Letter to the Editor:
I would like to thank the
American Cancer Society
and all the volunteers 'for
the Relay for Life for their
outstanding work and help
they 'have provided the
people that cancer has
touched. I volunteered with
the Relay for several years
after losing my mother and
little brother to cancer.
My husband was diag-
nosed in August with


prostate cancer and our
world seemed to collapse
down around us. Had it not
been for the American
Cancer Society and all
those volunteers, holding
up the walls and restoring
hope, I don't know what
would have happened.
Within the American
Cancer Society I was able
to find answers to many
questions I had, help with
transportation for his 39


treatments and a shoulder
to lean on in this our time
of need.
Don has finished his
treatments but still has a
road ahead to walk. I want
to thank again the
American Cancer Society,
all the Relay for Life fami-
ly, and prayers we have
received during this trying
time. There is still a need
but we will get there to
hear "cancer free".


Continue the prayers and
please remember that the
Relay for Life is a great
cause. Support it cause one
day you may need the sup-
port like we did!
Thanks to all,
Martha and Don Glory


Family appreciates firefighters,


police, and community friends


Letter to the Editor:
We would like to say
thank you first to God and
to the fire department and
police department and all
the concerned people for
their quick response and
help when our house
caught fire. If not for the


quick response our house
would have been
destroyed. Thanks to Fire
Chief Ben Hall and Police
Chief Glen Kimbrel for
their special help and stay-
ing with Carol until family
members arrived. A spe-
cial thanks to Dresa


Barfield, our neighbor, for
her help and fast response
to call 911. We are really
proud to live in a place
where people are still con-
cerned for others.

Thank you,
Randall and Carol Kent


Kinard VFD extends thanks for


success of Halloween Carnival


To the Volunteers and
Contributors:
The Kinard Volunteer
Fire Department's annual
Halloween Carnival
fundraiser was a huge suc-
cess this year, with one of
the largest crowds ever. We
owe our thanks to you for


your donations of door
prizes, cakes, supplies,
cash, advertisements, and
helping hands. Without
your support the Fire
Department would be
unable to handle such a
large understanding.
The money we raised


will be used to purchase
new -supplies and equip-
ment that will enable our
volunteer fire fighters to
respond more quickly and
more safely to any emer-
gency that arises in our
area.
We look forward to see-
ing you again at next year's
Carnival!
Sincerely,
Doyle F. Daniels

improve the knowledge of
the Natural Gas System by
providing better maps and
data to the City staff by
identifying key values, reg-
ulators, meters, pipe type
and size with specific loca-
tions. Since the project will
include verification of the
pipes and other locations,
crews responding to a prob-
lem will be able to quickly
view the system maps and
formulate a plan' to shut
down problem lines and
assist in evacuations if nec-
essary.
The project will further
enhance public safety by
providing greater aware-
ness to industry stakehold-
ers working in underground
construction, firefighters,
and police.
Another direct benefit
will be greatly enhanced
ability to provide public


notice to citizens living near
city pipelines, making them
aware of the lines in their
neighborhoods, educating
the public on detecting and
reporting potential leaks,
and adequately following
up on public outreach
efforts to determine the
success of said efforts.
While Mr. Woods was a
speaker at the conference,
he participated in attending
most of the non-conflicting
presentation. A lot of valu-
able information was dis-
cussed which has already
resulted in staff briefings to
further enhance employee
safety in the field working
on the Natural Gas
System. Mr. Woods also
learned of a couple of meas-
ures that may result in
additional grant opportuni-
ties for the city in the com-
ing year.

During the holiday sea-
son many people's thoughts
turn to giving to others, but
fortunately for local resi-
dents there are a number of
organizations that give to
others throughout the year.
On November 19th, the
Chipola Regional Workforce
Development Board
(CRWDB) hosted a gather-
ing of service organizations
in Marianna. The gather-
ing included representatives
from faith-based, communi-
ty based and governmental
entities that work to provide
services to those in need.
Richard Williams,
Executive Director of the
CRWDB, said the organiza-
tion hosted the meeting
both as a way to say thank
you, a way to inventory
available services, and as a
way to help the groups get
to know one another.
"At this time of year we
all start to reflect on what
we are grateful for,"
Williams said. "Within our
organization we realized we
were thankful to live in a
community with so many
people dedicated to helping
others and we wanted to
give them an opportunity to
meet each other and to say
thank you for all they do."
Each group in atten-
dance was able to identify
themselves and briefly
describe the services their
organization "provided.

Major League Baseball scout



is Chipola.'s Alumnus of Year


MARIAN NA- Tom
Kotchman, a major league
baseball scout and minor
league coach, has been
named Chipola College's
2009 Alumnus of the Year.
Kotchman's life has
been connected to Chipola
College since he signed a
baseball scholarship there
in 1973. He went on to a
successful career in profes-
sional baseball, but he con-
tinues to give back to the
little college that gave him
his start.
As a major league scout
and one of the most
respected managers in the
minors, Tom has helped
sign several Chipola play-
ers to big league contracts.
But more importantly, he
makes regular visits to
Chipola to share advice
with all the players, not just
the big prospects.
. Chipola baseball coach
Jeff Johnson says,. "There
are a lot of alumni who say
they want to help and some
even write checks, but Tom
goes above and beyond.
Anybody who knows Tom
would say that he is a
giver." Chipola president
Dr. Gene Prough agrees.
"Tom loves Chipola. Even
before his daughter
Christal played at Chipola,
he was always in touch,
asking what he could do to
help our student-athletes.
That connection is still
strong today," Prough said.
Kotchman is very open
about the influence that
Chipola had on his life.
"My time at Chipola play-
ing for coach Ellis Dungan
was very important for me
as a player and more so as
a man," Kotchman said.
"You cannot put a price on
the life lessons I learned at
Chipola. Years later my son
Casey was offered a schol-
arship to Chipola but was
drafted in the first round
and is currently playing in
the big leagues. My daugh-
ter Christal received a
scholarship to Chipola
where she was the starting
shortstop on their national
championship softball
team. As a family we will
be eternally grateful to
coach Johnson, AD Dr.
O'Daniel, college president
Dr. Gene Prough and soft-
ball coach Belinda Hendrix
for the opportunity that
was given to Christal,"
Kotchman said.


TOM KOTcHMAN
Christal went on to play
for the College of
Charleston, and Casey was
drafted by the LA Angels
and now plays for the
Boston Red Sox.
Tom could probably be a
major league manager
today, but he chose family
over his career. In 1990 at
age 35, he'd managed an
Angels' Triple-A club to
rave reviews and was on
the fast track for a major
league assignment. But he
had a young son and
daughter who were growing
up with dad out of town, so
he walked away from that
future as a Major League
manager and went home to
be a dad. In 1990, he took
a scouting position in


Florida and a short-season
Rookie Ball manager
assignment.
"That was so important
to me and my sister, having
him home with us when we
were young," said Casey.
"Choosing us over his
career, told. me that once
the cheering stops, all you
have is your family. I was
privileged and spoiled to
have him do what he did."
Three decades after
Tom played at Chipola, he
helped sign a young
Marianna High School
graduate Jeff Mathis to a
big league contract with the
Angels. Jeff is the son of
one of Tom's 1974 Chipola
teammate's Danny Mathis.
Tom Kotchman attend-
ed high school in Seminole,
Florida, and played base-
ball at Chipola. and Georgia
Southern. He was signed
by the Cincinnati Reds in
1977 and played two sea-
sons in Class A.
The 2009 season
marked Kotchman's 31st
year as a minor league
manager. In 11 seasons
with the Boise Hawks, the
team never finished lower
than second. He has man-
aged the Provo Angels and
since 2005, the Orem Owlz.
Through 2009, he had


compiled a career manage-
rial record of 1,584 victo-
ries with eight league
championships, including
Orem's '09 Pioneer League
title.

Freeport ends Tigers' season, 48-12


"Turnovers took us out
of the game early and we
could never recover," coach
Greg Jordan said Monday.
"There's not much else to
say."
Coach Jordan's short
summation of the game
was about all he could say
after the Tigers gave up
three fumbles and one
interception in the first half
to propel Freeport to a 34-
0 halftime lead. The
District 1 Class 1-A
Champions didn't need our
help. They were capable of
scoring on their own. The
turnovers just made it easi-
er for them to cruise to a
48-12 victory.
The Tigers finished the
2009 season at 8-3 and
District 2 Class 1-A run-
nersup. Ten Tiger seniors
will be missed next season.
They are: Darren Huff,
Princeton Grant, Leon
Broxton, Zack Segers, John
Jourdan, Jason Money,
Michael Gibson, Blake
Shelton, Stafford Dawson
and Alex Deason.
A 20 yard run by


Princeton Grant and a 25
yard pass from PJ. Buggs
to Leon Broxton set the
Tigers up with a first down
at Freeport's 21. Two
plays later Jawon Mosley
fumbled and Freeport had
their first gift. Nine plays
later Freeport scored on a
25 yard pass. The PAT
failed.
On the Tigers' next
series, Buggs' third down
pass was intercepted and
returned 32 yards to the
Blountstown 24. Freeport
scored on a first down pass
and added two points for a
14-0 lead.
The gifts kept on coming
for Freeport. On the
Tigers' next series a 30
yard pass from Buggs to
Grant moved the ball to the
Freeport 33. On a fourth
down play, Grant was
thrown for an 8 yard loss
and fumbled .the ball.


Freeport recovered.
On first


down,


Binder finished with 106
yards, part of Freeport's
329 rushing yards on the
night.
Following a Tiger punt,
Freeport runs of 14, 18,
and 11 yards set up a 1
yard touchdown run. The
PAT made the score 27-0.
On the Tigers' next
series, Grant lost his sec-
ond fumble at the Tiger 38.
A 21 yard TD pass and the
PAT gave Freeport a 34-0


lead at halftime.
The Bulldogs didn't
slow down in the second
half. They took the open-
ing kickoff and scored on a
45 yard third down pass
play. The PAT put
Freeport comfortably
ahead, 41-0. Freeport was
3 for 5 passing for 70 yards
against the Tigers. All
three completions were for
touchdowns.
The Tigers were


Freeport's talented run-
ningback Cody Binder
raced 67 yards for a touch-
down. The PAT failed.


Michael Guilford to be'

honored among Gator

Seniors facing FSU

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor

Before the Florida Gators take to the field Saturday to
face the Florida State Seminoles, the UF senior players
will be recognized. Among those honored will be the late
Michael "Sunshine" Guilford of Blountstown.
According to the UF website, "The Gators have won a
nation's-best and school-record 21 consecutive games, the
fourth-best winning streak in SEC history. It marks the
longest streak in the SEC in the past 15 years and third-
longest in the nation this decade. The team is also 11-0 for
the second time in school history (1995). Additionally,
Florida's 25 seniors became the winningest class in SEC
history with last Saturday's 62-3 win over FIU, now hold-
ing a 46-6 record in their time in the Orange and Blue."
Included in the list of 25 seniors is #46 quarterback
Michael Guilford, the Blountstown native who was a star
for the BHS Tigers and went on to play for Florida. With
his long hair, Michael looked a lot like a character in 'the
movie Remember the Titans and he was soon nicknamed
"Sunshine" by his Gator teammates. Michael received
ESPN coverage during the 2006 SEC championship
game for the outstanding job he did mimicking Ohio State
quarterback Troy Smith as he helped' his team prepare.
Michael was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident
on Oct. 12, 2007, but like the folks in Blountstown, the
Gators never forgot Guilford.
"He's a part of this group," Coach Urban Meyer said in
a news conference Monday. "(His death) really stung this
football team. He'll be a part of senior day. He's got a ter-
rific family and we'll just try to do the best we can to try
and make that family feel at peace with what he did here.
He was a phenomenal young man and a phenomenal
member of this team."
Michael is the son of Jerry Guilford and Janice Watson.





BY BLOUNTSTOWN TIGER 1
HEAD COACH GREG JORDAN


Turnovers -doomed any
chances the Tigers had of
winning at Freeport in the
first round of the playoffs.
The game's momen-
tum swung to the bad
guys after we fumbled our
first possession and they
went and scored and we
were never able to recov-
er.
These kids have bat-
tled and beat the odds all
year, but on this night it
was not meant to be. We
had four fumbles and one
interception on the night
and you will never win a
playoff game with five
turnovers.
With that being said, I
want to congratulate these
young men for what they
accomplished this season,
especially the seniors.
These nine seniors pro-
vided leadership during
the season and were the
stability of the program
this year. This group as a
whole surprised a lot of
people with what we were
able to accomplish this
year. Winning 8 games
and going 4-1 in a tough
district was more than
most people expected of
them as a team. As a mat-
ter of fact, a lot of the
players early in the year
were upset that people
said to them that they
were going to lose this
year and not be any good.
Thank you, players, for
believing and never giving


up. Some people are just
negative and nothing will
ever change that. To the
underclassmen, this year's
seniors showed you how
to lead and follow the
course. It will be up to you
how the 2010 season goes.
I want to take a minute
to thank all the churches
that participated in the
EC.A. breakfast program
this year. The First
Baptist Church of
Blountstown, the
Methodist Church of
Blountstown, Rivertown
Community Church,
Gateway Baptist Church
and Poplar Head Baptist
Church. I want to espe-
cially thank Pastor Dustin
Malphurs for taking
responsibility of contact-
ing the churches. Thanks
to Janet Dykes for all her
help with the pre-game
meals this year. That was
a big load off my plate on
Friday. Thanks to all the
loyal fans that followed
this group and that lis-
tened at home when you
couldn't make the trips or
the home game.

This was a great group
of kids to coach and the
seniors will be missed as
we move forward.
Underclassmen, it is now
your team and your time
to lead. See you in the
spring for more football!
Go, Tigers!!!


Leon Broxton caught 6 passes for 145 yards Friday night.


stopped on fourth down
and Freeport took over at
their own 44. On third
down, Paul Holmes broke
free and scampered 45
yards for another Freeport
touchdown. The PAT put
the Bulldogs on top 48-0.
The Tigers finally put
an offensive series together,
without a turnover. Buggs

The BHS lunchroom staff truly cares about the students they serve each day.


Salute to BHS lunchroom staff;


1309 cans collected in food drive


Support Staff
by Cassie Taylor
Around the, same time
each year we come to real-
ize what or who we truly
are Thankful for.
On this day November
26, I would like everyone at
BHS and every where else
to know that as a student at
Blountstown High School,
who eats lunchroom food, I
am tharikful for our lunch-
room ladies, Mrs. Vera
Anderson (group manager),
Mrs. Sandra Dudley (main
cook), Mrs. Cristle Taylor
(outtake manager), Mrs.
Catherine Sheppard (man-
ages the student accounts),
and Mrs. Marie McDaniel
(helps serve the line, and
washes dishes).
Each day of the year, the
BHS lunchroom staff
makes everyday the best.
Before I go on I would like
to note that all of the ladies
named above help each
other out. No one has one
specific job. I'm sure I
speak for the entire BHS
student body, faculty and
staff when I say, "Thank
you. We truly do appreciate
all the hard work you put
into the food when serving
us our daily nutritional
meals."
You always know how to
make us smile. For exam-
ple, when you walk into the
kitchen you can hear Mrs.
Dudley singing her favorite
song, and see Mrs. Taylor
picking at the students
making them laugh uncon-
trollably. Or even see Mrs.
Anderson tease the stu-
'dents and joke around with
them. Also, Mrs. Sheppard
who makes the lunchroom
feel homey by decorating it
-with bright colors and near-
by is Mrs. McDaniel, who
is just always quiet and
.smiling. You just cannot
help but grin. You all make
the day brighten up a bit
even though you might not

believe so.
Right now the BHS
lunch ladies are making a
special Thanksgiving din-
ner for all to enjoy. They
are working non stop to
make it truly special. I
know this because when I
took the picture, they
almost killed me, because I
had to get them to stop
cooking for just one
moment. So you can tell
they truly are dedicated to
what they do.
So, once again, the BHS
campus and I would like to
say, "Thank you, and have
a wonderful Thanksgiving
Holiday. You deserve ever
bit of it."

The BHS student body
came through with an

Arrow of Truth

by Rev. R.W. Waterman



We have much to


learn from pilgrims


Thanks For
Everything
Colossians 2:7
It is appropriate that we
have honored a few stout
and earnest Englishmen
who left their native land in
search of freedom to wor-
ship God. In this day of
".cynicism there are those
Swho would try .to destroy
every hero and every tradi-
tion that Americans have
'cherished throughout their
history. Yet no amount of
ridicule or cynicism can
ever take away the glory of
that the Pilgrim Fathers did
over 300 years ago.
If these Pilgrims could
stand here today and
'observe our troubled world
'with its disillusioned out-
look, its rebelliousness, and
its erosion of traditional val-
ues,. they would be not only
--dismayed, but shocked. We
-.have much to learn from
them.
- Certain things have not
-changed. There is still lust,
greed, hate and prejudice in
the human heart. There is
still persecution and war in
the world. We would do
well to come back to the
:school and church in early
Plymouth to see what those
sturdy pioneers can teach
;us..
We should be thankful
for the pilgrims deep,
;unwavering. religious con-
.-victions. What were these
'convictions? They believed
in Christ, the Son of God,
:'and His Kingdom. They*
,'found fulfillment in Him.
'They had purpose inri their
:lives. They had encoun-
,tered the living Christ and
"they knew it.
, They feared neither
.monarch nor men, only
�,God. Because they
64belonged to God they had a
,deep faith and confidence in
Themselves. They believed'
in their own dignity, were
-confident that their cause
L was just and walked with an
,uprightness that only fear-
,less and free men can. dis-
:play.
In our day much of the
- world believes little or noth-
'ing. Men are' broad, but
shallow. People believe its
:.impossible to know whether
r'God exists. There is anxi-
ety, emptiness, meaning-
less, even in the church.
Our youth are desper-
Sately searching for a pur-
pose and a meaning in their
' lives. They are searching
for fulfillment which they
,,are not finding in sex and
drugs, etc.
By contrast, these pil-
'grims stand as shining
examples. Men who were
-narrow, but deep, certain of
what they believed,
unswerving in their loyalty,
and dedicated to the God
they trusted and for whom
they would willingly have
died.
One of the hopeful signs
in America today is that
thousands of students and
young people are turning to
Christ. This factor hasn't
been given extensive cover-
age in the media, but I
assure you its so.

Workforce cont'd-

We should be thankful
for the example the pil-
grims left us and may each
of us seek to have these
same unwavering convic-
tions and to be the same
example because we know
the same God.
We should also be thank-
ful for the pilgrims example
of disciplined living. They
were Puritans who were
ready to order everything.
Their personal life, wor-
ship, the church, business
affairs, political views and
even recreation, according
to the commandments of
God.
One hundred years later,
Johnathan Edwards said of
them: "This practice of reli-
gion was not only their busi-
ness at certain seasons, but
the business of their lives."
They didn't mind being
called, narrow by the reli-
gious and civil establish-
ment of the day. They
remembered that their
Lord had shid, "Strait is the
gate and narrow is the way,
which leads to life, and few
there be that find.it."
The,ethic of self-mastery
and spiritual discipline falls'
on deaf ears today of multi-
tudes. What a contrast
between the conduct of the
pilgrims and the permis-
siveness and doctrine that
says that pleasure is the
principle good.
We should be thankful
for the pilgrims and take
heed before it's too late.
Self-disciple is a Christian
principle of life.
An honest farmer was
asked to dine with a gentle-
man and there asked a
blessing at the table as he
was accustomed to do at
home. ' His host said jeer-
ingly, "That is old-fash-
ioned; it is not customary
nowadays for well-educated
people to pray at the table."
The farmer answered that
with him it was customary,
but that some of his house-
hold never prayed over
their food; "Ah, then" said
the gentleman, "they are
sensible and enlightened,
Who are they?". The
farmer- answered, "They
are my pigs."
Are you thankful for
your heritage and the prin-
ciples on which it stands,
the Bible? I am, and I hope
. your mind and heart will be
extremely thankful and
express it this Thanksgiving
Day.

Ocheesee Creamery opens;



dream come true for family


BY JUDY LUDLOW
Extension Director

Look no further than
Calhoun County's own
backyard for examples of
agricultural legacy, deter-
mination, and endurance.
We are blessed with many
hard working farming fami-
lies- reaching back genera-
tions. Among our fields of
cotton, peanuts, soybeans,
corn, and livestock, is the
Wesselhoeft Dairy, one of
Calhoun County's two
remaining dairy farms.
Because of shifting mar-
kets, and a challenging
economy, the Wesselhoefts'
envisioned a day when they
would pasteurize, process,
and bottle their own milk
products rather than ship it
elsewhere. After 20 years
of hard work and moun-
tains of paperwork, the
Ocheesee Creamery has


become a reality.
In 1999 the
Wesselhoefts were honored
as Calhoun County's
Outstanding Farm Family
because of their land stew-
ardship, dedication to agri-
culture, and to their com-
munity. Many school chil-
dren, FFA, and 4-H youth
have toured this fascinating
dairy operation and seen
the Wesselhoefts' milk
Jersey cows that are on a
pasture-based feeding pro-
gram.
Now, the Ocheesee
Creamery is open for busi-
ness! The store front has
large glass windows for
viewing the bottling opera-
tion. The milk is sold in
glass bottles which are
' recyclable. Return your
bottles for a refund! They
currently . process fresh
milk, cream, and butter,
with more goods such as ice


cream and cheese to follow.
You can purchase these
products directly from the
Ocheesee Dairy, or from
local farmer markets, and
grocery stores.
Our strong, diverse agri-
cultural community is criti-
cal to Calhoun County's
economy. Purchasing fresh,
locally-grown produce, like
Ocheesee Dairy's milk,
cream,, and butter, will not
only support our economy
but will also help sustain
our cherished rural
lifestyle. You can purchase
local produce at grocery
stores and at Blountstown's
River Valley Marketplace
the first Saturday of each.
month.
For more information
about local agriculture and
farmers markets, please
contact the Calhoun
County Extension Office at
674-8323.

Late Adell Miles honored at



WFEC dedication ceremony


UNIVERSITY of i I

UF FLORIDA ALOUNv COUNV
IFAS Extension "'4 *


Employees, directors,
family and members at
West Florida Electric
Cooperative (WFEC),
recently gathered to pay
tribute to the late Adell
Miles, recognizing his 43
years of service to the coop-
erative by dedicating the
Sneads district office build-
ing in his honor.
Miles began working at
West Florida in 1947 and
served in virtually every
department during his long
career with WFEC, includ-
ing serving as acting man-
ager of the cooperative on
several occasions. He is
credited with starting the
Sneads district office to bet-
ter serve the needs of coop-
erative members in
Eastern Jackson County -
even working outages and
having his wife dispatch
from their home before
construction on the facility
was complete. Miles then
became the Sneads District


American Legion Post 241,
where he was active in the
funeral honor guard. Miles
was also a veteran of World
War II.
A dedication ceremony
for the Sneads district office
was held November 19. A
bronze plaque was placed
on the building's exterior in
Miles' memory.'

The Thanksgiving holi-
day is a peak travel period
for families nationwide.
Florida is no exception.
With its mild, autumn tem-
peratures and numerous
vacation attractions, many
families enjoy spending
their holiday ' in the
Sunshine State.,
Since Thanksgiving typ-
ically produces a high vol-
ume of motor vehicle traf-
fic, the Florida Highway
Patrol will increase its pres-
ence on Nov. 25 - 29. All
sworn FHP personnel,
including those typically
assigned to administrative
duties, will patrol Florida's
high volume roadways dur-
ing the five-day period.
Auxiliary and Reserve
troopers will volunteer to
augment the Patrol.
Troopers will direct their
enforcement efforts toward
impaired driving, speeding,
following too closely and
other aggressive driving
behavior. In addition,
troopers will strictly enforce
safety belt and child
restraint laws, which now
authorize law enforcement


officers to stop motorists
who fail to buckle up.
"The Florida Highway
Patrol is committed to mak-
ing Florida's highways safe,
and we plan to do that by
bolstering our forces to
reduce the number and
severity of crashes," said
FHP Director, Colonel
John Czernis. "I encourage
motorists to do their part by
complying with all traffic
laws and making sure
everyone in their vehicle is
buckled up."
The Florida Highway
Patrol offers, safety tips to
help you and your family
arrive at your destination
safely:
* Get plenty of rest
before setting out on a long
trip
* Observe and obey all
speed limits
* Allow plenty of time to
reach your destinations
* Drive sober, and only
sober
* Buckle up!
* Eliminate distractions:
Texting, talking on the
phone, eating, adjusting the


stereo - these are all exam-
ples of things that can take
your eyes off the road,
which is exactly what you
want to avoid.
* Prepare your vehicle:
Check fluids for proper lev-
els, i.e. oil, gas and wind-
shield wipers, and ensure
your tires have adequate
pressure and are in good
condition.
The Florida Highway
Patrol wishes everyone a
safe and happy
Thanksgiving and reminds
motorists of Florida's Move
Over Law. The law
requires , drivers who
approach an emergency
vehicle or tow truck
stopped roadside with
flashing lights to change
lanes away from the emer-
gency vehicles if able to do
so safely and if not, slow
down to 20 mph below the
speed limit.
Call *FHP (*347) to
report. intoxicated or
aggressive drivers, or if
your vehicle breaks down
and you need assistance. To
request immediate emer-
gency services, dial 911.
