Presidential candidate's son makes a stop in the river valley


Political season has officially begun and the can-
didates at all levels are making the rounds in'
Calhoun and Liberty counties.
Josh Romney, the son of presidential candidate
Mitt Romney, swept through the panhandle last week
during his tour of Florida. He paid a visit Thursday
to North Florida Lumber in Bristol where Finlay
McRae and his staff provided a tour of the mill.
"Your dad has made such a good financial success
of his Ilife," McRae told Josh. "That's a great strong
point." Romney agreed. "My dad is the socially con-
servative and fiscally conservative guy I think this
country needs."
Josh is pictured above (second from left) with
McRae (center) and some of his team. At right,
North Florida Lumber quality supervisor Derek
Bethke takes Romney on a tour. After the stop in
Bristol, Josh visited the Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement before having lunch in Marianna.
Mitt Romney, the former governor of
Massachusetts, is vying for the Republican party's
nomination.
In other political news, Calhoun County
Democrats will host a forum Monday, Oct. 1, at 5

Primary. For more on this event, turn to page 2.

ulated window.


Firefighters train



to rescue their own


Blountstown firefighters
took part in a nationally
developed rescue training
known as The Denver Drill on
Thursday, Sept. 21.
The Denver Drill is based
on the 1992 death of engi-
neer Mark Langvardt of the
Denver Fire Department in
Colorado. While working a
commercial structure fire,
Langvardt reportedly became
separated from his crew
when a floor collapsed, trap-
ping him in a small storage
room on the second floor.
The room measured approxi-
mately six by eleven feet, but
cabinets and' equipment
along the walls reduced the
room to an aisle only twenty-
eight inches wide. At the end
of the aisle was an exterior
window with a drop of 42
inches from sill to floor.
Firefighters entering
through the window had to
crawl over Langvardt, who


lay face down with his head
against the wall below the
window. There was only
room for one rescuer to
attempt lifting the victim to
the windowsill and this, after
multiple efforts, proved
impossible. Firefighters
recovered Langvardt nearly
an hour later after breaching
a wall to remove him, but the
rescue came too late to save
Lazngvardt's life.
The Denver Drill was
designed in response to this
tragedy and is taught in fire
schools throughout the
United States. In order to
successfully rescue the
downed firefighter,two res-
cuers must enter an area
built to simulate the storage
room that took Engineer
Langvardt's life. Rescuers,

Helping smokers quit is the next front in...



Fight against 'Big Tobacco'


BY ADRIAN ABNER

Ten years ago, a 12-year-
old student from tiny
Blountstown in North Florida
got on a school bus bound for
Florida's capital city to meet,
speak and have lunch with
the late Gov. Lawton Chiles.
The governor explained
Florida's historic tobacco set-
tlement victory, signed in
August, 1997, and personally
invited young people to par-
ticipate in a positive new
youth campaign called
Students Working Against
Tobacco, or SWAT.
I was that student, and I
joined the campaign
launched by Gov. Chiles, who
believed in the power of
young people to change the
world and make it a better
place. The campaign inspired
me to work to mobilize stu-
dents in my community to
resist cigarettes and to stay
off drugs. I became deeply
involved in SWAT, eventually
becoming chairman of the
state organization in 2003,
and I was elected Florida's
representative to the national
American Legacy
Foundation, which organized
the Truth anti-smoking cam-
paign.
Ten years after I boarded
that bus, youth smoking in
Florida has dropped signifi-
cantly. 'According to the
Florida Department of
Health's Youth . Tobacco
Survey, the percentage of
high school teens that


ADRIAN ABNER
smoked in the last month
dropped 44 percent from
1998 to 2006. Frequent
smoking - defined as more
than 20 cigarettes in the last
month - dropped 66 percent
among teens over the same
period.
I firmly believe that the
drop in youth smoking num-
bers is a direct result of these
concerted efforts to mobilize
young people against tobac-
co. Growing up, I had only a
few friends who became
smokers, but I believe far
more of my peers would be
smoking today were it not for
SWAT, Truth, and the hard
work that grew out of
Florida's tobacco victory.
However, we still have
unfinished business to pro-
tect our citizens. Smoking is


still the No. I actual cause of
death for Americans and
Floridians. Smoking-induced
lung cancer is the No. 1 can-
cer in women, and women
who smoke are twice as sus-
ceptible to lung cancer as are
men. In Florida, nearly
29,000 deaths are attributa-
ble to smoking each year, and
current annual health care
costs directly caused by
smoking total $5.82 billion in
this state, plus an additional
$5.86 billion in lost produc-
tivity.
Yet, more than 17 percent
of Floridians - more than 3.1
million of us - still smoke cig-
arettes, according to the
2006 Florida Adult Tobacco
Survey. The good news is that
most smokers do, in fact,
want to quit -- more than 70
percent, according to CDC
survey data. Almost half of
Florida smokers report
they've tried to quit smoking
in the past year, and nearly
60 percent say they plan to
quit within the next six
months.
The challenge facing these
Floridians is that smoking is
a powerful addiction, not
simply a personal choice.
Even if people want to quit,
cigarettes are chemically
addictive and it takes most
smokers several attempts
before they can kick the habit
successfully. That's why the
next front in the battle
against Big Tobacco must. be
to make more resources
available to help "smokers


who want to break their
addiction.
This month, the
President's Cancer. Panel, a
three-member board that
includes two leading oncolo-
gists and cyclist Lance
Armstrong, released a pack-
age of recommendations for
reducing Americans' cancer
risk. These include working
with employers to provide
incentives to aid worker
efforts to quit smoking, as
well as making coverage of
smoking cessation treatment
a standard benefit in all
health insurance plans,
Finally, we should incorpo-
rate smoking cessation treat-
ment into the comprehensive
care of cancer patients, sur-
vivors, and their family mem-
bers.
Helping people to break
their addiction to cigarette
smoking is an essential step
to saving lives and reducing
health care costs. The lesson
of Florida's successful strug-
gle against Big Tobacco 10
years ago is that to achieve
these important goals, gov-
ernment, business and the
health care industry must
work together.
Adrian Abner served as
chairman of Florida SWAT in
2003 and represented, Florida
for the American Legacy
Foundation, which crafted the
TRUTH anti-smoking cam-
paign. He graduated from
Florida Agricultural &
Mechanical University in
2007.

Homeland Security training


To the Editor:
Thanks so much for the
wonderful article on Louise
Ryals and Take Stock in
Children Scholarship Fund.
It was very well written and
appreciated. What a great
way to honor a former
Calhoun County educator
and recognize opportunities
to invest in the lives of our
students here in Calhoun
County.
I appreciate your support
and contribution to Take
Stock by getting the word out
to our citizens in Calhoun
County that they .can also
contribute to this worthy
cause.
We presently have $4655.
We only need $345 to reach
our goal!


Thanks again!

Letter to the Editor,
I wanted to thank the City
for the nice work they did re-
paving Pear Street. I also
wanted to thank our City
Manager, James Wood, on
responding so quickly to our
request and having his men
paint us a new cross walk
between our First Baptist
sanctuary and the Activities
Building.

Letter to the Editor,
"Citizens Against Tax
Strangulation" (CATS) is a
new tax protest organization
founded in protest of Calhoun
County increased spending of
37.9% and 2 added school
mills to total 20 mills;
ignoring Governor Crist's
request to cap local govern-


ment spending.
Calhoun County is not a
poor county; it is just filled
with poor people. The local
School Board is sitting on 6
million dollars in the bank
and still added an additional
2 mills causing non-home-
stead and business approxi-
mately $200 of additional
taxes on property. valued at
about $48,000.
Sixteen people protested
at the School Board meeting
and were ignored. Not one
person in the room support-'
ed them. There is no plan in
place nor can they spend the
2 mills this year which is why
Kelly King and Tim Smith
voted against them.
This is an attempt to push
through a new built High
School and bus both Altha
and Blountstown students to
a consolidated" high school
outside of both towns.
The City of Blountstown
has 4 million in the bank and
also increased spending. The
County of Calhoun at their
meeting tonight at 5:00 p.m.,
September 24, 2007, propos-
es to increase their spending
by 37.9%!!! They were given
an exemption from the man-
date to cut back as a poor Co.
"AS LONG AS THEY DID NOT
INCREASE ANYTHING", per
Marti Coley.
They have slapped Gov.
Crist in the face with their
outrageous increased spend-
,ing and citizens taxes have
doubled and tripled. "CATS"
will fight back - first mtg. -

Emergency Responder
Phillip E. Hill, from Gadsden
Fire Department, as well as a
volunteer with the
Blountstown Fire
Department, recently com-
pleted Homeland Security
training at the Center for
Domestic Preparedness
(CDP), located in Anniston,
Alabama.
The CDP is operated by
the United States
Department- of Homeland
Security's Federal Emergency
Management Agency and is
the only federally-chartered,
Weapons of Mass Destruction
(WMD) training facility in the
nation.
Hill, of Blountstown,
serves as fire coordinator for
Gadsden County. He will be
attending a series of different
courses in Anniston over the
next year.
The CDP provides federal-
ly-funded, interdisciplinary
.training for emergency'
responders from across the
United States and U.S.
Territories, for ten responder
disciplines: Emergency
Management, Emergency
Medical Service, Fire Service,
G overnm en ta.l
Administrative, Hazardous
Materials, Healthcare, Law


Enforcement, Public Health,
Public Safety
Communications, and Public
Works.
Healthcare and Public
Health training is conducted
at the CDP's Noble Training
Facility, the nation's only
hospital facility dedicated to
training hospital and health-
care professionals in disaster
preparedness and response.
Many CDP training cours-
es culminate at the CDP's
Chemical, Ordnance,
Biological and Radiological
Training Facility, the nation's
only facility featuring civilian
training exercises in a true
toxic environment, using
chemical agents. The
advanced hands-on training
enables responders to effec-
tively prevent, ,respond to,
and recover from real-world
incidents involving acts of
terrorism and other haz-
ardous materials.
Responders attending CDP
training are specially selected
from the nation's 11 million
emergency responders.
Training at the CDP ensures
that responders gain critical
skills and confidence to be
better prepared to effectively
respond to local incidents or
potential WMD incidents.


Calhoun Co. Democrats


to host forum Monday


During the last session of
the Florida Legislature, the
Legislature decided to move
the Presidential Preference
Primary (PPP) from March 5,
2008, to January 29, 2008.
Subsequently, the
Democratic National
Committee and the
Republican National
Committee each notified their
respective parties in Florida
that if they held the election
on that date they would be
penalized by the loss of dele-
gates to the / National
Convention.
What is all the fuss about
the date of Florida's
Presidential Preference
Primary (PPP)? Who set the
date of the PPP? Is the PPP
really a "Beauty Contest? Is it
really very important to vote
in the PPP, after all the real
election is in November? If
both the National Democratic
and Republican Parties are
opposed, why do it?
These are a few questions
posed by some of the voters
of Florida. Maybe you have a
question you would like ask.
Therefore, the Democratic
Party of Calhoun will conduct
a forum for the enlighten-
ment of everyone that has a
question. Whether you are a
Democrat or Republican, it is
important to vote in this elec-
tion and we will try to help
you to understand the reason


for the change, as well as, the
significance of your vote.
And, try and answer any
questions you have.
Please feel free to join us
at the Calhoun County Public
Library at 5:00PM CST,
Monday, October 1.

FWC officer

spots houseboat

fire, alerts women
FROM THE FWC
In Florida Wildlife
Commission (FWC) activities
last week, FWC Officer Alton
Ranew launched his patrol
boat at Ocheesee Landing
and began traveling south on
the Apalachicola River.
Ofc. Ranew came upon a
houseboat and noticed a fire
burning near the only door of
the houseboat. He tied up to
the houseboat and success-
fully extinguished the fire.
After extinguishing the fire,
Officer Ranew awakened two
females who were sleeping
inside the houseboat. By that
time, smoke had filled the
cabin of the houseboat. The
two females were safely
removed. The fire appeared
to have started from an over-
turned cooking grill. Ofc.
Ranew's actions likely pre-
vented the houseboat from
catching fire.

the W.T, Neal Civic Center.
After Jo Johnson gave the
prayer and led the Pledge of
Allegiance, the big event took
place.
In a lovely ceremony,
Jessie Mae initiated Linda
Adams into the Club. Linda
received the traditional red
carnation (the club flower).
Everyone gave Linda a warm
welcome. We are so delighted
you joined our group, Linda!
Then Jo began her unique
Devotional. She stated that
the deaths of so many friends
and family recently had made
her think - "What would peo-
ple say about me when I die?"
So she asked each one to
write 3 adjectives she thinks
might be used to apply to her.
They will be read after lunch.


Lunch consisted of diving
into our "Brown Bags" and
then indulging in that fabu-
lous coconut cake baked by
Frances Price. Hostesses
were Frances Price and
,Aileen McQuagge.
After lunch, Jessie Mae
gave a rundown on this
year's major events: (1)
District II Meeting Thursday,
October 11th,. in
Apalachicola, (2) Trash N'
Treasure Sale Saturday,
November 3, on the corner lot
at Hwys 20 & 71, (3) local
Arts & Crafts Show at the
December, 2007, meeting, (4)
District II Arts & Crafts Show
in Wewahitchka in February,
2008, and (5) the District II
Spring Workshop hosted by
the Blountstown Woman's
Club at the Panhandle
Pioneer Settlement.
It was a "beautiful" day -
friends together again after
the summer break, an
intriguing devotional, good
food, and lots of fun.
See you next month at the
Civic Center, October 18th.

Electric costs will rise;





FPU says prepare now


Nearly 10 years ago, a
favorable contract negotiated
by Florida Public Utilities
(FPU), allowed the company
to lock in fuel prices for an
entire decade, keeping rates
far below any other utility in
the state and shielding local
customers from the sticker
shock most Americans have
been facing over the last few
years. As that contract nears
its end, area residents and
businesses are being asked
to prepare now for rising elec-
tric costs.
Just as drivers are facing
increased gasoline prices,
utilities around the country
have been forced .to pass
sharply increased costs of
energy generation to cus-
tonefs.' This is based largely
on significantly higher costs
for natural gas and coal, the
two most commonly used fuel
sources for power generation.
The Florida Public Service
Commission (FPSC), which
regulates Florida's utility
companies, ensures that
these fuel costs are passed
directly to' customers with
absolutely no profit going to
the utility company.
A comparison of residen-
tial electric rates as compiled
by the FPSC shows that in
May, many Florida residents
saw electric costs of more
than $114 for the first 1,000
kWh used, while customers

.GOAT DAY 2007 presented


of FPU's Northwest Division
paid only $70.29. FPU
expects that under new
wholesale purchase con-
tracts, fuel costs will increase
significantly and customers
will soon see bills that are
more in line with those paid
by others in the state and the
country. "We understand
that budgets will have to be
stretched further to make
ends meet," said Don Myers,
general manager of FPU's
Northwest Division. "FPU is
committed to keeping costs
as low as possible and is
developing community solu-
tions to rising energy costs."
Base rates, which cover
utility operating costs and
have remained stable since
2004, are expected"to -rise as
well to offset increased costs
for storm hardening initia-
tives required by the FPSC,
and rising business expenses
including transportation and
insurance costs. Beginning
October 1, 2007, customers'
electric bills will increase by
13.5 percent, which includes
both fuel costs and base rate
adjustments.,
"Rising energy costs along
with mounting expenses for
operations are two factors
many area residents and
businesses are dealing with,"
stated Myers. "Initial costs
have only now been finalized,
but our plan is to provide our.

customers as much advance
notice as possible of future
increases so they can be bet-

energy conservation tech-
niques that can help to keep
costs down."
FPU is encouraging cus-
tomers to take steps now to
begin budgeting for much
higher costs. A useful tool
offered to residential cus-
tomers is a budget billing
program that has been devel-
oped to avoid large fluctua-
tions in electric bills by allow-
ing customers to pay approx-
imately the same amount
each month.
To highlight ways cus-
tomers can. conserve energy
costs, FPU is sponsoring a
community project called the.
. "Energy for Life" Home
Performance Makeover. The
event, through the generous
support of the community,
will transform the home of
Ms. Cleola Johnson and her
four adopted children. From
a new energy efficient heat
pump to weather stripping
under doors, FPU, in partner-
ship with Big Bend
Community Based Care, will
reduce the energy consump-
tion of the Johnsons' home.
While volunteers from the
community help complete the
home improvements, they
will gain first-hand knowl-
edge to reduce energy con-

'They were bound to turn
things around and they did
just that. We played as a real,

Deer, turkey short



course October 4-5


Shortening days and mod-
erating temperatures herald
the arrival of autumn. For
many, that means the return
of hunting season. Time in
the woods with friends
revives heartwarming
remembrances. The sounds
of small critters scurrying
through fallen leaves and
light filtered through trees
evoke nostalgic memories.
In years past this was an
annual return to the tradi-
tion of providing meat for the
family. Leave time was taken
from work, friends returned
from far away, and young-
sters were initiated in the
ways of the wilderness.
Many a hunt took place on
family land. For some, the
hunts were on woodlands or
fields owned by a local farm-
ers or land owners.
Game was plentiful, habi-
tat was common and regula-
tions were simple. It was too
good to last, and it didn't.
Contemporary hunters
face a myriad of challenges
before entering the field.
There are lease issues, habi-
tat maintenance or recon-
struction, predator control or
specie overpopulation, and
much, much more. Today's
hunter must be a wildlife
manager and rural land spe-
cialist.
The University of
Florida/Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences
(UF/IFAS), County Extension
offices in North Florida and
South Georgia, and other
sponsors have assistance
and answers for the ques-
tions of modern hunters,
wildlife enthusiasts and rural
property managers.
A two-day Deer and
Turkey Short Course will be
held on October 4 and 5 at
the UF/IFAS North Florida
Research and Education
Center (NFREC) in Quincy,


Florida., NF REC is located at
the intersection of I-10 and
Highway 267 at Exit 181.
In addition to the UF/IFAS
presenters, featured speak-
ers will include Brian
Zielinski from the National
Wild Turkey Federation, Joe
Hamilton of the Quality Deer
Management Association,
Jon Cooner and Mark
Trudeau with the Whitetail
Institute, Arlo Kane and
Robert Vanderhoof of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission,
and the Brandon Rutledge
with the Georgia Department
of Natural Resource. Green
South Equipment, the Short
Course major sponsor, will
demonstrate food plot drills
and other equipment for
maintaining habitat.
Presentations will include
Deer Habitat Management,
Hunting Eastern and Osceola.
Turkeys, Hunting Leases for
Deer and Turkey, and much
more. Participants will be
treated to lunch both days
and a "low country boil" on
October 4.
The second day is dedicat-
ed to a tour of River Ridge
Plantation hosted 'by owner
James Dahl and manager
Walter Hatchett. Participants
will visit food plots and other
habitat management fea-
tures. Dr. Bill Giuliano,
Wildlife Extension Specialist
from the University of

The County Record, SEPTEMBER 26, 2007, Page 7





Tigers fight to end in loss to Fla. High


The conditions were horri-
ble for football at Bowles
Field Friday night as the
Blountstown Tigers faced
new district opponent Florida
High currently ranked num-
ber 2 in the state Class 2B
-. polls. The rain may have
been a blessing for the Tigers
who continue to struggle on
offense but are playing well
on defense. Fla. High put
their only touchdown on the
scoreboard with 6:45 left in
" the game to claim the 7-0
district victory.
The loss drops
Blountstown to 2-2 overall
and 0-1 in the district with
non-district powerhouse
Wakulla scheduled for this
Friday night. Wakulla has
beaten Taylor County, Leon
and Richards this season.
Kickoff will be at 6:30 CT at
Wakulla.
"We continue not to take
advantage of scoring oppor-
tunities on offense," coach
Greg Jordan said Monday.
"We've got to play smarter.
Our offensive line is continu-
ing to get better each week
and are playing their hearts
out. Most of them are going
both ways and depth has
really hurt us this year,"
Jordan noted.
The obvious problem for
the Tigers has been the lack


of production on offense.
"Last year we were racking
up 400 yards per game on
offense and scoring a lot of
points. This year with some
of the same players in the
backfield we can't seem to get
everything together," Jordan
noted.
The Tigers have scored
only three offensive touch-
downs in four games. Senior
Quarterback Cory Cox has
completed 12 of 48 passes for
no touchdowns and 4 inter-
ceptions. Wide receiver John
Lockhart, injured in the jam-
boree against Liberty County,
who made numerous touch-
down grabs a year ago, has
yet to score in 2007. "It's
hard to figure out. We've got
a lot of things we've got to get
fixed," a dejected Jordan
said.
With the rain coming down
hard at times, it was difficult
for both teams to maintain
control of the football. The
Seminoles dropped the ball 8
times and the Tigers recov-
ered 3. The Tigers fumbled 3
times and the Seminoles
recovered 2.
Fla. High clearly had the
edge on offense running 54
offensive plays for 190 yards
while the Tigers ran only 35
plays for 98 yards.
Late in the third quarter,


The rain came down
hard at times Friday night
at Bowles Field making the
going tough for both
Blountstown and Florida
High. The conditions limit-
ed both offensive units
with the Seminoles man-
aging the game's only
touchdown in the fourth
quarter for the 7-0 win.

Cox connected with Lockhart
for 33 yards setting up a first
and goal at the Seminole 8
yard line. On first down, the
Tigers fumbled and Fla. High
took over at their 10.
In the first quarter, Fla.
High took their opening drive
to the Tiger 9 before David
Mayo recovered a Seminole
fumble to end the threat.
Following the Fla. High
touchdown, the Tigers were
caught off guard on a short
kick that was recovered by
the Seminoles.
The Tigers took their final
drive of the night to the Fla.
High 37 where it ended on
downs.
Jeremy Watson led the
Tigers on defense 'with 15
tackles including 3 for losses.
Ryan Baker was in on 14
tackles, 2 for losses. Britt
Leach had another big game
on defense with 14 tackles
and 3 for losses. Matt
Vincent, Shane Bailey,
Malcolm Ivory, Shelby
Godwin, Ron VanLierop,
David Mayo, Jared Lilly,
Demarco Johnson, Lockhart,
Chase Johnson and Jason
Money were also active on
defense for the Tigers.
Ryan Baker led the Tigers
in rushing with 53 yards on
10 carries.


Ryan Baker fights for extra yardage in the Tigers' 7-0
loss to the 2nd ranked Florida High Seminoles.


The Tigers lost a tough
battle against Fl. High this
past Friday night by a score
of 7-0.
The Seminoles of Fl. High
came in ranked second in the
state in class 2B. Their mar-
gin of victory in their three
previous games. was thirty
five points a game. The BHS
Tiger defense was stingy all
night, allowing only one score
in the ballgame.
The weather was a factor
all night. With both teams
having trouble with ball
security, the Tigers lost two
fumbles with Fl. High losing
three turnovers.The game
field was as wet as I can
remember for a game with
both teams sloshing around
having trouble with footing.
This was a district game
for. the Tigers, making the
upcoming games against
Bozeman and Chipley must
win games in order to make
the playoffs. The Tigers went
toe to toe for four quarters
and never quit fighting in the
game. I told them after the
game I was disappointed that
we lost, but the team had
nothing to hang their head
about. They played as hard
as I could have asked for four
quarters.
We did riot take advantage
of the one golden scoring
opportunity we had in the
third quarter with no score in
the game. We did not take
care of the football with first
and goal at the seven yard
line, turning it over on a fum-
ble. If we had scored on that


drive the outcome may have
been in our favor. Ifs and
but's don't win football
games, execution wins foot-
ball games. We must execute
better on offense if we're
going to have any hope of
making the playoffs this sea-
son. The defense is only giv-
ing up 7 points a game, but
offensively we're not taking
advantage of scoring oppor-
tunities and letting games
slip away.
We are now 2-2 on the sea-
son with a 14-6 loss to
Marianna and a 7-0 loss to
Fl. High. This team could
easily be 4-0 with a little
more production on offense.
The Tigers have our tough-
est challenge this year as we
travel to an old rival Wakulla
this week. Wakulla is unde-
feated with victories the last
two weeks over Leon and
Tallahassee Rickards. They
are a big, fast and physical
ball team. They are now a
class 3A team, in the district
with Godby, Rickards, Bay
High and East Gadsden. This
will be a David vs Goliath
matchup, the Tigers must be
able to move the chains,
score some points and take
some pressure off the
defense.
Thanks to all the fahs that
braved the weather last week
and came to the game. We
will need your support more
than ever this week as we
travel to Wakulla. The game
will kickoff at 6:30 CST. Hope
to see you at the game. GO
TIGERSI!

_ I


BY ANNIE JO HOUSE
Blountstown High School
holds many fond memories
for me. Thinking back on my
time there, I had the time of
my life.
I get together with my
friends once a week and often
times our conversations turn
to our high school and college
years. They all laugh
because I would go back to
high school in a heartbeat. I
loved it! The friends I've met
in Atlanta were all raised in
big cities, high school meant
something different to them.
Going to BHS was more than
a high school or a stepping
stone to college, it was safe
and comfortable place to
hang out and learn.
The teachers at BHS nur-
tured their students. They
reared us to become success-
ful people, not in an academ-
ic or work related sense nec-
essarily, but they encouraged
us to be productive, well-
rounded and moral citizens.
Dr. Summers stands out in
my mind to this day as one of
my favorite teachers ever. We
used to hope that there
would be something on the
morning news about history,
we knew if there was, then we
would get out of talking
about math. He loved to talk
about history. Dr. Summers
understood that we needed to
be well-rounded; math wasn't
the only thing he wanted us
to walk out of his class know-
ing.
All of the teachers promot-
ed our social growth as well
as academic. They didn't
hesitate to sponsor clubs,
competitions or take groups
on trips. I went on a lot of
school trips with Mrs.
McCrone during my -four
years at BHS. In her classes
and on those trips I created
relationships with juniors
and seniors, those friend-
ships are as close to me as
the ones of the peers my age.
I also met students from
other schools that later
ended up being people I went
to Chipola and then UF with;
I still keep in touch with
them today. The,teachers at
BHS gave us opporturuties to
be successful -in and out of
the classroom.
During my high school


Johanna Van Lierop, Annie Jo House, and Amber Goodman.


years, sports were big. Even
though they weren't the best,
sports years BHS has seen,
we were diligent fans. We
cheered on the Tigers as if
they were state champions.
After every Friday night bas-
ketball or football game, we
somehow always ended up at
Pizza Hut. We took every
booth and table in the place.
Those are some of my best
memories. We could go
there, relax, have fun, laugh


Scholastic Book Fair
Altha School will, host a
Scholastic Book Fair October
1 - 5 in our Media Center.
Families, teachers, and the

The Book Fair brings chil-
dren, teachers and families
together within a school and
community to celebrate read-


and cut up. When pizza hut
closed, it was off to some-
one's house (usually mine).
The fun didn't end when it
was time for everyone to go
home, though. 'Amber,
DeAnna and Johann almost
always slept over. We would
stay, up all night laughing
and having a good time.

Carl Edwards
Born: Aug. 15, 1979
Sponsor: Office Depot
Crew Chief: Wally Brown
Car: Ford
Biography:
Carl Edwards' big break came in 2002, when he
competed in 7 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series
events for MB Motorsports. His best finish in the
seven races was 8th. However, it was enough to
impress Jack Roush, and Edwards became a
full-time Truck Series competitor in 2003, driving
the #99 Ford F-150 sponsored by Superchips. In
August of 2004, he made his Nextel Cup Series
debut, replacing Jeff Burton, who left the team,
in the #99 Ford Taurus for Roush Racing, at the
Michigan International Speedway. In 2005,
Edwards became a full-time driver in both the
Nextel Cup and Busch Series. On March 19,
2005, Edwards won the Aaron's 312 at the
Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Georgia,
recording his first Busch Series win. The next
day, he beat Jimmie Johnson by 2-hundredths of
a second to win the Golden Corral 500 at the
same track for his first Nextel Cup Series win.
Lest year, Edwards' missed the Chase for the
Cup. His best finish was at Michigan Speedway
where he finished 2nd,


Months of speculation ended Wednesday when Dale ,.' ,
Eamhardt Jr. announced deals with PespiCo., the maker of
Mountain Dew and the brand's AMP energy drink, and the
National Guard to sponsor his No. 88 Chevrolet next season at
Hendrick Motorsports. Dale Jr. isn't the first Eamhardt to drive
the No. 88 in NASCAR. His grandfather, Ralph, drove a No. 88
Oldsmobile for Petty Enterprises in the 1957 Virginia 500. Eamhardt has driven the No.
8 Budweiser Chevrolet full-time for DEI since 2000, and he tried to take the No. 8 with
him to Hendrick. But stepmother Teresa Eamhardt refused to give up her rights to it.


Carl Edwards won on Sunday at Dover
International Speedway but after the race, he failed
his postrace inspection. The right rear fender of his
car was too low and NASCAR this week could give
Edwards a fine and dock him crucial points.
NASCAR spokesman Ramsey Potson said, "This is
a height violation. It is not one where we believe the
structure of the body has been manipulated." Jeff
Gordon took over the points lead, with Tony Stewart
in second place. Jimmie Johnson, who had led the
standings entering the day, fell to fourth, The race
had 13 caution periods.


Which of the following drivers have won the
Daytona 500 and the Brickyard 400 in the
same season?


a) Dale Eamhardt
b) Richard Petty


c) Bobby Allison
d) Dale Jarrett

Volunteers are

needed in

Calhoun Co.
Calhoun County currently
has lots of volunteer needs
and a wide range of positions
to offer and RSVP is looking
to recruit a few good individ-
uals to fill these positions.
RSVP is a federally funded
volunteer program aimed at
utilizing the skills and life
experiences of seniors to
address community needs.
Volunteers receive FREE
accident and personal liabili-
ty insurance, training, place-
ment, recognition, and a pro-
gram newsletter.
According to Maranda
Hartman, RSVP Coordinator
for Calhoun County, "there
are a lot of things people can
do in Calhoun County to
help. We need volunteers to
work with animals at the
animal shelter, students,
seniors, and the community
at large."
If you are interested in
volunteering, contact
Maranda at the Settlement
at 674-2777 or 643-7096 or

Board Meeting and Retreat
on Wednesday, Oct. 3, at
11a.m. at the Workforce
Center One Stop in
Marianna.
The tentative agenda will
include: Financial Report,
Committee Memberships,
Executive Director Report
and Data Reporting. The
call-in. number is 1-888-808-
6959, guest code: 7475102.
For addition information
on this meeting or agenda,
call 580-747-5400, ext. 102.

Firefighters-
breathing apparatus, must
then work as a team to lift
the downed firefighter out the
window and into the hands of
waiting firefighters outside.
"When watching the train-
ing video, it looked easy, but
as we began attempting to lift
guys out the windows, things
got a lot more difficult," say
Chief Ben Hall. 'The only way
to learn this technique is to
practice the drill and work
through the individual
details."
Blountstown's Firefighters
continue to train in these
and other areas with a goal to
provide superior service to
the citizens of Blountstown.

Memories of BHS


ketball games were fun, but
baseball with Coach Daniels
and the baseball players was
a blast. Every year Johanna
and I somehow always con-
vinced Coach Daniels to let
us be bat girls. I don't know
what he was thinking. We
were quite the pair and have
been since out reign at BES.
The two of us together with a
dugout full of baseball play-
ers, I don't think we kept a
whole lot of stats. ,
When there weren't
games, we always managed
to find something else to get
into. Before I could drive,
Johanna and I would practice
in her little red car in the
backyard or in my jeep up
and down the street. It was
fun to have your best friend
as your neighbor. My friends
and I were really thankful
when Amber turned 16. We
all piled up in the Dirt
Dobber and finally got to go
farther than we could walk
for lunch. Oh and there were
trips to Panama City, an
hour's drive to beaches,
movies and restaurants that
served something other than
'pizza. We also enjoyed the


occasional bog-in or late
night 4-wheeler expeditions.
I can remember one late
night at Josh Shelton's house
when we decided we wanted
to go "ridin". We took the
Gators out on his land for
hours. I didn't think we'd
ever find our way back home.
Blountstown High School
and the friends I made there
are precious to me. Every
year I bring a crew of my new
friends back home. When we
pass BHS they want to hear
stories and memories of my


time there. They love them
almost as much as I do.
Blountstown High School is a
special place. It is full of peo-
ple who have always worked
together to make every stu-
dent feel important and suc-
cessful. Graduates of BHS
take what they have learned
with them into the "real"
world and we are all better for
our time there. Thank you
Blountstown High School for
making us better people and
giving us all the time of our
lives.

IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR
- LOVEBUGS!
Reprinted from the
University of Florida, IFAS
Extension, Solutions for Your
Life (http:/ / solutionsfory-
ourlife. ufl.edu)
The slow-moving lovebug,
often attached to a mate, is
familiar to most people in the
southern United States as
the bug guts splattered all
over their cars in the summer
and early fall. Originally an
invasive species from Central
America, the lovebug--which
is harmless to humans--is
now found throughout
Florida.
Origins. Contrary to popu-
lar belief, this insect was not
introduced to the state by the
University of Florida. Over
the course of the twentieth
century, lovebugs migrated
from Central America, travel-
ing through Texas and
Louisiana to get to Florida.
Attractants. Lovebugs are
attracted to diesel and gaso-
line exhaust fumes. Hot
engines and the vibrations of
automobiles apparently con-
tribute to the attraction of
lovebugs to highways.
Active times. Lovebugs are
usually active between 10
a.m. and 4 p.m., in tempera-
tures above 84�F.
Mating season. Each gen-
eration lasts about four
weeks in May and September.
Typically there are two main
generations during this. time,
but the insects can be seen
throughout the summer.
Problems. Large numbers
of lovebugs can reduce visi-
bility, etch automobile paint,
and cause liquid-cooled
engines to overheat.
Solutions. Within about
twenty minutes after a love-
bug-filled drive, wash your
car with water for about five
minutes and then scrub it to
remove most of the lovebugs
without harm to automobile
paint. A hood air deflector or
screen will reduce the num-


ber of spattered lovebugs on
your car.
Pesticides. Chemical con-
trols are ineffective, as the
lovebug is widespread and
continually drifts onto high-
ways from adjacent areas.

Management (IPM) For more
information about lovebugs

HAVE YOU EVER HEARD
OF FLORIDA LAKEWATCH?
From the University of
Florida, IFAS Extension,
Florida LAKEWATCH website
http: / / lake watch,. ifas.
ufl.edu/
Florida LAKEWATCH is a
volunteer citizen lake/river
monitoring program that
facilitates "hands-on" citizen
participation in the -manage-
ment of Florida waters
through monthly monitoring
activities.
Coordinated through the
University of Florida's
Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences/
Department of Fisheries and
Aquatic Sciences, the pro-
gram has been in existence
since 1986. In 1991 the
Florida Legislature recog-
nized the importance of the
program and established
Florida LAKEWATCH in the
state statutes (Florida
Statute 1004.49.). LAKE-
WATCH 's now one; of the
largest ,lake monitoring pro-


grams in the nation with over
1800 trained citizens moni-
toring 600+ lakes, in more
than 40 counties.
Florida has over 7700
lakes larger than 10 acres
and probably over 100,000
smaller bodies of water.
Detailed scientific informa-
tion exists for less than 10%
of these lakes. Consequently,
researchers and government
agencies charged with man-
aging the lakes have little
data on which to base their
strategies., Florida LAKE-
WATCH enables the public to
be involved in a cooperative
teamwork approach to solv-
ing lake quality problems.
The information generated
from this program is made
available to anyone who
wants it, including the volun-
teers themselves, interested
citizens, lake management
groups, schools, as well as
government and regulatory
agencies. Most of the lakes
that are being accepted into
the program have never been
monitored before.
Florida LAKEWATCH
works directly with citizens
who live on (or use) lakes,
rivers or waterways and are
willing to participate in a
long-term monitoring effort.
To become part of the LAKE-
WATCH team, volunteers are
required to have access to a
boat, practically any kind,
and complete a training ses-
sion on their lake which
takes about, two hours. The

maker and a member of the
First Baptist Church in
Marianna.
Mrs. Pittman was preced-
ed in death by a,daughter,
Joyce Miller, and a grandson,
Allan Miller.
Survivors include her hus-
band, Richard E. (Dick)
Pittman, of Marianna; two
sons, Edward Pittman and
his wife, Kay, of
Blountstown, Robert M.
Pittman and his wife, June,
of Boynton Beach, Fla.; one
daughter, Karen D. Lipford,
and her husband, Roland, of
Marianna; one brother,
Arthur Henderson, and his
wife, Louise, of Marianna;
one sister, Della Mae Exum,
of Marianna; eleven grand-

Hiding From God
I Samuel 10:22
Israel wanted an earthly
king. God chose a man who
would be more than capable
for this assignment. Even
though Saul seemed very
reluctant and was trying to
hide, God knew where he,
v.as. Saul was hidi-ng-among --
the baggage.


Sought tof

" member
There. was a time
when a boy could
expect to inherit his
father's workbench. If
.. his father were a
carpenter, the son
TimAdams looked forward to the
Fuera.treao, r day when he would be
a carpenter. The
shoemaker trained his
son in the art of making shoes. The
candlemaker, the wagonmaker....all of these
handed down their workbenches to their
children.
Times have changed! Today the farmer's son
is more likely to become an accountant than a
farmer. The carpenter's boy will likely be an
insurance salesman.
But, do they still inherit anything from their
father? This you can be sure - many of 'the
father's characteristics and traits will be with the
boy all his life. He will act very much like his
father. The father may not give the boy a
workbench, but he can be sure his son will be
molded by his individual role as his father.

Good or bad - Dad will influence the boy's life.

Mrs. Wells attended
Florida State University and
on November 14, 1938, was
married to Ashton Wells, Sr.
in her hometown of
Blountstown. They moved to
,Andalusia in 1943 and
became members of the First
Baptist Church. They operat-
ed Wells Grocery and Market
. for a' number of years and
Mrs. Wells subsequently was
employed at Mallette Drug
Company. Mrs. Wells was
well known for her love of her
family, her church and her
artwork, which included oil,
pastel and china painting.
Mrs. Wells was preceded.
in death by her husband,
Ashton Wells, Sr.; her par-
ents, Ralph Jackson Connell,
Sr. and Carl Parrish Connell;

We know of men and
women today who are hiding
among different kinds of bag-
gage. It could be the baggage
of one's own desires, not
wanting to give up ones own
plans. Some hide behind the
opinions of others around
them and back away. Some
:.hide for- fear - of-ifbt- -being.
capable to do what God has
asked them. Some do not
want to be put on the spot.
Whatever the reason may be,
God knows where each per-
son is. He has reasons for
the selections He makes. He
never makes mistakes, but
how often we are hesitant to
take responsibility because
we may feel it interferes with
our way of life. Lord, that's
not what I want to do!
God has a plan for each
one of us, and we will be
much happier if we will will-
ingly accept His plan for us. I
may not feel adequate, but
that is the time I must trust
in His plan and the fact that
He will use me as He sees
best. I will gain strength in
His promise: "My strength is
made perfect in weakness" II
Cor. 12:9. Ah yes, God
always knows what is best for
us, we should not hide but
accept and surrender our will,
to His.

While recognizing 50 years of
achievement, the Youth
Ranches will reach another
amazing milestone. By the
end of the year, the organiza-
tion will have served over
100,000 children since it
began in 1957, when two
sheriffs founded the first
"Boys Ranch" located along
the Suwannee River in Live

Ranches consists of four res-
idential facilities and two
camps, serving all 67 coun-
ties in Florida.
The main purpose of the
Florida Sheriffs Youth
Ranches is to provide a posi-
tive and healthy living envi-
ronment for at-risk boys and
girls. Children come to the
Youth Ranches from a variety
of backgrounds. Some have
been neglected or abused,
other might struggle socially
and academically. Regardless
of their past, the Youth
Ranches provides hope for
their future. Unlike correc-
tional institutions (such as.
boot camps), this organiza-
tion serves a different type of

Calhoun-Liberty Hospital Administrator answers the question...




"What is emergency room triage?"


BY RON GILLIARD
Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital Administrator

Recently, I received a call
from a very upset Father,
complaining about a long
wait his son had in our
Emergency Room (ER) the
night before. As I try to do
with any complaint, I listened
intently as he told me how
the family waited and waited,
even while other patients that
came in after them were seen
ahead of them.
This is a complaint I get
quite often. This has always
been the case and not just
here at Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital, but in every hospi-
tal I have worked, including
the Air Force.
I asked the concerned par-
ent the medical problem his
son was experiencing. He
said he had a very bad ear-
ache for several days. I tried
to explain that there was no
doubt in my mind, that his
son's condition was by far the
most important thing in the
world to him. I then said we
use the triage system to ini-
tially evaluate patients that
come to the ER for care. ,He
said, 'Triage - what's that?"
I tried to explain it to him
and would like to do the same
for you.
The system we use is
called "triage" and it is the
basis for the operation of any
hospital emergency room.
Triage simply means that we
do a preliminary screen of the
patient and his or her stated
problem. It comes from the
military.
I remember in the Air
Force when we conducted
what we called "mass casual-
ty drills" with lots of simulat-
ed injured patients. We
always used this triage sys-
tem. We had colored tags to
place on the patients once a
triage medical officer, either a
doctor, or a nurse, or perhaps
a physician assistant, had
evaluated the patients for the
order of priority of treatment.
Red was always the most


immediate patients) to be
seen, always involving the
.potential loss of life or limb if
not treated and treated
immediately.
We used green tags for
those less emergefnt patients
that could be treated later.
This category of patents are
called minimal. You can
guess, unfortunately, what a
black tag indicated. We
called those "delayed"
patients.
Not surprisingly, when I
got to Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital, I discovered we
used ,the same system in the
event we have a disaster situ-
ation but also for all patients
presenting to the emergency
room for treatment. We don't
use tags in the ER but we do
assess and evaluate those
patients that need to be seen
immediately as opposed to
those that .can be safely
delayed.
At one of my prior hospi-
tals, we had killer, devastat-.
ing tornadoes that took the
lives of eighteen citizens.
About 200 more came to the
emergency room that night
and we used this triage sys-
tem. It worked in an amaz-
ingly efficient way and result-
ed in the saving of many
lives. I saw this with my own
eyes that night.
I explained to the dad that
if there were more immediate
patients requiring attention,
such as cardiac or stroke
cases, severe lacerations
from perhaps a car accident
or even pregnant ladies with
problems, the child's ear-
ache, while certainly an
emergency to the parents,
simply may not have been a
high enough priority in the
triage system to warrant
immediate treatment. In this
case, the father did say the
child had it for several days.
As a matter of fact, on a
recent weekend, two preg-
nant ladies came to our ER
and were in labor. We safely
delivered the babies and
trust me, they were triaged
and seen ahead of other


RON GILLIARD


patients already in the ER.
(Our staff and physicians did
a wonderful job with both of
these cases and I am very
proud of them!)
We place a lot of emphasis
on keeping our patients and,
their families informed of the
situation in the emergency
room and how long the wait
may be. If this is not done,
we are deficient in the level of
service I expect of my staff.
But they are pretty good at it.
Patients with more urgent
medical conditions may even
arrive after the less emergent
patients and still be treated
first. Sometimes our emer-
gency room is very busy. We
are seeing an average of 700
patients each month.
Sometimes it seems like all
700 are there at the same


time!
Another recent complaint
involved a Mom that was very
upset for having to wait a
long time and even madder
that other folks were seen
ahead of her child, even some
arriving after her.
Her child had a rash. I
asked her did the rash devel-
op that day? She replied that
the child had it for several
days but she could not get to
a doctor's office. I again
explained triage.
These two examples are
typical of the Emergency
Room. My investigation in
both cases revealed that
more serious cases, after
being triaged, were being
seen ahead of their loved
ones.
Neither of them really
wanted to hear this. They
both said they would use
another hospital the next
time. I told them I hope they
would use us for their future
emergency care needs and all
other services that we pro-
vide.
However, I also told them
that if they present to an ER
in any other hospital under
the same conditions, they
would in my opinion, face a
potential long wait. They still
were not happy but I feel I
told them the truth.
We use the triage system
in our emergency room The
key word, other than triage is
emergency. It is not a con-'
venience clinic.


Books, videos needed


The book drive sponsored
by the Calhoun , County
School District's Reading
Coaches is still going strong.
The book drive will officially
end September 30, but the
reading coaches want to
remind you that you can
make a donation at any
school anytime during the
year.
They are excited about the
extra reading and video
materials being donated, as


this gives students access to
a wide variety of material. If
you haven't made your dona-
tions yet, there are donation
boxes at each school, area
churches, and the
Superintendent's Office for
your convenience.
'Thank you for helping our
students become lifelong
readers as they develop a love
for reading through quality
media materials. What better
gift could we give?


The Emergency Room at
Calhoun-Liberty is open 24
hours a day, seven days a
week to serve our patients.
We will treat those that are
true emergencies first.
Again, it is not a first come,
first served area.
I felt bad about the out
come of these two cases. My
goal is for all of our patients
and their families to be
pleased with our services.
I have been very pleased
with the feed back I get on
our ER. We're not perfect,
but these two examples are
the exceptions rather than
the many positive stories I


hear. The two new babies are
better examples of what these
folks do. It takes dedicated,
professional, caring and com-
passionate people to work in
this specialized. area. I feel
we have just that here.
Again, I'm very proud of the
work they do.
If you have questions
about triage, our Emergency
Room or anything else about
the hospital, give me a call at
674-5411, ext 206.
PS - our Adopt-a-Room
Program is up and running
and the rooms are going fast!
You better contact us if you
wish to adopt one.
