CRIME



Shiver charged



in wife's murder
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Former Calhoun County
Commission candidate
Julian "Jack" Shiver has
been charged with murder
after his estranged wife
passed away early Saturday.
Jackson County authori-
ties allege Shiver, 44, of
Altha, went to the home of
Paul Barber, Jr., 52, in
Cottondale, the night of April
14. Felisia Shiver, 45, of
Altha, who had reportedly
been separated from Jack
since early this year, was
inside the residence with
Barber. When they failed to
let Shiver in the home, he
allegedly kicked in the door,
confronted Felisia, and shot JULIAN "JACK" SHIVER
her in the head with a hand-
gun. Barber had armed him-
self with a shotgun and reportedly exchanged gunfire with
Jack. Barber was not hit, but Shiver was shot twice in the
torso.
The Shivers were both taken to Flowers Hospital in Dothan
where Jack underwent surgery and Felisia was placed in
intensive care. "She was on life support all week," Maj. John
Dennis of the Jackson County Sheriffs Office tells The
County Record. "She had responded a little early on, but it
didn't last long. She was in bad shape. She succumbed to
injuries early Saturday morning."
Warrants had been obtained Friday for Shiver, charging
him with two counts of attempted murder and one count of
armed burglary. After Felisia's death, one of the attempted
murder charges was changed to an open count of murder.
"After daylight Saturday morning, Mr. Shiver was released
from the hospital and taken into custody by Alabama author-
ities," Maj. Dennis reports. "He. signed a waiver and was
transferred to the Jackson County Jail where he remains. No
bond has been set. This case will be presented to a grand jury
at a later date to seek a first degree murder indictment."
Shiver made an unsuccessful bid for the district 2 seat on
the Calhoun County Commission last year. He was employed
as a lieutenant with Liberty Correctional Institution. Felisia
Shiver was a secretary specialist on the day shift at Calhoun
Correctional Institution. Barber is a captain at Calhoun
Correctional on the evening shift.
The ,Florida Dept. of Law Enforcement Mobile Crime Lab
and State Attorney's Office are assisting Jackson County
authorities with the investigation.

SCHOOLS


Two BHS students



removed for threats
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Two Blountstown High School students were removed
from campus last week - one for making a threat and the
other for an inappropriate comment.
According to BHS Principal Keith Summers, a fellow stu-
dent reported a boy for allegedly making a threatening
-remark last Wednesday. "One mentioned he was going to
blow up the school or something along those lines," Summers
reports.
In the second incident the same day, another boy is
accused of making a disturbing comment in class regarding
the massacre at Virginia
Tech. "He made a statement
that he wished the faculty
would have been the only
ones killed," says Summers.
"They've been dealt with," . PIZZA SUBS
Summers notes, explaining
that the boys - one a sopho-
more and the other a junior - M a
will be placed in an alterna- MIX & Match

remainder of the school year * Choose Any 2
and possibly a portion of next Favorite Medium

An Enemy In Need
Proverbs 25:21
In these days of astounding
overnight world changes it is
sometimes difficult to determine
who our real enemies are. For
over 50 years, our chief enemy
was considered to be the commu-
nistic Soviet empire. Today, after
the sudden collapse of that
empire, the people of Russia are
in tremendous need of help from
their former enemies.
The United States has been a
leader in recognizing the need of
the Russian people and in doing
what we can to help. A conference
of 47 nations met in Washington to
plan ways to help. Private groups,
both religious and civic, through--
out our country worked to supply
these needs. The United States
government planned to airlift mil-
lions of tons of food and medical
supplies left over from Desert
Storm to help in this project. This
was a life saver.
What a perfect example of ful-
filling the command of both the old
and the new testament. The peo-
ple of God also rejoice that the.
way is now open to take the true
Bread of Life and the Living Water
to those who hunger and thirst
after righteousness.
Remember, you do not have to
be rich to be generous.
-Corinne Wells

The County Record, APRIL 25, 2007, Page 6


John Alday, Michael Mills win state championship




Wildcats place second in state


Cats end season with



best ever 16-7 record


BY JIM McINTOSH
The Altha Wildcats' base-
ball team etched their names
in the school record books
when their regular season
ended last Thursday night.
They finished the season with
the most wins and the best
regular season record since
they first fielded a team in
1963-16 wins and 7 losses.
They picked up 'wins 15
and: 16 in a doubleheader
last Tuesday against Aucilla
Christian Academy but fell to
visiting 3A Holmes County
last Thursday.
AUCILLA, APRIL 17-The
Wildcats' pitching staff and
defense limited the Aucilla
Christian Academy Warriors
to just one hit in each game
of the twin bill last Tuesday,
while Altha's offense
scratched out four runs to
sweep the Warriors for the
second straight season.
(Game 1) - On a day when
he wasn't on top of his game,
Altha's Tad Scott (5-3; 0.45
ERA), got help from the
defense to record the
Wildcats' (15-6) seventh
shutout of the season, 1-0.
Scott walked a season
high six batters but struck
out 10 Warriors to put him in
third place in the Big Bend
with 76 strikeouts.
Altha had four base run-
ners in the first three innings
but could not get them across
the plate as all of them were
thrown out trying to steal.
The Warriors (10-11)
threatened to break the game
open in the first and second
innings. With two outs they
had the bases loaded in the
first inning but sixth batter
in the inning was caught
looking at strike three. In the


second inning the Warriors
again loaded the bases with
only one out but a Warriors'
base running error enabled
the Wildcats to turn a double
play and escape the inning.
Scott induced a pop up from
Aucilla's number two batter
that Altha's first baseman,
Ethan Byler, wrapped leather
around and stepped on the
bag to complete the twin
killing. '
The Wildcats -&-ored thegr
run in the fourth inning.
Josh McIntosh turned on the
first pitch and ripped it down
the third base line for his
fourth double of the season.
With one out Tad Scott shot
his fifth double of the season
down the third blase line to
score McIntosh.
Aucilla had two runners
aboard in the fourth inning
by way of two walks sand-
wiched in between two strike-
outs. The Wildcats' catcher,
Noah Byler, and would snuff
out the Warriors' threat 'by
gunning down a would-be
base stealer at third base.
The Wildcats' shortstop,
Keith Kirkpatrick, secured
win number 15 when he
snared a two-out, line drive
ending the 1:23 minute
affair.
(Game 2) - Helping to
relieve the stress on their
fans, the Wildcats (16-6)
decided to go ahead and put
two runs on the board in the
first inning.
Leadoff batter Gary Chew
reached on a throwing error
by the third baseman. Josh
McIntosh laid down a bunt
on the first base side for an
infield single, moving Chew
to second base. Tad Scott
banged a one-out, two-RBI
double to left field scoring


both Chew and McIntosh.
See ALTHA BASEBALL, pg. 14

BY COACH ROBBIE SMITH
Altha finished state run-
ner up Friday in boys'
weightlifting at the finals in
Daytona Beach.
The team defeated 66
'schools on their way to the

Arnold, who won their second
straight state title, ahead of
them.
The Wildcats also had two
individual state champions
with seniors John Alday and
Michael Mills both capturing
gold.
Alday won the 129 pound
weight class, making him a
two-time state champion. He
lifted a total of 485 pounds.
Michael Mills realized a
dream, winning the 183
pound weight class with a


630 pound total.
Also medalling were junior
Gary Chew, who finished 5th
place in the 129 pound class,
and sophomore Tony Golden,
who captured 6th place in
the 154 pound class. Chew's

Blountstown edges Sneads Lady Pirates, 4-3



Lady Tigers are district champs


The Lady Tigers were all smiles after clinching the district title Thursday night against Sneads.


Tigers (from left) Britt Wood, Malcolm Ivory, Josh Lee, Joseph Sapp, and'Justin Godwin had an
impressive day at the state finals Friday where they all placed. Not pictured is Ryan Baker.


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
The Blountstown Lady
Tigers edged the Sneads Lady
Pirates, 4-3, Thursday to
clinch the district title on
their home turf.
Altha took on Sneads in
the first round last Tuesday
with the Cats defeated, 7-4.
In the championship
game, the Tigers brought in
two runs in the second
inning and Sneads scored
once. The Lady Pirates tied
the game in the fifth inning,
then took the lead in the top
of the sixth. The Lady Tigers
responded with a run in the
sixth to tie it,then sealed the
win with a run by Molly
Fagen in the seventh.
"Molly led off the inning,
reaching on a fielding error,"
says Coach Bubba Johnson.
"Anna Kelley sacrifice bunted
her to second. We did a steal
attempt to third and the
shortstop was trying to cover
the bag for the third base-
man. The ball got by the
shortstop and Molly scored."
The Tigers were led at the
plate by Fagen, Brittany
Griffin, Allison Jones,
Chelsea Faircloth, Lauren
Wood, and Ellen Williams
with one hit a piece.
"We played great defense
and that was the difference in
the ballgame," Coach
Johnson points out. "We hit
the ball hard several times.
We had only one person
strikeout in the game and
only had one to walk. We cap-
italized on what few baserun-
ners we had and, of course,
we kept them off the base,
too."
Kaitlin Peacock was the
winning pitcher, giving up
four hits, striking out four,
walking three and hitting


three batters. "She was sick
all week and came back to
school Wednesday the day
before we played," Coach
Johnson remarks, adding
that Peacock was sick over
the weekend and he hopes
she recovers in time for the
regional quarterfinals set for
Tuesday at home against Port
St. Joe (details on that game


unavailable at press time).
If BHS defeats St. Joe,
they will advance to the
regional semifinals (date
TBA).
Looking through the
school trophy case, Coach
Johnson notes that it
appears 1986 was the last
time the Lady Tigers won the
district championship.


BHS third at state NEW FORD TRUCKS ARE


weightlifting meet CHEAPER AT BAY FORD BLOUNTSTOWN
BY COACH GREG JORDAN total. On his third attempt,A
(after missing 305 lbs. irihis i i l .
The Tigers took seven second attempt) we went 'for g * * gg P


state qualifiers- to the
Daytona Beach Ocean Center
for the boys state weightlift-
ing competition this past
Friday. That total tied us for
second most in the state
behind Arnold High School
which had 10 qualifiers.
Weightlifting has only two
classes - class lA goes up to
1600 students which splits
class 3A in all the other
sports. The Tigers captured
3rd place in the state out of
68 schools competing in
class 1A. We had 7 qualifiers
and 5 of those lifters medaled
at the meet. The state meet
awards the top 6 lifters in
each weight class and awards
points for each place 7-5-4-3"-
2-1.
In the 129 lb. weight class,
first time qualifier Joseph
Sapp (10th grader) placed
6th and scored 1 point with a
personal best total of 400 lbs.
In the 139 lb. weight class
Britt Wood (senior) captured
3rd place (4 points) with a
490 total and Justin Godwin
(senior) just missed a medal
with a personal best 470 lbs.
In the 183 lb. class,
Malcolm Ivory wound up with
a 6th place finish. Malcolm
was tied for 4th place with
only one clean and jerk and
lost on body weight with two
other lifters with the same


the state championship with
a 315 lb. attempt. Judges
ruled his over head jerk was
no good and disqualified the
lift, knocking Malcolm from a
possible state champ to 6th
place.
In the 199 lb. weight class
Josh Lee (senior) captured
2nd place with a 330 bench
and 325 clean ,and jerk for a
655 total. Josh had a great
day and went for the state
championship on his third
clean attempt of 355 lbs. The
lift was unsuccessful, but
Josh Lee is still a champion
regardless of weight lifted.
Britt Leach was also a 199
lb. lifter. He had a 310 bench
and disqualified on his
cleans. Britt had to go heavy
on his cleans to have a
chance to score points.
Ryan Baker captured 4th
place in the 219 lb. weight
class with a 375 bench (a
new personal best) and 315
clean and jerk for a 690 total.
All of these kids have
worked extremely hard and
I'm proud of all of them for
the way they represented
Blountstown High School at
the state meet.
Congratulations to Coach
Smith and the Altha weight
team for their finish at the

lab. On Tuesday, May 1,
eighth grade students with
the last name beginning with
M-Z and their parents will
meet in the computer lab at
6:30 p.m.
These nights have been set
aside to inform parents of
House Bill 7087, also known
as the A++ Plan for
Education, passed in the
2006 legislative session. The
new law redefines state high
school graduation require-
ments and requires students
in the 07/08 school year to
choose a major area of inter-
est. It also calls for all
incoming ninth grade stu-
dents to complete a personal-
ized academic plan, using the
ePersonal Education Planner
(ePEP). All parents will have
the opportunity to access
their child's ePEP using the
Florida Department . of
Education's statewide stu-
dent advising web site
(FACTS.org) in the computer
lab.
All eighth grade students
along with their parents are
strongly encouraged to
attend on their designated
night. Please call the school
at 762-3121and inform Mrs.
Horton, our receptionist, if
you will be attending the
meeting.

LETE TOTH DIO


Dear Editor:
This letter is to clear some
confusion about the meeting
on April 17th with the
County Commission and the
Planning Council concerning
the RV Park.
The Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement had explored the
advantages to the community
and all the events such as
Goat Day, horse events, trails
and events at the Settlement.
Since tourism is the largest
industry in the state, Visit
Florida provides statistics on
revenue that RV parks bring
in, other than space rentals,
such as groceries, gas,
restaurants and other mer-
chants.
We visited State Parks
with RV parks as well as Gulf
County, which owns� an RV
I'park. We' obtained' "several
hundred signatures in '$up-,
port as well as 20 business-
es. We had the support of the
majority of the County
Commissioners.
In making major deci-
sions, the Settlement looks at
the impact on the communi-
ty, the merchants, and the
Settlement. Do to the division
it caused in the community,
with anger and threats, we
withdrew our application to
keep unity. The Settlement is
for the community, not to
divide it.
Thanks to all that did

Jeff Gordon
Born: Aug. 4, 1971
Sponsor: DuPont
Crew Chief: Steve Letarte
Car: Chevrolet
Biography:
In 1991, Gordon started racing for the.USAC Silver
Crown and at the age of 20 became the youngest
driver to win the title. Gordon then went on to spend
two successful years in NASCAR in 1991 and 1992,
driving for Bill Davis Racing Busch Series.
Coincidentally, Gordon's first NASCAR Winston Cup
Series race, the 1992 Hooters 500 at the Atlanta
Motor Speedway, was also the final race for Richard
Petty. In 1993, Gordon raced his first full season in
the Winston Cup for Hendrick Motorsports, where he
won the. Rookie of the Year award and finished 14th,
in points. In 1994, Jeff Gordon collected his first
career victory at the Lowe's Motor Speedway in the
Coca Cola 600. In 1995, at the age of 24, Gordon
won his first NASCAR Winston Cup Championship.
Over the next 10 years, he went on to win three more
Winston Cup titles. Last y6ar, Gordon qualified for
the Chase for the Cup, but failed to win any of the
Chase races, finishing in sixth place in the standings.
This year, Gordon has raced well and with last
week's win, he vaulted himself into first place in the
Nextel Cup standings.


NASCAR officials are looking at the actions of driver Juan .I
Pablo Montoya, who allegedly used an obscene gesture on a .
live TV broadcast of last Thursday nights Busch Series prac-
tice session. Montoya, a former Formula One star in his first full
season of NASCAR competition, could face monetary and
points penalties in the Busch series if it is determined the ges-
ture was viewed on a live TV broadcast Montoya, who has been shadowed by a cam-
era crew for more than a month, apparently mistakenly thought one of the cameramen
he is friends with was behind the camera, Chip Ganassi Raring officials said.

Want to research your family tree?




Local library can help


Calhoun County Public
Library has a new resource
that uses technology to make
tracing family trees easier.
HeritageQuest OnlineTM, a
Web-based reference tool
from Pro Quest Information
and Learning, will allow you
to start exploring your roots
by searching a surname.
Even more convenient, you
don't have to leave home to
do it. Anyone with a CAL-.
HOUN COUNTY library card
can log onto HeritageQuest
Online through the library
website and begin instantly
searching the database's mil-
lions of records for clues to
their past - as far back as the
1700s.
The library is responding
to a growing interest in fami-
ly history that's captured not
only North Florida but
America as a hole. A new
nationwide survey* shows
73% of Americans want to
learn more about their roots,


up from 60% in 2000.
Twenty-five percent of those
surveyed became interested
after searching for a family
"surname online, pointing to
the increasing popularity of
Internet-based genealogy.
"More and more of our
patrons want to explore their
past and HeritageQuest
Online makes it easy and
convenient," said Ms.Rita
Maupin, Library Director.
"We expect this to be one of
our most popular services."
Ms. Maupin says before
you log -on make a list of
ancestors to research. "Write
down the names of every
direct ancestor you can think
of," she advises.
Once connected to
HeritageQuest Online, users
will find several paths to find-
ing information the U.S.
Federal Census collection,
over 20,000 family and local
history books, an index to
nearly 2 million magazine


articles with .genealogical
information, or a vast data-
base of Revolutionary War
era records. Users select a
path and enter a name to be
searched. HeritageQuest
instantly looks for matches
and returns the results.
Click on a name and an
image of the matching record
appears. For example, when
a name is searched in the
census collection, the partic-
ular page where this name is
listed will be displayed on the
screen. Patrons can use the
information that they find as
"clues" that will assist in
searching their family history
- places where they lived,
names of relatives, birth or
death dates, etc. Names can
be added to form the "tree" or
searched to find more clues.
"Genealogy is a wonderful
hobby for anyone who wants
to know more about where
they came from," says Ms.
Maupin, "and HeritageQuest


Online is simple enough for
beginners, yet it provides
deep and broad .content sets
that will help veteran geneal-
ogists advance their
research."

Altha baseball


Aicilla (10-13) would
Anake it a 2-1 ballgame by
posting a run in the bottom
of the first inning and they
would tie it in the second
inning.
The Wildcats would take
the lead back and seal the
deal, 3-2, in the fifth inning.
Chew reached after singling
through the right side of the
infield. McIntosh's sacrifice
bunt moved Chew to second
base. With one out Jake
Edenfield singled to score
Chew.
The Warriors threatened to
send- the game into extra
innings in the bottom of the
fifth inning. The first batter
reached after being hit by a
pitch but -was forced out at
second base on the next play.
The final two batters ground-
out to ,Scott at shortstop,
leaving the game-tying run
stranded at second base.
Leading the Wildcats at
the plate was Jake Edenfield
with a single and a RBI. Josh
McIntosh was 1 for 2 and he
scored a run. Gary Chew
was 1 for 3 and he cross the
plate twice. Tad Scott was 1
for 3 with 2 RBIs and a stolen
base. Also, Keith Kirkpatrick
was 1 for 3 on the afternoon.
Pitching his fourth com-
plete game, Wildcats' hurler
Cale Chafin picked up his
fourth win of the season.
Chafin (4-1; 3.80 ERA) struck
out 2 of the 21 batters he
faced while only allowing 1
hit, 1 walk, and 2 earned
runs.
ALTHA, APRIL 19-The
Wildcats (16-7) played host to
the 3A Holmes County Blue
Devils in their last regular
season game at The Cotton
Patch last Thursday night.
Although he was credited
with the loss, Altha's Keith
Kirkpatrick (5-2; 1.44 ERA)
pitched his best game of the
season. Two of Holmes
County's first four batters
boasted batting averages over
.400 on the year and one bat-
ter, Grant Gavin, has the
third best batting average
(.533) in the Big Bend. But
Kirkpatrick kept them off
balance all night, allowing
only one of them to single in
the sixth inning.
The Blue Devils (16-7)
posted their first run in the
third inning.
In the sixth inning the
wheels began to come off of
the Wildcats' defense as
Holmes County scored their
final four runs. Two Wildcat
throwing errors cost them
three runs. A double brought
around the final run of the


inning.. --
However, the Wildcats
were not going to give up
without a fight and they tried
to stage a seventh inning
comeback. With one out sev-
enth-grader, Jacob Warner
raked the first pitch he saw
through the left side of the
infield. Josh McIntosh drew
a walk, moving Warner to
second. Noah Byler singled
to centerfield to load the
bases. Tad Scott was issued
a walk, allowing Warner to
score and advancing
McIntosh and Byler to third
and second base, respective-
ly. With two outs Cale Chafin
worked the count full before
being walked to pick up his
RBI number 17 on the year
when McIntosh scored. With
the bags full of Wildcats
Ethan Byler stepped to the
plate and all the Wildcats'
fans were hoping for another
Byler Bomb. Ethan smoked
a grass-burner to the short-
stop, who bobbled the ball
momentarily, but gained con-
trol as he stepped on second
base to force out Chafin to
end the game.
Altha's pitcher, Keith
Kirkpatrick, did a good job of
keeping his team in the game
and giving them an opportu-
nity to win it. He struck out
four batters, walked one, and
allowed only two earned
runs.
Leading the Wildcats with
the sticks was Noah Byler
who was 1 for 2. Jake
Edenfield, Josh McIntosh,
and Jacob Warner were all 1
for 3 with McIntosh and
Warner scoring the Wildcats'
runs.
The second season began
for the Wildcats last night as
they tangled with the
Blountstown Tigers in the
Class 2A-District 3 tourna-
ment in Blountstown (see
next week's issue for game
details). The winner of that
semifinal game will take on
the top-seeded Sneads

night at 6:30 p.m. in
Blountstown.

U.S. Chamber honors Boyd




for supporting business issues


WASHINGTON, D.C.-
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida) received the
"Spirit of Enterprise" award
from the United States
Chamber of Commerce for
his strong support of a pro-
economic growth legislative
agenda in the second session
of the 109th Congress.
"It is such an honor to
receive this award from the
U.S. Chamber of Commerce,"
said Congressman Boyd.
"The federal government can
play a meaningful role in pro-
viding economic opportunity
for our businesses. I am
proud to work with the U.S.
Chamber and the local cham-
bers in North Florida to pro-
rhote more economic growth
in our communities."
The Chamber's "Spirit of
Enterprise" award is given
annually to members of
Congress based on rankings
it gives for key business
votes. The votes counted by
the Chamber in 2006 includ-
ed the passage of tax relief for
small businesses and legisla-


tion to enhance maritime and
cargo security at our ports.
"Our communities are
stronger because of the work
and dedication of the local
chambers and their member-
ship," stated Boyd. "I will
continue to work in Congress
to support our chambers and
the issues that. are important
for the economic develop-
ment of North Florida."
Chamber-designated "key
votes" are recorded floor
votes on issues established
as priorities by the
Chamber's board of directors
and on which the Chamber
communicates its position
prior to the vote. Members of
Congress who support the
Chamber's position on at
least 70 percent of key votes
receive the "Spirit of
Enterprise" award.

AT RIGHT: U.S. Chamber
President and CEO Tom
Donohue presents Congressman
Allen Boyd with the "Spirit of
Enterprise" Award.
