served in World War II. Often referred to as the greatest generation, the men
who fought during this time should be thanked for many of the freedoms
we enjoy today We will be featuring those who served during WWII

A longtime teacher at
Blountstown schools is fac-
ing several charges follow-
ing a single vehicle crash
Saturday night.
Billy Ray Jones, 58, has
been charged with DUI,
DUI with property dam-
age, leaving the scene of
an accident, and resisting
arrest without violence.
According to the
Florida Highway Patrol,
Trooper Wes Harsey
responded to an accident
at the intersection of SR
71 and Oglesby Road at
10:36 p.m. where an aban-
doned vehicle was found in
a ditch. Calhoun County
Sheriff's Deputy John
Scheetz, Altha Police
Officer Ricky Mayo, and


FHP Sgt. J.D. Johnson
were already on the scene.
The vehicle was straddling
the west ditch facing west
in a flower bed owned by
Oglesby Plants
International. An empty
Bud Light beer box was
sitting in the parking lot
close to the vehicle.
Sgt. Johnson told
Trooper Harsey that the
driver had left the scene
and contacted AAA to
come tow the vehicle.
While awaiting the arrival
of Mallory Towing, a car
pulled up in the parking lot
and the female driver, later
identified as Jones' daugh-
ter, got out and stated she
had called AAA, that the
vehicle was hers, and she
was trying to turn around

claims



Altha



man
BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
An Altha man has
become the first Calhoun
County fatality from the
H1N1 "swine flu" virus.
Marcus Dale Whiddon,
25, passed away Friday at
Bay Medical Center.
According to the Calhoun
County Health
Department, he died of
complications from the
H1N1 virus.
"Our thoughts and
prayers go out to the family
and friends of this very
unfortunate individual,"
says Dr. Eugene
Charbonneau, Health
Department Administrator.
According to Dr.
Charbonneau, it is believed
that Whiddon, who owned
and operated Gulf Coast
Construction, contracted
the virus while in Duval
County. "He came back
and went to Jackson
County Hospital and ended
up on a ventilator about a
month ago," Dr.
Charbonneau remarks.
"He was moved to Bay
Medical after his kidneys
failed."
Many people would
think the elderly would be
more susceptible to fatali-
ties from H1N1, but Dr.
Charbonneau says the
opposite is true. "We're not
as worried with seniors,
because- in their long lives
they've probably acquired
a virus similar to HIN1 and
developed antibodies which
help them fight it," he
explains.
In a young healthy per-
son who hasn't encountered
a similar virus, their
immune system tries to
attack H1N1 on it's own
with a vengeance. Dr.
Charbonneau compared it
to a military attack - you go
in to kill the enemy, but
wipe out a lot of good stuff
in the process. And when
your system is recovering
after the attack, complica-
tions can develop.
"[Whiddon] was a

County send a message to

our morals, our beliefs, our
integrity just so we can vote
locally, for something that
we don't believe in.

keep the doors open.
Florida Prime employs
some 200 whom mostly live
in Gadsen, Liberty and
Calhoun counties. This
helps the local economies as
you are well aware. We are
now facing the likelihood of
joining the unemployment
numbers.
We see government
stimulus money being spent
on road work and find it
hard to believe that there is
no government money
available for lending.
Money spent on road work
is not recoverable. Money
lent to small businesses has
a better chance of being
returned. Road work is
continually funded and
depends on your con-
stituents' tax dollars. Why
not spend at least a portion
of the stimulus money to
revitalize local small busi-
nesses.
Quincy Farms used to be
the largest employer in
Gadsen County. I do not
see why this cannot happen
again as the economy slow-
ly recovers. Your help is
urgently needed to keep the
doors open at Florida,
Prime.
Thank you in advance
for your assistance. I 'look
forward to reading of your
success in our local news
papers.

Calling rising healthcare
costs the single largest
threat to our country's eco-
nomic future, Congressman
Allen Boyd (b-North
Florida) has expressed his
intent to vote against the
healthcare legislation in the
U.S. House of
Representatives and urged
his colleagues to continue
working toward a fiscally
responsible bill that would
lower insurance premiums
for all Americans and drive
down the, overall cost of
healthcare services.
"While the House bill
does take some positive
steps toward increasing
coverage and reforming
insurance regulations, it
simply falls short when it
comes to lowering health-
care costs for North Florida
families and businesses,"
said Congressman Boyd.
"Improving our healthcare
system is of utmost impor-
tance to me, but meaning-
ful reform must reduce the
skyrocketing cost of health-
care services. Until I have
confidence that a health-
care reform bill will effec-
tively curb rising health-
care costs and ease the bur-
densome pressure millions
of Americans feel when
paying their healthcare.
premiums or doctor bills, I
cannot in good faith support
this bill."
The non-partisan


HIN1 virus continued


strong, husky guy and he
had a strong, husky
immune system and that's
ultimately what will' kill
people with this," says Dr.
Charbonneau.
Whiddon leaves behind
his wife, Cassie Bates
Whiddon, and young son,
Triton Whiddon, of Altha.
His complete obituary
appears on page 10 of this
issue.
"The Calhoun County
Health Department will
continue to-work with' it's
local, state and national
partners to keep the' citi-
zens of the county protect-
ed from the virus to the
best of our abilities," Dr.
Charbonneau stresses.
Those most at risk are
between the ages of 6
months and 24 years. All
Calhoun County school
children will have the swine
flu shots available to them
and permission slips were
sent home on report card
day last month. "We've had
a number of parents who
have wanted to be with
their kids when they get the


shot," says Dr.
Charbonneau. "We will
accommodate them and
they can bring them by the
health department, but we,
really urge them to get the
shots at school. Everything
will flow smoother and we
have a documentation sys-
tem all worked out."
There has been a delay
in receiving the vaccine
from the Center for Disease
Control, but it's expected to
arrive later this week or


early next week. In the
meantime, everyone is
urged to wash your hands,
stay home if you're sick,
and avoid close- contact
with people who appear
sick. Symptoms include
fever, cough, sore throat,
runny or stuffy nose, body
aches, headaches, chills,
fatigue, diarrhea, and vom-
iting. A hotline for H1Ni
questions has been set up
and the toll-free number is

Member FDIC I


Congressional Budget
Office has indicated 'that
the House bill does little to
reduce the escalating cost
of healthcare services,
meaning that healthcare
costs will continue to rise at
unsustainable rates and
insurance premiums will
continue to plague hard-
working Americans.
Congressman Boyd
believes it is possible to
meet the healthcare needs
of Americans while at the
same time reducing the
cost of our healthcare serv-
ices. Responsible, afford-
able healthcare reform
must increase coverage to
more Americans; preserve
patient choice; reduce the
costs of medical procedures
and services; and not add to
our federal budget deficit.
"I have spent my years
in public service working to
improve access to quality,
affordable healthcare for all
Americans," Boyd .stated.
"I voted to reauthorize the
State Children's Health
Insurance Plan three times
in the last two years. I
brought $17 billion to
Florida to improve commu-
nity health centers, veter-
ans' outpatient clinics,
healthcare workforce train-
ing, and health IT initia-
tives through the federal
stimulus package. And I
formed the District
Healthcare Council in 2005


so our local communities
can work together to
improve healthcare in
North Florida."
Boyd concluded, "My
vote against H.R. 3962, the
House's first attempt at a
healthcare bill, is not a vote
against responsible reform.
Rather, it is a signal that
our work in Congress is not
yet complete. Reducing
the cost of h'ealtlicare serv-
ices must be the focus of
any reform package, and I
will continue working, as
I've always done, to fix
what's wrong with our
healthcare system,, to con-
tinue what's right, and to
ensure Americans have
access to affordable, quality
coverage they need."
In 'light of reports that
Allen Boyd will oppose
health care reform, Senator
Al Lawson issued the fol-
lowing statement:
"I am greatly disap-
pointed in Allen Boyd's
decision to join. with
Washington Republicans in
opposing real health care
reform. Not only is Allen
Boyd on the wrong side of
history, but he is on the
wrong side of the 126,000
of his constituents who cur-
rently lack health care cov-
erage. The people of North
Florida deserve better than
this; the people of North
Florida deserve better than
Allen Boyd."

Kent Rogers and Nick
Young combined for 23 of
Altha's 37 points as the
Wildcats Basketball A
Team (1-1) defeated the
Tolar Bulldogs , 37-21, in
"The Den" last Thursday.
After a slow first quarter
start that produced a 4-4
tie, the Wildcats found their
rythym and tallied double
digit scores in the remaining
3 quarters.
It was a total team effort
as every Wildcat con-
tributed on offense. Kent
Rogers led the way with 13
points and his assists helped
Nick Young post 10 points.
PJ. Iler chalked up 6 points
and Kyler Dew added 4
points. Hunter Baggett and
Jordan Lawton each sank a
field goal.
Altha's B Team (0-2) fell
to Tolar's B Team, 10-4.
Brendan Dew netted both
of Altha's field goals.

In the second quarter
Roulhac threw his second
TD pass of the game when
he found a wide open
Jarkeavis Bess who raced
in from 12 yards out. After
another failed 2-point
attempt, the score was. 12-
0. Sneads was unable to
move the ball for much of
the first half until a running
back found a hole and
sprinted up the sideline for
their only score to bring the
Pirates within a touchdown
of the Bulldogs.
On the next Liberty
County possession, howev-
er, Roulhac hooked up
again with Mosley for a 65
yd TD pass that put the
game out of reach and the
tiny-Mites went ,into the
half with a 18-6 lead. The
Bulldogs would score again


late in the 4th quarter on a
QB sweep that led to the
final score of 26-6.
Jarkeavis Bess, Cpleb

defense that would not
allow the Pirates much

Liberty forces playoff with 19-6 win


The Blountstown vs.
Liberty County rivalry held
extra special meaning this
year as the two collided at
Bowles Field Friday night.
The Tigers were 4-0 in dis-
trict play while Liberty Co.
and Port St. Joe were each
at 3-1. A win over Liberty
Co. and the Tigers were
District Champs. A
Liberty Co. win would
force a three team playoff
in Bristol Monday after-
noon to determine the
District Championship and
the runners-up spot in the
post-season playoffs.
The Tigers and Bulldogs
battled the entire game,
but it was Liberty County's
running attack that finally
wore the Tiger defense
down and took control late
in the third quarter.
Quarterback Terrance
Evans rushed for 181 yards
while brothers Kevin and
Keith McCray ran .for 63
and 55 yards respectively.
The Bulldogs went ahead
13-6 late in the third quar-
ter and tacked on another
score in the forth to win the
I'


game, 19-6.
The Tigers got the
game's first big break when
PJ. Buggs scooped up a
fumble and returned it
deep into Bulldog territory.
A few plays later, Buggs
passed to Leon Broxton
who made a leaping catch
in the endzone. The PAT
by Alexander Garrett
sailed wide left and the
Tigers led 6-0.
In the second quarter,
Keith McCray tied the
game on a 30 yard scam-
per. Liberty Co. also
missed their extra point
kick and the game was tied
at 6-6.
Later in the first quarter,
a bad punt snap was recov-
ered by the Bulldogs but it
set the Tigers up at the
Bulldog 20 yard line. The
Tigers reached the Bulldog
2 but failed to get into the
endzone on 2 runs and 1
pass. Garrett's field goal
attempt again went left.
After the goal line stand,
it was apparent momentum
had shifted to the Bulldogs
and they held it for the


remainder of the game.
The Tigers got another
big break in the fourth
quarter when a Tiger punt
struck a Bulldog and was
recovered by the Tigers
near the Bulldog 35. The
Tigers could not take
advantage of the turnover.
The Tiger defense made
-several key stops on third
and fourth downs in the
third and fourth quarters
but the offense could not
move the ball on Liberty
Co. The Bulldogs held the
Tigers to 31 yards rushing
for the game and only 45
yards passing. Tiger quar-
terback PJ. Buggs had
three passes intercepted in
the game.
Liberty Co. finished the
night with 307 yards rush-
ing and completed one pass
for 5 yards.
The Tigers will make
the long trip to Baker
Friday night to finish the
regular season. Baker is
winless this year but close
in several games. The
Tigers are 7-2 overall and
finished 4-1-in the district.

BY BLOUNTSTOWN TIGER

HEAD COACH GREG JORDAN


A lot has happened since
the last "Coach's Corner"
article was written. We lost a
tough game to Liberty
County at home for the dis-
trict title that put us in a tie
breaker on Monday after-
noon atLiberty County. The
tie breaker was supposed to
be played at. 6:00 cst, but
because of the storm, the
game was moved up to
3:00 via conference call
with six parties involved.
Needless to say, it was a
whirlwind situation on
Monday to get ready.
Hats off to Liberty County
for winning the district after
losing to St. Joe earlier in the
year. They beat us in a head
to head matchup when they
had to win. The only way we
were able to make the play-
offs was by beating St. Joe
(twice), the regular season
and the shootout. If we had
not beaten St. Joe, then lost
to Liberty, we would have
been out of the playoffs. Our
Liberty County game was
going to have some type of
playoff implication.
Our players survived a


BIG disappointment when,
we lost at home last Friday
but showed some CHARAC-
TER by bouncing back to
beat St. Joe in the shootout
and having another shot at
Liberty. We beat St. Joe, 16-
6, in the first quarter and lost
.to Liberty, 21-0, in the final
quarter. Turnovers doomed
us in the Liberty quarter with
an interception returned for a
TD and a fumble inside our
30 yard line on our next
possession.
It's a shame that one of
the three teams in that
shootout will miss the play-
offs. St. Joe will finish the
year with an 8-2 record and
not make the post-season.
By finishing runner up in the
shootout we will travel to
Freeport in the first round of
the playoffs. On a very short
week of preparation, we will
travel to Baker for our final
regular season game of the
year. It's hard to believe this
is our last regular season
game.
This has been a fun
group of kids to coach and
we, as a coaching staff, look


forward to leading them into
the state playoffs!! Go
Tigers!!


A November tropical
storm forced a 3:00 p.m.
kickoff at Liberty County
High School Monday for a
playoff between Liberty'
Co., Port St. Joe' and
Blountstown to determine
the District 2 Class 1-A
Champions and runners-
up. All three teams had
finished their district sched-
ules with one loss each.
Liberty Co. had the best
overall record to earn home
field and the right to play
the winner of the
Blountstown vs. St. Joe
winner for the title.

Blountstown vs. St. Joe

The Tigers won the
opening kickoff and
returned to their own 32.
On third down and three,
quarterback P.J. Buggs
passed to Leon Broxton for
10 and a first down.
On their next third down
play, Buggs passed to
Broxton again. Broxton
made a great catch for a
gain of 29 and a first down
at the Shark 17. Two plays
later Buggs connected with
Broxton for the third time
in the drive for 15 yards
and a touchdown.
Electing to go for two
points, Buggs threw across
the middle for Broxton.
The ball was tipped up into
the air and caught by
Princeton Grant at the
back of the endzone to give
the Tigers an 8-0 lead with
7:33 left 'in the quarter.
On the legs of quarter-
back Calvin Pryor,. the
Sharks moved down field
and Pryor passed to Willie
Quinn from the. three for a
touchdown. On their two-
point play to tie the game,
Dowling Lee came up with
a huge play to sack Pryor in
the backfield to keep the
Tigers ahead, 8-6 with 3:55


left in the quarter.
St. Joe attempted a
short, high kick that was
pulled from the air by
Dowling Lee, his second
consecutive big play for the
Tigers.
It was key at this point
for the Tigers to pick up a
first down and run the
clock. After gaining one
first down, the Tigers faced
third and 11 when Grant-
took the handoff, got to the
sideline and raced 57 yards
for a touchdown. Another
two-point play gave the
Tigers a 16-6 lead they
would not surrender.

Blountstown vs.
Liberty County

For the second time in
four days the Blountstown
Tigers could clinch the
District Championship with
a win over Liberty County.
It didn't happen Friday-
night in Blountstown and it
wouldn't happen Monday
afternoon in Bristol.
The Bulldogs used their
aggressive defense 'and
strong running attack to
defeat the Tigers 21-0 in
the playoff quarter.
The Bulldogs took the
opening kickoff and on the
second play from scrim-
mage Kevin McCray raced
46 yards to the Tiger 17.
Seven running plays later,
Keith McCray slammed in
from the 4. Mike Lohse
added the extra point and
the Bulldogs had a 7-0.
lead.
After a 15 yard penalty
on Liberty Co. and a 12
yard run by Jawon Mosley,
the Tigers were at their
own 49, the closest they
would come to midfield in
the quarter of play. Two


. plays later, quarterback PJ.
Buggs' pass was intercept-
ed by Terrance Evans and
returned 55 yards for a
touchdown. Lohse's PAT
made the score 14-0.
Following the kickoff,
Buggs fumbled on second
down and Shane Rogowski
recovered for the Bulldogs
at the Tiger 22.
Keith McCray ran for
10, 10, and 5 yards on the
next three plays.
Quarterback ' Terrance
Evans scored from the
three. Lohse's kick gave
the Bulldogs more than
enough, 21-0.
With the win,- Liberty-
County claimed the District
Championship and will face
South Walton in the first
round of the playoffs in two
weeks. The Tigers will rep-
resent our district as run-
ners-up and will face the
District 1 Class 1-A
Champions in Freeport in
tvwo weeks. Liberty County
will end their regularsea-
son at Cottondale Friday
night while Blountstown
will make the long road trip
to Baker.
After a very good sea-
son, Port St. Joe will not
make the playoffs this year.
."They were just better
than us on the line. They
got off the ball fast and
blocked well. They have
two good runningbacks and
a quarterback who runs
their veer offense very
well," coach Greg Jordan
said Tuesday morning. "I
hope we can both represent
our district well in the play-
offs. Our kids have worked
very hard this year and
have had a great season.
They've shown a lot of
character as the season has
progressed."

Principal Barber announces honor

roll; Dana Ayers featured teacher


Teacher Feature
by Katie Strawn
I had a chance to sit
down and interview Ms.
Dana Ayers, a truly inspir-
ing teacher. She was able to
tell me a lot about her busy
life, from birth to the pres-
ent.
She never really had a
hometown. She was born
on Tyndall Air Force Base
in Panama City, .Florida.
Her father, Mr. James M.
Ayers,. was a Senior Master
Sergeant in the Air Force.
Both of her parents, James
and Dorothy Ayers, grew
up in Calhoun County, but
as she was growing up they
never lived here.
Along with her family,
Ms. Ayers lived in Georgia,
Florida, Washington, New
Hampshire, Delaware,
California, Utah, Japan,
and France. She attended
Dover High School in
Dover, Delaware, for all of
her high school years. She
attended FSU,. BYU,
University of Utah (a lot of
colleges) and earned her
Bachelor's degree in
French and a MLS
(Masters of Library
Science). Ms. Ayers'
favorite college team is
FSU.
She has two children,
both of them girls; they are
in their 20's and graduated
from BHS. They are the
most important people in
the world to her. Ms.
Ayers' favorite hobbies are
traveling, reading, and
watching BHS volleyball.
Ms. Ayers would love to
visit Quebec, Scotland, and
Ireland (she's going to Italy
in three years).
Ms. Ayers has been
teaching at Blountstown for
25 years, and she enjoys it
most of the time. She says
that" -she always learns
interesting things from her
students. She also taught
at University of Utah and
Chipola College. At BHS,
she teaches French, French
dual enrollment (which she
does at both BHS and
Chipola), and Spanish. I
was fascinated to learn that
she also knows a little bit of
Japanese, Russian, Italian,
and Portuguese.
Her favorite books are
The Lord of Rings series by
J.R.R. Tolkien. She says
that she really loves these
books because he has creat-
ed rich three dimensional
characters and he has writ-
ten so much.

FBLA News: Blood
Drive
Future Business
Leaders of America's Blood
Drive on November 4th
was a resounding success.
We collected 39 units of
blood which means that our
students helped to save 117
lives with their generous
donations. Eric Jones and
Harlea Perdue did a won-
derful job of conducting the
blood drive.
Only about 5% of the
population donates blood,


Mrs. Dana Ayers


which means 100% of
Americans are depending

Teeny Mites Fight
Hard, Come Up Short
Against Sneads
Liberty County's Teeny-
Mite team battled hard
against' a Sneads Pirate
team only to come up a bit
short in Saturday's contest
that found Sneads on the
winning end, 22-12.-
A fumble recovery for a
touchdown by the Pirates
led to an early 8-0 lead.
The Pups would come back
on the next drive however,
and score on a 5 yard
touchdown run by Lane
McCormick to bring the
Teeny-Mite Squad within
two, points. In the second
quarter, Sneads would
answer with a long drive
and another touchdown run
that put them up 16-6. A
defensive battle ensued for
much of the game as'
Liberty County held the
Pirates on numerous
drives.
Late touchdowns by
both teams brought the
score to 22-12 and the
Pups fell to a good Sneads
team. Cody Sewell, Joshua
Goodman, and Lucas
Barber led the way for
Lane McCormick's two TD
runs. Ian Black, Charlie
Burns, and Nicklous
Hagerman led the defen-
sive charge with numerous
tackles.
The coaches have been


impressed with their young
team's courage and deter-
mination this season as
they have fought hard all
year. The Teeny-Mites are,
now 1-6 on the season and
will face Franklin County
this Saturday and
Blountstown next Tuesday.


Pee-Wees Blow out
Chattahoochee
The Liberty County
Pee-Wee team dominated a
fast Chattahoochee Yellow
Jacket team 32-6 last
Tuesday in Bristol. J.J.
House started the scoring
with a 70 yard run on the
game's first play. The 2-
point conversion was
unsuccessful and Liberty
County led 6-0.
The Dawgs moved the
ball quickly on their next
possession but stalled after
moving deep into Yellow
Jacket territory. The
defense would stiffen and
get the ball back for the
offense on 4 downs. After
the turnover, precise pass-
ing and excellent running
by QB Will Hosford moved
the ball down the field and
Hosford took a QB keeper
around the right end for the
second Liberty County
score. The 2-point conver-
sion was good this time and
the Dawgs led 14-0.
Later in the second
quarter the Bulldog
defense would force an
interception by Kenny
Godwin. Godwin avoided
would-be tacklers and took
the ball back 80 yards for
the score. After the extra


point conversion Liberty
County went into the half
leading 22-0.
Chattahoochee wasted
no time in th6 second half
as the Jacket return man
took the 2nd half kickoff
.back for their only score of
the game. The Dawgs
would sputter on offense for
much of the '3rd quarter
and Liberty County led 22-
6 after three quarters of
play. Chattahoochee had
no luck moving the ball in
the 4th quarter as the
Dawg defense seemed to
strengthen. Midway
through the 4th, Kyle
Holcomb, D.J. Pittman,
and Garrett Swier applied
pressure to the Yellow
Jacket offense and sacked
the elusive QB in the end-
zone for a safety which
added to the Liberty
County lead.
The Dawgs were not fin-
ished scoring, however, as
J.J. House and the return
team took the free kick fol-
lowing the safety back 60
yards for the last score of
the night. Noah Davis
added tle two point con-
version that brought the
score to 32-6.
With the win'the Pee-
Wee team improves to 6-0.
They will face Blountstown
next Tuesday in the final
regular season game. The
Dawgs have, already
secured their spot in the
league championship game
and will face the winner of
the Southern division on
November 21st. The site
for this game has yet to be
determined.

to Remember






T77m Adams
Funel Director
Since the birth of our nation,
millions of Americans have
died for our country on the field
of battle. Millions more have
placed themselves a living
shield between our country and
our enemies, - emerging
unharmed through the kindness
of a merciful creator.
On Veteran's Day, we honor
the dead and the living, whose
actions have testified to their
courage and devotion to our
country. We give thanks for
their sacrifice, and we share if
only briefly and inadequately-
the grief of loved ones who
survive them. Let us on this
Veteran's Day remember that
we have preserved our freedom
only through the continued
willingness of brave men and
women to risk their lives for its
sake.
On Veteran's Day, we honor
them all; those who wore a
uniform in days past and those
who wear it today. We honor
them with a recognition of a
debt that can never be repaid. It
is beyond price...

DUI crash cont'd


and ran in the ditch.
Trooper Harsey and Sgt.
Johnson discovered that the
vehicle actually belonged to
Billy Jones and, upon fur-
ther questioning, his daugh-
ter admitted her father had
been drinking and asked
her to lie for him so he
wouldn't go to jail.
Upon questioning, Jones
stated he and his daughter
were returning from the
Seafood Festival in
Apalachicola, she was driv-
ing, and ran into the ditch
as they turned onto Oglesby
Road. Despite being told
that his daughter had
already admitted she had
just picked him up after the
crash, Jones insisted she
was driving, but slipped up
at one point and said, "I


was driving northbound on
71..." He later returned to
his original statement that
his daughter was behind the
wheel, Trooper Harsey
noted Jones smelled of alco-
hol, was swaying, and had
slurred speech.

Upon being told he was
under arrest, Jones resisted
by pulling his arms together
so he couldn't be cuffed.
Trooper Harsey then forced
him on the ground and,
with assistance from other
officers, he was taken into
custody.
Jones later admitted he
was behind the wheel. He
was booked into the
Calhoun County Jail and
released the following day
on his own recognizance.

Over the past 20 years,
more than 530 red-cockad-
ed woodpeckers have been
moved from the
Apalachicola National
Forest -- and more recently
the Osceola National Forest
-- under the National
Forests in Florida translo-
cation program. The wood-
pecker populations on the
two Florida forests are
healthy enough to offer
birds to less stable popula-
tions in order to boost its
numbers across, the south-
eastern United States.
"By doing so we provide
an invaluable source of red-
cockaded woodpeckers to
support regional transloca-
tion needs," , said Carl

ment staff officer.
Just last month, 46 birds
were captured and translo-

busy pageant week with
the grand finale as a new
Teen and Miss Northwest
Florida .will be crowned.
The Miss Northwest
Florida 'Organization is
directed by Jami Daniels
and is open to residents of
the' 18 counties of NWFL,
from Pensacola to Perry!
The Official Charity of the
Organization is the Susan
G. Komen Breast Cancer


Foundation and thus far the
Miss NWFLO has raised
several thousand dollars for
this cause and the titlehold-
ers and volunteers involved
with the organization have
logged a combined several
thousand hours of commu-
nity service and appear-
ances throughout the
region.
The new titleholders will
spend their year traveling
throughout the region mak-
ing appearances, and rais-
ing awareness on the effects
of Breast Cancer and other
charitable causes. They
will also be rewarded an
amazing prize package
which includes a Trip to
Walt Disney World 'in
Orlando!!!

Woodpecker cont'd


groups to suitable habitats
and increases genetic diver-
sity in smaller groups.
Forest Service Wildlife
Biologist Chuck Hess, who
has overseen and moni-
tored the RCW population
in the Apalachicola
National Forest, pioneered
translocation efforts for the
National Forests in Florida
since 1989.
"If we don't move these
birds, the populations in
other areas die and its
genetics disappear," he
said.
The red-cockaded wood-
pecker is a small bird meas-
uring about seven inches
long and identified by its
white cheek patch and
black and white barred
back. The male birds have
few red feathers that usual-
ly remain hidden under the
black feathers on its head.
Once found sprawling in
90 million acres of longleaf
pine forests in the south-
east, the red-cockaded
woodpecker's population
today numbers only 14,000
birds, or 5,600 active clus-
ters across 11 states. The
population reduction can be
attributed to the declining
habitat of the longleaf pine
ecosystem whose footprint
has been reduced to three
percent of its original
expanse.
"The two biggest
advances in red-cockaded
woodpecker recovery to
date have been the devel-
opment of artificial cavity
technology and transloca-
tion of juvenile woodpeck-
ers," Petrick said.
"Without either of these,
red-cockaded woodpecker
recovery would be very dif-
ficult and slow, if not
improbable."
- The use of artificial cavi-
ties, or excavated holes, in
mature pine trees allow
existing populations to sta-
bilize and encourages
younger red-cockaded


woodpeckers to move into
suitable but unoccupied
habitat once the cavities
have been created.
Additionally, Petrick
said the' speed at which the
red-cockaded woodpecker
population grows is dramat-
ically increased by translo-
cating juvenile woodpeck-
ers to recruitment clusters
instead of depending on the
birds to find other bird pop-'
ulations on their own.
Moving the
Apalachicola National
Forest's healthy birds has
proved successful as evi-
denced at the
Chickasawhay Ranger
District on the Desoto
National Forest in 1991.
"About five single males
were left on the popula-
tion," Hess said. "They
were essentially on their
way out." After moving
birds over a period of 10
years, the population
increased to 30 breeding
groups.
The Apalachicola
National Forest provides a
safe refuge for the largest -
and the only recovered. -
population of endangered
red-cockaded woodpeckers
in the world.

"Red-cockaded wood-
peckers are effective indica-
tors of a healthy longleaf
pine system and are strong-
ly tied to this ecosystem,"
Hess said.
Conservation and man-
agement is central to recov-
ery goals, and frequent pre-
scribed burning on the
Apalachicola National
Forest is essential to main-
taining a balanced forest
ecosystem for the wood-
peckers.
Today, the Apalachicola
National Forest is home to
650 groups of red-cockaded
woodpeckers, or 1,200
birds.
The birds are translocat-
ed once a year in October.
