News Editor
Local trackers were
busy over the weekend
after being called to
search for suspects in
two separate cases.
Around 8:45 p.m.
Friday night, Ofc.
Scotty Norris of the
Blountstown Police
Department noticed
Gary M. Brown push-
ing a bicycle down
Fannin Avenue and
stopped to speak with
him. As they spoke,
Brown dropped his
bicycle and. ran
through the
Benchmark Apart-:
ments complex. Norris
soon learned Brown
was a drug offender on
state probation.
Major Rodney
Smith brought out a K-
9 and tracked Brown
who was found hiding
in the woods. He was
charged with resisting
arrest without violence
and violation of proba-'
tion.
The following night,
just before 8 p.m.,
BPD Ofc. Timothy
Partridge spotted a
vehicle without a visi-
ble tag light. As he
pulled behind the vehi-
cle, the driver report-
edly accelerated, then
turned into a driveway
off East Central
Avenue, accelerated,
then drove behind a
house on the property.
When Ofc.
Partridge made it to
the car, he found a
woman -exiting 'the
back and the two front
doors standing open.
The woman said her
boyfriend, Robert
William Kersey, and'


his half-brother,
William Grady Noel,
ran through the woods
because Kersey was on
a 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. drug
offender curfew and
Noel was driving with a
suspended license. She
said Noel told them he
was not going back to
jail.
BPD Maj. Smith,
CCSO Capt. Michael
Bryant and a team
from Calhoun
Correctional Insti-
tution all arrived with
K-9 trackers. When
the K-9 team
'appeared, Noel came"
walking from the
woods yelling that he
was going to give up.
He was taken into cus-
tody and charged with
fleeing and attempting
to elude a police officer,
felony driving with a
suspended license, and
resisting arrest without
violence.
The K-9 unit began
trailing Kersey who
remained in the woods.
He was discovered in
just a few minutes and
was taken into custody.
He told authorities he.
was on house arrest
and was scared.
Kersey was charged
with resisting arrest
without violence and
violation of probation.

Schools



bracing



for cuts
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor

Calhoun County Schools
are bracing for state budget
cuts and Superintendent
Tommy McClellan says
some positions will not be
renewed.
"I don't know how
many," McClellan remarks.
"I know that there are
going to be some. We told
the principals some time
back that we're preparing
for -a 10 'Percent cut and
that's $1.6 million. That
has to come from salaries."
As far as the number of
employees that will mean,
McClellan says, "We may
have to cut somewhere
between 15' and 20 teach-
ers. But we're being hesi-
tant with that. We just had
to tell all our annual con-
tract people and there are
over 50 people on contract -
that we are not automati-
cally renewing any of them.
I've had some unhappy
people."
However, there may be
a silver lining to this dark
cloud if stimulus funds
come through for the school
. district. "Title I is supposed
to get $343,000 and IDEA,
which is your handicapped
is supposed to get
$488,000. Those have to
be spent on those pro-
grams. If we get a stimulus
package for salaries, it's
supposed to save jobs. You
can not use it to hire new
people and you can't use it
for raises. It will help some,
but how much we get I
don't know."
McClellan points out
that certain programs sim-
ply can't be ,cut, such as
math, English, science and
social studies. "We've
asked the principals to look
at positions they thought
they could do 'without,"
says McClellan.
He notes that state fund-
ing losses are impacting
school districts all across
the state. "Gulf County cut
42 last year, Marion
County cut over 500.
Everybody is having to do.
this and it's not something
anybody,wants to do."
State officials haven't
given a firm figure on. how
much each district will have
to cut and their final deci-
sion won't be known until.
the legislative session ends
in May.

Dear Editor:
We are trying to gather
some old Altha photos to
display some of the commu-
nity's history in our diner.
We are having a hard time
locating any photos. If any
of your readers have a
photo to share, please have
them stop by the Altha
Diner.
Thank you,
Jeff & Dixie Clark

Dear Editor:
Please let your readers
know of the abuse both
physical and sexual that the
State Of Florida has
ignored for almost a hun-
dred years. Terrible abuses
against children as young as
9 years of age.
As I write this mail,
there is an active investiga-
tion ongoing by USDJ,
FDLE and DJJ which has
attracted nation attention.
CNN, ABC and some local
media have already seen
some of the stories of hor-
ror. There is a 10,000 word
story appearing in the St.
Petersburg Times due out
April 19th. We ask you to
,let all of Florida know what
is possible and what could
"one day happen to their
own child should they one
day be sent to an institution
in this state; one of the
worse being The Author G.
Dozier School in Marianna.
Serious crimes are
allowed to occur when the,
state does not police their
own,
As a survivor, after 50
".years I still have scars on
my body from a flogging by
three employees of 'the
Dozier School. I was only
:15 years old, shaking, cold
- and scared; I was taken out
-of bed in the middle of the
:night and taken to a build-
ming called THE WHITE-
HOUSE. When I was
'returned to my cottage I
fhad a broken foot, lost 4
Front teeth and had
received 135 lashes with a
leather strap with metal
insert sewn between layers.
My underwear had been
embedded into my rear and
legs. I was beaten because


they said I knew about a
boy that had runaway, but I
knew of nothing about such
things.
My story is only one of
many on our website, which
I'm sending to you. Please
be advised that some sto-
ries here are graphic includ-
ing sexual brutal accounts
and even murder. (BE
SURE TO READ THE
ARTICLE WROTE BY
THE ORLANDO SEN-
TINEL APRIL 7TH).
For almost twenty years,
Roger Dean Kiser along
with Dick Colon and
Bryant Middleton has
worked to stop these awful
and horrible acts against
Florida's children. :Many of
we men are getting up in
age and some have already
passed, carrying with them
some horrible memories.
Many have suffered a life-
time of problems due to the
acts committed by many,
former employees ,of FSB'
Marianna. Memories of,
abuses. to young children'
which have lasted a lifetime
and we will take to .our
graves.
WE WERE CHIL-
DREN! Young boys who
were beaten, raped and
some murdered then cast
out into the woods as if we
were nothing more than
unless trash. Some did not
survive that horrible place.
Society might' ook at
this in a different light had
we been criminals. Most of
us were at that facility and
our only crime was running
away from home .
There were children
sent to the school because
their parents no longer
wanted them; many were
orphans ahd wards of the
state.
One might say "Why 50
years later do we, come' to
you?" Well, no one would
believe that such. atrocities
could possible occur in the
United States of America.
National media attention
has finally done that, for us
and brought survivors
together once again. This

Lake Lanier is an Army

facility for much of central'
and north Georgia. The
lake has been rapidly
depleting its supply of
water over the past couple
of years because of the

The water quality and
activities surrounding have
affected the river and bay
communities, causing eco-

losses. The FFA presenta-

AHALTHA S









The County Record, APRIL 15, 2009, Page 9


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.


*Long before the
name Calhoun County,
the United- States or
even Florida was
thought about, there
,were ..people living in
this area. This would
have been about the
time Christ was born in
the "old world".
The climate was
mild and there were all
kinds of animals to be
found for food and
clothing. Hickory nuts,
chestnuts, acorns, wild
grapes,. berries,- and
plums were ,growing in
abundance. The
streams, lakes, and
rivers were also well
stocked with fish.
If you take a walk
along, or. go on a boat
trip on, the Chipola
Ricer or Apalachicola
River .and look closely,
you can ,still see the
remains of their exis-
tence. There is clay in
the banks of the rivers
and moss in the trees
that they used to make


OUR INDIAN

HERITAGE

pottery. Tall pine trees
with straw that was
used to make baskets
still line the rivers:.
The palmetto bushes
were used to make the
roofs on their homes,
make fans, and the
roots were dug to cook
as a food. "Swamp"
cabbage is what it was
called in the 1940's.
If you are lucky you
will find broken pieces
of pottery. Sometimes
it will have a design on
it. Tlhey used ,things
like pine straw to wrap
around the clay pot or
used a corn cob to
make patterns' on it
before they fired it.
The freshly made clay
pots were placed in a


hole dug in the ground
and wood was piled on
top and burned until
the fire was finished
and' the pots were cool
to the touch.
When you walk
open areas like a
farmer's field that has
been plowed and pay
close attention to what
you find you will see
that the remains of a
village will be there.
You will find areas with
projectile points (arrow
heads) and round clay
marbles' where games
were played, places
with lots of flint shav-
ings where they made
their arrowheads using
deer bones, and where
they cooked there will


be lots of broken pot-
tery shards. This is
usually surrounded by
stands of wild plum
trees, grape vines,
huckle berries, black-
berries, and "may-
pops". The flowers of
maypops look like the
passion flowers.
The people lived on
the rivers in the sum-
mer and "up the hill" in
the winter. There is
evidence of small towns
along the, rivers.
Canoes were made
from tree trunks and
used for transportation,
too.
When you think
about where the people
went you realize that
they didn't really go
anywhere because they
were here when the
explorers came and
they married and had
families and became a
part of the community.
They are our ances-
tors!

the Liberty a three-run lead.
The Horsemen would get
that run back in the eighth
inning. With two outs Josh
McIntosh lifted a single into
right centerfield off of reliever
Tim Davis. McIntosh moved to
second base on a wild pitch and
scored on Nick Edenfield's sin-
gle down the right field line to tie
the game, 10-10.
After walking the Liberty's
first two batter, Jared Taylor and
Parish, Calhoun's Norris was
relieved by pitcher Gary Reed.


Taylor would score and Parish
found himself on third courtesy
of three consecutive wild pitch-
es. Tranquille drew a walk and
Smith loaded the bases after
being hit by a pitch. Fleck was
issued a walk that plated Parish.
O'Neal slapped a ground-ball
single through the left side of the
infield that scored Tranquille
and Smith. Travis Anderson
walked to load the bases again
Joiner reached on a fielder's
choice and an errant throw by
shortstop Barber trying to force
out Travis Anderson at second
base allowed Fleck and O'Neal
to touch the dish. With
Anderson at third base and
Joiner at second base, Jared
Taylor walked to loaded the
bases. Tim Davis hammered a
grand-slam homerun over the
right centerfield fence to give the
Dawgs a 20-10 lead.
The Horsemen's Eady led off
the bottom of the ninth inning by
reaching on a throwing error by
third baseman, Anderson, and
he advanced to second on the


catcher's indifference. A turf-
torcher by Bailey went through
the wickets of Smith and that
allowed Eady to score the final
run.
Leading the Dawgs at the
plate was Fleck who was 3 for 4
(including 2 home runs), he
scored 4 runs and was credited
with 5 RBIs. Davis posted 4
RBIs with his grand slam home-
run and he scored twice. O'Neal
was 3 for 6 (including a double),
he scored and picked up 4 RBIs.
The Horsemen's Faurot
* homered in his official at bat and
he scored twice. Kirkpatrick
was.2 for 3, scored once and had
2 RBIs on the day. McIntosh
was 2 for 4 (including a double)
and scored two runs.
Sunday the Horsemen will
host the Gulf County Drive at 2
pm (CT) and the Jackson
County Jays are at 'the Liberty
Diamond Dawgs. The first pitch
of that game is scheduled 2 pm

John 15:18-21
Do you realize ihal you
are never alone?
Monday can be an espe-
cially lonely time for God's
people. It follows the busy
regulated routine of each
Sunday. For most
Christians, Sundays are any-
thing but a day of rest. 'The
responsibilities of participa-
tion in the' church regularly
leave people open to the
qnemy's persislentl tempta-
tion o feel lhat we ore.the
only ,faithful ones while the.
many do very little. Itfs a
good time to remember the
words of Jesus wno com-
missioned us to 'go and
serve. He said, "I am with
you always" Matt. 28:20.
