Rescue workers
searched throughout the
night Monday for a missing
boater who was found safe
and- sound early. Tuesday
morning.
The case began just
before midnight when Dep.
Eddie Dalton \ was dis-
patched to the Blountstown
Landing where he met
Edward Jamnes Powers who
was searching for a fellow
boater. Powers advised he
and Adam Lambert 22,
were floating down the
river when Lambert decid-
ed to exit the boat and go
frog gigging. After he failed
toW return in 10 minutes,
Powers became concerned,
Lambert didn't answer his
calls, so he phoned his
uncle. Brandon Price, who
joined him in the search.
When Lambert failed to
turn up, they called author-
ites.
Officers from the Florida
Fish and Wildlife
Commission joined sheriff's
deputies on the river, along
with members of the
Calhoun County .Search
and Rescue Team and the
K-9 unit from Calhoun
Correctional Institution.
After searching for six
hours, the K-9 team discov-
ered Lambert safe on
Phantom Island just south
of Blountstown. Authorities
speculate heavy fog was a
factor in Lambert getting
lost.

e YOUR SUCCESS IS MY BUSINESS


Who knows you?
If you're in business,
whether the business
owner, salesperson of the
business, or a team mem-
ber who wants to help the
company grow, the more
people that know you, the
better the opportunities are
for sales and thus profits.
But how do people know
you and that you have
products/services to offer?
Of course if they drive
by your store front (and pay
attention) people know it.
Maybe they've looked and
found your name/number
in the Yellow Pages. But
there are many other ways
-to be "known" as well.
Do. you have a web
page? This virtual store is
open for you 24/7/365.
They're simple to start and
simple to keep updated. In
today's global economy, I
can't imagine any business
not having this type web
presence.
And you can use social
media networks to your
advantage here too!
In my opinion, outside of
a website, the best second
place, to market yourself or
your business is via
YouTube. I don't under-
stand why every business,
doesn't have a YouTube site
as well!? It's free, you can
post a lot of information
about your self or your busi-
ness, and you can upload
videos of your products and
services in action as well as
upload customer testimoni-
als. Regardless of whether
you own a gas station, con-


venience store, restaurant,
hotel, bank, medical facili-
ty, church, grocery store,
etc., YouTube can,help you
be "known".
Other social networks
such as MySpace and
Facebook can be used to
promote your business too.
You can connect with others
and post updates, news,
sales promotions, seminars,
etc. for others to see.
Additional ways to be
"known" include joining
your local Chamber of
Commerce (even if you're
an individual), joining your
favorite charity or civic
organizations, writing arti-
cles for your industry
newsletters/blogs.
Regardless of what you join,
be sure to actively partici-
pate, not just be another
number in the group.
If you're serious about
growing your
business/career, then over-
deliver on the value you
provide, always grow per-
sonally and provide world-
class service in all you do,
work to become "known"
by as many people you can
and watch your business
grow!
Until next time, remem-
ber: "Your Success Is My
Business!" T

that was very successful at
previous hospitals, includ-
ing my last one in the Air
Force.
Since then, I've been
. very humbled and appre-
ciative of the response to
this. avenue of getting
rooms and areas upgraded
in the hospital,, especially
when we, have had few
resources to do so. That
response has been out-
standing!
For example, Wakulla
Bank adopted and upgrad-
ed our lobby. Ms Ruth,
Attaway added some fund-
irig to this from the wonder-
ful donations she helped
generate, including from
Preble Rish Engineering
and the Gulf Asphalt
Company.
The lobby is very nice
now, with fresh paint,
paintings, new furniture,
and beautiful curtains and
window' treatments. The
big screen"TV has helped
also as an ever increasing,
stream of patients wait for
various tests or friends and
families visit inpatients.
The new registration
area was completed with
funds from Mr. Elbert
Shelton. It's very nice with
improved privacy now for
our patients-as they register
for tests.
The dining hall was
adopted by the Rotary
Club. It was really spruced
up and thdy also purchased
new tables and chairs.
They've been 'extremely
supportive of the hospital
as you can see!
.The Chamber of
Commerce Board adopted
and created a new Chapel
for us. It's a very nice, quite
and serene area with some
beautiful photos by Elam
Stoltzfus. There is a prayer
bench, a cross, and of
course, a Bible. Very nice,
comfortable chairs were
donated by Danny Ryals.
It's always available for use'
by our patients, their fami-
lies, and our staff, including
our physicians. It's used a
lot!
Inpatient rooms are
being renovated as we
speak. The Gregory Family
from Bristol decorated one
in a beautiful beach design.
Vicki and Harold Montford
recently completed one
that's so nice, others are
modeling their' plans after
it. Several other rooms will
be done soon by others,
including Mrs. Hazel
Montford and the Smith

The name says it all:
Helping Hands.
A group of volunteers,
donated items from the
community, and a down-
town thrift store have been
combining to help neigh-
bors in need for the past 18
years in Calhoun and
Liberty counties.
If you haven't stopped
by the Helping Hands
Thrift Store on North Pear
Street in Blountstown late-
ly, it's definitely time to
visit. The store has been
completely revamped and
hew manager, Johnny
Roberts, says business is.
booming.
"Although it's slow
everywhere, our business
has gone up," 'Roberts
reports. "The Lord has
blessed us."
Roberts is hopeful the
organization will be able to
pay off their building and
put more money back into
the community this year.
"It's rewarding to see we
are able to help people in
need because I have been
in need of help my own self
before," Roberts remarks.
Helping Hands offers
assistance in the form of
clothing and food voucher ,
household items to verified
victims of home damage,
(fire, storms, relocation,
divorce, etc.), and help with
prescription medication,
eye exams, and glasses to,
persons with -limited or no
insurance. Helping Hands
collaborates with doctors,
pharmacists, agencies,
churches and other non-
profit organizations in the
community to help assure
requested help is truly
needed.
"We had two families in
last week that had just
moved here," says Roberts.
"They had nothing. We
gave each child five sets of
clothing, shoes, even toys."
The mother of one of the
families was so touched,
she joined Helping Hands
as a volunteer this week.

WORKING WITH TODDLERS TO
SCHOOLAGERS INFO YOU
MIGHT WANT TO KNOW
As -a Director with five years experience 't-Arround the Way
Childcare Center in Blountstown, I have learned and grown with my
business. My center specializes in the ages ranging from toddler to
school agers. I have had many wonderful children in my facility, and
would like to share some things I think are important facts to think
about. 1. believe the toddler stage is very important.in a childs life. It's
a time between infancy and childhood when a child learns and grows
in many different ways. -Although children have their own time table,
and growth is different for each child. Most toddlers will learn to walk,
talk, and solve problems. They start to learn to be independent, and
yet, they are still very dependent. Toddlers are very concerned with
their own' needs and ideas. This is why we cannot expect them to
share:
By the age three and four they are known as pre-schoolers. They
.usually have taken an interest in being toilet trained. But remember
children do things in their own time. By this age they have become
.more independent. 'They begin to take an active interest in the world
around them. They are eager to learn, and 'they learn best by*
experiencing and doing. Pre-schoolers need simple rules so 'they
know the boundaries of acceptable behavior. They may still have
trouble getting along with other children, and sharing may still be
difficult. Games and activities can help them learn to share and take
turns. At around age four their imagination-is very active. They start
to enjoy being with other children. Be sure to give them praise for
their achievements. They are usually very talkative, and can
understand basic concepts such as numbers, size, and colors just to
name a few.
Ages five, six, seven are considered school-agers. They are usually
excited about starting school. It is important to set limits. Let them
know what is expected of them. Each child needs to feel special and
cared about. By this age they play well'in groups, but also need'time
for themselves. Many school agers have a best friends and an enemy.
"Tattle-telling" becomes a big pat in their daily life. This can be done
for two reasons; to help them understand the rules, and to get an
adult's attention. Older school age children can show their ability to be
independent by being disobedient, using back talk, or being rebellious.
They see things as either "black or white". All children misbehave
sometimes. This is just a normal part of growing up. Their behavior is
greatly influenced by the people and environment around them. They
need guidarice from adults to stay on task and achieve their best.
These children are our future. As parents, teachers;, and caregivers
we need to be role models, and help them become great members of
our society. We need to encourage them to be the best they can be.
This is what I believe, and this is why I do what I do.

Effects of secondhand

FROM PAMELA McDANIEL
Tobacco Prevention
Specialist for Calhoun
County
'A three year study by,
the U.S. Centers for
Disease Control and
Prevention showed a 41%
drop in heart attack hospi-
talizations after Pueblo,
Colorado, in 2003 imple-
.mented their workplace
smoking ban.
Here in Florida we have
the Florida Clean Indoor
Air Act that protects us
from exposure to second-
hand smoke in workplaces,.
restaurants and other pub-,
lic places. But what about
our homes? There's no law
to protect the non-smokers;
who live in a home with:
smokers. It's up to the fam-
ily to protect one another.
As a young child grogwiig
up in a house filled with cig-.
arette smokers, I was con-
tinually breathing in sec-
ondhand smoke. I had no
idea what the clouds of
toxic stench were doing to.
mpy lungs. Later 'in' life
when I. gave birth to my
son. I still had no real
understanding about sec-
dndhand smoke. My hus-
band' was still smoking and
doing it inside our home.'
He wasn't the only family
member who was smoking.
Unfortunately, most of my
family looked like chimney
pipes. When our son was in
kindergarten, he' was diag-
hosed with asthma. I was
devastated. Why my baby?
What was the cause? Why,
Was he hurting? I was
Shocked to learn that the
cause was my family's sec-
ondhand smoke. Now that
i had seen the real effects of
secondhand smoke, I began
toi learn more. about the,
Silent killer. ,
See, many of my family
members began smoking
back before there was any
real knowledge about what
happens to the body. Today
there is tons of research.
Here are a few facts:
Fact: Secondhand
smoke is a mixture of two
forms of smoke that comes
r om burning tobacco.'The


side, stream smoke comes
from the end of a lighted
cigarette and mainstream
smoke is exhaled by the
smoker.
Fact:. Secondhand
smoke is classified as a
known human carcinogen
,(cancer causing agent) by
the US Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA).
Fact: Tobacco smoke
contains over 4,000 chemii-
,cal compounds.. More than
60 are known or suspected.
to cause cancer.
Fact: There are an esti-
mated 35,00.0 deaths in the
US each year from heart
disease in non-smokers who
live with smokers'.
Fact. Cardiovascular
disease kills approximately
460,000 women per year,
approximately one woman'
per minute.
Fact: An infant who is
exposed to secondhand
smoke as, a developing fetus
may be at increased risk of
sudden infant death syn-
drome (SIDS).
Fact: Chemicals from
tobacco smoke reach breast
tissue and are found in
breast milk.

On a side note, I would
like to thank the Calhoun-
Liberty Hospital for 'being
smoke free and being dedi-
cated to the health of the
community it serves.
Remember, there is no
safe level of exposure to
secondhand smoke!
If you choose to smoke,
please take it outside.

adopted in memory of
loved ones of these families.
Covenant Hospice will
soon begin work on the
patient room they've
adopted. We have a great
relationship with this great
organization. They do won-
derful work.
The Emergency Room
is being expanded and ren-

donated by Mr. Shelton
and others.
Next to be renovated is
our nursing station. The
Dupont Foundation will
make this possible through
a kind and generous dona-
tion, again as a result of
Ms. Ruth's great efforts.
This will help both the
appearance and the effi-


ciency of this key area of
the hospital.

hospital. Keep Calhoun

beautiful flower gardens in
our front yard. I can't wait
until Spring when the roses
begin to bloom again.
The Blountstown
Mainstreet organization
that is doing so many good
things throughout our com-
munity adopted and
installed beautiful and
functional patios on either
side of our entrances. With
flower gardens, stones, bird
feeders, fountains, and
benches, they really added
a nice touch to the front of
the hospital.
Ms. Doris Traylor was


instrumental in both of
these outside projects. We
offer our congratulations to
her on Citizen of the Year.
Well deserved!
The latest area adopted
is the Emergency Roonrri

Southland Emergency

company that staffs our
ER, adopted it and will
begin renovating it soon.
They are an excellent
group of physicians' and this
action demonstrates their
commitment and dedica-
tion to this hospital and
community.

There are still a few
inpatient rooms left to be
adopted. Several other
farhilies and organizations


have indicated interest in
"adopting" 'and I feel cer-
tain we'll have more won-
derful upgrades done soon.
We also hope to upgrade
some larger areas. such as
the laboratory, radiology,
including the mammogra-
phy room and some admit-
istrative areas as well. So if
you're looking for a good,
worthwhile community

Calhoun County's history is being told through a heritage book currently being put together with
plans for publication in the summer of 2009. Here is one of the stories that will be included.


BLOUNTSTOWN

SELECTED AS ..

COUNTY SEAT no

By Mary Ann Flowers" .


"im


Seventy-nine voters selected Blountstown as
the County Seat of Calhoun County. That was
just 118 years ago.
Those facts are a part of some really interesting
history, which one might gather by pouring over
the dust-covered records in the Clerk's office at
the County Courthouse. Browsing through
thumbworn and aged-colored volumes in the sanc-
torum, one can pick up threads that have twined
our history of Calhoun County together.
It was on February 2nd, 1880, that a group of
citizens decided they wanted to change the loca-
'tion of the county seat. Since. 1862, the
Courthouse had been in Abe Springs. John M.
Bush was Sheriff at that time and William Clark
was the Clerk. The Board of County
Commissioners was composed of W. J. Rivers,
Chairman, 0. W. Donalson, A. 'J Wood, Sr., James
W. Smith and J. B. Sone.-
At a meeting of the board, a petition signed by
111 qualified voters asked the Commissioners to
call an election under authority of a Special Act of
the State Legislature of 1872 for the purpose of
determining whether the County Seat should be
changed or not. .
The board called the election for April 1st and
the managers in precinct one were J. A. Donalson,'
A. L. Henkley and J. A. Richards; in precinct two
J. F Richards, A. J. Wood and J. C. Wood; in
precinct three, J. P M. McClellan, E. C. Kendrick:
and W. E Taylor; in precinct four, H. S. Stone, J.
S. Stone and S. Burns.
On April 5th the board reconvened to canvass
the election;. In Abe Springs nineteen votes were
cast, all for Blountstown. Hansford Mill likewise
gave the unanimous support of its sixty votes for
Blountstown. Something happened to prevent
elections from being held throughout the County,,
the Commissioners decided the election was not'
-legal and ordered the County Seat to remain at
Abe'Springs. '.. ..
But the Blountstown advocates were deter-
mined and would not take defeat. They carried
their case before Judge D. S. Walker of the Second
Judicial Circuit. On May 4th, '1880 Judge Walker
ruled that the election had been legal, that
Blountstown was now the lawful County Seat and
he gave the Commissioners two weeks to move the
seat of government to it's new location. Just think
what and how many records Were lost forever.,
.,On the. 17th of May, the board met for its first
time in .Blountstown. Chairman Rivers outlined
plans for. the building of a new courthouse and
they were accepted with a three to one vote,
Donalsop voting no. W R. Shields was to draw the
plans for the new building, for which, he was to


receive ten dollars.
June 1st was set for the day to receive bids for
the riew courthouse, but when the board met that
day there was no Clerk and no Sheriff present.
Finally James S. Fannin, a Deputy Sheriff,
appeared for Sheriff Bush, but no clerk came and
the meeting adjourned. Meeting the next day
with all present, the board leased the Solmanowitz
building on the fiver bluff, the site of McNeal, to
use as a temporary quarters.
Bids for the Courthouse were finally placed in
the Commissioners hands on June 8th., W. R.
Shields presented his bid for the two-story build-
ing for $1,341. H. S. Stone lowered this figure to
$1,240 and received the job.
During the preliminary moves, James S.
Fannin took office as Clerk relieving Mr. Clark,
and during August, the new structure was begun.
Events, moved slowly until June 1881, when
the Commissioners had to find new quarters while
waiting for the slowly constructed courthouse. Mr.
Fannin made them an offer to rent the entire sec-
ond story of his store building. His offer was
accepted on June 6th, 1881, just as a new board
took office.
The new board of County Commissioners was
composed of W J. McKeown, who was elected
Chairman. J. P M. McClellan, W. J. Montford, H.
L. Connell and J. M. Taylor. Other new officer's
were J., S. Stone, who became Sheriff; Sheriff
Bush, took over the post of Tax Assessor; and Jeff
Richards, became-the County ,Treasurer.
On April 3rd, 1882, two years after the elec-
tion, Chairman McKeown was empowered by the.
Commissioners to look over the new modern
Courthouse and accept the keys if everything was
up to standards.
It was on May 1st, 1882, that contractor Stone
announced the new public office building coin-
plete. A scattering of a crowd, large for the time,
mounted on oxcarts and horseback and rode to see
their new Courthouse. It was a great day, long
remembered by the proud citizens, of the County,
who felt that they had the last word in County
Courthouses. A river steamer from Columbus,
Georgia added'color to the occasion and Calhoun
County celebrated the birth of the "Kingdom of
Opportunity".
