As local residents knbw,
Calhoun County is a safe place:
to live. But now it's official: this
is the second safest county in~
the entire state.
The-Florida Department of,
Lae Enfost em nt released
week, revealing Calhoun~
County had the second lowest
crime rate in the state, just
behind Lafayette County.
"We have enjoyed a place it
the top three for the past sever-,
al years," says Sheriff David
Tatum. "Although our popula-:
tion is small, the crime index is~
based on the number of crimes:
per capital. This allows us to:
measure our successes along~


Sheriff Tatum -says the
Crime Index Rate is a measure

1056.8~ basedl on an estimated
population of 14,777. "This
actually represents 153 index
effens s," he oexp ains,innco g
murder, forcible sex offenses,
robbery, aggravated assault,
burglary, larceny, and motor
vehicle theft.
In comparing Calhoun with
surrounding counties,
Jackson's rate was 2707.5 and
Gadsden's was 3429.3. Liberty
County did not provide data for
2007. Lafayette had the lowest
rate at 961.7. The .overall
crime rate for the state is
4694.7.
Cal~hhu Co nutyms ac1arahc
rate, which measures the num-
ber of crimes solved, is at
50.3%, quite impressive since
the state average is only
22.7%.

and thanks to BHS faculty and
Rivertown Community Church.
We would like to give a special
thanks to Mrs. Loraine
McClellan (BHS faculty mem-
ber) and Mr. Paul Smith
(Pastor of Rivertown

of everyone's gratitude and gra-
ciousness I was able to also
receive a Take Stock In
Children Scholarship which was
a big surprise to botli me and
my family.
I am honored and very excit-
ed that I was able to receive
this wonderful scholarship. This
is a blessing from God that I
fnyself am very proud of. I
have worked so hard to get
where I am now and I will con-
tinue to work twice as hard to
reach all of my goals. I would
like to say that because of you
wonderful people I will have a
chance to make something of
myself and to fellow all of my
dreams.
Once agaiin thank you so
much for everything. Thank
you for believing in me and also
helping me believe in myself.
Thanks for giving me the
knowledge to know that I can
do all things if I believe and
work hard to achieve.
Thanks,

-Dear Editor:
SFirst, I would like to respond
:to the comments made by Mr.
~ookr mdThed Cunty Record

certainlyy got "bent out of
:shape" for someone who was
not directly or personally
involved in the Settlement
events that I related. Talk
about the pot calling the kettle
black!
Regarding your reference to
any complaint: The complaint
~ras with the Settlement and
:how they organized the event.
;It had absolutely nothing to do
with you. And as you pointed
but--in this country we have
freedom of speech and freedom
bfpessofd wich tokoudva -

rFight than me to take advantage
-of that and with less cause?
SFurther, for your informa-
4ion, I was going to write a let-
ier to- the Settlement only.
IHowever, like and similar cir-
lrmtances as I described h:::

encouraged me to write to the
~editor as they felt a letter to the



Settlement. I concurred. We
~feel that in its quest for funds,
:the Settlement sometimes over-
3ooks the fact 'that they are
:dealing with real flesh and
blood people accompanied by
all those messy human emo-
tions. We feel that goodwill
from both sides, the Settlement
and the community, is neces-
sary for the Settlement to be
viable. Therefore, being the


only one with the moxie to do
so, I wrote the letter, and I do
not apologize for it,
This being the case, if you
think your diatribe has changed
my opinion, then you can think
again. As I stated in my origi-
nal letter to the editor, I would
have had no problem with pre-
ordered and prepaid plates had
the settlement made it
absolutely clear that this was
the only manner in which one
could obtain a plate during the
Battle of the Grill Chefs.
However, they did not. THEY
invited the community, which
includes me and my three
granddaughters-ages 7, 5, and
2-who accompanied me, my 68-
year old mother, my 95-year
old grandmother, and anyone
else in the community who read
the article, to come out and
support them by spending the
day enjoying the entertainment
and the food. I did not have to
give up my Saturday (one of the
few days that I can spend all
day at home and not have to
rush off to work, church, etc.) to
go out and support the
Settlement. I chose to. So
applying your Let's Make a
Deal and curtain number one
simile, then yes, I got a zonkk


prize" because the Settlement
did not honor their invitation
and extend full hospitability to
all who chose to come out to
support them at their invita-
tion. For some reason, Mr.
Cook, you seem to feel that the
issue here was food. But the
real issue is the issue of hospi-
tality. Do you really think, Mr.
Cook, that it was hospitable for
the Settlement to charge people
a $3 entrance fee and then tell
them that they could not pur-
chase a plate after being invited
out and told that they could do
so? I do not think it was and
quite a few other people who
talked to me about the matter
did not think so either.
However, the next time I am
at one of the Battle of the Grill
Chef events and my grandchil-
dren turn to me and say,
"Nana, we're hungry," I may
take you up on your hospitable
offer of food. Frankly, though,
at this time, I feel more inclined
to pack a lunch. That wacy I
have a sure thing, and do not
have to gamble on either cur-
tain number one, two, or three.
As for the "great contribu-
tion" that the Settlement pro-

iRespo~nsible citizenship begins early
A group of home-schooled children and their mothers from
.Calhoun and Liberty counties took a field trip to the Calhoun County
Supervisor of Elections Office on March 14. The children learned
about the basic elections process, from registering to vote by com-
pleting a mock registration form to casting an actual demonstration
ballot on the county's optical-scan and touch-screen voting equip-
ment. After casting their ballots, the kids watched as on election
results tape printed from each voting machine. 'They were really
excited to see how their votes counted," said Emily Gillis, mom of
'Sam and Anna Gillis, who organized the visit with the Elections Office.
Proudly displaying the election results talpes,~ demonstration bol-
lots and a "We Voted' sign are (front row, left to right) Sylos Pickron,
.Samuel Gillis, Lydia Pickron and Coden Williams; (middle, left to
.night) Anna Gillis, Baylee Williams and Preston Williams; (back row,
left to right) Kayla Pickron, Victbria Fant, Dorren Font and Dylan
Pickron .
r In the top left photo, fuure voter Samuel Gillis, 3, of Blountstown,
takes a moment before marking his `ballot," proving it's never too
soon to instill good citizenship habits for a lifetime of civic responsi-
bility.

the others looked over his shoulder as he made his choices on the
~c~" ~demonstration ballot. In nine years, however, when he becomes a
registered voter, he'll mark his ballot in secret, as required by Florida's
voting lawS. PHOTOGRAPHS BY ANGIE SENTERRTT

In his second start of the sea-
son, Wildcats'~ hurler Ethan
Byler, struck out 3 batters,

ALTHA, APRIL 1-A game
that was a great pitchers' duel
turned out to be a cruel April
Fool's joke on the tenth-ranked
Altha Wildcats.
For the second time this sea-
son second-ranked Bozeman
Bucks (15-1; 8-0, 2-2A) white-
washed the Wildca~ts,* 2-0, and
sewed up the #1 seed in ~the
district last Thesday night.
Keith Kirkpatrick (6-2, .840
ERA) pitched well enough for
the Wildcats (15-5; 4-2, 2-2A)
to win but he got no run support
behind him. In fact, Kirkpatrick
had the only hit of the game for
the Wildcats, a bunt single in
the second inning and he stole
second. In his sixth complete
game he struck out 6 Bucks,
walked 3, and gave up only an
earned run.
Bozeman scored their first
run in the second inning when
the batter reached on a two-out
single. Kirkpatrick's pick-off
throw to first and a wild pitch
allowed the runner to advance
to second and third base.
Another single scored the run-
ner.
A lead off walk in the third
inning led to the Bucks only
other run. .
BRISTOL, APRIL 2-
Although some.of the Wildcats

these strengths are essential to
improving the emotional health
and well-being of society.
.Strengthening people and
providing support are priorities
of the social wNork profession.
Wherever there is a problem
with an individual, family or
communiity, social workers look
for the inherent strengths that
can be used as a starting point
for further growth.
"The strengths perspective
approach fosters hope by focus-
ing on the positive, rather than
on feelings of helplessness,"
says Janet Wilkie, LCSW,
director of Special Programs for
Covenant Hospice.


"Individuals, families and com-
munities can feel empowered
by looking and working with
their strengths."

SSocial Work Month also p~ro-
vides an opportunity for social
workers to highlight the essen-
tial role they play in alleviating
some ofAmerica's most difficult
problems.
Through education, training
and dedication, social workers
provide assistance in many dif-
ferent areas of practice includ-
ing health, aging, mental
health, child welfare, cancer,
end of life, adolescent health,
HIV/AIDS and family violence.

BRONSON URGES VASCCI-
NATIONS FOLLOWING
EARLY ONSET OF
EQUINE DISEASES IN
FLORIDA
Florida Agriculture and
Cnsu roer Chrervice

Bronson is reminding horse
owners to take advantage of the
vaccines available to protect
their animals against Eastern
Equine Encephalitis (EEE)
and West Nile Virus.
As the weather in Florida
warms up, the mosquito popu-
lations will increase as will the
potential for mosquito-borne
diseases. Already, nine cases of
EEE have been confirmed in
Florida since the beginning of
the year even though the peak
season does not begin until
May. There were 18 cases of
EEE in 2007 for the entire
year.
Bronson says the majority of
cases can be prevented through
proper vaccinations and booster
shots against mosquito-borne
illnesses and he is urging horse
owners to take action now. In
the nine cases in 2008, six of
the horses had not been vacci-
nated and two had not gotten
booster shots. Only one horse
was current with vaccinations.
"I am very concerned about
the high number, of cases so
early in the .year~ ard I ho~pe it
doesn't mean we are in for a
bad year," Bronson said. "But
we can take steps to keep that
from happening, and that is to
get the vaccinations done as
quickly as possible.''
EEE is a viral disease that
affects the central nervous sys-
tem and is transmitted to hors-
es by .infected mosquitoes.
Signs of the virus include fever,
listlessness, stumbling, circling,

OBSERVATIONS
Key story lines as NASCAR heads to Phoenix:

Edwards gets vindication
It's becoming inci-easingly clear that the loose
oil-tank lid discovered on Carl Edwards' car after
his victory at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in March
wasn't a big factor in his speed at that track..
Edwards, who was penalized 100
points and lost his crew chief, Bob
Osborne, for six races for the vio-
lation, came back the next week at
Atlanta Motor Speedway and led
33 1aps before a blown engine took
him out of the race.
Then on Sunday at Texas Motor
Speedway he led a race-high 123
laps en route to his third victory of EDWARDS
the season.
*He said afterward that he felt vindicated.
"Thie. reason that car was so fast at Vegas ivrasbe-
cause of the hard work by all the crew and the peo-
ple back at the shop," he said.
The victory; the 10th of Edwards' Cup career,
moved him back into the top 10 in the Sprint Cup
standings, 184 points behind leader Jeff Burton.

Experience questioned
One of the overlooked factors in Michael
McDowell's spectacular crash during qualifying
fori the Samsung 500 at Texas last week was the ex-
perience level of the driver involved.
McDowell, a 23-year-old
Phoenix native, was at-
tempting to qualify for
just his second Sprint
Cup, 1ce whhn helost
slammed head-on into
the wall and barrel-rolled
down the track.
His only other Cup
start had come the week
before on the half-mile .
Martinsville Speedway
and he had run just five
races in NASCAR's elite
divisions three in the
series now known as '
Nationwide and one in
the Craftsman Truck
Series. His best effort has
been a 14th in a
Nationwide race at
Phoenix last year.
Although a few mem-
bers of the media men-
tioned McDowell's lack of
experience, most focused
on the fact that he wasn't
irdured and on the per-
formance of safety fea-
t~ures in place since Dale Earnhardt's fatal crash in
2001. Among the features mentioned were the
SAFER barriers and the improved cockpit and
driver-restraint systems.

Petty loses sponsor, driver? -
There was bad news on two fronts last week for
one of NASCAR's oldest teams.
Petty Enterprises is losing the' current sponsor
of its flagship car, the No. 43 Dodge, and maybe its
top driver, too. And there's tur~mpil surrounding
the team's other car, the No. 45 Dodge normally
driven by K~yle Petty
SRichard Childress Racing an-
nounced this week that it will
field a fourth Sprint Cup team in
2009 with General Mills, the long-
time sponsor of Petty's No. 43, as
primary sponsor.
Although no driver was an-
I nounced, the fact that General
LABONTE Mills is involved has led to ram-
.pant speculation that Bobby
Labonte, now driving the No. 43 for Petty
Enterprises, will move to RCR next year. He al-
ready races a Nationwide Series car for RCR.
Labonte said in a statement he has no intention
of talking about his plans beyond this year.
Then, Chad McCumbee was picked to drive the
No. 45 at Texas, a decision that apparently didn't
sit well with K~yle Petty He told some reporters at
Texas that he would consider driving for another
team if the leadership at Petty Enterprises decid-
ed to repla e him.

D1~avid Ragan, the sopho-
( more driver for Roush
SFenway Racing's No. 6
Ford, entered NASCAR's elite
division last year with as little
experience as any driver who
ever advanced to the Sprint
Cup level. So it wasn't much of
a surprise that he made his
share of rookie mistakes and
wrecked a lot of cars.
But the 22-year-old graduate
of the Legends

showed great 7# geff
promise, so he

Ragan and ze e
his crew chief,
the veteran DAVID
Jimmy Fennig,
have set lofty goals for this sea-
son.
"He's not a rookie anymore,
so I think we'11 have a good
y~ear," Fennig said. "My expec-
tations are pretty high. I plan
to try to make a run to make
the Chase."
Ragan, who also is running
a full schedule in the
'Nationwide Series, seems far
more at ease in his job than he
was a year ago. And it shows.
He's 17th in Cup points and
fourth in the Nationwide
Series heading into this

point last year, he was 24th in

GREG LAUDICK / Cox News Service
Currently 17th in the Cup standings, Roush Fenway
driver David Ragan is showing more confidence and
poise in his sophomore season. "Still, we have to go
and show people," says the 22-year-old driver,


show people," he said.
He said that, even consider-
ing his inexperience last year,
he could have won a race or
two had the circumstances
been a little different. His best
run came in the fall at
Richmond, where he had the
fastest car late in the race and
was closing on the leaders, but
ran out of laps and finished
third.
"That night at Richmond,
our car was great, but I can
name six more races where we
had a car that could have won,
Where I tore the fenders off of
it or got caught speeding on pit
road or made some other mis-
take," he said.
"In the second California
race, we ran in the top 10 all


night, and I got caught speed-
ing in the pits under green two
times back-to-back. I had to
come down pit road three
times under green and still
finished 11th. We had an unbe
lievable car there."
Ragan said it won't take as
big an improvement as it
might seem to climb high -
enough in the standings to
make the cut for the season-
ending Chase.
Last year, his average finish
in the first 26 races was 23.4.
Kevin Harvick made the Chase
with an average of 15.5 and
Clint Bowyer got in with a 14.8.
"If we can average just a few
spots better, we've got a shot at

"One of the big things last

what comes next. I was never

No. 9 Dodge fdr Gillett
Evernham Motorsports, recent-

the track during a recent
NASCAR teleconference. His
comments were compiled by
Cox News Sekrvice reporter
Rick Minter:
On improving his perform-
ance this year over last sea-
son: "same team, same every-
thing. I think the biggest thing
has been to sit back and look at
everything and think about it.
We had a little bit of time to re-
group over the off-season. We're
still running basically the same
car we ran last year on the COT
side. I just think maybe the se-
tups are a little bit better. We've
just been able to put more time
into this car because of work-
ing with it for a longer period
and also just working on this
one car."
On his upcoming appear-


ance at lowa Speedway: "I'm
going to go out there on Sunday
after the All-Star race [at
Lowe's Motor Speedway] and do
the whole deal. It should be a lot
of fun. I'm looking forward to it
just to do something a little dif.
ferent. I enjoy going out and
racing my sprint car, racing
other races that aren't Sprint
Cup races. I've never been to
Iowa. I've heard a lot about it,
being Rusty Wallace's track. I
think he prita alot into it when
they built it."
On his acceptance of the
Car of Tomorrow: "I think
change sometimes is tough on
.people, on drivers, on teams. I
liked what we had. I thought
what we had was a really good
race car, so I wasn't totally on
board at the start. The longer

But Shepherd says that even
when he's racing at the back
of the pack, he stg11' gets a lot
of mileage for th@ ministry
that is a big part of his
"Victory in Jesug" race team.
"We're workmg,-cit to where
it works good fo~r ur ministry,
and we can do a lot of speak-
ing engagements," he said,
adding that he's planning a
trip to speak to ininates at a
prison near Phoenix.
He said that even though
sponsorship is vital to his race
team and his religious efforts,
he's not going to associate
with a company that would
compromise his ministry
"One thing that hurts us [in
securing sponsorship] is what
we stand for," he said. "We
won't support anything that
will harm anybody: The things
we do are about moral values,
and sometimes we kind of get
pushed to the side a little bit."

how can they believe in the one

Armed with Scripture and a
real heart for ministry (he pas-

There will also be a bounce
house for the children. The
guest speaker will be Gary
Smith of PowerSouth Energy
Cooperative. The business por-
tion of the Annual Meeting will
begin at 11 a.m.
"I invite all of our members
to come and take part in our
Annual Meeting, not only to be
present for the business portion
of the meeting, but also to enjoy
food, prizes and entertain-
ment," Gulf Coast -Electric
CEO/General Manager Roy
Barnes said.
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 more than
24,000 meters in Bay, Calhoun,
Gulf, Jackson, Walton and
Washington counties and in the
municipalities of Wewahitchka,
Ebro, White City, Lynn Haven,
Fountain and Southport.


Gulf Coast Electric
Cooperative will hold its 60th
Annual Members' Meeting this
Saturday, April 12 at its head-
quarter office, located at 722
West Highway 22 in
Wewahitchka. The purpose of
the meeting is to communicate
information about the
Cooperative, including the
financial reports and overall
business status, as well as serve
as a social event for the entire
membership.
Registration begins at 8:30
a.m. CST with each registered
member receiving a $10 credit
on his or her electric bill.
Members will be given the
opportunity to win prizes
throughout the day, including
the grand prizes, which are
three vacation packages and 10
$100 credits to an electric bill.
There will also be plenty of
refreshments provided by
GCEC and booths offering
valuable information for the
duration of the meeting.
Beginning at 9:15 a.m.,
entertainment will be provided


vides to this community-do you
mind letting me know what that
is? I have always viewed the
relationship between the
Settlement and the community
as symbiotic. The Settlement
events offer entertainment and
are normally geared towards
seeking funds from the commu-
nity. The community is not
seeking funds from the
Settlement, but does enjoy a
place to gather for entertain-
ment. So isn't the community
providing as much of a contri-
bution by its willingness to par-
ticipate in these events and to
open its financial pockets? The
community could certainly sur-
vive without the Settlement,
but could the Settlement sur-
vive without the community?
The very existence of the
Settlement is preserving a way
of life that is long past, which I '
have no objection to. I enjoy a
visit to the past as much as any-
one else, but it is an interest,
and with some, even, a passion.
The funds raised by the
Settlement do not go towards
saving lives or bettering living
conditions for present and
future mankind. Thgt would be
a"great contribution."
However, the past way of life
that the Settlemen~t seeks to
preserve did honor hospitabili-
ty. Culturally, to them, and to
me, hospitality was, and is, a
Big Deal. In fact, the ante-bel-
lum South was known nation-
wide for its hospitality, and to
this day, still retains some of
that essence; hence the evolu-
tion of the terminology
Southern Hospitality.
Spiritually, hospitality is also .
a Big Deal. In Romans.12:13,
the apostle~ Paul exhorts us to
"practice hospitality.": In
Matthew 25:34-45, Christ him-
self outlines the divine recipro-
cation of hospitality. The
reward for those who offer hos-
pitality in his name is eternal
salvation, and the consequences
for those who do not is eternal
condemnation.


Second, I would like to state
that I know Linda and WNillard
Smith personally. They are
fine people. I think that is why
their failure to offer hospitality
to all who attended this event
upset me so much; because
they are such fine people and
capable of doing much better
when it comes to being hos-
pitable. I don't know how it is
with your family, but in mine,
we love each other dearly, but
are not always necessarily in
perfect accord. So, for those of
you who might think otherwise,
let me set the record straight. I
have a great deal of respect for
both Linda and W;illard. I
admire them for their hard
work and their dedication to
something that they believe in
so passionately. The world
would have to be a better place
if more people had something
good that they, too~, believed in,
and were as willing to put in the
long hours of hard work. They
would have less time to Iget in
trouble!
Last, and in closing, I would
like to thank Linda Smith of the
Settlement for her gracious
response and apology which I
accept on my behalf and on the
behalf of others for whom I
wrote.
Sincerely yours,
Peggy Clemons Frith

percent of the cases.
So far this year EEE has
been confirmed in horses in
Putnam, Lake, Polk, Columbia,
Clay and Volusia counties, all of
which were fatal. Volusia has
been hit the hardest, with four
of the nine cases having been
found there.
