BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor


On any given day, if you're
driving along Charlie Johns.
Street in Blountstown, you are
likely to spot a free-spirited
artist who has found, a perfect
perch to paint.
Anna 'Gitana' Layton has
certainly earned her nickname.
"'Gitana' is gypsy in Spanish,"
she explains. "My friends start-
ed calling me that when I got '
my little camper and was travel-
ing around."
Originally from Kansas City,
Missouri, Layton moved to
Calhoun County about three
years ago from Massachusetts.
"In '96, I started escaping win-
ter," she says. "When the geese
started going south, I'd start
looking at my truck. A lot of
times I didn't know where I was .
going, but I always ended up -
somewhere great."
One beautiful spot she land-
ed in was St. George Island.
That trip led her to
Apalachicola, then Wakulla
Springs, and Wewahitchka,
making new friends all along
the way.
Two years later, she was .-
back in Wewa staying with one
of her new friends for the winter when she
went in search of a Bank of America branch.
She went to Panama City, certain they would
have one, but learned the nearest location
was Blountstown. On the way into town, -she
spotted the sign for the Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement and decided to explore.
Settlement founder Linda Smith gave her a
tour and she noticed signs seeking volun-
teers. "I asked her if they needed anyone to
volunteer hand spinning and she said yes,"


Layton recalls. "Folklife Days were coming up
so she invited me to come and stay in my
camper. I did that and I stayed a week and
then two weeks and then a couple months in
the little cabin on the farm."
Staying in the cabin was particularly spe-
cial since Anna was missing her own cabin
back in Massachusetts. "My sister passed
away in '88 and her husband eventually sold

Police station



plans on hold

BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Plans for a new Blountstown Police Station have been
put on hold after construction estimates came in much
higher than anticipated.
For at least the past two years, the Blountstown City
Council has been addressing the need for a new police
station. Earlier this year, the BPD vacated their old sta-
tion at the corner of SR 20 and 71, moving into the for-
mer home of the Blountstown Library on North Pear
Street. Officials agreed that the old BPD, which was too
small and in dilapidated condition, would be cleared
from the site and the new station would be constructed
there. The architectural firm, Paul Donofro and
Associates, was hired to design the facility and came
back with a'plan in keeping with the Blountstown Main
Street design scheme. Preble-Rish, the city engineering
firm, began surveying.
However, at last Tuesday night's City Council meet-
ing, City Manager John Thiemann asked the Council for
direction on whether or not to proceed with the project
after evaluating the projected costs. "To date, you have
spent $27,000 on that particular piece of property," he
reported, noting that $15,000 went to Donofro and
$12,000 to Preble-Rish. "Before we proceed, I want to
make sure everyone is aware of what it will cost us to
construct that building."
The figure reported to the Council was $930,000 with
possibly $200,000 to be deducted if inmate labor is
used. "This is everything from soup to nuts in the esti-
mate," Thiemann noted.
The Council initially set aside $250,000 for construc-
tion of the building, but Thiemann said that would not
cover it. He said USDA grants could be looked into and
the county could be contacted to see if they'd be willing
to sell or lease the old library where the BPD is located
now.
"At the end of the day, we're probably going to have
to build something," Police Chief Glenn Kimbrel
remarked. "The county has got plans for that building.
We went in and asked for two years. We're not discon-
tented there, we're enjoying the space, but we. know
we'll have to do something one day."

What will tax cut


mean to county?
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Many folks across the state of Florida are -keeping
their fingers crossed that proposed property tax cuts will
be passed. However, here in Calhoun County, officials
are concerned that these reductions could be detrimen-
tal to our local operating budget.
"We really don't have any idea at this point other than
it will be devastating," .says Calhoun County Property
Appraiser Terry Stone. "We've got to see if it's going to
pass first, then everybody wfll'have an option. It will
depend on the options they take, but if they take the
super exemption, there will have to be drastic cuts in
our county budget. Ad valorem taxes pretty well run the
sheriffs office and courthouse."
According to a press release from State
Representative Marti Coley's office, the Florida House of
Representatives, passed a historic property tax relief
and reform package Thursday that will cut property
taxes for every property owner in Florida by almost $32
billion dollars statewide over the next five years.
"Florida's taxpayers
were clear that they
needed relief and need-
ed it right away," says
Representative Coley.
"The relief we provided PIZZA & UB
in special session is sig-
nificant and immediate.
The Legislature has

part of the process by W NDN FSDAY
listening to their ideas ToppCiK Y
and giving them the
opportunity to vote on
tax relief." Large
The press release
from Rep. Coley goes on e_ h e

ment that Florida voters Additional Toppings Available

designed to grossly mislead
Florida residents. Every
county and city official in the
state should be "ticked off' to
put it nicely, at the
Governor's recent comments
reported in the Palm Beach
Post. He was quoted as say-
ing "If they (local officials) let
fire fighters and police offi-
cers go, I'll campaign against
them so they lose at the next
ballot box....".
The Governor's statement
shows a total lack of sensitiv-

bility that local officials have
in finding enough money year

and requested services for
the citizens they represent.
Again, shame on you

Letter to the Editor,
In reference to the
Calhoun County Commission
minutes of May 1, 2007 and
Commissioner Wise's motion
on Sam Atkins Park, I agree
that an animal shelter and a
phone tower are unintended
ways for the park to be used.
However, the RV park was
approved by the Department
of Community Affairs, and
the DCA is the deciding factor
for land use. The County
Commission may approve or
disapprove for the use, but
the RV park was not an unin-
tended use.
Controversy is a fact of life,
no two people can agree on
every issue 100% of the time;
however I believe this motion
was directed at preventing an
RV park at the Sam Atkins.
Park.
Public land controlled by
county commissioners and
city councils have RV parks
all over the state of Florida.
CLose by is a very successful
park in Wewahitchka that
was built two years ago and
controlled by the Gulf County
Commissioners. They are
already' expanding.
Sopchoppy has a successful
RV park and have started
,' moving ,'historic, buildings
next tO:'iti: One of the most
successful RV parks in the
state of Florida is owned and
operated by the city of
Suwannee and Dixie County
Commissioners.. These are
three that I have visited.
.There are many more in
Florida.
My point is, in most places
in Florida, RV parks are not a
problem on public land - land
owned and controlled by city,
county or state which is by
the people.

To the Editor:
This is in response to an
article in. the Tallahassee
Democrat June 5, 2007, enti-
tled "Community Outraged.
Over The. Killing of Bear". By
no stretch of the imagination
should the Democrat have
made that interpretation
based only on the com-
plaints, of Betsy Knight, a
renowned Bearphile (fanati-
cal bear lover), Russell Daws,
executive director of the
Tallahassee Museum and a
handful of others over the
killing of a 200 pound male
bear in the 1100 block of
Thomasville Rd., Tallahassee,
Florida, near Whataburger on
June 2, 2007, as constituting
community outrage. After all
Tallahassee has over 176,000
people. No comments were
allowed by people that would
rather the bear had been
killed, than :for them to have
met up with him. Gerald
Ensley, Democrat writer had
to have been outraged. This
bear was killed in keeping
with Fish and Wildlife rule
that bear are to be killed on
their third intrusion into
urban areas.
Such biased reporting by
the Democrat and other left
wing media is what convinced
the Legislature that the vast
majority of. the people
thought the black bear was
endangered and wanted bear
hunting stopped. So they put
pressure on the Fish and
Wildlife Commission to cater
to the desires of the weak-


minded sentimentalist, ignor-
ing the rights of the people
and the well-being of the bear
and stopped bear hunting in
1993. At that time there were
more bear in Florida in never
before seen places than had
ever been seen in the lifetime
of any living person. John
Wooding a former Fish and
Wildlife Bear Biologist said it
would make no difference if


there were a million bears.
Fish and Wildlife was given
constitutional status in 1943
to take management of fish
and wildlife out of politics as
it was ineffective as fish and
wildlife was at a low ebb.
From that time until Fish and
Wildlife removed it after stop-
ping bear hunting for political
reasons, there was a provi-
sion in the wildlife code that
mandated that fish and
wildlife would be managed by
biological programs. I have
investigated Game and
Fish/Fish and Wildlife
Commission for ten years
and have written a 261 page
book (Wake Up Call For
Florida's Hunters and
Fishermen) that proves bear
hunting was stopped in viola-
tion of that rule.
As to the present bear pop-
ulation let me say that based
on my knowledge of where
the Fish and. Wildlife
Conservation Commission
did and didn't check for bear,
the phenomenal increase of
road kill bear, bear sighting
in urban areas, nuisance
bear complaints and last but
not least the lack of integrity
and veracity in the Fish and
Wildlife *Conservation
Commission personnel mak-
ing the bear count and the
report. I'm totally convinced
there are at least twice the
bear in Florida than the Fish
and Wildlife Commission
claims there are. It amazes
me that the Fish and Wildlife
Commission claims to know
that 12,000 bear existed back
when, but won't be honest
about how many bear there
are now. When I hear the
Fish and Wildlife
Commission personnel
throwing all those numbers
around to support their pro-
gram I remember what Mark
Twain (Samuel Clemmons)
said when comparing liars.
That there were liars, damn
liars and statisticians.
More people have been
attacked by black bear than
any other bear. When the
black bear had been around
people who don't molest them
long enough for them to loose


their fear of people they will
as monster alligators have
begin to attack people and as
with the alligator Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission won't have the
guts to protect people.
Remember three women
killed in ten days in 2006 by
monster alligators. Rodney
Berretta Fish and Wildlife
Commission chairman in a
letter to the editor said that,
didn't indicate a trend and
the public was pleased with
the Fish and Wildlife
Commissions alligator pro-
gram.,
I was raised going to the
Suwannee River where we
saw big sturgeons jump out
of the water. I never heard of
anyone getting injured by
these sturgeons jumping on
the Suwannee. After the fruit,
loops influenced Fish and
Wildlife management wildlife
seems to be on the verge of
getting out of control. Most
Legislatures and Bureaucrats
do what they think will get
them re-elected and that is
the same reason they can't
correct the mess they have
made. I have no faith in the
Legislature, Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission, or
the courts to curb this fanat-
ical worldwide philosophy
that puts animal. preserva-
tion above human life. It will
be interesting to see if the
Fish and Wildlife
Commission will chicken out
on killing bear on their third
entry into urban areas, All
transported black bear
become someone else's prob-
lem.
Over population of bear
not people moving into bear
habitat is the problem. Bears
social instincts keep them
from crowding up. First the
cause of the greatest mortali-
ty of black bear is, dominant
males killing and eating
cubs. You could take out
50% of the dominant male
population and not' curtail
reproduction as boar bear
breed multiple cows. Also
during breeding season when
a dominant male bear cross-
es the trail of a juvenile male


the juvenile either has to out
run the dominant male or
die. Thus by reducing the
number of dominant male
bear you not only increase
female habitat but reduce the
number of juvenile males
chased into urban areas.
Bears are to the point of
intolerability in Carrabelle
and Eastpoint. Carrabelle's
City Commissioners and
School Board Members
requested that Fish and
Wildlife Commission bring
bear hunting back, as the
problem. didn't exist until
bear hunting was stopped.
Of course this fell on deaf
.ears.
Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commissioners
harps on teaching the public
how to co-exist with the
predatory wildlife. It is evi-
dent the Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
doesn't understand predatory
wildlife so what they teach is
a dangerous farce.
You can go against nature
only so long before the situa-
tion comes unglued. Then
the cost to fish and wildlife
will be greater than if wildlife
management had been based
on common sense all the
while.

Raymond Hamlin Jr.

really from within. A lot of
people say, 'I can't paint,' but
I say,, 'I bet you could if you

in my classes that said they
can't draw or paint and they
come out with wonderful

The Kingdom and The King
Luke 17:21-25
There is a big difference
between the Kingdom and the
coming of the King. The
Kingdom is quiet, private, and
intimate. Observers may not
notice it, because it is within us.
There is no doubt the Pharisees
missed the Kingdom among
them. They were looking for rit-
ual and practices marking it
presence. misled by the absence
of flashy royal parades, regal
posturing, banners, .and loud
music, the Pharisees assumed
that the promised Kingdom of
God was still to come.
The very thing that stands out
about the Kingdom would have
been most difficult for them to
grasp. Their system was all
rules,regulations, penalties, and
consequences. The hallmark of
the Kingdom is grace, forgive-
ness, and spiritual resources to
the neediest of us.
They missed it all. But do you
k fow what? Nobody is going to
miss the coming of the King!
When Christ returns to rule, it

Prayer Chainers

hosting Sunday

School Convention
We, the Prayer Chainers'
Mission of God, are jubilant
to announce and invite you
to our First Annual Sunday
School Convention.
This year's theme is
"Moving to Another Spiritual
Level with new Things". The
theme is drawn from (Isaiah
42:9), "Behold the former
things have come to pass,
And new things I declare;
Before they spring forth I tell
you of them"; (Isaiah 43:19),
'Behold I will do a new thing,
now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it? I will
even make a road in the
wilderness and rivers in the
desert.
The Convention began
June 19th and will continue
through June 24th. Services
will begin daily at 9:00 a.m.
and 7:00 p.m., Sunday serv-
ices will begin at 11:00 a.m.
and 3:00 p.m., and it will
convene at our church locat-
ed at 19455 McDaniel Road
in the Hugh Creek
Community of Blountstown.
Even though we are in a
spiritual warfare and there
are all kinds of opposition
before us, we as people of
God must work diligently
together to hold to the stan-
dard and do like Nehemiah,
ignore the sarcasm of the
enemy, pray to God and con-
tinue to build. Come help us
lift up the name of the Lord.

again till Wednesday night
against Bristol. We had a
great game and won 19 to 1.
On Thursday night we had to
face the relentless Bristol AA
All-Star team again. Bristol
played a great game, but
Blountstown wound up on
top with a score of 9-4.
Friday night was for all the
marbles., Our guys hit the
field with confidence and it
paid off. We outscored the
Malone All-Stars 19-1.

Dry conditions put damper on crops
The folks at Blountstown Produce were busy selling some beautiful fresh peas last week, but
they say finding local crops has been difficult this season. "I try to grow most of my own," says
Bobby Hewett (pictured above), who owns the local produce market."But this year, I'm hav-
ing to buy where I can. Nobody has got any because it's been so dry. (The farmers) have
been hurt real bad." Hewett's pea sheller beats the old fashioned method with a stick. "It can
do a hamper in 10 to 15 minutes," he reports. The variety on hand includes pinkeye purple
hulls, cream 8, white acre, green and speckled butter beans.

own objectives, soils and
stand conditions, whether
fertilization would be a cost-
effective practice in their tim-
ber standss. Also included in
the program agenda will be
discussion about fertilizer
materials, current costs,
application techniques,
Silviculture Best
Management Practices and
more.
The program, sponsored


by Florida's Forest
Stewardship Program, is
scheduled, for Wednesday
June 27,. 1:30 pm to 6:00 pm
Eastern Time (12:30 to 5:00
pm Central Time) and will be

Florida is experiencing one
of its driest years on record.
The U.S. Drought Monitor
has the entire area. rated
from "moderate drought" to
"extreme" in South Florida.
Water restrictions are in
place for many parts of the
state. In South Florida, a very
dry 2006 (third driest on
record for the state as a
whole) and a dry beginning to
2007 had Lake Okeechobee
at a record low of 8.89 feet on
May 31. It should be at 13.23
feet.
It's not just the state's
human residents who are
affected. The fish and wildlife
are feeling the effects of low
water levels also.
According to Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) officials,
there are both positive and
negative effects for the state's
wildlife during this time.
The cycle of floods and
droughts that Florida experi-
ences is natural, normal and
recurring. Florida's ecosys-
tems are dependent on this
cycle to maintain healthy fish
and wildlife populations. The
long-term benefits of
droughts and floods often
exceed the short-term nega-
tive effects.
"Short-term droughts
probably are more beneficial
to freshwater fish and their
habitat than they are harm-
ful," said Fred Cross, region-
al freshwater fisheries biolo-
gist in the FWC's regional
office in Panama City.
The drought exposes lake
bottoms and dries up the
muck that has accumulated.
Desirable vegetation expands
into deepwater portions of
lakes and rivers, and seeds
germinate on exposed lake
bottoms. However, during a
drought, invasive and exotic
plants such as hydrilla can
become more of a problem. It
also provides the opportunity
to use prescribed burning to
reduce vegetation in the wet-
lands. This creates open

water habitat, which helps
water quality and reduces the
potential for wildfires,
according to Cross.
"Droughts can increase
the effectiveness of planned
habitat enhancement proj-
ects," said Dale Jones, sec-
tion leader for the FWC's
Division of Freshwater
Fisheries Management.
While water levels are low,
boat ramps, docks, seawalls
and other structures can be
repaired. Marine species are
able to go much farther
upstream in some river sys-
tems, providing additional
fishing opportunities to
freshwater anglers.
Droughts can reduce the
aquifer level, allowing sink
holes to form and drain
lakes. Salinity increases in
tidal creeks may stress fish,
and low water levels can trap
fish, resulting in fish kills
from low dissolved oxygen,
according to biologists.
During these times of low
water levels, boaters need to
exercise extreme caution to
prevent striking an underwa-
ter object or the bottom. At
the same time, no matter
how shallow the water, there
always is a drowning hazard.
FWC officials strongly
encourage boaters always to
wear their life jackets while
on the water.
There also may be access
problems due to boat ramps
being out of water and steep

Parents urged to heed



Thomas the Train recall


TALLAHASSEE - Florida
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is urging
parents to pay attention to a
new recall on some Thomas
the Train toys. The
Consumer Product Safety
Commission in cooperation
with RC2 Corp., the toy
importer announced the vol-
untary recall due to a lead
poisoning hazard. Parents
should take the recalled toys
away from their kids immedi-
ately..
Various Thomas & Friends
Wooden Railway Toys contain
lead in the surface paint.
Lead can be toxic and cause
illness if ingested by young
children., The recall involves
wooden vehicles, buildings
and other train set compo-
nents. The front of the pack-
aging has the logo "Thomas &
Friends Wooden Railway" on
the upper left-hand corner. A
manufacturing code may be
located on the bottom of the
product or inside the battery
cover. Toys marked with
codes containing "WJ" or "AZ"
are not included in this
recall.
'Young children often put
their toys in their mouths so
the presence of lead in the
paint is a serious thing,"
Bronson said. "I want to help
the CPSC get the word out as
quickly as possible."
There have been no report-'
ed injuries from the product.
About, a million and a half
toys are involved in the recall.
The CPSC says people who
have the recalled toys should
contact RC2 Corp. for a
replacement toy. The compa-
ny has a toll free number,
(866) 725-4407, open from
8a.m. - 5p.m. Central .Time
from Monday through
Thursday and 8a.m. - 1 la.m
Central Time on Friday. The
company can also be contact-
ed on its website at
http://recalls.rc2.com.
The recalled products


include:

BY CONGRESSMAN ALLEN BOYD

Since I came to
Washington over .10 years
ago, I have been very vocal
about the need for honesty
and accountability in our
1 government, and a key com-
ponent of an honest and
accountable government is a
Congress that is clear and
l upfront about its fiscal prior-
ities. If we can't shoot
l straight with the American
people about our federal
budget-how much our gov-
ernment programs cost and
how we are going to pay for
them-then we shouldn't be
here.
Not only have the
Administration and its sup-
JiL porters in Congress failed in
this respect, they also have
failed to act as responsible
, is stewards of our hard-earned
muse- tax dollars. Over the last six
years, they increased spend-
ing levels by over $260 billion
and added $3 trillion to the
national' debt. Spending
more than we take in is an
unsustainable path that will
e damage our' economy, our
standard of living, and ulti-
mately, our national security,
and this irresponsible fiscal
. policy is exactly what the
o Blue Dog Coalition is working
to put an end to in the 110th
Sand Congress.
a. Recently, the Blue Dogs
of thway. introduced the "Blue Dog
The Fiscal Accountability
Bike Package," three pieces of leg-
islation that would further
restore fiscal discipline to the
PLAT federal government after
TE years of budgetary misman-
Ihoun agement and irresponsible
es atdeficit spending. These bills
iite 2 reflect the core principles-fis-
cal responsibility, govern-
day -ment accountability, and
pay . honesty in the . budget
pm. process-that are the very
foundation of the Blue Dog
S Coalition.
The primary component of
the Blue Dog Fiscal
Accountability Package is a
, balanced budget amend-
ment. This constitutional
amendment would hold the


federal government to the
same, common sense stan-
dard as the 49 states that
already require an annual
balanced budget, including
our state of Florida. Further,
this amendment would pro-
hibit cuts in Social Security
benefits from ever being used


to balance the budget. Also,
the balanced budget require-
ment can be waived with a
three-fifths vote in the House
and the Senate to ensure the:
necessary flexibility in cases
of war, natural disaster, or

Carl Edwards

o' Sponsor: Office Depot
Crew Chief: Wally Brown
Car: Ford
Biography:
Carl Edwards' big break came in 2002, when he
competed in 7 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series
.events for MB Motorsports. His best finish 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, replacing Jeff Burton, who left the team,
in the #99 Ford Taurus for Roush Racing, at the
Michigan International Speedway. 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.


Dale Eamhardt Jr. is joining Hendrick Motorsports, possibly .-
moving him one step closer to a championship that has elud- ," \
ed him. Rick Hendrick said Eamhardt will replace Kyle Busch -
on his star-studded roster of drivers. The announcement last
Wednesday ended five weeks of recruiting for NASCAR's
most popular driver, who became a free agent May 10 when
he said he would leave DEI at the end of this season. His criteria for a new team includ-
ed finding a place he could win championships, and Hendrick is the perfect fit. Hendrick
has won six championships, and has 10 wins through 15 points races this season.

Carl Edwards did a backflip off the.car to celebrate his fifth
career win on Sunday at Michigan International
Speedway by holding off Martin Truex Jr. It was Cadrl's first
win since Nov. 11, 2005. "This one is for you, Dad,"
Edwards told reporters as he celebrated in victory lane on
Father's Day. The victory gave car owner Jack Roush his
second win of the season. Truex, who had his first victo-
ry two weeks ago at Dover, hasn't finished lower than
third in the past three races and climbed to 10th spot in
the series standings. Two-time series champion Tony
Stewart, winless this season, was third. Dale Eamhardt
Jr. was fifth moving him into the 12th spot for the Chase.

Tax cut bill


Legal AdvertiseM i


on most homeowner's tax
bills. The constitutional
amendment eliminates
inequities in our current
property tax system, provides
Tangible Personal Property
(TPP) tax relief to Florida's
businesses and eliminates
77% - more than 1 million -
of Florida's small businesses
from the TPP tax rolls.
"This is more than just
relief for homeowners,"
Representative Coley points
out. "It's also an opportunity
to strengthen Florida's econ-
omy. Businesses will get the
relief they need and citizens
will have more money to rein-
vest in our marketplace."
The property tax relief and
reform package also includes
a statutory tax relief bill,
House Bill 1B, that will
immediately cut taxes and
cap future tax increases for
all property owners; limit
local governments' ability to
unnecessarily raise taxes in
the future; and provides
immediate savings to home-
owners, second homeowners,
and commercial property


owners.
The proposed package will:
V Allow homeowners to
choose between their current
Save Our Homes protections
or the new, "Super
Homestead" and expanded
taxpayer protections under
the constitutional amend-
ment. This creates a form of
portability for homeowners
who would otherwise lose sig-
nificant tax savings when
they move. Rather than start-
ing over with only a $25,000
homestead exemption and
zero Save Our Homes protec-
tions, the homeowner would
immediately have a home-
stead . exemption up to
$195,000 as soon as they
move in.
* Create a new "Super
Homestead" exemption to
transform the inequitable
Florida property tax system.
* The new exemption cov-
ers 75% of the first $200,000
of value and 15% of the next
$300,000.
m Thus, the maximum
super exemption is
$195,000.


Drug busts cont'd


Bryant tried to flee and
swerved in the direction of
the deputies who then fired
two rounds into the passen-
ger side front and rear tires.
Inv.. Michael Bryant, Sgt.
Mark Mallory, and Deputy
Bliss Moreau converged at
the intersection of the post
office parking lot and SR 71
and blocked the exit.,
Terrance Bryant and his pas-
senger, Holland, were taken
into custody.
In addition to the money
used in the buy, a pill bottle
was found on Holland with
white powder residue sus-
pected to be cocaine.
Bryant is charged with
sale of cocaine and aggravat-
ed assault on a law enforce-
ment officer. Holland is
charged with being a princi-
pal in the first degree to the
sale of cocaine.

In addition to the deputies
and investigators named
above, Altha Police Dept.
Officer Ricky Mayo also
assisted in the case.
In an unrelated case, Scott
Bailey of Blountstown was
arrested last Tuesday on
marijuana charges.
According to the Calhoun
County Sheriffs Office, Inv.
Michael Bryant and Inv. Ken
Futch executed a search war-
rant on Bailey's Lambert
Street home. A black pot con-
taining three marijuana
plants was found on a cov-
ered porch at the rear of the
residence. On the back deck,
three pots were located, two
containing one marijuana
plant and another with three
plants. Five sandwich bags
with pieces of paper towel
and marijuana seeds were
also recovered.


Bailey arrived home dur-
ing the search and reportedly
offered that he had a bag of
marijuana in his bedroom on
the dresser. It was found,
along with a pipe and two
marijuana cigarettes.
Another. pipe was discovered
in! the living room. In the
game room, a plastic cup of
marijuana seeds and ciga-
rettes, rolling papers, and a
pipe were found.
Bailey was charged with
manufacture of marijuana,
possession of less than 20
grams of marijuana, and pos-
session of drug parapherna-
lia.

The County Record, JUNE 20, 2007, Page 12




Boyd seeks fiscal integrity-


severe economic down-
turn. The implementation of
a balanced budget amend-
ment is critical if we are ever
going to restore honesty and
accountability to the fiscal
process.
The Blue Dogs also are
working to build on the
efforts we have already made
this year to require the feder-
al government to live within
its means with the return to
pay-as-you-go (PAYGO)
spending rules. The second
piece of legislation would
reinstate PAYGO rules into
law and put into place addi-
tional caps on spending by
the federal government.
Used together, these proven
effective policies were instru-


mental in producing budget
surpluses in the late 1990s
and early 2000s.
The last piece of legislation
presents reasonable solu-
tions to longstanding, and
rarely mentioned, problems
in Congress. All too often,
members of Congress are
forced to vote on legislation
without knowing exactly how
much the legislation will cost
the American people. This
contradicts my beliefs and
those of my fellow Blue Dogs.
This measure takes steps to
allow sufficient time to exam-
ine legislation and determine
its actual cost. This bill also
would ensure that members
of Congress have at least
three days to review the final

text of any bill before voting.
It is unacceptable for mem-
bers of Congress to vote on
legislation, often hundreds of
pages long, with little or, no
time to understand how it
will affect the people we rep-
resent, and the Blue Dog bill
will put an end to this prac-
tice.
As the leader of the Blue


Dog Coalition, I am firmly
committed to restoring the
fiscal integrity of our great
country, and all of these
measures are real steps
toward accomplishing this
goal.
If enacted into law, these
reforms will help to strength-
en our economy and reduce


the deficit, thereby increasing
national saving and promot-
ing economic growth. I am
eager to continue working in


Congress to tackle our finan-
cial problems now so that we
can all enjoy economic health
in the future.

day."
Chief Kimbrel said he is
hopeful that the corner prop-
erty where the station is pro-
posed to be built would sell,
providing additional money
for construction. The site is
valued around $300,000. He
also noted that the change in
architectural style, along
with an additional 1000
square feet added by the
architect, accounted for some
of the increase in cost projec-
tions.
"I'd personally like to see a
police station in line with


what Main Street is trying to
do," said Mayor Marsha
Harpool. "Is there any way it
could possibly be scaled back
to where it started and get
more in line with the figure
the previous council
approved? Would you be
happy with a smaller ver-
sion?"
"Absolutely," Chief
Kimbrel replied.
The Council voted to con-
tact the County Commission
about the cost of the old
library, then investigate other
possibilities.


Drought cont'd


drop-offs at power-loading
holes at end of boat ramps
that are usable at current
water levels.
According to Allan
Woodward, research admin-
istrator at the FWC's
Gainesville Wildlife Research
Lab, "Droughts can be
stressful on most aquatic
wildlife, including alligators."
As water levels drop, alli-
gators fare reasonably well
because of the temporary
concentration of prey items
(fish, turtles and birds) into
remaining water, although
there, may be increased can-
nibalism.
"Under prolonged
droughts, such as the one we
are now experiencing, alliga-
tors may be forced to move in
search of water. Traveling
over dry land can cause
increased mortality from
motor vehicles as well as
dehydration. Smaller alliga-
tors may fall prey to preda-
tors during these searches
for water," Woodward said.
Movements across land
usually will result in more
frequent interactions with
humans, and alligators may
get trapped in areas from
which they cannot readily
escape. This results in an
increase in nuisance alligator
complaints.
"We have found that there
is no increase in the number
of attacks on humans during
droughts. When moving over
dry land, alligators are awk-
ward and out of their ele-
ment. They merely want to
find water, which provides
them with security and food,"
Woodward said.
Native reptiles and
amphibians are adapted to
periodic droughts and occa-
sional wildfires. Droughts
and fires can cause elevated
mortality of reptiles and
amphibians, but most popu-
lations recover quickly when
rainfall returns to normal
levels.
"In fact, some reptiles and
amphibians depend on fires
to maintain their desired
habitats," Woodward said.
"Snakes normally are not as
much of a problem during
droughts as during rapid
water level increases after
droughts."
For marine species, there
is good and bad news during
a drought.
For oysters, the increased
salinity in bays and estuaries
means an increased risk of
parasite infection, according
to Bill Arnold, research sci-
entist at the FWC's Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute in
St. Petersburg.
"Clams are a high-salinity
species, so drought condi-
tions generally are good for
these bivalves. However, the
increased salinity also may
support an increased abun-
dance 'of predators," Arnold
said.
Since most of the success-
ful populations of bay scal-
lops occur offshore, they
aren't as strongly influenced
by freshwater inputs. Florida
droughts usually occur in
spring, and the scallops
spawn in fall or winter.
"By the time the drought
sets in and has an influence,
the scallops are relatively
large and more tolerant.
Scallops also are a high-
salinity species, so it is the
wet rather than the dry years
that appear to be more prob-
lematic," Arnold said.
For the upland species,
there are also pros and cons
to the drought. According to
Scott Johns, district biologist
from the FWC's Olustee Field
Office, hunters may observe
smaller and fewer yearling
deer this fall as the drought
in North Florida occurred
during the time when the
fawns are born.hunters may
observe smaller and fewer


yearling deer this fall as the
drought in North Florida
occurred during the time
when the fawns are born.
'This made life more diffi-
cult on these fawns and their
mothers that need extra
water in their diets while
nursing," Johns said.
The tips and shoots of
growing plants is a large part
of deer diets during the
spring and summer.
"This is a favorite deer
food, and without the protein
from these plants, fawn
growth will be delayed and
even antler development in
bucks could be stunted this
year," Johns said, "Plant pro-
duction is very limited during
droughts, especially those
favored by wildlife such as
blackberry, palmetto berry,
mushrooms and low bush
blueberries. Plants shut
down new growth during
periods of drought and con-
serve any water available for
survival."
New growth is put off until
favorable conditions return.
Oaks produce fewer acorns
or may not produce acorns at
all during periods of drought.
Birds are generally unaf-
fected by local drought as
they can move easily to find
water. However, since this
drought has occurred during
nesting time, many nests
could have been abandoned,
and are at a greater risk of
predation. Bird nests are
especially at risk during
droughts mainly due to the
increased risk of wildfire.
This would impact birds that
nest on the ground, such as
turkey and quait"'the most,
according to Johns.
Research has shown bob-
white quail reproduction to
be negatively affected by hot,
dry periods. Although the
drought in North Florida has
been very dry, it was relative-
ly cool, so quail reproduction
may have not been severely
impacted.
"Catastrophic events are
also more likely during
drought years. Large-scale,
fast moving wildfires can kill
and displace many species,
especially those that are
unable to move quickly.
Because birds are very sensi-
tive to air quality, they can be
killed by smoke inhalation,
even when they are many
miles from the fire," he said.
However, even fires can
produce benefits. Wildfires,
which occur more frequently
during drought periods, can
open up dense, tangled areas
that have become overgrown
and useless to many species.
"For example, when wild-
fires burn the muck and peat
from dry cypress ponds and
wetlands, this creates open-
ings and deepwater areas
used by ducks, wading birds,
and other wetland species,"
Johns said.
Gopher tortoises are
somewhat adapted to life in a
dry environment. These ani-
mals are able to conserve
water in several ways.
"But the prolonged
drought we have seen in
North Florida this spring
could have significant
impacts on the hatchlings
and juvenile tortoises," Johns
said.
Survival during a drought
is easier on larger animals
than smaller ones. For exam-
ple, white-tailed deer and
bears are able to cover large
amounts of territory in
search of water.
"And as cruel as it may
sound, the drought is one of
nature's ways of eliminating
the weaker, less vigorous
individuals of a species.
Nature is continually elimi-
nating such animals from the
population. The spread of
disease and parasites can
decrease when these animals
are gone," Johns said.
