BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
A shocking discovery at
a Calhoun County home
ended in the arrest of a
local woman' and the res-
cue of 85 dogs, four horses,
and 16 goats.
Beth Hall. 59, has been
charged with 105 counts of
animal cruelty.
According to the
Calhoun County Sheriff's
Office, a tip from a vet led
authorities to the Hall
home on SR 20 West after
the doctor treated Hall's
horse and suspected it was
living in unfit conditions.

along with Bay County

several in small pens and
above ground enclosures
encrusted with animal
feces. Much of the water
available was described as
dirty with algae and
debris. The animals were
infested with fleas.
Inside the home, inves-
tigators found 51 of the
dogs. Feces and urine were
everywhere, including the
bed where Hall reportedly


slept. Bowls of spoiled and
moldy food were secured
to the legs of chairs and
other objects by pieces of
twisted wire. The Bay
County Fire Department
Hazmat team determined
the odors created a level of
ammonia so high it was
hazardous to both humans
and animals.
Four horses three of
which were extremely thin
with ribs showing promi-
nently were also res-
cued.The fourth horse had
an untreated infected
lesion on his face and was
in need of preventive hoof
treatment. There was
reportedly insufficient food
and no good forage avail-

Letter to the Editor,
On April 3rd, I suffered
respiratory failure while at
home. My son called 911
,and within 'minutes an
ambulance arrived and
took me to Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital.
Thanks to the' expert
care of the ambulance and
hospital personnel they
were able to get me on life'
support, and transferred
me, to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital. It was
evident that they were gen-
uinely concerned with my
welfare.
I warntto bffer my heart-
felt thanks to these people
and to all who began pray-.
ing for me. I: thank God for
my ongoing recovery and-
thank him every day that
he put these very special
people in the right place at
the right'time. G
Johnnie Graham

To the Editor:
545 PEOPLE
Politicians, are the only
people in the world who
create problems 'and then
campaign against them.
Have you ever won-
dered if both the
Democrats and the
Republicans are against
deficits, WHY do we have
deficits? Have you ever
wondered if all the politi-
cians are against inflation
and high taxes', WHY do we
have inflation and high
taxes?
You and I don't propose
a federal budget; the presi-
dent does.
You and I don't have the
Constitutional authority to
vote on appropriations; the
House of. Representatives
dd.
You and I don't write the
tax code: Congress does
You and I don't set fiscal
policy; Congress does.
You and I don't control
, ..monetary policy: the
Federal Reserve Bank
does.


Une hundred senators.


this common con regardless
of party.
What separates a politi-
cian from a normal human
being is an excessive
amount of gall. No normal
human being would have
the gall of a Speaker, who
stood up and criticized the
President for creating
deficits. The president can
only propose a: budget. He
cannot force the Congress
to accept it.
"The Constitution. which
is the supreme law of the
land, gives sole responsibili-
ty to the House of
Representatives for origi-
nating gnd approving
'appropriations and taxes.
Who is the speaker of the
House? ,Nancy Pelosi. She
is the leader of the majority
party. She and fellow
House members, not the
president, can approve any
budget they want. If the
president vetoes it. they
can pass qi over his veto if
they agree to.
It seems inconceivable
to me that a nation pf 300
million cannot replace 545
people who stand convict-
ed-by present facts-of
incompetence and irrespon-
sibility. I can't think of a
single domestic problem
that is not traceable direct-
ly to those 545 people.
When you fully grasp the
plain truth that 545 people
exercise the power of the
federal government, then it
must follow that what exists
is what they want to exist.
If the tax code is unfair.
it's because they want it
unfair.
If the budget is in the
red. it's because thby want
it in the red.
If the Army & Marines
are in IRAQ, it's because
they want them in IRAQ.
If they do not receive
social security but are on an
elite retirement plan, not
available to the people, it's
because they want it that
way.a
There are no insoluble

ident, and nine Supreme Dbo not let tese 545


Court justices-545 human
beings out of the 300 mil-
lion-are directly, legally,
morally, and individually
responsible for the domestic
problems that plague this
country.
I excluded the members
of the Federal Reserve
Board because the
Congress created that prob-
lem. In 1913, Congress
delegated its Constitutional
" duty to provide a sound
currency to a federally
chartered, but private, cen-
tral bank.
I excluded all the special
interests and lobbyists for a
sound reason. They have
no legal authority. They
have no ability to coerce a
senator, a congressman, or
a president to do one cot-
ton-picking thing. I don't
care if they otTer a politician
$1- million dollars in cash.
The politician has the'
power to accept or reject it.
No matter what the lobby-
ist promises, it is the legisla-
tor's responsibility to deter-
mine how he/she votes.
Those 545 human
beings spend much of their
energy convincing you that
what they did is not their
fault. They cooperate, in


people shift the blame to
bureaucrats, whom they
hire and whose jobs they
can abolish.
Do not let these 545
people shift the blame to
lobbyists, whose gifts and
advice they can reject.
Do not-let these 545
people shift the blame to
regulators, to whom they
give the power to regulate
and from whom they can
take this power.
Above all. do not let
them con you into the belief
that there exists disembod-
ied mystical forces like "the
economy," "inflation." or
"politics" that prevent them
from doing what they take
an oath to do.
Those 545 people, and
they alone, are responsible.
They, and they alone, have
the power. The people
should hold them alone.
545, accountable. We are
their bospes. We- should
vote all of them out of office
and clean up their mess!

I did not write this I am
only sharing this.

Atticus Stephens, son, of
Lane and Joetta Stephens
of Quincy, recently had the
honor of serving, as a
Legislative' Page in the
Florida House of
Representatives.
Students from across
Florida are selected to have
this unique opportunity to
see their state government
in action. This is their civics
class coming to- life. While
performing their duties
they will watch members,
constituents, and lobbyists
work together to pass. or
defeat bills going -through
the legislative process:
Pages (students 12 to 14
years old) serve, in the
Chamber, with the mem-
bers, as legislation is debat-
ed and voted on. .
While Atticus has been
patiently waiting to turn 12
so that he could qualify to
be a Page, this was not his
first time at the Capitol. In
fact, he has attended every
Regular Session at the
State Capitol with his Dad,
since he was 2 years old.
Atticus was sponsored
by Rep. Baxter Troutman
(R-Winter Haven), who is a
close friend of Atticus and
his family. Joining Atticus
and Rep. Troutman for a
picture on the Floor of the
House is local State Rep.

home medals from state BY COACH GREG JORDAN High School. freshman Jawon Mosle


-BY COACH ROBBIE SMITH

The Altha Wildcats
added two more medals to
the school's total over the
weekend at the 2009 Boys
Weightliftifig State Finals.
The Wildcats sent-three
lifters to the state finals this
past weekend. Terry
Stinson and Lucas Basford
both medaled at the meet.
Ethan Ellis competed in
the 129 pound weight class.
Ethan 'went 4 out of .6 fin-,
, fishing with a 170 pound
bench press and a 185
pound clean and jerk.
Ethan made great gains'
this :year and still' has
another year of training to
improve and hopefully
compete for a medal next
year.
Junior Lucas Basford
:. made it to state as a wild-


upset by bringing home a
6th place medal. Lucas
went 5 for 6 in the meet
with his only miss coming
on his third clean and jerk.
Basford looked like a
machine on the bench press
easily doing all three ending
with a 405 pound lift.
Lucas will be in the running
for another medal next year
as he is just scratching the
* surface on his potential.
Senior .Terry Stinson
had probably the. most
impressive performance
out of any lifter I have ever
coached at the state final.
He- beat his bench press
:max by 10 pounds, his
clean and jerk max by 10,
pounds and his total by 20
pounds in the biggest meet
of his life. It's one thing to,
get a new max, but to do it
under the lights at the state


probably never been
prouder of a lifter. TIerry
went 6 for 6 at the meet
getting 315 on the bench
press and 285 on the clean
and jerk. His clean and
jerk was the highest in his
weight class. He came in at
third place overall. Terry
worked hard and finished
his career at Altha with a
truly amazing performance.
As a team we finished
with 5 points and came in
12th place.

With a lot of potentially
great young lifters, the next
couple of years at AHS
could be special. It was
another successful year in
both boys and girls
weightlifting at AHS. We
will now begin preparing for
next year. For more infor-

S NGews Editor
o It, was ,a ;disappointing
end to a_ great season for
the Blountstown Lady'
Tigers last week 'when they
were defeated 10-2' by
Cottondale in the semi-final
'round of the district tourna-
ment at Sneads.
",The 'wind blev like
crazy from the start and it
rained the last three
innings," says Coach
Bubba, Johnson. "We
scored two runs in the sec-
ond and that was all we
got."' .
BHS went into the tour-
nament the number three'
seed and came out with a 4-
4 district record.
"We scored two runs,
had seven hits and made
nine. errors," Coach
Johnson remarks.
"Cottondale had six runs in
the first. Off one hit, there
were two walks and five
errors. Then they got one in
the third and three in the
fifth to win the game. They
had 10 runs, eight hits and
no errors." Only two of
Cottondale's 10,runs'were
earned.
The Lady Tigers walked
six Cottondale batters' and
struck out five. Brittany
Griffin started on the
mound and was relieved in
the first by Ellen Williams


who pitched the rest of the
game.
,.!Leading. hitter for ,the
.Tigers, was Selena .Williams
with a triple, a single and
an RBI. Griffin had a dou-
ble and single. Erin Fowler
offered, a. double. Ellen
Williams had an RBI sin-
gle. Lindsey Doyal added h
single.
The game ended the
Lady Tigers' season with a
14-12 overall record.
I "It's sad that we played
so bad in the last game. Of
course you don't feel bad if.
it's a close game, but we
made so many errors and
playedso poorly it's kind' of
a big let down," says Coach
Johnson.


15) a 2-1 lead.
But Aucilla would plate
four -and five runs in the
third and fourth innings,
respectively, to, seal' the
win.
Once again the Wildcats'
offensive leader was Jake
Edenfield who was 2 for 3,,
scored, twice and he had
two stolen bases. Corey
Johnson was 2 for 2 with a
RBI. Ethan Byler singled
in his two at bats and Jacob
Warner singled in his three
plate appearances.
QUINCY, APRIL 24-


Despite the, sad ending,'
Coach Johnson is optimistic
about the, future of Lady
.Tiger,, softball,. Sixteen, of
our 21 girls were 9th and
10th graders. J.V. was 6-4
and some of those kids will
move up," he remarks.
"We are losing two good
seniors Ellen Williams
and Cherie Hires. Hires
has signed papers to play
for Hillsborough
Community College in
Tampa. Added with her
Bright Futures scholarship,
she has a full ride room,
board and all."
Watch for the Lady
Tigers to be back on the
diamond for summer soft-
ball!

Wakulla Bank is teaching local

5th graders how to save money


Wakulla Bank employ-
ees-are teaching fifth-grade
classes in Calhoun, Leon,
Liberty and Wakulla coun-
ties this month in honor of
"National Teach Children
to Save Day." The bank
plans to reach more than
1,000 students using a fun
and easy-to-understand
American Bankers
Association curriculum
geared toward helping chil-
dren learn to save and
spend wisely.
Wakulla Bank President
and CEO Walter C.
Dodson Jr. said the bank is
participating in the pro-
gram for its third year
because the "Teach
Children to Save" program
helps children learn to
make good decisions on
how to manage their
money.
"It's never too early to
star saving," said Dodson.


"We hope that our partici-
pation. in Teach Children to
'Save can help prepare stu-
dents for a lifetime of sound
money management."
This year the ABA
Education Foundation is
calling on bankers to accept
the Million Child Challenge
and reach 1 million stu-
dents with a, Teach
Children to Save lesson.
Consider these facts:
-According to "The U.S.
Kids Market," a report
from Packaged Facts, the
41 million children in the
U.S. between the ages of 5
and 14 have more than $40
billion in direct buying
power, and annually influ-
ence $146 billion worth of
expenditures.
-A Charles Schwab
Teens and Money 2007,
Survey found that 24 per-
cent of teens think saving is


unimportant because they
are young.
-A 2006 study, by
Weekly Reader Research
and the American Institute
of Certified Public
Accountants shows this age
group is interested in learn-
ing about saving. When
asked what they would do if
given a gift of $100, 59 per-
cent of children between
the ages of 9 and 12 said
they would save at least
$50.
Since the "first National
Teach Children to Save
Day, 60,000-plus bankers
have reached more than
2.8 million children and
teens across the country.
Teachers or parents
interested in learning more
about Teach Children to
Save may inquire at any
Wakulla Bank branch or by
calling 850/926-7111.

Arrow of Truth



...:. Bread From Heaven ....... ,
John 6:51
Mabeth .Clem wrote: I am thinking of my Grandmother
Kauffman's fresh, homemade loaves, Grandma Clem's cin-
namori rolls, Durgin Park cornbread, mammoth.muffins, or
any of a thousand other varieties of bread. This staff of life
is so basic a food that it graces our tables at virtually every
meal. Not only does it relieve hunger and nourish the body;
but also it is truly, by aroma and taste, a comfort food."
But we must all admit bread does have its limits, As won-.
derful as it is to our senses, it cannot make us. immortal.
Even the heaven-sent manna'in the wilderness could not give
the Israelites. eternal life. But in God's son, who was broken
for us, we find the Bread that guarantees us this eternal life.
When we partake of Jesus- by faith, He fills our emptiness,
strengthens our spirits, and delights our hearts. He invites us
to feast upon Him without limit, without cost, without end!
Those who have tried this Living Bread know that He is the
ultimate of all comfort foods.
On some. kitchen shelf sits a cookbook titled Real Bread,
It contains many mouthwatering healthful recipes. I wonder
if the authors know that there is bread more real and more
satisfying thdn anything man has ever. discovered. The
Bread from Heaven!'
Remember Psalm 34:8, "Taste and see that the. Lord is
good." He is the,best spiritual food you will ever eat.

Never A Dull


Moment


by J.K. Newsome


One of my favorite
authors from my formative
years was Joseph
Campbell. He studied ritu-
als and religions all over the
word and made compar-
isons of the similarities he
found, most notably the
reoccurrence of a hero,
hence his work, The hero
has a thousand faces.
Another of his books is The
power of Myth. In honor of
his work, I offer a recent
observation of my own, the
power of cravings!!!
On the way home from
work the i other night, I
stopped by Winn Dixie to
pick up a few items. I like
the fact that they have
those self check out, kiosk,
love um. For some reason,
only 1 of the 4 was operat-
ing. I got in line behind a
guy who was having trouble
with the equipment. He
needed help,. ok we. all do
sometimes, and the atten-
dant got him ran thru.
Then he had trouble with
his debit card. More help
came. About this time I
heard a discouraged grunt
come from behind me. I
turned and found a young
lady, very much pregnant,,
and holding in her arms
these items. Two quarts of
sherbet, and One quart of
Byers Snickers ice cream. I
noticed then that the cus-
tomer service counter was-
empty, and suggested that
she go there, unknowing to
me, the debit card gentle-
man was being lead there to
ring up his order manually.
So more grunts of displeas-
ure came from the young
lady, I motioned her back to
check out ahead of me.
This is where the funr
starts.
Across Hwy. 231 from
this store is a rail road
track, ,we will get back to
that in moment.
She plopped the ice
cream down on" the counter,
selected English as her lan-
guage, and then followed '
the; voice, pf6mpt ito .scarBn
her first item;, "1 softeiingt'
qt. of sherbet, lime I think.
The friendly computer
voice announced to, the
world the price, and invited
her to place it in a bag, she
did. Then the machine, in a
nice voice asked her not to
remove items until they
have completely settled in
the bag, to which the girl
just stares at the monitor as'
if it were insane. (Now, who
has never done that to a
monitor?.?), As if the
machine could sense emo-
tion, it advises to continue
scanning, and then it told
her the weight of the item

as possible so you get the job done promptly and to the best of your
abilities.

TAURUS- Apr 21/May 21 .

makings of a success. Still, this may not be the week to make any
financial investments toward that end. .

GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Single Gemini will find a new mate this'week. Gemini in a relationship'
will strengthen his or her relationship even more. Good days for loye
are Tuesday and Saturday.

Cancer, now is the time to start living healthier. Schedule an appoint-
ment with your doctor for a.physical and make some positive changes
to your lifestyle.

LEO Jul 23/Aug 23 ,
Leo, there's not much you can touch this week that won't work in your
favor. It's easy to. get a big head. But you won't let theego get that far.
A reality check comes on Thursday.

VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
Virgo, there have been a lot of changes in your life. But you adapt very
well and can roll with the punches. Others around you, however, -are
more easily shaken.

LIBRA -. Sept 23/Oct 23
Libra, you find yourself in a predicament when two friends ask you
take sides. There's nothing you can do than to bow out gracefully from
this other "competition" of sorts.

yourself much too hard lately and the cracks are starting to show in
your veneer.

get a break on Friday.

porters and.you'll pull through.

AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18

frivolous purchase just to make yourself smile. Will you be smiling
when the bill comes in?

for fun at your disposal. Pick one this week, Pisces.
