CRIME


Two traffic crashes

in Carksvile lead

to pair of arrests
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Two separate accidents in Calhoun County
last Tuesday ended in arrests.
According to the Calhoun County Sheriffs
Office, the first case occurred just before 10:30
a.m. when ,a resident on SR 73 South advised
she returned home from work, heard a loud
noise, and discovered a BMW in the northbound
ditch outside her home.
Dep. Jared Nichols responded to the scene
and found Stephanie Strickland Lynn behind
the wheel. Dep. Nichols determined the vehicle
had been northbound when it drifted into the
southbound lane, into the ditch, and traveled an
estimated 100 yards. It appeared Lynn tried to
regain control at that point and pulled the vehi-
cle back on the. roadway, however, it began
rotating clockwise, crossed the lane, and landed
in the opposite ditch. Dep. Nichols noted in his
report the driver may have attempted to drive
the vehicle out of the ditch, but it became stuck.
While speaking with Lynn, Dep. Nichols
noted her speech was slurred. She was unable
to locate her drivers license and was unsteady
on her feet. She eventually admitted to taking
some medication. After failing a field sobriety
test, she was charged with DUI. An empty bottle
of Hydroxyzinc Pamoate pills was located. It was
later learned Lynn's license had been suspend-
ed for a prior DUI.
The second case occurred just after 9:30 p.m.
-when Dep. Eddie Dalton responded to a traffic
accident on SR 73 North. Ofc. David Creamer of
the Blountstown Police Dept. and Ofc. Tuning of
the Panama City Police Dept. were already at the
scene. Ofc. Tuning advised he witnessed a white.
male, later identified as Stephen Hobby, fleeing
the scene on foot. He said Hobby then returned
to the vehicle and retrieved a cell phone. Ofc.
Tuning offered, to call 911 and Hobby advised
everything was ine and he had someone coming
to help him. He then fled into the woods.
The vehicle sustained a massive amount of
damage. Hobby was located and charged with-
leaving the scene 'of an accident with property
damage, as well as violation of state probation.


institution of their choice.
Among the top individual winners were Fagen, who
came in second, and Leonard, who placed fourth.
Gold emblem individual winners were Fagen,
Leonard, and Stoltzfus. In addition, Herndon claimed
a silver emblem individual award.
According to a press release from the National FFA
Convention, the National FFA Forestry Career
Development Event is a competitive activity that tests
students' skills and knowledge in the area of forest
management. Event components include a general
forest knowledge exam, tree and equipment identifica-
tion, map interpretation, and compass practicum.
Each team competed at local and state levels for the
privilege of representing their state at the National
FFA Convention.

student members preparing for leadership and
careers in the science, business, and technology of
agriculture with 7242 local chapters in all 50 states,
Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. FFA strives to
make a positive difference in the lives of students by
developing their potential for premier leadership, per-
sonal growth, and career success.

CRIME


Colorado


fugitive


arrested


in Bristol,


then flees
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A woman wanted in
Colorado, along with her
accomplice, are behind bars
in Liberty County after being
nabbed in a traffic stop
Friday night.
Anita Lynn Albert, who
turned 32 the day .of her
arrest, has been charged
with escape, grand theft
auto, aggravated fleeing and
eluding, reckless driving,
possession of a controlled
substance, and possession
of drug paraphernalia.
Evelyn Legg Klages, 51,
the driver of the vehicle, has
been charged with posses-
sion of a controlled sub-
stance, a schedule 4 narcot-
ic, and drug paraphernalia.
According to the Liberty
County Sheriffs Office, Dep.
Timothy Partridge pulled
Klages over on Shuler Street
off SR65 just after 10:30
p.m. for reckless driving. As
she reached for her drivers
license, he spotted a pill bot-
tle in her purse with differ-
ent shaped tablets. He
inquired about them and she
pulled a bag of crystal meth
from the. bottle, along with
two kinds of pills. She was
placed under arrest and
seated in his patrol car.
Albert was in the backseat
of the vehicle where a search
turned up a hypodermic
needle and a spoon contain-
ing meth. She was placed
under arrest and Dep.
Shiver, who arrived to assist,
put her in his patrol car
while the search of the vehi-
cle continued. Dep. Partridge
went on to find more pills in
the driver's console. As he
searched, Albert managed to
escape from the patrol car,
flee the scene and steal a
truck. She was apprehended
after a short pursuit.
The vehicle search was
finally completed with a pipe
used to smoke meth, a set of
scales, razor blades, and cig-
arette rollers discovered.
Authorities learned Albert
was wanted by Colorado offi-
cials after failing to show up
to a court ordered halfway
house. She is being held on a
$65,000 bond in Liberty
County. Bond has been set
at $22,500 for Klages. They
are also wanted for question-
ing in a Hernando Co. case.

KELLI'S CORNER'

By Kelli Peacock, News Editor


I Gotta Respond
It's killing me.
I just placed Mike Willis'
letter to the editor in the
space at right. Those of you
who know me won't be sur-
prised I'm chomping at the
bit to respond so, at the end
of a busy Monday, I'm going
to indulge myself and offer
my thoughts on the subject.
Prepare yourselves... read
Mike's letter then come back
to me. Keep in mind, what
I'm about to say is nothing
personal against Mike Willis.
In fact, I wish more people
would take an active interest
in local government as he
has. I have admired his per-
sistence and tenacity on
some county issues. But,
Mike, we're going to have to
agree to disagree on this one,
buddy.
Goat Day is sponsored
each year by the Blountstown
Rotary Club. This club of
around a couple dozen local
business leaders gathers for
an hour every single
Wednesday for the sole pur-
pose of serving the communi-
ty. If you noticed on your
drive into Sam Atkins Park
last Saturday, there were
signs lining the roadway
detailing some of the projects
they support. Not a cent goes
into any member's pocket.
Every dime goes back into
our community.
Where does your $5
admission price wind up?
After paying overhead for top
notch entertainers such as
"Clutch" and other expenses,
the profit goes right back into
Calhoun County. Check a
few college campuses and
you'll find some former
Blountstown and Altha stu-
dents who might not other-
wise be able to pay their
tuition if it weren't for a
scholarship from the
Blountstown Rotary Club.
You might also peruse the
halls of some area hospitals
and rehab facilities where
adults who wanted a second
chance at an education
received., that opportunity.
courtes.t of the Rotary Club.


and are now employed as
nurses. The Goat Day admis-
sion is also shared with the
Pioneer Settlement which
helps them provide matching
funds for much needed
grants. Of course, I'm only
scratching the surface here.
Rotary supports dozens of
community causes.
As with any organization,
there are a handful of mem-
bers who put in hundreds of
volunteer hours to produce
events such as Goat Day. In
the Rotary Club, these self-
less individuals don't just
give their time, they also
cough up $100 per quarter in
membership dues. You read
that correctly...it adds up to
$400 per year out of their
own pockets. Not to mention
time away from their busi-
nesses which always costs
money. Why would they do
this? Because they care
about Calhoun County and
believe it's an investment
.worth making.
With all that said, I'll glad-
ly scrounge up $5 and give
up one day a year at our
park. In the end, I think it's
money well spent.

Worth Quoting
One evening 'an old
Cherokee told his grandson
about a battle that goes on
inside people.
He said, "My son, the bat-
tle is between two 'wolves'
inside us all. One is Evil. It is
anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow,
regret, greed, arrogance, self-
pity, guilt, resentment, inferi-
ority,' lies, 'false pride, superi-
ority, and ego.
"The. other is Good. It is
joy, peace, love, hope, sereni-
ty, humility, kindness,
benevolence, empathy, gen-
erosity, truth, compassion
and faith."
The grandson thought
about it for a' minute and
then asked his grandfather,
"Which wolf wins?"
The old Cherokee simply
replied, "The one you feed."

Dear Editor:
Goat Day has become a
calamity! Admission fees
are just another TAX to the
moral fabric of this commu-
nity. This festivity has
become to be about MONEY
and not community spirit.
The merchants charge a
higher than normal fee to the
attending public. Civic is
community {of citizens) mind-
ed and not typically econom-
ic hostage takers. Civic
organizations that need
money should hold events
outside of publicly owned
property, i.e. Atkins Park or
not charge admission.
Thanks for the nice fire-
works this 4th of July. I for-
got how much was the
admission?
We are a poor but proud
community that still holds to
our values while sharing
moral social gatherings.
There are very few communi-
ties left that stay as united as
we are to this day. We are,
however, politically at odds
as we should be.
You should not have to
pay again to enjoy what is
yours already. Atkins Park
belongs to the people of
Calhoun County. Atkins Park
is your tax dollars at work. It
is equipped and maintained
by your tax dollars. It is a
Calhoun County treasure. It
does not belong to anyone
else. Do not be fooled by any
notion other than THE PEO-
PLE OF CALHOUN COUNTY
hold title to Atkins Park and
that the CALHOUN COUNTY
BOARD OF COMMISSION-
ERS are the deeded responsi-
ble parties of record.
However.' to use the park last
Saturday. you had to pay
admission. The all mighty
dollar had to be collected first
and foremost. How revolting
and offensive this was is a
question each citizen must
ask himself or herself. I, for
one, while mentally chal-
lenged, will state that it was
plain wrong and morally cor-
rupt and should be corrected.
Many people, similar to
myself, plain refused to be
held prisoner to paying
admission. As poorly planned
and conceived as this year's
event was, this project, hope-
fully, will not be a preview of
future Goat Days:. 1...
Please help find resolve so
future Goat Days, A CAL-
HOUN COUNTY YEARLY
ACTIVITY, can continue with
community PRIDE and SPIR-
IT.
Calhoun County
Concerned Citizen,
Michael Willis
To Whom It May Concern:
As students of
Blountstown High School,
we are very concerned with
the way our spirit has been
put on hold.
As most people know, stu-
dents love attending BHS
sports functions by showing
their pride and cheering their
team to victory. In recent
events, the principal of BHS,
Mr. Keith Summers of Liberty
County, has put a damper on
all of our spirits by not allow-


ing us to show our spirit and
support for our fellow class-
mates and friends. We all
have been disappointed at
recent games because Mr.
Summers has threatened
students with different disci-
plinary actions for simply
showing a little school spirit.
We would like to ask the
community to come out
Thursday night at Liberty
County High School's gym to
support your Lady Tigers and
show your pride, no matter
the limitations.
Concerned BHS Students
(Editor's note: Signatures
were too numerous to list.
The County Record contacted
Keith Summers to
investigate the complaint.
He advised students are
welcome to cheer, but
can't be on the game floor.)
Dear Editor:

BHS will face Liberty County Thursday for shot at final four



Lady Tigers advance to regionals


There was plenty to celebrate Saturday afternoon when the BHS Lady Tigers defeated Baker on
the home court to advance to the regional championship. The match is set for Thursday at 6
p.m. CT at Liberty County High School. The winner will be in the final four at state.


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
The Blountstown Lady
Tigers defeated Baker
Saturday afternoon in the
second round of the regional
playoffs to advance to, the
championship. The match
* will pit the Tigers against
their rivals from across' the
river, the Liberty County Lady
Bulldogs. Game time is


Thursday at 6 p.m. CT at
LCHS. The winner will move
on .to the final four in the
state playoffs.
The Tigers won 25-23, 18-
25, 25-23, 25-22.
Molly Fagen had six kills,
five digs, two blocks, 17 sets,
and 22 service points.
Lauren Wood provided one
ace, four kills, three digs, one
block, 19 sets, and 20 service
points.


Laura Kastli contributed
11 kills, 16 digs, two blocks,
and 10 service points.
Holly Jeppson added 10
kills, five digs, two blocks,
and seven service points.
Dianna Glaze offered 10
kills, six digs, and 15 service
points.
Chelsea Faircloth. chipped
in an ace, four digs, and 14
service points ..
6The team was focused
and they did what it took to
win," says Coach Tanya
Durham. "They wanted to


give themselves a chance to
play this next game and they
did what they needed to do."
During the regular season,
the Tigers lost two close
matches to LCHS and are
excited about the rematch.
'The girls are improved," says
Coach Durham. "Through
hard work and the girls' ded-
ication to the volleyball pro-
gram, there's going to be
improvement from the last
game. The girls are really
looking forward to the chal-
lenge. But I don't think it


really mattered that it had to
be Liberty County, our goal
was to put ourselves in a
position to go to state. It's
just setting goals and reach-
ing goals."
As a first year coach for
the Lady Tigers, Durham
says she immediately spotted
potential in this team. "I did-
n't have them in the summer,
but after I got to work with
them and saw the ability of
the girls, I told them from the
beginning they had what it
took to get to that point, but


we just had to work on some
things and set some goals.
We worked on one goal at a
time, reached it, and moved
to the next."
Coach Durham extends
her appreciation to all the
parents and fans who have
been supporting both her and
the entire team. 'The girls
have. enjoyed having people
come out and' support them.
Thursday that is going to
mean a lot to the girls. They
can be that seventh man on
the floor."

"This was the first game all
year we've had to play in

and I think we did a good job
of holding onto the football.
We lost one fumble, but I was
glad we got to play in the rain

HEAD COACH GREG JORDAN 4V000


by Coach Greg Jordan.
The Tigers improved to 9-0
regular season and finished dis--
trict play at 4-0 with a 36-6-
Homecoming win over Holmes
Co.-at a soaked Bowles Field
this past Friday night It was a
shame the weather kept us from
having Ihe parade, a lot of time,
money and effort by a lot of peo-
ple went unnoticed. The Tigers
Groivl on Thursday was ,a huge
success A special thanks to
Mrs. McGhee and Mrs. Howell
for all their effort and to, the
S.G.A. for all their help. Now-
back to football, the Tigers offen-
sively were traditionally unbal--
anced this game having 190
passing yards -vs- 140 rushing
yards for 330 total yards.. This
was the first chance we've had
to. throw the football in adverse'
conditions. We completed 10/14
passes tor..190 yards and 4
passing touchdowns which was
good for a dry held, much less
what we played on. Our running
backs slill averaged over 6 yards
per carry rushing 23 times for
140 yards. Offensively we must
Sbe able to pass and run the ball
effectively' to keep defense on'
their heels.
Speaking of defenses, how
about the Tiger Defense!


Holmes Co. had 28 rushes for
61 yards, a 2.2 average. and 6-
,15 passing for 69 yards for 130
total. Bonifay scored on their
last drive of the game while our
backups were getting valuable
playing time.
The Tigers finish up the regu-
Slar season against a familiar toe
from Wewahitchka this week at
home. The Gators will be play-
ing super hard this week as it is
their last game .,of. the year.
Wewa missed the playoffs in dis-
trict 1 class 1A and would like
nothing better than to spoil our
perfect season and finish with a
win. Tiger fans come out and
support these Tigers as we go
for our 33rd regular season vic-
tory in a row and 3rd perfect 10-
0 regular season. These things
don't happen everywhere or
very often, please come out and
show your support!
Congratulations to the Lady
Tigers Volleyball team for their
district championship and victory
over Baker in the 1st round of
the playoffs on Saturday. Good
luck against Liberty on
Thursday. We'll be cheering for
you!
Hope to see you at 'the
,games on Thursday (volleyball)"
and Friday night! GO TIGERS!!

BMS musical tribute to First Ladies Nov. 9
Every President of the United States has, without fail, given credit for much of his success to the woman
or women that have supported him along the way. He has recognized, and been grateful for, the lady that
has been a part of the team tha helped administer the incredible demands of running this powerful coun-
try. It is the reason presidents and citizens alike refer to the partner of the president as First Lady. In DEAR
ABBY the BMS choir makes a musical salute to these First Ladies. With traditional historical emphasis often
placed on the men that have made our country what it is, it might be said that too little credit has been
given to the women. With DEAR ABBY, the BMS choir hopes to reverse this trend and finally give credit where
credit it due! DEAR ABBY will be presented at the BHS Auditorium, Thursday, November 9th. There will be a
morning show at 9:30 a.m. for area students, The evening show is at 6:30 p.m. -.ere is NO admission charge.
Please come!

gram designed to educate
youth about the dangers of
tobacco use. The program
resulted in dramatic decreas-
es in teen smoking rates in
Florida, and became a model
for other states.
Since the Florida
Legislature has cut the pro-
gram's funding youth smok-
ing rates are no longer on a
rapid decline. Meanwhile,
the tobacco companies spend
more in Florida than any
other state pushing their
deadly products -over a bil-
lion dollars in Florida last
year alone.
Amendment 4, which
requires the state legislature
to restore funding to Florida's
successful youth tobacco
prevention program, is on
this November's ballot.
The amendment mandates
that 15. percent of Florida's
tobacco settlement dollars be
used to fund youth tobacco
prevention efforts. In recent
years Florida lawmakers have
slashed youth tobacco educa-
tion funding while the tobac-
co industry has increased
yearly statewide marketing
expenditures to more than $1
billion.
Florida's initial $70 million
education program in 1998
was cut to just $1 million in
2003. When the program
was adequately funded,
smoking rates among middle
and high schools students
dropped dramatically. Since
the legislature cut the fund-
ing, these declines are begin-
ning to level off.
Amendment 4 is spon-
sored by the American
Cancer Society, American
Heart Association, American
Lung Association and the
Campaign for Tobacco-Free

strong support, with a recent
poll showing 74 percent of
likely voters favoring its pas-
sage. Supporters of
Amendment 4 believe that
Florida owes it to its youth to
spend 15 percent of the
annual tobacco settlement
funds approximately $57
million each year fighting
Big Tobacco.
If Amendment 4 is passed
by Florida voters it will
require the legislature restore
funding to our state's youth
tobacco prevention program.
The funds would be reinstat-
ed a year from now on the
tenth anniversary of Florida's
historic legal settlement with
Big Tobacco. Locally, I can
say that the work of the
Calhoun County Students
Working Against Tobacco
(SWAT) is missing in our
community. SWAT is how I
began to launch out into the
deep waters of tobacco con-


trol and other causes. I
strongly urge each of you to
draw from the innermost part
of your soul and vote for a
program that impacts our
community.
Support Amendment 4
and you are helping save
thousands of Florida's young
people from a premature
death due to tobacco addic-
tion. Let's send a clear mes-
sage to our elected officials -
and the tobacco companies -
that Floridians will continue
to lead the way in reducing
the deadly consequences of
tobacco use.

Biography: .,
Tony 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.


A.J. Allmendinger became the latest open-wheel
defector last Tuesday when the Champ Car driver
signed a deal to drive for Team Red Bull in NASCAR.
Red Bull officials kept tabs on his efforts, then chose
him to join Brian Vickers as the fresh faces of their
upstart organization. The team also hired crew chief
Rick Viers, who guided Allmendinger during two
Craftsman Truck races. Team Red Bull is one of

Health care boards


now seeking members


TALLAHASSEE The
Florida Department of Health
(DOH) is seeking individuals
to serve as consumer mem-
bers for various health care
boards. DOH promotes and
protects the health of the
public by regulating health
care practitioners through
regulatory boards appointed
by the Governor and con-
firmed by the Senate.
To achieve this goal, each
board must have consumer
members. Consumer mem-
bers are' not required to be
formally trained or employed
in the health care profession
regulated by the particular
board, such as a teacher
serving on the Board of.
Pharmacy. Consumer mem-
bers help set policy, license
practitioners, and preside
over disciplinary actions.
Most boards meet quarter-
ly, usually a one to two-day
meeting in various locations
throughout the state. They
meet through teleconferenc-
ing or other technological
means as often as necessary.
Depending on location, mem-
bers either fly or drive to
meetings. Members are non-
paid volunteers; however, the
state reimburses travel
expenses, and members
receive $50 per day for each
day in attendance.
Persons interested in an
appointment to any regulato-
ry board may obtain a guber-
natorial questionnaire from
the' Governor's Executive
