PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT




Sky offers benefit details


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
With over 600 new homesites being proposed
on the west side of Calhoun County, there are
bound to be changes if the project is approved.
The development known as "Sky" has many res-
idents questioning what a new community will
mean for our area. This week, Bruce White, one
of the Sky developers, shared some details about
the benefits Sky brings to the table.
"One of our chief goals...is to work with the
people of Calhoun County to build a successful
people-and-environmentally-friendly communi-
ty," White states. "A place that county residents
will take pride in for its energy efficiency and
beautiful design, for the many jobs and
increased tax base it will create, for the interest-
ing activities to attend, and for all of the positive
financial and educational benefits that this proj-
ect brings to Calhoun County."


Located at Hwy. 287 and Shelton Road in'
Clarksville, White says Sky will bring an esti-
mated 200 jobs to Calhoun County, making it
the third largest employer here. The Sky com-
munity will employ stable help, horse trainers,
restaurant staff, landscapers, gardeners, farm-
ers, maintenance workers, secretaries, account-
ants, as well as staff for the water and sewer sys-
tems they will have on site, along with the gym
and racquet club. In addition, there will be
opportunities in retail, real estate sales, and
rental management.
While the community is being built, the Sky
developers are committed to hiring subcontrac-
tors from the surrounding areas. They plan to
offer apprenticeships with craftsmen, builders,
and landscape designers.
One of the greatest benefits to Calhoun
County could be the tax base increase. "It is pro-

CRASH


Driver ejected after


swerving to.miss deer
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A Blountstown man was fortunate to escape a weekend
accident with only minor injuries after he was thrown
from his vehicle.
Torbin Dykes, 24, was traveling on CR 286, two miles
east of SR 69, around 4:30 a.m. Saturday when he report-
edly swerved to avoid hitting a deer. He lost control of his
2002 Nissan and it flipped end over end three times. He
was ejected. 'The last thing he remembered was feeling
like the car was about to spin," his sister, Tori Money, tells
The County Record. "He woke up face down in a ditch. He
could hear a car coming and flagged a girl down. We don't
know who she was, but I believe she called 911."

ARREST


Intoxicated man arrested

after crashing in a ditch
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A domestic disturbance in Altha Saturday night ended
in one arrest after a man fled the scene, then crashed in
a ditch.
Arrested was Thomas Edward Powell, 39, charged with
DUI and refusal to submit to a breath test.
According to the Calhoun County Sheriffs Office,
Deputies Scotty Norris, Chris Porter, and Eddie Dalton,
along with Sgt. Mark Mallory, were dispatched to a home
on Terry Varnum Road after a caller advised a loud verbal
altercation was underway. Prior to their arrival, the dis-
patcher advised Powell had left the home in a green Monte
Carlo and was extremely intoxicated. Dep. Porter spotted
the vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed, headed south-
bound on Terry Varnum Road. The car then headed south
on CR 69A, started down a hill, then crashed into a ditch
as the driver attempted to turn onto Parrish Lake Road.
In Dep. Porter's report, he states that Powell excited the
driver's side and walked toward .his patrol car in an

LaVasyette
'April 11, 2007
From ponytails, baby dplls,
and bicycles with training
wheels,
To a driver license, non stop
talking on the phone and, of
course, high heels.
Yes, my little girl is growing up
before my eyes.
And I can do nothing, this I've
'come to realize.
For I know it won't be long
before you graduate and off you
go.
But you will always be in my
heart and thoughts, this I hope
you know
But as for now I'm going to
scold and correct you over and
over again.
And once you are off to col-
lege and become Dr.
Donaldson, you can thank me
then,
I would love to keep you by
my side, but that wouldn't be just
or fair.
For if I let you have a free ride
means I don't really care.
So with the teachings from
your mother, aunties, and granny
on right and wrong.
It's now up to you to practice
those teachings and my faith in
you, Vasy, is strong.
And I know a lot of things are
in style like Ipods, bling bling, and
cell phones.
But as for you little boys out
there, DO NOT CALL MY HOME!!!
Well I guess you can call,
there is no need for me to hate.
But know that I love my little
girl and will do anything to keep
her safe.
So Happy Birthday Vasy and
remember to respect others and
they'll respect you.
And always remember that
no matter what, I will always love
you.
Love, Ken

swept by Pirates


BY JIM MclINTOSH
The Altha Wildcats began
their three-game home stand
last week as hot as the
weather with wins over
Malone and Bolivar Central,
Tennessee. But just as a
steady north wind blew
Friday night to drop the tem-
perature, so the Wildcats
dropped a second and deci-
sive district game to the
Sneads Pirates.
ALTHA, APRIL 2-A good
Malone (9-3) team came call-
ing on the Wildcats last
Monday night hoping to
,avenge a 6-0 loss to the
Wildcats earlier this season.
However, Alfha (10-5) was
up to the task and handed
the Tigers a 2-0 loss-the
Wildcats' fifth shutout of the
season.
Keith Kirkpatrick (4-0),
who is presently ranked sixth
among Big Bend pitchers
with a 0.72 ERA, pitched his
second shutout and fourth
complete game of the season.
Kirkpatrick struck out eight,
walked three, and surren-
dered only two hits to the 26
Tigers' batters he faced.
As well, the Wildcats'
defense was a major factor in
the win as they played error-
less ball behind Kirkpatrick.
Altha scored both their
runs in the fourth inning.
With one out Noah Byler
reached on a fielder's choice.
Then Tad Scott rattled the
left centerfield fence with a
two-out double. Cale Chafin
scored Byler and Scott with a
high-hopping single over the
third baseman's head.
With the two run lead
Kirkpatrick allowed only two
base runners in the final two
innings but neither advanced
past first base.
ALTHA, APRIL 4-As good
as the catfish fillet meals
were that were served
throughout the game, the
Wildcats were even better
serving their fans a 9-4 victo-
ry over the spring-breaking
Bolivar Central (TN) Tigers.
Three Altha (11-5) batters
had multiple base hits during
the game. Both Gary Chew
and Tony Golden had a triple


and Josh McIntosh was cred-
ited with a double.
- The Wildcats' defense
working in tandem with
pitcher Cale Chafin (3-1, 3.99
ERA) kept the Tigers (13-6)
off the scoreboard until the
seventh inning. Pitching his
third complete game, Chafin
fanned two batters, surren-
dered a walk, and allowed
four earned runs in the form
of a grand slam.
Altha would put up a three
run spot on the Tigers in the
second inning. With one out,
Cale Chafin reached on an
error by the second baseman.
A wild pitch advanced him to
second base. Ethan Byler
drew a walk. A passed ball
allowed Chafin to take third.
base and Byler went to sec-
ond base. Tony Golden
smoked a two-out double to
right field, scoring Chafin
and Byler. Gary -Chew fol-
lowed with a RBI single back
up the middle that brought
Golden around to score (he
third run of the inning.
In the third inning the
Wildcats continued their
scoring barrage with six
runs. Noah Byler was issued
a lead off walk. Tad Scott
reached on a fielder's choice
when Byler was forced out at.
second base. Both Keith
Kirkpatrick and Chafin
reached after being hit by a
pitch. Ethan Byler singled
back up the middle to score
Scott and Kirkpatrick.
Chafin attempted to score on
the play but was thrown out
at the plate. Jake Edenfield
singled back through the
box, moving Byler to second
base. Golden drew a walk to
load the bases. Chew
cranked a 0-1 pitch into right
field for a three-run triple.
Josh McIntosh ended the
Wildcats' scoring by reaching
on an infield single that
allowed Chew to score Altha's
ninth run of the game. ,
ALTHA, APRIL 6-The cold
north wind that blew through
our area last Friday not only
dropped the temperature but
seemed to chill the
Wildcats'(11-6; 3-2A: 2-2)
gloves as they committed five
errors in a 5-2 district loss to


the Sneads Pirates (8-10; 3-
2A: 3-0).
It also didn't help that
Altha's bats went cold, too, as
they could only muster five
hits and left 10 Wildcats on
base.

Playing on the river?



Beware of alligators


Spring is when Florida's
alligators start getting active,
and the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is urging
Floridians and visitors to be
cautious when having fun in
and around water.
Alligators abound in all 67
counties and have shared
marshes, swamps, rivers and
lakes with people for cen-
turies. But because more
individuals are seeking
waterfront property and
water-related activities
increase during the warm
months, people should be
alert when they are in areas
where alligators could be
present.
Closely supervise children
when they are playing in or
around water. State law pro-


hibits contact with alligators,
and it is against the law to
feed them.
There are other precau-

State law prohibits
contact with alliga-
tors, and it is against
the law to feed them.

tionary measures people
should take to reduce poten-
tial conflictIwith alligators,
and they are available in the
"Living with Alligators"
brochure at
MyFWC.com/gators.
The FWC annually
receives more than 18,000
alligator-related complaints.
The agency removes more


than 7,000 alligators each
year when the reptiles pres-
ent danger to people or prop-
erty.
If you encounter an alliga-
tor that poses a threat to you,
your pets or your property,
and the alligator is more than
4 feet long, call the FWC's
toll-free Nuisance Alligator
Hotline at 1-866-FWC-
GATOR (392-4286). The tele-
phone number is the primary
contact for all alligator com-
plaints and is available to
customers 24 hours a, day.
Alligators are an important
part of Florida's heritage and
play a valuable role in the
ecosystems where they live.
Visit MyFWC.com/gators for
more information on alligator
behavior.

Wildcats cont'd


The Wildcats' Keith

the 25 ,batters he faced,
walked two, and was charged
with four earned runs.
Sneads posted their first
run in the first inning.
Altha responded in the
bottom of the first with their
two runs. The Wildcats' lead-
off batter, Gary Chew, was
issued a walk. Josh

fice bunt that moved Chew to
second base. A wild pitch
allowed Chew to advance to

fly to left field scored Chew.
With two outs Tad Scott

or a bad accident, your dona-
tion will comfort them. A
stuffed animal is something
in which a child can put their
trust. It will comfort them
when they need it most.
Even the smallest stuffed
animal will help in a big way.
Please bring your dona-
tions to Mrs. McCrone at
Blountstown High School.
There is not a deadline for
donations.

Texas Motor Speedway's layout is very simi-
lar to Atlanta Motor Speedway and Lowe's
Motor Speedway (formerly Charlotte Motor
S Speedway). Based on qualifying speeds in
S 2004, 200,5, and 2006, the Texas Motor
.,, Speedway was once considered the fastest
non-restrictor plate track on the NASCAR circuit, with qualify-
ing speeds in excess of 192 mph and comer entry speeds over
200 mph. However, as the tracks' respective racing surfaces
continue to wear, qualifying speeds at Atlanta have become
consistently faster than at Texas. Texas Motor Speedway is
home to two NASCAR Nextel Cup races: the Samsung 500
and the Dickies 500, as well as two Busch Series Races.

Carl Edwards



Ca, I-..r.1
Biography:
Carl Edwards! big break came in 2002, when
he competed in 7 NASCAR Craftsman Truck
Series events for MB Motorsports. His best fin-
'ish in the seven races was 8th. However, it was
enough to impress Jack Roush, and Edwards
became a full-time Truck Series competitor in
2003, driving the #99 Ford F-150 sponsored by
Superchips. In August of 2004, he made his
Nextel Cup Series debut at the Michigan
International Speedway, replacing Jeff Burton
in the #99 Ford Taurus for Roush Racing. In
2005, Edwards became a full-time driver in
both the Nextel Cup and Busch Series. On
March 19, 2005, Edwards won the Aaron's 312
at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton,
Georgia, recording his first Busch Series win.
The next day, he beat Jimmie Johnson by 2-
hundredths of a second to win the Golden
Corral 500 at the same track for his first Nextel
Cup Series win. Last year, Edwards' missed
the Chase for the Cup. His best finish was at
Michigan Speedway where he finished 2nd.


NASCAR officials have found that because of a lack of
air flow in the door panel of the Car of Tomorrow, the '
door panel overheats and can cause the new safety
foam to melt or catch on fire. Dow Chemical Company
produces the safety foam and has said when installed
properly, there is no danger. For now, teams have been
told by NASCAR officials that they will be allowed to cut away the bottom left
corner of the foam block that comes .into contact with the tailpipe, which is the
heat source that, apparently, has caused the melting.

Carl Edwards won his second consecutive NASCAR
Busch Series race on Saturday afternoon at Nashville
Superspeedway. He led the final 25 laps and finished 4.7
seconds ahead of David Reutimann. Carl's win extended
his lead in the season standings and it was the 11th time
he won a Busch Series race. After the race Edwards said,
"I felt really confident going in, like it was our race to lose."
With temperatures in the 30s and 40s, it was a cold day for
racing. This win gives Edwards a 321-point lead over Dave
Blaney, who jumped past the idle Kevin Harvick and Kyle
Busch in the standings. The next Busch race is on
Saturday, April 14th at Texas Motor Speedway.


Where was the first NASCAR race held?

b) Charlotte Speedway d) Texas Motor Speedway

NOTICE OF CUSTOMER MEETINGS
In re:. Docket No. 060638-EI
Petition of Florida Public Utilities Company for approval of an increase to base rates through a united proceeding to recover costs associated
with mandatory storm preparedness initiatives
Pursuant to Section 366,076, Florida Statutes, Florida Public Utilities Company is seeking approval for a revision to its current
base rates in order to recover the costs associated with implementing storm preparedness programs required by the Florida Public Service
Commission in Docket No. 060198-EI. These programs were not in existence or anticipated when the base rates of the Company were last
established, and the significant, unanticipated annual costs of these programs, projected to be $713,517 in 2007, would have an adverse effect
on the financial position of the Company. The relief sought by the Company would enable implementation of the storm hardening initiatives
while also maintaining the financial status of the Company. The Company is seeking to recover these expenditures through an adjustment to
base rates. The adjustments to the non-demand energy charge component of the base rate are shown below.
The Public Service Commission has scheduled customer meetings on this Petition at the following times and places:

Your help is needed to...





Stand up for seniors


Residents of long-term care
facilities in Calhoun County
need help to mrnke certain
their rights are protected
every day. And, the volun-
teers who work to ensure
those rights are in dire need of
help to make that possible.
Three years ago, Jerome
Conger, an active 78-year-old
community volunteer, said he
was looking for a new oppor-
tunity to make a difference in
the lives of area seniors -
especially those whose voices
were not always being heard.
He says he found it by vol-
unteering with the Long-
Term Care Ombudsman
Program, administered by the
Florida Department of Elder
Affairs. A former public
health official and
Tallahassee resident since
1969, Conger volunteers
between 40 and 50 hours a
month to help ensure the
health, safety, welfare and
human and civil rights of
individuals living in long-
term, care facilities in Leon


and 13 surrounding coun-
ties.
"It is an opportunity to
interact with residents in
these facilities in a meaning-
ful way," Conger said. "For
them to see that there is an
advocate out there concerned
with them and their well-
being is very important.
When we are able to solve
problems for residents, they
are so appreciative. It is very
rewarding to be involved."
When an elder is admitted
to a long-term care facility,
federal law mandates that he
or she is given a special set of
residents' rights covering
issues ranging from dignity
and respect to measurable
quality of life and care.
Volunteer ombudsmen - who
are trained by the program
and approved by the
Department of Elder Affairs -
assess local facilities and
respond to residents' individ-
ual complaints to ensure that
their rights are being main-
tained and respected.


Sometimes, those issues
may not seem like a big deal
to someone on the outside,
but Conger says they can
make all the difference in the
world to the person involved.
"I once got a complaint
from a resident about being
treated without politeness,"
he said. "A physical therapist
was being hard to get along
with, which may seem minor,
but the therapist was one of
the few people with whom the
resident spent a lot of time on
a regular basis. We verified
the complaint, and it turned
out that no one knew about it
except a few residents and
that person. I was able to
bring them all together and it
got resolved. And she got a
new therapist."
While. taking on such
responsibility may seem
daunting to some, according
to Conger, volunteers are well
prepared to tackle such chal-
lenges.
"I tell people that this is a
complex assignment, but we


provide all the support and
training they will need," he
said. "Even if you have no
knowledge or experience in
this area, you can make a
real contribution to the lives
of these people. All it takes is
20 hours a month and caring
about your fellow man and
their well-being."
The need for more volun-
teers is critical. All program
services, including individu-
alized response to residents'
concerns, are free and confi-
dential.
A long-term care ombuds-
man program exists in each
state throughout the U.S., as
mandated by the federal
Older Americans Act. Long-
term care facility residents,
family members and Florida
residents interested in volun-
teering with a local council,
accessing the program's serv-
ices or learning more about
residents' rights may call toll-
free 1-888-831-0404 or visit
