The Blountstown Main Street design committee has unveiled an artist's renderings of what downtown Blountstown could
look like with a few improvements. Main Street enlisted artist Jennifer Bonaventura of Panama City to create a portrait
of a charming historic district for shopping, dining, living and doing business. Main Street members hope to partner with
business owners, as well as City of Blountstown officials, on the next available Community Development Block Grant to
make this vision a reality. To get Involved with Main Street, call Angle at 674-9191 or Kelli at 899-0500. .

Calhoun-Liberty Hospital



welcomes administrator


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Officials at Calhoun-Liberty Hospital
made great strides this week in their
efforts to improve local healthcare as they
hired a permanent administrator for the
facility.
Tuesday was the first day on the job for
Ronald M. Gilliard of Claxton, Georgia,
who recently accepted the post.
"I think he just dropped out of Heaven
on us," says an ecstatic Laddie Williams,
Chairman of the Calhoun-Liberty Hospital
board. "He's got a real good track record."
Gilliard earned his MHA in Health
Administration from Georgia State
University back in 1971. Since retiring
from the U.S. Air Force in 1996, where he

awarded


federal


funding

Congressman Allen Boyd
(D-North Florida) announced
Monday that the Calhoun
Liberty Hospital Association
will receive a rural develop-
ment grant of $44,000 and a
loan of $50,400 from the
U.S. Department of
Agriculture (USDA). These
funds will be used to pur-
chase a replacement infor-
mation management system
that is critical for the opera-
tion of the Calhoun Liberty
Hospital.
"This funding is great
news for the people of
Calhoun and Liberty
Counties," said
Congressman Boyd. "Better
access to quality healthcare
in North Florida has been
the top priority of the
District Healthcare Council,
which I formed two years
ago, and there is no doubt
that this funding will greatly
benefit the Calhoun Liberty
Hospital and the patients it
serves."
The hospital will use the
information system to follow
the patient from admission
to discharge. The manage-
ment system contains vital
information about- the
patient and is an essential
part of safe and effective
healthcare.
"The Calhoun Liberty
Hospital Association
deserves a pat on the back
for all of their hard work and
their management of the
hospital during very difficult
times," Boyd stated. "Rural
hospitals are facing tremen-
dous challenges, and I will
continue working closely
with the community to
improve the accessibility of
quality healthcare in our
area." .
Calhoun and Liberty
Counties have been desig-
nated as a "Rural Area of
Critical Economic Concern"
by the state of Florida.
Communities receiving this
designation have greater
access and flexibility within
the Rural Community
Development Revolving Loan
and the Regional
Development Grant
Programs on the state level.
In addition, this designation
provides more opportunity
for federal funding to pro-
mote economic development
initiatives and local projects
in the area.

Medical staff sought


for summer camp


The Muscular Dystrophy
Association is searching for
summer camp medical staff,
including registered nurses,
physicians and/or -para-
medics, who are looking for a
rewarding and memorable
experience. Volunteer med-
ical staff is needed to help.
young people with neuro-
muscular diseases enjoy a
fun-filled MDA summer camp
from July 6 through July 13,
2007 at Cape San Blas, in
Port St. Joe, FL.
Medical staff must be
licensed within the state of
Florida and be able to lift and
care for a young person
between the ages of 6 and 21.
Medical staff will be required
to dispense daily medications
as well as assist in any emer-
gency situations.
"MDA summer camp is the
event that our kids think
about year-round," said MDA
Regional Coordinator Lisa
Heil. "For one week out of the
year, they get to be in an
environment where having a
neuromuscular disease is the
norm, not the exception.
They have the chance to
make friendships and memo-
ries that will last a lifetime."
Heil noted that medical
staff and volunteers often say
camp is a magical and mem-

S Snrinrfs


orable time. "It's such a fam-
ily environment and a time to
make friends for life," she
said. "It truly is, the best week
of the year!"
At no charge to families,
MDA's summer camp pro-
gram serves more than 4,000
campers nationwide in some
90 weeklong sessions. Last
year, over 4,700 volunteers
helped make this all possible.
To obtain a medical staff
application or learn about
other ways to support MDA's
summer camp program, call
the local MDA office in
Tallahassee, FL at (850) 681-
6763, or call (800) 572-1717.
More information about sum-
mer camp volunteers can be
found on the MDA summer
camp pages at
www.mdausa.org/clinics/ca
mp/index.cfm.
MDA is a voluntary health
agency working to defeat
more than 40 neuromuscular
diseases through programs of
worldwide research, compre-
hensive services, and far-
reaching professional and
public health education.
The Association's pro-
grams are funded almost
entirely by individual private
contributors.

Congressman Allen Boyd announces...



New VA clinic coming,




soon to Jackson County


WASHINGTON, D.C.-
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida), a member of
the Military Construction-
Veterans Affairs
Subcommittee of the House
Appropriations Committee,
today announced that the
Department of Veterans
Affairs (VA) plans to open a
new community-based out-
patient clinic (CBOC) in
Jackson County. The VA
aims to open the CBOC with-
in eight months. The new
clinic will enhance access to
VA healthcare for the 75,500
veterans in North Florida;
"This new clinic is an
extraordinary victory for our
veterans in North Florida and
a long time coming," said
Congressman Boyd.
'Veterans in Jackson County
and surrounding areas have
traveled too far, for too long,
to get the healthcare they
need and deserve, and the
new clinic will ensure that
North Florida's veterans have
more convenient access to
proper medical care."
Since 2004, Congressman
Boyd has been working with










The


"This new clinic is an extraor-

dinary victory for our veterans

in North Florida and

a long time coming."

-Congressman Boyd


the VA to move forward with
the plans for a CBOC in
Jackson County. Last year,
Congressman Boyd brought
former VA Under Secretary
for Health, Dr. Jonathan B.
Perlin, to Marianna so that
he could meet with local offi-
cials and talk about plans for
the CBOC in Jackson
County.
"I have been working for
some time now to demon-
strate to the VA the immedi-
ate need for a veterans' clinic
in Jackson County," Boyd
stated. "Our veterans need
healthcare services closer to


their homes, and this new
facility will do just that."
Currently, veterans in
Jackson County and sur-
rounding areas must travel
to Panama City, Tallahassee,
Lake City, Pensacola, or
Biloxi, Mississippi, for their
healthcare needs. The VA
anticipates that 3,574 exist-
ing patients and 310 new
patients will be treated at the
CBOC in Jackson County,
which was among 38 clinics
approved in 22 states by VA
Secretary James Nicholson.
'VA is committed to pro-
viding world-class healthcare


to the men and women who
have served this nation," VA
Secretary Jim Nicholson
said. "These new clinics will
bring VA's top-notch care
closer to the veterans who
have earned it."
The Jackson County
CBOC was included in the VA
Capital Asset Realignment for
Enhanced Services (CARES)
decision in 2004. The
CARES decision is a strategic
plan that is essential to pro-
vide quality, accessible
healthcare to our veterans.
The CARES decision
addressees the changing
demographics and the aging
infrastructure that plagues
the VA healthcare system.
Once complete, it will allow
the VA to provide essential
healthcare for veterans now
and for those in the future.

Officials monitor

red palm mite
TALIAHASSEE -- Florida
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson said his
department is closely moni-
toring the migration of the
red palm mite (Raoiella indica
Hirst). Though it has not
arrived in Florida, agriculture
officials fear it is only a mat-
ter of time before it does.
"Arrival of the red palm
mite in Florida could threat-
en Florida's vibrant orna-
mental palm industry,"
Bronson said. "The depart-
ment is aggressively survey-
ing for this dangerous plant
pest, and we are participating
in joint programs with other
agricultural organizations to
delay its entry into the state
and to develop control meas-
ures in the likely event of its
appearance in our'country."
The red palm mite quickly
spread ever closer to the U.S.
mainland after it was identi-
fied in the Western
Hemisphere three years ago
on the Caribbean island of
Martinique. The mite is now
in St. Lucia, Dominica,
Grenada, Guadeloupe,
Martinique, St. Martin, the
Dominican Republic,
Trinidad, Puerto Rico, and
the U.S. Virgin Islands.
According to the U.S.
Department of Agriculture,
the invasion represents the
biggest mite explosion ever
observed in the Americas.
The red palm mite causes
serious leaf damage, which
ruins the ornamental value of
palms, and some growers
anticipate as much as a 50
percent loss in coconut pro-
duction. Scientists observed
that the mite has spread in
the Caribbean to infest other
exotic and ornamental
plants, including banana and


heliconia species. Equally
worrisome is the mite's abili-
ty to disperse with the wind,
which in Florida means that
hurricane season may bring
with it more than devastating
weather.
In Florida, members of the
Cooperative Agricultural Pest
Survey Program (CAPS) -- a
combined effort by state and
federal agricultural agencies
to conduct surveillance,
detection, and monitoring of
exotic plant pests -- has been
on the lookout for potential
invasions of the mite since
late 2006.
An intensive outreach, pro-
gram is under way involving
the distribution of flyers and
educational materials to
county extension agents,
growers, nursery owners, and
landscapers. Outreach to
cruise ship tourists is also
being conducted because
they often return to Florida
with woven palm handicraft
souvenirs.
Surveys for potential palm
infestations have been con-
ducted in coastal areas of
Miami-Dade, Hillsborough,
Sarasota, Manatee, Pinellas,
Broward, Monroe (Florida
Keys) and Lee counties. In
May, 'another .survey of
coastal areas neai ports, as
well as nursery environs was
completed. No evidence of red
palm mite infestations was
found.
Ongoing activities include
additional surveys and inten-
sifying outreach and educa-
tional programs to county
extension agents, importers,
landscapers, plant nurseries
and the public.
If you need further infor-
mation on the red palm mite,
contact Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer
Services entomologist Dr. Cal
Welbourn at mailto:wel-
bouc@doacs.state.fl.us or
visit http://www.doacs.
state.fl.us/pi/enpp/ento/red
_palm_mite.html. After
reviewing the pest alert, if
you think you have seen a
red palm mite, contact the
department's helpline at 1-
888-397-1517.

GRAND JUNCTION, CO-
The Chipola Indians cap-
tured the school's first
national championship in
baseball Saturday with a 7-3
win over New Mexico Junior
College in the NJCAA
National Championship.
Winning pitcher Ryan
Chaffee pitched a complete
game and was named
Outstanding Pitcher of the
tournament. He struck out
eight and gave up only five
hits against the New Mexico
squad that was averaging
nearly 10 runs a game in the
tourney. Chaffee humbly
admitted, "It was probably
my best game and the biggest
game of my life."
Logan Pierce started
Chipola's offensive strike
with a double in the first. He
was three for five on the day.
Paul Gatchel was three for
four on the night. Tom
Hatcher was three for five.
Trey Manz homered in the
fourth. Chipola scored one in
the first, two in the fourth,
two in the seventh and single
runs in the sixth and eighth
innings.
Indians pitcher Drew
Parker earned MVP honors
for the tournament with two
wins and two saves. Chipola
coach Jeff Johnson gave all
the credit to his players.
"We've got some great kids
with some big old hearts," he
said. "They're not worried
about the draft or where
they're going to play next


year. They just worried about
playing for Chipola." Tom
Hatcher, Ryan Chaffee and
Drew Parker were. named to.
the All-Tournament Team.
The Indians won four of
five games on their way to the
national title. Chipola is the
first Florida team to win the
national tournament since
1988 when Hillsborough
Community College captured
the title. Coach Johnson, an
11-year veteran of the
Chipola program said, "It's
tough to get here to the
national tournament so you
have to take advantage of the
opportunity and that's just
what our kids did."

Martin Truex Jr.
Born: June 29, 1980
Sponsor: Bass Pro Shops
BL K 7 Crew Chief: Kevin Manion
Car: Chevrolet
Biography:
In 2003, Martin Truex Jr. began the season with
his father's team, before he was hired by Dale
Earnhardt, Jr. to drive his #81 Chance 2
Motorsports Chevy. He ran a total of ten races
that season. Truex raced full time for Dale Jr. in
2004. At Bristol Motor Speedway, he would earn
his first career victory, and he would later add 3
more victories over the next 7 races. Truex
clinched the 2004 Busch Series championship
with a race to spare. That year, Truex made an
appearance in the Nextel Cup as a relief driver to
Dale Jr., who'd suffered burns in a sports car acci-
dent. Truex stayed in the Busch Series to defend
his championship in 2005, winning the title for the
second season in a row. He won the first
NASCAR race held in Mexico, as well as defend-
ing his Busch wins at Talladega and Dover
International Speedway. Truex ran full-time in the
2006 NEXTEL Cup season in the #1 Bass Pro
Shops Chevro let for Dale Eararrdt, Inc. He fin-
ished in the top 10 five times and finished the
2006 season 19th in points,


NASCAR is considering opening up its restrictive car testing '"
policy, which several teams already have skirted this season. "'
Currently, rules limit teams to seven tests on Nextel Cup-
sanctioned tracks, and crew chiefs help NASCAR decide the -
venues and dates. NASCAR adopted that policy two years
ago to help underfunded teams keep up with big-budget
organizations, who could afford to test anytime. But as the Car of Tomorrow was rolled
into competition, the top teams found ways to test it outside of the rules. NASCAR
most likely will relax the restrictions, because it's having a hard time policing teams.


Martin Truex Jr won the 400-mile race at Dover
International Speedway on Monday. It was the first time
Truex won in 58 career points races. He ended a dominant
five-race winning streak for Hendrick Motorsports. After the
race Truex said, "It feels good to hush up all that and solidi-
fy the fact that we are here for real. We are going to win
races and contend for championships in the future." Pole-
sitter Ryan Newman, who led most of the first half of the
race, was denied his first win fine 2005, fishing second.
Cart Edwards, who won the Busch Series race Saturday,
finished third. Dale-Eamhardt, who had a second-place
qualifying.effort, finished 22nd due to tire problems.

Ms. Martha Peterson
appeared before the Board of
Commissioners requesting a
waiver of the 2' above base
Flood Elevation (BFE) require-
ment per Flood Ordinance 94-
01. This Ordinance requires
that any structure in the 100
year flood plain must have a
finished floor no less that 2'
above BFE preventing a struc-
ture from being flooded in a
100 year flood event. The
National Flood Insurance
Program (NFIP) requires a
minimum of 1' above BFE;
however, Calhoun County
requires through Ordinance
94-01 a minimum of 2'. The
Board of Commissioners has
authority to approve a vari-
ance of 1' but cannot grant a
waiver of 2' because 1' is a
requirement of NFIP. The
Board in the past has denied
all variances on flood eleva-
tions and it was recommended
by Mr. O'Bryan to deny this
request. After discussion, the
Board agreed by -consensus
not to approve the request for
a waiver.

cussed with the Board issues
at Sam Atkins Park.

that due to the various
requests for use of park prop-
erty over the past several
months (the RV Park, the
Animal Shelter, and the Nextel
Phone Tower) and due to the
fact that he and other Board
members are committed to
protecting the public parks in
our County from being used in
unintended ways and because
we would like to resolve issues
concerning use of park prop-
erties without going through
needless controversy over and
over again, he made the fol-
lowing motion to become a
