Liberty Co. drug sweep




lands six behind bars


BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
The Liberty County
Sheriff's Office netted six
arrests last week in a drug
sweep.
Arrested were Nicholas
Allen Plass, 18, charged
with sale and possession of
less than 20 grams of mar-
ijuana with intent to sell,
Julie Danielle Smith, 40,
and Gregory Ellis Pitts,
both charged with lease or
rent for the purpose of
trafficking in a controlled
substance; Michael
Lamar "Little Mike"
Jones, 25, Michael Alan
Brown, 28, and Ryan Lee
Eddleman, all charged
with sale and possession of
less than 20 grams of mar-
ijuana with intent to sell
within 1000 feet of a place
of worship.
According to the


Liberty County Sheriff's
Office, confidential
informants (CI) were used
to arrange purchase of
marijuana.
In the first case, the CI
arranged to meet Plass
May 25 at his home on
NE K and K Road in
Hosford. The CI gave
Plass $40 for a bag of mar-
ijuana, then asked if he
would have anymore in a
few days. Smith allegedly
spoke up and remarked,
"It ain't gonna last, I'll go
ahead and tell ya it's pret-
ty much already sold,
that's what your dad
says." Investigators noted
that the "dad" Smith
referred to was Pitts.
In the second case later
that evening, a CI met
Eddleman at a predeter-
mined location, then
entered his vehicle.

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
Last week, The County
Record presented the first
in a two-part series about
Blountstown High School
Principal Duane Barber
being terminated by
Superintendent Tommy
McClellan. Barber shared
| letter he sent to
McClellan describing sev-
eral situations in which he
followed school board policy
on code of conduct and dis-
cipline, but had his deci-
sions overturned. Examples
included drugs being found
in a student's vehicle,
instances where students
repeatedly violated rules,
but were allowed to march
at graduation, and out-of-
county students with low
FCAT scores being allowed
to re-enroll at BHS, thus
pulling the school's grade
down. -
This week, we asked
school board members to
respond since they were, in
some cases, presented with
these situations and had to
cast deciding votes on
whether to follow the poli-
cies they put in place. Twvo
of the five board members
chose to respond -
Chairwoman Kelly King
(district 2) and district 5
" representative Danny
Hassig. Those who did not
respond are Danny Ryals
(district 1), Tim Smith (dis-
trict 3), and Ken Speights
(district 4).
"The Calhoun County
School District's student
code of conduct states that
students have a right to due
process, which allows the
student to appeal a decision
of the principal to a higher
authority," says King. "In
each of the instances you
mention, due process was
exercised and either the
superintendent ruled on the
incident or, in a couple of
instances, the grievance
was brought to the school
board. It is the responsibili-

The daughter of Merle

in town probably recall see-
ing Anita working at
Wakulla Bank. What you
may not know is she joined

age of 40 to give back to our
country.
The 144th joined with
the 1218th from the East
Coast when they headed to
Iraq last summer. Although
the plan was for Anita to be
a driver, she was placed in
charge of logistics at Al
Asad Air Base. "She has to
otdef the fuel and make
sure soldiers are okay com-
ing in and going out," says
her dad.

Red Hats to

for luncheon
The Red Hat Society will

at noon at Main Street
Station in Blountstown. All
members are urged to
attend.


What was it that Julie
Andrews sang in The
Sound of Music? When the
dog bites, and the bee
stings, when I'm feeling so
sad. I simply remember my
favorite things, and I don't
feel so bad.
I had been suffering a bit
of writers block, or maybe
it was just not enough time
to devote to a project, trust
me, I had a busy May. But
I have had this idea perco-
lating in the back of my
mind about favorite things,
things now, not people, try-
ing to come up with what is
my absolute favorite thing.
I got to thinking about
the thought process that
makes a thing become a
favorite thing. Observe chil-
dren, part of their social
and mental development
revolves around posses-
sions; at first, they will let
you have just about any-
thing if you just lay out your
hand, except a bottle, of
course. Then they develop
a sense of mine, not yours.
This will morph into I like
mine, but I like yours, too.
Then the fight starts. Soon,
the lucky ones learn the
concept of sharing, and
respect of what is not ours,
and I suppose sometime
after that, the idea that we
like some things better than
others, thus, a favorite.
Until I started this proj-
ect, did not know there
could be so many different
kinds of favorite things, and
narrowing it down to just
one seemed impossible, but
I did it, and I will tell you
about it, last. As already
stated, we all had a favorite
toy as a kid, some of us still
have them, but that
changed as we got older.
(And it still does)
We can have a favorite
book, and will re-read it
often or just put it on a shelf
to look at and smile. I have
several bird feeders, but
oie is definitely my
favorite, hand made by a
wonderful man, Rob
Griffin, or Mr. Rob as most
called him. Many an enjoy-
able hour has been spent
watching the birds share
that bird feeder. We can
have a favorite tool, be it
kitchen, carpentry,
mechanic or garden; it's
that one thing that never
lets you down, the go to
tool, the one you keep clean
and shinny. Art work and
photographs can be favorite
things, I have a few favorite
photos and one piece of art,
I don't own it, and I only
have a picture. It is a small
sculptor by Hugo Robus
called despair, and it packs
a big punch for such a small
work, even the photos of it

Reader shares opposing view on recent


"separation of church and state" letter


To the Editor:
After reading the letter
in the May 26th issue,
"History Behind
Separation of Church and
State," I respectfully dis-
agree with Mr. Davis's
point of view. As I present
an opposing position, I will
list my sources. Please feel
free to verify the evidence I
put forth to support my
arguments.
One of Mr. Davis's first
arguments was that the
Pilgrims left Europe
because they were against
"the church having an
influence in their govern-
ment." However, this
statement is incorrect. It is
true that the High Church
of Europe had used its
political authority to perse-
cute the Low Church,
which included Pilgrims
(http://www.wallbuilders.co
m/libissuesarticles.asp?id=
4652). Consequently, the
Pilgrims were opposed to
the government's demand
that all citizens must attend
the Church set forth by the
law, but they were never
"determined to have sepa-
ration of the church and
their government" as Mr.
Davis asserted. In 1623,


the Pilgrims faced a severe
drought. "Knowing that
without a change in the
weather there would be no
harvest and the winter
would be filled with death
and starvation, Governor
Bradford called the
Pilgrims to a time of prayer
and fasting to seek God's
direct intervention"
(http://www.wallbuilders.co
m/libissuesarticles.asp?id =
17984). This act of the
Pilgrims' government
shows an obvious lack of
concern for the separation
of Church and state.
The second argument
put forth last week was that
the Founding Fathers sup-
ported the separation of
Church and state. In order
to dispute this claim, it is
necessary that you know
where the idea originated.
When President Thomas
Jefferson was elected into
office, the Danbury
Baptists were elated. They
wrote a letter to the presi-
dent, praising him, but also
issuing a.concern that they
held. The letter stated that
the Danbury Baptists were
in support of religious liber-
ty, but that the wording of


the First Amendment
might one day be interpret-
ed as meaning that religious
freedom was a gift of the
government and not of
God. They were concerned
that the government might
eventually regulate this
freedom of religious expres-
sion. In answer, Jefferson
agreed by saying,
"...Religion is a matter
which lies solely between
man and his God; that he
owes account to none other
for his faith or his worship;
that the legislature should
'make no law respecting an
establishment of religion or
prohibiting the free exer-
cise thereof,' thus building
a wall of separation
between Church and
State" (http://www.wall-
builders.com/LIBissuesArti
cles.asp?id= 123).
Basically, this phrase was
pulled from a personal let-
ter between the president
and a Baptist Association.
In reality, President
Jefferson believed that the
exercise of religion should
not be limited by govern-
ment. Unfortunately, his
letter was misconstrued to
mean that government and


religion should never mix.
A careful examination of
Jefferson and many of the
other Founding Fathers
indicates that -their com-
ments and beliefs have
been misinterpreted.
President Jefferson also
said, "[N]o power over the
freedom of religion... [is]
delegated to the United
States by the Constitution"
(http://www.wallbuilders.
com/LIBissuesArticles.asp
?id=123). While Jefferson
was a governor, he was
quoted in 1779 as saying,
"[I] appoint...a day of pub-
lic Thanksgiving to
Almighty God...to [ask]
Him that He
would...spread the light of
Christian knowledge
through the remotest cor-
ners of the earth;...and that
He would establish these
United States upon the
basis of religion and virtue"
(http://www.wallbuilders.co
m/libissuesarticles.asp?id=
17984).
George Washington, too,
is said to have supported
the separation of Church
and state. Mr. Davis attrib-

flops, I have suffered many
an ant bite for refusing to
put on shoes while putter-
ing in the yard, but I am
stubborn like that.
We can have favorite-
knick-knacks, or just stuff
that refuses to be catego-
rized. (I think we have
already establish that I am
just a bit....Off...however) I
have a small plastic head
on the dash of my car. His
name is Butch. He is wear-
ing a helmet and has a
smirk on his face. He has a
hole through his head, like
he may of supposed to be
on a pencil? I put a drywall
Sscrew in the dash to keep


him upright because once,
on a sharp turn, poor ole
Butch rolled all the way
down the dash and out the
open window. I thought I
would never find him. I
swear that smirk got bigger
after that. I often talk
things over with Butch,
he's a good listener.

The list goes on and on.
Don't even get me started
on foods! It can be a smell,
a movie, tree, bush, flower,
time of day, etc.
I did come to a conclu-
sion of just what was my
favorite thing (drum roll
please): Our twelve inch


cast iron skillet. (How
many brethren just
went..."ahhhhh"?) This
possession never fails me,
but believe me, I have
failed it. Give it some heat,
and it does not care where
from, it can be the stove,
oven, propane burner or
camp fire, and it will turn
simple ingredients into
magic. Just picture in your
mind and see if you can
smell the onions frying, or
squash, or eggs, bacon,
shrimp, chicken, steak,
cornbread, mushrooms and
garlic, hands down, my
favorite thing, the thing
that I would want to be


buried with, except, I
would rather share it by
passing it on down, and
give it new life as someone
else's favorite thing. I came
up with the skillet to be my
favorite thing because it
satisfies all my senses.
I invite you to visit The
County Record web site,
http://www.thecounty
record.net and up top click
on "news" then "question
of the week", and share a
story about your favorite
thing, and maybe see what
others enjoy most. Don't be
shy, and remember the

of your favorite thing.

Former Chipola player


leads MLB in homeruns


BY JOC CALLOWAY
www.chlpolaathletlcs.com

In front of the largest
crown in Toronto since
opening day of the season,
30,089 fans watched as for-
mer Chipola Indian, Jose
Bautista hit two towering
home runs to help the
Toronto Blue Jays defeat
the New Yankees 6-1 on
Friday night.
The loss snapped a five-
game winning streak by the
Yankees and the two
homers increased
Bautista's major league-
leading total to 18.
"This is uncharted
water for me, but it feels
good," said Bautista, who
had a previous career high
of 16 home runs in a single
season.
The former Chipola
great led off the second
inning with a home run ball
that went off the facing of
the third deck in left field.
Later in the fourth inning,
Bautista found almost the
same area for a two-run
shot. Bautista would finish
the night with a leadoff
double in the eighth to go 3
for 3 with 3 RBIs on the
night.
Bautista was a member
on Chipola Baseball squad

Oyster harvesting
has been extended
to six days a week
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson and Chairman
Rodney Barreto of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) announced Friday
that the summer oyster har-
vesting areas in the
Apalachicola Bay System
will now include harvest on
Saturday, giving fishermen
six days of harvesting per
week.
The summer oyster
areas are normally closed
for harvest on Fridays and
Saturday in June, July and
August, and this is the first
time that the two agencies,
which jointly manage oyster
resources in Florida, have
implemented this change.
The decision to open
Apalachicola Bay to oyster
harvesting on Saturdays
comes a day after Bronson
sent a letter to the FWC
seeking the change and in
response to requests by rep-
resentatives of the oyster
industry for an increase in
harvesting days.

BHS Issues cont'd-


ty of the superintendent
and school board to hear
these grievances and care-
fully consider all facts from
both parties, as well as legal
counsel, in their ruling.
This board makes every
effort to enforce the code of
conduct, however, there has
been and will continue to be
instances where there are
exceptions to the discipli-
nary action. These excep-
tions have been exercised
at all levels, including that
of school principal. As these
situations arise during the
school year, the board and
district staff revise the code
of conduct for the next year
so school administrators
maintain credibility when
enforcing the disciplinary
procedures. It is impossible
to plan for every situation
when creating this docu-
ment, but I feel our staff
does a great job of adminis-
tering the code of conduct
.and exercising discretion
when it is needed. When
:dealing with children, there
will always be many vari-
ables and shades of gray
and when we fail to recog-
nize that, we provide a
great injustice to our stu-
dents by not evaluating the
situation and doing what is
in the best interest of our
children. The school board
will continue to ensure a
cooperative relationship
exists between students,
parents, and educators in
order to provide the best
educational experience for
our district."
Hassig says the rules are
in place for a reason.
"We've got to follow our
policies," he remarks. "We
need to empower our prin-
cipals and we need to stand
by them unless they do
something immoral, illegal,
or unethical. But you can't


usurp their authority, other-
wise you lose all leadership.
You've got to follow policy
to be fair to every student.
There are consequences for
actions and a lot of time
they're not pleasant. But if
they are part of your policy,
you need to follow them
and support your principal.
It doesn't matter if it's
Duane Barber it's every
principal we have. [Mr.
Barber] followed policy and
I think he did a good job.
He had accountability. He
expected personal account-
ability. When you're truly
leading, 90 percent of the
time you're not the most
popular person. But you
are doing what's best for
the children, the school and
the county and molding the
students to become produc-
tive and personally
accountable citizens."
As for not asking Barber
back, Superintendent
McClellan says, "I am not
Donald Trump and I take
no pleasure in dismissing
anyone from their job. I
can, however, dismiss any
principal or county school
administrator just by saying
I am not recommending
you back for that position.
The principal can do the
same with teachers, coach-
es, and non-instructional
personnel if they aren't on
professional contract sta-
tus."
McClellan went on to
say Barber was given a
"year's reprieve" after
BHS received a "D" grade.
He adds he wishes Barber
well and hopes his replace-
ment will be well received
and "accept their new chal-
lenge."

"Wake Up America"
series at Gateway
Wake Up America is a
series of messages to be
presented 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 expe-
rience 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
constitution 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 intim-
idated 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 per-
son, the service can be
heard on WPHK 102.7
FM. Join us as we raise
our voice to "Wake Up
America"!

Ihe County Record, JUNE 9, 2010, Page 11


Letter to the Editor cont'd


uted the following quote
froll the Treaty of ITipoli to
President Washington:
"The Government of the
United States of America is
not in any sense founded on
the Christian Religion."
However, George
Washington had no part in
this article. In fact, he had
been out of office for
months before the treaty
ever arrived
(http://www.wallbuilders.co
m/libissuesarticles.asp?id =
125). The treaty was actu-
ally ratified under
President Adams, who said,
"The general principles on
which the fathers achieved
independence were.... The
general principles of
Christianity ... "
(http://www.wallbuilders.co
m/libissuesarticles.asp?id =
125) and, "[I]t is religion
and morality alone which
can establish the principles
upon which freedom can
securely stand. The only
foundation of a free consti-
tution is pure virtue..."
(http://www.wallbuilders.co
m/LIBissuesArticles.asp?id
=63). In the first federal
Thanksgiving proclama-
tion, President Washington
said, "Whereas it is the
duty of all nations to
acknowledge the provi-
dence of Almighty God, to
obey His will, to be grateful
for His benefits, and
humbly to implore His pro-
tection and favor.... Now,
therefore, I do appoint
Thursday, the 26th day of
November 1789... that we
may all unite to render
unto Him our sincere and
humble thanks for His kind
care and protection"
(http://www.wallbuilders
.com/libissuesarticles.asp?i
d= 17984).
I believe that the argu-
ment that Benjamin
Franklin wanted the sepa-
ration of Church and state
was incorrect. He stated
that, "When a religion is
good, I conceive that it will
support itself; and when it
does not support itself, and
God does not take care to
support it so that its profes-
sors are obliged to call for
help of the civil power, 'tis a
sign, I apprehend, of it
being a bad one."
However, at the Federal
Convention of 1787,
Franklin said, "I have
lived, Sir, a long time, and
the longer I live, the more
convincing proofs I see of
this truth, that God governs
in the affairs of men. And if
a'sparrow cannot fall to the
ground without His notice,
is it probable that an
empire can rise without his
aid? We have been
assured, Sir, in the Sacred
Writings, that 'except the
Lord build the House, they
labor in vain that build it.'
I;firmly believe this; and I
also believe that without
His concurring aid we shall
succeed in this political
building no better, than the
Builders of Babel: We shall
be divided by our partial
local interests; our projects
will be confounded, and we
ourselves shall become a
reproach and bye word
down to future ages. And
what is worse, mankind
may hereafter from this
unfortunate instance,


despair of establishing gov-
ornments by human wis-
dom and leave it to chance,
war and conquest. I there-
fore beg leave to move that
henceforth prayers implor-
ing the assistance of
Heaven, and its blessings
on our deliberations be held
in this Assembly every

to business, and that one or

city be requested to offici-

=63). Clearly, Franklin
was opposed to the need of
a religion to turn to the gov-
ernment for support, but he
felt an overwhelming need
for the government to turn
to God for.His guidance.
Henry Clay stated that
"All religions united with
government are inimical of
liberty. All separated from
government are compatible
with liberty," as Mr. Davis
stated last week. My inter-
pretation of this comment is
that the government should
never merge with a reli-
gion, as the governments of
Europe had done. It was
common knowledge, then,
that when the government
requires that its people
worship in a particular way,
there is no freedom of reli-
gion. I believe that Henry
Clay supported the separa-
tion of Church and state
that keeps government
from restricting religious
freedom.
When America was
founded, our country oper-
ated under the laws set
forth in the Bible. George
Washington said in his
Farewell Address that,
"...Reason and experience
both forbid us to expect
that national morality can
prevail in exclusion of reli-
gious principle"
(http://wallbuilders.com/LI
BissuesArticles.asp?id=62)
. Although it is not com-
monly known, America's
first schools taught their
curriculum using direct ref-
erences to the Bible. The
New England Primer,
which was the first textbook
ever printed in America,
was used in many schools
during the Founding-Era to
teach reading and Bible les-
sons (http://shop.wall-

John Jay, America's first
Chief Justice of the United
States Supreme Court,
said, "Providence has given
to our people the choice of
their rulers, and it is the
duty as well as the privi-
lege and interest of our
Christian nation, to select
and prefer Christians for
their rulers"

I urge you to become
informed on the true
American history regarding
the separation of Church
and state, and for a more

SThe third case occurred
on May 27 when the CI
arranged to meet Jones on
i4E Lake Mystic Church
1oad. When he arrived,
Jones reportedly
approached his vehicle and
tle CI handed him cash in
exchange for two bags of
marijuana.
The final case occurred
the next day when the CI
met Brown at his home on


NW Rock Bluff Road inside
Duggar's Trailer Park.
According to the CI, Brown
retrieved marijuana from a
Crown Royal bag and sold
it to him for $20.
Investigators noted Brown
is currently on state proba-
tion.
Warrants were obtained
and all those charged were
taken into custody on June
3. All six remained in the
Liberty County Jail at press
time.

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

Office that are posted on their Facebook page.


Greater friend has no
man than this, that he lay
down his life for his friends.
John 15:13
Those words are certain-
ly fitting for Jerry Sellers, a
member of Altha High
School's Class of 1952.
Born and raised in
Altha, Sellers continued his
education at Florida State
University, earned his
degree in 1956, joined the
Air Force then started a
family. He and his wife had
three little ones when he
headed off to Vietnam in
1967 to serve our country.
Little did they know he
would never come home.
On Christmas Day in
1967, Jerry was killed in
action. He was later hon-
ored with the second high-
est award for valor the Air
Force Cross.
Sellers, a major in the
U.S. Air Force, was pre-
sented this award for
extraordinary heroism in
military operations against
an opposing armed force as


a Forward Air Controller
near Con Thien, Republic
of Vietnam.
Sources report Major
Sellers was flying a night
reconnaissance mission
when he received a call for
assistance from the United
States ground patrol. This
patrol had been attacked
by a superior hostile force
and was in imminent dan-
ger of being overrun.
Weather and terrain condi-
tions made target acquisi-
tion virtually impossible.


Major Sellers elected to
turn on his lights to locate
the target and his aircraft
was immediately bracketed -'
by anti-aircraft fire. He
then attempted to direct an
AC-47 gunship to the area
from which fire had been
received, but the pilot could
not see the target. Without
hesitation and with com-
plete disregard for his own
safety, Major Sellers illumi-
nated the target with his
landing lights and directed
accurate fire into the hostile
positions.
His aircraft was struck
by hostile fire and crashed.
By deliberately exposing
himself to the hostile fire,
Major Sellers enabled the
patrol to be withdrawn,
ultimately saving their lives
'by the sacrifice of his own.'
Through his extraordinary
heroism, superb airman-,
ship, and aggressiveness in
the face of hostile forces,
Major Sellers reflected the
highest credit upon himself :
and the U.S. Air Force.
