Rising fuel costs are taking a toll on school system,

law enforcement and road department budgets.


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
With gas prices soaring
to $4 per gallon and upward
this week, Calhoun County
officials are facing severe
budget crunches and seek-
ing ways to reduce costs.
"All we're trying to do is
stay alive in the midst of it,"
says Clerk of Court Ruth
Attaway. "In our road
department, we use a lot of
fuel, especially diesel. This
increase was not expected
when we set the budget.
We've been most effected in
our FEMA projects The
v.ork projects were written
three or four years ago
when fuel was $1.60 and
$1.70 per gallon And we
get reimbursed based on
that. Naturally. 'ou look at
every situation to reduce
your cost where you can.
But some of it is just what it
is it doesn't seem like we
can do a whole lot, but in
the future w'e will have to
reduce projects."

have certainly taken a toll
on the district's budget
According to Suzanne
Mason, Finance Officer for
the school system, between
July 1, 2007 through the
Mlay board meeting, the


amount spent on gas and
diesel was up $35,408 com-
pared to the same period
the previous year.
As Mason points out,
"You've got to run the
buses, there is really no way
to cut it back."
The Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office is probably
the agency most impacted
by the rising fuel costs.
"Between patrolling, work
squads, inmate transports,
school safety, our literacy
and truancy officer, we
cover about a half million
miles per year," says Sheriff
David Tatum. "I estimate
some vehicles s do better, but
we average about 12 miles
per gallon on our patrol
cars. We have consumed
probably 35.000 to 40.000
gallons of fuel this year."
With law enforcement

Sheriff Tatum is finding cre-
atiue ways to cut back.

A Grand Ridge man is crit-

early morning hours Saturday
in Calhoun County.
Jerry Lee Sullivan, 48s
remained in the surgical inten-

Center at press time Tuesday
morning.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, Sullivan was
a passenger in a 1997
Chevrolet pickup driven by
Hansford Eugene Griffis, 37,
of Marianna. The pair were
westbound on SR 20 around
12:40 a.m. and, as they

K.B. Jones Road, Griffis says
he decided to turn around and
go back to Marianna. As he
was attempting the turn,
Sullivan reportedly opened
the passenger side door to
check on his dog that was rid-
ing in the bed of the truck.
The vehicle was in motion at
the time and Sullivan fell onto
the paved shoulder. The right
rear tire then traveled over his
head.
Griffis called 911 and


advised the dispatcher he
thought he had run over his
buddy's head. He could only
advise they were on Highway
20, but didn't give a specific
location.
Deputy Eddie Dalton
began searching and, as he
came to the Chipola River
Bridge, he observed a vehicle
on the side of the road and two

Board



passes



Neves'



plan

BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Despite all the fireworks,
the Calhoun County School
Board voted unanimously to
approve Superintendent Mary
Sue Neves' recommendation
not to consolidate and to pur-
sue a new* high school for
Blountstown.
As reported in last week's
issue of The County Record,
the first phase of Neves' pro-
posal includes building a new
BHS on the present campus
and moving Blountstown
Middle School to the current
BHS building. All administra-
tive district offices would be
moved.to the present BMS
facilities.
Phase II involves develop-
ing short and long range plans
for Altha Public School. First
on the agenda is using the
$2,035,000 the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection has paid to replace
elementary classrooms affected
by discharge from old petrole-
um tanks that were discovered
back in 1987. A plan will also
be developed to move students
out of the old main building
and into new classrooms.
Phase III consists of creat-
ing a plan for Carr School and
Phase IV will focus on
Blountstown Elementary.
School Board district. 5
member Danny Hassig made a
motion to approve the plan.
However, he said he did not
wish to rescind the consolida-
tion decision until the legisla-
ture agreed to pass the new
plan. District 2 Board member
Kelly King said she was con-
cerned that rumors of forcing
Altha to consolidate -at BHS
would occur if the vote wasn't
rescinded. A heated discussion
ensued. At one point, the
exchange between District 1
candidate Danny Ryals and
Board member Danny Hassig
became so intense, Neves
called a recess.
In the end, the Board voted
5-0 to. approve the plan, with
an amendment added by King
that the new school would only
be for those students who chose
to attend BHS.

The County Record, JUNE 4, 2008, Page 2


Dear Editor,
Now, I remember why it
didn't break my heart to leave
Blountstown in 1980. Most of
the kids were great to teach,
coach and cheer through all
sorts of activities and chal-
lenges. And there continues to
be an abundance of great kids
in Calhoun County today and,
of course, there were a lot of
really good older folks around,
then as now.
However, in my humble
opinion, nine- and 10-year olds
are way too young and innocent
to be subjected to the preju-
dices, envy, and hidden agen-
das of their elders. Blountstown
lost a dang good young coach in
1980 and that was his (my)
fault.
Potentially much worse for
Blountstown is the secretive
policies and procedures that the
current "king and his court" of
Blountstown's Dixie Youth
League AAA baseball control.
Their "all star" balloting leaves
much to be desired, to say the
least. There is also a severe
lack of explanation or objective
justification. Their actions
alone have put into motion the
process of losing a precious
young sportsman, teammate,
athlete, artist and student, who
just wants to play ball, if not
here, then somewhere else.
Now, that is Blountstown's
loss and it's their fault.

To the Editor:
"Start from scratch"...these
were the words quoted by our
Calhoun County* School
Superintendent after maneu-
vering 180 degrees from a path
that she insisted must be.done
for the betterment of Calhoun
County's public education sys-
tem.
While disagreeing with the
logistics of bigger-is-better edu-
cation that has been pursued
igorIuslyby our curreht super-
intendent and the majority of
our school board members, I
could at least respect these
individuals' unswerving convic-
tion. However, when it came
down to driving the first nails
home in consolidation, these
individuals failed. The plan was
"scratch"ed before it startede.
What do Calhoun County
residents have to show from the
last few years of these individu-
als' efforts? We have the bills
from experts that were hired to
study consolidation. We have
wasted public time and paid
salaries during this pursuit of a
flawed plan. We have
increased property taxes and
sales taxes that were imple-
mented amid promises that
these were necessary for con-
solidation.
Calhoun County residents
must now try to "scratch" a liv-
ing while facing the increase in
property and sales taxes due to
the mismanagement of the pub-
lic's trust and resources. When
we reflect upon their job per-
formance, do we really wish to
continue to pay our current
school superintendent twice
what the average family in
Calhoun County earns and our
current part-time school board
members more than the aver-
age full-time worker makes in
Calhoun County?


I propose that the county
sales tax be reconsidered on the
November ballot as many vot-
ers agreed to the added burden
due to the school superinten-
dent's urging that the funds
would be applied to funding
consolidation. I further propose
that Calhoun County indeed
take the recommendation from
our school superintendent and
"start from scratch"...begin-
ning with the offices of school
superintendent and school
board member.

Dear Editor,
This letter is to all our
friends here in Calhoun County.
We want to thank you for all
the love and concern you
showed to all of us during the
time of the earthquake in
China.
Our daughter, Jenny, and
husband, Chad Graber, and
son, Matthew, have lived in
China for 3 1/2 years. Chad
has been teaching English in a
college in Wenchuan County
for the past year. This was the
area of the epicenter of the
earthquake on May 11th. We
did not hear anything about
them for 5 days, then the news
trickled in until Monday when I
was able to finally talk to Jenny
personally. The Lord spared
them from any physical harm,
but they did experience many
other things.
They are presently living in
Chengdu and will be there till
they come home sometime in
the next month or so. Chad is
doing relief work with an
agency there called "Heart to
Heart". The needs are so great.
Some have lost home, family
and even land. This should be
the time for planting and har-
vesting and there is no place to
.do this. The devastation is so
widespread, and the future is
bleak. Winter will come and
there is no place to keep them-
selves warm.
The losses are great, but the
grace of the Lord is greater. I
would like to ask you to pray
that the message of God's grace
-would reach them and they,
would experience the greatest
"'giff ftftiat-"'6Christ's salvation.
Times like these make us think
of the important things. I
would not be your friend if I did
not remind you that Jesus loves
you, and wants you also to expe-
rience his grace and salvation.
Someday, you will also come to
your last day, and where will
you wake up?
We love you and appreciate
your shower of love for us.

Vaughn back in court;




civil suit 'not off table'


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor

Lisa Vaughn, the former
Calhoun County Jail inmate
who captured jailer Billy
Strawn in an incriminating
video back in April, was back in
court last Wednesday facing the
charges that initially landed her
behind bars.
Vaughn, 32, and her hus-
band, Phillip, 35, were arrested
back in March after chemicals
used in the manufacture of
meth were discovered at their
home. When she was released
from jail,back in April, she cap-
tured Strawn on tape making a
deal to give her husband special
treatment while he remained
behind bars if she agreed to
have sex with him. Strawn has
since been terminated.
Vaughn's attorney, Craig
Brown, tells The County
Record the charges against his
client were either dismissed or
nolle pressed when she was
released from jail, but she was
charged again after the video-
tape surfaced.
"We're primarily focusing on
the criminal case, understand-
ing that Mrs. Vaughn was a vic-
tim and the primary thing 'we
will be doing is protecting all


her interests," Brown remarks.
As far as a civil suit, Brown
says, "That's not off the table."
Sheriff David Tatum says
Vaughn's charges were never
dismissed when she was
released from jail. "The State
Attorney's Office had not filed
the information yet," he
reports. "It's not unusual that it
hadn't been filed. There is usu-
ally lag time between an arrest
and them filing it."
Tatum also says Vaughn had
asked to serve as an informant
in another meth lab operation
and large scale marijuana case
in order to receive special con-
sideration when her case went
before the judge.
"She and her husband did
that on the previous meth lab
case that resulted in us getting
buys off a larger supplier. The
judge gave her consideration for
it in the previous case and she
wanted that again. That was
why she was released contin-
gent upon their cooperation and
that outcome."
However, after the video-
tape scandal, Sheriff Tatum
says he did not feel it would
have been appropriate to'titilize
her as -an informant.
Vaughn is due back in court
for a pre-trial hearing July 30.


Dep. Dalton nabs man


with $16,000 drug money

BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor

The Calhoun County Sheriff's Office seized $16,000 and over
23 grams of marijuana following a routine traffic stop in the early
morning hours Thesday.
Dep. Eddie Dalton (pictured above) was observing traffic on
SR 20 West in Blountstown around 12:40 a.m. when he pulled
Nathaniel Andrew Cookley, 41, over after observing his van cross
the center line three times.
Cookley advised he was simply tired, but appeared nervous.
Dep. Dalton also noticed several fabric softener sheets in the vehi-
cle. After Cookley's license came back suspended, Dep. Dalton
inquired if there were any illegal drugs or guns in the van. Cookley
hesitated for several seconds before replying, "No." When Dep.
Dalton advised his K-9 Gina was going to do an exterior sniff of the
vehicle, Cookley then stated there was a "sack of weed" in the
van. A search turned up a lunch box with a clear plastic bag of
marijuana that weighed in at 23.5 grams. A silver jacket was dis-
covered in the back seat of the van with a vacuum sealed clear
plastic bag and a tinfoil wrapped package inside. When questioned
about the contents, Cookley advised it was money, but didn't know
how much. it was opened at the jail and turned out to be $16,000.
Cookley gave a sworn statement that he had picked the cash up
for a friend in Tallahassee in exchange for $300 and the bag of
marijuana he intended to sell for extra cash since he was current-
ly out of work due to an injury. He said he had no-idea how much
money was in the package when he picked it up, but stated it was
for drugs. He refused to name the friend for whom he was making
the cash pickup.

BY KRISTY HALLEY SPEERS
Executive Director
"We're a member of the
Chamber." What exactly does
that mean? Why would anyone
want to pay annual dues to be a
member of their local Chamber
of Commerce? It's simple -
membership has its privileges.
The Calhoun County
Chamber of Commerce works
with businesses to foster and
encourage success. By offering
countless networking events,
educational opportunities, and
acting as the voice of local busi-
ness, the Chamber actually
works on behalf of its members.
In short, membership is an
investment in your business
and your community.
Currently, the Chamber
holds monthly membership
meetings where speakers from
the region are invited in to
share their knowledge with
attendees. May's speaker was
Glenda Hutzel from I Can
Grow, Inc. Glenda and her
family have a farm that they've
turned into land that harvests
much more than crops they
actually use the farm to teach
disabled children and offer
tours of the real working farm.
June's speaker will be Dr. .Mary
Wolfgang who will talk about
"Green Guides" and a certifica-
tion program that she started
with the Wakulla Chamber of
Commerce at Tallahassee
Community College to train

and certify locals on how to give
nature tours. And finally, in
June, Enterprise Florida will
conduct a workshop on the
Enterprise Zone and how those
who own a home or business in
the E-Zone may qualify for tax
advantages and incentives.
During the recent Visioning
2011 workshop, a committee
was formed to focus on mem-
bership enhancement to take
benefits a step further. The
proposed Membership
Enhancement Committee will
work to task young people to
get involved in the business
process. The committee will
develop a Chamber-sponsored


youth leadership program that
will encourage businesses to
buy in to what's going on in our
local school system and encour-
age kids to get involved with
building the community. This
leadership program will be a
beneficial partnership and won-
derful opportunity to teach
young people about business.
If you would like more infor-
mation on the Chamber of
Commerce, or would like to be
involved with the Membership
Enhancement Committee's
youth leadership agenda, please

Tips for protecting your

home against wildfires


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging state resi-
dents to take action around
their homes to prevent wildfires
damage.
"There are simple 'Firewise'
principles that everyone can
put into practice immediately
with little or no cost." Bronson
said.
Fire researchers have
demonstrated that even 30 feet
of defensible space around a
home can greatly decrease the
probability of structure damage
or loss due to a wildfire. Little
things often cause a structure to
ignite rather than the major
flame front itself. Bronson
urges every homeowner to
review the National Fire
Protection Association's recom-
mended standards for people to
follow who live in or near the.
wildland areas. The standards.
can be found online at
http://www.nfpa.org/freecodes/f
ree_access_document.asp?id=
114408
Bronson said there are three
areas around a home that
require attention:

As Florida grows, so does its demand for energy
and natural resources air, water and land. For this
reason, Florida Public Utilities will perform a FREE
Energy Analysis of your home or business revealing
how you can make improvements to control your
costs, live more comfortably and conserve resources.
You may even qualify for cash rebates toward energy-
efficient upgrades. To learn more call FPU today.

-- Roof and gutters. Remove
all dead leaves, pine needles,
small twigs and palm fronds --
anything that can ignite easily
by falling embers.
-- Sides of the home.
Remove dead vegetation and
any combustibles such as fire-
wood piles from the sides of the
home.
Area within 30 feet of the
home. Remove dead vegeta-
tion, keep grass cut and
watered, remove any vines
stretching from the wildland to
the home or into trees, prune
dead limbs from trees and bush-
es.

Boyd disappointed with



new water sharing plan


WASHINGTON, D.C.-
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida) expressed disap-
pointment Monday with the
Biological Opinion released by
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service (USFWS) on the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers'
Revised Interim Operations
Plan (RIOP) for water sharing
between Florida, Georgia, and
Alabama along the
Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-
Flint (ACF) system. In the
Biological Opinion, USFWS


determined that the water plan,
allowing for flows as low as
4,500 cubic feet per second
(cfs), would be in effect for the
next five years.
The new water plan also
allows for more storage reten-
tion in upstream lakes to the
detriment of downstream users.
Additionally, both the Corps
and USFWS have stated that
the demands along the ACF
system are significant and those
will only increase; yet the new
tri-state water plan fails to


address demand management
along the system.
"I am deeply concerned that
the potential for historically low
flows to the Apalachicola River
for the next five years could
have devastating effects on our
river, our bay, and the people of
North Florida," said
Congressman Boyd. "The
Corps' most recent tri-state
water plan does not even come
close to balancing the needs of

Farm Bill becomes law


Fla. Farm Bureau


thanks lawmakers


Last week, the U.S. House
overrode President Bush's veto
of the farm bill, voting 14 of the
bill's 15 titles into law. The
house vote was 316 to 108 to
override; the Senate voted 81-
13 to override. The House and
Senate have determined that
14 of the 15 titles are already
law, so there will be no short-
term extension of the 2002
farm bill. The House and
Senate will act in June to fix a
clerical error that had caused
the President to veto a bill that
did not include the trade title.
"We appreciate the mem-
bers of the Florida delegation
who stayed the course and
voted for the farm bill and we
are calling upon our members
to express their appreciation,"
Florida Farm Bureau President
John L. Hoblick said, adding
that the 2008 farm bill is more
supportive of Florida agricultur-
al producers than previous farm
bills.
Senators Bill Nelson and
Mel Martinez were steadfast
supporters of the farm bill, and
12 members of the Florida
House delegation voted "yea"
on the override vote. They are
Reps. Allen Boyd, Corrine
Brown, Ginny Brown-Waite,
Vern Buchanan, Lincoln Diaz-
Balart, Mario Diaz-Balart,
Alcee Hastings, Ron Klein, Tim
Mahoney, Kendrick Meek,
Adam Putnam and Debbie
Wasserman Schultz.
The bill includes a new
Specialty Crop Title that pro-
vides more than $1 billion for
state block grants; Florida will
receive the second-largest

Crop report

deadline set

for June 30
The deadline to report
peanuts, cotton, corn, soy-
beans, fruits, and grass for hay,
seed or grazing is June 30,
2008. Fall and spring vegeta-
bles should be reported fifteen
days after planting.

amount of grant benefits. It
increases food stamp and school
nutrition programs and includes
a fresh fruit and vegetable pro-
gram for schools that will pro-
vide nutritious Florida products
to millions of school children.
Nutrition programs make up
about two-thirds of the spend-
ing.
The conservation title
increases programs that will
help Florida producers protect
and conserve natural resources.
The bill also increases the sugar
loan rate by three-quarters of a
cent and will. provide for a
sugar-to-ethanol program.

Corps now

loaning out

life jackets
What is the value of your life
or that of your child? Is it worth
buying and wearing a properly
fitting life jacket when you play
or fish in a U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers rivers or lakes?
Last year, 25 individuals
drowned in Mississippi,
Alabama, Florida and Georgia
river and lake projects man-
aged by Mobile District. This
year, seven fathers, sons, and
husbands have drowned. It is
probably a safe bet that none of
these individuals expected to
end up in the water. These
fatalities didn't have to happen
and could have been prevented
if a few safety rules had been
followed.
The Corps, encourages
everyone to play safe and to
boat safe in, on or near the
water. Remember: a child can
drown in as few as 20 seconds;
an adult in 60 seconds. It takes
less than one minute to put on a
life jacket, snap the clips and
adjust the fit.
This year to promote water
safety and help prevent drown-
ing, visitors will find life jacket
loaner stations at corps recre-
ation areas in the Southeastern
United States. Visitors can find
information about the program
at the gate attendant stations,
on the beaches or in the camp-
ground. Each project has tai-
lored the life jacket loaner pro-
gram to meet its needs.

project to you, visit www.cor-

Every day more than 4000 youth try their first cigarette


Teens are pledging




to be tobacco free


Tobacco Free Florida cele-
brated World No Tobacco Day
on May 31 by encouraging
youth to pledge that they will
remain tobacco free and tobac-
co users to quit for good.
Visitors to tobaccofree
florida.com still have the oppor-
tunity to take the "I Care"
pledge to avoid using cigarettes
and smokeless tobacco prod-
ucts. A printable pledge card is
also available on the website for
distribution in schools or youth
organizations (TUwww.tobac-
cofreeflorida.comUT).
A poll on Tobacco Free
Florida's Facebook page,
TUwww.facebook.com/icareido
ntsmokeUT, will count the
number of "I Care" pledges
received. Those who pledge to
remain tobacco free will be able


to share their stories and spread
the word to others by becoming
a "fan" on Facebook.
Currently, there are more than
18,000 "fans" on Tobacco Free
Florida's Facebook page who
have declared to live a healthier
tobacco-free lifestyle.
"By taking the "I Care"
pledge, youth choose to abstain.
from all forms of tobacco use,
allowing them to serve as posi-
tive role models in their family
and friends' lives, not to men-
tion society as a whole," says
Kim Berfield, Deputy
Secretary of the Florida
Department of Health. "It is
crucial that youth recognize the
importance of claiming their
right to health and healthy liv-
ing by avoiding cigarettes and
smokeless tobacco."


Children and teenagers
make up 90% of the new smok-
ers in the United States and
each day, more than 4,000
young people between the ages
of 12 and 17 try their first ciga-
rette. Another 1,140 become
regular, daily smokers and of
those, about a third will die
from a smoking-related disease.
According to the Centers for
Disease Control and
Prevention, the younger one
begins to smoke, the more like-
ly they will become an adult
smoker. Young people who do
not start using tobacco by age
18 will most likely never start.

What do we want from
life? In other words -
what are our ideals and
objectives?
1 Many of us can sum
up these questions by
simply stating: "I want

Funeral Deo We don't particularly

to feel we have deserved it through our

inner-instinct tells us nothing worthwhile is
obtained without effort. Common sense tell
us that roses will have thorns and any
adequate road bed has a hard-rock base.
4000 years of recorded history has taught
us this fact.
One of our most unfair criticisms of others
is: "They have had it handed to them."
Take a good look at our heritage. We
cannot ignore our many great legacies _our
freedom.....our prosperity.....our way of life!
These were fought for and won by our
forefathers. People who removed many ,
thorns and labored on the hard-rock road-

noble ideas within us?
It is well that we remind ourselves that we,
too, will be the forefathers of future
generations and we will be handing them
something either food.good or bad.

God hosts revival

The Altha Church of God
will be hosting a revival from
June 8-11, with Pastor David
and Michele Pleasant. The
Pleasants are former pastors of


v.21. But now God's gracious
and mighty act of reconciling
them to himself makes them
His people. The cost of doing
this was through the roof. We
are not reconciled to God by the
flawless example of Christ's life
or the deep wisdom of His
teaching, but by His crucifixion
which brought suffering and
death.
The future may be inde-
scribably great, but even in this
life the believer is lifted to a
high standard of moral excel-
lence, "If you continue in your
faith" v.23. Continuance is the
test of the reality of our faith.
And such continuing prepares
us for presentation to God -
holy, blameless, and free from
accusation.

Congressman Allen Boyd (D-FL) and Congressman Tim Mahoney (D-FL) are shown above on Sunday,
May 25, with Florida troops stationed in Afghanistan.



Boyd meets with troops



during trip to Afghanistan


WASHINGTON, D.C.--
Congressman Allen Boyd (D-
North Florida) recently
returned from a bicameral con-
gressional delegation trip to
Afghanistan, Pakistan, India,
and Germany where he met
with U.S. troops, was updated
on our military operations in
Afghanistan, and discussed our
efforts in the hunt for Osama
bin Laden and the global war
on terror.

Over the Memorial Day
weekend, Congressman Boyd
first visited Landstuhl Regional
Medical Center in Germany,
where seriously wounded serv-
ice members from Iraq and
Afghanistan are treated.
Congressman Boyd was
impressed with the high quality
of medical services available to
the men and women receiving
care at Landstuhl Regional
Medical Center.
"In talking with our troops, I
am continually reminded that
we are the great nation we are
today because of these brave
men and women who answered
the call to duty," said
Congressman Boyd. "As a


Vietnam veteran, it really is
inspirational to see the heart
that these kids bring to the
fight. I traveled to Iraq last
year, and the morale of our
troops is excellent everywhere I
go. We need that to continue."
In Afghanistan,
Congressman Boyd talked with
our military leaders and exam-
ined U.S. military operations,
which are critical to our nation-
al security interests and objec-
tives. Congressman Boyd also
met with the President of
Afghanistan, Hamad Karzai, to
assess the progress being made
to combat terrorism and the
capabilities of the Taliban. In
India and Pakistan,
Congressman Boyd examined
efforts by India and Pakistan to
fight terrorism and discussed
Pakistan's continued U.S. sup-
port for their efforts in the glob-
al war on terror.
"This trip gave me more
insight into the challenges faced
by our troops and military lead-
ers in theaters beyond Iraq that
are essential to our national
security," Boyd stated. "Iraq
often grabs most of the head-
lines, but Afghanistan and


Pakistan play more critical roles
in the global fight against terror-
ism. This region of the world,
with Afghanistan and Pakistan
at the epicenter, is the central
front in our war against terror
and will continue to be a major
part of American foreign policy
for years to come."

"Our troops, military lead-
ers, and Foreign Service officers
work hard around the world to
serve American interests and to
fight the spread of terrorist net-
works and their ideology, espe-
cially in Afghanistan and
Pakistan," Boyd continued. "In
the war on terror, we cannot be
defensive; we must be offensive
and use our resources, our
assets, and our allies in the
region so that we can fight ter-
ror more effectively. As a mem-
ber of the Defense
Subcommittee of the House
Appropriations Committee, I
intend to put the lessons
learned on this trip to use and
continue to work to strengthen
our national security and
remain vigilant in our efforts to
keep America and the people
safe."


City water is good source of fluoride



Health Dept. discusses



how to fight tooth decay


The Calhoun County Health
Department is doing a column
for The County Record to pro-
vide valuable health informa-
tion to our readers. This week,
the topic is fluoride.
What is fluoride?
A naturally occurring miner-
al that helps fight tooth decay.
How does it help your
teeth?
It makes teeth stronger and
can prevent cavities. Fluoride
can decrease the amount of cav-
ities in your children by 40% to
50%.
How can I make sure
my family gets the right
amount of fluoride for
their teeth?
Drink Blountstown city
water. It contains 0.6 ppm flu-
oride naturally and is adequate
to provide the fluoride you and
your family needs if you drink it
on a regular basis.
Brush your teeth with fluo-


Chipola-

Swimming lessons will be
offered for ages four and up.
Lessons are based on a combi-
nation of nationally-recognized
methods. The following sessions
are scheduled: Session 1: June
2-12; Session 2: June 16-26;
Session 3: July 14-24; and
Session 4: Aug. 4-14. Classes
are available at 9 a.m., 10 a.m.
or 7 p.m. Sessions are Monday
through Thursday for two
weeks of 45-minute lessons.
Cost is $45 and pre-registration
is required, with a $5 late regis-
tration fee. An Adult swimming
class will meet June 30-July 3,
10 a.m. or 7 p.m. Cost is $40.
Infant and Preschool Swimming
lessons for children 3 and under
will meet July 7-10 and July 28-
31 with classes available at 10
a.m. and 7 p.m. Cost is $30.

ager Rance Massengill at 718-

ride toothpaste and don't rinse
your mouth after brushing.
If you don't use city water,
you can have your well checked
for fluoride. If there is no fluo-
ride in your water, you can ask
your doctor to provide'a fluo-
ride supplement to your chil-
dren. Regular use of fluoride
toothpaste should be adequate
for adults in the family.
The health department
and your school health nurses
provide a fluoride rinse pro-
gram at your local school.
All children should receive
appropriate topical and sys-
temic fluoride beginning at 6
months of age.
*There are topical fluoride
rinses available over the count-
er in your local pharmacy.


Follow the directions on the bot-
tle or ask your local pharmacist.'
Can fluoride be danger-
ous?
Too much fluoride can cause,
fluorosis, a discoloration of the'
teeth. Fluoride toxicity can,
occur and can cause nausea,,
vomiting, diarrhea, and abdom-'.
inal pain. This only occurs"
when large amounts of fluoride
are ingested in a short.period of
time. This is very rare.
Questions?
You can contact your local
physician or dentist if you have'
any questions. You can also con-
tact the Calhoun County
Health Department at 850-
674-5645. Ask for Ms. Julie
VanderMeer, the Healthy
Communities Coordinator.

system, and that is what we
should be working towards,
instead of interim approaches
that reward the state of Georgia
for failing to plan for their water
needs. The Fish and Wildlife
Service has even said that this
RIOP is not the answer for how
water along the ACF should be
managed or allocated over the
long term."
On Monday, July 21,
Congressman Boyd will be
holding a Congressional Forum
in Chattahoochee, Florida, on'
the impact of'the southeastern
drought and low water flows on
the Apalachicola River and Bay
and North Florida's communi-
ties. Representatives from the
Corps and USFWS will be at
the Congressional Forum to
hear from Florida's stakehold-
ers and local experts on the
ACF system.
"The people of North
Florida who depend on the
Apalachicola River and Bay for
their livelihood must be heard,"
Boyd stated. "I am eager for
the Corps and USFWS to hear
firsthand from our oystermen,
shrimpers, and others along the
river and bay who have a
tremendous stake in the ACF
issue. Those of us in North
Florida are committed to mak-
ing sure that Florida's
resources are protected. After
years of disputes, I will contin-
" ue working and pushing on a
local, state, and federal level to
see that a reasonable and long
term water management solu-
tion for the ACF system is
developed."

Agency (FSA) in Florida,
reminds Florida livestock pro-
ducers they have until July 18,
2008, to enroll in the 2005-
2007 Livestock Compensation
Program (LCP) and Livestock

Signup began on September 10,
2007, for the two programs that
provide aid to livestock produc-
ers who suffered eligible live-
stock or livestock feed losses
between January 1, 2005, and
December 31, 2007 because of
a natural disaster.
"The deadline to enroll in
the 2005 2007 Livestock


Compensation Program and
Livestock Indemnity Program
is rapidly approaching, "said
Kelley. "I encourage all eligible
producers to enroll soon
because sign-up ends on July
18, 2008."
LIP provides payments to
eligible livestock owners and
contract growers who incurred
the death of livestock because
of a natural disaster. LCP pro-
vides payments to eligible live-
stock owners and cash lessees
who suffered feed losses or
increased feed costs because of
a natural disaster.
More information about
LCP and LIP is available online
