fight against


Cancer. Such a simple word, yet so
powerful and complex. It is this multi-
faceted disease that has darkened the
doors of millions of people worldwide,
leaving them feeling alone and desper-
However, it is in that darkest hour,
upon the horizon one finds courage and
hope beckoning them on to a better
day., Out of that darkness come stories
of courage, stories of hope, and stories
of survival. Each year the Relay for
Life honors those who exemplify the
quality of mind and spirit that enables
ond to face difficulty with out fear and
those who through their tireless service
to their community make a positive dif-

Shirley Bateman never imagined
that a phone call from her daughter, a
nurse, would lead to the devastating
diagnosis of cancer. Shirley, a retired
schoolteacher, had always lived an
active, healthy life. Whether volun-
teering at church, working on her farm,
or helping friends in need, Shirley was
always there to lend a helping hand.
However in 2006, Shirley knew some-
thing was wrong when her daughter
called her after one of her check-ups.
The ncws was not good. Throat can-
cer. To many this diagnosis would be a
death sentence. But, Shirley, a true
fighter, would not ret the diagnosis get
her down. Despite her age and illness,
Shirley never gave into cancer. She

continued to live her life normally, .con-
tinuing to volunteer at her church and
helping others in need.
It was this courageous attitude dur-
ing her battle with cancer that led her
to form a Relay for Life team at her
church. In 2008 at the age of 73,
Shirley and teammate Lila Davis
worked effortlessly in coordinating a
church team for the 2008 Calhoun-
Liberty Relay for Life. Inspired by
Shirley, Lila encouraged her church to
get involved with the Relay for Life.
Their team, who had never been
involved in the Relay before, was com-
prised of the seasoned members of the
church. Lila went above and beyond

game leads

local man to

file lawsuit
News Editor
A Blountstown man has
filed a class action lawsuit
against a computer game com-
pany this week.
Brandon Gardner is suing
Electronic Arts, the company
that produces the game "Mass
Effect". In the complaint, he
alleges that, when the game is
installed, a second, undisclosed
program known as SecuROM
is also downloaded on your
"Consumers are given no
control, rights, or options over
SecuROM," Gardner states in
his complaint. "The program
cannot be completely unin-
stalled. Once installed, it
becomes a permanent part of
the consumer's software port-
folio." "
Gardner alleges the
California based game compa-
ny violated the consumer legal
remedies act, the copyright
act, and the unfair competition
law, as well as interfered with
use of his property. He is seek-
ing a refund for his purchase of
the game, along with damages
and legal fees.
Due to the potential num-
ber. of, class members in the
suit, the claim is estimated to
exceed $5,000,000. .

River Valley Marketplace

Fall was in the air in downtown Blountstown Saturday for the River Valley Marketplace spon-
sored by Blountstown Main Street. Held the first Saturday of every month in the greenspace
next to Wakulla Bank, the market features fresh produce, home baked goods, handmade
crafts, and original artwork. The produce offerings were a little slim this month with many fresh
fruits and vegetables still in the ground or on the vine. The next market is set for Nov. 1.


Fellow Tax Payers

Bailing out the struggling financial sector is not
the only place our tax dollars are being thrown.
I am sure you have opened up a letter from your
local Supervisor of Elections office to find your
sample ballot. My first impression was, "This is
nice." Then I started thinking about the
resources that went into this endeavor.

One printed envelope, one printed' letterhead
paper, one duplex printed legal size paper, one
household stamp, two inches of tape, and time
assembling. All of these things in bulk come to
a conservative estimate of $055 per mailing or
$4,657.00 in total.

This price is magnified when you calculate in
the effective cost per mailing. If only 30 50
percent of the public vote, then the effective
cost per registered voter is $1.10 per mailing or
$9350.00 in total. Wow! What a calculated, or
should I say not calculated, use of tax dollars.
The 30 50 percent of active voters will seek
out this information to inform themselves' about
what will appear on the ballot. The Internet, the
Supervisor of Elections Office, and even local
.papers are all cost effective alternatives to

Let's look for financially responsible ways to.
inform the public without wasting resources in
the process.

Fire Prevention Week kicks off

with dedication of new BFD truck

The Blountstown Fire
Department (BFD) held a ded-
ication ceremony Saturday
morning for their new fire truck
known as Engine 1.
The BFD was founded in
1910 with a "bucket brigade."
According to an old newspaper
article Fire Chief Ben Hall
found during the Centennial,
buckets hung underneath the
water tower that once stood
near City Hall. The BFD's first
fire engine, Engine 1, was pur-
chased after a fire at the Neal
Lumber Mill, near River.
Street. The Neal Lumber
Company recognized
Blountstown's need in 1927 and
paid for the purchase of a 1927
American LaFrance fire engine.
In honor of that donation
then, and the W.T. Neal
Foundation's contribution
toward this truck, the BFD has
named this. new fire truck
Engine 1. (If named using the
BFD traditional method, it

would be Engine 9, as it is the
ninth in their history).
"What absolutely blows me
away, is that Blountstown's fire-
fighters fought fire with buckets
for 17 years before getting a fire
engine!" says Chief Hall.
"Today, we have a tremendous
water supply here in the City,
and our mutual aid depart-
ments are blessed with large
tankers that can carry as much
as 6,000 gallons. I can't imag-
ine fighting fire five gallons at a
time." -
Chief Hall goes on to say,
"This new engine comes at the
perfect time in the life of
Blountstown. With all of the
new growth and development,
this truck is much more suited
to the needs of our City."
Technical details about the
truck can be found on the
BFD's website at (click
on "Apparatus").
Saturday's dedication cere-

mony was the perfect kickoff for
National Fire Prevention Week,
a time when firefighters remind
everyone to "Prevent Home
"Over two-thirds of all fire
deaths occur in residences, and
our goal is, to reduce that num-
ber by encouraging safe cooking
practices, using care when
burning candles or lamps and,
of course, checking the batteries
in your smoke detectors," Chief
Hall remarks. "If you do not
have a smoke detector in your
home, contact your fire depart-
ment and we'll provide" one
while supplies last."

FCCD Chapter 36, along
with the Blountstown Police
Department, will be having the
Haunted House again this year.
Our location has changed again;
this year we will be located in
the brick building beside
Helping Hands Thrift Store,
across from Snowden's
Surveying, on Pear Street.
Opening night is at dark on
Oct. 18 (possibly sooner...spe-
cific dates to be announced in

iting the haunted house should

the event will be held has a dis-

Jonas and Ava Moody were
a pleasant young couple start-

Ava mourned to have a child of

he decided he must find a way
to ease her pain.
They chose to adopt a small
child. But after only a few short
months, what was supposed to
be the answer to the end of
their suffering, turned tragic
when the child accidentally shot

Ava became mad, and with-
out Jonas' knowledge, began to
abduct young children and hold
them captive, hiding them in
-the warehouse. When Jonas
discovered what his insane wife
was doing, he was appalled. He
knew, however, what the towns-
people would dio to her if they

found out. So, as he still loved
his wife dearly, he decided to
aide her in her plan and keep
her dark secret.
After a number of years, of
committing these atrocious acts,
Jonas also became maddened.
With neither of them in their
right minds, they began to tor-
ture and terrorize the young-
sters. What started out as an
attempt to have a happy family

The County Record, OCTOBER 8, 2008, Page 4

______________S TO THE EDlITOR'

Dear Editor,
I am a life long resident of
Calhoun County and a member
of Westside Volunteer Fire
On Oct. 1, our department
was called to respond to a fully
involved house fire in our dis-
trict. When our 32 year old fire
engine arrived (which is held
together with spit, duct tape,
and prayer), it would not pump
water. If it were not for the
mutual assistance of
Blountstown FD, Nettle Ridge
VFD, and Magnolia VFD, the
fire would not have been extin-
guished. Our humble gratitude
goes out to these departments.
Our fire department has
been awarded a $250,000 grant
to replace this fire engine
because of it's condition, out-
dated equipment, and it being
deemed unsafe and unfit for fire
service. We are told as a condi-
tion of the grant that the truck
MUST be taken out of commis-
sion and CANNOT be sold to
another department for use.
Our financial responsibility for
the grant is to have matching
funds of $12,500.
Recently, The County
Record ran articles on the coun-
ty fire service and our chief was
interviewed and quoted in the
segments. After the articles
appeared, members of our fire
department were told by two
county commissioners that we
had better not expect the coun-
ty to contribute to the grant
match. -
Law enforcement and fire
protection should be top priori-
ties for the county commission-
ers. The county fire depart-
ments' budgets are being raised
from $3000 to $4000 this year.
This amount doesn't cover fuel
costs, let alone equipment and
vehicle maintenance, training,
equipment testing, utilities, and
new equipment. It is an embar-
rassment to attend state fire
functions when your county's
fire department funding is con-
sidered a joke.
County commissioners are
elected employees of Calhoun
County residents. They work
for us to help make our families
and homes safer. In order to
improve your fire protection
and your fire department we
must, as citizens, hold these
employees accountable for
4oing what is best for the people
of this county.

The richest country in the
world has run out of money.
While both the largest aquifer
and the wettest state in our
country is running out of water.
We are still using 178 gallons
of water per day, per person
and still creating massive
amounts of nutrient pollution.
Rape and Pillage Development
is still creating rapidly spread-
ing Urban Sprawl, covering two
thirds of the state. We are pol-
luting what is left of our water-
ways to the extent that we have
to set limits on the amount of
pollution that can be dumped
into our rivers.
We are still o promoting
unsustainable growth at an
increasing rate and our aquifer
is running dangerously low on
fresh water and all the while the
politicians are still talking about
what to do at meetings and
The latest and probably the
most important meeting
occurred last week: The Florida
Water Congress was organized
by the Century Commission for.,
a Sustainable Florida, a group
charged with recommending
reforms to the governor and the
Legislature. Dixie County
Commissioner Buddy Lamb

My 'Two Cents: This quote

about the Water Congress
results are from an honest,
straight-shooting man, whom I
highly respect. "We saw a lot of
feel-good modest suggestions
here, but nothing with any real
gravity," said Charles Lee of
Audubon of Florida.

I am working hard to win your
confidence and support to become
your next school superintendent. I
regret that I have been unable to see
everyone face to face and personally
ask for your support. I have to divide
smy time with teaching students,
supporting my friends and family,
affairs, as well as campaigning. As a
teacher,- I feel that students don't
care how much you know until you
show them how much you care.
I understand as a person that God
did not put in me the ability to always ...
make the right decision, but he did
'put in me the ability to make a
decision and then make it right. One of the main reasons for seeking this office is to try to help make
things right. I cannot make these important changes without your help and support. I need your backingin
this endeavor.
As a school district we mustmake every possible effofft i equip our students to be highly successful
- after they graduate. We must strive to offer as many dual enrollment and vocational classes as we can
successfully fund. The money we have just spent on architectural fees, high dollar raises, and any other
unneeded expenses could.have gone a long way to help all our employees and students in a much better
You keep hearing about the 4 A's and 1 B our school district received last year. I place my record of all
A's and B's, with a lone C, in comparison. The present administration had 2 C's and 1 D the other three -
years which has not been mentioned. However, the bragging rights should go to the teachers and
students. They are the ones that made it all happen anyway. The state grades our schools and the voters
grade our district accomplishments. Report card day will be on November 4. Let the people speak out.
Again I most humbly ask for your vote and support in this race. A lot of people are working very hard for.

Navy Seals come to BHS!
by Kurtis Mathis
Last Tuesday, September
30, the Navy Seals came and
visited Blountstown High
School. Also, Altha and Liberty
County High schools were pres-
ent. This event was held in the
BHS auditorium which was
filled with students whq were
really amazed and energetic
about these gentlemen who
came to talk to them about the
Navy Seals program. Students
were given the open opportuni-
ty to do push-ups and pull-ups
for the prize of winning a Navy
Seal T-shirt. BHS seniors were
very entertained about the visit
of the seals and they gained a
new appreciation for them.

The "Adopt-a-Tiger" pro-
gram here at BHS is a good
way for teachers and staff to
show their gratitude towards
sports, to show that they care
and support the players that
represent our school. This pro-
gram goes throughout the foot-
ball season every year and pro-
motes school spirit.
Mrs. Watford, BHS English
teacher, said she choose to
adopt a tiger because, "I want-
ed to show my support for the
football team. I think it's very
important to be supportive of
my students and their extra-
curricular activities."

Mrs. McGhee with her Tiger, Sophomore, PJ Buggs.

Mrs. Elizabeth Bennett,
Reading Teacher at BHS, told
us the following, "I think the
Adopt-a-Tiger program is bene-
ficial to both the teacher and
the student. I believe it encour-
ages the 'Tiger' to look forward
to game day. I enjoy taking
care of my Tiger on Fridays. I
can tell he looks forward to see-
ing me and seeing what's in his
treat bag! I'm glad that I can
give at least one or our 'Tigers'
a smile on game day!"
Alex Deason, a BHS junior
on the football team said the
following, "I think it's a great
program because it gives the
players and teachers the oppor-
tunity to get to know each other
The Adopt-a-Tiger program
has been going on throughout
many years and, hopefully, it
will continue on for many years
to come.

Mossy Pond VFD Auxiliary

It's almost Thanksgiving -
the summer went so fast and if
you're like me still didn't get
everything done. We had a good
summer out here in paradise
and looking forward to getting
busy on auxiliary work.
First, my neighbor has sev-
eral beautiful baby kittens and
she will have them spade or
neutered if you want one. Now
is the tithe to get that child a
pretty kitten and you won't
have to pay to have it fixed.
Now if you like cats and need or
want another, come and pick
one out before there gone. Call
Adele at 762-8793 or Linda
Now down to business, the
Auxiliary is having a chili cook
off on Oct.17 from 5:00 to 8 pm.
We are selling tickets for a $1
each or 6 for $5 for 2 drawings
giving away $50 Wal-mart gift
cards. You can buy the tickets
from any Mossy pond firefight-.
er. We are serving a bowl of
chili, soda, chips, and crackers
for $4, slices of cake or a brown-
ie for $1.
We will deliver within 2
miles of the firehouse for an
extra $1 per plate. There are
many people entering the con-
test so come out and get the
best chili. I
I'm sure you are know that
the Farmer's Market is the 1st
Saturday of the month and the
auxiliary is going to be set up
selling cake and whatever we
can get in the future. Our local
artist, Georgia Yaudus, has
donated some of her art work to
sell and all money goes to the
fire department. We, as
always, will take any donation
you have for us.
At this time instead of put-

ting my usual the most beautiful
person in I'm going to say very
seriously to read and pray and
prepare to vote this year. Find
out what a person thinks, is and
all about him. Remember, if you
wouldn't want him running your
life you might not want. him
running your country. Our.
freedom is so precious.
Thank you all for all your

support to Mossy Pond in the
past and we look forward to
seeing you in the future.

The fire meeting is the 1st
and 3rd Thursday of the month
from 7 to 8 p.m. Auxiliary is 6
to 7 p.m. the same night and
the crime watch is the last
Thursday of the month at 6:30

trip through the corn maze are
always the highlights of the day.

As most of you are aware, the Board of County Commissioners was mandated by
Florida Legislature to adopt a comprehensive plan prior to 1985. .The plan was
approved by.the Apalachee Planning Council and the Department of Community
Affairs and adopted in 1984. The intent of the Comp Plan was to provide
guidance for landowners and developers.
Since the year 2000, it has become a nightmare.
As a line item in the 2008/09 budget, the Board will be paying the ARPC $8500,
and if by request, the ARPC will provide assistance with the Comp Plan.

LSU at Florida

LSU seeks
In a game worthy of prime-time billing, the past two
Football Bowl Subdivision national champions will
meet Saturday night at Florida Field.
Although LSU proved in 2007 that a two-loss team can
hoist the cherished crystal football, the Gators can't afford
another slip after being upset by unranked Mississippi two
weeks ago. In addition to having an offense that has scored
on 17 of its 18 trips inside the red zone, Florida has history
on its side, as the home team is 7-0-1 in games pitting the
two most recent national champions.
Perhaps overshadowed by the success that Alabama
and Vanderbilt have enjoyed this season, LSU needs a vic-
tory to show the pundits that it is still the team to beat in
the SEC and a threat to win its third national title in the
past six years.
Records: LSU 4-0 (2-0 SEC West); Florida 4-1 (2-1 SEC
East). Coaches: LSU's Les Miles (66-27); Florida's Urban
Meyer (74-17). Series: Florida leads 28-23-3. Kickoff: 8
p.m. ET Saturday. TV: CBS.
Outlook: The Gators' defense had a difficult time get-
ting off the field in last year's 28-24 loss to the Tigers.
LSU put together three touchdown drives that totaled 46
plays, and running back Jacob Hester beat up Florida to
the tune of 106 yards on 23 carries. The Tigers did an
exceptional job against Tim Tebow, holding the eventual
Heisman Trophy winner to 158 yards and two touch-
downs on 12-of-26 passing. Tebow has a lot more options
at his disposal this year, as evidenced by this past week's
38-7 win at Arkansas. Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps ,
became the first two Gators since 1997 to run for 100
yards in the same game, and all of Florida's touchdowns
were scored by players who can cover 40 yards in 4.4 sec-
onds or less. LSU quarterback Jarrett Lee showed that he
is capable of leading the Tigers with a 261-yard, two-
touchdown performance in a 34-24 win over Mississippi
State on Sept 27. Florida will have to shut down LSU's
leading rusher, Charles Scott, in order to put all the pres-
sure on Lee.

South Carolina at Kentucky
Records: South Carolina 4-2 (1-2 SEC East); Kentucky 4-1
(0-1 SEC East). Coaches: South Carolina's Steve Spurrier
(167-58-2); Kentucky's Rich Brooks (120-145-4). Series:
South Carolina leads 12-6-1. Kickoff: 12:30 p.m. ET
Saturday. TV: Raycom Sports.
Outlook: South Carolina's quarterback carousel contin-
ues to spin. Despite being replaced by vaunted freshman
Stephen Garcia in the Gamecocks' win over UAB, Chris
Smelley had a career day with 327 yards and three touch-
downs in this past week's 31-24 victory at Mississippi. The
Wildcats' rally fell short this past week at Alabama as the
undefeated Crimson Tide held on for a 17-14 win. An
injury to Randall Cobb allowed Kentucky's Mike Hartline
to take the reins of the offense. Hartline has proven him-
self a capable field general and has one SEC Player of the
Week award to his credit However, one of the knocks on
Hartline is the number of incomplete passes he throws,
which accounts for his 11th-best passing-efficiency rating
in the conference. Both teams have been phenomenal
against the pass, ranking among the nation's top three in
passing yards allowed per game.
Vanderbilt at Mississippi State
Records: Vanderbilt 5-0 (3-0 SEC East); Mississippi State
1-4 (0-2 SEC West). Coaches: Vanderbilt's Bobby Johnson
(85-86); Mississippi State's Sylvester Croom (18-34).

lustration u2008 -ruce ante (

top billing
Series: Mississippi State leads 10-7-2. Kickoff: 1:30 p.m.
CT Saturday. TV: None.
Outlook: Needing just one more win to become bowl
eligible and guarantee a .500 record in conference play,
the Commodores are looking to avoid a letdown.
Mississippi State has found all types of ways to stymie
itself during its current three-game losing streak. The
Bulldogs failed to capitalize on three fumbles and were
0-for-14 on third down in a 3-2 loss to Auburn in the con-
ference opener. They turned the ball over four times and
allowed Georgia Tech to run for 438 yards in a 38-7 loss
in Atlanta, and lost 90 yards on penalties in a 34-24 set-
back to LSU. Vanderbilt's resurgence is the product of
Johnson's coaching. The Commodores lead the SEC in
fewest penalty yards per game and are first nationally in
turnover margin. Mackenzi Adams stepped in for injured
quarterback Chris Nickson and accounted for 207 yards
of total offense in this past week's 14-13 win over Auburn.
A defense that ranks sixth nationally in sacks per game
has shown a knack for making plays late in games.
Tennessee at Georgia
Records: Tennessee 2-3 (0-2 SEC East); Georgia 4-1 (1-1
SEC East). Coaches: Tennessee's Phillip Fulmer (149-48);
Georgia's Mark Richt (76-20). Series: Tennessee leads 20-
15-2. Kickoff: 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday. TV: CBS.
Outlook: Coming off a 41-30 throttling at the hands of
Alabama, Georgia will have plenty of motivation when it
faces the hapless Volunteers. Tennessee scored on four of
its first five possessions en route to a 35-14 victory in 2007
that cost the Bulldogs the Eastern Division championship
and a crack at the national title. Instead of answering any
questions about the direction of the program this past
week, Tennessee struggled to a 13-9 home win over
Northern Illinois. Led by new starting quarterback Nick
Stephens, the Volunteers collected only 225 yards and
converted three of 13 third-down chances against the
Huskies. Georgia will have to display its balance to have
success against a defensive unit that ranks among the
nation's top 13 in total defense, pass efficiency defense
and rushing defense. AJ. Green has pulled down 14
receptions during the past two games from quarterback
Matthew Stafford, while Bulldog running back Knowshon
Moreno is averaging 97.8 rushing yards per game.
Arkansas at Auburn
Records: Arkansas 2-3 (0-2 SEC West); Auburn 4-2 (2-2
SEC West). Coaches: Arkansas' Bobby Petrino (43-12);
Auburn's Tommy Tuberville (109-55). Series: Auburn
leads 10-6-1. Kickoff: 4 p.m. CT Saturday. TV: Pay-per-
Outlook: After holding off Western Illinois and
Louisiana-Monroe, the Razorbacks have scored a total of
31 points against a trio of ranked teams in Alabama,
Texas and Florida. Arkansas signal-caller Casey Dick led
the conference's second-ranked passing attack, but Bobby
Petrino's squad ranks last in the league with an average
of 100.6 rushing yards per game. Auburn's defense
should be enough to lead the Tigers to victory, but
Tuberville must see progress from an offense that has
been held to 14 points or fewer in conference games
against Mississippi State, Tennessee and Vanderbilt In
addition to leading the nation in third-down defense, the
Tigers rank second in scoring defense, seventh in total
defense, 13th against the pass and 14th against the run.
Arkansas' offensive line yields a nation-worst 4.2 sacks
per game, and the Razorbacks are last in the conference
in turnover margin

I A A Running back Glen Coffee
rushed for a career-high
218 yards in the second-ranked Crimson
Tide's 17-14 victory over Kentucky. It .
was the sixth-best single-game rushing
performance in school history and the
school's first 200-yard rushing
performance since Kenneth Darby
accomplished the feat Oct. 6, 2004.
IRAW SAS with a 220-yard
performance on 24-of-38
passing in this past week's 38-7 loss to
visiting Florida, quarterback Casey Dick
moved past Joe Ferguson for seventh
on the school's all-time passing yards
list. Dick will move to fifth on the list
with 92 yards against Auburn.
UDIURN Rodgeriqus Smith became
the seventh player in school
history to collect 100 career receptions
with a 2-yard grab in the first quarter of
this past week's 14-13 loss to Vanderbilt.
Smith, who snagged his first scoring
reception of the season with a 7-yarder
in the first quarter, is currently sixth on
Auburn's career receptions list with 103.
i R"IDA Quarterback Tim Tebow was
intercepted in the third
quarter against Arkansas, snapping his
streak of 203 consecutive pass attempts
without an interception. It was the
third-longest streak in SEC history,
trailing only the 325 attempts without
an interception by Kentucky's Andre'
Woodson (2006-07) and Georgia's
David Greene's 214 attempts (2004).
IMRGIA Senior punter Brian Mimbs
was named a semifinalist for
the Draddy Trophy, which is college
football's most prestigious academic
honor. Each selection must have at least
a 3.2 GPA, possess outstanding football
ability and demonstrate strong
leadership and citizenship. Arkansas'
Jeremy Davis, Florida's James Smith,
Kentucky's Tim Masthay, Mississippi
State's Anthony Strauder and South
Carolina's Ryan Succop joined Mimbs as
Draddy semifinalists.
iTUCIY Cornerback Trevard
-- Lindley broke up three
passes against Alabama, increasing his
career total to a school-record 29
breakups. The previous record of 27 was
set by Antoine Huffman. One negative
for the defense was that Glen Coffee
was the first opposing player since
Florida State's Antone Smith in 2007
to rush for more than 100 yards.
Charles Scott's 535 rushing
yards in four games are the
most by a Tigers player since Cecil
Collins had 583 in the first four games
of the 1997 season. Scott is one of three
players in school history to open a
season with four consecutive 100-yard
rushing games.
MInSSIIPPI South Carolina
snapped the Rebels'
11-game homecoming winning streak
with this past week's 31-24 win. Senior
Mike Wallace had the 11th best
performance of any kick returned in
school history with 129 kickoff return
yards against the Gamecocks.
IM. STATE Running back Robert
Elliott tore the ACL
and LCL in his left knee early in the
fourth quarter of a 34-24 loss to LSU on
Sept. 27. The redshirt freshman
currently ranks third on the team with
18 carries for 61 yards, an average of 3.4
yards per carry.
fMI AOLINA Linebacker Eric
Norwood collected his
15th career sack against Mississippi and
moved into third place on the school's
all-time list for tackles for loss.
Norwood, who has 31.5 tackles for loss,
needs a half-sack to tie Cecil Caldwell
(1997-2000) for third on the school's all-
time sack list.
~IlIESSEE Sophomore Eric Berry
collected his eighth
career interception in this past week's
13-9 win over Northern Illinois and
returned it 48 yards. Berry ranks fifth on
the school's all-time interception return
yardage list with 271 yards. Tim Priest
holds the school record with 305 career
interception return yards.
WIMDERBILT This past week's 14-13
win over Auburn gave
the Commodores their first 5-0 start
since 1943 and their first 3-0 SEC start
since 1950. With the victory, Vanderbilt
snapped a 13-game losing streak to the
Tigers and evened the all-time series
between the two programs at 20-20-1.

R rising North Carolina gets another shot at a signa-
ture win Saturday afternoon when college football's
ost-storied program comes to Kenan Stadium.
Notre Dame may not be what it once was, but it is still
Notre Dame, and that carries a lot of weight on the
recruiting traiL Not only would a victory allow the Tar
Heels to surpass 200Ts win total, it also will show the
nation that head coach Butch Davis is on the verge of
another career-defining rebuilding project.
Although the Fighting Irish have appeared to put last
year's 3-9 finish in the rearview mirror, head coach
Charlie Weis still must do more to appease the Subway
Alumni. A loss to the Tar Heels would most likely take
Notre Dame out of the BCS equation and raise more
questions about the program's direction.
Records: Notre Dame 4-1 (I-A Independent); North
Carolina 4-1 (1-1 ACC Coastal). Coaches: Notre Dame's
Charlie Weis (26-16); North Carolina's Butch Davis (59-
29). Series: Notre Dame leads 16-1. Kickoff: 3:30 p.m. ET
Saturday. TV: ABC/ESPN.
Outlook: Connecticut's Donald Brown rushed for a
game-high 161 yards on 33 carries, but quarterback Zach
Frazer threw three interceptions against the North
Carolina defense in this past week's 38-12 setback. North
Carolina quarterback Cameron Sexton, who was third on
the depth chart before TJ. Yates suffered an injury
against Virginia Tech on Sept 20, has proven himself to
be an effective field general the last two weeks against
Miami and Connecticut. The Tar Heels must continue to
do the little things like capitalizing on turnovers and
opponents' penalties. Notre Dame sophomore quarter-
back Jimmy Clausen leads a passing attack that ranks
34th nationally, and his offensive line ranks 16th national-
ly in sacks allowed per game. Clausen threw for 347
yards, but got virtually no help from his running game
this past week as the Fighting Irish held on for a 28-21
victory over Stanford.

Clemson at Wake Forest
Records: Clemson 3-2 (1-1 ACC Atlantic); Wake Forest 3-1
(1-0 ACC Atlantic). Coaches: Clemson's Tommy Bowden
(90-48); Wake Forest's Jim Grobe (82-73-1). Series:
Clemson leads 56-16-1. Kickoff: 7:30 p.m. ETThursday.
Outlook: The Tigers' season took another unexpected
turn two weeks ago as Maryland rallied for a 20-17 victo-
ry at peath Valley. This has been said before, but
Thursday's contest could be the biggest game of the
Tommy Bowden era, because a loss will end Clemson's
conference championship aspirations and relegate the
Tigers to a second-tier bowl game. Wake Forest must
avoid a repeat of its showing against Navy two weeks ago,
when quarterback Riley Skinnei'had one of the worst
games of his career, with four interceptions, and the
Demon Deacons yielded 292 rushing yards and three
rushing TDs against the Midshipmen. The Tigers fg led
to force a turnover against Maryland, while committing
three of their own. Bowden must make sure the dynamic
duo of James Davis and C.J. Spiller get plenty of carries
against a defense that ranks 72nd nationally against the
East Carolina at Virginia
Records: East Carolina 3-2 (1-1 Conference USA East);
Virginia 2-3 (1-1 ACC Coastal). Coaches: East Carolina's
Skip Holtz (57-42); Virginia's Al Groh (79-80). Series: East

Carolina leads 2-0. Kickoff: Noon ET Saturday. TV:
Raycom Sports.
Outlook: The Pirates vaulted into the national po
the BCS picture by opening the season with wins ow
nationally ranked Virginia Tech and West Virginia.
However, back-to-back losses, including an overtime
back at N.C. State, have put East Carolina's season
peril. Houston quarterback Case Keenum threw for
yards with three touchdowns and one interception
of-45 passing, and Cougars running backs collected
yards on 39 carries in a 41-24 win at East Carolina c
Sept. 27. The Cavaliers may have salvaged their sea
and saved Groh's job with this past week's 31-0 win
visiting Maryland. Virginia, which got 226 passing y
and two touchdowns from quarterback Marc Verica
ed the Terrapins to four successful third-down conv
sions on 13 attempts and converted 10-of-17 third-di
chances. The Cavaliers' defense took a big step forw
by limiting Maryland's leading rusher, Da'Rel Scott
yards on 11 carries and holding wide receiver Darri
Heyward-Bey without a catch.
Gardner-Webb at Georgia Tech
Records: Gardner-Webb 2-3 (0-1 I-AA Big South); G
Tech 4-1 (2-1 ACC Coastal). Coaches: Gardner-Webb
Steve Patton (104-74-1); Georgia Tech's Paul Johnso
(111-40). Series: First meeting. Kickoff: 3:30 p.m. E
Saturday. TV: None.
Outlook: The only concerns that Johnson should
heading into this game against the Bulldogs, who h
lost two straight, is showing off too much of his attic
and staying healthy for the stretch run. The Yellow
Jackets displayed an added dimension to their run-
'ed offense in this past week's 27-0 win over Duke. 1
freshman quarterback Jaybo Shaw completed nine
13 attempts to Demaryius Thomas, who finished w
yards. Gardner-Webb ranks third among Football
Championship Subdivision teams in rushing defense
11th in total defense. Bulldogs quarterback Stan D(
threw for 310 yards with three interceptions and on
on 27-of-41 passing in this past week's 13-10 loss at
Charleston Southern. Ryan Gates claimed Big Sout

Series: First meeting. Kickoff: 3:45 p.m. ET Saturd;
Outlook: The Hurricanes held the ball for a total
minutes and 44 seconds in this past week's 41-39 lo
visiting Florida State. Miami quarterBacks Robert M
and Jacory Harris combined for 154 yards and there
interceptions on 20-of-47 passing in the penalty-mar
game that featured 22 flags. Florida State quarterback
Christian Ponder accounted for 303 yards of total o
and running back Antone Smith collected 92 yards
four scores on 27 carries. Miami may have won the
turnover battle against the Seminoles, but Florida S
was also 11-of-17 on third-down attempts and the
Hurricanes were just 2-of-15. The Golden Knights
rebounded from a 34-7 loss to Boston College and
setback to UTEPwith this past week's 31-17 win ov
iting SMU. Miami's offensive line will have to stymi
- defense that ranks first in Conference USA against
run and tackles for loss per game.

Table 4

Here's the condensed version of the matter. While I have been Sheriff, we have arrested considerably more people for committing
crimes. When you have more inmates in Jail, it costs more to feed and house them. When our Jail is maxed out, we take them to an-
other jail. When you total what the BCC gave me to operate the jail and what they paid to other counties to house our overflow; it is
still less than the surrounding counties have been paying for their jails. When former Sheriff Smith writes that I wasted your money, I'
don't know if he doesn't know and understand how this works or if it is just the spin of politics. Either way, in the south we have a
saying, "Bless his heart" f'm sure he meant well.
