BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
After years of complaints
about stray dogs roaming
the county and the corpses
of dead animals spending
several days alongside local
highways, Commissioners
have agreed to revisit the
possibility of animal control.
Commissioner Danny
Wise, who represents
District 1, brought up the
matter at last Tuesday's
meeting and suggested the
county check into partnering
with the City of Blountstown
on the use of the animal
shelter. He also said he'd like
to- see the county pursue hir-
* ing an employee to deal with
animal problems.
S "I feel we should have
some kind of person that
Handles [animal issues],"
S Wise tells The County
Record. "I want to have ani-
mal control. It's not a good
image for the town to see a
huge animal on the side of
the road decaying."

A couple of developers
have a vision for what one
corner of Calhoun County
can become and they've got
the land, spirit, and imagi-
nation to make it happen.
Bruce White and Julie
Sanford, the architects
behind' Rosemary Beach in
South Walton County, have
partnered to create their own
development on a 600 plus
acre tract in the Clarksville
community. The pair and
their team envision a rural
village known as 'Sky' on the
site off SR20 and CR287
near Porter Grade Road.
Friday morning, they shared
their ideas with local leaders
and interested citizens at the
county extension office.

The proposed Sky community is reminiscent of a "rural farming village in Europe."


Calhoun County declared 'Storm Ready"
Bob Gorrie of the National Weather Service (NWS) was on hand at the Calhoun County
Commissioners meeting last Tuesday to present the board with a sign declaring Calhoun is a
"Storm Ready County." Gorrie has been working with the local Emergency Management
Department for the past three years to get the county to this state of preparedness. Pictured
at the presentation are (seated, from left) Commissioners Jeral Hall, Jim Pickron, and Willie T.
Grant, (standing) Emergency Management Director Sonny O'Bryan, Maj. Roman Wood of the
Sheriff's Department, Emergency Coordinator Angie Smith, Bob Gorrie of the NWS, Emergency

Lots at Sky would range from a quarter acre to five acres, allowing for gardens and horses.

designs," Teresa Baum, Sky's
Director of Sales and
Marketing, emphasized as
attendees perused the
sketches of homes, reminis-
cent of those in a European
hamlet. "We're not a huge
corporation. We're not St.
Joe. We're here as individu-
als...architects, planners,
environmentalists...we have
a.,t of aspirations- -add-;
dream of creating something
wonderful. What we're doing
can work and mesh beauti-
fully with what you're doing
with your town and commu-
nity as a whole."
Once local planning and
zoning issues are approved,
the team hopes to break
ground as early as next sum-
mer and set about building
400 homes over the next 15
years With the first residents
taking ownership within two
years.
"Sky will serve as a proto-
type for the future," Baum
explained. "We are using an
ecological design with rever-
ence to the natural beauty of
the land."
SAlthough the design team
did not want to talk price, it
was implied that the homes
would be high end with
attention to detail. Baum
said the development would
appeal to a variety of market
types. "Someone like myself
would like a place to get
away," she stated, adding
that it would also be attrac-
tive to families seeking a full-


time residence in a small,
rural community. "I think
there will be people all over
the country who will be
attracted to Sky. We're even
thinking of doing a lodge that
will create a destination."
Baum said the fact that
Calhoun County has an
above-average school system
makes the area especially
.appealing.- "The schools are
crucial," she remarked. "On

the coast, that's the first
thing buyers ask-about."
The architects explained
that the development will be
done in five phases. Lots will
range from a quarter acre to
as much as five acres. "We
want it to be like an old
English village...a rural farm-
ing village in Europe," said
Sanford. "We'd like to use as
many local materials as we
can, local lumber mills, and


as much Cypress from here
as we can. We want to work
with local builders and create
a builders guild to develop
fine craftsmanship."
The developers plan to
have an equestrian area in
the community, along with
public gardens and a
farmer's market.
David Clement, the real
estate broker on the project,
recently purchased his own
40 acre' site near the pro-
posed'development area. "As'
we know, Florida is growing
and changing," he pointed
out. "Do we want urban
sprawl? I don't think so. We
want smart growth. There's a
move in this country now to
getting back to nature, espe-
cially by those who have been
in urban areas. We want to
enhance what's here and
keep Calhoun County beauti-
ful."
The Sky team will address
the local planning commis-
sion at their next meeting to
present their proposal for the
site.

Blood Center

The Southeastern
Community Blood Center
(SCBC) reports that O posi-
tive, O negative, A positive, B
positive and A negative blood
types are all at less than a
one-day supply. Several hos-
pital patient cases depleted
an already fragile blood sup-
ply following the Memorial
holiday.
One recent case involved a
28-year-old male who
required over 25 units of O
negative blood transfused.
One might think this was the
result of a car accident, but
in reality it is a case of an
individual combating an
ongoing illness.
"Maintaining an adequate
daily blood supply is an inte-


gral part of managing
patient's medical needs day
to day. It is not just having
blood available for car acci-
dent and trauma patients but
for providing patients with
blood for medical treatment
for sickle cell, cancer and
open heart and elective sur-
geries. Other conditions
needing blood every day are
new born babies and Moms
undergoing maternity com-
plications," said Linda
James, SCBC Laboratory
Manager.
Consequently, SCBC is
appealing to the public to
visit a bloodmobile or center
immediately and give blood
so the supply can recover to a
5-day supply before the
current blood shortage delays
hospital medical treatment
and surgeries. It takes 24-48
hours to process a donated
unit of blood before it can be


transfused to a patient.
The Southeastern
Community Blood Center is a
nonprofit and the only blood
center providing blood to
families in 26 counties in
North Florida and South
Georgia. SCBC's home office
is located at 1731 Riggins
Road in Tallahassee, FL with
branches in Thomasville and
Douglas Georgia and in
Marianna and Panama City,
FL. SCBC also has seven
mobiles scheduled daily for
blood drives hosted by busi-
nesses, civic groups, schools,
churches and state agencies.
For more information con-
tact the blood center at 850-
877-7181, 800-722-2218 or
at www.scbcinfo.org. All
locations are open Monday
through Friday from 9am-

tion is open on Saturday,

LETTR *TO


,Letter to the Editor:
The parents of students
:who attend Blountstown
,Middle School should be
proud of the school and its
'faculty. I had the opportunity
to teach language arts and
reading at BMS for the 2005-
06 school year. The adminis-
-tration supports the teachers
'who constantly seek what is
'best for the individual stu-
dents.
Early in the school year,
*teachers set personal profes-
sional goals for their stu-
:dents based on last year's
test scores. The teachers look
-closely at the students' weak-
nesses. Throughout the year
these teachers work to
improve those areas which
S departments and guidance
have helped to identify.
Whether students realize it or
: not, the teachers have a plan
yor improvement that devel-
ops their math, reading, and
. writing skills.
Mr. Johnson and Mrs.
Miller are active administra-
tors who can be seen all over
the campus. They do not sit
behind their desks all day.
-hey visit classrooms to see
students and teachers at
!work. They talk to the stu-
dents before school, at
breaks and class changes,
and at the final bus loading.
Their constant visual pres-
ence shows interest and con-
,cern about the school and
the students. This diligent
awareness keeps discipline
problems to a minimum and
t-


provides a safe, secure learn-
ing environment.
BMS personnel work
together like a team with a
definite goal. The entire
school works and plays
together like that winning
team Americans have come
to cherish. They want the
students to grow intellectual-
ly, emotionally, physically,
and socially. The school pro-
vides varied opportunities for
each of these growths. Mrs.
Price is an innovative, knowl-
edgeable reading coach who
is always available with ideas
and materials to supplement
classroom activities aimed at
student growth. Mrs.
Brogden knows the students
on an individual name basis
and provides assistance in
numerous areas.
From the front office to the
lunchroom to the janitors,
they know the students and
care about them as individu-
als. I have worked in four
other schools, but I have
never experienced the
unity/teamwork from an
entire school family like that
at BMS. They work toward
growth for all students from
the gifted to the ESE. I don't
know if the state of Florida
will issue the A to BMS, BUT
I know as an experienced,
35-year veteran teacher that I
would issue them an A for
the 2005-06 school year. Be
proud of this school!

Why Did This

Happen to Me?
By Paul Joyner, Ph.D.


WHY DID THIS
HAPPEN TO ME??
SThis is a question that has
been around since time
began. "What did I do to
deserve this??" "Why did
[Goddo this to me?" "Why did
this have to happen to me?"
I remember some years
ago, a friend and his wife
vere driving in the early

SSomehow, largely through the Grace

pride on the part-of many people,
The County Record has never missed
an issue.

was barely detectable. But
she could tell some difference
in her appearance. She
could stand before the mirror
and exclaim "Why did this
happen to happen to me??
Why could it not have hap-
pened to an ugly girl instead
of me?" There was no appre-
ciation for being alive, having
the ability to walk and to eat
and to see. etc,, But this is
the way we are isn't it.' Wh
me, Lord?"
Why waste time and men-
tal energy in worrying about
why? Speculation will get
you no place. The important
thing is WHAT shall I do
about it? And to this ques-
tion, God has an answer. Are
you discouraged about life?
Find something to be enthu-
siastic about. Are you afraid
for the future? Go with God
and face it. Troubled by per-
sonal loss? Look away from
yourself to God and let Him
"clam the troubled waters" of
your life. Are you faced with
closed doors? Chris is at the
door let Him open it for you.
If you have a reason for liv-
ing, you will never ask: "Why
did this happen to me? Let
faith take the place of fear,
place your hand in God's
hand and start walking with
him.

Biography:
During.the 2004 season, Denny Hamlin caught
the eye of Joe Gibbs Racing with a handful of
,Craftsman Truck Series races while competing
full time in Late Models for Dean Motorsports.
Hamlin made his NASCAR Busch Series debut
at Darlington, dubbed NASCAR's "Toughest
Track to Tame". After starting in 27th place,
Hamlin worked his way towards an 8th place fin-
ish, as well as a future at Joe Gibbs Racing. In
2005, Hamlin replaced Mike Bliss in the #20
Rockwell Automation Chevrolet. He made his
Cup debut at Kansas Speedway in 2005 after
struggling driver Jason Leffler was released. He
finished the Cup season with three Top 10 fin-
ishes in seven starts and one pole at Phoenix
International Raceway before being named dri-
ver of the #11 FedEx Chevrolet for the 2006
Nextel Cup season. Hamlin is driving Double
Duty in 2006, running for Rookie of the Year in
Nextel Cup while also driving the full season for
Joe Gibbs Racing in the Busch Series.

The Army spends $16 million a year on its sponsorship
of the MB2 Motorsports race car and other NASCAR-
related marketing. The Army had a "touch and feel the
Army' exhibit at Lowe's Motor Speedway which featured
a shooting simulator, rock climbing wall and a pit stop
challenge display, which had participants racing to
change tires on a replica of the Nextel Cup car spon-
sored by the Army. The purpose of the display isrecruits.
The war in Iraq has made recruiting tougher. The Army
missed its active-duty enlisted recruiting goal for fiscal
2005 but has reached its monthly quotas since June.

Denny Hamlin 1 1 Chevrolet FedEx Ground 190/10 first Nextel Cup race at Pocono Raceway on Sunday.
Kurt Busch 2 2 Dodge Miller Lite 175/5 "We're trying to get into the Chase and this is a great way
Tony Stewart 18 3 Chevrolet The Home Depot 170/5 to do it," Hamlin said. Denny who had won the pole posi-
Brian Vickers 4 4 Chevrolet GMAC 165/5 tion, is trying to become the first rookie to qualify for the
Matt Kenseth 25 5 Ford DEWALT 160/5 Chase. During the race, 13 drivers provided 26 lead
Greg Biffle 7 6 Ford Subway/National Guard 155/5 changes, and the race was slowed by 7 cautions for 28
Kasey Kahne 3 7 Dodge Dodge Dealers/UAW 151/5 laps. Jeff Gordon's crash into the wall, prompted a 26-
Scott Riggs 17 8 Dodge Valvoline/Stanley Tools 147/5 minute red-flag caution period. Kurt Busch, who won at
Jeff Burton 5 9 Chevrolet Cingular Wireless 143/5 Pocono last July, was second. After the race, Hamlin
Jimmie Johnson 10 10 Chevrolet Lowe's 134/0 grabbed the-checkered flag and ran a reverse victory lap.

FWC offering hunting


for mobility-impaired


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is offering
sportsmen some unique
hunting opportunities for the
coming season.
The FWC is providing
sportsmen mobility-impaired
hunts, supervised youth
hunts, family hunts, quail
hunts and track vehicle and
airboat hunts on selected
wildlife management areas
(WMAs).
Worksheets are available
at FWC regional offices and
online at MyFWC.com/hunt-
ing under "Limited Entry
Hunts." The period for sub-
mitting applications to be
included in the random
dra-ings begins 10 -:a.m.
(EDTI .June 20 until July 7.
Applications may be submit-
ted through the Internet, at
tax collectors' offices or at
any license agent.
Applications are no longer
accepted by mail.
Mobility-impaired hunts
are for persons who require
special equipment. These
hunts are not intended for
hunters who have a Florida
Disabled Person Hunting and
Fishing Certificate, but
rather those who are perma-
nently confined to a wheel-
chair, persons who require
the use of mechanical aids
(crutches and walkers) to
walk or those with complete
single-leg amputations.
Another unique hunt is for
hunters 8-15 years old. Two
WMAs in the North Central
Region (Camp Blanding and
Andrews) offer opportunities
for non-hunting adults to
supervise young hunters on
public hunting areas where
the number of hunters and
the hunting areas are rigidly
controlled to provide an opti-
mum learning experience
and maximum safety. These
hunts are popular, and the
number of applicants
exceeds the number of
spaces available each year.
The new Lafayette Creek
WMA as well as Matanzas,


Andrews, Devil's Hammock
and Dinner Island WMAs will
offer family hunts this year.
Applicants age 18 or older
may apply for a permit. The
permit holder is required to
bring one to two children
ages 8-15. Unlike the youth
hunt, the family hunt allows
the adult supervisor to hunt
with the children.
A quota hunt permit will
be required to hunt quail on
the Blackwater WMA Hutton
Unit and Blackwater Field
Trial Area in the Northwest
Region. There are seven two-
day hunts available on the
Hutton Unit and two four-
day hunts on the Field Trial
Area. The quota is two groups
per hunt on the Hutton Unit
and three groups per hunt on
the Field Trial Area. A group
may consist of up to three
hunters. Shooting hours end
at 3 p.m., and the bag limit is
12 quail per group per day.
Wildlife management
areas in the southern part of
the state offer hunters an
unusual challenge because of
their open-marsh landscape.
Hunting these areas requires
special vehicles, and the FWC
has established quotas on
the number of vehicles
allowed. Permits to operate
track vehicles on
Rotenberger, Everglades and
Francis S. Taylor and Holey
Land WMAs, and permits to
operate airboats on
Everglades and Francis S.
Taylor WMA are issued in two
random drawings.
For more information on
how to apply for one of these
truly unique quota hunts,
visit MyFWC.com/hunting.






,ot News


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) directed
its scientists Wednesday to
proceed with the final phase
of reclassifying four imperiled
species manatees, bald
Eagles, gopher tortoises and
Panama City crayfish.
The final phase is to draw
up new management plans
for each species, based on
the species' needs.
Management plans typically
take a year to draft, and
includes public participation.
For two species, the FWC's
action reflects good news.
Bald eagles no longer are in
danger of extinction in the
foreseeable future. Once
Commissioners approve a
new management plan to
protect them into the future,
the FWC no longer will
include' them on the imper-
iled species list.
"What we're doing for
eagles is working," FWC
Executive Director Ken
Haddad said. "Our goal is for
all imperiled species to recov-
er to the point where we can
remove them from the list."
Bald eagles have estab-
lished 1,133 known nesting
territories in Florida, and
each territory has one or two
adult eagles. Forty years ago,
the whole country had about
400 nesting pairs.
Manatees, currently listed
as an endangered species,
have recovered to the point
they are no longer in immi-
nent danger of extinction,
although they still require
careful management.
Once their new manage-
ment plan is complete, the
FWC will reclassify them as


threatened. Haddad said the
new classification will not
result in less protection for
the species. He said protec-
tion measures are specific for
each species' needs, regard-


less of its classification.
Two other species that
haven't fared as well are
gopher tortoises and Panama
City crayfish. FWC
Commissioners approved


staff recommendations to
create new management
plans and continue the
process of reclassifying both
animals from species of spe-
cial concern to threatened.

Simpson's Auto Parts was sold June 8, 2006 by the Simpson family
after 51 years of operation in Blountstown in the same location. The
business was opened in 1955 by Crockett and Belle Simpson who were
joined a short while later by their son, Jackie Simpson. His three sons
later worked after school and remained involved in the store to the
present time.
We want to thank all our customers for their friendship, support and
business through the years. You have made it possible for us to
continue for over half a century and we are so grateful to you.
We appreciate all those who have worked with us at different times
over the years, and especially those who remained with us to the
present time. Lennie Cataldo has been with us for 34 years, Carolyn
Roberson for 18 years and John Hiers for 14 years continually and
periodically for years prior. Thanks for all those years of loyalty and
hard work.
The new owners are Joel Edwards and his wife Diana who will
continue to operate as a NAPA Auto Parts store. Lennie, John and
Carolyn will remain as employees.
Thanks to all who have given us the opportunity to serve you for so
many years!
Marie Simpson and sons,

Traffic stop leads

to arrest of Bristol

man on meth charges

A Bristol man landed in the
Calhoun County Jail Sunday
night after a traffic stop turned
up meth and other drugs.
Lewis David Carson III, 30,
was charged with possession of
meth, less than 20 grams of mar-
ijuana, prescription pills without
a prescription, a controlled sub-
stance, drug paraphernalia, and
a concealed firearm.
According to the Calhoun
County Sheriffs Office, Dep.
Bliss Moreau pulled Carson over
on SR 20 near Trammell Bridge
for careless driving. While
approaching the truck, Dep.
Moreau spotted a rifle on the seat
and had Carson step out of the
vehicle. As he did, Dep. Moreau
noticed a large caliber handgun
in the driver's side door and
Carson advised he didn't have a
concealed weapon permit. He
was subsequently placed under
arrest and an inventory search
was conducted on the vehicle.
Dep. Moreau discovered a hol-
lowed out pen tube with meth
residue on the driver's side sun
visor. A bag under the driver's
seat contained three clear plastic
bags, two of which had marijua-
na inside and the other with
burnt aluminum foil and filter
screens, commonly used in the
consumption of meth. A pill bot-
tle was found with four Lotomil
pills for which Carson didn't have
a prescription. Another bag con-
tained two smaller baggies with
meth residue.

Carson reportedly admitted
all the narcotics were his and he
was taken into custody. He
remained in the Calhoun County
Jail at press time.

Man jailed after

assaulting officer

at license checkpoint

A Blountstown man remained
behind bars at press time after
allegedly assaulting cops at a
drivers license checkpoint
Sunday night.
Tyree Johnson, 37, was
charged with DUI, resisting
arrest with violence, tampering
with evidence, and battery on a
law enforcement officer.
According to the Blountstown
Police Department, officers were
conducting a license and equip-
ment check on River Street
around 8 p.m. when Johnson
approached in an SUV. When
Sgt. Fred Tanner and Maj.
Rodney Smith asked Johnson for
his license, he allegedly opened
his wallet, pulled out a Florida ID
card, then removed a piece of
brown paper and unwrapped a
small clear plastic packet con-
taining a white powder sub-
stance that appeared to be
cocaine. Johnson reportedly
attempted to swallow the sub-
stance as the officers grabbed
him and ordered him to spit the
packet out. A struggle ensued
and Johnson struck Maj. Smith

much more. She is always
willing to give her time and
we truly appreciate her."

zation, to continue to provide

nesses and their loved ones.

SArrow of
Truth
by Rev. R. W. Waterman ,

Make A Bonfire
Acts 19:19-20
Our yards are so beautiful in
the spring. Yet just a few
months ago it didn't look this
way. Winter storms left branch-
es and sticks everywhere, leaves
are all over the place, pine cones
have covered the yards. Last
year's dead weeds stand like
stiff, gray sentinels along the
fence rows.
Families spend many hours
raking, cleaning, hauling, and
piling dead grass, weeds, sticks
and pine cones. Then a quick,
hot bonfire burned away the
refuse, leaving an open invitation
for spring to arrive in all its glory.
Sometimes, in order to open
the way for God to teach, help,
and bless us, we must get rid of
the old, dead refuse in our lives.
In today's Scripture lesson, a
great blessing awaited the early
Christians when, in obedience,
they got rid of that which might
keep their path to God obscured.
Is there something choking
your spiritual growth? Whatever
it may be, burn it up, let it go!
Then see what new and bountiful
blessing God sends your way.

and entertainment and won
some terrific door prizes,"

Services Kristin Bennett said.

Healthy Startfunding to

benefit Calhoun, Liberty


Last week's conference
report showed a $6,559,882
increase to Florida's Healthy
Start program. These general
revenue dollars will draw an
additional $4,558,562 in fed-
eral funds for the program.
Healthy Start is a success-
ful statewide program that
serves at-risk pregnant
women and infants, who are
referred by their physicians,
hospitals or others. Healthy
Start nurses and social work-
ers coordinate care and pro-
vide support services to the
family. The additional dollars
will allow services for about
20,000 more families.
Members of the thirty-
three Healthy Start coalitions
in the state have campaigned
for an increase for the past
three years through their
statewide group, the Florida
Association of Healthy Start
Coalitions. We are so busy
with program education arnd
awareness that we had to
learn through trial and error
how to affect the legislative
process," said Patty
McWhirter, Executive
Director of the Osceola
County Coalition.
"Legislators are involved with
their local coalitions and
understood the need for more
services. We are thrilled,"
McWhirter stated.
Spink states this is a
major win for the. women of
child bearing years and
infants under the age of three
for our rural service area
because of poor economics
throughout the region.
Chipola Healthy Start con-
tracts with Calhoun and
Liberty Counties Health
Department to provide serv-
ices. The dollars are very vis-
ible in your community,
states Spink. The state dol-
lars are spent very wisely and
utilized well to provide cut-
ting edge services on a very
limited budget to many
Calhoun and Liberty County
,pregnant women. When
Chipola Healthy Start first
acquired Calhoun and
Liberty counties, few women
were receiving very limited
services. In today's Healthy
Start, Calhoun and Liberty
County Health Department


Healthy Start personnel are
creative and have actually
brought in other Healthy
Start Care Coordinators from
within the state for training
and are training them on how
intensified services can be
delivered creatively. Spink
states, "Creative envisioning
has helped more women
deliver healthier infants from
a healthier mom population."
Healthy Start has not
received an increase in state,
funding since the program
began in 1992. As a result,
the program served 16,000
(27%) fewer pregnant women
and 18,400 (42%) fewer
infants in 2003/04 compared
to 1995/96. Births in the
state during .the same period
increased by more than 20%.
The 33 community-based
Healthy Start Coalitions have
used state dollars wisely.
They have successfully lever-
aged state dollars with local,
federal and Medicaid funding
to provide services that are
not supported by program
funds. In 2003/04, coalitions
leveraged more than $22 mil-
lion in additional funding for
problems such as teen preg-
nancy, single parenthood,
health disparities, substance
abuse, uninsured pregnant
women, and SIDS.
Please feel free to contact
Janet Spink, Program
Director, if you require more
information about your local
Healthy Start services.
Chipola Healthy Start pro-
vides 'services to pregnant
women and children under
the age of three to Calhoun,
Holmes, Jackson, Liberty,
and Washington Counties.
"Family Affair"

meeting will be

meeting will be held this

Library. All interested par-
ties are invited to attend.
