Getting a drivers
license will soon be much
less of a hassle .as Tax
Collector Doris Burkett is
bringing the service back
to Calhoun County.
Since February 2005,
residents have had to
drive to Marianna to
obtain a new license or
renew an old one after
Burkett opted to discon-
tinue offering the service
: through the . Tax
Collector's office. With
folks from surrounding
counties flooding the
office, she says local citi-
zens had long waits to
conduct regular county
tax related business.
However, she .has since
worked out a solution that
will" help area residents
have a shorter drive to get

City Managerresigns


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Less than three months after
accepting the Blountstown City
Manager position, John Thiemann
has resigned.
"It's just a personal matter,"
Thiemann tells The County Record,
emphasizing that there was no prob-
lem with the job. "It has everything
to do with my personal life."
Councilman Clifford Jackson says
he is disappointed to lose Thiemann,
who came to Blountstown after serv-
ing as a consultant and finance
director for the City of Starke. "I
actually thought he was beginning to
catch on and do a good job," he


remarks. "I was
real pleased. As
far as proce-
dures go with
the grants, he
was very
knowledgeable
and he really
understood
where we need-
ed to go."
A special
meeting to dis-
cuss the matter
was set for


JOHN THIEMANN


Tuesday night. Details were unavail-
able at press time. However, Mayor
Marsha Harpool tells The County
Record it makes sense to go back to


the list of candidates that were
recently ranked and take the next
person in line for the job.
'That was an exhaustive process
we went through and we got down to
five," she explains. '"The first was
tossed out for background check
reasons and then [Thiemann] was
hired. The simplest thing to do is go
to number three and that's what I'll
be recommending."
Harpool says number three is
Lenwood Heron of New Brockton, AL,
who serves as president of Wenworth
Corporation, a private consulting
firm. He worked in Blountstown in
the late 70s as a planning program
coordinator for the Apalachee
Regional Planning Council.


CELEBRATION


'Free family

Tuesday



at the park

Inflatable games, free hot dogs, live music,
and a spectacular show in the sky planned


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor


Calhoun County will start the
Independence Day celebration a lit-
tle early with a spectacular fire-
works show set for Tuesday, July 3,
at Sam Atkins Park.
The event, sponsored by
RiverTown Community Church for
the second straight year, is com-
pletely free. Guests will be treated to
complimentary hot dogs, chips, and
sodas, along with a concert by the
RiverTown band. Music will include
all your favorite hits, with the best of
the oldies and some new tunes.
Lisa Yoder, who is coordinating
the event for RiverTown, says the


Blountstown Greenway will be open
during the festivities and security
will be provided on the trail after-
.ward. "When people are coming in,
they'll be fine because it's daylight,
but they'll be leaving after dark," she
points out. "We're reminding every-
one to bring their flashlights and
there will also be security because
there are no lights on the trail."
Inside the park, the layout is
basically the same as last year with
the concert going on in one of the
fields next to the concession stand.
On another ball field inside the main
park, inflatable games will be pro-
vided for the kids. The fireworks will
be launched from a different loca-
tion this year - the high school base-


Know who did this?

The gazebo park in downtown Blountstown was recently struck by van-
dals, Despite the work of the City of Blountstown, along with the Torreya
Garden Club, Keep Calhoun County Beautiful, Blountstown Main Street,
and countless citizens who have volunteered to weed, decorate, and
pick up trash at the gazebo, someone decided to vandalize the park
by spray painting graffiti on the brick pavers, walls, and benches, If you
have any information on who is responsible for this vandalism, contact
the Blountstown Police Department at 674-5987,


ball field.
"It was a blast last year to bring
our community together and enjoy a
night at the park," say Yoder. "The
Pyrotechnics crew did a great fire-
works show, and we're excited to see
what they're going to add into this
year's show."
Make plans to join the fun this
Tuesday night. Gates open at 6
p.m., with FREE games, FREE food,
and entertainment available from 7-
9 p.m. Bring your lawn chairs and
blankets, gather your family and
friends, and' get set for a night of
fun.
Remember: Please do not bring
any alcohol or personal fireworks
into the park.

BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A trial ended in the
Calhoun County courtroom
just minutes after it got
started last Wednesday after
Circuit . Judge Hentz
McClellan dismissed the
case.
Jackie Dale Reagan, Jr.
was charged with three
counts of aggravated assault
with a firearm last fall. The
case began on September 6
when Tyler Harris and Terry
White, employees of
Advantage Asset Recovery,
and Daniel G. Ingram. from
TitleMax of Dothan, report-
edly went to Reagan's prop-
erty and attempted to seize
his 2005 GMC Sierra pick-
up. Reagan allegedly
approached them with a
firearm and ordered them off
his land.
According to court docu-
ments, Reagan had entered
into a title pawn agreement
with TitleMax and was
loaned $5000 against his

congestion out of the office.
"I never minded having the
service, but it just needed to
be in a different location than
in here where everybody had
to wait," she explains, noting
that the new office will be in
the center of the first floor of


the courthouse, across from
the Property Appraiser's
office. "I've been working on
it, but you don't know until
you get to that point whether
it's going to be successful.
The equipment is there, we
just have a few more things
that need to be done."


Burkett says the office
should be ready to open by
August 1 if everything goes as
planned. Houis will be from
8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Today is National HIV Testing Day



Free tests at health dept.


The Florida Department of
Health (DOH) joins communi-
ty partners statewide in rec-
ognizing today, June 27, as
National HIV Testing Day,
encouraging all Floridians to
get tested. Free "no needle"
testing is available at the
Calhoun County Health
Department.
The theme of this year's
campaign, 'Take the Test,
Take Control," focuses on the
importance of informing at-
risk individuals of the oppor-
tunity to discover their HIV
status and learn about
access to prevention and
healthcare services.
"'Too many Floridians with
HIV are diagnosed so late in
the course of their infection
that they may be unable to
take advantage of life-pro-
longing treatments," DOH
Secretary Ana M. Viamonte
Ros, M.D., M.P.H. said. "HIV
testing can reduce the spread
of HIV. When infected per-
sons are aware of their sta-
tus, they can take the neces-
sary precautions to stop
spreading the disease."
Approximately 125,000
Floridians are currently
infected with HIV/AIDS, with
20 percent unaware of their
condition. DOH is asking
communities to take a leader-
ship role in promoting and


encouraging HIV testing and
providing access to preven-
tion and care services.
"HIV testing is easier, more
accessible and less invasive
than ever," Tom Liberti, Chief
of the Bureau of HIV/AIDS
said. "It is important to
reach out to communities at
increased risk of HIV infec-
tion, especially African-
American and Latino popula-
tions, both of which are dis-
proportionately affected with
HIV when compared to other
demographic groups. We
encourage our community
partners to help us spread
the message about the
importance of HIV testing
everywhere people live, work,
play and worship."
Testing for HIV is widely
available throughout Florida.
On June 27th, many loca-
tions will extend hours of
operation for free testing.
Several choices now exist for
people seeking an HIV test.
Traditional blood tests and
oral swab tests provide
results in about two weeks.
The newer and more rapid
HIV test, which requires only
a finger stick blood specimen
or an oral swab, delivers reli-
able results in minutes.
However, reactive rapid tests
must be confirmed with a fol-
low-up traditional HIV test


before the person tested can
be informed they're infected
with HIV.
DOH recommends testing
if a person has participated
in unprotected sexual activity
or has shared syringes or
injected needles through
drug use, tattooing or pierc-
ing. Additionally, all preg-
nant women and children
born to HIV-positive women
should get tested.
DOH promotes and pro-
tects the health and safety of


all people in Florida through
the delivery of quality public
health services and the pro-
motion of health care stan-
dards. For more information
about National HIV Testing
Day, please visit DOH's Web
site at www.doh.state.fl.us
and select "AIDS/HIV" from
the drop down box. For addi-
tional information about how
to get tested, please contact
your primary health care
provider or local county
health department.

Calhoun County to know that
it is a great accomplishment
at any level to be able to
send a team to a state tour-
nament, and to know we are
sending two teams in two dif-
ferent divisions and possibly a
third is a tremendous accom-
plishment for a small town. We
have a tremendous amount
of talent on all three of these
teams.
The AA will be traveling to
Lakeland on Friday, June 29th.
The first game will be played
at 2:00pm CST on Saturday,

ment in Havana on Monday,
June 25th. In the event they
win a bid to the Majors State
Tournament, they will be leav-
ing on Friday, July 13, for
Okeechobee, FL, to begin
their tournament play on
Saturday, July 14th.
We want to say "thank you"
to all the citizens and busi-
nesses in our surrounding


FWC passes new captive



wildlife rules and others


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) passed a
new rule concerning FWC-
managed lands and approved
a draft rule outlining bonding
requirements for exhibiting
potentially dangerous ani-
mals and venomous reptiles.
Final public hearings for the
draft rule will be at the
September Commission
meeting. The FWC took the
action during its two-day
meeting at Melbourne.
Commissioners also
approved members of a panel
to evaluate a petition to
change the listing status of
the peregrine falcon during
2007-08.
'Following an overview of
the imperiled species man-
agement plan process,
Commissioners reviewed
drafts of management plans
for manatees, gopher tortois-
es and Panama City crayfish.
Final consideration of the
management plans for the
manatee and gopher tortoise
will take place at the FWC's
.September meeting in St.
Petersburg. Final considera-
tion for the Panama City
crayfish will take place at the
Commission's February
meeting in Panama City.
Commissioners also
approved an interim policy to
end entombment of gopher
tortoises - requiring develop-
ers to relocate them, rather
than allow the animals to be
buried in their burrows amid
development. The interim
policy will remain in effect
until the FWC can launch the
new permitting framework,
proposed in the draft gopher
tortoise management plan.
FWC staff presented an
array of proposed changes to
the Alligator Management
Program. Commissioners
directed the staff to proceed
with developing rules to
change some of the allowable
methods of taking alligators
and to step up efforts to
make Floridians more aware
of ways to coexist with alliga-
tors peacefully.
In addition,


Commissioners approved
land-acquisition proposals
including the Nature
Conservancy's Davidson
Ranch parcel as a mitigation
park, the Nature
Conservancy's donation of
the Janet Butterfield Brooks
Preserve as a mitigation park
and two donated Nature
Conservancy parcels as addi-
tions to Chinsegut Wildlife
and Environmental Area.
Concerning marine issues,
the FWC approved rule
amendments for snook that
lower the daily recreational
bag limit from two fish to one
on Florida's Atlantic Coast
and narrow the current 27-
34 inches total length snook
slot limit to 28-32 inches in
Atlantic waters and 28-33
inches in Gulf, Everglades
National Park and Monroe
County waters.
Rule amendments also


add the first half of December
and all of February to the
closed harvest season in
Gulf, Everglades and Monroe
County waters and allow
snook anglers statewide to
carry more than one cast net
aboard a vessel. The new
snook rules will be in place in
time for the reopening of
snook season in September.
Commissioners also dis-
cussed proposed new rules
that would allow licensed
trap fishers to designate peo-
ple to recover and possess
their traps when the governor
and FWC declare an emer-
gency. The proposed rules
also would exempt local,
state and federal officials
from having to get FWC
approval before removing
traps, derelict traps and trap
debris from areas where trap-

GCEC Youth Tour in D.C.


Three local students -
Taylor Shelton, Samantha
Spivey and Samantha Wade -
recently traveled to
Washington, D. C. as winners
of the Washington, D. C.
Youth Tour Contest that
rural electric cooperatives
across the nation participate
in.
Shelton and Spivey were
eligible to go on the trip as
winners of Gulf Coast
Electric Cooperative's Youth
Tour Contest. Each year, the
Cooperative sponsors the
contest for eleventh-graders
whose parents are members
of GCEC. Contestants are
interviewed by a panel of
three judges from the electric
cooperative industry and two
winners are chosen to travel
on an all-expenses-paid trip
to Washington, D. C. in June,
where they join nearly 1,500
other eleventh-grade stu-
dents and 275 chaperones
representing 47 states to tour
our nation's capitol.
Wade, daughter of Gulf
Coast Electric Employee
Timmy Wade, was eligible to
go on the trip by winning a
statewide essay contest spon-
sored by Florida Electric
Cooperatives Association.
FECA sponsors the annual
contest for children and
grandchildren of electric
cooperative employees and
board members, since these
students are ineligible to
compete in their local electric
cooperatives' contests.
While in Washington, the
students ' toured the
Holocaust, Air and Space and
International Spy Museums;
Arlington National Cemetery;
the Iwo Jima Monument; the
U. S. Capitol area; the mall
area; the Korean, Lin6oln,
Vietnam, FDR and Jefferson
Memorials; Fords Theater;
Mt. Vernon; Pentagon City;
and the National Cathedral.
They also enjoyed having din-
ner at the Hard Rock Cafe;
the U. S. Marine Corps
Sunset Parade; a boat cruise
and dance on the Potmxnac
River; and ended their trip
with a farewell All States
Dinner and Dance.
A highlight of the trip was
the National Youth Day rally,
in which former Nebraska
State Sen. Dave Landis por-
trayed U. S. Sen. George W.
Norris, a leading figure
behind the creation of the
Rural Electric Administration
and the Tennessee Valley
Authority. The students also
heard a speech by National
Rural Electric Cooperative
Association CEO Glenn
English and from keynote
speaker Mike Schlappi, a
four-time Paralympics
medalist in basketball.
Schlappi has been wheel-
chair-assisted since his mid-

dAbner discusses tobacco





prevention with Congress


WASHINGTON, D.C. -
Adrian Abner, a native of
Blountstown, and a recent
graduate from Florida A&M
University, was on Capitol
Hill in Washington, D.C.
Monday. Abner met with
national policymakers to
relate his experiences with
the Youth Activism Council of
the American Legacy
Foundation, the largest
national public health foun-
dation dedicated to prevent-
ing teens from smoking and
providing resources to smok-
ers who want to quit.
As part of the Youth
Activism Council (YAC),
Abner helps Legacy creatively
and effectively convey tobac-
co products' health risks to
young people as well as pro-
vide training and resources
to other organizations.
Abner first got involved in
tobacco prevention when he
was 12 years old and has
been a member of the YAC
since 2003. He has also
served as the Youth Board
Liaison for Legacy's Board of
Directors from Jan. 2005-
Oct. 2006.

ted to reaching youth and
organizations from all areas
and backgrounds. YAC mem-
bers represent a diverse
group that provides a youth
perspective - from several dif-
ferent ethnic backgrounds -
on Legacy's initiatives and
practical assistance in the
foundation's youth outreach
programs. They hone their
leadership, public speaking
and persuasive writing skills
and have the chance to work
with experts and leaders in


tobacco control and related
fields. During their one-to-
two year terms on the YAC,
members offer valuable sug-
gestions and perspectives to
ensure that the foundation's
tobacco use prevention and
cessation projects are rele-
vant to their peers and have
national reach and impact.
"Legacy is delighted to pro-
vide s. this educational and
civic experience to the youth
who volunteer their time and
expertise to the Youth
Activism Council," said
Cheryl Healton, Dr. P.H.,
Legacy's president and CEO.
"Many of the foundation's
programs focus on youth and,
we continue to benefit enor-
mously from the council
members' time and effort.
They also set an example for
their peers by. working so
hard and so creatively to help
us combat a life-threatening
addiction."
Each year, more than
400,000 Americans die from
tobacco-related diseases,
including heart disease, can-
cers, emphysema-and stroke.

of 18. Engaging young people
in the tobacco control issues
is essential to reaching youth
before they take up smoking,
a life-threatening habit.
The purpose of today's vis-
its was to educate members
of Congress about the impor-
tance of tobacco, prevention
and education among young
people and Legacy's grass-
roots efforts; the foundation
is prohibited from lobbying
under the terms of the 1998
Master Settlement Agreement
that led to the foundation's
creation.
The American Legacy
Foundation is dedicated to
building a world where young
people reject tobacco and
anyone can quit. Located in
Washington, D.C., the foun-
dation develops programs
that address the health
effects of tobacco use, espe-
cially among vulnerable pop-
ulations disproportionately
affected by the toll of tobacco,
through grants, technical
assistance and training, part-
nerships, youth activism,
and counter-marketing and
grassroots marketing cam-
paigns.
The foundation's programs
include truth@, a national,
youth smoking prevention
campaign that has been cited
as contributing to significant
declines in youth smoking;
EX�, an innovative public
health program designed to
speak to smokers in' their
own language and change the
way they approach quitting;
research initiatives exploring
the causes, consequences
and approaches to reducing
tobacco use; and a national-
ly-renowned program of out-
reach to priority populations.

Foundation was created as a

Arrow of Truth

by Rev. R.W. WVaterman


Don't Despise
Humble Beginnings
Zechariah 4:10
A certain older man had
seen the great magnificence
of Solomon's Temple. When
he saw the plans of
Zerubbabel for a new temple
for the returned Jewish
exiles, he exclaimed, "Does it
not seem to you like noth-
ing?" Haggai 2:3. It seemed
like nothing when compared
to the former building, now
destroyed.
If the old man -had ,been
promoting sour pessimism,
he could easily have had a lot
of support. "Many....who had
seen the former or first tem-
ple wept aloud when they
saw the foundation...being
laid" Ezra 3:12.. But the
older man had a dream from
God. The glory of the new
would exceed that of the for-
mer. "The desired of all
nations" would surely come
in God's time. God would
accomplish His purpose. His
long-range plans. Haggai 2.


A younger man one day
had a vision from God. "Who
despises the day of small
things?" was his call to
action. The Temple would
not be built by* human
resources alone, "but by my
Spirit, says the Lord," was
his challenge, Zechariah 4:6,
10.
The older man was Haggai,
the younger Zechariah.
Inspired by a dream and a
vision (Acts 2:17), they bridge
the generation gap, the man-
power 'gap, and- -the discour-
agement gap. Over their
bridge the marching feet of
God's people again moved.
forward in His purpose
through our Savior, Christ
the Lord.

erty. There are three options to run

and wire at an estimated cost of

run three phase wires at a cost bf
$5,000. The third is for. FPU to drop
a single line and run a one phase

sion on the police station topograph-
ic survey which includes FDOT dis-
cussions due to potential traffic pat-
terns. Preble-Rish will continue with

tect and secure Council approval.

ments. Preble-Rish will report back

between 3:30 PM and 4:30 PM on
May 30th so family, friends and col-
leagues could attend. The City will
supply the food as they have in the
past. Mayor Harpool felt the gift
should be more than $200 for some-
one retiring after thirty years. Mayor

the gift. There was no comment
from Council either for or against
increasing the amount of the gift.
Mayor Harpool then requested a

Manager replied that the speed
bump issue has been remedied to
both the citizen and the City's satis-


faction.
Mayor Harpool addressed
Council concerning a letter she sent
to Police Chief Kimbrel and Council
members regarding citizen's com-
plaints in the River Street area. The
Mayor thanked the Police Chief, for
his response to the concerns the cit-
izens had brought to her attention.
Police Chief Kimbrel was next on
the agenda. Police Chief Kimbrel
wanted to know what to do about the
old Police Department Building. The
building is an eye sore downtown.
Police Chief Kimbrel suggested
the City advertise to sell the building
and have the buyer move the build-
ing at their expense. The bid should
have no minimum. The bids should
be opened at the next Council meet-
ing. Councilman Tomlinson made
the motion to advertise the old Police
Department Building for sale with no
minimum bid and the person who
bids must move the building at their
cost. Councilwoman Boyd second-
ed the motion. The motion carried.
Police Chief Kimbrel told the
Council Brenda Engram Williams is'
having a family reunion in July 2007.
Ms. Williams would like to barricade
Cooper Street at River Street and
Cooper Park. Councilman Jackson
made a motion to barricade a portion
of Cooper Street for the family
reunion. Councilwoman Boyd sec-
onded the motion. The motion car-
ried. Police Chief Kimbrel suggested
the Council might want to set up a
permitting process to address future.
events of this nature. City Attorney
House suggested he meet with
Police Chief Kimbrel and City


Manager Thiemann to discuss possi-
ble alternatives to bring back to
Council concerning permitting
processes.
Police Chief Kimbrel informed the
Council a citizen on Boyd Street
would like to have a speed bump
installed. Chief Kimbrel has dis-
cussed the situation with the neigh-
bors who feel Boyd Street does not
currently have a traffic problem. The
Police Chief indicated that the Police
Department will survey this area the
same as Franklin Street.
Police Chief Kimbrel informed the
Council he had received a letter stat-
ing the grant for the sidewalk on
Pear Street up to Hwy 69 had been
approved. At this time the City has
not received any money for this proj-
ect. This is a program with the
Calhoun Traffic Safety Team that
meets once a month. The Calhoun
Safety Team works to make streets
safer. .
Mrs. B.J Bailey addressed the
Council in reference to the sidewalk
on Pear Street in front of her house.
Mrs. Bailey asked which side of the
street the sidewalk would be con-
structed since it might impact 730
feet of her property. The City
Manager indicated that the sidewalk
would have to be engineered once
funding was received.
Mayor Harpool discussed that at
the last meeting it was agreed that
each Council member would bring
two names of individuals agreeing to
serve on the local planning agency
(LPA). The following members of
council submitted the below individu-
als to sit on the local planning


agency.
* Mayor Harpool - Vanessa
Dawson, Geri Griffin; Councilwoman
Boyd -' Nathan, Goodman;
Councilman Shoemake - Ben Hall
A discussion ensued regarding
the LPA, its structure, and number of
members to put on the local planning
agency. Councilman Tomlinson
asked the City Manager to look into
how to assemble a volunteer LPA. It
was suggested that criteria be drawn
up to advertise for volunteers to sit
on the LPA. Mayor Harpool stated
that the Council had previously
agreed to bring back two (2) names
of .individuals that would agree to
serve on the LPA. She had met with
the two individuals and they both
agreed to serve.
. Mayor Harpool stated that she
had received a citizen complaint
about over presence of staff at the
aircraft standby. Chief Hall said they
had a staff of two stand by firefight-
ers. Fire Chief Hall stated that the
helicopter is allowed to land at the
old Billy Carr property and the hospi-
tal. The EMS decides where the
standby staff is to go. All expenses
paid are within the fire department
budget.
There was no further business
before Council. Councilman
Tomlinson made a motion to adjourn
the meeting. Councilwoman Boyd
seconded the motion. The motion
carried. The meeting adjourned at
8:00 P.M.
