career choices, it's
no mystery what Justin's favorite
subjects have been in high
school. "English and chorus." he,
says without a moment's
thought. "I love performing and
there's the literature aspect of it.
It all comes from literature, so
both subjects are very similar."
During high school. he has
been involved in journalism, the
culinary arts program, chorus.
Student Government, and Beta
Club. serving as chaplain this
year. In addition to the Bright
Futures scholarship, he has
earned the Chemical and Oil
Industry Scholarship Award.
Justin says his greatest influ-
ences in achieving his goals have
been two special teachers. "Mrs.
Sherry Joyner sets the example."
he says. "She doesn't just teach
her subject. she feels passionate
about it. She taught me the
importance of reading."
His other influence has been
Mrs. Amy Henegar-Valenta.
-She's taught me so many life
skills," he remarks. "She's been
my muse.
Justin's advice to anyone
hoping to succeed academically
is to be persistent. "You have to
read." he emphasizes. "Reading
is a big thing. Always 'do your
homework, even if you don't
want to. It's something I've just
always done. I consider myself
more of a hard working person
than a talented person."
Nicholas Myers has earned
valedictorian honors at BHS. The

enrollment courses under his

and I love my relationship with
God. As a coach. I'm combining
leadership and my relationship
with God with my love for sports
because I can be a role model.
God has given me the interest in
ministering the Good News
through Him through coaching.
He's given me that desire to do
this job."
Nicholas adds that God is the
reason for his academic success.
"I think he's given me a great
mind so I can handle the work-
load and do a lot of activities like
I've done," he notes. "I have a
good memory and that's some-
thing I can't control He's given
me a good memory.
While at BHS, Nicholas'
favorite subjects have been P.E.
and math. "I love athletics of any
kind and math...I understand it.
that's why I love it."
When he's not studying or
participating m activities with
his youth group at RiverTown
Community Church. Nick is
involved in several extracurricu-
lar activities. He's played Tiger
baseball for four years, coached
Tiny Mite football for two years,

school musicals for three years

Camp and I'm going back this
year as a helper/volunteer," he
says. Nicholas also was named

A Day at the Settlement


Back in the old days, local criminals were nela in the one room jail known as The Altma
Calaboose. Above, Sgt. Fred Tanner of the Blountstown Police Department tells this group of BES
kindergartners the story of the old jailhouse that was recently moved to the Settlement where it
is being preserved.


Kindergarten students from
Blountstown Elementary
School enjoyed some old
fashioned lessons at the
Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement inside Sam Atkins
Park Friday morning.
The youngsters toured the
cabins where they learned
how folks in the mid to late
1800s lived. On the front
porch of the Frink Gym, they
made cloth ac:ii:. An old log
cabin provided the backdrop
for making cracklins over an
open fire, as well as preparing
hoecake on a real hoe. The
criminal process was
explained in the old Altha
Calaboose. And there were
plenty of other hands-on
activities for the children
throughout the Settlement.
The Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement was founded in
July of 1989 as a way to bring
together the material history
of life between 1840 and the
beginning of World War II. It's
mission is to acquire, docu-
ment, research, and restore
buildings and other tools that
were used in work and daily
life. For more information, call
the Settlement at 674-3050.


Lovie Burkett, dressed in her 1800s attire, demonstrates how
hoecakes were made on an actual hoe.

Dear Gadsden, Liberty & Calhoun
County Residents,
Three years ago I obtained my Florida

headache for me:
*Haggling for the best price
*Having to come up with $2000 to $3000
for a down payment, taxes, title and tag

starting pitcher. Throwing a ball
with a lot of movement, Alford
had command of the strike zone
all afternoon, fanning 10 of the
25 batters he faced. He scat-
tered 2 hits and he only issued 3
