.balhouo County students made quite an impression on the
riders in the motorcade who escorted the "Wall That'Heals'".


Letter to the Editor,'
, As a member of Patriot
Guard Riders and a, Viet
'Nam.Veteran I was part of
.the motorcycle escort that
,passed through both Altha
'and Blountstown on April
-28, 2009. We were briefed
,at the Travel America
f.enter in Marianna only
that your communities
'knew that we were coming.
,No amount of briefing could
:,have prepared us for the
'reception the citizens of
SCalhoun County and the,
-students of your' schools
-bestowed upon us.
As you know, the stu-
'dents held up banners that
,said things. like "Welcome
,Home" and "Thank You".
For too many of us lit was
the' very first time anyone
(who was' ,not there (Viet
Naom) had said that to us.
.One banner alone that
"touched the hearts of many
'said; "Never again will you
be forgotten." There had to
be a lot of dust on the road
I am sure, as many of our
'eyes became blurry when
ewe saw that sign. Soldiers
do not tear up...maybe.
1 There is no way to
express appreciation for the,
way we, who were honored
to escort the "Wall That
*Heals", were greeted by
your community and espe-
cially by your students. I
0now that I speak for all of
-who rode that ride in
saying, "Thank you." Your
cfcmmunity and' educators
and students went well
'above and beyond anything
,we could have anticipated.
God bless all of you and
God bless America.

'Letter to the Editor,
To the members of the
city council of Blountstown
iFlorida:
'bear Gentlemen and
:Madam,
SRecently., a light was
*removed from an electrical
pole from in front of my


property.. at 17069
Northeast Pear Street.
Blountstown. The project
that- has been ongoing on
North Pear Street is not
completed. During this
'construction Mr. Woods,
our City Manager, quarried
me to whether or not I
wished that light to remain.
He approached me on
three different' occasions in
.relationship to this light
which is a simple security
light that I was more than
willing to compensate the
city.
I have numerous securi-
ty lights on my property
and it was recently discov-
ered that I was double pay-
ing for my lights. The elec-
tricity was connected on my
side of the meter and,
'therefore, I was not only
paying: the city for the
lights, but was, providing
the electricity. I have no
idea how long that condi-
tion existed. Hopefully, it
'has been rectified but that
is merely on faith.
It is my desire that a
light is attached to the
existing pole for my person-
al security. I was stunned
when the light' was no
longer' there after a trip to
Shands Hospital. I called
his Honor, Winston Deason,
the Mayor of Blountstown,
and he 'suggested that we
bring the matter before this
council. If this is some new
way.'o obtaining a security,
light the councd is.going to
be very busy with trivia. I
can not see the logic in this
becoming a major incident
in the course of human
events. It is my desire that
this light is replaced in a
reasonable period of time.
It is now May 3, 2009, I
believe that someone could
get around to installing this
light within the next ten
days. I consider this a
waste, of 'time, energy,
paper, and electricity that it
took to, produce this docu-
ment,: l am sincerely grate-
ful for the use of your time
'and energy.
Sincerely.

assault

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor

A Bay County woman is
behind bars, accused of
breaking into a home on
Mark Burke Road in
Blountstown and beating up
a woman inside.
Lauren Henderson was
arrested May 5 charged
with burglary with assault.
According to the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Office, a
man called them the night
of April 15 to report
Henderson had "broke into
his house and jumped on
his girlfriend."
Deputy Jared Nichols
responded to the .scene and
spoke with Carr and his
cousin, Jessica Lynn
Nichols, who said they were
playing video games and
waiting for Jessica's
boyfriend to ,come home
when three females pulled
up one of whom had
allegedly gotten intd an
argument with Jessica earli-
er in the day. When Jessica
saw the girl, she said she
locked the door and told her
to leave. She said the other
two girls then approached,
one of whom was identified
as Henderson. 'Jessica,
alleged Henderson began
pulling the door'and subse-
quently broke it from the
hinges at which, time all
three girls 'came inside.
Henderson allegedly began
fighting Jessica 'while her
cousin tried to keep the
other girls away. One of the
girls, identified as a minor,
reportedly broke away from
Carr and started attacking
Jessica.
At this point, Carr arid
Nichols allege three uniden-
tified males entered the res-
idence and began attacking
Carr. The mother of
Nichols' boyfriend arrived
at her home next door when
the altercation was occur-
ring and attempted to inter-
vene. The fight, then pro-
ceeded to the front yard
before the subjects fled in a
Mercury Sable. Nichols'
boyfriend arrived as they
were leaving and attempted
to chase them. He called the
FHP and was advised to
wait for law enforcement to*
arrive. The investigation led
to Henderson's arrest. No
word on pending arrests.


Meth cont'd---
Sanders' girlfriend, said she
did not reside at the home
and had no idea what was
going on there.
However, evidence dis-
covered at the scene report-
edly indicated all three.
occupants knew meth fwas
being manufactured and,
sold from the residence.
Sanders, Sullivan and
Phipps were all charged
with- manufacturing meth,
possession of listed chemi-
cals, and possession of
meth. Sanders was also

BY AILEEN McQUAGGE

stepped into an area that
looked and smelled like a
garden handsome center-
pieces on the main tables, a
variety of small potted
plants scattered on the oth-
ers flowers and plants
everywhere.
The attendees sampled
the tasty treats displayed so
temptingly while chatting
with friends following/regis-
tration.

BY RON GILLIARD
Hospital Administrator

This is National
Hospital Week (May 10 -
May 16) and I would like
to take this opportunity to
recognize all the wonderful
staff currently working for
you at Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital, as well as our
physicians and our Board.
The theme of the hospi-
tal week this year is "A
Healthy Commitment in
Changing Times." This
turns out to be a very
appropriate theme for this
hospital. We've definitely
been' changing a lot and in
the process we are attempt-
ing to provide a healthy
commitment of courtesy,
compassionate and high
quality care to all we serve.
For three and half years,
our staff has been the key
reason this hospital has
made an amazing turn-
around.
This small hospital
almost died. The Hospital
Board refused to let that
happen. And since they
regained operational con-
trol from a for-profit opera-
tor, we've made tremen-
dous progress in becoming
a viable, high quality hospi-
tal. It has been quite a jour-
ney. Many have con-
tributed to this reversal of
fortunes.
We've improved our
appearance in many ways.
At one point, the lobby per-
haps represented all that
was wrong with the hospital
- drab looking, outdated
furniture, and some really,
really bad carpet. Talk
about bad first impressions!
Now the lobby is bright,
cheerful, clean and attrac-
tive with a big, flat screen
TV.
Several parts of the hos-
pital have been "updated,"
including inpatient rooms,
the Dining Hall, a new
Chapel, the ER, a new reg-
istration office and the
Nursing Station. The front
entrance has new patios
and beautiful flower gar-
dens are blooming out
front. /
Many more rooms are
scheduled to be updated,
and again, most of this

She was crying as were most of the people in th.e.room.
During our celebration of National Hospital Week, she is,
again, a wonderful example of our great staff."


work has been accom-
plished under our Adopt-A-
Room program and With
donated funds to the hospi-
tal. Soon, the laboratory
and administrative offices
will also be spruced up.
(As always, I remind
clubs, businesses, or fami-
lies, or anyone looking for a
good project or to honor a
loved one, the Adopt-a-
Room is a wonderful way to
do so.)

We have LOTS of new
equipment also. I've writ-
ten about it in the past but
let me do a brief recap.
New radiology, clinical
laboratory, and respiratory
therapy equipment has
been purchased. This
includes microbiology,
ultrasound, and mammog-
raphy machines, a portable
and main room. x-ray units.
The ultrasound unit per-
forms echocardiograms
also. All of this equipment
is "state-of-the art" and
allows us to serve you bet-
ter.
We've gotten new beds,
stretchers, vital sign moni-
tors, wheelchairs, and res-


;."U


piratory equipment. We
now have automatic
machines for medications
in the ER and the inpatient
unit. This makes medica-
tion dispensing much safer
for our patients.
We installed new
kitchen equipment includ-
ing a stove, freezer, ice
makers, and serving carts.
We'll soon replace the
emergency generator and
upgrade our heating and air
conditioning system.
We've updated the
"computer side" of our
operations as well and will
be doing even more of this
soon. New copiers and fax
machines have made us
more efficient in several
areas. New, flat screen TVs
are being installed in the
-inpatient rooms and ER as
* well.
So the improvements in
our appearance. and the
new equipment have been
very important to our pro-
viding better care to you.
But I sincerely believe
the real key to our turn-
around has been .our staff
providing that care in the
courteous and compassion-


ate manner I mentioned
above. New flooring is nice.
New curtains are nice. New
equipment is nice. New
TVs are nice. Even pretty
flowers are nice, BUT, if
our staff were not "nice" as
well, all this other would
not matter.
They are hard working,
extremely dedicated, high-
ly professional and commit-
ted to providing good cour-
teous and compassionate
care to you. Thank you
staff, one and all!
Our local physicians and
those working the
Emergency Room are also
the best! We're fortunate
to have excellent doctors in
our rural community. We
thank them for their signifi-
cant contributions to our
turnaround as well. No
docs, no hospital!
And again, our Board
assured this hospital, once
on its death bed, has not
only survived but is now
moving forward in many
*positive ways. The future
is bright due to their strong,
sound leadership! Thank
you Board members!
It's been a real team
effort our Board, our
physicians, and our great
staff.
What about results?
We're seeing record num-
hers of visits to the
Emergency Room as well
as the number of tests in
radiology and lab. In April,
we saw 856 patients in the
ER, performed 250 "Cat"
scans in radiology, and did
over 4,500 tests in the lab!
Our inpatient unit is also
staying busy, including an
increasing number of
"swing bed" patients.
So, most importantly,
we also thank YOU for
using us. No patients, no
hospital!

We are working hard to
live up to the .National
Hospital Week's -theme of
"A Healthy Commitment in
Changing Times." And we
will continue to do so.
Give me a call if you
have any comments on our
efforts at that, or if you
have any questions about
the hospital at 674-5411,
ext 206.

The Tigers completed
the first week of spring
practice in full pads.
Overall the players are
working hard and have
good attitudes at this point.
We have several. new
players that are learning
where to go and what to do
but for the most part we are
way ahead of where we
were at this point last year.
We have several key play-
ers back from last season
that are providing good
leadership to the younger
players.
We have two weeks to
prepare for our spring game
against Freeport, which by
all indications will have a
strong team this year with a
lot of returning starters
from last season. It will be a
good test of where we are to


close out the spring and
start building for next fall.
The spring game will be
Friday, May 22, at home at
6:30. There will be no kick-
off or special teams of any
kind due to time constraints
and safety of the players.
Look forward to seeing you
at Bowles Field next week.
Go Tigers!!!

families to help themselves

an organization that helps
hundreds of thousands of
families in 35 states.

* boxes, ranging in price from
$21 for a special to $35 for

eggs and milk, enough to
help feed a family of four


for a week. To purchase a
special you must first order
a standard box; there are
four standard boxes (signa-
ture, senior/convenience,
allergen-free or seafood)
from which to choose.

What do
the "wise"
voices tell us
about coping
with the
passing of
Tim Adams someone
Funeral Dirco, close? What
worked for'
them, as -
"real people" who have
gone through this
challenging experience?
What do the experts and
"non-experts" recommend
or advise? This is something
I ran across that I thought
was pretty profound: "Grief
never ends, but it
changes...It's a passage,
not a place to stay.:The
sense of loss mudt give way
if we're to value the life that
was lived. Grief is not a.sign
of weakness, nor a lack-of
faith. It is the price of love."
Grieving is a process that
takes time. If you're one of
the family members we
have served, we would like
you to know you are still in
our thoughts.
Remember and be
grateful for the one you lost.

Congressman Allen Boyd shapes final budget



Votes for honest budget resolution, path to PAYGO


WASHINGTON, D.C.
- U.S. Congressman Allen
Boyd (D-North Florida), a
leader of the Blue Ddg
Coalition and one of only
five conferees on the House
Budget, recently voted in
support of the Concurrent
Budget Resolution (S. Con.
Res. 13), which establishes
a blueprint for Fiscal Year
2010, brings honesty and
accountability to the budg-
et process, .cuts wasteful
deficit spending, and
includes budget enforce-
ment tools, long advocated
by Congressman Boyd, to
chart a path to fiscal disci-
pline.
With the support of
President Obama and
House Leadership,
Congressman Boyd and the
Blue Dogs were successful
in insisting that the Budget
Resolution direct the
House to agree to statutory
PAYGO before addressing
some of the government's


major anticipated expendi-
tures. This requirement
will prevent Congress from
considering massive and
expensive programs with-
out the passage of pay-as-
you-go, which prohibits
deficit spending.

The -budget also
requires that any health-
care reform legislation not
add to our budget deficit
and includes funding for
program integrity to identi-
fy waste and abuse in gov-
ernment spending.
Congressman Boyd, as
chair, of the Blue Dog
Budget Task Force, also
played a critical role in
bringing down discre-
tionary spending below the
House ,Budget Resolution
levels, and ensuring that
any energy-related legisla-
- tion go through regular
order and have bipartisan
input.
"For the first time in


eight years, we are working
with an honest document
that accurately reflects the
full scope of our spending
obligations," said
Congressman Boyd. "Four
weeks ago, I supported the
House Budget Resolution
because it took significant
steps to reverse the irre-
sponsible fiscal policies that
have contributed to this
unprecedented financial
crisis, but I knew we could
do more and we have.
This Resolution cuts waste-
ful spending and makes
responsible investments
into key national priorities,
such as healthcare and vet-
erans' funding, and also
gives us a clear path toward
reducing the federal deficit
with the passage of statuto-
ry PAYGO. With this
Budget Resolution,
Congress and the President
are sending a very clear
message to the American
people that we are commit-


ted to addressing the seri-
ous long-term fiscal chal-
lenges facing this country
and doing so in a responsi-
ble way."
Congressman Boyd
worked to include the fol-
lowing key priorities in the
budget resolution:
V A commitment to
pass statutory pay-as-you-
go (PAYGO) in the House
of Representatives .
V Closing the gap
between spending and rev-
enues by cutting the deficit
by nearly two-thirds by
2013
V Reduces 'non-security
discretionary spending $10
billion below the
President's request
V Does not provide rec-
onciliation for cap-and-
trade legislation and does
not assume any revenues
from' cap-and-trade are
dedicated to any specific
policy
V Includes a reserve

last week with Majority Leader Steny Hoyer.


fund that requires health
care reform to be deficit
neutral
V Includes full funding
for the President's defense
request for overseas mili-


tary operations
V Funds the President's
budget request for veterans

Legal Notice
Notice and Public Explanation of a
Proposed Activity In the 100-Year
Floodplain and Wetland

To: All interested Agencies, Groups an(
Individuals

This Is' to give notice that the City o
Blountstown has conducted an evaluation
as required by Executive Orders 11981
and 11990 In accordance with HUD regu
lations at 24 CFR 55.20 to determine the
potential affect that its activity in the flood
plain and wetland will have on the environ
ment.

The City of Blountstown intends to under
take a project to be funded by a Florida
Small Cities Community Developmen
Block Grant. The proposed project shal
consist of the replacement of the existing
lift station on Thomas Ave and the replace
ment of the _" watermain on Ward St witl
a larger, 6", watermain. The City will also
resurface Ward St after the watermain is
installed.

It has determined that it has no practicable
alternative other than to proceed with the
work. This activity will have no significant
impact on the environment for the follow
ing reasons:

-All of the proposed work will be construct
ed within the footprint of the existing facill
ties.
-Best Management Practices shall be
employed to prevent erosion.

Although the project Is located In the 10(
year floodplain, the improvements cannb
be undertaken In any other location due tc
the scope of the project. There is, there
fore, no practicable' alternative.

applicable floodplain protection standards

or beneficial floodplain values, and resi
dents of the community will benefit front
the project. Upsizing the existing water
main along Ward St. will allow this line
segment to provide fire flow protection to
this area. The lift station replacement or
Thomas Ave will bring the station into
compliance with FDEP standards and wil
help In preventing future lapses in service
at this station. Failure to provide these
improvements could result in fines and
penalties to the City of Blountstown front
the Florida Department of Environmenta
Protection.

Horoscopes

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Aries, the snail's pace this week makes it seem as though the week
will never end. But before you know it the weekend will arrive and with
it a chance to have a little enjoyment.

TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
Think-hard about the words you are going to say when a friend asks
.you for your opinion, Taurus. You want to tell the truth but not hurt any
feelings in the process..

GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Unexpected travel puts you in a sour mood, Gemini. If it were for
pleasure then that would be one story. But a business trip is not high
on your list of priorities.

CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
Cancer, the warm weather has you seeking an outdoor project to keep
you busy. It'll be a good way to get something done and soak up a few
rays of sunlight.

LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
It's time you pull your weight around the house a little more, Leo. Your
partner has been doing his or her fair share and you aren't holding up
your end of the bargain.

VIRGO Aug.24/Sept 22
Virgo, you may feel like the target of stares or accusations. But in real-
ity it's.all being exaggerated in your mind. Relax and try to enjoy the
people around you.

LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
No one appreciates a sore loser, Libra, so even if you don't come out
on top, keep a big smile on your face. A change of luck arrives shortly
and it comes from an unexpected person.

SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
Scorpio, you feel like a predator on the prowl but can't zero in on your
target just yet. Why not make your goal something for the greater
good?'

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21
Sagittarius, if ever there was a time you could use some relaxation,
that time is now. This week starts off with a whirlwind of activity and
later fizzles into something manageable.

CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
All eyes are on you, Capricorn, and you're not sure if you like the extra
attention. If not, stay out of the spotlight and hang at home for a while.
Big news comes Friday.

AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
You may be waiting for the prize patrol to arrive at your door with a big
check, Aquarius, but the reality is you have to work for that extra
money you desire.

PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
A change of heart has you looking at a person in a different light,
Pisces. Maybe this relationship will move to a different level.

father preached in
Cottondale in 1917 and
Bill continued to court
her there.
Late that same year
her father was moved
to a sawmill town near
Geneva where she did
not want to go. She
spent the Christmas
holidays in Cottondale
with a friend. Bill went
over and they got mar-
ried. And according to
Bill they have lived
"happily ever after."
They have two daugh-
ters who have two 'chil-
dren each and they
have eight great-grand-
children who are scat-
tered all over the U.S.
We congratulate
them for their long,
happy marriage and
hope they have many
more anniversaries.
My grandmother
was Mary Estelle
Dismukes, and as the
article mentioned, her
father came from
Alabama to
Blountstown to preach
at the Methodist
Church, bringing his
family along.
My grandfather,
William 'Spencer
Gaskin, was the
youngest son of
Hazelius Beauregard
Gaskin of Blountstown.
H. B. Gaskin had a tur-
pentine plantation on
property just inside the


Bill and Estelle Gaskin on their 60th wedding
anniversary


current city limits of
Blountstown on
Highway '71 South.
The old Gaskin house is
still standing and can be
seen from the road on
the left as you pass
Mimosa Street.
Bill was quite a
handsome country gen-
tleman and used to ride
his thoroughbred horses
to town to court the
ladies until... he met
Estelle. The story that
was passed down to me
was that there was a
dance hall or possibly it
was a skating rink in
the Old Yon Hotel. The
old timers, can correct
me on this, but whatev-
er it was, the lovely
Estelle played the
piano there (much 'to
the disapproval of her
father) and some good
times were had by all.
They may have met at
church on the same
bench, but the
courtship was sealed by


the piano at the Old
Yon Hotel.
IBill and Estelle are
buried at Nettle Ridge
Cemetery next to my
mother and father,
Doris and Wayman
Cayson and are a part
of the rich heritage of
Blountstown. I miss
them all very much, but
.have wonderful memo-
ries of them and grow-
ing up in Blountstown.
As my Father used
to say, you would have
to look far and wide to
find a better place to
'live than Blountstown,
and no matter how far
away we all stray on
this big old globe,
there's "no place like
home."
It is with gratitude
and appreciation that I
say thank you to the
Heritage Book
Committee for keeping
the old stories of


I have read with
enjoyment the featured
articles of "Honoring
Our Ancestors" in The
County Record and felt
compelled to send in
the wonderful story of
my grandparents, Bill
and Estelle Gaskin. I
must confess that I
would never have
known much of the
story had I not found a
1981 article from the
Blountstown United
Methodist Church
Bulletin stuck in an old
photo album. Hereis a
copy of the article:
This week we honor
Bill and Estelle Gaskin
who will be married 64
years on December 20.
Estelle and her fam-
ily came down the river
from Columbia on a
cold, frosty morning
late in 1915. They
arrived in Blountstown
about daylight. They
were taken to the
Methodist parsonage
where no one was
expecting them.
Estelle's father
came here to preach
and she and Bill first
met in Sunday School
where they were sitting
on opposite ends of the
bench. Every time, he
would look at her, she
was looking at, him.
Their courtship; cen-
tered around the Old
Yon Hotel. Estelle's

Flag ceremony at


the square May 22


'A flag ceremony will
take place at Magnolia
Square Park in downtown
Blountstown on Friday,
May 22, at 8:00 a.m. We
encourage everyone to be
with us and honor our fallen
heroes from Calhoun
County.
Flags will be placed
around the fountain. Drew
Peacock, a veteran from
World War II, ,will read
each name as his fellow
Lions unveil a flag for each
veteran who gave his life for


his country.. Also the
Amvets will provide per-
sonnel'to salute each veter-
an. Last, a basket of flow-
ers will be set between the
flags.
Bring your lawn chairs
and let's fill Magnolia Park
with people who do not
take their heroes for grant-
ed, who love both county
and country. It's the least
we can do for those who
gave the ultimate price for
our liberty.


Top students cont'd-


drugs, stay in school," he
says with a grin.
Following close behind
within a tenth of a point of
his grade point average is
Cherie Hires who has
earned the salutatorian
honors.
The 'daughter of Shelby
and Katrina Hires, Cherie
recently signed a softball
scholarship to play for
Hillsborough Community
College. She plans to
attend there for two years
and receive her AA degree
in pharmacy. "I would then
like to transfer to a phar-
maceutical accredited uni-
versity to obtain my bache-
lor of science' in pharma-
ceutical sciences," says
Cherie. "The next two
years will be spent getting
my pharmaceutical doctor-
ate degree."
A decade from now,
Cherie hopes to be all fin-
ished with school and on
the job. "I want to be suc-
cessful in my pharmacy
career and settled down


with a family, hopefully
somewhere like the town I
* grew up in," she remarks.

As she worked diligently
during high school, Cherie
says she was most inspired
by her sister, Amber Adams
Barth. "She overcame a life
threatening illness as a
child," she explains.
Knowing what her sister
went through and survived
helped Cherie gain deter-
mination, the trait that
helped her reach her aca-
demic goals.
Her advice to those with
their high school days still
ahead is quite simple, but
powerful, on the road to
success: "Pay attention and
learn the skills to overcome
procrastination."
