Six people were arrested in
the early morning 'hours
Friday when the Liberty
County Sheriff's Office raided
a crackhouse.
Robert Lee Dondar was
charged with possession of a
controlled substance with
intent to selL. Dale James
Green, Octavious Delton
Barnes, Brenda Carroll, and
Jennifer Pullam were each
charged with possession of
crack cocaine and drug para-
phernalia.. Lorrie Inez
Louketis had those same
charges, along with sale of a
controlled substance.
According to the Liberty
County Sheriff's Offtice, their


narcotics unit served a search
warrant on Donar's residence
at 12111 NW Smith Circle in
Bristol at 3:30 a.m. Louketis,
who was wanted on a warrant
for violating her state proba-
tionl and cocaine charges, and
Carroll, who was being sought
for passing worthless checks,
were found inside the resi-
dence with the other four sus-
pects.
The search turned up an
ink pen in Pullam's purse that
had been altered into a crack
pipe. '11o pill bottles contain-
ing 70 crack cocaine rocks val-
ued around $2000 were dis-
covered in a car parked out-
side the home. Over $500 in
cash was seized from Donar's
bedroom. 'llo crack pipes
were found in a bedroom


where Green and Barnes were
staying.
Once at the Sheriff's Office,
Donar reportedly confessed -
that the large quantity of
cocaine found was his.
During a strip search of
Pullam, Capt. Fannie
Partridge discovered a pill bot-
tle of over 20 large crack rocks
hidden in her vagina. In a
sworn statement, Pullam
advised that Donar gave her
the crack to hide when the
narcotics team wNas searching
the house. She was then
charged with introduction of
contraband into a county
detention facility.
All the suspects remained
behind bars at press time
except Donar who bonded out
later that day.

Jackson County Floridan

The Jackson County
Floridan has graciously allowed
us to run the story they pub-
lished on their Blrst baby of the
new year who is now facing
open heart surgery. Little
Jackson Lee Barfield is the son
of Melissa and Clint Barfield.
Formerly of Altha, Melissa's
maiden name was Barfield and
she happened to marry a
Barfield (no relation). Jackson
is ihe grandson of Gary and
Donna Musgrove and Sudie
Barfield, all of Calhoun County.
Jackson County's first, baby
of the new year seemed fine
when he was born at 4:16 a.m.
on Jan. 1. His mom and dad,
Melissa and Clint Barfield, took
him home with t~o worries.
But weeks later, the life of
little Jackson Lee Barfield
would hang in the balance.
It started when he was about
two weeks old. The raspy sound
he made when he sucked his
bottle worried his parents, and
his mother took him to the doc-
tor. She says he was given some
medication for the wheezing
and sent home.
Three weeks later, with the
raspy sound more pronounced,
he went back to the doctor and
was put on medication for acid
reflux.
At four weeks, it got a little
worse and was happening after
feeding as well. The doctor
upped his dosage.
Melissa kept Clint informed
of the baby's condition while
her husband was away working
at a nuclear power plant in
Vidalia, Ga. The baby's condi-
tion didn' setbettrando: tig


Clint in Vidalia.
"He was making the noise,
and when I stopped to feed him,
he acted like he was choking,"
Mrs. Barfield recalled. "Then
he started rasping continuous-
ly."
The parents took him to an
emergency room in Vidalia.
There, he was admitted to the
hospital on the suspicion that he



ICU unit of its own, sent him by
ambulance to a children's hos-
pital in Savannah, Ga.
The first thought there, his
mother said, wvas that he had
pneumonia. Again, he kept get-
ting worse. Instead of taking the
normal -10-50 breaths per
minute, he was taking 100.
At this point, he was in ICU
on a machine that sent oxygen
and pressure into his nose to
open his lungs and help him
breathe. He was lethargic at
this point, and couldn't cry any-
more, his mother said.
He was put on a ventilator,
and it was first thought that he
had oir inhi hart. But an
the terrifying truth. He was



blood coursing through the
body.

DAy he Va aae byhlcp

Jacksonville. The surgery was
planned for the following
Wednesday, but he was getting
sicker and too weak to undergo
the surgery.
Doctors discovered some-
thing else. He'd been screened
previously for a variety of inlfee-
tions and viruses, but a new test
revealed that he had the "RSV"
virus, his mother said, "which
basically makes the lungs qluit
functioning. "
He had to be taken off the
ventilator and placed on a more
dnaiemachine to oxygrenate

Barfield. She's counting on
their continued prayers going
forward.
"One of the` churches sent a
prayer blanket, and once that
went on him, he started stabiliz-
ing. For once, he wasn't getting
worse, and then gradually he
got a little better and a little
better.
"That blanket hasnQt been
out of contact with his body
since. The nurses were told, 'if
you do anything where you
have to remove the blanket,
make sure some part of it is still
touching him,' she said. "It
was prayer, it was God that
pulled him through and we
have surgery still ahead."
Friends of the family have
set up a fund at Sun'11~ust banks
where donations can be made in
the baby's name to assist the
Barfields as they get through
the coming weeks.
Neither parent has worked
since that emergency room
visit, and while they have insur-
ance, that doesn't pay for
everything.
The Barfields are reluctant
to talk about that aspect of


His mother said he "wNas one
step away" from being put on a
machine that functions for the
heart and lungs.
"That was their last resort to
save him," she said. But then,
he started stabilizing. ..
"He pulled through right
before this was supposed to
happen. They had told us, 'Your
baby is the sickest baby in this
ICU, and it's going to be minute
by minute.' Later they told us
that medically he should not
have made it."
This last scare was happen-
ing just a week ago, but things
have been slowly but steadily
improving since then.
On April 15, Jackson is
scheduled for the open-heart
surgery that his body couldn't
tolerate just a few weeks ago.
Mrs. 'Barfield said she
believes the prayers and sup-
port of family, friends and even
strangers are what helped her
son pull through. Among the
family members she's counting
on are maternal grandparents
Gary and Donna Musgrove and
Sudie Barfield, paternal grand-
parents are Eddie and Legatha

things. Saying they find it awk-
ward to ask for more than the
generous outpouring of emot-
tionall and spiritual support they
have already received, they do
acknowledge when pressed that
the expense of being away from
home without steady paychecks
does takie its toll.
The couple said they're
grateful for the gesture, and are
drawing strength from the com-
munity's continued prayer vigil-

If Tears Could
SBuild A Stairway
If tears` could build a stairway
And memories were a lane
We would walk
right up to Heaven
And bring you back again

No farewell words were spoken
No time to say goodbye
You were gone
before we knew it
And only God knows why

Our hearts still ache in sadness
And secret tears still flows
What it meant to lose you
No one will ever know

But know we
know you want us
To mourn for you no more
Tbremembe sal
Life still has much in store

Since you'll never be forgotten
We pledge to you today ,

Awiti ou h at
Is where you'll always stay

It feels like just yesterday, the
pain will never go away.

We love and miss you both!
Your Mom, Pa y,

Goodyear appears to have made some gains on its:
tire design for intermediate tracks. After particl-
pating in a second Goodyear tire test at Darlington
Raceway last week, Greg Biffle said he believes
Goodyear's engineers have come
up with~ a tire that will alleviate
some of the complaints drivers, in-
cluding Tony Stewairt, voiced after
the Kobalt Tools 500 at Atlanta
Motor Speedway:
"I think they've changed the
sidewall construction some and
se~not necessarily the compound,"
BlFFLE Biffle said during a NASCAR tele-
conference.
"Goodyear is testing and learning just like the
race teams are all the time, and they've just come
up with a better construction that's overall better
than the one they haid, so it just makes sense to
apply that new construction everywhere they go
now.
"They've found an improvement, so certainly
they're going to use it everywhere and you'd expect
them to. We used that tire at a Darlington tire test,
and the fire is great [for Darlington]. It's a little too
soft, a little too much griip for the racetrack, but the
tire drives real, real nice, so I'm pretty excited
about going to Texas with that tire."

Driver seen as top ros ect

when a Cup ride opens up

By RICK( MINTER
Cox News Service

SDavid Stremme, displaced from Chip
Ganassi's Dodge after last season to make
room for Indy racing veteran Dario Franchitti,
is emerging as one of the top "free agents" in
NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series,
Stremme, 30, is spending this season helping
start a second Nationwide Series team for car
owner Rusty Wallace.
Stremnie and his No. 64 team are improving
with each race this year. In the past four starts,
he has had three top-10 finishes, including' a
sixth-place run in his last outing, the Pepsi 300
at Nashville Superspeedway
"We're in a building process at RWI with
this second team," Stremme said. "It's a grow-
ing process, and I'm pretty happy with it."
But competing with NASCAR's elite Cup
drivers is what Stremme really wants to do.
"Rusty and I know together that Sprint Cup
is where I want to be," he said. "There's such a


mix up going on right now that i feellike there
are a lot of good openings coming, up. We'll see
where we end up."
Garage insiders say that at least eight driv-
ers have contracts ending this year, which of-
fers Stremme a chance at several top rides.
"I feel like I'm the first draft choice," he said.
"But I don't want to be someone's short-term
fix. Whatever we do, we want to work on some-
thing long term.
"I'm in a financial situation where I don't
have to just jump in a car. I want to race, but I
want to make sure it's a competitive situation
where everybody's working in the same direc-
tion. When we're talking to people, it's not
about money; it's about what are we doing for
the future."
Stremme lost his previous ride after several
open-wheel drivers came to NASCAR. Before
that, the rage was American Speed
Association drivers like Stremme. But the
open-wheel drivers have struggled this year
and many of the ASA graduates have washed
out. Stremme believes he can find a place in
the sport in spite of the ever-changing fads.
"The people who really work hard and really
want to be here and belong here always end up
sticking around for a while," he said.

Todd Bodine, who won the
season-opening Craftsman
Truck Series race at Daytona
and is second in the points
standings, after the first four
races, recently participated in a
teleconference with reporters,
including Rick Minter of Cox
News Service, to discuss his sta-
tus in the sport: -
On his family's approach to
dealing with fans and the
media: "We were brought up to
try to be good people and do
everybody the way you would
want to be done. We grew up in
this sport. It's all we've ever
done. If you ask my brothers
this question, they'd say the
same thing: We learn by exam-
ple. I learned from my brothers,
and they learned from guys like
Richard Petty and David
Pearson. And especially
Richard, [who is].appreciative
of the fans and always signing
autographs and smiles. You


learn by' example. And I think
that some of that has been lost
in racing. I think some of these
new kids need to learn a little
bit of that. But I really appreci-
ate it. Being part of this sport is
very important to my family
and always has been. And we're
proud to represent the sport the
best we can."
On the effects of the horse-
power reduction caused by
the new carburetor spacer
that has been mandated for
the Truck and Nationwide se-
ries this year: "It's a tapered
spacer, and it doesn't hurt the
bottom-end torque of the motor,
It's meant to take top-end horse-
power, top-end speed off of the
motor. And that's exactly what
it's done at all the tracks. [But]
at Martinsville, I was very sur-
prised, it didn't slow us down
hardly at all. I'm very pleased
with the spacer. Even at all the
other tracks we've raced at, like

~opening Chevy Silverado 250 truck race at Daytona.


which made the other manufac-
turers step lip their programs.
And the fact that we have a lot
of veterans has made this se-
ries very interesting, because
the fans can relate to the drivers
that are involved, guys like
[Mike] Skinner and [Ron]
Hornaday and [Jack] Sprague
aind Rick Crawford. Then we've
got a great crop of rookies, and
we've had a great crop every
year. The trucks are a great
place to learn because they're a
lot more forgiving than a car.


California, it took about 6 miles
an hour off the top end of the
straightaways, but we still had
to lift in the corner because you
can, only ~go through the corner
so fast. I think it's worked out
really well."
On why the Truck Series
has attracted veterans and
rotikies in recent years: "The
series has evolved into a very
competitive one. The manufac-
turers have gotten [more] in-

BY MELANIE NORWOOD AYCOCK
Assistant Supervisor of Elections,
Calh0Un COUnty

A private, national organiza-
tion has mailed a second round
of misleading voter registration
applications to a number of res-
idents in Calhoun and Liberty
counties, Once again creating
confusion for some people who
have received the forms, say
elections su ervisors in both
counties. .
The applications, mailed
from a "Voter Participation .
Center" with a Massachusetts
post office box for a return
address, look official, said
Liberty County Supervisor of
Elections Marcia Wood, "but
we want our residents to know
that this mailing did not origi-
nate in either county or even in
Florida."
Calhoun County Elections
Supervisor Margie Laramore
says that a stern warning print-
ed in bold letters on the outside
of the envelope advising resi-
dents that the application
should be returned to comply
with legal requirements may
alarm registered voters who
believe their voter registration
records are in good order.
"The official address printed

families of two deceased voters
for whom the applications were

ones that I know about," she
said, since family members of
those voters returned the appli-
cations to the Florida Division
of Elections with notations that
the voters had passed away long
ago, one of them more than 15
years. Elections officials
around Florida and in other
states have reported similar
incidents, including an applica-
tion for a person who died 45
years ago.
"We don't know where they
got their mailing list," said
Wood, adding that she was
unaware that another set of
applications had been mailed
until she started getting phone
calls from puzzled voters.

April is National Volunteer
Month and to celebrate,
Emerald Coast Hospice is spot-
lighting one volunteer each
week for the entire month. Our
first volunteer spotlight is on
Johnnie Graham of
Blountstown in Calhoun
County. ,
Johnnie Graham is a man
who, in his own words, likes "to
make a difference". But like so
many other things about
Johnnie Graham, this is an
understatement. Johnnie
Graham is a man making a real
difference one prayer-full act at
a time. And this guy can pack a
lot of prayers,
Take his decision to become
an Emerald Coast Hospice vol-
unteer. When Johnnie started
feeling the nudge to volunteer
for hospice, he prayed about it
himself and then asked his
entire Bible study Class to pray
on it as well an "intercessory
prayer" he .called it. The

from his hours spent with
inpatients in quiet support when
mp"I just ~knew it was important
that I could be there." We both
laughed at learning this impor-
aham tant lesson; of the value of just
"being" versus "doing" as sup-


port to a terminally ill patient.
It is as natural to bear witness
at the end-of-life as it is at the
beginning. Johnnie Graham

time.

response came back unarli-
mous, he says, and in March of
2006 he became an Emerald
Coast Hospice volunteer.
There is a thread of consis-
tency in Johnnie's life; themes
that keep repeating themselves,
lending a solid quality to his
soft-spoken man. A strong
Christian faith weaves through
his actions like gold threads
through a tapestry, touching
every decision he makes.
Johnnie's effectiveness is also
due to the fact that he simply
doesn't operate in a vacuum.
Along with is faith in God,
Johnnie understands the power
of community and knows when
to ask for help as well as being
quick to give it. His hospice
patients are richer because of it.
Asked what advice he would
give to someone considering
hospice volunteer service,
Johnnie replied "Pray about it,
then jump right in and do it."
His favorite hospice stories are
