Atlarge


voting


meeting


Monday
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A public meeting to dis-
cuss the proposal to bring
at-large voting to Calhoun
County is set for Monday
night, Feb. 9, at 6 p.m. at,
the WT. Neal Civic Center.
Steve Bailey is one of
the organizers for the meet-
ing and he believes at-large
voting makes more sense
than having single member
districts for the county com-
mission and school board.
"It's time that more
than 10 percent of Calhoun
County elects the governing
body," he remarks. "We
need to get representation
from all of our commission-
ers."
Bailey says he
researched voting records
from the last election. "If
you combine all their votes,
three commissioners were
electedby less than 10 per-,
cent of the population, all
by 300 to 400 votes."

Appraisal


comes m

on 80 acre

school site
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Research continues as
the Calhoun County School
Board studies a potential,
site for a new Blountstown
High School.
Calhoun County
Superintendent Tommy
McClellan tells The County
Record that one of two
requested appraisals has
been received on: the 80
acre site being considered.
The location is on SR 69
between Mason Road and
Pine Island.
"The owner is asking
$6500 an acre for the prop-
erty and the appraisal done
by Bill Carlton from
Tallahassee came in at
,$6500," McClellan reports,
"We are waiting on an
appraisal from Jamie
Lpster of Wewa."
In addition to obtaining
appraisals, McClellan says
other work is underway.
"We're doing title search
and opinion on the property
and that's in the process
now. On Thursday at 2:00,
[Engineer] Greg Bailey
and I are supposed to meet/
with the technical review
conunittee for the county;
That committee includes
Ruth Attaway. Sonny
O'Bryan,. Dowling Parrish,
Tony/ Arrant, and Matt
Fuqua. They have to
review our use and how
we're going to do all that.
Our next step would be to
get soil samples and a sur-
vey. We've got to have traf-
fic counts, but that's further
down the road."
The School Board is set
to meet Tuesday, Feb. 10,
at 5 p.m. and the proposed
site will be on the agenda,
McClellan says he holds a
staff meeting the morning
after all regular board
meetings at 8 a.m. with
'principals and department
heads. He invites anyone
interested to attend.

Farmers Market open



downtown on Saturday b


Blountstown Main
Street is proud to sponsor
the downtown farmers
market featuring fresh pro-
duce, home baked items,
handmade crafts, and origi-
nal artwork, along with live
entertainment.
The River Valley
Marketplace is open the
first Saturday of every
month from 8 a.m. to noon
in the greenspace next to
Wakulla Bank. Upcoming
market dates are Feb. 7,
Mar. 7, and April 4.
The marketplace was a
big hit when it opened last
fall. There have been a


wide variety of booths, but
the crowds are asking for
more fresh produce. If you
are a farmer or have a gar-
den and would like to make
some extra dollars, bring
your goods to the River
Valley Marketplace.
Vendor spaces are com-
pletely FREE, but there
are some requirements:
V Absolutely no flea
markets or yard sales.
V The vendor is respon-
sible for all their set up
items such as tables, tents,
etc. There is no electricity.
If you use a tent, it must be
white or beige so we can


create a cohesive look.
Produce must be ven-
dor grown and sold.
V Please set up a nice
presentation at your booth.
There are limited spaces
available for truck tailgate
vegetable sales.

If you would like to be a
vendor, you must register in
advance. Again, there is no
fee, but you must apply.
Also, Main Street is seek-
ing carriage rides, as well as
entertainers to perform.

BPD program can help residents


inventory property, prevent theft


It is a proven fact that
when the economy
declines, property theft
crimes increase. The
Blountstown Police
.Department has a program.
that will help prevent you
from being a victim of prop-
erty crimes.
Our program consists of
coming into your home and
compiling a list of your per-
sonal property including
description, serial number
and value. If a loss occurred
today, would you be able to
compile such a list? Would
you trust yourself to
remember every item in
your home and the, approx-
imate value of each item?
If you're like most people,
it would be difficult. That
is why we have developed
this Household Inventory


Record. It's a simple fill-in-
the blank worksheet that
takes minutes to complete
but could save you hours of
frustration if you ever have
a loss.
We also encourage you
to photograph higher val-
ued and unusual items,
such as antiques. These
photos should be identified
and stored along with our
completed form. You
might also consider video-
taping these items and stor-
ing the tape with your
Household Inventory
Form. When we have
property theft crimes
reported, most often the
victim cannot provide serial
numbers or other impor-
tant information. When we
locate the property, we can-
not identify who it belongs


to because of the lack of
information provided.
We will also provide you
with a Home Security
Checklist giving you the
steps you can take to
decrease the likelihood that
your home will be targeted
by a burglar and what to do
if you are a victim.

You can take advantage
of this program by calling
the Blountstown Police
Department at 674-5987
and making an appoint-
ment for an officer to come
to your home to provide
this information. Officers
will also be visiting the
neighborhoods and knock-
ing on doors to offer these
services. Together we can
make our city a safer place
to live.


The clubhouse was a popular venue for many years. Above, BHS students enjoy the
junior-senior banquet in 1942,

Set for Feb. 21 at the home of Robert and Kay Trammell


Wine and cheese benefit


planned for the clubhouse


Did you ever attend a
prom, a-banquet, a wed-
ding reception or reunion
at the old log cabin that
once stood at Blountstown
High School? Maybe a
Saturday rught dance or a
birthday party?
The cabin known as
"the clubhouse" has been
part of this community for
many decades. The old
structure holds fond mem-
ories for so many citizens
and former residents.
Thanks to the
Panhandle Pioneer


Settlement, the club-
house, that was in a dilap-
idated state, now has a
chance at being revital-
ized. But your help is
needed to finish the job
they have started.

Thanks to a grant, the
cabin was moved to the
Settlement and stabilized.
Funding is now needed to
get the structure in good
shape so the commurury
can enjoy it once again for
public events and private
parties.


A wine and cheese
benefit has been set for
Saturday, Feb. 21, begin-
ning at 6 p.m. at Longleaf,
the Calhoun County resi-
dence of Robert and Kay
Trammell which is located
off Charles Pippin Road in
the Ocheessee area off of
State Road 69 North.

Tickets are available
for a $25 donation to
Pioneer Settlement with
all proceeds benefiting the
clubhouse renovation.
Call 674-2777 for tickets.

the vast pride on the part of many people, The County Record has
never missed an issue.
I


The family of Bobby Ray
Brunty would like to thank
everyone in the community
for your prayers, kind
words, assistance and
thoughts during the illness
and passing of our loved
one. We would especially
like to thank Dr. Gerald
Skipper and his staff at
Tallahassee Memorial
Family Practice for their
excellent, loving care during
his health decline.
We would like also to
thank the staff at Calhoun-
Liberty Hospital for their
assistance during his stay at
that wonderful facility.
Even though Bob's stay
at Blountstown Health and
Rehabilitation Center was
brief, Becky Halley, Lisa
Powell and Roxie Anderson
and their staffs were profes-
sional and provided Bob
tender, loving care which
made his passing and the
family's grief much more
bearable. You all have our
heartfelt thanks for your
concern and assistance. Mr.
Grant Williams has a won-
derful facility in which our
entire area can have much
pride.
Again, .thank you to the
community for your assis-
tance and prayers during
Bob's passing. Our commu-
nity makes my family know
that Calhoun County is a
wonderful place in which to
live.

of the plan was adopted by
each board.
Bridget Merrill with
Enterprise Florida also
presented an update on the
Rural Economic
Development Catalyst
Project. Calhoun County
was designated as the site
for the project in 2007.
Since then, much work has
been done at the state level
to develop plans for the
project. The next step will
be for pre-engineering and
evaluation studies to be
done so' that an overall
assessment of infrastruc-
ture needs can be deter-
mined.
In addition to the elect-
ed boards, representatives
from the Florida Dept. of
Community Affairs, the
Governor's Office of
Tourism, Trade, and


Economic Development,
and Florida's Great
Northwest attended to
show support of the meet-
ing.
The Chamber plans to
hold the Super Council
meeting at least twice a


year, making it .easier to "
move forward with discus-
sions that affect the county
as a whole. By having all
parties in one room, at one
time, there can be con-
structive discussions that
result in progress.


A vehicle landed in a small creek Sunday afternoon on the curve

Long said he "freaked' and lost control. He was not injured, but
was charged with careless driving. PHOTO BY PAUL MATTICE

To the Editor:
I have been a little sur-
prised by the somewhat
sudden interest in at-large
voting. After a bit of inves-
tigating, I am beginning to
see the reason for the sud-
den interest. Therefore, I
wish to make a few things
clear to those that might,
not be fully aware of the
implications of .such a
change.n .
,)As.younrmay. be aware,
the equitable division \iof
County Commission dis-
tricts and by default the
School Board districts, is
controlled by the State of
Florida Constitution for the
purpose of creating, as near
as possible, a fair distribu-
tion of votes. Now, why
would we need a "fair dis-
tribution of votes" if, we
were going to have at-large
voting? The whole concept
of "fair distribution" is to`
assure that 1) Minority
groups, and 2) small com-
munities, and 3) socio-eco-
nomic concentrations,
receive a fair opportunity
to be represented. You
know, the old "No taxation
without representation",
thing!
Let me ask the good
folks of the Altha communi-
ty, do you want all of the
School Board or County
Commission decision being
made by five representa-
tives from Blountstown?
That, is the 'risk you run
when all County
Commissioners or all
School Board members are
elected At-Large. Under
the present Single-
Member Districts, each
constitutionally structured
district elects from its own
group, thus assuring fair
representation.
Be assured, those that


would deprive you of being
fairly represented have an
agenda that does not have
much of a chance unless
they can control a smaller
voting pool. For example,
the largest community gets
the gold mine, the smaller
communities, get the shaft.
Beware giving up equal
representation for false
promises. It is not for your
benefit these folks are ask-
ing for At-Large voting, it is.
for their benefit. Think
about it, Single-Member
voting is the preferred
choice of a vast majority of
American.
Single-member voting is
not a perfect system, but it
is far better than allowing
one heavily populated area
being able to force consoli-
dation of the public schools
in the county; for example,
just because they have
more votes. Someone has
to speak for Altha, Kinard,
Chason, Scotts Ferry, and
Clarksville, and all other
small communities of
Calhoun County. People do
not give up the right to be
represented by a person of
your choice, from your
community.

Respectfully,
Robert S. Davis
District 1

To the Editor,
Last Thursday, January
29, our local Take Stock in
Children Council inter-
viewed 13 deserving ninth
grade students who applied
for this year's Take Stock in
Children Scholarships.
For anyone who has
ever served on a committee
such as this, you know how
difficult and heart rending
it can be. When you sit


down and talk with these
children, you wish you had
a scholarship to award each
and every one of them, but
of course, that is never the
case.
I want to thank our
council members for the
donated time and energy
they put into serving on the
Take Stock in Children
Council. In order to inter-
view these students, these
council members put their-
own businesses/jobs on hold
for the' day. They don't
obligate themselves to just
this one day of the year
when interviewing scholar-
ship applicants, but work
throughout the year on
fundraisers and anything
else they can do to support
the program. I believe their
involvement shows the
level of genuine concern
and commitment they have
for our community and its
future.
I also want to thank oth-
ers who contributed to our
day of .interviews. For the
second year, Subway gra-
ciously donated sandwiches
for' the students as they
waited to be called for their
interviews. This is always a
favorite part of the process
for the students!
Again this year, W.T.
Neal Civic Center and its
employees graciously host-
ed the interviews. We are
blessed to have such a facil-
ity available for community
use.
I also want to thank
community businesses and
members who have sup-
ported the Take Stock in
Children Scholarship
Program with your dona-
tions. Thank you for recog-
nizing the value of the pro-
gram and wanting to be a
part of making a difference


in our children's lives. It is
your support that enables
.us each year to award.
scholarships to our. stu-
dents.

Letter to the editor,
To the heartless person
that stole the flower
arrangement from my
mom's grave, you succeed-
ed in -making my Tfirst
Chricrni-as .without her
even more unbearable.:
My mom, Nora Deese,
passed away earlier this
year and we all dreaded
trying to get through the
holidays without her.
Imagine my surprise and
pain when I visited her
gravesite on Christmas
Day at Nettle Ridge
Cemetery to find that some
emotionally retarded per-
son stole the only gift I
could give her: flowers on
her final resting place. It
saddens me to know that
there are people who have
no -conscience or soul and
no respect even for families
in mourning. How would
you feel if this was your
Mom?

for killing

black bear
A 54-year old Franklin
County man landed in Gulf
County Jail Friday charged
with killing a black bear.
Larry Joe Colson, DOQB
4/25/54, of Apalachicola,
turned himself in at the
county jail in Port St. Joe
after Fjorida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) investi-
gators told him they had an
arrest warrant for him.
Colson reportedly admitted
to officers he shot a bear on
his Gulf County hunting
lease Jan. 17.
He's charged with inten-
tionally killing a threatened
species, a black bear. The
charge is a third-degree
felony, punishable by up to
five years imprisonment
and up to a $5,000 fine.
; "Initially, uniformed
patrol officers received
information that someone
claimed to have killed a
Florida panther on private
property in Gulf County,"
FWC investigator Steve
Thomas said. "They made
an on-site visit Jan. 20 to
the property where the inci-
dent supposedly occurred,
and at first, they didn't find
anything.
"They returned on Jan.
22 and found the remains of
an adult male bear. Colson
was identified as a suspect,
was interviewed and admit-
ted shooting the bear."
Thomas said no panther
remains were found during
the visits to the property.
Officers seized Colson's
Remington .30-06 rifle as
evidence.

sonally thank our faculty
for the dedication they
show in the classroom
every day. Our students are
really showing .their merit
and we all should be proud.
I also want to thank our
administration and h1,
physical plant for their sup-
'port. Other schools do not
seem to have the over-
whelming support we
receive here at Chipola and
it really makes a difference.
Special thanks to Joy Ree
Ashmore for volunteering,
to keep the statistics for the
tournaments and to Brain
Bowl assistant coach
Robert Dunkle for the
countless hours he dedi-
cates in helping to prepare

Are you in abusive relationship?


Teen dating violence is common


The Florida
Department of Health
(DOH) and the Florida
Department,. of 'Children
and Families (DCF) join
agencies nationwide in rec-
ognizing February 2-6 as
National Teen Dating
Violence Awareness and
Prevention Week.
'Dating violence is con-
trolling, abusive and
destructive behavior in a
romantic relationship. It
may include physical, emo-
tional and sexual abuse.
According to the "Study
on Teen Dating Violence"
(Teenage Research
Unlimited, 2005), .one in
five teens in a serious rela-
tionship reports having
been hit, slapped or pushed
by a partner: Over 30 per-
cent of teenagers do not tell
anyone about being victim-
ized by their partner. Less
than 3 percent of teens
report the abuse to police
or anotherauthority figure,
and only 3 percent tell a
family member about the
violence.

Local students

to compete at

Literature,

Language Fest

BY BARBARA HATHAWAY
Calhoun County School Board
Office

On Friday, February 13,
our local junior and senior
high school students will
have the opportunity to par-
ticipate in the Nineteenth
Annual Throssell Literature
and Language Festival to be
held on Chipola Campus.
The Festival will consist
of competitions in composi-
tion, literature, grammar
and mechanics, speech, oral
interpretation, humanities,
reading, and Spanish lan-
guage. Individual awards
will be given to winners.
We want to wish our stu-
dents well in the competi-
tion; we know we will be
represented well. We also
want to invite local support
for the competition. If you
can, go and support our stu-
dents on Chipola Campus
for the Festival.


The National Crime
Prevention Council offers
the following tips to help
teens who may be in an
abusive relationship:
V Report the abuse to
your parents, a school offi-
cial, the police or another
adult you trust.
V Know that you aren't
alone. Teens from all differ-
ent backgrounds nation-
wide are involved or have
been involved in a violent
relationship.
V Understand that you
have done nothing wrong;.
your abuser's violence is
not your fault.
V Know that you can
get help from professionals
at rape crisis centers, coun-
seling centers or other
health care facilities.
S Keep a daily log of the
abuse for evidence.
V Do not meet the abus-
er alone, and avoid being
alone at your school, job or
on your way. to and from
places.
V Always tell someone
where you are going and
when you'll be back.

On January 27th, the

These BHS choral students
:met with other high school

cian Dr. Andre Thomas.
He is the head of the
Choral Department at

tice. Nevertheless at the
end of the day, it all came
together in a grand and
impressive performance!

Have a smoking complaint?

Details on how to file one


Do you remember going
to eat at a restaurant and
having to ask the waiter for
a seat in the non-smoking
section? Then you had to
pass through the clouds of
smoke to reach your seat
and even then being sur-
rounded by the endless flow
of toxic stench? Gone are
the days of having to hold
your breath while you try
to enjoy your meal.
The Florida Legislature
enacted the Florida Clean
Indoor Air Act (FCIAA) in
1985 to protect people from
the health hazards of sec-
ondhand smoke. In
November 2002, seventy-
one percent of Florida's cit-
izens voted for a
Constitutional Amendment
to prohibit smoking in all
enclosed indoor work-
places. The smoke free law
became effective July 1,
2003. Now you may be
wondering who is responsi-
ble for the enforcement of
this law. The Department
of Health and the
Department of Business
and Professional Regulation
are responsible.
The Department of
Health enforces the FCIAA
in all facilities that are not


regulated by the
Department of Business
and Professional
Regulation.
Listed here is the infor-
mation that you will need to
file a complaint.
Name of workplace
(where violation is occur-
ring);
The mailing address,
city, county and zip code;
Nature of the violation
(ex, smoking in an enclosed
indoor workplace); and
If available, provide a
telephone number and
name of the person in
charge of the workplace.
To file a complaint call
toll free 1-800-337-3742.
Remember, second hand.
smoke causes cancer!
