BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
What to do with
Altha School has been
debated for years. The
old main building has
been deemed unsuitable
for students. Portable
classrooms are unsafe
during severe weather.
When the proposal to
consolidate Altha and
Blountstown' high.
schools was shot down,
leaders went back to the
drawing board.
During a special.
workshop Tuesday, for-
mer Altha Principal
Ronnie Hand, who is
now overseeing con-
struction of the new
Blountstown High
School, proposed a plan
that seemed to get nods
of approval from every-
one at the table.
Hand went over the
history of building

DOWNTOWN REVrTAUZATION


Main Street kicks

off'Paint the oIwn'
Blountstown Main Street is about to make a huge
impact in downtown Blountstown with a chunk of
change they've raised and some buckets of paint.
About three years ago, they enlisted an artist to
prepare renderings (above) that depict what down-
town could look like with just a few simple improve-
ments. The results were amazing. Coordinating colors
on all the buildings clearly created a clean, cohesive
image that would be inviting to customers.
Fast forward to 2010 and the economy is so unsta-
ble, Main Street members know the last thing many
struggling business owners can afford to do is paint
their buildings. Enter the Main Street "Paint the
Town"' project.
Main Street is putting up all the money to pressure
wash and paint each building on the south side of
Central Avenue East, along with one on the west side.
These include all the buildings from the antique store
at the corner of South Pear, all the way down to the old
Mexican restaurant, plus the Mr. Santos building next
to Diamond Corner. The Howell buildings were
recently painted, so they won't' be redone. The only
commitment asked of owners is to maintain the work.
If you are a building or business owner, you are
asked to sign up for this free project. Call Kelli at 674-
1004 or 643-7788 to receive your form.

CRIME

Sexual

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
What's the difference
between a sexual predator
and a sexual offender?
Plenty. Both have been
convicted of sex crimes, but
predators are described by
Florida
law as

Although there are sev-
eral sex offenders in
Calhoun and Liberty coun-
ties, there are only a hand-
ful of predators. And one of
those almost slipped under
the radar by failing to regis-
ter recently.
Larry Wayne McCullen,
51, of 29667 SW Villas
Sumner Road in Hosford,
was arrested last week by
the Liberty County
Sheriff's Office for failing to
register as a sexual preda-
tor.
According to prison
records, McCullen was con-

COUNTY ISSUE

Alcohol by

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
Liquor laws in Calhoun
County were up for discus-
sion at the last two County
Commission meetings.
Steve Mears, Sr., who is
involved with the American
Legion, asked the board to
consider putting a measure
on the ballot to sell alcohol
by the glass.
County Attorney Matt
Fuqua researched the
request and advised 25 per-
cent of registered voters
have to sign a petition in
order for the proposal to be
placed on the ballot.

Readers express their opinions on





loophole in the state retirement law


Letter to Editor,
Just because there is a
loophole in the law does not
make it right to take advan-
tage of it, nor does it make
it fair to the tax payers of
Calhoun County.
If Mr. O'Bryan is giving
up two of his titles to Joe
Wood and Angie Smith
then he should also give up
two of his salaries. If he
made a salary of $40,000
and drew around $40,000
in retirement, he would be
up to the $80,000 range,
which is a very good salary
for Calhoun County.
I guess with Mr.
O'Bryan "double dipping"
he will be drawing around
$120,000 + yearly which is
insane for tax payers to
have to pay. And how
many years will he do this?
Five years? Ten years?
Clerk Attaway says that


some people are over paid,
but O'Bryan is not one of
them. That is just
Attaway's opinion and she
always seems to have one.
I feel quite sure that Joe
Wood could take over for
Mr. O'Bryan and the coun-
ty could save the $80,000
in salary for O'Bryan.
They claim the county is
broke, then waste money
like this.
How many more people
in Calhoun County are in
the DROP program? And
will they also decide to
"double dip"' by drawing
their retirement and con-
tinue to work?
If a person can draw
$40,000 to $60,000 in
retirement, retire and let
somebody else have a job.
As for the
Commissioners that voted
to go along with this, I pray

Letter to the Editor,
The loophole in the
state retirement law is just
that: A STATE RETIRE-
MENT LAW Not a
Calhoun County Law. The
Clerk of the Court did not
make the law nor can the
Clerk of the Court change
it. The state legislators
made the law with the
loophole. Come July 1, as
The County Record states,
the law will be changed.
The retiree will have to
wait six months before re-
applying so others will have
a chance to apply for the
job.
This State Retirement
law has been around
awhile. It has been used in


many cases from national
levels down to our own
local people. It is lawful,
regardless of what we think
about it. But we do have a
way to help bring change
about we can VOTE. NO
VOTE NO COM-
PLAINT. So be informed -
go to meetings, county, city,
etc. Grants are monies
from the government to
help improve our commu-
nities and our lives, but
grant money is not free
money it is our tax dollars
in action. We do get some
benefits from our taxes
paid to the government. So
get out and VOTE for what
you believe in.
You have heard the old
saying, "There is no free
lunch".
Well, there isn't.

Never A Dull Moment u


by J.K. Newsome




Andrew and the best day ever


Andrew, 27, stood hold-
ing hands with his 48 year
old mom, proudly mesmer-
ized by the beauty' of her
first grandchild, a baby gifl
named Florence, his grand-
mother's niame.- Andrek\
was elated to have given
his mother a granddaugh-
ter and to honor his moth-
er's mother, who like
Andrew's mom, had raised
her child alone. They did
not speak for some time,
standing there at the glass;
tears welled in both their
eyes at the thought of what
they both had endured-in
childhood, so very well
worth it. Ten perfect fin-
gers, ten perfect toes, and
Andrew's nose. Andrew
thought this may be the
best day ever.
Andrew, 25, stood at the
alter. As he exchanged
vows with the most beauti-
ful woman in the world, his
beaming mother looked on,
as well as numerous family
and friends. Later, sharing
a dance with his mother, he
could not take his eyes off
his new bride, his bride,
dancing with her father, her
eyes on Andrew. Andrew
kissed and hugged his
mom, and reached for the
hand of his wife, as they
stared deeply in each
other's eyes, he could feel
the ring on his left hand, a
reminder that this indeed
was, real. Andrew thought
this may be the best day
ever.
Andrew, 24, stood with
several other smiling stu-
dents at college graduation,
years of study culminating
to this night. As the names
were called, and Andrew
took side steps in time with
his row, he eagerly awaited
the sound of his own name
to fill the auditorium.
Walking towards the podi-
um, he found the two most
important faces in his life,
his mother, and his future
bride. The angelic pair had
their arms around each
other, tears of love stream-
ing down blushing cheeks;
Andrew could feel the hap-
piness emanate from the
women he cherished.
Andrew thought this may
be the best day ever.
Andrew, 17, stood on
the forty yard line, senior
night, the last high school
football game. Memories of
all the games and all the
practices seemed to make
him dizzy. He stood arm
and arm with his mother as
the crowd cheered for him
and his fellow classmates


standing with their own.
proud parents. Andrew
turned to his mom to find
her already looking at him,
tie' mant 't"saV thark you
for aJl the time she spent
d .i6- him -t4lo!-praetisee
selling magazine subscrip-
tions, working in conces-
sion stands, making trips in
crowded fan buses and,
mostly, for being at every
game, from pee-wee to
now, except for :the year
she had the flu so bad she
could not even walk.
Andrew's mother had read
his thoughts it seemed, she
put one finger on his lips
and said it was truly her
pleasure, just enjoy the
moment. Andrew thought
this might be the best night
ever.
Andrew, 5, stood at the
door of kindergarten, he
had his best friend under
one arm. He had told his
mother that very same
morning that he was not
going. Andrew felt no good
could come from a place
that would not let his moth-
er go, too, even if they were
going to color, play and
have stories read to them
and even take naps.
Andrew did not know
much, but he did know
these were some of his
mother's favorite things to
do, and if this place called
school wouldn't let her
come, too, he wanted no
part of it. Andrew's mother
had thought all of this was
so darn cute, and as unbe-
lievable as it sounds, it
made her love him even
more. She worked out a
deal, Andrew could take
his favorite stuffed bear as
her stand in, and no one
need know it was really
her. The only way she
would allow Fuzzy to take
her place during school,
was if Andrew agreed to
show her everything he
learned each day. A reluc-
tant Andrew agreed to the
arrangement. And even
though she felt the slightest
bit of pain two weeks later
when Andrew asked if he
could try school all by him-
self, she still felt it could be
the best day ever.
Andrew, new born, lay
sleeping on his mother's
chest. He was perfect, ten
fingers, ten toes....and his
mother's nose. Even
though she knew it would
be rough, Andrew's mother
knew, just from looking at
this perfect little being,
they could make it work.
All her fears seemed to


have been passed with the
last contraction, for now,
she knew she was alone no
more, this she thought,
might just be the best day'
ever.
Andrew, three months
from' his due date.
Andrew's mother was
working the late shift at the
grocery store, some
younger woman had asked
her to switch with her
because of a hot date. She
needed the extra hours, but
had always hated walking
to her car so late in the
dark. Tonight those fears
came true. A man who had
robbed a bank just five
hours earlier had been lay-
ing in wait. The robber
mostly wanted a car,
money he had. It had been
rainy and cold that evening
and he wanted.this town in
someone's rear view mir-
ror. Andrews's mother
pleaded with the man not
to take her keys, as he
could surly see, she was
pregnant and could not
bear to walk any further.
She offered him money,
this seemed to anger him,
and for reason no one will
ever know, he shot her.
Lying on the cold, wet
pavement, life oozing from
her horrified body, as the
robber snatched her. purse
from her clutched, weaken-
ing hands, all the contents
save the keys falling on her
chest, her last thoughts
turned to her unborn child,
dying she realized, he
would have no best
days.... ever.
As I have told you in the
past, not all of my
"Moments" are humorous.
I was listening to Capitol
Report on WFSU the other


evening about a bill pro-
posed here in Florida,
S290. I tried to find out
more about what I heard
online, but could not find
the quotes I had hsar&d,
but, I can give you th'ifun
down. The bill's intent is to
make it a double homicide
if someone kills a pregnant
woman and the child dies,
too. No brainer, one would
think, but it seems it is
being fought by those that
feel it would lead to restric-
tions on a woman's right to
choose. If memory serves,
the sponsor of the bill was
asked by a committee per-
son if the intent of this bill
was to give a fertilized egg
the rights of an adult?
Well, yes.
I am not trying to make
this a political thing, but
some are so afraid of
verbage that may hurt
their cause in future
Supreme Court findings.
To me, it is crystal clear
that the murder of preg-
nant women is indeed a
double homicide, but what
struck me after listening to
the report, the moment I
had, was I saw the life that
would be stolen from a
child, the fictional story you
just read. No one would
argue that the mother had
been murdered, but if you
consider what the child
lost, and if it makes it easi-
er for you to swallow, the
choice of the mother to
have a child has been taken
away. This must be
acknowledged and pun-
ished as well. Can't we all
agree to protect the most
vulnerable here, the one
who has absolutely no say,
the child?? That would be
the best day ever.

Woman's Club holds an

international gathering


The key word at the
March 18th Blountstown
Woman's Club meeting was
indeed, "International."
Gathering monthly at the
W.T. Neal Civic Center, the
well-attended event easily
transcended borders with
not only the colorful and
festive dress of members,
but also with the delectable
cuisine, representing vari-
ous countries, that the
ladies had contributed.
Jessie Mae Price,
President of the local serv-
ice club, welcomed all pres-
ent. Special thanks went to
Clara McCroan, who with
the help of Lila Smith, dec-
orated the tables with patri-
otic centerpieces in red,
white, and blue foliage and
stars. Though the head
table had two authentic,
handmade cloth dolls from
Mexico (courtesy of Jessie
Mae Price and trips -she
and her granddaughters
had made to that country),
emphasis on our own
American heritage and the
feelings of patriotism was
felt first and foremost in
view of the current world
situation, and in honor of
our troops, all over the
world.
Linda Smith gave the
devotional, based on a
'Guidepost' selection and
Psalm 37. Many seem
harassed and overly busy
today, and in slowing down,
being patient, noting priori-
ties, one can far better focus
on what is really important,
receive desired results of
what is needed and wanted.
The Pledge of Allegiance
followed.
Door prizes were won by
Aileen McQuagge, delight-
ed with a small authentic,
handmade Greek vase with
Trojan design, and J.P
Dunbar, an authentic red,

represented, a few being
Quiche from France, Corn
beef and cabbage from

Medicare contractor ends

service; SHINE can help


Florida's SHINE pro-
gram (Serving Health
Insurance Needs of Elders)
today launched an exten-
sive public outreach cam-
paign to provide reassur-
ance and free assistance to
55,000 older Floridians
who previously received
their Medicare Part D pre-
,scription drug coverage,
through Fox Insurance
Company.
The federal Centers for
Medicare & Medicaid
Services terminated its con-
tract with' Fox Insurance
after determining that the
plan's "significant deficien-
cies" jeopardized the health
and safety of Fox enrollees
in Florida and elsewhere.
Floridians affected by
the immediate termination
of Fox Insurance will not
lose prompt access to their
medications, and SHINE
counselors will help them
enroll in alternative
Medicare plans through
May 1. Enrollees who do
not choose a plan by that
federal deadline will be
enrolled in a new plan by
Medicare.'
"Our only mission is to
protect the health and safe-
ty of older Floridians. We
will do everything possible
- as quickly as possible to
ensure a smooth transition
to new coverage for seniors
affected by this action,"
said state Elder Affairs
Secretary E. Douglas
Beach.
Counselors from
SHINE, a program of the
Department of Elder
Affairs, will be available
through the state's Elder
Helpline, which can be
reached toll-free at 1-800-
96-ELDER (1-800-963-
5337). In addition, SHINE
will implement a public


awareness campaign
designed to reach affected
seniors in their communi-
ties.
The U.S. Department of
Health and Human
Services will provide
Florida with $274,000 to
support the public outreach
activity, but SHINE is not
waiting for the federal funds
to arrive before initiating its
campaign and assistance
efforts.
Medicare said benefici-
aries who had been in the
Fox Insurance plan should
see no change in their drug
coverage at pharmacies.
Until they select another
plan, all Fox Insurance
enrollees will receive their
medications through a pro-
gram run by Medicare.
Approximately 125,000
seniors nationwide are
affected.
More information about
the termination of Fox
Insurance Company's con-
tract with Medicare is

Colon Cancer is a leading cause of

death in both men and women.

This is very unfortunate since the occurrence of colon cancer is often
preventable if individuals will undergo the recommended preventative
screening examinations. The recommended examination is a
colonoscopy which examines the entire colon. Colonoscopy is
recommended at age 50. However, in patients who have a family
history of colon cancer of polyps, examinations may be recommended
at an earlier age.

Teacher Feature
With a twinkle* in her
blue eyes, a stride that
could lead an army, Mrs.
Sandra White carries out
her teaching duties daily at
BHS. She is the lead
teacher ip the CCC
(Calhoun County
Challenge) classroom and
along with her co-workers;
she finds her days to be
very active, full of life and
on the go! Mrs. White has
taught for twenty years, 13
years at BHS and 7 years
at BMS. Her college back-
ground started at Valencia
Community College (AA),
then FSU (Bachelors and
Masters), and finally
FAMU (Certification in Ed
Leadership). Mrs. White is
a graduate from BHS, class
of '68,' and has managed to
keep the BHS campus
beneath her feet and in her
heart, The CCC classroom
is located behind the lunch-
room and has recently been
remodeled, just walk in and
see the colorful walls, spa-
cious rooms, and the invit-
ing, fun learning centers!
Mrs. White is married to
David White and they have
a.",son, David Joe White.
They also have two grand-
sons, Matthew and Drew.
She as well has an intrigu-
ing extended family of 8

sion of Mrs. White. She has
been to the great states of
Alaska and Hawaii, has
ventured to Canada,
Mexico, England, France,
and has.Italy scheduled for
2012! Her favorite book is
anything written by Tom
Clancy? That's right! She
finds his stories of the possi-
bilities of what could hap-
pen in our country very
captivating.
Mrs. White certainly
has a special and extraordi-
nary spot at BHS. She will
continue to strive for, pro-
tect, and teach her stu-
dents. Her biggest pet
peeve is students that could
be successful but won't and
be assured she will see suc-

County and noted that spe-
cial facilities funding, being
used to pay for the new
BHS, came about in 1982,
but Calhoun County lead-
ers never went after it until
the current project because
they didn't want to levy the
2 mills required. "We didn't
want to pay the taxes," he
remarked. "We didn't par-
ticipate because we had
comfortable schools and our
kids were performing at the
top."
But Hand pointed out
those were much simpler
times when a Selectric
typewriter was the most
expensive piece of equip-
ment students would use in
the classroom.
"Our students still per-
form well, but we do have a
weak link at the high school
level," Hand noted.
''That's a direct reflection
of not being exposed to
technology and not being
able to travel."

state will pay for," Hand
explained.
With that said, Hand
said there is still a chance
to get a new school in Altha
for pre-k through 12th
which he estimates will cost
between $11 and $13 mil-
lion. Around $2 million of
funds from the state was
paid to the school district
following contamination
cleanup from old fuel tanks
once buried underground
on the Altha campus. That
would be seed money for
the project, Hand suggest-
ed, along with seeking a
legislative appropriation for
the rest of the money need-
ed. "The economy is tight,
and if it stays down, it's not
likely that would happen,"
said Hand, adding that it
wouldn't hurt to try.
Should that plan fall
through, he suggested going
after the special facilities

It was a bright spring,
the city of Jerusalem was
crowded with people who
had come to celebrate the
passover from every part of
Palestine.
As they looked toward
the east, they saw a group
of people rounding the spur
of Olivet, waving palm
branches and crying,
"Hosanna to the son of
David." In front of this
group rode on a donkey
Jesus of Nazareth who
many believed to be the
long looked for Messiah.
When word of His
approach reached the city
many set out to meet Him,
for they had heard how He
raised Lazarus from the
dead. As the two groups
met on the slope of the
mountain they came down
toward the city. Those
going before and those fol-
lowing all joined in the cry,
"Hosanna to the son of
David! Blessed is he that
comes in the name of the
Lord!"
As they entered the
gates to the city and passed
along its streets they were
still shouting, waving palm
branches and casting their
garments before Jesus in
the way. People looked
down from the roof tops,
others peered through their
windows, still others looked
on from doorways and
those who were in the
streets turned aside to let
this strange procession
pass. "Who is this?" was
heard running through the
crowd. "This is the Son of
David" they answered.
"Hosanna, hosanna,
blessed is he that comes in
the name of the Lord!"
And they proceeded on to
the temple.
The hour had come for.,

First Baptist Church
Helping people follow in the footsteps of Christ


Jesus to declare Himself.
He had spent 30 years in
preparation for His work
and all the time He was a
king in disguise.
He had grown up from
childhood in no way distin-
guished from the other chil-
dren and had served his
apprenticeship as a carpen-
ter, sharing the common lot
of toiling men.
During his ministry He
wore no halo, displayed no
insignia of office, but rather
kept Himself from being
known. Now and then, He
spoke briefly of his divine
plans and purposes, but as
one who was aware that
unveiling of His divine roy-
alty would defeat His plan.
He could afford to wait
in confidence. As the scrip-
ture says, "He that believes
shall not make haste." In
the temptation of the
wilderness the devil offered
Him the whole world with-
out going to the cross, just
worship me was his call.
He refused the temptation
to sin.
But now the hour has
come, there is no longer'
any occasion for withhold-
ing the truth concerning
His being the Son of God
and His purpose here.
He will announce His
kingship today, but in a
peculiar manner. It would
be wholly unworthy of Him
to celebrate a triumph like
the kings of this world. It's
for Caesar, Alexander and
the mighty conquerors of
this world to ride on war
horses with noble guards
and armies of defenders,
captives in chains and long
procession of slaves.
The procession of this
King of kings shall be a
protest against the vain and
vulgar fashion of carnal:


ambition. "Thy king comes
unto you, meek and riding :,
upon a donkey."
The king is also the
Lamb slain from the foun-
dation of the world. This
triumph would mean noth- ,,
ing if Jesus had just been a
man, but he was the Son of A
God! He comes to die, to
triumph in death, to tri-,D
umph over death, to tri-:
umph in behalf of all the
death of men.

Ride on, ride on in i
majesty!
In lowly pomp, ride on
to die!
O Christ, your triumph q
now begins
O'er captive death and d
conquered sin.
ri
Ride on ride on, in
majesty! o0
The winged squadron of ,
the sky. O
Look down with sad and d-
wondering eyes :d
To see the approaching :;
sacrifice. 3

Ride on,-ride on in O
majesty! q
Your last and fiercest ,i
strife is nigh! ;T
The Father on His sap- ;j
phire throne d
Expects His own anoint- t
ed Son. ,A

Ride on, ride on in a
majesty!'
In lowly pomp, ride on
to die.
Bow your meek head to
mortal pain
Then take, O God! Thy
power and reign.

He rode to conquer
death and he triumphed
abundantly for he tri- ii
umphed over death, hell
Sand the grave.

Attorney General warns Floridians...



Beware of con artists, census scams


Attorney General Bill
McCollum has issued a
consumer advisory warning


Floridians about scams
related to the 2010 U.S.
Census.


This 'month, census
forms are being delivered
to each household through-

out the United States, and
the Attorney General
advised Floridians to
beware of any efforts by
con artists to collect per-
sonal data or engage in
other fraud related to the
census. The Attorney
General also cautioned
Floridians to verify the sur-
vey is legitimate if they
have any concerns.
"Before submitting per-
sonal information, our citi-
zens should make sure they
are answering a legitimate
census request, not a
scam," said Attorney
General McCollum.
The Attorney General
offered the following tips
from the U.S. Census
Bureau for consumers to
remember when participat-
ing in the 2010 Census:
V The U.S. Census


Bureau does not conduct
the 2010 Census via the
Internet nor will the U.S.
Census Bureau send emails
about participating in the
2010 Census. Do not
respond to an email request
for personal data.
V The U.S. Census
Bureau will never ask for
your full social security
number. Do not provide it
to anyone claiming to work
for the Bureau.
V The U.S. Census
Bureau does not ask for
money or donations. Do not
pay any fees to someone
who claims that fees are a
necessary part of the
process.
V The U.S. Census
Bureau will never request
PIN codes, passwords, or
other similar information
for credit cards, banks or


other financial -accounts.
Do not provide this person-
al identification information
to someone who may be
trying to commit fraud.
Consumers should
report any fraudulent activ-
ity to ITSO.Fraud.
Reporting@census.gov or
contact-the United States
Postal Service if they
receive mail from someone
falsely representing the
Census Bureau.
Consumers may also verify
the legitimacy of their sur-
vey by calling the regional
census office regarding mail
surveys or the National
Processing Center at 1-
800-392-675 for phone sur-
veys. For more informa-
tion, including the location
of the closest regional cen-
sus office, consumers may
visit http://www.census.gov.

over four pounds of pot

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor

A tip led investigators to
the home of an Altha man
who eventually admitted to
being a pot dealer.
vThomas Franklin Hitt
was arrested Thursday on
charges of possession of
more than 20 grams of mar-
ijuana and possession with
intent to sell or distribute.
According to the
Calhoun County Sheriff's
Office, Inv. Mark Mallory,
along with BPD Inv. Tim
Partridge and Dep. Eddie THOMAS Hin
Dalton, conducted a "knock
and talk" at Hitt's home on Miller Road in Altha. They
advised Hitt information had been received that he was
selling a large quantity of marijuana. Hitt consented to the
investigators searching, but would not allow a K-9 to do a
sniff search. He admitted to having some: marijuana
roaches in a can, but said that was it. However, a search
of the master bedroom turned up four ounces of marijua-
na under his pillow. When Dep. Dalton picked up a large
bag of horse feed, Hitt reportedly remarked, "You got
me." Inside the bag, a trash bag with a cat food bag were
discovered with a shrink wrapped package of marijuana
hidden that weighed 4.5 pounds. A set of digital scales
were found next to the bed.
Hitt allegedly admitted the marijuana was more than
for personal use and he had been selling the pot. He was
booked into the Calhoun County Jail and posted bond the
next day.

went haywire Saturday,
after a Blountstown woman
fled the scene, leading to
her arrest.

33, was charged with resist-
ing arrest without violence
and failing to sign a citation.
According to the
Calhoun County Sheriff's

fic Saturday night near the ADRIA AULTMAN
Calhoun County Industrial
Park on SR 71 when he pulled Aultman over for going 68'
mph in a 55 mph zone. When he approached the vehicle,:
Aultman reportedly asked the reason for'the stop in what:
Dep. Norris described as a rude manner. When he told&
her he clocked her at 68 mph, she reportedly stated, "Ya'll:
aint got nothing else to do but harass someone!"
Dep. Norris went back'to his patrol car and wrote out.
a citation, putting Aultman's speed at only 64 mph so the
fine would be minimum. When he returned to her vehicle,
he began explaining her options, then Aultman allegedly
snatched the ticket from his hand, threw it on the dash
and said, "This is bull*&$#!" She then t6ok off rapidly as
he stood close to her vehicle and shouted for her to stop,
but she fled.
Deputy Jared Nichols pulled up as Aultman sped off
and Dep. Norris advised she drove off without signing the
citation. Dep. Nichols caught up with Aultman and had
his lights and siren engaged. She failed to yield and pro-
ceeded to her parents' house where she stopped. When
Dep. Nichols asked why she didn't sign the citation,
Aultman reportedly became irate, said she didn't have to
sign it, and began cursing at Dep. Nichols, as well as Dep.
Norris who had arrived. Aultman was placed under arrest
after refusing to sign and then became uncooperative,
pulling away from Dep. Norris. She was eventually hand-
cuffed and booked into the Calhoun County Jail.
