Downtown renaissance begins with

Wakulla Bank construction


BY LISA GARCIA
Wakulla Bank
A crowd of local dignitaries and community
supporters, op Wednesday helped Wakulla Bank
board members and employees break ground on
a downtown Blountstown branch heralded by
business officials as a boost to the city's restora-
tion efforts.
"We are very pleased with the design of the
building," said Wakulla Bank President and CEO
Walter C. Dodson Jr. "We think it will be a show-
place for downtown Blountstowh."
Dodson said the 5,425-square-foot branch is
scheduled to open in May 2007 and will offer a
number of convenient features:
Full-service banking
Four drive-in lanes
m Drive-up. 24-hour ATM
m Numerous safe deposit boxes
Night depository
Wakulla Bank area manager and vice presi-
dent Vicki Montford will manage the downtown
Blountstown branch, which will employ six. The
bank's Blountstown Piggly Wiggly branch will
remain open.
Several historic buildings previously owned
by the Ramsey family once stood on the con-
struction site. The family made numerous
attempts over the years to save one of the build-
ings, but it could not be preserved. Montford
invited Ramsey family members and others con-
. nected to the land purchase to participate in the
groundbreaking event.
"We especially want to thank the Ramsey fam-
ily for its contribution to this project," said
Maontford, who manages Wakulla Bank branches
in Blountstown and Bristol. "We thank you for
selling to us."
The building design by Florida Concepts Inc.
reflects the 'Masonry Vernacular building tradi-

died from his injuries
after being transported to
Bay Medical Center.
According to the JEREMCGG
Florida Highway. Patrol, JEREMY CLEGG
Clegg and his best friend,
Scott D. Grzegorczyk, 17, of Clarksville, were
both westbound on Owenwood Road at the
intersection of Walsh Road in separate vehicles
around 11 p.m. Grzegorczyk, who was driving a
1996 Acura, attempted to pass Clegg's 1992
Toyota pickup. The right front of Grzegorczyk's
car struck the left rear of Clegg's truck, causing
both vehicles to go out of control. Clegg's truck
rolled over several times and he was ejected.
Grzegorczyk sustained minor injuries.
The accident was investigated by Trooper M.
Mattingley and Cpl. R. Boer. The report notes
that the crash was not alcohol related.
Grzegorczyk was wearing his seatbelt; Clegg
was not.
The mood in the carpentry department at
BHS where Jeremy spent three periods a day
was understandably somber on Monday.

tion of the early 20th Century, where communi-
ties often used similar types of architecture, con-
struction techniques, and building materials.
Eldridge Construction Inc. is the builder.
The bank's exterior complements existing
downtown architectural specifications and con-
forms to Florida Main Street program guidelines.
Main Street Blountstown Chair Tony Shoemake
said the new branch will be a welcome part of
the city's improvements.
"Wakulla Bank has taken a major step in the
revitalization efforts of downtown Blountstown,"
said Shoemake. "It demonstrates the bank's
partnership with the City of Blountstown and
support for its Florida Main Street program
efforts." ,
Florida Main Street is a technical assistance
program that encourages economic development
within the context of historic preservation, par-
ticularly in Florida's historic retail districts. The
Bureau of Historic Preservation, Division of
Historical Resources, Florida Department of
State, administers the program by working with
local downtown managers and advisory boards
to revitalize downtown areas.

Man accused of
sexual activities
with teenage girl

A Kinard man remains in
custody at the Calhoun

engaging in sexual activities
with a teenage girl.
David Philyaw, 26, has
been charged with lewd and
lascivious molestation.
According to the Calhoun
County Sheriffs Office, the
mother of a 14-year-old girl
contacted authorities after
spotting her daughter cud-
dled up with Philyaw. Dep.
Chris Porter interviewed the
girl who allegedly admitted
she and Philyaw had three

kissed and touched each
other's genitals. Philyaw
reportedly admitted the same
to Dep. Porter and added he
had been drinking on each
occasion.

Altha couple charged
with child abuse and
marijuana possession

An Altha couple was
arrested -Friday on child
abuse and drug charges.
Alonzo and Jennifer. Hall
were taken into custody at
their home on 5th Street in

According to the Calhoun
County Sheriffs Office, Dep.
Bliss Moreau escorted an
employee with the Florida
Dept. of Children and
Families (DCF) to the home in
response to complaints the
couple's two small children
had been abused and neg-
lected. Dep. Moreau reported
the home as "unclean and
very unsanitary" and noted
the children were also "very
unclean."
While the DCF investigator
inspected the home, she
spotted a marijuana cigarette
in the bathroom sink. Alonzo
Hall reportedly admitted to
smoking the joint and turned
over some loose marijuana
and rolling papers. Two
Acetaminophen pills were
found on top of a desk in the
bedroom in easy reach of the
children. A bottle of antibi-
otics was also found.
Jennifer arrived home dur-
ing the inspection and admit-
ted she purchased the mari-
juana the previous night and
had smoked it with her hus-
band before she went to work
that afternoon. She also
allegedly stated her small
child is allowed to play with
the pill bottle as it substi-
tutes as a baby rattle.
The couple was given a
conditional release the fol-
lowing day.

Vehicle stolen from
Michigan discovered
in Calhoun County

A 2001 Honda Accord
stolen from Michigan was
recovered in Cahoun County
this month and a suspect is
in custody.
Brandon Hankens, 22, is
being held on charges of
grand theft auto and war-
rants from Michigan and
Walton County.
According to the Calhoun
County Sheriffs Office, Maj.
Roman Wood was contacted
by Gulf County authorities
Sept. 12 and learned a mlan
in that county thought he
was a victim of a scam and
noted the suspect's vehicle
was parked in Scotts Ferry.
Maj. Wood found the car at
the home of Christopher
Hasty on Burch Road. A
check on the car revealed it
had been' stolen during a
home invasion burglary in
Michigan.
Hasty was interviewed by
Sheriff David Tatum, Major
Wood, and Lt. Michael Bryant
and advised he was at a flea
market in Wewa two weeks
prior when he was
approached by a couple sell-
ing computers. He said they
advised they were traveling to
St. Petersburg when their
luggage and wallet were
stolen. Hasty said he invited
them to stay at his home and
clean up since they smelled


bad. The couple stayed with
him a couple days, then left
to go to the home of a Gulf
County man who hired them
to repair his computers.
Hasty said the man, who he
knew only as Brandon, left
his vehicle behind, claiming
he didn't want to drive it with
a broken windshield.
Gulf County authorities
detained the suspects and
turned Hankins over to'
Calhoun County officials.

Dear Editor:
The issue of consolidation
seems to be identified as an
issue with Altha and that it
will not affect Blountstown.
Although I am a traditionalist
and I would hate to see the
history erase all of the BHS
accolades, I would find
myself supporting consolida-
tion if the new school were to
be built at or near the Ag
Park. With the location of the
new school to be located in
Clarksville. I would really
hate to see consolidation
fr.omr,an.athletic standpoint. ,
I am not an expert nor do I'
claim to be an expert in run-
ning a school system, but I,
have coached at various
* schools across the state and
would like to offer my advice
as to how consolidation will
affect athletics. It may not
affect athletics as in Wakulla.
but it is a risky call at best.
But in the majority of schools
.that have moved outside the
city limits, athletics has fal-
tered. I realize initially the
football games would be
played in town, but eventual-
ly a stadium will be built at
the new. campus,.
My first coaching stop was
at Dunnellon, only, a few
years removed from the-
Richard Kennedy champi-
onship years. While the
school was located in town:
they had wonderful support
from the businesses and
their Tiger pride ran deep as
they filled up the stadium,
every Friday night. When I
got to Dunnellon, the new
school was four years old and
was built only 4 and a half
miles out of town. The once
proud program struggled for
attendance, the booster club
faltered and it was a chore to
get half of the business sup-'
port, that once flourished in'
the school. One of the biggest
strengths of our community
in Blountstown is the sup-'
port from fans and from busi-
nesses in regards to athlet-


ics, I would hate to see any-
thing jeopardize that.
I really enjoyed my five
year stint as basketball coach
at the BHS. The kids. fans
and business leaders were
really supportive and my
words could not do justice for
the appreciation I have of
them. While I was coaching, I
had two players that lived Lm
Clarksville. two players that
lived in Scotts Ferry. The
other thirty sLx lived in or on
the outskirts of Blountstown
or St. Rose. With consolida-
tion. to Glarksl"e: \ will the
county provide an activity.
bus for the student/athlete s
transportation home, or will
the student/athlete have to
provide their own transporta-
tion, or will the coach provide
the players he wants to play a
ride home or will the stu-
dent/athlete not play? If
either of the first three are
chosen,, what will the stu-
dent/athlete do in regards to
late practice with the idle 2
hours?'
Many times I have seen
players and fans walk home
from games at BHS. I would
be willing to venture that the
attendance and support of
home games out in
Clai-ksville will resemble a
road game for the home
team. Of course it would
make it easier on crowd con-
trol for that administration.

these days. For R.L. and Hilda
Alford, it's pretty miraculous.

on Sept. 14. .1956. They left
Blountstown and eventually
landed in Alameda, California.
where R.L. was stationed In
the Navy.
For the first few months of
their marriage, they adjusted
to their new home, making fast
friends at their church where
they were team teachers for a

For the newlyweds, eb
their honeymoon would y'
end much too soon. Ten
months after they were
wed. R.L. and Hilda were
driving to church one
Sunday morning when a
Coast Guard ambulance-
sped in their direction. A
ambulance headed
straight and slammed into
the Alfords' car.
R.L. sustained only
minor injuries, but Hilda's
fate was much worse. She was
ejected from the car. "Her body
was around the stop sign,"
R.L. recalls.
Although she had a
ilth I head injury, it wasn't

it heO severe her injuries
nai were.
alef "She did fine for
three or four days. then
a blood clot developed,"
R.L. explains.
After seven months
in the hospital, Hilda
came home as a quad-

but her mind was clear.

A Crowning Day
II Timothy 4:8
I graduated a few times in
my life. I remember each one
with fond memories and a
real since of accomplish-
ment. Each one has marked
a completion and has pointed
to greater challenges still
ahead.
Also, there will be a com-
pletion, graduation, a crown-
ing day for the faithful right-
eous. The Lord will not forget
those acts of kindness, those
tears she'd in prayer, those
times of fasting, those times
of faithful labor. He will
remember all those who have,
suffered because of having
taken a stand for righteous-
ness (Matthew 5:10-12). Any
other award or honor that
may be received will seem
less important by- compari-
son. The smile of approval,
the "well done" by our Savior,
will make everything we go
through worth it all.

share of suffering (II
Corinthians 11:23-30). His

writing to Timothy came from
the chill and isolation of his
Roman prison. Yet he had a
forward look. He knew the
picture was not yet complete.
He knew and affirmed that
the final day (Christ's com-

We need to shake our-
selves from self-pity there is
no time for that. We need to
refocus upon the face of our
Savior who knew far more

Tigers 5 -0 aterl 41-0 shutout


The State Class 2B fourth
ranked Blountstown Tigers
put together a strong per-
formance on offense and
defense Friday night at
Bowles Field to claim their
fifth win of the season over
Potter's House Academy, 41-
0. Blountstown used a hard
hitting defense to limit the
Jacksonville school to 66


yards of total offense. On
offense, the Tigers had one of
their most balanced efforts of
the season racking up 275
yards of rushing on 33
attempts and another 154
yards of passing with Cory
Cox completing 8 of 11
attempts including three
touchdowns.
"That's as well as we've


played all year," coach Greg
Jordan said Monday. "We
didn't throw it much against
Vernon and we wanted to
work on our passing game
some before we go to Leon
Friday night."
The Tigers will end a very
difficult stretch of their
schedule when they travel to
Leon High School in
Tallahassee Friday night for a
6:00 p.m. kickoff. The Tigers
defeated Leon last year and
we'll be their homecoming
opponent Friday night.
"Leon has lost to Wakulla,
Godby, Gainesville Buholtz
and Mosley who are all very
strong teams. Leon is hungry
for a win and we'll have to
play well and try to hang in
there with them," Jordan
'noted. "They have more sen-
iors than we have players so
depth could be a big factor in
the game. It will definitely be
David vs. Goliath."
Blountstown's defense
stopped Potter's House on
their first possession and
quickly moved down field for
a touchdown. Ryan Baker
broke some tackles and raced
22 yards for the score. Jared
King's PAT gave the Tigers an,
early 7-0 lead.
On the Tigers' next offen-
sive series, Cory Cox scram-
bled and found ,Jonathan
Lockhart at the goal line for a
touchdown on a 36 yard com-
pletion. King's PAT was wide
left, but the Tigers were on
top at the end of the first
quarter, 13-0.
The Tiger defense man-
handled Potter's House.
Ryan Baker, who led the
Tigers in tackles with 10,


broke up a pass, caused two
fumbles, recovered a fumble
and intercepted a pass.
Brandon Williams also had
an interception for the Tigers.
Christian Smith and Chase
Cox were each in on 6 tack-
les.
Cox connected with
Lockhart again in the second
quarter for 24 yards and a
touchdown. Timothy
Copeland scored on a two
point play. Just before inter-
mission, Cox connected for
the third time with Lockhart
for ail 8 yard touchdown.
King's PAT was wide, but the


Tigers led at halftime, 27-0.
Eric O'Bryan crashed in
from 5 yards out in the third
quarter to cap off an impres-
sive 89 yard, 13 play drive
and King added the PAT for a
34-0 lead.
In the fourth quarter,
Copeland turned the corner,
broke a tackle and raced 85
yards for the Tigers' final
score. King's kick was good
for the final score of 41-0.
Copeland rushed for 144
yards on 8 carries and a
touchdown followed closely
by Baker who rushed for 77
yards on 8 carries and a


touchdown. Malcolm Ivory
added 40 yards on 5 rushes
followed by Demarco
Johnson with 19 yards on 4
carries.
Lockhart had 3 catches,
all for touchdowns, for 68
yards. Garry Reed caught 3
passes for 72 yards, Brandon
Williams had one grab for 9
yards and Chase Cox had one
catch for 5 yards.
Friday night's game with
Leon will be big test for the
Tigers and they'll need to see
a big crowd in the stands
making plenty of noise for
them. GO TIGERS!!

HEAD COACH GREG JORDAN A


SFORDCOST ESS


by Coach Greg Jordan
The B.H.S. Tigers played a
complete game -vs- Potter's
House this past Friday night at
Bowles Field in a 41-0 victory.
The win moved the Tigers to a
5-0 record on the season,
Defensively our philosophy
versus Potter's House was to
stop their tailback #2 who had
15 carries for 42 yards. The
previous week he had 35 car-
ries for nearly 200 yards. Hats
off to Coach Chester and the
defense for the shutout and
how physical we played.
Potter's House Christian
Academy only had 66 total
yards of offense on 46 plays:
Offensively the Tigers had their
way, rushing 275 yards and
passing for 154 for 429 total
yards of offense. P.H.C.A.
played North Florida Christian
35-20 and had beat a 3A
school last week'20-14. We as
coaches Were expecting more
Of a football game from them,
our kids came out early and
took it to Potter's House and
dominated the game.
This week the Tigers travel
to Tallahassee to take on clasg
4A Leon. This is truly a contest


of David versus Goliath, as
Leon has more seniors (26)
than we will have total players.
Leon will dress out close to 50
players, we will maybe dress
23 this week.
"Our kids will not be intimat-
ed by the number of players"
.or the size of the school. After
watching films all weekend on
Leon we feel like our first 11
players match up pretty well
with their first 11 players.
They will try to use their
depth to wear us down as the
game goes on. This week our
players will' have to rely on
being well conditioned and
physically strong enough to
hang in there for four quarters
versus a much large opponent.
The game will be played at
Leon High School, not Gene
Cox Stadium. The game will
begin at 6:00 CST / 7:00 EST.
It will be Homecoming for
Leon, maybe that will work to
.our advantage. We'll need our
12th man in the stands this
week. Please make the trip to
Tallahassee if you can. Hope
,to see you at the game.
Go Tigers///

Letters to the Editor con


issues are and what the con-
sequences will be. The
school board members espe-
cially need to understand!
It seems only fair to point
out some of the reasons why
consolidation would be better
and the reasons why consoli-
dation would be harmful.
How would consolidation
be better?
The highly competitive
academic students in both
schools could compete
against each other for honors
and recognition for academic
achievement.
Some folks believe there
might be more courses
offered to students.
More boys would be
available to play football if
they wanted to play.
Some folks think the
larger the school the better it
is.

How would consolidation
be harmful?
Remove a school from a
community and you hurt that
community. Both communi-
ties would be hurt.
The school board would
be required to levy two addi-
tional mills of taxes to help
pay for the school. This
means that school taxes
would increase about about
34.75%. (Note: The school
board is already levying max-
imum taxes for operation but
can levy two mills for facili-
ties.)
The school board would
be required to spend its
reserve funds to help pay for
the new school. This means
that the school board would
lose about $250,000 or more
in interest than it now gets
and can use for operation
each year.
According' to Supt.
Neves, by consolidating, the
county would lose about
$400,000 per year in sparsity
funds the county now gets'
from the state.
There will be an added
cost to transport students to
a new school. I
Operating and maintain-
ing an additional school
would be a costly expenditure
beyond what we now have.
I Leadership opportunities
for studen-ts would be less:
student body presidents, stu-
dent council officers and
members, class officers. club
officers, etc. would be
reduced by half.
In sports such as cheer'-
leadingi. 'olleyball. basket-
ball, baseball. softball, track,
etc.. participation \would be
reduced by about 50%
because there would be only
half as many teams.
Students at Altha and .
Blountstown are already
enrolled in six classes per
day. They would have to
drop one class they are
already taking to, enroll in
another.
Students in both schools
have done well over the years.
They have demonstrated that
if a student has..ability and
applies herself or himself in
school they are well prepared '
to go to college and be suc-
cessful. Think about the
business people, doctors,
nurses, technicians, lawyers,
educators.' farmers, certified
public accountants and state
and national leaders Calhoun
County has produced.


Before taking action on
this matter, the school board
should explain to the. citi-
zens:
Exactly how consolida-
tion would be better for stu-
dents.
How will the board make
up the $600,000 to $800,000
per year lost through consoli-
dation and the added cost of
operation since the board is
already levying maximum
taxation for operational? Will
it be personnel layoffs or
salary reduction?
It seems that an issue this
important and far reaching
should be put before the citi-
zens for a vote. The ones
making these decisions today
will soon be gone and
Calhoun County will still
have to live with that deci-
sion. If you are interested,
talk to your school board
member.
For more information,
come to the meeting at the
CIVIC CENTER in
Blountstown Monday,
October 2, at 6:00 p.m.
Respectfully,
Morrell Bailey
Dear Editor:
I sought the office of
superintendent of schools of,
Calhoun County in 2004
because it was my belief that
the other candidates did not
have the same goals I had for
the direction our school sys-
tem should take. My desire
was for each school site to be
left at its current location and
be maintained, renovated,
and expanded as needed.
My goal was for each
respective town/city to be
able to keep its established
pride of history, tradition,
and customs of its local
school and community. It
was my belief that just as a
family must work together
and support each other in
order to be a close unit, so
must a community and the
school within that communi-
ty.
It was also my desire to
not place any more burdens
on the small percentage of
taxpayers than necessary.
For the last three years the
30% of us who pay taxes in
this county. have"had our
la.es increased to support
schools. Of this 30'-'.. many
surxi\ve on [ixed incomes. In
addition. many' of the taxpay-
ers do not benefit from their
money being taken by the
school board because they do
not work for the school
board, or do not have any
children in the local school
system.
When BHS and AHS are
closed and the new county-
wide school is built, the prop-
erty taxes will be increased
by 13% what we are current-
ly paying. If'you are curious
as to the. amount you will be
affected, call and speak with
the county property apprais-
er, you may be shaken into
reality as to how this will
affect you.
We have been hearing a lot
about school 'consolidation',
however, I feel the term 'con-
solidation' is misleading. It is
a term being used to smooth
over what is really going to
happen, and in reality it is
school closings and school
relocation. In reality it is our
local schools, social life, and
community events ceasing'to


exist, as we now know them.
There will be no more
"AHS Wildcat Pride" or "BHS
Tiger Pride". When the high
school is constructed, 'it will
be located at least 20 miles
from its current site for BHS
students, and approximately
30 miles from the current site
for AHS students. This will
result in longer bus routes
for the majority of our 9th
and 10th grade students, and
certainly a more dangerous
drive for our inexperienced
11th and 12th grade stu-
dents as they will have to
commute along highway 20
when parents, buses, and
school employees from all
over the county are trying to
get to one location between
7:00 7:30 am.
For many families it is
going to mean driving their
younger children to an ele-
meintary and/or middle
school, and then driving 20-
30 miles to the new high
school, and then back to
Altha, Blountstown, Bristol,
or Jackson County to work.
For a vast number of our
student population, it will be
closer to attend high school
in the neighboring counties of
Jackson or Liberty.. I realize
some people are not con-
cerned with this fact.
However, students account
for FTE (full time equivalen-
cy), and it is the amount of
(students) FTE that keeps the
schools opened and financed
by the federal government.
'It has been stated "it is
time for Calhoun County res-
idents to stop receiving some-
thing for nothing." I find that,
many of the taxpayers have
been supporting the local
schools in money, words, and
deeds for generations. Many
of us do so anonymously as
we donate to school projects,
purchase books for libraries,
give money to allow students
to attend educational trips,
and support the fine arts and
sports programs. We do
understand the big picture
and realize you don't receive
something for nothing. We
also realize you don't have to
close down existing facilities
and programs to improve
education for our students.
The one thing I hb'.c' heard
at school board meetings.
and. TV and newspaper inter-
views is that our students
will have modern technology
in the new high school. It is
my belief that you do not
have to construct a multimil-
lion-dollar facility in order to
have the latest technology.
Osama bin Laden planned
and facilitated 9/11 using
the latest technology, and did
so from a cave in
Afghanistan!
When I lost the 2004 elec-
tion for superintendent of
schools, I wrote in the last
newspaper ad asking citizens
to please take note and be
aware, and active in the
school system. Many of you
have gone and spoken your
opinions and presented your
ideas as to what it best for
you and your family, which in
totality, is what makes up the
school system. You were
accommodated with time, but
not in deed. You were given
due time to speak, but were
not listened to.
If you warn to pay 13%
higher property taxes, have


your children travel further
distances to school and
change buses during the trip
in order to route students to
the proper school facility,
want to abolish the 'Tiger
Tracks" and "Wildcat
Territory" traditions that has
been passed down for genera-
tions in your family, and to
have highway 20 even more
dangerous than it is now for
our residents, than continue
to sit idly by and this is
exactly what will happen.
I would like to counter two
ideas that have been stressed
to our citizens. First of all, it
is not true that in order to
receive the millions from the
state that the two high
schools must be closed. The
state merely requires that the
school district establish a
plan prioritizing our needs
and wants. In doing so, the
school administration can
select one school as its most
critical need and use the
state funds to expand, reno-
vate, and meet the needs of
that one school. At the con-
clusion of the first three
years, the school administra-
tion then selects the second
most critical need and con-
centrate on that school site
for the consecutive three
years, and the process then
continues.
Second, it has been
implied our county is being
donated land along highway
20 and that this land must be
used for the location of the
new high school. This is not
true. In attendance at one of
the facility presentations in
which the speaker from the
facility study presented
options as to what the school
board may decide, if any-
thing, to do. I asked that if
the,county is donated land,
are we then required to build
on that land, or could we sell
the donated land and use the
money to help with the funds
we are required to come up
with, and/or use the money
made from the sell of the
donated land to purchase
land that would be more
accommodating to our other
school sites. He stated, "Yes,
the land donated, could be
.sold and proceeds used to


PR


purchase land in a different
location." He did not know if
the proceeds from the sell of
the donated land could be
used in acquiring the funds
needed by the county in order
to get the millions from the
state, but that he could
check on it. I never heard
anything more.
October 10, 2006 is the
next scheduled school board
meeting. NOW IS THE TIME
to phone, visit, and speak
with the school superintend-
ent and school board mem-
bers. You can bet it is being
planned now as to who will
say what land vote which way,
now, before the meeting. So,
time is of the essence!
In viewing the 'big picture'
in decision-making, they
must be careful not to disre-
gard the specific entities and
the far-reaching impact their
decisions have upon our chil-
dren. The statement was
recently made that the school
would not be in existence
until 2010 anyway, as if to
say, don't worry about this
now, we will handle things,
and just wait until 2010 to

see how things are as if 2010
will not be in our lifetime. I
beg to differ. The year 2010
will be the year many chil-
dren, including my son and
his friends, will be entering
the 9th grade. When I estab-
lished residence in Calhoun
County I knew I could drive 6
miles to either AHS or BHS. I
suggest others had the same
information when they estab-
lished their, home sites and
chose where to live. It is
unfair to require so many of
us to disrupt our lives and
plans for our children on
what may or may not materi-
alize in population growth
along highway 20.

Thank you,
Glenda Sue Vickery
Supporter of AHS & BHS

Blountstown Business Concerned

About Consolidation

4q When you take the High School out of Blountstown, you take
business with it. No more football or other sports,
graduations, homecoming parades or any other activities.
Loss of business means loss of jobs and slower growth. 99%
of all the retail business in Calhoun County is located in
Blountstown and Altha with most in Blountstown. The
School Board has not had an economic impact study done to
determine how great the effect will be.

Everyone Affected By Increased Property Tax

When property tax is increased RENT GOES UP. A 2 mill increase in school tax is
a 35% increase in school tax. Property assessments went up by $42,652,480.00 this *
year. This means property tax went up by about $669,046.00 this year. One mill I _
generates about $322,038.00, therefore we have had the equivalent of a 2 mill -
increase this year due to increased assessments. Assessments are expected to
increase again next year.
Tax Money Comes Out of Our Local Economy

The increase in property tax we have seen this year plus the 2.2 mills the School
Board would raise for consolidation will take approximately $1,300,000.00 out of
our local economy. This does not include a sales tax that is also being considered
or additional property tax levied due to increased assessments. That is money that
R will NOT be spent with local business. Can we afford to have $1.3 million plus
taken out or our local economy?

We Need Jobs In Calhoun County -

When a business is looking to relocate, one of the first things they look at is the tax
structure. Calhoun County is currently at 15.686 mills. With school consolidation ,
we will be at 17.886 mills. Gulf County is at 9.0971, Jackson County is at 14.0629
and Bay County is at 11.020. Where would you locate?

Retired People Hit Hardest

' ., Drastic increases in property tax and insurance are creating a tremendous burden
^. ^on retired people and those on fixed incomes. People who have worked all their
/ lives and saved and saved in order to have a nice home and a little land may be
G l faced with the real possibility of having to sell what they have worked for because
they can not afford to pay the taxes on it. Is this the American dream?

You Can Do Something About It


Call your school board member and let them know what you think.

consolidation & A
," .td. 5.


The County Record read-
ers had specific questions
about the consolidation of
Altha and Blountstown high
schools. Superintendent Mary
Sue Neves provides answers
below:
1. What are the chances
the new high school will be
located by the Ag. Park?
It could possibly be locat-
ed there, but if not would be
as close to the geographic
center of the county.
Population centered loca-
tions would also be consid-
ered.
2. Hasn't it been pretty
much decided that the loca-
tion of the new school will be
located at the crossroads and
isn't the state pushing for the
location of the school on Hwy
73, south of Clarksville.
No definite location has
been decided upon.
Location of available land,
population density, highway
traffic, bus routes, future
growth are all some of the
many factors to be consid-
ered before making a deci-
sion on a specific location.
The state has mentioned
Highway 73 south of
Clarksville, but it was just in
conversation. The Florida
Department of Education offi-
cials have not stated a specif-
ic building site.
3. If it goes to the cross-
roads, the city has agreed to
run sewage and water....who
will pick up that cost?
First of all, the City of'
Blountstown.has not been offi-
cially approached by the
school board to request pro-:
vidinrg utilities for a .-new
school. If the school board did
eventually make this request
then it would be up to the
City of Blountstown whether
or not they would provide
those services.,
If the City of Bic.untstown
did agree to provide services,
then the state would pick up.
at least part and possibly all
of the costs associated with
these services,
4. If you add an additional
school, will not the upkeep
and maintenance be a lot
more expensive to the coun-
ty? What is the estimated
increase? .
The number of buildings in
the county will be larger,
whether we add another
school or not. We must add
additional classrooms to
meet the class size reduction
mandate by 2009-2010. We
are In desperate need for-
more adequate office space
for, the district personnel We
will need-he some amount of
office 'space whether we,
build a new office building or
renovate* an existing school
for offices. There is also the
possibility that *some of the.
existing school buildings will
be demolished because of
their age and condition. The,'
Cost of all of this will depend
on which decisions the school
board makes.
5. If you levy the millage,
as they did in Bonifay, would
you still not qualify for the
money the state has offered


without consolidation?
DOE officials have repeat-
edly said that it would be In
the state's and county's best
interest to go to some form of
consolidation when building
new schools for the district.
They would prefer that the
district come up with a specif-
ic plan to accomplish this.
6. Since you have a culi-
nary program at Altha, the
certified nursing assistant
(CNA) program at BHS failed,
you have online classes, dual
enrollment, and as a last
resort the students could trav-
el to campus to Chipola for
anything that was not offered
by the school, what specific
classes would be offered that
would enhance the educa-
tion at the new high school?
Combining the two high
schools will promote expan-
sion in academic, dual enroll-
ment and vocational curricu-
lum offerings.
Possibilities for new pro-
grams:
Jr. ROTC
Technology certification
programs
Expansion of present voca-
tional programs
Provide all vocational pro-
grams with new updated
facilities
Art
Expanded music programs
Expand foreign language
offerings
Band for Altha students
7. Would the reserve
money have to be spent to
qualify for the state money?
Or, do we still have it well
enough hidden in the budget
to -continue to keep it secre-
five?
A portion of It would be
spent. The exact amount
would have to be -decided
with the Dept..of Education
further along in the process.
The budget is public inf:,r-
motion. It is pubii.hed in the
newspaper each year. The
reserve is a part of the budg-
et. There are two public hear-
ings held each fiscal year
'before the final budget is
approved bythe board. There
is no such thing as "hidden"
money. ..
8. With a new high school
in Clarksville, the'" middle
school in Blountstown, ele-
mentaries all over the county,
and with the rise in trans-
portation costs, what would
be the most educated guess
on the increase in transporta-
tion costs to the consolida-
tion? Would this not create a
problem for parents that allow
older students to baby sit until
they get home?
The district has studied the
increase cost in fuel and bus
driver salaries for a central
high school. The increase in
the number of transported
students that will earn FTE
funding Will essentially offset
the increased costs.
9. If the mileage is raised,
how long do you foresee it to
stay at that rate? Most feel
that this would be a continual
rate and never go down
because of increased expen-
ditures.

The school district does not
foresee the need to keep the
millage raised past the four
years because of increased
expenditures. Utilities, etc.
cannot be paid from the mill-

expenditures. If the millage
remained in place, it would
be because the School Board
decided to build more build-

with the added risks of stu-
dent drivers by moving the
school 8 miles out of town on
a two-lane road that sees
seasonal rain and fog?
The School Board is always
concerned with the safety of
our students and employees.
The majority of students do
not live in the city limits of
Altha and Blountstown and so
they are already driving each
day. Some of the students
would actually have a
reduced commute time.

Financial Impact Statement:
This amendment requires state govern-
ment to appropriate approximately $57 mil-
lion in 2007 for the Comprehensive
Statewide Tobacco Education and
Prevention Program. Thereafter, this
amount will increase annually with infla-
tion. This spending is expected to reduce
tobacco consumption. As a result, some,
long-term savings to state and local govern-
ment health and insurance programs are
probable, but indeterminate. Also, minor
revenue loss to state government is proba-
ble, but indeterminate.
