build police station


BY KELLI PEACOCK :
News Editor
Blountstown City Council
members voted unanimously at
their regular meeting Tuesday
night to move forward with plans '
for a new police station.
"[The Council] is advertising '
for architectural services," says
Police Chief Glenn Kimbrel. Blountstown City Counc
"Once we get the architectural new police department
.services on board, they will
design a building which includes blueprints and then
we'll try to set a start date."
Marianha architect Paul Donofro submitted a design
proposal to the City Council at a previous meeting and
Council members agreed to pursue that design style.
"We're wanting to develop the theme that the downtown
revitalization team is trying to project the city to look like
so we'll all be uniform," Chief Kimbrel remarks. "Of


cil members are moving forward with plans to construct a
it at the corner of Highways 20 and 71.
course, that's a takeoff from the old courthouse."
Donofro's rendering included a new City Hall, howev-
er, the Council has opted to wait on constructing that
facility. Chief Kimbrel says that wasn't an option with the
police station due to the deterioration of the building.
"It's not a want thing, it's a need thing," he points out. "If
we're going to continue to operate the police department,
we need something to work out of."

Traffic crash


Three years ago as a sen-
ior at Liberty County High
School, Cassie enrolled in the
Certified Nursing Assistant
program and embarked on a
career at Blountstown Health
and Rehabilitation Center
immediately after graduation.
Her co-workers there are
stunned by her tragic death.
"We saw her transition
from a teenager to a young
woman," says Michelle Mears
who serves as a unit manag-
er at the center. "She carried
herself very professionally.
Her family has a lot to be
proud of with the way she
carried herself here. The res-
idents loved her. She will be
missed by the staff of the east
wing very much. She had
quite a sense of humor."
In honor of Cassie, a
memorial plaque is being
placed on a wall in the east
wing where she worked.
According to Mears,
Cassie became a newlywed
about six months ago. She
leaves behind her husband,
Lance T. Dabney of Bristol;
her parents, Richard "Ricky"
and Tammy O'Bryan of
Bristol; one sister, Miranda
Ashlen O'Bryan of Bristol;


and a host of other relatives
and friends. She was laid to
rest Friday at Lake Mystic
Cemetery.
Her complete obituary
appears on page 14.

With fuel prices soaring...



'Farm to Fuel' initiative underway


Escalating fuel prices are
impacting not only the
motoring public, but the
state's agriculture industry
as well, according to Florida
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson.
To help consumers gauge
gasoline prices around
Florida, Bronson has
unveiled a web site that will
provide weekly updates on
the average price of regular,
mid-grade and premium
gasoline, as well as diesel
fuel, in 20 Florida major met-
ropolitan areas. The web site
is located at
http ://www. Florida-
Agriculture. com/gasprices.
"This tool will enable
motorists to see how their
area compares with others
around the state," Bronson
said. "It will also assist the
public in planning travel for
business or pleasure."
Bronson said the state's
44,000 farmers have seen
fuel prices increase by a
reported 68 cents a gallon in
the past year, adding well in
excess of $100 million to
their agricultural production
costs. Gro\vers:-..are highly
dependent on fuel for opera-
tions on tWeir farms. trans-
porting their crops to market,
and to'receive shipments of
seeds, plants, fertilizer and
other materials they need to
operate their farms. and
ranches. Costs for all of
those activities have
increased.

world with the 280 commer-,
cial crops they produce, are
having a tough time,"
Bronson said. "We in Florida
and throughout the country
have the safest and most
affordable food supply in the
world, and our producers are
doing all that .they can to
absorb these increased
costs."
In an effort to ease both
Florida and the nation's
dependency on foreign oil,
Bronson is spearheading an
effort to have Florida farmers
grow fuel crops to support
this production.
Known as "Farm to Fuel,"
the initiative stems from the
"25 x '25" vision, which calls
for 25 percent of the nation's
energy needs to be produced
by America's farms, ranches
and forests by the year 2025.
"Florida is well positioned
to be a leader in this effort
because of our available
farmland and our mild cli-
mate," Bronson said. "The
goal is to reduce the coun-
try's dependency on foreign
oil, and at the same time to
provide alternative crops that
our farmers can grow to keep


our industry viable."
In January, Bronson held
his first "Farm to Fuel" meet-
ing in Tallahassee attended
by about 60 representatives
of Florida's agriculture
industry, companies interest-
ed in building processing
plants to convert crops to fuel
and scientists who have
developed processes for con-
verting crops to ethanol or
bio-diesel. Plans are being
made for a major conference
on the subject in late sum-
mer.
Governor Jeb Bush and
the Florida Cabinet, which
includes Bronson, have
adopted a resolution in sup-
port of the "25 x '25" vision,
encouraging the production
of renewable energy and fuels
by Florida farms and ranches
to help meet the state and
nation's future energy needs.
At Bronson's urging, the
Florida Legislature provided
$5 million this year for grants
in support of bio-energy
research and demonstration
projects in addition to $10
million slated for other
renewable energy technolo-
gies.


"We see this initiative as
holding real promise to assist
our country in reducing its
dependence on foreign oil
and in giving our growers
alternative crops that may be
the difference in whether or
not they keep their land in
agriculture," Bronson said.

Biography:
Few rookies have impacted the NASCAR
NEXTEL,Cup Series the way Kasey Kahne
did in 2004. At the start of the season, he
was an unknown rookie. By the end of the
season, Kahne was a household name.
Whether it was his hard-charging style on
the race track or the year-long media fren-
zy, Kahne's popularity skyrocketed over the
course of the season. After a successful
rookie season in 2004 which saw Kahne
record five second-place finishes, the only
question was at what point during the sea-
son the driver from Enumclaw,, Wash.,
Would get his first win. Kasey Kahne
claimed his first career NASCAR NEXTEL
Cup Series victory in 2005, ap impressive
win from the pole at 'Richmond in May.

said that after Gateway, the Busch and Truck series will
both use unleaded fuel the following two weekends. As
for Nextel Cup cars, unleaded fuel will be used in the
Automobile Racing Club of America event atTalladega
on the weekend of the Oct. 8 Cup race. Cup teams can
run a restricto-plate engine in that event to evaluate
the performance of the unleaded fuel.

Florida Department of
Health (DOH) officials
emphasize the importance of
Florida's residents and visi-
tors to protect themselves
against mosquito-borne dis-
eases. Throughout the year,
DOH works with partner
agencies, including the
Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services, the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission, mosquito con-
trol agencies and state uni-
versities, to monitor for the
presence of mosquitoes car-
rying illnesses.
"During the summer
months, Florida experiences
an increase in its mosquito
populations," said DOIH
Secretary M. Rony Francois,
M.D., M.S.P.H., Ph.D.,
"Mosquito-borne illnesses are
entirely preventable by taking
a few simple steps to avoid
mosquito bites."
Symptoms of West Nile
(WN) virus, St. Louis
Encephalitis (SLE), and
Eastern Equine Encephalitis
(EEE) may include headache,
fever, fatigue, dizziness,
weakness and confusion.
Physicians should contact
their County Health
Department if they suspect
an individual may have a
mosquito-borne illness. DOH
laboratories provide testing
services for physicians treat-
ing patients with clinical
signs of mosquito-borne dis-
eases.
SDOH continues to advise
Floridians to remain diligent
in protecting themselves from
mosquito bites by following
the "5 D's," which include:
V Dusk and Dawn Avoid
being outdoors when mosqui-
toes are seeking blood. For
many' species, this is during
the dusk and dawn hours.
/ Dress Wear clothing
that covers most of your skin.
V DEET When the poten-
tial exists for exposure to
mosquitoes, repellents con-
taining DEET (N,N-diethyl-
meta-toluamide, or N,N-
diethyl-3-methylbenzamide)
are recommended. Picaridin
and oil of lemon eucalyptus
are other repellent options.
V Drainage Check
around your home to rid the
area of standing water, whiclf
is where mosquitoes can lay
their eggs.

Tips on Repellent Use
V Always read label direc-
tions carefully for the
approved usage before apply-
ing a repellent to skin. Some
repellants are not suitable for
children.
/ Products with concen-
trations of up to 30 percent
DEET are generally recom-
mended. Other potential
mosquito repellents, .as
reported by the Centers for.
Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC) in April
2005, contain picaridin or oil
of lemon eucalyptus. These
products are generally avail-
able at local pharmacies.
Look for active ingredients to
be listed pn the product label.
V Apply insect repellent to
exposed skin, or onto cloth-
ing, but not under clothing.
V In protecting children,
read label instructions to be
sure the repellent is age-
appropriate. According to
the CDC, mosquito repellents
containing oil of lemon euca-


lyptus should not be used on
children under the age of 3
years. DEET is not recom-
mended on children younger
than 2 months old.
V Infants should be kept
indoors or mosquito netting
should be used over carriers
when mosquitoes are pres-
ent.
V Avoid applying repel-
lents to the hands of chil-
dren. Adults should apply
repellent first to their own
hands and then transfer it to
the child's skin and clothing.
V If additional protection
is necessary, apply a perme-
thrin repellent directly to
your clothing. Again, always
follow the manufacturer's
directions.


Symptoms of West
Nile (WN) virus, St.
Louis Encephalitis
(SLE), and Eastern


Equine En
(EEE) ma
headache,


rcephalitis


:y i


include
fever,


fatigue, dizziness,
weakness and confu-
sion.


Tips on Eliminating
Mosquito Breeding Sites
Elimination of breeding
sites is one of the keys to pre-
vention.
V Clean out eaves,
troughs and gutters.
V Remove old tires or drill
holes in those used in play-
grounds to drain.
V Turn over or remove
empty plastic pots.
V Pick up all beverage
containers and cups.
v& Check tarps on boats or
other equipment that may
collect water.
V Pump out bilges on
boats.
V Replace water in bird-
baths and pet or other animal
feeding dishes at least once a
week.


V Change water in plant
trays, including hanging
plants, at least once a week.
V Remove vegetation or
obstructions in drainage
ditches that prevent the flow
of water.
Additionally, officials
encourage anyone who dis-
covers a dead bird to report it
via the Internet. The bird
mortality reporting system is
located on the Florida Fish


and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's Web site at:
www.MyFWC.com/bird/. If
people do not have access to
the Internet, they may report
dead birds to their county
health department or local
FWC office.
For more information, visit
the DOH Website at
www.doh.state.fl.us or con-
tact your local county health
department.

Blountstown wins Liberty tournament
After finishing their first regular season of machine pitch baseball, this scrappy 6nd talented
group of young athletes (ages 6, 7 and 8) from Blountstown entered the Liberty County Sports
Tournament, held May 25-27 in Bristol, and brought home the first place trophy. The team battled
100 degree heat and some tough competition -- without their head coach Emory Home.
Assistant coach Terry Blair stepped up to the challenge with assistance from coaches Michael
Bryant and Tom Woodham. Tremendous support from family and friends was also provided a
total team effort. On Thursday, Blountstown beat Bristol 13-3 and lost to a tough Wewahitchka
team 14-13 on Friday. Saturday, the team defeated another group of talented athletes from
Blountstown 14-0, then took on Wewa and beat them 9-1. The championship game against
Wewa was a nail-biter and heart stopper. It included some fine defensive plays, aggressive base
running and a very unique grand slam homerun, to take the lead, by shortstop Chasen "ChiChi" -
Roulhac. Blountstown won 8-6. Team members included Ridge Dietz, Kenny Godwin, Sawyer
"Chainsaw" O'Bryan, Seth "Hamburger" Brown, Jared Wainwright, Dylan Lee, Shad Johnson,
Malaac Johnson, Derek Eberly, Jake Woodham, Drew Bryant, Bryson Home and Chasen
Roulhac. Coaches, from left, Michael Bryant, Terry Blair and Tom Woodham.

Gator permits

sold out after

2155 respond
In less than four hours, all
4,406 of the state's alligator
harvest permits were issued
to 2,155 hunters wanting to
experience the thrill of alliga-
tor hunting.
Despite a computer glitch
that blocked permit sales for
about an hour, permits sold
out between 10 a.m. and 2
p.m. June 15.
This marks one of the few
times hunters have gobbled
up all available permits since
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) began offering
statewide alligator hints in
1988. The FWC issues per-
mits on a first-comet first-
served basis. Last year, the
FWC issued only about 2,800
of the 4,300 available per-
mits because of a shortage of
applicants.
This year's season will
include 41 additional hunt
days and will run Aug. 15
through Nov. 1.

alligator hunting,' visit

Chipola Healthy Start


tips on SIDS prevention


Chipola Healthy'Start has
kicked off a Back to Sleep
campaign and is offering tips
on lowering your baby's risk
of Sudden Infant Death
Syndrome (SIDS).
Here are 10 ways that you
and others who care for your
baby can reduce the risk of
SIDS.
1. Alh\ays place your baby
.on his or her back to sleep,
for -aps and at night. The
back si-ep position is the
safest, and every sleep time
counts.
2. Place your baby on a
firm sleep surface, such as
on a safety-approved crib
mattress, covered by a fitted
sheet. Never place your baby
to sleep on pillows, quilts,
sheepskins, or other soft sur-
faces.
3. Keep soft objects, toys;
and loose bedding out of your
baby's sleep area. Don't use
pillows, blankets, quilts,
sheepskins, and pillow-like
crib bumpers in your baby's
sleep area, and keep any
other items away from your
baby's face.
4. Do not allow smoking
around your baby. Don't
smoke before or after the
birth of your baby, and don't
let others smoke around your
baby.
5. Keep your baby's sleep
area close to, but separate
from, where you and others
sleep. Your baby should not
sleep in a bed or on a couch
or armchair with adults or
other children, but he or she
can sleep in the same room
as you. If you bring the baby
into bed with you to breast-
feed, put him or her back in a
separate sleep area, such as
a bassinet, crib, cradle, or a
bedside cosleeper (infant bed
that attaches to an adult bed)
when finished.
6. Think about using a
clean, dry pacifier when plac-
ing the infant down to sleep,
but don't force the baby 'to
take it. (If you are breastfeed-
ing your baby, wait until your
child is :1 month old or is
used to: breastfeeding before
using a pacifier.)
7. Do not let your baby.
overheat during sleep. Dress
your baby in light sleep cloth-
ing, and keep the room at a
temperature that is comfort-
able' for an adult.
8. Avoid products that
claim to reduce the risk of
SIDS because most have not
been tested for effectiveness
or safety.
9. Do not use home moni-
tors to reduce the risk of


SIDS. If you have questions
about using monitors for
other conditions talk to your
health care provider.
10. Reduce the chance
that flat spots will develop on
your baby's head: provide
"Tummy Time" when your
baby is awake and someone
is watching; change the
direction that your baby lies
in the crib from one week to
the next: and avoid too much
time in car seats, carriers,
and bouncers.

Be ready before disaster strikes


Hurricane prep tips for



special needs individuals


SDo you or a family member
have a disability? Will you be
responsible for the care of an
elderly adult in the case of an
emergency or. disaster? Do
you have small children that
will need extra supplies and
care in the event of a hurri-
cane? If the answer to any of
these questions is "yes," then
you should consider now
what extra steps to take in
your disaster plan.
As the 2006 hurricane
season begins, all levels of
government, from city coun-
cils to the Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA)
and Florida's State
Emergency Response Team
(SERT), are working vigor-
ously to prepare for potential.
storms that may strike
Florida in the coming
months. An aspect of pre-
paredness that cannot be
overstated, however, is that of
individual preparedness.
"Preparedness is a respon-
sibilitv that FEMA aggres-
sively promotes and that
must happen at -all levels -
from the individual to the
local, state and federal gov-
ernment," said Scott Morris,
FEMA's Director of Florida
Long-Term Recovery. "It. is
vital not only to prepare, but
also to prepare for any spe-
cial needs that you or a mem-
ber of your family may have."
Florida law requires: that
evacuation assistance be
available to individuals with
special needs., If you require
special assistance and have
no family or friends available
to,help in the event of an
evacuation, you may qualify
for evacuation assistance
services. If this is the case,
you should register with the
local emergency management
agency before disaster
strikes.
"It is critical that Florida's
most vulnerable residents
and their caregivers take the
time now to get a plan," said
Department of Elder Affairs;
Secretary Carole Green.
'Those with special needs
often.' require additional
measures of preparation,
such as medication or special
transportation. By planning
ahead of a storm, all of our
residents can remain safe
and secure this season."

General considerations for
those with family members


with disabilities:
Make prior arrangements
with your physician or check
with your oxygen supplier
about ,emergency plans for
those on respirators or, other
electric-powered medical
equipment. Be sure to have
electrical back-up for any


medical equipment.

Considerations for those
who are responsible for the
care of senior citizens:
iCa Remember to help sen-
iors who live alone. They may
d need help evacuating from
a their home, preparing for a

Cong. Boyd battles for rural




America's communication needs


WASHINGTON, D.C.-
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida) has pushed
through an amendment to
the Communications
Opportunity, Promotion, and
Enhancement (COPE) Act
(HR 5252) that will help
ensure that all Americans,
regardless of where they live,
have access to affordable and
reliable communications
services.
The amendment preserves
the Federal Communications
Commission's authority to
require Voice over Internet
Protocol (VoIP) providers to
contribute to the Universal
Service Fund (USF) and pay
appropriate intercarrier com-
pensation fees just like every
other voice service provider.
"Rural America cannot be
left behind when it comes to
national policy decisions,"
said Congressman Boyd, Co-
Chair of the Congressional


Rural Caucus. "This amend-
ment upholds the standards
of fair service by requiring
providers who use the com-
munications network to
maintain its infrastructure
through contributions to the
USF. In turn, the USF pro-
vides support to schools,
libraries, and healthcare
providers in rural areas thus
producing a better quality of
life for our rural communities
in North Florida."
The Universal Service
Fund was created to offset
the added costs of providing
telephone services to rural
areas, which require more
infrastructures and have
fewer customers than urban
areas. The program, which is
funded by a federal phone
tax, awards grants to tele-
phone companies for invest-
ment in rural infrastructure
and for subsidizing rural cus-
tomers. Contributions to the

USF:
V Assist communications
providers with building and
maintaining networks in high
cost rural areas in all 50
states.
V Help low-income
Americans who would other-
wise be unable to afford tele-
phone service.
V Provide support to
schools and libraries so they
can receive affordable access
to telecommunications serv-
ices.
V Equip public and non-
profit rural healthcare


providers with timely access
to telecommunications serv-
ices.
"Throughout rural
America, the USF is allowing
small communities to
address their needs while still
maintaining their small town
values and way of life," Boyd
stated. "This amendment will
help ensure that North
Floridians, even in the most
rural settings, can access the
same broadband capabilities
that businesses and citizens
in urban areas already
enjoy."

Candace Gerber receives


Presidential Service Award


Hospice of the Emerald
Coast recently celebrated
National Volunteer Week with
a banquet on April 18 at
Christian Center Church in
Marianna.
Hospice could not exist
without our faithful volun-
teers. Whether visiting
patients,, working in the office
or making phone calls or
crafts their work is valuable.
Volunteers attending the
banquet were given Hospice
volunteer T-shirts, creative
memories photo albums and
goody bags. This year's top
award went to Candace
Gerber, who received the
Presidential Service Award.


In January 2002,
President Bush called on all
Americans to dedicate at
least 2 years or 4,000 hours
(in their lifetime) to serve oth-
ers at home or abroad.
.Candace is dedicated to vol-
unteer service and she strives
to build a culture of citizen-
ship, service and responsibil-
ity within our community.
Her everyday acts of kind-
ness make our community a
better place. She brings
encouragement and peace to
everyone she meets.
Candace received a $100
savings bond from People
First Community Bank.

Covenant Hospice hosts

banquet for volunteers


Covenant Hospice in
Marianna recently honored
its volunteers for their dedi-
cation and commitment at its
annual Volunteer
Appreciation Banquet.
The Heart of Hospice
Volunteer of the Year Award
for 2005 was presented to
Dorothy Eckenroth. Last
year, Ms. Eckenroth went
before the Florida legislature
on behalf of Covenant
Hospice to speak about the
"for-profit vs. not-for-profit
hospice" issue. She also par-
ticipates in statewide Faith in
Action-meetings for- Covenant
Hospice and volunteers, in
.many areas.
"'Whenever we need some-
one -to h elp, -D6ro-thy-- is-
there," said Barbara Bentley,
Volunteer Manager. "She 'is
involved in our fundraising
events, 11th hour program,


administrative work and so
much more. She is always
willing to give her time and
we truly appreciate her."
Volunteers are a vital part
of Covenant Hospice. In
2005, 1,365 Covenant
Hospice volunteers con-
tributed nearly 132,000
hours of service, saving the,
organization more than two
million dollars. The contribu-
tions made by volunteers
allow Covenant Hospice, a
non-profit organization, to
continue to provide a very
special kind of care to
patients with hif--liniani ill-
nesses and their loved ones.
If you are 'interested in
becoming a volunteer or
,would like information about
hospice services, please call
Barbara Bentley at 482-'
