The County Record

investigates the real

story behind the

termination of

BHS Principal
Superintendent D an Barber. BHSPrincipal
Tommy McClellanuane Barber. Duane Barber



WHO'S IN CHARGE?


BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
After three years at Blountstown High School,
Duane Barber is packing up his office after being ter-
minated. His stint at the school was longer than most
in recent years, with the average stay two years for
various reasons.
So why is Barber not being asked back? That was
the question The County Record posed this week to
Barber, Superintendent Tommy McClellan, and
School Board members.
"Morale was low at the school and I just didn't feel
like people felt the school was friendly and accommo-
dating," says Superintendent McClellan. He says he
got along fine with Barber, but adds, "I try to listen to
a lot of people."
When asked if the decision was politically motivat-
ed, McClellan responds, "I didn't take Duane out of
there to get votes."
Barber agreed to share with The County Record a
letter he sent to McClellan, Assistant Superintendent
Vicki Davis, and School Board members. In it, he
explains he was directed upon being hired for the
BHS principal post by former Superintendent Mary
Sue Neves to make student discipline his top priority.:
Taking that need seriously, Barber used the Student
Code of Conduct and Discipline as his guide and says


he stuck to it consistently. "We do this in order to
make sure all students are treated fairly and firmly,
regardless of who they are," he remarks. "When we
deal with discipline issues with students, there can be
times that the parents don't agree with the punish-
ment handed down. This is the reason that we feel it
is a must to follow the guidelines as set forth by school
board policy. Both administrators and students know
fully what the consequences are for their actions
when an infraction occurs. They know we are consis-
tent in our expectations for good behavior and we will
not tolerate inappropriate actions without correcting
them by following the Code of Conduct."
Sounds simple enough the School Board makes
the rules, the principal follows them. However,
Barber soon learned that's not always the case.
School Board members are often presented with a
call to vote on whether or not to uphold their own
policies. Here are a few examples Barber shared in
his letter.
Case #1
School board members were recently asked to
vote on whether or not a student should be allowed to
march at graduation.
Barber says the student violated four school poli-
cies in oiida :y"K '""... ....i '* .

Bristol man jailed

for sexual battery


BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
A Bristol man is fac-
ing sexu-
al bat-
ter y
charges
after
allegedly
attempt-
ing to
rape a VAUGHT
neigh-
bor.
Dewey Dewayne
"Skip" Vaught, 57, was
taken into custody
Thursday.
According to the
Liberty County
Sheriff's Office,
Vaught's neighbor on
Gobbler Court said she
was hanging out with
Vaught's juvenile
daughter a:-d he
allowed both of them to
drink beer. The girl
alleged he began mak-


ing inappropriate com-
ments to her, then took
her back to a bedroom
and told her he could
help her get a job with
the CIA. He proceeded
to tell her stories of his
involvement with the
CIA and the mafia.
The girl said Vaught's
wife confirmed his
tales. Around 3 a.m.,
the girl said Vaught's
daughter came over to
her house and said her
dad wanted to talk
more with her about a
job. The girl said she
was alone with Vaught
in a Jeep when he
pulled her shorts down
and threatened to kill
her and her family. She
described the assault,
but said she resisted
and managed to
escape. Vaught later
told authorities the
encounter was consen-
tual.

The County Record, JUNE 2, 2010, Page 2


Sportsmen demand fair shake for fair chase


Dear,Editor:
The Florida Wildlife
Commission is in the
process of regulation revi-
sions for the sportsmen who
use and operate Fox and
Coyote Fair Chase
Enclosures. These are
large area, natural environ-
ment enclosures where
sporting breeds of hounds
are allowed, under thought-
fully regulated conditions,
to chase coyotes and foxes,
with the pursuit ending in a
safe guarded animal, who
will get to lead the hounds


on another chase on anoth-
er day. It is NOT a hunt
and the stock animals are
NOT killed.
There has been very
substantial misstatement
and misunderstanding
about these Fair Chase
operations, largely prompt-
ed by the anti-hunting,
anti-sportsmen animal
rights groups, which seek to
wreck all outdoor sporting
in Florida.
Let's also remember
that we have a facility right
here in Calhoun County,


which hosts six to eight
National Affiliated events a
year. These participants
come to our county from all
across the United States
and Canada to spend their
money by staying in our
local hotels, buying fuel,
eating at our local estab-
lishments, and spending
money on any thing else
they may need. With the
economy in the tank, every
bit of business that one can
get should be greatly
appreciated.
I'm sure many of you
are thinking that this may
be a sport that is of no
interest to you. We often
times catch ourselves say-
ing "That will never hap-
pen to me." But this is just
one step closer to taking
your rights away. A large
percentage of Calhoun


County is made up of
sportsmen. This same
group of people, who are
trying to shut foxhunting
down, has all other types of
hunting and sporting activi-
ties on their agenda as well.
It is in the best interest for
all business owners, sports-
men, farmers, ranchers,
and people who participate
in equine related activities
to contact the following
individuals.
We encourage everyone
to look closely at the accu-
rate facts and e-
mail/write/call the decision
makers to support the
preservation of the Fair
Chase sport.
A few of the facts (which
have been distorted by
anti-sporting speakers
recently) include these cor-
rections:


Fair Chase is a "no
kill" sport.
The pursuit animals
are protectively cared for
from purchase on, with
inoculations, food, etc.
Coyotes, the primary
pursuit animals, are an
invasive species to Florida
and have been known to
attack pets, newborn
domestic stock and destroy
farm crops.
The hounds used are a
standard American breed
called Walker Hounds,
with a history that predates
George Washington.
The numbers of
hounds per chase is limited
and the hounds are super-
vised by handlers and game
protectors who accompany
the hounds during the
chase.
The pursuit animals


have, under current regula-
tions, both natural and
manmade escape areas
where they can hide and
rest.
The typical Fair
Chase. enclosure is well
over 500 open acres.
There is much more to
be said,, but a fair shake for
Fair Chase Sports is all that
is asked. Call at 850-488-
4676/e-mail at
www.myfwc.com, or write
the Commission at Florida
Wildlife Commission,
Farris Bryant Building,
620 South Meridian
Street, Tallahassee, FL
32399-1600 to get a fair
shake for Fair Chase
sportsmen.

Somehow, largely through the Grace of God, devoted loyalty, and
the vast pride on the part of many people, The County Record has
never missed an issue.


Dear Editor:
Three Elected Calhoun
County Commissioners
(Majority) are keeping the
Elected Clerk of the Court
in a Partnership with the
County Commission. As a
former County
Commissioner it is my
opinion this kind of activity
is at the root of many prob-
lems which cost a large
amount of money to tax-
payers! ...ie: These four
Elected Officials are violat-
ing their Oaths of Office.


They put their Hand on the
Bible and took an Oath to
uphold the Constitution
which states No person
shall serve in but one
Branch of Government at a
time -Art. II, Sec. 3,
Florida Constitution!
Connected examples of
record: A local landowner
agreed to work with the
County regarding road
right-of-way. He asked that
they should meet him at
the site with details like
they had done with neigh-'


bors. What happened? The
County sued this landown-
er and after much
time/negotiations-etc. paid
him $14,300.00 + Interest

Grateful for our local hospital


Dear Editor,
Please allow me the
opportunity to share my
experience with the
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital.
On May 13, 2010, after
a morning walk at home I
felt extreme discomfort in
my chest and throat and
called my wife to come take
me to the emergency room.
I called the hospital on the
way in and was met by
Phillip and Melissa outside
the ER door. I was taken
into the trauma room and it
was quickly determined by
Dr. Cartaya and staff that I
was having a heart attack.
As I looked up at the famil-
iar faces surrounding me I
felt very confident and
comfortable that these pro-
fessionals were doing


everything possible to save
my life. Yes, I was praying
to God for forgiveness of my
sins and praying to be
healed and thanking Him
for this hospital and the
ones caring for me.
After being stabilized, I
was transported by ambu-
lance to TMH for further
treatment. I was in TMH
for 2 days and because I did
not delay in going to the ER
and because Calhoun-
Liberty Hospital was there
for me, I had no damage to
my heart.

I would like to thank
everyone who was working
at the hospital that day for.
saving my life: Dr.
Cartaya, Phillip Hill, Ron
Gilliard, the nurses and


staff and the three J's who
transported and took care
of me on the way to TMH.
Thanks also to the hos-
pital board, dedicated
employees, elected officials,
the lobbyist and all individ-
uals in both counties who
have fought to keep this
hospital open. A special
thanks to Laddie Williams
for his passion and many
years of hard work and
dedication to keep the hos-
pital doors open. If we did-
n't have our hospital I prob-
ably wouldn't be writing
this letter.
Most of all, I thank God
for giving me a second
chance in life.

Sincerely,
Danny Ryals


Terrorists continue to target U.S.


Letter to the Editor:
The recent attempted
car bombing in New York
City by Faisal Shahzad, a
naturalized American citi-
zen who was born and
raised in Pakistan, reveals
the susceptibility of this
country to acts of terrorism.
Although the explosive
devices planted in New
.York City did not work, this
event serves to point out
that New York City contin-
ues to be a target for terror-
ism. Other cities could be
potential targets for Taliban


and al Qaida terrorists
emanating frorit Middle
East countries or by a
minority of U.S. citizens
with loyalties to these
groups.
We have to carefully
screen people trying to
enter the U.S. from high
threat countries. We have
to infiltrate agents into ter-
rorist organizations outside
and inside this country. We
should report individuals
who threaten this country
or profess loyalty to coun-
tries and organizations that


espouse the destruction of
the U.S.
We need to tighten up
and enact laws that will
allow us to document indi-
viduals who gain natural-
ized American citizenship
by marrying U.S. citizens,
and who might be threats
to this country. Particular
attention should be paid to
applicants from countries
that house, support, train
and promote terrorism.

Donald A. Moskowitz
Londonderry, NH


Leahey are very Happy!
Rather than sincerely
seeking solutions, answers,
and/or reprimands,
Commissioners re-hired
their Administrator
(Manager) with a substan-
tial pay-increase (via. a so-
called loophole in the con-
troversial Retire/Rehire
Drop Program)!
Commissioner Wise
received no second to his
motion regarding the need
for Outside Professional
Need/Management. He
wanted the Commission to
advertise and hire an
Outside Professional
Manager, one who could
spend full-time .with
Commission and have no
other jobs-etc. ...ie: Both
the Elected Clerk of the
Court and the
Administrator (Manager)
hold other high-paying
County Jobs!
Commissioner Pickron
asked for the amount of the
Administrator's Salary, and
no one answered. Maybe
he learned later on his own.
At this writing I don't know
what these salaries total.
The Clerk of the Court's
Salary (by it self) use to be
$80,000.00 Plus per year!
Our voices must become
louder. It takes the 3-Vote
majority to place County-
Wide Commissioner-Voting
on the ballot. Presently we
taxpayers can only vote for
the one Commissioner in
our District! It is my fear
that things will remain the
same until our Commission
is separated from the Clerk
of the Court! Can our
County Commission be
abolished? No, Voters can
create-abolish a city but
with Counties one can only
vote Elected Officers)in or
out and our Governor is
over County Commission-
ers ...so nuff said ...GOD
BLESS OUR FLORIDA
CONSTITUTION AND
TO US ALL!

PORTABLE GENERATORS


Connecting a portable generator directly to your household wiring can be deadly to you and others. A
generator that is directly connected to your home's wiring can "back feed"onto the power lines connected to
your home and injure neighbors or utility workers. The only safe way to connect a portable electric generator to
your existing wiring is to have a licensed electrical contractor install a transfer switch.

The power is in your hands...be safe.

Free saltwater fishing



in Florida this weekend l W


Teaching children a life-
long hobby, instilling an
appreciation for our marine
environment and providing
a fun, family outing are the
objectives for the Panama
City Kids' Fishing Clinic.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC), the
Florida Foundation for
Responsible Angling, Half
Hitch Tackle and the Sport
Fish Restoration Program
will present a free Kids'
Fishing Clinic for children
ages 4-14 on Saturday,
June 5. Registration will be
9 a.m. noon. The clinic
will be at the Panama City
Marina in downtown
Panama City.
This free event will
enable young people to
learn the basics of environ-
mental stewardship, fishing
ethics, angling skills and
safety. In addition, environ-
mental displays will provide
participants with a unique
chance to experience
Florida's marine life first-
hand.


Kids' Fishing Clinics
strive toward several goals,
but the main objective is to
create responsible marine
resource stewards by teach-
ing children about the vul-
nerability of Florida's
marine ecosystems. Also,
the clinics aspire to teach
fundamental saltwater fish-
ing skills and provide par-
ticipants with a positive
fishing experience.
Fishing equipment and
bait will be supplied for
children to use during the
clinic, but those who own
fishing tackle are encour-
aged to bring it. A limited
number of rods and reels
will be given away to partic-
ipants upon completion of
the clinic.

If conditions allow, par-
ticipants will have the
opportunity to practice
their new skills and fish
from the marina. This
event is a photo catch-and-
release activity, and all par-
ticipants must be accompa-
nied by an adult.

Gov. Charlie Crist has
announced the second free
fishing weekend to help
draw visitors to the beauti-
ful Sunshine State. Both
residents and nonresident
in Florida can fish for salt-
water species around the
state without a license dur-
ing the upcoming weekend
of June 5 and 6. Florida's
popular red snapper season
opened in the Gulf on June
1. All other fishing rules
apply.
"Florida is the fishing
capital of the world," Crist
declared, "and our beaches
are clean, the fish are bit-
ing, and we invite our
friends to enjoy some
Florida hospitality."
Chairman Rodney
Barreto of the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC)
applauded the governor's
decision.
"Gov. Crist's actions to
offer free fishing this week-
end and next will do won-
ders for our business com-
munities that have been
suffering cancellations since
the oil spill started,"
Barreto said. "We aren't
experiencing any oil
impacts here, and the fact
remains that Florida is
open for business."
The FWC will continue


to monitor all of the poten-
tial impacts of the oil spill
on Florida's fish and
wildlife and continue to be
involved with many aspects
of the oil spill response,
Barreto added. In addition,
the FWC has consulted-
with key representatives
from several fishing organi-
zations in Florida who are
very concerned about inac-
curate public perceptions
regarding the condition of


Florida's fisheries and the
state's marine environ-
ment. There has been
strong agreement from
these stakeholders that the
fishing business in Florida
is "as usual" and that fish-
ing remains a safe and
viable recreational and
commercial activity.

MyFWC.com/Fishing to
learn about fishing regula-
tions in Florida.


Red snapper season

has re-opened in Gulf


The recreational harvest
season for red snapper in
Gulf of Mexico waters off
Florida reopened on
Tuesday. The harvest sea-
son is scheduled to remain
open until July 24 this year.
Anglers may take two
red snapper daily from Gulf
waters during the open sea-
son; however, the captain
and crew of for-hire vessels
in the Gulf may not keep
the recreational bag limit.
The minimum-size limit for
recreational red snapper in
the Gulf is 16 inches total
length.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation


Commission is increasing
its efforts to collect and ana-
lyze information on the
number of red snapper,
caught in the Gulf during
the open season. By sur-
veying fishing activity on a
weekly basis, fisheries man-
agers will have the informa-
tion they need to possibly
adjust or extend the Gulf
red snapper sport fishing
season, if it is warranted.
For more information
about red snapper manage-
ment and regulations, go to

Alligator hunters required to


re-submit applications to FWC


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is
working to get things back
on track after learning
about a problem with alli-
gator hunting permit appli-
cations. Active Outdoors,
the company that provides
the FWC's licensing and
permitting system, said a
coding error resulted in the
recording of incorrect har-
vest period choices for
many of the Florida alliga-
tor hunting applications.
The FWC has taken
steps to ensure that Active
Outdoors has fixed the
problem, but because the
company was unable to
recover customers' selected
harvest periods, new appli-
cations will have to be sub-
mitted before a random
drawing can be conducted
and permits issued. The
agency will be accepting
new applications between
June 1 and June 14.
Everyone who previously
submitted an application
will have to resubmit a new
application during the new
application period.
Meanwhile, Active
Outdoors general manager
David Dutch issued the fol-
lowing statement:
"Active Outdoors, ven-
dor for the FWC licensing
system, recently discovered
we had an issue with the
alligator application process


that requires applicants to
resubmit their applications.
We deeply regret this error,
and we understand and sin-
cerely apologize for the
inconvenience caused to
FWC staff and its con-
stituents.
"In addition, Active
Outdoors, in furtherance of
our commitment to FWC
and its constituents, is
waiving all convenience
fees for online Internet pur-
chasers of the licenses
awarded as a result of the
random draw. Florida resi-
dents buying online will
save over $9. Active
Outdoors will forego an
estimated $75,000 in rev-
enue from these waived
convenience fees while cov-
ering all costs of the online
purchase, including pro-
cessing the payment and
printing/mailing the
license."
Erin Rainey, head of the
FWC's Recreational
Licensing Section, said
prospective gator hunters
had submitted 9,681 appli-
cations during the original
application period. The
FWC is contacting all
applicants via e-mail or the
U.S. Postal Service to
inform them of this issue.
The FWC had planned
to post the results of the
random drawing on its web-
site on May 27, but resolv-
ing the problem made that


impossible.
"Customer service is a
high priority in this agency,
and we are disappointed
with the service provided
by the vendor in this
instance," Rainey said.
The start of the alligator
hunting season, Aug. 15,
will not be delayed.

Back to School Tax


Holiday is
Governor Charlie Crist
has signed House Bill 483,
the Back to School Sales
Tax Holiday. This bill des-
ignates a three day sales-
tax holiday from August 13
through 15, 2010, on school
supplies, books, clothing,
and footwear. The tax holi-
day is expected to save
Florida families $26 mil-
lion.
"Our children deserve to
have the resources and
materials they need to be
successful and competitive
in the classroom. I am con-
fident this tax break will
help students, families and
businesses as they prepare
for a new school year," said
Governor Crist. "It is
important that we continue
to alleviate the tax burden
on Floridians, as well as
seek ways to improve the
economic future of out
state."'
During the sales tax hol-
iday, Floridians will not pay
sales tax on books, clothing
and footwear that cost $50
or less, as well as school


reinstated
supplies that cost $10 or
less. In January 2010, the
Governor presented the
Back to School Sales Tax
Holiday to the Legislature
as part of his policy and
budget recommendations
for the 2010-11 Fiscal Year.
"This tax break will
enable Florida families to
buy school supplies and
clothing for the school year
without the additional cost
burden of state and local
taxes," said Sally West,
director of government
affairs for the Florida Retail
Federation. "The tax holi-
day will also provide a
much needed boost to
Florida's economy. We are
thankful to Governor Crist
for his longtime, enthusias-
tic support of this tax
break."

Hurricane season is here...



is your business prepared?


Hurricane season has
officially begun and the
Department of Business
and Professional Regulation
urges businesses, profes-
sionals and consumers
across Florida to create dis-
aster preparedness plans
by visiting Florida
Disaster.org.
"This hurricane season,
I encourage all of our
licensees and Floridians to
develop disaster plans,"
said Interim Secretary
Charlie Liem. "Preparing
now will enable you to bet-
ter protect your family,
your home and your liveli-
hood."
DBPR recommends
businesses take the follow-
ing actions to prepare for
this hurricane season:
V Retrieve all important
business records and store
them in a watertight con-
tainer in a safe place.
V Expect no cell or tele-


phone communications
immediately following a
storm.
V Establish essential
staff for post-storm recov-
ery and have predeter-
mined locations for employ-
ees to meet when condi-
tions permit.
V Prepare a photo or
video inventory of assets
and store it in a safe loca-
tion.
V Ensure that your
insurance policy payment is
up-to-date.
V Maintain detailed
expenses for disaster recov-
ery for possible reimburse-
ment from FEMA.
V Have cash on-hand,
as banking may be unavail-
able for several days.
Florida consumers
should also be aware that
hurricane season can bring
increased unlicensed con-
tracting. Remember to
check your contractor's


license at MyFlorida
License.com and report
unlicensed activity by call-
ing 1-866-532-1440. Here
are some tips to help con-
sumers protect themselves
against unlicensed activity:
V Always ask to see the
State of Florida license.
V Note the license num-
ber and verify that the
license is current and in
good standing. To check a
license, call 850-487-1395
or visit
MyFloridaLicense.com.
V Ask for references
and check each one.
V Do not pay cash and
be cautious of writing
checks made payable to
individuals, especially
when dealing with a com-
pany.
V Get everything in
writing, including a detailed
description of the work to
be completed, a completion
date and the total cost.

Wake Up America series at Gateway

Wake Up America is .a series of messages to be present-
ed at Gateway Baptist Church. The series began
Memorial Day weekend and will continue to the fourth of
July. The course our country is taking is unsustainable.
We must wake up and speak up if we desire to continue to
experience the freedoms and opportunities America has
enjoyed.
In the early days of this country, the churches were a
major rallying point. Many of the framers of the constitu-
tion were ministers. Almost all were strong believers in
God and the Bible. Over time, the rewriting of history
books and the secularization of our society have eroded
this understanding. Ministers have been intimidated by
governmental threats to church finance and the perversion
of the concept of "the separation of church and state". At
Gateway Baptist Church we refuse to delicately dance
around issues. It's time to speak clearly. Messages to be
presented in this series are: Faith of Our Forefathers, The
Bible and Our Constitution, Threats to America, Issues
Resulting in God's Judgement, Our Hope.
Pastor Roger King invites you to join us for these
Sunday Morning messages beginning this Sunday at 11
AM. If you cannot be with us in person, the service can
be heard on WPHK 102.7 FM. Join us as we raise our
voice to "Wake Up America"!

adventures we'll explore during the week of June 7

tions, contact Pastor Dewayne Tolbert at 674-8022.

ENABLE US ALL
Acts 4:29
When I was a teen three
other friends and myself
took a trip to Baxter State
Park Maine. One evening
we walked to a lake where
moose were known to come
to feed and drink. As we
approached we saw a big
moose feeding in the water.
As we moved along the
shore to get a better van-
tage point, we scared up a
baby and mom and they
came toward us throwing
water in all directions.
We started running,
throwing dirt in every
direction. Choosing a tree,
we climbed to the top. We
could hear that moose
trampling through the
woods,'so we stayed put in
fear till almost dark. Then
with a one, two, three we
slid down the tree, hit the
ground running and ran all
the way back to camp as if
we had jet packs strapped
to our backs.
As Christians, we should
never be gripped with or
paralyzed by fear.
Remember, Jesus can take
care of all the moose in our
lives that chase us, no mat-
ter ,how big their rack is
because his Spirit fills us
with enabling power
always! All we have to do
is keep on walking by faith.
As Psalm 119:28 says,

The County Record is paying tribute to the men and women who have served our great
country in the military. If you or someone you know is a veteran living in Calhoun County
(or a veteran from the community who has passed away), please email the photo and
details to news@thecountyrecord.net or drop it off at our office on Central Avenue West next
to Badcock & More. We are also receiving veteran photos from the Supervisor of Elections
Office that are posted on their Facebook page.


Veterans will find it eas-
ier and faster to apply for
their health care benefits
now that the Department
of Veterans Affairs has
updated its online Form 10-
10EZ, "Application for
Health Benefits."
"VA is committed to
tapping into the best that
technology has to offer to
ensure Veterans receive the
benefits they have earned,"
said Secretary of Veterans
Affairs Eric K. Shinseki.
"We continue to look for
new ways to improve
access to care and bene-
fits."
This revised online
application provides
enhanced navigation fea-
tures that make it easier
and faster for Veterans to
apply for their health care
benefits. This new version
also allows Veterans to save
a copy of the completed
form for their personal
records.
The most significant
enhancement allows
Veterans to save their
application to their local
desktop and return to the


application at any time
without having to start
over. Previously, Veterans
had to complete the form in
a single session.
This updated online
form, along with the revised
VA Form 10-10EZ, reduces
the collection of informa-
tion from Veterans by elim-
inating some questions.
In addition, there are
minor changes to simplify
the wording of questions
and provide clarity in the
instructions. Further


enhancements to the online
application are expected to
be delivered in increments
throughout 2010.
Veterans may complete
or download the 10-10EZ
form at the VA health eligi-
bility website at
https://www. 1010ez.med.v
a.gov/sec/vha/101 0ez.
Veterans may also contact
VA at 1 (877) 222-8387

The County Record, JUNE 2, 2010, Page 14


BHS Principal Duane Barber continued-


1. Lied to administra-
tors when he signed out of
school.
2. Returned to school at
1 p.m. with the smell of
alcohol on their breath,
then failed two breathalyz-
er tests.
3. A weapon (BB pistol)
was discovered during a
search of student's vehicle.
4. Tobacco was also
found during the vehicle
search.
The student was given
10 day OSS and referred to
the CARE program (Asst.
Superintendent Vicki
Davis was advised and
agreed to this punishment).
At some point after
being placed in CARE pro-
gram, the student reported-
ly had a discipline problem.
According to Supt.
McClellan, because the
student had issues with the
CARE teacher, the student
was allowed to do their
work on computer (Virtual
School) in a special desig-
nated area.
Barber says, according
to policy, the student
should not have been
allowed to participate in
graduation (the student's


diploma would still be
mailed to them and they
simply wouldn't march at
the ceremony). The School
Board was asked to vote on
whether or not to allow this
student to march at gradu-
ation. The vote was 2-1 in
favor (Tim Smith opposed,
Danny Ryals in favor, Ken
Speights in favor. Danny
Hassig was absent. Kelly
King, as Chairwoman, did
not have to vote since there
wasn't a tie).

Case #2
Three basketball play-
ers showed up for a game
and were suspected of
being under the influence
of alcohol. One of the three
confessed and gave details
about what they did before
the game. The other two
stuck to their story and
denied drinking. Other
players on the team stated
their three teammates had
been drinking. All three
players were subsequently
kicked off the team by
Barber and given three
days OSS.
After much criticism,
the punishment was over-
turned and all three play-


ers were put back on the
team. Supt. McClellan
says the reason the punish-
ment was overturned is
because the coaches
weren't absolutely positive
the boys had been drinking.
Despite the confession of
one of the players, all three
had their punishment over-
turned.

Case #3
A drug dog alerted on a
student's vehicle, marijua-
na was discovered and the
student was given 10 days
OSS and referred to CARE
for 180 days. According to
Supt. McClellan, only a
"fingernail size" amount of
pot was found and the
school district's attorney
didn't think the case would
hold up in court. Even
though any amount of
drugs on campus is consid-
ered a violation of the zero
tolerance policy, the stu-
dent's punishment was
overturned after only 15
days in CARE.
On a side note, five stu-
dents came to school high
on pot, four admitted to it,
the drug dog alerted on two
of their vehicles and small,


trace amounts of marijuana
seeds and residue were
found. All five were given
the same punishment as
the student described
above, the amount of pot
found was small just like in
the other case, however,
there has been no action to
have their punishments
overturned.

Case #4
A student was sent to
CARE for numerous acts of
defiance/disrespect to
school staff and administra-
tors. According to school
board policy, the student
should not be allowed to
march at graduation.
However, after an adult
(not a parent or guardian of
the student) expressed
being unclear about the
policy, the student was
given permission to partici-
pate in graduation.

Case #5
In order for students in
neighboring counties to
attend a Calhoun County
school, they must meet cer-
tain requirements including
good FCAT scores since
that affects the school


grade. When two students
living out of the county who
attended BHS failed to
meet district policy, they
were notified over the sum-
mer and directed to enroll
in their own district. When
they showed up for the first
day of school at BHS, they
were told they were not
enrolled. However, after a
parent went to the School
Board office and com-
plained, Barber was direct-
ed to enroll them against
policy.
"This job can be very
stressful at times," says
Barber. "Even more so,
when you're following the
guidelines set forth by the
School Board and are not
supported. I'm frustrated
with taking a stand for
what is right and having my
decisions constantly over-
turned. I have no hidden
agendas. I treat all the stu-
dents fairly and within the
guidelines set by the
board."
Barber says the lack of
respect for authority is a
problem at BHS. Recently,
a group of 20 seniors were
being reprimanded by
Assistant Principal Sue


Price after walking off cam-
pus without permission.
One student reportedly
remarked, "If that lady
tries to punish us, we will
call Mr. McClellan and get
her fired just like we did
Mr. Barber."
So, what's the problem
with Barber? Did
McClellan think he was too
strict?
"I'm not against punish-
ment," says McClellan. "I
feel like you should carry
policy out, but I still feel
like there's sometimes you
have to use discretion. I'm
a little bit of a student
advocate to give them a
break or the benefit of the
doubt, but not to the point
students are running the
school."
School board members
have been contacted with
questions on each of the
cases outlined in Barber's
letter. Check out next
week's edition for their
responses.
