The Calhoun County Chamber of
Commerce celebrated community
Thursday night at their 61st Annual
Banquet held at the- W.T Neal Civic
Center.
One of the highlights of the everung
was the presentation of the Citizen of
the Year Award to Dr. Misbah Farooqi
"Thi. person has affected so many
lives and received more nominations
than any other nominee has received in
the past." Chamber President Vickdi
Montford told the crowd.
"If" you have ever been a patient of
his or had a family member who has
been. you will understand wh\ he has
been nominated." Montford stated.
"This individual has set aside his per-
sonidl life, wants and needs for the citi-
zens of Calhoun County. It is not
unusual to see him down the halls of
the Rehab center at all times of the
night or to get a personal call frun-, him

Pickron appointed to Commission


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Beth Pickron is now the second woman in
Calhoun County history to be named to the
Board of County Commissioners.
Pickron was sworn into office Monday
morning in the Calhoun County Courtroom
after being appointed to the post by Governor
Charlie Crist. She is filling the seat previously
held by her late husband, Jim Pickron, who
passed away in January. He served two terms
on the Commission.
"We just want to welcome her to the
board," says Commissioner Dan Wyrick who
recommended that his wife take his seat for
the remainder of his term-that expires in
November. ','Mr. Pickron's dying wish was for
his wife to finish out his term," Wyrick told
The County Record following Jim Pickron's
death.
"I'm just proud to fill his shoes until the
length of time in November," says Beth who
does not plan to run for the office.


Beth Pickron, the new Commissioner for District 5, receives the oath of office from
Attorney Matt Fuqua and Clerk Ruth Attaway as Commission Chairman Truman
.Grant and Commissioner Dan Wyrick look on.

CRIME


BPD


seeking


info on


burglary
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor


The Blountstown Police
Department is investigating a
burglary at a local drugstore
that occurred last Tuesday
night.
According to the BPD, an
alarm sounded at Blountstown
Drugs on West Central Avenue
around 9:30 p.m. Sgt. Darry
Temple happened to be driving
past the business at the time
and heard the alarm. When he
pulled into the parking lot, he
immediately spotted the metal
back door standing open. Next
to the door he observed a black
tire tool on the ground.
A search of the building
turned up no one, but several
bulk size bottles of pills popular
on the streets were scattered
on the floor behind the phar-
macy counter. Among them
were Hydrocodone and
Fentanyl.
Owner Jon Plummer pro-
vided an inventory of the drugs
taken. They included:
S V 457 generic Loritab
V 99 Loritab
V 872 Hydrocodone
V Two boxes of Fentanyl
patches
Ofc. Temple did take note of
a vehicle in the vicinity at the
time of the crime, however, no
suspects have been named.
Anyone with information on
this case is urged to contact the
BPD at 674-5987.

The County Record, MARCH 5, 2008, Page 4


Dear Editor:
One of the things that really
illustrates the dangerous level
of ignorance in the American
population is the statement,
"I'm not interested in politics."'
I teach American
Government and I strive to
encourage my students to be
knowledgeable and active par-
ticipants in our government. I
have been assigning students to
watch the presidential debates,
analyze them in oral and writ-
ten reports as to whom they feel
represents them the most on
various issues. It really upsets
me when I hear these young
adults, and others, make the
statement, "I really do not care,
and I have no intention of ever
voting."
This statement astounds me.
My response is "Do you really
understand what you're saying?
How in the world can any
aware person interested in
one's family and one's future
not be interested in politics?" It
is one subject that I cannot
ignore.
Look at what we average
Americans go through as we
work our way through our daily
existence. We're looking for
jobs, working, planning for the
future, educating children,
making house payments, buy-
ing groceries, fueling up cars,
planning family vacations, wor-
rying about our health, paying
down our debt, and watching a
favorite TV program.
If you think politics doesn't
influence each and every one of
these pursuits, you're tragically
mistaken. No matter what you
do, from tying your shoes to
tying the knot to tying one on,
politics is lurking in there some-
where, making things either
better or worse.
Perhaps the biggest impact
politics will have on your daily
life will be in the area of taxes.
Are you trying to save money
for a house right, now? Well,
how mUch money do you have
left over after taxes, Social
Security, and Medicare are
taken out of your check?
If you're part of a typical


two-parent American house-
hold, both of you are out there
working: your children are
probably in day care, being
taken care of by relatives, or at
school.
Do the math. No, really, do
the math. Write down the take-
home pay of each parent, and
then look at the total tax bur-
den your family pays each year.
In determining that tax bur-
den, remember to include not
just federal income taxes, Social
Security taxes, and Medicare
taxes, but also automobile
license fees, property taxes,
school taxes, sales taxes-and
don't forget the embedded
taxes in the cost of every item
you buy.
It's tough, but try to come to
some sort of a figure. What is
your family's total tax burden?
Once you have a figure, take
a look at the take-home pay for
the spouse who earns less
money-usually the wife-and if
I'm not mistaken, you'll come
to a. rather shocking realization:
She's working for one pur-
pose and one purpose only-to
pay your family's tax burden.
How's that for a wake-up
call?
Before the middle of the last
century, the average federal tax
burden on an American family
amounted to about 5 percent of
that family's total income. Now
it amounts to well over 40 per-
.cent for many families in our
county.
Turn back the clock about
half a century, to 1955 or so,
and you'll find that the bread-
winner in an average American
family had to work until some-
time around the first week in
February to pay all of that fam-
ily's taxes -for the year. Fifty
years later, not only are both
parents breadwinners, but they
both have to work well into late
May, and sometimes even early
June, before those taxes are
paid in full.
If you come in at 8:00, and
work until noon, take an hour
for lunch, and finally work until
4:30 in the afternoon-you don't
earn the first dollar for yourself

Somehow, largely through the Grace of God, devoted loyalty, and
the vast pride on the part of many people, The County Record has
never missed an issue.


until you're back from lunch.
The entire morning is dedicated
to earning money to support
government.
This, my friends, is where
politics intersects with your life-
by picking your pocket. Those
politicians you see on TV and in
our newspapers aren't just
making obscure laws and fight-
ing over policy. They're out
there seizing your money and
spending it on vote-buying pro-
grams that help them maintain
their positions of power and
prestige-while you and your
spouse labor every day to cover
the tab.
Want to buy a new car? The
price of a new car is going up
every year, due to government
action. Now the government
requires cars to have air pres-
sure monitoring, systems on all
tires. Next year it will be some
other alleged safety improve-
ment. Soon you'll have to set-
tle for a used car, thanks to
those price increases. That's
politics.
Want to build a house on a
nice little lot you've found? You
might want to build 2,100
square feet, but the local build-
ing code says it has to be 2,800
square feet. You can't afford a
house that big, so you look else-
where. That's politics.
Want to send your child to
the school of your choice in your
neighborhood? Fine, but after
paying your property taxes,
there's not much left over. It
would be nice if the school
board let you send your child to
school where you want instead
of spending it on taxes. Oh,
that's right, our school superin-
tendent and school board is tak-
ing away that choice from par-
ents. That's politics.
Hoping you or your spouse
will get that promotion you've
been striving for at work? Yet,
come home with a long face and
explain that the company's
diversity committee has decid-
ed that the job needs to go to
someone of a different gender,
age, or race. That's politics.
Enjoy that nice view out
. behind your house? Sorry-
turns out that property has
been seized by the local govern-
ment to make way for a private
developer to build a water park,
industry, or wider highway?
Don't want this in your back-
yard? That's politics.
As I share with my high
school seniors, like it or not, we
live in a society where almost
every action we take is regulat-
ed or controlled in one way or
another by government, and
our government is controlled by
politicians.
And as for you who are part
of the "I'm not interested in
politics" chorus: Politics is

Historic 1888 boiler donated to Settlement
It took several tough men and a mighty strong trailer to unload this historic gem
recently at the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement. This antique boiler, circa 1888, was
donated to the Settlement by Mays Gray of Wakulla County. Mr. Gray even paid all the
costs for delivery. The boiler weighed in excess of 20 tons, making shipment quite a
job! Settlement volunteers extend their sincere appreciation to him for this gracious
donation.

Senior Jared Lilly (left), shown with teammate Michael Kelly, was
the winning pitcher against Cottondale.

Wewa comes to town Thursday

Tigers defeat Franklin Co.,

Cottondale; lose to Malone


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor

Two out of three ain't bad as
the Blountstown Tigers chalked
up wins against Franklin
County and Cottondale before
suffering a loss to Malone last
week.
The Tigers were on their
home turf last Tuesday for a big
win over Franklin County, 15-5.
Jason Money put the bat in
motion for the Tigers, leading
the way with two hits. Matt
Vincent was on the mound the
entire game to get the win.
A road trip to Cottondale
ended in a 5-3 district win for
the Tigers Thursday. Vincent
led the hitting attack with a sin-
gle and a double. Jared Lilly,
who threw a complete game,
was the winning pitcher.
As for Friday's tangle with
Malone, "We forgot to show


up,"'says Coach Jeff Gillespie.
"We got tired and ran out of
pitching. We were also missing
two players, so lack of depth
was a factor."
Malone claimed a 15-2 vic-
tory in Tiger territory. "We only
had three hits and Lance
Clemons had two of those,"
Coach Gillespie remarks.
A home game against
Bozeman was scheduled for
Tuesday (details unavailable at
press time. The Wewa Gators
come to town Thursday for a 6
p.m. matchup. The Tigers will
travel to Malone Friday for
another. 6 p.m. game.
The Tigers held a Boston
butt sale over the weekend and
wish to extend a sincere thank
you to Chief Glenn Kimbrel,
Major Rodney Smith, Lt. Fred
Tanner, Ofc. Leo Marlowe, and
Terry Blair for their help. It was
greatly appreciated.

State's first youth hunting,

fishing facility opens Mar. 8


FWC announces grand
opening of Beau Turner Youth
Conservation Center
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC.) is. proud to,,
announce the grand opening of
the state's first youth hunting
and fishing facility at the Beau
Turner Youth Conservation
Center Saturday, March 8 in
Jefferson County.
The center, located on U.S.
19 just north of U.S. 27, is the
only private/state-run facility
specifically geared at providing
youths the opportunity to learn
and develop hunting and fishing
skills, and teaching land stew-
ardship and a greater apprecia-
tion for the outdoors.
The event is free and open to
children of all ages, beginning at
10 a.m. and lasting until 3 p.m.
Pre-registration is not neces-
sary. Activities include fishing
and casting competitions;
Olympic-style archery; muzzle-
loader, shotgun and rifle shoot-
ing; and hunting dog and K-9
demonstrations. An FWC law
enforcement helicopter, as well
as local NFL hall-of-famer Jack
Youngblood, also will be on
hand.
Every child attending will
receive a free Shakespeare fish-
ing rod-and-reel combo and
tackle box (courtesy of Fish
Florida), and a longleaf pine
seedling (compliments of
. McElroy Forestry, Inc.) to take
home. They also have a chance
at winning several door prizes,
such as a pair of binoculars,


fishing rods and reels, a Genesis
bow, a Henry .22 rifle and a
week of summer camp at the
Ocala Outdoor Adventure
Camp. *
Food will be provided .for a
small fee, or participants can
bring their own sack lunch.
The goal of the 160-acre
center, donated by environmen-
tally conscious Beau Turner,
son of television mogul Ted
Turner, is to preserve Florida's
hunting heritage and teach
youths how to hunt safely, legal-
ly and ethically. The property
features a stocked, 36-acre
pond to fish and hunt water-
fowl, a dove field, state-of-the-
art rifle and shotgun ranges, a
3-D archery course and solar-
powered skeet-shooting facili-
ties that throw biodegradable
clay pigeons.
During the event, parents
can sign up their 12- to 17-year-
old children for spring and sum-
mer classes in gun safety,
archery, fishing, shooting and
other outdoor activities. These
classes will be free, and the
FWC will provide all necessary
equipment and materials.
The center also plans to hold
future youth hunts on an adjoin-
ing 900 acres through the
FWC's Youth Hunting Program
of Florida.
For more information on the
Beau Turner Youth
Conservation Center, or to

on how to get there, contact

ALTHA, FEBRUARY 28-
Fireworks are mainly associat-
ed with the fourth of July.
"Why wait so long to have
fun?" asked the varsity Altha
Wildcats last Thursday night.
They answered their own ques-
tion in the fourth inning by
lighting 3 bombs in the and
delivered them over the outfield
fence to highlight a 7-1 win over
the 2A Brookwood Christian
School Warriors (0-1; 0-0) from
Thomasville, GA.
In the first-ever meeting
between the two schools,
Brookwood's leadoff batter
scored their only run after he
drew a walk in the first inning.
Altha (6-0; 0-0) tied the
game in the second inning.
Noah Byler led off with a single
to left field and he reached sec-
ond base on an error by the sec-
ond baseman. Jake
Edenfield singled to center-
field, moving Noah to third.
Next, Cale Chafin ripped a
grass-burner down the first base
line, plating Noah.
In the Wildcats' history
making fourth inning, they
slammed 3 homeruns (two
back-to-back) to highlight a 5-
run inning. Ethan Byler led off
the inning with a free pass to
first base then he stole second
base. Jake Edenfield followed
by hammering a double to left
field that scored Ethan and
Edenfield stole third base.
With one out Keith Kirkpatrick


helped himself by jacking his
first homerun (a 2-run variety)
of the season over the left cen-
terfield fence. Next, Gary
Chew liked Kirkpatrick's
homerun location so well, that
his second long-ball of the sea-
son exited the pasture at almost
the same spot. With two outs
Josh McIntosh lifted his first
homer of his varsity career over
the left field fence to give the
Wildcats a 6-1 lead.
In the fifth inning Jake
Edenfield returned a two-out
single back up the middle. He
stole second and reached third
base on a throwing error by the
catcher. He would score Altha's
final run on a wild pitch.
Keith Kirkpatrick picked up
his second complete game win
in as many starts. It took him
1:38 minutes to deliver his 89-
pitch gem. Of the 26 batters
Kirkpatrick faced, he struck out
12, gave up only an earned run
off of 3 hits and issued only 2
walks.
Leading the Wildchts at the
plate was Jake Edenfield who
was a perfect 3 for 3 on the
night. He scored 2 runs, picked
up an RBI and had 2 stolen
bases. Cale Chafin was 2 for 3
and he had a RBI. Josh
McIntosh was 2 for 4 (including
his solo homerun), scored once,
and was credited with a RBI.
Noah Byler singled in his 2 at
bats and crossed home plate
once. Keith Kirkpatrick had a
2-run jack in his 3 at bats
resulting in 2 RBIs and he


touched the dish once. Gary
Chew homered in his 3 plate
appearances resulting in him
scoring a run and giving him a
RBI.
THOMASVILLE (GA),
FEBRUARY 29-The
Wildcats continued their fire-
works display on Friday night.
The only difference was
Altha opened up a bigger can of
"whuppin"' in the Warrriors'
backyard and recorded their
seventh win of the season, 13-2,
in just 6 innings.
The Wildcats (7-0; 0-0, 2A)
opened the second inning by
posting 6 runs. With one out
Ethan Byler was issued a walk.
Jake Edenfield followed with a
single back through the box
advancing Ethan to second
base. Cale Chafin lifted a sacri-
fice fly to left field that moved
Ethan to third and Edenfield to
second. A pitch to load up the
bases hit Keith Kirkpatrick.
Likewise, a pitch that scored
Ethan hit Gary Chew and the
sacks were still full of Wildcats.
Then Tony Golden reached on
a fielding error by the shortstop
and Edenfield scored. Josh
McIntosh drew a bases-loaded
walk to plate Kirkpatrick. Tad
Scott's shot down the first base
line was mishandled by the first
baseman, allowing Scott to take
first base. Also, Golden and
McIntosh scored on the play.
The Warriors (0-2:0-0, 2A)
put their 2 runs on the board in
the third inning.
In the fifth inning the


Wildcats continued to swing
their hot sticks. Noah Byler led
off with a double to right field
and advanced to third after the
pitcher balked. Showing a little
brotherly love, Ethan Byler
scored his older sibling with a
single to left centerfield. After
the pitcher committed his sec-
ond balk, Ethan moved to sec-
ond. Next, Jake Edenfield
drew a walk and after a pitch
hit Cale Chafin, the bases were
juiced. With a 1-0 count, Keith
Kirkpatrick hammered a
grand-slam homerun to over
the leftfield fence, giving him 9
RBIs on the season and extend-
ing Altha's lead, 11-2.
Altha would 10-run
Brookwood in the sixth inning.
Tad Scott was issued a leadoff
walk. With one out Ethan
Byler launched his first homer
of the year. It was a two-run,
no-doubt variety that continued
to gain altitude as it quickly
made its way over the left cen-
terfield fence and sawed off pine
tree limbs in its ascent.
In another historic note for
the Wildcats, this was the first
time (according to Altha's base-
ball records) that they had 10-
runned their opponent 3 times
in one season after 5 innings of
play.
With 99 pitches Wildcats'
hurler Tad Scott picked up his
second complete game win, giv-
ing him a 4-0 record on the sea-
son. Of the 27 batters he faced,

Tiger lifters open season




with win at meet in Wewa


BY COACH GREG JORDAN

The Tigers traveled to Wewa
on Thursday to compete in boys
weightlifting. The Tigers took


Wildcat lifter Terry Stinson benches 295 in a recent training session.



AHS lifters open



season with win


BY COACH ROBBIE SMITH

The Altha Boys
Weightlifting team opened up
the 2008 season with a win over
Port St. Joe and Liberty
County.
The final score at the meet
was Altha 53, Port St. Joe 28
and Liberty County 27. The
Wildcats won 8 out of 10 weight
classes at the meet.
Weight class winners were:
Ethan Ellis, Cody Sewell, Gary
Chew, Josh McIntosh, Tony
Golden, Terry Stinson, Noah
Byler, and Andrew Coker.
This year's team has several
boys who will have a chance to
make some noise at the state
qualifiers and at the state final.
Returning medalists from a
year ago, Tony Golden and
Gary Chew, are poised to go
after more medals this year.
In the opening meet of the
year, Gary Chew had a success-
ful clean and jerk of 275
pounds. Gary is in the 139
pound weight class. The state
record in the 139 pound weight
class is 285 pounds.
Tony Golden has made big
gains over the off-season, espe-
cially in the beich press.
Golden finished sixth at state


last year, and will look to
improve that placing this year.
Senior Josh McIntosh has
made huge gains over the off
season and will also have a shot
at qualifying for state in the 154
pound weight class.
Junior Terry Stinson and
Senior John Tedesco have also
vastly improved over the off
season and should both enjoy
success this year. Stinson had
the highest total on the team in
the opening season win.
Tedesco has cleaned 300 in
training.
Senior Remington Walker
will look to make his first year
on the weightlifting team mem-
orable, as. he works on making
the 129 pound weight class.
Walker had a 255 pound bench
press in his first meet.
Overall, this year's team is
mostly freshmen and sopho-
mores with a few seniors and
one junior. It will be hard to
accomplish the runner-up feat
of last year, but this team
should do big things this year.
Barring no injuries, this team
has a few boys who will have a
chance to bring home some
hardware from state.
Stay tuned as the season
unfolds!


Wildcats cont'd


Tad fanned 14, issued 2 walks,
hit one batter and surrendered
2 earned runs.
Altha's Ethan Byler had the
hot hand at the plate. He was 2
for 3 (including his 2-run home-
,run), scored 3 runs, and had 3
RBIs on the night. Cale Chafin
doubled in his 2 plate appear-
ances and he scored a run.
Keith Kirkpatrick's three at
bats produced his "granny", he
crossed home plate twice, and
he had 5 RBIs. Jake Edenfield
was 1 for 3 and he scored 2
times. Josh McIntosh doubled
in his 3 at bats, scored once,
and had a RBI. Tad Scott had
a 1- for-3-night and he scored a
run. In his 4 at bats, Noah
Byler doubled and scored once.
PONCE DE LEON,
MARCH 1-"In like a lamb,
out like a lion."
Not only was the first part of
that saying true about March
but it was also true about the
Altha Wildcats last Saturday
when they faced the Ponce de
Leon Pirates. "Silence of the
Wildcats' Bats" (they had only
2 doubles on 7 hits) and "Too
Many Errors" (they committed
a season-high, 6 errors) was the
featured matinees on this pic-
ture perfect afternoon. In the
end Altha had lost their first
game of the season, 15-5, in five
innings.
Altha (7-1; 0-0, 2-2A)
scored their first run in their
first at bat. Tony Golden
reached first on a after he
swung at a third strike, wild
pitch. Next, Josh McIntosh laid
down a sacrifice bunt that
allowed Golden to move to sec-
ond. Tad Scott slapped a RBI
double to right centerfield to
plate Golden.
But in the bottom of the
inning is when the proverbial
wheels fell off for Altha. Ponce
de Leon (3-1; 0-0, 1-2A) would
put up a 6 spot on the Wildcats.
They scored 7 runs off of 3 hits,
3 walks and 2 fielding errors.
In the third inning the
Pirates added 3 more runs to
take a 9-1 lead.
Altha would cut into that
lead with 2 runs of their own in
the fourth inning. Noah Byler
led off with an infield single.
Ethan Byler reached after
being hit by a pitch. With run-
ners at first and second, Jake
Edenfield found himself on first
as result of a fielder's choice.
Ethan was forced out at second
base and Noah advanced to
third. Noah would score on a
wild pitch and Edenfield would
cross the plate on a fielding


error by the pitcher.
Ponce de Leon kept the
pressure on in their frame of the
fourth inning by posting 2 more
runs and making it a 12-3 ball-
game.
However, Altha would go
down swinging in the fifth
inning. With 1-1 count Josh
McIntosh turned on the next
pitched and hit a screaming
two-out line drive into left field.
Next, Tad Scott lit a grass-burn-
er and sent it through the left
side of the infield, advancing
McIntosh to second. Noah
Byler slammed his second dou-
ble of the season to left field to
plate McIntosh and Scott.
Ponce de Leon would cross
the dish 3 more times in the
bottom of the fifth inning and,
after two hours of playing, had
defeated Altha, 15-5.
Cale Chafin suffered his first
loss of the season. In 3 2/3
innings of work, Cale (1-1)
threw 115 pitches. He struck
out 7 batters, walked 5, and
allowed 10 hits. Of the 12 runs
scored during Cale's watch,
only 6 were earned. Tony
Golden (0-0) relieved Chafin in
the fifth inning. He struck out a
batter, allowed 3 runs on 2 hits
and he hit a batter.
Leading the Wildcats at the
plate was Josh McIntosh who
was 2 for 2 and he scored a run.
Tad Scott was 2 for 3 (including
a double), scored once, and he
had a RBI. Noah Byler was 2
for 3, one of which was a dou-
ble. Tony Golden singled in his
three plate appearances and
touched home plate once.
Hopefully, Altha will not
wait until the end of March to
begin playing like Wildcats
again but will have done so yes-
terday (Tuesday) against dis-
trict-foe, Cottondale (see next
week's issue for game details).
Tomorrow (Thursday) the
Malone Tigers come calling on
the Wildcats varsity contest.
This Friday they'll travel to
Sneads for another district
game. Then it's back to "The
Cotton Patch" to host the
Liberty County Bulldogs. All of
these games begin at 4:00 p.m.

educated these future voters
about party affiliation, polling
places and the rules regulating

Establishing a genealogy
room at the M&B Depot. was
the first step in a long term,

FCAT, Stanford 10 cont'd-


read and analyze the passages
and answer questions based on
the passages. The FCAT
Mathematics tests require stu-
dents to solve numerical prob-
lems taken from real-life situa-
tions. The FCAT science tests
require students to apply sci-
ence knowledge and concepts to
real-world situations. The
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test demands an
in-depth understanding and
application of information that
is not typical of most standard-
ized tests.

How can you help your
child be successful?
Make sure your child
attends school regularly. The
more effort your child puts into
learning the more likely he or
she will perform well on tests.


Meet with your child's
teacher to discuss his or her
progress. Ask teachers to sug-
gest ways to help your child
prepare for tests.
Encourage your child,
especially when he or she does
well. A positive outlook helps
children do their best.
Provide a quiet, comfort-
able place for studying at home.
Make sure that your child
is well rested on school days,
especially on test days.
Give your child a well-
rounded diet. This will lielp
ensure a healthy body and a
healthy, active mind.
Provide books and maga-
zines for your child. By reading
new materials, your child will
learn new words that might
appear on tests.
Don't be too anxious about


your child's test scores. The
best advice you can give your
child is to "just relax and do
your best."

Release of FCAT test scores
for districts and students will be
somewhat later this year due to
later testing dates. Tentative
release times of FCAT test
results should be late May -
early June. School grades and
AYP (Adequate Yearly
Progress) reports will most like-
ly be mid-July. Schools will
send the student reports home
* at the end of the school year
with the final report cards, if
available from the state. FCAT
results for schools and districts
are reported through the media
and are available on the Florida
Department of Education Web
Site.

thought to

0emem6er
For most of
us great earth-
shaking
achievements
will never be
ours. We will
Tim Adams vety likely never
eDr be known
throughout the
world for our
accomplishments. Nor will we be
known as failures because this
recognition never came to us.
The most successful of all people
are those who have accomplished
indirect achievements. The little
tasks we perform. Year after year a
person who gives his best to needy
neighbors, and through this effort he
helps them gain triumph.
Who can determine how many
people see a tiny star. How can we
determine the good that comes from
a single unselfish deed.
OUR THOUGHT TO
REMEMBER:
"One look and there may be an end
to strife; one smile, and hate may
sheathe her cruel knife."

Faithful Yet Uncertain
Acts 20:22
What a study of faith in the
midst of uncertainty! Paul was
compelled to go to Jerusalem
not knowing what would hap-
pen to him.
Paul had 'received offerings
for the Jerusalem. church while
preaching to the Gentiles on his
third missionary journey. His
Christian friends in Ephesus,
'Tyre, and Caesarea had begged
him not to continue to his desti-
nation, Jerusalem. But com-
pelled by the Holy Spirit to con-
tinue, he pushed forward any-
way.
His Christian friends were
right. In Jerusalem, when Paul
was on his way to the Temple to
pray, his enemies created a riot.
He was jailed for more than two
years.
Finally, as a Roman citizen,
Paul appealed to Caesar to hear
his case, but on his way to

he was jailed again, but he did
not complain. Instead, he
encouraged believers who visit-
ed him, he witnessed to the jail-
ers who guarded him, and it
was in this Roman jail that Paul
wrote what is known as the
"Prison Epistles."
Paul was faithful in adversity
and God used him and his wXit-
ings to tell us to be faithful,sdo
God's will, even when you don't
know what's going on.
He giveth more grace when
the burdens grow greater;
He sendeth more strength
when the labors increase.
To added affliction He
addeth His mercy;
To multiplied trials, His mul-
tiplied peace.

Sunday morning drug bust
A routine traffic stop ended in a large drug bust Sunday morning.
According to the Calhoun County Sheriff's Office, Dep. Scotty Norris was
parked on SR 71 South at Pine Memorial Cemetery monitoring traffic when
he stopped a Texas truck, driven by Edward Cale Pierce, 27, for having a
busted windshield. Pierce and his passenger, Robert Guiterrez, 42, report-
edly appeared nervous and the dispatcher confirmed active warrants on
Gutierrez. He was placed under arrest and found in possession of a pill.
Gutierrez allegedly stated he had a small amount of marijuana in the truck
passenger seat. The vehicle was searched with assistance from Liberty
County Dep. Todd Wheetley and his K-9 Aldo, along with FHP Trooper Wes
Horsey. Approximately 80 grams of marijuana separated into three clear
bags was discovered, along with a small quantity of the drug, residue, and
paraphernalia, including digital scales. Pictured above (from left) are Dep.
Wheetley, K-9 Aldo, Dep. Scotty Norris, and FHP Trooper Harsey with the
confiscated items. Gutierrez claimed ownership and was taken into cus-
tody. He was charged with possession of more than 20 grams of marijua-
na. Pierce was charged with possession of paraphernalia.

Looking back at the history of...



Calhoun Co. Extension & 4-H


BY JUDY LUDLOW
Extension Director
Below is a brief history of the
Extension Service in Calhoun
County. We want to compile as
complete a history as possible,
especially about individuals
who have worked with the
Extension Service, who the
people are in the pictures
below, and other interesting
facts. If you know of any
employees or facts, please call
our office at 674-8323. Thank
you!
The University of Florida
Cooperative Extension Service
has been a part of the lives of
many Calhoun County resi-
dents since the late 1920's.
The 4-H programs that have
existed through time have
encouraged the youth of
Calhoun County to be all they
can be. The goal of the 4-H
program is to provide opportu-
nities for youth to learn new
skills that foster leadership, cit-
izenship, personal achievement,
and healthy growth in a fun,
energized environment. Adult
volunteers are crucial to the
success of any 4-H program. In
Calhoun County there have
been countless volunteer hours
devoted to youth development
since the program's inception.
Reciprocally, the 4-H program
provides adult volunteers from
the community a place to share
their time, skills, life experi-
ences, and guidance with the
youth of Calhoun County.
There are, unfortunately, no
records of who the very first
Calhoun County agent was.
Mr. Harvey T. Paulk, Calhoun
County Extension Director
from 1962 to 1972, provided a
list of county agents that he was
aware of. Mr. Woodrow Brown,
Mr. Thomas Byron Jones, Mr.
Harvey T. Paulk, Mr. James
Yelvington, and Colonel Logan
Barbee were County Extension
Directors from the 1940's to
2006. Home Economics
Agents, Home Economics
Program Assistants, and
Assistant County Agents in that
time period were Ms. Grace
Warren (?), Ms. Annie Wood
Finlay, Ms. Virginia Davis, Ms.
Ida Jo Harrison, Ms. Betty
Crowe, Ms. Linda Barber, Ms.
Monica Brinkley, Ms. Sarah
Thomas, Ms. Jessica Bowden,
Ms. Mary Joyce Segers, Ms.
Laura Davis, Ms. Clara
McCroan, Mr. Russel Rudd,
Mr. Charles Saunders, Mr.
Allan Taylor, Mr. Floyd
Marlow, Mr. Jerry Wyrick, and
Mr. Wayne Martin.
Florida's 4-H Program has
no doubt produced many suc-
cessful alumni, and Calhoun
County is no exception. It is
difficult to track the lives of the
many. successful 4-H children of
Calhoun County but one, how-
ever, was recently honored with
statewide recognition, and a
second is a retired Army
Colonel, currently serving in
Iraq. Mrs. Patty Melvin was
raised in Blountstown and was
a Calhoun County 4-H club


member in the 4th through 6th
grades, She has volunteered
with the Jackson County 4-H
program for more than 10 years
dedicating her time as a club
leader and positively influenc-
ing the lives of hundreds of
youth. Because of her contribu-
tions, Mrs. Melvin was recently
honored with the Florida 4-H
Volunteer of the Year Award!
Colonel Logan Barbee was also
raised in Blountstown and was
a Calhoun County 4-H member
in the 1960's. He was the
Calhoun County Extension
Director from 1981-2006.
Logan retired from the army
with the rank of Colonel Special
Operations, and is currently
serving in Iraq as Senior
Executive Advisor to the US
State Department.
Calhoun County 4-H also
has an interesting connection
with the history of Camp
Timpoochee. This camp is
located on the Choctawhatchee
Bay in panhandle Florida, and
was established as the first resi-
dential 4-H camping facility in
Florida in 1926. Additionally, it
was one of the first 4-H residen-
tial camps in the nation. New
cabins were built in 1984 to
replace the old rustic wood cab-
ins still in use at Camp
Timpoochee. Logan Barbee,
Calhoun County Extension
Director from 1981 to 2006,
was instrumental at securing
and re-locating those rustic
Timpoochee cabins to the
Calhoun County 4-H Youth
Camp. These cabins are still in
use, and in addition to camping,
the Youth Camp provides
numerous opportunities for
activities for residents of
Calhoun and surrounding coun-
ties.
Early in its history, the
major 4-H activities in Calhoun
County focused on homemaker
clubs, and activities in the
schools. In 1975 the Calhoun
County Commissioners passed
a resolution proclaiming
October 5-11, 1975 as 4-H
week in Calhoun County. In
that school year there were 438
4-H members in 13 different
'clubs. "Members participated
in 29 individual project areas,
including cooking, sewing, rab-
bits, public speaking, forestry,
child development, small
engines, veterinary science, dog
care and training, and many
other areas."
Recent 4-H clubs and activ-
ities have revolved around
healthy eating and cooking, out-
door adventures, livestock, per-
sonal safety, the environment,
and science. Although enroll-
ment numbers are low, and
there has been significant
turnover of 4-H Agents in the
last 5 years, the future is
encouraging in that many
adults who participated in 4-H
in their youth are willing to vol-
unteer for the children of today.
If you want to volunteer in
the Calhoun County 4-H pro-
gram, please call our office at,
674-8323. Thank you for your
interest!
