PLANNING COMMISSION DENIES PERMIT



Neighbors oppose ATV park


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
The Calhoun County Board of
County Commissioners, acting as
the local Planning Commission, has
denied a permit to a Clarksville man
seeking to open an ATV park in a
sand pit off Whitewater Grade Road.
Several neighbors in the area
appeared before the Planning
Commission at their regular meeting
last Tuesday to express their opposi-
tion to the park being proposed by
Clifford Newsome.
"Everybody wants to know why
there's nothing for children to do,"
Newsome .told the Commission.


"We're trying to do something posi-
tive. We're trying to build a family
atmosphere out there. There will be
no alcohol, it will be open only dur-
ing daylight hours, there will be no
drugs."
Whitewater Grade area resident
Skip Hatos was unmoved. "How
would you feel if it was your neigh-
borhood?" he asked the Commission.
"Would you be willing to give up your
peace for the profit of another per-
son?"
Other citizens expressed concern
about noise, parking, and pollution
issues. Barbara Ellison advised she
bought her 20 acre site from
Newsome and described him as a


"kind and generous neighbor." She
said her son-in-law later purchased
a 10 acre parcel next to her property
and they both expected it to remain
a quiet community. 'The dirt and
noise will devalue property in this
area," she remarked.
Aline Lambert agreed. "I think it
should be off Hwy. 10 and not in our
neighborhood."
Speaking in favor of the park was
Dana Cole. "I'm the closest one to the
clay pit and I'm for it," she stated.
"My husband and I bought a $7000
four wheeler and we'd like to have
somewhere to ride it." Cole said she
didn't see noise being a problem.
"We've had 14. four wheelers in that

Funds available to keep




residents warm this winter


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Cool nights are typically anything but pleasant for Janie
Bailey of Altha.
As with many old homes, her place has weathered
dozens of storms, but time. has left a few cracks and
crevices that allow cold air to seep inside. "It's a big house,
'so there are going to be cool spots in it," she remarks.
Living on a fixed income, making those repairs often
takes a backseat to other necessities. Fortunately for
Bailey and others, the Weatherization Assistance Program
(WAP) can help.
According to the WAP website, the program was created
in 1976 to assist low-income families who lacked resources
to invest in energy efficiency. WAP is operated in all 50
states and the District of Columbia, and works with Native
American tribes. The funds provided by Congress are used
to improve the energy 'efficiency of low-income dwellings
using the most advanced technologies and testing proto-
cols available in the housing industry. The energy conser-
vation resulting from the efforts of state and local agencies
helps our country reduce its dependency on foreign oil and
decrease the cost of energy for families in need while
improving the health and safety of their homes. Low
income families will save an average of $358 in reduced
first-year energy costs, at current prices.


Building Inspector Dowling Parrish and Weatherization
Program Director Faye Bailey discuss home improvements
that cut energy costs with Janie Bailey of Altha.
"The only rule is, once we weatherize someone's house,
we can't go back for 10 years," explains Faye Bailey who

track and you cannot hear them
from my backyard."
Another resident suggested coun-
ty officials do a better job of inform-
ing the public when a major land use
issue is proposed. "On big proposals
like this, do a public hearing notice
in front of the area," Jerry Strauss
told the Commission, adding that he
would not have known about the
matter had a neighbor not informed
him 'of the legal ad in the newspaper.
Commissioner Danny Ray Wise
made a motion to deny the permit.
He was seconded by Jeral Hall. The
motion passed 3-2 with Truman
Grant voting in favor, and Earl Hunt
and Jim Pickron voting against it.

A single vehicle crash in

around 6:20 a.m. The pair
were westbound, just 2.7
miles outside Blountstown,
when they passed another
vehicle during a heavy rain-

KELLI'S CORNER

By Kelli Peacock, News Editor


Turning Downtown
Around,
We've all been there. On a
trip, a shopping excursion, a
Sunday afternoon drive.
Suddenly, out of nowhere, a
town appears. Not just any
old community, but one of
those seemingly perfect
places where white picket
fences and colorful flowers
are sprouting on every cor-
ner.
In awe, we hit the brakes,
taking in the scene... bricked
streets, coordinated awnings,
signage that doesn't have
flashing lights and a gigantic
arrow attached. Quaint cafes
offer outdoor seating on the
sparkling clean sidewalk. An
antique store has a rocking
chair in the window just like
the one at grandma's house.
A banner spreads the news
that a festival is planned.
After partaking of
Americana at it's best, we
return to Calhoun County,
cruise through downtown
Blountstown, and ask, "Why
not here?!"
If youi have ever muttered
those words ,(haven't we all?),
take heed:. a downtown ren-
"aissance is on the-way.
Blountstown Main,, Street
members are working with a
renewed vigor to turn down-
,town around. And if you can
'spare even an hour or two a
month, your help is needed.
- Under the enthusiastic
leadership of Angie and
.Phillip Hill, Main Street mem-
bers are tackling downtown
*improvement with the four
,point approach design, pro-
,motion, economic restructur-
ing, and organization. Each.
'of these areas has a separate
.committee and there is
always room for anyone will-
ing to serve. If you'd like to
make a real difference in the'
future of our community.
now is the time to get
involved.
As 'a member of
-Blountstown Main Street, I've
Ihad to question when real
change would actually come
.about. Ideas are plentiful:
'cold hard cash to' make them
happen is not. But .L Itruly,
'believe downtown is on the
verge of becoming a place we
:canr all be proud of. Wakulla
Bank is designing their new
building in the center of town
with the Main Street design
;scheme. The Blountstown


Police Department is plan-
ning to do the same with
their new facility. A
Community Development
Block Grant is being sought
to help downtown building
owners refurbish their store-
fronts. Change is happening.
If you were one of the 300
who attended the Main Street
Murder Mystery Dinner
Theatre last month, you wit-
nessed a complete communi-
ty effort. Everyone from the.
kitchen volunteers to the all-
star cast of local actors joined
forces to raise money for the
downtown improvement
effort. A Main Street family
event is set for Oct. 31 when
the free Creature Feature will
be held after dark at
Magnolia Square. Bring a
blanket, curl up on the lawn
and watch an outdoor
screening of Creature From
the Black Lagoon. A
Christmas tree lighting is
being planned for November
in the square and a street
dance is set for Dec. 2 after
the Christmas parade. A tour
of homes will follow Dec. 8
and a hilarious night on the
red carpet in honor of the
Oscars is,, slated for late
February.
As you can tell, Main
Street is all about celebrating
community. Everyone a, part
of this organization wants
downtown Blountstown to.
thrive. If you'd like to be a
part of this effort, contact
Angie Hill at. 447-0336 or
Marti Vickery at the Chamber
office, 674-4519.

Worth Quoting
"Ask small-towners what
their place contributes to the
national economy and they'll
tell you, with a mixture of .
pride arid sadness: our kids.
..You can forget about
those bumper crops of corn'
and beans and truckloads of
beef and machinery the big
export item of small town
America always has been
people, mostly young people.'
and mostly reared in ai- en-i-
ronment where traditional
values of family, community.
faith. hard work. and patriot-
ism remain strong.' '
"Small wonder we put our
small towns tip on a pedestal
- they're helping to preserve
the American dream."

Small Towns in America"


Weatherization cont'd-


directs the Calhoun County\
'WAP. "We can spend up to
$2600 per home." '
Faye says a blower door is
:utilized in .qualifying homes
'to determine areas' of infiltra-
,tion so the structure can be
properly weatherized. "We
!have four things that are a
mustt" she points out. "We
replace the air conditioning
-filter, we insulate the hot
.water heater, we insulate the
hot water line five feet out,
:and we install low flow show-


er heads."
Janme Bailey's home is also
receiving a new front and
back door. along with a cou-
ple of window s. An unvented
heater is being replaced by a
vented heater. "It is going to
make a huge difference." she
says. Janie also qualified for
the SHIP (State Housing
Initiative Partnership) pro-
gram and those funds are
being combined with WAP
money to make the necessary
home improvements.
.Faye notes that weather-
ization funds: are still avail-
able this year and she urges
anyone -in need of assistance
to apply. As for income guide-
lines, a single person with an
income up to $14,700 could
qualify, as would a family of
four earning up to $30,000'.
Add $5100 for each addition-
al family member to deter-
mine, if you are eligible.
To apply for weatheriza-
tion funds, contact Faye
Bailey at 674-8046 or 674-

Dear, Editor:
Please allow me to offer my
defense of a positive vote for
our consolidation project.
Our county is flood and
hurricane prone, and mobile
home dwellers are among the
first to be asked to evacuate.
Many of us are aged; crippled
and our shelters are few,
therefore another place of
refuge can be found in a stur-
dily constructed high school.
This may serve that purpose.
The expanded curriculum
of a modern high school will
be conducive to cut our
dropout rate, budgeting,
upholstering, landscaping,
horticulture, seamstressing,
tailoring, pastry chef, alter-
ing, accounting, fish farming.
These and many more can
help the potential early leaver
to see a future without the
tuition and other expenses of
furthering an education.
Many trades offer as much or
more independence as col-
lege. Oh, those military
bound can be given a jump
start in R.O.T.C. We can offer
beginning training to the
future wife, mother, bread-
winner, truthfully the butch-
er, baker and the candlestick
maker, the single parent.
Yes, we need a boys' and
girls' club, debating teams,
choral groups, mentors,
mechanics, role models.
Let's think of the C.N.A. the
beautician, the barber, future
homemaker, the beginning
license practitioner.'
Being a lover of every
child, their future is more
important to me than any
business establishment.
Don't misunderstand me, I
have always been busy, but
never in business.
Humbly submitted by
Anna B. Baker

Dear Editor:
I am coming to you today
as a concerned American,
father,' grandfather and,
hopefully great' grandfather.
one day, as a disabled
American vet, who shed
blood halfway around the
world. With the belief that
this represents one nation
under God. uidi\isible. liber-
ty, and justice for all.
On October 10, the School
Board of Calhoun County
was asked to make one of the
most important decisions of
their lives. Better still, one of
the most important decisions
that effect the children's lives
and generations to come. and
they 'were unable to do so.
After about 5 decades, the
superintendent that we have
now. finally decided to bring
it to the table after a \ear to
15 months of study, analyz-
ing the situation. doing dif-
ferent, surveys, -countless
amounts of dollars spent into
it. It was a waste of time for
15 months, it was known
that 2 of the board members
were not going to support
this consolidation :situation
at all. "The state has made it
very plain and clear that they
are not going to put money
into the schools. We have 5.
board members all together.
Three of them in the begin-
ning were for the consolida-
tion. Reason or another, at
the end of the day, when the
battle raged on, time come to
vote, they betrayed, the
superintendent. Mrs. Mary
Sue Neves, in a military situ-
ation, she would be a coura-
geous general. She just did-
n't have the supporting cast.
Mrs. .Neves had visions of
tearing down the halls of
despair, building the bridges
of hope over troubled water.
But again, she found herself
alone..Five generations of
superintendents prior to her,
no one brought this issue up.
They didn't have the nerve
that Mrs. Neves has to put
herself on the line for all the
children of Calhoun County.
For that I want to thank you
for your personal sacrifice.
She couldn't have gone alone
just like the other five super-
intendents did in the past,
even though she did bring
the issue up.
I've heard individuals say
to "leave Altha alone." I feel
Altha has been left alone for
almost 5 decades. Let's go
back in history to see where
we were, where we are and
where we hope to go. About


5 decades ago the state sug-
gested the schools be consol-
idated, and, they actually
closed Mayhaw School but
didn't close the one in Altha.
They didn't even ask the
black people what they
thought about it one way or
the other. At that time, what
we had was taxation without
representation. Altha resi-
dents refused to go to school
with black kids 40 years ago,
and nothing has changed.
.Years passed by to where


we had to build a new high
school. At that time the state
was saying we could consoli-
date. We built the high school
in Blountstown, it was sug-
gested that we build it so
both the schools could com-
bine. But there again, the
superintendent didn't want
to upset the residents of
Altha. Residents of Altha did-
n't want their children going
to school with the black chil-
dren. Leave Altha lone.
I feel Altha has been a pri-
vate school funded by local,
state, and federal dollars. I
believe somewhere that is
against the law. It is a shame
this day and time we are talk-
ing about segregation. Some
say, "Don't make a racial
issue out of it." I'm sure
there are people and even
teachers that would love to
see the combining of schools,
but they are afraid of retalia-
tion. "We say not a racial
issue," well let's go back.
I can remember when the
schools were first integrated,
no black parents wanted
their child to play extra cur-
ridular activities where they
would have to take them to
Altha. They didn't want their
child to endure racial slurs,
things that a child shouldn't
have to go through. Just a
few weeks ago, an opponent
team came to play against
Altha and there was a racial
comment made. These kids
shouldn't have to hear racial
,slurs, no matter what their
race is. We all have souls,
feelings, and hearts.
People call themselves
Christians. The Jesus I know
stated, "Suffer not little chil-
dren, come unto me," and
"Whatever you do to one you
do to me also." Ask yourself
a question, would we want
anyone to treat our children
the way we treat others?
Plant a gocid seed, you will
reap a good harvest. What
kind of harvest would you
produce' What kind of seed
would you plant? A seed of
love or hate?
I will sign this as a con-
cerned child of God.

Lady Tigers win


district!!


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
The Blountstown Lady
Tigers have captured the dis-


trict championship title once
again, defeating Sneads in
one of the most exciting
matches of the season.
BHS hosted the district


I


tournament last week and
faced the Lady Pirates
Thursday night for the title.
The Tigers fell short, 11-25,
in the first game, then made
a comeback in game two,
winning 25-19. The nail biter
was game three when the
score was tied repeatedly,
then finally ended with BHS
on top, 29-27. Sneads won a
close game four, 23-25, forc-
ing the Tigers into a game five
situation. BHS sealed the vic-
tory at 15-11 to take the
championship.
"I was very proud of our
girls," says Coach Tanya
Durham. "It was exciting!
Both teams played hard. It
was a total team effort. Even
the girls on the bench were
cheering! The girls on the
floor couldn't have done it
without them."
Holly Jeppson brought in
21 points for the Tigers and
slammed down 10 kills. She
also had five aces, three digs
and five blocks. Molly Fagen
provided 22 points, six digs,
three blocks, and three kills.
Laura Kastli contributed 19
points, 10 digs, a block, and
11 kills. Lauren Wood offered
15 points, an ace, three
blocks, 23 sets, and three
kills. Dianna Glaze had 11
points, four digs, a block, and
six kills.
The Lady Tigers were set
to face Wewa in the regional
quarterfinals at BHS Tuesday
night (details unavailable at
press time). If they won, they
will advance to the semifinals
Saturday at 2 p.m. Coach
Durham expects the match to
be played at BHS.


"We appreciate all the sup-
port," Coach Durham notes.
"We'd like for everybody to
continue to come out and
support the girls. Especially
in those close games, the
crowd can bring them on
through." .

Lady Wildcats end


season at district


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
An exciting season came
to an end too soon for the
Altha Lady Wildcats when
they were defeated in the first
round of the district tourna-
ment.
The Cats faced Sneads at
Blountstown last Tuesday
and lost, 18-25, 19-25, 12-
25.
Team leaders were Joy
Capps with eight kills, six
points, four aces, and a
'block, along with Tory
Lipford who brought in eight
points and an ace. ,
"We got off to a great start,
but we could not maintain.


any momentum," says Coach
Mary McClellan. "When we
got our serves, in and
attacked the ball, our suc-
cess was high. When we did
not do this, our success was
low. This is typical play with
an inexperienced team.. Every
player on the team is either
new or playing a different
position."
.Altha will bid farewell to
two seniors, Joy Capps and
Ashley Adkins. "We wish both
success with their futures,"
Coach McClellan remarks.
On behalf of the Lady
Wildcats, Coach McClellan
extends her appreciation to
everyone who supported
them this season.

Tigers clinch fourth straight district title





Dominate Chipley 38-9 to remain unbeaten


Regardless of the outcome
of this Friday night's football
game between Holmes
County and Blountstown, the
Tigers are the 2006 District 2
Class 2B Champions. The
38-9 victory over Chipley at
Bowles Field last Friday night
clinched the title for the
Tigers for the fourth consecu-
tive year.
Chipley and Vernon will
play this Friday night for the
runnerup spot. Should
Blountstown lose to Holmes
County, the Tigers would still
be district champs having
beaten both Chipley and
Vernon in the regular season.
Holmes County won their
first game of the season last
week against Bozeman. If the
Tigers play to their potential,
Holmes County should not
pose a threat. However,
Chipley won their contest
with Holmes County in over-
time. earlier this season, so
they shouldn't be taken light-
ly.
A win over Holmes County
and the Tigers would host
Wewa in the final regular sea-
son game of the year. We
would then face the run-
nerup from the 2B district
from the west which includes
Bratt Northview, Baker and
South Walton. In the second
round, we would face the
winner of our runnerup,
probably Chipley, and their
winner, most likely Bratt
Northview. In the third
round of the playoffs we will
probably face Ocala Trinity
Catholic or Jacksonville
Trinity Christian. 'According
to Coach Jordan, the team
from Ocala who embarrassed
us last year, returns all 11
offensive starters. The team
from. Jacksonxille. 'who we
beat two years ago there, is
loaded \ith senior talent this
year. The Tiger-s %-%ill hav*- 1'
take them on one at a time.
There was little doubt after
the first quarter Friday night
that Blountstown was a
much better football team
than Chipley in a game many
had thought would be close
to the end. Chipley asked for
a 'running clock midway
through the third quarter. or
the score could have been
much worse.
"Our offense really clicked
in the first half and we have
to credit our offensive line
with some outstanding block-'
ing," coach Jordan said
Monday. '"We averaged 9.4
yards per carry and we didn't
have to throw the ball much.
Our defense continues to
play well as they have all sea-
son.,
On the Tigers' first posses-
sion Friday night. quarter-
back Cory Cox' connected
with Jonathan "Lockhart ori
the first play for 30 yards.
Timothy Copeland rushed for
15 followed by Ryan Baker on
a blast for 13. On fourth and
12 from the 23, Cox lofted a
pass to the endzone where
Lockhart jumped above twp
defenders and grabbed the
ball with his fiingertips for a'
touchdown. Jared Lilly
kicked the point after.
On Chipley's next play,.

District 2 Class 2B champi-
ons, 8-0 regular season with two,
to go. The Tigers secured our
fourth straight championship
with a big 38-9 win 'over The
Chipley Tigers at Bowles Field
this past Friday night. The
Tigers also won .our 31st regular
season game in a row.
This was a matchup for the
'District Championship that the
BHS Tigers dominated from start
to finish. The Tigers' scored 14
points in the 1st quarter and 18
in the 2nd to lead 32-7 at half-
time. We had 291 rushirig yards,
on 31 attempts for a 9.4 average
per carry. The offensive line did
*an outstanding job of blocking
for our backs all; night. The
Tigers attempted only 8 passes


Lockhart came up with an
interception. Blountstown
drove to the Chipley 6 only to
fumble the ball back. Three
plays later however, Ryan
Baker recovered a Chipley
fumble at the Chipley 10.
Ryan Baker waltzed through
the middle for an easy touch-
down. King's PAT put the
Tigers up 14-0.
Chipley put together a 13
play, 81 yard drive in the sec-
ona quarter and scored on a
32 yard pass play for their
only touchdown of the night.
Six plays later, the Tigers
scored- 'again with Baker
going in from the 10.
'Another bad snap resulted in
no extra point. The Tigers
were up 20-7 following a low
snap on the PAT. .
After forcing, a Chipley
punt, Timothy Copeland
popped to the outside and
sprinted 59 yards for a
touchdown. Another low
snap on the PAT left the score
at 26-7.
Just before intermission,
the Tigers put together a 6
play, 67 yard drive capped off
by a ,four 'yard: blast by
-Copeiand. The PAT -lailed.
but the Tigers were in.total
control, 32-7.
'Chipley got their safety
early in \ he third quarter
when Lockhart intercepted a
pass in the Tiger endzone
and, tried to run it out. He
fumbled in. the endzone .but
recovered the ball. The play
was ruled a safety and two
points for Chipley. The score
at that point was
Blountstown 32, Chipley 9.
Blountstown took the sec-
ond lialf kickoff and wasted
little time scoring., Cox
passed to Garry Reed for 14
yards before Ryan Baker set
sail' for 56 yards and his third
score of the night. The PAT
failed for the third time on
the night, but the final points
were on the scoreboard:'38-
9.
Blountstown ran the ball
31 times for 291 yards and.5
touchdowns. Cory Cox com-
pleted 4 of 8 passes for 90
yards and one touchdown,
and had no interceptions.
Ryan Baker rushed for
135 yards on 10 carries arid
three touchdowns. Timothy
Copeland added 114 yards
on 10 rushes and scored
twice. Demarco Johnson had
16 yards on 4 carries and
Malcolm 'Ivory added 11
yards on 4 carries.- Cox

Arrow of
Truth
by Rev. R. W Waterman .

Focus
I Timothy 6:11
Its easy to get out of focus
in Christian service and per-
mit our original vision to
become blurred, that "first
love" that characterized our
original call to service for
Christ. That love did not ask
for money, praise, or reward,
but simply a chance to serve
Jesus just because we loved
Him.
Sometimes even pastors
who struggle through the
years with little monetary
goods can so gradually, with-
out noticing it, lose the focus,
that original vision, and
make service equal with pay,
praise, or promotion.
But, wait a minute! Why
should pastors be held to a
stricter code than everybody
else, when it comes to focus
or motivation? Doesn't every
church have its share of
leaders, motivated by self
rather than by the Holy
Spirit? Even though they are
not on the payroll, yet having
lost their focus, they now
depend for motivation on the
acclaim from others praise,
appreciation, compliments,
official status, power rather
than just that simple, meek
"first love" that serves Jesus
just because of love!
True leadership in your
life or mine is characterized
by righteousness, godliness,
faith, love, patience, meek-
ness."

Peavy at Peavy Funeral Home

Plans for the 2007
Calhoun-Liberty American
Cancer Society Relay for Life

All Night at the Movies"
A Relay kick-off meeting
will be held at the WT Neal

in size we make up for in

Events Investigated During toe Past Week by BPD and CCSD


Father and son

caught with truck

load of marijuana

A Calhoun County father and son
were jailed Friday morning in Liberty
County after officers found 26 six-
foot marijuana plants in their truck.
John Gordon Layfield, 54, and
his son Patrick Wayne Layfield, 21,
of Blountstown, each face felony
marijuana cultivation and possession
charges.
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
Officer Ros Welborn said the pair
was stopped on Forest Road 118 at
7:17 a.m. He said they offered no
resistance to officers.
He said the FWC, Liberty County
Sheriff's Office and U.S. Forest
Service were working in a joint effort
to arrest marijuana growers inside
the national forest.
Welborn said officers worked all
day Friday pulling up over 200 addi-
tional marijuana plants from several
sites, some of the plants as tall as
eight-feet. He said the estimated
street-value of the plants is $60,000
to $100,000.


Cypress harvester

arrested for damage

to competitor's logs

A local cypress log harvester who
accused a competitor of stealing his
goods landed behind bars last week.
Brandon Causey is charged with
filing a false report, burglary of a
structure and criminal mischief.
According to the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office, Causey contacted
authorities last month and accused
James Flournoy of stealing cypress
logs he had harvested from the
Apalachicola River. Flournoy said
the logs belonged to him and
advised he had pulled the dead head
cypress from the river and taken
them to his saw mill, where he has
operated for the past seven years.
He said he photographed the logs for
a specific customer in Alabama. A
couple days later, he said Causey
said the logs were his and accused
him of stealing them. Causey then,
directed his complaint to the Sheriff's
Office and Dep. Nick Keller investi-
gated the report. Causey told him his
name and number were marked on
the logs.


The case was turned over to Inv.
Ken Futch and Flournoy told him he
could prove Causey had entered his
mill after he had harvested the logs,
then painted his name on them.
Flournoy provided photographs of
the logs, indicating Causey's name
had been painted on the top sides.
Inv. Futch noted in his report, "This is
significant in that these logs are
larger and weigh hundreds of
pounds. In the yard they require a
fork lift for moving from one place to
another. As the logs laid in the photo,
it became obvious that in order for.
the painted names to appear upright,
the logs would have had to fall from
the forklift in this exact position."
Flournoy also proved that the
logs were trimmed and cut in half at
his mill. The trimmed off ends were
still at the mill and were a clear
match. However, the new ends had
Causey's initials, indicating he had
painted them after Flournoy had
trimmed them. Due to the paint,
Flournoy said the,value of the logs
*had decreased from $1500 to $750.
Causey was booked into the
Calhoun County Jail last Tuesday
and given a conditional release later
that day.


Man leads deputy

on chase after

stealing mom's car

A Blountstown man who took his
mother's car without permission was
arrested after a short pursuit early
Thursday.
Nicholas Benedetto, 22, is
charged with fleeing and attempting
to elude a police officer, reckless
driving, resisting arrest without vio-
lence and driving while his license
was suspended or revoked.
According to the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office, Dep. William Dalton
responded to the stolen car com-
plaint just before 2 a.m. and spotted
Benedetto on Mayhaw Drive. He
then sped through an intersection
and failed to stop for the deputy. A
chase ensued onto Yates Street and
then Ridge Avenue where Benedetto
bailed out of the vehicle. He was
later located under an abandoned
house on Ridge Avenue.
Benedetto remained in custody
at press time.

Dear Editor:
I would like to share some
.thoughts with you and your
readers about an issue that I
find troubling.
The natural trail! While
our city officials have done a
splendid job in executing and
completing this project (per-
haps complete is not the cor-
rect term), as I'm quite sure
there are still features of this
endeavor yet to be done.
Rumor has it that a horse
trail is still to be added, etc.
Hopefully, we all recognize
the fact that we are fortunate
to live in one of a dwindling
number of "populated pris-
tine" areas that are left in
this nation. And as such we
should all feel the obligation
'to keep it so -- not indiscrim-
inately tossing things out of
pur vehicle windows, thus
contributing to a never end-
ing trail of litter. Can you
honestly say that you can go
so little as a 1/4 mile any-
where without seeing litter?
However, I digress from
the point I hoped to make. It
is a nature trail but many of
the users, joggers, cyclists,
families with young children,
etc.; I don't think have actu-
ally given the term "nature"
much thought.
I agree it is lovely howev-
er -just because it is now,
paved does not and should
hot be assumed to be safe.
Proper precautions should be
considered when using the
trail. Vigilance should be
number one, if you are walk-
ing as a family with young
children do not let them run
ahead. We must remember,
that humanity has and is
increasingly encroaching on
the natural habitat of many
of the indigenous wildlife in
this part of the world. We
dlrive them back-in th is case,
ir further and further into the
swamps and woods.
. Why then are we surprised
when they come back into
bur populated areas? With
smaller -and smaller open
areas where they are striving
to survive. usually these'
shrunken areas cannot sup-
port the wildlife population
that has become increasingly
crowded. Life sustaining
sustenance for all is unavail-
able. Ever" li\iing creaturee
has certain requirements,
and food and drink is of para-


mount importance.
How many times have I
heard the statement 'They
are more afraid of you than
you are of them," What pure
unadulterated nonsense!! A
non-sequiturs!!
There are wild boar in
these swamps and woods.
Make boars that have tusks 4
and 5 inches long and weigh
300 plus pounds. They are
fast and they can be mean;
the wild sows are no different
in temperament than any
other creature with their
young to protect. And if for
one moment you think that
when a human comes on. the
scene, they run away! Well
try that thought again. They
will chase you and they are
much faster, meaner and
more agile than you can
imagine. If the wild boar feels
threatened, whether it be
cause of their young or their
territory it will defend it
against all comers. And the
sows with young (whether
you see the young or not) is
twice as dangerous as their
male counterpart.
Let's not forget the snakes!
There is nothing about a cot-
tonmouth that is shy or retir-
ing from personal experi-
ence I know that even when
not threatened it can and will
go on the offensive for any
reason or no reason at all
that I can fathom.
Of course there are a myr-
iad of life surrounding us
from boars, bears, wildcats
and deer. to spiders and
snakes. and everything in
between.
The bottom line, as I see it,
is divest your vocabulary of
the word, complacent! When
you wish to use the nature
trails, please member the
"nature". It can be a wonder-
ful way to pass the time with
family on a walk, or to exer-
cise eg: walking, jogging or
cycling and it can be a good
way ease the stress of your
day. Caution, vigilance and a
.good dollop of common sense
will stand you in good stead.
Enjoy the trails ,hut do so
after understanding the
potential risks.
L. Jarvis


Dear Editor,
It's that Lime o- year when
people start their shopping.

Santa's are popping up here


and there. When I see these
Santa's, questions also pop
up.
Do people stop and ask
Christ; "do you want me to
teach my children about
Santa?"
Do people really worry and
fear God? Do people respect
Him (Christ) enough to each
only the truth.
It's the time of year when
people do teach their children
about Santa.
Why? He's not biblical. As
much effort as it takes to talk
about Santa, people could be
teaching about Christ.
Parents don't love their
children less because they
teach about Jesus. It's more
important to have faith in
Jesus Christ.
When your baby was min-
utes old and you held him or
her for the first time you
knew that they were a bless-
ing from God. So why hurt
God by playing Santa with
them. Why not teach the
Gospel to them.
What is more important in
your child's life. You being
entertained by watching your
children believe a lie. or
knowing that they deserve
the truth. Learning about
Christ.
Who or what comes first.
Does Christ deserve to come
first, and there be no sec-
onds?

Dear Editor:
When Florida property
owners head to the polls on
November 7, they will not
only have the opportunity to
cast votes on our .State's
elected leadership but also to
vote on Amendment 8 a
measure. designed to protect
private property rights.
Earlier this year, the
Florida Legislature wisely
took action following the U.S.
Supreme Court's. controver-
sial 5-4 split decision in the
Kelo v. New London eminent
domain case. .In Kelo, the
Court ruled the City of New
London, Connecticut could
lawfully use its power of emi-
nent domain to seize the
homes of Susette Kelp and
several neighbors not for a
specific public "use" such as
a road or school as provided


in our Constitution's Fifth
Amendment, but for the pub-
lic "purpose" of economic
development.
In response to the Kelo
decision, lawmakers forged a
two-track legislative solution
designed to reverse Kelo in
Florida and effectively. end
this form of eminent domain
abuse in our state.
First, the Legislature
enacted strong and meaning-
ful changes in the state
statutes governing the use of
eminent domain to provide
,immediate protections for
Florida property owners.
These statutory reforms were
signed into law by Governor
Jeb Bush in May and prohib-
it the taking of property
under the guise of blight or
slum eradication and prevent
government from selling or
transferring properties taken
through eminent domain for
a period of ten years. These
protections are now the law
of the land in Florida and are
considered the strongest
post-Kelo reforms in the
nation.
However, legislative lead-
ers also saw a need to create
a second long-term layer of
protection. They understood
without any safeguard in our
State Constitution, at any
time a future Legislature
might meet, Florida land
owners could lose the hard-
won property rights recently
restored.
The Legislature proposed
Amendment 8 which will
require a three-fifths super-
majority vote of both houses
of the Florida Legislature to
make changes to the legisla-
tion governing the transfer of
properties taken through
eminent domain.
Any Floridian who believes
in the, sanctity of private
property ownership and that
government's power of emi-
nent domain should be limit-
ed to true public uses should
strongly support Amendment
8.

Notice to the Public of Finding of
No Significant Impact on the
Environment and Request for
Release of Funds and Removal of
Environmental Conditions

The Calhoun County Board of County Commissioners
intends to undertake a road paving project to be funded
by a Florida Small Cities Community Development Block
Grant. The project will pave the following roads,
including providing drainage swales and retention as
necessary: NW Center Lake Road, NW Walter Potts
Road between NW Center Lake Road and NW Shelton
Boulevard, NW Bonnel Road), NW Felix Flanders Road,
NW Bates Road, NW Backwoods Road, NW Musgrove
Road from NW Harrell Road to Ring Jaw Branch.

The roads are already in use, and there is no proposed
change in land use for the existing residential/rural areas
in which the roads are located.

An environmental review of the project has been
conducted 'in accordance with 24 CFR 58, and it has
been determined that the activities will have no
significant impact on the environment., Stormwater
permits may be required, as well as a National Pollutant
Discharge Elimination System permit. If permits are
determined to be required, the project will be designed
accordingly and permits will be obtained prior to bidding.
State/regional agencies have reviewed the project
without issuing any environmental concerns, other than
indicating the potential applicability of permitting.
Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), as
described in the National Environmental Policy Act, will
not be prepared. Engineering and administration services
funded by the grant are exempt from environmental
review. No further environmental review of the project
will be conducted.

An Environmental Review Record (ERR), which
documents the environmental review of the project, is on
file at the Calhoun County Emergency Management
Office, Room G40, Calhoun County Courthouse, 20859
Central Avenue East, Blountstown, FL 32424 and is
available for public examination. All interested parties are
invited to submit written comments to the attention of
Deborah Belcher, CDBG Consultant, 5378 Carisbrooke
Lane, Tallahassee, FL 32309. Written comments must be
received on or before November 10, 2006. All comments
will be considered, and no administrative action will be
taken until comments are resolved.

The project described above will be funded with Florida
Small Cities Community Development Block Grant funds
from the State of Florida and the U.S.. Department of
Housing and Urban Development (HUD), under Title I of
the Housing and Community Development Act. The
Calhoun County Board of County Commissioners is
certifying to the State. and to HUD that it, and its chief
elected official, in his or her official capacity, consent to
accept the jurisdiction of the federal courts if an action is
brought to enforce responsibilities related to
environmental reviews, decision making, and action; and
that these responsibilities have been satisfied. The legal
effect of the certification is that upon approval, Calhoun
County may expend CDBG funds and the State and HUD
will have satisfied their responsibilities under the National
Environmental Policy Act.

The Certification and Request for Release of Funds. aid
Removal of Environmental Conditions will. likely be
submitted to the Department of Community Affairs (DCA)
on or about November 13, 2006. DCA will then allow a 15
day comment period before taking any action on the
request. Objections will only be accepted by DCA if they
meet one of the following conditions: (1) the certification
was not executed by the County's environmental
certifying officer or another officer of the local
government approved by DCA; or (2) the ERR indicates
omission of a required decision, finding, or step
applicable to the environmental review process.
Objections must be prepared and submitted in
accordance with 25 C.F.R. 58 within 15 days following
DCA's receipt of the Request for Release of Funds. If you
have comments or objections, submit them to the Florida
Department of Community Affairs, Small Cities CDBG
Program, 2555 Shumard Oak Boulevard, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-2100 immediately to ensure that they are
received before the expiration of the comment period.
