CML CASE


School Bd.


settles with


Kik Sims


for $50k
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
The Calhoun County
School Board opted last
week to settle a civil lawsuit
filed by former Altha teacher
Kristin "Kiki" Sims for
$50,000.
Sims resigned from Altha
School back in January
2004 and alleged she had
endured verbal attacks from
Principal Harriet Peacock
after she stood up for special
education students she felt
were being excluded from
regular classroom activities.
She later filed a discrimina-
tion lawsuit in which she
alleged she was retaliated
against because she spoke
tp for the ESE children. She
further claimed she was dis-
criminated against because
of a medical condition.
A mediation was held last
Tuesday and the $50,000
settlement was reached.
"I'm. glad it's over," Sims
tells The County Record.
Her attorney. Marie
Mattox. remarks. "It wvas a
good result for her.
Everything ended amicably."

ELECTION 2006




VOTERS CHOOSE CHANGE


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor


Every government entity in
Calhoun County will be wel-
coming new faces as voters
chose change in several races.
Marsha Harpool made his-
tory Tuesday night when she
became the first female and
the first African American
mayor in the City of Marsha Harpool
Blountstown.
"I always wanted to make
history!" she tells The County Record with a
laugh, adding, "But I'm here to do for everybody.
I intent to provide leadership to the City Council
that holds the Council and city staff accountable
to City residents. Blountstown
city government should be
transparent and residents
should not have to wonder
about what and why decisions
% were made."
,-,- ^One of Harpool's goals is to
to allow residents to watch
local government meetings on
television from home. She also
plans to work on affordable
housing needs, support eco-
TonyShoemake nomic development through
the Blountstown Greenway,
and redevelop River Street.
Joining her on the Council will be Tony
Shoemake who has served as Chairman of
Blountstown Main Street for the past two years.
"I would like to thank all the voters and let
them know that I will work hard not to let them
down," Shoemake tells The County Record. "My
goals for City Council are simple. To work togeth-
er with citizens and community organizations, to


offer a helping hand and a
generous ear to anyone with
concerns and new ideas that
could help make our City the
best place to work, raise a fami- 4
fly and engage in business. I
also will be out in the commu-
nity seeing for myself the prob-
lems that our residents face
Our local businesses and our
neighborhoods, go hand in
hand. The City Council should
not be a roadblock, but a Kelly E. King
leader to a better community."
Kelly E. King will join the
Calhoun County School Board,
representing District 2, after
defeating longtime board mem-
ber Volena Barfield.
"I would just like to thank
everyone for the support I
received during the election
process," says King. "I'm look-
ing forward to working with
the existing board members'
and administrators on their
Danny Hassig ongoing efforts to provide the
best education to our students.
I feel like with your continued
support, we can have a posi- y
tive influence on the future of .
the Calhoun County Sc hool |
System."
King has several goals she'd -0
like to accomplish this term. in
"I'd like to finalize plans 1t
improve facilities," she
remarks. "Many of our schools
are overcrowded and have old .
buildings. The board needs to
submit a workable plan to the T th
Department of Education that Tim Smith


will benefit all schools and
their respective communities.
I'd also like to see'us negotiate -
better benefit packages for
faculty and staff. The board
needs to explore options that
will allow more affordable
insurance premiums for our
employees. Finally, I'd like to
see us implement a variety of
vocational programs for our
students. We need to better
prepare our students who do Dan Wyrick.
not intend to go to college to
help provide them skills that will help them
secure their future."
Danny Hassig is another new member of the
School Board. He was elected to represent
District 5, a post held by Doyle Daniels who did
not seek re-election.
"I would like to thank all the voters for coming
out and voting in the last election," says Hassig.
"I was honored and humbled with their trust in
me as the voice of District 5
and the future of .our chil-
dren."
Hassig has set his sights on
achieving several goals during
his first term. "I'm devoted to
providing our children with a
first class quality education,
facilities, vocational programs,
and the tools needed to com-
pete in a global economy. I'd
also like to implement educa-
tional programs that offer our Truman Grant
children the best education um ran
available in the U.S. and the
education our children so much deserve. I'd like
to see a Jr. ROTC implemented within the school

If you thought it
took a little too long to T-
get election results last .
Tuesday night, you
weren't alone. Officials
with the Calhoun ..
Coutmt Superxisor olf i
Elections Office along
with elections offices,,'.
across Florida tend to iiM
agree.
In recent years, vot-
ers and candidates Judge Kevin
were thrilled at the Loromore oan
speed with which Senteritt, sort
results were Mondov to sett
announced...some-
times within minutes of the polls clos-
ing after the new scanned ballot sys-
tem came on the scene. With the addi-
tion of the touchscreen system this
year, it seemed the results would be
reported just as quickly. However. it
was two hours after the polls closed
before totals were released.
Margie Laramore. Calhoun
County's Supervisor of Elections. says
state officials decided this year that
results shouldn't be announced until
all precincts are available including
absentees. "We're not happy with the
new changes either," says Laramore.
"We liked it the old way because that's
the way the voters want it. But the vot-
ers were very patient. We're trying to
see if there's anything that can be
worked out [before the next election].


Grover. Supervisor of Electrons AMorgie

through Althoa allots prior to a recount
Ile a close Town Council race.
That would be wonderful.-
Laramore had made arrangements
for the large voting results board to be
placed in front of the courthouse, but
inclement weather interfered. She says
voters can expect to see it in
November.
Laramore is grateful to all the voters
who cooperated with new rules that
require all those casting ballots to
present photo identification. "Thanks
to the voters for bringing picture IDs
with signatures." she says. "We were
able to have results in all those races
and that made it possible. We had a
few provisional ballots, but they will
not make a difference in any race. If
people had not brought their photo
IDs, it could have been a different
story."

The County Record, SEPTEMBER 13, 2006, Page 2


Dear Editor and all
my fellow citizens of the
City of Blountstown:
I am sure that we have all
noticed the outrageous
demand that has been put
upon us all to pay for a mis-
take made by city hall for an
error that they made six
months ago!
They say that there was a
computation error for three
months of 2006 Feb.,
March, and April and that
the cost of gas was higher
than we were billed for at the
time. Here we are six months
later and they are just now
becoming aware of a billing
error?!
I'd like all my fellow citi-
zens to stop and think for a
moment. What happens if
we, as individuals, make, a
mistake in paying our bill?
The city does not care! They
will shut you down no
water, no gas, no electric and
all the other charges that
they tac on. They simply shut
us down! And when we ask
why, they say we did not pay
our bill in a timely fashion.
Then we have to put down
double our security deposit
(on which they pay no inter-
est regardless of how long
they hold it) and then pay
reconnect fees, etc.
If we are elderly, in ill
health, or have a family with
young children or elderly par-
ents that rely on us to meet
their daily
requirements...what do we
do? Do we give in to the City
of Blountstown and grumble,
but pay what .they ask
because we feel we have no
choice? OR do we finally say,
"Enough! You have. finally
outraged us to a point where
we demand accounting!"
This error is six months


old. How tired are you of
hearing the phrase "comput-
er error" or "computer
glitch"? It is not the machine
that makes the error, it is the
brain of whomever is
inputting the information. It
may be a simple matter of
transposing a few numbers.

If I make a mistake, it is I
who must fix it. If you make a
mistake, you must fix it. But
if the city makes a mistake
we all are expected to fix it!
If you do shut everything
off on me because I refuse to
pay for your mistake of six
months ago, so be it.
However, let me say this: If
you can prove it in a court of
law that I indeed owe you for
services rendered, then I will
pay my debts honorably. But
beware of the Pandora's box
you've only lifted the lid on! It
may just come back and bite
you where and when you
least expect it.
I am an American and as
such I have the same rights
as everyone else. I expect no
more, but certainly no less.

Lillian Jarvis
Blountstown

Dear Editor,
I would like to thank
everyone that helped with
Hunter on Saturday. I would
like to especially thank Pam,
Savell, Tami Terry, and Curt
Capps. These three people
helped us make sure he got
taken care of. This commu-
nity is a wonderful place to
live. We have had so many
calls and people coming by to
check on him. To thank
everyone would be impossi-
ble.
Thank you,
Tim, Greta and Family

cipline, leadership, team-
work, integrity, and generally
more scholarship opportuni-

iors."
District 3 School Board
member Tim Smith was re-
elected for a third term to his
post.
"I would just like to say
thank you very much to the
voters for their votes and
support," he says. "It makes
me feel good to have that
support. I'll be available to
them to do what's important
for our children and school
system. I'll be a mouthpiece
for the people."
Smith says he is proud to
represent such an excellent
school district and he hopes
to see even more improve-
ments in his next term. "I will
do what I can to help the
school system stay top notch
in the state. Hopefully, we
can do some new projects
like new wings at Carr School
and get rid of the portables.
I'd also like to bring closure
to this EPA problem at Altha
and get our children back in
that building."
Dan Wyrick will be a new
addition to the County
Commission after defeatinei
Earl Hunt in the District 2
race.

"I'd like to give God the
glory," says Wyrick. "I want
to thank everybody for com-
ing out and supporting me.
I'm humbled by the turnout
and the overwhelming sup-
port I received. I'm glad our
community has chosen to
have a positive change."
As for his goals, Wyrick
says, "One of the major
things I'm really focusing on
as far as what the people I
came in contact with want is
jobs. I'm trying to bring jobs
into Calhoun County and
working on our infrastruc-
ture. The second thing I'm
interested in looking into is
somehow helping with prop-
erty tax relief. I understand
prop taxes are going up. The


third thing is working with,
our fire departments so we
can get some homeowners
insurance relief. Insurance
rates are up and we've got to
work with fire departments to
get some relief to our home-
owners. Our fire departments
need a lot of help and sup-
port from our county com-
mission and the community
in order to give better fire
protection to our communi-
ties."
Truman Grant retained
his District 4 seat on the
County Commission and will
enter his sixth term in office.
"I've seen many come and
go," he points out. "I feel real
good with the experience I've
got and I believe I can be a lot


of help to the new commis--'
sioners. I would like to thank
my voters and supporters for
the confidence they've put in-
me once again."

Grant has several projects::
he'd like to make happen inr
his next term. "My county-,
wide goals would be con-,,
struction of a new jail. I'd like'
to see it completed. I'd like to
see Mason Road and
Bullhead Bay Road paved.-:
District projects would be the'2
completion of Cooper's ParkC'
and Clay Mary. I would like,
to see widening of Hwy. 69;
South."
Watch for interviews with.
Altha's new officials in next
week's edition.

Tigers win thriller over NFC, 21-17


The Blountstown Tigers
have become accustomed to
winning and they like it.
Tiger fans can look back a
few years and remember
when no lead was safe for the
Tigers and they would some-
how find a way to lose. The
new and improved Tigers
refuse to lose and come up
with big plays late in the
game to help them win.
Tiger fans were treated to
an exciting game Friday night
in Tallahassee as the Tigers
tangled with always tough
North Florida Christian.
Hard hitting defense, big
pass plays and hard running
by both teams kept fans on
their feet.
"We beat them at home
last year and knew they'd be
ready for us on their home
field. They were a lot more


Coaches Greg Jordanh

That one was probably
worth the price of admission,
The Tigers once again "refuse
to lose", and find a way to win
a close ballgame, The see saw
battle that saw BHS score
first to take the lead, then
North Florida Christian
answered vtth 10 points and
the Tiaers came back with a
touchdown to take a 14-10
S halftime lead.. NFC scored in
' the 3rd quarter to lead 17-14
until the, Tigers final score.
This was a greathigh school
football game. .trading, blows
for the full four quarters.
NFC;s final attempt fell in the
endzone as time expired.
I want to take a moment to
thank the players for not giv-
ing up when they could have


physical than last year. This
was a real good test for us
playing under adversity,"
coach Greg Jordan said
Monday.
"Our offensive line is get-
ting better at protecting our
passer and they did a gbod
job Friday night. Defensively,
we're playing well, despite a
busted coverage that gave
NFC an easy touchdown,"
Jordan noted.
After stopping NFC on
their first two possessions,
the Tigers drove 84 yards in 8
plays. Quarterback Cory Cox
had three big completions in
the drive, one to brother
Chase Cox for 21 and two to
Jon Lockhart of 25 and 20.
The second connection to
Lockhart put the Tigers up 7-
0 after Jared King's PAT.
NFC responded a few plays


Friday night. They overcame
;a lot of adversity throughout
the ,game but continued to
Splay like champions. Thank
you to the fans for making
the trip to Tallahassee.- You
were probably, the difference.
The players look to you for
strength when 'they are
exhausted late in ballgames.
Believe-me fans, your pres-
ence does make a difference.
We will need your support
this week as the Tigers travel
to Vernon. Vernon' has. 3
losses, all in the, "Jungle" the
'last 12 months. They will be
lying in wait for a shot at the
Tigers at their home field.
Kickoff at 7:30.
Enough said -
Blountstown -vs- Vernon.

season record to 2-'1 last
Thursday with a 14-6 victory
over Vernon in overtime. The

of regulation. The Tigers
scored a touchdown and,

' ith a convincing victory over


Port St. Joe, 22-14 on the
-Shark's home field.
The Tiger JV suffered their

in the game to claim the vic-
tory, 7-6.
The Tiger JV will host'

later on a 48 yard scoring
pass. The Tiger defense got
caught out of position giving
the Eagles the easy score.
On the Tigers' next series,
Cox was intercepted leading
to a NFC 42 yard field goal to
put them up 10-7 early in the
second quarter.
Late in the second period,
the' Tigers took over near
midfield. After two 8 yard
runs by Ryan Baker, Timothy
Copeland found a big hole
and raced 36 yards for a
touchdown. King's kick put
the Tigers on top at intermis-
sion, 14-7.
Cox would finish the night
completing 14 of 20 passes
for 208 yards, one intercep-
tion, and one touchdown.
Baker led the Tiger rush-
ing attack with 67 yards on
16 carries followed by
Copeland with 63 yards on
11 rushes. Garry Reed had
one rush for 11 yards.
Lockhart had another out-
standing night catching the
ball ,with 6 catches for 108
yards and a touchdown.
Reed had 4 catches for 59
yards, Chase Cox one catch
for 21 yards, Brandon
Williams one catch for 14
yards, and Matt Vincent one
catch for 7 yards.
On their second posses-
sion of the second half, -NFC
drove 60 yards in 7 plays to
regain the lead, 17-'14.The
Tiger defense held the Eagles
scoreless while the offense
battled a host of penalties,
some very questionable, for
the remainder of the third


quarter and most of the
fourth quarter.
Midway thru the fourth
quarter, Chase Cox came up
with a fumble recovery for the
Tigers at the Tiger :41.
Passes of 16 and 18 yards to
Reed and a spectacular catch
of 34 yards by Lockhart at
the NFC 6 yard line set up
the Tigers' go ahead sore.
Baker pounded irj the from
the one on third down with
1:47 left on the clock. King's
PAT gave the Tigers a 21-17
lead.
NFC moved downfield with
their passing attack, but the
clock was on the Tigers' side.


From the Tiger 45 NFC's
quarterback lofted a Hail
Mary pass into the endzone.
NFC had an excellent oppor-
tunity to catch the pass but it
fell to the ground and the
Tiger celebration began.
The Tigers rushed for 123
yards and passed for 208
while NFC rushed for 81 and
completed 15 of 32 passes for
189 yards. The Tigers were
penalized 13 times for 143
yards while NFC was penal-
ized 5 times for 46 yards.
Dayne Read of NFC rushed
for 71 yards, caught 5 passes
for 37 yards and led the
Eagles with 14 tackles.

Attend Space Camp in AL Volena Barfield


Two local boys, Tommy
Futch and Seth Alderman.
attended a week-long Space
Camp last month in
Huntsville. AL.
They learned everything
you need to know about
Space Shuttle Systems and
Life aboard the Orbiter and
Space Station. They got to try
out space food and learned to
sleep in space. Their astro-
naut training continued on
the Multi-Axis trainer that
spins people all around. just
like the Mercury astronauts.
Tommy, Seth. and the
other campers took turns on
a 5-Degrees of Freedom
Chair (it's like a chair floating
on air) training just like the
Gemini astronauts actually
received. They also trained
like the Apollo astronauts did
far their trip to the moon by
taking a walk in the' 1/6th
Gravity Chair! And finally,
campers strapped on Space,
Camp's own version of a jet
pack an MMLI, that's NASA
talk for a Manned
Maneuvering Unit and
maneuvered around on a
cushion of .air. Campers got


to take time off from a busy
training schedule for water
activities, but not too much,
because they were soon off to
rocket construction. Thev
learned how to build and
launch their own one-stage
model rocket.
Space Track Campers
went through extensive Mars
training to prepare for inter-
planetary travel. Tommy and
Seth learned about the plan-
et. its soil. geology, climate
and the atmosphere. They
received crew assignments.
and then they were ready to
go! Once the campers and
their crew arrived, they set-
tled into their new home -
Mars Outpost-Alpha Station
-and they began to complete
their mission assignments as
they explored the surface of
Mars. They conducted exper-
iments on the soil and rocks
collected, and had to keeping
everything on board the Mars
Outpost running smoothly.
Once the mission was
complete, it was time to head
home to Earth and back to
Calhoun County.


Calhoun County s own Tommy Futch and Seth Alderman had
a blast last monti oft Space Camp in Huntsville AL.

~E,,,, ,. 24, 1962
S. ":- :'. ,.., AT Engines w/ACERT
," Tchnology "
J Kevin Hamlin
Biography:
In 2000, Blaney and his Amoco team moved up to
Winston Cup full time and posted two-top tens. He would
finish third in the NASCAR Winston.Cup Rookie of the
Year award standings for the 2000 season. His best fin-
ish during the 2001 and 2002 season was a 7th at
Phoenix. The 2003 season started out extremely well for
Blaney as he finished three of the first five races in the
top ten. However, the rest of the season was a struggle
and the team was only able to finish in the top ten once
more during the year. In 2004, he took over Richard
Childress Racing's #30 America Online Chevrolet for
eight races, which induded two Top-15 finishes, howev-
er when Jeff Burton became available, Childress hired
Burton to drive the #30 for the mremairnder of the season.
In 2005, he would return to Richard Childress Racing to
drive the #07 Jack Daniel's Chevrolet During the season
he would post two top ten finishes and post a solid aver-
age finish of 234. In 2006, he returned to the Bil Davis
stable to run the #22 Caterpillar Dodge. Dave's best fin-
ish so far has come in last week's race at Richmond
International Raceway, where he finished 4th.

NASCAR is giving serious consideration to widening
the Chase for the Nextel Cup championship field and
awarding more points to race winners beginning next
season. NASCAR Chairman Brian France promised
slight changes to the Chase in July, and those two
options are under the heaviest consideration.
Changes to the final 10 races which won't happen in
2007 are unlikely. The sanctioning body is looking at
ways to award a "wild card" but hasn't finalized any-
thing. NASCAR does not want to ensure a spot in the
Chase field to a driver who wins only one race.
