verdict

BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A Blountstown man is
facing the rest of his life
behind bars after being con-
victed of child molestation.
It took -a jury just two
hours to return a guilty ver-
dict Friday in the case
against Sam Alford, 41. He
was charged with five
counts of sexual battery on
a child less than 12 years of
age, and two counts of lewd
or lascivious molestation.
According to State
Attorney Steve Meadows,
Alford is accused of molest-
ing two sisters over a 10-
year span. Five of the sexu-
al battery counts and one of
the lewd or lascivious
counts were allegedly com-
mitted when the girls were

Granthamns develop hydrogen gas supplement system


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A Blountstown family is
using two simple ingredients
to stretch their fuel budget.
Charles Grantham. Jr.
has been tinkering with a
gadget that uses water and
baking soda, produces
hydrogen, and ultimately
enables vehicles to get way
more gas mileage.
"Using hydrogen this
way has been around since
'78, but nobody discussed it
much because gas was
cheap Now it's not," says
Grantham.


Grantham explains.
"Hydrogen and oxygen
make up water. What this
does with the chemicals and
electric charge is separate
the hydrogen from the oxy-
gen. The oxygen is vacu-
umed off as supplemental
fuel to your regular engine."
The problem many have
discovered when creating
hydrogen gas supplement
systems is keeping the heat
down. "It can get up to 150
to 250 degrees." says
Grantham. After a good
rught's sleep, he came up
with an idea that has
worked to combat that prob-


lem. "'I dreamed about
cell and it has worked I
tastic. I don't know whet
the Lord told me or wI
but it worked."
The 1990 Chevy pick
belonging to his fatl
Charles Sr., used to get 1
mpg. Now it's up to 54 n
His Dodge Neon was at
mpg and is now up to 59

Basketball coach addresses


past, ready to move forward


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
For the past 14 years,
Tony Davis has been
haunted by an incident
that occurred when he
was in college. As he
embarks on a career as
the head basketball coach
at Blountstown High
School, he is hoping to set
the record straight, once
and for all, and move for-
ward in his new job.
When he graduated
from Chipley High School
in 1992, Davis was
awarded a dual scholar-
ship in football and bas-
ketball at the University
of Florida. During his sec-
ond season at UF, a heat-
ed moment changed his
course.
Davis tells The County
Record that a document
from the Florida
Department of Education
details the allegations
against him as they were
on a police report. It
states that on or about


COACH TONY DAVIS
April 18, 1994, Davis
pushed his ex-girlfriend
into a stair railing, held
her against her will and
threatened to kill her 'by
pushing her over the rail-
ing. It goes on to say that
two days later, he forced
his way into her apart-
ment and attempted to
rape her.
Upon learning of the
allegations, The County
Record contacted the
Alachua County Clerk of
Court to learn the disposi-
tion of the case. Initially,


Davis was charged- with
sexual battery, but no
information was filed by
the State Attorney on that
case and it was dismissed.
The second charge was
aggravated assault. It was
also dismissed. In the end,
Davis was charged with
simple battery (a misde-
meanor), adjudication was
withheld, and he was
ordered to serve a year of
probation and complete a
course in anger manage-
ment.
In an interview with
Davis, he talks freely
about the allegations that
have followed him for over
a decade.
"I have been on the
cross for that,"' he
remarks. "I've been cruci-
fied already for that...at
some point, when is,
enough enough?"
Davis says he never
saw the police report until
he applied for his
teacher's certification. He

BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Qualifying week wrapped
up plans for a Blountstown city
election with the only three
candidates in three races going
unopposed.
Longtime Blountstown
Police Chief Winston Deason,
who also held the mayor's post
after his retirement, will return
to that seat. The mayor's posi-
tion has been open since earli-
er this year when Mayor
Marsha Harpbol passed away.
City Manager James Woods
says the Council will consider
swearing Deason in at their
next meeting to go ahead and
fill the vacancy.
Ward 4 incumbent Tony
Shoemake regained his seat on
the Council after no one quali-
fied to run against him. Joining
the Council for the first time
will be David Blair who cap-
tured the Ward 3 post. They
will be sworn in at the Council
meeting in January.
Altha residents will be going
to the polls August 26 to elect
a new mayor and fill three
vacant, seats on the Town
Council. Candidates for mayor
include Sarah Eagleston, Wes
Johnston, Tim Lewis, -and
Rachel Watson.
Candidates for Town
Council include Derek
Creamer, Shane Eagleston,
Charlie M. Hansford (incum-
bent), and Rick Watson
(incumbent). The top three
vote-getters will take office.
State Representative Marti
Coley was re-elected to serve
House District 7, which
includes Calhoun and Liberty
counties, after being the only
candidate to qualify.
"I am honored that I will
have the opportunity to contin-
ue serving the citizens House
District 7," said
Representative Coley. "It is a
great privilege to carry the
views and ideals of my con-
stituents to Tallahassee. The
lack of an opponent doesn't
mean I am taking anything for
granted. I know people are
struggling financially and my
goal is to continue to find ways
to increase opportunities for
everyone and to continue to
help make Florida the best
place to live, work and raise a
family."
There were no new

Jenny Yoder Graber shares second in two-part series




Aftermath of earthquake in China


BY JENNY (YODER) GRABER

Jenny Yoder Graber is the
28-year-old daughter of Ben
and Carol Yoder of
Blountstown. She and her hus-
band, Chad, along with their
two-year-old son, Matthew,
currently reside in China near
the epicenter of the earthquake
that occurred last month. They
are both teachers at a college in
Wenchuan. Last week, Jenny
shared the first part of their
story with our readers, detail-
ing the events from the time
the earthquake occurred and
the aftermath on the days that
followed. This is the second in, a
two-part series.

Thursday, May 15th
Another sunny day. That's
good, but it made the after-
noons so hot! It was also windy,
so it blew a lot of dust around.
Students started getting out
face masks to keep the dust out,
and wanted us to wear them
too. I just opted to stay in the
tent when it was windiest. The
school had been taking good
care of us, making sure that we
were safe and provided for. Lots
of people brought around food:
a box of milk for Matthew, a
hard-boiled egg, some cookies,
more lollipops, some vegetables
and rice..... They were all wor-
ried about the lao wai (foreign-
ers). I always felt bad taking
their food, knowing that we
already had more than they did,
since we had a supply at our
house to pull from. But they
wouldn't take no for an answer,
and I knew it was their way of
sharing and taking care of us.
God help me to have that
same giving spirit!!


We started hearing reports of
other towns and villages, but
didn't know for sure if they were
accurate: LuoBuZhai a small
village up in the mountains, set
up as a tourist town for the
Qiang minority peoples that we
had visited several times, the
most recent being a week
before..... only 50 survivors and
the whole town flattened. Bei
Chuan many people dead and
the town destroyed Ying Xiu -
the next big town about 20 km
down the road, which we
always drove through to get to
Wenchuan; the epi-center of
the earthquake, with 10,000
dead and the entire town flat-
tened! It was very sobering to
hear this news. With the excep-
tion of Bei Chuan, we had been
to all of these places. And the
day before the earthquake,
Chad and I had spent the after-,
noon riding up into the moun-
tains to a quiet little spot for a
Mother's Day picnic. How
could it be that all these beauti-
ful places & people were sud-
denly gone! I began to realize
how much we had been spared
from, and how lucky we were
just to be alive!
In the afternoon, a few
planes flew over and dropped
something / someone attached
to parachutes. The students
were so excited and yelled,
"Over here; We want one."
None of them ever landed on
the campus, that we found out
about. Military soldiers showed
up today in large trucks. They
just patrolled and Watched us.
We thought that if we were
going to be there for a long time,
we might as well get comfort-
able, so Chad brought down our
stove burner and the portable


gas tank so that cooking would
be easier. The neighbors (a set
of grandparents and their
daughter & grandchild) beside
us saw the stove and asked if
they could use it too. They sug-
gested that the grandma would
cook* and we'd all eat together.
Sounded good to me.

Friday, May 16th
The day was very hot,
sunny, and windy. Vicki went to
town this morning with some
students, looking for food to
buy., She found a farmer selling
dressed chickens not overly
priced. So she bought one, and
the neighbor grandma made
chicken dishes for lunch and
dinner. It tasted so good!! By
this time I was beginning to get
a bit frustrated with the
refugee-camp life-style of little
privacy, no place to put things,
people all around you. Matthew
seemed to mind the changes too
- was fussy and just seemed
insecure in general. The neigh-
bor children liked to run into
our tent and play with the toys
we found for Matthew, the stu-
dents behind us liked to talk
and laugh when it was time for
Matthew to be sleeping, the
neighbor lady was pushy about
us eating and feeding Matthew
at certain times (a schedule dif-
ferent than our own), people
wanted to visit when I wanted
to rest:......... I found myself feel-
ing irritable and longing for a
quiet place.
Chad suggested we go over
to our apartment for a bit. He
felt that our departure would
likely be this way: that the
school officials would come to us
one day and say that in ten min-
utes we needed to leave no


time to prepare or pack any-
thing. Maybe God gave him
that insight. He felt that when
we had time, we should go over
to our house and pack the most
important things. This idea was
a hard one for me, because
being in the house brought neg-
ative memories for me. But, I
was so ready for some space
that I agreed to go along. It
ended up being a good thing as
I was able to slowly sort through
my things. The house was still a
mess with broken plaster and
dust everywhere, but Chad had
swept the living room floor so
that when we first walked in, it
at least looked a bit more like
home. Matthew played with his
and I washed a few clothes by
hand not knowing how long


we'd be there and thinking that
we'd need clean clothes later
on. In looking through our
freezer, I found a pie crust and
some apple 'pie filling I had
made earlier. I was planning to
have some students over this
day to learn how to make Apple
Pie. I thought that we might be
able to make something that
resembled apple pie, so I took it
along back tQ our tent and invit-
ed them over. We made some-
thing like a fritter or dumpling
and fried them in butter. Not
apple -pie, but still something
good and a bright spot in the
day. .
Today the soldiers came onto
the sports field with several
tents. We thought they were
bringing real tents for the stu-


dents to live in. The students
cheered and yelled! It turned
out to be two medical tents.
They put a Chinese flag in
between them, and it looked
great. The bad news was that
the students had to take down
their tents and clear everything
off the field. It was a huge mess!
The school officials / army (I'm
not sure who) sprayed some
kind of spray all over the
ground maybe disinfectant or
insecticide. No one told the stu-
dents what was happening next,
so they all just waited on the
track, in the hot sun and blow-
ing dust! Some thought that
real army tents were coming
later, so they waited. Finally,

"EXPERIENCE"






DORIS BURKETT



MTAX COLLECTOR
My years of experience working with two tax collectors has
"l. r" given me the knowledge and understanding of the tremendous
responsibility of the tax collector's office. With this knowledge I
S. am an efficient steward of taxpayers dollars and assure that the
REVENUE is collected with accountability, disbursed and
| S available to the taxing authorities for the services we need.
S '1 The Tax Collectors Office is a business for the STATE,
.' COUNTY, AND TAXING AUTHORITY, collecting, managing and
disbursing MILLIONS OF DOLLARS EACH YEAR AND is the
only locally elected official that their service affects almost every
citizen, YET runs the office very efficiently on a very limited
budget and still provide these services to the public. THIS IS
QUITE AN UNDERTAKING AND REQUIRES MANY HOURS
OF PLANNING AND ORGANIZING.

"SERVICE" according to Webster Dictionary is "WORK
DONE OR DUTY PERFORMED FOR OTHERS". The Tax
Collectors office serves many citizens in a year. These services
do not only depend on the elected official. It depends on many
things; the budget given to you by the BCC, the number employees you can employ within that budget,
available space, and the safety of your employees.
It is my goal and duty as Tax Collector that each transaction is completed according to Florida Law,
this protects the CUSTOMER, THE COUNTY, AND THE TAX COLLECTORS OFFICE from legal action
that may result ,if not completed correctly.
THE TAX COLLECTORS OFFICE IS REQUIRED BY FLORIDA STATUTES TO BE A COLLECTION
AGENT FOR:
*Dept. of Hwy. Safety and Motor Vehicles
*Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission
*Florida Dept. of Revenue
The State regulars and monitors every transaction completed in the Tax Collectors Office.
The fees for these transactions are set by'the State of Florida.
IN THE ABOVE AGENCIES WE SERVE 21,000 CUSTOMERS A YEAR.
The Tax Collectors Office is required by FLORIDA STATUTES TO COLLECT PROPERTY TAX FOR
THE COUNTY, SCHOOL, CITY AND NWFWM. I have been responsible for collecting, disbursing, and
balancing the tax roll since 1994 with no discrepancies or errors.
THE TAX COLLECTORS OFFICE SERVE ABOUT 12,000 PROPERTY OWNERS A YEAR.
Money for these agencies is accounted for daily; reports printed,and deposits balanced to the penny
before we go home at the end of the day. We are audited yearly by the State of Florida and the County
Auditor. THE AUDIT FOR THE TAX COLLECTORS OFFICE SPEAKS FOR ITSELF WITH ACCURACY
AND INTEGRITY.
THE TAX COLLECTORS OFFICE IS NOT REQUIRED BY FLORIDA STATUTES TO BE A
COLLECTION AGENT FOR THE DIVISION OF DRIVER LICENSE. This service also depends on the
many things I stated above. In a year the Tax Collectors Office served over 4,000 Driver License
customers coming from ALL SURROUNDING COUNTIES, This put a tremendous burden on the. MAIN
TAG OFFICE AND CRIPPLED OUR ABILITY TO EFFICIENTLY SERVE THE PEOPLE OF CALHOUN
COUNTY in the effort to perform duties of the Tax Collectors office that is REQUIRED BY FLORIDA
STATUTES. With the great number of DL customers added to customers in the other departments, tax
and title customers were waiting a long time to do a transaction that takes minutes to complete.
Because of the lonq wait many CALHOUN COUNTY RESIDENTS were going to surrounding counties
for their personal and business needs, resulting in our county losing revenue. THIS WAS TAKING
DOLLARS OUT OF OUR COUNTY.
I made the decision to discontinue Driver License until could reorganize and TRY to bring the service
back in a different location. THIS TOOK TIME, IT DEPENDED ON RELOCATING THE PROPERTY
TAX DEPT. INTO THE MAIN OFFICE AND THE APPROVAL OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY
COMMISSIONERS.
Driver License is renewed every 6 years. The State does not require that you go to a DL office in
person to renew your license, unless there is a problem. You can renew by MAIL OR THE INTERNET.
If an eye exam is required your eye Doctor furnishes a completed form that is mailed along with your
renewal. You receive your license by return mail.
I AM SORRY IF I CAUSED A HARDSHIP ON ANYONE! THAT WAS NOT MY INTENTIONS. I have
continued to move forward with much criticism with reorganizing to serve everyone in a more timely
efficient manner so that the wait in the tag anrd title dept. would be just a few minutes instead of 30
minutes and BRING DOLLARS BACK INTO OUR COUNTY. We can now offer the service of Driver
License to Calhoun and Liberty Residents in a different office. I am very fortunate to be able to hire J.D.
Godwin of Calhoun County to work in the Driver License Dept. He has worked in the Marianna DL
Office for six years. This made it possible to offer Driver License MONDAY, TUESDAY 'AND
WEDNESDAY open from 8:00 until 4:00 (closed for lunch 12:00 1:00 only in the DL office). THERE IS
NOT ENOUGH DL CUSTOMERS FOR THE DL OFFICE TO BE OPEN FIVE DAYS A WEEK.
HOWEVER SHOULD THE NEED ARISE I WILL OFFER DRIVER LICENSE SERVICES FULL TIME.
I am very proud of what the Tax Colleqtors Office has accomplished. This could not have been
possible without a very hard working dedicated staff, I appreciate them very much. As you can see, the
Tax Collectors Office provides SERVICE for and is accountable to all the above agencies. This is a
tremendous responsibility which requires knowledge and understanding of the office.
I AM THE ONLY CANDIDATE THAT HAS WORKED IN EVERY POSITION IN THE TAX
COLLECTORS OFFICE. DUE TO MY RESPONSIBILITIES IN THE OFFICE I MAY NOT GET TO VISIT
WITH EACH OF YOU. I WOULD LIKE TO ASK FOR YOUR VOTE AND SUPPORT AUGUST 26, IF
RE-ELECTED 1 WILL CONTINUE TO WORK FOR EFFICIENT TIMELY SERVICE FOR ALL THE
PEOPLE OF CALHOUN COUNTY.

Bound for state tournament at Cypress Gardens


Calhoun


The AAA All-Stars were celebrating last week when they captured the district championship title.


wins district title


BY KIM HORNE
Congratulations, to the 2008
AAA District 5 Champions!
Well, all went well and we were
able to continue playing till the
end.
In last week's article we left
you with the hope that we
would win against Quincy on
Tuesday night. This group of
guys came out ready to play!
The Calhoun County AAA
came out and scored a total
number of 19 runs. They held
the Quincy AAA to 1 run.
The 19-1 win set the table to
face the Liberty County AAA
All-Stars again on Wednesday
night for the first of two possible
games to determine the cham-
pionship. Liberty County would
have to beat us twice as we
were going into this game unde-
feated. After a very intense
game against a very worthy
Liberty County AAA team, the
Calhoun County AAA pre-
vailed with a 4-2 win. Both
teams were ready for this bat-
tle, and a battle it was. It was a
0-0 game after 2 1/2 innings.
Liberty County took a 1-0 lead
in the bottom of the 3rd.

Co-Ed church

softball league
is organizing
The Liberty County
Recreation Department is
attempting to set up a Church
Co-Ed Softball League for the
months of July and August.
Interested teams should call
the Recreation Department at
643-2175 by noon Monday
June 30.
If enough interest is shown
an organizational meeting will
be set up to determine rules,
entry fee, etc. and we will try to
get this league going.


Calhoun County answered by
scoring 3 runs in the top of the
4th inning. Liberty scored
again in the bottom of the 4th
inning making the score 3-2
Calhoun. Nothing changed
until the 6th inning where
Calhoun tacked on 1 more run,
making the final score 4-2.
After all was said and done the
Calhoun County AAA All-Stars
swept the tournament!
We won 5 games accumulat-
ing 89 total runs scored and
allowing our opponents to score
only 5 runs throughout the
tournament. Now that we are
through with the district tourna-
ment, we are looking forward to
the AAA Dixie Youth State
Tournament. Opening cere'-
monies will take place Friday,
July 4th, in East Lakeland at
Cypress Gardens. We will play


our first game at 2:00 pm CST
against the District 7 champion
on Saturday, July 5th.
We appreciate all the faces
we saw at our district games,
the community support was
great! We also want to say, for
those of you who have given of
your time, or have even given
money to help us make this
journey possible THANK
YOU!! There are not enough
words to express our gratitude.
The Calhoun County AAA also
wants to say GOOD LUCK to
the Calhoun County AA team
who is traveling to Paxton on
Friday, June 27th, for their
opening ceremonies. They will
face South Lake at 3:00 pm
CST on Saturday, June 28th.

Iraqi kids enjoying soccer





balls from Calhoun County


BY DAVID CREAMER

Hello from Iraq!
Just wanted to follow up with
everyone about the soccer balls
you sent to my wife, Lisa, who
sent some of them to me in
Iraq. They were received and
have been given to the Iraq
Police.
To everyone in Blountstown
and the surrounding area that
helped out with the soccer drive
for the children in
Iraq...THANK YOU!!! I. wish
you could be here to see the
smiles on the children's faces
when we patrol their neighbor-
hoods. We usually do foot patrol
for a couple of hours in the
neighborhoods with the Iraqi
Police and whenever we get a
chance we give away the soccer
balls you all have provided. The
children here love them, as it is
their national sport kind of like
baseball is for us.
You have personally provid-
ed a means for the Iraq Police
to fill a small part of the gap
between the community and
the police. Tob better understand.
on what a large scale your con-
tributions are helping ponder
this: Imagine living in a world
where the police were widely
working for Saddam and there
was no working relationship
between the citizens and the
police. I am not talking about a
spontaneous misunderstanding,
I am talking about the police


Pictured above are some of the children who received soccer balls, a military police unit, some Iraq
Police with the AK 47's, and Blountstown's own David Creamer on the far right. "When we work together
like this out in the community we are called a PTT, or Police Transition Team," David reports.


stopping your vehicle and
demanding cash, taking all of
your personal belongings, and
suspects were literally tortured
for confessions. Basically, the
type of bad things we see on TV
or read about in history books.
The new Iraq Police have
changed their ways and that is
part of my mission here, to help
bridge the gap. We work hard
to get the new police in the
communities and to let the citi-
zens know when the police are
in the area they are there to
help and to protect. Our mis-
sion here is to build solid rela-


tionships between the citizens
and the communities.
Even in the states, I have
been proud to do this type of
work from 1996 when I began
my law enforcement career. We
all know that a few soccer balls
will not save the world, but let's
face it, if we can put a smile on
the face of a few of Iraq's chil-
dren then maybe that child will
carry on those smiles into adult-
hood. Little things we do now
will make a huge difference in
the future.
Again, to everyone who
helped out, thank you for your'

Stones of Calhoun County




are among area's pioneers


BY SHIRLEY STONE

A Calhoun County history
book is being prepared and you
are invited to share your story.
This week, Shirley Stone pro-
vides a glimpse into the Stone
family history in our area.
The Stone family is related
to many other pioneer families
in the area.
Related families are Yon,
Hansford, Wood, Sellers,
Hagan, Belle, Davis, Adams,
Bartlett, Adkins, Bryant,
Jordans, Edenfields, Carr, Lott,
Clark, etc. They populated and
developed all the towns in that
area and along the Apalachicola
River.
As far as we can tell, the
land was settled as early as
1814 by Henry Dessex Stone
but he moved his family from
Montgomery, Alabama, in
1818. Interestingly, his son
David Cruger was married to
Lucinda Yon in 1818, just
before they left. She was the
daughter of Ellen Lundy
Hansford Yon,( the sister of Dr.
Tyus Lundy Hansford and the
wife of Dr. Jessie Yon).
David Cruger's son, James
Bennett settled in St. Joseph,
buying the land there for 6
acres for 5 cents(6,011acres),
amounting to 11 miles of water-
front property,and going inland
to Wewa. It was later inherited
by his son, Terrell Higdon
Stone.
David and Lucinda's bed is
now in the home of Senator
Trammell.
Judge Stone had 14 sons and
one daughter. He enlisted the
aid of President John Quincy
Adams for funds for the
Territory of Florida. He died in
1840 and did not see
Statehood.
Dewey's father owned large
parcels of land from East Bay
Bridge towards Mexico Beach
as did the Davis family and the
land down to the Park site, was


owned by the T.H. Stone fami-
ly. It was all taken to build
Tyndall Air Force Base all
waterfront land.
We are trying to get the Iola
Cemetery land declared a his-
toric site.
Dewey Stone is gr-gr-grand-
son of H.D. and gr-grandson of
Dr. Tyus Lundy Hansford and
Silas Wood.
Andrew Jackson, in the War
of 1812 enlisted the aid of
Indian Negotiator, Judge Henry
Dessex Stone of Montgomery,
Alabama. He was formerly
Judge in Milledgeville, Georgia,


where he held a passport to
cross ~ the Cherokee Indian
lands'. Judge Stone promised
the Ipla Indian Chief that his,
land would always be known as
"Iola". In 1814, Stone was given
that land and the title of
"Colonel" for his help in Indian
removal. He brought his family
to reside in 1818.
He buried- his wife,
Elizabeth Hansford Stone, in
Marianna and returned to poli-
tics in 1826. He served on the
Florida Legislative Council and
was the first elected President.
He enlisted funds appropri-


ated for six lighthouses, a road
built from Pensacola to
Talahassee, then to Jacksonville
and built the second Capitol
building.
His sons and grandsons
served on the Florida
Constitution Committee. He is
buried in the, now neglected,
Iola Cemetery, with many other
pioneers.
His land was recorded on
Blountstown, Calhoun County,
Plat Book I, Page I.
The T.H. Stone State Park is
named for his great grandson,
Terrell Hidgon Stone.

something has to
happen to restore balance. Results:
Catastrophe!
The same is true in the life of a nation.
Historical change may appear to take place
rapidly, but the actual earthquake is made up
of long accumulated strain.
The same is true in the nature of man.
Crises do not arrive suddenly in our lives.
They are the result of what we have been
doing, thinking, wishing for, for many years.
Maeterlink once said, "Nothing ever
happens to a man which is not of.the nature
of himself." Take a good look at the stress
and strain of your own personal earthquake.

Earthquake aftermath continued


around 4:30 when nothing had
happened, the students began
re-building their tents and mak-
ing preparations for night-time.
There was a bit more organiza-
tion this time much needed!
Chad and Vicki were out late
trying to help the students build
better tents. Chad had a roll of
duct tape that he used to patch
holes in the tarps. We got
Matthew to sleep, and prayed
that he'd have a better night
than previous nights where he
frequently woke up yelling and
thrashing around. We had one
pretty good sized tremor during
the night.... I'm starting to get
used to them.

Saturday, May 17th
Chad could sense that I was
getting frustrated with things
around me, so he took Matthew
out to play. Having some Quiet
Time was a wonderful thing for
me! God spoke to me that
day.... reminding me that in
spite of my frustration, He was
really being good and gracious
to me! We had food, water, and
shelter, and were alive, That is,
after all, all that we need! I
should be filled with joy because
of the provisions of the Lord in
our lives. I also took to the Lord
my tears and sadness. We knew
that the semester was suddenly
ended. There'd be no more offi-
cial interaction with the stu-
dents, and that we'd need to
prematurely leave this place we
loved. We cried tears for our
unfinished work; tears for the
destruction here both by the
quake and the pillaging stu-
dents; tears for the death in the
mountains all around us. I felt
God telling me that I need to
look beyond my own needs and
fears and use this opportunity
to show love. I received His
grace to get out of my private
little place and interact with the
students and share in their bur-


dens. By this time,

NOTICE PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE (07.02)
1st Public Hearing Notice
The Town of Altha is considering applying to the
Florida Department of Community Affairs (DCA)
for a Small Cities Community Development Block
Grant (CDBG) of up to $600,000. These funds
must be used for one of the following purposes:
1. To benefit low and moderate income persons;
2. To aid in the prevention or elimination of slums
or blight; or
3. To meet other community development needs
of recent origin having a particular urgency
because existing conditions pose a serious and
immediate threat to the health or welfare of the
community and where other financial resources
are not available to meet such needs.
The categories of activities for which these funds
may be used are in the areas of housing, neigh-
borhood revitalization, commercial revitalization,
or economic development and include such
improvement activities as acquisition of real
property, loans to private-for-profit business, pur-
chase of machinery and equipment, construction
of infrastructure, rehabilitation of houses and
commercial buildings, and energy conservation.
Additional information regarding the range of
activities that may be undertaken will be provided
at the public hearing. For each activity that is pro-
posed, at least 70% of the funds must benefit low
and moderate income persons.
In developing an application for submission to
DCA, the Town of Altha must plan to minimize
displacement of persons as a result of planned
CDBG activities. In addition, the Town is required
to develop a plan to assist displaced persons.
A public hearing to receive citizen views concern-
ing the community's economic and community
development needs will be held at Altha Town

Monday,- May 19th
Most of the students woke
up early during the time on the
field. I guess they wanted to get
a head start at the water line, or
start making fire to cook their
breakfast. We always lay in
"bed" as long as Matthew was
sleeping, and enjoyed the quiet


time. This morning I was snooz-
ing off and on a bit, trying to
make the best use of the calm
quietness. Suddenly (around
7:00) we heard someone out-
side yelling, "Wai jiao zai nar?!"
(Where are the foreign teach-
ers?) It was the Wenchuan
police, and he had trouble find-
ing us since we had switched
tents. Chad recognized the
voice from the day before and
figured that they had come
again to try to get us out. The
man was frantic, saying that
we'd go on the helicopter, but
we had only five minutes!!! We
quickly grabbed sleeping
Matthew and our bags and ran
out. What a way to wake up!
We stopped at our apartment to
get our suitcases. Chad said, "I
saw the size of the helicopter
yesterday, and I think that we
could take two suitcases on
there. I'm gonna try anyway."
So we loaded up (with Vicki and
Claude) and made our way'
back to the landing pad. Again
we waited for the helicopter to
land. I began talking to some
local farm people that had gath-
ered there to watch. They said
their home had been destroyed,
but they were OK saying this
with a smile. I was humbled by
their acceptance of the situation
when they lost so much more
than we did. Another lady there
was hauling compost into her
garden for her, life just kept
going and things needed to be
done.
Soon a military helicopter
landed and the people there
told us to rush out and get on.
The blades were still going and
kicking up such dust! I was
pretty nervous about running
up in that condition... but they
were pushing us forward. As we
were waiting there in that dust
and noise, the door of the heli-
copter opened up and several
soldiers jumped out. They
yelled at us, "Get back, away
from the helicopter!" So, again
we were pushed, frantically, to
where we had originally been.
An Army general stepped off
and began talking to our school
leader about us, and then he
said, "They can't. ride on this
helicopter this is only for the
military. They'll have to wait for
a civilian helicopter." We were
told to wait out by the road. We
hauled all our things over to the
gate and sat down to wait again.
I was about to crumble emo-
tionally. It was too much rush
and wait panic and anxiety.
For the first time in a while, I
cried. I sat there in the dirt,
with Chinese people standing
around watching. Matthew was
also crying because Daddy had
told him that we were going to
ride on that green helicopter
(when it landed) and now he
wasn't going to get to. My hands
were shaking and I was saying,
"God, I just can't do this any
more."
We had a few snacks (since
we hadn't had any breakfast)
and waited. All of a sudden the
general walked up to us and
whispered, "Nimen gen women
yiqi qu!" (You and we will go
together.) I still don't know what
happened if someone pulled
some strings, or if he just felt
sorry for us. We didn't ask any
questions, just jumped up and
quickly got on the helicopter
before they changed their
minds. It was rather large, so
there was room for us all to sit
on ,the bench seat along the
length of the helicopter. The
general said that they were fly-
ing to Mian Yang, and from
there we'd get a bus or some-
Sthing to Chengdu. We were fine
with wherever. The helicopter
flew along the road, for the most
part, so we were familiar with
where we were. It was the first
time we had a chance to see
other places that were hit by
the earthquake.. There was
LuoBoZhai the rumor had
been true: flattened. Maoxian


not too bad. Here and there a
small village that was
destroyed, but then others in
the next valley that were fine.
We circled around Bei Chuan
several times for them to take
pictures and observe. It really
was destroyed! It was a neat,
but very sad way to leave the
mountains flying overhead and
seeing what was left of some of
the places that we loved. I
wanted to savor the moment
and fully say good-bye..... but
my emotions were shot and
instead I just felt dull, tired, and
'flat'.
We soon landed in Mian
Yang and were surprised to see
a beautiful van waiting there for
us on the runway. The Army
had called ahead and arranged
for a transport to take us all the
way to Chengdu. What a
thoughtful touch! We drove the
two hours to Chengdu, where
we were greeted by our dear
friends here. We spent the
afternoon showering, resting,
and calling our family for the
first time. I can't tell you how
wonderful it is to hear your
loved ones' voices after an event
like this! We had dinner with
many friends, and then headed
of for bed (a real one, this time!)
It worked out so well that some
friends were traveling at the
time and told us to use their
empty house!
It took Matthew a while to
settle down in a new place, but
he finally got to sleep. We were
so tired and crashed into bed.'
How wonderful to have a soft
bed and a pillow! We were
awakened 30. min. later by a
friend telling us that he'd heard
thereimight be a big tremor that
night and that many people
were going outside to sleep. We
should do whatever we felt was
best. Chad came back to the
bed and we lay there discussing
the situation. I felt so confused -
in my tired mind, we had left
the place where the earthquake
was. This was supposed to be a.
safe place. How could there be
tremors here?! Neither one of
us felt a push to get out -
whether it was from God or just
fatigue. I said, "I just got into a
real bed, and I don't want to go
sleep on the hard ground again.
I don't care if the building falls
down on me!" But to be wise,
we packed a bag and slept in
our clothes. Nothing ever came
of the rumor, and we slept well.
Since Then
We began processing every-
thing and ended up with a lot
more questions than answers:
What should we do now that we
are here 'in Chengdu? Should
we go home early or stay here
and try to help? What can we
do to help? Why were we res-
cued when there are so many
others who have it worse than
we did? Will we ever get to go
back to Wenchuan? In the first
few days after we were here, we
spent many hours on the .phone
- people calling from every-
where, wanting to hear our
voice and going through e-
mail. We had so many letters in
our in1box, and we were able to
begin piecing together what
must have been happening in


the lives of our family and co-
workers here while we were
'camping in Wenchuan'. We felt
overwhelmed with love and
care.
There were more tremors -
which shook me up again. I
dealt with (am still dealing
with) a lot of fear in letting
Chad leave me alone in the
house for a bit. I formed my
mind's thoughts and plans
around "if' there was .another
big tremor, would this be a good
place to be/ what would I do
with Matthew / should I run
down the ten flights of stairs to
get out of the building? God is
working in my heart so much in
taking away fear but it is also
just a conscious effort on my
part to trust and not be afraid.
We had an OB check-up in
the days following our arrival.
We were so happy to hear that
the baby's heartbeat was strong
and the Dr. didn't notice any-
thing wrong.
The students were able to
begin leaving the college about
3 days after we left. Their bus
ride was about 25 hours long,
since they had to use roads that
were open and go the long
route! They all ended up in
Chengdu and Chad received
the news on Friday that they
were beginning to arrive at two
local campuses both close to
where we were! He went over
and was able to meet them all
as they drove in. He got to see
many of his students, and a few
came to 'our' house for showers
and some food before getting on
a bus again to go to their home-
towns. It was a busy few days
for us, but so healing as we got
to have some closure on saying
good-bye.
Chad began volunteering
full-time with an organization
offering relief and aid to earth-
quake victims. His talents are
being used there, and it's fulfill-
ing to him to be able to help. I
began going to the hospital to
visit patients mostly earth-
quake victims. Some days are
better than others, and I can't
always communicate a lot
(many of the people affected by
the earthquake were rural peo-
ple who often speak the local
dialect), but I pray that God
will communicate to their
hearts my love and concern for
them.
We have felt overwhelmed
by the outpouring of love and
concern for us over this time. I
pray that no one else needs to
go through an experience like
this but for everyone, I pray
that they can feel the love and
support' of so many people
'around the world, as we did.
We plan to return to the
States on July 1, 2008, one
month earlier than our original
date. It will be difficult to leave
this place that we love, but we
are very ready to be with our
family and friends again!' We
are grateful for the opportunity
to experience life in China,
including this extreme circum-
stance which bonded us to so
many Chinese people.

The County Record, JUNE 25, 2008, Page 16


Tony Davis cont'd


stresses he never signed the
report and never admitted to
the allegations against him. As
a college student, he didn't
even think to ask for an attor-
ney.
"The only thing I'll ever
admit to is walking in, catching
[my girlfriend] sleeping with
my roommate, and I slapped
her. Was that slap wrong? Yes.
I'll take that to my grave," says
Davis, adding that, as a college
student, he made an immature
decision. "I would take a differ-
ent approach now that I'm 35
years old."
As for the accusation that he
threatened to throw her off a
balcony, he says that was com-
pletely false.
"Her dorm was on the top
floor and, being kids, we all
used to stand on the balcony
and spit off. We played around
and would pretend to push each
other. She and I would actually
sit right there on the steps when
we wanted our privacy because
she shared a dorm with three
roommates," Davis explains.
On the night in question,
Davis says he and his girlfriend
were on that balcony, but he
insists he was definitely not try-
ing to kill her. "I was playing
like I was pushing her off and
she let out a laughing type of
yell. Her roommate came out
and she gave the police most of
their information." When asked
about the alleged attempted
rape, Davis says it never hap-
pened.
As far as his relationship
with the former girlfriend Davis
points out, "We dated and are
still friends to this day."
After the simple battery
charge, Davis was suspended
from UF for one semester. "I
decided to move on and get a
fresh start," he remarks, adding
that he signed with the
Canadian Football League, but
could have returned to UF after
the semester ended. Instead, he
played football for the Las
Vegas Posse, then basketball for
Chipola College and football for
North Greenville College in the
NAIA League.
Had the incident in April of
1994 never happened, Davis
believes he would have become
a professional athlete. "That
situation changed the course of
my life," he says. "You're talk-
ing about a young man who
could have played for the NFL


or the NBA."
Davis says what could have
destroyed him wound up mak-
ing him' a better man because it
led him to a relationship with
God. "[God has] reshaped and
remodeled my life," he
remarks. "My objective is to
give credit to Him. What I real-
ly want people to understand is,
for what I've had to overcome,
don't be upset with me, just
give me an opportunity."
School Superintendent
Mary Sue Neves and BHS
Principal Duane Barber both
believe in Davis and expect him
to do an outstanding job.
"Duane has really spent a lot
of time checking on references
and with the Department of
Education. He's done his home-
work," says Neves. "He feels
like this man, this coach,
deserves a chance. He made
some poor decisions Wvhen he
was young, but based on my
principal's recommendations
and checking references, I'm
backing my principal. The
board has approved to hire
Tony Davis."
When the Department of
Education initially denied
Davis' application for teacher
certification a year ago, he
appealed and was told the
denial was based on the 1994
allegations. They settled the
case with him two months ago
with a letter of reprimand.
Principal Barber says he has
since been issued a temporary
certificate, allowing him time to
complete three courses. His


major is in business administra-
tion and the courses will certify
him in physical education.
Barber tells The County
Record Davis received glowing
recommendations from. officials
at schools where he was previ-
ously employed. He is excited
about the plans Davis has for
the BHS basketball program.
"We have had a very high
turnout of kids," he notes. "I
think there's an excitement and
buzz in the gym that hasn't
been there in a long time. Some
of the kids are not used to work-
ing this hard and they are
accepting his challenge. He's
committed and he's passionate.
I think he's going to work them
harder than they've ever been
worked before."
Davis, who will also serve as
an assistant football coach, is
confident he can make a differ-
ence in the lives of his players.
"I've coached these boys for
three days and I would just
about bet my life on it that, if
you asked them, they'd tell you
they've learned more [about
basketball] in the last three
days then they have in five
years."
By sharing the details about
his past, Davis is hoping to
finally put it all behind him and
focus on leading young athletes
to success. "If we are supposed
to be the Christians we say we
are, get me off the cross. We've
all had our share of
problems...it might not be my
problem, but you've had 'a
problem, too."
