BY KELLI PEACOCK

A former employee for
the City of Blountstown
has filed a complaint with
the Florida Commission
on Human Relations
(FCHR),, alleging employ-
ment discrimination.
City officials received a
"Notice of Filing of
Complaint of
Discrimination" from
FCHR June 19. The com-
plaint was filed by
Nathaniel Davis, Sr., who
was reportedly employed
with the City in 1985,
then terminated April 17,

complaint, Davis main-
tains he was terminated

TRAFFIC ACCIDENT


Panama



City man






in crash
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A single vehicle crash on SR 20
West Friday morning left a Bay
County man injured.
According to the Florida Highway
Patrol, Lewis Kelso III, 29, was a pas-
senger in a 2004 Chevrolet van
owned by Buffalo Rock Pepsi. The
driver, Desmond White, 19, also of
Panama City, told ,authorities they
were traveling east on SR 20 when
the car in front of them began slow-
ing down as if to stop. White said he
was unable to stop and took evasive
action, driving onto the south shoiul-
der of the road. As the van reentered
the highway, it struck a road sign,
rotated across the road, then ended
up on the north shoulder where the
passenger side struck an oak tree.
The van came to final rest on it's side,
just north of the old DOT building.
White walked away from the crash
with a few cuts, but Kelso was'
trapped inside, hanging upside down
with his ankles pinned beneath the
dash and passenger door.
Firefighters from West Side and
Blountstown fire departments spent
over half an hour working to free
him, with assistance from the
Calhoun County Sheriffs Office,
Blountstown Police Department, and
Emergystat Ambulance. An emer-
gency helicopter landed in the middle
of SR 20 and flew Kelso to

liffJacson resigns


City election Sept 4


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Two months before the City's fall
election, a Blountstown City
Councilman has resigned.
Clifford Jackson submitted his
letter of resignation to Mayor
Marsha Harpool July 2, explaining
he would no longer be able to serve
due to upcoming surgery arid his
relocation to Orlando.
"I cannot say enough wonderful
things about the City of
Blountstown, about all the people
I've encountered in my years of serv-
ice with the city, and especially
about the City Council itself," he
remarks in his letter.
With his resignation effective
Monday, Mayor Harpool and the
remaining Council members were
expected to discuss how to handle
the vacancy at their regular meeting
on Tuesday (details unavailable at
press time). Jackson's position was
already set to be on the ballot for the
September 4 election, however, who-


ever wins the race would typically
not be sworn in until January.
Another possibility expected to be
discussed was whether or not to
appoint someone to fill Jackson's
seat until January. The second
highest vote getter when Jackson
ran in the last election was Phillip
Hill, Jr.
Also on the ballot is the seat cur-
rently held by Councilwoman Janie
Boyd. No word yet on whether she
will be seeking re-election.
Calhoun County Supervisor of
Elections Margie Laramore says city
voters will have the opportunity to
go to the polls a couple weeks before
Election Day. "We've always had
early voting for primary elections,
but never for just a city election,"
she remarks. Early voting will begin
August 20 in .the Elections Office at
the courthouse. When Election Day
rolls around on Sept. 4, all regis-
tered city voters will cast their bal-
lots at the Blountstown Public

The County Record, JULY 11,2007, Page 2


Dear Editor,
I am writing this letter as a
proud parent of a Calhoun
County Dixie Youth AA All-
Star. We have just returned
from the State Tournament
in East Lakeland, and
although our team fell short
of capturing the title, their
sacrifice, hard work and ded-
ication should not go unrec-
ognized.
This group of 7-8 year old
boys, along with their coach-
es, spent week on end prac-
ticing in the grueling heat, 3-
4 nights a week, 3+ hours
each practice. Not once did
they complain. Each family
gave up their "normal life"
and at times it felt as though
we lived at Sam Atkins Park.
We let laundry pile up for
days and the majority of
evening meals came from
drive-thru windows at local
fast food restaurants. These
sacrifices were made for our
support of the team.
Watching these boys bond
together, fine-tune their skills
and come out as a disci-
plined, polished baseball
team made everything worth
it.
This is the second consec-
utive year that the
Blountstown AA team has
gone undefeated in district
play and captured the
District 5 Championship


title. We are fortunate to
have a group of superb ath-
letes with positive attitudes.
If this group is any indication
of the future, Calhoun
County's athletic programs
are going to be top-notch for
many years to come.
Attitude and performance
reflect leadership, and our
team was lead by three dedi-
cated coaches, Emory Horne,
Terry Blair and Jason Weiler.
They spent countless hours
of their time making our sea-
son a success. Each of these
coaches showed total dedica-
tion and provided the perfect
combination of discipline,
tough love and hard work
that was instrumental in
making our team's season
successful.
To all of the business and
individuals in our community
who donated money or pur-
chased a Boston Butt during
our fundraising effort, thank
you. Every donation helped
to reduce the financial bur-
den for twelve families to
travel to East Lakeland. We
are truly blessed to live in
such a tight-knit, supportive
community.
Thank You,
Meagan Roulhac

Cliff Leonard had a heart

discovered his talent it gave
him the insight to realize he
had the interest and desire to
become an artist. Since that

and the honesty and work

was his major influence dur-
ing these years along with
two grammar school teach-
ers, Miss Golden and Mr.
Hanna, who were always pos-
itive and encouraging.
Leonard said, "I always felt
I was a triangle and my
teachers tried as they might
to put me in a square or cir-
cular hole. Try as they might,
I would never stay put in a
hole that did not fit. I always
popped out and usually was
in trouble." When asked who
or what got him interested in
art, he said, "I remember my
Mom dabbled in drawing and
painting as did one of our
neighbors. I feel sure my
interest was piqued at that
early age. There was really
no outlet or even a place to
explore art in Blountstown
during that time, at least for
boys. When I looked at my
Mother' scrapbook I saw page
after page where I had col-
ored, decorated, or drew pic-
tures. Of course, none of it
was being displayed any
place other than Mom's
refrigerator door; where it
belonged by the way.
Whenever I had a chance to
watch someone whittle,
carve, or paint I was always
fascinated - it was magic."

Firefighter rescues baby woodpeckers
Westside volunteer firefighter Tony Money has been getting called out to blazes and other disasters for
years. When he was paged to a home where a tree had fallen on a cable Monday, he found himself in
an unusual rescue effort to save two baby woodpeckers."We were cutting a tree up and I saw them
underneath it," he tells The County Record with the two birds nestled in a thick paper wrapping. Tony and
his wife, Tori (pictured above), transported the tiny birds to Betsy Knight of the Big Bend Wildlife Sanctuary.

Southern Pine Beetle Program

to begin accepting applications


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson recently announced
that beginning July 30, 2007,
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% cost reimbursement for
pre-commercial thinning and
prescribed burning treat-
ments, and a $50 per acre


incentive payment for
landowners who conduct a
first pulpwood thinning. The
program is limited to 44
northern Florida counties
located within the range of
the southern pine beetle.
Qualified landowners may
apply for one approved prac-
tice per state fiscal year. The
minimum tract size require-
ment 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 at 17720 NW
Magnolia Church Road,
Altha, Fl. Contact informa-
tion for the County Forester
office is available at
http://www.fl-dof.com/, or
call at 850 674-8073.

Applications cannot be
submitted before July 30 and
will be evaluated on a first-
received, first-served basis.
The program is supported
through temporary grants
from the USDA Forest Service
and will be offered only as
long as funding is available.

There's no simpler way to
say it: Calhoun County's vol-

When a 911 alert came out
Friday morning advising a
van had overturned on Hwy.
20 just west of the old DOT
building, rescue workers
from both Westside and
Blountstown fire depart-
ments sprung into action. A
Panama, City man was
entrapped in the vehicle,
hanging upside down, strung.
up by his ankles.
Armed with the 'Jaws of
Life,' firefighters, dressed in
heavy gear, worked in
extreme heat to cut the van
open and rescue the injured


man. One team on the
ground, another on top of the
vehicle.
Even as the saw cut into
metal, the victim's moans
could be heard. "Just hang in
there," Blountstown Fire
Chief Ben Hall assured him:
"We're going to get you out."
Like a well oiled machine,
the men of these two depart-
ments worked in sync for an
estimated 30 minutes until
the man could be pulled from
the wreckage and turned over
to paramedics. There was a
teacher, a boat builder, a
mechanic. Men from all
walks of. life who have made
themselves available to be

E Jamie McMurray
Born: June 3,.1976
Sponsor: FedEx Kinko's
Crew Chief: Larry Carter
Car: Ford
Biography:
In 1999, McMurray made 4 starts in the Craftsman
Truck series. In 2000, he ran 15 Craftsman Truck
races and posted 1 top-five and 4 top-ten finishes.
In 2001 and 2002, he competed full-time in the
NASCAR Busch Series, driving the #27 Williams
Travel Centers Chevrolet Monte Carlo for Brewco
Motorsports. The latter year turned out better for
McMurray, as he won two races and finished sixth
in the overall points standings. In 2002, in just his
second career NASCAR Winston Cup start, Jamie
McMurray won the UAW-GM Quality 500 at Lowe's
Motor Speedway in Charlotte, NC, setting the
record for the fastest first time winner in NASCAR
history. In 2004, McMurray finished 11th in the
points standings and missed the Chase for the Cup
by 15 points. McMurray left the #42 team after the
2005 season to drive the #26 Ford for Roush
Fenway Racing. His contract with Roush Fenway
Racing is one of the richest in NASCAR history with
a guaranteed salary of $20 million dollars per year
plus bonuses. Last year, McMurray's best finish
was at Dover where he finished 2nd.


NASCAR's top series, the Nextel Cup, will become the . S
Sprint Cup next year, officials announced on Saturday. .? *
The name change, NASCAR's second in five years, had
been widely expected after Sprint's acquisition of Nextel
for more than $35 billion in 2005 led to the formation of
Sprint Nextel Corp. Nextel Communications had signed
a 10-year sponsorship agreement in 2003 at a reported value of $750 million,
for the premier racing circuit of NASCAR. NASCAR's previous lead sponsorship
agreement lasted 33 years with tobacco company R.J. Reynolds.

races. At the finish line, there was only 0.005 seconds sep-
arating the duo in the 400-mile race. After the race
McMurray said, "Carl helped me win the race. He shoved

pushed me to the win." Jack Roush, the winning car owner,
had four of his drivers finish in the top eight. Kurt Busch fin-
ished third, while Carl Edwards and championship leader
Jeff Gordon were fourth and fifth respectively. Tony
Stewart, looking for his third straight win, finished 38th.

Using the pen name 'Opunaya'...



Larkins has book published


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
The quest to sleep late,
make tons of money, and
work in his pjs has led a
Bristol man to embark on a
career as a writer.
Mitch Larkins, 21, recent-
ly authored his first book,
The Untold Tales of
Exodia. .. The War of the
Suprememage.
"It's fantasy," says the
2004 graduate of Liberty
County High School. "I'd
describe it like a cheap
knockoff of Lord of the Rings.
It's a lot shorter. There's a
group of main characters -
one is a female mage which is
like a magic wizard or sorcer-
ess. We have a swordsman in
there. Then we have a demon
and we have a half-demon, a
female." Rounding out the
cast of characters is a dwarf,
an elf, and a monk. As the
book's promo reads, "It has
been two hundred years
since the most powerful sor-
cerer in history, the
Suprememage, has tried to
destroy the Council of Mages
and take over the world. Now,
a young woman mage
becomes the only hope to


MITCH LARKINS


stop war from coming to
Exodia. But, with her allies
constantly at ,each other's
throat, can they save Exodia
before they kill each other?"
Around the age of 17,
Larkins began writing short
stories. As a member of the
Apalachicola Creek tribe, he
was given a fitting Indian
name: Opunaya. "Mary
Blount gave it to me. It
means storyteller," Mitch
explains, noting that he has
taken it on as his pen name.


His decision to become an
author was an easy one. "I
thought, What could I do to
make money and not require
me to leave the house and not
put much effort into it?"
He said his first book was
a cinch because it required
absolutely no research since
it was all fantasy. "I made it
up as I went along. I had read
a lot of fantasy novels and
what I'm reading at the time
is what I usually write
about," says Mitch, adding
with a grin, "I have to sponge
off the brilliance of others."


By day, Mitch works as a
records coordinator at the
Apalachicola Forest Youth
Camp. At least one of his co-
workers was surprised to
learn he had authored a
book. "Doris Holliday was
shocked and said, 'You can
read?!' I told her I can read,
write, and sometimes draw."
Mitch is looking forward to
the day when he won't have
to set an alarm to be on time
for a regular job. "I could
wake up at the crack of
noon," he says with a smile.
The Untold Tales of Exodia
took about half a year to
write. "If we cut out all the
time with me just goofing off,
working, and sleeping,"
Mitch remarks. After penning
the novel, he sought out pub-
lishers and found one willing
to take a chance on a new
author. "They paid me a
whole dollar, then I get paid
royalties."
But if things go Mitch's
way, his paychecks will keep
getting larger as he gains a
fan base and puts more of his
stories in the hands of read-
ers. "For this series, I have a
.sequel planned and a pre-

discuss the matter with
Rivera. However, she was
reportedly in Martin 'County
and unable to attend.
"The dismissal of Mr.
Odum was without notice to
the Board and also unexpect-
ed," Commission Chairman
Truman Grant stated in a let-
ter to Rivera. He asked her to
allow Odum to have his
annual leave extended and
lift the termination until she
could meet with the
Commission about the issue.
In a phone reply to Clerk of
Court Ruth Attaway, Rivera
denied that request.
"We had asked her to
extend his leave and she said
she didn't want to do that at


this point and she would talk
to us further at a later date,"
Attaway tells The County
Record, adding that she
anticipates that meeting to be
held within two or three
weeks.
Attaway points out,
"[Odum] is a full-fledged,
select exempt, state employ-
ee. He's not a county employ-
ee. But, out of 'courtesy, in
the past it's been a policy
that [DOH] would bring
applications for the health
department administrator
before the board. They would
fine tune it to two or three
and see what the preference
would be. But as far as hir-
ing, the board does not hire."
