MAKING A DIFFERENCE


Louise Ryals devoted 23 years of her life
investing in Calhoun County school chil-
dren. Now her family and friends are
reaching out in her honor to help send
underprivileged children to college.
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Long before there was a Take Stock in Children pro-
gram in Calhoun County. Louise Ryals was investing in
the lives of young people. To honor this woman who
made a difference in the lives of so many students, her
family and friends are contributing over S2500 to help
send a child to college.
Ruby Louise Weston Rvals began her career with the
Calhoun County school system back in 1965 as a
teacher's aide at Altha School. During her 23-year
career, she went on to become a library clerk and
wound up at the Blountstown High School library
where many students were influenced by her encourag-
ing spirit.
Terry Nichols. a member of the BHS Class of '84.
served as a student aide in the library. "Me and anoth-
er couple students were moving the library when they
tore down the high school." Nichols recalls. "Mrs. Ryals
would point to books and we'd move them. She always
said we were her legs. But she did a whole lot more for
me than I did for her."
Nichols. who went on to become a dentist anrd chair-
man of the Jackson County School Board. says Ryals
was one of his greatest sources of encouragement. "She
was interested in who you were like you were her own
l family." Nichols remarks. "She and Mrs. Mac (Carolyn
McClellan. the school librarian and close friend to
Ryals) inspired a lot of dreams I had."
Paul Smith. a graduate of the BHS Class of *83.
couldn't agree more. He also became a library aide dur-
ing his time at BHS and developed a friendship with
Ryals that truly altered his life. "She became a grand-
mother figure in my life." says Smith. "She was good at
taking some of us under her wing and coaching us
through high school. She coached me to believe in
myself."
Smith. who grew up to become pastor of RiverTFown
Community Church. describes Ryals as a "brilliant lady
who was very well read" and says she led him to look
past his surroundings. "Here is a teacher that really

revolutionized my life," he says emphaucally. "She
helped me dream beyond Blountstown. She had a much
bigger view than most people realized. I grew up in a
close society and Mrs. Ryals helped me see not to hold
the world out. but to ex-plore the world. She believed in
everybody,. especially those who needed that extra push
and pat on the back."
Ryals' son. Danny, says the lessons his mother
taught her students were part of his daily home life.

"This was a very close and

played. We'll get it together."

Tiger defense holds off Port St. Joe



Second half rally lifts Tigers to 15-7 win Ws_____________


The Blountstown Tigers
won another close game over
long time rival Port St. Joe
Friday night at Bowles Field,
15-7. Despite the win, the
Tigers continue to struggle
on offense, unable to gener-
ate first downs and control
the football. Much like FSU,
the defense is being forced to
stay on the field much too
long. The Tigers and
Seminoles have big problems
on offense, but it's early in
the season and the problems
can be fixed before the big
(district) games later in the
year.
"We ran only 16 plays and
had "0" yards in the first


half," coach Greg Jordan
stated Monday. "We played a
little better in the second half
and had nearly 200 yards of
offense. Our defense played
well, about as good as e can
play. St. Joe had a talented
team and they kept us
pinned against our own end-
zone the entire first half. Our
defense did a great job keep-
ing them out of the endzone,"
Jordan noted.
The Tigers will host a very
talented Fla. High team
Friday night. "They're very
good, with size and good skill
people. They're 3-0 with wins
over P.K. Young, Port St. Joe
and West Gadsden," coach


Jordan noted. This is the
Tigers' first district game.
"We've got some real depth
issues. Our linemen are hav-
ing to go both ways and it
shows late in the game,"
Jordan said.
Malcolm Ivory gave the
Tigers an early boost when he
returned the opening kickoff
91 yards for a touchdown.
Jared King's PAT was wide,
but the Tigers had an early 6-
0 lead.
For the remainder of the
first half, the Tiger defense
was called on time and time
again to keep the Sharks out
of the endzone. The Tiger
offense started drives at their
own, 8, 1, 9, 41, 20 and 6.
The Sharks started five drives
in the first half in Tiger terri-
tory.
St. Joe was stopped on
fourth down at the Tiger 9
yard line on one drive. On
the Sharks' fourth posses-
sion, they scored on a ten
yard run. The PAT gave them
a 7-6 lead that held through
halftime. Late in the second
quarter, the Sharks missed a
32 yard field goal attempt.
On the Sharks' last posses-
sion of the first half, John
Lockhart came up with an
interception.
Early in the second half,
Ivory broke to the outside,
cut back across the middle
and raced 73 yards for his
second touchdown. A try for
two points failed, but the
Tigers were back on top, 12-
7.
Britt Leach gave the Tigers
another scoring opportunity


when he recovered a Shark
fumble. * The Tigers drove to
the Shark 13 before turning
the ball over on downs.
Early in the fourth quar-
ter, Cory Cox came up with
an interception at the Tiger
15 yard line to stop another
Shark threat. Ryan Baker
broke into the open and ram-
bled 62 yards to the Shark 10
yard line. The Tigers couldn't
move and Jared King was
accurate on a 27 yard field
goal to give the Tigers a 15-7
lead.
The Sharks threw four
incomplete passes and the
Tigers took over and were
able to run the final minute
off the clock for the victory.
Ryan Baker led the Tiger
defense with 11 unassisted
tackles and 10 assists. Davd
Mayo had a big game for the


Tigers in on 16 tackles
including 2 fbr losses.
Jeremy Watson' was also,
active for the Tigers in on 15
tackles. Britt Leach was in
on 11. tackles followed by
Chase Johnson and Demarco
Johnson with 10 each.
Shane Bailey was in on 8
tackles followed by Jared
Lilly and Malcolm Ivory with
7 each. Jason Money was in
on 6 tackles followed by John
Lockhart with 4, Blake
Shelton with 3 and Ron
VanLierop with 2.
Offensively, Blountstown
managed 5 first downs to St.
Joe's 15. The Tigers had 169
yards rushing to St. Joe's
228. The Tigers had 27 yards
passing to St. Joe's 34. The
big key to the Tigers' victory
was the. two interceptions
and the one fumble recovery


by the defense.
Jared Lilly did a great job
getting punts off against the

bounced to him, but he was
still able to get them off

Quarterback Cory Cox
competed 2 of 12 passes for

BY BLOUNTSTOWN TIGER

HEAD COACH GREG JORDAN Mo


The Tigers moved to 2-1 on the
season with a 15-7 win over rival
Port St. Joe this past Friday night at
Bowles Field.'
Even though the weather was a
little uncertain at game time there
was still a good HOME crowd for the
kickoff. The game started off with a
bang as Malcolm Ivory took the
opening kickoff for a long touch-
down, giving the Tigers a 6-0 lead
after the x-point attempt was missed.
The Sharks took advantage of a
short field, putting together a 33 yard
touchdown drive together that took
six plays and lead 7-6 at half.
In the 1st half, the Tigers could
never get on track offensively. Port
St. Joe won the field position battle,
and the Tigers stayed backed up the
entire half. I can not remember a half
where we were credited with 0 yards
in a half, but that's what happened
to us Friday night. The Tiger offense
did not convert a first down in the 1 st
half, running only 16 plays. Luckily
for us the defense stepped up and
played well all night only allowing
St. Joe the one touchdown all night
long.
In the second half the Tigers
came out and moved the ball scor-
ing on the opening second half drive
on a 73 yard TD run by Malcolm
Ivory. The Tigers were forced to go for
two after the missed pat on the first
score, and were stopped just short
and lead the game 12-7. That's the
way the game stayed until late in the
4th quarter, when the Tiger defense


picked off a St. Joe pass to gain pos-
session of the ball and ultimately the
game. From there the young Tiger
offensive line opened a running lane
and Ryan Baker went 66 yards to the
shark 10 yard line. The Shark
defense denied a Tiger TD, having to
settle for a 27 yard FG and a 15-7
lead that was the games final score.
We finished the game with right
at 200 total yards, all coming in the
second half. That's a 400 yard total
if and when we start putting two
halves together offensively.
Defensively, we're, playing pretty
good at this point, only allowing one
score in each of the past two games.
We've got to gain .some confidence
on offense, put drives together and
start scoring some points. We can't
put that kind of pressure on our
defense all season.
We've seen improvement each
week in the line play. Senior Britt
Leach, juniors Jeremy Watson,
David Mayo and Shane Bailey and
sophomore Jason Money are start-
ing to come together as a unit. Our
passing game still has miles to go to
be productive, I'm confident we can
get that problem fixed and be a good
offensive team.
This week we have our toughest
challenge as a very talented Fl. High
team comes calling this Friday night.
This will be our first district game of
the year. Come out and support the
Tigers. Hope to see you at the game!!
Go Tigers!!!

Park Trammell of the Class of 1960 shares...



Memories of BHS


BY PARK TRAMMELL
BHS Class of 1960
What was that? "See you
at Jack's." Black-and-white
TV test patterns. "Number,
please?" Drive-in movies.
Well ... those are all relics
of the era when I was a stu-
dent at Blountstown High
School - 1957 through 1960
- unquestionably some of the
best years of my life. At that
time BHS was ending the
first half-century of. its life,
but the quality education and
fundamental values imparted
to its students already were
well established as its trade-
mark.
It's challenging to try to
put into words all that
Blountstown High School
means to me. Others may
find themselves in the same
boat. Strong basic curricu-
lum. Emphasis on core val-
ues. Committed, caring
teachers. Unique, spirited
students. Carefree exuber-
ance. Enduring cama-
raderie. Pride in our school
and community.
These qualities and char-
acteristics more than made
up for anything we lacked
because of our limited enroll-
ment and small-town base.
Now ... after having seen a lot
of the world in the interven-
ing years, I can truthfully say
there's no way to put a price
tag on the value of the educa-
tion and ' fundamental wis-
dom my classmates and I
received at BHS.
Although the passage of
time clouds one's mind, our
high school years are the
springboard of limitless
memories. Many of my mem-
ories go back to my class-
mates and to our participa-
tion in various school activi-
ties and events. Back then,
as'now, high school sports
was a rallying point for the
,school and the community.
We had our ups and downs
on the gridiron, the hard-
wood and the diamond - but
there were more ups than

Club, the International Honor Society for high school journalists. Shown are Jerry Thagard,

downs. One especially
poignant memory dates back
to my senior year, 1960,
when the Blountstown High
School basketball team won
the school's very first state
championship in any sport.
Since that time, there have
been other state champi-
onships in basketball, foot-
ball and weightlifting. But
we broke the icel
Another memory goes
back to perhaps my first
awareness of the strength of
our school's academic pro-


grams. Many of the students
in Mrs. Jessie Mae (Bailey)
Price's math classes signed
up to take a standardized
mathematics exam. When
the test was given, I found it
too challenging and difficult
to complete. But, as a group,
BHS students compiled the
best overall score of any
school in Florida - and sever-
al. of our classmates were
among the top individual
scorers in the state. Over the
years, that kind of success in
the classroom has become


the norm. Calhoun County
schools continue to maintain
a tradition of. academic
achievement.
Blountstown High School
is many things to many peo-
ple. It is my good fortune to
have been part of its first cen-
tury of existence. Most any
way you slice it ... it is a CEN-
TURY OF EXCELLENCE. We
are proud of our school -
what it has been ... what it is
... and what it can be.


Just right for the occasion!.

The County Record, SEPTEMBER 19, 2007, Page 10


Gene Ryals (center) and his son, Danny, present a check to Paul Smith for the Calhoun
County Take Stock in Children scholarship program. Friends and family of Louise Ryals I
donated over $2500 in her memory.



Louise Ryals cont'd-


"Reading and getting an
education were very high on
her lists of absolutely neces-
sary things you had to do,"
says Danny. "She loved read-
ing more than anyone I know
and could name you dozens
of books that you would
enjoy."
But by far, Danny says he
most remembers his mother
for the love she had for her
family. "She was always there
for you and always had time
to listen to you and offer
advice if you wanted 'it," he
remarks. "She instilled the
values of always being honest
and truthful and helping oth-
ers. She taught us to work
hard at whatever we did, to.
do our best and to enjoy and
appreciate our accomplish-
ments and learn from our
failures."
Ryals was not only an
encourager to her family, she
,was often a source of
strength for her husband,
children, and grandchildren.
"She would often tell me, 'I'm.-
a tough old biddy, son,"'
Danny recalls. "This was
never more evident then
when she experienced the
loss of her two daughters,
Anne and Helene. We relied
on each other for strength
and support, but she was,the
glue that held the family
together. You never really
recover completely from a
loss like this and their deaths
Look a toll on her."
"Louise's determination
and sense of humor helped
her through some tough
times, but when she ended
up in the hospital back in
December, her son says she
was miserable. "I hate this
place," she would tell him. "I
wish I was at home in my
recliner reading a book."
Danny says that wish
came true. "On July 26,
2007, she was in her recliner
reading a book and left this
life for a better place in
Heaven."
Danny Ryals and Paul
Smith now serve on the
Calhoun County Take Stock
in Children Leadership
Council,' a group working to
provide scholarships for
underprivileged students.
Although funds are definitely
needed to make the program
successful, * Smith says
Louise Ryals proved there are

Clint Bowyer
Born: May 30, 1979
Sponsor: Jack Daniel's
Crew Chief: Gil Martin
Car: Chevrolet
Biography;
In 2004; Bowyer shared seat time in the #21
Reese's Chevrolet with Kevin Harvick, driving in
half of the 34 Busch Series races that year. He had
one pole and seven top-tens, and attained a sea-
son-high 3rd place finish in the Federated Auto
Parts 300. Bowyer'S first full season was in 2005,
replacing Ron Homaday in the #2 ACDelco
Chevrolet. He won two poles and two races en
route to a second place finish to repeat-champion
Martin Truex Jr., losing by only 68 points. In 2006,
Bowyer began his rookie Cup season with three
top-fifteen finishes and had a total of eleven top-
tens that season, with his best finish being a 3rd at
California Speedway. This year, after starting the
season with a last-lap crash at Daytona, Bowyer
won the Budweiser Pole position for the Dodge
Avenger 500 at Darlington Raceway. It was his first
career pole award in the NEXTEL Cup Series. He
clinched the 12th and final spot in the 2007 Chase
for the NEXTEL Cup by starting the Chevy Rock &
Roll 400 at Richmond International Raceway.

NASCAR is considering creating a reward for the winner of the .
"regular season" in response to the huge points lead Jeff Gordon '
built before the Chase for the championship. NASCAR chairman ..
Brian France said earlier this week he is willing to explore the idea
of rewarding the driver who is leading the points at the end of the
26th race of the season. Gordon built a lead of more than 300
points, but lost all of it when the field was reset last week for the Chase for the championship.
Gordon started the Chase in second place based on the new seeding process. Jimmie
Johnson, his teammate, was the new leader based on his six regular season victories.

first win?

b) Martinsville


c) Dadinglon

Clint Bowyer raced to his first Nextel Cup victory Sunday
in the Chase opener at New Hampshire International
Speedway. Clint led 221 of 300 laps. He entered the
Chase as the only driver without a victory and he had
never finished higher than third. After the race he said,
"This proves we earned a spot'and we're here for a rea-
son and I'm just so happy to be a part of the Chase. It's
such a neat deal and, hey, this is the Nextel Cup, baby."
Gordon, the four-time series champion, finished second
and was followed by two-time series champion Tony
Stewart. Johnson and Gordon are tied for the points lead
and Stewart is just 10 points back.
