COMMUNITY PRAYING FOR WOUNDED SOLDIER



Blountstown native Ty Edwards




shot during attack in Afghanistan


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Marine Ty Edwards, a native of
Blountstown, was critically wounded
. in an attack in Afghanistan.
Family members received word
Saturday that Lt. Col. Edwards, who
is stationed in Okinawa, Japan,'was
ambushed and shot in the head while
training troops.
Edwards, 38, was flown to
Germany where his wife, Anna
(Bietenholz) Edwards, arrived in the
early morning hours Tuesday. She
was allowed to fly with her husband
on a Medivac plane later that morn-
ing, bound for Bethesda, Maryland,
where his parents, Tommy and
Debbie Edwards, of Blountstown,
were scheduled to meet them.
Family members advise the couple's
two young children, Mason and
Alaina, remained in Okinawa where
Anna's mother, Virginia Bietenholz,
of Blountstown, is expected to arrive


today.
According to family members who
have posted blogs and advisories
online, Ty' reportedly "opened his
eyes and was responsive at some
point" which was encouraging. It was
also noted that one of Tommy
Edwards' nephews by marriage, who
is serving as a pilot with the
Mississippi National Guard, was
planning to look Ty up when he was
in Afghanistan. He wound up being
the pilot who flew him tq Germany
after the attack.
Another family connection
occurred at the hospital in Germany
Tuesday morning when Renee
Jeppson of Blountstown, whose hus-
band, Rhett, is stationed: there, was
able to meet Anna when she arrived.
"Uncle Tommy and Aunt Debbie
said they have been truly blessed,"
their niece, Michele Futch, tells The
County Record. "They have really
felt the love from this community
during this time of crisis. They have


heard from people throughout the
community, country and world that
are praying for them. Keep them all
in their prayers."
The site www.caringbridge.
org/visit/tyedwards is keeping family
members and friends updated on
Ty's condition and allowing loved
ones to leave messages of encourage-
ment. One .of the messages in the
guestbook stands out from the oth-
ers. It was written by '1ir's sister,
Tiffany.
[Ty] is such an inspiration to me
and I am so proud of him," Tiffany
remarked. "I know he is strong and I
have faith that he is going to make it.
God is at work and he is all powerful
and can do anything. I just pray that
it is in his will for Ty to make a full
recovery. I think back when 'Ty was
younger and these days I would have
been concerned that he was a little
psycho because when all the other

An Altha teen has been
charged as an adult in a burgla-
ry that occurred last Tuesday
on White Pond Circle and three
others were arrested for assist-
ing him in the crime.
, Joshua LaFollette, 17, has
been charged with grand theft,
burglary of an occupied
dwelling, and criminal mischief.
Wesley William Stephens,
Sarah Jeanette'Hamilton, and
Phillip Eugene;Greathouse, all
18, have been charged with
principle, in the first degree to
burglary and grand theft.
As reported in last week's
edition of The County Record,
an 81-year-old woman in the
home called 911 around 5 a.m.
and said she 'awoke to find a
window in her home open and
broken, along with an open
door. She locked herself in her
kitchen and called authorities.
The victim's purse was the only
item known to be missing.

A man suspected of being
involved in a Jackson County
murder was apprehended
Thursday night in Altha.
James Donovan Cook III,
22, of Sneads, is in custody at
the Calhoun County Jail
charged with being a principle
to homicide.
According to the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Office,
deputies were called to
Smith's Supermarket in Altha
just before 11 p.m. Jackson
County investigators were on
the scene and said they
received a tip that Cook, a
suspect in a murder that
occurred earlier that evening


in Marianna, was traveling
with a woman in a truck from
Blountstown to Sink Creek.
Just south of Altha, they met
the northbound vehicle and
spotted it stopping at the
supermarket.
Dep. Bliss Moreau took
Cook into custody and Lt.
Adam Terry spoke with the
woman accompanying Cook,
Chloe Stubblefield, 19. She
advised she knew nothing
about the murder until the
deputies were getting them
'out of the truck. She further
stated they had just left a
friend's home in Blountstown.
Authorities interviewed the
friend, Katrina Coleman, 22,
to verify the couple had been
there. Coleman reportedly


stated Chloe called her crying
around 8:30 p.m. and said she
needed to talk. Upon arrival
at her house, she said Chloe
stated Cook told her he had
not done anything, but "Adam
killed the dude."
Sources say the murder
occurred sometime before 5
p.m. A 911 call led authorities
to a Blue Springs Road home
where Thadius Rhian Garrett
was found with multiple gun-
shot wounds. He died an hour
later at Jackson Hospital.
Witnesses told investigators
Adam Shay Bolds arrived at
the home with Cook and
James Eugene Hardy. Bolds
and Garrett reportedly got
into an altercation during
which Bolds allegedly shot


Garrett several times. The
trio then fled the scene. Hardy
was later found walking and
taken into custody, charged -
the same as Cook with prin-
ciple to homicide. Bolds, 23,
of Sneads, was captured near
Ashford, AL, Monday,
charged with an open count of
murder.

LETRmOTEEIO


To the Editor:
I want to commend Warden
Varnum and the excellent work
done by Officer Brunner's work
squad on renovations of the
Town of Altha's fire station. I
went there at different times
and observed the project and
finished results. This endeavor
has, saved the taxpayer's thou-
sands of dollars in labor expens-
es and has improved the quality
of quick response time in the
event of a fire in our town and
surrounding areas in our
County.
Again, I say thanks for a job
well done! I am looking for-
ward for the department of cor-
rections help on future projects
for the improvement and pros-
perity of our great community
in the Town of Altha. God bless
the Florida Department of
Corrections and Calhoun
Correctional Institution!
Warmest Regards,
Derek Creamer
Town. Councilman
28 year Veteran of the
Fla. Department of
Corrections

SDear Editor,
This is a follow up to my let-
ter printed recently in The
County Record. I have been.
approached by many people,
some giving me advice on how
to deal with the county commis-
sioners and some giving excuses
for the poor funding to the, fire
departments.
Excuse #1: We are a
poor rural county. This is a
fact. With the' exception of
Liberty County, ALL of the
other poor rural counties in
Florida with comparable popu-
lation size and income levels to
pur county fund their fire
departments with at least 10
4 times more money. The county
commissioners know this infor-
" nation yet there has been no
explanation as to why these
-counties can do it and we can't.
Excuse #2: Calhoun
SCounty is 20-30 years
behind. As a health care
provider for 18 years, I take the
health and well being of my
patients seriously and provide
the best care I. can because my
patients are entitled to it. No
wqn ivould seek my services if I
gave care that was 20-30 years
behind. Why is it acceptable for
our fire departments to use out-
d dated, unsafe, and illegal equip-
ment that puts the citizens and
firefighters' lives at risk?
Excuse #3: This is the
way it has always been
done. This philosophy is inex-
- cusable in education, health
care and law enforcement. It is
also an inexcusable attitude for
fire service.
Advice: Learn to play
the political games to get
what you need. It is unac-
ceptable for our fire depart-
ments to be pawns in the coun-









T p I
w I t, o I i heHMp


ty commissioners' political
agendas. It is a shame that we
have to wait until someone is
injured or killed due to county
neglect before it is decided by
our elected officials that some-
thing needs to be done. We, as
citizens, deserve better than
this. The attitude that the vol-
unteers are a bunch of ignorant
rednecks with nothing better to
do than to ride around playing
"fireman" on the weekends is
deplorable and a slap in the
face.
Many thanks to
Commissioner Danny Ray Wise
for his vision and support of the
local fire departments and for
his willingness to stand alone.
Rita Smith Pruette
To the Editor:
My name is Bruce Coward
and I work with Hand
Properties, Inc., developer /
owner of the ALCO Store in
Blountstown, Florida. I wanted
to take the time to send a letter
thanking the community of
Blountstown for their warm
reception to the store opening
with sales figures last month
that ranked this store as # 2 in
the system, nationwide.
I also wanted to thank
Danny Ryals, Broker for the
tremendous effort he gave to
make sure this store became a
reality for your city. Danny
never gave up when the proper-
ty size, zoning, water, sewer
issues seemed to be hurdles
that we would not overcome.
Danny always kept the most
positive attitude that-we would
find the right property and went
the extra mile to make sure that
the City of Blountstown did not
lose the ALCO Store to a neigh-
boring city. Danny always kept
the goal in focus.


Again, Hand Properties, Inc.
much appreciates the contribu-
tions of Danny Ryals and of all
those who did their part in var-
ious capacities to enable the
completion of this ALCO Store.
We value the opportunity to be
a part of your community and
look forward to providing you
with convenient quality goods
and service. Thank you for your
ongoing support.
Sincerely,
Bruce E. Coward

Dear Editor:
As event chair for the Relay
for Life event this year, I want
to thank you for putting our
article on the front page of the

attention to cancer awareness,
early detection and fighting for
a cure as we can and the Hope
and Courage Award article did
that.
Thank you again,

Letter to Editor,
The Ladies Auxiliary of Am
Vets Post 2073 would like to
thank all of the people of

tance donating magazines to be

letters and the little goodies
that they did for the soldiers.
Thank each of you and may

Breast cancer survivor





shares a story of hope


BY DREAMA PETERS
I am a Cancer Survivor
My' story began in
December 2007 while nursing
an injury from a fall in my yard
which resulted in a twisted
pelvis. I will go ahead and tell.
you this was the most painful
thing physically I had ever
endured. Emotional pain, on
the other hand, has been a dif-
ferent story.
, For the last two years, emo-
tional pain has been really
hard. I lost my mother in April
of 2006. Six months later in
October of 2006, I lost my 14
year old granddaughter in a
four wheeler accident. And in
January qf 2008, I was diag-
nosed with breast cancer.'
As a Christian I know all
things happen for a reason. We
don't always know what that
reason is just that there is one.
I discovered a lump in my
left breast in December while
down with the twisted pelvis.
'There's my reason for my
injury, because had I not been
in bed I would have probably
ignored that spot, thinking that
it was probably from one of the
kids at school pushing or pulling
on me. With that I called the
Women's Healthcare in Dothan
and made an appointment.


DREAMA PETERS


They gave me one almost
immediately. The day I went
they did a mammogram, sono-
gram and a biopsy all the same
day. I was impressed because
every other time I had a mam-
mogram I would always have to
go back to do the sonogram.
Anyway, they called within a
few days and on January 2,
2008, I was diagnosed with
Stage 2 cancer. I was alone
when I got the call and for a
split second I was crushed, but
suddenly a feeling of peace
came over me. I knew right
away what that peace was, it
was the peace that surpasses all
understanding. The next step


was to call my husband and my
children and, of course, they
were devastated, see they did-
n't know about that peace. My
appointment had been made
with Dr. Scott Robbins for
January 5th and when I met
him I knew once again my
Jesus was ahead of me.
So the journey began with a
lumpectomy which revealed the
cancer in one of the three nodes'
that was removed. This was
good news because 'it meant
that we had caught things early,
but it also meant that I needed
to have a partial mastectomy.
This 'was all said and done by
January 18th.
As I was healing I met can-
cer doctor, Dr. Mayer, referred
by Dr. Robbins. See God had
already chosen my doctors. At
this point I was told I would
have to go until the first of
August with chemo treatments
every three weeks. After my
third treatment Dr. Mayor
informed me he was only going
to give me one more treatment
because I was responding so
well and .that I was a perfect
candidate for anti-hormone
therapy which is a pill that I'll
take once a day for the rest of
my life.
I am alive and doing well,
back at work at Blountstown


Elementary School where I am
a paraprofessional working with
ESE children with a brand new
attitude about my life and
where God has brought me
from. You see I haven't said a
lot about the pain of my cancer
because for me this pain in no
way compares to the pain of los-
ing my granddaughter. The
cancer is healed, but she is still
gone.
In my after thoughts I'd like
to thank the people God put in
my path to help me through;
JoAnn Truette for standing so
boldly in your faith, it gave me
strength, Kathy Roberts for
being a true friend in Christ,
you see these two kept on at me'
until I bought a cancer policy
back in November never
expecting I would ever need it,
this policy had to be in affect 30
days before it would pay, well
guess what it had been in affect
30 days on December 28th and
I was diagnosed January .2nd.
How is that for God. He knows
our needs. When things like
this happen we find out who our
friends are and trust me God
has blessed me with a wonder-
ful family, church family and.
more friends than I ever
thought about having. Thanks
to each and every person for
any and everything you did.
Please. remember, early
detection is your best defense.
God bless.

Tigers earn first win over Northview


The Blountstown Tigers
capitalized on some Northview
turnovers Friday night to claim
their first victory of the 2008
season, 31-13. Northview con-
trolled the clock and racked up
the yardage, but made too
many costly mistakes, some-
thing that had been haunting


the Tigers in previous games.
"With so many of our
starters out due to injuries, we
had some JV players step up
and do an outstanding job
Friday night," coach Greg
Jordan said Monday. "Dowling

' The Tigers knocked off

win of the season this past
week. This was a long time.
coming and the players never
stopped believing in themselves
or what we were doing.
The messages we, as coach-
es, preach each week to the
players had some resounding
effect with the rash of injuries
and the direction of this team.
It looked as if we, as a team,
were just about to turn the cor-
ner against Wakulla, then the
injuries started piling up. Four
two way starters were injured
within a 7 day period and out
for the season. How would this
young team respond to. such
adversity? Would they come
out and fight or would they just
play out the remainder of the
season and take what was dealt
to thdm. th nk you saw the'
dtswer tothose questions as the
Tigers playe a to1ghl ganee'
against a very quality opponent
in Northview and finally came
out victorious. It was a MUCH
needed win for every aspect of
our program. The players, the


coaches, the fans all needed
something positive to lean on
for awhile.
The players thank you, as
fans, for supporting them when
the chips were down. The des-
tiny of this team is still in our
hands as we go through the final
five games of the season. Not
only record wise, but also play-
off wise. The Tigers need a win
this week against a very tough
and physical Bozeman team,
then a win against Chipley, to
secure the runner up spot and
a spot in the post-season.
Bozeman is 3-4 coming in and
playing well as they defeated
Holmes County 40-0 this past
week. The Bozeman program
-has turned the corner as being
competitive each week and has
now started winning games.
This will be a very physical con-
test between two schools want-
ing the.same things: the win on
Friday and the playolT spot
that's on the line.
The Tigers will need your
support as we travel to
Bozeman this week. The game
time is 7:00, see ya there!! GO

and punter. Shelton is recover-
ing from heel surgery and is
doubtful for this week. JV play-
er Patrick Wilson had four tack-
les and an interception for us.
Jeremy Watson, Jason Money,
and Malcolm Ivory also had
interceptions for us. Malcolm
returned his 55 yards for a
touchdown."
Northview led after the first
quarter 7-0, but the Tigers
exploded for 21 in the second
quarter behind quarterback PJ
Buggs. Buggs opened the scor-
ing on a 12 yard scamper.
Later in the quarter, Ivory
scored on a 3 yard blast..
Ivory's interception return gave
the Tigers a 21-7 lead at half-
time.
Brandon Smith scored for
the Tigers in the third quarter
on-a 7 yard dash to the end-
zone.
Kicker Jared King, who was
accurate on all four of his
PAT's, booted a 23 yard field
goal in the fourth quarter to cap
the Tigers' scoring. Northview
got their second score late in the.
fourth quarter on a 41 yard pass
play.
The Tigers rushed for 190
yards on 41 attempts led by
Malcolm Ivory with 66 yards
on 11 carries. Brandon Smith
added 45 yards on 8 rushes fol-
lowed by Princeton Grant with
32 yards, PJ Buggs, with 26
yards, and Darrin Huff with 21'
yards.
Buggs was 0-3 passing on
the night.
Northview rushed for 189
yards and passed for 114 yards,
but the Tiger defense, came up
with big, plays to stop their
drives.
Jeremy Watson led the Tiger
Defense with 17 tackles, 2.5
losses. Lance Clemmons had
12 tackles with 2.5 for losses.
Cavon Cox had 11 tackles fol-
lowed by Darrin Huff and jason
Money with 9 each. Malcolm
Ivory had 6 tackles.
This week the Tigers travel
to Bozeman (3-4) for a district
game. Kickoff will-be at 7.00.
Bozeman has already beaten
Chipley (28-7) in district play.:
'The Tigeis will have to beat
Bozenian and Chipley to force a
three team tiebreaker for the
runnerup spot in the playoffs.
If Bozeman wins over the
Tigers, they're in as the district
runner-up in the post-season.

SRemember
ARE YOU A
i CHEERFUL
GIVER?
Many people find
it easy to give by
sharing their time;
energy, and
T7mAdams substance. Others
Fr ,wnaor may be unaware of
the joys and
opportunities of
volunteering and performing "good
works". Sadly others may feel that
they have little to-give.
For a moment, let us picture
ourselves as cheerful givers, giving
the greatest gift we have to give:
ourselves. Perhaps-someone we
know would be grateful for help in
their home or yard. Perhaps
someone would be appreciative of
having an errand run for them.
Perhaps we might watch our
neighbor's child while they run an
errand.
We may share special knowledge,
talents, or skills that help entertain,
enlighten, or enrich others. We
may choose to offer our time,
donations, or prayers on behalf of
some worthy cause. We can
always give a warm hug, lend a
listening ear and be a considerate,
kind friend.
Wouldn't today be a good day to
be a cheerful giver?

'Calendar Girls' host first autograph session
Calhoun County's famous calendar girls were on hand at Goat Day Saturday for the debut of the.
much anticipated calendar featuring these lovely ladies. Above (from left) Mary Alice Minnick, Julie
Leonard Smith, Claire Armstrong Sickle, and Pat Smith Bowden were busy autographing the calendars
featuring them and four others at sites around the county in some...well...interesting poses. Proceeds
from the calendar benefit Blountstown Main Street and are available at Merle Norman for $10 each. The
girls will be back at the upcoming Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre to sign autographs. The calendar was
designed and photographed by the award winning filmmaker Elam Stoltzfus of Blountstown.


Torreya Garden Club learns about

planting trees; next meeting Nov. 3


BY AILEEN McQUAGGE
You don't just dig a hole and
plop the tree into it!
If you Torreya Garden Club
members, want to "Green the
Environment" by planting
more trees, "That's great,"
exclaimed Forester John Sabo,
"But you must plant and nur-
ture them properly!"
This comment was made
when the club members met at
the County Extension Building
Monday, October 6, with Pres.
Sandra Parrish presiding.
For Devotions, Alice
Williford asked members to
recite the Lord's Prayer with
her; then James Williford led
the Pledge of Allegiance.
Before "digging in," every-
one enjoyed refreshments
temptingly displayed on a beau-
tiful table. The vase of colorful.
wild flowers stole the show.
Thank you, Bob and Mary
Alice Minnick, for the "good-
ies."
Program Director Mary
Alice Minnick introduced guest
speaker, Forester John Sabo
who covers Calhoun and
Liberty counties. Forester
Sabo's major job is in Fire
Fighting but he knows all


about tree planting. Using a
video along with his talk,
Forester Sabo outlined the
steps in planting a tree:,(1) Dig
a wide hole, (2) Position tree in
the soil not too shallow or not
too deep, (3) Trim the roots on
4 sides, (4) Position the tree,
and (5) Straighten the tree.
Once planted the tree needs
TLC: (1) Water daily for 2
weeks, (2) Water every other
day for 2 months, and (3) Water
weekly. With proper care, your
tree will thrive.
Forester Sabo provided a.
wealth of valuable information
on tree planting. Pres. Parrish
gave him a copy of Elam
Stoltzfus' "lovely tape on the
Apalachicola River.
A brief business meeting was
held.
Fran Mayo, Mary Alice
Minnick, and Sandra Parrish
,will attend a District 2 Garden
Club meeting in Panama City
October 9.
The Club will hold a Silent
Auction at the November 3
meeting as an "in-house"
fundraiser.,
Torreya Garden Club will
host the Spring District 2 meet-
ing at the Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement May 7, 2009. ,

River Valley Marketplace

open again on November 1


THE DRIVER OF A GULF ASPHALT TRUCK was fortunate to escape
with only minor injuries when his truck crashed on Hwy. 275 North
Monday afternoon. Joel Ray Shaffer, 50, of Chipley was behind the
wheel headed southbound when he ran off the road, then overcor-
rected. He was taken to Calhoun-Liberty Hospital with minor
injuries. Magnolia VFD and Blountstown Fire Dept. assisted at the
scene, along with the Calhoun County Sheriffs Office. The accident
was investigated by the Florida Highway Patrol.

hit when it opened in
September. There were a wide
variety of booths, but the crowd
was asking for more fresh pro-
duce. If you are a farmer or

make some extra dollars, bring


your goods to the River Valley'
Marketplace.

ly FREE, but there are some

kets or yard sales.

must be white or beige so we
can create a cohesive look.
V Produce must be vendor
grown and sold.
V No selling out of trucks;
please set up a nice presenta-
tion at your booth.
If you would like to be a ven-
dor, you must register in
advance. Contact Kelli at 899-

Odoms sweep awards at Swine Show
Congratulations, Cassidy and Joshua Odom, for competing and placing
in the Swine Show, trials at the 2008 Jackson County Feir! Cassidy showed
two hogs and placed 2nd and 5th. In showmanship, she placed 4th in her
division. Joshua also showed two hogs and placed 1st and 4th. In show-
manship, he placed 2nd in his division. Cassidy and Joshua have been
showing hogs since last year. They are not only judged on their hog han-

Action With Faith
James 2:17
Following Paul's defense
before the Sanhedrin, God gave
him a vision: "As you have tes-
tified about me in Jerusalem, so
you must also testify in Rome"
Acts 23:11.
God told Paul he would go to
Rome, but he didn't tell him
when, how, or how long it would
take. Following Paul's vision,
he was placed in prison for two
years, received threats of death
(Acts 23:21), and was manipu-
lated (24:26) and insulted
(26:24). Even on Paul's way to
Rome, he encountered a
typhoon and shipwreck (27:14,
18, 41).
Sometimes we are tempted
to wonder why the problems,
illnesses, hardships and hassles
come our way when we are fol-
lowing, God's direction; but for
Paul, it was straight ahead!" In
the midst of the typhoon and


shipwreck, without food for 1.
days, Paul strengthened the
passengers with these tremen-
dous words: "So keep up you
courage men, for I have faith
God that it will happen just a
he told me," Acts (27:25).
Remember, faith is more
way of walking than of talking.
