A Gift of Life
When asked to write this poem
It wasn't hard to do.
For you, sweet granddaughter,
God gave me you."
He knew I would need sunshine
So He gave me your beautiful smile.
He knew I would need direction
So He gave me you
for my own correction.
For knowing I had you to guide
I would stay 'on my toes
and hold my stride.
Having you has changed my life.
And given me meaning
To anything else in this world
That I could ever want to share
For you my precious little girl
Have brought me back to the
Place in life where I've always.
Known I should be,
Back into the hands and Grace of
God where I'll be for eternily.
by Granny, written in 2001
Sweetheart, this poem still holds
as true today as.it did the day I wrote
i??i'Vofre the reason I k'noL God and

are not thought of and missed. We

Huntin' season's crankin'
up; open dates announced
BY TONY YOUNG
Florida Fish & Wildlife
Football season's in full
swing, and the 2008-09 hunting
season's starting to crank up.
Archery season's been going on
in most of the state, and in this
issue, I want to talk about three
other seasons about to start:
crossbow, muzzleloading gun
and the first phase of dove.
Crossbow season occurs
between archery and muzzle-
loading gun seasons in the
South and Central hunting
zones, lasting five days. The
first dates were Oct. 6-10 and
the next are Oct. 20-24. In the
Northwest zone, it comes in
later, on the Monday after
Thanksgiving (Dec. 1), and
lasts one week through.Dec. 7.
This season's for any hunter
who'd like to use a crossbow or
continue using a bow on private
lands. This is not just for dis-
abled hunters. Crossbow sea-
son doesn't apply to wildlife
management areas (WMAs),
The most common game to
take during crossbow season
will be deer and wild hog. Only
bucks may be taken, and one
antler must be at least five inch-
es long above the hairline. The
daily bag limit on antlered deer
is two. Wild hogs considered
livestock on private lands -
may, with landowner permis-
sion, be hunted year-round with
no bag or size limits.
It's also legal to shoot gob-
blers and bearded turkeys dur-
ing crossbow season. Only one
may be taken per day, and
there's a two-bird fall-season
limit. But you can't hunt
turkeys in Holmes County dur-
ing the fall and winter.
Crossbows and bows must
have a minimum draw weight of
35 pounds, and hand-held
releases on bows are permitted.
For hinting deer, hog and
turkey, broadheads must have
at least two sharpened edges
with a minimum width of 7/8
Legal shooting hours are a
half-hour before sunrise to a
half-hour after sunset. Except
for turkeys, hunters may take
resident game over feed such as
corn on private lands.
Some things you can't do-
during crossbow season include
hunting deer, hog or turkey with
dogs, using explosive or drug-
injecting arrows, and possessing
Immediately' following the
close of crossbow season in the
South and Central hunting
zones is the beginning of muz-
zleloading gun season. Season
dates run Oct. 11-19 and Oct.'
25 Nov. 2, respectively.
Muzzleloading season comes in
later in the Northwest zone and'
runs Nov. 21-23.
During muzzleloading gun
season, bows and crossbows are
legal methods of taking game on
private lands, along with muz-
zleloaders. On WMAs, only
muzzleloaders may be used.
Legal shooting hours are the
same for muzzleloading gun
season as crossbow season.
And, legal game, including bag
limits and prohibited methods
for taking game, also are -the
same as crossbow season. Bag
limits and antler/size restric-
tions for game on WMAs can
differ, so check the specifics of
the area before you hunt.
For hunting deer, muzzle-
loaders firing single bullets must
be at least .40-caliber. Guns fir-
ing two or more balls must be
' 20-gauge or larger. You may
not use muzzleloaders with self-
contained cartridge ammuni-
tion capabilities or possess mod-
ern firearms during muzzleload-
ing gun season.
The first phase of the
mourning and white-winged
dove season began Oct. 4 and
ends Oct. 27 statewide.
Shooting hours during this first
phase are noon to sunset, and
there's a new, 15-bird daily bag
limit this year.
The only firearm you're
allowed to hunt doves with is a
shotgun, but you can't use one
larger than a 10-gauge.
Shotguns must be plugged to a.
three-shell capacity (magazine
and chamber combined).
You may hunt doves over an
agricultural field, as long as the
crop's been planted as part of
regular agricultural practices.
However, it's against the law to

The Tigers had an open
week this past Friday. A chance
to do some healing physically
and mentally after a tough five
game stretch to open the sea-
During the week the Tigers
worked on fundamentals among
other things to finish the season
on a positive note. We are wip-
ing the slate clean as we pre-'
pare for Northview Bratt this
week. We have a five game
schedule ahead of us with two
district games to determine the
runner up spot in the district.
On the open Friday, the coach-
es scattered out to do some
scouting. Myself. and Coach
Johnson went to Bonifay to
*watch Chipley and Bonifay
square off in an old rivalry.
Bonifay won the game with 45
seconds left for their first win of
The other coaches went to
Tallahassee to watch Bozeman
at Fl. High. Bozeman fought
.hard, but was overmatched as
are most opponents that are
public schools. That is another
conversation all together.
Maybe one day our legislators
will get their heads out of the
sand and give our rural public
schools a chance to compete on
a level playing field.
While I'm on the subject, the
re-classification for the. next two
years is coming up this
November. Right now the cutoff
numbers for class 2B are 411-
616 students in grades 9-12.
We are sitting very close to that
bottom number right now. We
will not know the outcome until
the state wide FTE assessment
is complete. We have until Oct.
31 to submit our numbers to
the FHSAA. Then they will
take all the football playing
schools and divide by six, then
split class 1A and 2A in half to
make class 1B and 2B. We
hope our numbers allow us to
go back to class 1A for the next
The JV season was complet-
ed last week with an impressive
5-1 record. We will now be able
to move up some of those play-
ers to add needed depth to our
Varsity. The Tigers will host
Northview this week at 7:00 @
Bowles Field. Come* out and

Last week was very compet-
itive for the BHS Lady Tigers.
'Monday the Lady Tigers took
on the Bristol Bulldogs. The JV
girls played hard but Bristol
took it home. The Varsity girls
came out strong and continued
through for the win. Tuesday
the Lady Tigers played the
Altha Wildcats and the JV once
again played hard but Altha,
won the game.
For the varsity, on the other
hand, they gave the game their
all and brought the house down
with an outstanding win.
Thursday, which was the'Lady's
last game of the week, they
played the Marianna Bulldogs.
The JV girls stepped up a
notch, played a hard game, and
brought home the win. The
Varsity girls played hard
throughout the entire game but
at the end of the night
Marianna won. The Lady
Tigers have two more games in
the season so come out and sup-
port your Lady Tigers.

On October 2, a chosen few
of the BHS chorus group trav-
eled to Stetson University for
Honor Choir, along with chorus
director Janet Edewaard. The
annual celebration was held in
Deland, Florida.' The celebra-
tion consists of many high
schools around klorida coming
together to sing. They sang a
great number of songs; Clint
Coley says, "the German piece
was the hardest to sing." He
also comments that, "Once you
got past the hours of singing in a
little room, with a hundred
other people, it was pretty fun."

Helpfulness knows no social' class

The warehouse became a
meeting place for all things
wicked and horrific, known to
all as TERROR HOUSE.
After years of torture, tor-
ment and unspeakable acts, the
captives rebelled and brutally
murdered Jonas. A demented
Ava hanged herself as a result of
the loss of her husband and col-
league in im'norality.
A spiritual cleansing was
performed on the warehouse, to
no avail and for the safety of the

sealed. For decades the ware-
house has been closed, only
now to be opened for the public

$8000. Around $3000 was raised at a benefit cookout hosted by Preble-Rish, then the company added $5000 to the proceeds. According
to Hospital Board Member Ruth Attaway, plans are in place to use the funding for facility upgrades., PHOTO BY BEN HALL
Preble-Rish, Inc. contributes $8000;
hospital continues to move forward
BY RON GILLIARD
I'm very pleased and proud
of the progress we've made in
turning around the fortunes of
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital. Let
me share some of that progress
with you, and maybe more
importantly, the reasons for it.
First of all, there's our staff.
They've been through some
tough times and a lot of them
"stuck" with the hospital
through the worst of those
times. They are dedicated, hard
working, courteous, compas-
sionate, and highly professional
individuals. They have come
together and formed a great
healthcare team. I could not be
more proud of them.
Secondly, our physicians
need to be recognized. I often
say I can't admit the first
patient or order any x-rays. It
must be done by a doctor. We
currently have five "active"
physicians on our staff. Dr.Iqbal
Faruqui, Dr. Misbah Farooqi,
Dr. Cliff Bristol, Dr. Jerry
Skipper, and our newest mem-
ber, Dr. Joti Keshav are all
These are highly profession-
al, well trained and caring doc-
tors. -A community our size is
very fortunate to have these
doctors meeting your health
care needs. Many communi-
ties of similar size, have no
physicians. We're very proud
they are on our staff.
We also have a great group
of doctors staffing our
Emergency Room as a part of
Services. Many of these physi-
cians are now coming to our ER
on a regular basis -arid our
patients have been very
pleased with their care. We feel
we have greatly increased the
level and quality of care in the
ER in the past year.
And the hospital would not
even be here if not for our
Board members. This dedicat-
ed group of citizens gives freely
of their time, and a lot of it!
They've overseen the complete
turnaround of the hospital once
they regained it from the previ-
ous "for profit" operator. /Led
by our Chairman, Laddie
Williams, the other board mem-
bers are Dr. Laban Bontrager,
Ruth Attaway, Marilyn Russell,
Edward Brigham, John
Tomlinson, Jr., Rachel
Manspeaker, and Paul Smith.
This group provided sound
guidance and strong leadership
through the early days of taking
the hospital back and continues
to do so today. Hospitals are
real challenges in today's envi-
ronment and they have made
the difficult and often tough
decisions needed to move the
hospital forward in the very
positive manner being
described in this article.
Our elected officials at every
level, local, state, and federal,
have all been most helpful and
supportive of the hospital,
Marti Coley and Congressman
Most of all however, we need
to recognize and thank the citi-
zens of our community that
have supported the hospital in-
so many ways, including the sig-
nificantly increasing number
using our services.
If you've not seen the hospi-
tal in awhile, you might not rec-
ognize it. \ We have beautiful
landscaping in our front yard
and patios on our entrances
thanks to the Keep Calhoun
Beautiful and Blouritstown
Main Street organizations,
Our lobby is now very attrac-
tive thanks to 'Wakulla Bank.
The Dining Hall was complete-
ly redecorated by the
Blountstown Rotary Club. Our
new Chapel is being renovated
by the Chamber of Commerce
Board. We have several
patient rooms that have been
"adopted" and either near com-
pletion or getting ready to be

ful efforts at soliciting donations

But the most important key
is the utilization of our services.
We're very proud that we've
basically doubled the number of
"inpatients" in our hospital on a
daily basis from last year. And
all of our outpatient services,
IE, the emergency room, radi-
ology, laboratory and. respirato-
ry therapy are all producing
record numbers in the volume
of work they are performing.
Of course, this all leads to an
improvement in our overall
financial position. We've
almost doubled the dollar vol-
ume of total work generated on
a monthly basis from the first
year the .hospital was taken
back by the Association Board.
,Now, we're working hard on
trying to collect it!
'We feel the citizens, (our
patients) are increasing their
utilization of these services
partly due to our improved
appearance but also, and more
importantly, due to our
improved "attitudes."- We've-
worked hard on being more
considerate and patient friend-
ly. Courteous, compassionate,.
high quality care is our goal.
I've said before, we're not
perfect and constantly work on
improvement and especially
