Mail carrier finds unique

way to encourage local L

man serving in Iraq

BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Over the past few years, as countless sol-
diers have headed to Iraq for the war on terror-
ism, many locals have sent care packages filled
with a variety of necessities that help make life
a little easier for those serving our country. But
Blountstown mail carrier Eddie Flynn has
made an art out of honoring our nation's
heroes. .
Awhile back, one of Eddie's best friends,
Eugene Lamoureux was called to serve, leaving -
behind his wife and children. Eddie came up .
with the idea to send a bit of Florida overseas. .
He bought a colorful beach ball and took it
around the ,community, having Eugene's for-
mer neighbors send well wishes for his safe
return.
Recently, Eddie's friend, Steve Mears of
Blountstown, was called to serve in Iraq with
the Florida National Cuard. Like Eugene, Steve
left behind his wife, along with four children.
Eddie decided to come up with another unique
gift to encourage Steve in the long days ahead
away from his family.
*" went home and had a couple beers," he Bi.unitt,
says with a laugh. That's when he came up 'plate ne
with the idea to order aMajor League Baseball had the
home plate, have it emblazoned with the mes- pastors c
sage. "Steve Mears get home safe!", then have county,
it signed nith well wishes from family and friends.
For weeks, after a hectic day on his mail route, Eddie
has made the rounds to local businesses,- family mem-
bers' homes, and even churches, having all those who
know and love Steve sign this special plate. He even
had Paul "Tows" Mattice create a DVD with photos of
those who signed set to patriotic music.
"You pray for the troops all of them you don't know
but when you know somebody, it's different," Eddie

remarks. "For a guy like him to do what he's doing for
his country, leaving his wife and kids, it's heartbreak-
ing."
Steve's wife, Deneen, was particularly touched.
"Eddie Flynn is a totally selfless person, always think-
ing of others before himself and in today's world, peo-
ple like Eddie are hard to come by," she writes in a let-
ter to the editor in this week's edition. For a photo of the

ISO RATINGS IMPROVE


Local firefighter efforts could



save you money on insurance


ISO ratings improve in Blountstown
and Magnolia Fire Dept. districts
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
With homeowner's insurance skyrocketing across
Florida, Calhoun Countians can thank local firefighters
who may save you a nice chunk of change next year.
Both the Blountstown and Magnolia fire departments
have improved their Insurance Services Office (ISO) rating,
a figure that can factor into your homeowner's insurance
bill. According to Blountstown Fire Department (BFD)
Chief Ben Hall, ISO visits and evaluates fire departments
on their fire apparatus and equipment, water supply,
manpower or staffing and training. ISO then utilizes a
complex formula to assign a score to the'evaluated fire
department. For every 10 points the department moves up
one class.
"For the fire departments, it is a matter of pride," says
Chief Hall. "In a firefighter's eyes, the lower the ISO rating,
the better the fire department. In most cases, this is true.
There are only five ISO Class I fire departments in Florida.
I've been told it costs around $1 million per year to main-
tain a Class 1 rating. BFD isn't quite to that point."
Previously, the BFD received a split rating of 7/9.'
"Basically, that means that anywhere within Blountstown
Fire Department's initial response area and within 1000
feet of a fire hydrant received a Class 7. Everywhere else
received a 9." However, that rate recently improved. "On
August 15, we were evaluated again." .Hall reports.
"Thanks to the hard work of our firefighters, the dedica-
tion to improvement by our City Council members and
several grants, Blountstown Fire Department moved up to.
an ISO Class 6."
Chief Hall is pleased with what this could mean for local
residents. "Generally speaking, the lower the ISO class,
the better the insurance rate and the lower the premium,"
he points out, adding. "Of course, this depends on many
factors such as the risk of occupancy, structure type and
- even the insurance carrier. Depending on the individual
insurance carrier, some Blountstown residents should see
a reduction in their premium. ISO Class 6 is also more


--'

enticing to' large commercial enterprise, as it is easier for
them to get insured."
For the Magnolia VFD, the news is even a bigger deal.
Their very new fire department was previously unrated,
and has now received a 7/9. "Without the hard work of
our few volunteers, it could not have been done," says
Chief Kevin Parrish. "I was dreading the test, but was
relieved at how smooth the process went. For our county
fire departments, which receive $3,000 in county funding
per year, this is a huge accomplishment as the require-
ments for ISO ratings necessitate the ownership of expen-
sive equipment. The receipt of this equipment couldn't
have been achieved if it weren't for the three AFG and
forestry grants we were awarded in previous years, in
addition to all our support from the community during our
boot drives and various fundraisers." He adds that the rat-
ing will also be an economic tool that can help attract com-
panies to the industrial park in the Magnolia district.
Chief Parrish says his area has an extreme need for fill
locations for their water shuttle. "Currently, we are look-
ing for landowners along the Chipola river in our fire dis-
trict who are willing to support us by having a fill location
placed on their property. Anyone interested in doing this
will benefit by being within the 1000 foot requirement to a
fire hydrant." If you can help, please contact Chief Parrish
at 674-9175.

ELECTION


Calhoun


Counfians


leaning


more to


the right
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Although most Calhoun
Countians are registered as
Democrats, they leaned to
the conservative side on last
week's general election,
swinging to the Republican
side in three major races.
The majority of Calhoun
County voters supported
Republican Charlie Crist for
Governor (54.55%), Charles
Bronson for Commissioner
of Agriculture (66.16%), and
Bill McCollum for Attorney
General (54.55%). They did,
'however, stick with
Democrats in two races -
Alex Sink for Chief Financial
Officer (51.73%) and Bill
Nelson for U.S. Senator
(64.6%). Their votes followed
the trend across the state
with each winner locally also
claiming the victory in
Florida.
For some reason, Calhoun
County voters were split on
whether the district and
supreme court justices
should be retained. However,
each was put''back on the
bench.
As for constitutional
amendments, Calhoun
Countians agreed with the
rest of the state that each
proposed change should
pass.
Of the 8514 registered
voters in Calhoun County,
40.59% cast their ballots.

BMS Tigers open season



with big win over Hosford


BY BILLY JONES
BMS Basketball Coach

The Blountstown Middle
School Varsity boys opened
their new season Thursday a
week ago with a win over
Hosford, 54-26. Alexander
Garrett and Brandon Smith
led the scorers with 16 and
14 points each. Charles
Buggs added 7, Paul Mosley
and Roger Abbott added 5
each, Chris Wolfram 4, and
with Trevor Engram and Nick
Martin adding 2 and 1.
Garrett and Abbott controlled
the boards in rebounds. Paul
and Charles controlled the
offensive play and set-ups.
They won their second
season game 56-6 over
Apalach ABC Charter School.
Three players, Garrett,
Mosley and Buggs all double
figured in scoring with 14,
10, and 10. Smith and Josh
Williams added 8 and 6 more.
Their third game was against


Port St. Joe, and everything
back fired. Too many missed
shots and rushed passing led
to a big loss 48-22. We start-
ed off with about 10 lay-ups
and rebounded missed shots
that put us way off hanging
in with St. Joe's consistent
scoring. Hopefully we'll play
up to our ability when we
play them again at home.
Our fourth game was
another big win over Hosford
again 47-12. Roger Abbott
led scoring with 13 points.
Charles and Trevor added 8
each, Alexander 6, and Paul
and Brandon added 4 each.
Our Varsity is now 3-1.
Our J.V. opened their sea-
son with a win over Hosford
in 5th quarter, 15 minute
play by a score of 29-1.
Jawon Mosley led, the team
with 14 points. Will Rogers
added 9, and Roosevelt
Martin, Brett Digsby and
Devin Harrigill added 2
points each.' They beat


Apalach Charter 23-8 with
Roosevelt and Mosley scoring
7 and 6 points to lead the
team scorers. They did a
great job in full game play
against Port St. Joe with a
41-13 win.
Mosley led in scoring with
21 points. Will Rogers made
a lot of good passes and
moves and added 6 points.
Roosevelt added 4, Harrigill
3, and Jordan Sweinhart,
Brett Digsby, Saad Farooqui,
and Miah Jackson each
added 2. Jackson led in RB's
in all games, and did a great
job in board control over St.
Joe.
The\ won their fourth
game again over Hosford, 22-
2. Roosevelt led with 10
points and Mosley had 6.
Our J.V. is now 5-0.
We traveled to
Welahitchka Monday and
Grand Ridge today. Game
scores wil be in next weeks

Lady Tigers end exciting



season at state tourney


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor

The Blountstown Lady
Tigers ended one of their
most exciting seasons ever
last Thursday at the state
finals in Lakeland. -
The Tigers were defeated
in three games by last year's
state champs, Evangelical
Christian, 25-13, 25-10, 25-
10. In the end, King's
Academy claimed the title.
Going to state was quite
an experience for the Lady
Tigers. "It's just a whole dif-
ferent kind of setting and the
girls had to adapt to that,"
says Coach Durham. 'The


third game, they started play-
ing Blountstown Tiger volley-
ball, but it was too late.",
Lauren Wood had 10 good
serves, five digs, seven sets,
and two kills. Laura Kastli
had five good serves, seven
digs, and three kills. Holly
Jeppson had three serves,
four digs, two blocks, and
three kills. Dianna Glaze had
nine serves, five digs, two
blocks, and one kill. Chelsea
Faircloth had three serves
and six digs. Molly Fagen had
three serves, four digs. one
block, six sets, and tour kills.
Ashley Whitfield had two
kills.
"I think we had a \'er good


Turkey hunting has


not been -cancelled


season," Coach Durham
remarks. "When you have the
kind of girls I had to coach, it
makes it so much easier.
Their dedication, hard work,
and willingness to do what it
takes is what got us to state.
Hopefully, future teams will
use that as an example to fol-
low."


An official-looking notice
announcing cancellation of
Florida's 2006 turkey hunt-
ing seasons is a hoax.
According to the bogus
notice, delivered to the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) via fax, several cases
of avian influenza in
Northwest Florida wild
turkeys prompted closure of
this year's turkey hunting
seasons, and possibly subse-
quent years' through 2009,
as well. It says the action is
necessary to prevent the dis-
ease from spreading through
other wild bird populations.
The FWC and other agen-
cies across the continent are
monitoring bird populations
for signs of the disease. To
date, they have discovered no
cases of the highly dangerous
form of the disease. As part
of the FWC's avian influenza
surveillance, scientists inves-
tigate reports of bird deaths
and ask that anyone, who
finds dead birds note the
details online at
MyFWC.com/bird or contact
the local FWC office. Further
information about avian
influenza is available at
MyFWC.com/bird /avianin-
fluenza.htm.
Florida's fall turkey hunt-


ing season is Nov. 23-26 and
Dec. 9 Jan. 14 in the
Northwest Hunting Zone. and
Nov. 11 Jan. 7 in the
Central and South zones.
Spring turkey hunting sea-
son is March 17 April 22 in
the Northwest and Central
zones, and March 3.- April 8
in the South Zone. Hunters
also may take turkeys during
archery, crossbow' and muz-
zleloading gun seasons
before the fall season begins.
Holmes County has no fall
harvest of turkeys, and the
spring harvest there is limit-
ed to March 17-19 to enable
the county's depleted turkey
'population to rebuild.

eis advance with50-6 Win ovei Bakie


Face rematch with Chipley in second round


The Blountstown Tigers
advanced to the Region 1
Class 2B Championship
game with a convincing 50-6
win over Baker Friday night
at Bowles Field. The Tigers
will face Chipley in a rematch
after Chipley defeated Bratt
Northview 20-14 to earn a
spot in the championship
game.
"Chipley threw the ball 42
times against Northview and
played well. We'll need pres-
sure on their quarterback


and we'll have to play good
pass defense," coach -Greg
Jordan said Monday.
"Chipley was missing their
starting runningback against
Northview so they lined up in
the shotgun and threw it."
In the earlier meeting with
Chipley, Blountstown used a
good mix of running the ball
and passing and a tough
defense to win easily, 38-9.
"We've got to stop turning
the ball over, especially like
we did Friday night against


Baker inside their 10 yard
line," Jordan pointed out.
The winner of the
Blountstown vs. Chipley
game will face the winner of
the Jacksonville Trinity
Christian (11-0) vs. Ocala
Trinity Catholic (11-0) game.
Trinity Christian defeated
Newberry and Ocala defeated
North Florida Christian 47-
10. A Blountstown victory
over Chipley would bring the
third round of the playoffs to
Bowles Field next Friday
night.
Blountstown got on the
scoreboard first against
Baker when Cory Cox passed
to Jonathan Lockhart for 7
yards. Jared King's PAT was
good. After a good drive on
the Tigers' next series, a fum-
ble at the Baker 1 yard line
ended the threat. Baker was
forced to punt and their
punter: fumbled the snap in
the endzone and was sacked
for a safety by Christian
Smith. The Tigers led 9-0.
The Tigers fumbled on
their next series near mid-
field and Baker scored 6
plays later on a 15 yard pass
play. A bad snap resulted in
no PAT and the score was 9-
6.
On the ensuing kickoff,
Lockhart dazzled the crowd
by racing 77 yards on the


lid

.


return for a touchdown.
King's PAT gave the Tigers a
16-6 lead.
After holding Baker, the
Tigers scored in five plays
with Cox passing to Matt
Vincent for the final 20 yards.
The PAT was missed, but the
Tigers led 22-6. A Jared Lilly
interception ended Baker's
final drive of the first half.
On the second play of the
second half, Timothy
Copeland broke free and
dashed 44 yards for a touch-
down. King's PAT was good.
After stopping Baker, the
Tigers would- score in four
plays with Copeland racing


59 yards for his second TD.
The PAT failed. Copeland
would get his third score on
the next Tiger possession on
34 yard dash. King's kick
was true.
Late in the game, Jared
Lilly scored from 8 yards out.
The PAT snap was fumbled,
but Lilly passed to Vincent
for two points and the Tigers
led 50-6.
Copeland led the Tigers
with 157 yards on 10 carries
and 3 touchdowns. Eric
O'Bryan had 4 carries for 45
yards, Ryan Baker rushed for
36 yards on 3 carries and
Malcolm Ivory had 27 yards


on 4 carries.
Cory Cox completed 9 of
13 passes for 130 yards and
and 2 touchdowns. The
Tigers finished the night with
411 yards of offense.
The Tiger defense held
Baker to 97 yards of offense
on 43 plays. Baker led the
defensive charge with 13
tackles including 1.5 sacks
and 2.5 tackles for losses.
Jeremy Watson had 12 tack-,
les followed by Garry Reed
with 11 and Chase Cox and
Jared Lilly with 9 each.
David Mayo and Christian
Smith had 8 each.
Kickoff Friday at 7:30!!!


Coach Greg Jordan
High School, playoffs at:
Bowles 'Field in November.
doesn't get any better! It was a
great atmosphere this past week
as the Tigers throttled the Baker
Gators 50-6. The Tigers will
move on this week to the region-
al; finals in a rematch with the
Tigers from, Chipley. The
Chipley Tigers went on the road,
to Bratt Northview and 'won 20-
12. That means we will play at
HOME again in the 2nd round
matchup. Back tc the Baker
game for a minute, it had been
September 29, at Leon the last
time our starters were on the
field in the 4th quarter We
decided coming in our starters
were going to have to play
longer to get "playoff ready" for 4
quarters of football. The Tigers
had 281 rushing yards lead by
Timothy Copeland's 10 carries
for 157 yards. Passing we were
9/13 for 130 yards for, 157 yards.
Four different receivers hauled
in passes for OB Cory Cox.
Defensively the Tigers again
olayed well holding Baker to 62.
rushing yards on 35 carries for
1.8 per carry. Passing Baker
Was, 3-8 for 35 yards. Total
yards Baker had 97 yards ohn43
plays. The Tigers had 411 total
yards on 41 plays.
SThis week our task will be to
get our players focused on a
Chipley team that we defeated


38-9 three Week' ago. Chipley
is a very dangerous football
team. They attempte' 42 pass-
ing plays at Northview ast week.
They have some daieqerous
receivers and an excellerni pock-
et passing QB. We must get
pressure on him and not let him
set his feet to make throws.
Since we last played Chipley
they are 3-0 with, wins over
Vernon 31-0, Graceville 28-2
and Northview 20-14. They are
playing much better defensively
since they, played us. We
exposed some weaknesses in-
their. 3-4 scheme in our last
.meeting and they have since
made some adjustments to their
defense and are playing much
better now. It's difficult'to beat a
good football -team twice in the
same season. Our players must
focus on the task at hand and
iot look ahead and focus on
Chipley, this week's opponent.,
They will have motivation trying
-to avenge an earlier loss, we
must find motivation somewhere
else; We must come out and, be
more physical again this week.
That has been a common theme.
throughout the year, we have out-
hit our opponents. We must do
that again this week and dictate
the tempo of the game. This
should be an exciting playoff
game. Football in November at
Bowles FieldfH Don't miss it!!
Hope to see ya at the game.

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 that helped
administer the incredible
demands of running this
powerful country. It is the
reason presidents and citi-
zens alike refer to the partner
of the president as First
Lady.
From Martha Washington
to Laura Bush, these first
ladies have served as
remarkable role models for
little girls and young \w omen
throughout our history. As a
centerpiece, the musical fea-
tures John and Abigail
Adams and their famous cor-
respondence while John
served as America's 2nd
president. In DEAR ABBY,
we make a musical salute to
these First Ladies. With tra-
ditional 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 who were equal
partners along the way. With
DEAR ABBY, we hope to
reverse this trend and finally
give credit where credit it
due!
DEAR ABBY will be pre-
sented 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.
There is NO admission
charge. Please come

Letters cont'd-


-ments to take in these needy
animals. If you presently are
unable to provide a suitable
situation to foster animals,
but you are interested in fos-
tering animals in the future,
please call us anyway.
Should funds become avail-
able for kennels, dog houses,
etc., it will be helpful to have
an established list of volun-
teers to foster animals.
Our spaying and neuter-
ing program. Spaying and
neutering is a major priority
for our Society. The U.S.
Humane Society reports that
one unspayed female cat and
her offspring are capable of
producing 420,000 cats over
seven years! Of course in
reality that number would
never happen because
unwanted cats die from dis-
ease, starvation, and expo-
sure. Many unwanted kittens
(and puppies) are killed in
inhumane ways. So an
aggressive program to spay
and neuter pets can go along
way towards limiting animal
suffering. While we hope to
offer subsidized animal spay-
ing and neutering in. the
future, 'at the present time
we can only offer to transport
animals to the most afford-
able spaying and neutering
services. Spaying and neu-
tering costs are included in
the Society adoption fee. We
will also offer to transport
animals for other citizens*
willing to pay to spay or
neuter their own pets,
accepting appointments, and
transporting animals every
Thursday.
Our plans to lobby for
greater local government
involvement in animal con-
trol and protection. Maybe
because there is no other
place to take animals in need
of rescue or .animal control,
the Calhoun County Sheriffs
Department does not provide
animal control and protec-
tion services. The lack of
county-wide animal control,
arid protection is largely
responsible for many cases of
animal cruelty. Frustrated
citizens take the law into
their own hands, .often
employing inhumane means
such as anti-freeze poison-
ing. Animal control and pro-
tection issues have repeated-
ly been brought before. the
( -ouniyv Coimmission tix no-
avail. Ho\\e\'er a new County,
Commissioner will be sworn
in soon, and it is our
Society's plan to raise the
issue, again, ,hopefully with
better results..
We welcome the support
and assistance of any and all
willing to help in our cause.

volunteers to foster pets, to
transport animals for spay-
ing and neutering, to partici-
pate in fund raising events,
and to construct enclosures
with fencing materials for our
foster care program. There
are many other ways to vol-
unteer, too.
Of course we also need
funding for kennels, dog
houses and other pet care
needs for animals in the care
of foster families- and for
spaying and neutering assis-
tance. We welcome donations
including chain link and
other fencing materials and
supplies, cat and dog food,
and vaccinations and other
pet care products. We will be
grateful for any and all con-
tributions, whether in the
form of material needs 3or
time and energy. )q-
Another way to support
our Society is through tlite
on-line shopping we will soon
be offering through our web-
site. Linking with affiliates
and sponsors through our
web-site generates funding
for the Society (with no addi-
tional cost to the shopper.)
On-line shopping offers other'
benefits as well: merchandise
delivered to your door, (in
most cases without shipping
costs), and access to the
largest selection of products.
Some affiliate companies
include PetMeds, KB Toys,
Barnes & Noble, Avon, Wal-
Mart, Target, Sharper Image
and many more.
I will close with something
I heard once. When one looks
around and sees so much
suffering, one might ask
God, "Why don't you do
something to end all this?"
God's reply? "I have. I creat-
ed you."
"If you have men who will
exclude any of God's crea-
tures from the shelter of com-
passion and pity, you will
have men who will deal like-
wise with their fellow men."
St. Francis of Assisi
