Search for




boater

continues
BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
The search continued at
press time Tuesday for a
missing boater believed to
have drowned on the
Apalachicola River.
Ernest "Pee Wee"
Prevatte, 48, has been
missing since Jan. 24 when
the boat he was in with his
son-in-law, Robert Bailey,
Sr., 35, sank after they ran
out of gas. Bailey made it
safely to 'Trammell Bridge
but Prevatte never sur-
faced.
"We are continuing to
search for the vessel," says
Stan Kirkland of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission. "So far, that's
been elusive. We had
hoped that finding the boat
would give us a place to
start looking."
Kirkland says search
and rescue teams are
searching as far south as
Wewa and have recovered
several personal items from
'the boat including a life
jacket, a gas tank, and a
coat that belonged to
Bailey.

Legislative delegation


listens to voter issues


BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
Calhoun Countians came
from all over with a variety
of issues to discuss with
State Representative Marti
Coley and Senator Al
Lawson at a legislative dele-
gation town meeting
Monday night.
Clerk of Court Ruth
Attaway expressed concern
over proposed legislation
that would eliminate an
elected clerk and put the
duties of her office under a
judiciary program.
"A local elected repre-
sentative in that Clerk's
Office gives you somebody
accountable to you,"
Attaway remarked, adding
that her office provides


many services.
Both Lawson and Coley
agreed to fight the measure.
"It was a money grant and
the judges went after that
money," said Lawson.
Coley said what will
work elsewhere in Florida
might not be right for our
area. "What people all over
the state don't get is it's
very different in a small
county than in a large coun-
ty," she stated.
Hospital administrator
Ron Gilliard asked for help
on preventing additional
Medicaid cuts. School
board representatives asked
for continued support on
funding for the new BHS, as
welt as future new schools.
Coley and Lawson pledged
their ongoing support.


years. In addition to a
four-year college scholar-
ship, each recipient is
provided with a mentor
to provide motivation,
support, and tutoring,
plus continuous monitor-
ing and intervention
services to support the
student's educational
achievements, along
with college and career
counseling.
In accepting these
scholarships, the stu-
dents will sign perform-
ance contracts agreeing
to get good grades,
exhibit positive behavior,
demonstrate a willing-
ness to, work with their
mentor, and remain drug
and crime free. If the
students adhere to their
contracts, then they


receive their four year
college scholarships.
The four-year schol-
arships that were award-
ed to David, Michaela,
and Trevor were made
possible through mone-
tary donations from peo-
ple and businesses in our
community. The number
of scholarships awarded
each year depends
entirely upon donations
received. Donations
made to the program
stay in our county and go
to our students.

Jobs available through




"Florida Back to Work"


If you are looking for a
job and have a dependent
eighteen years of age or
under living in your house-
hold you may be able to
find employment through
the Florida Back to Work
program. Florida Back to
Work is open to Florida
residents with a household
income of less than two
hundred percent of the
poverty level with a
dependent eighteen or
younger living in the house-
hold.
The Chipola Regional
Workforce Development
Board had over ninety
employers in five counties
sign up with several hun-
dred jobs under the Florida
Back to Work program.
These employers are will-
ing to hire individuals qual-
ified for the program in a
variety of jobs.
The CRWDB currently
expects employers to be
able to hire individuals
beginning around February
15; however it is possible
this date could be pushed
back closer to the end of
the month according to
Richard Williams,
Executive Director of the"

gram all across the state
and as such it takes time to
be able to move to the next
step," Williams said. "Our
intent is to move forward as
fast as we are allowed and
we encourage people to
come in now to be qualified
so they will be available for
interviews as soon as the
program allows. People
that wait until later may
find that the job they would
have been perfect for
already filled."
Individuals determined
qualified for the program
are not guaranteed a job;
however, those in the pro-
gram will be given an
opportunity to interview
with employers for jobs
open only to those qualified


Wages will be paid by the
employer and pay levels for
the positions vary by
employer and by the
requirements of the posi-
tion.
Position openings range
from entry level to those
that require specialized
skills and/or advanced
degrees. Some of the jobs in
the program are short-term
and others are considered
permanent. The jobs to be
filled are from a wide vari-
ety of employers from the
public sector, non-profit as
well as private companies.

gram and you are interest-

for employment under this
program. Income levels are
determined using only the
past thirty days of total

said the usage of only the
past thirty days is key for
many individuals.
"A lot of families have
experienced job loss and
the fact that we are looking
at thirty days of wages
means it really doesn't

made last year," Williams
said. "We strongly encour-

ALTHA, JANUARY 25-
-Although they trailed only
5 points at halftime, 21-16,
Altha's Junior Varsity

ond half offensive onslaught

Coach Sidney Granger
after the game.
Those factors cost Altha
(6-9) to lose Round One of
the "Battle of the Wildcats,"
65-60.
The offensive leader for

ing 5 3-pointers and he was

pointer) and he* had 2
steals. Ethan Ellis chipped
in 4 points and was credited
with an assist.*

JANUARY 26--Trailing 21-
10 after three quarters of

score, 26-20.
Ryan Wood was the Top
Cat in scoring with 10
points. He also had 2

Rogers bagged 7 points, led
the Wildcats with 6 steals.
and he had an assist. Jae
Fielder chipped in 2 points
and pulled down 3
rebounds. Tyler McClellan
added a free throw and he
was credited with an assist.
Battling a much taller
Gators team, the Varsity
Wildcats (6-10) were not
intimidated. They played
toe-to-toe with Wewa but
came up short in the end,
65-59.
Tyler Hamilton was the
offensive leader with 19
points and 4 rebounds. He
also had 2 steals and an'


assist. Jacob Warner

BHS to host St. Joe for



Senior Night Thursday


BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
It was two out of three
for the Blountstown Tigers
last week as they defeated
Bonifay and Wewa, then
got edged by Liberty
County.
The Tigers hosted
Bonifay last Tuesday night
and won, 52-33.
"Our star forward.Leon
Broxton twisted his ankle
in the first quarter," says
Coach Tony Davis. "We
played basically the whole
game without him. Bonifay
beat us by 25 points at the
beginning of the season so it
just shows we made
tremendous improvement


to beat them without Leon
and so impressively."
PJ. Buggs ,was the top
scorer with 19 points, fol-
lowed by Cavon Cox with
nine. "Paul Mosley had
only two points, but he fin-
ished up with nine assists
and really just controlled
'the tempo of the game,",
Coach Davis remarks.
The Tigers traveled to
Wewa Thursday and'
brought back a 60-46 win.
Cox led BHS with 14
points, followed by Jawon
Mosley with 12, Buggs
with 11, Brion Simmons
with six, and Ryan
McIntyre with four.
The Tigers were in
* Bulldog country Friday


night to take' on Liberty
County in one of the most
exciting games of the sea-
son.
The Tigers led at half-
time, 28-22, but the
Bulldogs came out biting in
the third quarter and
outscored BHS, 14-7. The
game was tied 47-47 at the
'end of four quarters and
went into overtime. The
Bulldogs outscored the
Tigers, 3-2, and edged
BHS, 50-49. After defeat-
ing LCHS by 29 points ear-
lier in the season, it was
definitely a disappointing
loss for the Tigers.
Buggs was the top scorer
for BHS with 19 points
including three 3-pointers.


Simmons followed with 14
points and Cox with nine.
The Tigers traveled to
Franklin County Tuesday
night (details unavailable at
press time). Senior night is
Thursday when Port St.
Joe comes to -town. Game
time is 6 p.m. for J.V, fol-
lowed by varsity at 7:30

Literacy Week celebration Children's book author visits


Teacher Feature
by Daphne Pace
Mrs. Strong, my favorite
teacher, has been teaching
at Blountstown High
School for 3 years. Before
teaching at BHS, Mrs.
Strong worked in Radio
and television for over 20
years. She's married with
three grown children and
six grandchildren. I
During high school, her
best subject was English
(she found it easy to under-
stand) with biology being
her worst (found it gross
and confusing.) At the age
of 36, she decided to get a
college degree, She got an
A.A. from Chipola, and a
B.S. in Communication
from FSU just before her
40th birthday. Five years
later, she decided to leave
the TV business and took
more classes to become a
teacher.
What makes her so spe-
cial is her passion for the
subject and students she
teaches. She mostly enjoys
teaching because she loves
seeing students grow intel-
lectually over time. Mrs.
Strong chose to be an
F4glisb ,teaphters since, she.
loves books,, writing, and
words. 'Her favorite book is
Redeeming Love, by
Francine Rivers. She tries
to make learning fun and
her students love her for

Liberty County High JROTC donates

60 pairs of glasses to Lions Club
As a community support project, the LCHS Army JROTC program collected 60 pairs of
glasses for the Bristol Lions Club this year. Cadets MeMe Smith and Jacob Reed were in
charge of the effort. Anyone wanting to donate old eye glasses can drop them off at the high
school and ask that they be put in the JROTC box. The Lions Club takes these glasses,
cleans them and gives them to people that need them .both in the United States and over-
seas. The Lions Club focuses on eyesight and educates the community about the risks of
diabetes and the loss of eyesight. The local Lions Club meets the 2nd and 4th Tuesday at
the Apalachicola Restaurant'in Bristol. Above, Cadets present eye glasses to Lions Club
members. Shown are (from left) Cadet Jacob Reed, Cadet MeMe Smith, Jeannette Vinson,
Tony Patterson, Ruth Pickron, Bob Pickron, and Billy Smith.
