BY JUDY LUDLOW
County.Extension Director

a rich and proud farming heritage.
It is, therefore, a privilege to
announce that the Mr. Bernice
Chambers Family has been selected
by the Cooperative Extension
Service as Calhoun County's 2007
Outstanding Farm Family of the
year.
Mr. Chambers and his family
were honored at the Annual
Calhoun County Farm Bureau
Banquet on September 27. Awards


were presented to Mr. Chambers by
the University of Florida
Cooperative Extension Service, the
Calhoun County Farm Bureau, the
North Florida Fair, and Wakulla
Bank.
The Outstanding Farm Family of
the Year Award is given to a family
whose pride, dedication, commit-
ffient to agriculture, and love of
farming is a way of life. Mr.
Chambers reflects all of these qual-
ities. He has been farming for 70
years and still farms today! He has
farmed cotton, soybeans, peanuts,
corn, livestock, and most recently


Sometimes you

Fall was in the air Saturday evening at the Panhandle

produce on his U-Pick farm today.
His sons Darwin and Anthony, both
Calhoun County residents, worked
with their dad in the fields for many
years.
Mr. Chambers has tirelessly cul-
tivated 30 to 500 acres in Alabama
and north Florida, farming in
Calhoun County for the past 47
years. Mr. Chambers is proud of his
farming heritage, as he should be,
but it is also immediately evident
that he is equally proud of his fam-
ily.
Join us in congratulating Mr.
Chambers and his family.

placed on administrative leave with pay while authorities
investigate accusations made against him by a teenage girl.
Information surfaced Sept. 20 alleging Ofc. Charles
"Chuck" Bender of Marianna had "improper conduct" with
the girl. BPD Chief Glenn Kimbrel immediately contacted
the Florida Department. of Law Enforcement and they
began an inquiry into the allegations.
"The inquiry is progressing at this time and should be
completed by the end of next week," Chief Kimbrel stated in
a press release Friday.
Karen Mason, a spokesperson with FDLE, spoke to The.
County Record Monday and said, "At this point, it's an
active investigation and that's pretty much all we can say
at this time."

strange

doggone


court case
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
. "This is a strange case."
That was the comment
from Calhoun County Judge
Kevin Grover after listening
to a string of witnesses in a
dog custody case that landed
in his chambers Friday
morning.
The bizarre case began
back in January when Patti
Wood, 48, a woman who
operates a shelter for ani-
mals at her Abe Springs
home, was arrested for
allegedly stealing two dachs-
hunds that had recently
been given to another local
animal advocate, Joy Jones.
Wood accused Jones of
being an animal hoarder and
backyard breeder. Jones
said she volunteered count-
less hours caring for animals
and would never mistreat a
dog.
For the past nine months,
Wood refused to relinquish
the dachshunds. However.
after a hearing Sept. 7,
Judge Grover ordered Wood
to return the dogs, known as
Scooter and Duduley, to
Jones. Inv. Michael Bryant
of the Calhoun County
Sheriffs Office retrieved two
dachshunds from Wood a
week ago, however, when he
brought them to Jones, she
immediately stated, "Those
aren't my dogs!"
At an informal hearing
Friday, Jones stated her
dogs were registered dachs-
hunds, but the female
returned to her was a mixed
breed. Her. female was two
and half years old; the vet
says the dog returned to her
was between 8 and 10. The
male was also older and a
different color. Witnesses
also gave testimony that the
dogs were not the same.
Wood had her own wit-
nesses who stated the dogs
were, in fact, the same
dachshunds taken back in
January.
Jones advised the court
she had DNA on her dachs-
hunds that would prove the
dogs returned to her are not
the ones that had been
taken. It will take four to six
weeks for results.
"This is not over with,"
said Jones. "When the DNA
comes back, it will prove
these are not my dogs."

To the Editor:
The Blountstown FFA
Chapter held a cake auction
for the Calhoun County
Chapter of the Florida Farm
Bureau at their banquet,
which was held on
September 27th. Many kind
people generously donated
their home-made cakes for
the auction.
There were fourteen cakes
of many varieties that were
sold. The highest bidder was
Mrs. Charlotte Daniels, and
she bought a fourteen-layer


chocolate cake baked and
donated by Mrs. Heather
Leonard.
Along with the auction,
there was an excellent dinner
provided by the Farm Bureau
and Mr. Raymond Russell.
The Blountstown FFA would
like to thank all who bid on a
cake (or two), the -Florida
Farm Bureau and, of course,
those who baked the lovely
and delicious cakes for us.

Attention Citizens

Calhoun. County School Board is going to vote October 9th on
whether to put a 1/2 cents sales tax referendum on the
January 29th Presidential Preference Primary ballot. If this 1/2
cents sales tax proposal passes, the monies collected would
be used to replace as much as possible of the two mills
recently levied by the school board for capital outlay funds.
Capital outlay funds are the monies used by the school board
to build and maintain buildings and facilities. This tax, if
passed by the voters, would be collected beginning January
1, 2009. The school board is considering putting this sales tax
referendum on the ballot because monies generated through
sales tax causes the burden of educating our children to be
more equitable. At the present time, the burden lies with the
property owners only, but with the sales tax, everyone in the
community would have the opportunity to support the building
of new school facilities.

ADDRESSES RURAL
ISSUES.
Last week I traveled to
Palatka for the EFI Rural
Issues Working Group, where
several key topics were dis-
cussed. A majority of the
meeting focused on economic
development, particularly the
details of establishing rela-
tionships, getting to know the
potential clients needs and
much more. Other items on


the table were legislative
issues, education forum
update, state budget reduc-
tion information and rural
transportation planning. All
state agencies working
together to assist our rural
counties orchestrate the
complexities of doing busi-
ness in today's global econo-
my. It was a very helpful
though intense meeting. The
Strategic Planning Workshop
will be held October 30th in
Ocala, which I will attend, to
represent Calhoun County.

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC),
Division of Law Enforcement
urges boat owners to protect
their boats from theft and to
avoid boat title fraud
schemes.
More than 1,200 boats
have been reported stolen in
Florida this year. That
reflects a 30-percent increase
compared to the same period
last year. Also, the FWC said
there is a growing trend in
theft of "go-fast" type boats.
"Go-fast boats, 26-39 feet
long, are being targeted with
greater frequency than in
previous years," said Lt. John
Humphreys of FWC's
Investigations Section.
'These boats are targeted by
criminals because of their
high-dollar value and for use
in maritime-based smuggling
activities."
FWC officers possess a
tremendous amount of expe-
rience and knowledge relative
to the boating industry. This
resource is available to law
enforcement partners and
private industry through
active partnerships with the
Florida Marine Intelligence
Unit (FMIU) and through sev-
eral other marine intelli-
gence-sharing initiatives.
"FWC provides investiga-
tive coordination and intelli-
gence analysis support to a
myriad of sheriffs offices and
police departments around
the state. We offer everything
from assistance with identify-
ing boats and 'suspects to
predicting future theft
trends," Humphreys said.
; Dade, Monroe and
Broward counties have the
highest number of boat
thefts; however, thefts have
been reported from every


county in the state.
"Investigations can quickly
become highly complex and
involve not only grand theft,
but also violations such as
title fraud, insurance fraud,
larceny, alteration of hull
identification numbers and
tax evasion," Humphreys
said.
"Boat theft is big business
and a growing trend in
Florida," said Capt. David
Bullard of FWC's
Investigations Section.
"Frequently, boat thefts are
linked to larger issues, such
as organized crime, illegal
immigration and domestic
security threats. Because of
this, it's essential to work-
with federal and local law
enforcement agencies to com-


bat the problem."
"Protecting Florida's
boaters and waterways is
vital to FWC's mission," said
FWC Commission Chairman
Rodney Barreto. "It's critical-
ly important that Florida's
yast boating community take
precautions to avoid becom-
ing victims of these crimes."
Readers are reminded to
contact their local sheriffs
office or police department to
report a stolen boat or sus-
pected boat title fraud.
Additional information
and tips for avoiding boat
theft and boat title fraud can
be found at
MyFWC.com/Law and at the
Florida Marine Intelligence
Unit's Web site,

Tigers lose to strong Wakulla team, 16-0


The Blountstown Tigers
will have a week off to heal
after a bruising battle with a
very strong Wakulla team
Friday night. The Tigers gave
the Class AAA, 7th ranked
War Eagles a real test from
start to finish but fell 16-0 to
drop to 2-3 (0-1) on the sea-
son. .
"I was disappointed we
didn't score to make it a clos-


er game, but I .think our
coaches and players see us
turning the corner," coach
Greg Jordan said Monday.
"Our three losses have been
14-6, 7-0, and 16-0 to
schools with a combined
record of 12-0. I think the
tough competition will help
us in our final four games."
The Tigers will travel to
Northview on October 14 for


another tough contest.
"Northview has won the Dist.
1 Class 2B title the last two
years, but lost to Vernon in
'05 and Chipley in '06. We'll
have a second charter bus
going with about 30 seasts
available on a first come
basis for the trip. Fan' can
call the school office for infor-
mation," Jordan noted.
A fourth down and 10play
in the first quarter caught
the Tigers out of position and
Wakulla hit a long pass for
the game's first score. The
PAT was missed.
In the second quarter, a
Cory Cox pass was picked off
and returned 69 yards for a
score. The PAT and a 37
yard field goal later in the
second quarter was all the
scoring for Wakulla.
Jeremy Watson recovered
a fumble caused by Ryan
Baker in the third quarter
setting up the Tigers at the
Wakulla 15. An easy TD run
by Baker from the one was
erased by a penalty and the
Tigers were stopped on
fourth down. Another drive
to the Wakulla 30 ended with
a fumble.
"We've got to eliminate the
mistakes on offense. We're
just not making plays,"
Jordan stated.
The Tigers led in first
downs 10-9. The Tigers ran
57 plays to Wakulla's 44.
The Tigers rushed for 85
yards to Wakulla's. 72.
Wakulla was 8 of 18 for 232
yards passing while the
Tigers were 7 of 17 for 55
yards and the one costly
interception.
Baker led the defense in
on 13 tackles, 1 sack and 4
tackles for a loss. Jeremy
Watson was in on 9 tackles.


BY BLOUNTSTOWN TIGER A


HEAD COACH GREG JO

The Tigers traveled to
Wakulla this past Friday and
played a very tough and
physical game against the
third ranked class 3A team
and lost by a score of 16-0.
Wakulla was a team that
used to be in our class 2A
district when I played in the
mid 1980's. They now have
an enrollment of almost 1300
students from , which to
choose from. Last year the
Tigers played up in class,
defeating Leon two years in a
row. The difference is quality
of opponents. Lately, Leon
doesn't belong in the same
sentence as Wakulla as far as
success on the football field.
This season, Wakulla defeat-
ed Leon 40-24 in the second
week of the season.
Getting back to our game
vs Wakulla. Let me start by
saying thank you to the fans
that traveled the journey
through the forest to get to
the game. Those of you that
made it, and we had a good
crowd, saw the Tigers fight a
much larger Wakulla team
toe to toe the entire game.
Wakulla scored their first
TD in the first quarter on a
4th down and 10, completing
a 39 yard TD pass to lead 6-.
0. In the second quarter, the
Tigers were moving the foot-
ball, a pass was intercepted
and returned 70 yards for a
TD and Wakulla led 13-0.
After an exchange of punts


RDAN

Wakulla drives right before
half and gets a field goal. to
lead 16-0 at half. From that
point on Wakulla did not get
into the endzone again. The
Tigers scored in the third
quarter, but an illegal forma-
tion was called and negated
the TD and we were unable to
score after the penalty.
The going was tough offen-
sively against a very talented
Wakulla defense that has.
several Division 1 starters
playing. Blountstown was
able to move the football, we
were just unable to get
points.
Even though we lost, this
was probably the best game
we've played all season. I told
the players if we play this
well the rest of the season we
had lost our last game. I
hope when the season is over
we can look back and say the
Wakulla game was the turn-
ing point of our season.
The Tigers have an open
week this week. We will trav-
el to Bratt Northview on
October the 12th. The athlet-
ic department will have a lim-
ited number of seats on a
charter bus available to the
fans on a first come, first
serve basis. Contact the front
office at Blountstown High
School at 674-5724 to find
out morel
Hope to see you in two
weeks at Brattll GO

Memories of BHS


BY TERRI GRIFFIN WALDRON
BHS Class of '87

To me, Blountstown High
School is a place full of fond
memories. Even before I had
the honor of attending BHS,
it was a place that L stood in
awe of. While attending ele-
mentary school and through- '
out my junior high experi-
ence, BHS was the place on
my mind that I cpuld not wait
to attend. Standing so tall,
and so beautiful, with all the
red brick and white trim you
could imagine. The stairs
that connected the two main
buildings were a kids dream
to march up and down, a
place that desired someone to
climb. But all the images I
had of BHS could not com-
pare to my first year on cam-
pus as a freshman. The
entire campus was full of
BHS pride. The teachers who
wore red to show off their
school colors; the office staff
that made sure all the kids
knew who, what, and where
about the campus; the jani-
tor, who always made sure
the place looked great; and
the coaches, who not only
taught us how to play the
sports, but also taught us the
real meaning of being a team.
It wasn't all about winning,
that was important, but we
also learned the old saying
about there is no I in team.
My freshman year was the
year the buildings came
down and a new facility was
born. Talk about interesting
times, attending a campus
that was a construction site.
We had classes anywhere the
teachers could find space
from the band hall, to the
cabinet shop. There were
many a raining day that
English class never actually
happened due to the length of
time it took to bus the stu-
dents over to the ag facility
and back. Not that any of the
students slowly loaded the
.bus or anything, these things
just took time. For almost
two years the school was
under construction. During
this time a lot of physical
changes took place on that
campus. But some things
never -changed: the faculty's
desire to provide a quality
education - no matter the
physical conditions; the stu-
dents desire to test the teach-
ers limitations - using the
physical conditions of the
school; the Tiger Pride that
roared during Homecoming
and Spirit Week festivities;
the parents support during
any sporting or educational
activity that took place; all
these things remained when
the new facility was complete.
It was a fine facility; with no
leaks -and no stairs, and you
didn't have to catch a bus on
a rainy day to get to your next
class. The halls were com-
plete with new lockers, shiny
display cases, and doors that
actually locked were an
added benefit for the faculty.


Yes I sometimes missed the
glory of the old BHS, but the
new BHS was taking shape.
By the time I became a
senior, I had built many
memories from my 4 years on
the campus. Homecoming
parades, building floats,
Coronation, Student Council
participation, yearbook staff,
sports, the old gym, pep
rallys, football games, spring
break, choral musicals. All of
these are valuable to me, but
I think the most valuable
memory I have came from my
education at BHS. Sure. I
was taught the basics;
* History, English, Geometry,
Trig, Chemistry, or at least
the teachers tried to teach me
the basics. But my education
went much further than that.
The teachers that I had
taught me how to go the extra
mile to make a difference.
Don't just do enough to get
by, do enough to make a dif-
ference, and do it with excel-
lence. Those teachers want-
ed us to get an education, but
they also wanted to prepare
us for the future. I learned
things at BHS that I still use
today: Ms. Barnes's home-ec
class that taught me how to
sew on a button; Coach
Watson's class on running
the bases of the softball dia-
mond, and running and run-
ning and running; Ms.
Leonard's typing class; Ms.
Cox's English class, and Ms.


Carolyn McClellan's leader-
ship. Ms. Mac, as I called her
was the student council
sponsor; her ability to relate
to students was uncanny.
She knew what was going on
in our lives and she knew
just want to say and where to
lead when it was needed,
there were times when I was-
n't so sure she didn't have a
direct line to my mother.,
Even though they all taught
different subjects, and with
different styles, they all had
one thing in common, they
cared. They cared to the
point that it was their desire
to change the lives they
touched daily. They wanted
us to get their subjects, but
they also wanted students to
be prepared later in life.
They didn't teach to just sat-
isfy an educational require-
ment, they taught to make a
difference in the future of
their students.
For teachers of today I
would challenge you, even
though you have certain
requirements you have to
meet, don't just teach for
that. Teach to make a differ-
ence in your students, even if
it is just one. You are posi-
tioned to help the society of
tomorrow be prepared for life.
Encourage your students to
never quit and always strive
for excellence.
To parents with kids in
school, I challenge you to

Sponsor: National Guard
Crew Chief: Geoff Smith
Car: Ford
Biography:
Greg Biffle joined the Busch Series in 2001 and
won the Rookie of the Year award while picking
up five wins and finishing fourth in points. He
started competing in NASCAR's top circuit in
2003, and finished in 20th place in the final Nextel
Cup series points. Greg Biffle showed steady
improvement in the 2004 season as he earned
two wins en route to a 17th place finish in the
points standing. 2005 was Biffle's breakout sea-
son. He finished the season tied with teammate
Carl Edwards for second in the Nextel Cup cham-
pionship, thirty-five points behind champion Tony
Stewart. Biffle won the tie-breaker for second
because of his six race victories, the most of any
driver in the Nextel Cup in the 2005 season. In
2006, Biffle won twice, at Darlington Raceway
and Homestead-Miami Speedway. Biffle strug-
gled considerably during the year though, finish-
ing 24th at Pocono, 33rd at the Brickyard and
38th at Watkins Glen. This year, Biffle failed to
qualify for the Chase for the Cup. His first victory
of the year came last week at the LifeLock 400.


Championship contender Tony Stewart will not be penalized for .. ,
cursing on live TV following practice at Kansas Speedway. The *
two-time series champion was talking to Robby Gordon on pit ,
road when he was approached by an ESPN cameraman.
Unaware the camera was live, Stewart said: "What? Get... away
from me," with an obscenity underlining his remark. NASCARtra-
ditionally fines drivers and docks points for cursing on TV, and series officials spent Sunday
reviewing the footage to determine if Stewart should be penalized. After talking with ESPN
officials, Stewart and his Joe Gibbs Racing team, NASCAR decided not to punish him.

Greg Biffle got his first win of the season at Kansas
Speedway on Sunday. He ended a 28-race winless
streak with the victory. The race was stopped twice
for rain delays and was shortened 85 miles
because of darkness. It was a race that saw six
Chase drivers finish 29th or worse. Jimmie Johnson
finished third to reclaim the points lead. Stewart,
who had started the day just two points from the
lead, finished 39th and dropped to fourth. Kevin
Harvick moved up four spots in the standings to
fifth by finishing in sixth place. Carl Edwards, last
week's race winner, finished 37th.

stay involved in your child's
life. Know what they are
learning and reinforce these
things at home. Education
doesn't just come in the class
room.
And to the students at
Blountstown High School I
challenge you to listen, learn,
and enjoy. Don't learn just
what it takes to pass a test,
but learn it so that it stays
with you the rest of your life.
Take pride in your, school and
enjoy this great time in your
life. I know you look forward
to graduation because "it's
over". You don't see this now,
but one day you WILL look
back and -think how great
BHS was and boy do I miss
those days. Enjoy them now
so you never have to look
back and say - why didn't I
get more out of that.
J will always carry with me
the memories of my 4 years
at BHS, and I am glad I expe-
rienced them all. I currently
have 2 nieces in the Calhoun
County School system, and a
5 year old that began the
process this year. I wish for
them to have as many great
memories when they gradu-
ate as I did. I still get excited
attending school functions to
watch them, and can't wait
until my child is there.

Scientist Visits
Have you ever met a real-
life scientist? Fourth through
eighth grade students at
Altha Public School enjoyed a
visit from Dr. Donna Szpyrka
this past week.
Dr. Szpyrka visited science
classes and co-taught les-
sons with each of the teach-
ers. Though the lessons did
involve a little bit of lecture
about important concepts,
they primarily involved
hands-on science experi-
ments conducted by the stu-
dents themselves.
Altha Students Celebrate
Constitution Week
Students from Alice
Marshall's American History
and Amy H. Valenta's
American Government cours-
es commemorated the 220th
anniversary of the U.S.


Dr. Szpyrka is shown teaching about evaporation, condensation, and pre-
cipitation, also known as the Water Cycle, in Mark Brogdon's 4th grade
class. Mr. Brogdon's 4th graders enjoyed three different experiments teaching
the same concept: that when water vapor cools, it returns to liquid form
through the process of condensation, which is why we have dew, fog, and
clouds .. ' '.


Constitution. .
Mrs. Marshall's classes
read the Declaration of
Independence and the
Constitution, watched films
and analyzed primary
sources from this period in
History. Attorneys Carol
Peacock, Law Clerk for the
First District Court of Appeal
and Shad Redmon from the
Florida 14th Judicial Circuit
Public Defender's Office lead,
a stimulating lesson and sub-
sequent discussion on the
origins of American govern-
ment. The Honorable Fred
Lewis of the Florida Supreme
Court initiated the Justice
-Teaching program which
brought Peacock and
Redmon to Altha.
Ms. Valenta's American
Government classes learned
about the Constitution
through debating its ratifica-
tion .from the historical per-
spectives of the Federalists
and the Anti-Federalists.
After using document analy-
sis tools to understand
speeches, letters and publi-
cations, students grouped
themselves into the two fac-
tions. Days of fiery debate
ensued among these high
school seniors who were clad
in wigs made of cotton balls,
recycled paper and bags. The
Altha Federalists and Anti-
Federalists finally agreed to
sign the Constitution and


amend it with the Bill of

i BLOUNTSTOWN
ELEMENTARY SCHOOL NEWS

By Kayla Womble
4th Grade, BES
I would like to tell a story about
a tornado that would change our
lives forever.
One day it started getting dark
and thundering.and lightning. The
wind started blowing very hard. I
was at my aunt Melissa's house,
who works on the ambulance in
Calhoun county, with my mom and
dad. We were watching News"
Channel 7 weather. They s',d that-
Blountstown was covered in red on
the radar.. Then they said Panama
City had a tornado warning. Then
they issued a tornado warning for
Blountstown and one had been
spotted and then the power went out.
We went over to Carr School
which ,was the shelter and as I
looked up I saw a little funnel cloud
trying to come down and I freaked
out! They said it was going down
highway 69 and hit Parrish Lake
Road, and I freaked out some more
because that is where my granny
lives! Finally it got over with, ambu-
lances and cops were down there
and houses were everywhere. Trees
were twisted.
The next. day everyone was sad
because people died that night and
families lost people that they loved!
I'll never forget that night, I hope&we
all learned things we need to do if
there was another one, but I hope
that was the last one!

Who Do We Trust
Psalm 20: 7 & 8
A commercial began: "Do
you need to talk to someone
about your future?" People
were asked to dial a 900
number and talk with a psy-
chic who would supposedly
give them guidance for their
future. Even a well - known
talk show host and a lot of
celebrities assured viewers of
the helpfulnesss of such a
talk with this person.
Each day, millions of peo-
ple depend on strangers to
help them make key deci-
sions. Millions of dollars are
made as confused, insecure
people call for help at the rate
of several dollars a minute.
Christians have a better
source of help when dis-
tressed and in real need. The
Psalmist promised a prompt
answer to prayer, protection
during conflict, help during
crisis, and victory in. all the
battles of life. Many of the
Psalms are prayers of David
and others who learned the
secret of depending on God.


Instead of trusting in one's
own human strength or the
size of one's army, David
depended on God to fight for
Him. Chariots and horses
were strong forces in the
ancient world, yet chariots
were'no match for God, who
made for them watery graves
on the bottom of the Red Sea.
In our time, peddlers of
false doctrine market the
New Age philosophy in many
kinds of disguises. These
may include crystals for heal-
ing, words from psychics for
direction, and meditation for
relaxation. The words of the
Psalmist are worth repeating
by all Christians today: "We
trust in the name of the
Lord." No power on heaven
or on earth can claim our
trust.
The greatest weapon Israel
ever had was trust in their
God. The same is true today.
.The greatest weapon'we have
as Christians facing the
uncertainties of life is trust in
our Lord only and always.

objectives? e
sum up these
questions by
Tim Adams simply stating: "I
Funeral Director want happiness
for me and my
family."
We don't
,particularly want this happiness handed
to us- we want to feel we have
deserved it through our own
contributions and personal efforts. An
inner-instinct tell us nothing worthwhile is
obtained without effort. Common sense
tells us that roses will have thorns and
any adequate road bed has a hard rock
base. 4000 years of recorded history
has taught us this fact. -
One of our most unfair criticisms of
others is: "They have had it handed to
them."
STake a good look at our heritage. We
cannot'ignore our many great legacies -
our freedom...our prosperity.our way of
life! .
These were fought for and won by our
forefathers. People who removed many
thorns'and labored on the hard rock
roadbeds. And didn't they implant most
of the noble ideals within us?
It is well that we remind ourselves that
we, too, will be the forefathers of future
generations and we will be handing them
something - either good or bad.

Blountstown family loses home to fire Chipola Manor residents in city limits


A Blountstown family lost their home, belongings and even their pet in a house fire last week. The Pine Island
home of Mitchell and Marsha Phillips, along with their children, Jara, 7, and Jarrod, 19, caught fire early
Wednesday. Fortunately, they were not home at the time the blaze erupted but, their dog did not survive. The cause
of the fire remains undetermined at this time. The family extends their appreciation to the firefighters with Nettle
Ridge and Blountstown fire departments who battled the. blaze. They are also grateful to those who have been so
generous. 'We want to thank everybody who has called or bought stuff," says the Phillips family. "To thank them
individually would be impossible. Total strangers have given things. Its been heartwarming." If you would like to
contribute, an account has been set up at Superior Bank or contact Marsha's sister, Greta Jenks, at 643-8536.


The City of Blountstown now has 30 new residents after it was confirmed that the senior residential
community, Chipola Manor, off Charlie Johns Street had been annexed into the city back in September
2006. At the request of Chipola Manor resident Mike Calhoun, City Manager James Woods researched
the matter and found that an ordinance had been passed including Chipola Manor inside the bound-
aries of the city. Supervisor of Elections Margie Laramore sent a letter to Chipola Manor residents last
week advising them they are eligible to vote in city elections. Pictured above at a luncheon Friday are
(from-left) City Manager James Woods, Chipola Manor Manager Rick Brunn, Mike Calhoun, Supervisor
of Elections Margie Laramore, and Deputy Supervisor of Elections Melanie Aycock.


BFD says: 'Practice escape plan' Bereavement


It's time for Fire
Prevention Week, and from
October 7-13 Blountstown
Fire Department is joining
forces with the nonprofit
National Fire Protection
Association (NFPA) to remind
local residents to 'Practice
Your Escape Plan.' During
this year's fire safety cam-
paign, firefighters and safety
advocates will be spreading
the word about the dangers
of home fires and teaching
local residents how to plan
and practice escape from a
home in case a fire occurs.
According to the latest
NFPA research, 3,030 people
died in 2005 in home fires -

* Develop a fire escape
plan that identifies two ways
out of each room and a fami-
ly meeting place outside.
* Make sure your plan
allows for any specific needs
in your household. If every-
one knows what to do, every-
one can get out quickly.
* Practice using the plan,
at least twice a year.
* Some studies have
shown that some children
and adults may not awaken
to the sound of a smoke
alarm; they may need help
waking up.
* If the smoke alarm
sounds: Go to your closest
exit, and if you run into
smoke, turn and use another
way out. If you must exit
through smoke, get low and


go under the smoke to your
exit. Don't take time to pick
up belongings; just get out
and help others get out.
Move fast but stay calm.
