ANIMAL CRUELTY


HERO


Altha woman says

dogs being poisoned


Blountstown native risks

life to save woman, kids
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A Blountstown native -is being hailed as a hero in
Pensacola after saving a woman and her two children and
.getting struck by a car in the process.
Pat "Mitchell" Judd, 58, who graduated with the BHS
Class f '68 and is the son of Jackie and the late Bill Judd of
Blountstown, has taught physical education at an Escambia
County 'elementary school for over 15 years. He was assist-
ing as a crossing guard Friday when a mother was returning
from dropping off-her six-year-old at school. She had a two-
year-old and four-year-old with her as a.,car drove through
the stop sign and traveled into her path. Judd reportedly
pushed the woman and her children out of harm's way and
was hit by the car. The Pensacola News Journal reported
Judd rolled over the hood of the car and injured his leg.
A family friend tells The County Record Judd is sched-
ured for surgery on his ankle next Monday.

News Editor
An Altha woman is
asking for the public's
help to find out who is
poisorung dogs in her
neighborhood.
An animal lover,
Robbie Newsome, who
resides on Evans'
Street. adopted a
puppy that had been
dumped off at John
Redd Landing several
months back. "She
looked like a timber
wolf chow mix." says
Newsome. "She was a
beautiful dog."
Newsome points out
that the puppy she and
her husband named
"Shelly" was also an
easy going animal.
"She shared a bowl
with a cat. Everybody
around here loved her.
The kids in the neigh-
borhood and every-
body fed her."
A week ago
Tuesday. Shelly had
been roaming the
neighborhood when
she returned home and
was obviously sick.


After suffering for 45
minutes, a deputy
arrived at the
Newsomes' request
and put Shelly out of
her misery.
The Newsomes are
certain Shelly was poi-
soned and say she
wasn't the only dog it
happened to that day.
A neighbor's dog
named "Gabby" had
also been out roaming
and was spotted stum-
bling in a ditch before
she died.
"This has been
going on for several
years.," Robbie tells
The County Record,
recalling how two of
her dogs were poisoned
last year when she
lived on the other side
of town. Another stray
she had adopted went
outside to use the bath-
room and returned half
an hour later foaming
at the mouth. She was
put to death that day.
Her lab became ill a
short time later and
threw up some bread

kDear Editor,
On Tuesday, April 28th,
"The Wall That Heals" will
pass through Blountstown
enroute to Apalachicola,
'where it will be displayed
from Thursday until
'.Sunday., Hundreds of vef-
erans on motorcycles from
throughout the Southeast
will be.escorting the tractor-
trailer that hauls the half-
scale replica of the Vietnam
Memorial in Washington,
D.C.
Hopefully, the good peo-
ple of Calhoun County will
provide a proper welcome.
Sand a display of patriotism
when it comes down
Highway 71 from Interstate
10. The' procession is
Scheduled to get underway
at 10:00 AM, and will pass
by the schools in Altha and
Blountstown.
After 9.11.01, it was dif-
ficult to find, a home or a'
business in our area that
wasn't flying an American
Sflag, Now,- nearly. eight
Years later, they are few
and far between. Veterans
from Vietnam were never
really welcomed home. On
the 28th of April, citizens
from Marianna to
Apalachicola will have an
opportunity to show their
support for "The Wall That
# Heals" and for all 58,000 of
*-their fallen countrymen,
whose names are inscribed
, on the.Vietnam Memorial.
. In Port St. Joe, a large
Group of citizens, business-
people and veterans are
planning to line the high-
way --some in their deco-
rated golf carts, all waving
Old, Glory. All of Gulf
C County's students are being
given 'the opportunity to
:witness the entourage and
to connect with history.
:Marianna High School's
.Jazz Badnd is playing patri-
otic music and providing a
sendoff. -.Will Calhoun
t County answer the call?
We hope so.
SThank you for your sup-
Sport.
Respectfully,
',. Rodney Herring

6To the Editor:,i
SOver the, years the
debate about our hospital
has been a' continuous
Thing. I have always
:thought we should keep our
hospital. Each time I have
used the emergency room I
have received good care.
:However, on March 13, I
had to go to the emergency
room for a suspected
stroke. Thankfully, it was
hot, but I am still undergo-
Sing testing.
' The thing I want to
stress is the excellent care I
received during my visit.
Dr. Tim, the nurses and the
.EMTs that transported me
to TMH, thanks to all of
"you!

A .Good Samaritan
SComing from Bristol I
'had a\,flat tire. I was near

happened. A nice lady saw

help me. He told me that
his mother had called him

tan, Aaron Minyard came

to get, the spare tire
pumped up which was flat
also. He then brought me
back to my car and followed
me to McDougald's station
in Blountstown. Aaron
works at the auto parts
place in Blountstown.
In times like these it is
good to know that there are
still good samaritans like
Aaron Minyard. Thank

To the Editor:
Ifyou don't stand behind
our troops, please, feel free
to stand in front of them!
I have written this letter
on several occasions yet
have never completed it. I
started it in 1969 while in
Viet Nam after a long hard
patrol., I only wanted to
thank everyone'for taking a
poor stupid young Marine
into your care. I wanted to
'follow in your footsteps. I
'only wish that I had of said
thank you so many years
ago.,
It really was, the: small
things that helped me and
molded me into the person:
that I became. I learned
that a man may be many
things that are hard to be
explained. I learned that
compassion, conviction and
dedication were not taught
yet instilled in ones being.
You personally showed me
that the statue of the man
does not dictate the heart,
fight or soul they process.
The young pup that you
gave guidance and helped
with confidence blossomed
and carried on as he was
taught. Thanks again as it
is never to late. I am sorry
it took me so long to let you
know my heartfelt feelings.
I did keep my head down,;
my spirit up and never gave
up hope. I remember being
taught, "'It's riot who's right,
it's what's right! '
I hopewe carinremember
together.

To the Editor:
I am .the cousin of
iVerena Nix. My mother is
Velma. Jo Swaine (was
Parish) and I'll be'down in
Blountstown for the Parish
Reunion second weekend of
June. I am also a paranor-
mal investigator and cur-
rently loking for: potential
"haunted" properties in
Calhoun County to investi-
gate while I'm in town for
the reunion.
I haven't lived in
Blountstown since I was 15
so local .folklore is lost on
me. Are there any business-
es/homes/locations ,thought
to be "haunted"?
If there are any potential
locations, I may be able to
assemble a Florida-based
professional team to con-
duct the investigation. All
investigations are free of
charge. Businesses, in par-
ticular, benefit from public
interest around such inves-
tigations. .However, we can
be as discreet aq necessary,
particularly if there is a
homeowner with weird stuff
going on and they don't
want anyone to know they
had a "ghost" group there.

Trailer park owner says county road


work brought water to his property


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor

During the flood: of,
1998, as .soon as the river
reached 22 feet, Rex Floyd
wound, up with 'water
encroaching on the, mobile
homes' in his trailer park
along :Graves. .Creek off
Highway 69 North. After.
that flood, he ,set out to
keep them from getting
damaged, again by raising
the trailers a couple mote

feet.
Over a decade later,
when the river started ris-
ing last week, water began
.creeping into the park once
again,. but this time the
marker was only at 19 feet
when it started invading his
property.
Floyd attributes the ris-
ing water issues on his land


to recent road work, on the
adjacent M.G.: Holley
Road. He tells The County
Record he will be meeting
with county commissioners
as soon as possible (he was
attempting to make the
Tuesday meeting) to dis-
cuss the matter and see
'what they plan to do to rec-
tify the problem.


. According to Floyd, one
county official told him to
"get a lawyer" when he
complained about the prob-
lem. But he doesn't want to
sue anybody. He stresses,
"I just want the problem
fixed. I want it back the
way it was before this work
was done."
Stay tuned.

LCHS graduate Tim Scott




making music in Nashville


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor

Fifteen years after toss-
ing his tassels in the air at
Liberty County High
School graduation, Tim.
Scott is doing what he does
best: making music.
"God has pretty much
lit me a path that a blind
man could follow," Tim
remarks. "I did my first
radio spot when I was four'
and various talent shows
throughout school. Mom
did a good job of feeding
that creative hunger. I did-
n't really start forming a
plan for a life in the music
business until my .10th
grade year when I prom-
ised one of my best friends,
Kris Stanley, that I would
do my best to make it in the
business. That was at Kim
and Jamie Luten's
Christmas party at Lake
Talquin. He and I were the
ones that would go to the
river between mid-year
exams and jump in the
river at lunch time. We
actually went swimming at
sunset on the night of the
Christmas party. Kris
passed away about a month
later from a bike wreck, of
all things. I wrote my story
song with Billy Dean, "Why
Am I Here", based on Kris
and that promise."
After high school, Tim
embarked on a four year
tour with -the Navy as an

aviation electronics techni-
cian, then started easing
into the country music
scene.
"I started coming to
Nashville in '99," he
recalls. "I played at
Tootsie's my first trip in,
but really started connect-
ing with Nashville in '02. I
won a radio contest to go
out on the road with
Montgomery. Gentry. I
spent four days on a tour
bus with that crew. That is
a rough way to discover the
road!"
- The following year, Tim
moved to Clarksville, TN,
where he began recording
his own songs in his base-
ment. "I was driving to
Nashville about five nights
a week playing writer's
nights and networking," he
says. "I actually moved to
Nashville in. '05 when I
decided to give up the gov-
ernment job and ,enroll in
the School of Audio
Engineering (SAE)
Nashville. My first job in
the biz, after SAE, was
with Billy Dean, selling
merchandise on the road. I
then went to work with
Shooter Jennings doing the
same. I worked in the
Universal Music Publishing
Group (UMPG) tape room
after that. I really started.
building my production
company in '03, but I have
.been learning every since."
A decade, since landing


in Nashirille, after plenty of
long nights and hard work,
Tim's diligence is paying off
as he prepares to release
his single Leftover Drinkin'
later this month. But the
road leading to this mile-
stone was certainly filled
with some bumps'.
"I guess my first big
break for this single was
right after I left UMPG in
April .'07. I fell into the
'Oval Office' of Music
Row," Tim remarks. "My
production company,
Bandit Entertainment
(named for the dog he got
on his first trip to
Nashville), purchased an
office on the Row in the
third floor of this old office
building that had a studio
in the basement. We were
using the studio space to do
demo work for, songwriters
and artist development.
work on various artists. I
guess I didn't think the
business plan through very
well. Most songwriters in
Nashville are broke. I had
put my music on hold pret-
ty much and I had no idea
that the producer, Pat Holt,
who owned the studio and
had been in the business for
30 plus years, worked with
Johnny Cash on some of his
last Nashville projects and
Dr. Hook, among so many
others. The recording con-
sole had 40 channels, eight
of which were on the con-
sole that recorded Michael


Jackson's Thriller album.
Times got tough. Thank
God! I actually lost every-
thing I owned a few months
after we started leasing the
office, my partnerships in
Bandit Entertainment sep-
arated, but Pat offered to
let me live in the studio.
That was when I started
working on this single. He
let me help him on a lot of
projects in exchange for'
studio time and living quar-
ters, which has evolved into
partial ownership of the
studio."
Tim attributes the title
to his debut single to his co-
writer, Alison Williams. "I
met her in January '07 at
THE. Music Row neighbor-
hood bar, Losers," he says,.
adding, "Yes, that is, the
name."
A Navy wife songwriter
in town from Hawaii,
Alison told Tim a .story
about big margaritas. "She
cracked a joke about having,
leftover drinking to do," he'
recalls. "When she said it I
knew I wanted to write it,
so we met at BMI the next
day and got started on
some, ideas. Leftover
Drinkin' was born, but did-
n't really develop until
April. I gave up drinking
.back in March of'07. I was
doing a lot of writing at the
time, but this was the first
song I wrote after I quit

Tim Scott continued


drinking. For some reason,
this waltz just grabbed me
and wobld not let me go. I
started recording one piece
at a time for a year and a
half on NO budget. Friends
would come in and lay
down an instrument track
here and there for me until
I had accumulated about 50
different tracks. There was
a lot of great music -being
made, but there was also a
ig mess."'
Fortunately, Tim says he
has been blessed with some
great relationships. "One of
which was hit engineer'and
producer, Michael Hanson,
who came in on the project
n November of '08. In
between his sessions with
guys like Neal McCoy and
Keith Urban, he sorted
through the mess and made
Leftover Drinkin' a radio.,
worthy mix. Mastering
engineer, Benny Quinn, put
on the final touches and the
rest is history waiting to be
written."
Leftover Drinkin' will be
available on 13 online
record stores including
Tunes, Rapsody, and
Amazon sometime in mid
o late April. You can hear
he new single for free at
myspace.com/banditenter-
ainmentnashville which
Tim keeps updated.
"I have just started
booking concerts and a


radio tour to promote the
single," says Tim. This is
just the first in many goals
that I have set for the next
few years. I love what I am
doing and I am making
some great friends along
the way. I am fortunate
enough to be involved in a
lot of upcoming projects,
one of which is Nashville
Studio Network (NSN)
where folks will be able to
see live studio recording
and actually be an interac-
tive part in the making of
albums. There is a reality
segment that goes along
with the music. The beta is
set to begin on NSN in the
next few weeks. I will have
links on myspace for that. I
am looking forward to get-
ting back out there and see-
ing a lot of my friends that I
miss dearly!"
As for advice to anyone
dreaming of a career in the
music industry, "Be it
music or underwater basket
weaving, anything worth
having is worth sacrificing
for," Tim stresses. "The
only way you will do it is by
doing it. Faith is worthless if
you don't BELIEVE! You
can put your toe in the
water, but you can't really
swim if you don't just jump
in. I could go on all day and
you may either get it or not,
but the only way to live is to
actually live."

Teens enjoy "Twilight" night
Area teenage girls (shown at left) gathered at the W.T. Neal Civic Center one evening
over spring break for "Twilight" night featuring the famous movie by that name. The event
was sponsored by the Calhoun County Health Departments new PO.W. program which
stands for Power of Wisdom. The program encourages teens to make wise choices.
During the night filled with fun activities, one of the older teens shared her personal choice
to save sex for marriage. She told the other girls how she and her boyfriend of four yeqrs.
.had made this commitment and were sticking to it. If you'd like to get involved with P.O.W.
or even volunteer to lead a P.O.W. club for area teens, contact Peggy Howland at the
Health Department, 674-5645.


P.O.W. recently participated in SWAT's Kick Butt event held
during BMS Spririt Week. Winners are Kyle Darnell, Kayla
Campbell and (not pictured) Walker Strawn..They are pic-
tured with Vanessa O'Neal, program coordinator.


Hannah Davis was the Altha
Ipod winner following the
SWAT Kick Butt event.

Horoscopes
ARIES -Mar.21/Apr 20
Aries, there's not much to keep you busy this week, so you'll have to
figureout a few activities to keep you busy. Or maybe you want to
catch up on some quiet time.
TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
SYou could use a break, Taurus, but it's not possible this week. Work
responsibilities continue to pile up and it'll take all of your energy to
muddle through them.
GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Gemini,-put others first when planning a party. Factoring guests' likes
and dislikes will help ensure most people in attendance will enjoy
themselves.
CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
Cancer, your mate could get on your nerves this week, but only if you
take what he or she says to heart. Consider that this person is speak-
ing out of frustration.
LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
Speak up, Leo. If-you get your. voice heard, others will take you much
more seriously. Scorpio could be your biggest, opponent. If you can' get
past him or her, you're in the clear.
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
It's been a few months of rough sailing, Virgo. But things have finally
quieted down and you're in a groove. You will find that daily activities
become much easier now.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
A big move could be in your future,,Ubra. Others may be alprehen-
sive about your ability to assimilate, but deep down you know that you
will be just fine.

SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
Scorpio, you're not quite ready for the big changes that are in store for
you in the weeks to come. However, you will cope just like you always
do.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21
,Sagittarius, there will be plenty of time for having fun this weekend.
Until then, buckledown and get some work done. Friday is a promis-
ing love day.
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
A change of outlook and attitude can result in more things working in
your favor, Capricorn. Look to a diplomat like Aquarius for advice on
how to put your best foot forward.
AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
Don't run from change, Aquarius. Rather, embrace the things that
come your way and you'll be a stronger, well-rounded person for your
efforts.

PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
It's been more work than fun, and Pisces feels like a dull boy or girl.
Let loose this week and put enjoyment on the front burner.

The Message of the
Empty Tomb
Matt. 28:6

As it began to dawn
toward the first day of the
week, Mary Magdalene
and the other Mary came
to see the sepulcher where
Jesus was laid. Suddenly,
there was a great earth-
quake which shook the
place around about for the
angel of the Lord descend-
ed from. heaven and came
and rolled back the stone
from the door and sat upon
it. \
His countenance was
lille lightning and his
clothes white as snow. The
glare was so tremendous
that one could hardly look
upon him. The keepers
that were there' to make
sure no one entered the
tomb, for fear shook and
became as dead men. The
then angel said unto the,
women, fear not; for I know
that you seek Jesus which
was .crucified. He is. riot
here: For he is risen as he
said. Come, see the place
where the Lord lay.
There is the mystery of
he empty tomb. The
Women could not even
begin to understand what
was going on. They came,
to pay their last respects to
the body of Jesus and now
the keepers lay, as dead
men, the stone was rolled
away and Christ was gone.
We saw him die and
S know 'he was laid here,
what do you. mean he 'is
gone. The angel then, told
them to look for themselves
and see that he was gone.
S They were confused and
went away in fear and,
mixed feelings, could this
be?
: It is still beyond human
understanding today. Do
you. understand how: if. is
possible for one who is dead
to rise up and be gone from
his grave. Doctors, tell us
that in a very few minutes
it is impossible to bring.
back life, anid here Christ


had been dead three days
and you say he is not here.
It's a mystery but it hap-
pened.. Just because we
can't understand it doesn't
mean that it. never hap-
pened.. It shows the great-
ness of God, that he can do
' all things but to you and I
it's a mystery for who can
fathom it.
There is also the miracle
of the empty tomb. Did the
soldiers steal His body?
No, the angel of the Lord
,proclaimed He is risen.
Can we explain it, no for it
was a miracle, He lives, He
lives, Christ Jesus lives,
today. God resurrected His
son, for the tomb could not
hold the Son of God. It
amazes me that many will
believe some theory but not
proven fact that He arose.
He even proved that He
was risen, for He appeared
unto 'the disciples on a
mountain and they wor-
shiped Him. He appeared
to Mary Magdalene whom
'he fhad cast out seven dev-
ils.. He appeared unto two
of them as they walked into
the country. He appeared
unto them again and
Thomas put his finger in
Jesus side and sawv the nail
scared hands. Christ.
,appeared again as they
fished on the Sea of Galilee'
early one motoring and they
had breakfast with Him..
They also saw Him when
He ascended into heaven.
There is no doubt, Christ
arose, He arose from the
dead. This was the miracle
that climaxed a terrible,
but he became the victor.
Last there is the mean-
ihg :of the empty tomb.'7
* Romans 4:25 says, who was'
delivered for our offenses'
and was raised again for our
justification. Christ
became the supreme sacri- .
.fice for our sins. He died as
a malefactors because he
died for sin; but it was not
his own sin. He died to
make atonement for your
sin and mine. By the merit
,8f his death he paid our

debt in His resurrection He
took out our acquittal.
The Apostle puts a spe-
cial emphasis on Christ's
resurrection; it is Christ
that died, yea, rather that
his risen again 8:34. So it is
very evident that we are
not justified by the merit of
our own works, but by
dependence upon Jesus
Christ and his righteous-
ness. This is the meaning
of the empty tomb, that
Christ's sacrifice was
accepted to atone for your
sin and mine and that he
lives to interceded for us at
-the right hand of God.. If he
had just died what would
salvation have' meant
today? Nothing. But the
tomb is empty and He
lives. He is the eternal sac-
rifice for you and me.
In John' 20:16 it says
Jesus says to her, Mary.
She turned and said to
Him, Rabboni; which is to
say Master. Mary wanted
more than anything to see
the Master and the Master
was there. If we will be
content with nothing short
of finding Christ, He will be
there. Christ will manifest
himself to all who seek him.
Jesus came to Mary as He
will come to you and you
can know an abiding pres-
ence.
The empty tomb in spite
of all that Rome or the Jews
could do Jesus. could not'be
sealed in a tomb to be for-
gotten. For all the soldiers
in the world could not have'
kept him, there. The mes-
sage of -the empty tomb
came bursting out on that
Easter morning, He is not
here, he is risen, yes he is
risen providing an accept-
able sacrifice, an abiding'
presence and an '. an
,appointed judgement. this
is the message of the empty
tomb. .
