SUSPECT APPREHENDED AFTER 110 MPH PURSUIT



High speed chase ends in arrest
...........


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A high speed chase through
two counties at speeds exceed-
ing 110 miles per hour ended
in one arrest early Sunday.
Freddie Lamont Solomon,
38, of Bartow, is facing a long
list of charges including aggra-
vated assault on a law enforce-
ment officer, resisting arrest
with violence, fleeing and elud-
ing, reckless driving, driving


without a license and violation
of state probation.
According to the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Office, Dep.
Eddie Dalton was observing
traffic on SR 20 West at
Tatum's Hardware when he
clocked Solomon's vehicle trav-
eling 60 mph in a 35 mph zone.
When he attempted to pull
Solomon over, he initially
slowed down, then accelerated,
reaching 110 mph at the inter-
section of SR 71 and 20. As


they passed the Sheriff's
Office, Dep. Bliss Moreau
joined the pursuit eastbound on
SR 20 with the speed continu-
ing to climb.
About seven miles into
Liberty County, Dep. Moreau
moved ahead of the vehicle to
deploy spike strips. The plan
went awry when Solomon sud-
denly slammed on brakes,
causing Dep. Dalton to take
evasive action to keep from
crashing into the suspect's


vehicle. Solomon then lost con-
trol of his car and slid sideways
into a ditch an estimated 100
feet. However, he regained
, control, turned around, and
accelerated .toward Dep.
Dalton's patrol car. Dep.
Dalton quickly put the car in
reverse and Solomon reported-
ly came within six inches of the
driver's side door. Solomon
then headed back toward
Blountstown at speeds estimat-
ed over 110 mph. Liberty


County Deputy Wade Kelly
joined the pursuit as they left
Bristol.
Dep: Dalton radioed
Blountstown Police Officer
Jared Nichols and had him
deploy spike strips at the west-
bound side of the Apalachicola
River bridge. Solomon hit the
strips and all four tires began to
go flat. Ofc. Nichols was unable
to remove the strips before

returns


land to


Guilford

BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Calhoun County Sheriff
David Tatum is returning a
parcel of land to it's original
owner who has filed an ethics
complaint against him.
As reported last month in
The County Record, Rufus
Guilford deeded over two acres
of land at Lake McKenzie in
the Mossy Pond Community to
Tatum back in 2006. "I gave it
to the Sheriff's Office for the
kids to swim and the old folks
to go down there, and talk,"
Guilford told The County
Record.
Sheriff Tatum says he was
trying to fulfill Guilford's wish-
es when he went before the
County Commission on June
18, 2006, asking for a long
term renewable lease to the
Commission for the property so
the public could use it and the
Sheriff's Office could patrol the
site. The 20-year lease agree-
ment was approved for $1 per
year .with the Sheriff paying
the $20 out of his own pocket
to cover the county's lease.
Nearly two years later,
Guilford is now saying he
intended to give the property
to the Sheriff's Office, instead
of Sheriff Tatum as he did.
With the assistance of his
friend, Patti Wood, he has
asked the Florida Ethics
Complaint to investigate the
matter.
Sheriff Tatum has found an

again and Dep. Dalton
deployed an M-26 Taser, strik-
ing' him in the side and back.
Dep. Kelly arrived to assist
Dep. Dalton in handcuffing
Solomon, but he continued to
resist violently, swinging his
arms and attempting to get up:
They eventually cuffed him and
placed him in the patrol car. His
passenger, unidentified in the
report, locked the doors to
Solomon's vehicle to keep
authorities out. Dep. Moreau
and Ofc. Nichols busted a pas-
senger window and removed
him.
Solomon remained in cus-
tody at the Calhoun County Jail
at press time.


Crash continued-


ing Holley, who was the sole
occupant, out the driver's side
door.
Jackson County EMS
responded. The accident was
investigated by FHP Cpl. J.D.
Gordon.
According to Rev. Shawn
Williams, who serves as pastor
at Holley's church, Traveler's
Rest Freewill Baptist in
Clarksville, Holley was a "dili-
gent, hard working gentleman."
Williams says Holley was in the
process of making a career
change and had just left his job
at Chipola College after eight
years. "He was in the commu-
nications department,"
Williams remarks, adding, "He
did all their videos, he was
excellent on computers."


Williams notes that Holley's
personal life was on the mend.
After losing his wife last year,
he had just remarried in
January., "You never know
when it's your time to go," says
Williams. "That's why you
have to be ready."
Roger leaves behind his wife,
Dawn, his daughter, Nicole
Mathews, and one granddaugh-
ter, Abbigail, along with his par-
ents, Bobby Ray and Marlene
Adams Holley, a brother,
MichAel Ray Holley, and two
stepchildren. Visitation is set for
tonight, Wednesday, Mar. 12,

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.


Congressman Allen Boyd
(D-Nortli Florida) announced
this week the launch of a new
bipartisan congressional cau-
cus-the America Supports You
Caucus-to support members
of the U.S. Armed Forces and
their families. Congressman
Boyd is a Co-Chair of the
America Supports You Caucus
along with Congresswoman
Mary Bono Mack (R-CA) and
Congressmen Adam Schiff (D-
CA) and Connie Mack (R-FL).
The America Supports You
Causus will support the good
work already being done by
organizations across the country
to support our men and women
in uniform and their families.
Over 27 Members of Congress
have joined the caucus, which
also will highlight the America
Supports You program, a
Department of Defense pro-
gram that connects individuals,
organizations, and companies to
hundreds of homefront groups
that offer a variety of support to
the military community.
Through the America Supports
You program, people are send-
ing care packages to soldiers,
donating airline miles to help
reunite returning military men
and women with their families,
supporting scholarship funds,
building homes for the wound-

High speo
Dep. Dalton reached the foot of
the bridge and he was unable to
avoid them. He continued pur-
suing Solomon into the down-
town area, noting in his report
that Solomon's tires were "com-
ing apart and there were sparks
and debris flying everywhere."
Solomon's vehicle was on it's
last leg in front of Magnolia
Square where he bailed. Dep.
Dalton exited his patrol car and
began to chase him. As they ran
over a sidewalk at the square,
Dep. Dalton tripped and
injured his foot, but got back up
and managed to run Solomon
down behind Bay Ford. Dep.
Dalton ordered Solomon onto
the ground, but he failed to
comply and reached into his


ed, and much, much more.
"I am excited to be a part of
this new effort in Congress to
show our appreciation for the
bravery, commitment, and sac-
rifice of our troops and their
families," said Congressman
Boyd. "There are hundreds of
organizations in Florida and
across the country that are pro-
viding valuable assistance to
our military community. I am
eager to highlight and encour-
age these outstanding efforts
and the good work being done
by the America Supports You
program through this Caucus."
As an example of the posi-
tive partnerships resulting from


the America Supports You pro-
gram, the Caucus Co-Chairs
were joined by Postmaster
General John Potter, who
announced the U.S. Postal
Service's new, larger flat-rate
box at a reduced price for pack-
ages sent to military members
and families stationed overseas.
The new Priority Mail Large
Flat-Rate box is 50 percent
larger than current flat-rate
boxes, and for the first time in
history, the Postal Service is
offering a $2 discount when
sending the larger box to an
APO/FPO address, enabling
customers to send more with
one flat price.


Bessie Wynn to be honored Mar. 29

The party will be held at the

"As a veteran of Vietnam, I
know how much it means to our
troops and their families to be
reminded of the support and
goodwill of the American people
back home," Boyd stated.
"America Supports You's part-
nership with the U.S. Postal
Service to provide the first-ever
military discount is just one
example of how the America
Supports You program is assist-
ing our military community."
Also joining the Caucus Co-
Chairs for the launch of the new
caucus were Army General
Gary Patton, the America
Supports You Joint Chiefs
spokesperson; Deputy Assistant
Secretary of Defense Allison
Barber; and representatives

Land dispute-
easy remedy for the problem.
"I met with the Board of
SCounty Commissioners last
Tuesday night to ask them to
allow me to terminate the lease
between me and the BCC so
that I could return the property
to Mr. Guilford," he tells The
County Record. "Initially, it
was Mr. Guilford's desire to
preserve the property in perpe-
tuity and he sought my help to
do so. That has since changed
so I returned the property to
him so that he may exercise
control of it and do as he wishes
with it."
Sources say Guilford has
plans to give the property to
Wood to manage for him.

Le'Tonya Reed crowned



Ms. Florida Plus America


Le'Tonya Reed of
Blountstown, Florida, has been
crowned Ms. Florida Plus
America.
Le'Tonya will compete with
women from all over the United
States for the title of 2008 Plus
America Elite this summer in
Dallas, Texas.
"I entered this pageant to
help promote positive self-
esteem to full-figured women
and to prove that we Big
Beautiful Women are changing
the face of the world," said
Le'Tonya. The Miss Plus
America Pageant system is
unlike any other pageant con-
cept. It celebrates the inner
beauty of each contestant, as
well as recognizing their com-
mitment to their communities.
Melissa Stamper, Executive
Director for Coronet
Productions says, "Ms. Reed is
an ideal candidate for the Miss
Plus America Pageant. We are
proud to have her as a state
titleholder."
Le'Tonya is the daughter of
Ms. Marjorie Peterson, Mr.
Jeremiah Peterson, and Mr.
John Thomas Reed. She is the
grand daughter of Mr. J. T.
Reed, Mrs. Ella Mae Peterson,
The Late Ms. Equilla Scott,
The Late Mr. James Jones, The
Late Mrs. Mary Reed, and the
Late Mr. Nemiah Peterson.
Le'Tonya currently holds


LE'TONYA REED


two local titles and two state
titles. She is the reigning Ms.
Blountstown 2007, Ms. Heart
of the Panhandle 2007, Ms.
Florida Woodlands 2007, and
Ms. Florida Plus America-
2008.
As Ms Florida Plus
America, Le'Tonya will have
the opportunity to further pro-
mote her platform, 'American
Cancer Society/Relay For Life'.
"It was easy for me to choose
the AMC as my platform
because my brother-in-law was
diagnosed with cancer. He
received experimental stem-cell
research and now his cancer is


in remission. In December of
2007, my mother was diag-
nosed with caner. Thank God
her surgery was successful and
she is doing well. The race to
find a cure is very personal to
me," says Le'Tonya. "I am also
a member of "Queens with a
Cause", an organization of local
queens who raise money for
Relay for Life." Le'Tonya
would like to prove that no mat-
ter the shape or size, plus-sized
women can make a difference
in society.
Le'Tonya is currently work-
ing on a bachelor's degree in
Education. She is employed as
a Para-Professional at
Blountstown Elementary
School where they are "Racing
for Excellence" in 2008.
A newcomer to the MPA
pageant, Le'Tonya plans to use
her state title to help gain
awareness for cancer research
and to raise funds to help find a
cure. These funds will also help
cancer patient who are current-
ly battling cancer. "I plan to
speak to people and organiza-
tions to help raise awareness
and to encourage people to get
tested. Early detection is
important in the fight against
cancer. I also plan to visit chil-
dren in cancer wards to give
them a smile and to let them
know someone cares," says
Le'Tonya.

Keith Kirkpatrick hammers three-run homer


Wildcats defeat Sneads, 11-1;


host Graceville on Thursday


ALTHA," MARCH 6-To
err is human.
To err six times in their sec-
ond straight game resulted in
Altha's second loss of the sea-
son, 8-5, to the Malone Tigers
last Thursday night.
Malone loaded the bases in
the first inning but Altha (7-2;
0-0, 2-2A) worked their way
out of it when the Wildcats'
pitcher, Keith Kirkpatrick,
induced the Tigers' into 2
groundouts.
Cale Chafin scored Altha's
first run in the second inning.
He reached on a walk,
advanced to second base on an
error by the pitcher, stole third
and scored on an error by the
third baseman.
Malone (2-0; 0-0, 2-1A)
would add 2 more runs in the
fifth inning, courtesy of a walk
and another fielding error to
take a 3-1 lead.
In the fifth inning, Wildcat
Ethan Byler made it 3-2 after
he slammed his second home-
run of the season over the left
centerfield fence.
The Tigers would add 5
more runs in the seventh inning
to give them a 8-2 lead.
But Altha would go down
swinging in their last at bat.
Josh McIntosh led off with a
single. With one out Noah
Byler drew a walk. Then
Ethan Byler became the first
Wildcat this season to jack 2
homeruns in a game. This 3-
run variety exited again over


the left centerfield fence.
Keith Kirkpatrick (2-1) suf-
fered his first loss of the season.
Malone held a 3-2 lead when he
left the game in the fifth inning.
The Wildcats' right-hander
struck out 7 of the 23 batters he
faced, he surrendered only 2
earned runs off of 4 hits, and
Keith walked 4 Tigers.
Ethan Byler led the
Wildcats with the stick going 2
for 4, scoring twice and posted 4
RBIs. Keith Kirkpatrick sin-
gled in his 3 plate appearances.
Josh McIntosh was 1 for 4 and
he scored a run.
In his first outing, the junior
varsity Wildcats' right-hander,
Chuck Simmons (1-0) did a
great job to help his team to a 4-
2 win over Malone.
Working in the first four
innings, Simmons fanned 6 bat-
ters, scattered 3 hits walked
only one Tigers.
In addition to his work on
the hill, Simmons also fielded
his position well. He assisted in
putting out 5 would-be base
runners.
The Wildcats (3-3) scored 3
runs in the second inning. With
one out Caleb Chew was issued
a walk and he advanced to sec-
ond on a error by the shortstop.
Brent McClendon reached on a
fielder's choice and D.J.
Griswold- walked to load the
bases. Chew would score
McClendon and Griswold on
his first two-out double of his
career.


Altha plated another run in
the fourth frame. With two outs
Caleb Morris reach on a field-
er's choice and he moved to sec-
ond base on the catcher's indif-
ference. Forrest McCrone
brought Morris -home on his
RBI-single through the left side
of the infield.
Malone scored their 2 runs
in the fifth inning.
SNEADS, MARCH 7-
Good things come to those who
wait.
The Wildcats (8-2; 1-0, 2-
2A) had to wait 34 minutes to
start their varsity game due to
the fact that earlier that after-
noon Sneads had to dry out
their infield with an airboat.
Not only did they have to wait
for the start of the game, they
were also patient at the plate
* and their patience paid off in a
11-1 pasting of the Pirates (2-5;
1-2, 2-2A) in 6 innings.
Altha didn't waste any time
in getting on the board. Lead
off batter Josh McIntosh
reached base after being hit by
a pitch. He advanced to second
base on a passed ball. Tad Scott
was issued a walk. McIntosh
and Scott and moved to third
and second, respectively, on the
catcher's indifference.
McIntosh scored after being hit
by the catcher's attempted
pick-off throw. Scott moved to
third on a wild pitch then he
stole home to give Altha a 2-0

BY MIKE JOHNSON
District ABC Program Liaison

In 2006, the Florida
Legislature created a Business
- Community (ABC) School
Program to promote partner-
ships in education and to
address shortage of space in
overcrowded school systems.
An ABC school is a public
school that offers instruction to
students in kindergarten
through third grade levels or
any single or multiple grade lev-
els within this range at facilities
provided by a local business. A
qualified host business may
submit a proposal agreeing to
provide the appropriate types of
space on their site for such a
school, including the associated
operating and upkeep expens-
es.


Calhoun County School
District will provide an educa-
tional program, including the
appropriate instructional sup-
ports, administration and staff,
teachers, textbooks, materials,
supplies, and curriculum for the
school.
First priority for admission of
students to an ABC school will
be 'given to the children of the
owners and employees of the
business. If additional capacity
remains after children of the
owners and employees are
admitted, the host business
may designate other neighbor-
ing businesses whose owners or
employees may also participate
in order to generate a reason-
able number of students for the
school.
-To be considered, the ABC
school must comply with the


constitutional class size require-
ments and have enough stu-
dents in attendance to support
the educational program.
Parents of the enrolled students
would be responsible for provid-
ing transportation to and from
the school for their children.
Within an ABC school, par-
ents have the opportunity to
spend more time with their chil-
dren during the commute
together to school each day and
some parents may choose to
serve as volunteers in the class-
room based on its proximity to
their work area.
If your business is interested
in submitting a proposal for this
program or in finding out more
about this program, please con-
tact Michael L. Johnson,
District ABC Program Liaison,
at 674-8734, extension 225.

Local students compete in



WFEC Youth Tour contest


Gulf Coast Electric
Cooperative recently held its
annual Washington, D. C.
Youth Tour Contest at the
Honeyville Community Center
in WewahitchkA.
Each year, the Cooperative
sponsors the contest for high
school juniors whose parents or
guardians are -members of Gulf
Coast Electric. Contestants are
interviewed by a panel of three
judges from the electric cooper-
ative industry and two winners
are chosen to travel on an all-
expenses-paid trip to
Washington, D. C. in June,
where they join other eleventh-
grade students from all over the
United States to tour our
nation's capitol.
Local civic organizations and
high schools play an important
role in the contest, as they nom-
inate the students who vie for
the trip. This year's contest-
ants were: Rebecca Barnes,
representing the Wewahitchka
Woman's Club; Kalyn Bidwell,
representing the Overstreet
Volunteer Fire Department;
Jacob Causey, representing the
Greenhead Volunteer Fire
Department; Jennifer Clayton,
representing the Wewahitchka
Volunteer Fire Department;
Alex Hardin, representing
Wewahitchka Ambulance
Service; Cassidy Hitt, repre-
senting Altha Public School;
Jessica Husband, representing
the White City Volunteer Fire
Department; Warren
McDonald, representing the

This year's winners are
Keeli Tritz and Kayla Yon.
Alternate is Claire Ziewitz.
In addition to the
Washington, D. C. trip, Gulf
Coast Electric takes all of the
students nominated to compete
in the contest on a two-day trip.
to Tallahassee. There they tour


various sites in Tallahassee with
other eleventh-grade partici-
pants representing electric
cooperatives across the state.
Leigh Little will travel with
GCEC's Youth Tour contest-
ants to Tallahassee. Leigh is
the daughter of Gulf Coast
Electric Cooperative Employee
Charlie Little, and as a child of
a Cooperative employee, is
ineligible to compete in the con-
test. Instead, she is competing
in a statewide essay contest for
a chance to, go on the
Washington, D. C. Youth Tour
trip.
"The Youth Tour Contest is
a great opportunity for us to
reward local students for being
outstanding leaders in their
communities," GCEC
Supervisor of Marketing and
Member Services Kristin
Douglas said.
The Washington, D. C.
Youth Tour Program has been
in existence since 1957 when


co-ops sent students to
Washington, D. C. to work dur-
ing the summer. By 1964, the
program was catching on, and
the National Rural Electric
Cooperative Association began
to coordinate the efforts of the
co-ops. Since then, thousands
of young people have experi-
enced this once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity to visit our nation's
capitol and learn about our gov-
ernment.
Gulf Coast Electric
Cooperative is part of the
Touchstone Energy@ national
alliance of local, consumer-
owned electric cooperatives
providing high standards of
service to customers large and
small. GCEC serves approxi-
mately 20,500 meters in Bay,
Calhoun, Gulf, Jackson, Walton
and Washington counties and in
the municipalities of
Wewahitchka, Ebro, White
City, Lynn Haven, Fountain
and Southport.

Failure is part of life.
Everyone messes up at some
time or another. Everyone
comes up short. Everyone has
his or her embarrassments.
But what has failure got to do
with Palm Sunday.
Palm Sunday is the celebra-
tion of Jesus victorious entry
into Jerusalem. Children were
spreading garments at the feet
of his donkey, palm branches
were laid before Him, joyous
voices were crying, "Hosanna!
Blessed is he who comes in the
name of the Lord." You could
feel the anticipation of the
crowd.
They greeted Jesus as a
deliverer, not from sin, but from
the power of Rome. Here came
their new King, the one who
would lead them to victory over
their despised enemy. So Jesus
was accompanied by a jubilant
parade of admirers, disciples
and well-wishers as he made his
way into the Holy city. It was a
day of victory, but that is only
one parade.
The second parade is held a
few days later as Jesus makes
that long walk up a hill called
Golgotha. The place of the
skull. The first parade smaked
of victory. The second one
smakes of defeat. This time
there are no hosannas. The
women who follow Jesus are
weeping. The eery sound of
wailing is heard. Faces are grim
and fear reigns..
The crowds had been given a
choice between releasing a ter-
rorist, Barrabbas, and releasing
their Kirig, Jesus. They chose
Barrabbas. If there was any
redeeming quality in this sec-
ond parade, no one could see it.
Successful people under-
stand that anyone who
attempts, to do anything signifi-
cant in life is going to mess up


and don't let setbacks defeat
them. Most people have at
least five failures before finding
their niche, they learned not to
take failure as the last word.
They learn to reload and get
ready to shoot again. The ques-
tion to ask is not whether you
are a success or a failure, but
whether you are a learner or a
non-learner.
Two parades. On had all the
earmarks of a success; the other
all the earmarks of total failure.
It all goes to prove that the line
between success and failure is
difficult to draw. What is suc-
cess? What is failure? What is
weakness? What is strength?
Remember Paul's famous boats
in I Cor. 2? Rather than boast-
ing about his strengths he
boasts about his weakness. As
a centerpiece of his boasting he
writes: "....a thorn was given
me in the flesh.....to keep me
from being too elated. Three
times I besought the Lord about
this, that it should leave me, but
he said to me, My grace is suffi-
cient for you, for my power is
made perfect in weakness."
Look at Jesus on the cross in all
His fleshly weakness, everyone
could only see defeat, weak-
ness, death.

But then on the third day
the parade that had failure writ-
ten all over it turned into God's
victory over sin, death, hell and
the grave. The bloody walk up
Golgotha's hill walked right
through the rolled away stone
door of an empty tomb. For
many others vindication takes
much longer. Do you have a
failure, some embarrassment,
some secret shame? God's
power is made perfect in weak-
ness. Rather than letting that
failure defeat you, why not turn
it over to God? Let is become a
victory, then march tri-
umphantly into eternity with
our Lord.

our sincere appreciation to all
who joined with us during the
unexpected and tragic loss of
our beloved wife, mother, maw-
maw, and sister.
To all our family and friends,
thank you for the prayers, food,
phone calls, visits, cards, flow-
ers, contributions, and expres-
sions of sympathy. These are
the reasons why Dorene loved
this community. A special
thanks goes to Greg Duggar,
you have been our rock.
Without your help with food
and house care, we would have
been even more lost. To pas-
tors David Goodman and Paul
Smith, thank you so much for
your prayers and support dur-
ing our many difficult times,
they were greatly needed.
Thank you also for the beauti-
ful, well spoken service. Thank
you Parramore's Too staff for
the wonderful lunch for the
family, and to Rivertown
Church for the use of your facil-
ities;: .
Dorene served this area for
28 years in the restaurant busi-
ness, and she enjoyed every
minute of it. She never met a
stranger, and each customer
was met with a big smile. We
all know that big smile will be
dearly missed.
In closing, please accept our
sincere heartfelt appreciation
from our family to yours and
may God bless each and every-
one of you. The family has
opened a Memorial Fund in
memory of Dorene.
Contributions can be made at

Someone said years
ago: "An adult who
ceases after youth to
unlearn and relearn
his facts, and to
reconsider his
opinions, is like a
Tim Adams blind-folded person
Funeralecor walking into a familiar
room where someone
has moved the
furniture."
Life changes! When we were children it
seemed like five years elapsed between
Christmas and the Fourth of July. Today
we can scarcely turn around until another
year has passed. This is a case of
relearning the facts. It is not that Christmas
is of any less importance to us, but that
each day, each hour has more value to us,
and we are more concerned with the
activities of the present than the months of
the future.
The happiest of all people are those who
say: There just aren't enough hours in the
day." It is a way of saying "I failed to do
all the wonderful and exciting things today I
wanted to do."
OUR THOUGHT TO REMEMBER:
Break time into bits, and enjoy every
morsel to its fullest.

The County Record, MARCH 12, 2008, Pago 11


Hospital tackling cash flow issues, tight finances






Join staff in 40 day prayer vigil


BY RON GILLIARD
Hospital Administrator

Calhoun-Liberty Hospital
has been doing great recently in
several key areas. Most of last
year we averaged only five
patients each day in the hospi-
tal and had only 37 admissions
each month.
We now average 10 patients
per day and 74 admissions per
month. My math is not all that
great, but I think that's a dou-
bling of our census and admis-
sions! Ten patients per day
may not sound like many, but to
us it's significant and means
increased revenue. We see
these numbers only increasing
in the future.
We're very proud of these
numbers since it means more
and more of you are willing to
"use" our services. By the way,
our lab, radiology, and respira-
tory therapy all did a record
number of procedures in
January.
Unfortunately, all of this pos-
itive news, is overshadowed by
some'bad news. Despite our
best efforts, and our staff is
working extremely hard, we are
facing a temporary "cash flow"
issue. I know most businesses
can appreciate this situation.
This is due mainly to some
significant increases in cost
areas such as our malpractice
insurance and health insurance
for our staff. Yes, we are a busi-
ness and have a lot of the same
costs as any business. For
example, our utilities are up the
same as yours. We've had other
big cost increases as well.
More of a cause however, is
the slow payment from
Medicare, Medicaid and com-
mercial insurance companies.
We are doing lots of work but
are slow in getting paid for it.
Also, many patients we serve,
unfortunately, don't pay any-
thing. However, we continue to
see all that come for care.
We may not do the best job
of "billing and collecting" for
what we do, but we are very
dependent on these "third party
payors" to stay viable. Lately,
very poor payments coupled

with the increased expenses
have created a financial chal-
lenge.
Medicare is an especially
critical part of our total opera-
tions as a hospital. Over 50% of
our patients are Medicare ben-
eficiaries and if we don't get
paid timely by Medicare, it's a
real problem for us. Well, late-
ly it has been a REAL big prob-
lem.
Medicare barely pays
enough to cover the cost of pro-
viding the care. Medicaid does
not.
All of this has resulted,
again, in a very tight financial
situation for us. We're making
some changes and tough deci-
sions to address this. In the
process, it makes for a stressful
and difficult environment.
To help address this, a staff
member came to me and asked
if we could conduct a prayer
vigil for 40 days and ask the
Good Lord to help our hospital
during these difficult times. Of
course, forty days is a signifi-
cant issue for several reasons in
the Bible.
Orville Eby, our Radiology
Manager, is the staff member
that suggested we do this. We
started a few days ago and have
had a great attendance of our
staff and others.
We meet in the hospital
Dining Hall at 800 A.M.
Anyone is invited and a lot of
staff is participating. Some of
our Board members have also


check to Mossy Pond VFD at
7128 NW Porter Grade Road,
Altha, Fl 32421. Remember,
it's tax time and you can use it
for your taxes. To make a dona-
tion, call Linda Williams at
762-9295 or Vada at 762-5106.
I. know things are getting
tight gas is getting so high we
might need to invest in a horse
and buggy to get where we
want to go, but the fire depart-
ment only gets so much money
per year and as a life saving
place you need to stretch a little
and get them going.
Remember to take care of
your children and spouse, that
is where love begins they are
with you for eternity and you
would hate for them to nag that
long.

Torreya Garden Club members


learn about attracting butterflies


BY AILEEN MCQUAGGE
"Plant them and they will
come!" Yes, choose plants that
attract butterflies, and you will
soon see a levy of these beauti-
ful, graceful creatures fluttering
happily among your colorful
flowers.
Torreya Garden Club mem-
bers waited eagerly to learn
from Area President of the
North American Butterfly
Association and also of the local
chapter Mr. Bill Boothe from
Bristol, guest speaker at the
Club's meeting Monday, March
3, 2008, at the County
Extension Building. Pres.
Sandra Parrish presided.
Following opening cere-
monies, Vice President Doris
Traylor presented Mr. Bill
Boothe. He was accompanied
by his lovely wife Marcia.
Armed with a fabulous video
and vast knowledge of butter-
flies, Mr. Boothe gave a "crash"
course in setting up several but-
terfly "cafes" among existing
flower beds. Of course, you
may set up one huge "cafe," but
it's nice to have several gather-
ing spots for their "dining"
pleasure.
Here are the guidelines: (1)
Learn which butterfly species
occur iq your area, (2) Find out
what host plants are used by
the caterpillars of those butter-
flies, (3) Plant both nectar (for
adult butterflies) and larval (for
caterpillars) plants for each
species, (4) Plant nectar plants
that will bloom all year, (5)
Select wide flat flowers such as
asters. Avoid greenish-blue and
bluish-green flowers and dou-
ble-flowering ones, (6)
Incorporate with plants already
existing there (7) Native


species are preferred, but it's
acceptable to try to lure some
exotic species, (8) Select sunny
spots that offer butterflies pro-
tection from the wind, (9)
Provide basking and puddling
areas, and (10) Do NOT use
Pesticides. [He discussed all
these guidelines thoroughly -
but may have to check what
species are here, basking, and
puddling. We can call him if we
have questions.]
The video was fascinating -
seeing all those varieties of but-
terflies feeding and fluttering
about among the flowers. Mr.
Boothe is a walking encyclope-
dia on butterflies. We loved the
program. Certainly, many club
members will set up butterfly
"cafes" in their yards. Thank
you, Mr. Boothe.
Alice Williford's devotion
was inspiring, "...love that 8
o'clock Monday morning.
Must be doing something right!
This day and this life are God's
gifts to us so give thanks and be
joyful always."
Hosts Alice, Connie, and
James Williford served the
refreshments in true Irish style
-they went green from the table
decoration to the delicious foods
- including "yummy" key lime
pie to green punch. We enjoyed
every bite. You three make a
good team, Alice, Connie, and
James.
Pres. Parrish reminded
members to pick up their dog-
wood seedlings.
Doris Traylor announced
that March 30th is National
Doctors Day. The members
decided to send a floral arrange-
ment to all the local doctor's
office.
Sandra thanked Mr. Boothe


for his wonderful program, the
hosts for their tasty refresh-
ments, and everyone who
attended.


The next meeting will be
Monday, April 7, 2008, at the
County Extension Building.


Rain, rain, go away...

Folks were singing that old tune last week as heavy
rains soaked the area. Blountstown Fire Chief Ben Hall
captured this scene at the corner of Theresa Terrace and
Hwy. 71 one morning after a night of severe storms.
