Mayor


refuses


to sign


checks
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Tensions continue to
rise at City Hall as
Blountstown Mayor
Marsha Harpool
announced this week she
will no longer sign any
City checks.
Harpool contacted The
County Record Friday to
advise she stopped by
City Hall and seized her
signature stamp used by
staff for check -signing.
'The Council is beginning
to make decisions that
have financial ramifica-
tions I just can't sup-
port," Harpool stated.
At last week's meeting,
she opposed hiring for-
mer finance director Kim
Tanner on an as-needed
basis to train Traci Hall,
who replaced 'her in the
position; during the
budget process. The
Council approved the
measure.

Clarks.ie woman





sharing her talent


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A Clarksville woman is using her
talents as a wood scroller to pay
tribute to soldiers who have made
the ultimate sacrifice.
From her cozy studio tucked
away in the woods on the west side
of Calhoun County, Diane Hall finds
her wood scroll work a rejuvenating
way to spend her free moments. She
and her husband, Tony, are the par-
ents of Matthew, . Brandon, and
Tiffany, in addition to six horses,
two dogs and seveh cats they are
raising. "I've been doing wood scroll-
ing a couple years and I really enjoy
it," she says. "It's an escape from
the children and the horses. I just
kind of hide out here."
Diane's hobby is slowly, but
surely turning into a cottage indus-


try as she has developed a website
and is planning to have her first
booth at the Goat Day festival in
October. Her designs. include every-
thing from portraits of people and
pets to wind chimes and puzzles. "I
also like to do personalized work,"
says Diane. "The music boxes and
clocks especially can be made for
special occasions such as weddings,
Mother's Day, or Valentine's Day."
In addition, she's taught her kids
the craft and her two sons now have
their own designs on her website.
Recently, Diane's love for wood
scrolling led her to an organization
working to honor soldiers who have
lost their lives in Iraq. According to
the Scroll Saw Portraits group web-
site, the "Portrait Freedom" project
seeks to honor the families of the
fallen heroes of Operation Iraqi
Freedom and Enduring Freedom

Crash claims


Bristol woman
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A single vehicle accident in Gadsden County
has claimed the life of a Bristol woman.
Julieann Miller Barnhart, 45, was pro-
nounced dead at the scene. JULIEANN MILLER BARNHART
According to the Florida Highway Patrol,
Barnhart was southbound on CR 267 around
3:20 p.m. Saturday when her 2003 Chevrolet SUV traveled off the road and
onto the west grass shoulder. Barnhart reportedly overcorrected as she
steered the vehicle back onto the road. The SUV began rotating counterclock-
wise, sliding across the highway and into a ditch. The vehicle then overturned
several times and Barnhart was ejected. She was not wearing her seatbelt at
the time.
The accident was investigated by Cpl. Donnie M. Pitts of the Florida
Highway Patrol.
Funeral services are planned Friday, July 20, at 11:00 a.m. (CDT) at the
Bristol Pentecostal Holiness Church with Rev. Coy Collins officiating.
Barnhart leaves behind her fiance, Ricky Mayo, along with six children. Her
complete obituary appears on page 4.

made


in home


invasion
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
The Blountstown Police
Department .has made one
arrest and is seeking a sec-
ond suspect in a home inva-
sion robbery that allegedly
occurred a week ago.
Anthony "Bull" Patterson,
29, of Blountstown, was
taken into custody Friday. A
warrant has been issued for
the arrest of Cortney Jacoda
Thomas, 18.
According to the BPD,
Kendja Martin told authori-
ties he was at his home on
Jeffrey Street around 5:30
p.m. Thursday talking out-
side with a juvenile. As they
spoke, he said Thomas and
Patterson rushed into the
home through the back door,
grabbed both of them, and
demanded their money.
Thomas allegedly began
choking the juvenile while
Patterson held Martin. At
one point, Thomas reported-
ly released the youth, went
into Martin's bedroom and
retrieved $250 in cash. He
then allegedly returned to
the living room and told
Patterson, "I got it, let's go!"
The pair then fled the area.

To the Editor:
Since the invention of the
automobile, people have had
an obsession with "taking to
the road." Across the United
States, cities and counties
are reaping the benefits from
the American family's desire
to explore. With Calhoun
County's uniqueness and
historical charm, a well-
planned RV park may be the
booster shot we've all been
waiting for.
Studies have shown, time
and again, the economic and
tourism success associated
with RV camp grounds. From
new local jobs to a boost in
area revenue, an RV park has
the potential to help the
entire community and high-
light the region's cultural
heritage.
My father was always fond
of saying, "Don't stand in the
way of progress." Positive
growth and progress are
what Calhoun County needs!
Since we have the property
and it's not being used, then
let's find a way to make it
benefit our local economy
and promote our entire com-
munity. Please support a
solid plan for helping our-
selves. Let's make Calhoun
County a stopping point on
America's roads!

Dear Editor:
Calhoun County people
need to be aware of these
things that will take place if
the School- Board votes to
consolidate our schools.
They will have to raise
taxes 2 mills, costing tax pay-
ers about $640,000 each
year and school would only
get about one fourth of this
($160,000) and the state
would get the other three-

fourths or $480,000 each
year. This tax increase would
cost our two nursing homes
over $11,000 more taxes
each year.
Our county already has
higher taxes than all of the
surrounding counties. Do
you think a business is com-
ing to our county when they
could go to Jackson, Gulf,
Bay, etc. with cheaper taxes?
Students and teachers
would be away from home
over an hour more each day.
State only pays about 1/3
of what it takes to operate the
school buses. County lost
$150,000 last year. What do
you think it will cost to oper-
ate more buses traveling
more miles with price of gas
and salary for drivers?
Cost of .driving to school
for students and teachers
would be $5 to $8 more each
day ($900-1400 p'er yr.)
What will happen to par-
ents who drop off students at
school? Suppose a parent
from Altha or Blountstown
has three children - one in
Altha, one in Blountstown Jr.
High and one at Clarksville -
30 miles x 2 + 60 miles and
40� per mile = $24 each day
($4320 per year) Private
schools would be cheaper!
Who will benefit if we con-
solidate our schools? Not our
students or teachers. Must
be someone else!!
If you are against consoli-
dation, call your Board mem-
ber and tell him/her. Also,

Blountstown High School
Library on Monday, July 23,

To the Editor:
Dear Parents and
Taxpayers - present and
future -
Much has been said about
school consolidation in
Calhoun County the last cou-
ple of years. Those who
oppose consolidation have
given many reasons why they
think consolidation is not in
the best interest of school
children and their respective
communities. Those sup-
porting consolidation have
generally been saying our
present school are in such
poor 'condition and--we can
get a pot of "free" money to
build a new school, and they
use this rationale to say that
want to do what is best for
our children.
Folks, we are now at a
point in all of these studies
that we need to take a good
look at what is really in store
for parents, children, and all
taxpayers for many years to
come.
The first question is, If a
new high school is to be built,
where will it be located? No
school can- be built unless

And the walls came tumbling down...

The old Blountstown Police Department building on the corner of SR 20 and 71 is no more after being
demolished Thursday. The dilapidated structure met it's fate after city officials opted to relocate the BPD into
the old Blountstown Library on North Pear Street earlier this year. The original plan called for a new police sta-
tion to be constructed on the now vacant site, but the project has been put on hold indefinitely due to high-
er than anticipated costs.





Senator Al Lawson honored




as "Champion for Business"


Business initiatives that
will reap positive benefits for
Florida's economy and the;
state's 17-million residents
remained a top priority for
elected leaders during the
2007 Legislative Session.
Based on this year's legisla-
tive agenda, Associated
Industries of Florida (AIF) has
released its annual Voting
Records Report and
announced .the 2007
Champion for, Business
award winners. Among the
winners is North Florida's
own Senator Al Lawson.
AIF Information
Technology Council present-
ed Sen. Lawson (D-
Tallahassee) with a
Legislator of the Year Award.
As Chairman of the Senate
Governmental Operations
Committee, Sen. Lawson
sponsored the Information
Technology Council's "must
pass bill" of the session, SB
1974 . Relating to IT
Governance. He also spon-
sored an amendment sup-
ported by the Information
Technology Council, requir-
ing state government to con-
sider refreshing IT equipment
on a regularly scheduled
basis. Without Senator
Lawson's leadership on the IT
Governance bill, AlF's issues
would not have made it into
the final enrolled bill that was


SENATOR AL LAWSON


recently signed by the
Governor.' Since this bill will
guide all enterprise informa-
tion technology projects in
the future, 'it was very critical
bill for the IT Council.
The "Champion Awards"
are presented annually to
leaders who are strong and
forceful advocates of the
business community. The
winners are the "chosen few"
who work with great determi-
nation to advance policies
that stimulate Florida's econ-
omy and fight against pro-
posals that will undermine
business expansion and job
growth.
The voting records are


based on thousands of votes
cast on business related bills
and amendments. The publi-
cation is considered the most
comprehensive and objective
report in the state. In addi-
tion, the AIF Champion for
Business awards are present-
ed each year to leaders who
sponsor and defend critical
business bills, as well as
those who worked behind-
the-scenes on legislation that
is critical to the livelihood of
Florida's business communi-
ty.
Associated Industries'
Voting Records provide
Florida's business communi-
ty and elected leaders with a
detailed analysis of member
votes on the issues that
greatly impact businesses,
employers and the economy.
"The 2007 legislative ses-
sion was generally a mixed
bag. The business communi-
ty enjoyed some key legisla-
tive victories including "guns
in the workplace" and the
defeat of tort reform weaken-
ing legislation. But much
work remains to be done.
Property and casualty insur-
ance legislation is, at best,'a
stop gap measure and we are
all hoping for another hurri-
cane season like last year.
On property taxes, we hearti-
ly supported Governor
Charlie Crist's compromise


proposal, but we want to con-
tinue to work on more mean-
ingful reform in the next ses-
sion 'that will benefit all ad
valorem taxpayers."
The Voting Records results
demonstrate overall' Senate
votes on pro-business legisla-
tion were down from 92% in
2006 to 85% in 2007, mainly
the result of 'the Senate
advancing through several
committees a series of
healthcare mandates and a
guns in the workplace bill.
This year, Senator Gary
Siplin (D-Orlandol led the
way for Democratic pro-busi-
ness initiatives in the Senate,
while freshman Senator
Stfve Oelrich (R-GainesiUlle)
was. at the top of his class
with a 93% voting record. In
addition, Senator Mike
Harido'polos (R-Melbourne)
and Senator Alex Diaz de la
Portilla (R-Miami) remained
vigilant supporters of the
business economy and the
state's economic future.
Ninety-two percent of the
time, the House voted in
favor of business measures,
this score is down from 95%
last year. Two freshman
Representatives Seth McKeel
(R-Lakeland) and 'Nick
Thompson (R-Ft. Myers) pro-
vided stalwart support to the

neighbors. "Mr. Alwin" was

Blountstown's AA All Stars end exciting season




Our champs return from state


The Blountstown AA All-
Star team completed their
season with a run at the
State title in East Lakeland,
FL.-
The team began the week
with opening ceremonies at
Cypress Gardens on Friday
night. Plan began on
Saturday with Blountstown

Stars. After the dust had
settled, the Blountstown All-
Stars came out on top with a
13-1 victory.
On Sunday, Blountstown
had a matchup with
Hernando All-Stars. After five
innings of play it was all tied
at 4, Hernando scored 4 runs


in the top of the sixth inning.
Blountstown threatened, but
fell short in the bottom half,.
giving Hernando an 8-4 win.
Blountstown fell to the los-
ers bracket setting up a
matchup with the Callaway
American All-Stars.
Callaway American took an
early lead, but the mighty
Blountstown wouldn't quit
battling back and took the
lead. In the end Callaway
American prevailed with a 9-
4 victory. Blountstown had
suffered their second loss of
the tournament which elimi-
nated them from further


advancement.
A huge congratulation
goes out to these young men.
Getting to go to a state tour-
nament is a huge accom-
plishment. A huge thank you
goes out to the business and
citizen sin our surrounding
counties who supported the
team, allowing these young
men to have a great time on
their journey.
Again, thank you to all
these players and families for
dedicating their time and
effort to make the AA All-
Stars season great.

Letters to the Editor cont'd-


the School Board knows
where it will be built. This is
a decision the taxpayers and
parents are entitled to know
now so that issue can be a
part of the discussion before
the Board votes on the issue.
This can make a world of dif-
ference to parents and chil-
dren.
The second question -
Much has been said about
getting a "free" pot of money
from the state. This needs to
be analyzed and put down on
paper to show everyone
exactly what has to take
place now and in the future
to get this "free" money from
the state. First, the School
Board must vote to tax all
taxpayers two additional
mills for at least three years.
After three years, the Board
will no doubt be .trying to
keep the additional millage
levied on taxpayers. If they
do not levy the extra taxes
beyond three years ( which is
about a 34% increase in
school taxes) that brings u s
to question three. It is being
said that our existing schools
are in such poor condition
that we need to build new
schools. Just think about it,
the Board plans to keep all of
the existing facilities for
school or office space. They
are going to have to maintain
the existing facilities even if
they build one new school. If
they need maintenance on
existing schools, why haven't
they already done any. need-
ed maintenance. The longer
they wait, the more expensive
it will be. Keep in mind -
when extra taxes are levied,
those levying taxes never
want to stop.
The next question that
comes to mind and has not
been explained to students,
parents, or taxpayers is the
School Board will be required
to put virtually all of its
reserve funds on the new
school as well as increasing
your school taxes about 34%.
In addition, according to
Superintendent Mary- Sue
Neves, if consolidation of
Altha and Blountstown High
Schools take place, the
School Board will lose about


r Gateway International Raceway


$00,000 per year in sparsity
funding. The loss of sparsity
funding and the loss of about
$250,000 plus per year in
interest funds, all of which
are now available for operat-
ing schools, will be lost each
and every'year. How can'the
School Board possibly lose
well over a half million dol-
lars for operation and offer
more to students? One does
not have to be real smart to
see that this cannot be.
In addition, how much
extra expense will there be
for transportation? How
much will it cost to build and
operate a sewage treatment
plant? Where will be extra
money needed for operation
come from when the Board
will be losing operation funds
by consolidation?
These are just some of the
most important questions
that should be answered in
full before the Board takes a
vote on consolidation. This is
far more important than just
trying to, get some "free"
money for a building and put
the county in an an untenable
financial position in the
future years.

We all need to look at real-
ity. What will the School
Board do if they lose all of the
interest income hey have had
for more than twenty years
along with the loss of sparsi-
ty funding? They have not
told us what they will cut.
The fact is they will have to
start cutting personnel and
cutting the salaries for the
ones that are still working.
In the next few years our
present School Board and
Superintendent will likely be
gone and Calhoun County
will still be left with the pr6b-
lem. Everyone in Calhoun
County should be thinking
and analyzing the possible
problems that consolidation
could bring. The School
Board has the authority to
make a decision for the peo-
ple of Calhoun County. They
also have the responsibility
to make a wise and best deci-
sion for the county. An issue
of this importance should be
a unanimous one by the

Tony Stewart
Born: May 20, 1971
Sponsor: The Home Depot
Crew Chief: Greg Zipadelli
S Car: Chevrolet
Biography:
Tony Stewart started his Winston Cup
career with a bang, as he qualified his No.
20 Home Depot Pontiac in second place in
his first Cup race, the 1999 Daytona 500.
Stewart's 2005 season was one of his most
successful years in the Nextel Cup. He won
five races, including the Allstate 400 at The
Brickyard, a race that Stewart said he would
give up his championship to win, and took
.with it the #1 seed headed towards
N'ASCAR's Chase for the Nextel Cup 10-
race playoff. On November 20, 2005,
Stewart won his second NASCAR Nextel
Cup Championship, joining Jeff Gordon and
Terry Labonte as the only active drivers to
have won multiple championships. Last
year, Stewart missed the cut to qualify for
the Chase for the Nextel Cup by 16 points.
He finished 11th in the final points stand-
ings, his worst finish ever, as he had been In
the top 10 in all of his previous 7 seasons.


NASCAR officials penalized Robby Gordon and his
No. 7 team 25 driver points and 25 car owner '?
points for rule violations discovered during an ini-
tial technical inspection at Daytona International .. -
Speedway. NASCAR also fined crew chief Gene
Nead $25,000 and placed him on NASCAR proba-
tion until Dec. 31. Gordon was penalized for "actions detrimental to
stock car racing" and parts that do not conform to NASCAR rules,
including an unapproved camera shell.

Tony Stewart got his first NASCAR Nextel Cup Series vic-
tory of the season at Chicagoland Speedwayon Sunday. It
broke a 20-race winless streak for Tony, whose last victory
came November 5, 2006 at Texas Motor Speedway. After
the race he stated, "I'm glad this is over. I'm going on vaca-
tion." Stewart also had won at Chicagoland in 2004. Matt
Kenseth held off a charge from teammate Cad Edwards to
finish second. Edwards finished third, followed by Kevin
Harvick and pole-sitter Casey Mears. Dale Eamhardt Jr.
was running third with 58 laps to go when he had a power
steering failure. Hendrick Motorsports has now been shut
out of victory lane for the past five races.

Gateway Arch in St Louis, the 1.25-mile
Gateway International Raceway boasts a
state-of-the-art lighting system and cur-
rently seats 60,000. While the track is fairly short by mod-
em NASCAR standards, it does not compensate for this
with high banking. Rather, it is unique in that the turns are
banked differently, and are also of different radii. The track
plays host to NASCAR's Busch and Craftsman Truck

New hospital administrator




ready to tackle challenges


BY RON GILLIARD
Hello, Calhoun and Liberty
County citizens! I'm your new
Hospital Administrator. Let
me introduce myself and
then let you know a little
about some of our current
services and plans for the
future at Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital.
My name is Ron Gilliard
and I'm originally from not
too far up the road from you.
I was born and raised in
Southwest Georgia in
Camilla. I graduated from
Valdosta State College in
Valdosta, Georgia and
Georgia State University in
Atlanta and received my
Masters in Healthcare
Administration. (By the way,
after over thirty-five years in
it, I've realized you CANT
"master" healthcare adminis-
tration!)
I retired from the Air Force
ten years ago as a Lieutenant
Colonel. I was stationed in
several states and
Washington, D.C., as well as
Germany and even
Greenland! I loved the Air
Force and was proud to serve
my country in my chosen
profession of health care. The
last decade I've been the
Administrator of small, rural
hospitals in South Georgia.
My wife, Beth, and I have
one daughter, one son-in-law
and the new "center of our
universe" as of almost two
years now, one grand-son
William. (Grandkids will
change your life, won't they?)
I know I have my work cut
out for me here at Calhoun-
Liberty but I'm very excited
about meeting all the chal-
lenges head on. In the
process, we are going to
upgrade your hospital to one
hopefully you and your fami-
ly will be pleased to 'use for
the services we can provide.
And that is what I would like
to do with the rest of this arti-
cle - tell you about those
services and some we hope to
be adding.
It's almost a miracle, and
I'm sure many of you are
aware of the story, that this
hospital is still open. The
Board of the Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital Association, led by
Mr. Laddie Williams, the staff
of the hospital, and the local
physicians, accomplished
that miracle after the previ-
ous owner/operator almost
closed the hospital.
Some other hospitals, due
to the same for-profit compa-
ny, faced similar fates. One
did not make it and has been


HOSPITAL ADMINISTRATOR
. RON GILLIARD


closed. Another is in serious
trouble. Most all small, rural
hospitals today face tough
futures. I'm proud and confi-
dent telling you the future of
your local hospital is bright!
I took this job because I
saw the commitment of the
Board to continue to improve
this hospital and make it a
high quality, cost conscious,
compassionate place to
receive your medical care. I'm
even more convinced of that
commitment after my first
month here.
Our goal is to have a high
quality, primary care health
care system to meet your
basic needs. We can take care
of many medical problems in
our inpatient setting as well
as perform many outpatient
diagnostic tests here locally.
Did you know we have a
"CAT" scan machine now? We
are doing lots of tests with
this fancy piece of radiology
equipment and will soon be
adding the capability to do
"MRI" tests as well.
We even do "nuclear medi-
cine tests" such as scans for
bone, liver, and gall bladder
problems. We can perform
mammograms and ultra-
sound tests also..
We have these te,ts "read"
by highly qualified radiologist
physicians so that your
results will be provided to
your local physician in a
timely and highly profession-
.al manner.
We already have a very
busy Emergency Room. I
was impressed the day I had
my interview for this job.
when I saw the article in the
paper about the young lady
that received care here after
being bitten by a snake. She
did not have to drive out of
town for a half hour or an
hour to receive this needed
care.
We have a well staffed and

well equipped clinical labora-
tory that can perform many if
not most of the tests your
doctor may order. With our
inpatient care, we also pro-
vide respiratory therapy care
around the clock.
We can also care for
patients that are ready to be
discharged from the larger
medical centers near us in
our "swing bed" program.
They will then be much clos-
er to their family. Often,
these patients are then
admitted to nursing homes.
We hope to have several
other specialty doctors come
to Blountst6wn to conduct
clinics. We are already talk-
ing to some. It will benefit
you to have an orthopedic
surgeon or a cardiologist, for
example, to conduct clinic
here. (Especially at the cost
of gas today!) We will keep
you informed of this pro-
gram. Currently, urologist
Dr. Robert Bradford is the
only "sub-specialist" doctor
conducting clinic here but,
again, we hope to increase
this program soon.
We'll be "sprucing up" the
hospital in several areas. If
you would like to help us do
this, give me a call and I will
tell you about our new Adopt-
a-Room Program. I will do an
article on this great program
soon.
So, I'm glad to be here!
Beth and I look forward to
becoming a part of your com-
munity. I'm excited about


moving your hospital forward
in many positive ways. I will
need your help and support
in using our services and
encouraging others to do so.
Hope I caf count on you!
Please stop by or give me a
call if you have any questions
or comments about the hos-
pital. Or to just say hello! My
number at the hospital is
674-5411, ext 206.
