FAMILY OF THE YEAR



FAMILY OF THE YEAR


BY JUDY LUDLOW
Calhoun County
Extension Director
Our careers with the
Calhoun County IFAS
Extension Service are
very diverse, and one of
the most rewarding
things we do is coordi-


nate the selection of the
Outstanding Farm
Family of the Year.
Calhoun County is
blessed with a rich farm-
ing history, and we have
been presenting this
award for over 55 years.
Each year, Farm
Families are honored
locally, and by the North


Florida Fair.
The Outstanding
Farm Family of the Year
Award is given to a fami-
ly whose pride, dedica-
tion, and devotion to
farming, is a way of life.
These qualities are also
reflected every day by
their interactions with
family, community, and


colleagues. This year's
2009 Outstanding Farm
Family is the Steve
"Beaver" and Michelle
Yoder Family! They
were presented the
award Thursday night at
the Calhoun County
Farm Bureau Banquet.

Former


Calhoun


deputy


named mi


shooting

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
A former Calhoun
County Sheriff's deputy
has been identified as the
officer involved in a
Marianna shooting earlier
this month.
According to Police
Chief Hayes Baggett of the
Marianna Police
Department, K-9 Officer
Bliss Moreau shot and
killed the suspect in the
Sept. 4 incident. Chief
Baggett says Ofc. Moreau
is currently on paid admin-
istrative leave and, once he
is medically cleared, he will
return to duty.
The Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement (FDLE) is
handling the investigation.
A press release from their
office indicates on the night
of Sept. 4 at approximately
7:15 p.m., a Marianna
police officer began pursu-
ing a speeding Chevrolet
Suburban on Penn Avenue.
The driver, Mark Anthony
Daniels, 31, evaded the
officer's attempt Io stop
him.
The vehicle driven by
Daniels was blocked on
Oak Street by a responding
officer's patrol car. While
officers approached the
vehicle, Daniels accelerat-
ed, striking the patrol car. A
Marianna Police Officer,
now identified as Moreau,
,fired his weapon at the
vehicle, striking Daniels.
The vehicle Daniels was
driving traveled several
blocks before striking a
power pole and coming to
rest at the intersection of
Orange Street and South
Street. Daniels was trans-
ported to a local hospital
where he was pronounced
dead.
Chief Baggett placed
Ofc. Moreau on routine
administrative leave, pend-
ing the outcome of the
FDLE investigation. The
results of the investigation
will be submitted to the
State Attorney's Office for
the 14th Judicial Circuit for

counties,
made the CATHY SUMMERLIN
arrests.
Frederica Hill, a
licensed practical nurse,
was employed by, Interim
Home Health Agency to
provide 40 hours of skilled
nursing per week to a
Medicaid recipient.
Medicaid fraud investiga-
tors received information
from the Department of
Children and Families'
Adult Protective Services
that in late 2004, Frederica
entered into a verbal agree-
ment with Cathy
Summerlin, the mother of
the Medicaid recipient, to
falsify service records indi-
cating Frederica Hill was
providing care services to
Summerlin's quadriplegic
son.
After obtaining the falsi-
fied service logs from
Summerlin, Frederica Hill


would submit the logs to
her employer, which sub-
mitted the claims to the
Medicaid program for reim-
bursement. From January
1, 2005 until December 15,
2008, Frederica Hill was
paid over $112,000 for
services she never provid-
ed. Frederica's husband,
Larry Hill, had knowledge
of the agreement and made
payments to Summerlin for
her participation in the
scheme.
Frederica Hill is charged
with Medicaid provider
fraud, organized fraud,
communications fraud,
grand theft, neglect of a dis-
abled adult, and conspiracy
to commit Medicaid
provider fraud. If convicted,
she faces up to 80 years in
prison and up to $40,000 in
fines. Larry Hill is charged
with Medicaid provider
fraud and conspiracy to
commit Medicaid provider
fraud. If convicted, he faces
up to 10 years in prison and
$10,000 in fines. The case
is being prosecuted by the
State Attorney's Office for
the 14th Judicial Circuit.

Lt. Col. Ty Edwards is




presented $50,000 van


BY WENDI WINTERS
For The Capital, Annapolis

It's been almost a year
since Blountstown's own
Lt. Col. Ty Edwards was
wounded in Afghanistan.
He remains in Tampa
where he is undergoing
rehab, but is able to leave
the hospital on weekends
and spend time at home
with his family. He even
had the opportunity to
make a trip to Annapolis
Sept. 12 where he
received a gift that will
most definitely change
his life. Here's the story,
reprinted with permis-
sion, from The Capital
newspaper.
The vast parking lot
surrounding Navy-
Marine Corps Memorial
Stadium was a sea of
navy blue and gold, as
Naval Academy gradu-
ates and midshipmen's
families celebrated
before, during and after
yesterday's Navy-
Louisiana Tech game.
Feasts from simple paper
bag picnics to elaborate
tented, catered affairs
were on display at tailgate
parties that dotted the lot
like confetti.
In the lower end of the
lot, beneath a high-flying,
helium-filled balloon, the
Class of '74 dedicated its
fiesta-themed party to a
Marine officer from
Florida who was grievous-
ly wounded during an
ambush in, Afghanistan
last Oct. 18.
In a special post-game
ceremony, the officer, Lt.
Col. Ty Edwards, 39, was
presented with a cus-
tomized 2010 Toyota
Sienna van valued at


Wounded veteran Marine Lt: Col. Ty Edwards, left, shows off the customized 2010
Toyota Sienna van he and his family received from Operation Support Our Troops to one
of the friends who saved his life in Afghanistan, Navy Corpsman Stephen Albright of
Germantown. The van was officially presented to Edwards in a ceremony following yes-
terday's Navy-Louisiana Tech football game, and Edwards was the guest of.thonor at a


tailgate party hosted by the academy's Class of 1974.


$50,000. The vehicle had
been adapted to safely
accommodate the officer,
his motorized, 325-pound
wheelchair and his young
family.
The van's rearview
mirror is outfitted with a
Bluetooth, GPS and a
backup camera. At the
touch of a button, a short
ramp glides out the right
side door. Special devices
allow Edwards to lock his
chair securely in place
without assistance, and
the headrests are custom-
embroidered with the
U.S. flag. In the rear,
there's a drop-down, 10-
inch TV with a DVD
player for his children,


Mason, 8, and Alaina, 6.
"The country should
be doing this every-
where," said Skip
Stocknick of Crownsville,
vice president of the Class
of '74. "Everyone should
be involved, not just for-
mer military. This guy
sacrificed his future for all
of us. He deserves the
benevolence of society,
not just that of academy
grads."
During 'the firefight in
Kunar Province near the
Pakistan border,
Edwards, an embedded
training team command-
er, was struck in the fore-
head with an armor-piec-
ing bullet that blew off the

translator shielded
Edwards' body and
radioed for help. Navy
Corpsman Stephen
Albright, of Germantown,
and Capt. Sean
McQuiston, currently sta-
tioned at Quantico, Va.,
crawled through the hail
of bullets and rockets to
administer first aid to the
unconscious officer.
Edwards was airlifted
to a military hospital in
Germany and then to hos-
pitals in the United
States. Though he's still
paralyzed on his right side

"Noreen & Claire" art exhibit

on display at Calhoun Library
Artist Anna Gitana Layton (shown above) was busy at the Calhoun County Public
Library on North Pear Street in Blountstown last week doing her watercolor work as vis-
itors stopped by to view the "Noreen & Clair" art exhibit. The collection features the col-
laborative works of Layton and Nancy Zuremda which they describe as "a. blend of art
and love of history."
It is rare for two artists to work together, however, when Anna saw one of Nancy's
charcoal drawings of the Bailey Cabin at the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement, she asked
if she could add "some of my watercolor flowers and maybe a clothes line and other
stuff." Nancy agreed and the creation that resulted birthed "Nozeen & Claire." These two
talented ladies now have a complete collection that begins with Nancy's charcoal
drawings and ends with Anna's watercolor painting. The exhibit will be at the
Blountstown library through Oct. 30. Stop by Thursday and you will catch Anna
demonstrating her work..

serve the pioneer lifestyle
and stand as a living history

future generations.

Calhoun County. As goals
were outlined, it was clear
that success would require
synergy across the county
to build the momentum
needed to. move Calhoun
County forward.
The Chamber took com-
ments and ideas from the
Visioning sessions, devel-
oped a three-year strategic
plan, and created the Super
Council. The council con-
.cept has been applauded by
the Florida Dept. of
Community Affairs (DCA)


and the Governor's Office
of Tourism, Trade, and
Economic Development
(OTTED).
Current plans are to
hold this meeting twice a
year, making it easier to
move forward with discus-
sions that affect Calhoun
County. The first Council
meeting was held in
January, and was very suc-
cessful. Having all parties
in one room, at one time,
should enable constructive
discussions that result in
progress.
The Super Council
meeting will primarily focus
on two things: first, and
update on the Rural
Economic . Development
Catalyst Project. Second,
updates from each of the
Boards on ongoing projects.

Tigers squeak past Chipley, 6-3


Time consuming drives
and a bend but don't break
defense was enough for the
Blountstown Tigers to
squeak past Chipley Friday
night, 6-3. The win pushed
Blountstown to 2-0 with a
tough Wewa team coming
to town for homecoming


Friday night.
"We had a good opening
drive inside their 20 but got
sacked for a loss of 9 then
threw three straight incom-
pletions," coach Greg
Jordan said Monday. "We
held the ball for eight min-
utes, then they held it for


six on their first drive. We
only had three possessions
in the first half," Jordan
noted.
Tiger running backs had
a good night racking up 210
yards on 30 attempts and a
7 yard per carry average.
Jawon Mosley led the


Leon Broxton uses a stiff arm to shed a Chipley defender for exta yards.


The Tiger defense held Chipley to a lone field goal in the game.

up by a 59 yard run on
their opening drive of the
third quarter. The Tiger
defense gave up one yard
on three running plays forc-
ing the 24 yard field goal
that gave Chipley a 3-0
lead. Blountstown scored
on their next series to go
ahead 6-3 after the missed
PAT.
"Defensively, we've only
given up one touchdown in
eight quarters. Our
defense is keeping us in the
games. Our offensive line
is doing a good job and our
backs are running hard.
Our passing game has got
to get better," Jordan stat-
ed.
Dowling Lee led the
Tigers on defense getting in

defense and one of the best
runningbacks in the area in
Chance Knowles," Jordan
added.


Darren Hult breaks away for 42 yards.


Alexander Grant's PAT attempt from the hold of Charles
Buggs, Jr. missed but the tigers led 6-0.

Chipley rushed for 200 yards against the Tigers but couldn't score a touchdown.






BY BLOUNTSTOWN TIGER

HEAD COACH GREG JORDAN "


The old saying a WIN is a
WIN is a WIN was never
more true for the Tigers at
Chipley Friday night.
We held on for a 6-3 win
against a much improved
Chipley team from last year.
I, like most of you that trav-
eled to Chipley to watch the
game, was somewhat dis-
appointed at the score and
our overall play of the team
after the contest. Yes, we did
a lot of things during the
game that prevented us from
ever opening up a comfort-
able lead. But that game
was a Chipley vs
Blountstown game and we
did win the game!
I talked to Coach David
Pitts on Saturday and he
reminded me that any win
against Chipley is a good
win.
The coaches and players
know there are a lot of mis-
takes that have to be
cleaned up for us to be suc-


cessful against a tough
Wewa team this week. The
first is cut down on the num-
ber of penalties. We had 9
for 120 yards in the game.
Several of those stopped
drives for us or kept drives
going for Chipley. Those are
things that must be corrected
and will be corrected before
our next contest.

Now to our next oppo-
nent, the Gators from Wewa.
Talking with people from
down there this is their best
group of talent and/or team
since I was down there
coaching in the 2005 sea-
son. They have size up front,
a fast hard hitting defense,
and probably one of the best
running backs in the area in
Chance Knowles. Against
Jefferson County, he
accounted for nearly 250
total yards and carried the
ball 27 times. He is a very
hard runner and also has


great speed. We will have to
contain him if we are to have
a chance to win the game.
Two weeks ago, Wewa
defeated the Chipley Tigers
25-13 at Wewa. Maybe that
will serve as motivation for
our players to get ready for a
tough and physical contest
that's coming up. It's a
tough assignment for coach-
es and players with all the
distractions of homecoming
week to keep the players
focused on what matters to
us agd that is to win the
football game. The maturity
level of this team will be very
important this week.
Leadership from the players
to stay focused and prepare
to the best of their ability will
be key this week.
It should be a good game
this week here at Bowles
Field for the 2009
Homecoming! Hope to see
you at the game!
GO TIGERS!!!

Reading has never been as

Mrs. DeAngelis' class.
Rachel DeAngelis is a
new teacher at BHS. She
teaches 9th grade English
at our school and enjoys it
very much. I had the
chance to sit down and dis-
cuss how she likes it here
and got to hear some inter-

of hers. Being that Mrs.
DeAngelis was a new

she liked BHS so far. She
replied exuberantly, "I real-

has had experience in

Last year she taught at

Speaking .through Isaiah
said, speaking for God,
"When I called, no one
answered. When I spoke, no
one listened." Isa. 66:4b.
During the early 1980s a
marvelous new gadget came
into millions of homes -- the
answering machine. As a
result, "After the beep" has
become one of the most
familiar phrases in the
English language. While
there are a few creative souls
out there who endeavor to
entertain us with witting, out
of the ordinary messages, we
all pretty much know what to
expect when we hear the
answering machine pick up,
don't we? A person may as
well simply record - "Hello,
this is you-know-who, and
we're not you-know-where,
so, at the you-know-when,
leave a you-know-what, and
we will- well you know."
I don't like 'the beep.' I
have an affliction whose
symptoms only -strike when
I'm leaving a message "after
the beep." I am transformed
into an idiot. I have left some
of the dumbest messages on
those confounded contrap-
tions.
Some have some ingen-
ious messages recorded on
their machines. My next door
neighbor had at one time
this:
"Hi, this is the refrigerator
talking, the answering
machine is on vacation. After
the beep, leave a message
and I will post it on my door.
Keep cool now."
A creative soul in
Nebraska recorded this mes-
sage on his answering
machine: "To speak or not to
speak, that is the question!
Whether tis nobler in the
.mind..tq- 'ea.e a Tmcsage
after the beep, or to, take up.
arms against a sea of
answering machines, and, by
opposing them, end them all.


To dial, to speak no more!
Thus answering machines do
make cowards of us all."
I suppose I may as well
get used to it. The marvels of
technology cannot be
reversed. I think the situation
will get worse. I envision the
day when I will call hone
and my wife's recorded voice
says: "Hi, this is your wife.
To find out what's for dinner,
press 1; To apologize for
what you said last night,
press 2; to say I love you,
press 3; If you would like to
speak with me personally,
press 0 and wait. I will be
with you shortly."

Not least among the
advantages answering
machines have provided is
the ability to "screen" your
calls. You can add caller ID.
So you are home and the
phone rings. Caller ID says
its your pastor calling - you
are ready to walk out the door
- golf clubs already in the car
- you don't want to talk to the
pastor right now, so you
don't answer the phone.
There is an answering
machine- in central Florida
with this message: "No, we
do not need a new roof. The
siding on our house is fine.
We are not in the market for
an air conditioner. We
already have health insur-
ance. We do not want to be
in your survey. If, after all
that, you'd like to leave a
message, do so after the

Altha man jailed after pot



FOund growing behind corn


BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor

An Altha man was
arrested Monday after
investigators found pot
growing in the yard ,behind
his house.
Reuel Smith, 50, has
been charged with manu-
facture of marijuana and
possession of more than 20
grams of marijuana.
According to the
Calhoun County Sheriff's
Office, the Calhoun-Liberty
Drug Task Force served a
search warrant on Smith's
home at 19281 NE Dusty
Lane. A woman, who was
the only one at the home
when the warrant was
served, denied any knowl-
edge of the marijuana and
advised she just rented a
room from Smith, the
homeowner.
A search team, consist-
ing of Sgt. Mark Mallory,
Capt. Michael Bryant, and
Dep. Nick Keller, all of the
Calhoun County Sheriff's
Office, and Inv. Todd
Wheetley of the Liberty
County Sheriff's Office,
searched the home. On the
north side of the yard
behind several rows of corn


ms was found

marijuana. A
ty of pot was

ived home and

1j Edwards continued-


cal therapy, he has come a
long way in the past 11
months.
During the week,
Edwards stays at the
Tampa Polytrauma
Rehabilitation Center, part
of the James A. Haley
Veterans Hospital in
Florida, 300 miles from his
Blountstown, Fla., home-
town.
He has been unable to
attend his son's football
games or watch his daugh-
ter tumble for the Tiny
Mites cheerleading team.
The new van may change
all that.
"This van is great," said
Edwards' wife, Anna, 34.
"It's beyond description. It
means freedom. You don't
realize how restricted he's
been from participating in
life."
It was * Operation
Support Our Troops that
stepped in to help
Edwards. The group was
founded in 2002 by Mary
Kay -Salomone, an Army
wife and mother of two
Army officers. Severna
Park resident. Steven
Middleton, a retired Navy
commander and president
of the Naval Academy's
Class 6f 1974, is chairman
of the nonprofit organiza-
tion's Wheels for Warriors
program.


For the 16th time since
April 2006, the group
raised $50,000 to purchase,
customize and present a
new, adaptive van to a vet-
eran wounded in overseas
fighting. Edwards is the
fourth Marine to receive a
van from the organization -
and the first officer.

"We get donations from
anywhere we can,"
Middleton said. "A group in
Connecticut does a spin-a-
thon every year and gave
us .$100,000 this year. Kids
send change. Some people
send $25 every month. The
more money we have, the
more vans we can give
away."
"It's a miracle Ty
Edwards is here," said
Salomone, who wore Navy
colors for the occasion. "An
Auburn ROTC graduate in
1992, he's been on active
duty"for 17-1/2 years. We
-felt for all these years of
selfless service to our
nation, we are honored to
give him this van and this
special weekend. The van
will give his family inde-
pendence and freedom they
haven't had."

she found BHS and saw
that if fit her liking
immensely. Keep in mind
though, that Mrs.
DeAngelis lives in
Tallahassee. To drive an
hour back and forth every-
day takes true dedication!
When receiving a new
job- that you like, you
always set goals, and
achievements for yourself;
Mrs. DeAngelis was kind
enough to share with me
what she hoped to achieve
here at BHS. To get better
at teaching and become a
wise, highly educated
instructor is something that
she is working very hard to
reach. Learning to teach
things more effectively,
whether learning from a fel-
low teacher, or learning
from students, is another
goal that Mrs. *DeAngelis
sees to achieve in her
future here at Blountstown
High. When asked is she
hoped to stay at BHS for
awhile, she couldn't answer
soon enough, "Definitely,"
that one word sums up her
admiration for this school.
Mrs. DeAngelis is very
easy to get to know. At the
beginning of the year she
had students fill out forms
with information, this could
be personal or not. She was
surprised at how open some
of the students were; they
knew that they could trust
her just from her humble


aura. When in school Mrs.
DeAngelis was 'a self pro-
claimed "nerdy kid, who
answered all the questions,
sat at the front of the class,
and enjoyed school very
much." She knows how it is
for those who adore school,
and knows how it can be for'
those who despise it.
Conforming her teaching
methods to accommodate
each and every kids' likes,
is something Mrs.
DeAngelis does very well.
Who doesn't love to draw
and color a picture of a
scene from a book?
Everyone should want to
have Mrs. DeAngelis as
their English teacher, I'm
happy to say that I do. She
embodies all the require-
ments that a teacher should
have. Exciting charisma
and a kind and modest per-
sonality is all wrapped up
inside her. If you want a


vate jet to attend yester-
day's football game and the -
official post-game presenta-
tion of the van in the stadi-
um parking lot.
During their whirlwind -
weekend in Annapolis, the "
Edwards family was treat-
ed to a special 10 a.m.
"Pledge of Allegiance" cere-
mony at Chick & Ruth's
Delly on Friday. Later, the
family lunched with the
midshipmen and Naval
Academy Commandant -
Capt. Matthew Klunder in
King Hall, toured the reno--
vated Naval Academy
Museum and visited with
friends on campus.

"I feel so honored and
humbled by all of this,"
Edwards said. "It's so over-
whelming, kind and sup-
portive."
Class of '74 alumnus
Tom Luketich of Severna
Park ncted: "It's very emo- �
tional and heartwarming.... -,
It's great there is something
we can do to help those vet-
erans." ,

Farm Family cont'd-
The Yoders raise cattle,

about all aspects of farming,
from field to market.
Join us in congratulating

2009 HIN1 FLU
f) 4 2 )f! H NI swinee flu)?
2009 H1NI (referred to as "swine flu" early on) is a new influenza virus causing illness in people. This new virus
was first detected in people in the United States in April 2009. This virus is spreading from person-to-person
worldwide, probably in much the same way that regular seasonal influenza viruses spread. On June 11, 2009, the
World Health Organization (WHO) signaled that a pandemic of 2009 HI1N1 flu was underway.
* Why is 2009-H1N1 virus sometimes called
"sw-ne flu"?
This virus was originally referred to as "swine flu" because lab testing showed that
many of the genes in this new virus were very similar to influenza viruses that normally
occur in pigs (swine) in North America. But further study has shori that this new virus
is very different fromn bhat normally circulates in North American pigs. It' h' two genes
from flu viruses that normally circulate in pigs in Europe and Asia and bird yian) genes
and human genes. Scientists call this a "quadruple reassortani" virus


Who is at highest risk from
- IN1 swine fle?
Most U.S. cases of H1N1 swine flu have been in older
children and young adults. It's not clear why, and it's not
clear whether this will change.
But certain groups are at particularly high risk of severe
disease or bad outcomes if they get the flu:
* Young children, especially those under 12 months of age
* Elderly people are at high risk of severe flu disease.
But relatively few swine flu cases have been seen in
people over age 65.
* People with cardiovascular conditions (except high
blood pressure)
* People with liver problems
* People with kidney problems
* People with blood disorders, including sickle cell
disease
* People with neurologic disorders
* People with neuromuscular disorders
* People with metabolic disorders, including diabetes
* People with immune suppression, including HIV
infection and medications that suppress the immune
system, such as cancer chemotherapy or anti-rejection
drugs for transplants
* Residents of a nursing home or other chronic-care
facility
People in these groups should seek medical care as soon
as they get flu symptoms.
A striking number of adults who developed severe swine
flu complications have been morbidly obese. However,
obesity itself does not seem to be the issue. The vast
majority of extremely obese people suffer respiratory
problems and/or diabetes, which seem to be the
underlying reason for their severe flu complications.
