Blountstown High School site


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Unexpected twists and
turns continued at the
Calhoun County School
Board meeting last
Tuesday night with more
motions, amended motions
and rescinded motions
tossed back and forth.
Back in June, the
School Board submitted a
proposal for $24.5 million
in special facilities funding.
to build the new
Blountstown High School
after the plan to consoli-
'date BHS and Altha was
scratched. The issue resur-
faced after the recent elec-
tion:anrd was on the agenda
for a final vote Tuesday.
The meeting opened
with Board member
Danny Ryals (district 1)
bringing his motion to
rescind the original motion.
to consolidate BHS and
Altha. That motion was
seconded by Tim Smith
and unanimously carried.
Superintendent Tommny
McClellan then
announced he had come
up with a possible solution
to the debate on where to
put the proppsed new


Since the Meeting...
The School Board is now focusing on a potential
new site for BHS on Hwy. 69 North between Mason
Road and Pine Island. Since Tuesday's meeting...
V Ralph Yoder of the Florida Dept. of Transportation
is gathering traffic count data on Hwy. 69.
V School Board Member Djanny Ryals is meeting
with Planner Tony' Arrant on the comprehensive plan.
V Superintendent Tommy McClellan and Engineer
Greg Bailey were set to go before the Board of County
Commissioners Tuesday to discuss zoning and permit-
ting issues.
V Engineer Greg Bailey is putting a survey crew in
place and abiologist to check soil samples.
V Facilities coordinator Willy Pitts is getting two


commercial appraisers.

BHS: "I've found a site a
half mile north of
Blountstown on Hwy. 69,"
he reported. "It has 80'
acres with 12 to 13 ofthem
wetlands. It's close enough
we can get city utilities."
McClellan further suggest-
ed they move BMS to the
existing BHS, take $1 mil-
lion of reimbursed archi-
tect fees, add $1 million
from reserves, then couple
that with the $2 million in
DEP funds set aside for'


Altha School and build a
structure at Altha to move
students out of the dilapi-
dated two-story white
building on that campus.
Ryals commended
McClellan then offered a
motion to proceed with
securing $24.5 million
from special facilities, but
find a larger, more suitable

Commsioners discuss

at-lage voting proposal


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
How would county com-
missioners feel about at-
large voting? That was the
question posed to each of
them this week by The
County Record after the
issue has resurfaced to have
all local elected officials run
countywide.
"I'm in favor of it," says
Harold Pickron, district 5
commissioner. "I think, it
would be something good. I
feel like it should be a coun-
tywide vote."
Truman Grant, who
serves district 4, disagreed.
"I guess I was probably the
only one against it last
time," he remarks, refer-
ring to a vote on the matter


12 years ago. "I'm against
at large voting. I feel like no
minority can get voted in
with at large voting. It's still.
the same way...if you count
all the minorities in the
county you would see
'there's a great difference.
It's not changed as much in
the south as it has in the
north. You could tell by the
number of votes Barack
Obama got here."
District 'I commissioner
Danny Ray Wise says he
sees the reasoning behind
the proposed change. "I
guess from a voter's view-
point, you'd get to have a
better choice of who
becomes county commis-
sioner. You'd have a better

Who stole the star


on Christmas tree?


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor

When Blountstown city
workers began dismantling
the huge Christmas tree on
Magnolia Square a couple
weeks back, they noticed
something was missing: the
star that sat on top.
City Manager James


Woods says the tree has
rings with chains holding it
together and it was appar-
ent those were used as a
ladder to reach the top of
the tree that stands at least
25 feet high.
"'If it's returned undam-
aged, we won't seek prose-
cution or further investiga-
tion," Woods remarks.

Somehow, largely through the Grace of God, devoted loyalty, and
the vast pride on the part of many people, The County Record has
never missed an issue.


and 71. Board member
Tim Smith (district 3) sec-
onded the motion. Ryals
then amended his motion
to include taking the $2
million from DEP set aside
for Altha, take $2 million
from reserves ($1 million
of that from architectural
fees) and start construction
on a new Altha High School
no later than the day they
break ground on the new
BHS. He further proposed
they seek funds for other
schools in the county after
those two projects are
underway. The amended
motion died for lack of a
second..
"Mr. Ryals, you are
absolutely on track, but I
couldn't second that motion
until we get the first phase
on track," Smith remarked,
adding he'd like to have
some workshops and study
the proposal.
Ryals stressed the need
to get students in Altha in
classrooms and out of the
15 portable buildings that
are anticipated to cost
around $150,000 per year


when DEP starts charging
rent this summer.
Board member Danny
Hassig (district 5) was
adamantly opposed to
Ryals' proposal. "I truly,
believe it's a ploy...basical-
ly, a stall tactic,"'he stated.
"We have to get appraisals,
surveys, negotiate on price.
The site has to be zoned for
a school which requires
public hearings. We can't
agree as a board to take
$25 million, how do we
think we can agree on zon-
ing? This county could not
be more split."
Hassig said all the archi-
tectural work, engineering,
and permitting would likely
take at least six months and
the board would fail to
meet the state's deadline,
thus lose the money. "If you
want to kill this, kill it
tonight, but I'm not in favor
of dragging this out," he
remarked. "We can all
explain to the taxpayers
why we turned down $25
million and lost $1 million
in architect fees."
Chairwoman Kelly King


Super Council-


mid-2008. Over the course
of three weeks, sessions
were held to talk about the
real needs of our communi-
ty. Elected officials, busi-
ness owners, educators, and
everyday citizens helped
outline their short- and
long-term goals for our
county. One word resonat-
ed through those meetings
- "synergy." As goals were
outlined, it was clear that
success would require syn-
ergy across the county to
build the momentum need-
ed to move Calhoun
County forward.
The Chamber took com-
ments and ideas from the
Visioning sessions, devel-
oped a five-year strategic
plan, and created the Super
Council. The council con-
cept has been applauded by
the Florida Dept. of
Community Affairs (DCA)
and the Governor's Office
of Tourism, Trade, and'
Economic Development
(OTTED). In fact, repre-
sentatives from Enterprise
Florida and DCA are plan-
ning to attend the Jan. 27th


meeting.
The overall goal of the
Super Council is to help
build synergy and team-
work between the elected
boards of Calhoun County.
Current plans are to hold
this meeting twice a year,
making it easier to move
forward with discussions
that affect Calhoun County.
Having all parties in one
room, at one time, should
enable constructive discus-
sions that result in progress.

The January Super
Council meeting will prima-
rily focus on two things:
first, the Chamber's final
strategic plan will be pre-
sented. Second will be the
Rural Economic
Development Catalyst
Project. This project could
have an incredible impact
on Calhoun County, but
much must be done to pre-
pare.
The public is invited to
attend this landmark meet-
ing as we work together to
move forward in Calhoun
County.


(district 2) asked architect
David Vincent of JRA and
engineer Greg Bailey of
Bailey, Bishop & Lane,
about their timeline for
permitting, design
chariges,and other require-
ments should the school
site be changed.
"Hypothetically, if we pur-
chased the. land next week,
how long would it take?"
she inquired.
"Three months,"
Vincent replied.
"We would work as hard
as possible, but I can't
guarantee we'd get it done
by the date," said Bailey.
King explained, "You all
know I've been against this
school from the beginning
and when the site was
moved to BHS I was really
against it. But I'm not for
giving back $24.5 million."
Ryals said permits could
be expedited on a new site,
but feared the existing
BHS site would turn into a
"white elephant" with soil
related issues and other
potential problems.
Hassig said he wasn't
"willing to take a gamble on
losing $25 million" and sug-
gested making adjustments
on the BHS property and
moving forward.
"I'm in total agree-
ment," Board member Ken
Speights (district 4)
remarked. "We're backing
up again. It's time to move
forward. We don't build
schools based on public
opinions."
After comments from
the audience, Hassig made
a motion to amend Ryals'
motion, stating that if a
new site could not be found
by Feb. 1, they would move
forward with the site at
BHS. "Let's compromise,"
he said. "If we can find
another site, fine. But, if
not, let's walk out of here
knowing we are not turning
down $25 million." The
motion failed with a 3-2
vote (Ryals, King, and
Smith opposed, Hassig and
Speights in favor).
"That's just not enough
time," said Smith.
After more discussion,
the board voted 4-1, with
Hassig casting the opposing
vote, to approve Ryals'
motion to seek a new site
within three miles of the
SR 20 and 71 intersection.


Further discussion was'
held on the Hwy..69 site
suggested by
Superintendent McClellan.
Smith made a motion and
it was unanimously
approved to give McClellan
authority to negotiate with
JRA and Bailey, Bishop &
Lane on the project.
The following morning,
a meeting was held at the:
proposed site between
Hwy. 69, Mason Road, and.
Pine Island, an 80 acre par-
cel (with 60 of those acres
suitable for buildings)
owned by Marc Choulat of
Quincy.
"It's very doable,"
Architect David Vincent
commented after walking
the property. "This is a
great site. We will have to
work hard with the school
board, but they have been
great to work with. We will
get it done in time."
As far as zoning,
Engineer Greg Bailey said,
"We don't anticipate any
problems, but there is a
process you have to go
through with the county."
McClellan provided an
update on the project to
The County Record
Monday morning, advising
that Ralph Yoder of the
Florida Dept. of
Transportation is gathering
traffic count data on Hwy.
69. Ryals is meeting with
Planner Tony Arrant on the
comprehensive plan.
McClellan and Bailey were
set to go before the Board
of County' Commissioners
Tuesday to discuss zoning
and permitting issues.
Bailey is putting a survey
crew in place and a biolo-
gist to check soil samples.
Facilities coordinator Willy
Pitts is getting two com-
mercial appraisers.
McClellan says they are
negotiating price with the
landowner, but also have at
least four other potential
sites should this one not
work out. He will be meet-
ing with BHS Principal
Duane Barber, Assistant
Principal Sue Price and
Assistant Superintendent
Vicki Davis Wednesday to
review the original county-
wide high school plans and,
adjust them to fit BHS.

Old fashioned Hog Butchering



at the Pioneer Settlement


The annual hog
butchering day was
held at the Panhandle
Pioneer Settlement
Saturday. All ages
enjoyed this old fash-
ioned event celebrating
the way family and
friends once gathered to
prepare and preserve
their meat for the com-
ing months. The morn-
ing began with a deli-
cious breakfast and
ended with a big lunch.
Below, reader Jack
Edwards shares his
memories of this time
honored tradition.

BY JACK EDWARDS
Pork was the pre-
ferred meat in the win-
ter time. Sometimes
almost every Sunday
there would be fried
chicken. Other times
would be possum, squir-
rel, wild rabbit, gopher,
fresh fish, and salt fish
for breakfast with home-
made buttermilk bis-
cuits and syrup.
Butchering was a
way of life during the
pioneer days. It was a
fun time for all the fami-
ly, friends, and neigh-
bors to join in on a day of
helping one another to
survive. Some people
had little money in the
days gone by, but every-
body was good neigh-

bors. If a man in the
community got sick and
was unable to plow his
fields all the neighbors
would pitch in and plow,
plant and harvest the
crops for him if need be.
It was a way to help out
in their day to day strug-
gle to survive.
Children of all ages
were permitted to join in
the festivities. The most
enjoyable time of day
was sitting down to the
dinner table to eat fresh
fried liver, ribs, and liver
hashlets and ice tea to
wash it down with. After
lunch they would make
the sausage, salt the
ham and shoulders build


a small fire in the smoke
house and hang them up
over the fire to smoke
and cure.
The fire had to be
kept night and day until
the meat was ready.
They would build a fire
under the wash pot to
cook the cracklings and
use the oil to cook them
with. When the sausage
was ready it was put in
lard cans with warm oil
to preserve it, until
ready to cook and eat.
The preacher of the
community church was
always invited, and
always gave thanks at
the table. I still remem-

CALHOUN-LIBERTY


HOSPITAL































Tristen was only in ankle deep water in the Chipola when bitten by the
moccasin. We rushed him to Calhoun-Liberty Hospital. We could not
be more pleased with the care he received there. They had the
appropriate antivenom and knew exactly how to use it. They were
very professional and efficient. And more importantly, they were also
very courteous and compassionate to us and Tristen at the same
time. We have a great appreciation for our hospital right here in our
community. We're proud of them and so thankful for saving our son's
life. We highly recommend you use it for the many services they
provide. We know you'll be as pleased as we were.

Annual banquet Feb. 26,



tickets are on sale now


The Ivey Brothers will
play the Chipola College
"Old School" dance, a ben-
efit for the Chipola Honors
Program on Friday, Jan. 30.
Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
and guests can dance the
night away or just reminisce
with some great music.
Three brothers-Robert
Ivey, Richard Ivey and
Wilson Ivey-have made
up the core of the group
since the mid-60's. Wilson's
son, Chase Ivey, joined the
group in 2004.
The band first per-
formed at a high school
dance in 1965, and quickly
progressed to college
dances at Chipola, FSU,
UWF and UF.
Drummer Robert Ivey is
a Chipola history professor
who serves as adviser to the
Freshman Honors program.
Math professor Bonnie
Smith, who directs the pro-
.gram with Ivey, says, "The
goal of Honors is to equip
our local leaders of tomor-
row with awareness and


understanding which will
improve the lives of our cit-
izens. Proceeds from the
dance go toward an endow-
ment which provides
resources for the many
annual projects of the
Honors Program. We invite
all who value academics to
support the program."
Some 70 of the brightest
students from the five-
county area are enrolled in
Chipola's Honors program
which brings thought-pro-
voking speakers to campus
and allows students to visit
educational sites in other
cities.
Dance tickets are $10
and may be purchased from
any Honors student or by
phoning Smith or Ivey at
526-2761. Tax-deductible
gifts for the Honors
Endowment may be mailed
to the Chipola College
Foundation at 3094 Indian
Circle, Marianna, FL

Missouri artist's work featured at library
The work of artist Charles Carman Pierce was on exhibit at the Calhoun County Public
Library lastweek. Pierce, shown above with Library Director Rita Maupin, specializes in
traditional portraiture, fine art, charcoals, oils, and pastels. Although Pierce resides in Lone

spend a few days at the library displaying his work and even demonstrating his talent.
Some of his paintings are featured on the portraitsocietyofatlanta.org website.



Swamp Gravy's 'Ain't No


Tellin' will kick off March 5


'Swamp Gravy has
announced the show dates
for the reprisal of Ain't No
Tellin. The second half of
season sixteen kicks off
March 5 at 7:30PM at his-
toric Cotton Hall Theatre
in Colquitt, Georgia.
Theatre goers have pro-
claimed this to be the best
play yet!
Picture it: Colquitt,
Georgia, 1938. Heart of the
Great Depression. Fireside
Chats with Roosevelt on
the Radio, and front porch
chats all over Colquitt. And
there is PLENTY to talk
about. The WPA projects
are just getting underway,
with locals lining up for the
privilege to work. Banks
have failed, farms have
been foreclosed. And an out


of place Yankee, visiting
Colquitt as part of the WPA
Oral History Project, finds
herself in a very strange
world as she discovers a
secret marriage, a
Moonshine Farmer, and an
evil genius. She thinks
she's seen it all, until she
comes upon a resident
whose real age isn't known
because the birth records
were burned during the
War Between the States.
What are their secrets?
Mysteries abound in
Swamp Gravy's newest
play. Ain't no tellin' what
will happen next!'
Aint No Tellin continues
Swamp Gravy's rich tradi-
tion of storytelling as true
stories are brought the
stage and served up with a


side of original music and
traditional hymns. Swamp
Gravy's world renowned
cast of 100 volunteers bring
these stories to' life in
Georgia's Official Folk Life
Play.
Join the Swamp Gravy
family for Aint No Tellin, in
Cotton Hall, every
Thursday, Friday and
Saturday in March. Shows
are held at 7:30 PM each
Thursday, Friday and
Saturday with a matinee, on
Saturday at 2:30PM as
well. For more informa-
tion, please visit

At-large voting-


choice and more input."
Commissioner Don
Miller says, "As represen-
tative of district 3, it's my
obligation to represent
what the people's request
is, whether it's my personal
opinion or not. But do I get
to vote for the state repre-
sentative from Duval
County? That's another
way to look at it. I'm a real-
ist...there's a lot of ways to
look at this issue.
Unfortunately, it gets
clouded."
Dan Wyrick, district 1
commissioner, is undecided
on the matter. "I've got
mixed feelings about it,"'he
remarks. "I see it's pluses
and it's minuses."
Back in 1996, a referen-
dum was on the ballot to


change to at-large voting
and Calhoun Countians
were overwhelmingly in
favor of it with a more than
two to one margin. The fol-
lowing year, the county
commission voted 3-1 to
return to the at-large
method. However, after a
threat of a federal lawsuit
by the NAACP, they
rescinded their vote in
April of 1998.

A group of citizens are
getting organized and plan
to hold a public meeting in
the near future. They will
propose eliminating single
member districts and
switching to an at-large sys-
-tem. The meeting date is
expected to be announced
next week.

Boat owners may have federal


tax benefits available to them


Recreational boat own-
ers who paid state sales
taxes on a boat purchase, or
those who secured a bank'
loan to finance a boat, may
have some tax deductions
available when filing'their
2008 federal income tax
return.
For boat owners who
paid substantial state sales
taxes on'a new or used boat
purchase last year, the Tax
Extenders Act of 2008
signed by President Bush
on October 3 continues to
offer a federal tax benefit
with a deduction for state
sales taxes. Boaters must
choose either the state sales
tax deduction or state
income tax deduction on
their federal tax return -
you cannot take both.
In addition, to take the
state sales tax deduction,


the sales tax on a boat pur-
chase must be applied at
the same tax rate as the
state's general sales tax. In
order to claim the sales tax
deduction, tax returns must
be itemized. State sales
taxes are entered on IRS
form Schedule A, line 5b.
For those owners with a
secured boat loan, mort-
gage interest paid on the
loan may be deductible
from your federal income
taxes. Taxpayers may use
the "second home" mort-
gage interest deduction for
one primary home and one
second home and must
itemize deductions on their
returns. A boat is consid-
ered a second home for fed-
eral tax purposes if it has a
galley, a head, and sleeping
berth.
Some boaters may be


unaware of this potential
tax benefit because not all
lending institutions send
borrowers an Internal
Revenue Service form
1098 which reports the
interest paid. Not receiving
the form does not preclude
taking the deduction.

If a 1098 is not avail-
able, boaters should contact
their lender for the amount
of interest paid and should
enter it on line 11 on
Schedule A along with the
lender's tax ID number. If
a form 1098 is sent, boaters
should simply enter the
amount on line 10 of
Schedule A.
For more details on the
mortgage deduction, go to
http://www.IRS.gov and

or the Fact Sheets.


Morrell Bailey named Big


Bend Baseball Commissioner


Long time Altha resi-
dent Morrell Bailey has
accepted the position of
commissioner for the Big
Bend Adult Baseball
League of Florida.
Assisting Bailey and repre-
senting the Western
Division will be Donald
Stephens of Blountstown,
formerly of Chattahoochee.
An assistant commissioner
for the Eastern Division
has not yet been named.
The next league-wide
meeting, one of upmost
importance, has been set
for Saturday, Feb. 14, 10
AM, EST, at the
Apalachee Restaurant in
Bristol.
Bailey, retired from the
Calhoun County School
District for 20 years,
played semi-professional in

Chattahoochee. He pitched
and played every position,
except catcher. He fondly


FWC will


meet at


Sandestin
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) will
meet at the Sandestin Golf
and Beach Resort in
Sandestin Feb. 4-5.
Florida's quota hunt sys-
tem will see changes during
the 2009-2010 hunting sea-
son if the Commission pass-
es new rules on Feb. 4. The
proposed rules would make
quota hunt permits non-
transferable, but would
allow a guest permit for
archery, muzzleloading gun,
general gun, wild hog,
mobility-impaired and
spring turkey hunts. Staff
also will propose changes for
bag limits and regulations
on various wildlife manage-
ment areas.
On Feb. 5 (Thursday),
the Commission will
address marine fisheries
issues. A final public hear-
ing will be held on a pro-
posed rule that would estab-
lish a June 1 through Sept.
30 recreational red snapper
harvest season in Gulf of
Mexico state waters.
A final public hearing
also will be held on pro-
posed rules that would regu-
late the number of traps
used in the lobster fishery.
Commercial lobster trap
fishermen would still be
able to fish with the same
number of traps they use
now. However, if they
decide to sell or transfer the
FWC-issued certificates
that authorize their traps to
someone ,outside their
immediate family, the pro-
posed rules would allow sale
or transfer of all but 10 per-
cent of those certificates.
Another final public
hearing will take place on
proposed rules that would
add new fish and inverte-
brate species to marine life
(aquarium species) regula-
tions, establish or change
size and bag limits and gear
specifications for several
marine life species, and
make other administrative
and technical marine life
rule changes.
The FWC also will hold
a final public hearing on a
proposed rule that would
help efforts to identify and
remove lost and abandoned
blue crab traps from Florida
waters. The rule would
establish six regional closed
seasons to the harvest of
blue crabs with traps. That
would provide opportunities
for authorized persons and
groups to clean up trap
debris left in the water after
fishermen remove their
working traps during the
proposed closed seasons.
In other marine fisheries
action, Commissioners will
consider a draft rule that
would establish administra-
tive penalties for blue crab


management program viola-
tions, review and discuss
management of flounder
and various federal fisheries
management issues, and
take final action on pro-
posed rules regarding
marine special activity
licenses.
The meeting will con-
vene at 8:30 a.m. on both
days. FWC meetings are
open to the public,

recalls the day when he
pitched a double header,
one that went 10 innings,
for Blountstown and then
was picked up and driven
to Chattahoochee where he
pitched another game that
night. On that day, with
him pitching 28 innings
total, his teams won all the
games. Some of the players
on his teams were Angus
Gholson, Joe Henry Boyd,
Bobby Holt, Jay Bird
Freeman, Joe Gissendaner,
Dick Joyner, fDavid


Gholson and Albert "Bug"
Cayson.
"I want to give people a
chance, like I had, to play
after high school and col-
lege," said Bailey. "This
league will be a tremendous
sporting opportunity for
young athletes in this area."

BY KELLI PEACOCK
NeWs Editor
The Blountstown Tigers
soundly defeated their cross
county rivals, the Altha
Wildcats, Friday night with
a score of 60-26.
"Everybody scored a
point or two,". Coach Tony
Davis remarks. "It was
good energy and good exe-
cution offensively. We
played sound defense. We
just tried to play smart ball
and have good energy going
into our district. We have
two games left and have to
win one of the two to be
seeded number one."

OBITUARIE


BOBBY RAY BRUNTY
Mr. Bobby Ray Brunty,
74, of Clarksville, FL,
passed away early Monday,
January 19, 2009, in
Blountstown.
Mr. Brunty was born in
Logan, WV, and had lived
in Calhoun County since
1993, coming from Panama
City. Mr. Brunty retired as
Sergeant First Class from
the United States Army

guishing himself by out-
standing meritorious
achievement in connection
with ground operations
against a hostile force in the
Republic of Vietnam during
the period 14 June 1969 to
13 June 1970. Through his
untiring efforts and profes-
sional ability, he consistent-
ly obtained outstanding
results. He was quick to,
grasp, the implication of
new problems with which
he was faced as a,result of
the' ever-changing situa-
tions inherent in a coun-
terinsurgency operation
and to find ways and means
to solve those problems.
The energetic application
of his extensive knowledge
materially contributed to
the efforts of the United
States mission to the
Republic of Vietnam. His
initiative, zeal, sound jidg-
ment and devotion to duty
have been in the highest
traditions of the United
States Army and reflect
great credit on him, his
unit, and' the military serv-
ices.
Survivors include his
wife, Susan Brunty, of
Clarksville; two sons,
Fredrick D. Bryant of Lynn
Haven, Samuel E. Bryant
.and his wife, Nathalie, of
Nova Scotia; one daughter,
Deborah J. Owens, of Lynr
Haven; three brothers,
Thomas Eugene Brunty
and his wife, Eleanor, of
Columbia, AL, Kennie L.

Barb'ara Sue Copley and
her husband, George, of'

Chamber-
arranged within the settle-
ment to simulate an actual
working agricultural com-
munity, which serves the

ry museum. As a public
educational institution the
museum's vision is to pre-
serve the pioneer lifestyle
for future generations,
encourage interest in the
stories and ways of the past,
provide relevant and cre-
ative educational programs,
performances, exhibits and
visitor experiences, and to
create an inviting environ-
ment' where' ideas' are
shared and gathered.

S Here's an
interesting
thought that
we might do
S well to
ponder. Our
reserves as
mAdams humans are
aI always
amazing.
We were all made to meet
and master strains. We are
designed to face life, and
any situation life creates,
undismayed:.
It is well for us to
remember that reserves of
strength lie hidden within
us. These are the best of
times and the worst .of
times. The world is in a bad(
state, but everything will
tiecome:'still'wdrse unless'
each of ys ids.his lest.

7.


slave owner,, bought
acreage in Calhoun
County. This land was
located in Hughs
Creek. One of his
slaves, Delilah, had
four children for
Simmon. They were,
Oscar, Anna, Mary and
Molly.
At the end of slav-
ery, Delilah married
Green Horton. They
had three children,
Bell, Florida, and
Cain. They raised
their children in Hughs
Creek area. At their
death, they were
buried in unmarked
graves in Woods
Cemetery.
Oscar was in his
early teens when slav-
ery ended. Even
though -he could not
read or write, he
became known as a
wise man. He was a
farmer, a traveling min-
ister, as -well as a
trustee for the one
room school of Hughs
Creek.
He was married
twice. Julia, the daugh-
ter of Miles and
Mariah Brown, was his
first wife. Before her'
death they had eight
children. They were
Isaac, Frank, Jack,


John had two wives,
Lucy and Lucinda. He
and Lucy had two
daughters, Flossie and
Mattie. Upon her
death, he married
Lucinda who raised the
girls and their three
sons, John, Richmond,
and Charlie.
George and Flossie
married in 1921.
George built their
home on land given to
them as well as homes
throughout Calhoun
County. He worked at
the local sawmill, built
boats, and became a
minister.
Flossie was a home-
maker and seamstress
for their .twelve chil-
dren. They were Isaac
(who became a Ranger
in the U. S. Army and
was killed 'in Korea);
Robert (who was in the
Navy during World
War II he died in
1997); John (who still


lives in Blountstown);
Loretha Jones (a
retired educator who
still lives in
Blountstown); Chaffer
(who died in infancy);
Mae Ella Grant (a
retired para-profes-
sional who lives in Port
St. Joe); Syrenees (a
retired educator who
lives in Miami); Lois
Miller, Flossie Gautier,
and Carlton (retired
educators who live in
Lynn Haven); and
Dorothy Mauzy (a Job
Corps administrator
who lives iin
Jacksonville). As one
can see, George and
Flossie instilled in their
children the impor-
tance of education.
George died in 1981
and Flossie died in
1997. They were
reunited again and
must be proud of the
generation they left
behind.

'Sharpstown' returns


to Calhoun County
Ever heard of Sharpstown? The County Record learned this
week from Commissioner Truman Grant about this once thriv-
ing community on the south side of Calhoun County. The area
on Hwy. 71 near Pine Memorial Cemetery is known by many old
timers as Sharpstown.
"It used to be on the map," says Grant. "There used to be an
old turpentine commissary, gas pumps, and a station. That's
where I was raised.' To educate the younger folks and honor the
past, Grant recently enlisted the county to purchase a sign for

Students Working Against Tobacco


S.W.A.T. members say 'thanks'


Blountstown Middle
School's S.W.A.T. club
would like to say thanks -to
everyone that has helped
make the first half of the
school year a success. The
year started with a bang in
September with a county
wide S.W.A.T. event at the
civic center. BMS had a
tremendous turn out at this
event to show our support
for the return of S.WA.T.
to Calhoun County. We had
a lot of fun, food, music,
and contest that were
shared by all:
In October, BMS
S.W.A.T. showed their
community spirit by partic-
ipating in Goat Day with a
booth that distributed infor-
mation to the community
about the effects of tobacco.
They also participated in
the "88" Display demon-
stration on the town square
that was to promote com-
munity awareness on how
many people die per day in
Florida due to tobacco
usage. "88 people will die
per day in Florida due to
tobacco." The day included
poster displays, sidewalk


chalk art, a balloon release,
beating down the "Big
Tobacco" pifiata, and food
and drinks for the kids.
November 19th brought
us a very special event, Mr.
Terry Allen Jones the state
offices of S.W.A.T. came to
BMS to give a special pres-
entation. Over thirty


SWAT members joined' Mr.
Jones to complete his spe-
cial S.W.A.T. training, for
few hours of cooperative
activities, information, and
prizes.

We are now strong with
thirty-seven registered
members, and we hope to


continue tp grow this sec-
ond semester. If you are
still interested in becoming
a S.W.A.T. member, this is
the time to join us with
many new activities coming "
our way. Thanks again to
all teachers, parents, and
staff that have supported us
this first semester.
