TENSION

Angry the Council voted to readvertise the
Blountstown City Manager position rather
than hire the next candidate in line - a
black male - Mayor Marsha Harpool
(shown at right) has raised the race issue.


BLOUNTSTOWN COUNCIL



Debate over city




manager gets nasty


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A special meeting of the Blountstown City Council
turned nasty last Tuesday night during a debate over
whether or not to readvertise the city manager's position.
Before it was over, the question of whether race was a fac-
tor in the issue was raised by Mayor Marsha Harpool.
As reported in last week's issue of The County Record,
City Manager John Thiemann resigned less than three
months after accepting the job. He was set to leave July 3.
However, although he wasn't present at
the special meeting, it was noted he
had reportedly said he'd help the. City t( y
Council through the budget process IM lO(
until a replacement could be found.
Mayor Harpool recommended the
Council go back to their list of top the bestt
ranked applicants who applied when
Thiemann was awarded the job. The top
ranked person was reportedly passed. per,
up for the position due to "background
check reasons" and Thiemann was sec- -Councilman J(
ond in line. Harpool stated it made
sense to hire the number three candi-
date rather than go back through the
advertising and interview process again. She recommend-
ed hiring Lenwood Heron of New Brockton, AL, who serves
as president of Wenworth Corporation, a private consulting
firm. He also worked in Blountstown in the late 70s as a
planning program coordinator for the Apalachee Regional
Planning Council.
Councilman John Tomlinson, Jr. disagreed. "I think you


need to go out for applications again," he remarked.
'There's an opportunity to see who else is available at this
time."
Councilman Tony Shoemake concurred with Tomlinson.
"Some time has passed," he stated. "I'd like [Heron] to be in
the mix, but I'd also like to see who else is out there."
Mayor Harpool said she didn't understand the need to
readvertise. "I personally don't have time to sit up here. and
interview 12 candidates again," she said. "I'm just curious
as to why we feel we need to go through this again. Is there
a problem with Lenwood because he's a black male?"
"I have never had a problem with it,
but I'm tired of hearing it," Tomlinson
S responded, referring to racial com-
king for ments at a previous Council meeting.
Harpool replied, "I'm tired of this
*ua *li e scenario. When we get to management
luatifiedU positions with a black male, we have
this problem."
O J Tomlinson said race was not a fac-
, .on tor. "I'm just looking for the best qual-
ified person," he emphasized.
in Tomlinson, Jr Harpool noted, "We have that with
the next person in line."
After discussion, Council members
Tomlinson, Shoemake, and Janie
Boyd (Clifford Jackson was absent) voted to readvertise the
position, minus the requirement that the candidate have a
master's degree, as long as year for year experience is met.
The closing date is Tuesday, July 17, and a special.meet-
ing is set for that date at 6 p.m. at the Angle Street
Complex to review applications. Mayor Harpool went on
record opposed to the decision. "I vote 'no' and I don't vote,"

issues

BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Whether or not to consoli-
date schools is a passionate
issue in Calhoun County on
both sides of the debate.
That was evident at a work-
shop held Thursday in the
Blountstown High School
Media Center where School
Board members reviewed the
recommendations of the
Special Facilities Task Force.
- As reported in the June
13 issue of The County
Record, the majority of the
task force recommends com-
bining Altha and
Blountstown High Schools
into one countywide high
school, as well as merging .

Letter to the Editor,
In response to David
White's letter of June 20,
2007. We have been RVing
the past two years in city
parks, state parks and pri-
vate parks from coast to
coast. Most families are
responsible people leaving
the parks very clean. We have
been camping many years
with our children, now they
camp with their children.
An R.V. park at the
Settlement would be a great
asset to our 'community,
offering a clean family envi-
ronment for our local people,
as well as our tourists. I
know many people are for the
R.V. park at the Settlement.
Was the decision made for a
few or the majority?
I would like to see our
county commissioners revisit
this issue and consider ,the
many who want the R.V.
park.
Beulah Headings
To the Editor:
On June 14th I lost my
home and everything that we
had in it. This has been a
very devastating thing for me
and my family to go through.
If you have been through this
before you already know how
I feel day to day.
First, I -would like to say
thank God that no one got
hurt. I would like to say
thanks for the clothes you
gave, and for the caring
phone calls you made just to
see how we were doing.
Thanks for the clothes that
you gave for my three girls to
wear and thanks a million for
the heartwarming donation


you gave.
I would like to thank my
job, Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital, for all the support
you gave to me and my fam-
ily. A very, very special
thanks to my ADON Donna
Smith and pharmacist Phillip
Perkins who came out to my
home that morning to give
love and support to me. Also,
to my new administrator Ron
Gilliard and Assistant
Administrator Lynn Pitts who
called me with help on the
way for me. Thanks, guys, I
will never forget it!
Thanks to all the local
community churches for
your help. May God bless
you all. Thanks to our
friends and neighbors in
Grandridge who came and
helped do all they could for
us - your food, clothes, a cold
drink and donations.
A special thanks to Chris
Stone of Grandridge who was
there first trying to put the
fire out, but was unable to.
What a. wonderful neighbor
to have.
Also, a special thanks to
all the counties Masonic
Lodges for your heartfelt

BY LINDA WILLIAMS
Mossy Pond VFD & Auxiliary
Back from vacation,
enjoyed the time with my
children and grandchildren,
but have two complaints: the
first one is, my goodness the
grandchildren are almost
grown. And, two, they could-
n't possibly be close to leav-
ing home for college. My
daughter-in-law was com-
plaining' about empty nest
and I was complain about
getting old.
I understand the county
commissioner meeting for the
animal control was held a
week or so ago. In Mossy
Pond, we need some form of
animal control. The wild cats
invade our yards, kill the
birds and squirrels, and
carry germs. We cannot ride
our bikes or walk because
the dogs run in packs of four
or five and they do bite.
People drop off the dogs and


cats by the dozen out here,
where we either have to feed
them, shoot them or let them
starve. My neighbor can't
even let their baby kittens
outside at all without them
being hurt from the alpha
males.
I'm really surprised that
we don't have this, as it could
cost the county in the form of
a law suit in case someone
gets hurt bad. The Sheriffs
Department says to take care
of the problem the best way
we can. I would hate to kill
someone's pet, but if it's a pet
it wouldn't be allowed to run.
If anyone has any good ideas
how to take care of the prob-
lem without a lot of cost, call
the Sheriffs Department.
Well, summer is here.
Watch your elderly neighbors
and your children that they
don't get too warm. Glad to
be back - this really is heav-
en on earth.

BY SHERIFF DAVID TATUM
The Calhoun County
Sheriffs Office performed a
river cleanup effort on the
Chipola River on Monday,
June 25th, and continuing
on the following Wednesday
and Friday.
The work began at Johnny
Boy Landing and continued
to Lamb Eddy Landing. This
stretch of river approximately
eight miles is the most fre-
quently used portion of the
Chipola River and, therefore,
the most littered.
With the beginning of the
Independence Day holiday
week there will be an abun-
dance of people enjoying the
cool waters of the Chipola
River. I want to get the mes-
sage out to encourage people
to collect their trash in dis-
posable containers while they
are tubing or boating. The
stretch of river that we
worked was becoming very
unsightly from the volume of
cans and bottles on the river
bottom.
In the three day cleanup
effort, we collected more than
7.500 pounds of garbage
from the river bottom. The
majority of that came from a
short section between Willis
Bridge and Look and
Tremble.

It has been speculated by
informed persons that glass
in water such as this will
remain in that state for many
hundreds of years before
breaking down. The alu-
minum cans will last many
decades. Aside from the
trashing of one of Florida's
most beautiful rivers, the
glass represents an extreme
safety hazard to persons
wading and walking in the
shallow clear waters.
Receptacles for waste are
provided at all public boat
landings and, of course, the
option always exists to take
the trash back home with
you and dispose of it proper-
ly there. Just please don't
discard it into the river.

week's cleanup were Sheriff

Happy Birthday, Ken!!
Well on July 6, Ken Speights
II will be 4. And as bad as you
are, just like you, I'll have 20
more. I guess you are not
bad; Daddy just lets you get
away with whatever. But
know that you can depend
on Daddy to be your sunshine
when you feel like stormy
weather.
I remember bringing you
home from the hospital and
checking every hour to make
sure you were breathing.
Driving around in the wee-
wee hours to help you fall
asleep when you were
teething. And now listening
as you speak, Spanish, while
watching Go Diego Go. And
watching you run through the
house breaking things with
your dog, Rambo.
Well know that Daddy
loves you very much and with
you I'm always happy. But
remember to close your ears
and stay away from
Columbus Jackson, aka Big
Daddy.
Love, Daddy

Local farmers sought




for new loan program


FROM THE CALHOUN COUNTY
EXTENSION SERVICE
Whole Foods Market, the
leading organic and natural
foods supermarket, is seek-
ing local farmers and other
food producers who are inter-
ested in participating in its
new Local Producer Loan
Program. As part of a compa-
ny-wide initiative supporting
local agricultural producers
and food artisans, the com-


pany plans to provide up to
$10 million annually in low-
interest loans to small pro-
ducers in the U.S.
At five to nine percent, the
interest rates currently
offered through Whole Foods
Market's pilot program to
small agricultural producers.
can be extremely attractive.
The program has other
attributes geared to small
producers: loan application
paperwork is minimized;


there are no penalties for
early repayment; and loan
terms may be from a few
months to ten years.
The Local Producer Loan
Program is part of Whole
Foods Market's renewed com-
mitment to local agriculture.
This includes hosting farm-
ers markets at' stand-alone
stores, refocusing in-store
marketing to highlight local-
ly-produced products, and
hiring regional staff focused
specifically on sourcing local
products.
"It is Whole Foods
Market's intention to help
finance local food production
all over the United States,"
said John Mackey, co-
founder and CEO of Whole
Foods Market. "We are going
to 'walk our talk' with finan-
cial support for local, small-
scale agriculture. We believe
this financial assistance of
up to $10 million per year
can make a very significant
difference *in helping local
food production grow and
flourish across the United
States."
Producers throughout the
U.S. are invited to participate
in the program. Those inter-
ested can find more informa-
tion and a loan application at

TALLAHASSEE -- Florida
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson today
announced that beginning
July 30 the department's
Division of Forestry will re-
offer the Southern Pine
Beetle Prevention Cost-Share
Program to eligible non-
industrial private forest
landowners.
The goal of the program is
to minimize southern pine
beetle damage in Florida by
helping forest landowners
reduce the susceptibility of
their pine stands to this
destructive insect pest.
Periodic southern pine beetle
outbreaks in Florida have
resulted in millions of cubic
feet of pine timber killed on
thousands of acres. Forest
management practices, such
as thinning and prescribed
burning, can improve the
health of pine stands and
decrease the likelihood of
developing southern pine
beetle infestations.
The program offers up to
50 percent cost reimburse-
mentf" f6r 'pre-commercial
thinning and prescribed
burning treatments, and a
$50 per acre incentive pay-
ment for landowners who
conduct a first pulpwood
thinning. The program is
limited to 44 northern
Florida counties located

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
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 under-
went surgery and Felisia was
placed in intensive care. She
passed away a week later.


within the range of the south-
ern pine beetle. Qualified
landowners may apply for
one approved practice per
state fiscal year. The mini-
mum tract size requirement
is 10 acres and funding
requests may not exceed
$10,000.
For an application and
more information on program
requirements and proce-
dures, landowners can visit
their local Division of
Forestry office. Contact
information for the county
forester office is available at
http://www.fl-dof.com.
Applications cannot be sub-
mitted before July 30, 2007,
and will be evaluated on a
first-received, first-served
basis. The program is sup-
ported through temporary
grants from the USDA Forest

Iraqi tree campaign


BY LOGAN BARBEE
The Iraqi Tree Planting
Campaign was a project
started back in Feb. in Babil
Providence, just south of
Baghdad. This was one of
several hundreds of projects
and programs that the
American Forces are con-
ducting here in Iraq and one
I want to share with everyone
back home.
Having a tree planting pro-
gram in the middle of a con-
flict, such as what we are in,
might seem silly to many, but
it is one of many efforts to
gain respect, to show courte-
sies, to influence the locals.
This project was beneficial on
many levels and opened the
door for other governmental
and local engagements.
We actually started the
project much earlier but
kicked it off on the 21st of
March with a tree planting
ceremony at the Regional
American Embassy in Al
Hillah, within sight of one of
the old Seven Wonders of the
World, the Hanging Gardens
of Babylon. We invited the
Iraqi Provincial Council
Agricultural Committee, the
Environmental Director, and
several other influential busi-
nessmen and governmental
officials, along with many of
our soldiers. They are repre-
sentative of all our children,
they are great Americans. I.
am always honored and
amazed at their capacity to
work, face danger, and to give
of their selves. What a bless-
ing!
All the trees we planted
were done with donations
from our soldiers, American
advisors and contractors. We
raised over $2800 from dona-
tions of $5 to $100 and were
able to plant over. 4500 trees.
The Date Palm tree is the
Iraqi National tree, the pride


Former Calhoun County Extension Director Logan Barbee,
who is currently serving in Iraq as a senior advisor on the
Provincial Reconstruction Team, recently organized a tree
planting program there. He is pictured above (left) with sever-
al Iraqi government officials as they.plant a tree in a ceremo-
ny at the Regional American Embassy in Al Hillah


of Iraq, arid in the old days
was displayed on their flag.
We planted Date Palm,
Eucalyptus, evergreens, fruit
and olive trees and, because
of our efforts, the Local
Provincial Council con-
tributed and planted over
20,000 more trees through-
out the Babil Providence.
This also opened the doors to
many other opportunities
that have proven to be bene-
ficial in saving lives.
.With this program for the


donors, we gave certificates
to those persons that donat-
ed to recognize people, fami-
ly, friends, and organizations,
back home and to plant trees
in their behalf. This was all
done to honor the struggles
and sacrifices of Iraqis and
Americans, to bring peace,
prosperity and freedom to
this land. So after the
Americans are gone from this
land, may this living legacy
bare fruit for many genera-
tions.


Service and will be offered
only as long as funding is
available.

"The Speedway is a venue that is

where everyone in motorsports wants
to claim a victory," said Speedway
President Robin Braig. The enormous
480-acre motorsports complex boasts
the most diverse schedule of racing on
the globe -- earning it the title of "World Center of
Racing." Even before NASCAR was founded, racers
would flock to Daytona's hard-packed sand beaches
to go head-to-head against each other while trying to
avoid the incoming tide. Jeff Gordon has won three
Pepsi 400's over the last decade, making him the
most successful driver here at night.

Denny Hamlin
'b' Born: Nov. 18, 1980
SSponsor: FedEx Kinko's
Crew Chief: Charles Barraclough
: Car: Chevrolet
Biography:
During the 2004 season, Denny Hamlin caught
the eye of Joe Gibbs Racing with a handful of
Craftsman Truck Series races while competing
full time in Late Models for Dean Motorsports.
Hamlin made his NASCAR Busch Series debut at
Darlington, dubbed NASCAR's "Toughest Track
to Tame". After starting in 27th place, Hamlin
worked his way towards an 8th place finish, as
well as a future at Joe Gibbs Racing. In 2005,
Hamlin replaced Mike Bliss in the #20 Rockwell
Automation Chevrolet. He made his Cup debut at
Kansas Speedway in 2005 after struggling driver
Jason Leffler was released. He finished the Cup
season with three Top 10 finishes in seven starts
and one pole at Phoenix International Raceway
before being named driver of the #11 FedEx
Chevrolet for the 2006 Nextel Cup season. In
2006, Hamlin ran his first full season in the
NASCAR Nextel Cup Series. Hamlin drove dou-
ble duty and won Rookie of the Year in the Nextel
Cup while also driving the full season for Joe
Gibbs Racing in the Busch Series.


There is nothing keeping Hendrick Motorsports from buying "
the No. 8 from Dale Eamhardt Inc. as long as NASCAR
approves the transfer of the number. While NASCAR owns
all numbers and issues them to organizations on an annual '
basis, teams sell numbers all the time. NASCAR spokesman
Ramsey Poston said it is unlikely the goveming body would
prevent such a transfer, adding the financial terms are not a concern. Dale Eamhardt
Jr. made it clear when announcing a five-year deal to begin driving for Hendrick
Motorsports in 2008 that he would like to keep the No. 8 that has been his trademark.

Denny Hamlin won his first NASCAR race of the season
on Sunday at New Hampshire International Speedway
in Loudon. During a late pit stop, Denny gambled by tak-
ing on two tires instead of four. He went on to beat Jeff
Gordon by 0.068 of a second. "I was trying not to make
a mistake on those final laps," Hamlin told reporters.
"We finally got a win," It was Hamlin's third career Cup
victory and first since last July at Pocono Raceway in
Long Pond, Pa. Gordon finished second, followed by
Truex and Earnhardt. The first eight finishers drove
Chevrolets. Both Gordon and teammate Jimmie
Johnson have four wins this season.

BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor

The Florida Department of
Education handed out report
cards to schools across the
state last week. Here in
Calhoun County, the local
school district had three A's,
one C and one D.
Altha Public School
improved from a "B" to an
"A", as did Blountstown
Elementary School. Carr
Elementary and Middle
School maintained their "A"
grade from last year. The only
two schools to drop were
Blountstown Middle School -
from an "A" to a "C" - and
Blountstown High School -
from a "C" to a "D".
"We are very proud to have
60 percent of our schools in
Calhoun. County "A" schools,"
says Superintendent Mary'
Sue Neves. "I want to con-
gratulate our students,
teachers, parents, and
administrators for their hard
work and commitment to
education. Even though we
had one "C" and "D" school,
Calhoun County School
District continues to be an
"A" district."
Superintendent Neves
says the declining grade at
BMS was largely due to facul-
ty issues at the school. 'This
school year, Blountstown
Middle School had 60 percent
turn over in the
English/reading faculty and
this was a big hit in their lan-
guage arts department," she
points out.
Over. at BHS, the points
were there, but the school
was penalized in one area.
"Blountstown High School
was two points from a "B"
grade," Neves reports. 'The
school earned enough points
to be a "C" school, but the
grade was lowered due to the
lowest quartile not showing
50 percent or better improve-
ment in reading. At least half
of the lowest scoring 25 per-
cent of students must make

gains in both reading and
math or a school's overall
grade is lowered by one letter
grade."
Superintendent Neves
says strategies are being
developed to ensure both
BMS and BHS earn top
marks next school year.
"Several personnel changes
have been made and I have
confidence that our teachers,
students, and administrators
will take pride and rise to
meet the challenges the state
has set. We will see improve-
ments next year in
Blountstown Middle and
Blountstown High Schools.
Administrators and teachers
will analyze their student
data and identify areas of
concern and, together, they
will develop a plan to improve


student achievement and
move forward. Calhoun
County School District has a
commitment to excellence
and we take great strides to
move all our schools to the
top."
In Liberty County, Hosford
Elementary and Junior High
earned the district's only "A",
improving from a "B" the pre-
vious year. Liberty County
High School dropped from a
"B" to a "C", as did W.R. Tolar
K-8 School.

FERNANDINA BEACH,
Fla.-Blountstown High
School teacher Ron Mears
went for a three-day walk in
the woods at the 2007
Florida Forestry Teachers'
Tour in Fernandina Beach
June 19-22. While visiting a
research forest, a privately-
owned tree farm, a paper
mill, a saw mill and a chemi-
cal lab that manufactures
fragrances from tree by-prod-
ucts, Mears and 43 other
teachers from across the
state learned firsthand the
value of forestry in 'Florida.
The Florida Forestry
Teachers' Tour showed the
educators that the key to
responsible forestry is sus-
tainability. They saw all
aspects forestry practices,
from the planting and grow-
ing processes, to the mills
and finally to the end prod-
ucts. Learning that over
5,000 products are made
from trees, the teachers saw
how chemical by-products
from the paper-making
process are used in products
like soap, fabrics and even
food. They learned how the
industry works hard to see
that no part of a tree goes to
waste.
"I'll never look at a tree the
way I used to," commented
Helene Yaller, a middle
school science teacher from
Bradenton.
The Florida Forestry
Teachers' Tour is sponsored
by the Florida Forestry
Association and the Florida
Division of Forestry. It is an
annual event designed to give
teachers an insider's view on
forestry so they can share the
knowledge with their stu-
dents. For more information,

est.org.

Legal Notice

JOINT FEDERAL, STATE, LOCAL,
PUBLIC NOTICE

The Federal Emergency Management
Agency and Florida Division of Emergency
Management have received the following
application for Federal grant funding. Final
notice is hereby given of the Federal
Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA)
consideration to provide funding in the form
of Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. Funds
will be provided in accordance with Section
404 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief
and Emergency Assistance Act, Public Law
93-288, as amended.

Under the National Environmental Policy
Act (NEPA), federal actions must be reviewed
and evaluated for feasible alternatives and
for social, economic, historic, environmen-
tal, legal, and safety considerations. Under
Executive Order (EO) 11990 FEMA is
required to consider alternatives to and to
provide public notice of any proposed
actions in or affecting floodplains or wet-
lands. EO 12898 also requires FEMA to pro-
vide the opportunity for public participation
in the planning process and to consider
potential impacts to minority or low-income
populations.

Funding for the proposed project will be
conditional upon all applicable federal, trib-
al, state and local laws, regulations, flood-
plain standards., permit requirements and
conditions.

Applicant:
Calhoun County Emergency Management
20859 Central Avenue East, Room G-40
Bloudntstown. Florida 32424

Project Title:' ,
FEMA-1595-32-R-FL

Location of Proposed Work:.
Chipola Road from S.R. 20 to S.R. 71.


Proposed Work and Purpose:
Phase I will consist of a study conducted to
determine modifications needed to improve
'and upgrade the existing drainage system.
The completed construction project will
minimize recurring flooding and reduce
repetitive flood loss to properties.

Project Alternatives:
The alternatives to the project that have
been considered are 1) the no action alter-
native and 2) take the water along the south
side of South Street then turn it South
across private property to get to the same
positive discharge point under S.R. 71. This
route will be fighting grade, which would
require deeper cuts along with de-watering.
It would require extensive right of way
acquisitions, clearing and grubbing as well
as wetland impacts, which would be contin-
gent on permitting. This cost could exceed
$3,000,000. 3) Installation of underground
storm water drainage system on Chipola
Road County right of way from S.R. 20 to
S.R. 71 storm water outlet with an approxi-
mate cost of $800,000. Alternative 1) is not
viable due to repetitive flooding is not allevi-
ated and the needs of the community would
not be served; and Alternative 2) is cost pro-
hibitive, and therefore not practical; and
Alternative 3) meets cost benefit and there-
fore is fundable.

Comment Period:
Comments are solicited from the public;
local, state or federal agencies, and other
interested parties in order to consider and
evaluate the impacts of the proposed proj-
ect. The comments should be made in writ-
ing and addressed to the Florida Division of
Emergency Management, Bureau of
Recovery and Mitigation, 2555 Shumard
Oak Blvd., Tallahassee, FL 32399-2100.
These are due within 30 days of this notice
(8/03/07). The State will forward comments
to applicable regulatory agencies as needed.
Interested persons may submit comments,
obtain more detailed information about the
proposed action, or request a copy of the
findings by contacting:

Applicant:
Calhoun County Board of Commissioners
20859 Central Avenue East, Room G-40
Blountstown. Florida 32424

Project Title:
FEMA-1545-103-R-FL

Location of Proposed Work:
Tupelo Avenue Drain

Proposed Work and Purpose:
Phase 1 includes performing the necessary
engineering design and permitting and spec-
ifications of the project. Phase 2 will consist
of installing drainpipes between the road
and the existing box culvert to allow flood-
waters to run through the culverts and flow
back to the south away from the 250 to 300
homes in the neighborhood North of Tupelo
Avenue. This will reduce the damages and
losses from future flooding events.

Project Alternatives:
The alternatives to the project that have
been considered are 1) the no action alter-,
native; and 2) would be to acquire and relo-
cate 250 residential properties, 5 churches,
and Blountstown Middle School In the area.
This action would cost approximately
$36,000,000: and 3) Install four 59 x 81
overflow pipes with an approximate cost of
$100,000. Alternative 1) is not a viable
option because it does not alleviate repeti-
tive flooding and the needs of the communi-
ty would not be served; and Alternative 2) is
cost prohibitive, -and therefore not practical;
and Alternative 3) meets cost benefit and
therefore is fundable.

Comment Period:

i GUARANTEED!



6 TRUTHS ABOUT CARMART

1.) Our preowned vehicles come from the same places as

the more expensive Dealers. Ours sell for less because

we are better buyers and have less overhead...period!

2.) New Car Dealers buy vehicles from us!

3.) Our vehicles are "Certified Pre-.Owned" meaning they

are Fully Serviced and inspected!

4.) We offer a CARFAX on our vehicles proving their

history and condition!

5.) We show you the "Blue Book" value on every vehicle up

front and always sell for less than Blue Book.

6.) We DO NOT make a profit on Finance and Insurance

like every other Dealer does! We work hard to find you the

lowest possible payment.

School Board members contemplate the recommendations of the School Facilities Task Force.


School Board workshop-


Blountstown and Carr middle
schools and placing them at
the existing BHS facility. The
old BMS would be converted
to school district special pro-
grams offices and the adult
school. Renovations would be
made at both Altha K-8 and
Carr Elementary. In later
phases, the majority propos-
es building a new BES and a
new Carr Elementary.
The minority of the task
force is opposed to consoli-
dating the high. schools and
suggests building a new TMH
classroom , facility at
Blountstown High School, a
new cafetorium and class-
room wing at Carr School,
and a new wing for 6th grade
and the culinary program at
Altha School. In future phas-
es, the minority recommend.
building a K-8 school in
Blountstown, as well as new
facilities at Altha and Carr.
In both reports, task force
members recommend levying
the additional two tax mills
necessary to receive the
state's special facilities fund-
ing. "Whether we're going to
renovate, build, or whatever,
we're going to have to levy,"
Superintendent Mary Sue
Neves pointed out.
School Board member
Danny Hassig said it was
clear to him, the school dis-
trict would get the most bang
for the buck going with the
majority recommendation
from the task force. "I'm just
trying to be a realist and look
at it from a business stand-
point and what's best for our
children. They have to be
able to compete with every
country."
Board Member Kelly King
said she didn't see combining
high schools as the solution.
"I agree we can give our kids


better schools, but I don't
think we, have to consolidate
to do it," she said.
Task force member C.L.
Capps said he looked at the
matter from a business per-
spective. "We went to all
these schools. At Carr, the
floor is falling in," he
remarked. "We sat down and
moneywise figured what is
best dollar for dollar for run-
ning the schools. If you put
money into a new school sys-
tem, 20 years from now,
you'll still have a new school.
If you put $35 million into an
old system, 20 years later, it's
still old."
Minnie Johnson of Kinard
agreed. "Not everything
offered to children in
Blountstown is offered to
children in Altha and we feel
combining two high schools
would help every student be
prepared to go to college," she'
commented.
Board member Grant
Williams said the task force
came back with his belief
from the start: consolidation


makes sense. Board member
Tim Smith said he wanted to
see more facts and figures on
cost savings. Board member
Willie Brown said he wanted
the best for our students. "At
some point, we've got to move
past doing things to be re-
elected and do what we were
elected to do," Brown stated.
Hassig said he had heard
of School Board members
being threatened during the
15 months they studied the
issue before he was elected.
"I'm not going to be intimidat-
ed or threatened," he
remarked. "If that happens,
the first thing I'm going to do
is go to the newspaper and
put their name out there and
the second thing I'm going to
do is go to law enforcement
and file it there. I'm going to
ask my fellow board members
to do the same. If you don't,
have 'moral courage, you
don't have anything."
The next workshop on the
matter is set for Monday,
July 23, at 3 p.m. at the BHS
Media Center.
