The community was
shocked and saddened to learn
of the death of Blountstown
Mayor Marsha Harpool, 52,
who was discovered dead in
her Orange Street home Friday
night.
An autopsy report revealed
Monday she died from conges-
tive heart failure. Sources say
Harpool had kidney problems
and had recently missed a City
Council meeting due to illness.
According to the


THE HONORABLE MARSHA HARPOOL
Blountstown Police
Department, Harpool's son,


Adam, who is away at college
in Gainesville, contacted local
authorities around 9 p.m.
requesting a welfare check on
his mother. Adam advised he
had not spoken with her for
about 24 hours.
Ofc. John Mallory was
immediately dispatched to
Harpool's residence. After
knocking on the door several
times and calling her phone,
but receiving no response, a
family member arrived to
assist in gaining access to the
home. Harpool was discovered
in her bedroom unresponsive.


An EMS crew responded to
the residence, but they were
unable to rescusitate Harpool.
Harpool made history in
2006 when she became the
first female and first African
American to be elected mayor
in Blountstown.
"I always wanted to make
history!" she told The County
Record with a laugh after being
elected, adding, "But I'm here
to do for everybody. I intend to
provide leadership to the City
Council that holds the Council
and city staff accountable to
City residents. Blountstown

People,

Natural gas supplies vitally needed to
thousands of homes, businesses, and industries
in Florida. Energy, whether it be in the form of
gas, electricity, oil, water, etc., when uncontrolled
can be dangerous.

Even though a record of safe operations has
been established over the years by the regulated
gas industry, knowledge of the information
contained in this ad can assist you in recognizing
a potentially hazardous condition and take
appropriate action to safeguard life and property.

Q WHAT ARE SOME OF THE
CHARACTERISTICS OF NATURAL GAS A
USER SHOULD KNOW?
A. Natural Gas is a mixture of hydrocarbons
composed mainly of methane and exhibits the
following characteristics:
1. Odorless an odor is added to this gas.
2. It is lighter than air and if released will rise
into the atmosphere unless trapped.
3. It is nontoxic. However, as with any burning
process, incomplete, combustion will form carbon
monoxide which is toxic.
4. It is colorless.
5. It has a flammability range of from 4% to
14% (approximate values by volume of gas to
air).

Q. IS NATURAL GAS DANGEROUS?
A. Gas, like all forms of energy, is capable of
doing damage and must be used properly.
However, the experience with natural gas use
shows it to be more safe than other energy
sources which you use in your home or business.
Possible hazards include fire, explosior4, and
disruption of normal activities.

Q. WHAT SHOULD YOU KNOW ABOUT
GAS ODOR?
A. 1. Natural gas does not normally have an
odor.
2. A substance is added by your gas company
to give natural gas a "rotten-egg.smell should it
escape.


Natural Gas &


3. Become familiar with the smell. Should you
detect this odor, it doesn't positively tell you that
there is a gas leak; but this is sufficient reason for
you to call your gas company and have them
investigate.

Q: WHAT ADDITIONAL WAYS CAN YOU
DETECT A GAS LEAK?
A. 1. When the ground is wet, you may detect
a leak by seeing bubbles rising through puddles
of water in a uniform manner.
2. A larger leak of gas from underground
piping may be able to be seen by sand blowing
around a small hole in the ground; it may be felt
just as you may feel air leaking.
3. A flame at or around appliance piping other
than at the burner indicate leakage.

Q. THE FACT THAT A "ROTTEN-EGG"
ODOR IS DETECTED, DOES THAT MEAN
THAT THERE IS A NATURAL GAS LEAK?
A. No, but this should be checked to assure
that the odor isn't an indication of a gas leak. Call
your gas company and report it. Odors similar to
that of natural gas may come from the following:
1. A sewer system.
2. A water aeration play which has a sulphur.
content.
3. Swamps or bogs.
4. Areas where the land has been filled,. etc.

Q. IF THERE IS A GAS LEAK WILL YOU
ALWAYS SMELL AN ODOR?
A. No. If gas leaks from an above ground
pipe, there should always ben an odor. However,
when gas travels through the ground, such as a
leak from an underground service line or main,
the ground acts as a filter and can remove the
odor from the gas.
Q. WHY ISN'T A GAS ODOR SMELLED
WHEN THE GAS IS BURNED ON A GAS
RANGE OR FURNACE?
A. The material used to odorize the gas is
flammable and is consumed in the process of
burning. If your equipment is properly adjusted


you should not detect the odor when you are
using your appliances.

Q. WHAT CAN ONE DO TO REDUCE
THE POSSIBILITY OF AN ACCIDENT?
A. First keep the emergency telephone
number of your gas company handy. A good
place to keep this number is to write it down in
the front of your telephone book along with other
emergency telephone numbers such as fire,
police, etc.
Other things which should be done to improve
safety, as well as conserve energy, are:
1. Teach children that they are not to play with
any appliances in the home.
2. Clean the burners and have them checked
for proper adjustments periodically.
3. Repairs, installations, and removal of
appliances are jobs for qualified persons. Use
only qualified people to do this work.
4. If lighting of an appliance is required,
ALWAYS light match and hold at ignitition
point of burner before you turn on the gas.
5. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for
operation and care of gas appliances.
6. Never take a chance. If you think you
smell gas, call your gas company.

Q. WHAT SHOULD BE DONE WHEN
ONE BELIEVE HE SMELL'S GAS?
A. If a slight odor is detected in a localized
area or room of a building DO NOT use a
match or other flame in the area; call the gas
company immediately.
2. If a strong odor of gas is detected in a
building or other confined space DO NOT
operate electric switches, light matches, or use
an open flame; however, DO open windows
and doors to ventilate the area (caution: don't
turn on the exhaust fans). Leave the building,
and call the gas company.
3. IF A STRONG ODOR IS DETECTED IN
A BUILDING AND/OR A HISSING SOUND IS
HEARD -DO NOT operate electrical switches,


Safety

lights, or other devices; DO evacuee the
building, leaving exit doors on your way out,
warn persons to say clear of the building land
call the fire department and gas company
immediately from another location.
4. If the odor of gas is detected outside ( in
the yard, ar the sidewalk, etc.) immediately
call the gas company.

SAFETY IS YOUR BUSINESS. Educate
your family and friends about the precautions
to take when they believe they smell the odor
of gas.

CAUTION: The term "GAS" is used by the
news media and others to include a variety of
products such as liquefied petroleum gases
(propane, butane) gasoline and natural gas.
Each product has its own characteristics which
differ from one another, thus the information
given in this advertisement is applicable only
to NATURAL GAS.


NEVER POSTPONE
GAS COMPANY WHEN
THAT YOU SMELL GAS.

"Faith is believing that one
of two things will happen -- that
there will be something solid for
you to stand on -- or -- that you
will be taught to fly."
Alice Williford, just shy of 98
years, has, as T.V.'s Tavis
Smiley says nightly -- been able
to "Keep the Faith" all this
time. This truly spirited and
remarkable lady has met life's
many challenges with courage,
dignity, and grace. Always a
hard-working woman, Alice has
made it a practice to give more
than her share in anything she
does, treat others with respect
and dignity, meet all she
encounters in an up front and
honest manner. She is neither a
complainer nor a whiner, and it
is simply not her style to feel
sorry for herself, though she
shows compassion and deep
care for others. When adversi-
ty has come, Alice has spent
many an hour with her bible,
seeking solace and understand-
ing for what seems to have no fit
answer.
Alice is a lover of nature and
the out-of-doors, would rather
tend to her flowers or, with hat
protecting her from the sun,
ride her "Snapper" to cut the
front law. She still works her
crossword puzzles in a kitchen
smelling of fresh bread, yeast
rolls, pie and cake, will read
until one in the morning if not
chided about it.
Friends and neighbors con-
tinue to marvel at this women's
endurance and longevity. Time
and tite again, they remark
about .her being their, "Role
Mode someone they look up
to and really admire, example
of what we all can strive for in
our own lives.
In spite of hip surgery six
months ago, Alice continues to
be physically active. She con-
tinues to drive and participate
in her various activities. Even
though it is true that she has not
gone around the world in eighty
days, nor at all, for that matter
-- her life in Blountstown is rich,
of value, sprinkled with much
care and love. Held in high
regard is her Eastern Star,

Wishing You 0A Bessedqfew Year
Dr. & Mrs. Barry Edewaard & Staff

A New Year's Prayer
The year is gone, beyond recall,
with all its hopes and fears,
with all its bright and gladdening smiles,
with all its mourners' tears.
Thy thankful people praise thee, Lord,
for countless gifts received;
and pray for grace to keep the faith
which saints of old believed.
To thee we come, 0 gracious Lord,
the newborn year to bless;
defend our land from pestilence,
give peace and plenteousness.
Forgive this nation's many sins,
the growth of vice restrain;
and help up all with sin to strive,
and crowns of life to gain.
From evil deeds that stain the past
we now desire to flee;
and pray that future years may all
be spent, good Lord, for thee.
0 Father, let thy watchful eye
still look on us in love,
that we may praise thee, year by year
with angel hosts above.
All glory to the Father be,
all glory to the Son,
All glory, Holy Ghost, to thee
while endless ages run..

Teacher of the Year cont'd-


- some she's teaching at the
time, others she's taught in the
past. They seem to flock to her.
"I would have to say that my
personal accomplishment as a
teacher has been in knowing
that I did everything in my
power to let my students know
that I cared and believed in
them," she says. "It is knowing
that I did my very best to teach
each child and to have had the
opportunity to help each one of
them become successful stu-
dents. The most rewarding
thing about being a teacher is
when I am told by former stu-
dents, that I made a difference
in their lives."
Peacock has made an art out
of convincing youngsters that
learning can be fun. "I am
always looking for creative and
innovative ways to help my stu-
dents learn," she explains. "I
get excited about teaching and
it spills over to my students.
When I teach my lessons I look
for ways to help the students
retain the information, whether
it be making up silly dances,
rhymes, or songs. I know that
students love to sing and dance.
I have taught many concepts in
science and social studies using
this strategy. The students love
learning this way and are
retaining the concepts they
learn. I use a lot of hands on
activities in my lessons. My stu-
dents get so excited when they
do science experiments. I am
also a strong believer in the use
of technology in the classroom.
My students and I use comput-
ers, the internet, and the smart
board."
But probably the most
important aspect of her teach-
ing style is showing the kids in
her class just how capable they
really are. "I let my students
know that I believe they are
intelligent and that they will be
successful in my classroom. I
will not allow them to fail or
give up," she stresses. I set
high standards for my students.
I expect all of my students to
always do their very best, excel
in all they do, and then try
harder. I encourage my stu-
dents and they know that I
believe that they can accom-


plish anything they set out in.
life to do."
With all the good she is able
to do, one of the most troubling
aspects of her job is not being
able to help one of her students.
"It is very frustrating as a
teacher when I know that a stu-
dent is having difficulties' in
their lives, whether. it be
divorce, losing a loved one, drug
abuse in the home or being left
by a parent, etc. and knowing
that there is nothing I can do to
help them," says Peacock. "I
spend many nights laying
awake worrying about my stu-
dents. The only thing I know to
do is to be there for them at
school and to continue to pray
for them and their families."
Despite those sad occasions,
Peacock wouldn't trade careers
for anything. "I would encour-
age anyone who loves all chil-
dren and has a lot of patience to
become a teacher," she states.
"It is the most rewarding and
also the most heartbreaking job
they could ever have. The best
advice I could give to a new
teacher would be to take the
time to get to know his/her stu-
dents before ever trying to
teach them. When students
know that a teacher truly cares
about them, they will do every-
thing in their power to please
that teacher. My favorite quote
is: People don't care how much
you know until they know how
much you care."
Another person who knows
what it means to care for multi-
tudes of students is Rose Mary
Swilley. For the past 11 years,
Swilley has been part of the
BES family. "I started as a
teacher's aide, then I became
the health aide, followed by my
current position as secretary,"
she says. "I enjoy every aspect
of my job, from taking care of
the students to taking care of
the staff and making sure that
everything runs as smooth as
possible."
And "taking care of" folks is
something Swilley is known for
at BES. Principal Vicki Davis
told the crowd at the awards
ceremony Swilley knows every
child by name and does every-
thing from taking faculty mem-


bers' blood pressure to mending
clothes.
"Along with doing my nor-
mal secretarial duties I am also
part-time seamstress, part-time
nurse, taxi service for those who
miss the bus, I have taught class
while a teacher has to step out,
I pull teeth if the need arises, I
have even had a child come up
,to me as if to hug me and then
blow in my face and ask me if
her breath smelled bad,"
Swilley remarks.

But it's all part of a day's
work she truly enjoys. "I have
never worked in a more pleas-
ant work environment," she
says. "I've always heard that
excellence reflects leadership
and we are definitely led well
by Vicki and Debbie here at
BES."

Tigers to take on



Malone at home


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor


The Blountstown Tigers are
,off to a 2-3 start on the dia-
mond, defeating West Gadsden
and R.F Munroe, while losing
to Graceville, Wewa and
Jefferson County.
Before the season was offi-
cially underway, the bats were
in motion across the river when
BHS participated in a tourna-
ment in- Liberty County Feb. 7-
8. "We split the Pre-season
Classic," Coach Jeff Gillespie
reports. "We defeated John
Paul Catholic High School my
old school then we lost to
Liberty."
The regular season began
Monday, Feb. 11, when the
Tigers traveled to West
Gadsden and brought home an
11-4 win. Two days later, they
hosted Graceville and took a
17-5 loss. A road trip to Wewa
also ended with a 5-2 defeat.
The tables were turned on Feb.
18 at R.F. Munroe when the
Tigers captured an impressive
8-1 win. The final game of the
week Saturday was a close one


with Jefferson Couiity edgng
The leading hitter for the
Tigers is senior Dillon Burke at
.583. Other offensive leaders
include seniors Jared Lilly
(.444), Ricky Mercer (.333),
and Mike Kelley (.357). Senior
Matt Vincent has two home-

"We're coming around the
potential is there to do well,"
Coach Gillespie remarks. "We
just have to execute and take
advantage of our opportuni-
ties."
The Tigers were scheduled
to host Franklin County
Tuesday night (details unavail-
able at press time). They will
be on the road to Cottondale
Thursday for the first district
game of the season, then back
home Friday to take on Malone

TAD SCOTT is #2 in win-

He stands at 1.000 with a 3-0
record. Tad has thrown 2
shutouts and he has a com-
plete game under his belt.
The Wildcats' winning per-
centage is 1.000 and that is
good enough for a #3 ranking!
Altha is only 1 of 2 teams
in the nation now standing
with a 5-0 record!!!


BY JIM McINTOSH

ALTHA, FEBRUARY 18-
"Don't know much about histo-
ry..." so a line from a 1950s'
tune goes.
It's uncertain how much his-
tory the Wildcats KNOW but
they sure know how to MAKE
history. In fact, twice in one
week.
Last week they became the
first Altha varsity baseball team
to beat a 4-A team in the regu-
lar season- and they walked off
the diamond last Saturday
night sporting a perfect 5-0 sea-
son record.
It took the Wildcats (5-0; 0-
0, 2-2A) only 1:55 minutes last
Monday night to 10-run the
East Gadsden Jaguars, 13-3, in
five innings.
Although the Jaguars (1-2;
0-0, 2-4A) touched up Altha's
Cale Chafin (1-0) for a run in
the first inning and two more in
the third, Chafin finally settled
in and carved up East Gadsden.
"Cale pitched a great game,"
said Altha head coach Arthur
Faurot.
After he surrendered those 3
earned runs, Chafin settled in,
got his off-speed pitch working
and the Jaguars were history.
Of his 83 pitches Cale gave up 6
hits, issued a walk, and struck
out 9 batters.
Altha tied the game at 1-1 in
the second inning. With two
outs, Cale helped himself out
with his bat and speed. He
reached first base on a short-
stop's error, stole second, and
scored on Gary Chew's single
down the first base line.
In the third inning the rest of
the Wildcats' offense got dialed
in. Leadoff batter Keith
Kirkpatrick swung on the third

strike but reached first base on
the catcher's error. Kirkpatrick
stole second base and advanced
to third after Josh McIntosh
singled back through the box.
McIntosh made his way to sec-
ond on a fielder's choice. Tad
Scott brought both runners
home after he singled back up
the middle.
Josh Warner was issued a
walk to begin the fourth inning
and he moved to second base on
a wild pitch. Juan Alejos drew
a walk and both runners moved
up a base on a wild pitch. Keith
Kirkpatrick's walk loaded the
bases. A sacrifice fly to center-
field by Josh McIntosh scored
Warner. Alejos stole third base
and Kirkpatrick made it to sec-
ond on the fielder's choice. The
sacks were full of Wildcats
again after Tad Scott walked.
Noah Byler was credited with a
RBI after his walk scored
Alejos. Ethan Byler's sacrifice
fly to centerfield plated
Kirkpatrick and it gave Altha a
7-3 lead.
The Wildcats picked up in
the fifth inning where they left
off in the fourth-scoring 6
more runs. Tony Golden got it
started with a single to right
centerfield. Altha had runners
at first and second after Jake
Edenfield ripped his first double
of the season to right field.
Keith Kirkpatrick scored
Golden on his sacrifice fly to
centerfield. Josh McIntosh's
single to left centerfield put
Wildcats on the corners.
McIntosh reached second on
the catcher's indifference. Tad
Scott plated Edenfield on his
single back up the middle and
Scott made his way to second,
courtesy of a fielder's choice.
Once again the bases were


juiced after Noah Byler walked.
McIntosh and Scott crossed
home plate after Ethan Byler
singled to left field. Cale Chafin
laid down a perfect bunt just
inside the chalk line for a base
hit. Again, the bases were
loaded and Gary Chew's walk
allowed Noah to touch home
plate. The game ended when
Edenfield drew a two-out walk
that scored Ethan and gave
Altha their 13-3 victory.
The Wildcats produced
those 13 runs on. 10 hits that
resulted in 12 .RBIs (RBI).
They were issued 9 walks and
struck out only 9 times.
"They had some good ath-
letes," observed Coach Faurot.
(Indeed, East Gadsden's cen-
terfielder Charles 'Thazon right-
ly fit the mold of a Jaguar. He
ranged from left centerfield to
right centerfield hauling in 7 fly
balls.) "However, East
Gadsden doesn't put a lot of
emphasis on baseball and
because of that their pitching is
suffering."
Altha's offensive leader was
Tad Scott who had 2 hits in his
3 at bats and he scored twice.
Also, Tad had 2 RBIs and a
stolen base. Josh McIntosh had
a 2 for 3 night, touched home
plate twice and was credited
with a RBI. Cale Chafin helped
himself with a- 2 for 3 perform-
ance. He scored a run and stole
2 bases. Tony Golden singled in
his two at bats and he crossed
home plate once. Jake
Edenfield doubled in his only at
bat and he was credited with a
RBI along with a stolen base.
Gary Chew was 1 for 3 with 2
RBIs and 2 stolen bases. Going
1 for 4, racking up 3 RBIs and

on an error by the second base-
man and Ethan scored on the
error. Chew stole second base
and Tony Golden's single through
the left side brought Chew home.
The Wildcats added 3 more
runs to their side of the ledger in
the third frame. Tad Scott drew a
one-out walk. A catcher's error
found Scott standing on second
base. Noah Byler ripped a grass-
:burner through the left side to
plate Scott. Ethan Byler ham-
mered a double to right center-
field to score his brother, Noah.
With two outs Gary Chew singled
through the right side. Notching
his third RBI of the afternoon,
Tony Golden slammed a double
to centerfield that scored Ethan
and Chew.
In the fourth inning Tad Scott
had a two-out single back up the
middle. Then Noah Byler
stepped to the plate and jacked a
two-run homer over the left field
fence. That gave the Wildcats an
8-1 lead.
Altha's final two runs came in
the sixth inning. Josh McIntosh
led by cranking his second double
of the season to right field. Tad
Scott singled through the right
side. Ethan Byler's single down
the third base line allowed
McIntosh to touch the dish. Cale
Chafin drew a walk to load the
bases and Gary Chew's infield
single scored Scott.
Altha pounded out 10 runs on
12 hits, posted 8 RBI, 'and
walked 3 times.
"Aucilla is down a little this
year," remarked Altha's coach,
Arthur Faurot. "Coach Ray
Hughes (in his 31st year at
Aucilla) lost some of his senior
leadership last year and he's
rebuilding this season."
The Wildcats posted 10 runs
on 12 hits, picked up 8 RBIs and
walked 3 times. "Both of
our pitchers (Tad Scott and Keith
Kirkpatrick) located the ball
well," said Faurot. "They gave us
quality innings, kept.their pitch
counts low, and did 'an outstand-
ing job."
Scott picked up his second win
of the season in 4 innings of work.
With 57 pitches he struck out 10
batters and allowed only a walk.
Kirkpatrick came on in the fifth
inning, threw 40 pitches, fanned
4 batters, gave up -a hit and a
walk.
Altha's offensive leader was
Tony Golden who went 2 for 2
with 3 RBIs and he stole a base.
Ethan Byler had a 3-for-4-after-
noon (including a double), scored
twice, and was credited with 2
RBIs. Tad Scott was 2 for 3 and
scored 3 runs. Noah Byler had a
2-for-4 performance. Noah
scored 2 runs, jacked his first
homerun of the season, and had 3
RBIs. Gary scored twice and he
stole a base. Josh McIntosh dou-
bled in. his 4 at bats and scored
once.
WEWAHITCHKA, FEBRU-
ARY 23-The Wildcats had to
wait 1:40 minutes to play the
Gators.
"A Day of Baseball" almost
turned into "A Night of Baseball."
But Altha didn't mind. Besides
what better could you find to do


on a Saturday night than to
stomp the Gators on their home
turf, 12-0.
After the five-inning, 2:24
minute affair, this pack of
Wildcats (5-0; 0-0, 2-2A), who
had never beaten the Gators, had
finally gotten the proverbial mon-
key (that is, gator) off their backs
by taking down Wewa (1-2; 0-0,
3-2A).
And they did it in high fashion
with two homeruns, stellar pitch-
ing, and great defense. After the
game Coach Faurot reflected on
the night, "Our three pitchers
(Cale Chafin, Tad Scott, and
Keith Kirkpatrick) did a great job
and we were more disciplined
than they were in every aspect of
the game."
That comment was most glar-
ingly evident at the plate. The
Wildcats drew 14 walks and
induced the Gators' starting
pitcher to throw 99 pitches in the
first three innings.
Jake Edenfield began the scor-
ing frenzy in the first inning.
With one out he drew a walk and
later scored on Ethan Byler's
RBI walk.
Tony Golden led off the second
inning with a base hit to center-
field. Both Josh McIntosh and
Tad Scott were issued walks with
one out. On a 2-0 pitch count,
Noah Byler turned on a pitch and
lasered a two-out grand slam over
the left field fence. That put the
Wildcats on top, 5-0.
Wewa's, only scoring threat
came in their half of the third
frame. The first batter reached
on a fielder's choice and the next
two batters were walked. With
two 'outs and the bases loaded
and a full count on the Gators'
lead-off batter, Wildcats hurler,
Cale Chafin, struck out Josh
Mitchell looking at strike three.
Altha continued the bases
merry-go-round with a three-run
third inning. Ethan Byler
reached on the 'first baseman's
error but was forced out at second
on Cale
Chafin's fielder's choice. Then
Chafin stole second base. Tony
Golden's double to left centerfield
scored Chafin. Josh McIntosh
was issued a two-out walk. Jake
Edenfield poked a Texas-leaguer
to right field that scored Golden
and moved McIntosh to second
base. Both runners moved up a
base when the catcher's tried to
pick off McIntosh at second and
his throw went into centerfield.
Tad' Scott walked to first as did
Noah Byler to load the bases.
Noah picked up his fifth RBI of
the game when he scored
McIntosh.
In the fourth inning the
Wildcats posted 4 more runs.
Ethan Byler led off with a single
through the left side of the infield.
With two outs Gary Chew
cranked a homerun to left center-
field that plated Ethan.
McIntosh, Juan Alejos, and Scott
all walked. Noah Byler's sixth
RBI came .after he walked and
scored McIntosh. Also, Keith
Kirkpatrick drew a walk that
allowed Alejos to cross home
plate and give the Wildcats their
12-0 shutout and an unblemished
5-0 record.
Altha's offensive leader for the"
second straight game was Tony
Golden who had the hat trick--2
hits (including a double) on 2 at
bats and he scored 2 runs. Also,
Golden chalked up a RBI and he
stole a base. Jake Edenfield had
a single in his only at bat as well
as a RBI. Noah Byler had his
first "granny" of the season is his
2 at bats and he rang up 6 RBIs.
Ethan Byler went 1 for 3, scored
a run and had a RBI. Gary Chew
launched his first jack of the sea-
son and came away with 2 RBIs.
The varsity Wildcats will put
their 5-0 mark on the line tomor-
row (Thursday) t at "The Cotton


Patch" in a 5:00 p.m. (CT) game
against Brookwood Christian
School Warriors from
Thomasville, GA. (This game
was rescheduled because of the
inclement weather yesterday
[Tuesday]). This Friday they'll
play the Warriors in Thomasville
and the first pitch is scheduled for
6:00 p.m. (CT). Then on
Saturday Altha will take I-10
West over to Ponce de Leon for a
1:00 p.m. (CT) ballgame. This
Tuesday the Wildcats will host
their first district game of the sea-
son at 6:00 p.m. against the
Cottondale Hornets. A
GREAT JOB, GUYS!!!
KEEP IT GOING, WILD-
CATS!!!


Heavy rains last week
impacted the Lady Tiger soft-
ball team in more ways than
one.
In addition to their
Thursday game against Malone
being rained out, a soggy field
wasn't much help when they
when up against Dothan and
Enterprise in the Northview
Invitational Saturday.
The Lady Tigers were
shutout in both games, losing 6-
0 to Northview and 9-0 to
Enterprise. "Those are both 6A
schools," Coach Bubba Johnson
points out. "We just didn't hit
the ball and made a few costly
errors. We made some good
plays, but we had four outfield
errors. It was real soggy. Molly
Fagen, Ashley Whitfield,
Cherie Hires made some good
plays."
Kaitlin Peacock was on the
mound for the Tigers and got
both losses. Brittany Griffin
also pitched for BHS.
The Lady Tigers celebrated
a 9-4 victory over Franklin

Baseball team

selling Boston

butts Saturday
The Blountstown High
School Baseball Team will be
selling- Boston Butts for $20.
Pick-ups will be from 9 a.m. -
noon on Saturday, March 1, at
the red light located at Hwy. 71
and 20. Chefs will be Police
Chief Glenn Kimbrel and
Major Rodney Smith. To pre-
order, please call Marilyn
Vincent at 674-5724.


County Feb. 12. "We played
half of it in the rain," Coach
Johnson remarks. "We got 13
hits and allowed only two."
Peacock was the winning pitch-
er.
Offensively, Brittany Griffin
had three hits for the Tigers, a
double, two singles, and four
RBIs. Fagen had a triple and
single, scoring four runs. Hires
had a triple and single, driving
in two runs.
"Hopefully, we're going to
get better as the season moves
on," says Coach Johnson. "We
had seven who playedd basket-
ball so they had only one day
with us before we played
Franklin County. It's just going
to depend on how well the

pitching does and how well we
hit the ball. We finished 16-11
and won district last year for
the first time in 21 years. We
beat some teams last year they
hadn't beaten in several years.
But our district is much
tougher, mainly because
Cottondale and Bozeman have
been added, making it a five
team district."
The Lady Tigers were
scheduled to travel to Bozeman
on Tuesday (details available in
next week's edition). They will
be in Wildcat country Thursday
for a district game with Altha at
6 p.m. The first home game of
the season is set for Friday
against East Gadsden at 4:30
p.m.

Altha students raise $1738


through "Pennies for Patients"


Pennies for Patients
By: Cayla Coxwell
Students at Altha School
recently raised funds for the
Pennies for Patients program to
benefit the Leukemia and
Lymphoma Society. After three
weeks of students bringing their
spare change to school, the total
amount raised was $1,738.58!
We would like to say a special
thanks to the students, faculty,
and parents.
The top fundraising class
was second grade. They raised
$451.97! As a reward they will
be treated to a catered lunch-
eon by the Society. "I am so
proud of our students," said
Principal Ronnie Hand. "They
did a great job of giving selfless-
ly and they really understand
the mission of the Society and
what the money is used for."
Leukemia is the number one
fatal cancer among children and
young adults under the age of
twenty. An estimated 747,465


Americans have blood cancers,
and every five minutes, some-
one new is diagnosed. Since
1992, more than $100 million
dollars have been raised in pen-
nies and other spare change by
elementary, middle and high
school students across the coun-
try. The mission of the
Leukemia and Lymphoma
Society is to cure leukemia,
lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease
and myeloma, and to improve
the quality of life of patients
and their families.
"These students serve as an
example to all of us through
their commitment to helping
others," said Jennifer Symmes,
Campaign Manager for the
Northern Florida Chapter
For information regarding
local programs and services of

Society, you can call (904)332-

2 01ougt to

Remember
S Here's an
interesting
thought which
we might do well
to ponder.
When an
Tim Adams engineer plans a
ane a -toW building he does
not, provide
merely for
normal stresses. He multiplies his
estimates of probable strain by.
three, six or even twenty, to make
the structure safe no matter what
happens.
The reserves are important! Our
reserves as humans are always
amazing. Whether it is spiritual,
or physical strength, we were all
made to meet and master strains.
We are designed to face life, and.
any situation life creates,
undismayed.
When we see sorrow or some
other great crises facing us-it is
well for us to remember that God
designed us, and He will never
put more on us than we can bear.
OUR THOUGHT TO
REMEMBER: Reserves of
strength, physical and spiritual, lie
hidden within us.

Hidden Manna
Revelation 2:17
God gave manna to the chil-
dren of Israel when they were
starving in the desert. Long
after the need of manna passed,
the children of Israel remem-
bered God's provision. A pot of
manna was put into the ark and
later into the temple. The rab-
bis have a legend that when the
Temple was destroyed, the
manna was hidden. They say
that when the Messiah returns,
the pot of manna will be discov-
ered, and that eating of the hid-
den manna will be to enter into
the blessedness of the New
Jerusalem.
These hidden morsels
became very precious when we
think of them as heavenly food.

Christians to remember that,
though they might be denied
food offered to idols and would
be forced to abstain from hea-
then feasts, the day would come
when they would feast in heav-
en with the risen Christ.
I think of the dear 97-year
old man who would carry his
"goodies" around in a paper bag
on the days his nurse cleaned
out the refrigerator so that she
would not throw away his "hid-
den morsels". We need to cher-
ish our heavenly food in the
same way. Let's determine to
be overcomers!

ness shown us during this diffi-
cult time. We are truly appre-
ciative.

sincere thanks to all those who
have given to our family over
the past weeks. Through these
difficulty days we have been
repeatedly reminded of how for-
tunate we are to live in this

The outpouring of support was
truly humbling. We simply can-
not thank you enough.

for Myles, but took care of all of
