After interviewing the top

CONSERVATION .


Development rights sold



on Apalachicola River land


The Northwest Florida Water
Management District Governing Board
agreed this week to purchase develop-
ment and land use conversion rights
on about 1,550 acres on the
Apalachicola River for $3 million and
1,526 acres on the Ochlockonee River
for $1.9 million.
These less-than-fee purchases,
known as conservation. easements,


will limit building densities and pro-
hibit land conversion to more intensive
uses, thus reducing the chances of
water quality degradation.
These purchases bring District con-
servation of critical river corridors and
recharge areas toover 216,000 acres,
and District conservation of the
Apalachicola floodplain to over 38,500
acres. The Apalachicola is a priority

Four PAEC member dis-
tricts out of those 24 dis-
tricts in the state, earned
a grade of B. This repre-

Board


votes 3-2


to raise


village

BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
The Calhoun County
School Board voted 3-2
Monday night to levy an
additional two mill property
tax. This capital outlay tax is
expected to generate over
$700,000 for maintenance,
reriovation and repairs to
local schools.
The decision was made at
a public hearing held
Monday night at the
Calhoun County
Courthouse. Only four citi-
zens were in the audience.
In previous board meet-
ings, it has been noted that
the two mills must be levied
in order for the school dis-
trict to qualify for special
facilities funding from the
State of Florida. During the
past six months, a local task
force has studied school'
facilities in the district and
came up with a majority
report recommending con-
solidating Altha. , and
Blountstown high schools
and a minority proposal
against consolidation.
However, both the majority
and minority reports recom-
mended levying the addition-
al two mills in order to be eli-
gible for more state dollars.
Voting in favor of the
measure were School Board
members Willie Brown,
Danny Hassig and Grant
Williams. Kelly King and Tim
Smith were against the
measure.
"I think it's absolutely the
best thing we can do for our
kids," Hassig tells The
County Record. "Nobody
enjoys having their taxes
raised, but if it's for the ben-
efit of the children and their
futures, and we're able to
offer better facilities and bet-
ter programs for these kids,
it's absolutely worth it."
Tim Smith says he felt he
would be going against his
commitment to the voters in
his district if he voted for a
tax increase. "I felt like I
would be lying to the peo-
ple," he remarks. "In my
campaign, not-one time did I
say I was in favor of increas-
ing taxes."
Smith says he also
believed a concrete plan on
the school consolidation
issue should have been in
place before the tax increase
decision was made.

The County Record, AUGUST 1, 2007, Page 2


To the Editor:
I have watched the profes-
sionals and the laymen
struggle with this school con-
-.solidation issue over the past
.-few months. I would like to
'offer a slightly different per-
spective of this issue.
I have reviewed the num-
bers presented in The County
'.Record on 07/25/07, and I
am piqued to point out that,
on its face, the non-consoli-
dation perspective is less
-expensive by about $9 mil-
lion, while giving more money
to Carr Elementary and
Blountstown High School,
.with about $1 million less for
Altha High School, with no
cost for the "consolidation",
which is about $15 million. I
,admit that the non-consoli-
dation perspective does not
look at, or "predict", econom-
ics very far into the future, as
'the consolidation perspective
purports to do.
I am reminded of the
favorite story of a very good
friend that was a much better
public speaker than I; he
stated, The difference
between dedication and com-
mitment is like eating bacon
and eggs, the chicken is ded-
icated, while the pig is com-
mitted! We have a similar sit-
uation in this issue before us.
Consolidation is a commit-
:ment, while non-consolida-
tion is a dedication.
Consolidation is an irre-
,versible proposition that may
,-be based upon the fickle
winds of prosperity. Further,
-.if the economic forecast of
the future supports the shift
of the economic center of the
county, then we have saved
about $9 million that can be
directed towards that propo-
sition. However, if the winds
of change should shift more
to the south, east or north,
we are better prepared than
we would be if we consolidat-
ed.
Now, turning away from
the economics of this issue,
let's reflect for a moment
upon the significance of the
shift of the respective high
schools away from the partic-
ular communities. Anyone
that does not realize the.
importance of "community
spirit" as a social dynamic is
simply in denial. Fund drives
for churches, raising money
for accident sufferers, and-
school groups raising money
for special trips, etc., are a
few examples of the types of
things that "communities" do
for its members, and the local
high school is a particularly
significant part of its "com-
munity".
If we reach a point where
that consolidation is the only
alternative,. then we must be
.,brave enough to make the
necessary change, or "com-
mitment". However, we have
not reached that point if con-
solidation is based upon a
prediction of necessity,
instead of realization of
necessity.
Let's be' dedicated to
improving our schools within
the framework of our com-
munities, instead of worrying
about the shifting-sands of
. economic prosperity. We can
do this job without burning
the bridges behind us!

Somehow, largely through the (
the vast pride on the part of mar
never mis,


and do a variety of activities
and programs. One of the
programs that I organized
and do, on my limited time
away from work, is to teach
and train Iraqi government
officials and citizen groups.
One of the training programs
is the international rules and
authority, used by all types of
decision making groups
around the world
Parliamentary Procedure.
I began teaching
Parliamentary Procedure to
my FFA and agricultural
classes almost thirty years
ago at Blountstown High
School. I grew to appreciate
and to enjoy teaching and
watching the students learn-
ing to interact, mature and
understand the power of
their knowledge.- I think
most of my former students
remember and, I hope,'
appreciate those days. My
audience today reminds me
of some of you back then.
We are living in interesting
times; our world is made up
of a myriad of cultures, per-
sonalities, and ways of think-
ing. I have really enjoyed
teaching Parliamentary
Procedure to my counter
parts here in Iraq. Don't
ever think we have seen
everything. This has been a
true learning experience.
Today, I would like to
share with you one of the
principles of Parliamentary
Law that we covered in our
classes. The principle of
majority rule: One of the
most over looked reasons for
studying, learning and prac-
ticing these internationally
accepted procedures.
The reason I'm sharing
this particular principle is
that I read with interest in
the local papers from back
home and find that we all
need a reminder sometimes
of what is right about our
country. It's individuals and
personalities that sometimes
need encouragement, and we
have to do that, sometimes
through our VOTE.
I hbpe you see, the mes-
sage in the. description of
Majority Rules. _..

PARLIAMENTARY
PROCEDURE:
IT'S PURPOSE AND USE
Parliamentary law is a sys-
tem of maintaining order in
organizations. It provides an
approved and uniform
method of conducting meet-
ings in a fair, orderly, and
expeditious manner.
Respect for law is a basic
characteristic of democratic
government. This respect is
clearly shown by a willing-
ness to practice an orderly
method of procedure in
organizations so as to follow
the will of the majority, to
protect the rights of the
minority, and to protect the
interests of those absent.
The use of parliamentary
procedure in itself, however,
does not insure that these
ideals will be met. Everyone
involved with an organization
must also work to create an
atmosphere of trust, mutual
respect, and shared purpose.
Whether these human princi-
ples are practiced or even
adhered to is always debat-
able. But no matter, majority
rules. Sometimes we win and
sometimes we lose. But for
the institution to continue we
must always accept these
basic principles or we give up

Gator Coach Billy Donovan to headline Chipola's...



Night of Champions


MARIANNA-Chipola
Appreciation Club officials
have announced that Billy
Donovan-coach of the
Florida Gators two-time
national champions-will
headline Chipola's Night of
Champions event on Sept. 20
to honor retired Chipola
coaching legend Milton H.
Johnson.
"'This has been a storybook
year for the Chipola athletics
program with four state
championships and national
titles in baseball and soft-
ball," said college president
Dr. Gene Prough. "Chipola
has developed a national rep-
utation in athletics, and no
one has contributed more to
our success over the years
than Coach Milton Johnson.
His basketball teams won
over 800 games _during his 32
years at Chipola. On Sept. 20
we will gather to honor Coach
Johnson's legacy and to
announce that we are estab-
lishing a special scholarship
in his name."
The Night of Champions
will cap off a year-long cele-
bratioh of Chipola's unparal-
leled success in junior college
athletics with all four of the
college's teams winning state
championships and baseball
and softball capturing
national championships.
"Like the Gators, Chipola

Champions event on Sept. 20 to honor retired Chipola coach-


ing legend Milton H, Johnson.
accomplished something last
year that's never been done
before," said athletic director
Dr. Dale O'Daniel. "It's very
appropriate that our guest
speaker on Sept. 20 is head
basketball coach of the
University of Florida, which


has won two straight NCAA
basketball, championships
and was this year's national
champion in both football
and basketball."
"A key reason why we've
been able to achieve such
success in athletics," said

event organizer and Chipola
alumnus Robert Trammell,
"is the commitment of our
alumni and friends to endow
athletic scholarships.
Through events like this, we
have raised more than $1
million in our athletic schol-
arship endowment. Without
such strong support from the
private sector, the rising cost
of operating athletic pro-
grams would prevent us from
continuing the national-level
programs we've put in place
at Chipola."
Other featured speakers at
the Sept. 20 event will be
Chipola alumnus Cliff Ellis,
the 1999 NJCAA National
Coach of the year, who
recently was named head
coach at Coastal Carolina.
Ellis has coached teams to
championships in three dif-
ferent conferences - ACC
(Clemson), SEC (Auburn) and
Sun Belt (South Alabama).
Ellis will be joined by
Chipola's "fab four" head
coaches who led their teams
to national prominence this
season: David Lane, women's
basketball; Greg Heiar, men's
basketball; Belinda Hendrix,
softball; and Jeff Johnson,
baseball.
Tickets for the dinner are
$75, most of which is tax-
deductible. For information,
call 850-718-2375.


Will Hosford, William Hayes
and Tommy Hatcher had an
opportunity to attend Shane
Matthew's Fun-n-Gun Football
Camp in Gainesville on July 27th
& 28th. They practiced at "The
Swamp" and toured the locker
and weight room where the
Gator players work out and
dress for the games. They got a
close look at Heisman Trophies
won by Steve Spurrier and
Danny Wuerffel and the 1996 &
2006 National Championship
trophies. They also were able to
meet Coach Urban Meyers and
the following Gator players:
Mark McGriff, Travis McGriff, John
Brantley, Jim Collins, and Willie
Jackson.

Team Carmart takes third in Offshore Classic
Team Carmart held third place in the Marqurdt's Marina Ofshore Classic held last Friday and
Saturday with this 25.5 lb Mahi Mahi until the last 10 minutes when they were bumped to 4th by
a 25.9 lb fish. The team consisted of (left to right) Steve Petty-captain, and anglers Brenda Petty,
her husband, Daniel Petty, and Josh Gingerich (not pictured), The team fished 60 miles out and
the highlights of their two days-fishing were a 250-300 Ib Marlin hooked Friday and battled by
Josh for a solid hour on only 40 lb test bringing it to the boattwice. It was Josh's first ever offshore
trolling trip. The Marlin put on c fantastic ariel display and show of brute strength, but was near-
ly beaten when, because of time limits, they had to break the line and head in. Another high-
light was, of course, the 25.5 Mahi Mahi which was Brendo's first ever saltwater fish, caught on
Saturday.


Carpenter crew reels i 76 lb. Wahoo
A crew from Liberty County competed in the Marqurdt's
Marina Offshore Classic held last Frday and Saturday, reeling in

BY KRISTY HALLEY SPEERS
The current Blountstown
High School campus has
been a place of education in
Calhoun County for 100+
years. While our school sys-
tem has grown and changed,
one thing has remained the
same-a school bell has rung
on the Main Street campus
for 100+ consecutive years.
Over the course of the next
several months, we will cele-
brate Calhoun County High
School or "Calco High", which
later became Blountstown
Elementary, Blountstown
Junior High and finally
Blountstown High, and the
accomplishments of its stu-
dents.
Plans are for weekly news-
paper articles to include pho-
tos, features on graduates,
and updates on our exciting
100+ year celebration plans.
In pulling together event
details, we need help in sev-
eral areas. If you can be of
assistance in any respect,
please contact Sharon
Leonard-McCrone at 850-
674-5724 or by e-mail at
bhs 100years@yahoo.com.
We need help to:
* Locate the oldest living
student who attended one of
the~schools located on the
curi*nt BHS campus. The
person does not have to be a
graduate since very few peo-
ple were fortunate enough to
have had the opportunity to
actually "finish" school in the
early days. We have several
91 year old individuals who
attended school on this cam-
pus.
* Collect articles by former
students sharing memories of
Their time on campus-mem-:
-,orinesof a, special teacher; a,.,,
friend or group of friends, an;
athletic event or trip, etc.
Please limit entries to. 200
words. Select entries will be
published in the local news-
papers and MAY be pub-
lished in a future collection of
celebration stories. The first

Ten local youth learned the
art of turkey hunting during the
action packed 4-H Bucks and
Beards Day Camp. Hosts were
Randall and Pam Joiner of the
National Wild Turkey
Federation/Big River
Longbeards Chapter. From
them the kids learned about
turkey ecology and hunting
techniques, including different
types of calls and how to disap-
pear in the woods with camou-
flage! Scott Cassels, our local
Florida Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission
Officer talked to the kids about
hunter safety, rules, and using a
compass. Thank you to Neal
Land and Timber for a field trip
to one of their hunting leases
where we saw deer, hog, and
turkey tracks. Mr. Cassels also
pointed out many interesting
things along the hike, and
showed us how to make a blind
out of palmetto fronds. Thank
you also to the local businesses
and hunters who donated
many wonderful items.

What is that plant any-
way? Did you know that
Calhoun County is home to
many unique plants? The
goal of botanists Travis and
Karen MacClendon is to col-
lect every plant in Calhoun
County and formally voucher
the specimens at the
University of South Florida or
the Godfrey Museum of
Florida State University. The
herbarium is located here in
Calhoun County. Hundreds
of plants have been collected
and preserved thus far. Their
website, http://www.cal-
houncountyherbarium.org,
has images of many of these'
plants, and many more will
be added. So, whether grow-
ing on land or in water, if you
need a plant identified, bring
it by our office. We can find
out what it is, if it's a prob-
lem, and what to do about it.
Got bugs?
Gardening is a wonderful
hobby, but it can bring with
it unwelcome guests! If you

Letters to the Editor cont'd-


our rights and the position
we hold, to serve the people.
The elected majority rules
and, remember, the people.
are watching.
Those that disagree with
these principles of majority
rule can pout, be disorderly,
be professional, and try hard-
er to get your point across
next time or not. To disrupt
due process of the organiza-
tion is to undermine the will
of the voting public. All par-
ties are elected to collectively
pursue the business of the
people, as each sees fit.
This is the reason for elec-
tions-- every several years.
People are elected to do busi-
ness in behalf of the people
that they represent. Do they
represent our way of thinking
and what is best for our fam-
ilies and their future?
Remember, majority rules.
Are we a team player or do we
want the house to fall?
The Principle of Majority
Rule:
Majority rule processes do
not require consensus for
group action. Instead, deci-
sions are made by voting with
a majority determining the
position of the entire group.
This approach has the
advantage of being able to
produce a prompt and clear
decision. (It may take some
time before consensus
processes can reach deci-
sions--if they can at all.)
Unfortunately, majority
rule processes provide only
limited incentives for the par-
ties to compromise or to-find
a way for dealing with issues
that serve the interests of all
participants. Instead, the
incentive is to compromise
only enough to build a major-
ity coalition. Once a winning
coalition has been achieved,
the parties are largely free to
ignore the interests of other
participants.

Logan Barbee
Senior US Advisor, Iraq

Letter to the Editor:
Following a report that ten
people were injured last year
by jumping sturgeons on the
Suwannee River is an
account in an area newspa-
per that in the first five
months of this year jumping
sturgeons have injured seven
people.
Major Bruce Hamlin,
director of F&WCC's north
central region said "however,
this should serve as a warn-
ing to other boaters on the
Suwannee. We want people
to enjoy the recreational
opportunities on the river but
also we want people to be
aware that these fish do jump
and can hurt you. Please
don't think this can't happen
to you if you are creating on
the Suwannee River during
the summer months. There
is a good chance that you
could encounter a sturgeon
jumping out of the water."
One could get the message
from his remarks that
chances are that you are
more apt to get hit than not
by a sturgeon if you boat on


. the river. Yet he didn't give
any means of guarding
against such hits. Knowing
that he is one of the most
practical minded F&WCC
personnel that I have met
tells me he would have men-
tioned any safe guard if there
were any. The only way to
protect ones self from a
jumping sturgeon absolutely
is don't boat on the river.
How can you guard against
something that you can't see
coming until it's upon you?
Reducing the number of stur-
geon in the river would
undoubtedly reduce the
number of sturgeon hits. But
as in the case of three gator
killings in tern days no -men-
tion was even made of that
possibility. The same as the
year Florida had more shark
attacks than any other place
in the world the only remark
I heard made was from a
screwball at the University of
Florida when he said "As long
as we are killing more sharks
than they are killing of us
everything is hunky-dory. No
mention of reducing shark
numbers. Although their
numbers are intolerable in
many areas of Florida no
mention is made of reducing
their numbers of hunting or
otherwise.
Consider this at the so
called summit on Florida
hunting in Orlando on
August 13, 2005 Jamie
Adams former sheriff of
Sumpter County Florida 16
years, game and fish game
warden for 17 years, one
term fish and wildlife com-
missioners, and a writer for
Woods and Water confronted
Vick Heller the assistant
executive director of F&WCC
in my presence, on the ques-
tion of for what reason was
bear hunting stopped in 1993
by G&FC. Heller admitted it
was stopped for political rea-
sons. Adams then asked
Heller, Who put pressure on
the commission. Heller
answered the Legislature.
Adams asked why did Game
and Fish give in to the
Legislature, Heller replied in
a highly agitated voice "they
would have wiped us out" he
was obviously referring to the
fact that the Legislature
determined F&WCC's budget.
That was the first time in
eleven years that any com-
missioned personnel had
admitted what I had known
for at least 10 years, that
bear hunting was stopped for'
political reasons.
What caused this was the
biased reporting liberal'
media had convinced the
Legislature that a majority of
the people were against bear
hunting as well as the killing
of bear to keep population
number in keeping with the
available habitat and to this
day F&WCC is restrained by
the Legislature from enter-
taining any notion of reduc-
ing bear numbers, sturgeon
numbers, shark numbers,
alligator numbers, etc.
What all this boils down to
is that the Legislatures inter-
pretation that a majority of
the people put the preserva-
tion of wildlife above human
safety and will not condone
the reduction of wildlife for
that purpose. Evidently


those who don't hunt, fish or
eat meat have more influence
on the Legislature and conse-
quently F&WCC than does
the majority.
The. problem is biased
reporting by the liberal media
and self-serving politician's
which is a formula for disas-
ter. This must be changed.
To 'put it simply instead of
using their control .over
F&WCC's budget to cause it
to do right they are using
that control to support them
in doing wrong.
I know of but two mem-
bers of the Legislature who
speak out against this wrong-
doing.

Hunters Association
Former elected Sheriff of

Nineteen Blountstown-
area timber harvesters
learned about Best
Management Practices
(BMPs) and endangered
species at a Florida Master
Logger workshop in
Blountstown on July 21. The
class is part of an ongoing
effort to promote responsible
harvesting practices in the
logging profession.
Roy Lima, of the Florida
Division of Forestry reviewed
Florida's BMPs-- a voluntary
system of land management
criteria that guide landown-
ers and timber harvesters in
operations that sustain prof-
itable forest operations while
protecting wetlands, wildlife
species and other environ-
mental concerns. A 2005
study showed that Florida
BMPs enjoy 99% compliance
by landowners and loggers
statewide.
In addition to BMPs, par-
ticipants also learned about
updates to the Endangered
Species Act of 1973, includ-
ing information on the spot-
ted owl, from Joe McGlincy,
certified wildlife biologist with
The Wildlife Company.
This workshop is one of


eight Florida Master Logger
continuing education courses
offered during the year, spon-
sored by the Florida Forestry
Association and the Florida
Sustainable Forestry
Initiative State
Implementation Committee.

, Pocono Raceway opened in 1971 and the
Mattioli family brought in Indy cars and
USAC stock cars while dreaming of hosting
NASCAR's premi ere series. In 1974, the first
NASCAR 500 mile race took place. Thirty
two years later, the Pocono Raceway is rec-
ognized as one of NASCAR's most compet-
itive raceways. Pocono's unusual triangular configuration is
conducive to many lead changes, especially with the longest
straightaway and the widest main straight with the longest
and widest Pit Road. Pocono's unique 2.5 mile track features
three turns, each having its own degree of banking. Of the
current drivers on the circuit, Bobby Labonte and Jeff
Gordon have each won three separate times at Pocono.

Tony Stewart got his second career win at the
Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Sunday in the Allstate
400. After his victory lap, Tony's team joined him for his
celebratory fence climb. He led a race-high 66 laps out of
160 laps. Juan Pablo Montoya, the 2000 winner of the
Indianapolis 500, finish second. Jeff Gordon, the series
points leader and four-time Brickyard winner, finished
third followed by Kyle Busch, pole-sitter Reed Sorenson
and Mark Martin. The victory made Stewart, the two-time
series champion, the favorite for a third title. Six of the
past nine Indy winners went on to win the Cup, including
the past two, and Stewart himself won it in 2005.

Apalachicola River land


nificantly limiting develop-
ment and future land use is
one of our best water
resource protections," said
Executive Director Douglas
,E. Barr. "With these purchas-
es from environmentally con-
cerned landowners, we
extend protection of Florida's
largest floodplain and largest
national forest."
- "These purchases help
protect habitats in the Big
Bend Seagrass Aquatic
Preserve and a highly pro-
ductive seafood fishery in the
Apalachicola River and Bay,"
said George Roberts,
Governing Board Chair. "We
have also enhanced protec-
tion along the upper
Apalachicola in an area held
largely by private landown-
ers, and a significant seg-
hient of the middle
Ochlockonee bordering the
Apalachicola National
Forest."
'The District will reserve
mixed bottomland hardwood
and other wetland forest
habitats on both properties
and exclude them from har-
I


vest, except in a catastrophic
event," added William 0.
Cleckley, Director of the
Division of Land Management
and Acquisition. "These pur-
chases help fulfill our five-
year work plans for both
rivers in keeping with state
legislated environmental land
buying goals of the Florida
Forever Act."
The Apalachicola River
tract, located six miles north
of Blountstown, will protect
significant backwater slough
systems and two miles of
river frontage. The
Ochlockonee. River tract,
located between Highway 67
and the Apalachicola
National Forest, includes
over one mile, of meandering
river frontage and important
mixed bottomland hardwood
forest habitat.
The purchase agreement
for the Apalachicola River
tract will permit the owner to
subdivide his land twice into
three parcels with one resi-
dence and out buildings, not
to exceed 43,560 square feet
of impervious surface on


each parcel. The owner will
also be able to harvest the
pines and pine straw from an
area not to exceed 20 percent
of the pine plantation, and
establish a food plot of not
more than 75 acres.
Conservation rights of the
Ochlockonee River tract were
purchased from two
landowners, one of whom has
decided not to subdivide his


homes on it. The other
landowner is able to subdi-
vide into three parcels and
build one residence and asso-
ciated buildings on each, not
to exceed 43,560 square feet
in impervious surfaces. Both
owners also retain rights to
continue silviculture or tree-
farming activities on portions
planted in pines, and to
establish food plots of no


property, nor to build any more than 90 acres.

Honor Roll cont'd


The hard work of the teach-
ers and district level
staff,along with the students
paid off.
District grades are based
on the number of points
earned and include the per-
centage of total students in
the district that meet high
standards in reading, math,
writing and science on the
FCAT. Another factor in the
calculation of points earned
is the percentage of students
making learning gains in
reading and math on the
FCAT. The percentage of stu-


dents that are in the lowest
quartile that make learning
gains in reading and math on
the FCAT is also a factor in
the calculation of the district
grading process.
