VIOLENCE ON THE JOB


Man pulls

shotgun on

co-worker
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A local man with an
apparent grudge against a
co-worker was taken into
custody Dec. 4 after alleged-
ly pulling a gun on him.
David Gordon Shepard
was charged with aggravated
assault with a deadly
weapon.
According to the Calhoun
County Sheriffs Office,
James E. Daniels, 31, who
works for a logging compa-
ny, contacted authorities on
Sept. 6. He advised he was
traveling on a two trail log-
ging road enroute to Iola
Road when Shepard
approached from the oppo-
site direction in another log
truck. When the two vehicles
met, Shepard allegedly
stepped out of his truck and
approached Daniels with a
shotgun in hand. Shepard
then reportedly put the gun
to Daniels' abdomen and
stated, "Your time is up." He
then made a remark about
Daniels "being wrong" and
laid. down the gun. Daniels,
who said he had rio idea why
Shepard was angry, called
his boss and authorities.
A warrant was issued for
Shepard's arrest.

"CB Bandit" sought for creating




counterfeit bills to trade for drugs


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A man authorities dubbed the "CB
Bandit" after 'he allegedly stole CB
radios from vehicles in three counties
is now being sought for allegedly
manufacturing counterfeit bills.
A warrant has been issued for the
arrest of Daniel "Frosty" Brost.
According to the Blountstown Police
Department, Ofc. David Creamer
became aware of a number of coun-
terfeit bills circulating at local busi-
nesses. The investigation led him to a
citizen who discovered a bogus $100
bill along the roadway. Another
anonymous tip led to six counterfeit
$100 bills that a witness had
obtained from a man known as
"Frosty". Ofc. Creamer said the bills
were very similar to actual cash and it
was difficult to detect they were coun-
terfeit.
Several witnesses advised "Frosty"
had been trading the fake bills for
crack cocaine at the rate of $1000
worth of counterfeit money for around


$40 in crack. Brost also allegedly sold
$1000 in fake bills for $200 cash.
Ofc.. Creamer went to a local resi-
dence where Brost had been living
until his recent eviction. A woman in
the home reported Brost had used her
computer and printer late at night
and allowed Ofc. Creamer to inspect
it. He discovered a photo paper tem-
plate the exact size of U.S. currency.
Another witness advised Brost had
been burning something out back
before he moved. Ofc. Creamer found
a small pile with burnt counterfeit
bills that were of poor quality.
Further inspection of the scanner
Brost had used with the computer
revealed a smudge that perfectly
matched the one on the center of the
counterfeit bills.
While authorities locate Brost, they
want to educate area businesses and
citizens about identifying counterfeit
bills. The BPD and U.S. Secret Service
are planning to host a seminar. The
date has not yet been set, but anyone
interested is urged to call the BPD at
674-5987.

completion and readiness at
the 55th annual Southern

(SREB) Legislative Work
Conference, held in Miami on
November 16th-18th, 2006.

opportunity for policymakers

positive changes for our

tors from 16 states a two-day
forum to learn of trends in
education policy. SREB staff
and experts on education
policy offered their support
as lawmakers prepare legis-
lation to improve education
in their respective states.
"In order to continue
improving educational oppor-
tunities for Florida's stu-
dents, we need to remain
focused on a comprehensive
approach," said
Representative Coley. "Higher
graduation rates and greater
college enrollment are impor-
tant, but we also need to pro-
vide better career and techni-

cal training for those stu-
.dents not planning on
attending college."

Theft of checks
leads to forgery
charges for woman

A Clarksville woman was
behind bars last week for
allegedly stealing a man's
checks and cashing them.
Leeanne A. Bass has been
charged with two counts of
forgery, uttering a forged
instrument, theft under
$300, and driving while her
license was suspended.
According to the Calhoun
County Sheriffs Office, Lt.
Ken Futch responded to
Superior Bank in Altha Nov.

cash a check from a client's
personal account. The teller
noted the account was over-
drawn which was not normal


Wakulla Bank) has
launched a holiday donation
drive to collect entertainment
gift certificates, family-friend-
ly movies and games, warm
clothing and hygiene items
for Big Bend area youth expe-
riencing homelessness.
Wakulla Bank is an
American Bankers
Association "Bank of
Promise" in partnership with
America's Promise, ? national
organization dedicated to
improving the lives of chil-
dren and youth. The
America's Promise campaign
symbol is a red wagon; the
donation drive features red
wagons as drop-off points in
the'bank's 15 branches in
Calhoun, Leon, Liberty and
Wakulla counties.
"Banking and community

President Walter C. Dodson


for the customer. She then
discovered a check had been
cashed earlier in the day at
Superior Bank's Blountstown
branch for $90 from an old
starter set the customer
received when the account
was opened three years prior.
The check Bass was attempt-
ing to cash was out of
sequence and in the amount
of $125. The teller obtained
Bass' identification and con-
tacted authorities.
The client advised he ,had
offered no one consent to
cash his checks. He said he
had only encountered Bass
once when she came to his
house the day before the
bank contacted him to visit a
friend who was there paint-
ing. The man said Bass and
the painter left before lunch
and never returned.

Deputies Chris Porter and
Eddie Dalton were observing
traffic on SR 20 just after 8
p.m. when they spotted a
westbound van with a shat-
tered windshield. Upon fol-
lowing the vehicle, they
noticed the tag was expired
and both tail lights were
busted. As a traffic stop was
initiated, Dep. Dalton
observed the passenger
reaching in between the front

Both deputies approached
the vehicle and found Patel
behind the wheel. During an

After spending a week at the Settlement


Tampa reporter notes Calhoun


County is at "fork in the road"


BY MIKE DeWITT
The Tampa Tribune
Mike DeWitt, a reporter
with The Tampa Tribune,
recently made a stop in
Calhoun County as he hikes
the Florida Trail...all 1100
miles from Northwest Florida
to the Everglades. During his
visit to Blountstown, he spent
several nights in the Welles
Cabin at the Panhandle
Pioneer Settlement. The story
of his visit and other trail
adventures can be found on
his blog at www.tbo.com. In
fact, it's the most popular spot
on the site these days with
around 12 million hits! Here's
an entry he graciously
allowed us to share.
It's a Good Day, Hikers!
Miy paik is packed arid my
food and water supplies are
replenished. The Trail has
been forced to wait too long'
and I am glad to be on it. .
But before I vanish into
the signal-poor woods, I am
compelled to share with you
something about the commu-
nity of Blountstown and the
indelible impression it has
left upon me.
Blountstown lies against
the west bank of the
Apalachicola River about an
hour's drive west of
Tallahassee. It is the seat of
government of Calhoun
County. Like many small
panhandle towns, it is a com-
munity that has come to a
fork in the road. If my words
ring familiar, it may be
because you once heard
words like these twenty or


thirty years ago from a
Hillsborough or Pasco
County native who knew well
the land before the bulldoz-
ers came to call.
The residents in Calhoun
County number less than
half that of my home town of
Temple Terrace, Florida, a
small city on the outskirts of
Tampa. Calhoun County is
unapologetically rural.- But
for Blountstown and few
smaller hamlets, it is largely
undeveloped. This is a curse
in the sense that well-paying
jobs are' scarce, and a bless-
ing in that its rivers and
landscapes are almost as
pristine as they were on the
first week of creation. J
But more and more
Americans ard moving south
to stay, arid it ig a- certainty
that Calhoun County will not
escape the notice of develop-
ers who are all too happy to
accommodate them. It is no
longer a question of if,, but of
when and; more important-
ly, of how.
During my week-long stay
in Blountstown, I .was privi-
leged to meet with many of
the county's civic and gov-
ernment leaders. All of them
expressed a vision of a coun-,
ty with a thriving eco-tourism
trade that will bring good
jobs and well-heeled visitors
to a picturesque Main Street
with rustic, red brick warmth
emblematic of Blountstown's
river town past.
Already in place is the
Blountstown Greenway,
recently blazed as a spur of
the Florida Trail. Its smooth


asphalt surface connects the
Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement to Main Street
and the Apalachicola River.
It is the centerpiece of
Blountstown's blueprint for
the sort of town that everyone
wants to live in. And that
brings Calhoun County to
the fork in the road.
Our Sunshine State is lit-
tered with counties that
failed to anticipateI the
impact that, a "come one,
come all" approach to devel-
opment would have on their
infrastructure, their land-
scape and their quality of life.
If I have learned anything
from walking this trail,, it is
that Florida in its most natu-
ral and historic state is its
most enchanting attraction.
The panhandle counties are
one of the few areas left in
Florida where such beauty is
virtually everywhere one
looks. It is an increasingly
rare coin, a diamond in the
form that Mother Nature her-
self sculpted.
As the leaders of Calhoun
County stand at that fork in
the road, I hope they choose
carefully their path. The
easy road leads to paved
fields, bulldozed woods, over-
crowded schools and roads
forever clogged with carloads
of people wishing they were
someplace else. I know this
because my home is on that
road.
For all of our sake, I pray
they choose the road less
traveled.
100% All-Natural Cheers
from the Florida Trail, Mike
