GRANT


City is

awarded

$300k for

Catalyst

Project
The City of Blountstown
has taken the lead on secur-
ing infrastructure for the
Northwest Florida Rural
Catalyst Project. The City
applied for and was award-
ed a Rural Infrastructure
Fund grant for $300,000 to
assist with project feasibili-
ty studies and engineering
plans.
The Calhoun County
Industrial Park was desig-
nated by the Governor's
Office of Tourism, Trade,
and Economic
Development (OTTED)
and Enterprise Florida as
the site of the Northwest
Florida region's Catalyst
Project in 2007. Initially,
much work was done at the
state level to develop plans
for the project. Since then,
local leaders have, hit the
ground running in an effort
to secure funds to assist.
with evaluation, of current
infrastructure, and plans for
the extension of water and
sewer to the site.
Though the Catalyst site
is located beyond the
Blountstown city limits, the.
City has taken the lead on
water and sewer infrastruc-
ture and management, as
the County does not have
the proper resources and
staff. The Calhoun County
Board of ' County
Commissioners will own
and maintain the roadways
and stormwater facilities
within the Industrial Park.
The Rural
Infrastructure Fund grant
will enable engineers to
determine what improve-
ments will be necessary for
the existing 'facilities in
order to accommodate
potential industries. The
intent is to provide building
pad ready sites so that
investors will be able to
expedite the start-up of the
new businesses. In order to
provide these building pad
ready sites, a more detailed
site plan, including plans for
the proposed utilities, 'will
be necessary. Their feasibil-
ity study will also assess the
impacts of the proposed
developments on the exist-
ing utilities of the City of
Blountstown, providing

for penned & staked dogs

Letter to the Editor,
I've been lying here this morning listening to penned or
staked dogs. Some are yappers, yipers and bayers. All
supposed to be "man's best friend".
.You hear them when it's raining, cold and when the
sun's beating down - maybe when they're hungry, lonely
or just plain bored. Some just cower and are still.
And, it's not just one area. They're calling from North,'
South, East and West.
A pack animal, they just plain like to be around folks.
and qne another.
I think we're like pack animals, too, but many of us just
don't want to be around our dogs.
Yes, barking is a nuisance but it pains me hearing their
complaint.
You're not doing.them a favor - "giving them a home."
One look at their faces will tell you they aren't happy,
but they are loyal.
Why have them around? So dog lovers can listen?
Margaret Hoch

Family grateful to staff of

Calhoun-Liberty Hospital

y- - Dear Editor:
The small town of Blountstown has alot to be thankful
', . for. Yes, we have beautiful rivers, courteous citizens, and
. good eating' restaurants. But I do believe it is time to rec-
ognize something that in the past has taken alot of heat.
.Calhoun Liberty Hospital Emergency Room and EMS
Services.
Friday, May 22nd, was a day of much fright for my fam-
ily. The pillar of our family, Marlene Blankenship, was
rushed to the ER by ambulance with a.horrible headache.
Upon arrival at the ER, she was greeted with the most pro-
fessional and cotirteous staff, Dr. Samonas and nurses. She
was very quickly evaluated and her pain assessed. Within
a very few short moments she was having a CT scan of her
head and results were back within moments. Dr. Samonas
Swas very professional and very up front with us about
everything. He wasted no time reporting to us that she
was bleeding in her brain, and quickly began her transport
paperwork to Dothan, where she underwent surgery the
next morning.
I said all of this to let everyone in Calhoun County and
the surrounding counties know NOT to be afraid to go to
Calhoun Liberty Hospital. I am very proud to say that I
support this hospital 100% and I am very thankful to be
D o tow m arket to able to have such a great hospital in such a time of need.
Thanks and very proud,
Fred Blankenship and family

Legion ladies lend a hand


to family after house fire


BY.KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
One plus about small
town life is the way folks
come together to support a
neighbor in need. Such was
the case Monday morning
when members of ,the
American Legion Post 272
Ladies Auxiliary rushed to
help a local resident and his
family just hours after a fire
damaged their home.
Jimmy Mitchell was
awakened at 5:45 a.m. by
his frightened daughter.
"Daddy. the house is on
fire!" she shouted."
Mitchell says he found
his living room chair com-
pletely engulfed in flames
with fire running up the
curtains. He threw the
chair outside and reached
to pull the curtains down
before the flames made it to
the ceiling. As he did, some
plastic insulation had melt-.
ed onto the curtains and
dripped, causing a serious
burn to his right hand.

Bag-0-Books

Library is sponsoring "Bag-
O-Books" $17 donations for

gram next year. If you are
interested in promoting
family literacy and you love

desk. Go to the Book Nook

Center from 10 a.m. until.
Lunch will be served at

ered dish and beverage.

Hall in Marianna
The 33rd annual Glisson
Family Reunion and the

Port Company of the 495th
Battalion will be held on

you may contact Jeannette
Woodham at 850-592-2685
or Winton Glisson at 863-
533-4409.


Meanwhile, Mitchell's
daughter, who happens to
be about eight' months
pregnant, ran for water and
the family managed to
extinguish the blaze them-
selves.
Mitchell believes a
faulty wire is to blame for
the fire.
"Another 10 minutes
and it would "have been a
goner," he remarks, noting
that the damage was con-
tained to the. living room
area where a wall was total-
ly destroyed. "I was plan-
ning to replace that wall,
but not today."'.
Fortunately, several
family members and
friends arrived first thing
Monday to pitch in and
help him repair his home.
Also lost in the fire were
baby clothes that had been
given to Mitchell's daugth-
.-ter on- Sunday .at a-baby
.shower. She had placed


them in the living room:
chair before she went to
bed Sunday night.
Mitchell explains that
the house was a gift from
his mother and truly a
blessing. With help from his
daughter , and her
boyfriend, he has been
doing extensive repairs to
the home and recently
added central heat and air
conditioning. The damages
from the fire were a set-
back, but the family plans
to move past it and contin-
ue their home improve-,
ment efforts.
Without insurance, the
family was unsure of how
they would pay for the
repairs. But the American
Legion Ladies Auxiliary
stepped in just five, hours
after the blaze and donated
$300 to the Mitchell family.
The Mitchells are extreme-
ly grateful and extend their
appreciation to all the
members.

CO-OPS AND CONGRESS, TOGETHER WE CAN

KEEP ELECTRICITY AFFORDABLE.


These are hard economic times for America's families. Many are struggling
to afford the basics: food, housing, and energy.

In fact, the cost of electricity is up 40 percent since 2002 and projected to go even
higher-and today's electricity supplies won't be able to keep pace with
future demand.

We need an answer right now to keep our electricity affordable.

The solutions won't be easy-but America's electric cooperatives are ready
to work with Congress toward an energy plan we can all afford.

Ask your elected officials to work with America's consumer-owned,
not-for-profit electric cooperatives. Together we can face these hard times
with resolve to build a brighter future.

site to review the list, only.
Chamber members can
submit properties to be list-
ed.
The inventory list is
available on our Website

submit property, please
request an entry form (by

return it to the Chamber
office. You may also submit
up..to two (2) photos to
accompany the listing.

for commercial properties
only - no residential listings
will be accepted. This is a
service extended to

Communications with
Your "Community"
If someone doesn't walk
into your store, then how'
are you . communicating
with your customers?.
Besides a website,
(which we talked about in a
previous article), there are
many other methods avail-
able to accomplish this.
A newsletter is. one way
to share information about
your business, your spe-
cials, career opportunities
and additional information
about your business. This
has been a successful
method for decades. The
downside of this is the cost
to print and deliver, espe-
cially with electronic ver-
sions available.
A more popular way
which is cost effective, vir-
tually immediate once your
message is completed and
utilizes technology on your
side, is an e-mail newslet-
ter/message.
As a business owner, you
should request e-mail
addresses from all your cus-
tomers. This should be
done respectfully and honor
anyone who doesn't wish to
share their' address with
you. There is additional e-
mail etiquette that needs to


be; followed as well:
" Never post everyone's e-
mail address in your mes-
sage. Use the "Bcc" line
for your customer's
addresses or (better yet)
.use a mail-merge feature..
Never ever sell or give-
away your customer
address list to anyone.
Never send 4 message
once you've completed it
until you've let it sit in your
draft folder for at least one
day. This gives you one last
chance to review and edit
your message.
Don't send out messages
with spelling or grammar
errors. This is very unpro-
fessional.
Try' not to add attach-
ments to your message. 'If
you can't include it in the
body or the message, post it
on your web page (you do
have one, don't you?) and
provide a link to the arti-
cle/document there.
Viruses have everyone
afraid of opening something
they're not sure about.
Make sure you're okay
with the message and
you're delivering something
of value before you send;
then hope your recipients

Liberty County race horse




places 1st in Delta Downs


* Liberty County resi-
dents and owners of J &
JW Racing Farm recently
had one of their own
Phillies to place first in a
race at Delta Downs in
Vinton, Louisiana, on May
14th.
Altar of Gold, a two
year old Philly, had i6 to 1
odds against her in a field of
10 horses. In a race the
length of 330 yards, Altar
of Gold won by a half
length.


Altar of Gold comes
from a lineage of winners.
Her father placed third in
the Alabama Futurity in
1997 after having the sec-
ond fastest time to qualify
for this race which only
allowed a field of the ten
fastest-horses. Her grand-
father, Special Task, earned
over $260,000 in his life-
time of racing and her great
grandfather, Special'Effort,
won over a million dollars
in his lifetime of racing.


She has five champions in
her blood line.
To prepare for this race
Altar of Gold was taken to a
professional trainer in
Mobile, Ala. on February
21, 2009. Kenneth Weeks,
her trainer commented of
her about the race that,
"For her first outing, she
did pretty good":.
Altar of Gold is owned
*by J & JW Racing Farm
located in the Sweetwater
Community of Liberty


County where she was also
born.
Owners of J & JW
Racing Farm commented
that they are real proud of
her success having come
from a small town and with
big odds. The race that she
won can be viewed on the
Web at www.deltadowns on
the date of May 14, 2009,
race one. Altar of Gold will
be running in several more
races at Delta Downs in the
coming months.

Dawgs; tied for first place


BY JIM MclNTOSH

BRISTOL, JUNE 7--
By sweeping their second
doubleheader game last
Sunday, the Calhoun
County Horsemen (7-3)
tied; the Liberty County
Dawgs (7-3) for first place
in the Big Bend Baseball
League standings.
The Horsemen, jumped
out to a 4-0 lead in the first
two, innings 'of Game One
on their way to a 5-3 win.
With one out in the first
inning, -,they rattled off 4,
straight hits to go on top, 2-
0. B( th Chad Bailey and:
Ben Furot singled to cen-
terfield. Jeremy Proctor
followed with a ringing dou-
ble to left centerfield that
scored Bailey from second
base and Faurot ended up'
.on third. Josh Mclntosh
beat out, his hot shot off of
the shortstop Jody Parish
and Faurot raced home on
the.play. .
Cale Chafin continued
ppsting Calhoun County
runs in the second frame
after he punched a single to
centerfield . Brandon
Smith followed Chafin .by
taking the first pitch he sawv
and .slamming it into left
field for a double. With two
outs Faurot raked a single
into centerfield that plated
Chafin and Smith apd the
Horsemen had a 4-0 lead.
However, the Dawgs cut
that lead in half with 2 runs
of their own in the third
inning. Cameron O'Neal
led off the inning with a sin-
-gle to left centerfield and he
ended up on second base
. after left fielder Brandon
Smith overran the ball.
With one out Vern Tanner


was issued a walk and the
bases were loaded after.
Jaime Parish reached. on an
infield hit. Jody Parish fol-
lowed suit by scoring
O'Neal.on his infield hit. A
towering sacrifice fly to
centerfield allowed Tanner
Sfto cross the dish but a good
relay by the Horsemen
gunned down Jaime Parrish
tryirig to reach third base.
Calhoun County got one
* of those runs back in the
fourth inning to make it a
5-2 ballgame. Lead off bat-
ter Brandon Smith ripped
a two-out single to right
field and Chad Bailey was
given a free pass to first
base. Ben Faurot reached
on a throwing error by third
baseman Jaime Parish and
Smith scored on the play.
Throwing his second
complete game, the
Horsemen's' Jeremy
Barber (4-1), loaded the
bases in the sixth inning by
walking Richie Smith and
hitting Garet Shuler after
Jody Parish had reached on
a one-out single. Barber
got Robbie Fleck to wave
at a 2-2.pitch for the second
out. Richard Joiner picked
up a RBI after -Barber
walked. him to give the
Dawgs their third run.
However, Barber righted
himself and got Cameron
O'Neal to look at strike
three to end the inning and
give Calhoun County their
sixth win of the season, 5-3.
Of the 28 batters he
faced, Jeremy Barber
allowed only 2 earned runs
off of 5 hits. He struck out
7 Dawgs and surrendered 3
walks.
Leading the .11rsemen
at the plate was Ben Faurot


and Brandon Smith each of
whom went 2-for-4. Faurot
scored a run and collected
3 RBI. Smith had a double
and he scored twice. Chad
Bailey, Cale Chafin and
Josh McIntosh were all 1-'
for-3. McIntosh tallied a
RBI. Both Bailey and
Chafin scored a run.
Liberty County's Boo
Morris was saddled with
the loss. He went the dis-
tance giving up 4 earned
runs off of 8 hits while strik-
ing out 5 of the 31 batters
he faced. Morris issued
only one walk in the game.
Jody Parish was the
Dawgs' offensive leader
going 2-for-3, scored a run
and picked up a RBI.
The Horsemen pulled
the hat trick in Game Tw'o..
They had 3 hits, scored 3
runs in the third inning
despite the fact that they
committed 3 errors in the
contest. However, they
swept the Dawgs by hold-
ing them to only one run for
the 3-1 victory.
With .one out and .after
being hit by a pitch in the
third inning, Cale, Chafin
stole second base. Brandon
Smith walked after receiv-
ing four straight balls. Ben
Faurot delivered a two-out
,double into the corner of
left field that scored Chafin
and left Smith standing on
third base. Jeremy Proctor
raked a single to right field
,that allowed Smith and
Faurot to post runs 2 and 3.
The Horsemen's hurler,
Jason Barber, who had
faced only 4 batters over
the minimum without giv-
ing up a run, gave way to
Tad Scott after 4 innings of
work.'

Behavior
Colossians 4:5
Charles Strite was fuming
at the burnt toast in the facto-
ry lunchroom where he'
worked. He could have
remained frustrated; instead,
he invented the.automatic
toaster.
-Ole Evinrude was more
than a little angry when the ice
cream in his rowboat kept
melting before he could get to
his island picnic spot. He
could have concluded that the
circumstances could never
.change. Instead he invented,
the outboard motor.
Many, if not most, of our
opportunities to share Christ
come packaged in circum-
stances that look like anything
but opportunities. When Paul


wrote, 'Make the most, of every I
opportunity" V.5, he was not
relaxing at a resort! He was
riot even sitting in his pastoral
study. Rather, he was sifting
in a'prison cell with chains
around his legs. Some oppor-
tunity! He, could have con-
cluded that Christ had desert-
ed him. He could have
argued that Christ was treating,
him. unfairly, He could have
found plenty,of people who
would have agreed with him
that God was unjust. Instead,
he wrote that powerful little let-
ter we fondly refer to as the
New Testament book of
Colossians.
What opportunity are you
,facing? How you'respond will
determine whether or not it is
a blessing or an obstacle.


The family of Marlene
Blankenship would like to take
'this opportunity to sdy THANK
YOU from the bottom of our
:hearts for all the prayers,
'cards, phone calls, visits and
-kind words expressed to us
-during Marlene's emergency
illness.
She has a long recovery
ahead qf her, but her doctors
are expecting. a full recovery.
*She is doing exceptionally
'well now.

everyone, but everyone has


done so much.
We want to especially
thank Dr. Semonas and
Melissa Cessna of Calhoun-

their hard work and quick
efforts to help Marlene on May
22nd.
Please continue to pray for
her and know that we so very
much appreciate each and

I grew ' up in
Chattahoochee, Florida,.
before the dam was construct-
ed and Lake Seminole was
formed. Not far from my house
was a. point where the
Chattahoochee and Flint
Rivers met.
The confluence of -these
rivers 'was at times a bit
rough. One of these rivers
. was muddy and the other was
clear. It seemed that these,
r rivers just. could not agree to
f merge - so on they ran for
1 some distance side by side.
s In the same channel, going in.
the same direction, but sepa-
rately. Finally, after some dis-
stance, they began to merge.
f In my years of counseling I
, have met so many married
f couples who reminded me of
1 those rivers. They are in the
t same channel, going in the
; same direction, but separate-
S ly.
If you want a happy mar-
riage, you must not expect it
to happen automatically.
f Varnill happiness must be
* achieved, It must be devel-
oped by much work on the
part of both parties. In order to
;. do this, you must have a cor-
rect view of marriage, a right
attitude toward your spouse,
Sand earnest, prayerful, pur-
t poseful living. The bliss of
hand-holding and door-step
. kisses in courtship'is not a
substantial foundation for the
deeper experiences and crises

ty and the times of want.. .the

experiences of joy and the
experiences of sorrow....the
days of sickness and the days
of health.
What is the correct view of
marriage?? The late Dr. Peter
Marshall said, "Marriage is
not -a federation of two sover-
eign states. It is a union -
domestic, social, spiritual and
physical. It is the fusion of
two hearts, the union of two
lives, the coming together of
two tributaries, which, after
being joined in marriage, will
flow in the same channel, in
the same direction...carrying
the same burdens of responsi-
bility and obligation.' Be sure
you get that!! "The fusion of
two hearts, the union of two
lives."
Jesus said, "...A man shall
leave his father, and mother
and be joined to his wife and
the two shall become one."
Will you be or are you real-
ly happy in marriage? I'm
sure you want to be. I'm.sure
God wants you to be. Here is
a "Beatitude for marriage cou-
pies,"; written by . Gordon
Schroeder:
"Blessed are the husband
. and wife who humbly dedicate
their lives and their home to
Christ and who practice the
teachings in the home by
being unselfish, loyal and lov-
ing."
Let me -say to you, make
God a partner to your mar-
riage and achieve the highest,
of all human happiness!!

Calhoun-Liberty Hospital administrator discusses...

Plastic and panic at the pump


BY RON GILLIARD
Hospital Administrator


Now what could that
title possibly have to do
with this hospital! Bear
with me and I'll try to tell
you.
I usually
have a hard
time when I
try to use my
credit (or
now some-
times debit)
card at the n,, i_..


gas pump at

stations" or


7-11 type convenience
stores.
I never seem to get it
turned the right way the
first time. It's either the
wrong side or upside down.
I often have to go in to have


the cashier make it work.
Beth loves to laugh at me
when she sees me going in,
knowing I've lost the battle
of the "plastic at the pump"
once again. (I should make
her pump it in this day of
liberated ladies, but that's
another story.)
I not only have this
problem at the gas pumps,
usually when I am in a real
big hurry, but also at most
grocery and department
stores as well. You can
hardly go anywhere and
not have to "do it yourself"
for the purchase of most
items today. I even
checked myself out at Wal-
Mart recently, with some
help!
Would you believe a fel-.
low back in 1961, the year
this hospital opened, would


think you would be able to
walk up to a wall in a build-
ing, insert a piece of plastic
and get money out of that
wall! I'm speaking of our
good old AT]Iys of course.
They are now everywhere.
Again, I have my problems
with them. Now what was
my code? Is this a debit
card? No, I think it's just a
credit card. How much is
the fee?
When I was a teenager
in the early 1960s, my
Father ran a true "service
station." It's hard to find
stations now that will pump
your gas, check your oil,
check your tires, and even
clean ' your windows.
Daddy did all of that and
gladly. (The local

The County Record, JUNE 10, 2009, Page.14


I am writing this week
from the deck of a rented
beach house in Virginia, lis-
tening to the waves come in
accompanied by the off key
karaoke from one floor up.
My wife is the youngest
of ten kids. They try to get
together somewhere once a
year with spouses and
youngins in tow. These
gatherings sometimes are
centered around weddings;
such was the case in 2006
when her family and mine
gathered in Paris for my
middle son's wedding. (I'm
not putting on airs, it was
Paris, Tennessee.)' No wed-
ding this year, the location
was suggested and perfectly
arranged by my niece,
Mary Ann. She .lives here,
as does her Mom and
Master Chief Ret., Dad.
My oldest son, Jacob, is
also stationed here in the
Navy, on the aircraft carri-
er USS George H. W.
Bush.,
If you have not had the
pleasure yet, take the time
to read No Country for Old
Men by Cormac McCarthy.
Better yet, see the movie
then read the book to fill in'
the gaps. Be warned, it can
be graphic. The story is a
vehicle to. convey, as
McCarthy often does in his
bobks, that life is full of
choices, and those choices
always add up to put you
where you are right now.
Listening to the crash of
the waves in the moonlight,
I find myself' trying to
reflect back on the choices
made and how they got me
to, well, here.
I think mostly it was
Jacob's choice in 4th grade
that he would join the Navy
and be on a submarine. I
know that is a tender age to


make a career choice, but
he never wavered till it was
time to re-up and got him-
self off the sub and on a car-
rier. Something about a
couple of six months tours
under water sleeping next
to a torpedo will give you
"been there, done that"
syndrome.
I think I have narrowed
down the moment in our
past that planted the seed
for Jacob to crave serving
on a submarine. I take you
back to 1983, one month
before he was born.
Nancy and I got married
young, right out of high
school, in 1981. We bought
a 1962 model, ten by sev-
enty two Hommett mobile
home. We borrowed a log
truck from Jimmy Yon and
wheels off a Willis Jeep
from Robert Woods and,
with my Dad's help, moved
it in and set it up ourselves.
No heat, no a/c. I'm sure
most of you know what I
mean about having to "drip
the spigots" when it is
gonna freeze. We had to
drip the faucets inside the
house. We was livin' on.luv.'
As things progressed,
choices we made had us
expecting our first child,
due in late June. As much a
necessity as a hobby, we,
had a pretty good vegetable
garden. One sunny day,
when Nancy was about
eight Months along, we
were out walking in the gar-
den, checking on progress,
doing a little weeding and
some harvesting till the
skeeders ran us back in the
house. Nancy was doing
her gardening bare footed,
as she done most, every-
thing along about this time
in her pregnancy. Being
eight months pregnant


Hospital cont'd


McDougald station is a
moderti day exception!)
My first job was actually
sweeping out cars with a lit-
tle whisk broom at that sta-
tion. (For any young .folks
reading this article, and
finding the whole concept
hard to believe, stop by and
I'll explain what a whisk
broom is.) I would usually
get a quarter for each car.
It was sometimes tough
with the now outdated floor
boards that were recessed
and hard to sweep the dirt.
out,- but I digress.
At his station, Daddy
would gladly take your cash'
at the car, make change if
required, or even put it
"down on your account"
and you could come back
on Saturday and settle iip.
I remember he had one of
those money changers he
wore on his belt with nick-
els, dimes, and quarters in
it. I don't think Daddy
would've cared much for
credit cards, more less hav-,
ing you "run" one through
his gas pump!
He would even bring
you a good old ice cold
Coke if requested -' just
anything to make his cus-'
tomers happy. Sometimes it
would be sweet little ,old
ladies that- really appreciat-
ed this extra touch of serv-
ice. (I loved those Cokes
with peanuts in the glass
.bottle, but again, I digress!)
Besides, if you pumped
your own gas and did the
windows, after running the
plastic through the pump,
then he couldn't talk to you
and find out how your fam-
ily was doing and if there
was anything else he could
do, to help you. He had a
genuine, concern for all of
his customers. I now know
why so many of the same
people always came back to
Daddy's station when there
were several others in our
home town.
I relate my fear of "plas-
tic and panic at the pump"
and Daddy's old service
station to Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital today. I don't
think you'll receive an
impersonal approach at this
hospital. If you do, I need
and want to hear about it.
We've devoted a lot of
effort to assuring your visit
or stay with us, for whatev-
er the reason, will be one
where you will be treated in


a courteous, compassionate
and professional 'mrianier.
We're receiving lots of com-
pliments on that care and
we will continue to work
hard on even improving it.
I'm very proud of our staff.
Now we will slip up once
in .awhile. We're not per-
fect and don't claim to be.
But I tell each new employ-
ee my expectations of them
in regards to the way we
treat our patients.
I suspect even my
Daddy may have, had a
time or two where even, his
best customers were not
pleased with the way he
actually cleaned their wind-,
shield. But if so and he was
:aware it, he worked even
harder the next time to
make them happy.
We emphasize to our
staff that you, as patients
(our customers) don't really
even want to be here.
Perhaps you are afraid of
the results of a potentially
negative diagnostic test, or
just the inconvenience of
being in a hospital bed
rather than your own bed at
home. You probably don't
feel well to begin with or
you wouldn't be using us.
And of course,' just like in
Daddy's case, there are
alternatives.
Your perception is very
important to us - it IS our
reality! We may think we
did a great job and provided
good service but if you don't
think so, then we did not. I
again relate it back to
Daddy's service station. I
can remember him telling
me, "Do a good job sweep-
ing out that car and they'll
come back to have it done
again." Like most things
my Father told me, he was
right.

I'll probably always
pump my own gas in the
future, IF I can figure how
out to make the plastic
work. However, I never
want this hospital to lose
that personal touch. We've
made a remarkable turn-
around and are providing a
high level of courteous and
compassionate care. I
think my Daddy would be
proud.
Give me a call if I can
help you at the pump with
your plastic or about any-
thing at the hospital at 674,
5411, ext 206.


makes it hard for someone
to wash garden dirt off
one's feet, so, we made the
choice for me to sit in the
bath tub, washing her legs
from the knees down, while
she showered. (Good hus-
bands do these sorta
things.) Looking back now,
the fact that it was almost
dark outside worked to my
favor.
This foot cleaning opera-
tion was working great, I'm
happily scrubbing toe nails,
she is washing, her hair, if
memory serves, we were
trying to decide, which
Hamburger Helper to
make for supper after-
wards. Then, . without
warning, the tub, with us
riding along, fell thru the
floor, down to the ground,
and followed by the sur-
prise attack of spewing bro-
ken water pipes. One
moment I am debating
cheesy or extra cheesy, the
next I am holding my open
hands out in front' of me,
shielding my eyes from two
streams of water, hoping
my neighbors ain't grillin'
out this evening. (And that
camera phones and you-
tube has not yet been
invented!)
My next thought was for
my pregnant wife, who had
'already leaped four feet
back to the safety of ground
level and a towel!!!
Apparently, modesty
enhances human strength.
So, I feel this trip, in a
sinking vessel surrounded
by water, instilled in my
unborn child the desire to
become a Navy sub-
mariner. Had we chose not
to work in the garden that
-day, or to just use a water
hose to wash her feet and I
had made whatever
Hamburger Helper I want-
ed while she took her own
shower, or a dozen other
choices that. lead us to that
tub at the same time, I
might not be on this deck
right now .writing for you,
and Jacob' w wouldn't be
upstairs murdering "More
Than a Feeling".'
Make your choices wise-
ly, the important ones and
the ones on the fly, espe-
cially the ones on the fly.
They may decide your chil-
dren's careers.
Qh, and buy your wife a
long handle brush to keep
in the tub.
PS. My dad, how should
I put this, dislikes the
Bushes, strongly. He was
not happy when Jake got
assigned to the Bush carri-
er. I told him not to worry,
next he is going'to help con-
struct the Clinton frigate.

Never A Dull Moment

by J.K. Newsome


Support Our Marines, Inc.
The event was not with-
out a couple of surprises for
Lt. Col. Edwards. Vallono
presented him with a
Jefferson Award she
received in honor of her
efforts to support primarily
front line and infantry
Marines serving in the
most austere of locations."
"Considering what, our
Marines and their families
endure and sacrifice, I felt
guilty accepting an award
for outstanding public serv-


ice," Villano stated. "I have
never met a finer group of
Marines than the Col.'s
ETT Marines and nothing
exemplifies 'Outstanding
Public Service' better than
Lt. Col. Edwards, his fami-
ly and his Marines." /
. Ty's team also had a gift
for him: the American flag
flying over their base the
day the , team was
ambushed and he was
wounded. The flag was
framed, along with a team,
picture- and Lt. Col.


Edwards' medals.
Villano says, after the
flag presentation, Lt. Col.
Edwards made a short
speech. "There was a huge
pause and silence where no
one .moved a muscle,"
Villano i explains. "The
room, being full of Marines
and sailors, just stood there
uinfil the Colonel finally
realized they were all wait-
ing for him to say, 'As you
were.' It was one of the fun-
niest things I have ever
seen!"

Sugar glider from down under


finds home in the panhandle

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor

There's a new guy in
town and he's turning a few
heads.
Known as a sugar glider,
the cutie dubbed "Petri"
looks like a cross between a
hamster, a squirrel, and a
skunk.
Tamarrah Rasmussen,; a
/ dispatcher at the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Office,
brought this,. little, fellow
S "home from a recent trip to
" Macon, Georgia. A friend
4 who owns an exotic pet
store found the sugar glider
on a trip to Australia.
"They are often poached
for their fur and his mom
had gotten killed,"
Rasmussen explains.
At three months old and
four inches in length, little
Petri isn't expected to get
.any bigger. Accustomed to
riding in his mom's pouch,
S. Petri has found a safe haven
in Rasmussen's pocket. "I
., '"have a hoodie I wear around
the house and he loves to
sleep in the pocket," she
remarks.
As for food, the sugar
gliders favor fruit. "But they
... are carnivores - they eat
. mealworms, mice and
bugs," Rasmussen notes.
d And when they want to
, .get your attention, these
tiny creatut'es do it in the
most unexpected way. Says
Tamarrah, pictured at left
with her new pet, "He
barks!"
