SCHOOL LEADERS HONORED


LINK BARBER NAMED


TEACHER OF THE YEAR


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
With a prankster's reputation at
Blountstown Middle School, Link
Barber is subject to some name calling.
As BMS Principal Neva Miller told
the crowd at' the Teacher of the Year
awards ceremony last Wednesday after-,
noon, he is often called the "Missing
Link" or the "Weakest Link" for some of
his crazy antics around campus.
But when School Superintendent
Tommy McClellan introduced him as the
2009 Teacher of the Year, he took on the
title of one of the strongest links in the
Calhoun County School System.
Barber's career began in 1998 at
BMS where he spent two years teaching
seventh and eighth grade science out of
field. "It was in my third year that I was
moved into math and have taught in this
field ever since," he remarks, adding that
in addition to teaching sixth and seventh
grade math, "I am the athletic director,

COMMUNITY ISSUES


Local legislators address

various issues at forum


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Despite the fact that the
economy is in dire straits,
local legislators have com-
mitted to do all they can for
Calhoun County.
That was clear Monday
night when Senator Al
Lawson and State
Representative Marti Coley
hosted a forum at the
Calhoun County Extension
Office.
"Your local government
is facing challenges, agen-
cies are facing challenges
and we in the state are fac-


ing challenges," Coley told
the audience. "I am looking
out for the small counties
and know you are the back-
bone of the state."
Lawson agreed. "It is
very important to me to
fund infrastructure in the
counties because I know in
most rural areas we have a
lower tax base."
Calhoun County
Commissioner Dan Wyrick
(District 2) addressed the
legislators and expressed
concern over state regula-
tions and mandates that

When school offi-
cials spent $996,000
on architectural and
engineering fees to
plan for a new high
school a year ago, all
were under the impres-
sion that those fees
would be reimbursed
once $25 million in
special facilities fund-
ing was approved by
the legislature. Last
week, state auditors
advised that would not
be the case.
"The auditors said
since the fiscal year
closed June 30, so they
won't refund from 'the
previous year,"
Superintendent
Tommy McClellan
tells The County
Record. He added that
everyone involved in
the process from the
School Board office
was shocked' to learn
the reimbursement of
nearly $1 million in
fees paid out of the
reserve fund would not
be reimbursed. In


SUPERINTENDENT

.addition, money being
spent now' on the proj-
ect before the funding
is approved in June
would also not be
refunded since it is
being spent in the cur-
rent fiscal year that
ends June 30.
McClellan contact-
ed Spessard Boatright
of the Department of
Education and he sug-
gested seeking proviso
language in the legisla-
tion for the project that
would allow for the
reimbursement.

CRIME


Woman


faces


forgery


charges
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
An Altha woman is fac-
ing eight counts of forgery
for allegedly creating bogus
documents to appear as
though her husband had
paid off his probation fees.
Christina Louise Hanna,
40, was taken into custody
on Friday by Calhoun
County authorities.
According to a Sheriff's
Office report, the case
began back in December
when Lt. Mark Mallory
was contacted by Probation
Officer Randy Howell of the
Florida Department of
Corrections. Howell
advised that probationer
William Hanna Had pre-
sented forged documents to
his probation officer.
Officials first suspected for-
gery when Hanna offered a
document on DOC letter-
head that showed the secre-
tary of the department as
Jim McDonough who is not
the current secretary. The
letter advised that Hanna's
probation had been termi-
nated. The format was dif-
ferent from a typical DOC
letter and used poor gram-
mar, raising more suspi-
cions. The woman whose
name was 'signed on the let-
ter said it was not her signa-
ture and she had not pro-
duced the letter.
Seven documents were
presented that appeared to
be receipts from JPay, a
service used to pay court
ordered fines. The payment
receipts indicated Hanna
had paid around $700.
However, a printout from
DOC revealed only $10
had been received.
Hanna advised that his
wife, Christina, handled his
payments. Inv. Michael
Bryant questioned her and
she initially denied the for-
geries, but later admitted
she had forged the docu-
ments without her hus-
band's knowledge. She
allegedly stated she used
the money for probation
fines to pay other bills, then
scanned documents into
her computer, cut and past-
ed them together. She
admitted to all the forgeries
except one.

Florida Trail Ride planned to benefit Wounded Warrior Project



In honor of Lt. Col. Edwards


BY JOHANN VAN LIEROP

Marine Ty Edwards, a
native of Blountstown, was
critically wounded in an
attack in Afghanistan back
in October. He has been
recovering in a Tampa hos-
pital, but recently returned
to Bethesda for surgery.
This week, Johann Van
Lierop, a U.S. Army
Captain who is also from
Blountstown, shares plans
for a Florida Trail Ride in
honor of Ty.
Thank you for consider-
ing a donation to the
Wounded Warrior Project.
Many of the nearly 40,000
veterans wounded in Iraq
and Afghanistan are deal-
ing with life-changing
injuries that preclude them
from working in their area
of training or educational
experience.
Among many other
services, Wounded Warrior
Project provides a bridge
between VA disability and
medical treatment and the


professional world by offer-
ing educational, vocational,
and technical training to
wounded veterans. These
services help wounded
service members acquire
new job skills or learn to
cope with their injuries to
perform their previous
occupations. The services
provided are not a handout
and are not duplicative of
VA benefits. Wounded
Warrior Project enables,
wounded veterans who
want to work hard, suc-
ceed, and provide for their
families. The Wounded
Warrior Project is an
extremely efficient charity,
with nearly 80 cents of
every dollar donated going
directly to wounded veter-
ans.
Lt. 'Col. Ty Edwards,
USMC, who was severely
wounded in Afghanistan in
2008, has graciously
allowed us to conduct this
fundraising effort-the Lt.
Col. Ty Edwards Florida
Trail Ride-in his honor,


LT. COL. TY EDWARDS


'While Ty and other wound-
ed veterans receive top-
notch medical care and
other benefits from the mil-
itary.and the VA, eventual-
ly many in their position
will benefit greatly from
Wounded Warrior Project
services.
The Florida Trail Ride
will occur over Memorial
Day Weekend 2009, dur-

will ride over 130 miles on
various greenways and bike
trails as they make their

Tampa, where Ty is receiv-
ing ongoing treatment. At
the conclusion of the ride,
Ty and his family will take
part in a ceremony where
the funds raised in Ty's
honor are presented to the
VWounded Warrior Project.
Our .goal is $10,000, and
over $1,000 has already
been donated.
Your gift is tax
deductible. This means
that if you itemize and
meet or exceed the stan-
dard IRS deductions, the
actual cost of your donation
will be much less than its
face value. While I finder-

tough economic times to
find money to donate, I ask
that you prayerfully consid-
er doing so. I encourage

Eric J. O'Bryan and
Dianna E. Glaze are proud to
announce the birth of their
son,. Eric. Michael O'Bryan.
He was born. February 2,

Have you ever been
asked by your
physician," Do you
smoke?" There's a real
good reason why they ask
their patients that. If you
are a smoker, it increases
your risk of having heart
disease, stroke, many dif-
ferent forms of cancer, lung
and vascular diseases.
Chronic diseases are
rarely resolved sponta-
neously and they are gener-
ally not cured by medida-
tion or prevented by vac-
cine. What do you know
about tobacco and it's link
to chronic diseases?
Smoking is the primary
cause of chronic diseases
such as chronic obstructive
pulmonary disease
(COPD), including chronic
bronchitis and emphysema.
These diseases don't wait
till you are in your 60s or
70s to attack your lungs,
they can affect your life as
early as your 40s.
Too many people spend
their hard earned cash
every day to buy a product
that, used the way it is
intended to be used, will
cost them more hospital
and doctor bills than a rich
man can afford.
Did you know that
tobacco addiction is among
the leading preventable
causes of morbidity and
mortality in Florida and in
the United States?
Cigarette use alone
results -in an estimated
,430,000 deaths each year
in. the U.S. That total
includes 28,700 deaths in
Florida. That means a lot
of good folks who started a
habit that cost them their
lives.
The tobacco industry
spends close to $1 billion in
Florida annually to market
its products, more than any

other state. That's a lot of
money! Because so many
of our family and friends
are dying from the use of
their products, the Tobacco
Industry needs new users.
Unfortunately, many of
those new users are our
very own children.
Please, if you know
someone who wants to stop
smoking before the chronic
diseases attack them, have
them call the toll free
Florida QuitLine (1-877-
U-CAN-NOW)and get the
help they need before it is
too late.
Cessation classes (quit
smoking classes) are held at
the Calhounr-Liberty
Hospital. Classes are con-
ducted by Aimee Hanvey.
Aimee can be reached at
850-674-5411, ext 209. If
you would like to have
classes held at your church
or civic organization, con-
tact Julie VanderMeer,

BY COACH ROBBIE SMITH

The 2008/2009 girls
weightlifting season is in
the books after the state
final last weekend. The
season saw the Wildcats go
undefeated with three sec-
tion champions, five state
qualifiers and one state
medalist.
Stephanie Mayo had a
rough day, but was still able.
to finish 4th with a 315
total. The total was only 5
pounds behind the state
champion who had a 320.
This is Mayo's second state
medal and she has one
more year left.
Carrie Tucker just
missed medaling in, the. 129
weight class. Carrie got all
3 bench presses, finishing
with a 140 and just missed
145 on the clean and jerk.
Tucker has worked really
hard in weightlifting the


past two years and will be
missed greatly next year.
Serena Bradford also
went 3 for 3 on the bench
press finishing with 165.
She just missed on, 160
pounds on the clean and
jerk. The lift would have
got her 6th. Bradford still
has three years left to chase
a state medal.
I Senior Whitney Melvin
had the best meet of her
career, finishing with a 250
total. Elizabeth Gratz had
a. great day on the bench,
finishing with 135 and
totaling 255. It was
Whitney and Elizabeth's
first year of weightlifting
and both girls did a great
job.
That wraps up the girls
weightlifting for another
year. Next. year's team
should have state champion
contenders. Stay tuned.

Calhoun County School
District announces the
completed implementation
of MealpayPlus, an online
prepayment system, offer-
ing parents a safe, easy and
convenient way to prepay
for their student's school
meals. MealpayPlus was
created by Horizon
Software International, a
global leader in technology
and services for food serv-
ice operations.
"We are excited that
MealpayPlus is now live at
Calhoun County School
District and that their stu-
dents and parents can
begin benefiting from the
system," said Tina
Bennett, Director of
MealpayPlus at Horizon
Software. "Calhoun
County Schools District has
assigned each student an
individual online account
that parents can access
anytime at
MealpayPlus.com. Not
only will Calhoun County
School District parents
appreciate the convenience
of the system, but they can
now be involved in their
student's school meal
choices to ensure they are
making healthy food deci-'
sions, even while they're
away from home."

dent has purchased on a
specific day. The software
allows parents to view their
student's balance at any
time, as well as to check
payment history. In addi-
tion, parents can choose to
have email confirmations of
payments and low balance
reminders sent, and pay-
ments can be made quickly
and easily using a credit
card or check online or via
telephone. Optional Wallet
and Auto-Replenish fea-
tures enable parents to set
a low balance amount that
will automatically replenish
their student's account
when it drops to a specified
balance, if they choose.
"The goal of
MealpayPlus is to not only
make the school meal


process easier and more
efficient for schools and
parents, but to also open up
the lines of communication
between schools, parents
and students about healthy
eating choices," said
Bennett. "When parents
are aware of what their stu-
dents are eating in the cafe-
teria, they have the oppor-
tunity to educate them and'
talk about nutrition and
smart food decisions. We
believe that will have a
huge impact on students'
lifelong health."

November 16, 1952 -
February 14, 2009

You never said "I'm leaving"
you never said goodbye
you were gone before
we knew it,
and only God knew why.

A million times we
needed you,
a million times we cried.
If love alone could
have saved you,
you hnever-would have died.

In life we loved you dearly,
in death we love you still.
In our hearts you
hold a place,
that no one could ever fill.

It broke our hearts
to lose you,
but you didn't go alone.
For a part of us
went with you,
the day God took you home.

We love you Momma

Why do we
have
funerals? A
plaque in our
front office
sheds some,.
light on the
value of a
funeral
ceremony.
"THE


FUNERAL...Helps confirm the
reality and finality of
death... Provides a climate for
mourning and the expression of
grief...Allows the sorrows of
one to become the sorrows of
many...Is one of the few times
love is given and not expected
in return...Is a vehicle for the
community to pay its
respects.. .Encourages the
affirmation of religious faith... Is
a celebration of a-life that has
been lived as well as a
sociological statement that a
death has occurred,'"
The funeral will help you begin

with great comfort and
satisfaction in the months and
years to come.

Teacher of the Year continued


co-director of the
Panhandle Conference,
and coach middle school
football and high school
girls basketball."
Having the chance to
influence.the lifb of a young
person is one of the great-
est rewards Link has found
through this career path.
"Most people can't imagine
working in a middle school.
environment or being sur-
rounded by students in that
particular age group," he
says. "But I enjoy the high
energy and enthusiasm
that these students bring to
school with them everyday.
Middle school is such a
critical time in a young per-
son's life, and as a teacher
you have an opportunity to
have a positive impact on
that life. I enjoy teaching


and do my best to make it
fun for my students. I strive
to make my students enjoy,
not fear, mathematics.
Seeing the light switch turn
on when a student 'gets' a
concept is a pretty cool
thing."
Barber says most of his
students would probably
describe him
as...well...crazy. "I couldn't
argue with that," he
remarks. "I do act crazy at
times in the classroom, but
it is all because I enjoy
what I am doing. I try to
make mathematics fun for
my students so if I have to
break out in a song or
dance to get a.point across,
I pick up my microphone
(pencil) and start singing. I
try to make class engaging
and interesting for all my


students in hopes that their
fears of math will go away."
In his bag of tricks are a
variety of methods to keep
students interested.
"Collaborative learning
and technology are used as
often as possible to keep
students engaged in their
lessons," says Barber.
"Activities such as 'Mitdle
School Inventor' and the
'Build a Bridge Project'
also gets their creative
minds going."
Although his work is
enjoyable, it's definitely not
easy. He says the most"
frustrating part of being a
teacher is "trying to reach
those students that are full
of potential, but for some


reason choose not to use
it."
But at the end of the
day, he is glad he chose his
profession. And bumping
into former students he has
impacted makes him know
he is doing something
worthwhile.
"About four years ago I
was pumping gas at the
Southern Express and I
saw a car ride by and blow
its horn," Barber recalls.
"The car immediately
.turned around and came
back to the store, pulled up
beside my truck and out
popped one of my former
students and football play-
ers. He began telling me
about what he was doing


with his life now. He told
me about how he was get-
ting in trouble here in town
so he had moved away to
South Carolina. He went
on to tell me that he had a
job now with a construction
company, was married, and
had a new baby boy at
home. We talked for
awhile and I told him how
proud I was about how
things had turned out for
him. As we departed I told
him congrats and that I
wanted to sed his son play-
ing football for me in a cou-
ple of years back here in
Blountstown. He smiled
and replied back, 'Oh, you
betcha! I hope you will be
teaching him math too.'


CRIME REPORT


BY KELLI PEACOCK, NEWS EDITOR


Parents, grandparents busted for pot
A Calhoun County couple accused of smoking pot in
front of their small children have been arrested on drug
charges, along with the grandparents of the little ones.
Timothy and Melinda Grimsley, along with Melinda's
parents, David and Roxanne Nicklin, were all arrested
Sunday for possession of more than 20 grams of marijua-
na and drug paraphernalia.
According to the Calhoun County Sheriff's Office,
Deputy Jared Nichols escorted a representative of the.
Florida Department of. Children and Families to the
Grimsley home on Pipeline Drive after a complaint of
their drug use in front of two children, ages six and four. A
walk through inspection of the home revealed a quart size
plastic bag of marijuana, along with, rolling papers, a
grinder and roach clips under the Grimsleys' bed. The
total weight of the pot was 63 grams.
The DCF representative spoke with the grandparents
and advised a more thorough inspection was necessary.
Mrs. Nicklin then turned over a ceramic -bong and clear
plastic container with less than 20 grams of cannabis, as
well as several packs of rolling papers, two pairs of forceps,
scissors, aN grinder, and homemade pipe. Dep. Nichols
looked under the grandparents' bed and discovered a gal-
lon size bag of marijuana weighing 49 grams.

That day, as I drove away,
I realized that it was the lit- ;
tle things like this that
made teaching worth-
while."

For those considering a
career in teaching, Barber
offers these words of
advice: "If you have a love
and passion for kids and
want to make a positive i
impact on them, do it. The
great thing about teaching
is that it is something new
every single day of the
year. No two days. are
alike. It is rewarding, excit- '
ing, time consuming, and
heart breaking at times,
.but the good days definitely
outweigh the bad days." -
