TRAGEDY


MEMORIAL DAY


claims


local


home
BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
A holiday weekend gath-
ering turned tragic for a
Clarksville family after a
blaze claimed their home
anti all possessions.
Don and , Valerie
,Seaman were hosting a
cookout for their children
and grandchildren Friday
night at their home on
Pippin Road. They had set
up tents so Don anid the
young kids could have a
campout after dinner. Four
of the five little ones - rang-
ing in age. from four to
seven - were in the front
yard with the family, but
the youngest of the grand-
kids, a one year old little
boy, was sleeping on the
sofa. His grandfather had
decided to take a rest in the
chair nearby,'but got up just
before 10 p.m. to join the
rest of the family outside.
As they sat around visit-
ing, Valerie looked up to see
smoke coming from the
mobile home.
.Her son-in-law, Anthony
Patterson, immediately
thought of his little nephew
asleep on the couch. He
opened the door to the
home and was over-
whelmed by smoke. "He
dove in and crawled to get
the baby," says Valerie.
The Carr-Clarksville
Volunteer Fire Department
arrived on the scene within
minutes and worked until 4
a.m. to extinguish the
blaze. The home was a total
loss.
"They worked hard,"
says a grateful Don.
"And they got here
quick," adds Valerie.
Despite losing, every-
thing they owned, the
Seamans are extremely
thankful that no one in
their family.was hurt. Their
grandson was taken to
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital
as a precaution due to
smoke inhalation, but he
was fine.
Over the weekend, after
the fire was out, the family

The County Record, MAY 27, 2009, Page 2


To the Editor:
This is what was read to
the Board of County
Commissioners at their
meeting held Tuesday, May
19, 2009.
Commissioner Wyrick,
Mr. Chairman,
It appears most dealings
for the Board of
Commissioners are handle
outside the Commissioners'
meetings with permission
given after projects have
started and some cases
after completed. ,
Government personnel,
elected or hired, answer to
the people of this great
community. The population
does not answer to this
authority. The people are
a free society not controlled
by a MONARCHY. We
are neither SOCIALIST,
COMMUNIST nor predes-
tined to government. The
people of this country were
not born with a silver spoon
in their mouths yet worked
and strived so each may
obtain that spoon. Our
taxes to the government
and tithing to a church is,
given for the betterment of
all. Taxes were not to
empower, nor sanction
while placing-burden upon
its populace. I need not let
know you your place so I
will only remind you of its
truth.
At the Calhoun County
Commissioners meeting on
5 May 2009 people of the
audience were DISGUST-
'ED at the behavior of Mr.
O'Bryan. He was DIS-
RUPTIVE, INSULTING,
INSUBORDINATE AND
DISRESPECTFUL
toward all. He also made
numerous false statements.
All of these are. cause fpra
letter of reprimand or sus-
pension without pay and or
termination. Look in the
employee's handbook.
These exploits should not
been allowed and will no
longer be tolerated.
1. Mr. O'Bryan's DIS-
RUPTIVE CONDUCT
was the foundation for
many points not to be
heard. His method and
demeanor while undermin-
ing-all. authority was an
appearance to illustrate his'
influence of the board.


2. Mr. O'Bryan's lack of
RESPECT for board mem-
bers was made known.
While his DISRESPECT-
FUL BEHAVIOR is called
charismatic by some yet he
is positioned in a manner to
show jocularity towards
others without them having
recourse.
3. Mr. O'Bryan contin-
ues 'to be INSUBORDI-
NATE with non-compli-
ance of the commission's.
orders. Mr. O'Bryan has a
loose cannon attitude. Mr.
O'Bryan continues to be
REBELLIOUS when
approached with the whole
story by changing the items
being discussed to some-
thing else exclusively not
the subject.
4. Mr. O'Bryan has con-
stantly MADE FALSE
OFFICIAL STATE-
MENTS to the board by
saying things such as. (a) I
have no dog in this fight (b)
I know what is best for the
county (c) In my opinion w/
" no data to back it up. '(la)
Lime rock specs are his
specs for bid not based on
science.. (b) Roads being
built that go nowhere. (ic)
Not informing the board of
projects till someone stum-
bles upon- it. (Id) Not bid-
ding out as required for
items, greater than
$10,000.00. On and so on
and so forth it goes.
Mr. O'Bryari INTER-
RUPTED MR. LAYHE
when he was speaking with-
out the board's approval.
Mr. O'Bryan acts as the
6TH COMMISSIONER.
MR. LAYHE was attempt-
ing to let the board know
that he and MR. JOE
WOOD had spoken and a
right of way was worked
out. Because of Mr.
O'Bryan's actions, a lack of
respect and total DISRE-
GARD for the rules of
order, Calhoun County will
have the PROSPECT of
taking another CITIZEN to
court and lose money,
RESPECT and mostly
have more VOTERS not
TRUST OFFICIALS of
this county. Joe Wood was
ordered not to speak with

BY AILEEN McQUAGGE

ing ideas and cementing
friendships - a lovely end to
the day.
Before breaking for
lunch, Willard Smith stated'
that the Settlement wants
to arrange events that will
attract the community and
to teach children good val-
ues.
What a delicious lunch!
The clubwomen opt did
themselves '- the food not
only looked tempting, but
tasted fabulous. It was
easy to eat too much!
The Door Prize - a love-
ly coverlet in an Indian
motif - was won by Clara
McCroan.
After lunch, a brief busi-
ness meeting'was held. .
Marti Vickery thanked
the Club for having her as a
guest.
Hazel Capps accepted'
the Club's invitation to
become a club member.

ed 'a $500.00 check to
Willard and Linda Smith.

Annie Dell Session and

of Mr. Robert Lee Session

Why shop local?
Blountstown Main
Street encourages area res-
idents to support locally
owned businesses. When
you shop at an independ-
ently owned business, your
entire community benefits:
The Economy
Spend $100 at a local
and $68 of that stays in
your community. Spend the
same $100 at a national
chain, and your community
only sees $43.
Local businesses create
higher-paying jobs for our
neighbors.
More of your taxes are
reinvested in your commu-
nity--where they belong.
The Environment
Buying local means less
packaging, less transporta-
tion, and a smaller carbon
footprint.
Shopping in a local busi-
ness district means less
infrastructure, less mainte-
nance, and more money to
beautify your community.
The Community
Local retailers are your
friends and neighbors-
support them and they'll


support you.
Local businesses donate
to charities at more than
twice the rate of national
chains.
More independents
means more choice, more
diversity, and a truly
unique community.

From time to time our agreements with cable
channels and television stations come up for
renegotiation. While we make every effort to
ensure that there will be no loss or interruption
- in service, we also need to protect our " ''
company and our loyal customers from
unreasonable demands which would cause the
cost of our service to rise excessively. Our
agreement with Lifetime Networks
(Lifetime/Lifetime Movies and Lifetime Real
Women) expires on June 30,2009, and we may
have to cease carriage if our authority to
continue is withheld. We are working diligently
at this time to try to come to acceptable and
fair terms with these channels.

Tigers fall to Freeport in spring game


Above: Brandon Smith stretches for extra yardage against
Freeport. Top left: Quarterback PJ Buggs gets a pass off
under heavy pressure. Top right: PJ. Buggs prepares to pitch
the ball on an option play in the loss.to Freeport.


The Blountstown Tigers got their first taste of competi-
tion after a grueling Spring practice Friday night at Bowles
Field against Freeport. The Tigers had some new names
on the field, some players in new positions, and some play-
ers on the sideline with injuries who might have made a
difference in the outcome. Freeport took a commanding
21-0 lead by halftime, but Blountstown mounted a come-
back and. narrowed the margin to 27-22 in the fourth quar-
ter. A late Freeport touchdown run of 60+ yards gave the
visitors a 34-22 victory.
"We're glad we got to play a team. of Freeport's caliber
so we can really see where we stand and what we need to
work on," coach Greg Jordan said Tuesday. "We didn't
play very well. We were trying some different things on
defense and missed some assignments. Our kids had a
great spring and we'll have to work hard this summer to
get better."
Jawon Mosley rushed for 93 yards on 11 carries and
scored on a 26 yard carry in the fourth quarter. PrincetoIn
Grant rushed for 99 yards on 9 carries and had a 5 yard
touchdown run in the fourth quarter. Brandon Smith had
30 yards on 6 attempts and scored on a 9 yard run.
Darren Huff had 28 yards on 6 carries but suffered a knee
injury during the game and will be evaluated this week.
Probable starter Alexander Garrett is recovering from a
knee injury in October and did not see action. -
Quarterback PJ Buggs completed 5 of 12 passes for 54
yards and threw one interception for the Tigers.
Patrick Wilson, Jason Money, and Jawon Mosley were
the leading tacklers on defense for Blountstown.
The Tigers will return to District 2 Class 1-A next sea-
son. The six team district will be composed of
Blountstown, Liberty County, West Gadsden, Franklin
.County, Port St. Joe and Wewa. The student cutoff num-
ber was set at 526 and Blountstown High School had 409.
The cutoff number in 2004 was 411 and BHS had 417
forcing them to compete in District 2 Class 2-B.

Calhoun County third graders


lARR HOOiNWS exceed state average on FCAT


The percent of Florida
third-graders performing at
or above grade level in
math reached its highest
point to date according to
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT)
results released last week.
Here in Calhoun
County, third graders
scored above state average
in both reading and ,math.
Calhoun County students
averaged a 325 on the
mean scale score in reading
while the state average was
313. A total of 82 percent
of local third graders scored,
at level 3 or above com-
pared to, a 71 percent state
average.
In math, Calhoun
County third graders had a
353 mean scale while the
state average was 337. The


percentage scoring at level
3 or above locally was 89
percent, well above the
state average of 78 percent.
Over in Liberty County,
third graders had a 315
mean scale score in reading
with 80 percent at level 3
or above, also above state
average. Liberty County
third graders fell slightly
below state average in
math with a 328 mean
scale score and 75 percent
scoring level 3 or above.
"I'm highly encouraged
by this year's third grade
math results and the
progress our students have
made over the last decade,"
said Education
Commissioner Dr. Eric J.
Smith. "Year after year, our
students, teachers and
school administrators show


us that through their hard,
work and passion, incredi-
ble gains can be achieved."
Florida also continues to
experience long-term read-
ing progress. Although the
percentage of third-graders
reading at or above graded
level dropped slightly this
year, the percentage of
third-graders reading at or-
above grade' level has
grown 14 percentage points
since 2001.

"Although it appears
we've reached a plateau
with this year's reading
results, I'm confident
Florida is poised to push
forward with new initiatives
and strategies that are
specifically defined to move
student achievement to the
next step," said Smith.

Arrow of Truth

by Rev. R.W. Waterman

The World Has Become Insensitive
Ephesiaos 4:19
This generation has lost its ability to be embarrassed-
about almost anything. This observation grabs my attention'
and I cannot get it out of my mind.
, Unfortunately the statement is correct. We have lost our
sensitivity. Sin no longer shocks us. Words and expressions
that would have made, us very uncomfortable 20 or fewer
years ago are now used casually by the majority of people.
Television programs that would have been banned ten or fif-
teen years ago are now accepted as normal. Conduct that
was called sinful not many years ago is now viewed as an
acceptable alternative. Like the people the apostle Paul
referred to, our understanding is darkened and our hearts
have been hardened V.18.
No one enjoys blushing. It makes us feel conspicuous
and awkward, But we cannot be in time without God's val-
ues and be insensitive. It sounds like an unusual request,
but we need to ask God to raise up men and women who still
know how to blush.
There is an answer to this disease of insensitivity. It is
found in the prayer of David in Psalm 139:23-24: "Search
'me, 0 God, and know my heart: Test me and know my anx-
ious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and
lead me in the wdy everlasting." ,


like I had been on holy ground."
, The question we need to ask is, "How will it be with us
when we stand before our heavenly Father?"

Nominations sought for the


Fla. Agricultural Hall of Fame


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.


ALTHA POEM

Submitted and wdflten by

Bill Cloud



I have heard the stories
of this quiet and peaceful town
where the people grubbed for wages
from the richness of the ground.

Cotton fields are gleaming
like snow upon the ground
horses hitched to wagon
as they made their way to town.

Moonshine stills were working
through the night into the day
just to help the less fortunate
to balance out.their pay.

Old Jesse's store was busy
even though the times were bad
people buying groceries,
with what little money they had.

If their pocket books were empty
and the pantry was bone dry
old Jesse would carry them
till better times come by.

They tell me of the shootings
of the cutting and the fights
those demons sure run wild
on ahot and steamy Saturday night.

"I've heard about the preachers
who brought revivals to this town
� shouting and singing
till God's power would come down.


S They often speak of the river
that runs so deep and cold
food from those dark waters
have fed many a hungry soul.

There was an old country doctor
who would ease the peoples pain
serving .several counties
Doc Dowling was his name.

They tell me you must be careful
when you start to cast a stone
the one you're aiming at
just might be one of your own.

They say my father was a trapper
and his word was his bond
some knew him as being rowdy
most knew him as Coon John.

I never really knew him
even though he often tried
hardness caused my distance
some might call it pride.

My mother was a lady.
who lived in times of despair
she cut 'the cord that bound us
and placed me in another's care.

I am not like most people
when it comes it comes to the family trbe
when asked about my family
I can boast about all three.

Most people can claim two families
but to me that has no appeal
my roots sprang from three families
the Clouds, the Baileys and the Edenfields.

Most of the. old timers have departed
buT their stories still linger on
to live forever in memory
of those who call this home.,

Family requests prayers as little


Bradley Johnson, Jr. faces surgery


Please take a moment to
say a prayer for Bradley
Johnson,Jr. He will under-
go another brain surgery on
Thursday, May 28th.
After having a shunt
placed in April of this year.
a CT scan showed bleeding
believed to be the result of
blood vessels that burst.
resulting in a subdural
nematoma. He was
referred to Sacred Heart


Hospital in Pensacola to see
a pediatric neurosurgeon
for a second opinion.
Bradley will undergo sur-
gery Thursday to drain the
blood that accumulated and
caused his brain to shift out
of place.
After surgery, he will
remain in the hospital for
the next three to six days to
make certain that his brain
will shift back into its prop-


er position. It is highly pos-
sible he will have to under-
go a third surgery to
replace the value of his cur-
rent shunt, as that is what
is believed to be causing the
blood vessels to burst.
We appreciate all the
prayers and any donations.
Bradley, Jr. has an account
at Regions Bank.
Thank you. Bradley
and Sarah Johnson
