TEA PARTY WAGON To



TOUR CALHOUN COUNTY


BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
Folks fed up with the direction our country is
headed are speaking out across the nation with "tea
party" rallies. Here in Calhoun County, local activists
are taking the tea party to the people.
The Calhoun County tea party group was formed
around the coffee table 'at Connie's Kitchen in down-
town Blountstown after the morning gathering con-
versations kept turning to politics. The disgruntled
gatherers decided to do more than talk and they are
now working to send a message to Washington.
"A significant number are changing parties in
protest," says Logan Barbee. "They are leaving the
democratic party because they no longer feel they are
being represented by that party. They're not saying
they're going to the Republican party, they are just
changing affiliation."
One longtime Democrat who recently switched is
76-year-old J.O. Stone who has been with the party
since he was old enough to vote and says his family
has been Democrat for over 100 years. "I didn't leave
the Democratic party, it left me," he remarked at the
coffee table gathering Monday. "I don't want to be a
part of anything that takes us to socialism."
Tea partiers began a party switching drive


September 1 and it will continue through September
11. They remind voters who would like to cast ballots
for local Democrats in future elections that they can
always change back in time to vote (at least 30 days
prior) and the process is extremely quick and simple.
"By retaining that [Democratic party] card, we're
endorsing' what's happening," says Logan Barbee.
"We're not endorsing any other party, we're just dis-
satisfied. We feel like our views are not being repre-
sented by our present representatives."
The tea partiers are also taking their campaign on
the road. A tea party wagon with mailboxes for letters
to Congressman Boyd and Senator Nelson will be
attached to the wagon along with a bin for tea bags
and a message board for voters to sign and express
their sentiments. The wagon will tour the county, but
folks in every community - Altha, Clarksville, Frink,
Abe Springs, Kinard, Scotts Ferry, etc. - are needed
to host it. If you'd like the wagon to spend a few days
in your area and you'd be willing to set it up on your
property to provide a drop off spot for letters and tea
bags, please contact Logan Barbee at 447-0131 (day)
or 762-1989 (evenings only).
"We're a small county, but we can be bigger than
we are," says Barbee. "Sign the message board and,
if you have a lot to say, put it in a letter and we'll be
happy to send it to Washington as part of the protest."

News Editor
A Blountstown woman
is behind bars accused of
threatening to kill her hus-
band with a shotgun.
Rhonda Lisa Maston
Blocker, 47, has been
charged with aggravated

Blocker, 53, called author-
ities around 8:30 p.m. last
Wednesday night from a
neighbor's hodse and

Futch approached the

Blocker just inside the
door as he peered through
the glass. She opened the
door and when Inv. Futch
asked where the gun was,.
she pointed to a pellet gun
on a table and indicated
she used it to shoot cats.
He asked again about the
shotgun and she directed
him to the master bed-
room where the gun was

was seized for safety rea-

Michael Blocker told
Inv. Futch they had been

when they returned home,
Lisa went to lay down in

the living room. Later, he
said she came in the living

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
The efforts of three
law enforcement age-
nies are paying off as a
man suspected of being
involved with an ATV
theft ring has been
arrested.

Debate continues over health care reform




Reader says public option is needed


:Letter to the Editor:
There are a lot of voices
discussing what should be
done about health care in
this country. One voice
says the system is fine as it
is. Another says some
minor changes are needed
and the third says that
major changes are needed.
I,,agree with the latter.
Americans pay twice
what other leading coun-
tries pay for health care but
two independent health
organization, the WHO and
the Dartmouth Atlas of
Health Care, say we are
not getting full value for our
(dollars paid; The WHO
ranks the US #37 in the
quality of health care out-
comes. Interestingly, Cuba
is ranked 39th. The
Dartmouth study finds
wide spread disparity in the
quality of health care deliv-
ered within the US. I think
our US doctors and nurses
'do terrific work, so what is
the problem?
For-profit health insur-
ance companies distribute
health care in the US.
Being for-profit, their main
focus is on maximizing prof-
its to the companies share-
holders. Each quarter,
Wall Street analysts deter-
mine the size of profits the
companies should be
obtaining. When compa-
nies exceed the projections,
the company shares
;increase in value. While
This is great for sharehold-
ers and company execu-
'tives, it isn't too great for
policy holders who depend
upon the companies for
their health care.
Companies are always
looking for ways to increase
profits and they come at
the expense of policy hold-
ers.

Potter, the 15 year Cigna

JASON D.


health insurance company
executive who turned whis-
tle blower and testified
before Congress, the com-
panies keep coming up
with new ways to prevent
policy holders from getting
the care they need and
have paid for. Employing
an army of company
bureaucrats, they comb
patient medical records
looking for ways to deny
care to policyholders.
Abuses include denying
care for pre-existing condi-
tions, "red flagging" and
rescission - the outright
dumping of policy holders
when it looks like their care
will become costly.
Congress found that the
major for-profit insurance
companies had rescinded
the policies of approximate-
ly 20,000 people over a five
year period of time.
Currently, 17% of the
US ' Gross Domestic
Product is spent on health
care and is projected to
increase to 40% by 2050 if
the current cost trend
holds. The ten largest
health insurance compa-
nies made $13 billion in
profits in 2007 and they
certainly will not give up
their money maker without
a serious fight. And that
fight is what we have been
witnessing for the last few
months. In this war for
insurance company profits,
there is no tactic that is
considered too unseemly to
be used including the bald
face lie that the govern-
ment is out to kill granny.
To help pay for health
care reform, Congress is
considering eliminating the
so called Medicare
Advantage program. This
costly program pays insur-
ance, companies 135% of
the Medicare reimburse-
inent rate so they can pro-

care to attract additional
customers. In effect,
advantage customers are
getting more than what
regular Medicare benefici-
aries receive. With 46 mil-
lion uninsured in this coun-
try and an estimated
18,000 people dying pre-
maturely each year
because of the lack of good
health care, this Medicare
Advantage money can be
put to better use helping
.the people who have no
health care insurance.
Of all the health reform
measures currently being
proposed by Congress, the
one that gives the health
insurers nightmares is the
public option. The public
option would give US citi-
zens another choice 'in the
health insurance market
place. Because the over-
head cost of the public
option would be closer to
the 3% Medicare rate
instead of the 10-30 per-
cent rate of the for-profit
insurers, the public optioir
should save policy holders
money and the basic serv-
ices would be the same as
the private insurers.
President Obama has


already said that the public
option would have to be
self-supporting and could
not use government money
to supplement their cost of
operations. Yet, this is the
provision that most threat-
ens them and the one they
are fighting most vigorous-
ly. How can they say on
one hand that- their prod-
ucts provide the best in
quality and affordability
and on the other hand be
afraid of competition that
will be on a level playing
field? To make their prod-
ucts more attractive they
could add some benefits
such as vision and dental
care. To make their servic-
es more affordable, they
also could cut their over-
head rates.
One tactic the health
. insurers use to attack the
public option is to claim
that it is socialized medi-
cine. Medicare is certainly
a socialized health insur-
ance benefit and very few
seniors would willingly give
it up. The US is not con-
templating the kind of
socialized medicine prac-
ticed in Canada and in
European countries. It will
be an American solution


which gives citizens, real
choices.
Another tactic is that
illegals will be covered
under the public option and
that abortions will be tax
payer funded. Congress is
not going to cover illegals or
abortions as these are very
unpopular and including
them would be political sui-
cide.
And then the insurance
companies say that taxes
will increase to pay for the
program. The president
has said that there will be
no tax increases on families
making less that $250,000
per year. Those making
above that would have
their taxes raised probably
back to the' Clinton rate.
Some of the people without
health insurance now can
afford it but choose to go
without but most are work-
ing families struggling to.
survive in a very changed
work force. The service
jobs, which we have a lot
of, don't pay like the manu-
facturing jobs which we
have fewer and fewer of
each year.
The real reason insur-
ance interests don't want
the public option is that the


companies have had the
market place all to them-
selves for 60 years. They
don't want competition.out-
side "the club" as this is a
serious threat to their prof-
it making machine. The
only way to keep private
insurers actually competi-
tive in the market place is
to have the public option
and this is why I am for it
and I am not alone. Eighty
percent of the public in a
recent national AARP poll
on health care reform agree
that it should be provided
as,an option. Remember, it
is just an option, one you
can choose or not based
upon your own preferences
and circumstances.
Why are so many peo-
ple in favor of having a
public option? I guess they
are like me, I believe in
hoping for the best but
preparing for the worst.
You never know when your
circumstances, and those of
your family members, just
might change and you will
be happy knowing that the
public option is available to
you.

Open letter from Sky developer at...




Critical financial point


Dear Friends of SKY:
Sky, Florida has reached
a critical financial point in
its historical path toward
creating a legacy communi-
ty. The team of White
Starr, DPZ, and countless
others have created an ele-
gart design to stand as a
model environmental com-
munity. The current econo-
my, however, has led the
founders of Sky to re-focus
their energies on weather-
ing the storm and seeking
long term financial commit-
ment to realize the vision.
Just as Thomas Edison
needed the financial
involvement of bankers at
J. P Morgan to develop the
incandescent lighting
industry which changed our
world, Sky needs additional
financial resources to real-
ize the vision.
The following is an
excerpt from Julie Sanford,
President of White Starr,
written to a colleague
describing SKY and the
vision for the Sky Institute
and Sky Culinary Institute:
"In taking the current
recession to heart -- that
now is not the time for mar-
keting luxury vacation
properties -- and in trying
to create more affordable
designs that are still sus-
tainable, functional and
above all, beautiful, we've
evolved the market village
concept to something more
directly tied to our,
Southern heritage and
much more authentic.

Instead of masonry, like
we used at Rosemary or
Alys, Sky's buildings are
evolving into light-filled,
airy, modern barn and
farmhouse structures.
When we show people the
drawings of the solar loft,
which is a very light, clean,
open house but with clear
antecedents to the barn,
people smile! They love the
look and the feeling that

Somehow, largely through the Grace of
God, devoted loyalty, and the vast pride on
the part of many people, The County
Record has never missed an issue.


they get from these simple,
white dwellings. There is
something so endearing
about these forms -- much
like the early Seaside cot-'
tages, -- that reaches deep
inside of us. Maybe we '
don't have personal memo-
ries of spending time on a
farm -- althoughI do so I
know why I respond so pos-
itively -- but the forms
themselves seem to elicit a
visceral, almost emotional
response. But that we've
made them white elevates
the barn form into a mod-
ern expression, but at the
same time, reminding us
that the past is present.
The second part of this
unexpected evolution was
Seaside Pienza's strong
interest in locally grown
garden to table food. We'
always had the 154 acres
set aside for organic farm-
ing and early on, we talked
about the Slow Movement
but until the idea of food
was brought to the fore-
front, we weren't so focused
on the end result of the
organic farm -- which is the
enjoyment and celebration
of food -- as we were the
mechanics of food produc-
tion. It has dramatically
changed the way we
approach the amenities we
want to offer, the way we
are presenting Sky in col-
lateral materials and really,
in our holistic thinking
about "What is Sky?"
There is no one whom
we've spoken to who does-
n't love the idea of a culi-
nary institute at Sky and
sees Sky as a food lover's
destination. We want to
explore new ways of culti-
vation -- and we want Sky
to be a place that explodes
with plant life -- flowers,
vegetables, great shade
trees. Maybe it's a place
where we research and
archive heirloom seeds.
Maybe we produce a series
of Sky seasonal cookbooks,
and we'll attract folks who
want to produce artisan
cheeses or breads, salsa,
honey, jams, and other del-
icacies.
What continues to
amaze us is that despite all
that has gone on in the last
year -- including Florida
real estate -- the'interest on
our web. site has never
diminished. Our marketers
say that the people who are
attracted to Sky -- the
Cultural Creatives -- are a
different breed. They are
conscientious and were
interested in the environ-.
ment long ago but in their
personal lives, they're


financial conservatives.
These are not people who
were flipping houses or-
leveraging with sub-prime
loans. They do not buy and
sell houses. And you can
tell from the .'eb -ite ithp
they are people x ho afe
very deliberate, knowl-
edge-intensive buyers.
Some of these people have
contacted us multiple times
because they really are
interested in making Sky
their home.
In fact, that's the other
thing that really amazes us
-- almost everyone who has
worked on this project in
some fashion seems to want
to buy at Sky. Whether
they will live there full-time
or not, who knows? But
people are looking for .a
community where they can
eventually live this relaxed,
yet responsible lifestyle.
And it is the lifestyle that


they're seeking. These are
people who want to make
an occasion of the evening
meal -- eaten outside on an
old wooden table. They
want to garden together.
I think that Sky's ulti-
mate appeals that it ,gts
y3ou qbck t youarroot pt
although it's simple, it's not
unsophisticated."

The vision of Sky is
clear.
Please consider sharing
this story with others that
share the vision for Sky.
Together we can profound-
ly change how we view,
define, and live in thought-
ful community. If we fail, so
will an opportunity to pro-
foundly preserve the deli-
cate fabric of our landscape
in Florida.

Chief Glenn Kimbrel,
Inv. Timothy Partridge,
Ofc. Scotty Norris, Sgt.
Darryl Temple, and CCSO
Dep. Nick Keller respond-
ed to Simmons' home at
16245 SE Pear Street
where the attack had
occurred. Over at Bay
Medical, a Panama City
police officer made contact
with Simmons who was in
stable condition. She gave a
taped statement* and told
the officer she arrived at
her home that morning,
entered through the back
door, and found Comer
inside where he had been
damaging her property. She
said Comer was very agitat-
ed and began punching,
dragging, and beating her
into her bedroom. During
the struggle, . Simmons
reached for a piece of glass
from a mirror Comer
allegedly smashed before
she arrived. She then broke
free and ran outside toward
her mother's house, still
clutching the piece of glass.
Comer reportedly caught


her in the
yard and
began
attacking
her again, at
which point
she started
striking him
in the head BLLY COMER
with the
piece of
mirror. Comer, who was
bleeding, then fled. the
scene and Simmons ran to
her mother's house with the
glass still in her hand. As
her mother called 911,
Simmons collapsed.
Investigators found the bro-
ken mirror piece at the
scene where she fell.
Evidence at Simmons'
home indicated her front
door had been kicked in
with great force as there
was a visible shoe print on
the door and parts of the
frame were found eight feet
away.

Comer was treated at
the hospital, then booked
into the Calhoun County
Jail where he remained at
press time.

Kylie Turner celebrates

6th birthday in Atlanta
Kylie's 6th birthday was so great. Her parents, Shelby
and Dena Turner, of Jacksonville, surprised her with a day
trip to Atlanta to go to the Georgia Aquarium. It was her first
time orn an airplane, and to the aquarium. Kylie's favorite
sights at the aquarium were the whale shark, the manta ray,
the black tip shark, the pink tropical fish, the asian otters,
the beluga whale, and the weedy and leafy seahorses. She
also got to see her first 3D movie which included special
effects of water being rained down on her. Needless to say,
she wasn't shy about telling everyone that it was her birth-
day. This worked out in her favor when the Delta pilot on
the flight to Atlanta wished her a happy birthday on the inter-
com prior to taking off, and the pilot on the the flight back let
her sit in the cockpit and wear his pilot's hat! Kylie is the
granddaughter of Robert and Sharon Turner of Bristol.
Happy birthday, Kylie!
Love, Meme & Papa


Exhibit at the library will

showcase talented artists


Artists have diverse
styles that are unique to
their interpretation of the
world around them.
Seldom do two exceptional-
ly creative and talented
artists come together to
produce one, much less
multiple pieces of art.
However, this is exactly
what has blossomed from
Nancy Zurenda and Anna
Gitana Layton's creative
gifts. The Blountstown
Public Library is pleased to
present the first "Noreen &
Claire Art Exhibit" set for
September 8 through
October 30.
It is interesting how this
all came about. Anna states
that the inspiration for the
collaboration came from
the Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement. Nancy did a
charcoal drawing of the
Bailey Cabin (circa 1860)
and Anna requested a print
of the drawing and if she
could add "some of my
watercolor flowers and
maybe a clothes line 'n
other stuff." The result was
an intriguing blend of two
artists' styles and the birth
of "Noreen & Claire",


ANNA GfTANA LAYrON


The collage of styles and
media will delight and
inspire the art lover and
artist alike. Anna and
Nancy said that the
"Noreen & Claire" collec-
tion will eventually gror to
include stories of the past
coupled with art works that
will reflect their shared love
of history and art.

Anna Layton lives in
Calhoun and Nancy
Zurenda resides in Jackson
County. The exhibit is free
and open to the public dur-
ing library hours. Call 674-
5200 for information.

The Blountstown Lady

force to be reckoned with at
the pre-season tournament
they hosted Thursday.
The BHS girls went up
against Cottondale in their
first match and won with a
score of 25-15, 25-18.
Next up was Liberty
County with the Bulldogs
winning the first game, 13-
25. The Lady Tigers fought
back in game two and won,
25-12. The final game of
the match was filled with
edge of the seat excitement
as the rival teams kept
tying the score. At game's
end, the Dawgs claimed the
victory, 10-15.
Also participating in the
tournament were the Lady
Pirates of Sneads and they
defeated both Cottondale
and Liberty County.
BHS Coach Tanya
Durham is very' optimistic
about the season. "I feel
like we should be a pretty
good team this year," she
tells The County Record.
"We only had the loss of
one senior last year, so basi-
cally we've got the same
team. We still have things
to improve on, but I'm real-
ly looking forward to a suc-
cessful season this year."

Tigers host Sneads Friday night in season opener



Tiger mistakes costly in




36-13 loss to Freeport


by Robert Turner

The kickoff classic in
Freeport Friday night
revealed some weaknesses
Blountstown Tiger coaches
can correct before the sea-
son opener with Sneads
Friday night at Bowles
Field. Without their start-
ing tailback, Freeport
racked up 192 yards rush-
ing and added 177 more
thru. the air to soundly
defeat Blountstown, 36-13.
Freeport took the open-
ing kickoff and drove 80
yards for a 7-0 lead. The
Tigers responded with an
impressive 12 play drive of


their own only to have a
pass intercepted at the
Freeport 21. Freeport
promptly marched down
field for their second score
and a 14-0 lead.
Princeton Grant
returned the kickoff to the
Tiger 45 giving the offense
great field position. On first
down, the Tigers fumbled
and Freeport took over.
Freeport scored on their
first four possessions of the
first half.
The Tigers' lone score of
the first half capped off a 62
yard, 9 play drive. Big
runs by Charles Buggs, Jr.
and Leon Broxton led to an


11 yard scamper by Buggs
for the touchdown. The
Tigers trailed 29-7 at half-
time.
"Freeport executed well
on offense and we didn't,"
coach Greg Jordan said
Tuesday. "We moved the
ball well, but they capital-
ized on our mistakes.
Defensively, we just didn't
play well. We'll make
some adjustments this
week at practice and hope
we play much better
against Sneads."
Jordan said Sneads has
a very athletic team with
some size and speed.
Sneads tied Graceville in
their classic, 14-14.
Freeport added a touch-
down in each of the final
quarters while Blountstown
added a score late in the
game on a 1 yard blast by
Alexander Garrett.
Junior quarterback
Charles Buggs, Jr. complet-
ed 4 of 17 passes for 35
yards and had one pass
intercepted. Paul Mosley
had all four receptions in

BY BLOUNTSTOWN TIGER J

HEAD COACH GREG JORDAN

. The Tigers traveled to Freeport and were soundly defeated
36-13 in the pre season classic.
To say it was a disappointment the way the score and the
game unfolded would be an understatement. We talked
about doing certain things in this game that we didn't do in
the spring. Like being more physical and better tackling and
playing better defensively. It was a replay from the spring
game in that Freeport scored on all four possessions in the
first half to build a 28-7 halftime lead.
Defensively, we have more work cut out for us before we
can be successful and control games. Defenses win cham-
pionships, and we are no where near where we need to be
or where we thought we were.
On offense, we moved the chains early in the game and
had crucial turnovers to stop drives. Freeport scored on their
firpt drive and we took the ball and drove, then had an inter-
ception. Freeport scored again, we got the ball back and
fumbled on their side of the field. We did not do a good job
of taking care of the football when we had a chance to stay
in the game early.
There is definitely no shortage of points to take out of thaf
game as far as practice and improving go. We have to take
what things we did well and build off of and try to correct the
things we did poorly. There will be some shifting of players
and positions until we find the right fit. The good thing is we
are 0-0 going into the Sneads game and the players have to
realize-this and get ready to defend HOME FIELD.
Sneads is a very athletic and dangerous team. They have
size and speed to go with their athletes. It will be a tough
challenge but hopefully we'll come out ready to play and HIT
someone this week!
Playing football is an ATTITUDE and we need to find some!
We will be working on it this week in practice. Hope you see
a different team on Bowles Field this week. Hope to see you
at the game. GO TIGERS!!!

An American Portrait
celebrates two centuries of
American milestones as our

through the songs that unit-

From songs celebrating
the joy of newfound inde-

that expressed our pain, the
show features the battle
cries that tore us apart and
the inspirational songs that
reconciled us. Audience
members will be treated to
our nation's diverse regions
through the music that cap-
tures their essence. The
finale is pure patriotism as
America's most beloved
anthems are performed
with eloquence and
majesty.
This stirring, evocative
homage to our homeland


comes alive through the leg-
endary piano work of Mac
Frampton and the powerful
voices of Sam Hagan and
Dawn Marie.
The Artist Series is
funded through Chipola's
Performing Arts Fund, with
grants from the National
Endowment for the Arts,
the Southern Arts
Federation, the Florida
Division of Cultural Affairs,

Association and corporate

What's cooking?
By: Lesa Corlett and
Cassie Taylor
This year the BHS
lunchroom is not only
changing its image but also
it's transforming the nutri-
tional choice. Instead of
having to sit and look at
plain white walls we now
get to see our tiger pride
splattered on the walls. As
well, the BHS lunchroom
program is providing not
only nutritional, but tasty
and scrumptious meals
while staying within the
requirements of the state
school lunch program and
staying within the budget.
Each day we have pleas-
ant and sociable lunchroom
ladies that greet us as we
walk in the line asking us
how we are and how our
day is going; as a result,
they're as friendly as Wal-
mart greeters. Mrs. Sandra
Dudley and Mrs.
Stephanie Lee offer a
healthy salad each day as
an alternate to the healthy
regular meal. Our very own
Mrs. Vera Anderson,
lunchroom manager, makes
use of the talents and skills
of our school lunch employ-
ees by allowing them to do
some "Home Cooking".
Mrs. Cristle Taylor man-
ages the "outtake store"
which permits the students
of BHS to purchase a vari-
ety of ice creams, chips,
drinks and even meals such
as chicken boats etc. Mrs.
Michelle Pitts assists the
students in putting in their
lunch account numbers in
the computer and checks
the students out. The
lunchroom staff is extreme-
ly dedicated and full of life.
Mrs. Marie Granger, the
District's Nutrient
Specialist, has submitted
the Calhoun County's mis-


sion statement for the
lunchroom: "Our mission is
to maintain a connection
between sound nutrition
and successful learning by
providing the highest quali-
ty food and service possi-
ble. We are committed to
creating a program to nour-
ish and educate the hearts,
Minds, and body of children
while serving healthy, deli-
cious breakfast and lunch
each day in a warm and
friendly atmosphere."
The lunch menu can be
viewed on the Blountstown
High School's website
http://blountstownhigh.org
under school lunch menus.
To check your child's
lunch account you can go to
http://www.mealpayplus.or
g . You will need your
child's student ID number
which can be found on their
schedules.

goal of usipg the only certi-

School, to teach across the
county.
With both classes
equipped with a projector
and a video camera, ENC
1101/1102 students tune
into the "Sherry Show"
every morning at 7:45.
This fall students are taking
ENC 1101; during the
spring semester, students
will take ENC'1102. If stui-
dents take both semesters,
they will earn a total of
eight English credits for col-
lege. These English credits
will not cost them, their
parents, or their scholar-
ship funds any money. For
many students, these eight
credits are all the English
credits they will require for


a four year degree.
Mrs. Joyner is excited to

ESTHER PENNINGTON
ROBINSON
Esther Pennington
Robinson, 92, died peace-
fully at home on August 24,
2009. She was the last sur-
viving child of Rufus
Pennington, builder of the
M & B Railroad and
B 1 o u n't s t o w n
Manufacturing.
Esther lived in
Blountstown for a brief
time in her early years then
moved to Atlanta, Georgia,
where she enjoyed a life-
long career as a real estate
broker. She was the first
woman president of the
DeKalb Board of Realtors
in 1970. In 1980, she was
the recipient of the Georgia
Association of Realtors
"President's Special Merit
' Award" for outstanding
service to the real estate
profession and the associa-
tion. She was a devoted


Sometime ago I received a package that was marked,
'Damaged In Transit But Deliverable. The sealing tape had
been ripped off, it had been tied with twine and the twine was
hanging off at the corners, the label was half gone and goods
were hanging out of rips in the corner. But it was still
marked, "Deliverable.'
I thought of how many lives with whom I am acquainted,
that have been damaged and hurt and torn apart at the.
seams because of one problem or another or maybe multi-
ple problems. We should be marked, "FRAGILE: HANDLE
WITH CARE." But it seems that we are like packages on a
long, bumpy and treacherous journey to our destination. We
have been crushed with the pain of losing a child, or the
heartache of a child abandoning us, or rebelling against us
and all that we stand for, and against God. We suffer the
pain of losing parents or grandparents, or losing a spouse.
We suffer the heartache of being left alone with no'one who
seems to really care about us.
We suffer loneliness, financial problems, or friends who
used to call frequently, seldom call anymore. Our lives that
once were filled with joy, happiness, big plans for the future,
both for ourselves and our children, have all been shattered
beyond repair. Our bodies which were once the epitome of
health, now are diseased and filled with pain.
Instead of being handled like "Fine China" marked
'Fragile, Handle With Care," we are slammed from one side
of life to the other. On the journey of life we have been
"Damaged in Transit', we have been unraveled, unglued,
undone, and are coming apart at the corners. We have been �
shoved against the walls of despair and frustration, handled
carelessly with no thought for the fragile heart inside, which
is already bleeding and broken.
We certainly do not need any more crushing.
People, let me say to you: Even though we may be dam-
aged in transit, we are still deliverable. We are on a heav-
enly journey. One day the Master will claim us and repair all
the damage and we will rejoice in a better land.

OBITUARIES


o.














Never A DIull Moment

by J.K. Newsome





A tale of two diners


2001.....Junish
I have driven by this
school hundreds of times,
usually I am checking for
kids crossing the street, but
now, because I am riding a
bike down the sidewalk, I
am enjoying the sounds of
early birds, and taking in
the little flowers and under-
brush that is just mere feet
inside the tree line, a whole
other world known only to
those who walk or run to
start their day.
I start work at 7 a.m. So
why am I riding a bike
down. a sidewalk near a
middle school at 7:35? It is
because my boss had a fight
with his girlfriend. Trust.
me, this will come together.
For a while now, I have
been meeting a buddy,
Steve, for breakfast every
Friday morning at 6. There
used to be four of us, but it
had dwindled down to 2,
and then when I changed
job locations, we added
Jim, so the group is a trio.
The breakfast is okay,
but the point is the fellow-
ship, which is nice, but the
fun for me is that combina-
tion of people, and the little
bits and pieces of conversa-
tion you hear, or just things
that happen. The place is
small enough that you miss
very little. '
. We get a mix of early
morning folks, and late
night folks, sort of a chang-
ing of the-guard from night
to day. I am thinking of this
one chick, we call her the
Dancer. She comes in, goes
to the restroom, gets
change and plays this N-
Sync song. She stands right
in front of the juke box and
dances, while silently
mouthing the words. When
the song is done, she leaves,
biggest grin on her face.
phe' never orders, not even,
coffee.
The song is old, but
without asking, I know why
the manager won't let them


a take it out of the box, one of
those little things people do
to keep a little happiness in
a stranger's life. I can't help
but wonder what Dancer
does with the rest of her
day.
We had to stop going
there because the waitress-
es just kept messing up,
badly, I can handle the
usual screw ups, but once
we witnessed the only wait-
ress on duty having a heat-
ed argument with a cus-
tomer because the lady had
closed the blinds on the
east side of the room, some-
thing that is done every
morning to keep from
blinding us all. She got real
mad because that was "her
job", and the lady will keep
her hands off the blinds!!!
She also took time out of
serving customers that
morning to look in the want
ads for another job, and as I
was paying to leave, she
was asking the opinion of
the same lady who had
messed with the blinds, as
to which jobs to call about!
I order the same thing
every time, Fiesta Omelet,
light on the jalapeno, extra
toast, grits and coffee. The
last time we ate there, I
was told by the newest
waitress, that they were out
of ham, did I still want the
fiesta. I did.
A . group of four men
came, in, sat in the booth
next to ours and she took
their order. (The family
that was seated before us
got up and left, they had
not had their order taken
yet.) Three of the men
ordered ham. My order
came...no ham (under-
stood) and extra jalapenos
(???) Then she informed
the 3 guys that ordered
ham, that they only had
one ham. ,r . serving
left.........who wants it?
(Why didn't I get that one
in my omelet?)
When I was done eating,


my extra toast finally made
it. When I went to the rest-
room before leaving, the
. sink was full of freshly
shaved whiskers.
We decided to find a
new place.
The first Friday that we
met at the new place, it was
raining, the place was busy,
a bit bigger, but still small
enough to keep an eye and
ear out for interesting tid-
bits. The food was good,
quick (plenty of waitresses,
and better looking , too).
The next Friday, Steve
couldn't make it because
two days prior, his son had
a seizure; at least they
thought he had. It turned
out he was in so much pain,
he was jerking around and
hit his head. They have
found a "mass" and will do a
scan Monday. Did I men-
tion that it was also the
kid's first birthday?
Jim was out of town for
vacation. So I was going it
alone,, which is okay,
because it allows me to
observe more, and sit at the
counter and be closer to the
action.
They don't know my
name yet, but shortly, I
knew the cook, Sam, wait-
ress, Angie (sometimes
called Angel), Linda,
Tammy and Sue. And a
guy named Tim.
Tim was scraping the
griddle, filling this and that,
loading the dishwasher, etd.
You know the type of place,
everything is right there
together, everybody pitches
in, and it runs like a well
oiled machine, no running
' out of 'ham or confronta-
tions with customers here.
Maybe the only down side
at present is Tim's pants.
They are hangin' just too
far south Makes you think
he is a plumber onthe side.
Linda has taken the'
paper from one of the folks

adopt rooms at the hospital


BY RON GILLIARD
Hospital Administrator

How about an update on
the many good things going
on at the hospital? There's
a'lot tb report!
As my article covered
last month, we're very
pleased to now provide dig-
ital mammography. You
can schedule by calling
674-5411, ext 216. And
don't forget to ask your doc-
tor about a "dex-scan" test
for osteoporosis to go along
with it.
And the mammography
rocffn has been beautifully
decorated after "adoption"
by Ms. Angie Hill. Great
job Angie and thanks again!
We started a very signif-
icant event at the hospital
last month. We're upgrad-
ing our "informational tech-
nology" capabilities in all of
the clinical sections of the
hospital. Eventually,' we'll
offer a paperless, electronic
medical record, or EMR.
You've probably read
about this as a part of the
"stimulus package." The
government is pushing all
hospitals to move in this
direction.
Due to the desire of our
Board to provide the best
care possible to you, we
were well underway to do
"this, well before the stimu-
lus act. Using state grants
and other state and federal
special funds, it will be a
total investment of over
$500,000. And you'll be
the benefactor!
This will make the med-
ical care we provide to you
safer and of the highest
quality. I like to brag on our
staff for the courteous and
compassionate care they
provide..Now, they'll con-
tinue to do that but in the
latest, technologically
advanced methods possi-
ble. Again, you, as our
patient, will be the one
benefiting.
For a small, rural hospi-
tal, we'll really be "state-of-
the ait" in the critical area
of medical informational
technology. Our lab and x-
ray departments should be
fully implemented by the
end of the year. By this
time next year, the entire
hospital will be completely
electronically "wired" and
we are very pleased with
this. And proud!

We also continue to
greatly improve the overall
appearance of the hospital.
Have you seen our newly
renovated nurses' station?
It's really nice and much
more functional for our
staff. The Dupont
Foundation adopted this
key part of the hospital.
Our adopted rooms con-
tinue to come along. The
Waldorff family of Altha
just completed our latest
one ' in honor of. family
members that served on
the Board or worked at the
hospital. Their adoption


: .


Angie Hill of Merle Norman recently adopted the mammog-
raphy room at Calhoun-Liberty Hospital. She is shown
above with Eddie Taylor and Richard Armstrong as they
prepare the space for a grand opening celebration set for
Oct. 9. Watch for more details in the coming weeks.


was a great surprise birth-
day gift for their Mama
who turned a young 98!
Happy Birthday, Mrs.
Waldorff, and thanks to the
family!
Other rooms are getting
close to completion and we
only have two inpatient
rooms left to be adopted.
We're so appreciative of
those that have adopted
and will soon have a nice
ceremony to recognize all of
them.
Perhaps you saw the
article on Congressman
Boyd's wonderful efforts to
secure funding for us for a
new building to house
Emergency Medical
Services and additional
clinic space. We're so
thankful to Mr. Boyd for
this and all of his support.
We're confident the Senate
will pass it and the
President will sign the legis-
lation. This will aid our
continued growth . and
efforts at serving you better.
We recently had over 30
members of our staff partic-
ipate in a full day of train-
ing on trauma treatment.
The training was provided
by experts in trauma care
from Sacred Heart
Hospital in Pensacola.
Some of. our local physi-
cians also participated.
This will help our staff take
even better of care of you in
emergencies, both EMS
and in the ER.
We're always working to
improve and expand the
services we provide to you.
Right now, we're working
hard on setting up an
"endoscopy clinic."
Diagnostic scopes, such as
colonoscopies would be per-
formed in our hospital by a
gastroenterologist doctor
with the assistance of a cer-
tified registered nurse anes-
thetist.
This will be an impor-


tant service for patients
needing such a procedure.
Just the "preparations" for
it are pretty rough. Then
you have to travel out of
town for the test.
. We'll help resolve the
travel part. (Sorry, but we
can't do much about the
preps!) We'll be providing
more information on this as
it develops.
We also continue to
improve our medical equip-
ment and our infrastructure
support as well. For exam-
ple, we're currently
upgrading our entire heat-
ing and cooling system.
We'll soon begin a major
renovation of our total
nurse call system as well.
And we're expanding our
new automatic pharmacy
dispensing equipment to
serve our inpatients even
better. Improved service
and safer care are our con-
stant goals.
Such equipment and the
many "state-of the-art"
items purchased recently
will all "tie" well into the
information technology
upgrades. It's an exciting
time for our staff as we
make these improvements
to better serve you. We feel
you'll be pleased.

I hope this update has
been helpful in letting you
know some of the exciting
and good things going on at
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital.
Again, they're all designed
to enable us to serve you
better. And we remain
very thankful more and
more of you are using the
services we offer. As you
do, we'll continue to
improve on those services
and add even more!
Give me a call if you
have any questions on any-
thing above, or on anything
about the hospital at 674-
5411, ext 206.


to my right and is explain-
ing about the story of the
bank robber getting caught
the day before, and how
she had helped. It seems
the get away car was
parked here at the diner.
She noticed the girl behind
the driver's seat was acting
strange and was not coming
in. Then she saw this guy
come running up and jump
in. When she heard about
the bank job, she called the
police, who spotted the car
at a motel and they caught
the robbers! Linda was
going later in the day to a
line up (I guess the bank
bags they had wasn't
enough to prove they done
it). She was wondering
what to wear, I suppose she
might not understand
which side of the glass she
is going to be on.... "Yep,
that is the lady that saw us,
Officer Bob."
Tim had loaded the
washer, turned it on and
turned his back to us to
scrape on the grill some
more, while the.cook took a
break. The guy to my right
says, "Tim....yo, Tim!!"
Tim turned around, with
a slack jawed look. "You
forgot to close the door on
the washer....the door on
the washer, Tim, close it or
you're going to have soapy
water all over the floor."
Tim closed it.
Angie came by to top off
his coffee and said,
"Thanks, honey, he always
forgets."
Angie topped off mine
and moved on. Small con-
versations all around,
orders taken from. the
booths, and called to the
cook, to go orders coming in
on the phone. It is interest-
ing to watch a short order
cook, they are truly amaz-
ing. He remembers every
order in his head, and
knows how to get every-
thing done at just the right
time; the toast will pop up.
just as he 'gets there with
the plate.
Linda came by about
then and stopped just past
Tim. "My goodness Tim,
pull up those pants and
tighten up that belt, num-
ber one, customers are los-
ing there appetites, and
number two, no one is


allowed to show more
cleavage than me!!"
Tim grinned and tugged,
and got back to work.
Heck, the whole place was
grinning.
When I was done, I
stood up to go pay up and
leave. As I turned to head
to the register, I saw
Tammy sweeping the floor
under a booth, one of the
regulars was sitting there
reading his paper, with both
his feet up so she could
reach all the way back. Just
like he was at home. Yep, I
like this place.
One of my regular cus-
tomers wanted some work
done on her car today, and
was going to be there early,
but I needed to take her
back home. Since she lives
on my way to work, I said I'
would be there at 6:45, get
her car and leave mine
there, or I would have had
one more cup of coffee at
the diner that morning.
I got to work at 6:55.
Jon, the other early guy,
was sitting on the window
.stoop at the front of our
store; obviously the boss
was not there yet. He rides
a bicycle to work. He has

lost his driver's license for
reasons we won't go into.
Sometimes his live in girl-
friend will drive him to
work. Often his alarm clock
does not "go off'. I told Jon'
to hop in and we would go
get the boss out of bed. He
lives about 3 miles away in
an apartment complex.
We found him about a
half mile from his place. He
had had a fight with his live
in, and she didn't set the
alarm, and wouldn't get up
'and take him to work. So
not only did he get up late,
he had to pedal to work.
I decided to let Jon drive
him to work in the car, I
would take the bike, let him'
open up and deal with
those early birds standing
with their arms crossed and
looking at their watches
every 30 seconds.
So, here I am. On my
boss's bike, at 7:35, enjoy-
ing the flowers, birds, squir-
rels and quiet. Most folks
are not out of bed yet, and I
feel like I have had a full
day.
I do like the hew break-
fast place. I just gotta figure
out how to get the Dancer
Sto come to this one.

went to lay down. A short
time later, she came back
into the bedroom, turned
on the lights, and he looked
up to see her armed with a
shotgun. He alleged Lisa

you.",
Fearing for his life,
Michael threw a shoe at
Lisa in an effort to distract
her, got on his feet, strug-
gled with her over the shot-


gun, then fled to the neigh-
bors.
A witness in the home
provided a statement that
was consistent with
Michael Blocker's story.

Lisa was then placed
