ANNIVERSARY


Pioneer Settlement

to celebrate 20 years


The Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement will host. "An
Expression of Gratitude", a
celebration of their 20th
anniversary on Satuiday,
October 3, beginning at 3
p.m. CST.
The event will feature a
special ceremony, mass.
community choir, and a
country buffet meal.
Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement founders,
Willard and Linda Smith,
first envisioned the settle-
ment years before it
became a reality. As people
who lived the pioneer
lifestyle, they realized with
progress, the values and tra-
ditions were being lost, and
wanted to preserve the pio-
neer traditions that formed
the panhandle region.
With a dedicated group
of fellow supporters, volun-
teers and through persever-
ance, commitment and pas-
sion, the settlement was


officially started in July
1989. Through a land grant
lease from Calhoun County,
the settlement was able to
move its first buildings and
materials brought from
around the region to pre-
serve the pioneer lifestyle
and stand as a living history
experience to educate
future generations.
The Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement is located inside
Sam Atkins Park off SR 20
West at Silas Greene Street
in Blountstown (turn right
at Lindy's). For more infor-
mation, call 674-2777 or
check out the Settlement's
website at www.pp
museum.org
For those interested in
singing in the community
choir at the celebration,
rehearsal is at 6 p.m.,
Thursday, Oct. 1, in the
Frink Gym. Please come
out and help us prepare the
music for this celebration.

In less than a week,
the Board of
Commissioners will
choose the company to
handle garbage service
for Calhoun County.
At their last meet-
ing, the commission
opened bids from three
different companies:
Emerald Waste
Services (EWS), Waste
Pro of Florida, and
Waste Management,
the company that cur-
rently holds the con-
tract. The bids Were
tabled and turned over
to a committee to
review and rank before
the next meeting set for
2 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct.
6, at the Extension
Office.
The committee was
comprised of Clerk of
Court Ruth Attaway,
Commissioner Danny
Ray Wise (district 1),
County Administrator
Sonny O'Bryan,
Assistant County


Administrator Joe
Wood, and Emergency
Management
Coordinator Angie
� Wood. They reviewed
the bids and scored
them on a number of
areas, ranging from
cost to customer serv-
ice record.
EWS was the top
scorer in price. They
proposed to bill cus-
tomers $14.95/month
compared to Waste
Management's propos-
al of $16.50 ($14.85 for
senior citizens) and
Waste Pro's proposal of
$17.50 (with a 5 per-
cent discount to sen-
iors). All three dropped
their prices if the coun-
ty collects garbage fees
through property taxes.
However, in other
areas, Waste
Management came out
on top, resulting in
them being ranked
number 1, followed by
Waste Pro and then
EWS. To see the score

There wasn't a cloud in the sky Friday as BHS homecoming week culminated with a big parade and huge win over
Wewa on the football field, followed by the traditional homecoming dance. For the seniors at BHS, this was the first year it
didn't rain on their parade! The week included dress-up days, a bonfire, the Tigers' Roar pep rally, and crowning of Mr.
and Miss BHS, Princeton Grant and Erin Fowler. Pictured above are seniors on the homecoming court just before the
coronation began on Tuesday afternoon in the BHS Auditorium. They include (from left) Stafford Dawson, Allison
Wroblewski, Jason Money, Jessica Collier, Cory Baldwin, Sasha Simmons, Princeton Grant, Shaterial Davis, Tyler
Prowant, Erin Fowler, Zack Segers, Allison Slongo, Darren Huff, and Rachel King.


Underclassmen on the homecoming court include (from left) freshmen Kenya Baker and
Hope Jerkins, sophomores Nick Cessna and Savannah Prowant, and juniors P.J. Buggs
and Sierra Chason. They are pictured above at the homecoming coronation held Tuesday

Former BHS athlete congratulates

parade grand marshal Coach Pitts


To the Editor:
Congratulations to
Coach David Pitts (BHS
parade grand marshal)!
This fine man taught me
how to live very early on in
life. Coach Pitts drilled the
fundamentals of hard work,
dedication, discipline and
integrity into the minds of
all the athletes and stu-
dents he coached and
taught. It worked on most
all of them (including me)
and I can say that those les-
sons have kept me alive
and thriving for almost 40
years, especially in my,
travels worldwide.
He also taught me not to
give up when the battle gets
tough -to gut it out- and
how to parallel park and


perform a three-point-turn!
(He never had to use the
extra steering wheel or the
extra brakes either!)
Most of all, I appreciate
the fact that Coach Pitts
* taught me how to carry
myself as a gentleman, be
respectful of everyone and
be a man of my word. (For
the young folks reading
this: Your word is your
bond!) I wish I could be
there in person to honor
this great man, but I will
have to do so from afar.
So, Coach Pitts, congrats
and good luck the rest of
the way. Thank you for
teaching me the right way.

With warm regards,
Wayne F. Boyd

Parade organizer extends thanks to

community for "raining" support


For the first time since
2006, the skies over
Blountstown High School
held back the rain for the
"annual" homecoming
parade on Friday,
September 25. Despite
the severe heat, spectators
along the parade route
enjoyed seeing approxi-
mately 85 entries.
The high school classes
and clubs outdid them-
selves with the creative
approach to the floats they
built. Special thanks to the
teachers who worked with
the students to make sure


the floats were finished on
time for the parade. Many
hours were spent after the
regular school days to
assure success for the kids.
In true Calhoun County
style, the community
"rained" down their sup-
port on this very special
activity. A huge thanks to
all who supported the
parade. It is always a com-
munity effort and, thanks
to everyone, it was a com-
munity success.

2009 HIN1 FLU IN HUMANS


CDC has determined that 2009 HIN1 virus is contagious and is spreading from human to human.

Spread of 2009 HIN1 virus is thought to occur in the same way that seasonal flu spreads. Flu viruses are spread
mainly from person to person through coughing or sneezing by people with influenza. Sometimes people may
become infected by touching something - such as a surface or object - with flu viruses on it and then touching their
hmout or t o/e-


The symptoms of 2009 HINI flu virus in
people include fever, cough, sore throat,.
runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache
chills and fatigue. A significant number of
people who have been infected with this
virus also have reported diarrhea and vomil
ing. Severe illnesses and death has occurred
as a result of illness associated with this
virus.

Illness with the new H1NI virus has ranged from mild to severe. While most people who have been sick have
recovered without needing medical treatment, hospitalizations and deaths from infection with this virus have
occurred.

People infected with seasonal and 2009 HINI flu shed virus and may be able to infect others from I day before
getting sick to 5 to 7 days after. This can be longer in some people, especially children and people with weakened
immune systems and in people infected with the new HIN1 virus.


CONTAMINATION & CLEANING
How long can influenza virus remain viable on objects (such as books and doorknobs)?
Studies have shown that influenza virus can survive on environmental surfaces and can infect a person
for 2 to 8 hours after being deposited on the surface.
What kills inDuena virus?
Influenza virus is destroyed by heat (167-2120F [75-1000�C). In addition, several chemical germicides,
including chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, detergents (soap), iodophors (iodine-based antiseptics), and
alcohols are effective against human influenza viruses if used in proper concentration for a sufficient
length of time. For example, wipes or gels with alcohol in them can be used to clean hands. The gels
,I should be rubbed into hands until they are dry.
'Wbat surfaces are most likely to be sounaes of contamination?
Germs can be spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then
- touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth. Droplets from a cough or sneeze of an infected person move
WIh-ough the air. Germs can be spread when a person touches respiratory droplets from another person
i: . their hands.

Friends gather to show

support for Bill Montford

Several friends and family members gathered
at Lake Mystic Monday night to show their sup-
port for Blountstown native Bill Montford who is
running for a state Senate seat.
Montford is the former Leon County
Superintendent of Schools and CEO of the Florida
Association of School Superintendents. He is
vying for the seat being vacated by Senator Al
Lawson. Montford is pictured above with several
friends at the gathering and at left, with his sister,
Linda Montford Whitfield of Blountstown.


Residents and passersby
may see some smoke in the
air beginning, Oct. 1 when
the U.S. Forest Service
starts its prescribed fire
season of approximately
100,000 acres in the
Apalachicola National
Forest.to prevent wildfires
and promote a healthy for-
est for plants and animals.
"Prescribed fire plays an'
integral part in reducing
fuels, improving all wildlife
habitat, controlling compet-
ing vegetation, controlling
disease and improving for-
age," said Lynne Howard,
who directs the U.S. Forest
Service's fire efforts for the
National Forests in Florida.


Plants and animals
native to the longleaf pine
habitats in the Apalachicola
national Forest depend on
natural fire cycles, which
are mimicked through the
use of prescribed fires to
balance habitat and food
sources.
To begin the season,
approximately 12,000
acres of the northeast por-
tion of the forest is sched-
uled for burning. Drivers
and residents are reminded.
of the possibility of unex-
pected shifting winds that
could increase the risk of
smoke on the road during
prescribed burns. Always
proceed with caution.

Tigers win battle with Wewa, 39-27


After a defensive strug-
gle a week earlier against
Chipley, coach Greg Jordan
stressed the importance of
his offense to be able to
throw the football for the
offense to improve. � The
Tigers responded with their
best offensive performance
of the season Friday night
rushing for 184 yards and
passing for 179. The
defensive unit showed they
could play physical, smash
mouth football against a
tough Wewa team. .The
combination of a balanced
offensive attack and a
tough defense produced a
39-27 win over Wewa
improving the Tigers to 3-0
overall and 1-0 in District 2
Class 1-A.
"The pass completions
were .the difference in the
game," coach Jordan said
Monday. "Our offense is
getting better every week.
We didn't pick up some
blitzes against Wewa but
we made some big plays
when we needed to."
Quarterback Charles
Buggs, Jr. had his best per-
formance of the year
against Wewa connecting of


7 of 11 passes for 179
yards, 2 TD's and 1 inter-
ception. Leon Broxton had
a big night with five recep-
tions for 102 yards includ-
ing a 31 yard TD. Darren
'Huff had one catch but it
covered 40 yards for a
touchdown. Jawon Mosley
caught one ball for 37
yards.
Princeton Grant led the
Tiger ground assault
against the Gators with 117
yards on 10 carries includ-
ing touchdown sprints of 46
and 43 yards. Alexander
Garrett had one long run of
28 yards and Buggs picked
up 22 tough yards on 13
carries including a touch-
down from the Wewa 1.
Highly touted Wewa
runningback Chance
Knowles managed 82 yards
on 27 carries and scored
one TD from the Tiger 3
yard line. Wewa had 158
yards rushing but only 38
thru the air against an
aggressive, hard hitting
Tiger defense.
Alexander Garrett led
the Tigers with 13 tackles.
Byron Hall was in on 11
tackles including 1 sack


Leon Broxton caught five passes for 102 yards including a
31 yard TD. Broxton also returned an interception for a TD.


Princeton Grant scored on runs of 40 and 43 yards.


and 3 tackles for loss.
Jawon Mosley was in on 9
tackles including 2.5 for
loss. Leon Broxton had 8
tackles followed by Frankie
Murrell with 7, Dowling
Lee was in on 6 tackles
with 2.5 for loss. Brandon
Smith had 5 tackles and
Tony Maynor accounted

BY BLOUNTSTOWN TIGER "
HEAD COACH GREG JORDAN


September 25th was a
good Friday in my book.
We were able to have a
complete Homecoming of
activities and won the foot-
ball game over a tough
Wewa team.
It was also a good week
for the BHS Homecoming
King Princeton Grant, who
is also our tailback. I told
him after he was crowned
we needed a big perform-
ance on the field and he
delivered with two touch-
downs.
I can't talk about big
performances without men-
tioning Leon Broxton who
also had a huge game for
the Tigers. Leon had an
interception for a score and
a catch for a score and sev-
eral other BIG catches to
keep drives going during
the game.
That was a good clean,
physical, hard hitting high
school football game. I told
people all week that would
listen that .Wewa had a
very physical football team
and that we were in for a


four quarter fight. The
game was tied with nine
minutes to go when we
finally took the lead for
good. Wewa got the ball
back and was driving and
fumbled on our 40 yard line
and Jawon Mosley pounced
on it for a big play for us.
Charles Buggs Jr. and Leon
Broxton had a huge 3rd
and long pass play conver-
sion to keep our last drive
going. With good blocking
up front, Prince was able to
find a crack and went 45
yards for a back breaking
TD to seal the outcome
with about two minutes left
in the game.
After three weeks this
team is starting to maybe
find it's identity. Being in
tough games the last two
weeks has made them a
better team. It's made
them work through tough
times TOGETHER and
build some team chemistry.
Winning is a cure for any-
thing that ails anyone. This
team will need good chem-
istry as we go on the road


for the next two weeks
against Graceville this
week and then to West
Gadsden next week.
The Wewa game was a
good win for this team, now
it's time to move to our next
opponent, the Graceville
Tigers. It's been a long time
since we have played
Graceville. This group of
kids have probably never
played them in any level.
They have a huge offensive
and defensive line and have
very good skill players on
the perimeter. They have a
225 pound fullback that
gets the ball a lot. We will
have to play well on the
fronts to have a chance in
this game. Graceville is 1-2,
but the two losses were to
larger schools, Marianna
and Bratt Northview. They
will be ready to take on the
Blountstown Tigers and
defend their home turf. It
should be another fun and
exciting game!
Hope to seee you in
Graceville this Friday
night!! GO TIGERS!!!


for 3. Roger Abbott, Paul
Mosley, Jason Money,
Timmy Giradot and Ryan
McIntyre were all in on
defensive plays for the
Tigers.
Blountstown scored
twice in the first quarter on


a 40 yard TD pass from
Buggs to Huff and a 50
yard pass interception
return by Broxton. Grant
scored on a 40 yard dash in
the second quarter.
With a minute left
before halftime, Buggs
fumbled and Wewa ran the
ball in from the 40 to tie
the game at 21-21 at half-
time. The Tigers took a
27-21 lead when Buggs
connected with Broxton for
31 yards and a TD.
Wewa tied the game at
27 -before the Tigers put
together a good drive
capped off by a one yard
Buggs sneak.' Grant broke
the game open with a 43


yard dash with 2:21 left in
the game.
The Tigers will travel to
Graceville Friday night for
a non-district game.
Graceville, coached by for-
mer Blountstown coach
Todd Wertenberger, has
beaten Franklin County
and lost to Marianna and
Bratt Northview.

Wind Project
By: Marissa Coleman & Danny
Quattlebaum
On 'Iesday, September 22, Mrs. Alday's sec-
ond grade class conducted a scientific investigation
to go along with Freedom Week.
They made patriotic "wind socks" to see the dif-
ferent effects of winds. They learned how bigger
winds,.called gusts, made their wind socks go high-
er and farther when they.threw it in the air. They
had a great time and learned a lot about wind.

Teacher Feature
by Makynzie O'Bryan
It is surprising to me
how much. you are able to
learn about a person in
thirty minutes just by ask-
ing the right questions. I
had. the opportunity to
interview one of the most
creative and talented
teachers I have had the
pleasure of knowing, Mrs.
Cherie Price White.
A native of Calhoun
County, she fondly recalls
playing in the sand pile
with her sister, Janet, and
dreaming of becoming a
June Tahylor dancer on the
Jackie Gleason show. In
school, she enjoyed Chorus,
Band, and English and was
involved in many clubs and
activities. After graduating
from Blountstown High
School and getting married
in 1975, Mrs. White went
on to earn her Associates
degree from. Chipola and
her Bachelor's degree from
FSU. She and her husband
of 34 years have two chil-
dren, Chris 28, and Sarah
Lynn, 9.
Mrs. White has been
teaching at Blountstown
High School for twenty-
seven years, with only one
teacher having taught
longer. When asked why
she chose the field of edu-
cation she stated, "I want-
ed to make a difference in
children's lives." Mrs.
White is currently teaching
reading at BHS and is a
very involved Junior Class
Sponsor.
The first thing she does
after getting home from a
long day at work is take her
shoes off. When her televi-
sion is on at home, usually
it is tuned in to HGTV, as
she enjoys working in her
yard. Some of her other
hobbies include music, her
favorite book being a piano
book. Mrs. White has visit-
ed Mexico and if she had
the chance she would love
to visit Italy or Germany.
Mrs. Cherie White is a


CHERIE WHITE


woman of great knowledge,
and a woman with much
strength. She is a woman
with the ability to care for
every student that passes
through her class, and to
start a conversation about
anything. I left her class-
room with a smile on my
face and a light heart.

to 'Remember


Tim Adams

Why do we have funerals?
"THE FUNERAL...Helps
confirm the reality and
finality of death...Provides a
climate for mourning and the
expression of grief...Allows
the sorrows of one to
become the sorrows of
many... Is one of the few
times love is given and not
expected in return...Is a
vehicle for the community to
pay its
respects... Encourages the
affirmation of religious
faith...Is a celebration of a
life that has been lived as
well as a sociological
statement that a death has
occurred."
The funeral will help you
begin to heal and wil
provide you with great
comfort and satisfaction ir
the months and years tc
come.

Did you know that the bathtub was invented in 1850?
The telephone was invented in 1875. Just think, you could
have sat in the bathtub for 25 years without the telephone
ringing.
It never fails, does it? Just when you think you will
have some peace and quiet, the phone rings, someone
comes to the door, etc., etc., just anything to interfere with
our. quiet time. Peace is a precious commodity and it is,so
elusive.
Dante', the great poet of the Renaissance, was exiled
from his home in Florence, Italy. Depressed by this cruel
turn of fate, he decided to walk from Italy to Paris, where
he could study philosophy in an effort to find a clue to the
meaning of life. In his travels, Dante' found himself a
weary pilgrim. He was forced to knock at the door of
Santa Croce Monastery to find refuge for the night. A
grouchy brother was finally awakened. He came to the
door, flung it open and in a gruff voice asked, "What do you
want??" Dante' answered in a single word, "Peace!"
H.G. Wells was one of the best educated, most creative
men of our time. He was also an atheist. He wrote in his
autobiography, "I cannot adjust my life to secure any fruit-
ful peace. Here I am at 65 still seeking for peace, but
peace is just a hopeless dream."
Peace is a beautiful word. Yet it is a word that is a
stranger to many people today. The fast paced lives that
many lead provides many material possessions, but it does
not provide us with peace. Stress is our constant compan-
ion, and anxiety haunts our dreams. The disciples of Jesus
were not the only ones to long for peace in a raging storm.
Where do you find peace? That is the longing of every
heart. The experience of the disciples is an experience we
will all have eventually - qut in a boat in a terrible storm
and no peace in sight.
The artist, Rembrandt, painted a picture titled, "Storm
on the Sea of Galilee." If you look at the painting careful-
ly, you will find there are 14 men in the boat. There are
the 12 disciples and Jesus = 13. Who is the 14th passen-
ger in the boat? It is Rembrandt himself. We all know
what it means to be afraid.
Sometimes it is hard to hold on and sing when your
whole world is shaking and coming apart.
Linda Sledge recalls a day from her childhood. She was
playing in the sand at the beach. Suddenly a great wave
came and knocked her off her feet and swept her into the
ocean. She managed to get up, but the sand was flowing
out from under her feet. Then another wave struck and
she had no footing. She cried out. She thought she was
doomed. Then two strong arms lifted her to safety. "Don't
be afraid," her father said. "I have been watching you all
the time."
I believe those are Christ's words to us today. "Don't be
afraid. I have been watching you all the time."

The County Record, SEPTEMBER 30, 2009, Page 12

Liberty County leads state


with lowest unemployment


Once again, Liberty
County leads the state of
Florida with the lowest
unemployment rate of 5.6
percent, followed by
Monroe and Walton
Counties at 6.5 percent.
All five of the Counties
that make up the Chipola.
Regional Workforce Board
had a small decrease in
their unemployment rate,
with Washington County
showing the largest reduc-
tion of .7 percent.
According to Florida's
Agency for Workforce
Innovation, Florida's sea-
sonally adjusted unemploy-
ment rate for August. 2009
is 10.7 percent. This repre-
sents 984,000 jobless out of
a labor force of 9,194,000.
The unemployment rate is
nearly unchanged for the
revised July rate of 10.8
percent and is up 4.2 per-
centage points from the
August 2008 rate. The
state's unemployment rate
is 1.0 percentage point
higher that the national
rate of 9.7 percent. The
last time the unemploy-
ment rate was higher that
the past three months was

October 1975 when it was
11.0 percent.
Florida's total nonagri-
cultural employment in
August 2009 is 7,348,400,
representing a job loss of
372,700, or -4.8 percent
compared to August 2008.
This is steeper that the
national rate of decline for
August which is -4.3 per-
cent over the year. The
August 2009 job loss con-
tinues the trend of annual
declines that began in
August 2007. The down-
turn started with declines
in construction jobs, but has
now spread to almost all
other major industries.
Based on the Florida
Economic Estimating
Conference, held July 17,
Florida's job market is


expected to start improving
in the second quarter of
2010 as the job growth rate
turns positive. Current
forecast project a job
growth rate of 1.5 percent
in the second quarter of
next year.

to escape a

ticket: knitting
Low enforcement officers
have heard every excuse in
the book when they pull folks
over for speeding, but Alice
Nell Leonard has found the
secret to getting out of a tick-

for your trooper.
Actually, Mrs. Alice Nell
was just taking a rest while
waiting for the BHS home-
coming parade to begin, but
we couldn't resist snapping
her photo. Not sure if stie's
knitting or needle :cinling but
we know whatever she's mak- '!
ing will be beautiful! � ' ' .
