GOVERNMENT ISSUES




AT LARGE VOTING



PROPOSAL DISCUSSED



Voters air thoughts at public meeting


BY KELLI PEACOCK,
News Editor
"Our system is
flawed."
That was the state-
ment by Steve Bailey as
he opened a public meet-
ing Monday night to dis-
cuss bringing back at-
large voting, in Calhoun
County. By the end of
the forum, the majority
in attendance seemed to
agree with him.
Back in 1996, a refer-
endum was on the ballot
to change to at-large vot-
ing and Calhoun
Countians were over-
whelmingly in favor of it'
with a more than two t6
one margin. The follow-
ing year, the county com-
mission voted 3-1 to
return to the at-large
method. However, after,
a threat of a federal law-
suit by the NAACP, they
rescinded their vote in
April of 1998.
"For the past 22
-years, I've watched."
Bailey remarked.
"We've elected folks
with good intentions."
Bailey explained that,
over the years, those
elected to the county
commission or school
board have started out
with plaris, to represent
the entire county, but
have often found them-,
selves making decisions
based only on what the
people in their district
want, not necessarily
what is best for the coun-
ty as a whole.
Because these office
holders are elected by
voters only in their dis-
trict, Bailey says, "Quite
a bit, you wind up with


'I've got to worry about
taking.care of my district
because I've got to get.
re-elected.' If they were
elected at-large, they,
Should have everybody's
best interest at heart."
A couple members of
the audience noted that,
in the past, they have
actually heard elected
officials state on issues.
"I think this is best for
the county, but I have to
vote the way the people
in my district want me to
vote."
One man in the audi-
,erice said he feared 'the
expense of running coun-
tywide would keep peo-
ple from seeking office.
"If it's not broke, don't

fix it," he remarked.
Bailey said. he did
believe the system was
broken and said anyone
set to earn" close to
$30,000 a year for four
years would likely be
willing to pay the price to
run countywide.
The main complaint
about 'going, to an at-
large voting system
seems to be the fear that
a mtiority could not-be
elected in Calhoun.
County. "The rumor is
we want to remove
minorities from the
boards," ,Bailey stated.
"If anyone is here for
this reason, you're at the
wrong meeting."
Bailey stressed, "The
problem is not with the
people, but with the sys- '
tem."' He. pointed out
that three county com-
missioners took office
with around 400 votes a
piece. "That means 10
percent of our population
elected the majority of
our governing body.""
"Although the initial
proposal was to bring at-
large voting back to the


entire county, Bailey
stumbled upon a possible
solution that could make
nearly everyone happy.
"Of the 67 counties in
Florida, 40 are at-large,
20 are single member
districts, and seven have
a mixed voting policy,"
he remarked, explaining
that if Calhoun County
were to go the mixed
route, district 4 with the
majority,- of minorities.
could remain a single
member district. but dis-
tridts 1, 2, 3, and 5
would be at-large.
Ken Speights, who
represents district 4 on
the School Board, said a
lot of what was said dt
the forum made sense to
him. "Once you're elect-
ed, you know you're
elected to make the best
decisions," he said,
adding that he felt his
constituents would agree
with the mixed proposal.
"I don't want to make
this a black/white issue,"
he emphasized. "I'm
totally for this mixed dis-

p A Blountstown
woman was arrested
for allegedly burglariz-
ing the home of a rehab
patient.
Lillie Mae
i Middlebrooks, 44, has
been charged with
armed burglary, grand
theft, and carrying a
concealed weapon,:,
along with six counts of
failure to appear.
According to .the
Blountstown Police
Department, Officer
Jody Hoagland was
called to Blountstown
Health and Rehab
where a patient
advised his son stopped
by his residence on
[ Martin Luther King
Drive and found
Middlebrooks inside.
The man said
Middlebrooks did not
have permission to be
at his home. The man's
son said he stopped by
to pick up personal
items for his father and
Middlebrooks entered
a bedroom, locked the


door, then exited with a
.22 caliber pistol in her
hand. The son then left
the home and returned
to the rehab, center to
tell his father what had
happened.
Ofc. Hoagland went
to the home with the
son and spotted
Middlebroks leaving
the residence. After
learning that she had
several active war-
rants, he took her into
custody.
A search turned up
the .22 pistol in her
jacket, along with two
pockets full of loose
change that the son
said came from his
father's residence. A
bag Middlebrooks had
left outside the home
was inspected and the
son alleged several of
the items came from
inside the house, along
with the jacket
Middlebrooks was
wearing.
Ofc. Hoagland dis-
covered a window on
the back door of the
home had been busted
out to gain entry.

BPD now offering
programto hel!,s
you inventory your
personal property
't is a proven fact that
when the economy declines,
property theft crimes
increase. The Blountstown
Police Department has a'
program that will help pre-
vent you from being a vic-
tim of property 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
ypur home and the approxi-
mate 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 valued.
and unusual items, such as
antiques. These photos
should be identified and
stored along with our com-
pleted form. You might also
consider videotaping these
items and storing the tape
with your Household
Inventory Form. When we
have property theft crimes
reported, most often the vic-
tim cannot provide serial
numbers or other important
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 appointment
for an officer to come to
your home to provide this
information. Officers will
also be visiting neighbor-
hoods and knocking on
doors to offer these services.

Liberty Co. United Way



benefit nets over $1300


The Liberty County
United Way Committee
held a special fundraiser on
Friday, February 6, selling
Boston Butts to the com-
munity. The fundraiser
was a huge success, raising
over $1,300 for this year's
campaign.
"This is an important
event for our local United
Way Campaign. Not only
did we raise funds for our
community as every dollar
we raise in Liberty County
stays in Liberty County,
but we also spoke to many
about the important work
that our United Way is
doing right here in Liberty
County" said Robert Hill,
Liberty County United
Way Committee member
and event organizer.
Sheriff Donnie Conyers
and his team prepared 130
Boston Butts, and all were
sold-'before the cooking
even started. Bill
Montford, the 2008 United
Way Big Bend Chairman,
and local resident was on


hand for the day's activities
and stressed the impor-
tance of the Liberty
County United Way. "Not
only does this campaign
assist those in need, but it
also serves as an economic
driver in Liberty County,
investing dollars to ensure
that health and human
services are available to
the citizens that need it'
most."

Mr. Montford acknowl-
edged that this was indeed
a tough year for fundrais-
ing, but thanked the
Liberty County United
Way Committee for being
creative in their fundrais-
ing efforts. He also put out
a call to local residents to
get involved. "I'm asking
for your help ... now ...
and in a big way. I know
times are tough, but that's
only made it worse for our
neighbors who are in need.
Show them you care ... live
united."
Liberty County's 2007


United Way Campaign
invested over $7,500 back
into the community, pro-
viding funding to 12 local
agencies: The Alzheimer's
Project, American Red
Cross, America's Second
Harvest, Big Bend
Hospice, Big Brothers Big-
Sisters, Boy Scouts, Early
Learning Coalition Big
Bend, Elder Care Services,
Fellowship of Christian
Athletes, Office of the
Public Guardian, and
Refuge House.

The 2008 Campaign
has already raised over
$7,000, quite a remarkable
accomplishment. There is
still time to participate as
the campaign will close
February 27. For more
information on ways to
contribute or how to help,
please contact Millie Smith

Choral news
Blountstownr High
School recently held audi-
tions for the role of the
King's children in THE
KING AND I. The
response was overwhelm-
ing! Sixty-seven children,
from the age of 3-12 audi-


tioned for 35 children roles..
Janet Edewaard, BHS
Choral' Director, says, "I
think the reason there was
such a high turnout is that
the Elementary music
teachers in Calhoun
County are doing an out-
standing job. Mrs.
Kimbrel, Mrs. Smith, and
Mrs. Leonard have
instilled a love for musical
theatre in our young stu-
dents."
It was hard to select
only 35 students out of 67,
but that's all our stage can
hold. Please keep watching
the paper for further devel-
opments in the production
of THE KING AND I.


The show will be presented

About Sunshine Week
In 2002, Sunshine
Sunday was launched by
the Florida Society of
Newspaper Editors in
response to increased pub-
lic and legislative aware-
ness of the open govern-
ment laws. After Florida's
trailblazing actions to
establish Sunshine Laws,'
many other states have
adopted Sunshine Sunday,
which resulted in the
American Society of
Newspaper Editors desig-
nating a Sunshine Week,
which started in March of
2005.

Marriage series will begin


Feb. 15, Altha Church of God


Are you looking to
improve or enrich your
marriage? Are you thinking
of taking the plunge? We
take classes to learn to
cook, improve income or
advance employment, so
why not our marriages?
Altha Church of God
invites you to come and join
us on a journey to find out
what God really had in
mind when He said, 'till
death do us part'.
We will start a seminar
for marriages by Jimmy
and Karen Evans entitled
"Marriage on the Rock".


The life-changing teachings
contained in this multi-pur-
pose resource can turn
hurting, disillusioned, and
even divorce-bound mar-
.riages into the dream mar-
riages that God intended
them to be. Powerful and
clearly defined biblical
principles in the series will
help guide and prepare you
for some of the most crucial
undertakings in your life,
family and marriage rela-
tionships.
Classes will begin at
Altha Church of God on
February 15, at 9:30 am


and for those who can not
meet at that time we will
meet again on Wednesday
night at 7:00. We will con-
tinue every Sunday and
Wednesday until the series
is complete. We will be dis-
cussing the foundational
laws of marriage, the most
important issue in mar-
riage, understanding and
meeting your spouse's
needs, raising great chil-
dren as you build a great
marriage, parents: past and
present, the secrets of suc-
cessful money manage-
ment, skills for positive
communication in mar-
riage, and sexual fulfillment
in marriage.
As you can see you will
not want to miss any of the
series. Singles, couples,
young and old are invited to
attend this thought provok-
ing teaching and interaction
on God's design for your
dream marriage.
If. you have questions,
call 762-8294.

Bishop and husband

Bristol from 1988-2003.
The Bishops peacefully
integrated Bristol housing
by purchasing a home in a
previously all white neigh-
borhood. Bishop became a
member of the Pentecostal
Holiness Church, under the
leadership of Rev. Coy and
Linda Collins. The Bishops'
granddaughter, Ebony,
graduated from Liberty
County High School.
According to Bishop,
2003 was the year that
changed her life forever.
After losing her primary
home (in Bristol) to foreclo-
sure'in February 2003, she
went on to lose her hus-
band, Frank, of 34 years in
May 2003. In September

REV. DR. E-DEE (EDNA) BISHOP
found dead in Marianna.
She further reports that her
younger brother died in
October of the same year.
Bishop states that
through' her pain, a min-
istry to the many emotion-
ally broken and hurting
ones was birthed. Since
2005 she has been blessed
to have a weekly radio pro-
gram to minister to those
who are emotionally broken


and hurting and in need of
love and direction. The pro-
gram is entitled; Music and
Counseling for the Soul, on
CBS Stardust 910 AM
with a website at
www.musicandcounseling-
forthesoul.us
While yet a Liberty
County resident, Bishop
had opened a home for
homeless, pregnant women.
Daughters of Dorcas is a
501(C)(3) non profit corpo-
ration. Bishop also served
on several, Liberty County
boards over the years as a
resident.
As a tribute to his mem-
ory, the last stages of the
life of Frank Bishop is
chronicled in a chapter of
the book titled, Facing the
Impending Death of a
Loved One.

strict thing."
Danny Hassig, School
Board member from district
5, was also in attendance. "I
agree with Ken," he stated.
"If you pay taxes we should
all represent you." Hassig
said there is "no,telling what
we could accomplish" if
everyone is working for the
entire good of the county.
'"But until we can collective-
ly, as a group, sit down and.
make decisions on what is
best for the county, it's like
pushing a rock up the hill."
'lTruman Grant, County
Commissioner from .district
4, was also at the forum.
'"We work as county com-
missioners, not district com-
missioners," he remarked.
Bailey urged the com-
missioners and school board
members to speak with
their constituents and asked
the audience members to
help spread the word about
the proposal in the commu-
nity. A follow-up meeting is
set for Thursday, Feb. 26, at
6 p.m. at the WT. Neal
Civic Center.


The Chain
We knew little that morning
That God was going to call
your name.
In life we loved you dearly.
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts
to lose you,
You did not go alone,
For part of us went with you,
That day God
called you home.
.You left us peaceful
memories,
Your love is still our guide:
And though we cannot
see you,
You are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems
the same,
But as God calls us
one by one
The chain will link again.

We Miss You,*
Momn & Dad


The Bounty of
Humility
II Chronicles 7:14
One seminary graduate
came to the sanctuary very
self-confident and sharply
dressed. He began to deliv-
er his first, sermon in, his
first church,' but the words
just would not come to him.
Finally, he burst into tears
and ended up leaving the
platform, obviously broken
and humbled.
Two elderly ladies were
sitting in the front of the
church watching the
preacher. One said to the
other, "'If he'd come in like
he went out, he would have
gone out like he came in.
II Chronicles 7:14 gives
us the answer for personal
revival, humbling oneself
before God, praying for His


forgiveness, seek
face, and turning f
sin. The Psalmist c
