EDUCATION


SCHOOL OFFICIALS MOVE



FORWARD WTH BHS PLANS.


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
School officials are
moving forward with,
plans to find a new site'
for the proposed
Blountstown 'High
School.
As reported in last
.week's. isse,.,. 80 acre
parcel on ,Hwy. 69'
between Mason Road
and Pine Island may pro-


vide the solution.
"We had two
appraisals done on the
property Thursday and
Friday," Superintendent
Tomnly McClellari tells
The County Record.
"They should be turned
in by Wednesday."
As for the price,
:McClellan advises the
owner, Marc ChoUlat of-
Gadsden County, has set
the pride at $6500 per


acre, plus closing costs.
"It's $520,000 for' the
property and $19,493 for
the closing costs," says
McClellan, noting that
it's much less 'than the
cost for necessary-
improvements at the
previous proposed site
on the BHS campus.
. "That's-. compared to
S$1.9 million to elevate
the high school property
where we are and you


have 80 acres compared
to I believe 13 there."
If the appraisal comes
in lower than the asking
price, four out of five
school board members
must vote in favor of it.
McClellan and
Engineer Greg Bailey
met with the county
planning commission last
week iand are"' awaiting
guidance on zoning and
permitting issues.


REPRESENTATION


School Board members speak



out on at-large voting proposal


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor

Should county commis-
sioners and school board
members be elected only
by voters in their district
or should they have to run
countywide?
That is the question
being raised once again
after the issue sat idle for
over a decade. A group is
organizing to bring at-
large voting to Calhoun
County, citing the fact that
the public passed a refer-
endum by a more than '2
to 1 margin in 1996 to do
just that. The following
year,'the county commis-
sion voted 3-1 to follow
the majority" of voters'
wishes and 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they rescinded their vote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


planning a public meeting
on the matter soon (date
to be announced in our
next issue). In the mean-
time, The County Record
has been polling elected
officials this measure
would impact. Last week,
we heard from the county
commissioners. This
week, the school board
members weigh in on the
subject:
"I am absolutely in
favor of it," says Danny
Hassig, who serves in dis-
trict 5. "I may never get
elected again, but that's
okay as long as every
board member has the
focus on every child in this
county and they are
accountable to every tax-
payer in this county so we
can finally come, together
as a whole and do the right
things for the entire coun-
ty as opposed to repre-
senting our single dis-
tricts."


District 4 member Ken
Speights is concerned
minorities will not have a
voice if the measure pass-
es. "I'm pretty much in
favor of what [County
Commissioner] Truman
Grant said last week,"
Speights remarks, point-
ing out that the lack of
local support for President
Barack Obama proves his
point. "We have to realize
the area where we are and
look at results of the pres-
idential votes. Each dis-
trict deserves the chance
to have someone repre-
sent them from their dis-
trict as opposed to it being
countywide."
Danny Ryals, who rep-
resents district 1, says he
wants to study the issue
further. "I want to know
more about it...what the
cause and effects are going
to be and how it's goingto
serve the people," he says.
"Is it going to be best for

all the citizens? I believe
in doing research and
gathering data before I
made'a big decision."
Kelly King, of district
2, says, "I'm a little mixed
on it. I think it's a good
thing for the entire county
to have a say in who their
five representatives would
be. However, I do believe
the minority population
would be hurt the most."
District 3 member Tim
Smith is also torn on this
issue. "I would not be
opposed at all to at-large
voting because it was
voted in before. However,
I see advantages and dis-
advantages in it. As a
School Board member
serving three terms and
with a wife who had to run
countywide for tax collec-
tor, I'm proud that I run in
just one district and do not
have to go all over the
county."

CRIME BRIEFS


Man arrested

for stealing

$4000 deer

from preserve
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A Blountstown man has
been arrested for allegedly
killing three deer on a pri-
vate hunting preserve.
According to the
Calhoun County Sheriff's
Office, they were notified
earlier this month about the
deer being shot on high
fenced property owned by
Bennett Eubanks. The
investigation led to the
arrest of Jason Keith who is
charged with grand theft,
taking deer at night with, a
gun and light, hunting from
the right of way, trespass-
ing, and breaking or injur-
ing fences.
Matthew Woods faces
the same charges for one
deer.
Eubanks estimated 'the
value of one deer recovered
during the investigation, at
$4000.

News Editor
An Altha woman was
arrested Jan. 20 affer tak-
ing a bogus prescription to a
Liberty County pharmacy..
Shelbra A. Finch has
been charged with fraudu-
lent use of a prescription,
trafficking illegal drugs
(hydrocodone), and posses-
sion of a schedule III nar-
cotic (hydrocodone).
The Liberty County
Sheriff's Office learned
Finch had attempted to fill
a prescription for Lortab
pills from Buy Rite in
Bristol. A suspicious phar-
macy employee contacted
the physician and learned
the pills had not been pre-
scribed.
Finch later admitted to
stealing the blank prescrip-
tion, filling it out with her
husband's name, signing
Dr. *Misbah Farooqi's
name, and filling it at the
pharmacy.
While taking inventory
of her property, investiga-
tors found four other
Lortab prescriptions dated
Jan. 20, along with four
blank prescriptions,

Unemployment rate clinibs

to 7.2% in Calhoun County

Calhoun County's unemployment rate jumped to 7.2%
in December, an increase from 6.1% the previous month.
It was quite a spike from December 2007 when the rate
was just 4.1%.
Each of the 5 counties that make up the Chipola
Regional Workforce Board showed an increase in unem-
ployment. Liberty County had the lowest unemployment
rate for the state of Florida, with a rate of 5.0 percent, fol-
lowed by Alachua County 5.2 percent and Leon County of
5.4 percent.
Florida's total nonagricultural employment in
December 2008 is 7,784,200, representing a job loss of
255,200, or -3.2 percent compared to December 2007.
This is slower than the national rate for December which
is -1.9 percent. The December 2008 rate of job loss con-
tinues the trend of over-the-year declines that began in
September 2007, primarily due to decline in construction.

Beware of jury duty scam;

don't give personal info

Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bronson is alerting consumers
to a growing identity theft scam in which con artists posing
as courthouse workers claim that the person being called
has failed to report for jury duty.
The scam typically involves a call from a person claim-
ing to be a jury coordinator who informs the person being
called that a warrant has been issued for his or her arrest
as a result of the person's failure to appear for jury duty.
When the intended victim protests and reports that he or
she never received a summons to report for jury duty, they
are asked for a social security number, a date of birth and
sometimes even a bank account number.
Providing the information enables the scam' artist to
clean'out the consumer's bank account and open up other
accounts, .obtain credit cards and establish other lines of
credit in the victim's name, Bronson warned.

Charles and Cathy Minyard captured the Torreya Garden
Club's Yard of the Month honors for January. Their home is
located at 17657 NE Charlie Johns Street in Blountstown.
In spite of winter.temps and freezing of color and flower, the
Minyards have managed to create a delightful yard with
variety and balance. "It is a work in progress," says Cathy,
adding that she and Chuck feel as though they are "stew-
ards of the earth." Dogwood, bottlebrush tree, and several
grasses all blend in to offer a well textured and diversified
landscape. Interesting is a zen-like center with a feel of
serenity as compared to the strong Spanish elements of the

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.

Calhoun County Farm Bureau recently awarded an Ag in the Classroom Grant to the
local Head Start program. Pictured at the grant presentation are (from left) Cecil Bodiford,
Calhoun County Farm Bureau President, Angie Hill, Kristy Plazarin, Amy Branton, and
Raymond Russell, Farm Bureau Agency Manager.

Farm Bureau helping little

ones learn about agriculture


The Florida Farm
Bureau Federation and
Calhoun County Farm
Bureau presented a grant
check to Amy Branton with
the Calhoun County Head
Start last Tuesday. Her
application started when a
student asked her, "Where
do roots come from?"
While he has an under-
standing of what roots do
and why plants have them,
the. concept of how they
formed and the process of
seeds growing roots and
becoming another plant
seems to be a foreign con-
cept for our students.
"Our goal is to teach the
children how plants grow,
what is necessary for them
to grow, and to experiment


with different plant materi-
als. We will be beautifying
our playground as well as
learning about different
plants and jobs associated
with agriculture," Branton
said, adding that they have
not been able to do any
type of agriculture learning
or field trip for agriculture.
Florida Farm Bureau is
very proud to make this
possible.
This Florida Farm
Bureau-Ag in the
Classroom grant is a pub-
lic/private partnership
serving K-12th grade edu-
cation with a goal of helping
to increase the understand-
ing of agriculture among
students and educators.
The program is adminis-


tered through the Florida
Farm Bureau, Florida's
oldest and largest general
farm organization.

"I am looking forward to the Big Tent
Event and the naming of our Energy
Conservation Challenge winner,"
said Mason Brock, FPU energy
conservation representative. "The
event is an opportunity for me to work
one on one with customers to answer
questions about conserving energy
and offer FPU's expert knowledge in
energy efficiency."

At the start of the competition, each
customer received a conservation kit
that included caulk, weather stripping,
compact fluorescent light bulbs, and
many other supplies to help customers


reduce home energy consumption.
Energy consumption was tracked over
a three-month period and total kilowatt
hours consumed were compared
against 2007 data from the same time
period. Each customer documented
conservation measures used, and at the
upcoming event, FPU will announce the
contestant who achieved the greatest
reduction in kilowatt hours. The winner
will receive a $500 Lowe's gift card
good toward energy-efficient products
and will be featured in FPU's 2009
conservation advertising campaign.

."I am so proud that a large number of
customers signed up to participate in the
Energy Conservation Challenge," said
Don Myers, general manager for FPU's
Northwest Division. "The Energy
Conservation Challenge is a great
opportunity to make conservation fun
for the entire family while establishing
energy saving habits that will produce
reductions in electric bills."

traded utility company, which since 1924,

of the application process
for the Gubernatorial
Fellows program, providing
Florida university students
with firsthand, high-level
experience and insight into
how government operates.
This program, established
in 2004 and endowed by Al
and Dawn Hoffman in
2005, gives college and uni-
versity students around the
state the unique opportuni-
ty to spend a semester
working alongside state
government's top staff.
"I believe public service
remains-~ne of thegre.atest,
ScaUlliAgi a; p q e rsnpeano j )
low," said Governaa- Grist.L.-,
"The Gubernatorial
Fellows program provides a
unique way for students to
learn about the positive
impact public service has
on the lives of all,
Floridians."

The program is designed
to provide students who are
interested in public service
with the opportunity to gain
experience and exposure
by working in key areas of
government. Gubernatorial
Fellows are assigned to the
Executive Office of the
Governor or the Governor's
agencies, based on their
major or area of concentra-
tion. Fellows will be
expected to work a mini-
mum of 20 hours per week
and will be paid for their
time on the job. Fellows
must also meet weekly as a
group to participate in a
lecture series as well .as
additional government
activities such as press con-
ferenees, budget briefings
and -policy briefings.
Fellows will also be given
the opportunity to partici-


Washington, D.C. These
additional commitments.
are designed to broaden the
Fellows' exposure to state
government and enhance
the experience of all partic-
ipants.
"The Florida
Gubernatorial Fellowship
gave me, the opportunity to
work at the forefront of cli-
mate change policy, an
issue at the center of
today's policy concerns.
This gave me a unique per-
spective which has, added
greatly to 'my graduate
Studies and provided a
greatpppqrtunity to devel-,
op o-prfessional .contacts-
within state government. It
was incredible to be able to
see firsthand all that is
going on in the state and
how it all fits together," said
Jessica Bolson, 2008
Gubernatorial Fellow with
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
and doctoral candidate at
the University of Miami.
In addition to the time
Fellows spend at their
respective agencies, they
also meet once a week as a
group to discuss their expe-
riences with classmates.
During these meetings,
they meet face-to-face with
prominent leaders, includ-
ing Governor Crist, Lt.
Governor Jeff Kottkamp,
Cabinet officers, agency
heads and top government
officials.
"The Gubernatorial
Fellowship has been, with-
out question, the most
rewarding professional
experience I have ever had.
Interviewers never want to
talk about anything except
my many unique experi-
ences over the course of the


agency functions, dis-
cussing issues important to
Floridians with state lead-
ers observing how govern-
ment functions on the
ground, immersed me in
the public sector. I know
that this experience has
given me a deep under-
standing of policy and poli-,
cymaking, that is unrivaled
among my peers," said
Jacob Cremer, 2008
Gubernatorial Fellow at the
Department of Community
Affairs and second-year law
student at Florida State
University.
To be eligible, for 'a.,
Gubernatorial Fellowship,
candidates should be

petitive application

sity calendar, starting in

tion skills, community

"That's awesome," said
Debbie Hampton, 10, of
Girl Scout Troop 854 from
Tallahassee, after viewing a
bald eagle through a tele-
scope at St: Marks
National Wildlife Refuge on
Saturday.
Debbie and five' other
members of her troop had
come to the refuge for a
sign-dedication ceremony
to celebrate the installation
of the Great Florida
Birding Trail road signs
erected" across the
Panhandle during
December and January.
Afterwards, birding experts
from the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) led the
girls and other birding
enthusiasts on a wagon ride
through the hiking trails in
the refuge.
The tour made it clear
why the St. Marks National
Wildlife Refuge was chosen
as one of the sites for the
Great Florida Birding Trail.
During the two-hour ride,
44 species of birds were
spotted, including a bald
eagle and a clapper rail hid-
ing in the reeds of the
marsh.
The Florida Panhandle
offers outstanding birding
experiences and fewer
crowds, with sought-after
species such as the red-


cockaded woodpecker,
swallow-tailed and
Mississippi kites, snowy
plover, Swainson's warbler,
Sprague's pipit and a
remarkable diversity of
winter visitors (including
hummingbirds) not typical-
ly found in the peninsula.
Jerrie Lindsey, director
of the FWC's Office of
Recreation Services, spoke
about the economic benefits
of wildlife viewing, noting
that Wakulla County is
home to seven sites on the
Great Florida Birding Trail.
"Birding is big business
in Florida, and the Great
Florida Birding Trail is an
integral part of the
Sunshine State's $5.2 bil-
lion wildlife viewing indus-
try," Lindsey said. "More
people travel to Florida to
see wildlife than to any
other state."
The Great Florida
Birding Trail is a conserva-
tion program initiated by
the FWC to support the
rapidly expanding activity
of bird watching. More than
485 exceptional sites
throughout Florida have
been chosen.
To find out more about
the Great Florida Birding
Trail and to access maps for
all four regions in Florida,

Trail.com.

Dept. took delivery of a
new 2500 gallon tanker in
March of 2008, part of the
grant was to institute a
driver training program.
This course qualifies
Magnolia Fire Dept. to
continue to apply for the
Assistance to Firefighters


Grant and to maintain a
high standard of safety
through continued educa-
tioii.
The volunteers of
Magnolia Volunteer Fire
Dept. have dedicated
themselves and their valu-
able time to ensure that
they are properly trained to
provide they highest level
of service to their commu-
nity. The Insurance Service
Office (which determines
the level of fire protection
rating that community
receives) has rated
Magnolia VFD with a 7/9
rating. What this means to
the citizens in Magnolia's
fire district is that if they
are within 1000 feet of a
fire hydrant or a certified
drafting point located on
the Chipola River they will
receive the rating of a 7. If
they are not located within
1000 feet they will receive
the 9 class rating. The rat-
ing of a 9 means that they
are in a recognized fire dis-
trict for insurance purpos-
es. ISO requires all fire
department members
maintain a minimum of 24
hours of structural training


per year to be considered a
rated fire department.
Magnolia Fire
Department volunteers
would like to invite all citi-
zens to stop by and see our
new facility if you have not
already. This station was
built with both a grant from
the USDA and a loan that
was for $40,000. The vol-
unteers have committed all
of their county funding of
$4000 per year for the next
30 years to cover the pay-
ments on this facility.
Donations toward the
reduction of this mortgage
are gladly accepted.
Magnolia Volunteer Fire
Department is also doing a
fundraiser that will be done
on March 13th. They will
be selling smoked Boston
butts for $20. If you would
like to support Magnolia
Volunteers by purchasing a
Boston butt, please call
(850)674-6833 and leave a
message. Any orders of 10
or more will be delivered or
you can pick up at
Magnolia Fire Dept. on
Hwy. 71 N. at either 12:00
or 6:00 p.m. on March
13th.
