BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
DNA testing led to the

13 year old girl.
James Arthur Leavins,
21, has been charged with
sexual battery in the case,
along with violation of pro-
bation.
According to the Calhoun
County Sheriffs Office, the
case was opened back in
April of this year when Inv.
Michael Bryant received
information that a local
middle school student had
possibly been impregnated
by a 20-year-old male.
During an interview with
the child and her mother,
the girl told Inv..Bryant she

Opry brings in funds for log cabin













:2





The Frink Gym inside the Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement in Blountstown was the setting for
the Cane Grinder's Opry held Saturday night.
The full house enjoyed the sounds of Easy
Company, featuring 11-year-old Bre Pybus
(picturedat right) and Joel Hathaway,
Swiflwater, Gary Watterson, Faye Smith, Peggy
Cox, and Sue Bradley. The crowd feasted on.,
grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, and a variety of
tasty treats with all proceeds going toward the
restoration of the old log cabin that was locat-
ed on the grounds of Blountstown High.School
for many decades. The cabin was relocated to
the Settlement this past year and thousands
are needed to restore it for community use. The
Cane Grinder's Opry brought in $1800 and the
BHS Classes of 1956 and 1957 donated
$600 to the cause. According to Settlement
founder Willard Smith, new logs alone will cost
around $20,000, so more fundraisers are
planned. If you'd like to contribute or help with
this cause, contact the Settlement at 674-
3050. Turn to page 12 for more highlights.

To the Editor:
My husband, Harvey, and
I selected this area to move to
after retirement as we
thought the area was beauti-
ful and the people really spe-
cial....now we know we made
the right choice.
Hip replacement had side-
lined my usually active hus-
band and we were so delight-
ed when we came home from
rehab one afternoon and
found that Lester Bramblett
of Bristol and Paul and Sybil
Plazarin of Altha had mowed
our 5 acre yard.
Then Harvey's Masonic
brother Ed Metcalf of Mexico
Beach notified us that his
trailer was loaded with 96
bales of hay and all we had to
do is pick it up in
Wewa .... PANIC...how to
unload all that beautiful hay?
Not to worry...Ron.Mears and
his FFA team of Ashley
Whitfield, Catherine
Gurliaccio, Nic Stoltzfus, Jay
Sweinhart, Mollie Fagen, Will
Leonard and FFA alumni
Jennie Fagen showed up on
our return to unload and
stack the hay in our barn.
What wonderful
teenagers.....I'm sure they
were great to begin with, but
being under the leadership of
Ron Mears is a plus for any-
one.
Thanks for allowing us to
be a part of this wonderful
area.

Harvey & Barbara Ellison

To the Editor:
So, the first couple weeks
of school are over.... How did
it go? Most kids got there
with cool new backpacks
loaded with matching sup-
plies, anxious to start doo-
dling on the clean notebooks.
Their clothes are bright .and
new; their shoes squeak
down the hallway. Their
biggest worry is how much
homework they'll have the
first week and if they'll be
able to call their friends as'
often as they did in the sum-
mer. Ahh... the good old
days....
Unfortunately (there's
always an "unfortunately"),
there are many children that
won't get to have these "good
old days." These are the kids
that have been abused, aban-
doned, or neglected by their
p r'fitst and then taken from
their homes. Their old days
will be memories of dread
when,going back to school
because they'll, yet again, be
"the new kid" wondering how


many times they will move
this year. Their backpacks
and supplies are based on
the rationing of donated
items. Call their friends?
Send a text message? These
kids just wonder if they'll be
able to see or talk with their
brothers and sisters this
month. They wonder where
their parents are. They won-
der if they'll ever see them
again.
It's a coarse reality, and
although we get brief
glimpses of it on billboards or
flashes on the television, it's
hard to see that it's right here
in our area. Literally, almost
daily, a child is removed from
his or her home due to poor
choices made by their par-
ents. They usually only bring
with them that which fits in a
plastic grocery bag. And -oh
by the way- they're also often
separated from their siblings
in different placements that
span the 14th Circuit (Bay,
Washington, Holmes,
Jackson, Calhoun, and Gulf
Counties).
Keep in mind, the children
I'm talking about did nothing
to create these circum-
stances for themselves, but
despite this fact, they have
no voice in the decisions that
affect them.... That is, until a
strong, stable adult - stands-
up and cares enough to make
the effort to help improve the
direction of their lives.
The Guardian ad Litem
program is the one entity that
is designated to specifically
help abused and neglected
children and their best inter-
ests. The GAL program
reports the child's situational
perspective to the entities
that matter. We are in need of.
compassionate community
volunteers to be .a part of the
GAL program to help advo-
cate on behalf of these kids
so that every child, regard-
less of age or placement, has
a voice. The volunteer hours
are minimal and flexible, and
the training is free.
Please stand-up and be
the caring adult that these
children need! Contact the
14th Circuit's main Guardian
ad Litem office for more infor-
mation: 850-747-5180.

Somehow, largely through the Grace of God, devoted loyalty, and
the vast pride on the part of many people, The County Record has
1 7 never missed an issue.


Letter to the editor:
This is in response to an
account in the Florida
Sheriffs Star (Florida
Sheriffs Association
Publication) March/April
issue 2007. That on
November 29, 2006, four
deputy sheriffs responded to
a call for help by a man (45
year old Adrian Apgar) in the
area of Lake Parker County
Park on East Lake Parker
Drive in Lakeland, Florida,
saying, "Help a big gators got
me, both of my arms are bro-
ken."
The deputies located the
man and gator ,with their
flashlights, 20 feet from
shore. After a 20 minute tug
of war they finally pulled him
loose from the gator's mouth.
Apgar ended up with a bro-
ken right arm, partially
amputated left arm, major
trauma to his left upper leg.
Imagine the increase in the
man's injuries that probably
occurred in that 20 minutes
that wound up 40 feet from
shore. The deputies said
that the reason they didn't
shoot the gator to make him
release the man earlier.was
because of the darkness and
commotion in the water,
causing them to fear hitting
the victim. Remember, they
had flashlights and the gator
was 12 foot long. It is hard
for me to believe the deputies
had hold of some of the vic-
tim's limbs and the gator had
hold of the other limbs and
they.could not have shot him.
It seems to me they could
have shot the gator some-
where in the spine, causing it
to release the victim without
hitting the victim. This could
have prevented the increase
in the victim's injuries which
no doubt occurred in that 20
minute tug of war.
When I read that FWCC
personnel had captured this
monster killer gator instead
of killing it I wondered if they
were going to release it.
Which they evidently were
going to do or else they would
have killed it instead of cap-
turing it. The only place I
would agree for such a mon--
ster gator to be released is
within an ongoing FWCC
Commissioners meeting.
Maybe that would get
through their thick heads the '
danger of their putting
preservation of wildlife above
the safety and lives of the

Learning the art,
of basket making
at the Settlement
A pine needle basket mak-
Sing class was recently held at
the Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement in Blountstown.
The art of making baskets
from natural fibers is not
new. In some cultures this
craft has been practiced for
centuries using a variety of
materials such as grasses,
reeds, horse hair and even.
porcupine quills. Locally, our
ancestors have been coiling
and stitching together pine
needles into baskets for gen-
erations.
The Settlement strives to
educate visitors and locals
alike about the pioneer
lifestyle by offering hands-on
workshops..If you have any
expertise in a craft that was
practiced by our pioneer set-
tlers, and would be willing to
share your knowledge with
others, volunteers and
instructors are always being
sought. Watch for upcoming
classes and events at the
Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement and be sure to
make plans to attend.

Offense sputters; winning streak ends


Tigers fall to Marianna, 14-6


The Blountstown Tigers'
23 regular season victory
streak came to an end at
Powles Field Friday night as
,the Tigers suffered a 14-6
season opening loss to the
Marianna Bulldogs. It was
the first regular season loss
Since the Tigers fell to
kpalachicola 20-26 in 2003.
K: The Tigers will now turn
their attention to improving a
'puttering offense that man-
�ged only 35 yards on the
ground and 46 through the
Amr.
"We were very inconsistent
"'n offense. We've got to fix
Oome things and we fix
them," coach Greg Jordan
paid Monday. "We're not exe-
cuting our plays and we're
not able to maintain the foot-
ball. Our defense gave up
6wo big scores in the first
4ialf, something we've got to
eliminate. Overall, our
defense didn't play too bad,
but we've got to improve in all
areas."
" Jordan pointed our that
inexperience and lack of
depth hurt Friday night
against Marianna. Senior
quarterback Cory Cox was
held out of the first quarter
and senior Ryan Baker the


entire first half, both for dis-
ciplinary reasons.
"We started six new offen-
sive starters and seven new
defensive starters against
Marianna," Jordan noted.
"We're young and these kids
will work hard and get better
as the season progresses."
The Tigers will travel to
Greensboro Friday night to
face West Gadsden, another
team featuring speed in the
backfield and more big line-
men. 'They lost to a much
stronger Niceville team last
week and they'll be eager to
play us," Jordan said.
Blountstonw's passing
attack was never affective
Friday night as starter Jared
Lilly was 0-2 and Cox fin-
ished with 7 of 21 for 46
yards. Marianna's defensive
backs made two nice inter-
ceptions on long passes by
Cox to John Lockhart.
Lockhart is still hampered by
an ankle sprain suffered
against Liberty County.
Leading rushers for the
Tigers were Baker with 34
yards on 7 carries and and
Malcolm Ivory with 21 on 5
carries. The Tigers managed
35 yards on the ground 'on 18
attempts for a 1.9 yard per


carry average. The Tigers carries
lost one fumble early in the rushed
second half. carries
Marianna put their two
scores up in the second quar-
ter, one on a 6 yard run by
their quarterback who broke
away from a near sack and
the other on a 48 yard off
tackle play with 44 seconds
left in the half. The first
score followed a botched punt
by the Tigers when the block-
er in front of the punter
backed up into the punter
not allowing him room to get
the kick away.
The Tigers came out in the
second half with a little more
spark and put together a
good drive, only to have it end
with a fumble.
After forcing the Bulldogs
to punt, David Mayo scooped
up the blocked effort and
raced 40 yards for a touch-
down. The PAT failed, but
the Tigers were back in the
game with a full quarter to
go. I
Defensively, Jared Lilly led
the Tigers with 10 tackles fol-
lowed by Ivory and Ron
VanLierop with 8 each.
Jeremy Watson and Chase
Johnson were each in on 6.
Britt Leach and Baker were
each in on 5 tackles and
Lockhart and Mayo were
each credited with 4. Marcus
Martin, Darrin Juff, Shane
Bailey and Demarco Johnson
and Cory Cox also made
defensive plays. Cox came
up with a fumble recovery for
the Tigers.
Marianna's quarterback,
Brandon Gardner, was 2-2 in
the game for 28 yards. Both
completions kept drives alive.
Bradley Battles rushed for
88 yards on 21 carries and
Ren Williams added 81 onir10


as the Bulldogs
for 179 yards on 40
for a 4.5 yard per


carry average. 7:00 CT. The stadium is still

BY BLOUNTSTOWN TIGER A
HEAD COACH GREG JORDAN


by Coach Greg Jordan
The season opener has
4ome and gone and the Tigers
4re 0-1. This loss to Marianna
signifies the end of an unbeliev-
able three year run without a
fpgular season loss. The Tigers
Jad reeled of 33 regular season
ins without a defeat. What to
o now? Our response is to
$tart a new streak beginning this
,eek at West Gadsden. One
hiing that is constant in high
school athletics is change. This
year's squad is no different, we
Mave seven new starters on a
Defense that is still being
leakedd each week to get the
|est players on the field.
offensively, the entire offensive
Bjne are first year starters with
Jhe exception of senior Britt
each (who's starting in a new
Position this year). There are six
new starters on offense, these


players will improve each week.
Overall, including the loss to
Liberty, one or two plays in a 48
minute game is the difference
between a win or a loss. These
are no way excuses for the lack
of execution, just stating the
makeup of our football team.
Our players responded
Monday with probably the best
practice of the year. No one on
this football team enjoys losing.
The players and coaches will do
whatever it takes to right the ship
and get things headed in a posi-
tive direction. The support of the
Tiger fans has been instrumental
in the success we've had.
Please continue to follow and
support these Tigers as we trav-
el to West Gadsden. The game
time will be 7:00 p.m. CST. Hope
to see ya at the game! GO

The French connection



BHS teacher attends



France-Florida forum


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Blountstown High School
foreign language instructor
Dana Ayers got a taste of
France without leaving the
Sunshine State this summer
when she was. invited by the
-Florida Department of
Education and the French
Consulate to participate in
the France-Florida Education
Forum in Miami.
'The government of France
and the State of Florida have
drafted a legislative agree-
ment - a memorandum of
understanding," says Ayers.
"It entails several different
things, but the basic purpose
is to create better relations
between Florida and France
and to establish programs
that will benefit students,
teachers, and the general cit--
izenship."
That idea has sparked sev-
eral 'more in Ayers who
returned to the panhandle
hoping to help spread the
French-Florida program in
this part of the state.
'The forum mainly dealt
with Miami-Dade schools,"
says Ayers, adding that a
charter school was discussed
with an international studies
program' teaching kinder-
garten through high school in

both French and English.
"You might have social stud-
ies and chemistry taught in
French," Ayers remarks.
The French-Florida pro-
gram involves exchange
opportunities with American
teachers going to France to
teach for a period and French
teachers coming to the
states. Student exchanges
are also part of the program.
'There are scholarships avail-
able to American and French
students to study for around
three weeks at a time," Ayers
reports.
Travels to France are
nothing new to Ayers who
has visited many times and
even taken some of her
French students from BHS.
Her students have also par-


ticipated in an annual
French language competition
in Orlando. "Adam Harpool
competed three -years ago
and won a 10 -day trip to
France that was paid for
almost completely with schol-
arships from the French gov-
ernment," says Ayers.
One of the goals discussed
at the forum was producing
students who can compete in
a world economy. The BHS
French students are certainly
excited about expanding
their own program. 'The kids
that went to competition this
year in Orlando want to start
a French club," .says Ayers.
"On the way home, they were
saying, 'Next year we're going
to compete in this, this, and
this.' They got a lot of enthu-
siasm from that and they
want to have an advanced
French class this year. It got
them really enthused and I'm
hoping we'll continue to be
able to offer something
beyond the first couple years
of language."
There are a variety of
opportunities through the
French-Florida program and
Ayers is trying to expand
those here in the panhandle.

Governor urges families



to save early for college


Governor Charlie Crist has
declared September College
Savings Month in Florida,
recognizing that saving for a
child's college education is
one of the most important
things a family can do.
'The opportunity to send a
child to college is a wonderful
part of the American dream,"
Governor Crist said. "I am
reminding Florida families of
the importance of saving for
college, so their children and
grandchildren have the great-
est chance of success in life.
The time to begin saving for
college is today. By planning
ahead, college is affordable.
Even small amounts of sav-
ings, done regularly, add up
over time."
The Florida Prepaid
College Board offers two
affordable, tax-free options to
save for college. The popular
Florida Prepaid College Plan
and the Florida College
Investment Plan give families
the choice and flexibility they
need to reach their college
savings goals.
Fla. Prepaid College Plan
The Florida Prepaid
College Plan, the nation's
largest plan of its kind, locks
in the cost of college tuition,
local fees and dormitory
housing at today's prices.
The plan covers the actual
costs at any of Florida's 11
public universities and 28
community colleges. The
value of the plan can also be
transferred to most private
colleges in Florida, select
technical schools and most
out-of-state colleges. . More
than 1.2 million Florida
Prepaid plans have been pur-
chased statewide since the
first'plan was sold 19 years
ago. For more on the Florida
Prepaid College Plan, visit
http://www.florida529plans.
com/prepaid/index.html
College Investment Plan
The Florida College
Investment Plan allows fami-


lies to save for college tuition,
fees and housing, and for
other college expenses not
covered by the Florida
Prepaid College Plan includ-
ing books and graduate
school. Accounts can be
opened with one-time contri-
bution of $250 or by starting
a monthly automatic with-
drawal from a checking/sav-
ings account with a mini-
mum of $25. For more on the
Florida College Investment
Plan, please visit
http://www.florida529plans.
com/savings/index.html
According to the U.S.
Department of Labor, college
students graduating with a
bachelor's degree will earn on
average at least $1 million
more over a lifetime than
someone with a high school


diploma.
Leroy Cordero Floyd III of
Fort Pierce earned a bache-
lor's degree at Florida State
University before being
accepted at FSU College of
Medicine. "I believe my son
was between seven and nine
years old," recalled his moth-
er Bernadette of purchasing
a Florida Prepaid College
Plan. "Having the Florida
Prepaid Plan has enabled me
to enter medical school virtu-
ally debt free from student
loans," Floyd said.
'There is no better or wiser
time than now to start saving
for your child's college educa-
tion," said Florida Prepaid
College Board Chairman Ted
Hoepner. "It's the best invest-
ment you can make in your
child's future."

Camp Monarch Saturday

to help bereaved children,


Covenant Hospice is now
accepting registration for its
annual fall Camp Monarch,
to be held Saturday,
September 8. Camp Monarch
is a one day camp for
bereaved children, ages 5
through 15, who have recent-
ly lost a loved one or who
may be anticipating a loss.
Those attending will check in
at 8:30 a.m. at the Lowe's
parking lot in Marianna and
then head to Seacrest Wolf
Preserve in Chipley.
Registered campers will
enjoy games, team building
activities, arts and crafts, an


opportunity to pet the wolves,
and much more. Camp activ-
ities give bereaved- children
the opportunity to explore
their emotions and gain
strength from other children
in similar situations through
therapeutic activities. There
is no cost to attend.
Breakfast and lunch will be
provided. To register or for
more information, please
contact Mary Ellen McHugh
or January McKeithan,
Covenant Hospice bereave-
ment & children specialists
at (850) 482-8520 or toll free
at (888) 817-2191.


French-Florida con t'd-


languages and there are a lot
of programs being done to
promote that," says Ayers. "I
would really like to establish
some things here that would
promote language learning. I
would like for people in the
community who are French
speakers or who are interest-
ed in French to contact me
and maybe we can get some
things going."

Spanish and French at BHS,
as well as at Chipola College,

"I've always been a firm
believer that peace happens
within individuals," Ayers
remarks. "When one country
gets mad at another, it's the
politicians. When you go to
France, the people there are
very nice and glad to have
Americans there. Once I took
a group of kids there on D-
day. There were American
flags waving and Canadian,
Australian, British - all the
countries that had helped.
People were thanking us and
waving at us. These French
people were thrilled for us to
be at their celebration."
Ayers goes on to say, "It's
small communities and indi-
viduals that spread under-
standing and that's very
much what this program is
all about."


BY ABBYE AYERS FAUROT
In honor of Blountstown
High School's 100th birthday,
former graduates are sharing
their favorite school memo-
ries. This week, we hear from
Abbye Ayers Faurot.
My earliest memories are
about seeing my older broth-
er and sister going off to
school without me, and after
I reached school age I felt I
had gone straight to the
Promised Land! I never
remember not wanting to go,
and my need to know whatev-
er I could learn from teachers
or classmates has not relent-
ed.
In 1930 when I was six, I
entered Miss Ada Holley's
first grade class. She scared
the living daylights out of me
and about the time I was
used to her ways, they split
our class and I was moved to
Miss Annie Belle's. I did not
know for a long time that her
name was Taylor, but
thought it was Annie Bell, as
Miss Ada was Ada Holley.
I remember each .of my
teachers and am grateful to
them all, but my favorite was
Dr. Gainey's wife Elizabeth.
She reminded me of a sailing
ship in full sail, and that's
the way she taught---full out!
She would not listen to "I
can't" and drove everyone to
do the very best they could.
She complimented us on our
good work and made us feel
so awful if we failed to meet
her expectations. Everything
was interesting, the way she
presented it to us, and I
never will forget her telling
me more than once that I had
a gift for words and should
write a book someday. I real-
ly wish she could have known
that I did.

Monday at Noon


teacher we had in high school
was a local lady, Audrey
Cayson Berson. She taught
us history and made it so real
it was never dull or boring.
She would tell us little per-.
sonal stories about different
rulers or officials so that
remembering dates or names
became much easier and
gave us a personal interest in
,the history lessons. She was
great at encouraging us to
take part in extra-curricular
activities such as band, glee-
club, basketball, being cheer-
leaders, etc. I spent many
happy hours at the old log
cabin band hall on the cam-
pus, cheered the teams on as
a cheerleader, and to my
knowledge none of the "extra"
activities interfered with my
school work.
Even without air condi-
tioning (no fans, even) we
thought our school was won-
derful. The old furnace
under the grammar school
building kept us warm on
one side or the other and Mr.
Peters was part of our school
'family. He is the only "jani-
tor" I remember, but I can
still remember the smell of
those oiled floors in both of
our school buildings.
We performed in the "audi-
torium" and got dressed for
performances in the little
rooms behind the stage and
thought we were headed
straight for Broadway after
performing with Minnie Pearl
and Roy Acuff! Mrs. Blair
wore herself frazzled during
those performances, but she
kept inviting them to come
back.
I wish everyone had as
happy memories as I do of
their school years. With both
my parents school teachers,
and my older sister a teacher
from when I was in 8th grade,


it would seem I'd have
enough of teachers. But I
. always thought school teach-


ing was a noble profession,
and have great admiration for
anyone who teaches.

In a remote
section of Italy there
was a small village
that was known for
its prized
possession, an
active and elegant
Tim Adams aqueduct which
Funeral Director wound its way down
the mountainside.
For centuries it had stood and served. . .
carrying water from the pure mountain pools to
the little village below.
Modernization came to the village ... a
modern water system was installed, and the old
aqueduct was no longer needed to bring in the
precious mountain water.
The townspeople decided to keep their
much-loved aqueduct as a memorial... and to
preserve it as a famous landmark.
"It has served long .. let's cut off its
supply of water, so we may keep it forever," they
said.
The water was diverted from its source...
and the aqueduct was given, what they thought
to be, a long-needed rest. In a few days the
sides began to split. .. and as the moss and
the ancient stones dried in the sun . . . the
wonderful old aqueduct began to fall apart. In a
very short time it was almost completely
destroyed. What centuries of service had failed
to do, idleness had accomplished in a few short
weeks.

The County Record, SEPTEMBER 5, 2007, Page 11


Calhoun County's own Clyde
Bailey arrived in Iraq over the summer
to serve as supervisor for a vector
control operation base much larger
than Blountstown.
According to Blountstown's Logan
Barbee, a senior U.S. advisor in Iraq,
Clyde's duty station includes the
entire Green Zone. "There are five or
six of Saddam's old palaces there,
with the American Embassy, the
headquarters for both American and
Iraqi forces, senior American advisors
and VIPs going in and out every day,
not to mention the heads of the Iraqi
government,' Barbee reports. 'Clyde
is an important support for all this
and more. Clyde is a department
head and rides throughout the Green
Zone daily checking on his opera-
tions, programs and supervising his
people.,
Barbee and Bailey had a chance
to cqfch up soon after he arrived in
Iraq. 'Clyde has settled in and is
enjoying working in his new enviro-
ment," says Barbee. "The evening
and morning mortar fire, he is getting
used to and he said he has great peo-
ple working with him. Clyde is one of
many making great sacrifices and
contributions. He is another example
of the greatness of America."

Scenes


from

Cane

Opry


Credit Union


December of 1967. the
Liberty County Officials
and courthouse employees
asked to join.
So in May of 1985, the
official name of the credit
union was changed to
Calhoun Liberty Employees
Credit Union as it is known
today.
By April 2006, the mem-
bership had been extended
to anyone who lives or
works in Calhoun or Liberty
counties or have an imme-
diate family member who is
a member.
The credit union started
out with Mr. Dubroff work-
ing out of Lewis Bailey's
store. When Diane Long
started working with Mr.
Dubroff. they operated out
of an office above Mrs.
Wilson Bailey's department
store next door to Virgil Q.
Mayo's law office. They
later purchased a building
on Pear Street across the
street from what is now
known as Regions Bank.
In 1985 the principal
place of business was
changed to 1007 Highway
71 North or the Martin
Funeral Home.


Approximately 1990, an
office was opened in Bristol
and Mrs. Janie Boyd
became the Branch
Manager and in 1992 they
moved into their new build-
ing where they still serve
our Liberty County mem-
bers. The Blountstown
Office moved into their new
building in March 1998,
where they still operate.
The credit union has
grown over the past 50
years, but still remains the
oldest financial institution
in two counties.
There have only been
four managers over the last
50 years. Daniel D. Dubroff
for 17.5 years, John Marvin
Nichols for 12 years, Larry
Eldridge for 1.5 years and
Diane Long for 19 years.
On Thursday, September
13. there will be a celebra-
tion from 2:00 - 4:00 P.M.
CST at the Blountstown
Office. All members of the
credit union and members
of the two communities are
invited to attend. There will
be refreshments at both
locations. Diane Long and
Janie Boyd want to encour-
age everyone to attend.

Jimmie Johnson
Born: Sept. 17, 1975
Sponsor: Lowe's
Crew Chief: Chad Knaus
car: Chevrolet
Biography:
In 2002, Jimmie Johnson joined the Nextel
Cup series. He became the first rookie in
Nextel .Cup history to ever lead the point
standings (he eventually finished fifth over-
all). Johnson started slowly in 2004, with
some early disappointments in weeks two
and three at Rockingham and Las Vegas.
However, he quickly rebounded with a
week five win at the Carolina Dodge
Dealers 400 at Darlington Raceway. He
eventually finished second in the 2004
Nextel Cup standings. In 2005, Johnson
stayed in the top five in the points stand-
ings all year, but finished 5th in points after
crashing in the midway point of the final
race of the season. Last year, Jimmie
Johnson won his first Nextel Cup
Championship with a stretch of top five fin-
ishes in the Chase for the Nextel Cup.


Two executives with the Arizona Diamondbacks have pur-
chased majority interest in the NASCAR team owned by Troy
Aikman and Roger Staubach. Jeff Moorad, -chief executive
officer of the Diamondbacks, and Tom Garfinkel, the chief
operating officer, were introduced as the controlling owners of
Hall of Fame Racing at a news conference at California
Speedway. Aikman and Staubach, Hall of Fame quarterbacks for the Dallas Cowboys,
formed their race team with three other partners in 2003. The original ownership group,
including Aikman and Staubach, will remain involved as minority owners.

Jimmie Johnson won the Sharp Aquos 500 on Sunday
night at the Califomia Speedway and clinched a spot in
the Chase for the Nextel Cup. It was Jimmie's series-high
fifth victory of the season. The winner of last year's Cup
dominated the second half of the race. After the win
Jimmie said, 'The season is all about a championship
especially when you get in the Chase. It's time for the
pressure to pick up and the hard work to start. And my
guys are ready for it." Dale Eamhardt Jr. finished in 5th
place and cut his margin to 1.28 points behind Harvick.
Next Saturday night's race at Richmond will be the final
event before the start of the Chase.


Jeff Gordon's karting career began in 1981,
when he was 10 years old. That year he
entered 25 karting events. How many did
he win?

Unique, 3/4-mile layout produces tremendous
side-by-side rang, yet drivers can obtain high
enough speeds to give it a superspeedway feel.
That rare combination allows for the beating and
"/ ' banging that fans always love, with the drivers'skill
playing a major role in winning. In the words of NASCAR NEXTEL
Cup icon Rusty Wallace, those characteristics help make racing at
the track and the experience fans have whie visiting, simply "perfect."
With NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series sellouts and tremendous
crowds each season for its NASCAR Busch Series and NASCAR
Craftsman Truck Series races, Richmond Intemational Raceway is a
future on each of NASCAR's major touring series schedules. /

The County Record, SEPTEMBER 5, 2007, Page 16


Letters cont'd-


people, puts the public in.
I congratulate those
deputy sheriffs for their brav-
ery in saving this gator vic-
tim, even though I can't help
wondering if the reason these
deputies didn't shoot the
gator was they were just a lit-
tle bit too politically correct.
If I am right I hope this does-
n't develop into a trend; as
deputy sheriffs are our best
source of protection, as they
are more aware of the pub-
lic's feelings than other law
enforcement agencies are.
Especially those who drive
around with "Law
Enforcement" painted across
the rear end of their pick-
ups.
Recently I saw an aerial
photograph on TV showing a
part of the drought exposed
shore of Lake Okeechobee. A
voice on TV said there were
30 gators in that shot. The
gators looked to me to be
mostly of people killing size 7
foot and up, as big and little
gators do not congregate.
This is an indication of how
over populated Florida is with
monster gators.
On July 21, I saw a TV
depiction of the 3 women that
were killed by monster gators
in Florida in 10 days. It was
mostly an asinine attempt to
put the blame on the women
for getting killed by the
gators, rather than blaming
the gators. It don't make a
damn what the women might
have done to entice the
gators to kill them. The
cause of their deaths were
the monster gators that
FWCC had failed to remove,
and discussed, but refused
the public the right to remove
them. . We each have the
.right to kill another human
in defense of our lives. But
FWCC evidently doesn't
extend that right to the
killing of the bear and gator
etc.
The Louisiana alligator
regulation booklet lists in the
exception to the rule the fol-
lowing: 'This regulation shall
not prohibit a person from
killing an alligator in immedi-
ate defense of their lives or
lives of others. Alligators
killed under this provision
shall be reported to. the
department within 24 hours."
In Florida, if you are involved
in the killing of an alligator or
bear, you are assumed guilty


by FWCC until you prove
yourself innocent.
It is my opinion that, due
to the jeopardy FWCC mis-
management of the gator and
bear have put the public in, if
a person is attacked by a
gator or bear each and every
FWCC Commissioner should
be charged with accessory to
assault, to commit murder or
accessory to murder if death
results. That will be true jus-
tice and would no doubt
cause FWCC to stop ignoring
the public safety to preserve
fish and wildlife.
Without a doubt FWCC
reaction to the over popula-
tion of bear problems and
gator kills proves beyond a
doubt they are still under
control of the legislature by
way of budget threat as they
were in 1993 when the legis-
lature forced FWCC to stop
bear hunting to please the
animalfile freaks, which is
why FWCC can't respond to
the feelings of the majority.
This is a dangerous combina-
tion.
Legally, the governor who
appoints the Commissioners
has no influence on them. We
all know that is a lot of bunk.
FWCC controlled by the legis-
lature makes it management
of the fish and wildlife purely
political and headed for dis-
aster.
Sincerely,
Raymond Hamlin, Jr.
President of the Florida
Bear Hunters Association
Formerly Elected Sheriff
of Leon County,
Tallahassee FL

Quilt show cont'd-


and are then entered into a
drawing for the Opportunity
Quilt when the exhibit closes
in October. Visitors may also
bid on a number of items
included in the silent auction
throughout the run of the
exhibit. The show includes
"Quilts for the Community,"
a group highlighting the
Quilters Unlimited philan-
thropic ventures.
In addition to this year's
quilt exhibit, the Museum of
Florida History will display
three wooden sculptures
from a larger body of work
created by Tampa wood
sculpture artist Fraser
Smith. He will speak at the
opening on September 6
about his work and the inspi-
ration he receives from
quilts. These realistic pieces


look like actual hanging
quilts and have been shown
in galleries from coast to
coast, and many are in pri-
vate homes.
The Museum is located in
the R. A. Gray Building at
500 South Bronough Street,
downtown Tallahassee. The
History Shop will have items
for sale that reflect the quilt
theme. Hours are Monday
through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to
4:30 p.m.; Saturday, 10:00
a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Sunday
and holidays, 12:00 noon to
4:30 p.m. The Museum and
the History Shop are open
3rd Thursdays until 8:00
p.m.
