Blountstown Coiman accused of



attempting to poison neighbor's dog


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A Blountstown. City.
Councilman has been
charged with attempted
cruelty to animals after
allegedly trying to entice
his neighbor's dog to eat
sausage filled with rat poi-
son.
* David Blair, who was
sworn into office back in
January as Council mem-
ber for ward 3, received a
notice to appear in court
from the State Attorney's
Office.
The dog's owner, Verna
Patterson, tells The
County Record she was at
work the morning of
March 5 when her son,
.Justin,. 21, called her and
said Blair had tried to poi-
son their dog.
Patterson's house is
located behind Blair's


home on Hwy. 71 North.
According to. Patterson,
her son was in their com-
puter room when he heard
their rottweiler barking.
,"IHe said he saw DaVid
Blair stomping at the fence
trying to get the dog's
attention," Verna reports,
adding that her son
watched from the window
and spotted Blair throw a
reddish item over the
fence. It was later revealed
to be a piece of sausage.
"Justin ran and 'got the'
meat before the dog could"
get to it," says Verna. "He
asked David what Ile was
doing and he said he was
trying to get the dog to be
quiet." Verna states that,
according to Justin, the dog
wasn't barking before Blair
came up.
After picking up ,the
sausage, Justin told his,
mom the top of the meat

fell off. "That's when he
saw five pieces of rat poi-
son," says Verna. "He
knew immediately what it
was because we have some'
in our shed. Justin called
me right then on his cell,
phone terribly upset."
Verna called the
Blountstown Police


Department, then left
work to meet the officer at
her house. After speaking
with Officer. Jody
Hoagland, Major Rodney
Smith arrived and listened
to the story.
"Rodney said he just
saw David Blair at the
[Altha Farmers] Coop,"
Verna recalls.
In the police report,
'Maj.. Smith noted that he
interviewed Blair who
allegedly stated he did not
throw anything over the
fence, He went on to say,
the dog rushes toward him
and his grandchildren any-
time they are near the
fence.

FIRE INVESTIGATION

Fallen limb


could be

cause of


house lire
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A mysterious house fire
discovered two weeks ago
on Jerry Guilford Road off
Hwy. 71.South may have
been the result of a fallen
limb.
As reported in last
week's issue of The County
Record, a neighbor noticed
the home had burned down
Mar. 4, but when firefight-
ers arrived they found the
ashes were cold. There was
no indication where or how
the fire started. The home-
owner, James Alford, who
resides in Clearwater, was
trying to sell the home and
had no idea it had burned.
According to a
spokesperson from the State
Fire Marshal's Office, "A
short time before [the. fire
was discovered], a limb had
fallen on a weather head at
the meter box. We're think-
ing wires .were loose.
Whenever the air condition-
ing kicked on there would
be a humming. But nothing
indicates it's suspicious."

Letter to the Editor:
My name is David
House, I am an' attorney in
Blountstown and have been
for the past 30 years. For
21 years of these years I
was a Part-Time Assistant
State Attorney and now I
am a Part-Time Public
Defender. I say this to let
you know that I have more
than just passing knowledge
about the criminal justice
system.
The Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office has a pro-
gram utilizing inmates,
wherein certain inmates are
granted trustee status and
placed on a work squad.
This squad is under the
control ,of Jo.,NJod. Joe
loads a vehicle up in the
morning with his crew and
goes out and performs pub-
lic service work in Calhoun
County. Some examples of
this public service would be
work on Sam Atkins Park,
The Pioneer Settlement,
cleaning up trash,' mowing,
raking, general mainte-
nance, etc.. Most recently
Joe and his work squad
have been very instrumen-
tal in the construction of the
new jail annex.
Last Sunday morning, I.
happened to be walking
and a Calhoun County
Sheriff's Department van
pulled up beside me and it
was Joe Wood. In it Joe'
had a van full, of his
trustees.
I asked Joe, "What are
you doing?"
He said "I am going to
church with the fellows."'
As 'I continued on my
walk, the longer and further
I walked, the prouder I
became of 'Joe Wood.
Monday morning I came


back and called Roman
Wood and asked him a
series of questions and they
were: Does Joe Wood take
his trustees to church on a
regular basis? The answer
was YES. Is this part of his
job description? The
answer was ABSOLUTE-
LY NOT. Does he get paid
for this? The answer was
ABSOLUTELY NOT.
Often times in life we
don't get enough credit or
any credit for the good
things we do. Joe Wood
deserves a lot of credit for
doing this. I for one say,
"THANK YOU, JOE
WOOD." The next time
you see Joe,. you need to
pat him on the back and let
him know what a good job
he is doing.

David House

To the Editor:
Thank you!. Thank you!
Thank you!
On Sunday afternoon,
March 8, I was walking on
the sidewalk in front of my
house when I fell. Three
young women came by,
stopped, helped me up, and
'helped me get to my house.
I'm sorry I didn't get their
names. I want them to
know how much I'appreci-
ate their assistance.

Tell your family story


in the heritage book


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.


William Sampson Johnson was born
February 20, 1842, Decatur County,
Georgia. He married Susan Samantha
Donaldson,. August 9, 1866,
Thomasville, Thomas County, Georgia.
She was one of eleven children of John
E. Donaldson and Mary Bankson.
Susan was born August 10, 1845 in
Georgia. W. S. Johnson was the only
son of Bill Johnson and Martha Welch.
After his father died, Martha remarried,
to John shepherd Haven of Effingham
County, Georgia. The Havens had
seven children who W. S. grew up with.
W. S. served with' his half-brother
Henry Haven in the 59th Georgia
Infantry. His half-brother Thomas
Haven was a neighbor in Calhoun
County. The Havens are buried at
Malcedonia cemetery in Madison
County, Florida.
In 1862, W. S. Johnson served in the
59th Georgia Infantry as a Private in
Company A. He was wounded and cap- '
tured at Gettysburg July 1863 and
paroled March 1864. His Florida ,
Pension file written by his half-brother
Greenberry Haven, stated he served as
a guard for President Jefferson Davis.
After the war, William returned to
Thomasville. Wounds inflicted during
the war plagued him for over forty
years.
In late 1880, William Sampson and
Susan moved from 'their farm near
Cairo, present day Grady County,
Georgia to Lee, Madison County, Florida. They
lived on a farm at Live Oak near Sari Pedro Bay.
William was Primitive Baptist lay preacher and.
served at Corinth in Madison County. About
three years later, he bought on hundred sixty acres
where they built a board house from timber on the
land. To supplement the farm income, he and his
sons supplied wood for fuel for locomotives.

Students warned of risks


from temporary tattoos


The Florida
Department of Health
(DOH) warns students of
potential health risks from
having a temporary "black
henna" tattoo applied to
,their skin. This issue is
especially important as
more than 250,000 stu-.
dents are expected to hit
Florida beaches for 2009
"Spring Break" which
extends from mid February
to mid April. Last year,
DOH received 17 reports of
severe allergic reactions to.
temporary black henna tat-
toos applied in one of
Florida's beach communi-
ties.
"Black henna" tattoos
have become popular in
recent years, because they
look more like a "real" tat-
too, In reality, there is no
such thing as "black
henna". 'True henna paste
is green or greenish brown
and must remain on the
skin eight hours or
overnight to leave a brown
or reddish-brown design.
The paste for a "black
henna" tattoo is black or
brownish-black and can be
removed in one hour or less
to leave a black design.
, The danger of "'black
henna" tattoos is that the
black color may be a result
of the addition of black hair
dye, which may contain a
toxic chemical called para-
phenylenediamine (PPD).
PPD can cause severe
allergic reactions in some
individuals. The general
progression of symptoms is.
itching or burning, blister-
ing, oozing, scab formation,
and sometimes permanent
scarring in the shape of the

tattoo .design. Symptoms
may occur within a few
hours or up to a few weeks,
depending upon the con-
centration 6f' 5PD in the
paste and how allergic a
person is.
Medical attention
should be sought immedi-
ately upon any symptoms
of an allergic reaction. In
addition to medical atten-
tion, allergic reactions
should be reported elec-
tronically to DOH on the

PAEC recognizes'BHS senior with regional award


Colton Bush honored



as outstanding student


A local high.school stu-
dent has been honored as
the PAEG Regional
'ITansition Council's
Outstanding Student in
Transition.
Rusty Holmes,.
Chairman of the Regional
Transition Council, recently
recognized Colton Bush, a
senior at Blountstowri High
School (BHS), and his
employers, Calhoun
County Schools and
Blountstown Health and
Rehab Center, as successful
partners in transition.
Colton was recommend-
ed for the award by Alvin
Webb, Calhoun School
District's employment spe-
cialist. Mr. Webb cited
Colton's uncommon focus
and determination in get-
ting the job done right in his
recommendation for the
award.
In addition to attending'
school, Colton holds -down
two jobs. After his morning
studies. at BHS are com-


Pictured (from left) are BES Principal Pam Bozeman,
Employment Specialist Alvin Webb, honored student Colton
Bush, BES Food Service Faye Brown, and FDLRS/PAEC
Transition Specialist Rusty Holmes.


plete, Colton goes to
-Blountstown Elementary
School (BES) where he
works as a food service
assistant. At BES he is
known for his extensive job
knowledge and his positive
"get the job done" attitude.
As soon as his duties at
BES are completed, Colton"
goes to Blountstown Health


and Rehab Center where
he works with their food
service program. His co-
workers report that "every-
body loves him."
Colton is excited about
finishing his high school
career this year and is very
busy saving the money that
he earns to buy a vehicle of
his own.


Kick Butts Day is a
national day of activism
that empowers youth to
stand out... speak up... and
seize 'control against big
tobacco. On March 25,
events around the state will
mobilize students to raise
awareness about the prob-
lems of tobacco use in their
school or community.
Locally, our middle
school SWAT teams have
been working hard to put
together a day filled with
fun and education about
tobacco and its harmful
effects. Altha School's Kick
Butts Event will be held on
March 25th. Blountstown
Middle School will have
theirs on March 26th. Carr
School will have their Kick
Butts Event on March
27th.
Tobacco Free Florida -
the state's anti-tobacco
campaign is aggressively


targeting the approximate-
ly 1.5 million youth ages 11
to 17 with the campaign's
cigarette and smokeless
tobacco prevention m6s-
sage. To counter the adver-
tising efforts of tobacco
.companies that spend more
money on advertising in
Florida than in any other
state, Tobacco Free Florida
has launched a statewide
youth prevention advertis-
ing campaign with televi-
sion, radio, cinema and
print ads across the state,
encouraging youth to "Be
Free" from tobacco. The
new "Be Free" campaign
message encourages youth
to build self-confidence and
identity without tobacco
use and is part of the state's
effort to reduce the number
of youth who begin using
tobacco products and ulti-
mately become addicted.
The first television com-


mercial to be released tar-
gets the tobacco industry's
use of kid-friendly flavors in
fheir products. In a typical,
Florida suburban neighbor-
hood, the familiar chime of
an ice cream truck attracts
children within ear's reach.
Gathering around the
truck, they notice that car-
toon characters such as a
chocolate bar smoking a
cigar and a lemon lighting a
cigarette have replaced the
familiar treats. A leathery-
skinned tobacco executive
leans out of the window
asking for orders. As the
kids exchange blank stares,
one youth shakes his head
. as, a voiceover asks, "Who
do you think they're trying
to attract?"

Science Field Trip
Mrs.. Edminson, two of

anatomy class recently
went to the Mary Brogan
Museum of Art and
Science.
On Saturday, March 14,
they visited the Universe

saw- actual human bodies.

preserved. This exhibit
allowed the students insight
to the inside; giving them a
true look at the inner work-,
ing of the extraordinary
human body. Mrs.. Rachel
Edminson believed that
this was definitely a unique
experience that the stu-
dents will remember for the
rest of their lives and hope-
fully they learned a little
too!

Colton Bush Presented
With Outstanding
Transition Award
by Meagan Benton
'Occasionally throughout
life.we all encounter people
that can only be described
with one word...outstand-,
ing!
On Wednesday March
11, PAEC found they could
describe Colton Bush, a
senior at Blountstown High
School, as nothing less.
Colton was presented with
an "Outstanding Transition
Student Award" for his
spectacular work ethic.
Colton works at
Blountstown Elementary
School for two hours a day
and Blountstown Health
and Rehab four hours a day
in food service. Those of us
who have grown up with
Colton know what a kind
heart and beautiful spirit he
has. We have always
known that when you look
at Colton you think, out-
standing. We have enjoyed
seeing someone else recog-
nize Colton the way we


have always seen him.
This is the first award of its
kind presented to a student
by PAEC, and we are all
ecstatic that Colton.was the
recipient./ Congratulations
to Colton, thank you for
representing our school and
community well and for
your diligence and good
work ethic.

World's smallest
gospel singer to visit

International T.V. and
recording, artist, Lowell
MVIason will be appearing at
Southside Assembly of God
Church on Sunday, March
22, at 11:00 a.m. The
church is located at 15164
SR 71 South. ,
Lowell Mason has been
called the.World's Smallest
Gospel Singer because of
his unique height of only 46
inches. His melliferous
voice, however has no com-
parison to his size. When
he sings, his booming voice
brings a thrill to everyone
who listens'.
During his program, you
will hear a.variety of "Old,
Time" songs. The mood
can change from a deep
moving hymn like "Peace
in the Valley" or "The Old
Rugged Cross" to a rousing,
hand clapping gospel
favorite like "Daddy Sang
Bass" or "Put Your Hand
In The Hand Of The Man
From Galilee".
The experience of many
years of performing to audi-
ences around the world
accredits this very talented
gentleman with being truly
a professional in his chosen
field.
