Boating accident claims





life of Blountstown man


,BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A Blountstown man lost
-his life this weekend while
boating on the river he
loved so much.
Rescue workers recov-
ered- the body of Jefferie,
Scott Rector, 28, Monday
morning following a two
day search.
According to Lt. Gary
Applewhite of the Florida
Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC), Rector was dis-
covered near where the
accident occurred approxi-
mately one mile south of
the Chattahoochee boat
landing.
FWC Investigator Tobny
Brunson said Rector and
Mark Hamilton;. 29, of
Marianna, were headed
north on the .river
Saturday afternoon in 'a
15-foot aluminum; boat,
powered by a 75-horse-
power motor, when they


attempted to go around a
navigation buoy. Brunson
said it's unclear exactly
what happened, but as
,they .made a sharp turn,
the vessel hit a wake or
"something" that caused
both men to be ejected.
' Neither man wore a life
jacket.
Hamilton told officers,
after he and Rector were
ejected, the boat began cir-
cling wildly and struck
Rector.,; Hamilton was
pulled! from the river by a
fisherman who was nearby.
"Jeff was so talented,"
his aunit, Debbie Smith,,
told The .County Record.
Monday afternoon. "He
was full of life. He' loved
everybody, he loved; the
river, he� loved, to party."
On, Saturday, Jeff bor-
rowed his aunt and uncle's,
boat, then he and his
friend, Mark, launched at:
Ocheesee . Landing. and'
headed up the river. "He
hit a wake off another boat

and we have stick steering
on our boat," Debbie
remarked. "I think he
probably turned it to the
right too sharp." When he
was thrown out of the boat.
Jeff reportedly was cut.
:"Apparently. it was an
artery." said Debbie.
Hamilton was treated
. on the scene by Gadsden
EMS.' Respue workers


from Gadsden, Jackson,
Liberty, and Bay 'counties
searched the river up until
Monday morning when
Jeff was found in some pil-
ings near the Sneads port.
"My husband and I
searched the river all day
[Sunday] and we looked
right there," Debbie
remarked. She and the
entire family extend their

a wide variety of booths,
but the crowds are asking

lars, bring your goods to

Reader impressed with BHS

basketball coach Tony Davis

To the Editor:
We are definitely blessed to have so many wonderful
teachers here in Calhoun County. I'm very impressed with
Tony Davis, BHS Boys Basketball Coach, and the basket-
ball camp he is running this month for children. He's great
working with children and knows how to teach them the
skills that they need.
We as parents need to take advantage of these oppprtu-
nities to place our children under the mentorship of these
great people.

Foster mom to abandoned

dogs shares their progress

Letter to the Editor:
To date I have been unable to find Sarah and Oreo a
good home so I am entering my 5th week of being a foster
mom
During that time I have been reminded of two things:.
* Animals have the right to live a long and happy life.
* Small things can bring them such joy.
How did we get to the place where some people feel
comfortable in abandoning, or beating or starving animals?
They don't understand what they are missing.
Watching Oreo and Sarah lose the fear in their eyes has
'been priceless. With a bonus - they were easy to house
train.

Family upset after being

asked to move party at park

Dear Editor: I
This letter is a concern for one of our leaders that is in
our community. The person, whom I am speaking of is
Calhoun County School Board Member for District 3, Tim'
Smith.
On May 30, 2009, my family was setting up a birthday
party for my 1 year old son at the public shelter at Four
Mile Creek. Mr. Smith came over and asked my wife and
I what we were doing. I explained that we were setting up
for a birthday party at 11:30. He informed my wife and I
that we needed to move our party because he and his fam-
ily were having.a family reunion. The shelter at Four Mile
Creek is big enough for 2 events to be happening at the
same time. We were on the far end toward the creek area,
while his family was on the.other end of the shelter. He
proceeded to tell us that we are going to move the party.
An argument began, but was quickly dissolved when 911
was called due to Mr. Smith threatening to whip my butt.
After about 30 minutes passed, Mr. Smith and another

Helping Hands Thrift


Shop seeks volunteers


The Helping Hands
thrift shop has been serving
people since 1991, over 18
years. Helping Hands is a
non-profit organization that
receives donations from the
community in order to help
provide eye exams, pre-
scriptions, clothing, and fur-
niture for those that are less
fortunate.
Helping Hands uses
many volunteers to provide
costumer service, stock
shelves, and cleaning.
RSVP Volunteer
Coordinator Maranda
Hartman, assists the new
manager, Johnny Roberts,
in recruiting and training


volunteers who serve at
Helping Hands.
When asked to describe
the. most outstanding or
unusual thing that has hap-
pened at Helping Hands, a
volunteer responded that
one time a man of different
language came in with an
item from another store and
he didn't want them to
charge him for. it again. It
took a lot of laughs and time
but they did eventually
understand him.

If you are interested in

Did you know that the
Child Support
Enforcement Program can
help you:
* Determine the legal
father of your child -
including genetic testing
* Find the father of your
child;
* Get a support order,
including health care cover-
age; and
* Enforce the support
order, even if the father
lives in another state or
country? -
Children deserve the
love .and support of both
parents. We can help with
the financial support your
child needs and deserves.
Sometimes. creating a
financial bond can lead to
the creation of an emotion-
al bond between the child
and the father. A child with
both parents actively
. involved in his life is more
likely to feel loved and
secure, and less likely to
misbehave, drop out of
school, or commit violent
crimes.
Children First is a pro-
gram' of the Florida
Department of Revenue's
Child Support
Enforcement Program.
The funding is provided
through a federal grant
from the Department of


Health & Human Services.
The overall goal of the proj-
ect is to make learning
about child support servic-
es easier and more conven-
ient for Chipola Healthy
Start clients. If you are a
Healthy Start client and
need help with or want to
learn more about child sup-
port services, Trish
Brannon, Outreach
Coordinator, is here to help.

Main Street will meet


Monday at 5:30 p.m.


The next Blountstown
Main Street meeting is set
for Monday, June 8, at 5:30
p.m. at Main Street
Station. Anyone interested
in getting involved is wel-
come to attend.
If you've wondered what
Blountstown Main Street is
all about, it's an effort to
revitalize " downtown
Blountstown. In the past,
the . word 'downtown"
brought to mind an image
of bustling centers of com-
merce and activity. Too
often today, the image is of
vacant, deteriorating build-
ings. Now cities are discov-
ering that with help from
Florida Main Street, down-
town can thrive again.
For the past decade,
Blountstown has been des-
ginated a Main Street com-
munity. Slowly, but surely,,
the efforts of local volun-
teers are paying off. Events


such as the Murder
Mystery Dinner Theatre
help raise funds for down-
town projects. The River
Valley Marketplace, spon-
sored by Main Street on
the first Saturday of every
month, is helping local
artists, crafters, and, farm-
ers have a place to market
their goods. And "Movie on
the Square" nights bring
families- downtown for-, 'an
evening under the stars
watching a feature film
together.
Blountstown Main
Street members have a goal
of creating an economically
healthy and beautiful
downtown. We'd love for
you to be a part of that
vision. If you'd like to get
involved, join us for our
next.meeting Monday, June
8, at 5:30 p.m. at Main
Street Station Restaurant
in Blountstown.

Superior Bank gets behind




Big Bend Baseball League


Ms. Sonya Edenfield.
manager of the Altha
branch of Superior Bank,
presented the Big Bend
Baseball League of
Florida, Inc. a sponsor-
ship check last
Wednesday from
Superior Bank in the
amount of $900 to help
this new adult baseball
league fund it's inaugural
season.
"We are just so proud
to be able to support such
a great effort to organize
these teams. This is a
chance for our younger
players to come out and
watch and learn from
some more experienced
players and also a chance
for the' older players to
come together again. It's
easy to see that this base-
ball league will be great
for our communities,


something to bring people
out on Sunday afternoons
for some good-spirited
.competition and fun.
How can you say 'No' to
that," says Edenfield.
Ms. Edenfield spear-
headed the Superior
fundraising effort which
included nine of its
branches by pledging
support from the Altha
branch and then actively
encouraging others to
participate. Branches
from- " '-. Marianna.
Blountstown, Bristol,
Panama City, Port St.
Joe, Carrabelle,
Apalachicola and Mexico
Beach were all eager to
get m the game.
Morrell Bailey.
League Commissioner
and Altha resident, was
delighted at Superior's
enthusiasm for the proj-


ect. "It takes a lot of time
and effort to get the
league going. We have
plenty of good baseball
players up here. We also
have a lot of people who
like to come out and
watch the games. But we
couldn't do this without
the help of businesses like
Superior Bank. We're
grateful to them for this
generous support," says
Bailey.
Currently. the league
is made up of six fran-
chised teams:
Chattahoochee Red
Birds, Gulf County
Drive, Liberty Diamond
Dawgs, Bay County
Brewers. Calhoun
County Horsqmen and
Jackson County Jays.
Each team can carry, a
25-man roster of players
age 17 and up. This


league and its teams
operate solely on the gen-
erous support of business-
es and individuals within
panhandle communities.
The Big Bend League
is already eight weeks
into the season and about
to begin Round 2, which
is the "Double-Header
Round." Every Sunday
afternoon from now until
the Championship games
begin (August 1st), two,
7-inning Big Bend
Baseball games will be
played in three different
locations. First games
begin at 1:00 p.m. CDT
so there's plenty of day-
fight to get out and catch
the action.

'Inside Out' 5K run,


walk set for June 27

er a 5K run/walk and 1
mile fun run. The race will
be held at Three Rivers
State Park in Sneads on

campers will be encouraged
to be "INSIDE OUT" spiri-
tually and athletically as
they spend time pursuing
the goals set before them.
"INSIDE OUT' is about,
transformation, and it can
only start by looking in the
heart. "As much as you


desire to change behavior, it
will never stick unless you
change the inside. There
needs to be a renovation.
Before you begin to think
about changing the world ...
or your teammates, first
you need t6 change. Being
an 'INSIDE OUT'
Christian is about sacrifice,
commitment and surren-
der."
Please take this chance
to be a part of helping our
youth become great adults.
Even if you can't run you
can get out there and walk.
It doesn't matter if you're

pack or last, there is great
satisfaction in finishing.

tions, please feel free to

Deadline
Monday Noon


St. Mary to host

VBS June 15-19

St. Mary Missionary Baptist
Church would like to invite you
to attend VBS Studio GO! Game
Show! on June 15 - 19, from
5:00 - 7:30 p.m. Excitement
and teamwork await as kids
enter a studio geared for chal-
lenges and fun!
Each day at Studio GO! kids
will participate in the large-


group music, kid�, ,and fun
- where they will be introduced to
a -Bible story and life focus.
Then after kids experience the
other activities of the day, they'll
gather back at Studio GO! to
review, be'encouraged, and be
motivated to go out and serve
others!
Other sites include
PrimeTime Bible Challenge
where kids will explore the bible
story in a variety of interactive
ways and apply the story by


Satan said to Eve that the tree 'of knowledge would
open her eyes,to know good and evil. But the motive was
not a desire for knowledge, but for independence; if they
could know all'that God knew .they would be independent
of Him. -
-Nahum Sarna wrote, "The deceptive nature of the ser-
pent's appeal lay in its interpretation 'of godliness which it
equated with defiance of God's will, with power, rather
than with strength of character."
But, despite the tempter's words, eating of the fruit of
the tree merely 'gave man the capability of distinguishing
right from wrong and made him a free. moral agent. It
immediately produced in)him three characteristics which
could be used for good or evil:
1. GUILT: In eating of the fruit from the tree they had
deliberately disobeyed God. In the realization of that dis-
obedience, they sought to hide themselves from God.
Robert Raines wrote: "A conscience is not a gadget built for
comfort, but an internal time bomb. It ticks away the days,
ready at a decisive moment to blow your life apart by turn-
ing you against your self-interest or setting you apart from
your neighbors." .Their disobedience had destroyed their
previous relationship with God, and their consciousness of
that fact made them seek to hide from Him in fear and in
shame. Rather than make them like God, they now saw
how far apart they had become from Him.
2. IRRESPONSIBILITY: When man separates him-
self from God, he becomes an irresponsible creature.
Seeking 'freedom', he discovers that he has become a
slave. Irresponsible to God, he responds to his selfish pas-
sions. Nahum S'arna wrote: "Freedom and responsibility.
are burdens so great for man to bear that he is in vital need
of discipline. Significantly, the first divine command to
Adam pertains to the curbing of the appetite." Man owes
responsibility to God - but by; his disobedience, and his
consequent ability to choose between good and evil, he
may make his own choice -. and too often that choice
reveals his inherent irresponsibility.
3. REBELLION: In effect, Adam and Eve, by their
disobedience, had become rebels. It is praiseworthy for
man to seek to be like God, if our motive is to emulate His
goodness, but when our motive is one of selfishness and
ambition, we become rebels andtraitors. Thus when we
ignore the laws of God - and ignore God Himself - we sep-
arate ourselves from'God.
Where are you?? Are you hiding behind a tree, seeking
to avoid any confrontation with God? What is the purpose
in your life? -Or do you have any purpose?

This was a big year for
Relay for Life as it was the


25th Birthday of the event
and the Calhoun-Liberty
Relay Committee chose to
celebrate with a birthday
party. Each team chose a
birthday theme, and
Calhoun Correctional
Institution's team theme
was a "Biker Birthday
Bash", hence the name,
"The Chain Gang"!
As partof the evening's
festivities, The Chain Gang
put on a skit, lip-syncing
and acting out, appropri-
ately, The Leader of the
Pack, the 1960's hit by The


Shangri-Las. With a very
dramatic Jimmy, and an
impressive Betty, as well as
the doo-wop girls, The
Pack, and who can forget
mom and dad, the crowd
was wowed by the perform-
ance!
Back by popular
demand and for the third
year in a row on-site
fundraising included the
famous Calhoun C.I. funnel
cake as well as delicious
smoked-chicken dinners,
sausage dogs, hot dogs, and
sweet tea. Other efforts


included glow-necklaces
and tattoos-rub on of
course.
The Spirit of
Competition between
teams was evident through-
out the year. The Chain
Gang would like to say
"Thank you to all the
teams who kept us on our
toes and encouraged us to
be the top fundraising team
again." The event was
amazing, the food was
great, spirit trophies are
nice and the games were a
hoot, but its real dollars


Inwwwthecountyrecord nets]l]


that support cancer that each person who


research and the programs
funded by The American
Cancer Society and that is
the true spirit of relay.
It is the belief of
Calhoun Correctional
Institution's administration


attended the event had a
great time and was reward-
ed by the experience; and
we would like to thank
every person who assisted
in this endeavor and made
it the overwhelming suc-
cess that it was.
