According to the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Office, Dep.

Street in Altha in response to a
call about a domestic distur-
bance. They were met on the
front porch by Amy Clemmons
who was holding her upper left
arm that was bleeding profuse-
ly. When authorities asked her
what happened, she reportedly
responded that she had fallen.
However, the woman who
phoned in the complaint
approached and advised
Clemmons had come to her
residence stating she had been
stabbed by Yon.

Historic Hosford church restored;

available for weddings and events

The pews were filled at the historic Wesleyan Methodist- Church in
Hosford Saturday morning for the dedication, of the restored sanctu-
ary. Built in 1901 by Robert Flournoy Hosford, the great-great-grand-
father of Liberty County Judge Ken Hosford, the church closed in
1991.
Almost two years ago, a $450,000 Florida historic preservation
grant paved the way for the renovation. project. Much of the church's
original heart pine and cypress boards were used and the 19th-cen-
tury bell and original altar were restored.
Under the county's management, the church will be used for com-
munity events, as well as weddings and funerals.

..... -O THE4EDITOR


.Dear Editor:
I want to thank all who had-
a working part in the 100th
year celebration anniversary of.
the Calhoun County Schools.
Those of us who came from
California, South Florida,
Mississippi, and Georgia and
other points out of town thor-
oughly enjoyed seeing each
other after 40, 50, or more
years.
We were, however, disap-
pointed with the poor atten-
dance of the local alumni.
We all hope to return in
October for the Dinner Theater
and look forward to seeing
many of our friends and class-
mates at that time.
Fondly,
Beth McDonald Lucas

Letter to the Editor:
I attended the Pioneer
Settlement "Battle of the Grill
Chefs" on Saturday, March 15,
2008 as I was invited to do so in
The County Record's March
12, 20.08 edition. In this edi-
tion, it was stated that plates
could be purchased at $6.00
each and that they could be
ordered in advance, but it was
not stated that it was mandato-
ry to do so nor did the card-


board sign pasted over the Goat
Day permanent sign at Hwy 20
mention mandatory pre-order-
ing.
However, when I and my
three young granddaughters
approached a prominent volun-
teer about 11:15am (after
being at the settlement since
9:00am as we accompanied a
volunteer) and asked to pur-
chase plates, we were told that
we could not purchase plates
until "all their preorders had
been filled, but that there
would be enough food to go
around and we could purchase
one later."
My mother, June Clemons,
and my grandmother, Mrs.
Mary Rollins, arrived around
12:00 noon and were told the
same thing by another promi-
nent volunteer. Well, my first
thought then and now is, if
there was enough food to go
around, why could we not pur-
chase a plate then?
My second thought was why
was it not made clear that one
had to pre-order?
My third thought is this:
Why were we penalized for
being supportive by spending

Celebration to honor



Bessie Wynn's 100th


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor

Spend any time with
Bessie Wynn of Blountstown
and you'd never guess she
has lived a century.
This woman, with beauti-
ful skin that doesn't give a
hint to her age, will be hon-
ored on her 100th birthday
with a celebration Saturday,
March 29, at 6 p.m. at the
W.T. Neal Civic Center.
Sitting on the soft of her
Boyd Street home, Bessie
digs through a bag of
Cheerios. In front of her on
the coffee table is a box of
chocolates, each one smashed
so the insides are revealed.
As it turns out, Bessie isn't a
fan of nuts.
"When boys would give us
Valentine candy, she would go
through and mash for the
rits," says her daughter
Catherine. "You'd open your
candy and it would be all
mashed up."
Catherine, along with
Bessie's other two daughters,
Jimmie Ola and Laura, have
plenty of stories about being
raised by Bessie.
"She loved everybody,"
says Laura. "We never went
anywhere unless someone


else's kids went with us."
Jimmie Ola isn't surprised
her mom has lived to see 100.
"I think a lot of it has to do
with her diet," she remarks.
"We always ate good food.
We didn't eat a lot of pork, it
was more fish and chicken.
And she didn't drink or
smoke."
Bessie is known as an out-
standing seamstress with her
own personal style. "She's
always dressed," says
Catherine. "Right now, she
still wears heels." In honor of
her love for hats, women are
asked to wear a hat to her
birthday party.
With three little girls, she
put her talents to good use.
"When we were growing up,
we wouldn't know what we'd
be wearing for Easter," Laura
recalls. "Then we'd wake up
that morning and there would


Relay for Life dance/game

10 pm. ET at Veterans

Bristol.
There will be a DJ, food,
photos, games, and more.


Cover charge is $5 with food,
drinks, games, and photos

tact Kate Hester at 674-2033

BPD now conducting license

and vehicle inspection checks


The Blountstown Police
Department will be conducting
driver license and vehicle
inspection checkpoints during
the week of March 26th -
April, 2008 on Central Avenue,
Main Street, and River Street.
Recognizing the danger pre-
sented to the public by defec-


tive vehicle equipment troopers
will concentrate their efforts on
vehicles being operated with
defects such as bad brakes,
worn tires and defective lighting
equipment. In addition, atten-
tion will be directed to drivers
violating the driver license laws
of Florida.


be three dresses hanging up.
She'd make them overnight."
Bessie also made the first
uniforms for the Mayhaw
School girls .basketball team
and was the club mother for
the Future Homemakers. "I
always loved to sew and I
taught sewing classes," she
says, adding that she also
made jewelry.
When her three daughters
and son, Samuel (who has
since passed away) were
small, Bessie lost her hus-
band, Pastor Samuel Wynn.
She never remarried. Until
the age of 87, she worked
hard supporting her family by
helping others in their homes.
Her clients included Pick and
Alberta Hollinger, along with
Bart and Virginia Knight.
At 85, she began reciting
poetry, performing in a musi-
cal written by Jimmie Ola
that was on stage in New
York, Connecticut, and the
Bahamas.
Bessie is a member of St.
Paul AME Church. In addi-
tion to her three girls, she has
countless grand and great-
grand children.
Any advice on how to
reach 100? Bessie says with-
out hesitation, "Trust in
God."

Many of the clubwomen
ignored their "brown bags" in
order to sample the tempting
display of goodies on the attrac-
tively arranged buffet table. I,
for one, never got back to the

yums!" Hostesses were:
Chairperson Clara McCroan,
Linda Adams, and Tekle

We compliment Clara
McCroan the decorator

"In the seventh inning, with
the score tied 3-3 and one out,
Shaterial Davis got an infield
hit," Coach Johnson remarks.


"She stole second base. Secora
Bell struck out for the second
out of the inning. Molly Fagen
came up and doubled to the left
centerfield fence to drive in
Shaterial. With Kaitlin Peacock
batting, Molly .stole third base.
The catcher threw to third, but
the third baseman was slow get-
ting to the bag, Molly came in
and scored."
Offensively, Molly had a
double with an RBI. Ashley
Whitfield and Brittany Griffin
had ,.a. single ..with .an RBI.
Cherie Hires and Etn Glass

Cats smoke Munroe, 19-0;



and muzzle Marianna, 7-2


BY JIM McINTOSH

MT. PLEASANT, MARCH
18-When the smoke cleared,
the devastation was apparent.
While the U.S. Forest
Service was doing some control
burning in the area last
Tuesday, the Altha Wildcats
were busy with some hot sticks
doing some out of control burn-
ing of the Robert E Munroe
Bobcats' baseball team for 19
runs (off of 19 hits) in 5 innings.
It was the second time this sea-
son the Wildcats had blanked
the Bobcats. (It was 8-0 in
their February 15 game.)
The smoke must have inter-
fered Wildcats' (12-2; 2-0, 2-
2A) vision because it took them
3 innings for their offense to
catch on fire. Or maybe they
traded their aluminum bats for
seasoned heart pine .bats.
Whatever the reason Altha lit
their sticks to begin a 19-hit
barrage. Leadoff batter Josh
McIntosh drew a walk. He
advanced to second on a wild
pitch. Tad Scott smoked, a
grass-scorching single through
the left side of the infield to
plate McIntosh. Noah Byler
drew a walk. Next, Ethan
Byler smoked a 1-1 pitch over
the right centerfield fence' for
his fourth homerun of the sea-
son that scored Scott and Noah.
Jake Edenfield returned a sin-
gle back up the middle. Keith
Kirkpatrick singled to center-
field. After being hit by a pitch,
Cale Chafin loaded the bases
for the Wildcats. Josh Warner
picked up 2 RBIs, when he
slapped a single into right field
that allowed Edenfield and
Kirkpatrick to cross home
plate.
Altha picked up in the fifth
inning adding 9 more runs to
their 6-0 lead. Josh McIntosh
delivered a 1-0 pitch to left field
for a single. Then he stole sec-
ond base. Tad Scott picked up


his second RBI on the day by
singling back through the box to
score McIntosh and Scott
advanced to second on the
shortstop's fielding error. With
one out Ethan Byler walked.
Scott advanced to second on an
error by the second baseman.
Keith Kirkpatrick drew a two-
out walk and the bases were
juiced. Banging his fourth dou-
ble of the season to left center-
field, Cale Chafin scored, Scott,
Ethan, and Kirkpatrick. That
chased Munroe's starting pitch-
er, Parth Patel, from the hill and
the catcher, Ben Young, came
on in relief. It didn't matter
because 4 more Wildcats' runs
would cross the plate. Josh
Warner and Juan Alejos walked
and McIntosh scored them with
his second single of the game to
right field. Scott worked the
count full before drawing a
walk. Noah Byler ripped his
third double of the season to the
fence in left centerfield to plate
McIntosh and Scott.
Mercifully for the Bobcats,
the 10-run rule came into effect
in the fifth inning but not before
Altha had scored 4 more runs
off of 7 singles. Jake Edenfield


got it started with his third sin-
gle of the game to right center-
field. Keith Kirkpatrick fol-
lowed with a single of his own to
left field and Edenfield was
forced out at second. Cale
Chafin slapped the third
straight single of the inning to
right field. With two outs Juan
Alejos loaded the bases with a
single through the left side of
the infield. Josh McIntosh
scored Kirkpatrick with a grass-
burner through the left side.
Tad Scott picked up his eighth
RBI on the season by plating
Chafin with a single to left field.
Noah Byler would wrap up the
scoring frenzy with a single to
the centerfield fence that
brought Alejos and McIntosh
across the dish for runs number
18 and 19.
Ethan Byler (1-0, .000
ERA) picked up his first win of
the season. He pitched 3
innings and faced 13 batters,
striking out 3, surrendering only
2 hits, and issuing just 2 walks.
Josh McIntosh, making his
first relief appearance of the
season, came on in the fourth

,the day and actually planning to
enjoy the picnicking and the
entertainment as the newspa-
per article invited on page 5?
In actuality, I did not see any-
one buying plates and staying to
eat in the public area--I mostly
,saw people come long enough to
pick up their pre-ordered plates
and leave. So, this is the mes-
sage that I received: It is all
about the money. I do under-
stand that the Settlement needs
community funds to operate,
but I also understand that treat-
ing the community decently is a
given also, and, in this instance,
I feel that the Pioneer
Settlement was in bad form.
This being the case, I do not
feel that it would be amiss for
. the Pioneer Settlement to offer
a public apology to the commu-
nity through the newspaper as
that is the forum from which
they issued the invitation and
then did not honor it. In addi-
tion, I feel that the Settlement
should make it absolutely clear
in future public invitations that
pre-ordering is mandatory or it
is first-come, first-serve or they
might start to accumulate more
disgruntled persons within this
community.
At any rate, I went straight
to the Piggly Wiggly deli and
they were glad to serve me and
smiled while they accepted my
money.

Sincerely yours,
Peggy Clemons Frith
Clarksville

Letter to the Editor:
Liberty County has one
chance to get it "right" and pro-
tect the "old Florida" charm
and quality of life that is
unique, and I believe most of us
love and wish to preserve.
I want to thank the Board of
County Commissioners for their
courageous stand in voting 5-0
to not allow BG&E to build the
largest Bio Waste Plant in the
country in Liberty County. For
those of you not at the Hosford
School for the CC meeting,
some of the facts and informa-
tion that formed the basis of the
unanimous decision are:
*500,000 to 1 million gallons
of water use per day (365/7)
*24,000 to 36,000+ gallons
of waste water runoff (365/7)
that in Glen Ferris'
words would be "slightly salty"
but he didn't know how salty;
*Increased diesel emissions-
which are highly carcinogenic -
at the S.R. 20/S.R. 65 intersec-
tion, immediately North of the


Hosford-.school (this on-top of
the fact that Liberty County's
air quality along this same area
ranks in the lowest 71st per-
centile in the State of Florida);
*And finally, Liberty County
would have been the guinea pig
for this type of mill- a fact
admitted by BG&E.
Now I read where we have
another plant. attempting to
open in our county. Some facts
that I believe should be consid-
ered by the taxpayers of
Liberty County;
1. Four of the five industrial
plant sites in Liberty County
are located in the Hosford-
Telogia area, constituting 80%
of the industrial development in
the county;
2. 86% of the industrial tax
revenue is generated by the 4
plants in the Hosford-Telogia
area;
3. Less than 30% of the
industrial tax revenue is
returned to or spent in the
Hosford-Telogia area.
Obviously, the citizens of the
Hosford-Telogia area are doing
way more than their fair share
in generating tax revenue for
Liberty County. IS IT FAIR
TO CONTINUE TO PILE
INDUSTRY ON THIS ONE,
*SMALL AREA AND ITS
RESIDENTS IN A COUNTY
AS LARGE AS LIBERTY? In
other words, should we not in
fairness endeavor to locate
industry in other areas to mini-
mize residential impact?
Besides polluting our fresh
water, another plant on this side
of the county creates several
problems, including: increased
traffic of large trucks, damage
to our highways, and reduced
property values. It is also a
risk to our health and safety.
My mom, Joyce Hosford,
counted the number of "big
trucks" passing in front of her
house on Hwy 65 N; it was 2
trucks every 45 to 50 seconds.
(One truck each way!)
Can we do better? We have
choices, the Apalachee
Economic Development
District Council (which includes
Liberty County) in August
2007, mentions development of
career training academics
somewhere in our district. You
can read the entire document at
http://thearpc.com/srpp/CEDS
Report.pdf. Liberty County is
centrally located in the district
.making it an easy drive for stu-
dents from the other counties.
In reading this report, the only
site I could find in Liberty
County was at Lowry (north of


-Hosford on Hwy.65) and it was
targeted for industrial yet the
other counties have listed multi-
ple sites. The Hosford/Telogia
area has all of the industrial
plants we can sustain! Are
there other areas of the county
that really want this type
growth?
Now is the time to ask our-
selves this question---What do
you want Liberty County to
look like in 30 years? Have vye
decided we are going to be the
industrial county for this region,
(taking other counties garbage -
tires, plastic, etc) lose our
"God's Country" way of life!
Maybe our vision is quality
growth, slow and thoughtful,
not minding that we are the
smallest county in population in
Florida an area that doesn't
allow our air quality to remain
this dirty (and refuses to add to
it). Clean air, clean water, safe
highways, and environmentally
safe and friendly new business-
es, is a vision I believe most of
us would agree to.
Liberty County deserves
better than "waste" industries.
Just because "These Big
Industries" say they are green
does not make it so. We have to
be diligent about our efforts to
bring clean, safe businesses to,
the county while, encouraging
our commissioners to stand firm
while seeking and securing
good, clean employment oppor-
tunities for our citizens.

Respectfully,
Kitte Hosford Carter

To the Editor:
As chairperson of MDA's
Shamrocks Against Dystrophy,
I want to take a moment to
thank businesses and patrons in
the Blountstown area for their
generous participation in our
2008 campaign. I'm delighted
to say that this year's fundrais-
ing efforts were a great success.
Those little green and gold
Shamrocks mobiles sold by
local businesses help support
MDA's vital programs of
research, health care services
and public education right here
in Blountstown and across the
country.
On behalf of all the individu-
als and families coping with
muscle-wasting diseases, I send
a big warm "thank you" to
Blountstown residents you've
certainly put a smile in these
Irish eyes!
Sincerely,
Maureen McGovern

Geometry and Kites
by Cory Baldwin
Mrs. Howell's 6th period
class created kites in relation to
Geometry. There were many
differently colored and geomet-
rically shaped kites that were
shown on windy Bowles Field.
Unfortunately, only about 40%
of the kites flew. This project
has taught the class that Mrs.
Howell CAN be FUN and that
many good learning experi-
ences are performed outside of
the classroom.

Spring Fling
by Harlea Perdue
On Friday, March 21st,
Blountstown High School held
its annual Spring Fling hosted
by SGA. The weather was
favorable for the event, and a
lot of fun was had. Inflatables
were present, as well as DJ,
Micah Jon Martin.
Many students were "mar-
ried" at the Marriages and
Divorces Booth, sponsored by
FBLA, and some paid for their
friends to be thrown into the
local "jail", sponsored by the
French Club. Some of the
teachers were spotted singing
and dancing, and our own Mr.
Barber took a turn on the


obstacle course. Montoya
Garrett, a freshman and Dillon
Burke, a senior, were crowned
2008 Spring Fling Queen and
King. Mrs. McCrone and SGA
would like to thank everyone
for making Spring Fling such a
wonderful event.

Wildcats cont'd


inning. Of the 8 batters he faced,
'McIntosh struck out 2 and sur-
rendered only 2 walks.
As a team, -Altha had a sea-
son-high 19 hits and their
patience at the plate resulted in 9
walks. Conversely, they had sea-
son-low 3 strikeouts. Sixteen of
their 19 runs were earned and
they stranded only 5 base run-
ners.
For the seventh time this sea-
son the Altha Wildcats had run-
ruled an opponent (five times in
five innings and twice in six
innings), Munroe was the fourth
team they had shut out, and, so
far, Munroe is the only team they
have swept with two shutouts.
MARIANNA, MARCH 21-
In this record setting year, the
Wildcats added another mark to
their ledger last Friday night.
For the first time in their base-
ball history, they beat the 3-A
Marianna Bulldogs, 7-2.
Altha (13-2; 2-0, 2-2A)
played what several thought was
their best game of the season.
Defensively, they played error-
less ball for the second time 'this
year. Offensively, the Wildcats
pounded out 14 hits, including 4
doubles and a homerun.
Altha didn't waste any time in
getting on base. Lead off batter
Josh McIntosh began the game
by lining a 0-1 pitch to left field
and he ended up on second base.
(He is currently tied with Tony
Golden for 5 doubles on the sea-
son). With two outs Ethan Byler
reached on a fielding error by the
right fielder and McIntosh scored
on the play.
In the second inning the
Wildcats added another run.
Josh Warner drew a one out
walk. Tony Golden reached on a
fielder's choice but Warner was
forced out at second base. Josh
McIntosh slapped a line drive
down the third base line to score
Golden.
Marianna scored their only
runs of the game and tied it at 2-
2 in their frame of the second
inning.
The Wildcats would go back
on top for good in the fourth
inning with 2 more runs. A
screaming double by Tony
Golden through the right side and
at the Bulldogs' shortstop made
him cover up and call for backup.
Marianna's Ryan Edwards
relieved the Bulldog's starter,
Jeremy Barber (1-1), on the
mound. With two outs Tad Scott
mashed a 0-2 pitch and delivered
it over the lights in left centerfield
for his first homerun of the sea-
son. It gave the Wildcats a 4-2
lead.
Altha made it a 6-2 ballgame
in the sixth inning. Returning to
the line-up after a five-game hia-
tus with a high ankle sprain, Gary
Chew lasered a single off the
pitcher's leg to lead off the inning.


Then he advanced to second on a
wild' pitch. Once again Golden
hammered his second (and team-
tying fifth) double of the game
but Chew was thrown out
attempting to score. That caused
Marianna head coach, Andy
Shelton, to make a pitching
change. Rhyne Elliott relieved
Ryan Edwards. Josh McIntosh
greeted Elliott by ripping a grass-
burning single back through the
box to score Golden. Tad Scott
reached on an infield single and
stole second base. Ethan Byler
drew a two-out walk and Jake
Edenfield plated McIntosh with a
single through the right side of
the infield.
Wanting to make sure that a
grand slam would not tie the
game; Altha posted their final run
in the seventh inning. Keith
Kirkpatrick helped himself by
delivering a bloop single over the
first baseman's head and just
inside the right foul line. He
moved to second on Cale Chafin's
ground out. Then Kirkpatrick
stole third base. With two outs
Tony Golden picked up his ninth
RBI on the season by hitting a
bouncing single off of home plate
that allowed Kirkpatrick to score
and give Altha their thirteenth
win of the season, 7-2.
The Wildcats racked up 14
hits in their 34 plate appearances
while the Bulldogs had only 3 hits
in their 21 at bats.
Keith Kirkpatrick (4-1; 1.00
ERA) turned in his best pitching
performance of his career..
Having thrown 103 pitches in his
fourth complete game,
Kirkpatrick allowed only 3 hits, 2
earned runs, struck out 8 batters,
and he issued 3 walks. He had
command of his curve ball and
mixed his pitches well keeping
the Bulldog batters totally off bal-
ance. Also, Kirkpatrick fielded
his position well in assisting in
putting out 4 would-be base run-
ners and he worked with Josh
McIntosh in picking off Brandon
Gardner at second base.
The leading hitter for the
Wildcats was Tony Golden. He
was 3 for 4 (including two dou-
bles), scored 3 runs and picked
up a RBI. Also, Jake Edenfield
had a 3 for 4 performance as well
as a RBI. Josh McIntosh had 3
hits in his 5 plate appearances,
including his first two-double
game of his career), and he was
credited with 2 RBIs. Tad Scott
went 2 for four (including his first
homer of the year), scored once,
had 2 RBIs, and a stolen base to
his credit. Gary Chew singled in
his 2 at bats. In his 3 plate
appearances Keith Kirkpatrick
singled and stole a base. Noah
Byler went 1 for 4.

It was the first time this year:
U they' had played --the
Bozeman Bucks;
U they had suffered a district
loss;
they had been shutout;
they had struck out 10
times in a game;
U they had only 1 hit in a
game; and
U their pitcher Tad Scott (6-1-
1, 1.34 ERA) had lost.
Altha (13-3; 2-1, 2-2A) only
had five players to reach base in
the game.
With one out in the first
inning, Tad Scott reached on a
throwing error by the third base-
man and advanced to second on
the play. However, a groundout
to end the inning would end his
opportunity to score.
Bozeman (11-0; 5-0, 2-2A)
scored 2 runs off of one hit in the
fourth inning. An error by right
fielder Tony Golden allowed the
leadoff batter to reach. The next
batter doubled to right field to
score the lead runner. A one-out
sacrifice bunt scored the other
run.
Jake Edenfield reached in the
fifth inning after being hit by a
pitch and he advanced to second
on a passed ball. But three con-
secutive strikeouts ended the
inning.
The Bucks padded their lead
in the fifth inning. With 2 outs
Scott hit a batter and then the
next two batters hit back-to-back
doubles. Golden's second error of
the night in the right field allowed
the fourth run to score. A single
plated Bozeman's final run.
In the sixth inning Josh
McIntosh drew a one-out walk.
He moved to second on an errant
pick-off throw by the pitcher.
McIntosh tagged up at second
and moved third on Scott's fly-
out to right field. Noah Byler's
pop Aip to the third baseman
ended the scoring threat.
With one out Jake Edenfield
was issued a walk. Keith
Kirkpatrick followed by hitting a
Texas-league single to left field to
move Edenfield to second base.
With two outs Edenfield stole
third base but Gary Chew struck
out swinging to end the scoring
threat and the game.
Kirkpatrick's single in his 3
plate appearances was the
Wildcats only hit of the game.

Sneads Pirates with fried catfish
fillet plates being served for $6,
including a drink. The last JV

Some years back a close
member of one family was ver-
bally attacked and accused of
a wrongful act. Another family
member knew the deed done
was totally innocent, with no ill
will intended. There had been
a terrible misunderstanding!
Having faced rejection and
possible death at the hand of
the Jews, because He had
healed the impotent man on
the Sabbath and had declared
that God was His Father,
Jesus went to Galilee. His
brothers (children of Joseph
and Mary) misjudged His
motives for remaining there.
They did not understand His
reason for secrecy. Their fail-
ure to understand was
because of their closeness
with the world and their lack of
spiritual sensitivity to God's
plan.

defeat? There may have been

TERMITE SEASON GETS
UNDER WAY
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson is again warning
Florida homeowners that ter-
mite swarming season has
begun and they need to take
steps to protect what is likely
their biggest investment -- their
home. Swarming begins when
the weather starts warming up.
Termites cause millions of dol-
lars in damage to houses in
Florida every year.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services is already receiving
inquiries from homeowners who
have noticed small flying
inspects. These are termites
"swarming," or leaving their
colonies to search for new nest-
ing sites.
Because the insects do their
damage behind walls, many
homeowners don't realize they
have a termite problem until
they see them flying around
their homes. The swarmers are
winged, black inspects about
one-quarter-inch long.
Florida's climate makes it
especially vulnerable to ter-
mites, which are found through-
out the state. Despite this, at
least half of the homes in this
state have no termite protec-
tion.
"The single biggest purchase
most people will make is their
home," Bronson said. "Yet
many homeowners do not
invest in termite, control meas-
ures. Termites can cause signif-
icant damage long before a
homeowner notices sawdust
and other tell-tale signs of an
infestation."
The department regulates
and licenses pest control com-
panies and conducts regular
inspections to ensure the busi-
nesses are adhering to the rules


Stabbing co\
on Smith Street. She was found
with blood running from her
nose and a red swollen area on
her forehead. Upon being ques-
tioned, Yon reportedly stated

Meth lab-
s o; 0 a glass jar with bilayer
liquid; and an empty box of 48
count peudoephedrine pills.
Thea V...Ihnr were taken
intro d'I', for violating their
probation and their two minor
children were removed from
the home and) placed with the
Florida Department of
Children and Families.
Assistant State Attorney
Matt Wilson is pursuing
charges of attempted manufac-
ture of meth, possession of drug
paraphernalia, and child abuse.


and regulations governing pesti-
cides and pest control.
Consumers can contact the
department's Division of
Agricultural Environmental
Services to find out whether a
pest control company is proper-
ly licensed, to find out how
many consumer complaints
have been filed against a partic-
ular business and to learn about
the various types of termite
control contracts.
Most pest control operations
in Florida are licensed and have
the proper training. But there.
are unlicensed companies in
operation, and it is important to
check out any businesses before
signing a contract.
The two types of termites
that are most predominant in
Florida are subterranean ter-
mites that which live in soil and
attack structures from the
ground up, and drywood ter-
mites that can live in wood in a
building and can go undetected
until they cause extensive, visi-
ble damage. Licensed pest
management professionals have
the expertise to inspect build-
ings and treat them to prevent
an infestation or provide treat-
ment when the insects are
found. Termite companies are
now required to clearly tell cus-
tomers if their contract covers
both types of termites.
Consumers can take the fol-
lowing steps to protect their
homes from this destructive
pest:
-- Remove wood piles and
other cellulose sources from
under and next to homes.
-- Have an annual home
inspection by a licensed profes-
sional pest control company.
-- Direct water sources, such
as air conditioner drip lines and
roof downspouts, away from the
structure foundation.
-- When purchasing a home,
carefully check its termite pro-
tection history.
-- Obtain a termite protec-
tion contract and renew it annu-
ally.
Bronson says consumers
should read a termite protec-
tion contract before signing it.
Some contracts only require
that the company retreat a
home if termites are found.
Bronson says it is better to have
a retreat and repair contract
which requires the pest control
business to repair any damage
caused by termites after a home
has been inspected and treated.

BOILED VS. RAW &
ROASTED PEANUTS
A 2007 study in the Journal
of Agricultural and Food
Chemistry reports that boiled
peanuts have. higher levels of
antioxidants than raw and
roasted peanuts. Food scien-
tists at Alabama A & M
University boiled the raw
peanuts for four hours while the
peanuts were still in their shell.
They also dry-roasted raw
peanut kernels and roasted
other raw peanut kernels in oil.
Lab tests on the peanut
extracts show that boiled
peanuts had higher levels of
antioxidants. These disease
fighting phytochemicals may
help prevent cancer, heart dis-
ease, and other chronic condi-
tions. The researchers specu-
late that when peanuts are
boiled in their shell, the peanut
kernel absorbs antioxidants that
are in the peanut shells and
skins.

she and Clemmons got into a
fight and she had stabbed
Clemmons with a knife.
Authorities discovered a bloody
knife in the kitchen beneath the
dish drain, along with a sub-
stantial amount of blood in the
kitchen area with a trail leading
down the hallway into the bath-
room. A man at the home said
he had witnessed the entire
confrontation. He provided a
sworn statement, alleging that
the women began arguing, Yon
slapped Clemmons, a fight
ensued, and Yon stabbed
Clemmons in the left upper
arm with a kitchen knife.
Both women, described by
authorities as extremely intoxi-
cated, were transported to
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital for
treatment.


Calhoun County 4-H members Cassidy and Joshua Odom pose
with their awards at the 2008 West Florida Livestock Show.
Congratulations to this pair for doing an outstanding job represent-
ing Calhoun County at this competition!
