Teens injured when four wheelers


collide in Bristol Friday afternoon
Two Bristol teens were injured Friday afternoon when their four wheelers collided. According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, Rodney Tyler Miller, 19, was westbound on Gobbler Court off Turkey Creek Road just after 5 p.m.
on a 2007 Suzuki ATV with Charles Monroe McDaniel, 15, behind him on a 2007 Honda. Miller reportedly began
fishtailing, leaving 90 feet of furrow marks and causing a dust cloud. McDaniel got sand in his eyes and was
unable to see. as Miller stopped in front of him, resulting in the collision. Miller was thrown 15 feet while McDaniel
was tossed 12 feet. Miller, pictured above being treated by emergency medical workers, was flown to Tallahassee
Memorial in serious condition. McDaniel was treated for minor injuries at Calhoun-Liberty Hospital. Trdoper Jason
King is investigating. Charges are pending against both drivers.


SUPERINTENDENT NEVES EXTENDS WELCOME



Schools open Monday
o peidI


Start your engines, the
race is on! The Calhoun
County School District has
taken
a pit
stop
for the
sum -
mer to
gear
up for
this
school
year.
We're ,
bacin the MARY SUE NEVES
racing,
circuit, and we're
Accelerating for Excellence
in the 2007-2008 school
year!
The pit crew, made up of
district administrators and
staff, has been working furi-
ously and tirelessly to pro-
vide the needed support
and maintenance to get our
school back on the race,
track so no momentum is
lost from our summer pit
stop. Coming out of the pit
stop, our drivers, school
principals and teachers,
and support staff will skill-
fully maneuver our schools
successfully toward the fin-
ish line to produce a win-
ning race. With champion
drivers at the 'wheel, we'll
pass that checkered flag for
the win of 'A', along with
Annual Yearly Progress.
Our school district's
theme for this new school
year is Accelerating for
Excellence. We are extreme-
ly proud of our past accom-
plishments, and are ready
to meet the challenges of
this new school year, which
begins for students on
Monday, August 20th.
To get our new year
started, our county-wide
program this year included
guest speakers who shared
their personal experiences
of success when working
with students. Speakers
included Dr. Richard


Ramsey, an inspirational
speaker who has 28 years
educational experience. He
specializes in working with
difficult students and shar-
ing strategies for success.
He focuses on making a dif-
ference in the lives of chil-
dren. He, is highly respected
across the country as a
youth advocate.
Another guest speaker
was Dr. Debbie Culbreth,
principal of Ocean City
Elementary School in Fort
Walton Beach. Under her
direction, her school
improved greatly in the per-
centage of students with
disabilities performing on
grade level. She shared her
strategies on making sure
all children learn, which is
our goal.
A third speaker sharing'
\with us was Holly Dincman,
Esq. As an attorney who
works with our surrounding
school districts' to solve
legal problems and issues,
she shared valuable infor-
mation with us on keeping
on track with legal issues.
After lunch, which was pro-
vided by the administrators
and district staff, everyone
was entertained by the tal-
ented Rivertown Girls.
I am proud to announce,
that once again this year,
our district received a grade
of 'A'. This year, we were one
of 19 Florida districts earn-
ing that title. Out of the four
years a district grade has
been given, we have
received it all four years! We
are one out of 12 districts
who have accomplished
that feat. The Florida
Department of Education
calculates the district grade
using student performance
on the FCAT, student learn-
ing gains, and the learning
gains of the lowest 25%.
This accomplishment comes
through the dedication and
hard work of our students,
teachers, . parents, and
administrators. I congratu-


:late everyone involved for
this distinguished accom-
plishment.
The Department of
Education continues to
raise the bar on the stan-
dards of achievement and
I'm proud to say, our dis-
trict continues to meet the
challenge. Carr, Altha, and
Blountstown Elementary
Schools earned an 'A'. Along
with an 'A', Carr also made
Adequate Yearly Progress
(AYP). Blountstown Middle
School dropped from an 'A'
to a 'C', and Blountstown
High dropped from a 'C' to a
'D'. We will be working hard
this year to improve where
growth is needed.
Over the summer, our
teachers participated in
extensive training , to take
back to their classrooms to
enhance their teaching.
They have attended reading,
science, math, and writing
workshops. Through these


workshops, they have
gained valuable training
that will benefit their stu-
dents' learning.
Our principals have been
busy this summer inter-
viewing and' hiring highly
qualified teachers to add to
our staff. Eighteen new
teachers have been hired to
fill vacant positions. We are
constantly working to meet
the State's Class Size
Reduction mandate.
Something new in our
district this year is an inno-
vative program for senior
students who are interested
in earning certification for
employment in the comput-
er industry. The program,
Computer Systems
Technology, will be offered
through dual enrollment in
conjunction with Chipola
Jr. College. Upon comple-
tion of the program, stu-

HEALTH DEPTF



Odum



speaks



toBCC
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Calhoun County
.Commissioners heard from
former Health Department
Administrator Dave Odum
Tuesday night, as well as the
woman who asked him to
resign.
Dr. Lillian Rivera, the new
Deputy State Health Officer,
met with the board at their
request and gave them three
basic options: hire a new
administrator, eliminate
services, or share an admin-
istrator with Liberty County.
The latter has been done
since Odum was asked to
resign earlier this summer.
Commissioner Jim
Pickron made a motion,
demanding Odum be rein-
stated. It was seconded by
Commissioner Danny Ray
Wise, but failed to pass with
.the other three commission-
ers voting against it. By
meeting's end, they agreed to
continue sharing an admin-
istrator with Liberty County.
"I'm disappointed," Odum
tells The County Record. "But
I do appreciate the support I
was given by the communi-
ty."

The County Record, AUGUST 15, 2007, Page 4 .


Dear Editor,
The Family Affair has
passed for another year. Six
hundred children were pro-
vided school supplies, and
over 200 families enjoyed the
festivities at the W.T. Neal
Civic Center on July 28.
Many individuals helped
to make this, the tenth year,
a success. The Calhoun
County Children's Coalition
would like to take time to
thank all of the agencies,
businesses, organizations
and volunteers who assisted
us this year. There are too
many to name in this letter,
but all of them should feel a
special pride when witness-
ing the joy that was brought
to the many children and
their families that participat-
ed in the event.
A special thank you to the
Calhoun County Board of
County Commissioners, the
Calhoun County School
Board, the City of
Blountstown, the employees
of Oglesby, and Rivertown
Community Church for their
generous donations.
There is one individual
that we would like to
acknowledge. Jane Jordan,
formerly with the Calhoun
County Library and the Early
Learning Coalition, 'has
retired after many years of
service to the Children's
Coalition and the communi-
ty. Thank you Jane for your
dedication and hard work!
Sincerely,
Peggy Deason-Howland,
Chair, Calhoun County
Children's Coalition
Dear Editor:
The fact that there are
nearly 715,000 uninsured
children in Florida is dis-
tressing 'to me.
I have worked in Jackson
County as a health care pro-
fessional for over 26 years.
As a professional nurse I
have worked in public health
providing a variety of services
to families. I can still recall
the weekly schedule of spe-
cial clinics to serve babies
and children of families that
did not have an alternative to
well-child, care and non-
emergent primary care other
than the health department
public health nurses. Dr.
Sarah Schulz is fondly
remembered coming over
every Thursday morning to
provide medical oversight for
our services. Later as the


nursing director for Dozer
School for Boys, I saw young
incarcerated boys from frag-
mented families where health
care was not affordable or
valued or both. As an
Advanced Registered Nurse
Practitioner I have provided
medical and advanced prac-
tice nursing services to chil-
dren and families in the pri-
mary care setting, emergency
room, community class-
rooms, and as a consultant
to various organizations.
Throughout the years,
regardless of the setting, I
have been a professional wit-
ness to the generational neg-
ative outcomes that can
result from lack of quality
health care. - '
I am saddened that people
in this country suffer
because they do not have
health insurance. The fact
that 9 million American chil-
dren could be heading back
to school this fall without an
annual checkup means there
might be a generation of
youth that is underachieving.
These students may be driv-
en to distraction when they
cannot see the blackboard or
hear instruction in the class-
room.
I am part of a health care
system that is made up of
haves and have-nots.
Families that 'have health
insurance have access to the
best medical care in the
. world, a vast array of medical
technologies and services.
Parents with uninsured chil-
dren, however, are the have-
nots. They are forced to delay
or forgo getting medical care
or prescription drugs for
themselves and their chil-
dren. Many families also
report prohibiting their kids
from participating in after-
school activities for fear of
injury and the costly medical
bills that may come as result.
The good news is most
uninsured children are eligi-
ble for low-cost or free health
care coverage right now.
Medicaid and the State
Children's Health Insurance
Program (SCHIP) are avail-
able. Many uninsured fami-
lies in Florida do not realize
that their children might be
eligible for health care cover-
age through Florida KidCare.
This comprehensive low-cqst.
or free program co|ers doctor
visits, checkups, immuniza-
tions, hospital visits, surgery,
prescriptions, emergencies,
vision, hearing, dental and


mental health. Families of
four earning up to $41,300 a
year may be eligible for this
low-cost or free comprehen-
sive coverage.
Being uninsured can take
a staggering toll on children.
Without insurance, children
are more likely to miss the
regular checkups and pre-
ventive care that prepares
them to do their best in
school. According to the
Urban Institute's analysis of
the National Health Interview
Survey, nearly half (48%) of
low-income uninsured chil-
dren have not had a well-
child visit in the past year,
and almost one-third of these
children do not have a pedia-
trician or another regular
source of care.
Many of the parents of
uninsured children I have
met are hardworking men
and women with full- or part-
time jobs. Either they work
for businesses that do not
offer health benefits or they
simply cannot afford the ben-
efits that are offered. For
many of them, the costs of
insurance and medical care
are weighed against equally
essential needs like food, util-
ities, and rent. No one in this
great nation should have to
choose between a roof over
their heads and health cover-
age for their family.
The medical professionals
who work with me are not the
bad guys. Almost every
health professional I
encounter is generous and
caring. The problem is that
the health care system in this
country has become unaf-
fordable for too many hard-
working families.
It will take each one of us,
people both inside and out-
side the health care profes-
sions, to work together to
make high-quality health
care ,accessible for everyone.
A first step toward this goal is
to join the efforts around
Panhandle Area Health
Network's Florida KidCare
Back-to-School Campaign.
Families that would like to
learn more about Florida
KidCare can call 1-888-540-
KIDS. The call is free.
Operators can answer ques-
tions about the program and
begin the. application
process. Together, we can
help get Florida's kids the
coverage they need!
Thank you.

just around the corner. The
Tigers host Liberty County at
home at 7:00 on Friday,

two a day practices started

This year the COMMUNITY
WIDE PEP RALLY is set for
Tuesday, August 24th, at
7:00 at the BHS auditorium.
This is a special year at
B.H.S., we will be celebrating


our 100th year anniversary
and honoring the 30th year of
the 1977 State Champions.
The coaches and any players
that can attend will be hon-
ored at the pep rally on the

This year's group of play-
ers worked extremely hard
over the course' of the sum-
mer in preparation for the
upcoming season. Our dis-
trict changed this year. We
are still in District 2-2B,
some of the other members
changed. Vernon and Bonifay
moved to District 1-2B, and
Florida High moved into our
district this year. This year
we have four teams in our

and Bozeman.
The Tigers have enjoyed a
lot of success over the last
several football seasons. We
are going for our 5th cornsec-
utive district title this year
starting in 2003- 2006. The
Tigers have reeled off an
unbelievable run during the
regular season of now 33
straight regular season wins
without a defeat- WOW! The
last regular season defeat
came in the 2003 season.
This year, the Tigers face a
very difficult schedule with
some old rivalries added and
some new ones on the sched-
ule. It should be a'very excit-
ing season.

Family Night gives parents
ideas for working with their

There are always excellent

would appreciate your help.

'PUBLIC RELEASE 2007-08

THE CALHOUN COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD
announces its policy for
Free and Reduced Price Meals for students under the

NATIONAL SCHOOL LUNCH AND

BREAKFAST PROGRAMS.
Any interested person may review a copy of the policy by contacting the
Calhoun County School Board, 20859 Central Avenue East, RM-G20,
Blountstown, Florida 32424, phone 674-5927.

Household size and income criteria will be used to determine eligibility. These criteria can be
found on the second page of this document. Children from families whose income is at or below
the levels shown may be eligible for Free or Reduced Price Meals. An application can not be
approved unless it contains complete eligibility information. Once approved, meal benefits are
good for an entire year. You need not notify the organization of changes in income and
household size.

Application forms are being sent to all homes with a letter to parents or guardians. To apply for
Free or Reduced Price Meals, households must complete the application and return it to school.
Additional copies are available at the principal's office in each school. The information provided
on the application will be used for the purpose of determining eligibility and may be verified at any
time during the school year. Applications may be submitted at any time during the year.

Households that receive Food Stamps or TANF (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families) are
required to list on the application only the child's name, Food Stamp/TANF case number, and
signature of adult household member.

Foster children imay receive benefits based on the child's personal income regardless of the
income of thq household.

Households with children who are considered migrants, homeless, or runaway should contact the
district liaison, Michael Johnson at 674-8734, ext. 225.

For the purpose of determining household size, deployed service members are considered a part
of the household. Families should include the names of the deployed service members on their
application. Report only that portion of the deployed service member's income made available to
them or on their behalf to the family. Additionally, a housing allowance that is part of the Military
Housing Privatization Initiative is not to be included as income.

All other households must provide the following information listed on the application:

*Total household income listed by amount received 'and type of income and how often the income
is received (wages, child support, etc.) received by each household member.
* Names of all household members;
* Signature of an adult household member certifying the information provided is correct; and
* Social security number of the adult signing the application or the world "NONE" for this
household member if he or she does not have a social security number.

If a household member becomes unemployed or if the household size changes, the school should
be contacted. Children of parents or guardians who become unemployed should also contact the
school. Such changes may make the student eligible for reduced price or free meals if the
household income falls at or below the levels shown below.

Under the provisions of the Free and Reduced price meal policy the School Lunch Administrative
Assistant will review applications and determine eligibility. If a parent or guardian is dissatisfied
with the ruling of the official, he or she may wish to discuss the decision with the determining
official on an informal basis. If the parent wishes to make a formal appeal, he or she may make a
request either orally or in writing to Superintendent Mary Sue Neves, 20859 Central Avenue East,
RM-G20, Blountstown, Florida 32424, phone 850-674-5927.

Unless indicated otherwise on the application, the information on the Free and Reduced Price
Meal application may be used by the school system in determining eligibility for other educational
programs.

challenge since music itself is
so influential. One goal that I
have is to have students per-
form a couple concerts this
year, one in the fall and the
other in the spring. The mid-

certs and both schools will be
attending FSU vs. UAB on
September 8th! It is a free

really excited because this
will be my first FSU game! I

END OF SUMMER = START
OF SOMETHING NEW
The end of summer means
a lot of different things for
many people. Okay, school is
about to start and for some it
is their last year, while others
are just beginning the jour-
ney! Autumn equals harvest
time, cooler temperatures,
and, important to so many, a
brand new hunting season
on the horizon. Take a
moment this week and enjoy
those around you, for life is
short and takes unexpected
turns. Instead of looking at
the seasons change as an
end, choose to see it as a
beginning.

BY LINDA WILLIAMS
Mossy Pond VFD
Summer is almost over,
time to start buying school
clothes and getting them to
bed early so they'll be used to
getting up.
I wanted to tell the people
who were in charge of the
fireworks and 4th of July
party that I really enjoyed it.
You didn't run out of hot dogs
and drinks and people were
really nice. The band was
great, next time we need
more people dancing besides
the few who were.
Mossy Pond has lost a
loved one, loved by the whole


community: Ona Smith. At
the age of 70, she was help-
ing the VFD and auxiliary
clearing the land so they
could build the fire depart-
ment on porter grade. She
was a member of the fire
department and the auxiliary
for many years. She will be
missed by all of us.
It seems like we have more
animals that have been
dropped off. A long haired
black cat with a great person-
ality and a dog about six
month old. Will someone
please have a heart and come
after these two nice pets?
The dog is of Hines 59 vari-
ety. We will be forced to have


them put to sleep.
Be good to one another
and remember the golden
rule, kindness starts at
home, then pass it on.
We are working real hard
to get bingo started again.
The Fire House bingo will
help support the VFD's. Any
questions, call Linda at 762-
9295.
The Mossy Pond VFD is
looking for firefighters and
auxiliary members so come
out and help make a differ-
ence. I know that lots of peo-
ple in Mossy Pond have
worked both in the fire
department and auxiliary at
one time. Don't you think its


time to come back and let us
use your good ideas?
It has been mightly 'hot
and when that happens
sometimes we don't have as
much patience with our chil-
dren or spouse so before you
blow your top take a cold
shower or take a nap. Be
good to your family, they
grow way too fast and are
gone to make their own fami-
lies.

96, of Blountstown, Florida,
passed away Saturday,
August 11, 2007, at the home
of her son, Benjamin J. (BJ)
Bateman, Jr., in Troy,
Alabama.
Mrs. Bateman was born
on April 25, 1911, in Calhoun
County and had lived here for
most of her life. Louise was a
retired school teacher with
numerous years of teaching.
She was a 1961 graduate of
Florida State School of
Education with a Bachelors
degree. Mrs. Bateman was a
member of the Blountstown
Chapter #179 OES and was a
member of the First Baptist
Church in Blountstown, Fla.
She was preceded in death
by her husband, Benjamin
Jefferson Bateman, Sr.
Survivors include two
sons, B.J. (Jay) Bateman, Jr.
of Troy, Ala., David Robert
Bateman of Jennings, Fla.;
one brother, W.T. Chafin of
Largo, Fla.; four grandchil-
dren, Leah, Michael, Christy,
Geoffrey.
Funeral services will be
held Friday, August 17, at
10:00 a.m. (CDT) at the First
Baptist Church in
Blountstown with Bud
Guilford officiating.
Interment will follow in the
Lake Mystic Cemetery in

MRS. JULIA P. FENN
Mrs., Julia P. Fenn, 73, of
Bristol, passed away
Thursday, August 9, 2007, in
Blountstown.
Mrs. Fenn was a native
and life long resident of
Liberty County and was a
member of the Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter Day
Saints. She was a retired
nurse where she worked at
Calhoun Liberty Hospital and


ancient story of
the three blind
m e n
approaching
an elephant for
the first time
offers a great
Tim Adams lesson in
FuneralDirector understanding.
The first blind man feeling the
elephant's trunk declared: "It is like
a snake." The second feeling the
massive leg said: "It is the same
as a tree." The third holding the
tail said: "Ah, it is only a rope."
Each wrong -yet each correct.
The two and three sides of
arguments and differences, each
and all have their points - this we
need to remember. Consider the
other side, and there is always
another side.
'When there is opposition to
change, try to understand just
what the opposition thinks. The
fears and the anguish that they
feel could result from change.
This is really what people are
fighting.
. What' appears as a simple
rope to come, looms as big as a
tree to others.
The great attainment of man is
when he can say: "Friend, I want
to understand your problem."

Adopt-A-Room program


BY RON GILLIARD,
ADMINISTRATOR
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital

I love "win-win" situations.
Let me tell you about a good
one.
At my last three hospitals,
including an Air Force med-
ical facility, we had a very
successful program we called
the "Adopt-A-Room."
It was pretty simple but
very effective in several ways.
Organizations, local busi-
nesses, civic clubs, church
groups, families, American
Legions, and some individu-
als would "adopt" one of our
inpatient rooms or other
areas of the hospital and dec-
orate it.
We would have a nice cer-
emony recognizing the spon-
sor, cut a ribbon, and place a
nice plaque on the door of the
room. It would state who had
adopted the room and often
in whose honor it had been
decorated. We always
assured good coverage by the
local newspapers.
It was a very good pro-


dents will possess the skills
that are required to perform
computer support and main-
tenance and can earn certifi-
cation that qualifies them to
work in this field. We are
excited to offer this program
to students, as it extends our
vocational program.
Throughout the summer,
our maintenance staff has
worked tirelessly in sprucing
up our schools. They haves
replaced floors, painted, and
tiled floors at several schools.
The science building at Altha
has undergone a complete
renovation. We appreciate the
dedication and hard work of
our maintenance staff.
As this new school year
begins, I would like, to thank
our parents and community

have happened otherwise.
The same situation exists
here at Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital.
I feel the same thing can
be very successful here. I
know there are civic clubs
and businesses and other
organizations looking for
worthwhile projects. I've
mentioned the program to a
few folks and already have
some individuals interested,
including one family that has
already asked for a reserva-
tion on a room.
A start has been made and
I want to thank the Senior
Citizens Association and the
River Town Community
Church for what they've
already done. If I leave any-
one out, please let me know.
We'll have a recognition cere-
mony for them in the future.
This will just formalize this
great program and encourage
more adoptions!
We will provide a room for
decorating on a "first come -
first choice" arrangement. I
will also tell you we ran out of
rooms in those other hospi-
tals at least for inpatient
rooms. We have rooms and
other areas that could be
decorated here at Calhoun-
Liberty. (For example, our
lobbies, laboratory, radiology,
including mammography,
hallways, etc. can all be
"adopted.")
Where does the "win-win"


come into play? Hopefully,
you've already figured that
out. We get our rooms updat-
ed at no cost to us as we con-
tinue to face many tough
challenges in doing such nec-
essary work. At the same
time, the sponsoring group or
family gets to perform a very
worth-while community serv-
ice project and often to honor
someone in the process.
Community support is
necessary for your hospital to
continue to be a good, quali-
ty, viable organization. I
hope you will use us whenev-'
er you need us for your med-
ical needs. However, this is
a way to help us tremendous-
ly and you don't have to be
sick to do so!
Another small, rural hos-
pital only about one hour
from Blountstown closed its
doors recently. We are doing
everything we can to not only
assure this hospital survives,
but thrives, and becomes a
place, you will be pleased to
utilize. This program is a
way you can help. in that
process. Community support
is vital for any hospital to be
successful.
The Adopt-A-Room
Program is an excellent way
for this community to sup-
port its hospital. I hope you
agree and' will participate in
this endeavor to assist

B'' ,, 6 Nov. 18,1980
S 'I,:,r sor: FedEx Kinko's
" Chief: Charles Barraclough
. , Chevrolet
Biography:
During the 2004 season, Denny Hamlin caught
the eye of Joe Gibbs Racing with a handful of
Craftsman Truck Series races while competing
full time in Late Models for Dean Motorsports.
Hamlin made his NASCAR Busch Series debut at
Darlington, dubbed NASCAR's "Toughest Track
to Tame". After starting in 27th place, Hamlin
worked his way towards an 8th place finish, as
well as a future at Joe Gibbs Racing. In 2005,
Hamlin replaced Mike Bliss in the #20 Rockwell
-Automation Chevrolet. He made his Cup debut at
Kansas Speedway in 2005 after struggling driver
Jason Leffler was released. He finished the Cup
season with three Top 10 finishes in seven start&
and one pole at Phoenix International Raceway
before being named driver of the #11 FedEx
Chevrolet for the' 2006 Nextel Cup season. In
2006, Hamlin ran his first full season in the
NASCAR Nextel Cup'Series. Hamlin drove dou-.
ble duty and won Rookie of the Year in the Nextel
Cup while also driving the full season for Joe
Gibbs Racing in the Busch Series.


Robby Gordon avoided a lengthy suspension last Tuesday when -
NASCARfined him $35,000 and placed him on probation through
the end of the year for his misconduct during the Busch Series
race in Montreal. The penalties came with the stipulation that
Gordon will be suspended indefinitely if he disrupts another event
this season or NASCAR deems his actions inappropriate. Hours
later, in a gesture he called a "peace offering," Gordon said he would field a car for Marcos
Ambrose in this past weekend's Nextel Cup event at Watkins Glen. Gordon wrecked
Ambrose in the dosing laps of last Saturday's race to deny him his first NASCAR victory.


Tony Stewart won the Centurion'Boats at Watkins Glen
International on Sunday. Wih only Iwo laps to go, Tony took
advantage of a huge mistake made by Jeff Gordon. Gordon
had started from the pole position and had led a race-high 51 -
laps but spun out while heading into the first turn, gMng Tony
the lead. Gordon finished ninth. After the race Jeff said, "I just
overdrove going into one. It was just stupid. I knew I had to
push because Tony was really good." Canadian road race ace
Ron Fellows finished fourth while Dale Eamhardt Jr. greatly
hurt his chances of making the Chase with only four races to
go before the cutoff. It was the second road race for the boxi-
er Car of Tomorrow with eight cautions and one red flag.


One race in 2005 set a record for most cautions
(22) in NASCAR history. Which race was it?


a) Coca Cola 600
b) Aaron's 499


c) Sharpie 500
d) Daytona 500

Adopt-A-Room program


FHP Trooper Wesley Horsey (right) is pictured with the cosh ond
other items seized Fridoy when he arrested Toby Gornett (left).


Drug arrests


with a white powder residue
that tested positive for
cocaine.. The FHP seized
$1033 in cash Garnett had
on him, along with his 2000
Chevrolet Camaro.
Later that evening, the
Calhoun County Sheriffs
Office arrested Eric Elton
Wood, 31, for possession of a
Schedule III narcotic, less
than 20 grams of marijuana,
and drug paraphernalia,
along with tampering with
evidence. According to a
CCSO report, Dep. Bliss
Moreau stopped Wood on SR
71 South for having an inop-
erable. tag light. As he
approached the driver, he
immediately smelled burnt
marijuana. Wood, who was
the passenger, reportedly
began answering for the driv-
er and was asked to step out-
side. Wood advised an open
beer in the car belonged to
him. Wood emptied his pock-
ets at the deputy's request
and Dep. Moreau spotted a
white pill cupped between his
palm and thumb. As Moreau
tried to grab his hand, Wood
tossed the pill and tried to
step on it. It was recovered
and identified as a Lortab. A
Marlboro cigarette box was
recovered from the car with a
three inch marijuana blunt
inside.
The following night in
another , stop, Caralee
Elizabeth Hall, 20, was
arrested for possession of
crack cocaine and drug para-
phernalia.
According to a CCSO
report, Dep. Eddie Dalton
was assisting FHP with a
traffic stop on Hwy. 71 just
outside Altha when he


noticed the passenger of the
vehicle, Hall, appeared nerv-
ous and had bloodshot eyes.
When she was asked to step
outside, Dep. Dalton spotted
her trying to place a black
object under the seat. The
object turned out to be a film
case containing three pieces
of crack cocaine and a crack
pipe.
Two additional arrests
were made just after 2 a.m.
Sunday. James Kevin
Musgrove, 43, and Florinda
Jean Chason, 49, were both
charged' with possession of
crack cocaine.
According to the CCSO,
Dep. Dalton and Reserve
Deputy Alvin Edenfield
stopped the pair on Hwy. 73
for having a tail light out. A
search of the vehicle turned
up a glass tube with a Brillo
pad fashioned into a crack
pipe and containing a small
piece of crack cocaine, result-
ing in the arrests.

Calhoun-Liberty.
In one of the other hospi-
tals, the American Legion
decorated a room. The only
problem I had was when any
Legionnaire was admitted
they always wanted that
room!
Several church groups,
including Sunday School
classes, ladies groups, etc.,
did beautiful jobs on their
rooms. One member of a
class even painted the beau-
tiful art work in the room.
Two physician brothers
from one community, but
currently practicing in larger
cities far from their home
town, adopted a room in
honor of their brother who
was killed in Vietnam.
Several other families also
adopted rooms to honor loved
ones. Those were always
touching ceremonies.
We can work the program
in several ways. Often, the
work will be done by the folks
that adopt the room. Others
donated the funds to perform
the work and then we did it
"in house." Others hired con-
tractors to do it. We do need
to coordinate the work with
our Engineering Department

to comply with all safety
requirements and codes and
infection policies. It always
went extremely well regard-
less of the route taken.
Costs can vary but a nice,
basic inpatient room can be
done for around $2,500. It
may be less if the sponsor
does the work and again, it
can make for a great project.
By the way, for tax purposes,
it is a fully deductible dona-
tion since we are a not-for-
profit organization.
If other items such as fur-
niture and especially a nice
hospital grade
"sleeper/recliner" type chair
are included, it can be more.
We can purchase such items
through the hospital chan-
nels, usually at a big dis-
count. We certainly would
put no limit on the amount -
leaving it up to the adopters
to do it nicely in their own
way.
Again, this was an out-
standing program in my
other hospitals and I know it
can be' just as successful
here. If you are interested in
our Adopt-a-Roomn program


give me a call. Or drop by
and discuss it with me at
your convenience. I wouldn't
hesitate long however. I feel
certain lots of folks are going
to want to "adopt" a room. I


hope you're one of them and
we have a real win-win situa-
tion! Give me a call on this
program or on anything
about the hospital: at 674-
5411, ext 206.
