CONTROVERSY


With the final vote looming,

political pressure intensifies


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Whether or not to consolidate
Blountstown and Altha high
schools is undeniably the toughest
issue the Calhoun County School
Board has ever faced. Alter two
years of studying. debating. and
feuding. the final workshop on the
matter was held Monday afternoon
in the BHS Media Center Because
it was a workshop, a vote could not
be taken on the matter. However, a
decision is expected to be reached
early in the upcoming school year.


During the workshop.
Superintendent Mary Sue Neves
went down the list of recommenda-
tions from the School Facilities
Task Force. Appointed in January
after a sees of heated meetings on
the issues, the Task Force was
comprised of business leaders.
school teachers, and citizens from
all across the county. The majonty%
of the Task Force came back with a
proposal to consolidate: the minor-
ity recommended against it
One of the biggest concerns from
all those on the Task Force was the
fact that Carr School has 60 per-


cent of students in portable class-
rooms. Altha has 10 percent m the
same setting. 'That's a heck of a
situation to put those kids in every"
day with tornadoes when you've got
a chance to do something." District
5 School Board member Danny'
Hassig remarked.
Hassig has been the most vocal
of all the School Board members in
favor of consolidation. "It goes right
back to the dollar." Hassig stated.
"What's best for the kids and the
least burden on the taxpayers."

Dear Editor,
Congratulations to the
Blountstown, Fla. City
Council for naming the
Blountstown Police Chief to
also serve as City Manager.
Hopefully, they will make this
new position permanent.
Please consider some basic
facts surrounding their vote
which was made at a recent
Council Meeting.
According to the
(Blountstown) charter, the
police chief is hired-fired by
elected Council members.
Both Council members and
the chief have power to hire-
fire city employees. The char-
ter doesn't mention a manag-
er, thus this is a big move -
made without costly lawyer
legislative debates decisions-
etc. or preventing a future
charter-change if desired by
Electors.
By delegating hiring-firing
powers to a qualified and
existing official, Council
members can now spend
time with other problems.
The new Chief-Manager can
name an Asst. (Manager) if
needed.
Towns / communities
should take note of this
unique approach to govern-
ment. We're all concerned cit-

tee is important to ALL farm-
ers and ranchers with large

cial that every eligible pro-

committees are a direct link
between the agricultural.
community and the U.S.
Department of Agriculture.
Committee members are a
critical component of the
operations of FSA. They help
deliver FSA farm programs at
the local level. Farmers who
serve on:. committees help
with the decisions necessary
to administer the programs
their counties offer. They
work to make FSA agricultur-
al programs serve the needs
of local producers.
Committees provide local
input on:
* Commodity price sup-
port loans and payments;
* Establishment of allot-
ments and yields;
* Conservation programs;,
* Incentive, indemnity,
and disaster payments for
some commodities; and
* Other farm disaster

for Fiscal Year 2008, which
passed last night in the
House of Representatives.
"I am so proud that. I was

access to healthcare," said
Congressman Boyd. "The
construction of a medical

that this medical center is

no doubt that the clinic will

Visit to



the eye



doctor

During their trip to the
states, a group of Russian
orphans (pictured above)
paid a visit to local
optometrist Dr. Barry
Edewaard of Blountstown.
Dr. Edewaard graciously
provided free eye exams
to each of the children, as
well as their interpreter. At
left, young Nelli gets com-
fortable in the exam chair
as Dr. Edewaard prepares
to check her eyes. Through
Hearts of Hope
International, orphans from
around the globe will be
visiting our area regularly in
hopes of finding forever
families. If you'd like to get
involved, cpntact Gary
and Judy Cox at 674-8815
or go to www.starling
management.com.


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
The sight and sound of
crashing waves on Panama
City Beach are often taken for
granted by little ones growing
up in the Florida panhandle.
But when a group of Russian
orphans recently laid eyes on
the ocean for the first time
ever, it was a vision they will
never forget.
Gary and Judy Cox of
Blountstown are partners in
a mission known as Hearts'of
Hope International. After over
a year of planning and
preparing, the organization
brought the first of many
groups of orphans to our
region for a true Northwest
Florida experience.
"When they saw the ocean,
they were scared," says Judy
of their first day at the beach.
"Gary had to get in the water
first to show them it was
alright." Soon, the nine
youngsters, ranging in age
from 7 to 17, were frollicking
in the sand and sea.
Another first... a moonlight
cruise and fireworks show.
"When they saw the fireworks
for the first time, they were in
awe...their mouths just
dropped!" says Judy.
The Russian orphans were
flown to the states for a
month at Bethlehem Camp
near Bonifay. The camp has
been a popular retreat for
area churches for years and
will soon be. the site of the
Hearts of Hope International
Children's Home. The goal is
to bring international
orphans to the states and
connect them with American


families, hopefully leading to
adoption. This will help fami-
lies who want to adopt a
child, but can't afford travel-
ing to a foreign country for
the adoption process.
Unfortunately, Judy
explains that Russia has
ceased all international adop-
tions at this time so the chil-


dren who visited this month
are not adoptable. "But just
coming to the United States
adds 10 years to their life,"
she points out. "It shows
them a different way of life
and just gives them hope."

Hope, go to www.starling-

Reed Sorenson
Born: Feb. 5, 1986
r? Sponsor: Target
Crew Chief: Jimmy Elledge
Car: Dodge
Biography:
Reed Sorenson began racing when he was only six
years old, winning more than 250 races during his
time in Quarter Midgets. In 2003, the Georgia native
became the youngest driver ever to win the Rookie of
the Year title in the ASA series. That year, he finished
fourth in the standings with seven top-five and 14 top-
10 finishes. In only his second start in the ARCA
series, Sorenson won at Michigan Intemational
Speedway in June 2004. Later in 2004, Discount Tire
Co. and Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sebates
announce their partnership for the 2005 Busch Series
season and named Reed Sorenson as their driver for
the #41 Dodge. In 2005, Sorenson won his first Busch
Series race at Nashville Superspeedway. He began
his NEXTEL Cup career in the 2005 Bass Pro Shops
MBNA 500, racing as #39 in a temporary car. He was
involved in a crash and finished 41st. Sorenson began
racing full-time in the Nextel Cup in 2006, In his first
race as a NEXTEL Cup regular, Sorenson finished
29th in the Daytona 500. Reed's best finish in the 2006
Nextel Cup season was a 5th place effort at Michigan
International Speedway.


Sam Hornish Jr. already has exceeded the goals he set as -
a young kid whose biggest dream was to drive in an , a ,
Indianapolis 500. Having won at the Brickyard a year ago,
and with three IndyCar Series titles at the age of 28, he's
considering a risky jump to NASCAR. "It's safe to say that
the challenge of it intrigues me," Homish said while
preparing for last week's Honda 200 in Lexington, Ohio. There's no question that
Hornish has been good in IRL. His win at Texas Motor Speedway last month was
his 19th. Hornish is running a limited Busch Series schedule this season.

Reed Sorenson put an end to a 61-race winless streak on
Saturday night at the Busch Gateway 250. Reed's previous
victory was nearly two years ago at the same track.
Sorenson was able to avoided the pitfalls of a caution-filled
race. Scott Wimmer, earned his first pole position in 136
races and led the first 53 laps before a.right fiat tire forced
him into the pits. He stayed near the front of the pack most
of the race but finished second. David Reutimann, passed
by Sorenson on lap 159, finished third. After the race
Sorenson said, "It's been a long couple of years in the
Busch Series. We felt last year we let ourselves down and
this year we've been letting ourselves down."

_ The Indianapolis Motor Speedway was built on
328 acres of farmland five miles northwest of
Indiana's capital city jn the spring of 1909.
When the first race took place in August, 1909,
the celebration quickly turned into a disaster
due to the surface'of crushed stone and tar.
"' There were terrible injuries to the race'car dri-
vers and spectators. Cars caught fire, there were deaths, and the
race was halted and canceled when only halfway completed.
The safety concerns for race drivers and spectators eventually
led to a substantial additional expenditure to pave the track sur-
face with 3.2 million paving bricks, and gave the track its popular
nickname, 'The Brickyard". The Brickyard 400, a tremendously
successful NASCAR stock car event, debuted in 1994.

award, now in its 23nd year,
recognizes women who have
made outstanding contribu-

"This award spotlights the
vital role of women in Florida
agriculture and serves to
encourage other women to
get involved in the business,"
Bronson said. "Many women

butions over the years in


developing and sustaining
this important industry,
which has an overall econom-
ic impact estimated at more
than $97 billion annually."
Those nominated for the
award will be judged by a
panel familiar with Florida
agriculture. The award will
be presented in February at
the opening-day luncheon of
the 2008 Florida State Fair in
Tampa.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services, which sponsors the
event, has sent nomination
forms to agricultural organi-
zations around the state.

nominations to the
Department is November 1,
2007. Nominations remain

A few hours later,
Mashburn said he heard a

said they asked if he wanted

declined, and they told him
he was going to buy it any-

After being taken into cus-

missing cash. He said the
items were taken in exchange
for drugs to be delivered later

DRIVERS LICENSE OFFICE
WILL OPEN AUGUST 1,2007

In 1997 the Honorable Barbara Davis took on the enormous
task of providing the service of drivers license to the Citizens of
Calhoun County. Over the years the Tax Collector's Office
turned into a "Drivers License Office" instead of a Tax
Collectors Office. This was due to the tremendous increase of
customers needing drivers license from all surrounding areas.
Due to the increased workload we could not serve, the people of
Calhoun County needing tags, titles, hunting and fishing licenses
and boat registrations in a timely manner. They were waiting in
line behind drivers license customers for 30 or 45 minutes for a
tag renewal that only takes a few minutes.
I was elected to serve all the citizens of Calhoun County and
wiih this came the responsibility to make decisions based on the
best interest of the Tax Collector's Office, my employees and the
people that live in Calhoun County, not .decisions for political
gain. So I made the decision to discontinue the service of drivers
license until I could decide the best solution that would benefit
ALL the people of the county in ALL the services that we
provide. NO employee of the office lost their job as the result of
this decision. I still employ the same 5 employees that I
employed when I took office.
The solution that I decided on was to open a
DRIVERS LICENSE DEPARTMENT
in a separate office. This office is directly across the hall from
the Property Appraisers Office.
WE WILL OPEN WEDNESDAY AUGUST 1. 2007

I have worked in the Tax Collector's Office since 1981 and have
worked through many changes. We have always strived to
provide the best service possible with limited funding to all the
people of the county. If funds become available to hire a State
Drivers License Employee, then I will be glad to open five days a
week with additional services.

school clubs would be cut in
half if two high schools
become one. "Sometimes an
educational opportunity
doesn't come out of a book,"
he commented. "Sometimes a
leadership role makes a dif-
ference in a kid's life."
Local realtor Danny Ryals
shared concerns over consol-
idation. "This is probably the
biggest decision that you will
ever make that will affect
Calhoun County," he pointed
out. "There are so many
things you don't have a firm
answer to. You have ballpark
figures, but you're not really
sure about this and that."
Minnie Griffin, a member
of the Task
Force from
Kinard
who voted
with the
majority
recom -
m e n d a -
tions, said
she was
willing g to
pay the SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER
additional TIM SMITH
taxes to
get the school district up to
par. "Only 30 percent of peo-
ple in this county are paying
taxes," she noted. "As far as
the economy, my family eats
in Blountstown once a week
and in Altha quite a bit. We
do our dry cleaning in
Blountstown and buy our
groceries in Blountstown or
Altha."
In response to comments
about students living outside
the vicinity of the new school
not being able to participate
in sports, Johnson stated, "If
you are not willing to go eight
miles to take your son or
daughter to play sports, you
are not that interested in
playing sports. I don't know
anyone from Calhoun County
who makes their living play-
ing sports and that seems
like what we are talking
about." After being ques-
tioned about what specific
programs might be added if
the schools consolidate,
Superintendent Neves stated
it would be based on supply
and demand. She said she
hopes to see more advanced
placement courses, dual
enrollment college courses,
certificated vocational pro-
grams, Jr. .ROTC, culinary
program for all, foreign lan-
guages, CNA, health services,
and more performing arts.

ffair-
booths will have treats and
supplies for the children,
also.
.Coalition members hope
that families will learn some-
thing about the services that
are available to serve them,
and have a great time doing
it. Bring them out, have a
good time and receive lots of
