THE STATE OF HEALTHCARE


New ambulance r

service receives

excellent rating


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
What is the state of
healthcare in Calhoun
County? That's a question
many residents are asking in
light of so many recent
changes in this area. This
week, The County Record
begins a three-part series on
this topic. beginning with the
local ambulance service.
Just over a month after
the Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital Association took
over the ambulance service
after Emergystat pulled out
of the community, great
strides have been made in
emergency medical care.
"It's gone better than I
predicted." says new EMS
Director Phillp Hill, Jr. "I


knew it
would go
good because
of the staff,
but as
smooth as
everything
has been
running, it's
just phenom-
enal."


exited the vehicle with some-
thing shiny in his hand that
she feared was a firearm. He
approached the driver's side of
Holcomb's car and, began hit-
ting her window.
"She lived just a short dis-
tance away," says Maj.
Conyers. "She sped off to her
house and her husband,
Royce, was at home. The sus-
pects turned around and left."
The Holcombs immediate-


ly called authorities who
began a search for the sus-
pects with assistance from
neighboring counties. At press
time, they had not been locat-
ed.
"We are still investigating
with help from the Leonr
County Sheriff's Office," Maj.
Conyers reports.
Anyone with information
on this case is urged to call the
Sheriff's Office at 643-2235.


The Calhoun County EMS crew includes (from letl) Mike Weathers, Jody
Hoagland, Director Phillip Hill Jr, Jamie Shuler, and Mike Wiggins. There are
eight additional full time employees on staff, along with six part-timers.


State
inspectors put their stamp of
approval on the ambulance
service Friday when they
issued an excellent rating.
'These citizens should be
proud of your staff and of this
service." the inspector wrote
in his report after noting how
clean and well stocked the
units were.
Hill says one of the
biggest concerns he has


heard from area residents is
their fear of calling for an
ambulance and being taken
to a hospital that isn't their
first choice.'
"If you call us, we're
going to transport you to the
most appropriate place capa-
ble of handing your prob-
lem," Hill assures citizens.
"If your cardiologist is at
Bay Medical, we're going to


take you to Bay Medical so
you can be in the facility
where your doctor works."
Another area of concern
many residents have
expressed is the fear they
will have to be airlifted to a
hospital, rather than being
taken by ambulance.

ARREST


Man is


accused


of threats


to officials
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A Bristol man landed
behind bars accused of threat-
ening two local officials.
Arrested was Edward Neal
"Bully" Dekle, 71, charged
with aggravated assault with a
deadly weapon.
According to the Liberty
County Sheriff's Office, Road
Superintendent Jim Shuler
contacted Major Donnie
Conyers at 11:25 a.m. last
Tuesday to report he and
County Commissioner Albert
Butcher were standing ,in a
ditch along County Road' 270
discussing road issues when
Dekle approached in a car,
entered the ditch and drove
directly toward them. Shuler
said he and Butcher both had
to get out of the way to avoid
being struck.
Shuler alleged Dekle then
put the vehicle in reverse and
backed up to the men. Shuler
said he shouted, "You could
have hit somebody!" He
alleged Dekle replied, "I was
trying to hit both you sons of
[expletive]! If you come out on
Boykin Road again, I got a 12
gauge shotgun and you can get
you some of that."
When questioned by Maj.
Conyers, Dekle reportedly
admitted to his actions. He was
taken into custody Friday.

Boyd, stakeholders testify



about water sharing issue


WASHINGTON, D.C.-
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida) testified last
Tuesday before the
Subcommittee on Water
Resources and Environment
regarding the Apalachicola-
Chattahoochee-Flint (ACF)
water sharing issue and the
immediate need for the three
states-Florida, Georgia, and
Alabama-to revive tri-state
discussions and develop a
responsible and workable solu-
tion to address the region's
water needs.
"The federal government
will keep pressure on the three
states to renew tri-state negoti-
ations," said Congressman
Boyd. "Today's congressional

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.


"The federal government will keep pressure
on the three states to renew tri-state negotia-


tions."


file of this issue, and it is my
hope that this will be the first of
many more hearings and dis-
cussions on water supply plan-
ning in the southeast."
During his testimony,
Congressman Boyd outlined
the following key points that he
encouraged the three states to
include in a transparent and
collaborative process:
V Use independent and local
experts to determine the water
flows that the Apalachicola
River and Bay need to maintain
their productivity;
V Set limits on water use
within the Tri-State Basin (For
example, cap the water use to
ensure that the river flow
requirements can be met.);
V Assess the water conser-
vation potential among all users
in the basin-agricultural,
municipal, and industrial-and
determine the most cost-effec-
tive investments and who will
pay for them; and
V Embody these agree-
ments in a durable, Tri-State
Compact with strong enforce-
ment mechanisms.
At the hearing,
Congressman Boyd also point-
ed out that over the past 35
years the state of Florida has
been ahead of the game when it
comes to water supply planning
through the development of a
long term, statewide water
management strategy. In 1972,
the state of Florida created five
water management districts
that were given broad statutory
authority and were charged


-Congressman Allen Boyd

with developing regional water
supply plans, amongst other
things. In stark contrast, the
state of Georgia has allowed for
unbridled development with lit-
tle to no thought of its increased
water needs until recently.
"In order for us to successful-
ly and responsibly address the
water sharing issue, we must
look at the big picture and tack-
le both our short term and long
term problems," Boyd stated.
"In the short term, we must
reach a tri-state agreement with
strong enforcement measures so
that our immediate need for
fresh water can be addressed.
In the long term, states must
plan for their continuing water
supply needs, which Georgia
has failed to do."
Kevin Begos, the Executive
Director of the Franklin County
Oyster & Seafood Task Force
and a member of the
Apalachicola River Riparian
County Stakeholders Coalition,
also testified before the
Subcommittee on Water
Resources and Environment.
Begos was joined by members
of the Apalachicola River
Riparian County Stakeholders
Coalition: Joseph (Smokey)
Parrish, Franklin County
Commissioner; Dave McLain,
Coordinator of the Apalachicola
River Riparian County
Stakeholders Coalition and
Senior Policy Director of the
Apalachicola Riverkeepers; and
Chad Taylor, one of the repre-
sentatives from Jackson County
on the Riparian Coalition.


Opportunity Florida and
Three Rivers Housing
Foundation announced
today that their Workforce
Housing program has been
moving along successfully. A
large number of applications
from home buyers have been
received and several local
buyers are well on their way
to home ownership. The pro-
gram is directed at the eight-
county area served by.
Opportunity Florida,
Calhoun, Franklin,
Gadsden, Gulf, Holmes,
Jackson, Liberty and
Washington.
Currently, two homes are
under construction and six
buyers are meeting with the
builders and picking out
plans. This is a great return
on the number of applica-
tions received.
, "We are extremely
pleased with the response so
far and are eagerly awaiting
the completion of our first
house in hopes that it will
create more interest in the
communities," said Gary
Clark, Opportunity Florida
Board Chairman.
The program's goal is to
connect residents in the
* eight county region to new
programs for affordable and
workforce housing. The
home ownership programs
originate with many govern-
'i mental agencies, such as
USDA Rural Development,
the Florida Housing Finance


Corporation and the Federal
Home Loan Bank of
Atlanta. Qualified buyers
will be able to receive sub-
stantial down payment
grants as well as closing cost
assistance and a mortgage
interest rate subsidy. The
potential buyers are
required to participate in a
home ownership education
program. The homes will be
built to meet energy efficien-
cy standards and will also

Awning grant available

to downtown businesses


Several downtown business
and property owners have truly
stepped up to the plate in the
effort to revitalize the Main
Street historic district. To show
appreciation for their efforts,
the Blountstown Main Street
design committee is developing
an awning grant program.
As depicted in the downtown
artist renderings Main Street
unveiled last year, awnings in
the downtown color scheme -
greatly enhance the appearance
of downtown. And when your
town looks nice, tourists stop
and spend money. As we all
know, Blountstown is along a
heavily traveled route to the
beaches. In addition, with the
opening of the Greenway and
increased marketing of the
Panhandle Pioneer Settlement,
Blountstown is becoming a des-
tination. Why not attract
tourists to downtown?

grant program, call Kelli

Help for stuttering


available at library


Parents .eagerly anticipate
the moment when their child
first begins to talk. But for
some parents, it is a time of
anxiety because their child
struggles to get words out.
As many as five percent of
all preschoolers nationwide
have repetitions and prolonga-
tions of sounds severe enough to
be of concern to their parents.
A DVD in English and Spanish,
Stuttering and Your Child:
Help for Parents, helps parents
detect stuttering and take
action toward helping their
child and is available at the
Calhoun County Public Library
in Blountstown, at the Hugh
Creek Park Public Library in
Blountstown, at the Altha
Public Library in Altha, at the
Sheltons Park Public Library in
Alta, and at the Kinard Park
Public Library in Kinard.
Produced by the nonprofit
Stuttering Foundation, the film
describes what kinds of stutter-
ing young children may exhibit,
how parents can help at home,
and the role of a speech pathol-
ogist in evaluating and treating
children who stutter.
"Stuttering typically begins
between the ages of two and
five," says Barry Guitar, Ph.D.,
professor and Chair of
Communication Sciences at the
University of Vermont in
Burlington. "It may begin grad-
ually or suddenly, and many of
these children outgrow their
disfluencies naturally. However,
if a child continues to stutter for
several months, or appears to
be frustrated by it, parents
should seek assistance."
Guitar appears in the video
with four other nationally rec-
ognized experts in stuttering:
Peter Ramig, Ph.D., of the
University of Colorado at
Boulder, Diane Hill, M.A., of
Northwestern University,
Patricia Zebrowski, Ph.D., of
the University of Iowa, and
Kristin Chmela, M.A., also of
Northwestern University.


These experts address com-
mon concerns that parents have
about their child, such as how to
help the child at home and
whether to seek the advice of a
speech pathologist.
Strategies parents can use to
help reduce stuttering are given
throughout the tape and include
reducing the number of ques-
tions they ask the child, focus-
ing on taking turns during con-
versations, and making time to
read or talk with the child in a
relaxed manner.
"Parents are relieved to dis-
cover that they are not alone
and that other parents share
their concerns," says speech
pathologist Kristin Chmela.
"Stuttering remains a mys-
tery to most people," notes Jane
Fraser, president of the
Stuttering Foundation.
"Watching a young child strug-
gle to speak can be devastating.
This DVD is designed to reas-
sure parents and families that
many preschoolers stutter, that
they can be helped, and how
parents play a vital role in this
process."

inning lead in the first inning.

hit a double to right field. But a
great relay throw from right
fielder Josh Warner to second

tagged the runner out and
extinguished Liberty County's
scoring threat.
However, they did put up
the first run of the game in the

half of the second inning. With a

error by the catcher. Cale

by James Baker and

On Monday, March 10,
Blountstown High School's stu-
dent government presented a

tured many comical skits, a live
performance from a local band,

Mr. Ron Mears served as a
motivational speaker. The pres-
entation was a huge success
and seemed to relieve students'
stress and tension related to the
FCAT. This prepared the stu-
dents to relax and rock the
FCAT!
A note from SGA-SGA
would like to thank all the sen-
iors and the teachers who
helped with this concert! We
had a great time and appreciate

Good ol' fashioned Easter egg hunt

Little ones from all over the community gathered on the lawn at the Blountstown First United Methodist
Church Sunday afternoon for an old fashioned Easter egg hunt. After gathering baskets of eggs, they
enjoyed some food and fun inside the fellowship hall. Churches all across the county will be celebrating
the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, with Easter services this Sunday.,




Arrow of TRuth

by Rev. R. W Waterman


Christ is alive and you can know Him


Matthew 28:9
The Bible tells us of two
women who found out Jesus is.
alive for themselves. One was
Mary Magdalene and the other
Mary.
They came to the garden
tomb early in the morning.
They were astonished and
frightened to find angels there.
One angel said, "Don't be afraid
I know why you've come.
You've come seeking your Lord.
He isn't here. He has risen
from the dead as He said He
would. Come inside and you
may see for yourself the place
where He lay." They ran from
the tomb with joy, mixed with
fear, to tell the disciples.
While they were going, Jesus
met them and greeted them.
They fell at His feet to worship
the risen Savior. They came to
the tomb that morning con-
vinced that Jesus was dead.
They had seen him crucified.
They saw them take Him from
the cross. They saw Him
placed in the tomb. But they
left the tomb that morning
without any doubt Christ was
alive.
They were convinced
because they saw the empty
tomb (v.6). What is the expla-
nation of that empty tomb?
The Roman soldiers explained
it by a lie. When Christ had
been placed in the tomb, the
priest went to Pilate, the
Roman governor, to have the
tomb guarded. Pilate gave them
their soldiers and they were
placed on guard at the tomb,
but early in the morning, sud-
denly there appeared the angels
who cast a white supernatural
light about them.
The soldiers were terrified
and they fainted dead away.
The Bible says that they
"....behurried into Jerusalem to
tell the priests what had hap-
pened and the priests 'called the
elders together and went into
conference."-
They decided to bribe .the
soldiers with a large sum of
money, to tell everybody that

i *-' 1TTO~


they had fallen asleep and,
while they slept, Jesus' disciples
came and stole his body away.
The soldiers accepted the bribe
and told that lie.
But the record itself exposes
the soldiers' lie. The tomb was
empty, not because the disciples
had stolen Him away, but
because He walked out alive.
He had risen.
They were convinced
because they heard the testimo-
ny of the angels and others (v.
5,6,7). The angels said, "He is
not here; for He is risen. Go
and tell his disciples that He is
risen from the dead." They
knew on the authority of the
angels that He was alive.
There were other witnesses
also. There were the two walk-
ing to Emmaus. After walking
and talking with the man they
met along the way they just had
to pour out their hearts to
someone and He seemed so
understanding. Then they per-
suaded Him to come into the
house and sit at the supper
table with them then asked
Him to give thanks. It was then
He opened their eyes, they saw
Him and knew Him. It was the
Lord!
Then there was John as
spokesman for the disciples.
They were sad because of

n "Believe you can and
These are very difficult
words to believe when
the future looks
impossible. how
Tim Adams unbelievable they may
appear-they are true.
The man who held the
record for running a mile held it for 37
years. 'He is the fastest man alive,"
everyone said. One day a young man by
the name of Roger Bannister broke the
record. He cut almost 11 seconds off the
record, and ran the mile in 4 minutes flat.
Why? Because he believed he could,
Even Bannister's record has been broken -
and it will continue to be broken because
there is always someone who believe he
can do it.
This is true in most every facet of life.
Believe in yourself, your family, your friend
and you will see the records broken through
your faith.

Jesus' death and afraid for their
lives so they got out of sight.
They went to an upper room,
got inside and locked the door.
Then, without the door open-
ing, He appeared in their midst.
It was the happiest, most joyous
moment that any of them had
ever known. They knew He
was alive.
Then Thomas, who didn't
believe, saw Christ, saw the
scars in His hands and the scar
in His side and cried, "My Lord
and my God."
And Paul, in his resurrection
chapter I Cor. 15, says, "and
that He was seen of Cephas,
then of the twelve; after that
He was seen of about five hun-
dred brethren at once; of whom
the greater part remain to the
present, but some are fallen
asleep. After that, he was seen
of James; then of all the
Apostles and, last of all, He was
seen of me also, as one born out
of due time."
What a cloud of witnesses,
all giving testimony to the'fact
that they had seen Him and
knew beyond any doubt that
Christ was alive. How can we
doubt? We can't, if we know
Him as they did.
They were convinced
because they met Him (v. 9 &
10). If they had any doubts
before now they were gone.
They had evidence that could-
n't be denied, they had seen
Him for themselves. .He was
alive, they handled Him, talked
with Him.
Yes, Christ is a real person, a
living person, that you can
know. There is that vital, per-
sonal, wonderful relationship
with the Lord. They met Him
and' you can if you haven't
already.

Fiffia and Smith reign over festivities
Ms. Annie Fiffia and Mr. Robert Smith were crowned Valentine
Sweethearts last month at Parthenon Healthcare of Blountstown.
They reigned over an afternoon of activities which included listening
to and singing old time love songs as they were served delicious
refreshments.


Ambulance cont'd


month, only one patient had to
be airlifted," Hill reports. "The
reason is, we have highly
trained and qualified para-
medics on board that recognize
the time factor on a critical
patient. We can transport in
most cases to Bay County or
Leon County hospitals by 'the
time it takes for a helicopter to
fly over, land, transport the
patient from the ambulance to
the helicopter, then fly back to
their facility. But Lifeflight does
have it's place on critical
patients."
Hill has several goals for
EMS he hopes to see achieved
in the near future.
"One of our goals is to relo-
cate one of the two ambulances
we have in service to the
Clarksville area to reduce the
time it takes getting an ambu-

Lady Tigers
The win put the Tigers in
the semi-finals against 4A
Headland. But it would take
nine innings and another tie-
breaker before BHS edged
their opponent, 7-6, securing
their seat in the championship.
"Allison Jones singled in the
winning run with one out in the
9th," says Coach Johnson.
"Fagen started on second to
begin the inning. Brittany
Griffin grounded out to third,
moving Molly over. Cherie
Hires reached on a bunt with no
throw. Then Allison singled in
Molly to end the game."
Peacock remained on the
mound the entire game, striking
out four and walking one.
Offensively, Hires was 3 for
5, Jones was 2 for 5, Davis was
2 for 4, and Williams was 1 for
4. Peacock, Doyal, Griffin and


lance to the west side of the
Chipola River," he notes.
"We're also looking at adding
more advanced technological
equipment for such medical
problems as congestive heart
failure. We are looking at CPAP
equipment which will reduce
the stay in a hospital facility by
three to four days. This equip-
ment uses positive pressure to
expel the fluid out of the
patient's lungs."
Hill points out that the
ambulance service working
under the same umbrella as
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital defi-
nitely has it's advantages.
"Working hand in hand with
the nurses, continuity of care is
followed through."
Our series on the state of
healthcare in Calhoun County
continues next week.

cont'd
Fagen each had a single.
In the end, the Alabama
tournament came down to two
Northwest Florida teams as the
Lady Tigers went up against
Port St. Joe. After a battle, the
Lady Sharks came out on top,
4-1.
Griffin took the loss on the
mound, striking out two batters,
walking one, and allowing five
hits.
Fagen, Peacock, Hires, and
Doyal provided a single a piece.
The Lady Tigers are now
10-4 overall and 3-1 in the dis-
trict. They travel to Sneads
Thursday (J.V at 4 p.m., varsi-
ty at 6 p.m.) and will host
Franklin County Friday in a
varsity only game at 5 p.m. The
girls will be in Liberty County
Monday. Game time is 4 p.m.
for J.V. and 6 p.m. for varsity.
