GET COUNTED


Census 2010 is just weeks away;


residents are urged to participate


BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
The 2010 Census will
be getting underway in
just a few short weeks and
Calhoun County residents
are urged to respond when
forms are received.
According to Kristy
Halley Terry, Calhoun
County's Chamber of
Commerce Director who
is serving as the local lia-
son for the 2010 Census,
forms wills be mailed out


in January and everyone
is encouraged to 'complete'
and return the. question-
naire by the end of March.
After that date, Census
representatives will be
going door to door to
acquire the necessary
information on households
that haven't responded.
According to informa-
tion from the Census
Bureau, there are only 10
questions on the form with
an estimated completion
time of 10 minutes..


Gathered once every
10 years,-the census popu-
lation totals determine
which states gain or lose
representation in
Congress. It also deter-
mines the amount of state
and federal funding com-
munities receive over the
course of the decade. 2010
Census data will directly
affect how more than $4
trillion is allocated to local,
state and tribal govern-
ments over the next 10
years. In order for this


funding allocation to be
accomplished fairly and
accurately, the goal of the
decennial census is to
count everybody, count
them only once, and count
them in' the right place.
The facts gathered in the
census also help shape
decisions for the rest of the
decade about public
'health, neighborhood
improvements, trans-
portation, education, sen-
ior services and much
more.

Boyd backs bill to


help small business


Congressman Allen
Boyd (D-North Florida)
recently took steps to
ensure that small business-
es have the tools and pro-
tections necessary to thrive
in challenging times by sup-
porting the Small Business
Financing and Investment
Act in the U.S. House of
Representatives.
"Small businesses pro-
vide countless jobs and
serve as engines of econom-
ic growth for communities
throughout North Florida,"
said Congressman Boyd.
"This bill will make credit
more accessible for small
businesses and provide
added protections when
Mother Nature strikes,
which is particularly impor-
tant to North Florida busi-
nesses."
The Small Business
Financing and Investment
Act eliminates fees on


In an effort to combat
unlicensed activity, the
Department of Business
and Professional
Regulation's Division of
Regulation is planning
statewide unlicensed activi-
ty sweeps and stings during
the first week of November.
This effort is part of the
division's three-tiered
approach to combat unli-
censed activity through
education, prevention and
enforcement.
Investigators will per-
form operations across
Florida in an effort to nab
unlicensed individuals. In
addition to enforcement
activities, the department
announces statewide
enforcement operations in
an effort to educate unli-
censed individuals about
license requirements and
encourage licensure.
"Statewide unlicensed
activity operations are an
important part of getting
the word out about the dan-
gers of unlicensed activity,"
said Secretary Charles W.


Small Business
Administration (SBA) loans
and raises loan amounts in
order to help small busi-
nesses access larger
amounts of capital than was
previously available. The
SBA application process
has also been streamlined
to eliminate cumbersome
processes.
In addition, the legisla-
tion creates a new grant
program to help companies
recover from natural disas-
ters and provides a one-
year deferment on SBA
disaster loans. It also pro-
vides a 100 percent federal
guarantee on loans made to
veteran-owned companies.
The Small Business
Financing and Investment
Act (H.R. 3854) recently
passed the House of
Representatives 389-32.
The bill now awaits action
in the Senate.


Drago. "Announcing the
operations before they
begin gives unlicensed indi-
viduals an opportunity to
think twice before breaking
the law and reminds con-
sumers only to hire licensed
professionals."
The Division of
Regulation will conduct
sweeps and stings from the
eight district offices around
the state. To perform these
operations, they will part-
ner with other agencies,
including local law enforce-
ment, building and code
enforcement departments,
State Attorney's offices,
and the Florida
Department of Financial
Services' Division of
Workers' Compensation.
Specific locations will not
be disclosed at this time;
however, an extensive sum-
mary, will be distributed at
the conclusion of the opera-

Workeforce Dean Bud
Riviere said the Chipola

and related programs are
"well positioned to meet
the needs of an emerging,

related courses that will
serve as the foundation to
train this foreseeable, need-

Pee-Wee's Crush Port
St. Joe, 24-0
It was a tale of two
halves in Saturday's
match-up between the
Liberty County Pee-Wee
Dawgs and the Port St. Joe
Buccaneers.
Both teams came into
the game undefeated in the
Big Bend Youth Football
League but only one would
stay that way. The Dawgs
played field position with
the Buccaneers in the first
half with and neither team
scored. The second half
was a different story.
Kenny Godwin took the
second half kickoff back 60
yards before being pushed
out of bounds at the Bucs
20 yard line. J.J. House
then took the handoff from
quarterback Will Hosford
and raced twenty yards for
the games first score.
House then added the two
point conversion that put
the Dawgs up 8-0.
After a turnover on the
Bucs next possession,
Liberty Courity took over
at mid field and two plays
later Jarrod Beckwith took
a reverse around the left
end for what appeared as
another score. However, a
penalty nullified the touch-
down and brought the ball
back to the 35 yard line.
After the penalty it took the
Dawgs only three plays to
find the end-zone as House
took a sweep the distance
for the score. Garrett
Swier took a dive play up
the middle for the 2-point
'conversion, and the made
the score 16-0. Excellent
defense held the much big-
ger .Port St. Joe squad in
check for the rest of the 3rd
quarter. With six minutes
left in the game Liberty
took over on the Buccaneer
45 yard line and on 3rd
down QB Micah McCaskill
connected with a wide open
Jake Bunkley who out ran,
defenders for the game's
final touchdown. Swier
then added another 2-point
conversion that made the
score 24-0. The defense,
led by DJ Pittman, Garret
Swier, Cameron Parrish,
Will Hosford, and William
Hayes, played excellent for
the Dawgs who shut out
Port St. Joe for the first
time this year.
With the win, the Pee-
Wee squad moves to 5-0 on
the season and are in first
place in the league. The
Dawgs faced the
Chattahoochee Yellow
Jackets Tuesday night in
league play and are gearing
up for the Blountstown
Tigers next Tuesday.
Updates for the
Chattahoochee game will
follow in next week's news.


Tiny Mite's Lose
Close One Against
Port St. Joe
'The Liberty County
Tiny Mite team battled
Port St. Joe for all four
quarters in Saturday's
match-up that saw defense
control most of the game.
With the first half com-
ing to a close the Dolphins
were clinging to a 6-0 lead.


Only 7 seconds remained
on the clock when, on 3rd
down, the Port St. Joe half-
back broke though the
Bulldog line and raced 20
yards for the score and
went into the half leading

Tigers face Liberty Co. for district title


The Blountstown Tigers
put themselves exactly
where they wanted to be
last Friday night by beating
Franklin County to remain
the only unbeaten team in
District 2 Class 1A. The
41-0 win improved the
Tigers to 7-1 overall and 4-
0 in district play setting up
a huge district contest with
neighbor and arch rival
Liberty County at Bowles
Field Friday night.
A win over the Bulldogs
and the Tigers are District
Champs. A win by Liberty
Co. would force some type
of playoff between the
Tigers, Bulldogs and Port
St. Joe. Port St. Joe hand-
ed the Bulldogs their only
district loss a few weeks
back. The Tigers gave the
Sharks their only district
loss two weeks ago in
Blountstown.
"Our kids have worked
hard al year to reach this
point and they know
they're facing a good
Liberty Co. team," coach
Greg Jordan said Monday.
"Both team will be ready to
play."
Jordan said he felt there
wasn't a lot of difference
this year between the
Tigers, Bulldogs and
Sharks. "All three teams
play well on defense and
have moved the ball effec-
tively on offense," Jordan
noted. "We can't turn the
ball over against Liberty
Co. We need good long
drives to keep their offense
off the field and we'll need
another strong defensive
effort and limit them from

big plays."
Liberty Co. is led 'by
senior quarterback
Terrance Evans and
McCray brothers, Kevin
and Keith in the backfield.
They have been effective
this season running an
option attack mixing in
some passing when needed.
"They're good on
defense. They run three
down linemen and five line-
backers and run stunts
from everywhere," Jordan
added.
Hopefully the Tigers will
continue the defensive
effort they've turned in the
past two weeks against Port
St. Joe and Franklin Co.
After holding the explosive
Shark attack to 135 total
yards two weeks ago,, the
Tigers held Franklin Co. to
a net -15 yards rushing and
30 yards passing. The
Tigers rushed for 224 yards
and passed for 103 building
a 34-0 lead late in the'third
quarter.
Princeton Grant rushed
for 95 yards on 13 carries
and had a 16 yard touch-
down run. Darren Huff
added 59 yards on 8 carries


including a 16 yard TD
run. Alexander Garrett
had 3 carries for 31 yards
and .scored on an 8 yard
run. Jawon Mosley rushed
40 yards o 7 carries.
Quarterback Charles
Buggs, Jr. scored on a 1
yard dive. Buggs complet-
ed 4 of 10 passes for 103
yards including touchdowns
of 77 and 3 yards to Leon
Broxton.
Jason Money led the
Tiger defense with 6 tack-
les including one sack and 3
tackles for loss. Jawon
Mosley had six tackles with
two tackles for loss.
Dowling Lee had 5 tackles
with 3 for losses. Paul
Mosley, Frankie Murrell
and Ryan McIntyre each
had ' 4 tackles. Leon
Broxton and Stafford
Dawson had 3 tackles each.
Cavon Cox, Roger Abbott,
D.J. Brunson, Alexander
Garrett . and Corey
McClellan also made
defensive ' plays against
Franklin Co.

The Tigers would love
nothing more than to win
Friday night, be district
champs keep the Bulldogs.
from making the playoffs.
The Bulldogs must win to
force a playoff and keep
their district championship
and playoff hopes alive.
Tiger fans need to fill the
stands at Bowles Field
Friday night and make
plenty of noise for the
Tigers. They deserve your
support for the outstanding
season they've put together
in 2009.


Princeton Grant (2) led the Tigers with 95 yards against Franklin County.


Darren Huff dives for extra yards. Huff scored on a 16 yard run against Franklin Co.


Alexander Garrett had 31 yards rushing on 3 carries and scored on an 8 yard run.





BY BLOUNTSTOWN TIGER

HEAD COACH GREG JORDAN .Ow


The Tigers moved to 7-1
overall and 4-0 in district
play with a 41-0 win at
Franklin County. Simply put
the Tigers need a Win at
home this week vs. Liberty
County and we will be dis-
trict champions. A Liberty
win would force a three way
shootout. between St. Joe,
Liberty and Blountstown.
Back to the Franklin
County game. First things
first, hats off to the defense
for that performance.
Franklin ran 30 total plays
for 15 yards. They had 30
rushing yards arid 30 pass-
ing yards on the night. Our
defense is playing better
each week and will need to
be this coming week.
Offensively, the Tigers


were able to. get big plays
both on the ground and
through the air. Buggs was
4-10 for 105 yards with at
least 3 dropped passes and
2 TD passes. Rushing wise,
the Tigers racked up 224
yards on 38 rushes for a 6
yard per carry average. We
had 327 total yards on 48
plays with a running clock
much of the second half. The
Tigers had only one turnover
and six penalties for 45
yards. We played a pretty
complete game with offense
and defense both getting
good efforts.
District championship
showdown this week at
HOME against our old rival
from across the river, the
Liberty County Bulldogs.


Liberty comes into the game
with a 7-1 record with their
only loss to St. Joe, 20-14.
The Tigers come in at 7-1
with a loss to Marianna.
Liberty defeated Marianna
earlier in the year and we
defeated St.Joe a couple
weeks ago. It's all about
matchups each week, that's
why you play the games.
This should be another fun
and exciting game to watch.
Can we slow down the
spread option attack of the
Bulldogs? Can we move the
ball against their stingy
defense? All these questions
will be answered on Friday,
November 6, at 7:00 cst.

We need a HUGE home
crowd in full support of this
Tiger team that's on the
verge of doing something no
one gave them a chance of
when the season started!
That's to win a district cham-
pionship here at home in the
last home regular season
game on senior night. See
ya at THE GAME!!
GO TIGERS!!!

Dr. Henderson is featured teacher


Teacher Feature
by Tarak Amin
Dr. Quentin Henderson
is an individual who has
great knowledge in teach-
ing and has been a teacher
since August of 1988. Any
individual who has had Dr.
Henderson as a teacher in
the science field (Physics,
A&P, Chemistry, etc...) can
tell you the passion that he
possesses for teaching stu-
dents. I recently had the
privilege of interviewing Dr.
Henderson and in the
process I learned that Dr.
Henderson is a very well-
educated individual.

Dr. Henderson actually
attended five different col-
leges/universities after
graduating from Childress
High School in Texas. Dr.
Henderson was a Naval
Flight Officer, earning his
flight wings on the 27th of
May, 1968. He flew a P-3
Orion for four years. He
pursued his goals of master-
ing Religion and Medicine
by further educating him-
self by attend g Texas
A&M f6io'' even yea's,
McMurry University for
three and a half years,
SMU for half a year, FSU
for two and a half years,
and Chipola College for two
and a half years. After
going to so many
colleges/universities he
earned his DVM as a certi-
fied veterinarian and along
the way he earned his BA
from McMurry Univ. and
his BS .from Texas A&M.
He was still motivated to
become a teacher. Dr.
Henderson credits his 11th
grade high school
Vocational Agricultural
teacher with influencing
him to become a teacher.
When asked whether or not
Dr. Henderson enjoys his
job as a veterinarian more
than being a teacher, he
simply exclaims that he
loves both of his jobs equal-
ly. ,
Dr. Henderson moved to
Blountstown, Florida
because of his love of the
Apalachicola National
Forest and also because
there are many of his wife's
relatives around
Blountstown. Having been
married since May 1969,
he loves his family and tells
me that the most precious
gift he has ever received is
his family of four daughters.
Dr. Henderson's four
daughters (Caralleen,
Michele, Janet, and
Sharon) have all graduated
from Blountstown High

Dr. Quentin Henderson

School and are all currently
working in Florida. Dr.
Henderson has a total of 6
grandchildren - Caralleen,
Michele, and Janet each
have two children.
Caralleen is a Physical
Therapist. in Tallahassee,
Florida; Michele is a
Registered Nurse who
works in Jackson County;
Janet is a 1st grade teacher
.at Blountstown
Elementary School; and
Sharon ." woik.. 'at,
Blountstown Drugs as a
Pharmacist Technician and
is also a certified public
school teacher. The most
fascinating fact that I dis-
covered about . Dr.
Henderson through inter-
viewing him was that his
wife was a direct descen-
dant of Pierre El' Enfant
(the engineer for George
Washington). After learn-
ing that his favorite hobbies
are driving a tractor and
'managing grass pastures, it
was no surprise to me when
Dr. Henderson said that his
favorite genre bf music is
mainly country western of
the 1950's.

Knowing that Doc is a
very well-rounded and edu-.
cated man, it's obvious that
he enjoys reading. Without
hesitation, Dr. Henderson
told me that his favorite
book was an historical
account written by Stephen
E. Ambrose called D-Day.
After interviewing Dr.
Henderson, I as a student,
was able to learn and better
understand one of the most
influential and friendly
teachers at Blountstown
High School.

Last week was Red

Apalachicola River floodplain--



changes will be meeting topic :


The Magnolia Chapter
of the Florida Native Plant
Society invites the public to
the upcoming meeting on
Thursday, November 5,
featuring speaker Helen M.
Light, U.S. Geological
Survey, retired. The.
Magnolia Chapter will also
lead a field trip to Torreya
State Park on Saturday,
November 7.


Ms. Light will present
results of her and others'
research showing that
Apalachicola River levels
have been declining for
more than 50 years, with
consequences to forests and
streams throughout its
extensive floodplain.
Swamps and bottomland
forests have shifted to a
drier mix of tree species, a


trend expected to continue
for many more decades.
The result is that important
floodplain trees such as
cypress and tupelo are
being replaced by upland
trees. Since 1975, there"
has been less flow in spring
and summer as a result of
water use, flow regulation,

Roulhac hooked up with
the speedy Shamon Mosley
on a 65 yard TD pass that
brought the score to 12-6.
Liberty County's
defense played strong and
managed to keep PSJ's
mis-direction offense out of
the enzone again for the
rest of the game. The
Bulldogs took over with
under a minute remaining
in the game in a late come-
back effort to tie but the
Dolphin defense stiffened
and held the Liberty
County offense on 4 downs
to close the game. The
Bulldog defense was led by
big plays by Cody Arnold,
Gunter Barber, Jarkeavis
Bess, Todd Anthony Polver,
and Trey Watson.
With the loss the Liberty
County Tiny-Mites move
to 3-2 on the season.

County team scored it's
only touchdown on a run
from QB Lane McCormick.
Missed tackles accounted
for most of the big plays
and the touchdowns by
Port St. Joe. However, the
Pups had many bright spots
throughout the game and
improved with every snap.
Alex Valdez led the defense
and plays by Cole Brandon,
Tucker Singletary, Tony
Zuniga, Charlie Burns, and
Joseph Finuff showed atti-
tude and determination as
the Pups never quit playing
hard:
The Pups played
