Holiday









week
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Looking for some deals
on back-to-school clothes
and supplies? This is the
week to get them.
Florida's Sales Tax
Holiday week kicked off
last Friday, Aug. 4, and
will continue through
Monday, Aug.13. Many
retailers are taking this
opportunity to reduce
prices even further to
entice customers as they
prepare for the first day of
school.
"The sales tax holiday
is a great way to save on
clothing, books and
school supplies," says
Governor Charlie Crist."
Books or clothing that sell
for $50 or less and school,
supplies priced at $10 or
less are exempt from
sales tax. I am grateful to
the Florida Legislature for
continuing this great tra-
dition in our state."

Woods new city manager


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
After going through a second interview
process in less than six months, the
Blountstown City Council has hired anoth-
er new city manager.
James A. Woods of Southport, who was
the number two ranked candidate for the
job, accepted the position after it was
turned down by the Council's first pick, G.
Parrish Barwick, of Crawfordville. Sources
say Barwick lived 40 miles from town and
did not wish to relocate his family.
Woods, who previously served as the
town administrator for the City of Cedar
Grove, was on the job Friday and says he is
eager to face the challenges ahead of him.
"I think there is a lot of opportunity here
in the City of Blountstown," Woods tells The
County Record. "I'm still trying to get my


hands around everything, finding out about
the programs underway and things we need
to look at in the future. I'm trying to assess
our manpower situation to better under-
stand how to respond to any activities in the
city and try to be more effective. I know one
of the current issues here lately has been
power. We're trying to focus on minimizing
disruptions in power."
Woods, who is a single father with three
children, says he is relocating his family to
Blountstown.
"I think he's going to be a good mix with
the City of Blountstown," says Police Chief
Glenn Kimbrel. "He comes with good experi-
ence in the city manager business. He's
already on board trying to move the city for-
ward and bring some fresh, good ideas."
The next City Council meeting is set for
Tuesday, August 14, at 6 p.m. at the Angle
Street Complex.


CRIME


Shiver



indicted


for ex's



murder
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
An Altha man who ran for
the district 2 seat on the
Calhoun County
Commission last year has
been indicted for the murder
of his estranged wife.
According to the Jackson
County Clerk of Courts
Office, a grand jury handed
down the indictment against
Julian "Jack" Shiver, 44, fol-
lowing a hearing on July 31.
He is charged with first
degree murder, attempted
first degree murder, burglary
while armed with a firearm,
and shooting into an occu-
pied dwelling.
Back in April, Shiver was
accused of breaking into the
Cottondale residence of Paul
Barber, Jr., 52. Felisia
Shiver, 45, of Altha, was
reportedly inside the home
with Barber when her
estranged husband burst
inside. Authorities 'say an
argument ensued and Jack
Shiver allegedly shot his wife
at least once in the head.
Barber exchanged gunfire
with Jack Shiver. Barber was
not hit, but Shiver was' shot
twice in the torso. Felisia
died a week later from her
injuries. Jack recovered.
A pre-trial hearing is set
for August 21.

enrollment period begins
today and continues through
August 31, 2007.
"Our small employers are
the backbone of this state
and I want to make sure they
take advantage of this once-
a-year opportunity to get
health coverage," said CFO


Sink. "There is no other time
of year that coverage is guar-
anteed for the self-employed,
so they should act now to get
insurance or review their
current policy."
The open enrollment peri-

Governor Charlie Crist has
announced a partnership
between Progress Energy and
Biomass Gas & Electric to
build the largest waste-wood
biomass plant in the United
States in Liberty County.
"I commend Progress
Energy and Biomass Gas &
Electric for their pro-active
leadership in implementing
renewable fuel technology,"
said Governor Crist. "Energy
diversification is vital to
Florida's economic develop-
ment and security and gov-
ernment can't do it alone."
Biomass Gas & Electric of
Atlanta, Georgia, will build a
renewable energy power
plant in North Florida.
Progress Energy of St.
Petersburg signed a long-
term contract to purchase
electricity generated by the
plant. The facility uses a
gasification process that con-

Construction has begun
on SR 73 between SR 71 and
SR 20 in Calhoun County.
According to the Florida
Department, of
Transportation, preliminary
work includes erecting ero-
sion control, installing con-
struction signs and traffic
control devices.
Construction improve-
ments included in this $15-
million, 15.5 mile project are:
milling and resurfacing,
widening the road and


yard trimmings, tree bark
and wood knots to electricity.
"Reducing Florida's green-
house gases and increasing
energy efficiency is necessary
to protect Florida's economy,
the health of our people, and
the quality of our environ-
ment," said Secretary
Michael W. Sole of the Florida
Department of
Environmental Protection.
"Expanding the use of clean,
sustainable energy is a nec-
essary step as we move for-
ward toward that goal."
The plant will generate 75
megawatts of electricity, pro-
viding power to approximate-
ly 46,000 homes. The clean
electricity generated at the
new plant will save nearly 5
million tons of coal over a 20-
year period.
The partnership will gen-
erate a $150 million new
investment in renewable
energy and bring additional


adding a 5' wide paved shoul-
der. Drainage improvements
and new bridge rails at
Juniper Creek are also
included.

The contractor, C. W.
Roberts Contracting has 580
days to complete the project.
Motorists are reminded to
use caution while traveling
through the construction
zone; speeding violation dou-
ble when workers are pres-


high-value jobs to North

Editor:
Calhoun County taxpay-
ers, when your taxes go up,
you have three people to
blame - Willie Brown, Danny
Hassig, and Grant Williams..
These three School Board
members voted to raise your
taxes 2 mils.
One of the board members
said that the raise of 2 mils
would not cost -tax payers
one cent more. I always
thought, that I was pretty
good in math, but I must
have missed a class or two
that taught Danny Hassig
ways to not pay more taxes
when the millage is raised
two mils.
By the way, it raised taxes
on our two nursing homes,


$8,000 on on6 and $3,800 on
the other forever. Who do
you think will have to pay for
this?
This tax will not affect me
much, but I checked on a few
of my friends and five pay
$10,900 more each year - an
average of $2,180 each.
I don't think three people
should have the power to
raise taxes. I think it should
be a county-wide vote.
Thanks to Board members
Kelly King and Tim Smith
who voted no to more taxes
(90% of voters would vote).
Respectfully,
Morrell Bailey

Safe hunting


is NO accident


Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission

MyFWC.com


With the dog-days of
summer upon us, it's hard
to think about hunting.
But if you're between the
ages of 16 and 31, and
haven't yet taken the
state's hunter safety class -
now's just the time to be
thinking about it. Many of
these classes, offered
statewide, fill up fast dur-
ing hunting season while
people scramble to get cer-
tified. Summer months
offer smaller class sizes
and make for a better
opportunity for students to
attend because they often
have more free time.
Everyone 16 years old or
older and born after May
31, 1975, must complete
the FWC's hunter safety
requirement before they
can buy a Florida hunting
license.
There is an exception
though. A law passed last
year allows individuals to
hunt under the supervision
of a licensed hunter, 21
years old or older, without
having to complete the
state's hunter safety certifi-
cation.
It's called the "Hunter
Safety Mentoring
Exemption," and enables
those persons to purchase
a Florida hunting license
and hunt on a one-year
trial basis. It's designed to
encourage experienced
hunters to teach novice
hunters about our sport
and is a great incentive for
getting more people to give
hunting a try. Individuals
taking advantage of this
would have to pass a
hunter safety class to be
eligible to hunt the follow-
ing year.
If you're a youngster and
already hunt, I suggest you
go ahead and take a hunter
safety class before you turn
16. Of course, until then,
you may hunt under adult
supervision.


You can register for a
hunter safety class by
going to
MyFWC.com/huntersafety
or by contacting your near-
est FWC regional office.
Also, there are two versions
for your convenience.
There's the traditional
course, which is 12 hours
of classroom instruction
plus a four-hour "field
day," or you can opt for
taking the online or CD-
ROM version at home. But,
you'll still have to sign up
for the "skills day" part.
The traditional course is
offered during four week-
days or on a
Saturday/Sunday. If you
take it during the week,
each session is three hours
and offered after normal
working hours. On the
weekend, you'll spend eight
hours Saturday and four
hours Sunday morning in
the classroom. The
remainder of Sunday you'll
move over to the shooting
range to complete your cer-
tification.
The first thing you'll
learn about taking the tra-
ditional class is Florida's
many hunting laws. An
FWC law enforcement offi-
cer gives this introduction.
Volunteer hunter safety
instructors teach the
remaining curriculum.
You'll be taught ethics,
hunter responsibiliK, parts
of firearms, various hunt-
ing lingo and the proper
way to shoot. You'll discov-
er the differences between
various bullets, calibers
and gauges; how to identify
game animals; and learn
wildlife conservation and
best management practices
for native species. In addi-
tion, you'll find out about
outdoor survival tech-
niques and learn how to
administer first aid in the
field. Archery and funda-
mentals of bowhunting also


By Tony Young
are taught.
In your last hour in the
classroom, you'll be given a
standardized test of true
and false and multiple
choice questions. All you
need is to score an 80 per-
cent or better, and then you
get to move outside to the
shooting range for the field
day portion.
This part takes about
four hours. During that
time you'll get to shoot clay
pigeons with a shotgun,
practice your archery skills
and target practice with a
.22-caliber rifle. You'll also
receive a muzzleloader
demonstration, where
you'll have the chance to
shoot one if you'd like. All
guns, bows, targets and
ammo are provided. All
you have to do is take aim.
After you complete the
field day, you'll be given
your hunter safety card. At
that point you can pur-
chase a Florida hunting
license and get ready for
opening day.

If you choose to take the
hunter safety class online
or by CD-ROM, you'll learn
all of the above-mentioned
material and be given a
practice test to prepare you
for the last segment - the
skills day.
Saturday skill days take
about five hours to com-
plete. You'll learn much of
what is taught during the
traditional course, includ-
ing hunting laws and
ethics, how to handle
firearms safely, when to
take a shot and where to
take aim. Then you'll get to
shoot -on the range and be
given the same standard-
ized test.
Register today to take a
hunter safety class 'cause
the 2007-08 hunting sea-
son's just around the cor-
ner. Remember - safe
hunting is NO accident!

Florida fish kills common



now, but need reporting


Reports of dead fish, rang-
ing from a few individuals to
hundreds of thousands, have
prompted dozens of calls per
week to the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) this sum-
mer.
Apprehensive callers to
the FWC's Fish Kill Hotline
worry something must be ter-
ribly wrong; others just want
to know the causes.
Fortunately, the mecha-
nism at the root of most sum-
mertime fish kills in brackish
estuaries, freshwater lakes
and man-made retention
ponds is well understood by
scientsts. Ironically, ,a'gack,
of sunshine in the Sunshine
State is where problems
begin. The process starts
with overcast skies, hot sum-
mer days and rainy weather.
Low water levels, brought on
by drought, add to the mix.
Most of the oxygen fish
breathe is created when
waterborne microscopic
plants use sunlight to pro-
duce and add dissolved oxy-
gen to the water, a process
known as photosynthesis.
But when overcast skies per-
sist for several days, there is
often not enough sunlight to
power the oxygen-making
process that supports fish
life.
Heavy rain and wind from
thunderstorms adds to the
problem by stirring up bot-
tom sediments that muddy
the water, further reducing
sunlight penetration in the
water column. Rainwater
runoff also washes large
amounts of decaying plant
and animal material into the


water body. In the decay
process, bacteria use dis-
solved oxygen in the water to
break down plant and animal
matter, further dropping oxy-
gen levels.
"If these conditions per-
sist, and dissolved oxygen
levels drop for extended peri-
ods, fish suffocate," said Fred
Cross, FWC fisheries biolo-
gist.
In short, during extended
periods of overcast, rainy or
cloudy weather, the biological
system uses dissolved oxygen
faster than it can produce it.
Heavy weather aggravates
the situation by creating and
intensi ag all Lhe conditions
that lower dissolved oxygen
levels in the water.
The good news is that
most water bodies don't suf-
fer repeat performances every
year. In -fact, most" water
bodies go years without suf-
fering a major fish kill.
"In spite of summer fish
kills, most Florida lakes are
in relatively healthy shape
and fish populations remain
stable. Angling success gen-
erally is not affected over the
long haul, even after events
that might appear., serious to
the untrained eye," said
Cross, who is also an avid
angler.
Still, it's important for
biologists like Cross to keep
track of the location and
extent of fish kills in natural
lakes and estuaries to see if
there are serious, problems
developing in an ecosystem
that might require investiga-
tion or restorative measures.
Floridians can report fish
kills in natural water bodies


to the FWC's Fish Kill Hotline
at 1-800-636-0511, or online
at MyFWC.com by clicking on
"Contact FWC." It is not nec-
essary to report fish kills in
man-made retention ponds.

West Nile Virus - Protect
Yourself and Your Horse!
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging horse own-
ers to remember to vaccinate
their animals against Eastern
Equine Encephalitis (EEE)
and West Nile Virus (WNV) in
the wake of Centers for
Disease Control warnings'
about a potential West Nile
epidemic. He is also remind-
ing people to take precau-
tions against mosquito bites.
The Centers for Disease
Control says the number of
human West Nile Virus cases
in the United States is nearly
four times higher than what
it was this time last year. The


06 Chevy Malibu LT

Was $16,995.. NOW $13,988 .. OR $238 Mo.


Horse owners
are urged to
check with
their veteri-
narian to
make sure
their animals
have received
current vacci-
nations and


booster shots
against WNV and EEE, and
that these shots are kept up
to date. Bronson says
Floridians can protect them-
selves against mosquito-
borne disease by following a
few simple steps:
* Limit time outside during
dusk and dawn when mos-
quitoes are most active.
* Wear light-colored, long-
sleeved shirts and long pants
to cover skin when outside
between dusk and dawn.
* Eliminate standing water
in yards, such as in bird-
baths, kiddie pools, and old
tires. Stagnant water is an
excellent breeding ground for
mosquitoes.
* Use insect repellent. For
questions about repellent
use, the following website has
answers about repellent safe-
ty and use for children and
adults. http://www.cdc.gov/
ncidod/dvbid/westnile/qa/i
nsect_repellent.htm
* Keep window screens in
good repair.
* Clean out rain gutters
and keep them unclogged to
avoid pockets of standing

ACT test registration


deadline is Aug. 10


Science teachers learn new lessons
Our Calhoun County school teachers have been busy over the summer months, gaining valuable experience to imple-
ment in their classrooms. Grades 3-5 teachers from Altha, Blountstown, and Carr schools attended a five-day science
workshop July 30 -.August 3 at the Calhoun County Public Library. Dr. Donna Szpyrka, science consultant, guided the work-
shop participants as they worked on writing curriculum maps for science and planned science units with individual les-
"son plans using the Sunshine State Standards benchmarks. Even though the workshop included a.lot of hard work, the
participants also had a lot of fun, as the workshop included hands-on experimenting. These teachers are looking forward
to implementing their designed units into their classrooms and seeing an increase in achievement in science,


The next ACT test will be
administered on September
15, 2007. Students who
wish to take the college
admission and placement
exam must register by
August 10 - the deadline for
having the registration post-
marked. There is a late reg-
istration postmark deadline
of August 24; an extra fee is
charged for late registrations.
Students can register online
at www.actstudent.org , or
registration forms can be
picked up at high school
counseling offices.
The cost is $30 for the tra-
ditional ACT and $44.50 for
the ACT Plus Writing. Some
colleges require ACT's option-
al Writing Test score, but
many don't, so students
should find out the require-
ments of prospective colleges
before registering for the
exam. ACT scores are
accepted by all major four-


year colleges and universities
across the United States.

As the school year begins,
Panhandle Area Health
Network, Inc. (PAHN) is
launching its annual Back-
to-School Campaign . in
Marianna, FL to encourage
',parents with uninsured chil-
'dren to put enrolling them in
.Florida KidCare at the top of
-their back-to-school check-
list.
"Kids who have health
,'care coverage are better pre-
.pared to learn in school,"
-said Pamela McDaniel,
-Community Outreach Liaison
-for PAHN. "That's why
'-enrolling uninsured children
-in Florida KidCare should be
a top priority for parents as
-they prepare to send their
kids back to school' The cov-
erage offered through Florida
KidCare means health secu-
rity for kids and peace of
Mind for parents."
There are nearly 715,000
uninsured children " in
Florida, and most of them are
eligible for low-cost or free
health care coverage offered
through Florida KidCare.
Many families are not aware
that their children may qual-
ify for coverage. In Florida, a
family of four can earn up to


$41,300 a year or more and
qualify for low-cost or free
Florida KidCare.
PAHN and its partners will
be stepping up their efforts to
increase the number of chil-
dren enrolled in Florida
KidCare. Kicking off the
back-to-school campaign will
be a news conference and
enrollment fair on August 10,
2007. The enrollment fair will
be held at the Hudnall
Building (located in the front
of Jackson Hospital. The
enrollment fair will begin at
10:00 AM (CST) and last till
noon.
Children enrolled in
Florida KidCare will receive
comprehensive ""benefit's,
including routine"' checkups,
hearing and vision screen-
ings, prescriptions and hos-
pitalization.
The comprehensive cover-
age offered through Florida
KidCare helps keep Florida's
kids healthy. Parents are
encouraged to find out if their
kids are eligible.
To find out if your family is
eligible for low-cost or free
health care coverage, call
toll-free 1-888-540-KIDS.
The call is free.


Kids with Health Care Coverage

Are Better Prepared to Learn
* MOST children in America's classrooms who are unin-
sured are eligible for low-cost or free children's health care
coverage
* Half of all uninsured children have not hod a well-child
visit in the post year
* Uninsured children are less likely to receive proper med-
Ical care for sore throats, earaches and asthma-common
childhood Illnesses that are often the cause of school
absences.

Kurt Busch
Born: Aug 4, 1978
Sponsor: Miller Lite
Crew Chief: Roy McCauley
Car: Dodge
Biography:
Kurt Busch began his career in the Craftsman
Truck Series. He started a controversy when Jack
Roush invited him to race in the Winston Cup
Series without any experience in the "junior"
Bush Grand National Series. Busch began rac-
ing on the Winston Cup circuit in 2000, at the age
of 21. He finished 48th in the standings that year.
Busch ran for rookie of the year honors in 2001,
driving 35 of 36 races with no wins, although Kurt
collected 3 top 5's and 6 top 10's that year. He
also got a pole qualifying position that year, at
Darlington Raceway. In 2004, Busch won the
Nextel Cup by 8 points over Jimmie Johnson and
16 points over Jeff Gordon. In 2005, Kurt's broth-
er Kyle Busch joined him on the Nextel Cup dock-
et. Busch's 2005 season was cut short by two
races when he was suspended by his team owner
after being pulled over for suspicion of drunken
driving and cited for reckless driving. Busch left
Roush Racing and joined Penske Racing South in
2006. Last year, Kurt struggled with his new team
and failed to'make the Chase for the Cup.


Robby Gordon was suspended from the Nextel Cup at '
Pocono on Sunday, after officials claimed that he intentional- \
ly knocked Marcos Ambrose out of Saturday's Busch Series
race and refused to pull off the track when ordered. Gordon
said the way he reacted was a result of the call the officials
made. NASCAR spokesman Kerry Tharp said the rules
allow the officials to make the call if they feel that the driver poses a threat to the order
on the racetrack. According to Gordon, NASCAR will allow him to compete in the
Busch Series and Nextel Cup races next week at Watkins Glen.

Kurt Busch won the Pennsylvania 500 at Pocono
Raceway on Sunday. He led 175 laps out of 200 laps
which was a Pocono record. The victory raised Kurt into
the 12th and final spot of the Chase with only five races
left before the championship begins. It was his first victo-
ry in 51 races, with his last win occurring back on March
26, 2006. "I feel like a newborn," Busch said. "I'm ready
to run for the Chase." Eamhardt finished second and
Denny Hamlin finished third. "Kurt had the best car all
day," Eamhardt said. Points leader Jeff Gordon and
Jimmie Johnson also finished in the top five. Tony Stewart
came in sixth, ending his two-race winning streak.

BHS celebrates a century of education
The current Blountstown High School campus has been a place of education in Calhoun
County for 100+ years. While our school system 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 celebrate Calhoun County High
School or "Calco High", which later became Blountstown Elementary, Blountstown Junior High
and finally Blountstown High, and the accomplishments of its students. Pictured above is the BHS
many former students remember. Built in 1922, the old high school was torn down in 1984 to
make way for a new facility.

Rahal-Miller Nissan


gives 300zx to Chipola


MARIANNA-Rahal-Miller
Nissan in conjunction with
Nissan North America recent-
ly donated a 300ZX Twin
Turbo to the Chipola College
Automotive Technology
Program.
The vehicle is equipped
with advanced technology,
including: twin turbos with
dual intercoolers, four-wheel
steering, active electronical-
ly-controlled adjustable sus-
pension, automatic climate
controls and coil over plug
ignition.
Automotive instructor
John Gardner says, "The
advanced technology in this
vehicle gives our students the
opportunity to train on the
latest systems and be better
prepared for the workplace,
not to mention that all our
students just simply love the
car."
Gardner says, 'Technology
in the automotive industry is
moving at lighting speed and
there is a shortage of trained
technicians."
According to the Florida
Department of : Labor
Handbook, the job outlook
for automotive technicians is
expected to grow 12 to 15


percent over the next decade.
The outlook for long-term job
security also is positive, as
the automotive repair indus-
try has historically unaffect-
ed by general economic
trends and should thus be
able to survive any economic
downturns.
Entry level pay ranges
from $21,000 to $32,000
with mid-range technicians
earning up to $55,000 and
experienced technicians
earning up to $72,000.
Master mechanics can expect
salaries in the $58,000 to
$108,000 range.
Gardner says, "Rahal
Nissan and our entire adviso-
ry committee of automotive
professionals across the five-
county support our program
and provide us the opportu-
nity to train students at the
high level that industry
expects and so desperately
needs."

Technology Program is certi-
fied by the National

Chipola Artist Series opens



Aug. 28 with 'Musical Soiree'


Season tickets for the 2007-08 Chipola College Artist Series
are now on sale, in the college Fine Arts Building, located
behind the Arts Center, through Aug. 29. The five-event series
opens Aug. 28 with "A Memorable Musical Soiree" featuring
Chipola's music faculty.


Scallop Festival-


an Antique Boat Show for
everyone to enjoy also. Board
Secretary ,Pollyanna Huie has
this to say about the site of
this year's festival, "this loca-
tion has so many wonderful
amenities and potential to
make the festival one that
can include so much more".
The Food Court is spon-
sored by Progress Energy of
Florida. The Port St. Joe
Lions Club will do the honors
of cooking the scallops for the
fourth year in a row. This
dedicated -group does a fan-
tastic job while enjoying
themselves in the process.
This year they will be raising
money to reach their commit-
ment goal of $50,000 for the
Sacred Heart Hospital.
Foundation.
"We struggled trying to
cook the scallops before the
Lions Club- became our offi-
cial cooks. Trying to keep
enough cooked and fresh and
hot just was wearing us out."


The Chamber was awarded a
grant from the St. Joe
Community Foundation in
2004 which made our job so
much easier. The scallops
can now be cooked inside an
air-conditioned trailer and
served to our customers "in
style"!
The festival, organized by
the Gulf County Chamber of
Commerce, is made possible
through support of the fol-
lowing sponsors: City of Port
St. Joe, Progress Energy,
Coastal Community Bank,
Port St. Joe Lions Club,
Sunset Coastal Grill, 13 Mile
Seafood, Beach Realty, Boyer
Signs, Carpet Country,
Duren's Piggly Wiggly, Mexico
Beach CDC, Panache Tent
and Event, Raffield Fisheries,
