CRIME


Pills,

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
A routine traffic stop
Thursday night led to the
discovery of methadone
pills and a large amount of
cash.
According to the
Blountstown Police
Department, Officer
Patrick Crawford and
Deputy Eddie Dalton of the
Calhoun County Sheriff's
Office were monitoring traf-
fic on Hwy. 20 East when
they spotted a vehicle with
a taillight out. The pair
pulled the vehicle and
spoke with the driver, Ryan
Blake Lindsey, who was
reportedly sweating pro-
fusely with the air condi-
tioner on full blast, breath-
ing heavily, and extremely
nervous.
When questioned,
Lindsey said he wasn't
nervous, he just wanted to
get to Gainesville because
his grandmother was sick.
Lindsey denied having any-
thing illegal in the vehicle,
but a patdown search for
officer safety revealed a pill
bottle in his'shorts pocket.
The label had Lindsey's
name on it, but no other
information. Lindsey stat-
ed, "They're just my antibi-
otics."
Due to the pill bottle
being unlabeled and
Lindsey's nervous
demeanor, Ofc. Crawford
requested permission to
search the vehicle. Lindsey
denied the request and
Dep. Dalton advised he
would have his narcotics K-
9. walk around the vehicle.
Before the dog was
deployed, Lindsey changed
his mind and gave consent
to a search.
Ofc. Timothy Partridge
arrived on the scene to
assist and Lindsey asked
permission to retrieve his
money from the vehicle.
Officers escorted him and
he removed $2100 from the
center console. During the
search, another pill bottle
was discovered with
Lindsey's name on it for
Aprazolam. However, the'

SR 71 Greenway crossing


IBoYS HAVE A BLAST


AT TECHNOLOGY CAMP
Local middle school
boys had a blast June 24-
26 at the Technology Camp
sponsored by the Calhoun
County Sheriffs Office and
the Calhoun County Health
Department's Power of
Wisdom (POW) program.
The boys enjoyed a GPS
scavenger hunt, making.
and launching rockets, and
playing in video game tour-
naments. The program
focused on developing
skills in critical thinking,
problem-solving, and team
building, making the best
choices and leadership.


The Blountstown Greenway Trail crossing oh Hwy. 71 North in front of the M & B Train
Park is much safer thanks to some.recent improvements. City of Blountstdwn officials
recently asked the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to look at several Ways to
improve trail crossing visibility. The completed project, with more bright yellow markers, is
the finished result of the request. City Manager James Woods says, 'The City wants to
thank FDOT for the fast response at implementing the solutions.'

Sara Jackson retires


from Sheriff's Office

Sara Jackson of the Calhoun County Sheriff's Office began
a new chapter in her life on June 30 by entering retirement.
Sara worked as a Correctional Officer in the Jail from 1996
until her retirement last week. In addition, Sara worked with
the Florida Department of Corrections.
In recognition of her valued service here at the CCSO, Sara
was presented with a golf wrist watch and a plaque com-
memorating her 13 years of service. Additionally, Sara's co-
workers presented her with a rod and reel, tackle box with
tackle and a folding chair so that she may enjoy many days
of leisure.
We wish the best for Sara, and we want to extend a great
thank you for the sacrifices that she made over the years to
be in public service. Sara is pictured above being congratu-
lated by Sheriff David Tatum.

Teens nabbed after
stealing liquor

Two Calhoun County
teens were arrested for
petit theft -Sunday--night-
after' allegedly stealing four
bottles of Vodka from a
local liquor store. '
According to the
Calhoun County Sheriff's
Office, Deputy Caleb
Tolbert was working a call
at Redd Hill Mobile Home
Park on Hwy 69 North just
before 10 p.m. where a
juverile was accused of
strike -g her grandmother.
Around the same time, a
call came out that a theft
had occurred at ,Mozelle's
Liquors. As' Dep. Tolbert
was leaving the first call, he
overheard a conversation
between juveniles that
some friends in another
trailer at the park had left
to get some Vodka.
A vehicle fitting the
description of. the car
involved -in the theft was
later found, at a mobile
home in the park. Two
teenage boys and a' female
were questioned. The girl
advised she stopped for
directions when the boys
came in the store, took the
liquor and ran out. The
boys were charged With
petit theft and another teen
in the home was arrested

Marijuana -
in the front floor.
Two passengers were
asked to step out of the
vehicle and a large gallon
size bag of marijuana was
retrieved from the passen-
ger side floor. The teen then
stated the marijuana was
his and his friends had' no
knowledge of it. The boy
also allegedly said he was
taking the pot to.a guy at
'Mexico Beach to sell for
$1300. The marijuana
weighed in at 450 grams.
The teen was charged
with possession of a con-
trolled substance, mord
than 20 grams of marijua-
na, and possession of a con-
trolled substance with
intent to distribute.
Back at the police sta-
tion, the boy changed his
story during his sworn
statement' and said the
marijuana was his, but he
wasn't going to sell the
drugs. He was turned over
to the Department of
Juvenile Justice.
Ofc. Partridge was

Man, correctional
officer are arrested

A: woman who-described
i herself as an 18 year veter-
an of the Department of
Corrections was arrested
Sunday night for 'giving
false information to a law
enforcement officer during
an investigation into a bat-
tery complaint.
According. to .the
Blountstown Police
Department, Ofc. Timothy
Partridge and Officer
Warren Tanner responded
to a Palm Street home
around 8:40 p.m. At the

before fleeing on foot.' An
estimated 20 to 30 people
were on' the property and
each were interviewed with
no one giving a response.
. While Howell was giving a
sworn statement,. Jones
'drove, up and.' stated she
witnessed the entire inci-
dent and Comer was the


one hit in the face' by
Howell who then struck
Taylor, busting her mouth.
Jones told the officers she
was a correctional officer
'and would .give a sworn
written statement to, that
fact because Comer was
her nephew and didn't need
to go to jail for something
he didn't do..
Comer met the officers
at the police station and
gave a sworn statement
that Howell. came to the
residence and slapped him
in the face.
Taylor was tracked down
at Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital where she was
being treated for the
injuries to her mouth.
Taylor stated that Howell
did not hit Comer. She
backed up Howell's
account, stating that Comer
struck Howell, knocking
her to the 'ground, then hit
her in. the mouth, causing
her injuries. Ofc. Partridge
observed large red marks
all over Taylor's neck and
she said Comer had
grabbed her around the
neck.

Some years ago a lot of noise was fnade' about the.
Democratic Watergate,r which was the national Democratic
headquarters. It had been broken intoby some Nixon sup-.-
porters in order to plant listening, devices to determine the
plans of the-Democrats for the upcoming election. -
This was not a new situation. In II Kings chapter 6, there
is 9 story of a .king of Syria dhd an intelligence problem.
Someone was leaking information to the king of,lIsrael.
Elisha was the spy, planted by God.,
Biblically speaking, the Watergate is nothing, new. lt'is
mentioned in-the Bible and. it was one Of the entrances, into
the old city of Jerusalem. ..
Jerusalem was a city of famous gates. There was thd
Sheep Gate Salvation and sacrifice. There, was the :Fish
Gate witnessing and soul-Winning, used by all,'not just by
Jews. There was the Old Gate :-.Return to the old 'paths,
"!..wherein is the good way;. there was the Valley Gate humil-
ity; There was the Refuse Gate denoting confession and
cleansing; the Fountain Gate '- Filling of the Spirit; the Horse
Gate Service as a Soldier of Jesus Christ; The East Gate -
Christ's return;, the Miphkad. Gate --the Judgment Seat. of
Christ The word means REVIEW; The Prison Gate protec-
tion and preservation; The Ephraim.Gate Fruitfulness.
Note that all the above gates needed repairs when
Nehemiah came to rebuild the city of Jerusalem. The Water
Gate alone needed no repairs. The Water Gate the word of
God, speaking of perfection. The Water Gate was a symbol
'of God's Word. It,was the place for the reading of God's
SWord. Water Gate was the Place of assembly. Water Gate
was the place of preaching.
We all need to pass through the Water Gate of God's Word
to stay clean and experience renewal

FSA now offering low interest loans


for farm storage & handling facilities


The 2008 Farm Bill
reauthorized the Farm
:Service Agency's (FSA)
Farm Storage Facility Loan
Program (FSFL). The
program provides low-
interest financing for pro-
ducers to build or upgrade
farm storage and handling
',.facilities.
To expedite the FSFL
. approval process, produc-
*ers planning to submit an
FSFL application to FSA,
may request an environ-


mental evaluation of their
proposed project at their.
county FSA office.
To comply with the pro-
visions of the National
Environmental Policy Act
(NEPA), FSA must evalu-
ate the potential impacts
the proposed structure
could have on the environ-
ment for FSFL applica-
tions. An FSA-850 form
must be completed for each
FSFL application before
the application can be


approved.
Producers requesting an
environmental compliance
determination are advised
that the FSFL application
must be submitted and
approved before site prepa-
ration and construction can
begin on the facility.
Applicants will be
required to identify the:
type of structure they
wish to construct
proposed site by
marking the location on an


aerial photo.
County Offices will not
accept requests to complete
FSA-850 via telephone. If
a producer is unable to visit'
the office, the request must
be submitted in writing and
include the necessary infor-
mation to complete FSA-
850.
Additional information
about initiating a Farm
Storage Facility Loan is
available at FSA county
offices.

Waiting
Philipplans 3:20
There is so fimuch more to our lives than just earthly pur-
suits. Spiritual mattersare' so much more important and of
eternal significance. The issue is not how much money or
goods we have,gathered, but howmany souls we-have influ-
enced for our wonderful Lbrd.
,. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus reminded His disciples
that we are to 'seek first His kingdom and His righteousness;
and all.these things shall be added' Matthew 6:33. The
.higher and brighter realm of the spiritual is to take priority
over whatever attention this world may command. Our eyes
are to focus primarily upon His Kingdom.
We must never allow the things of this world to become
anything more than creature comforts to enable us to serve
,Christ. We must never allow our possessions to possess us.
As stewards, we must affirm that all we have ultimately
belongs to God and is expendable for His purpose.
Jim Elliot, the famous missionary martyr, said it well
when he declared, "He is no fool who gives what he cannot
keep to gain what he cannot lose.'
When Jesus comes to receive us, the church, we will
know the joy of bodily transformation from weak and decay-
ing body to a glorified body (verse. 21). We will be finally
free of the distractions of this old world.

The Blountstown Greenway, fondly referred to by locals as "the trail', is being widely used year round. Even with the
hot temperatures, bicyclists, walkers, and runners are taking advantage of this paved path that leads from the
Apalachicola River landing to Sam Atkins Park. Above, a group of 4-Hers bike past the old M & B Train and Depot.
