WEATHER


RIVERS


Residents on


Chipola River


bracnmgfor


rising waters;,


Johnson Street


homes in town


could also be


in jeopardy


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
"It all depends on the
rain."
That was the word
from Emergency
Management Director
Sonny O'Bryan as he
patrolled the roads of
Calhoun County
Tuesday morning, hop-
ing for the best,' but
preparing for the worst.
After between five
and six inches of rain
over the weekend, the
Apalachicola River had
swollen to just under 22
feet at press time
'Tuesday. The Chipola
was at 20.6 feet and ris-
ing.
"The National
Weather Service has the
Apalachicola forecast, to
crest at 22.8 feet on
Wednesday," O'Bryan
reports, adding that he
isn't so sure about that
figure. "The problem
with that is Lake
Seminole is slam .full
right now and 'the inflow
'is running about 135,000


cubic feet per second
(CFS) with a discharge
'of about 115,000 CFS.
I've talked to the man
from the Corps who is
over it and they are try-
ing to keep the level at
24 feet or under, but I
don't know if they can
with all this rain. I'm
expecting it to exceed
24."
Should more rain
come in as predicted this
week and the
Apalachicola rise to over
24 feet, O'Bryan says
four or five homes on
Janet Street in
Blountstown can expect
flooding. "Every time it
goes another half foot,
another section of town is
in jeopardy," he
remarks. "But we'll be
fine at 24 except four or
,five structures."
As for the .Chipola
River residents, tnany
more will be impacted by
the rising waters.
"Marianna still hasn't
crested yet and it looks
like it will be around 24
feet there, says


HOSPITAL


Improvements continue at

Calhoun-Liberty Hospital
The progress at Calhoun-Liberty Hospital continues with
new equipment being added all the time. Above, Director of
Nursing Debbie Summers poses with the new medication dis-
pensfng unil. Summers says medication orders are entered
inlo a computer and exact dosage is dispensed from the
locked cabinet. For more on the hospital, turn to page 10.


RISING


O'Bryan. "That being
the case, the Chipola
River at Altha is forecast
to crest Thursday
around noon at 27.7 feet.
The problem with that is
with this much rainfall, it
has a direct effect on the
Chipola and the fact that
the Alalachicola is so
high, it causes a backup
effect at Dead Lakes. We
start getting water in'
structures on the Chipola
at about 25.5 and 26
feet."
O'Bryan reports that
two or three structures at
Lamb Eddy will likely be
impacted and residents
there can expect to be
cut off from their homes.
"On Blackbottom
Road, the residents prob-
ably won't get Water in
structures, but they will
get isolated where they
can't get ini, and out," he
says. "On Shuman Ferry,
two or three structures
will probably get water.
Most houses are elevat-
ed, but there will be
water under them where
they can't get to them."


A few structures at
the end of Bailey
Cemetery Road could
also experience high
water to the point resi-
dents can't reach their
houses, as well as those
on the end of Lee Bailey
Road, Cypress Park on
B.H. Stone Road, and at
Jack Lake.
"It all depends, on
how much rain we get,"
O'Bryan reiterates. "If
we get a. bunch of rain,.
we could' be looking at
levels like we saw in '94,
and '98."
The record high at the
Chipola River was 33.55.
in September of 1926.
The high for modern
times was 31.55 in 1998.
The Apalachicola's
record high was 28.6 feet
in 1929. It climbed :to
27.4 in 1994 and 1998.
Residents on the river
are urged to stay
informed land be pre-
pared. Rivers rise quick-
ly so. don't wait until the
last minute to leave: if
your property is threat-
ened.

Members of the Liberty County High School JROTC recently donated 70 pairs of eyeglass-

Liberty Co. JROTC donates


70 pairs of glasses to Lions


Liberty County High
School JROTC Battalion
collected and donated 70
pairs of used eyeglasses to
the Bristol Lions Club for
use both: domestic and
worldwide. The LCHS
JROTC Battalion did this
as a community service
based project to earn points
toward passing their,federal
inspection. This is the
fourth-year they have exe-
cuted this project. )
The unit currently holds
the highest rating possible
"Honor Unit With
Distinction." However,
they cannot rest on their
past accomplishments, they
must step up and earn it
again if they expect to wear
the "Gold Star."
Helen Keller challenged
LIONS to serve all people
and that is our motto. "We
Serve" in the area of sight
conservation. Recycling
used eyeglasses is just one
program among many that
LIONS undertake to meet
the challenge of sight con-
servation. Few of us or the
students will ever see the
smile of gratitude when a
recipient receives the gift, of
improved eyesight as a
-result of a pair- of these eye--
glasses. Lions International
make up ,Mission Teams
comprised of, seven


optometrists, 11 opticians
and seven technicians to fill
the need in a given area.
One-third of each team are
Lions Club members..
Lenscrafters personnel
compete to participate ion
one of these teams. They
are selected based on their
contribution of time and
leadership in ,the Gift. of
Sight Program.

In Loving Memory
Mary L Andrews
November 27, 1946 -
April 6, 2006

ff Tears Could
Build a Staliway
If tears could
build a stairway,
And memories a lane
I would walk right
up to Heaven
And bring you
.back again.
No farewell words
were spoken,
No time to say 'Goodbye',
You were gone
before I knew it,
And only God
Knows why.
My heart still
aches with sadness,
And secret tears still flow,
What it meant
#to love you-
No one can ever know.
But now I know
you want me
To mourn for
you no more;
To remember all
the happy times,
Life still has
much in store.
Since you'll
never be forgotten,
I pledge to you today-
A hollowed place
within my heart
Is where you'll
always stay.'
Love Always
Tiffany, Eric,
Terell, Edcka

I want to thank everyone for
the prayers, cards, phone calls
and inquiries during my knee

Thank you, Dr. Goodman, for

they were so bad. I'm back at

you again, everybody.

ALTHA, MARCH 23-
If it's executed properly it's
virtually impossible to
defend.
"It" is the suicide "
squeeze play and the
Wildcats (3-10) performed
it flawlessly, not once but
on "back-to-back" plays last
Monday night against the
South Montgomery County
Raiders (6-11) from Grady,
AL.
Trailing 10-9 in the bot-
toni of the seventh inning
last Monday night, Altha
had one out and. the bases
were loaded. As soon as
the Raiders' pitcher began
his motion toward home,
Altha's Caleb Morris broke
from third .base toward'
home and Corey' Johnson
laid down a perfectly
placed bunt toward the
right side. Morris scored
on the play and, Johnson
reached first safely. With
the bases still loaded, pinch
runner Jesse Hall and
Caleb Chew duplicated the
play to give the Wildcats a
11-10 victory.
Altha got on the score-
board first in the second
inning. Tyler Huff reached
on a throwing error by the
Raiders' shortstop. After
two wild pitches 'Huff found
himself on third. A throw-
ing error by South
Montgomery's catcher
allowed Huff to cross the
plate.
The Raiders made it a
1-1 ball game in the third
inning.
However, the Wildcats
plated 3 runs in their frame
of the third inning to go
back on top, 4-1. Lead-off
batter Jacob Warner ripped
a double to left center field.
He moved to third courtesy
of a wild, pitch. Jake
Edenfield lifted a sacrifice
fly to center field to score
Warner. Ethan Byler was
issued, a walk. He
advancedd to second on a
passed, ball and stole third
base. Caleb Chew doubled
to right center field to plate
Byler. Tyler Huff reached
on fielding error by the
shortstop and Chew scored
on the play.
In the fourth inning
South' Mohtgomery went
back on top, 6-4.
Altha pulled with a run
:in the home half of the
fourth, 6-5.. Jeremy
'O'Bryan slapped a single
into right center field to
begin the inning. D.J.
Griswold reached on a
throwing error by the third
baseman. Jacob Warner
laid down a sacrifice bunt to
move O'Bryan to third and
Griswold to second. An
infield single to the left side
by Jake Edenfield loaded
the bases. Ethan .Byler's
sacrifice fly to center field
allowed. O'Bryan to touch
the dish.


The Raiders' made it a
9-5 game in the top of the
fifth.
However, the Wildcats
got 2 of those runs back in
the bottom of the inning.
Caleb Chew drew a walk to
lead off the inning. A
passed ball allowed him to
make his way to second
base. Tyler Huffs single to
left. field brought Chew
cross the dish. .Anthony
Young reached on fielding
error by the first baseman.
It was 9-7
Altha's defense kept


South Montgomery off the
scoreboard in the fifth
inning. Relief pitcher Jake
Edenfield fanned two bat-
ters and he got a ground out
sandwiched in between to
set the Raiders down in
order.
Boosted by their defen-
sive play, the Wildcats
knotted the score in their
half of the frame, 9-9. With
one out Ethan Byler
reached after swinging at
the third strike and an

"Everything we hit was at
them or they would make a
big play. The back to back
games on Friday night and
the back to back games on
Saturday in the sun seemed
to take its toll. We'd had
several sick for two or three
weeks so our energy level
was down from the start. It
was still a good weekend
and I think the girls
enjoyed it."

Horoscopes
ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Aries, you gel waylaid by a bad cold and you just can't seem to
bounce back quickly. There's no qick-fix to this one. Rest, rest and
more rest is all you can do
TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
Don't put off your responsibilities any longer, Taurus. The longer you
wait, the more things will.add up on your plate. If you are feeling the
pressure, ask for help.
GEMINI May 22/Jun 21 .. '
Gemini, if you've been feeling like things are usti rot going your way
for some time, everything is aoout to change for tne Oetter Pisces will
'be the catalyst
CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
Cancer here's a remote chance that you il bump into an old friend
from school wnom you haven't seen in several years. Keep your eyes
ppen for the encounter.
LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
Unfortunately the stars are not shining.down on you this week, Leo.
But that doesn't mean you can't be the master of your own fortune.
Stay positive.
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept,22
Virgo, you're a pro at thinking you can handle everything on your own.
The trouble is, sometimes you just have to ask for help or risk getting
in over your head.

LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
There'sr more than meets the eye with you, Libra. You, exude a certain
personality that can throw others, but deep down you're a completely
different person.
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
Scorpio. having a few friends in your corner won't help against a big-
wig at work. Just calmly state your case and you will find it's better
received.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21
Be thorough and thoughtful before making a financial decision,
Sagittarius. In this economic climate it is not wise to go willy-nilly into
money ventures.
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
You can't avoid confrontation this week, Capricorn. How you handle
yourself the next few days will make others envious or look on you
with pity,
AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
Aquarius, you have trouble letting others make decisions, and then get
frustrated when you're calling. all of the shots. You can't have it both
ways, unfortunately.
PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20

just have to make it through one more rough patch on Tuesday.

A person born in
Calhoun County before
1920 can well remem-
ber the turpentine
operations in the piney
woods, but for most of
us, we have to find the
writings of others and
their records. The'
county became among
the highest in yields for
the turpentine busi-
ness. The greatest
financial income might
have been reached
immediately after
World War I.
Naval stores formed
an important role in,
the settling and devel-
oping of Southern
.Colonies. For many:l
years the North
Carolina Colony and
later the Tar Heel
State was the leading
one in the turpentine
business.
The British govern-
ment placed naval
stores on the first boun-
ty lists. Extra subsidies
were given to Colonists
for exporting products
from the southern pine
to the mother country.
The British navy
became the strongest in
the world before the
Revolutionary War and
continued in first place
until World War One.
Turpentine and resin
were necessary ingredi-
ents in the construction
and maintaining of the
naval vessels. 'As
North Carolinabecame
more settled, naval'
stores gave way to
tobacco, cotton, and
other types of farming.
Naval store operators
began moving toward
the South and West to
find an abundance of
the longleaf and slash
pine forests. South
Carolina, Georgia,
Florida and Alabama
became the leading
states in this type of
operation. From 1900
to 1920 more than thir-,
ty operators were iden-
tified in Calhoun
County. From the
Jackson County line to
the Gulf of Mexico.
only a few miles sepa-
rated the turpentine,
operations. Many
owners would bring his
entire group of workers
from South Carolina
and' Georgia. The
experiences gained in
the first operations usu-
ally guaranteed a suc-
cess in the new turpen-
tine still sites.
Turpentine was a
year-round-operation
".when the sap rises"
was the common
expression for the
spring operations. By
the first of March
scores of chippersrs and
pullers" had began
leaving the turpentine
camps before day-
break. 'lvo-team and
one-horse wagons and
buggies were on the
roads to the crops of
turpentine pines. The
"hands" were joined
before the end of the


chippers and pullers
were:'the most skillful,
but the.dipping process
was just as necessary.
.A squad, of younger
men and boys were the
"dipper-s". The gum
was dipped from the tin
or clay cups into the
dip .barrels. This con-
tainer was usually
small, enough for a
teenage boy to carry by
the handle from tree, to
tree. After the small
barrel was filled with
gum, it was carried and
emptied into a large
barrel, probably 50-
' gallons. The dipping
squad was usually.
supervised, by, older
.and experienced men.
Mack Betts from
Ocheese was one such
man, who could assist a
youngster in elevating
his barrel to empty the
contents into the large
gum barrel. When the
large container was full
the supervisor sealed it
with a heavy lid. The
large filled gum barrel
was then laid on its side,
both to check the seal
and to assist the hauler,
who would recognize
that the barrel was
filled and he rolled it up
the two log poles into a


I "A _mn" Lim


'IAL

wagon. This undertak-
ing required strength
and skills. If the hauler,
of the barrel lost con-
trol of the barrel when
it was' several feet off
the ground it would roll
down and over the'
hauler. Therefore,
either older or stronger
hands stood close by to
prevent an accident.
Of course if a youngster
had received help he
was taunted by the
other youngsters for his
weakness."
The dippers were
the lowest paid workers
in the turpentine'
process. But if they
were from a large fami-
ly the total income was
helpful.
