assault

arrest
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A Thanksgiving night fight
led to one arrest on assault
charges.
Patrick G. Manning
remains in custody at the
Calhoun County Jail for bat-
tery, criminal mischief over
$200, but under $1000, and
trespassing in an occupied
structure or conveyance.
According to the Calhoun
County Sheriffs Office, just
before 8 p.m., a caller from
Mozelle's Liquor Store on
Hwy. 69 North reported
James "Hambone" Davis was
at the business covered in
blood and asked the clerk to-
call authorities. Sgt. Mark
Mallory responded and,
while en route, learned from
the CCSO dispatcher that
Davis had returned to his
home on M.G. Holley Road
where there was possibly a
female victim.
Sgt. Mallory soon arrived
at the residence and spoke
with Davis and Christina
Couch. Davis provided a
sworn statement that
Manning had come to the
home earlier in the evening
to speak with Couch. Davis
told Manning to leave the
property and he complied. A
short time later, Davis and
Couch left the residence.
Davis said when they
returned and pulled into the
yard, Manning appeared and
broke out the driver side
front window of Davis' vehi-
cle. He then allegedly
attacked Davis while he was
still in the car. Davis said he
accelerated in an attempt to
get away from Manning, but
Manning leaned into the
vehicle and continued strik-
ing Davis while grabbing for
his steering wheel. As Davis
traveled down M.G. Holley
Road toward SR 69,
Manning reportedly clung to
the car. At some point, Davis
bit Manning's arm, then lost
control of the vehicle. The
car struck a tree and came
to a stop at which point
Couch exited the vehicle to
speak with Manning. Davis
took off for the liquor store to
call for help.
Davis said Couch told him
Manning followed her back
to Davis' residence and

Dear Editor,
I would like to congratu-
late the Blountstown High
School Forestry team on their
recent national champi-
onship in Indianapolis,
Indiana in October. I would
also like to congratulate the
BHS girls Golf team for their
runner up finish in the dis-
trict meet. This was our best
finish ever in golf. The BHS
volleyball team for their first
ever trip to the final four in
Lakeland earlier this month
and the BHS football team for
completing their third
straight undefeated regular
season and advancing to the
state semi finals. These are
just a few of the good things
happening at BHS.
Since the completion of
the volleyball and football
seasons I have been asked
several questions, Why do we
have to play the private
schools?, Does the FHSAA
really care?, and What' can
we do?
We play the private
schools because their stu-
dent population is similar to
ours. For us at this'time they
are members of our 2A clas-
sification so from a total pop-
ulation. Does the FHSAA
really care? Yes, they do, it's
staff is made up of former
school superintendents,
principals, and athletic direc-
tors. In 'January 2006
Commissioner Dr. John
Stewart proposed to the
FHSAA Representative
Assembly a comprehensive
but fair bylaw governing
transferring students from
one school to another. I was a
member of this assembly and
voted for the bylaw with an
overwhelming number of
both private and public dele-
gates. Even the representa-
tive from Trinity Catholic was
in favor of this bylaw and
voted for it. Unfortunately
the legislature set it aside.
What can we do? Write
your legislator and the new
Governor Elect. Marti Coley
is our representative in the
House of Representatives and
Al Lawson is our State
Senator. Recently Charlie
Crist was elected Governor.
Tell them how you feel about
The un level plaiing s-iirface
that exists and what .you
observed first hand. Ask
them to reinstate the bylaw
which was passed by a large
majority. Also send me a let-
ter at BHS that I may carry
them to the next Board of
Directors meeting in January
to encourage Dr. Stewait to,
keep up the good fight to level
the playing field for all
Florida High School athletes.

Sincerely,
Keith Summers, Principal
Blountstown High School

Dear Editor,
I would like to commend
our football team for their
efforts this football season. I
know that alot of people did
not expect them to go this far,
but they never gave up and
got themselves back in the
playoffs, again. They played
their hearts out every Friday
night.
This past Friday night was
no exception, they were in it
every second of the clock. I
am so proud of them for play-
ing hard till the end of the
game and holding their heads
high because they knew they
had given their all Friday
night. Our "home grown"
boys did a great job against a
"hand picked" team. Give me
"home grown" any Friday
night, they play as a team
and not individuals.
Coach Jordan, you have
come in here and continued
the tradition of Tiger football.


Can't wait till next season.
To #5 and #10, you have
made your parents very
proud. We have watched you
for 12 years play football
together and it has been the
best years of our lives. You
have blessed our lives more
than you can imagine.
For the fans in
Blountstown, what can be
said, we have the best fans in
the state of Florida. There is
nothing like getting up on
Monday morning only to
remember Friday night is
coming soon. Until next year,
GO TIGERS.

Lisa Cox

Dear Editor,
I am writing this letter to
commend the job Coach Greg
Jordan and the Blountstown
Tigers did this season.
I can't believe that anyone
thought that after losing over
30 seniors the past two sea-
sons that the Tigers would go
12-1 this year. That is solely
because of the outstanding
job Coach Jordan and his
coaches did with this team.
They obviously played togeth-
er very well all year and were
well prepared for their oppo-
nents all season.
I was fortunate enough to
get to watch them play last
week against Trinity Catholic
and although it did not turn
out like everyone would have
liked, the kids never quit and
played extremely hard.
I just wanted Coach
Jordan and the 2006 Tigers
to know that I, for one, was
very proud of them this sea-
son. Three perfect seasons in
a row do not come along
every day and the people of
Blountstown and Calhoun
County should be very' proud
to call themselves a Tiger.
THank you, Blountstown,
for the years of great memo-
ries you gave me and best of
luck in the years to come.
Congratulations, Greg and
GO TIGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Built in 1938, the Sherry
Avenue residence was first
the homeplace of the Luttrell
family. Mr. Luttrell was a
bookkeeper for the Neal Land
& Timber sawmill and his
wife was the home ec teacher
at Calco High School. The
Luttrells later sold. to the
Leon Durham family and the
Stephenses took ownership
in 1977.
Over the years, Don and
Mert, along with their sons,
Lane and Scott, put their own
special touches on the home,
while preserving the original
elements. "We didn't change
the integrity of the inside of

the house," says Mert. "We
like things that are old and
used and we didn't want to
change the appearance.
There are a lot of little nooks
and crannies here if you want
to get away."
Remodeling projects have
included converting a
screened porch into a family
room, plus adding a covered
patio, carport, and pool.
Not only has their home
brought them much joy, their
neighbors also added to the
pleasures of living on Sherry

about moving here was the
way the neighbors accepted
the boys," Mert remarks.
"The older ladies on the street
just loved them!"

Dr. Richard Sprenkel, an
entomologist affiliated with
the University of Florida,
spoke at the Torreya Garden
Club's Monday, November 6,
meeting at the Calhoun
County Extension Building.
Pres. Sandra Parrish
presided.
For Devotions, Alice
Williford read a quotation
from Mark Twain, "Kindness
is a language that the deaf
can hear and the blind can
see."
Jessica Bowden intro-
duced Dr. Richard Sprenkel,
UFIFAS Extension Research.

Since his speciality is the
study of insects, Dr. Sprenkel
discussed those that might
"visit" our gardens or homes.
Some insects like the indoor
life while other prefer fresh
.air and sunshine. He told
about both!


By the way, of all the
insects in the world, only one
percent are pests the others
are beneficial. Also all
insects are not universal, but
live in 'various areas of the
world.
Dr. Sprenkel's talk,
accompanied by slides, was
very informative. We appreci-
ate his sharing his knowledge
with us .
Pres. Parrish presented
him with a beautiful peace
lil as a "Thank You!"
Fran Mayo reported on the
.District 2 Garden Club meet-
ing which she and Doris
Traylor attended October
12th in Grace\ille.

for replanting the courthouse
flower bed, planting "knock-
out" roses and agathanthus.
The Club received some


bad news, Jessica Bowden
resigned her membership in
Torreya Garden Club due to
the extreme pressure of work
and her recent surgery. We
wish you the best, Jessica,
and appreciate all you've
done for us. Come and visit
our meetings whenever you
can. We'll miss you!

The tasty, refreshments
were served from the buffet
.table which" sported a fall
motif. Hosts were Jonathan
Alford and Aileen McQuagge.
The next meeting will be
the Club's Christmas party at
the home of President Sandra
Parrish, on December 4th.,
Each member is asked to
bring a covered dish for the

Annual Hospice 'Tree of Lights.



A Celebration of Life' Thursday


MARIANNA, FL The com-
munity is invited to attend
Covenant Hospice's annual
"Tree of Lights A
Celebration of Life" ceremony
at 6 p.m., Thursday, Nov.
30th at the Russ House,
4318 Lafayette Street,
Marianna, FL.
This evening of celebration
includes holiday music and
an inspirational message of
hope by guest speaker Homer
Hirt. A reception with
refreshments will follow.
There is no charge to attend.
"Participating in the Tree
of Lights is a meaningful way
to make a gift in memory or


in honor of a special loved
one, said Barbara Bentley,
volunteer manager for
Covenant Hospice. "Loved
ones will be personally recog-
nized during the ceremony.
We invite the community to
celebrate the holidays with
us while we remember family
and friends."
Special commemorative
ornaments personalized with
a loved one's name will be
available to hang on the tree
or to keep.
All donations benefit
Covenant Hospice, enabling
them to continue their mis-
sion of providing compas-


sionate, quality care for
patients and loved ones fac-
ing end-of-life issues.


Guilt Feelings
Hebrew 10:2
Neal Hightower told this
story, "When I was a boy vis-
iting my grandfather's farm
for the summer, one of the
favorite pastimes was telling
stories. I recall sitting on the
porch after supper one
evening and hearing the
grown-ups spinning yarns'
about snakes swallowing
calves. Toward sundown, my
grandfather handed me a
horse bridle and told me to go
catch Jim, the horse, and
bring him to the house.
Throwing the long, black bri-
dle over my shoulder, I went
off on the errand, full of the
vigor of a nine-year-old, but
also with a mind full of the
stories I had been hearing.
"Striding along and
whistling to keep my fears of
the approaching darkness at
bay, I suddenly- heard a
rustling noise behind me.


For more information, call
Covenant Hospice at 482-
8520.


Looking out of the corner of
my eye, I noted a 'black thing'
following me. With activated
imagination, I immediately
concluded that a black snake
was about to eat me up. Off I
ran like a deer. However, it
seemed that as I ran faster,
the snake picked up speed
also. Finally, exhausted and
unable to run another step, I1
fell to the ground, convinced
that my days were over.
That's when I discovered that
the 'black thing' following me
was the bridle I had been
dragging over my shoulder!"
Sin is totally like that. It
will stalk our conscience and
fills us with the dread of
guilt. Neither elaborate ritual
nor psychological analysis is
able to dissolve the burden of
convicting guilt. Only Christ's
grace of forgiveness can free
us from that dread, which
pursues us without any
mercy.


Want to have more mean-
ing in your life? Do you want
to do something that is satis-
fying and of great service to
your community? Then
become a Hospice of the
Emerald Coast volunteer!!!
Volunteers are needed in
your area to help families of
the terminally ill. Becoming a
hospice volunteer is similar
to helping a neighbor in need.
The only qualification
required is your desire to
help someone in need. You
'don't need any medical skills;
you don't even need a college
degree; you don't even need
to know what to say. All you
need to do is sign up for our
hospice volunteer training
which will be held in your
local area.



We deeply appreciate the
flowers, food, cards, letters,
phone calls and other contri-
butions form friends and rel-
atives during the loss of our
"Mrs Lucy". We are most
grateful to Dr. Clifford
Bristol, the staff at
Parthenon Healthcare of
Blountstown, and Covenant
Hospice for their assistance
and kindness during our
time of sadness. A special
thanks to Rev. Phillip
Williams of Poplar Head
Baptist Church for his con-
cerns and kindness.
To each and everyone, we
thank you from the bottom of
our heart.

Teeny Mite Tigers fall to St. Joe in champi


The Calhoun County
Teeny Mites ended their reg-
ular season with a 6-0
record! This sent them to the
playoffs facing
Chattahoochee on November
4th for a chance to play in
the Superbowl. They pulled
it off with a win of 20-0.
Their next mission was
Port St. Joe on November


Slth playing on their field.
The Tigers held the'. lead at
half-time by 6 points, but by
the 3rd Quarter, Port St. Joe
had scored a touchdown and
got a two point conversion.
The Tigers fought hard to get
the next touchdown and were
inches and seconds away,
but ran out of time.
These kids poured their


heart and soul into this sea-
son and we are so proud of
them.
The parents of our team
would like to thank Coaches
Lee Brown, Rick Johnson,
and Chris O'Bryan for their
dedication, hard work, and
many, many hours spent
practicing and developing
this phenomenal team.

Public vs. private-


BHS Principal Keith
Summers was appointed last
year to serve on the legisla-
tive body of the Florida High
School Athletic Association
(FHSAA) and says the issue
has been a heated one among
members. "The FHSAA is not
the problem," Summers
remarks. "FHSAA
Connis-.ioiier John Stewxart
oga e t.: the representative
assembly in January of 2006
a very comprehensive new
rule on students transferring
from one school to another
after their ninth grade year.
Part of that was, they'd have
to play on the junior \ar-sity
level for one year. There are
like 10 exceptions to the rule
that still respected school
choice that are matters that
are important to the legisla--
ture. The.public schools over-7
whelmingly voted for it. The
private schools also voted in
favor of it and that included a
representative from Trinity
Catholic who voted for it.
Now, there's a small' vocal
minority and I feel it's com-
ing from the private school
and home school sector that
feels it is unfair and they
went to the state legislature.
The legislature set up a task
force and they met three or
four times. It was made up of
people for and against it.
They met in the
Tampa/Clearwater area, but
people from North Florida
attended the meetings.
Basically what happened, the
task force has asked the
FHSAA to rescind that bylaw
- even though a large majori-
ty supported it. The bylaw
has now been set aside."
Following Friday night's
scene and others over the
years in nearly every sport -
Summers is ready to take an
aggressive stance to get the
rules changed and level the

Superintendent Mary' Sue
Neves is also fed up and is
taking action. She contacted
Bill Montford. a Calhoun
County native who serves as
CEO of the Florida
Association of District School
Superintendents, about the
matter. At her request. he is
organizing 'a meeting of, the
school superintendents
around the state to strategrze
about solving this problem.
"He said he received a lot
of phone calls from the gener-
al public in Calhoun County
after the ballgame," Neves
tells The County Record.
What bothers Neves most
is the message students are,
'receiving when they are
forced to play unevenly
matched games. "We tell kids
if they work hard and keep
up academics, they've got a
great chance of winning
state. And that's not even
realistic anymore. We've got
to change this. There's no
way we can compete with
these private funded

Tigers' geal season en


The County Record, NOVEMBER 29, 2006, Page 7







with 50-710ss


The Blountstown Tigers
reached the State Class 2B
Semi Finals for the third
straight year after posting
their third straight 10-0 reg-
ular season. The third round
opponent was Ocala Trinity
Catholic for the second
straight year and the out-
come was the same. Ocala
TC totally dominated the
game with speed and talent
the Tigers couldn't match,
scoring at will and advancing
to the championship game in
Miami against Pahokee with
a 50-7 victory.
"Our kids played as good
as they could have. We only
had one turnover, but it was
picked up and run in for a
touchdown. They ran the
first kickoff return for a
touchdown against us all
season. We were just over
matched." coach Greg Jordan
said Monday.
"Unfortunately, that was
just as far as we could go in
the playoffs. I think this
team achieved more than
most people had expected.
They fought hard Friday
night. They kept their com-
posure and didn't quit and
I'm really proud of them,"
Jordan stated.
For teams like the Tigers
who play so well against their
competition in the Panhandle
it has to be disheartening to
know that when you reach
the third round you can be so
-outclassed by private schools
with such a tremendous
advantage over public
schools. It is not an even
playing field and until the
Florida High School Athletic
Association gets their heads
out of the sand, public
schools reaching the third
, round should just store their

For ;the Tigers Friday
night, there were few shining


moments. With Blountstown
already trailing 14-0 in the
first quarter, senior Chase
Cox intercepted a Celtic pass
and returned it40 yards to
Ocala 30. The Tigers man-
aged 5 yards on 4 plays and
Ocala took over.
It was 30-0 at halftime,
but the Tigers came out in
the second half and put
together a scoring drive
capped off with a 41 yard
scoring pass from junior Cory
Cox to Junior, Jonathan
Lockhart. Soph. Jared King
added the PAT. The ensuing
kickoff was returned by
Ocala for 85 yards and a
touchdown.
Lockhart came up with an
interception in the third
quarter, but the Tiger offense
simply couldn't move.
The Tigers had 26 running
plays in the game for -29
yards with Cox being sacked
4 times and runningbacks
brought down in the back-
field several times. Cox com-
pleted 7 of 18 passes for 68
yards, one interception and
one touchdown.
Blountstown had 39 net
yards for the game. Senior:
Timothy Copeland had 16
yards rushing on 13
attempts.
Ocala ran the ball 23
times for 118 yards and com-
pleted 10 of 19 for 194 yards.'
Junior Ryan Baker led the
defense with 8 tackles and 1
sack. Juniors Christian
Smith and Lockhart finished
with 5 and 4 tackles respec-
tively. Seniors Garry Reed
and Chase Cox had 4 and 3
tackles respectively.
Seniors Brandon Williams,
Josh Lee, Eric O'Bryan, Brad~
Terry, Bradley Johnson and
Josh Underwood will all be
missed next season having
made such a huge contribu-
tion to the Tiger football pro-
gram.

values you learned on the foot-
ball field and apply it for the rest

low. Speaking of success, this
group of seniors compiled a
three year resume that will be
hard to beat. Three undefeated
regular seasons, 3 district cham-
pionship. 3 regional champi-
onships, one state runner up
and a 38-3 total record. You as
a group with the help of those
before you and those that will
follow, have laid the foundation
of success for years to come. To
all of our underclassmen play-
ers, there are no substitutes for
hard work and dedication.
Those are the things that have
gotten us to where we are now,
and where we want to stay. We.
have alot of good football play-
ers returning for the 2007 sea-
son. We will start preparing for

ability of our testing program,"
said Commissioner Winn.
'This new interactive version
will give the public a way to
review the test questions and
answers in an engaging and
informative manner."
Test questions are written
according to specific guide-
lines developed by Florida
educators. Questions are
reviewed and revised by
teachers, curriculum experts
and school and district
administrators to ensure
they are appropriate for the
grade level tested. Each year,
more than 500 classroom
teachers, special education
teachers, English language
learning instructors, admin-
istrators, curriculum special-
ists, policy leaders, college
and university experts,
school board members and
parents take part in the
FCAT question review
process.
"While these tests can
serve as excellent resources
to teachers, parents and stu-
dents, it is important to
remember that these tests
should never be used to drill
students in preparation for
next year's FCAT because
these specific questions will
ifot be used again," added
Commissioner Winn.
Funding permitting, the
Department of Education will
again release more reading
and mathematics tests next
fall, along with the grade 8
science test.

is scheduled to depart the
River Junction Depot in
Veterans' Memorial Park in
Bristol on Friday and

half mile through the back of
the park. This unique little
train will carry its passengers
on a beautiful tour of lights
and live scenes. There will be
over 40,000 lights, though
the Avenue of Lights,
Enchanted Forest, and
Tunnels of Lights. The pas-
' sengers will enjoy watching
the elves in Santa's Work

Nativity Scene. For addition-

District Trainers, Steve and
Peggy McCool, also held an
OWL (Outdoor Leader Skills
for Webelos Leaders) class
which was attended by ten
adults.
Scouts joined together and
hiked the nature trails and
cleaned up trash and in the
evening, enjoyed a night hike
to get a different view of the
local wildlife.
Opening the Saturday
evening campfire program,
Scoutmaster Steve McCool
added a small bag of ashes
from Scouting campfires
from twenty countries, dating
back to 1933. Groups then
shared skits and songs


around the roaring fire.
Webelos dens were pre-
sented with cooking awards
for preparing their own sup-
pers. Some of the categories
included: Strangest Mixture,
Most Nutritious Easiest To
Prepare and Best
Presentation.
During the closing cere-
mony on Sunday morning,
each den was presented with
two participation ribbons to
place on their den and pack
flags and everyone was given
a small bag containing
mementoes from the event.
One important item was a
bag holding some of the pre-
vious night's camp fire ashes
which had been collected and
a paper explaining each
campfire and country where
the ashes have been shared.

Bridge named for Charlie Parker


Dedication ceremony Tuesday


Construction was recently
completed on the bridge
spanning the Mexico Beach
Canal. The new bridge fea-
tures modern bridge building
technology and additional
lanes to accommodate future
traffic increases.
The bridge will be named
the 'Charles M. Parker' bridge
in honor of the first mayor of
Mexico Beach, and a man
who had the vision to see
what this seaside community
could be in the future.
'Charlie,' as he was known to
everyone he ever met, worked
to make his vision a reality
and has been missed since
he passed away in 2003. The
bridge will be a memorial to a
man who gave so unselfishly
of himself to his community.


TALLAHASSEE Tom
Gallagher, Florida's chief
financial officer, has
announced that the
Department of Financial
Services has uncovered
another scam seeking to lure
Floridians into buying poten-
tially. inappropriate financial
products. As a result,
Gallagher is again warning
consumers to "Verify Before
You Buy."
Earlier this rrionth,
Gallagher ordered Ohio-
based Investors Union, LLC
and its managing member,
Peter J. Bonnell III of Medina,
Ohio, to immediately stop
sending, misleading post-
cards to Florida seniors bear-
ing the word "NOTICE" and
advising consumers that they
"may have an annuity ..that
has reached the end of its
surrender period." When-
recipients" call a toll-free
number listed on the post-
card, they are not given any
information regarding their
own investment accounts,
but are instead asked for per-
sonal financial information
and advised they should set'
an appointment to review
their existing annuities and
other investments.
'These deceptive practices
.against our seniors in
attempts to manipulate them
out of their hard-earned sa\-
ings will not be tolerated".
said Gallagher. who oversees
the Florida Department of-
Financial Sernices. .'I com-
mend the .investigators who
discovered these activities
early on before too nman\ sen-
iors were scanlmed."
An annuity' is a contract in
which an insurance company
makes a series of payments
that provide primary or sup-
plemental retirement income
while the armulity holder is,
alive. Most annuities have a
surrender period during
which the holder would pay
. an extra service charge for
withdrawing money beyond a
set amount.
!As CFO, Gallagher imple-,
meented a "Verify Before YouW
Buy" campaign using web-
sites. billboards, radio ads
and various new s shows and
publications urging
Floridians to protect them-
selves in financial transac-
tions. He also created a
Senior Resource Center web-
site. at ~%vww\\.flseniors.net/. to
help seniors with the diverse


Charles M. Parker


The ceremony will be held
on Tuesday, December 5th at
11:00 (cst) on the west side of


questions and financial chal-
lenges they may face.
Also, in response to calls
and letters from hundreds of
seniors robbed 'of access to
their savings because they
were convinced to liquidate
CDs, stocks and savings
accounts to.fund annuities,
Gallagher pushed for legisla-
tion that passed in 2004
requiring agents to document
the basis for selling annuities
to seniors and also gave the
department authority to take
corrective action if a compa-
ny or agent violates the law.
Gallagher is again urging
Floridians and especially
seniors to take the following
precautions to avoid becom-
ing a victim of a financial
scam:
V Do an- assessment of
your financial means and
investment objectives.
V 'Understand that all
investments involve risk:
generally, the .higher 'the
return, the higher the risk.
V Ask the sales agent (bro-
ker) about commissions, fees,
penalties. 'sales charges and
any other costs.
V Ask as many questions
as you want and take notes.
Walk away if they avoid your
questions.
V Take your time. High-
pi-essure sales tactics will

rush you. into an unwise
decision. A sound investment
will be just as good tomorrow
or next week.
V Document all transac-
tions.,
i. Carefully-; read and,
understand documents
before you sign them.
V Ignore "inside informa-
tion," "hot tips" and
"rumors."
V Hang up on "cold calls"
from strangers.
V Beware of bonus" inter-
est rates as they are usually
limited in duration and have
strings attached.
Vt, Be cautious of sales
pitches that claim you will
'recoup" all penalties with
the higher returns of a new
police' .
V Remember: if It sound's
too good to be true. it proba-
bly is.:
Anyone who believes they
may be a victim should call
the department's Consumer
Helpline at 1-500-342-2762
or log on to vwwv.fIldfs.com to
file a complaint.

The guest of honor will be
Mrs. 'Inky" Parker, Charlie's
