tions, it was to include
the Calhoun County

best educational opportu-
nity for all our students

SERVICE TO CITIZENS


DCF rep to be at local




library two days a week


Calhoun and Liberty county
clients of the Dept. of Children
and Families can now receive
help at the Blountstown Library
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
When the Florida Department of Children & Families
(DCF) pulled up stakes in Calhoun County a couple years
back, many clients were left with some serious obstacles.
Some didn't have transportation to reach other DCF offices
in Marianna or Quincy; others who weren't computer
savvy had difficulty maneuvering on the DCF'website.
Calhoun County Library Director. Rita Maupin, along
with Clerk of Court Ruth Attaway, who serves as
Chairwoman of the library's board, quickly realized local
residents needed more from.DCF in the form of client serv-
ice. When Dan Wyrick was elected to the County
Commission's district 2 seat, he got on board and joined
the effort.
"Mrs. Rita was having people come to the library trying
to get on the e-Government website," Commissioner
Wyrick explains, noting the DCF clients were directed to
the site to deal with benefit and assistance issues. '"They
would have questions or problems getting on e-
Government and the library personnel would not really be
qualified to answer their questions. So we requested the
Department of Children and Families come in and help."
Attaway says she became aware of how critical the need
was for a DCF representative to be available in person


Officials gather outside the new office for the Dept. of Children
and Families representative who will be on hand at the
Blountstown Library every Monday and Tuesday. Pictured are
(from left) Rob Forbus of DCF, Library Director Rita Mauipin, Sherry
Warden of DCF Clerk of Court/Library Board Chair Ruth Attaway,
and County Commissioner Dan Wyrick,
when she attempted to help an elderly woman complete a
form on the state website. "I call myself rather literate and
I couldn't do the thing," she remarks with a laugh. "I was
doing it for a 93 year old woman and she couldn't do it."
Commissioner Wyrick took the matter before the
Commission. "We made it a board action, Mrs. Ruth wrote
a letter to the governor and I guess he made it happen,"

Jami Daniels begins


filming for Miss Fla.
Kinard's own Jami Daniels joined Jenna Edwards, Miss Florida
USA 2007, and several other 2008 contestants when they gathered at
the Westin Diplomat Resort & Spa in Hollywood, Florida, to pre-tape
segments for the upcoming Miss Florida USA 2008 Pageant. The con-
testants were introduced to the city and had the opportunity to meet
with the local media.
Jami, 22, (pictured at left) is the reigning Miss Tallahassee USA.
She is the daughter of Doyle and Charlotte Daniels of Kinard. This is
her second straight year at Miss Florida USA. Last year, when she
competed as Miss West Coast USA, she was named one of the top 15
finalists.
This past year's winner, Miss Jenna Edwards, represented the state
in the Miss USA 2007 Pageant. Miss Edwards has garnered much
media attention for her charitable efforts. Miss Edward's charity,
"Queen for a Day", has been featured in People Magazine and The
Oprah Winfrey Show. The organization, which was founded by Miss
Edwards, gives young girls who are seriously ill a fun day of pamper-
ing.
The Miss Florida USA Pageant is a statewide tradition that focuses
on highlighting the outstanding young women of our state. This year,
more than 50 finalists from all.over Florida will converge on the city
of Hollywood and its surrounding communities the week of July 11-

ARREST


Woman


charged


in crash


death
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A Blountstown woman is
facing charges following -an
investigation into a Bay
County traffic crash that
occurred last month, leaving
one man dead.
According to a press
release from the Mexico
Beach Department of Public
Safety, Jennifer Michelle
Ammons, 21, turned herself
into the Mexico Beach Police
Department and the Bay
County Jail Friday. A war-
rant had been issued for her
arrest on DUI manslaughter
charges. She was booked
into the jail and released
after posting $25,000 bond.
Ammons' arrest stems
from a May 23 accident that
claimed the life of Eric Scott
Burton, 42, of Mexico Beach.
Burton was reportedly a pas-
senger in a car driven by
Ammons when she allegedly
crashed into a beach

mLETE OTEEIO


Letter to the Editor,
Last week, I received a
somewhat disturbing tele-
phone call to my home from
an unknown young female as
to who I was and what I was
doing and who I represented.
The tone of this call was such
that it prompted me to con-
tact both the Liberty County
Sheriffs Department as well
as the Blountstown Police
Department to insure that I
had not broken the law or
violated anyone's rights in
any way. I had not.
Please allow me to explain.
My name is Dennis Howland,
aka "Vita-Man". I am an
independent advertising affil-
iate for a nationally marketed
lien of nutritional products.
The company I represent has
been in business for over six
year, but is virtually
unknown in this area. If you
recently received a business
card, flyer, phone call or
other means of communica-
tion from me, I'd like to apol-
ogize because my experience
in marketing is quite limited.
My knowledge of nutrition,
however, is not.
Reaction to recent market-
ing and advertising has been
mixed, I now believe, because
people don't know me and it
is naturally, especially in
close-knit communities such
as ours, to have some level of
hesitancy and fear of the
unknown. It is not I, howev-
er, that should be feared, but
rather, what is happening to
our health in this country
that is scary. I have recently
had an opportunity to experi-
ence the results of a product
that has very literally,
changed my life. I believe
"What goes around comes
around", and I'd like to share
my discovery with others.
Who am I? I've bagged
groceries, worked in retail
sales, served in two branches
of. the military, been a slot
machine technician in Las
Vegas, and worked out at
Area 51 in the Nevada desert.
I've been a service technician
for IBM, had my own busi-
ness, and worked as a voca-
tional teacher of electronics
in the disciplines of telecom-'
munications, network
cabling and even fiber optics.
I m. both..a. writerr and moti-
vatforial speaker and a'grad-
uate of John Childers Million
DllifE "Speaker 'tfring in
Anaheim, California. I am
currently employed as a cor-
rectional officer at Liberty, CI
in Bristol.
My goal, simply put, is to
change peoples' lives in
Liberty, Calhoun and
Jackson counties. You'll see
and recognize me "Vita-Man",
I guarantee it. My green polo
shirt and logo, the sign on my
car and my haircut are easily
recognizable. Now you know
me. It's nice to meet you.

Dear Fellow Americans,

Teams), US Navy,

i ALL LETTERS TO "'
THE EDITOR MUSt$
d; BE SIGNED N .-
0.eadHne Monday Nool #
fg'-. ";


Department of State Foreign
Service Officers and direct
hires, USDA, contractors,
and local Iraqis. Our mission
is to help restore and build
Iraq into a functional sover-
eign nation. We have trained
local governments, con-
structed roads, schools, and
water projects, established
farm programs, helped clean
and repair irrigation systems,
and assisted with capacity
building. In our work we vrisit
villages, town's, cities,
schools, farms, and move
throughout the countryside.
We have made unbelievable
improvements in construc-
tion and capacity building.
We can see the fruits of our
labor.
The reason for writing to
you is to request your assis-
tance in this great endeavor.
We are looking for assistance
to make our efforts more suc-
cessful. The children of Iraq
used to build and fly kites
much like they do in
Afghanistan, but since the
beginning of Operation Iraqi
Freedom there have been few
kites in the air. We here at
the PRT are trying to rebuild
Iraq, the PRT and the locals
agree that seeing kites in the
air again show that Iraq is
returning to a sense of nor-
malness. We are establishing
contests and programs to
form a youth development
program and this is one of
the many programs we want
to give to the youth of Iraq to
get them involved.
The PRT is looking for
kites, kite string and reels. It
is the PRTs goal to see a kite
on every corner of the
Province and eventually Iraq..
In our travels throughout
Iraq, it's the personal rela-
tionships, the personal
touches, and the American
spirit that means the most
and helps us accomplish our
mission. Many of us receive
care packages from home
consisting of toys, clothing,
and school supplies that we
readily share with people
throughout .the countryside.
The other day, one of our
Sergeants gave a soccer ball
to a girl in a small village.
Nothing more than a smile, a
wave, and soccer ball.
Several davs,later,.'hen, the
convo' car le t iough' the
same village, th ti .te girl
tippedd the convoy and
would not let them go down
the road. She risked her life
to show where a bomb had
been set for them. Little
things can sometimes make
the difference.
Assisting Iraqis provides
them a sense of normalcy, a
form of entertainment, and
saves the lives of American
military and civilians that are
part of Operation Iraqi
Freedom. Civil. Affairs sol-
diers have many stories of
how helping poor villagers
and farmers has resulted in
Iraqis turning in weapons,
informing on bad guys, and
warning us of bombs planted
by the roads. Like us, Iraqis
want peace,- jobs, and a
future for their children.
When we give something sim-
ple to an Iraqi as a friendly
gesture like a kite, you would
not believe the change of
demeanor. They start intro-
ducing their children to you
and offer food and water. It
starts a dialogue that pays off
later.
We would like very much
to recognize your efforts by
sending back photos of the
kite distribution. We would
also be very happy to include
in the photos any corporate
banners or signs that include
the name of the company
and/or logo sent to us with

Be Quiet Before The Lord

I'm not the best at waiting
in long lines. When I get in

another line is moving faster.'
if it is, I'll change lines. More
than once my plan has back-
fired, but I do it anyway.
At times I'm the same way
when ,I drive, on \a. multilanei
road. I don't weave in and
out of the traffic, but I do
watch all the lanes carefully
to see if one is moving faster
than the rest. If it is, I
change lanes so that I can get
where I'm going a few sec-
onds sooner.

hard time waiting for any-

are filled with stress and anx-

"Be still before the Lord,"
the Psalmist said. "Quiet

Slow down. Wait for Him to
come to you."
Yes, it is a different way of

Near to the heart of

A place where sin can-

Teacher tales needed for Main Street Dinner Theatre



Old Colonial Hotel to




be setting for murder


It's about murder, darling,
and it's all set to take place
November 1-3 at the
'Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement when
Blountstown Main Street
,presents their Second
Annual Murder Mystery
Dinner Theatre.
Tales are being spun now
',by Kelli Peacock, Angie Hill,
-.and Howard Johnson, Jr.
'who are working on a script
that will take the audience
-back to old Blountstown,
'circa 1920s, 30s, and 40s.
"The setting? The Old Colonial
'Hotel where many a teacher
passed through the doors
and stayed a spell before


landing a man or moving on
to the next town to teach.
Many true stories will be
woven with a few...well, not
so true tales to spice things
up a bit. If you were one of
the teachers who entered
Calhoun County via the
Colonial Hotel (or whatever
name was on the sign outside
when you arrived), the script
writers would be most inter-
ested in speaking with you.
Call Kelli at 899-0500.
Tickets for the event will
go on sale in a couple months
with an early sellout expect-
ed. The gala affair will feature
a wine and cheese reception,
along with a delicious dinner.


Thursday night's show will
include a silent auction. An
art show and sale is planned
Friday night and a 'Made in
Calhoun County' market-
place is set for Saturday
evening.
In other Blountstown Main
Street news, the next meeting
is set for Monday, June 18, at
Connie's Kitchen downtown
at 12 noon. Make plans to
attend and get involved.

"I'd like to thank Mr. Jerry
Wyrick who served as chair-
man of the task force, and
Kathy Mizereck as facilitator,
along with each member who
served," says Superintendent
Neves. "I'm very appreciative
of everyone that served and
worked with the task force.
Their commitment to our
children, schools and com-
munity were evident from
start to finish."
The task force, formed by
Neves back in January, ini-
tially started with 21 mem-
bers, including parents,
teachers, and community
leaders from every corner of
the county. Due to various
reasons ranging from med-
ical issues to moving out of
state, four members did not
complete the six month time
of service. The task force vis-
ited each of the five school
campuses in the county and
reviewed all the facts and
funding sources. Wyrick says
school district staff members
were on hand at meetings to
provide any requested infor-
mation, but didn't offer their
own opinions. The sixth and
final meeting was held June
5 at BHS. At the May meet-
ing, the task force divided
into four small groups had
reviewed recommendations
with one set that did not sug-
gest combining schools, two
sets that did, and one that
was "on the fence." The
groups split up for further
discussion and concluded
with the 13-3 vote, along
with majority and minority
reports. Chairman Wyrick
did not cast a vote.
"This is an independent
decision by this group based
on the information they gath-
ered," Wyrick tells The
County Record.
The School Board was set
to meet Tuesday night with
Wyrick on the agenda to
present the task force recom-
mendations to Supt. Neves.
She says she will then turn
the recommendations over to
School Board members for
their consideration.
'This is just a start," says
Wyrick. "It's just a direction
for the board to consider.
And it's a direction from the
people."

The FWC is providing
sportsmen mobility-impaired
hunts, supervised youth
hunts, family hunts, quail
hunts and track vehicle and
airboat hunts on wildlife
management areas (WMAs).
Worksheets are available
from FWC regional offices
and at MyFWC.com/hunting
under "Limited Entry Hunts."
The period for submitting
applications to be included in
the random drawing is 10
a.m. (EDT) June 19 July 6.
These applications may be
submitted through the
Internet, at tax collector
offices or at any license
agent. Applications are no
longer accepted by mail.
Mobility-impaired hunts
are for persons who require
special equipment. These
hunts are not intended for
hunters who have Florida
Disabled Person Hunting and
Fishing Certificates, but
rather those who are perma-
nently confined to a wheel-
chair, persons who require
the use of mechanical aids
(crutches and walkers) to
walk or those with complete
single-leg amputations.
Another unique hunt is for
hunters 8-15 years old.
Two WMAs in the North
Central Region (Camp
Blanding and Andrews) offer
opportunities for non-hunt-
ing adults to supervise young
hunters on public hunting
areas where the number of
hunters and the hunting
areas are rigidly controlled to
provide an optimum learning


experience and maximum
safety. These hunts are pop-
ular, and the number of
applicants exceeds the num-
ber of spaces available each
year.
Family hunts are offered
at Allapattah Flats, Perdido
River, Lafayette Creek,
Matanzas, Andrews, Devil's
Hammock and Dinner Island
WMAs. Applicants age 18 or
older may apply for a permit.
The permit holder is required
to bring from one,to two chil-
dren ages 8-15. Unlike the
youth hunt, the family hunt
allows the adult supervisor to
hunt with the children.
Wildlife management
areas in the southern part of
the state offer hunters an
unusual challenge because of
their open-marsh landscape.
Hunting these areas requires
special vehicles, and the FWC
has established quotas on
the number of vehicles
allowed.
Permits to operate track
vehicles on the Rotenberger,
Everglades, Francis S. Taylor
and Holey Land WMAs and
permits to operate airboats
on the Everglades and
Francis S. Taylor WMAs are
issued in two random selec-
tions.
A quota hunt permit will
be required to hunt quail on
the Blackwater WMA Hutton
Unit and Blackwater Field
Trial Area in the Northwest
Region. There are seven two-
day hunts available on the
Hutton Unit and two four-
day hunts on the Field Trial
Area. The quota is two groups
per hunt on the Hutton Unit
and three groups per hunt on
the Field Trial Area. A group
may consist .of up to three
hunters. Shooting hours end


at 3 p.m., and the bag limit is
12 quail per group per day.

Soldier tells of kind act




by one true American


Hello to everyone back
home. It is very hot over
here. .1 would like to share a
little story with all of you
about a very kind and selfless
person. That person is one of
our local mail carriers, Mr.
Eddie Flynn, to whom I am
happy to call a friend.
Eddie has corresponded
with me all through out my
deployment. In one of the
correspondences that I sent
to Eddie, I enclosed a picture
of me and some of the local
kids here in Iraq. I told him
the story of when they see my
vehicle pull into their village;
they come out shouting Mr.
Steve, Mr. Steve. I give them
candy and fresh fruit just
about every time we go to the
villages.
While home on leave in
April, Eddie came over and
he had a Tonka Dump truck


and" Mr. Steve" written on
the side of it, along with over
100 pairs of sunglasses for
me to take back and.1give the
children.
I have given the sunglass-
es out and they were a major
hit with the kids. The kids
were eager to get them. The
Tonka Dump Truck, I gave to
one of our loyal interpreters
that lives here in Northern
Iraq, to give his son. He has
two children the same age as
mine and they dream of com-
ing to America one day. My
interpreter had tears .in his
eyes as I gave him the gift
and told him that it wasn't
from me, but another kind
American, Mr. Eddie Flynn.
Many of the children here live.
in poverty and do not have a
lot. One kind act from one
True American.
Eddie, you will never know


the difference you have made
in over one hundred chil-
dren's lives some seven thou-
sand miles away. On behalf
of all the Iraqi Children that
received your gifts, Thank
You.
My time here in Northern


Iraq has come to an end and
I'm being transferred to
another region within Iraq. I
have met some true great
Iraqi people here in Northern
Iraq and will miss them.

Calhoun County's own
Clyde Bailey is preparing to
take off for Iraq June 17 to
spend over a year serving
alongside our soldiers.
"I'll be in support and
logistics for the troops," he
tells The County Record. "At
my age, I feel good to be
needed. It's really an honor."
Bailey, 56, will work for a
private contractor, but will
live with the troops. "I'll be
working with the Vector
Control Program,"' he
explains; noting that .a carri-
er of a disease is a vector and
the team's role is to keep the
vector down or control it to
protect the troops from infec-
tion.

crew with a cookout. During
the event, he was presented a
framed photo of Logan


Barbee of Blountstown and

Help your loved ones save more



money on Medicare prescriptions


BY NORMA COMERFORD
Social Security District
Manager, Marianna
On Father's Day, we cele-
brate the special men in our
lives. There are a number of
ways you can show someone
you love how much you care.
This year, while you're watch-
ing the ball game or spending
some quality time together,
tell that special someone
about something that can
really make a difference. Tell
them how to get extra help
with their Medicare prescrip-
tion drug costs.
The high cost of medicine
can be a burden on your
loved ones who have limited
income and resources. Extra
help available through
Social Security can pay
part of their monthly premi-


ums, annual deductibles and
prescription co-payments.
The extra help could be worth
more than $3,300 per year.
To figure out whether
they're eligible, Social
Security needs to know your
loved one's income and the
value of their savings, invest-
ments and real estate (other
than the home they live in).
To qualify for the extra help,
your loved one must be
receiving Medicare and have:
Income limited to
$15,315 for an individual or
$20,535 for a married couple
living together. Even if their
annual income is higher,
your loved ones still may be
able to get some help with
monthly premiums, annual
deductibles and prescription
co-payments. Some exam-
ples where income may be


higher include if they or their
spouse:
-Support other family
members who live with them;
-Have earnings from
work; or
-Live in Alaska or Hawaii;
and
Resources limited to
$11,710 for an individual or
$23,410 for a married couple
living together. Resources
include such things as bank
accounts, stocks and bonds.
We do not count their house
and car as resources.
Social Security has an
easy-to-use online applica-
tion that anyone family
members, friends and care-
givers can complete. You
can find it at www.socialse-
curity.gov. To apply by
phone or get an application,
call Social Security at 1-800-


772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-
0778) and ask for the
Application for Help with
Medicare Prescription Drug
Plan Costs (SSA- 1020). Or go
to the nearest Social Security
office for assistance.
To learn more about the
Medicare prescription drug
plans and special enrollment
periods, visit www.medicare.
gov or call 1-800-MEDICARE
(1-800-633-4227; TTY 1-877-
486-2048).

So this Father's Day, give
someone you care about
something special: the peace
of mind that comes with
knowing extra help is avail-
able with Medicare prescrip-
tion drug costs. Then go one
step further help them
apply. There is no better way
to show how much you care.

Following arrests in identity theft scam...


Employers warned to be cautious



with their employees' identification


Florida Chief Financial
Officer Alex Sink recently
announced the arrests of 26
individuals throughout
Florida on charges of using
fraudulent identification to
gain employment. The
arrests stem from a joint
investigation by the
Department of Financial
Services (DFS) and the
Department of
Environmental Protection
(DEP) that found 115 individ-
uals using one 10-year-old's
Social Security number.
"Employers need to know
that this issue goes beyond
finding workers to fill jobs,
this is about the safety of our
citizens," said CFO Sink.
"Identity theft is a'huge and
costly problem, and employ-
ers who turn a blind eye pose
a very real and serious threat
to. the public."
The investigation began
with DEP's Division of Law
Enforcement looking into
allegations that individuals
were illegally harvesting and
selling aquatic plants, which
belong to the State of Florida.
During the course of the
investigation, agents found
that one of the suspects was
using a fictitious Social
Security number on his
employment record. DEP law
enforcement agents contact-
ed the DFS, and began work-
ing jointly with DFS agents
on the investigation.
As a result of the joint


II '


-.>


investigation, workers using
fraudulent Social Security
cards have been arrested this
week on job sites in
Seminole, St. Lucie, Broward
County and West Palm
Beach. Detectives have
learned that they bought the
cards for $30 to $300 each.
While the initial investiga-
tion found 115 individuals
using the same Social
Security number, that of a
10-year-old girl, as the inves-
tigation progressed detectives
were able to track down sev-
eral of the individuals using
that Social Security number
as well others using different
Social Security numbers, all
assigned to other people. The
investigation is continuing
with assistance also from the
U.S. Social Security
Administration.
Some common ways that
ID theft occurs include:
V Dumpster Diving.
Rummaging through trash
looking for bills or other
paper with your personal
information on it.
V Skimming. Stealing
credit/debit card numbers by
using a special storage device
when processing your card.
V Phishing. Pretending to
be financial institutions or
companies and send spam or
pop-up messages to get you
to reveal your personal infor-
mation.
VChanging Your
Address. Diverting billing


statements to another loca-
tion by completing a change
of address form.
6 Old Fashioned
Stealing. Stealing personnel
records or bribing employees
who have access; wallets and
purses; mail, including bank
and credit card statements;
pre-approved credit offers;
and new checks or tax infor-
mation.
V Pretexting. Using false
pretenses to obtain your per-
sonal information from finan-
cial institutions,. telephone
companies, and other
sources.
CFO Sink offered the fol-
lowing tips:
& Promptly remove mail
from mail box and take out-
going mail to a post office box
or drop box
V Never leave receipts and
empty your purse or wallet of
extra items
VMemorize your social
security number and pass-
words
V Do not give personal
information over the' phone,
by Internet or for a sweep-
stakes contest
VNever click on links sent
in unsolicited emails
V Use a separate credit
card for Internet purchases
/ If you apply for a credit
card and do not receive it in a
timely manner, notify the
creditor
V Notify creditors and
financial institutions in


advance if you plan to move
V Shred pre-approved
credit card offers, financial
documents and paperwork
with personal information
s Report lost or stolen
credit cards immediately
V Regularly review credit
reports

identity theft, log on to
www.fldfs.com or the Florida
Attorney General's web site

legal.com/identitytheft.
Anyone who has informa-
tion about this case or sus-
pects such fraud should call
the DFS' Fraud Fighters hot-
line at 1-800-378-0445. A
reward of up to $25,000 may
be offered for information
leading to an arrest and con-
viction.

Stabbing arrest


arrival, Summerlin advised
his stepson, William Shiver,
20, had been living with him
and his mother, but
Summerlin had taken
Shiver's belongings to his
father's home in Kinard.
Summerlin reportedly told
Dep. Dalton that if Shiver
came to his house and
caused a problem, he was
going to cut him. Dep. Dalton
warned him not to cut Shiver,
but to call the Sheriffs Office
if there was a problem.
Later that night, just after
9 p.m., Dep. Dalton was dis-
patched to Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital in reference to
Shiver being cut. He located
Shiver in the emergency
room and observed a stab
wound from the bottom of his
belly button to his sternum,
measuring approximately 10
inches. Shiver advised he
had returned home to
retrieve his personal property
around 8:15 p.m. He said
Summerlin was sitting on the


porch, grabbed a gun from
under a grill, then fired it at
the ground and told Shiver it
was a "warning shot." Shiver
said he grabbed Summerlin's
wrists and the two men fell to
the ground with Shiver land-
ing on top. Shiver said his
mother, Delores Summerlin,
grabbed his knives and, while
she was trying to pull him off
his stepfather, Summerlin
cut him in the stomach. Two
witnesses at the scene pro-
vided Dep. Dalton with the
same account as Shiver.
Dep. Dalton and Sgt. Mark
Mallory located Summerlin at
his residence. When they
