CRIME


Woman


jailed for


stealing


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor


A Liberty .County .woma4i
was arrested last Tuesday for
allegedly breaking into a vehi-'
cle, stealing a woman's credit
cards, and using then at area
businesses.
Candis Carolin Shuler hal
been charged with burglary of
a conveyance and fraudulent
use of a credit card.
According to 'the Liberty
County Sheriff's Office, Sgti
Steve Swier investigated a
report from a couple whd
advised someone entered theit
vehicle and stole two bank
cards from a wallet. The vehi-
cle was parked in their drive-
way and showed no signs of
forced entry. A purse, that had
contained the wallet, was locate
ed and it's contents had been
scattered on the passenger
seat. Thi iman reported notic-
ing his front door motion light
on around 1:30 a.m.
A check of the couple's
bank records revealed-one of
the cards had been used at the
Bristol Exxon around 4 a.m.
and again at the TA Travel
Center in Marianna, 'along
with Walmart in Marianna.
Video surveillance :tapes were
obtained from two of the busi-
nesses with a woman in her
mid-20s shown making the
transactions and driving off in a
silver Pontiac.
Liberty County investiga-
tors. thought the subject could
be Shuler. A cashier from one.
of the businesses later picked
Shuler from a photo lineup.
During an interview,. Shuler
allegedly confessed to entering
the couple's car and stealing
the cards. She admitted to pur-
chasing $53 in fuel from. the
Exxon store, along with $222
worth of cosmetics and other
items from Walmart., She then
returned to Walmart a few
minutes after her initial pur-
chase to buy a couple bathing
suits with one of the stolen
cards. She said she also pur-
chased fuel at the TA Travel
Center, then tossed the cards
out a window while traveling
on Hwy. 90.
She was booked into the
Liberty County Jail and
released pending., court.

Dear Editor,
On behalf of our Board and
entire staff, I want to thank
Blountstown Main Street for
the beautiful additions to our
hospital. As a result of tlfe won-
derful "patio" areas at both
sides of the main entrance, our
appearance has improved sig-
nificantly!
The areas are very nice,
attractive and add a special
touch to the hospital. We've
"already received rave reviews
for the upgrade in our appear-
ance. Visitors are really enjoy-
ing them and are adding their
compliments.
A special thank you goes to
Ms. Doris Traylor for her hard
work and dedication to this
project. Her extra effort is
greatly appreciated. She was
certainly the key player in see-
ing this wonderful project
through to completion. She is
truly a great friend of this hospi-.

ful to her. ".
We are most thankful for the
special consideration of Main

And we don't believe the guy
who said they found Bigfoot i

they have photos, DNA sam

quite right here.

Locals among cast of


Chipola's 'Bus-Stop'


MARIANNA-The Chipola
College Theater is in full
rehearsal for the dramatic com-
edy, "Bus Stop," which opens a
four-day run, Nov. 6.
Chipola Theater director
Charles Sirmon recently cast
local actors in the' following
roles: 'Brenna Kneiss' as- -Elma,
Dianna Glaze as Grace, Aven
Pitts as Will, Kyndall Covington
as Cherie, Nathan Houser as'
Dr. Lyman, Aaron Moore as
Carl, Garrett Brolund as Virgil
and Ben Grande as Bo. Keith
Watford and Sarah Martinez
are the Stage Managers. The
behind the scenes crew includes
Haley Barfield, Stephanie
Lawson, Courtney Corbin,
Kylee Shores, Sarah Lovins,
Austin Pettis and Kristina


Lopez.
"Bus Stop" is set in a howl-
ing snowstorm with a busload of
weary travelers holed up ,at a.
roadside diner. A nightclub
singer named Cherie (played by
Marilyn Monroe in the movie
adaptation) has been kid-
nappedby'a young cowboy who
is ready to sling her over his
shoulder and carry her, kicking
and screaming, down the aisle.
As a counterpoint to the
romance, the cafe owner and
the bus driver at last find time
to develop a friendship of their
own; a middle age scholar
comes to terms with himself;
and a young waitress also gets
her first taste of romance.

Chipola Theater, call 718-2227.


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor

A star was born in Calhoun
County back in 1919. .
Thelma Peair Pippen was an
ordinary girl who lived an
extraordinary life., When she
was barely an adult, she decid-
ed Blountstown was' too small
to hold all her dreams. '
"Thelma ran away," says her
first cousin, Olivia Vickery, who
wasn't born yet when Thelma
made her move toward star-
dom, but grew.up hearing sto-
ries about her. "Her mama did-
n't know where she was. One
day, she was reading a maga-
zine and saw she was modeling.
That's the only way she knew
she was alive."
Thelma's mother, Flossie
Montford Pippen Landing, was
a sister to Olivia's mother, Pearl
Montford Tucker. For years,
they would learn from occasion-
al phone calls what was hap-
pening in Thelma's life.
Sources say she began her
career designing clothes for a
New York City dress firm
before moving to, Los Angeles
and landing an MGM contract
in 1941 under the stage name
Patricia Dane.
Kinard native Phillip Pitts
was recently searching for a
classic movie to watch when he
stumbled upon a film featuring
none other than this Calhoun
County girl. His curiosity
piqued, he began researching
the starlet from his hometown.
"Patricia made 13 films for
MGM and and continued in TV
until around 1955," Pitts
.


reports. "In 1942 she was
named by Photoplay magazine
(which today would be like
People magazine) as the most
promising new starlet,of 1942.'
Dane caught the attention of
famous bandleader Tommy
Dorsey, who described her in
his autobiography as "tall and
slim, with chestnut hair and
flashing licorice eyes." The pair
eloped to Las Vegas on April 8,
1943. As a wedding gift,
Tommy reportedly bought his
bride a new Lincoln
Continental convertible.
Shortly after their nuptials,
Dane was shooting a Red
Skelton comedy, I Dood It, fea-
turing Jimmy Dorsey's band
with Tommy having a cameo
appearance. Jimmy reportedly
wasn't a fan of Dane and was
said to have dated her before
she and Tommy met. A few
years later, while presenting a
birthday cake to Tommy at the
Indianapolis Theater, Jimmy
shoved the cake in Dane's face,
leading to a fight between the
brothers.

Tommy and Patricia report-
edly separated days before the
release of their movie, The
Fabulous Dorseys, but soon rec-
onciled with a second honey-
moon in Miami. The two even-
tually divorced, but
Patricia/Thelma kept the dia-
mond ring with the initials
"T.D." that was given to her by'
Tommy. It now belongs to her
cousin, Olivia.
It was the mid 1970s when
Thelma made a call to her
mother in Blountstown. She


was broke and needed money to
get home. The last 20 years of
her life were spent in Calhoun
County where she lived what
many would describe as an
eccentric .existence. Shd would
often share her stories from her
Hollywood life as she stopped in
local stores to buy cigarettes on
a regular basis. Her smoking
habit led to lung cancer and her
death on June 5, 199.5. She was
laid to rest at Pine Memorial
Cemetery' under the name
Thelma Pippen Byrnes Mrs.
Thomas Dorsey.


"Her movies are still played
from time to time on Turner
movie classics and one can'find
them on their website whdn a
movie will be next played by
using the keyword, Patricia
Dane," says Pitts. "In her films
she starred with Clark Gable,
Humphrey Bogart, Lana
Turner, Bob Hope, Dorothy
Lamour, Red Skelton, and
Lena Home, just to name a few.
Among the titles are Grand
Central Murder, Johnny Eager,
and Joe Palooka in Fighting
Mad.

BMS Tigers defeat th


Franklin Co. Seahawi


The Blountstown Middle
School Tigers defeated the
Franklin.County Seahawks last
Tuesday night by a score of 44
-8.
The game, which was origi-
nally scheduled to be played in
Franklin County, was moved to
Bowles Field because the new
school does not have lights at
their field yet.
The Tigers enjoyed the
home field advantage by taking
control of the game early on.
The Tigers scored quickly and
often in the lopsided victory.
Several players contributed to
the scoring for the Tigers.
"We played pretty good
Tuesday night considering our
opponent was rather weak,'"
says coach Barber. "Often, you
play down to your opponents,
tonight I thought we did a lot of
things pretty well arid didn't let
it get too sloppy. Our defense
played outstanding by shutting
out the Seahawks for most of
the game. Our offense took
advantage of turnovers and put
the ball in the end zone when
they got the opportunity. I was
pleased with the overall out-
come of the game other than
the fact that we lost our starting
quarterback for the season.
Hunter Jordan went down in
the first, quarter with a broken
hand and Chesten Goodman
came in and finished the night
at quarterback. 1ast week we
losi our backup quarterback
and safety, Taylor Mauck, for
the season due to a broken foot.
Hunter was a team leader and
our vocal leader so finding
someone 'to step up and fill
those shoes will be what we will
work on this week."
S Bobby Andrews was named
the offensive player of the game
and Kenya Baker was named


the defensive player o


Lady Cats battle



tough opponents

ALTHA, SEPTEMBER
8-Altha Middle School Lady
Wildcats began their second
week on the volleyball court by
hosting Tolar Middle School.
The A Team (1-1) dropped
their first game,11-25, and,
although the Lady Cats battled
hard in the second game, they
came up a little short in the
end, 22-25.
Altha's Dina Vaughn led her
team with 3 service points and
an ace. Each of the following
Wildcats contributed 2 service
points: McKenzie May (had 2
aces), Chelsea Murphy, Rena
O'Bryan, Mary Sewell, and
Brianna Yon.
The B Team (0-2) lost both
games to Tolar, 13-25 and 9-25.
Jessica Wills was the Top Lady
Cat in scoring with 5 points and
Deanna Griswold came away

Although they misfired on
their first 5 serves, the JV Lady
Wildcats (3-1) were within a
point, 6-5, of the 3A Florida
High Lady Seminoles.., After
that the visiting Lady Noles
scratched out a 3-point lead and
handed the Lady Cats their first
loss of the season, 16-25.
It was the same story, second
verse in Game 2: their first 6
serves were out of bounds and
that helped Florida High build
a 17-6 lead. The Lady
Seminoles went on to win, 25-
13.


"If we had gotten our serves
in, we had a good chance of
winning both,games," remarked
Coach Carylee Sewell after the
e match. "We lost our focus a lit-
tle bit but we'll get it back."
Ariel Folsom led the way for
k the Lady Wildcats with 4 serv-
f t ice points, including an ace.
Kelsey Rehberg added 2 points
)f the '


and Kimberly Wiltse had a
point.
o Without the services of one
of their starting teammates,
Cessna Folsom, who was recov-
ering from an insect bite in a
local hospital, the varsity Lady
Wildcats (1-3) hung tough with
3A Florida High before falling
16-25, 25-14, and 25-15.

West Gadsden thumps Tigers, 37-10


One glaring statistic stood out
after the Blountstown Tigers lost
their second consecutive game to
West Gadsden at Bowles Field
Friday night: TURNOVERS.
The Tigers fumbled seven times
and lost three. One of those was
scooped up and returned for a
touchdown. Two Tiger passes
were intercepted and one of those


,was returned for a touchdown.
"Wq gave them '17 points off of
turnovers," a dejected Greg
Jordan said Monday. "It was 10-
10 at halftime then we fumbled
and they ran it in to make it 17-
10 which stood until the start of
the fourth quarter. They beat us
for two touchdown passes and
intercepted one of ours and


returned it for a touchdown in the
fourth quarter. We can not con-
tinue to commit turnovers and
beat the teams we have on our
schedule," Jordan stated.
The 37-10 loss to West
Gadsden follows the 34-7 loss to
Marianna the week prior. In both
games, the Tigers played well for
three quarters despite the


turnovers. "We had five starters
who were hurt but still gave a
good effort. We need for our sen-
iors to step up and provide some
leadership for our young players
late in the game," Jordan noted.
Blountstown ran 57 offensive
plays in the game, but netted only
1.7 yards per play entering in 3
sacks for losses of 32 yards and 11
tackles for losses totalling 31
yards. The Tigers managed only
97 net yards of offense with 63 on
the ground and 34 through the
air. "Our offensive line missed
some blocks and they've got to
get better," Jordan added.
West Gadsden ran 38 offen-
sive plays averaging 5.8 yards per
play. West Gadsden rushed for
105 yards and passed for 117
yards. "Their quarterback was a
fourth year starter and he had a
'strong arm. When he had time,
his receivers were beating us,"
Jordan stated.
The Tigers trailed 3-0 after a
first quarter field goal by West
Gadsden. Early in the second
quarter, a. snap over the WG
quarterback's head sailed into the
endzone resulting in a safety for
the Tigers and the score was 2-3.
Later in the second quarter,
*Jason Money blocked a WG punt
and Jeremy Watson scooped it up
and rambled into the endzone for
a touchdown. Quarterback
Heath Bailey dove into the end-
zone for two points and the Tigers
were ahead, 10-3.
West Gadsden's fast quarter-
back tied the game with a 54 yard
sprint down the sideline late in
the second quarter and PAT tied
the game at 10-10:
Early in the third quarter,
Bailey was stripped of the football
and West Gadsden picked it up
and' returned it 45 yards for the
go-ahead score.
For the Tigers, Darrin Huff
had some good runs gaining 73
yards on 15 carries. Malcolm
Ivory added 29 yards on 12 car-
ries and quarterback Bailey was -


-33 yards on 12 attempts.
Bailey completed 3 of 6 pass-
es for 34 yards and two intercep-
tions. PJ Buggs was 0-2 passing.
Defensively, Jeremy Watson
led the Tigers with 6 tackles
including a half sack and 1.5 tack-
les for loss. Chase Johnson hadl 5
tackles, 1.5 sacks, and 2.5 tackles
for loss. Jason Money had 4 tack-
les and 2 sacks followed by
Malcolm Ivory with 4 tackles.
Tony Maynor had 4 tackles. 1
sack and 2 tackles for loss.


Darrin Huff and Cavon Cox each
added 3 tackles.
This week the Tigers will
travel to Port St. Joe for another
tough opponent. The Sharks lost
to Florida High in their opener
and were open last week. "As
always, they have speed and are
big on the line," Jordan noted.'
"Number one we have "got to
eliminate the turnovers and num-
ber .two we have got win the bat-
tle on the line of scrimmage on
offense and defense."

BY BLOUNTSTOWN TIGER

HEAD COACH GREG JORDAN


Keep youi heads up, move
forward, get ready for Port St.
Joe. That will be the message
whenri the players return to
practice this week. Believe me
we will address the obvious
problems you saw last week
such as not taking care of the
football with six total turnovers
and poor tackling especially in
the fourth quarter. And there
are many other things that went
into the game that you may or
may not have witnessed. ,-
But ..this group .of .Tigers,
ready or not, had to pay the
price for some of the teams of
the past as far as scheduling is
concerned. There is no school
with a 400 student enrollment
around here that has an open-
ing five game schedule even
close to what this team has to
face. With the two losses to
Marianna and West Gadsden,
the next three are PSJ,
FL.HIGH and WAKULLA. So






FLORIDA PUBLIC
U T IL IT IE S


you can see it doesn't get any
easier for the next three weeks.
If you have any personal
contact with these players your
message needs to be positive
and supportive. This team has
played as HARD as they possi-
bly can play. Yes, they have
made a lot of mistakes but that
is a sign of inexperience and
young players taking some
lumps. This team will improve
and get better. We want to' win
every game we play, and we
pretty much did for awhile.
Like everything in life, football
success runs in cycles. Noiv
we're one of those teams fight,
ing each week for survival.
These players need your
support now more than ever. If
you want to see a good, compet-
itive-high football game, get in
your car and drive to St.Joe this
Friday. Kickoff is set for 7:00
CST. See ya there!! GO

JIMMY



MARSHALL


for Superintendent

of Schools

I am Jimmy "Jim" Marshall and I am a candidate for
Superintendent of Schools in Calhoun County.
I am running for the position of superintendent and not'
against Ms. Neves or Mr. McClellan. I believe that our
schools are doing a good job, but they can do a much
better job when it comes to resources and accountability
to the people of Calhoun County.
As superintendent, I will strive to keep all stake holders
involved in our children's education. I do not believe that
one or two people should decide what is best for our
children and taxpayers. I propose to have an education
over-site board that,will work closely with the district office,
schools, and taxpayers of the county. This board will be
made. up of one teacher from each school, the PTO
president -of each school, and a -member from the
community selected by each district school board
member. The committee will be chaired by the assistant
superintendent. I would also like to have a central hiring
committee that would be responsible for the hiring of
highly qualified individuals. This would ensure that each
and every person who applies for a position in Calhoun
County would be given the same opportunity. Our school
district needs to hire the best qualified and certified
teachers it can.
I am against consolidation for our schools. I believe that
our school system the way it is now is the best fit for
Calhoun County. If we consolidate I feel that we would be
doing Blountstown and Altha a great disservice and
remove the community pride they now have. The people
of Calhoun County deserve better and I will strive to make
the school system here one that we will be proud of and
others will want to emulate.
I ask fdr your support and vote on November 4th. If you
have any .questions, suggestions or ideas and would like
to talk with me, call me at 674-5807. I will be knocking on.
doors and asking for your support over the next few
weeks. I know that I can not reach everyone, but I do plan
on seeing as many people as possible. If you really want
me to visit with you, call me at the number above.
Thank you and God bless each one of you.

Be a good
jfjil forgetter. Life is too
short to remember that
which prevents one
from doing, his best.
"Forgetting the things
M that are behind, I press
forward," said a brave
Tim Adams old man in the first
Funeral director century. The successful
person forgets. . The
person who rises above
pettiness or meanness forgets. He is too
busy to let little things disturb him. He
forgets quickly, and forgets easily. If any
person does him wrong, he keeps sweet...
It is only the small person who cherishes a
low revenge. So, be a good forgetter.
It is difficult to empty our hearts and
minds of hurt. Yet forgiveness is the
constructive answer to hurts. It is the
answer because it alone heals. True
forgiveness means that we definitely
assume a new attitude toward a person.
When attitude is changed, it will not be
long before emotion is changed also; and
when attitude and emotion have both
changed, then and only then, have we
truly forgiven.

IT, BUT ALSO THE PERSON WHO

Turning From The Sabbath
Isaiah 58:13 & 14
What is the Sabbath? In my
text the Lord speaks, of it as "My
Holy Day." It's a day that belongs'
not to man, not to the world but to
God. It's a day He has made
,sacred. It's a day set apart in a
most solemn way. It's therefore, a
day we should observe with all
holy awe.
The expression, we are not to
turn. away our foot from the
Sabbath, means that it is so holy a
thing that we are not to trample
upon it, we are not to violate it, we
are not to ride roughshod over it.
We must approach it reverently as
a holy day.
The fourth commandment also
emphasizes the same holiness of
this blessed day. It is the only
commandment that uses the world
holy and gives us the best reason
for its observance. If a person has
perfect love he will not try to do
away with any of the command-
ments that form the basic princi-
ples of all right living and right
thinking.
The true Christian will not cast
disgrace on the Christian sabbath,
nor seek to minimize its just and
righteous restrictions. If we are
bathed in perfect love we will keep
the whole.law. We will see to it
that God is kept supreme, that we
bow not before any graven image,
that we do not take the name of the
Lord our God in. vain, that we.
honor our father and our mothers,
that we do not kill, nor commit
adultery, nor steal, nor bear false
witness, nor covetanything.
The Christian Sabbath is a Holy
Day. We must never forget that.
Forgetting it, we will be lost in the
maze of endless evasions and
nicety's. Oh the peace and joy of
the Holy Sabbath. There is a differ-
ent atmosphere among those who

monitoring are an indicator of whether or not our drinking
water meets health standards. The City of Blountstown
collected 3 of the required 4 districtuion samples during

absent of total coliform, and the water is considered safe
to drink at this time.

What should .1 do?

There is nothing you need to do at this time. total
coliform bacteria are generally not harmful themselves.
Coliforms are bacteria that are naturally present in the
environment and are used as an indicator that other,
potentially harmful, bacteria may be present.

What happened? What is being done?

Due to an oversight, the proper number of samples was
not collected. The proper sampling procedures have
been reviewed in order to avoid monitoring and reporting
violations in the future.

For more information, please contact Jarries A. Woods at
(850) 674-5488. Please share this information with all
the other people who drink this water, especially those
who may not have received this notice directly (.for
example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools,

Maggie is a two-year-old Coon
Hound. (In the old days in the
South, everyone had a coon
dog on the porch.) She's partial
to men and her idea of a "real
man" is one that hunts, fishes,
drives a truck, (A BIG truck is
even better), who would take
her with him. She loves "riding
shot-gun." She probably has
some immunity to rattlesnake
bites since one bit her bad. Call

Lady Cats cont'd-


O'Bryan added 3 points.
Altha's junior varsity (4-1)
refocused their sights and shot
down North Florida Christian's
Eagles, 25-3 and 25-19.
It took the Lady Wildcats
only 15 minutes to do work on
the Lady Eagles in the first
game. Nikki Schamens' 11
straight service points, includ-
ing 6 aces, left no doubt about
who would win this bout.
Altha's Ariel Folsom opened
Game 2 with 5 straight service-
points to give the Lady Cats a
6-2 lead and NFC never got
closer again.
The leading scorer for the
Wildcats was Folsom with 14

contributed 11 points and .6
aces. Amy Tharp posted 5
points and an ace. Both Kelsey
Rehberg and Sharlyn Smith
added 2 points and an ace.

the Lady Eagles that they were
in for a fight. Altha fought to
stay ahead until NFC tied it at
9. Moments later the Lady
Eagles would open up 23-14
lead on their way to a 25-16
victory.
Game 2 saw NFC misfiring
on their first seven serves and
Altha had an 11-7 lead. The
Lady Eagles pulled within a
point 17-16 before Altha
stretched it back out to another
4 point lead, 21-17. However,
the Lady Wildcats let another
one slip through their hands as
NFC came out on top, 24-26.
North Florida Christian
jumped out to a 12-6 lead in
Game 3 but Altha battled back
to pull with 22-16 due to Emily
Brooks 3 service points.
Christy Simmons' 5 straight
service points tied the game at
23 and gave the Wildcats' fans
hope of a victory. However,
that hope was shattered as
NFC prevailed, 25-23.

scoring with 9 service points,
including 6 aces. Both Tammy
Johnson and Christy Simmons
chalked up 8 points. Tammy

12-Altha's junior varisty and
varsity Lady Wildcats traveled
to Sneads to take on the Lady
Pirates last Friday.
The JV Lady Pirates' played
like the JV Lady Cats (4-2)
stole something from them as
they reeled off 14 straight serv-
ice points enroute to 25-11 win
in the first game. Altha settled
into Game Two and fought to
stay close to Sneads' before tak-


. ing a 19-17 lead. With three
straight service points, Ariel
Folsom tied the match at a
game apiece and she gave Aftha
a 25-19 victory. In the deciding
game, Sneads handed Altha's
junior varsity their second loss
of the season, 15-11.

ace) scored 3 points. Putting up
2 points apiece was Nikki
Schamens, who had an ace, and
Kelsey Rehberg.
Facing their second district
foe in as many weeks, the varsi-
ty Lady Wildcats played better
team ball but left Sneads with a
0-2 district record as they fell to
the Lady Pirates.
At the beginning of Game
One Altha (1-5; 0-2, 2-2A) fell
behind quickly, 10-2, and never'
recovered as they went on to
lose, 25-15. Games two and

Do you have room at your home for a new pet? There are many
animals who have been abandoned, abused, and neglected and
are in need of loving families. The Calhoun County Humane Society
is providing shelter for several animals that would make wonderful
pets if given the chance. Please consider adopting one today. Call
674-4075 or check out their website at www.calhouncounty
humanesociety.net to see the animals in need of homes and learn
more about how you can help.
The goals of the Calhoun County Humane.Society include:
V Providing reduced cost spay/neutering and transport for ani-
mals
V Establishing a network of foster families to provide shelter to

V Promote pet identification for noticiation of owners in the event
of injury or when a pet is lost
