It was standing room only at the Calhoun County-
School Board meeting last Tuesday night when a group
of angry Altha residents showed up to protest the pro-
posed consolidation of BlountstTown and Altha high
schools.
Superintendent Mary Sue Neves announced that.
after a lengthy process of six facilities workshops and
an independent study by a consultant. she wanted the
consolidation issue brought to a vote at the next regu-
lar meeting October 10.
"Sometimes we have to address very difficult issues."
Neves remarked. "WVe have to make tough decisions...\we
have to really look at the facts and study it and we have
done so."
Neves said she would recommend consolidating the
9th through 12th grades from Altha and BHS into one
countvnvide high school in order to receive special facil-
ities funding from the state. She emphasized that state
officials are not inclined to give funding to build com-
munity schools or pour money into old facilities. "If we
had a vision 20 years ago. we could have been like
Holmnes County and gotten money to build five new

cocaine buy, chase
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Two South Florida men, formerly .of Blountstown,
remain behind bars in the Calhoun County Jail after a
high speed chase ended in their arrests Friday on drug
charges.
Lem Bennefield, Jr., 34, of Vero Beach, was charged
with sale of cocaine, aggravated battery, aggravated
fleeing and eluding, reckless driving, criminal mischief,
resisting arrest, and an outstanding warrant for sale of
cocaine from an earlier investigation conducted by. the
Calhoun County Sheriffs Office. Donnie Donaldson,


schools, but we didn't. Is the money there to build five
new schools'? No. Our students deserve the very best
facilities to receive their education."
Neves also stressed that high school programs are
the most expensive to operate and a count-,vide high
school would provide an opportunity for every student
to receive expanded vocational programs.
"On October 10. I'm going to ask the board to make
a decision. providing us direction on whether wee want
to combine Blountstown High School 9'-12 and Altha
High School 9-12." she stated. "We have to have a deci-
sion because we've got to know a plan. It's not easy for
any of us and certainly not for me as Superintendent of
Schools."
District 2 School Board member Volena Barfield. who
will be replaced by Kelly King in November. said she felt
the new board members should address the matter after
they are in office. "Any action we make will require tax-
ation of at least two mills for at least three years."
Barfield noted. "I've spoken many times in opposition to
consolidation and people I represent have spoken in
opposition of consolidation. To me. the issue is we're
going to cripple the incoming board."

' LETTERS TO

THE EDITOR
^ :?


Dear Editor:
Three cheers for Main
Street Blountstown!!!
Saturday evening,
September 16th, I had the
pleasure of enjoying a won-
derful comedic murder mys-
tery performance put on by
Main Street Blountstown, a
committee of local
.Blountstown area business
owners, as well as volun-
teers, designed to raise
S money for the revitalization
and beautification of the
buildings and landscaping of
ithe downtown area of
Blountstown.
a The play was written by
Kelli Peacock, and was
h helped brought into fruition
,Ji by Vicki Montford of Wakulla
Bank, as well as the creative
finesse of Angie Hill of Merle
;Norman-Studio 20 whose
decorations for the event car-
i-ied such style and grace.
The evening started out with
an over-the-top dining expe-
rience made available by Tim
'Faircloth, Adrienne Wood
and Doris Traylor.
The fact of the matter that
'attendees, 'as well as myself,
felt like we were all a part of
;an all out murder mystery,
Though comical in nature,
"kept my attention as well as
everyone else through the
.entire performance. The very
tatstfullv done musical
ensemble of Crystal Rivers
accompanied the play with
its sound that reverberated
: throughout the historic walls
of the old courthouse, made
S the entire experience' that
mTnuch more' entertaining as
S ell as realistic.
I just wanted to take a
momentt to thank everyone
'or their hard work and
months of dedication in
Preparing for the evening. As
.new member of the
-alhoun.County Chamber of
commerce, I am proud to be
associated with such a fine
group of people and I look
forwardd to 'The Oscar Party,"
S he next ultimate dining
r\ent planned for February..
:f you are looking for a truly
entertaining dining experi-
tnce, that will be filled with
j uch style, and 'grace, I
Encourage, you. to,.,.t.ge 0your

because you will not want to
miss out on another opportu-
nity that these talented mem-
bers of your community have
to offer.

Dear Editor,
This letter is for whornmeer


murdered my dogs by poison-
ing, in the town of Altha.
How mean, cold, gutless
and heartless you are. I feel
sorry for you! I came home
from work Saturday morn-
ing, September 8, and found
3 of my dogs dead. If you
would have come to me
FIRST and told me they were
annoying you, I would have
gotten the chance to do
something with them.
Instead you took their lives. I
understand Potty, Tiny, and
Grump were nothing but
someone's annoying dogs to
you, but they have been my
babies for two years.
Someone took my Big Mac's
life last week the same way.
Tiny had a 2 month old baby.
How dare you play God
and take their lives. I would
never take away your family
like that. The Lord takes
care of His innocent. You
took their souls. May God
have more mercy on your
soul than you did for my
beloved dogs!
Marcia Adkins

Dear Editor,
I am writing to let the fam-
ilies of Calhoun County know
that their way of life is about
to be drastically changed (for
the worse) if our school board
passes the school consolida-
tion issue at next month's
meeting. That meeting will
be held on TUESDAY, OCTO-
BER 10 at 5:00 p.m. in the
Emergency Management
Meeting Room located in the
Calhoun County Courthouse
'basement.
As you may or may not
know, our Calhoun County
School Board spent $5,000 of
our money to hire a consult-
ant, Dr. John Watson. (Every
government agency has rio
money other than the money
they take from us in the form
of taxes.) Dr. Watson is an
educational facility planner
who works for the

Bowles Field Friday night to
host Potter's House out of
Jacksonville in a non-district
game. "Potter's House lost
earlier this year to North
Florida Christian 35-20, they
defeated 3A Yulee and they
lost last week to Arlington
Country Day. They've got a
tremendous amount of skill,
speed, and size. They're a
private school and we'll have
-to play well to win," coach


Greg Jordan said Monday.
The kickoff has been moved
up to 7:00 instead of 7:30.
The Tigers seem to get a
little better each week with
game experience, especially
the offensive line. "We're
eliminating mistakes and
doing a better job with read-
ing schemes on the offensive
line. Center Britt Leach,
guards Josh Lee and Eric,
David Mayo, and Shane
Bailey, tackles Bradley
Johnson and' Josh
Underwood and end Matt
Vincent are all doing a good
job. Defensively, we've played
well pretty much all year and
they're doing a good job,"
Jordan noted.
After allowing Vernon to
score on their opening pos-
session, the Tigers settled
down and took control of the
game. There was little need


to throw the football with the
Tigers racking up 373 yards
on the ground. Ryan Baker
led the Tigers with 116 yards
on 9 carries followed by
Timothy Copeland with 111
on 11 carries. Copeland
scored on runs of 15, 3, and
36 yards. Baker scored on
runs of 4 and 49 yards.
Demarco Johnson and
Malcolm Ivory rushed for 51
and 49 yards respectively.
One of Ivory's carries was for
34 yards and a touchdown.
Jared Lilly, Brent Ransom,
Eric O'Bryan and Garry Reed
also carried the ball in the
game.
Kicker Jared King hit 2 of
4 extra points in the game.
The Tigers went for two.
points twice, scoring on one
attempt.
Quarterback Cory Cox
completed 3 of 5 passes for


24 yards. Completions were
to Brandon Williams and
Jonathan Lockhart. Cox
scored on a two point play on
an option play.
The Tigers' lone turnover
came on a fumble late in the
game.
Defensively, Blountstown
held Vernon to 169 yards on
the ground and 51 through
the air. Eric O'Bryan and Nic
Hauversburk each came up
with fumble recoveries for the
Tigers and Jonathan
Lockhart recorded an inter-
ception. Chase Cox had 7


solo tackles and 5 assists on
the night followed by Ryan
Baker and jared Lilly who
were each in on 10 tackles.
Bradley Johnson was active
on the Tiger defense with 7
tackles followed by David
Mayo and Lance Clemmons
with 6 each. Josh Lee and
Demarco .Johnson had 5
tackles each. Other players
making some defensive plays
were Brad Tucker, Josh
Underwood, Ron VanLierop,
Christian -Smith, Brad
Tucker, Brad Terry, Heath
Bailey and Jason Money.


The Tigers have Potter's
House and Leon left in
September before a well
deserved open date October
6. Then the three game dis-
trict run in October wit
Bozeman (homecoming),
Chipley and Holmes County.
The regular season will end
November 3rd when the
Tigers host Wewa.
Fan support for the Tigers
has been outstanding this
season. These young men,
cheerleaders and the band
work hard and deserve your
support every week.

The County Record, SEPTEMBER 20, 2006, Page 9


Letters con'td


asked him to develop propos-
als to deal with our five aging
school buildings. He devel-
oped four plans, not just one,
and shared these plans in six
different public meetings
held throughout our county.
Our school board mem-
bers never voted on which of
the four plans to act upon.
Your superintendent, Mary
Sue Neves, decided herself
which plan our school board
would accept.
The superintendent said,
'To receive special facilities
funding we're going to have to
combine Altha High School
and Blountstown High
School. On October 10 I will
ask the board direction on
one central high school."
What the superintendent
didn't tell the public is what
else is included in that plan
that she proposed the school
board vote on. This plan'
calls for converting
Blountstown Middle School
building to Calhoun County
District Administration
Offices. The Blountstown
High School building will be
converted to the Calhoun
County Middle School. All
students in grades 6-8 at
Altha School, Blountstown
Middle School, and Carr
School will be transferred to
the Calhoun County Middle
School. Altha Public School
will become the Calhoun
County Elementary School.
Neither does our school
board have this '$20 $48,
million .dollars (of our money
,needed to build this new high
school) at the -present time
nor is it a guarantee they will
receive this money. They
would have to apply to the
Department, of Education in
March of next, year fdo the
money, .(our money). If the
DOE approves their applica-
tion,. then the state legisla-
ture would consider giving us
this money (our money) in
the 2008, legislative session.
IF the legislature does
approve this money, what
economic effect will this have
on our families arnd us?
First, this new high school
\\ill either be built in the'
vicinity of the intersection of
State Road 20 and County
Road 275 or in the Clarksville


area. It will mean added
transportation costs to you.
If your child now walks to
school, in the future he will
either ride a bus or you will
have to take him to school. A
school board member stated
that 6-8 new school buses
would be needed to transport
these students. The average
cost of a new school bus is
$80,000 (our money). That's
between $480,000 -
$640,000 (our money) that
we taxpayers will be paying
just for new school buses, not
to mention fuel and mainte-
nance costs
Second, we will have to
spend our school board's
reserve fund and we will lose
our sparsity funding. At this
moment our school board
has around $6 million (our
money) in their Reserve
Fund. When the first shovel
of dirt is turned in building
this new central high school
building, the DOE will
require our school board to.
spend (our) $6 million.
That's because this special
facilities funding ($20 $48
million of our money) cannot
be used to build the following
at the new central high
school: an auditorium, a
baseball field, a football field,
or a softball field. As well,
the school board will no
longer receive $400,000 (our
money) in Sparsity Funding
that they now receive each
year. This Sparsity Funding
is (our) money the. state gives
our county each year
because our tax base is so
low.
Third, our school board
will have to raise our taxes in
order to help maintain this
new central high school
building and to maintain our
five school buildings we now
have. 'Our school board will
iimpose a millage rate"
increase of 2.2 on less than,
30 percent of people who pay
property taxes in our
Calhoun County. At this
moment the school board has
$322,038,098.00 of taxable
value in our county. When
.002 to discover how much
money the 2.2 millage rate
will generate multiplies this
amount, you will find that
less than 30 percent of prop-


erty taxpayers will be paying
an additional $644,076.20!
In one of the public meetings
with Dr. Watson, the public
got him to reluctantly admit
that once the 2.2 mills are
levied against the property
owners that it is never taken
away. Plus, all five of our
present school buildings will
remain open and taxes will
probably have to be raised
even higher to pay for main-
tenance costs
Fourth, neither has our
school board done an eco-
nomic impact study to deter-
mine the effect building this
new central high school will
have on the towns of Altha
and Blountstown. If you
own a business in one these
towns consider the money
you are going to lose when
parents no longer stop by on
their way to pick up their
kids from school and shop in
your business. It is certain
that our property values will
decline and our towns will
dry up when the high schools
are moved out of our' towns.
A new community and town
will spring up around the
new school.
"LET'S DO WHAT'S BEST
FOR THE CHILDREN." That
sentence kept on being
repeated continuously in the
September 12 meeting, and I
agree with it wholeheartedly.
But if we're going to do what's
best for the children, let us
not put on them the burden
of 'unnecessary taxes that
they are going to have to pay
for a lifetime.
When the school board
was asked if they had looked
for some grant money in
other areas, their silence was
admitting that they had not.
Why not? It .is available if
they will take the time to do
some research and find it.
Let's use some common
sense and use some of our $6
million reserve fund money to
address some of the mainte-
nance problems. A million
:dollars would go a long \iay
in building a wing or perhaps
two wings onto Carr School
to get the 60 percent of chil-
dren vho are having classes
in trailers today.
I don't know why the
school boards of the past did-


n't have enough vision to
maintain our school build-
ings but I don't want to pay
more taxes and I don't want
our offspring to have to be
paying high taxes.

tion plan. Their phone num-

Dear Editor,
The "proposed solution" of
consolidating Blountstown
and Altha schools is definite-
ly not in the best interest of
the students/children.
Which is to be the primary
objective for all concerned.
Also, this 'proposed solu-
tion' would only create more
"problems" than it is worth.
Altha school is fine like it
is. And should serve as a
good example, one which
Blountstown High School
and the Calhoun County
School Board can learn from
and emulate.
The common goal here
should be the students/chil-
dren and the quality of their
education. this cannot be'
accomplished .through con-
solidation. Any merger can
only be productive if it bene-
, fits both parties involved.
It is up to the School
Board and all those affiliated
\\ith it. as well as parents, to
w\\ork together to reach a
workable and realistic solu-
tion. And consolidation will
take away more than it could
possibly contribute.
Sincerely,
Rosalind C. Rauchsenberg.

NOTICE OF PROPOSED



TAX INCREASE



The City of Blountstown has

tentatively adopted a measure to

increase its property tax levy.


It was standing room only at the Calhoun County School Board meeting last Tuesday night
when the consolidation of Blountstown and Altha high schools was discussed,.



Consolidation


Doyle Daniels, the School
Board member in District 5,
is also leaving his post and
will be replaced by Danny
Hassig in November. He dis-
agreed with Barfield's stand.
"I'm not one to pass the
buck," he remarked. 'This
board has done the home-
work and I personally feel we
need to vote on it."
District 1 School Board
member Grant Williams also
wants to take it to a vote. "For
the past 15 months, we've
discussed and discussed this
issue...I don't see any need to
wait any longer," Williams
stated..
Tim Smith, who repre-
sents District. 3, said he felt
there. were .too many unan-
swered questions to take it to
a vote. "Is there proof we can
offer more? What is the cost'
of operating this new school?
We'll levy taxes to build, but
will we have to spend
reserves? we'ree goin2 to start
out broke." he said. "If it
comes up for a vote -next
month, I'll vote "no' because
we don't have all the facts."
Superintendent Neves said
the school district "missed
the boat" decades ago in their
opportunity to build new
community schools. She said
sparcity funding would be
lost,. but could be made up
hnrougnh attrition. Neves
emphasized. "Nothing comes
free in life. The taxpayers.
including me, have been venr
fortunate to not have our
taxes raised by much. We are
probably the onl\ district in
the state that doesn't raise
our two mijls to take care of
ourselves."
Neves added that when the
consultant met w\ith the
board he noted, "You've got to
help yourself...wie're not

, Barfield asked the incom-
ing board members, King and
Hassig, to state their opin-
ions on the matter.
Hassig noted that he'd
heard no discussion about
,Jthe children in Kinard who,
:travel from the south end of
the county to attend school.
"Nobody is better than any-
body, but everybody is
equal," he said. "I am for con-
solidation because it gives
every child a chance to suc-
ceed. It's an emotional deci-
sion, but I truly believe we
serve our kids best by giving
them opportunities."
King said she believes
there are many more issues
to be addressed before a deci-
sion can be reached. "I don't
think an\' of us has enough
information," she stated.
'This decision will impact our.
children's lives for years to
come and it shouldn't be
rushed."
In conclusion. Neves said,
"Do we have every answer?
No. Will we ever? Doubt it:.
But we've got, to decide on
direction. For me, I think our

upon in a mediation hearing.
Sims, who resigned in
January 2004, alleged she
endured verbal attacks from
former Altha Principal
Harriet Peacock after she
stood up for students she felt

'Were pleased that we

interests of everyone
involved,' Neves tells The
County Record. "The case was:
resolved through the:
Panhandle Area Educational,


Consortium's risk manage-

to an end, which is a positive
for everyone, as litigation is

from the business of educat-

main focus. The resolution
does not include an admis-

A Florida jury has found that Tobacco companies engaged in extreme and
outrageous conduct in the sale and marketing of cigarettes. Now, the
Florida Supreme Court has held that the tobacco companies are liable for
their conduct and individuals suffering from smoking related illnesses
may pursue claims for compensatory and punitive damages.
If you or a loved one developed a smoking related illness
between 1990 and 2000, call your Florida Consumer Justice Attorneys

he found a 14 year old boy on
the front porch covered in
blood. The teen advised he
had been stabbed repeatedly
by Conway who was armed
with a pocket knife.
Paramedics arrived and
treated the boy for four punc-
ture wounds to his back and
one to his head, arm, cheek,
and neck. The boy advised
Conway had been picking on
him the day before and said
he didn't know him until that


time. Several witnesses were
present when the alleged
assault occurred.
Conway could not be
located, however, warrants
were sought. He was taken
into custody last week and
released after posting as

Kenseth had eared the Rookie of the
Year honor, while finishing 14th in the
points standings, and claimed 4 top 5's
and 11 top 10's.


Biography:
Ton y Stewart started his Winston Cup career
with a bang, as he qualified his No. 20 Home
Depot Pontiac in second place in his first Cup
race, the 1999 Daytona 500. Stewart's 2005
season was one of his most successful years
in the Nextel Cup. He won five races, including
the Allstate 400 at The Brickyard, a race that
Stewart said he would give up his champi-
onship to win, and took with it the #1 seed
headed towards NASCAR's Chase for the
Nextel Cup 10-race playoff. On November 20,
Stewart won his second NASCAR Nextel Cup
Championship, joining Jeff Gordon and Terry
Labonte as the only active drivers to have won
multiple championships. This year, Stewart
missed the cut to qualify for the Chase for the
Nextel Cup by 16 points. He can, at best, fin-
ish 11th in the final points standings, his worst
finish ever, as he has been in the top 10 in all
of his previous 7 seasons.



NASCAR announced last Tuesday it has pur-
chased CASCAR (Canadian Association for
Stock Car Racing) and has formed a new rac-
ing series. The NASCAR Canadian Tire Series
involves a multi year sponsorship from
Canadian Tire and will kick off in May 2007.
The 10 to 12-race schedule will run from May to
October. The series will use drivers and teams
from the, former CASCAR Series. NASCAR
said the official schedule, points fund and
tracks would be announced at a later date.
