CELEBRATION


FIREWORKS SHOW





THURSDAY NIGHT



Free event from 7-9 p.m. at Sam Atkins Park


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Calhoun County will start the
Independence Day celebratiofi a little
early with a spectacular fireworks show
set for Thursday, July 3, at Sam Atkins
Park, from 7 to 9 p.m.
The event, sponsored by RiverTown
Community Church for the third
straight year, is completely free. Guests
will be treated to. complimentary hot
dogs, chips, and sodas, along with a
concert by the RiverTown band. Music
will include all your favorite hits, with
the best of the oldies and some new
tunes.
Lisa Yoder, who is coordinating the
event for RiverTown, says, "This is an


event for everyone! We're anticipating
another big crowd this year, and it's not
just our local community we are hear-
ing from people in surrounding counties
who are making plans to be there.
Wherever you find a place to sit, it's
the kind of event where you get a few
hours to visit with your family, your
friends, or even someone you may not
have seen in years. So, it's exciting for
us to have our communities come out
and 'enjoy an evening together in the
park."
She. adds that the Blountstown
Greenway will be open during the fes-
tivities and security will be provided if
you decide to enter the park via the
trail. Flashlights are highly recom-
mended for the return trip. For those


driving directly into the park, consider
carpooling since a large crowd is antic-
ipated.
Inside the park, the layout is basi-
cally the same as last year with the
concert going on in one of the fields
next to the concession stand. On anoth-
er ball field inside the main park, inflat-
able games will be provided for the
kids. The fireworks will be launched
from the high school baseball field at 9
p.m.
So bring your lawn' chairs and blan-
kets, gather your family and friends,
and get set for a night 6f fun.
Remember: Please do not bring any
alcohol or personal fireworks into the
park.

Calhoun County residents
were saddened to learn of
the sudden death of former
School Board member
Columbus Jackson who
passed away last Thursday
morning.
An EMS team responded
to Jackson's River Street
home where he was pro-
nounced dead from natural
causes. He was 59.
"Columbus was a good
school board member." for-
mer School Superintendent
Darryl Taylor tells The
County Record. "He was
faithful in attendance and
always stood for 'the right
thing. He tried to do what


was best for the system and
the kids in the county."
Ask most any teacher in
the school district and they
will likely tell you Columbus
Jackson, who served from
1988 to 1992, was one of the
best school board members
this county has ever had.
Many recall his frequent vis-
its to each of the five local
schools where he volun-
teered, asked questions, and
listened.
"He truly cared about the
students and what was best
for them," says
Superintendent Mary Sue
Neves.
Jackson was also knov.'n
in the community as a
Vietnam veteran. He was a
Lance Corporal in the


Marines, receiving many
honors, including the Purple
Heart.
"It was such a shock, but
he was ready," says his
daughter, Shinena Peterson.
"He didn't want to get
old...he -never wanted to be
dependent on anybody. He
went out like he wanted to I
believe. He was a good per-
son, everybody just really
loved him."
Jackson %will be laid to rest
today. Wednesday, July 2.
following a 2 p.m. service at
the Blountstown High
School Auditorium. He
leaves behind six children,
10 grandchildren, and a host
of extended family and
friends.

*SunnerutLL


is here at last! *

Summertime is officially here and folks of all ages are
finding all sorts of ways to beat the heat. This group of 0
youngsters recently cooled off in the garden at the
Panhandle Pioneer Settlement where the sprinkler system
surprised them with plenty of splashes. Located inside
Sam Atkins Park, the Settlement is home to the summer
Cabin Patch Day Camps where children can learn all 0
about old fashioned traditions such as quilting, baking,
and gardening, along with other fun activities and loads
of croft projects. The camp is led by Dona Dunnj, along
with her sister, Dresa Leonard.


To the Editor:
I was thinking that a great
- series of articles for you to work
on for the newspaper would be
about past county personalities.
For example, I don't know if
you remember him or not, but
there was an old (when I was
young) black gentleman who
walked the town and was affec-
tionately known as "Sleepy"
-and "Walter." I've asked
around and no one knows what-
ever happened to him, but back
in "the day" everyone knew
'him. When you'd speak to him,
regardless of what you said he'd
always answer, "Fine, how are
-you?" I remember he would
always stop and sleep in the old
Ford place bay window. He
seemed to always wear the
,same clothes. The "rumor"
was he was shell-shocked from
battle in WWII, but as a WWII
:historian myself, there was very
few black front-line soldiers in
*WWII, so if he did see "action",
that's a story all in itself!
Another person to do an arti-
cle on would be the. elderly lady
who used to walk around town
'ini a short mini-skirt and had a
ton. Of make-up on. This was
another person everyone
always sa w. but few e'illy knew
anything about. I can't remem-
:ber what people called her,
:think it was Jewel, but I'm not


100% sure that was it). I would
see her walking the streets
behind the courthouse and
along River Street mostly. It
was always weird as a young
man to see this really elderly
lady wearing such a short dress.
There used to be a gas sta-
tion at the intersection were the
gas pumps are now next to
Halley's old gas station (where
the boat place is now). The
gentleman who owned the sta-
tion seemed to be very popular,
but he was the first person I had
ever met that was humped-
back. Man, this was a long
time ago, but I remember
always going there with my
dad.
There used to be a drive-in
movie theater in the woods
behind 'the log-cabin dentist
office. Some years ago I went
back there and you could still
find the "humps" in the ground
that you'd pull your car up on to
watch the movies. Someone
somewhere would have to have
some information about this.
I just have so many fond
memories of our town and com-
munity that so many young
people have hno clue about, and
so many older folks like myself
aren't clear about because of
time fading them away. A nos-
talgic return to these memories
through newspaper articles


xould seem to be enjoyed by
evervpne.
Thanks for considering!
Joey Peacock
Editor's Note: This is a
great idea, Joey! Okay, readers,
help us out. Do any of you have
information you can share on
any of these former Calhoun
Countians? If so, call Kelli at
674-5041 or email news@the-
countyrecord.net
To interested parties,
I would like to take a
moment to thank the City of
Blountstown and City Manager
James Woods for a job well
done. I observed the storm that
passed through Monday morn-
ing first hand through the win-
dows of Main Street Station
Restaurant. The wind gusts
must have been in excess of 50
mph. Just as I stated to my wife
that we probably were about to
lose power, we did. But to my
surprise, it was back within 2
seconds. Another lightning
strike seconds later produced
another power outage, but
again the power came back
within 2 seconds.
I have no doubt that the lack
of a long-term power outage is
due in great measure to the dili-
gent work of our City Manager

that such a storm would 'have

a long time.
Again, thank you all for your
hard work that has resulted in a
more stable, secure power grid

is one more reason why no one
should hesitate to choose
Calhoun County as an excellent
place to live, work and play.

Calhoun Co.


"AA All-Stars"


in winner's bracket at state


The Calhoun County AA All
Star team headed to the State
Tournament in Paxton this past
Friday. The AA team is made
up of 7 and 8 year olds. The
tournament is composed of
twelve teams representing their
districts throughout the state of
Florida.
The Calhoun County team
members are P-Tyreek Sumner,
C-Tucker Jordan, 1B-Taye
Godwin, 2B-Kevon Godwin,
SS-Kyle- Skipper, 3B-Jacob
Yon, 3B/C-Alex Buggs, LF/CF-
Mikell Engram, LF-Jace
White, CF-Gabe McClellan,
RF-Jaxon Ridley, and RF-J.C.
Williams. Calhoun County
Coaches are Manager/coach -
Terry Blair, Coach Eric
Anderson, Coach Gerry
Skipper, and Coach Jamie Yon.
The coaches and players have
had long practices for weeks


heading into the tournament.
The AA team is very grateful
for the generosity of the com-
munity that made the trip a
reality through their donations
and sponsorships.
Opening ceremonies were
held Friday evening and play
began on Saturday. The
Calhoun County team drew a
very difficult bracket composed
of defending state champ,
Sebring America, East
Lakeland and South Lake.
The Calhoun County All
Stars started with a Saturday
afternoon, game against South
Lake. The Calhoun County
team used a consistent rotation
of their 12 players to over-
whelm South Lake 13-2 in 5
innings. All 12 players hit and
fielded excellent to lead to the
decisive win. Sure handed first
basement, Taye Godwin,


received game Most
Outstanding Player.
That win brought an early
clash between 2 of the tourna-
ment favorites Sebring America
and Calhoun County. The
game was scheduled for a 3
p.m. Sunday start. Severe
weather with tornado warnings
and heavy rain delayed the
game several times. The
exhausting day lead to a 9:30
p.m. start. The Calhoun boys
moved from being huddled in
the men's bathroom to various
different shelters throughout
the afternoon. By the time the
game started the energy for
both teams was running high.
The game was finally played on
a soggy field with wet balls com-
ing out of the pitching machine.
The usual red hot bats of the
Calhoun All Stars were tapered
'by the erratic pitching of the
wet machine. Calhoun County
was the home team so the
Sebring team batted first. The
Calhoun All Stars made some
unusual fielding errors on the
sloppy and Sebring scored 2
early runs. Calhoun County
matched the two runs with two
of their own when they batted.
From there the defensive battle
was on.
Calhoun County and


Sebring ended regulation tied
3-3 after 6 innings. In the top
of the 8th Sebring scored 2 runs
to go ahead 5-3. It was do or
die time for the Calhoun team.
Kevon Godwin led off with a
single. He stole 2 bases and
was knocked in by Tyreek
Sumner. Taye Godwin then
brought Tyreek home with a
key hit to notch the score 5-5.
Jacob Yon then nailed a line
drive up the middle to bring in
Taye for a game winning score!
The defending champ Sebring
American team was stunned.
The .Calhoun team was ecstat-
ic! Game Most Outstanding
Player went to third base man
Jacob Yon.
The Calhoun County team
will have a bye on Monday
night and continue to play in
the winner's bracket on,
Tuesday night. The weekday
games are played in 'the
evenings. The championship
game should be played either
Wednesday or Thursday. The
drive to Paxton is less than 2
hours. Take 1-10 to DeFuniak
Springs and head north on
Hwy. 331 to Paxton. If you
can't make the drive, live
broadcasting can be picked up
on the internet at http://jock-

its valuable corporate partners
that allows it to assist with the
development of dedication,


leadership, responsibility, and
commitment in today's young
people," explains NHSRA
Executive Director Kent
Sturman.
"Youth are not only the
future of the equine business
but also the future of this great
country. There isn't a finer
group of young people than
those represented by the mem-
bers of the National High


*School Rodeo Association. It is
a pleasure for Teskey's Saddle
Shop to be able to make this
scholarship program available,"
comments Casey Cooper, cata-
log manager for Teskey's.

lines below for filing a petition for an administra-
tive hearing, or request for an extension of time

ceeding. Intervention will be only at the discre-

To my sister, who is both
mentally and physically chal-

Ryan Newman ready
to return to the scene
of his biggest victory

By RICK MINTER
Cox News Service
R yan Newman's trip
to Daytona
international
Speedway this week
ought to be a little extra
special. It will be his first
tune on the speedway
since he scored the
greatest triumph
of his racing ca-
reer by winning
the 50th running of
the Daytona 500 in
February
That race, hyped
even more than most
Daytona 500s because
of the milestone run-
ning, lived up to its
billing and more.
Newman and team-
mate Kurt Busch'
hooked up with the
white flag waving and
gave their car owner,
Roger Penske, his first
victory in the Daytona
500.
It also was the veteran
owner's first victory ever
in a points-paying race on
a restrictor-plate track.
Newman and Busch
won that race in a breath-
taking way Newman, who
hadn't won a race in two
years, wasn't even consid-
ered a serious candidate
for the victory until the.
final lap, when he used
the drafting help of Busch

the closing laps of the 2008
Daytona 500. Newman went on to
win the 50th running of "The Great
American Race" (below left).


to sail past Tony Stewart
entering Turn 3 for the
final time.
Surprisingly, he said it
didn't take long for the
significance of what he'd
done to sink in.
"I knew that about mile
500," he said. '"As soon as I
crossed the finish line, I
knew what we'd accom-
plished. All the hoopla af-
terward, I didn't under-
stand all that part of it,
but I knew the meaning of
the race as soon as we
crossed the finish line."
He said that even as
dramatic as the finish
was, he hasn't run those
laps over in his mind in
the months since.
"It's behind me," he
said. "It's on to the next
race. It's not that I forget
about it. I remember it
more than any other race,
but there are so many
things to do in the future
that you just log it into
the past."
The victory did give his
team a boost that lasted
for several weeks.
"It was the ultimate mo-
mentum-builder," he said.
"We already had momen-
tum toward the end of
last year team-wise,
morale-wise, speed-wise,
performance-wise at the
end, but [the Daytona 500
win] made a big differ-
ence for everybody at the
shop."
Unfortunately, as histo-
ry has shown, winning
the Daytona 500 doesn't
do much for a driver's
championship hopes, un-


less his name is Petty.
Only eight times in the
past 49 years has the driv-
er who won the Daytona
500 gone on to win the
championship. Richard
Petty is responsible for
half of those, and his late
father, Lee, who won the
firstfDaytona 500 in 1959,
another. The only others
to do it are Cale
Yarborough in 1977, Jeff
Gordon in 1997 and
Jimmie Johnson in 2006.
It looks as if Newman
will have to have a strong
string of finishes in the
next nine races or he
won't make the cut for the
Chase and compete for
the championship. He's
15th in the standings, 104
points out of the elite 12.
"We've been up and
d6wn," he said.
"Performance wise, we're
a top-10 ... maybe an
eighth-place car. You've
got to have reliability,
which we haven't had to
get into the Chase. We just
need to keep doing what
we're doing, only better.
We can't make the same
mistakes over and over.
"We've got some work
to do, but we're plenty ca-
pable."
Crew chief Roy
McCauley agrees.
"To make the Chase, we
know that we need to
score top-fives and top-
10s," he said in last week's
team release. "This is a
team that has the ability
and the desire to be com-
petitive and win each and
every week."


Young Carolina driver carrying on family tradition


By RICK MINTER
Cox News Service
When it comes to racing in the
Carolinas, there are few names more syn-
onymous with the sport than Pressley
The late Bob Pressley ruled the short
tracks around the Southeast in his day,
and his son, Robert Pressley followed
closely in his tire tracks before advancing
to NASCAR's elite divisions, where he
had an impressive career despite never
driving for any of the powerhouse teams.
He had 12 victories, 10 in the Nationwide
Series and two in the Craftsman Truck .
Series, including one at Daytona in his
first race on that circuit.
He started 205 Cup races and recorded
five top-5s and 11 top-10s. One of his best
runs came at Chicagoland Speedway in
2001 when he was runner-up to Kevin
Harvick in the Cup circuit's first visit to
that track.
Now, another Pressley, Robert's 19-year-
old son Coleman, is working his way up
NASCAR's career ladder.
In just his second full season behind
the wheel of a Late Model car, he's bat-

Speedway in South Carolina.
fling for the Whelen All-American Series
national championship. Most weeks find
him either atop the points standings or a
few points back. He already had seven
victories in the most recent standings.
He plans to make several Craftsman
Truck Series starts this season, advanc-
ing from half-mile tracks to 1.5-mile ovals,
gaining enough experience to be cleared


to run the full season beginning at
Daytona next year. He's already in the
driver-development progr-m at JTG
Motorsports.
The youngest Pressley has been racing
at many of the same tracks where his fa-
ther and grandfather once enjoyed much
success. His primary track is Greenville-
Pickens Speedway in South Carolina, and
he also competes at Hickory Motor
Speedway in North Carolina.
Just as his grandfather and father had
some rough moments early in Robert
Pressley's career, Coleman had to adjust
to his father serving dual roles father
and crew chief.
"When we first started, I thought I
knew it all," Coleman said. "But I real-
ized that Dad knows more than I thought
he did."
Although he's already thinking about
some truck series starts later this season,
he's being careful to not lose his concen-
tration on the immediate task at hand.
"Right now the focus is on winning that
national championship," he said. "I've got
the Pressley family name behind me, and
I want to bring it back to NASCAR."

OBSERVATIONS
Key story lines as NASCAR heads to Daytona.

Silly Season heats up early
NASCAR's Silly Season of driver changes or
at least speculation about them is in full swing,
with several top stars, including Tony Stewart and
Ryan Newman, pondering changes of employers.
Others, including Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards of
Roush Fenway Racing and Clint Bowyer of
Richard Childress
SPRINT CUP Racing, already have re-
T D signed deals with their

speculation that Newman could join him.

Kurt Busch stays on track... wins
The Lenox Industrial Tools 301 at New
Hampshire International Speedway was scheduled
to be one mile longer than past races at the Loudon
track. Instead, the race ended up being 17 laps
shorter than expected, and that made all the differ-
ence.
Kurt Busch, who hadn't been a factor all day,
stayed on the track during a late-race caution, in-
heriting the lead. Tony Stewart and the rest of the
faster drivers made pit stops and restarted 14th or
back. Then rain intervened before Stewart could
mount a charge, and Busch inherited his first vic-
tory of the season. Martin Truex Jr. played the
same strategy as Busch at the end of Sunday's race
at New Hampshire, and his fourth-place finish al-
lowed him to move up three spots in the points
standings to 14th.
Busch did even better, moving up four spots to
18th. He's 215 points out of the top 12. Truex is 104
out.
Kenseth moves into contention
After a lackluster start to his season, Matt
Kenseth, driver of the No. 17 Ford at Roush
Fenway Racing, has climbed into contention for
the Chase for the Sprint Cup, which begins after
nine more races.
In six races leading up to New Hampshire,
Kenseth moved from 22nd to 12th in the standings.
The top 12 after the Sept. 6 race at Richmond will
compete for the title during the final 10 races.
Kenseth dropped back to 13th after the rain-
scrambled finish on Sunday, but still is just eight.
points out of the elite group.


CATCHING UP WITH...


MARTIN TRUEX JR. I


Martin Truex Jr., driver of
the No. 1 Chevrolet for Dale'
Earnhardt Inc., recently partic-
ipated in a teleconference with
reporters, including Rick
Minter of Cox News Service, to
discuss his season:
On whether he'll return to
DEI next season or drive for
another team: "I'm not sure.
Right now we're working hard
with DEI to put some things to-
gether for next year. It's taken a
little bit longer than expected
for both of us, both sides ... on
my side and on DEI's side.
We're just trying to get through
the details. For me, it's just try-
ing to get comfortable and be
comfortable in the position I'm
in, what they're doing and the
direction they're headed for the
future, so I can make sure that
we can be together for a long
time."
On what he's looking for as


he negotiates a driving con-
tract: "Good direction for the
future of a championship. I
think there are some things
going on with our race cars and
other teams that I'm not quite
sure what's happened with
them. The performance hasn't
been as good as it has been, for
whatever reason. We've had an
OK season. We've run really
well at times, and we've run not
so well at times. We've had a lot
of bad luck spread throughout
the season, especially the begin-
ning part of the year, which has
got us in this position right
now."
On whether he would be
better off taking an aggres-
sive or a conservative ap-
proach in his effort to move
into the top 12: "We need to be
aggressive. We need to get all
we can. We really dug ourselves
a hole up until this point, [but]
we've got a great team, and I

think we're more than capable
of being in the Chase. But it's
all about results, and we
haven't got them."
On his comfort level with
his role at DEI now that Dale
Earnhardt Jr. is no longer
there: "I feel comfortable with


where I'm at and what I'm
doing. Not a lot has changed as
far as the way I go about doing
my job, which has been good.
The cars haven't been running
quite as good as we wanted
them to. I've taken a lot of that
on my shoulders and trying to
get them better, trying to get in
there and work with the right
people and help them figure out
what's wrong."
On having Earnhardt Jr. as
an opponent instead of a
teammate: "It's not a whole lot
different. We're still really good
friends. We talk about racing
still. We talk about other stuff.
It's good to see him having the
success he's having with the
changes that he made."
On the controversy that
seems to dog DEI: "It's always
been under a tough microscope.
Whether it was before Dale Jr.
or after Dale Jr., it's always
been that way. A lot of the peo-
ple are harsh in their opinions
of DEI and what they are and
the job they're able to do. I
think the perception of DEI is
not as good as what it really is.
That's been tough at times."

Look for your electric


bill to start rising soon


Just as drivers are feeling
pain at the gas pump, electric
utilities are facing similar
increases with natural gas and
coal, the two most commonly
used fuel sources for power gen-
eration. As a result, Florida
Public Utilities (FPU) has
requested the Florida Public
Service Commission (FPSC) to
appropriately adjust consumer
costs. It is expected that cus-
tomers will see an 11.1 to 11.9
percent increase, starting with
August's monthly electric bill.
"Our suppliers underesti-
mated how high the wholesale
cost of energy would go," stated
Don Myers, general manager of
FPU's Northwest Division.
"It's important that our cus-
tomers continue to conserve
energy in their everyday lives.
While we have little control
over rising fuel costs, we can


make changes in our energy
consumption to lower electric
bills."
In recent weeks other elec-
tric utilities, including Florida
Power & Light and Progress
Energy, have announced
increasing rates. The FPSC,
which regulates Florida's utility
companies, ensures that fuel
costs are passed directly to cus-
tomers with absolutely no profit
going to the utility company.
FPU compiled the following
list of energy-saving tips to help
customers lower their electric
bills. For more detailed infor-
mation, including a free energy
audit of your home or business
by an FPU conservation repre-
sentative contact the local office
at (850) 526-6800.
Ten Steps to Conserving
Energy and Controlling


Electric Costs
V Keep the thermostat as
high as comfortably possible
during the summer months. A
good rule of thumb is to set your
thermostat for 78 degrees. By
the same token, each degree
below 78, can cost 5-6 percent
more for cooling energy.
V Fans cost less to use than
the air conditioner; rely on
them as much as possible.
V Keep windows shaded
from direct sunlight whenever
possible. Blinds and curtains
will block the sun and keep
your house cooler. Awnings or
porches are effective ways to
reduce heat gain in the summer.
V Set your water heater to
120 degrees or the "Low" set-
ting to save energy. If your
dishwasher does not have a

County Courthouse was demolished last week. The structure was home to Bill Corbin's law

Humble Yourself
Proverbs 6:3
I heard about a fellow who
wrote a nasty letter to his
father. In the office was a
coworker who advised him not
to send it because it was written
in a fit of temper. But the man
ignored his advice, sealed it,
and asked his friend to mail it
for him. The friend simply put
it into his pocket and kept it
until the next day.
The following m rnrung- the
one who had been so 'angry
arrived at work looking very
worried. "George," he said to

Sm-ember
S Did you ever think what
causes an earthquake?.
Well, it is simply the
result of accumulated
strain. Things
geologically get out of
Tm Aams balance; first a little, and-
at last sufficiently that
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.
Our Thought to Remember: Look deeply
kito your past -you're likely to find your
future.

George said, "I took the

Hospital administrator expresses appreciation



Elected officials help secure new equipment


BY RON GILLIARD
Hospital Administrator
I mentioned in last month's
article the great news that we
would be getting lots of new
equipment soon to go along with
a lot we've recently purchased.
Let me expand on that a little.
While discussing this, I
would like to thank
Congressman Allen Boyd and
Senator Bill Nelson for the
wonderful support they've pro-
vided to this hospital. Both
have been tremendously helpful
in getting a lot of the money for
equipment through the United
States Department of


Agriculture (USDA) through
grants and low interest loans.
And State Representative
Marti Coley and Senator Al
Lawson have been invaluable to
us with their support at the
state level. State grants are of
tremendous benefit to us.
We're truly blessed to have
such wonderful elected officials
helping us out. A huge thank
you to Congressman Boyd,
Senator Nelson, Representative
Coley, and Senator Lawson!
Congressman Boyd's staff in
Tallahassee was also a life saver
for us this past year in another
area. We had a tough time with
Medicare over some audits,


their with-
holding all
payments
due to us.
These s e
audits were
for claims
filed several
years ago,
before the
hospitala 1l RON GILLIARD
w a s
regained by the local Hospital
Association.
The, outstanding efforts of
Mr. Boyd's staff were instru-
mental in our finally getting this
mess straight and Medicare


paying us again. Without their
efforts, we would have been in
serious trouble. We are most
thankful to Congressman Boyd
for this. He is truly a friend of
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital.
Back to the equipment, we
will soon be purchasing a lot of
items that will greatly improve
the care we provide to you. For
example, we will be replacing
our old radiology unit with a
new state-of-the-art machine.
We'll also soon have a new
portable x-ray unit as well as a
new ultrasound machine. All of
these items will add to our abil-
ity to provide superb diagnostic
services to our doctors as they


care for you.
We're buying several new
beds. Some of them will be of
the type that allows you to be
weighed while in the bed. This
will be of wonderful benefit to
both our patients and our staff.
We also have new vital sign
monitors to assist our nursing
staff in serving you while an
inpatient.
We're getting a new microbi-
ology unit for our laboratory.
This will, again, help our doc-
tors in treating you faster. We
recently received a new "bi-
pap" machine to aid our respi-
ratory therapists in treating you
for breathing problems. All of


this equipment is, again, truly
"state-of-the-art."

'Kickin' It With Kids' contributes over 1000 miles in challenge
With the first half of the year completed, the goal of the Calhoun County Health Department's fitness
challenge 2008 in 2008 has already been met. Seventy-eight people reporting as teams or individ-
uals have reported their steps and miles. As of June 6, they have covered more than 3000 miles.
Participants have received a motivational book called "Walk Yourself Thin". The pictured team from Kids
Kingdom contributed over 1000 miles! They include (from left) Barbara Collier, Michelle Finch, Louise
Harrison, Magdaline Hand, Stori Granger, Vickey Harmon, Wendy Pitts, Annr Jourdan, and Julie
VanderMeer of the Health Department. The team is known as 'Kickin' It With Kids!' Rather than resting on
our laurels, the new challenge is to do it again. Exercise teams are challenged to keep moving, keep
reporting steps and miles, with the new goal of 4016 miles by the end of December 2008! To get
involved, call Julie at 674-5645.

a priority for the Chamber SUBSCRIBE
... ... ... ... ... ... ^ r. All


BY KRISTY HALLEY SPEERS

Part of the responsibility of a
Chamber of Commerce is to
foster education and lend sup-
port to programs that encour-
age business leadership and.
development. The Calhoun
County Chamber supports
workforce development that
enhances the quality of life in
our county.
Education was a priority for
many at the recent Visioning
2011 workshops that were
sponsored by the Chamber of
Commerce. Attendees identi-
fied extended certificated pro-
grams and leadership training
as possible projects of interest.
At the core of economic
development is the education
system that supports it.
However, today's workforce
demands are changing, and cer-
tification programs are leading


to higher paying jobs closer to
home. These courses require
students to complete a course,
then pass an exam to become
"certified" in a particular skill
set.
\ Today, nearly 80 percent of
new jobs being created deal
specifically with a set of techni-
cal skills that are needed, as
opposed to an extended'college
curriculum.
Our school system, as well as
local colleges, are on board with
the certification movement and
that is a benefit to our commu-
nity. Taking advantage of these
programs not only provides
careers for our young people,
but also helps our community
grow and change with the
times.
If you would like to work
with the Chamber's education
committee, please call or email


Kristy Halley Speers at I UUAYI
850/674-4519 or kristy@cal-
hounco.org.


Hospital cont'd


as the above clinical equip-
ment, we will also be getting a
new emergency generator,
assuring our hospital stays
operational regardless of any
power outages that may occur.
We are also upgrading and
repairing our heating and air
conditioning system through-
out the hospital. This will keep
you and our staff nice and com-
fortable year round. We will
replace many old units that
have been in use in the hospital
for several years
We recently got a big new
stove, a new ice machine, a
serving cart for our inpatient
meals, and several other new
items for the kitchen. Our
dietary staff is very proud of
these items since it all helps
them help you!
We just installed a new auto-
matic pharmacy dispensing
machine in our Emergency
Room. This goes along with
new stretchers, wheelchairs
and other equipment in this
busy area. all designed to serve


you better.
We're also upgrading our
"computer" side of the hospital
and are very excited about this.
It's unusual for such a small
hospital to be improving so
much in this area, especially
the ways we have planned.
And again, it's all designed to
improve the quality and safety
of the care we provide to you.

So, again, we are most
thankful to Congressman Boyd,
Senator Nelson,
Representative Coley, and
Senator Lawson for their great
support. Without it, we simply
would not be able to-purchase
all the wonderful new items
mentioned above. Their
efforts are allowing you to
receive top-notch health care
right here in Blountstown. And
at $4.00+ per gallon, we feel
that's a good thing!
If you have any questions on
the above or on anything about
the hospital, give me a call at
674-5411, ext 206.


Fishing rules cont'd-


new rules in response to public
requests for tighter manage-
ment of passive gear to reduce
the loss of fish and wildlife

applies only in fresh water.
Saltwater fishing is subject to
other rules.
FWC officials said the new
rule is particularly important
during current drought condi-
tions that have exposed ndmimer-
ous traps and baskets that have
been lost or abandoned but are
still catching and wasting fish
and are a hazard to boaters.
FWC officers will be work-
ing with fishermen to increase
awareness of the new rules and
enlist help in protecting
resources and promoting public
safety.
For more information, visit
MyFWC.com or call the
regional FWC office listed in
the telephone directory.
