PURPLE HEART MEDAL


BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
After over 50 years
since fighting ,in the
Korean War, Pvt. R.E.
Pitts - known as R.L.
since he was a kid - stood
before the Blountstown
High School student
body last Wednesday
and accepted an award
that was long overdue.
Col. Logan Barbee
and Lt. Col. Danny
Hassig, both of
Blountstown, presented
R.L. with a Purple
Heart award.
"This iss. an award
that only soldiers in com-
bat earn," Col. Barbee
told the students.
"Veterans that have
been to the mountain,
climbed the mountain,
and served their country
under very hazardous
conditions."


Author Michael Lister (pictured) has written a novel set
along the Apalachicola River basin. He has pledged to
donate all profits from the book to environmental protection.

Man



busted


with 4



bags of



cocaine

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
The keen eye of an off
duty officer led to the arrest
of a Liberty County man
last Wednesday.
Avonce Brye, 30, of
Bristol, has been charged
with possession of cocaine
and less than 20 grams of
marijuana.
According to the
Blountstown Police
Department, an unnamed
officer was
parked in
a personal
*vehicle
outside
Travis
Wireless
when he
noticed a
m a n
parked n e
beside AVONCEBRYE
him hold-
ing what appeared to be a
bag of cocaine. Ofc.
Timothy Partridge and Sgt.
Fred Tanner arrived on the
scene and made contact
with the driver, later identi-
fied as Brye. He was
parked in a handicapped
zone without a handicap
placard and appeared
extremely nervous. Brye
consented to a search which
turned up a small plastic
bag with a white powder
substance that field tested
positive for cocaine. After
being placed under arrest,
Brye admitted to having
four more bags of cocaine,
along with a bag of marijua-
na, in his pants.
During an interview at
the police station, Brye
stated h ad purchased
the cocaine in Bristol for
$50. He was booked into
the Calhoun County Jail
and given a conditional
release the following day.

Churches join forces to

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor Jr e

A grand opening cele-
bration is set for Saturday,
Nov. 21, from 8 a.m. to
noon at the new Calhoun-
Liberty Ministry Center in
Blountstown.
Passersby have likely
seen many cars lined up
outside the center as
they've traveled on and off
Trammell Bridge on the
Calhoun County side. The
building, located across the
highway from Minnie Lee's
Restaurant, has been brim-
ming with activity since
churches on both sides of
the river decided to join

Purple Heart continued-

R.L.'s unit had been ordered back
from the front lines to recover, the
enemy infiltrated. He and his fellow
soldiers began firing, but were greatly
outnumbered. R.L. was firing his sec-
ond magazine as a bullet entered and
exited his helmet, leaving him with a
serious head injury. He lost conscious-
ness, but awoke the next day to find
his weapon and equipment gone. R.L.
was nearly shot by his fellow soldiers .
as he crawled back into the perimeter. f
He was taken to an aid station, then
onto Japan for further treatment. In .
the process, paperwork was lost and
his combat infantry badge disap-
peared.
R.L. eventually made it back to
the states and retired after 20 years
with International Paper Company.
But last week, standing on a stage in
his hometown, he was a soldier again.
And we thank him for his service. Col. Logan Barbee pins the Purple Heart on Pvt. Pitts.

Coming soon: Men who stare


at goats in their underwear


I can't wait to see that
new movie "Men Who
Stare at Goats". It looks
like it would be a hoot.
However, I feel a kinship to
these men. I once had to
stare down a goat, at 2
a.m...in my underwear, but
this was not the first time
for me to be caught out in
my drawers. First, let us
revisit a day in 2000.
We had decided to haul
off all our aluminum cans
.and scrap aluminum. All
the bags of cans set out in
the back 40 til the plastic
had given away, so we had
to re-bag them arid check
for water, then loaded them
in the pickup truck for the
trip to the recycle place.
Zach and I took them
because he had to, deposit a
check, and pick up his
schedule for high school.
Jacob and Wesley stayed
behind to clean up the area
around where the cans had
been. We made it about
two miles before two huge
bags of cans went airborne
and crashed on the road
spilling everywhere. Of
course, two cars were com-
ing so we had to jump out
and kick the cans off the
road so they could pass,
(they were laughing their
butts off at these two
idiots). Well, after they
passed we got all the cans
off the road, or at least right
on the edge so others could
pass if they came.
I. heard it before I saw it
- a huge dump truck going


about mach 1. I turned my
head and yelled at Zach to
do the same, WHOOSH, it
went by, then two. seconds
later, the whirlwind of air
behind it....cans took flight.
I could just see him, laugh-
ing, looking in his rear view
mirror....thinking how
much that looks like all
them cans taking flight near
the end of "Twister" ...
except he is feeling real
proud of himself for causing
the tore-na-der.
I just hope he could
make out my outstretched
middle finger as I was chas-
ing my old floppy hat down
the road.
We patched bags and
over stuffed bags till we got
it all back in the truck, this
time with the bags on bot-
tom and an old screen door
frame on top weighted
down with an our spare
tire.
We made it to town
without another incident,
but when we got on Hwy.
20, with all the big rigs
passing by, we held our
breath each time. Did I
mention it was 101
degrees, and 12
noon?????? Oh well, we got
a good adventure and
$38.62 for our trouble. Not
much money, but it always
reminds me of being a kid,
picking up glass soda bot-
tles for five cents each, I
would always spot them in
the ditch and make my dad
go back so I could get them,
then when we went to town


Tribute to men,



women of VFDS


Dear Editor,
I appreciate the inter-
views of the "Teacher of the
Week" written by BHS stu-
dents and published in the
Record. I enjoy getting to
know the teachers better by
viewing the picture and
reading these articles.
I have a request that I
hope you will find interest-
ing, and if not now, maybe
some time in the future. I
am in awe and feel grati-
tude for the men and
women, young and old, who
dedicate their lives and sac-
rifice their time, money,
and skills to help keep us
safe in Calhoun County. I
am referring to the volun-
teer fire department per-
sonniel.
I would like to see either
the Record or perhaps as a
school class/club, interview
these upstanding brave
men and women and fea-
ture them in a. picture and
article in the paper. I think
it would be interesting for
all of us to find out who they
are, and what drives them
to donate their service and
free time to risk their own
safety to ensure ours.
I have a friend who has
two sons, both young men,
who are often called out in
the middle of the night to


car wrecks, house fires, etc.
She never knows what time
they will return, nor even
IF they will return home.
More than once, these
young men return home
just in time to shower and
rush to school or work.
What makes men and
women do this? I don't
know. I do know that I for
one, sincerely appreciate it.
I don't want these men
and women and their sacri-
fices to go unnoticed in our
county. These are our local
heroes and we, the recipi-
ents of their good deeds,
need to take notice. Help
us do this, please, by shar-
ing their names and ,a
glimpse into their lives with
your readers.
As I have often told
young people I have taught
through the years, "It is
often not the man in the
White House in
Washington, DC that
makes a real difference in
the lives of others, but the
man/woman living in the
pink house on the corner of
your neighborhood that
impacts and changes the
world."

Sincerely,
Dr. Glenda Sue Vickery
Blountstown


on Friday, I would cash
them in and buy comic
books.
Who was that guy who
wrote the book, "All I Need
to Know I Learned in
Kindergarten"?? He said
the world would be a nicer
place if we all had cookies
and milk in the afternoon
and lay down and took a
nap. I agree. I think it
would be nice to earn all I
need by picking up soda
bottles...and if a certain
dump truck driver got hem-
orrhoids.
Jump ahead to 2003ish,
to another adventure for
me and Zack.
I am a big fan of the TV
show "24". Have you seen
it? The premise is that each
season is one day, 24 one
hour shows that make up
that one day. If you miss
one, too bad. I don't miss
one. The shows protagonist
is Jack Bauer, CTU agent
extraordinaire, and one bad
ambry. Jack will do whatev-
er it takes to protect our
country from terror. Let's
just say when the boogey
man goes to bed, he checks
under the bed for Jack.
I was watching the cur-
rent episode when I got a
call from Zachary. Seems
his car had broken down
about two miles from home,
he claimed one of his front
wheels had fallen off. I
informed him that I was
watching "24". What I
would do is as soon as a
commercial came on, I
would jump in the truck
and scoop him up, bring
him home and deal with the
� car after the show was over
(pre dvr days).
When I got to him, he
was parked half in the road,
pointing the wrong way. He
had passed a deer who just
stood there in the road and
watched him drive by. Zack
decided to turn around and
see if he could just pull up
beside him. As his front
wheel went off the shoulder,
the lower ball joint came
apart causing the wheel to
bury itself up in the fender.
I told him he had to get it
off the road. He said it
would mess it up. I said it
was already messed up, get
it off the road before some-
one hits it.
As he was attempting
this, sure enough, here
comes a vehicle. I walked
toward them and was
motioning them to slow
down and get in the other
lane. They seemed to
understand, but they
slowed way down. It was a
mini-van of some sort,
instead of gawking at the
"wreck" like most folks do,
they were gawking at me!!
As I recall, the mom was
rolling up her window as
they approached me.
That's when I realized, I
had been on the couch at
home, watching "24," I was
just supposed to run up
there and right back. I was
watching TV in my under-
wear, a tee-shirt and box-
ers...light blue boxers with
glow in the dark smiley
faces. I was glad I did not
recognize the van or the
faces. We got the car off the
road and home.
2007.......Wesley want-
ed a goat. Reggie had
acquired it free from some-
one and just showed up
with it one night. His pen
was not ready so we tied
him to a post. Wesley went
off with Reggie to get a sec-
tion of fence panel to finish
his pen. I went to get
Nancy to let her see the
goat. It was white with
black spots and looked like
a cow. As we got near the
goat, he took off till he got
to the end of the rope,
flipped and hit the ground,
got up, did the same in the
opposite direction, same
result, again, but this time,
the rope came untied...and
he was gone, out into the
night, never to be seen
again. I remember thinking
that was the shortest goat
venture in history. My
chocolate lab, Grunt, took

BHS 'Hoops for Hope'


pink game January 15


Our BHS boys' and
girls' basketball teams will
be dressed out in PINK on
Friday, January 15, 2010,
for three very special
games against the
Bozeman Bucks. All three
BHS teams will be com-
pletely outfitted in PINK
uniforms, down to their
shoelaces and arm bands.
Leading up to the
January 15th "Hoops for
Hope" game, the school_
will be sponsoring several
events that focus on making
our young people and our
community more aware of
how important it is that we
take care of our health.
That evening, we will pay
tribute to cancer survivors,


those currently fighting
cancer, and special memori-
als will be made to those
who lost their battle with
the disease.
Our first goal that had to
be met was' raising the
funds necessary to pur-
chase PINK uniforms for
all three teams. Thanks to
our generous community,
this did not take any time
to accomplish! Donations
from Blountstown, Drugs,
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital,
Golden Pharmacy,
McClellan Appraisals,
Ruth Attaway CPA and
BHS alumni Gerald
Goodman have already
made it possible for us to
order the teams PINK uni-


forms.
1HS is working hard to
make this a very special
event and additional funds
are needed to guarantee
that "Hoops for Hope" is a
great success. THINK
PINK - Most of us have
someone we know, love,
went to school with, live
next to, or work with that
has been touched by cancer
or is currently battling to
survive. Let's all do our
part to honor, encourage
and increase awareness.
To donate and/or partic-
ipate in any way, please
contact Sharon Leonard-

Tigers hang on to defeat Baker, 28-20




Playoffs begin in Freepo0 Friday night


The Blountstown Tigers
capped off a very successful
2009 regular season Friday
night with a 28-20 win over
Baker. The Tigers built a
20-6 lead by halftime only
to have Baker fight back to
tie the game at 20-20 in the
third quarter. Ryan
McIntyre scooped up a
Baker fumble in the fourth
quarter and ran it in from
the six to put the Tigers
back on top. Quarterback
PJ. Buggs ran in the two-
point conversion for the 28-
20 final score.
The victory boosted
Blountstown to 8-2 overall
and 4-1 in district play.
After defeating Port St. Joe
and losing to Liberty
County in last Monday's
playoff, the Tigers are now
preparing for Friday night's
trip to Freeport, winners of
District -1 Class 1-A.
Liberty County, winners of
District 2 Class 1-A will be
hosting South Walton. A
Tiger win and a Liberty win
would force a rematch
between the two rivals.
Freeport soundly defeat-
ed Blountstown in the kick-
off classic back in early
September. They lost their
regular season opener to
Milton and have since won
nine, straight.
"They're very efficient
on offense. They have a
quarterback who can throw
well, possession type
receivers and a very good
offensive line," coach Greg
Jordan said Tuesday.
"Their best running back
who didn't play against us
the first time, is one of the
best backs we will, have
faced all year."
A key to the Tigers' suc-
cess this season has been
staying healthy and avoid-
ing key injuries. The
Tigers'have been 'hit hard
by iajurdes in the past tbrec..
weeks.
"Since the Franklin
County game, we've had
nine players suffer injuries.
Some are serious and some
are the nagging type that
really slow a player down.
Against Baker, ,we had
three defensive backs suffer
injuries and Baker really


took advantage of our
young replacements,"
Jordan noted. �"We're real-
ly limping into the play-
offs."
.Cavon Cox suffered a
knee injury and will be a
gametime ' decision.
Princeton Grant and Paul
Mosley both suffered ankle
injuries and will be ques-
tionable for the Freeport
game.
The Tigers took their
opening possession and
scored on a 53 yard six play
drive. Jawon Mosley had
key runs of 16 and 19 yards
and scored on a four yard
run. Buggs passed to
Broxton for the early 8-0-
lead.
On Baker's next play,
Broxton intercepted a pass
and returned it to the
Baker 29. Following a 15
yard penalty against Baker,
Cox raced 14 . yards for a
touchdown. The two-point
play failed but the Tigers
were up 14-0.
On Baker's next series,
Broxton intercepted his
second pass at the Tiger 28.
After forcing a Tiger
punt, Baker put together a'
58 .yard 5 play drive and
scored on a, 9 yard run.
The kick failed and the
score was 14-6.
Later in the second
quarter, the Tiger defense
forced another punt and the
offense took over at the
Baker 40. Buggs passed to,
Broxton who raced the dis-
tance for a touchdown.
The two-point play failed


but the Tigers led 20-6.
Baker put together a 89
yard 13 play scoring drive
before halftime to cut the
lead to 20-14.
Midway the third quar-
ter, Baker marched down
field and scored again on a
5 yard run and tied the
score at 20-20.
Broxton came up with
his third interception of the
night to end Baker's next
drive. The Tigers gave the
ball back with a fumble.
The Tiger defense
stopped Baker on fourth
and three at the Tiger 23 to
open the *fourth quarter.
After being held, Blake
Shelton punted to the
Baker 6.
On second down, Ryan
McIntyre grabbed a loose
ball and ran into the end-
zone. Buggs ran in the two-
point play and the Tigers
were back on top 28-20.
Dowling Lee recovered
a fumbled punt following
the Tigers' next series to
keep Baker's offense offthe
field. Late in the fourth
quarter, Marquel Thomas
came up with an intercep-
tion to end Baker's last
scoring opportunity.
Jason Money and
Dowling Lee led the Tiger
defense with 12 tackles
each followed closely by
Jawon Mosley and Zack
Segers with 10 each.
Javyon Mosley had 74
yards on 15 carries and
Princeton Grant added 42
yards on 13 attempts.


Princeton Grant meets strong opposition on this play.


BY BLOUNTSTOWN TIGER

HEAD COACH GREG JORDAN


The Tigers capped off
the regular season with a
28-20 win over the Baker
Gators on the road this past
Friday night to finish the
regular season at 8-2.
I think if anyone had
said before the season start-
ed that we would finish 8-2
and 4-1 in district play that
I would have said we'll take
it. The Baker game was a
game where we had control
early with a 20-6 lead and
then had to cause a defen-
sive fumble for a scoop and
score to win the game. The
injury bug took a big bite
but of the Tigers starting
line up over the course of
the last 2 games plus the
shootout.
We have nine starters
that are either out or trying
to play through injuries. In
the Baker game three of
the four starters in the sec-
ondary were out by half-
time. Baker is a team that
was averaging about 10-15
passes per game but threw
the ball 33 times against us
once the saw the secondary
issues we were having. We
wound up the game playing
with two reserve corners
and a back up at one of the
safety spots. The good thing
is these young men stepped
up and did what it took to
get the job done. We had
several other players that
played through injuries and
showed a lot of courage to
help us win that game.
The playoff opponent for
the Tigers in the first round
of the state playoffs is the
Freeport Bulldogs.
Freeport was the winner of
district 1, class 1A. They
had a 9-1 overall record
with their only loss coming


to a much larger school in
Milton. The Bulldogs ran
off a perfect 8-0 record in
the district, with a winning
margin average of 31-20 in
those contests. Freeport
has an outstanding public
school team. I told our kids
after the loss over there in
the Kickoff Classic that we
could run into them again
later on in the season. I
don't know what the proba-
bility was that we would
face them again, I guess


maybe 15-2 odds with all
the teams combined in both
districts. But here we are
both in the playoffs and fac-
ing each other again.
It will be a tough contest
for these Tigers as we trav-
el to Freeport this week.
But this team has over
come odds all year Along.
The kickoff will be at 7:30
at Freeport. Hope to see
you at the game!

Family Reading and
Science Night
By Caroline Howell
Fifth Grade Reporter
Blountstown
Elementary School had a
fun time at Family Reading
and Science Night. First,
Mrs. Reid read a story
called Poor Pluto. Tlen,
Mrs. Peacock gave every-
body a star finder. After
that, everybody painted a
replica of The Starry Night
by Vincent Van Gogh.
Telescopes were set up
for students to look
through, but the clouds cov-
ered the moon, so we
looked down the hallway.
At the end, everybody
watched the phases of the
moon with a very informa-
tive CD. Everybody had a
great time.

us. It was a wonderful pro-
gram.

Pumpkin Pudding
By Rachel Nandho
Fifth Grade Reporter
Mr. McClellan and his
class made pumpkin pud-
ding recently. They cooked
it over an open fire in an
iron Dutch oven using a
three-legged cook stand.
As the pumpkin sim-
mered over the fire, Mr.
McClellan read the stu-
dents the books, Pumpkin
Pudding and The Story of
the 11:59 Death Train.
When the pudding was
finished, everyone got a
sample of the tasty pump-
kin pudding. Students had
a better idea of how early
pioneers traveling on
wagon trains had do their
cooking.

Moment continued


but I knew he wouldn't
catch it, just play with it.
I told you all that to tell
you this. TWo o'clock in the
morning, Nancy wakes me
up whispering in my ear.
She tells me she thinks she
hears the goat blatting in
the back yard (why is she
whispering, like the goat
can hear us??). I stumble
out of bed to investigate. I
.-think I see something, but I
have to walk out there, still
in my boxers mind you.
Sure enough, there is the
goat, and about six feet
away is Grunt. I have never
seen him so happy. I asked
Nancy to go get my rope.
Every time I took a step
towards him, the goat
would back up. Grunt just
sits there looking at him. I
notice the goat catch
Grunts gaze, then he
charged, at the dog!! I
decided to just put my
hands on my knees and just
stare at him, right in the
eyes. Sure enough, ,he


couldn't stand it. After
about 30 seconds, he low-
ered his head and came
after me. I caught him by
the horns and hung on, he
caught me off guard by
kicking to the side and
twisting. Down we went,
but I held on. It didn't take
long for him to have enough
of this and he just sorta
locked down, about the
time Nancy showed up with
the rope. I tied hiin with a
knot Chief Ben Hall had
taught me, in firefighting
school, I knew this one
would not slip, in fact, it
was the same rope I had
used in class.

So that was my version
of a man staring at a goat,
I'm curious to see if boxer
shorts play a part in the
movie. If not, maybe we
will make our own movie:
"Men Who Stare at Goats
in Their Underwear".
Coming to theater near
you.

Lister book event cont'd-


James, is struggling to sur-
vive and the odds- are
against him. I see the river
system the same way-
fighting to survive, and I'm
trying to do my small part
to make sure it does."
In "Double Exposure,"
one fateful fall evening,
Remington James, ven-
tures deep into the river
swamp to try out some new
equipment and check his
camera traps. While there,
he comes across the most
haunting images of his
life-the frame-by-frame
capture of a shocking
crime. By exposing the
criminal, Remington has


' exposed himself to danger,
even possible extinction.
Remington must now do
two things: make it to the
river and make it through
the night - and the odds of
doing either are slim to
none.
"I'm so proud of this
book," Lister said. "And it
feels so good to bring some
attention to the river and
the swamps and the endan-
gered species of vanishing
Florida. Nothing feels bet-
ter than giving-and to give
my very best in this novel,
then give the profits from it
to help protect the land and
animals it honors . . . it's


indescribable."
The Chamber's
"Evening with Michael
Lister" will be Thursday,
December 3rd at 6 p.m. at
The Callahan Restaurant
in Blountstown. Tickets
are $25 'each, and are very
limited. Dinner is included.
To purchase tickets, call,.
email or stop by the
Chamber office:
kristy@calhounco.org,
850/674-4519.

Local teen earns blackbelt,


now teaching tae kwon do


BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor

Little John Mallory is all
of 14 years old, but he's in
a pretty grownup role.
Since July, he's been teach-
ing tae kwon do. '
A ninth grader at
Blountstown High School,
"Little John" as he's called
by his friends and family,
was six years old when he
first became a student with
Park's Tae Kwon Do,
under the direction of Eric
Hill. In the eight years that
followed, he earned his
black belt and is now an
instructor. Every Tuesday
afternoon, you can find him
at the W.T. Neal Civic
Center with about 20
youngsters.

"Most of them are a lot
younger, little kids from six
to 11 year old," he says of
his students. "It's a lot dif-
ferent being a teacher. You
have to think of things to
keep them focused because
they don't have that much
of an attention span."
With Hill as his mentor,
Mallory says he liked "the


idea of helping out and
helping. the beginners be
able to do a lot more." His
classes focus on teaching
forms and kicks.

."We have a competition
coming up in a few months
and I'm helping students
get ready," he remarks,
adding that he's consider-
ing getting back into com-
petition himself. "I just love


the fighting part and going
to the competitions."
Little John, who is the
son of John and Teresa
Mallory, says he plans to
continue advancing with
Park's Tae Kwon Do. For
those considering this sport,
he offers some insight. "It's
fun, it will keep -you inter-
ested, and it's good for self
defense, plus it's good for
discipline."

Shiitake 'mushrooms are
delicious. Seed these oak


logs for you to enjoy, or
share them as a unique gift!
Two classes are tentatively
scheduled for late
December and mid
January. Watch the news-
paper for further details.
The Calhoun County
Extension Office will be

Mushroom inoculums
(seed) for our January
workshop on December 1,
'2009. If you have previ-
ously taken this class,

these mushrooms, and
need only new seed let us
know and we can place the
orders at the same time.

the class). Call the
Extension Office at 674-
8323 no later than
