BPD finds


temporary


new home
The old Calhoun County Public
Library on North Pear Street has
become home, sweet home, tem-
porarily for the Blountstown Police
Department. While plans are being
put together to construct a new
BPD station, officers and staff have
abandoned their old dilapidated
digs at the corner of SR 20 & 71 and
are enjoying the much needed
space the old library provides. Chief
Glenn Kimbrel (pictured at left) says
architect Paul Donofro, Jr. will pres-
ent a proposed design and blue-
print for the new facility at the next
Council meeting set for Tuesday,
April 10. Chief Kimbrel extends his
appreciation to the Calhoun
County Commission for free use of
the old library.

CITY ISSUES


Council



names


top man



for job

BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Blountstown City Council
members have named their
top candidate to fill the city
manager post.
John W. Thiemann of
Hampton, Florida, was
offered the job. Thursday.
Sources say he advised the
Council he would be in town
Tuesday to further discuss
the position and check out
the community. Details of
that meeting including
whether he had accepted
their offer were unavailable
at press time. The salary
range is between $55,000 to
$60,000. -
According to his resume,
Thiemann holds an MBA in
Finance from Xavier
University in Ohio, as well as
a Bachelor's degree in
Accounting/Management.
Thiemann is currently
self-employed as a consult-
ant for the City of Starke. He
has previously served that
same city as their finance
director. In previous years,
he has worked as a state
contract specialist, as well as
in private enterprise as a
controller with General
Electric Company, HK
Systems, and Commercial
Federal Bank.
"I have a sound back-
ground in municipal govern-
ments," Thiemann wrote in
his letter to the Council. "My
experience includes annual
budget analysis and submis-
sion for the entire city, code
enforcement, land develop-
ment issues, utility analysis
and human resource analy-
sis, as well as presentations
to city commissioners. These
experiences have given me
the breadth, maturity, and
the ability to handle' many
diverse issues which con-
front a city official. As a
hands on manager, I believe
hard work, dedication, and
the competitive spirit to get
the job done are qualities
that will enhance any team."
The search for a new
Blountstown city manager
began after the first Council
meeting of the new year
when the Council failed to
reappoint Jimmy Hand, who
had held the position for a
decade. They are also seek-
ing a finance director and
assistant city manager.

Dear Editor,
I just wanted to thank
everyone for their participa-
tion during the Blountstown
Main Street Movie night on
the Square and the down-
town cleanup. Both were very
successful, as usual!
Friday night went off
great. We had a large group of
movie watchers and everyone
had a wonderful time. I want
to thank Howard Johnson,
Jr., Mary Sue Neves, Doris
Traylor, Adrienne Wood, Kelli
Peacock, Steve Warren and
his wife, Lisa, Tony
Shoemake, Ann Clark,
Sharon Leonard-McCrone,
Dresa Leonard, and my hus-
band, Phillip Hill, Jr.
And for sure we want to
recognize Blountstown Police
Chief Glenn Kimbrel and
Officer David Creamer for
their security. Chief Kimbrel
always comes out to our
night events downtown and
stays until they are finished.
I really appreciate his sup-
port. Fire Chief Ben Hall and
Chief Kimbrel, thanks for the
BPD sign. Thanks to Sheriff
David Tatum and Joe Wood
for the tent set up, cooler and
ice. They are always so eager
to help us out.
Thanks to Coca Cola and
to Marti Vickery for meeting
the Coke wagon for set up
and delivering the flyers to
the schools.
A special thanks to Brad
Clark and Tony Money for
their DJ services for the
street dance afterwards.
Also, I want to thank
Sharon Leonard-McCrone for
her class at BHS putting the
Powerpoint presentation
together.
Kelli Peacock, Robert and
Sharon Turner, I really want
to thank you guys for all of
the great photos and news
coverage of all of our events.
Our efforts would not be as
highlighted without you. The
County Record really focuses
on positive things going on in
the community.
As you see, it takes the
efforts of many to pull these
events off. These dedicated
doers are always there to
fulfill their duties and they go
above and beyond. the call of
duty.
Our next movie will be
Star Wars! Maybe even a cos-


tume contest for young and
old! We will be setting up the
committee soon. Chief
Kimbrel offered to grill ham-
burgers. We are thinking
around Memorial Day. Also
taking lead with Kelli and
myself will be Ben Hall. I look
forward to working with this
great group of friends again.
Also, Saturday the down-
town cleanup went great!!
Thank you, River Town
Church! You guys were a life
saver. Words cannot express
how appreciative we are to
you. We pressure washed,
weeded flower beds, planted
flowers and cleaned our mess
up from the movie. Danny
Ryals, Tony Shoemake, and
Phillip Hill helped RCC with
the Pressure washing. There
was Vicki Montford and
Doris Traylor, with the help
of RCC, getting in the dirt,
digging and planting. I would
also like to thank McMillan
Nursery and Mr McMillan for
his pressure washer. David
House, we thank you for
drawing up our release for
the pressure washing at no
charge- to Main Street.
Also, I want to thank
Linda Blair for bringing out
the Bristol Youth Academy.
Those boys worked for hours
weeding the flower beds in
Magnolia Square, around the
depot and just general trash
pick up. BYA always comes
to the rescue when we call!
In last week's paper, you
got to see some of these vol-
unteers getting in the dirt
and getting wet !!! But that's
what it's all about, getting
together, having fun and
showing pride in our commu-
nity. Everything went smooth
arid we will plan another
cleanup soon!!! Thanks, Kelli,
for coming out and helping,
and thanks for your gracious
news coverage!!! We could not
do it without you!!!
In closing. I want to invite
anyone interested in joining
Main Street to please come to
our meetings. We are grow-
ing!!! Be a part, invest in your
community, invest your time.
You may. call me direct at
447-0336 if you are interest-
ed in the efforts of Main
Street.
Sincerely,
Angie Hill
Main Street President

The Triumphal Entry
Matthew 21:9
Apparently the triumphal
procession began near the
top of the Mount of Olives.
The disciples placed their
clothes on the donkey as a
saddle for Jesus to sit on. A
great multitude gathered,
spreading garments in the
way, and. in V.9 they
acclaimed Him as their
Messiah.,
When Jesus entered
Jerusalem, all the city was
moved (V.10) and everyone
asked, "Who is this?" The
answer coming back, 'This is
Jesus, the prophet of
Nazareth of Galilee." (V.11)
Disciples must always pre-
pare the way for Jesus in all
generations. He cannot go
through the world on a tri-
umphant march unless we go
with Him and before Him.
How much of a triumphal
march would it have been if
the disciples didn't go before
Him, putting down their gar-
ments and palm branches,
crying out, "Hosanna to the
son of David, blessed is He
that comes in the name of the

Lord."
He might have entered
Jerusalem that day unno-
ticed, for it was the time of
the passover and many peo-
ple were there, all getting
ready for that great day. But
what got everyone's attention
was his disciples singing,
shouting, and putting things
before Him. It stirred the
whole city.
Human influences may
open the way along which the
Spirit of Christ gets into
human hearts and into the
world. Sowing .the seed,
singing and shouting to a lost
world, here is the Messiah,
here is the Son of God who
saves people from their sins
and cleanses them from all
sin. God uses us to open the
way to someone's soul.
John the Baptist prepared
the way for Jesus' earthly
ministry, even though it cost
him his life. We, too, have
our job of preparing the way
for Jesus to work in this hour
in the hearts of men, that He
can have a triumphal entry
moving the hearts of our gen-
eration.


"Countdown to Son Rise"
is being celebrated at the
Marianna First United
Methodist Church during
Holy Week. The congregation
is inviting the community to

Resurrection by joining them

Holy Week. will begin on
Palm Sunday, April 1, with
children entering the morn-
ing services waving palm
branches and shouting
"Hosanna." The reverend
Fred Zeigler's message that
morning is "We Have A King!"
As the week unfolds, spe-
cial events will take place
every weekday. Monday
through Friday the commu-
nity is encouraged to join in a
"20/20 Countdown" at noon.
Twenty minutes will be devot-
ed to worship in the
Sanctuary on Clinton Street
with five pastors from
Marianna churches deliver-
ing the message. Those

Abandoned kittens rescued


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A man who stopped for
lunch at McDonald's Friday
received a little more than a
meal. When he returned to
his pickup, he discovered two
newborn kittens had been
placed in the back.
Whoever abandoned the
kittens obviously cared for
them to some degree. They
were nestled in a Mason Jar
box with two tiny bottles of
milk. The man with whom
they'd been left headed for
the Blountstown Police
Department and turned them
over to Sgt. Fred Tanner who


serves as Animal Control
Officer. Rather than take the
little ones to the animal shel-
ter, he brought them to his
own house for some extra
attention until permanent
homes can be found.
Fred's wife, Sandee, and
their children, Alex, 13, and
Peggy, 11, immediately fell in
love with the kittens. What
they didn't expect was how
one of their own cats would
react to the newborns.
Tabbikins, their tabby cat,
is expecting her own litter.
However, she's decided the
abandoned kittens were
meant for her. "She treats
.them like they're her own


BIRTHDYS.


babies, even though she's
still pregnant," says Peggy.
When the kittens first
arrived at.the Tanner house-
hold, Sandee put them on the
bed and attempted to feed
them with the bottles that
had been left with them in
the box. "[Tabbikins] hopped
up on the bed, grabbed them
by the neck, took them to the
closet, and started nursing
them," she reports.


The kittens both males -
are just starting to open their
eyes. Sandee guesses they
are about a week and a half
old. They've nicknamed the
solid black one Begeara and
the gray and black one is
Minnikins.
Anyone interested in pro-
viding a forever home for the
kittens can. contact Sgt.
Tanner at 643-6110 or the
BPD at 674-5987.

Wildcats' singles score seventh win


Altha to host Malone


BY JIM McINTOSH
ALTHA, MARCH 22--The
Altha Wildcats (7-4) sprayed
the Cotton Patch with 10 sin-
gles last Thursday night on
their way to a 7-5 win over
the Liberty County Bulldogs
(6-7).
In the fourth inning and
with two outs, they strung
together four back-to-back
singles on their way to a
three run frame.
Cale Chafin (2-1), who
picked up his second com-
plete game win, fanned six of
the 35 batters he faced,
walked four, while surrender-
ing 11 hits and four earned
runs. He was backed up by a
great defense that committed
only one error on the night.
It looked like the Wildcats
might fall behind early when
Chafin surrendered a single
and two two-out walks to
load the bases. But the
Wildcats' pitcher induced a
forceout to third baseman,
* Keith Kirkpatrick, to end the
scoring threat.
The Wildcats would break
into the scoring column first
with two runs in the first
inning. Chafin reached first
base on an error by the third
baseman and when the play
ended he was standing on
third, courtesy of the first
baseman's error. Next, an
infield single put Keith
Kirkpatrick on first. With two
outs Josh McIntosh poked a
two-strike single into right
field, scoring Chafin and
Kirkpatrick.
Liberty County bounced
back in the fourth inning
with three runs to make it a
3-2 ballgame. A great defen-
vi. nle r l b the Wildcats nre-


three runs having already
scored, Liberty County's bat-
ter singled to centerfield. The
Wildcat's centerfielder Gary
Chew threw a laser to catch-
er Noah Byler. Byler threw to
his brother, Ethan, at first
base and picked off the run-
ner who had just singled.
The Bulldogs' lead was
short-lived as the Wildcats
responded with three runs of
their own in their half of the
fourth inning to take a 5-3
lead. Ethan Byler led off
with a single through the
right side and he stole second
base. With two outs Cale
Chafin helped his own cause
by singling to centerfield and
scoring Byler. Chafin stole
second and made it to third
on a wild pitch. Keith
Kirkpatrick brought Chafin
home with a single to center-
field. Kirkpatrick stole sec-
ond base arid scored on Tony
Golden's single through the
right side.
Liberty County threatened
to take the lead in the fifth
inning but another Wildcat
defensive gem kept that from
happening. With one out the
Bulldogs had runners at first
and second. The next batter
singled to right field and the
Wildcats' right fielder, Josh
Warner, threw a frozen rope
to Kirkpatrick at third base
who tagged out the Bulldogs'
lead runner. Chafin would
end the inning with his fifth
strikeout of the game.
In their fifth inning frame
the Wildcats would chalk up
their final two runs. Noah
Byler was issued a leadoff
walk and he stole second
base. With one out Tad Scott
laced a single to left field,
mnrovingl Trlr tn third and he


hitter, Jake Edenfield, ripped
a single back up the middle
that scored both Byler and
Scott.
Liberty County would add
two runs in the bottom of the
seventh inning but after 2:03
minutes the Wildcats'
defense stiffened to end the
contest and bring their
record to 7-4 on the year.
A full slate of games are
scheduled for the Altha. This
past Monday the varsity
Wildcats were on the road
against the Graceville Tigers
and yesterday (Tuesday) they
hosted Blountstown (see next
week's issue for game
details). Tomorrow

Port St. Joe to take on the
Sharks at 6:00 p.m.' (CT).

for 1:00 p.m. (CT). Monday

the Cotton Patch for a 6:00

Kyle Busch
Born: May 2, 1985
Sponsor: Kellogg's
Crew Chief: Alan Gustafson
Car: 6hevrolet
Biography:
Kyle Busch joined Hendrick Motorsports on Feb.
4, 2003 and found success on the track almost
immediately. He won his first Automobile Club of
America race at Nashville Speedway from the
pole position, and followed up with a second win
at Kentucky Speedway in the very next outing.
That same year he entered seven NASCAR
Busch Series, earning a runner-up finish at
Lowe's Motor Speedway in his first start. In late
2004, Kyle Busch was selected by Hendrick
Motorsports to replace racing veteran and two-
time Winston Cup championship winner Terry
Labonte in the famed No. 5 Kellogg's Chevrolet
for 2005 and beyond. In 2005, Busch had already
clinched the 2005 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Rookie
of the Year title before the end of the season. He
won his first Cup race at the Sony HD 500 at
California Speedway in Fontana, California in
September 2005. Last year, Busch qualified for
the Chase for the Nextel Cup, but struggled to
compete and finished the season in 10th place.


NASCAR team owner Ray Evernham continues to --
court a partner for his race teams. George Gillett, "
who owns the Montreal Canadiens and the Liverpool \
soccer club, attended the race in Las Vegas as
Evernham's guest. The two are discussing Gillett
purchasing a percentage of Evernham Motorsports,
which fields cars for Kasey Kahne, Elliott Sadler and Scott Riggs. Evernham
said, "It's a matter of getting the right partner and getting the right timing. It's
not about the money."

In the first Car of Tomorrow race, Kyle Busch won on
Sunday afteroon at Bristol Motor Speedway. Kyle drag
raced Jeff Burton to the finish line. The win was Busch's
fourth career Nextel Cup victory but his first on a short
track. Itgave Hendrick Motorsports its third straightwinwith
Jimmie Johnson winning the past two Cup events. Jeff
Gordon, the polesitter, finished third and took over the
points standing as Mark Martin dropped to seventh. Initially,
the race belonged to Tony Stewart, who had created a
huge lead but his Chevrolet lost its power causing him to
return to the track 23 laps down. Juan Pablo Montoya
struggled at his first short track finishing 32nd.

BY GARY COX
Calhoun Co. Schools, Special
Programs

We are blessed in Calhoun
County that a child seldom
needs to be reported as miss-
ing. However, in America
one child is reported missing
every 40 seconds. In Florida,
more than 2,000 were report-
ed missing during February
2007. Rather than waiting
for tragedy to strike, we can
now be proactive in having
information ready for agen-
cies that will help locate a
child if the need ever arises.
The National Child
Identification Program is a
community service .initiative,
sponsored locally by the
Calhoun County School
System and dedicated to
improving these statistics by
providing parents and
guardians with a tool they
can use to help protect their
children. The I.D. Kit allows
parents to collect specific


information by easily record-
ing the physical characteris-
tics and fingerprints of their
children on identification
cards that are then kept at
home in an envelope by the
parent or guardian. If ever
needed, your I.D. Kit will give
authorities vital information
to assist their efforts in locat-
ing your child. You may
expect each of your 'children
to bring their kit home to you
by March 28.
Calhoun County Schools
System places great empha-
sis in making our schools a
secure learning environment
for our students. I know
that, as parents, you are also
committed to making your
home and community a
secure environment for your
child. The National Child
Identification Program is
another tool we can use to
ensure that we are providing
safeguards for ,our children.
When this program began,
less than two percent of par-


ents had a copy of their
child's fingerprints to use in
case of an emergency. I hope
you will all join in' this
endeavor to make our com-
munity safer by taking the
time to complete the attached
kit and storing it in a secure
location.

National Child Identification
Program, visit the website at

Calhoun County students participate in...



GCEC Youth Tour Program


WEWAHITCHKA Gulf
Coast Electric Cooperative
recently sponsored a trip to
Tallahassee for local high
school juniors. The trip was
part of the Rural Electric
Youth Tour Program that
rural electric cooperatives
across the nation participate
in.
Each year, the Cooperative
sponsors the program for
eleventh-graders whose par-
ents or guardians are mem-
bers of GCEC. A panel of
three judges from the electric
cooperative industry inter-
views participants, and two
winners are chosen to travel
on an all-expenses-paid trip
to Washington, D. C. in June,
where they join other
eleventh-grade students from
all over the United States to
tour our nation's capital.
Taylor Shelton and
Samantha Spivey won the
Youth Tour competition, held
in February, and will repre-
sent the Cooperative during
the Washington tour in June.
However, every student
nominated by a local civic
organization or high school to
participate in the program is
invited to travel on an all-
expenses-paid trip to
Tallahassee, where they join
approximately 100 other high
school juniors representing
electric cooperatives all over
Florida.
Students representing the
Cooperative in Tallahassee
included: Beth Blackmon,
nominated by the Overstreet
Volunteer Fire Department;
Brittney Henneberger, nomi-
nated by the Greenhead
Volunteer Fire Department;
Meleah Lister, nominated by
Wewahitchka Search and
Rescue; Geoffrey Manor,
nominated by the
Wewahitchka Ambulance
Service; Shelton, nominated
by Altha- High School; Spivey,
nominated by the Kinard
Volunteer Fire Department;
Luke Vickers, nominated by
the Southport Volunteer Fire
Department; Brent Walker,
nominated by Wewahitchka
High School; Kelly Weeks,
nominated by the Wetappo
Creek Volunteer Fire
Department; Chelsey
Williams, norfinated by A.
Crawford Mosley High
School; and Gayla

get down to business,



Williamson, nominated by
the Wewahitchka Woman's
Club. Additionally, Hali
Harden, Shana Pridgeon and
Samantha Wade traveled
with the students to
Tallahassee. All three are
children of Gulf Coast
Electric Cooperative employ-
ees and are therefore ineligi-
ble to compete in the contest.
Instead, they competed in a
statewide essay contest for
children and grandchildren
of cooperative employees and
board members for a chance
to go on the trip to
Washington, D. C. Gulf
Coast Electric employees
Kristin Bennett, Becky Kent,
Tony Morrell and Keith
Pridgeon served as chaper-
ones for the trip.
While in Tallahassee, the
students visited the Florida
Natural History museum and
participated in a mock
Senate session in the Senate
chambers, led by Tracy
Cantella. They also visited
the Challenger Learning


Center, where they watched
the Imax movie Roving Mars
and observed an electricity
and Van de Graff demonstra-
tion in the planetarium. The
trip concluded with the stu-
dents participating in mock
oral arguments in the
Supreme Court.
Also, it was announced in
the Senate chambers during
the Tallahassee trip that
Wade won the statewide
essay contest and will also be
traveling to Washington, D.
C.
"'The Youth Tour program
is a great opportunity for us
to reward local students for
being outstanding leaders in
their communities," Bennett
said.
The Rural Electric Youth
Tour Program has been in
existence since 1957 when
co-ops sent students to
Washington; D. C. to work
during the summer. By
1964, the program was
catching on, and the National
Rural Electric Cooperative


Association began to coordi-
nate the efforts of the co-ops.
Since then, thousands of
young people have experi-
enced this once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity to visit our
nation's capital and learn
about our government.
Gulf Coast Electric
Cooperative is part of the
Touchstone Energy@ national
alliance of local, consumer-
owned electric cooperatives
providing high standards of
service to customers large
and small.
GCEC serves approxi-
mately 20,500 consumers in
Bay, Calhoun, Gulf, Jackson,
Walton and Washington
counties and in the munici-
palities of Wewahitchka,
Ebro, White City, Lynn
Haven, Fountain and
Southport.

Drug bust-
he clocked Smith driving 45
mph in a 35 mph zone. After
pulling Smith's vehicle over,
Dep. Dalton began approach-
ing and noticed a passenger
roll a window down, then
observed a puff of smoke
come from out of the cab.
Dep. Dalton noted a strong
odor of burnt marijuana.
When the driver appeared
nervous, Dep. Dalton asked
and received permission to
search him. He discovered no
illegal contraband, but noted
Smith had $645 in small bills
on him. When Dep. Dalton
asked if any drugs were in
the vehicle, Smith initially
denied it, but after further
questioning, admitted there
was a joint under the driver's
seat and one of his passen-
gers had a beer under his
seat. He reportedly added
they were smoking a mari-
juana blunt when Dep.
Dalton stopped them.
A search of the vehicle
turned up a lock box that
contained one bag of an esti-
mated 250 grams of marijua-
na, five bags with approxi-
mately 30 grams of marijua-
na each, five bags with five
grams of marijuana pack-
aged in each of them, a snuff
can with an estimated 10
grams of burnt marijuana
blunts, and a set of scales.
Smith reportedly claimed
ownership of the lock box,
then later advised Cheng and
McElreath had no knowledge
of the contents.
Cheng allegedly stated his
bags were in the trunk. An
estimated 10 grams of mari-
juana were discovered in one
of those bags. A quart of Bud
Light beer that was three-

As part of an ongoing preparing food fl
effort to help Floridians stay V Carefully wash fruits Scholarship e stablished mn
healthy, Florida Department and vegetables, and cook


of Health (DOH) Secretary
Ana Viamonte Ros, M.D.,
M.P.H. reminds all Floridians
to take the necessary precau-
tions to avoid preventable ill-
nesses. One such illness is
norovirus, commonly called
the "stomach flu." Norovirus
is one of 'several hundred
causes -of food poisoning and
can easily be transmitted
person to person.
Norovirus is highly conta-
gious and may cause vomit-
ing and diarrhea. Most peo-
ple begin to feel better within
one or two days and have no
long term health effects.
Floridians can decrease their
chance of coming in contact
with noroviruses by following
these preventive steps:
SV Wash hands frequently,
especially after going to the
bathroom, changing diapers,
before eating and prior to


foods thoroughly before eat-
ing them
V Thoroughly clean and
disinfect contaminated sur-
faces immediately after an
episode of illness by using a
bleach-based household
cleaner
V Immediately wash cloth-
ing or linens that may be
contaminated with the virus
after an episode of illness
(use hot water and soap)
V Flush any vomit and/or
stool in the toilet and make
sure that the surrounding
area is kept clean
Persons infected with
norovirus should not prepare
food while they have symp-
toms and for three days after
they recover from their ill-
ness. Food that may have
been contaminated by an ill
person should be thrown
away.
