Mural Masterpiece

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Ediftor
Motorists traveling through downtown Blountstown
have been doing a double take over the past week. Local
artist Jeff Vickery has put his paint and imagination on the 4
side of the Snowden Surveying building on North Pear
Street and created a work of art that is garnering loads of
attention. For Vickery, creating murals has been something
he's dreamed about for many years.
"I started learning to airbrush back in 1983, then N
attended Haney Vo. Tech in Panama City and graduated
from their Commercial Art program," says Vickery. "I air-
brushed t-shirts on the beach for a few years, then worked
in various art related jobs such as painting billboards for a
sign company in Marianna, as an artist for a screen print-
ing company, I owned my own screen printing company,: -:
and I have been designing shirts and other art for the
schools for the last few years. I've always wanted to do big
art. Working for the billboard company gave me the desire -
to paint large scale stuff. After seeing the murals in Dothan
a few years ago I began thinking of ways to do something 1
like that in Blountstown."
When his wife, Marti, was Chamber Director, a few .:
years back, she also worked with Blountstown Main Street
and the idea of painting murals on the downtown buildings .Artl s Jeff
got tossed around. That's when Jeff began coming up with V[elery '
design ideas. After doing a few at local schools, he decided paints a
to get serious about it.muraon
"I just rode around town looking at the buildings to see Snwden
which ones would make good locations for murals and Sn.wden
Frank Snowden's building looked like a great location," he Surveying
remarks. "It wasn't too big and it could be seen from Hwy. building on.

CRIME


Marianna man accused of raping


teenage girl in Liberty County


BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
A Marianna man is behind bars in Liberty County,
accused of raping a teenage girl.
Zachary Ray "Red" McCormick, 19, has been
charged with sexual battery on a juvenile 12 years of
age or older in the case.
According to the Liberty County Sheriff's Office, the
girl was at a surprise birthday party for a friend in
Hosford back in February when she met McCormick.
The two had reportedly been "hanging out" before the
party started. At one point during the celebration, the
girl said she and McCormick went outside with another
couple. As she went to get a flavored water drink from
her car, she alleged McCormick pirined her against the
vehicle and tried to kiss her. The girl told authorities she
asked him to stop and pushed him away. She said after
the other couple went inside, McCormick demanded
she get in his truck and they went for a drive along Cody
Creek Trail. The girl reported McCormick stopped in
the middle of the road, told her she was pretty, then
attempted to kiss her again. She reportedly told him
"no" and pushed him away. The girl went on to allege
that McCormick raped her then stated, "I'm so sorry, I
didn't mean to hurt you," then got back in the truck and
drove back to the party.

M .- 2 '- '_ .. ... : ". .-; .*i


Once back at the party, the girl went inside the bath-
room crying. The mother hosting the party noticed the
girl was visibly upset and called the Sheriff's Office. The
girl told her that "something happened," but left
abrubtly when she realized the woman was calling
authorities. The woman said the girl had admitted to
her daughter what had happened with McCormick, but
was afraid her father would find out. However, the girl
went to a guidance counselor at her high school two days
later and disclosed that she had been raped. Authorities
were able to collect DNA evidence from her clothing.
McCormick was interviewed by Sgt. Brian Bateman
and initially stated "she tried to mess with me" and that
he told her, "I'm in school and I don't want to get into
trouble." He later changed his story, but never admitted
to having sex with the girl. The following week, his
father contacted authorities and expressed interest in
his son giving another statement, explaining his son was
scared. A subsequent interview was never set up. After
DNA belonging to a male turned up on the girl's cloth-
ing, McCormick was asked to give a sample. He refused
to come in voluntarily and a warrant was obtained to
collect a buccal swab. The DNA on the girl's clothing
matched McCormick.
He was booked into the Liberty County Jail last
week.

Viewing Kay Weed's
spectacular yard is like
knowing what heaven must
look like. No small wonder
that this palette of color and
design has once again won
Yard of the Month from
Torreya Garden Club.
Scads of green grass,
native plants, hedges and
trees balance out the many
flowered areas. Crimson
Amaryllis, white blooms,
fabulous purple Iris,
Agapanthus, Lily of the
Nile, to name only a few


blooms are in abundance.
Especially dramatic at this
time of year is the Brazilian
Plume flower, Justicia, or
Jacobinia, a more common
name. Rows of feathery
pink blooms dot the front
walkway and probably will
last throughout the sum-
mer.

Active, knowledgeable,
and always keeping the
pulse of her town, Kay has
been the weather recorder
of our area with Ch. 13,


seeker of key speakers for
Young at Heart, the month-
ly potluck gathering at the
Baptist Church recreation
center. Prison ministry has
been on the agenda, as well
as originating creative and

Kay is a one-of-a-kind
sort of lady. Torreya

To the Editor:
You have heard the old
saying don't judge or say
anything until you have
walked in their shoes. This
might even be hard for
some to do because this is a
female full-blooded AKC
Border Collie.
She doesn't bother any-
body. Even though we have
a big yard, when outside
she stays chained up to pre-
vent her from getting hurt
or wandering off from
home. We bring her inside
every night. So she is like
one of the family.
What I am trying to say
is that a male dog that
belongs to the neighbor
came in our yard and got
her pregnant. If that was a
man that came inside of a


Cooper's

daughter


house on a woman and
done that it would be called
rape, but what is it called
when it happens to a dog?
Who's to say she didn't
want it because she was
chained up and could not
get away?
Now I am stuck with
four puppies that I didn't
want my dog to have or for
me to have to find homes
for. The male dog's owner
does not have to worry
about buying the food, gett-
ting the shots, supplying
the water or finding good
homes for the little puppies.
It has become a problem
for my family and I because
the dog didn't just simply
come and get her pregnant
then leave. It keeps coming
back, along with several


other dogs, eating all the
food that I put out for my
dog.
It is a shame that the
law will not do something
about all these dogs that
just roam the streets aggra-
vating everyone that
resides in the neighbor-
hood. I have even had
some of them try to bite me
in my own yard when I
walk outside. If you don't
want dogs and are not going
to tend to them, you should
not have them. You should
give them away to someone
that will.
All I am asking is to
keep your dogs at home so
mine can not get pregnant
again. Just think about it. Is
that too much to ask?

The celebration in

Hotline for latest info on


Fla. seafood availability


Seafood lovers who are
confused about the avail-
ability of Florida seafood
products due to the Gulf oil
spill can now get' daily
updates about the ongoing
commercial harvest. The
Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services has implemented
a new toll-free hotline at 1-
800-357-4273 to provide
consumers with current
information about the sta-
tus of Florida's open and
closed fishing harvest areas,
the availability of seafood
varieties, and' general pric-
ing information.
"Because of the exten-
sive news media coverage
of the Gulf situation, many
consumers are confused
about whether Florida
seafood is being harvested
and. if it is available in
stores and restaurants,"
Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson said. "We want
consumers to know that


Florida's commercial fisher-
men continue to harvest
wholesome seafood prod-
ucts from the waters that
are unaffected by the oil
spill. Florida seafood is safe
and plentiful."
Bronson said the tele-
phone hotline .will be
updated daily with informa-
tion about the Gulf situa-
tion. He also reminded
consumers that, in addition
to' the Gulf waters off
Florida's west coast,
Florida's fishermen also
harvest numerous seafood
varieties from the Atlantic
waters off the east coast.
"The Florida peninsula
has more than 1,300 miles
of coastline, and our com-
mercial fishermen continue
to work hard to bring in
their catch for the enjoy-
ment of consumers,"
Bronson said. "The com-
mercial fishing industry is
important to our state, and
we want consumers to
know that they can buy


Florida seafood with confi-
dence."
The information that is
available by calling the hot-
line will also be posted
online at the http://www.FL
Seafood.comrn where con-
sumers can also find links
to other pertinent web sites
including the Florida
Department of
Environmental Protection.
Webcams placed at various
coastal locations and in
retail establishments will be
added to the web site later.
"If and when the quality
of Florida seafood is
impacted by the spill, we
will take immediate action
to close the waters to com-
mercial seafood harvest-
ing," Bronson said. "Our
commercial fishermen take
great pride in the quality
reputation Florida seafood
products have earned, and
we would never put any
product on the market that
.would tarnish this hard-
earned reputation."

East meets West in Big Bend


All Star game held Saturday


The Eastern Division
All-Stars of the Big Bend
Baseball League of Florida
evened the score by claim-
ing the win over the
Western Division All-Stars
by a score of 10-2 at
Chipola Baseball field
Saturday in Marianna, FL.
The Western Division All-
Stars took the win over the
East last year, but the big
bats and solid pitching by
the Eastern All-Stars
proved too much for the
West this year.
Leading in the hitting
department for the Eastern
All-Stars were Richie
Smith (Liberty), Travis
Anderson (Liberty), and
Ben Faurot (Calhoun), wlno


cleared the bases in the
third inning with a grand
slam home run that set the
tone for the scoring in the
remainder of the game for
the East. These three
players were awarded co-
MVP for the Eastern All-
Stars.
The pitching for the
East was solid as Austin
Horton (Gulf), Chad Bailey
(Calhoun), and Austin
Riano (Red Birds), in relief,
held the West in check
throughout the game.
Riano threw the last five
innings in relief giving up
only one run.
Congratulations to the All-
Stars on both sides of the
diamond for a great per-


formance in the second
annual Big Bend Baseball
All-Star game.
Eric Ramsey (Gulf)
received the award for the
oldest All-Star on the field
while Arthur Faurot.(father
of Ben Faurot) claimed the
prize for the oldest father of
an All-Star on the field.
Congratulations!
Thanks to Chipola
College President Gene
Prough, Athletic Director
Dale O'Daniel, and
Baseball Coach Jeff
Johnson and his staff for
allowing the use of their
baseball facilities. Thanks
a million from the Big Bend
Baseball League of
Florida!

USDA offering assistance


to orchardists, tree growers


Orchardists and nursery
tree growers can begin
applying for benefits under
the Tree Assistance
Program announced USDA
Farm Service Agency State
Executive Director Tim
Manning.
"This program helps our
orchardists and nursery
free growers replant and
get back on their feet after
natural disasters," said
Manning.
The Tree Assistance
Program (TAP) provides
help to orchardists and
nursery tree growers who
produce trees, bushes and
vines for commercial pur-
poses, to replant or rehabil-
itate trees, bushes and
vines damaged or.
destroyed by natural disas-
ters. The 2008 Farm Bill
expanded eligibility to
include Christmas tree and
nursery tree growers that
were ineligible under prior
legislation. Trees grown for


pulp or timber or not grown
for commercial purposes
are riot eligible.
To be eligible for TAP,
producers must have suf-
fered more than a 15 per-
cent death loss due to the
.natural disaster after
adjustment for normal mor-
tality. TAP is a cost-reim-
bursement program, with
payments covering up to 70
percent of replant costs and
50 percent of pruning,
removal and other sal-
vaging costs for replacing or
salvaging damaged trees.
Producers can receive
assistance for up to ,500
acres of trees, bushes or
vines. Producers must also
have purchased a policy or
plan of insurance under the
Federal Crop Insurance
Act or Noninsured Crop
Disaster Assistance
Program, or for 2008,
obtained a waiver of the
risk management purchase
requirement through the


buy-in provision. Eligible
losses must have occurred
on or after Jan. 1, 2008,
and before Oct. 1, 2011.
For more information on
the new TAP program,
please contact your county
FSA office or the website at
http://www.fsa.usda.gov.

H. Bronsoni, Commissioner.Funding supplied by the USDA Forest Service, an equal opportunity provider.


The Florida High School
Athletic Association Board
of Directors voted unani-
mously recently to create a
new division to provide
additional opportunities for
competition for private and
public schools in rural
areas.
The Rural Division
would be comprised of
member high schools in
communities which have
been designated as rural by
the Office of Tourism,
Trade and Economic
Development (OTTED)
and whose student enroll-
ment is 500 or less. The
classification shall be limit-
ed to boys and girls basket-
ball, baseball, football, boys
and girls soccer, softball and
girls volleyball. The cre-
ation of this division is con-
tingent upon acceptance by
a representative number of
potential members.
Further details will be
determined during the
reclassification discussion
at the Board of Directors
meeting in November.
"The vote was unani-
mous, sending a great mes-
sage of hearing the con-
cerns from our small rural
schools, and that the Board
is willing to create an
opportunity for fair and
equitable competition for
those schools that have a
limited student population
pool," said Executive
Director Roger Dearing.
"This was a vote that helps
about 40 to 50 schools, and
hurts no one."
Here in Calhoun
County, the news was well
received. "Athletically,
when you're competing
against schools from urban
areas like Jacksonville and
Ocala, it's hard to com-
pete," says Blountstown
High School Athletic
Director Greg Jordan. "It's
a more fair playing field.
Kids from Blountstown or
Chipley or Bozeman or
Bonifay, those kids are
more or less from that area
and always have been
there. In urban areas, they
have kids from other areas
moving in. It gives us a.
chance to compete at a
state level."
Coach Jordan says Gulf
County Superintendent
Tim Wilder gathered some
statistics that show how
unlevel the playing field
has been for the past
decade. Here is a break-


down of the state champi-
ons and runners up, with
the first number indicating
urban school winners and
the second number depict-
ing rural school winners:
Baseball 20 .urban
champions, 0 rural; 19
urban runners up, 1 rural
runner up.
Boys basketball 19-1
champion, 17-3 runners up
Football 13-5 champi-
ons, 10-8 runners up
Girls basketball 19-1
champions, 17-3 runners
up
Softball 17-3 champi-
ons, 16-4 runners up
Volleyball 20-0 champi-
ons, 20-0 runners up
"That illustrates the
competition level is not fair
when it gets to the state
level," Coach Jordan points
out.
The Board denied
another recommendation of
the Urban/Rural
Committee to investigate
the use of a "clearinghouse"
for international student
eligibility similar to the
clearinghouse system uti-
lized for school accredita-
tion, and that no more than
one international student
be eligible to participate on
each varsity level team. A
proposal to base classifica-
tions on a school's student
population for all grade lev-
els offered at a school
(sixth-12th grades) was
also denied.
In other action, the
Board of Directors:

Elected Keith
Summers, assistant princi-
pal of Blountstown Middle
School, as the president-
elect.
Approved the follow-
ing meeting dates "for the
2010-11 school year:

Pop-art masterpiece 'Toy Story 3'


For filmmakers, crafting
a quality sequel is a daunt-
ing task that is not often
successful, particularly in
an industry where it is con-
sidered acceptable and sig-
nificantly easier to churn
out an unsatisfactory, hack-
neyed product, slap some
cheap 3D effects on it, and
make just as much of a
profit as if the film were
actually worthwhile. A
Hollywood sequel is seem-
ingly ten times more likely
to be the next Big
Momma's House 2 than
another The Empire
Strikes Back.
As a result of this unfor-
tunate situation, the rare
sequel that lives up to or
surpasses its predecessors)
is cause for celebration. In
a summer filled with
unnecessary sequels, Toy
Story 3 stands triumphant
as a glorious conclusion to
one of the most beloved
franchises in film history.
During the film's open-
ing minutes, viewers learn
that Andy, owner of Sheriff
Woody and the gang, is all
grown up and leaving for
college. Amidst the chaotic
process of packing and
moving, the beloved toys,
intended to be stored in the
attic, are mistakenly
thrown out with the
garbage. After narrowly
escaping being crushed to
death at the hands of the
waste management truck,
our heroes, believing Andy
intended to discard them,
place themselves in a box
to be donated to Sunnyside
Daycare. Upon arrival at
their new home, Buzz
Lightyear and friends


receive a friendly initiation
from Lotso the "Lots-O'-
Huggin'-Bear", the seem-
ingly kind-hearted leader of
the Sunnyside toys; howev-
er, after a day of being
mangled and unwittingly
tortured by infants, they
learn that Sunnyside 'isn't
as happy a place as the col-
orful murals and well-main-
tained facilities would seem
to indicate.
This superb third install-
ment in the Toy Story saga
is the solo directorial debut
of Lee Unkrich, who edited
the previous films and co-
directed the second.
Unkrich's experience as an
editor has clearly served
him well, as he manages to
keep the visuals popping,
the plot smooth and coher-
ent, and the entire produc-
tion a fast-paced joy to
watch.
The voice actors all do a
phenomenal job of reprising
their roles, particularly
Tom Hanks (Woody) and
Tim Allen (Buzz
Lightyear), who have deliv-
ered remarkable vocal per-
formances in all three films
in the franchise. Jim
Varney, who voiced Slinky
Dog in the first two films,
sadly died before produc-
tion began on this film, so
his role was instead played
by longtime friend and
soundalike, Blake Clark.
Ned Beatty brings a dark,
sinister edge to Lotso, but
his fellow Toy Story new-
comer Michael Keaton is
the scene-stealer as a flam-
boyant Ken doll at
Sunnyside who instantly
falls for the gang's Barbie
doll.


The real star of Toy
Story 3, whom I credit the
film's success to more than
.anyone else, is screenwriter
Michael Arndt, the sharp
mind behind 2006's won-
derful Little Miss Sunshine
(for which he won an
Academy Award). Arndt's
simultaneously witty and
melancholy writing style
meshes perfectly with the
sensibilities and character-
istics of the Toy Story fran-
chise. Keeping with the
Pixar tradition, this magical
film is capable of making
angry grumps laugh like
schoolgirls and moving
hardened macho-men to
tears. It takes true genius
to make an audience feel
such a deep emotional
attachment to computer-
animated toys. These little
playthings have, in many
ways, become a meaningful
part of millions of lives over
the past 15 years. They are
animated icons, every bit
as important and recogniz-
able all over the globe as
Mickey Mouse, Homer
Simpson, and Bugs Bunny.
A pop-art masterpiece
and perhaps the finest
entry in one of cinema's
most treasured trilogies,
Toy Story 3 is a fully real-
ized, profoundly touching
epic that centers on love,
loss, and what it means to
be made of plastic in a
world controlled by fleshy
beings.

Driver escapes injury when pickup fishtails
A Blountstown man was fortunate toescape without injuries when his vehicle over-
turned last Wednesday morning. According to Trooper Ron Cox of the Florida Highway
Patrol, James Boutwell, 31, was northbound on SR 71 near A.J. Varnum Road around
10:20 a.m., driving a .1986 Toyota pickup and pulling a 2000 utility vehicle. The load on
the utility trailer was oversized, causing him to fishtail, and the pickup overturned on it's
side. The trailer was hauling the bed of another truck. Both the pickup and trailer wound
up blocking both lanes. Boutwell was cited for having an unsecured load.

spoke to the Altha Town


Mural cont'd


them. I approached Frank
with the idea and he
agreed. I wanted to do a
design that would look like
a historical mural, but still
be relative to his business. I
tried to incorporate the var-
ious elements of the survey-
or's job as it might relate to
the history of our town. It
has forestry, farm 'land, a
map of town, all the things
that a surveyor would have
been involved in in devel-
oping our town and coun-
ty."
Vickery's work has defi-
nitely turned some heads.
Folks are hitting their
brakes, pulling up and
checking out his master-
piece of a mural. And that's
exactly what those involved
in downtown revitalization
want to see happen.
"As far as my vision for
murals in our town, I think
places like Dothan and
Colquitt, Georgia, have


been able -to turn their
murals into a great tourist
draw. Blountstown has the
same potential to be able to
use murals arid art as a way
to stop some of these peo-
ple who pass through town
everyday," Vickery points
out. "I think that murals
with a historical theme
would suit Blountstown
better than something like
the murals in Philadelphia
which are more eclectic. I
think we have some inter-
esting history here and
murals are a great way to
help showcase that and,
hopefully, make people stop
a while in our town."

Anyone interested in
having Vickery design a
mural for their building can
contact him at 643-6135.
He plans to meet with
Blountstown Main Street
Thursday at 11:30 a.m. at
The Country Creamery.


--F.--.


I leave for work a 6:10
(ish). It is 32 miles, one
way. Right qff the bat I pass
Johnny Ray on his morning
walk with his dog. Just
before I pass him, he
throws up his right arm in a
wave, I toot my horn twice
in response, and make sure
I see where his dog is sniff-
ing at the moment and not
about to cross the road.
The different times of
year and day have different
events to see on Scottsferry
Road. Fields covered in
frost glistening in the sun-
rise, low fog around the
cypress trees, spider webs
dripping with dew by the
hundreds, constructed all
night, in hopes of catching a
few early morning insects,
probably -newly born.
Many times on the trip
home I will stop to watch a
summer lightning storm on
the horizon, or the moon
rise. I pass the same cars,
the one with the dim head
light, the one pulling a boat
and the occasional log
truck. I am mindful of deer,
turkey, skunk and even
black bear. (And mad
otters). Just as I see Johnny
Ray walking in the morn-
ings, in the evenings I see
Charlie sitting in front of his
barn, sometimes around a
camp fire. I toot, he waves.
I have never stopped and
introduced myself, but I
know his name is Charlie
because it says so on his
sign, "Charlie's Weld it":.
He has a most impressive
flag pole.
After I am on 231 it is
mostly familiar vehicles,
and the occasional- favorite
tree or mail box post. There
is one lady, she works for a
landscaping company.
They take particular pride
in making their own lawn
stay perfect, even the ditch
on their side of the road and
the median. Every morning
she is out there picking up
litter, I have not started
tooting' the horn at her yet,
too many cars anyway for
her to even notice me. (One
evening I was in the turn
lane about a half mile from
the landscaper. It appears
that if they are returning to
base from the west, they
have to pass up their place
and come all he way down
to this one and back track. I
looked up in my rearview
mirror and saw her; I knew
it was her because she has
distinctive hair. I noticed
she was constantly turning
hir head towards the medi-
an, I thought she was just
going to cut through the


grass and by-pass the light.
Suddenly she threw her
truck into park, jumped out
and picked up a paper cup
some knucklehead had
tossed out, a good half mile
from her area, but she
couldn't stand it. I think
that is neat.)
After passing the lady
with the hair, I cross where
the railroad tracks use to
be, and do a time check, it
should be no later than
6:50.....it usually is, with
two new traffic lights and
many more vehicles, the
old time lines don't work,
but it is hard to change old
habits.
Then I work, and the
people I encounter there
are for another story.
I don't so much see the
same vehicles on the way
home, because quitting
time varies. I do see some
of the same folks, such as
ole Weld it Charlie.
Just about every day I
will stop at First Stop. This
is ironic because for me, it's
the last stop. I have done
this for years and years, it is
almost ritualistic. I get one
bee... soda, yeah a soda, to
wash the day down and get
'back to civilization. They
are like a gate for me. Miss
Jane, who is always busy as
a bee, Keith, Selena, Cathy
and others I don't yet know
their names. There have
been scores of folks that
have come and gone from
there over the years, and I
have fond memories 'of
most. Keith always calls me
Mr. two eleven, because
that's what my ...soda cost.
Once, somehow, I
.knocked over a magazine
rack, which hit a shelf,
which tossed a box of pen-
cils etc. I started picking it
up, but Selena, who was
helping me, and Cathy
behind the counter insisted
that I just leave it, they
would take care of it, it was
not my fault, they had put
it too close'to the walkway,
in other words, being good
hosts, not just employees, a
quality they all seem to
have here. I continued to
pick up and place the mag-
azines on the rack when I
noticed some of them were
those "have you seen this
knucklehead" publications,
you know the type, covered
with mug shots and author-
ities' phone numbers.
Cathy said I was doing a
better job at putting them
in than they did (good host,
remember), but I told her I
had to confess, I knocked
.them over on purpose

Never A Dull Moment

because I noticed my face
on one of them and wanted
to hide it. She just laughed,
she has a great laugh, and
not afraid to use it.
Selena helped me pick
out a birthday present for
Nancy; yes, I bought her
present at a gas station, the
day of, and on the way
home. Remember, I got her
Valentine's present at Good
Will. But seriously, you find
the best knick-knacks at
gas stations, and they had
the prefect little piggies for
her.
For those of you still
reading this, and haven't
given up waiting on a point,
here it is. I have had this
idea rolling' around in my
noggin' to write about the
scores of folks I encounter,
especially the ones I only
interact with minutes or
even seconds.
Driving home one day
last week I was channel
surfing on the radio. At the
end of one song on a rock
station, the DJ felt the need
to announce that a (has
been) group pledged to
jump on board the boycott
BP train. I won't name the
group because that is most
likely the reason they ho-
boed on this train, to get
their name out there one
more time. At that moment
I thought about Selena,
Keith and Cathy. You see,
First Stop happens to have
a BP sign over it and on it's
pumps. Boycotting places
like these would go unno-
ticed by big corporations; it
would only serve to punish
good, honest hardworking
people. People with- fami-
. lies, just trying to put food
on the table. I am by no
means trying to excuse
whatever went wrong, but
it seems I remember a
friend of mine writing about
the qualifications for throw-
. ing the first stone, and I still
don't measure up. I do
know the good folks at First
Stop don't deserve to be
punished, neither do the
people that deliver goods to
them, or make those great
knick-knacks.

Be mad, express your-
self, it is bad, and going to
get worse, but think before
you jump on this particular
train. The oil spill has and
will affect many lives, con-
sider whose lives you could
derail by a pointless, boy-
cott, appreciate the folks
that make up your day, toot
the horn at that person you
always see, I bet they wave
back.

j The ceremony began
with the attachment of the

H brance of those being held
in foreign lands and or
missing. Post 12010 using
4 flowers, and evergreen as
symbolic symbols interwov-
en to represent the colors of
great the flag and of life present-
ounty ed the ceremony. The red
nd flowers represent the red
stripes of the flag reflecting
t next the courage of POW and
actions MIA, the white stripes of
the Flag represent the puri-
ty of purpose for which they
served, the blue field is rep-


resented by blue flowers
reflecting truth and fidelity
and the desire of our miss-
ing veterans for peace, the
evergreen represents undy-
ing love for our country
whose color green bespeaks
the everlasting, and "As the
Flag of the United States
symbolizes victory over


oppression for the living, so
the laurel wreath symbol-
izes victory over death for
those who have made the
supreme sacrifice.
Therefore, we place this
last token of affection in
honor of our missing ser-
vicemembers who have go
to their final reward."

The Art o f .0i l1;.

One of the most interesting old fashioned traditions you'll ever see
demonstrated at the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement is definitely black-
smithing. The Settlement is home to an authentic Blacksmith's Shop that
provided the perfect setting for a blacksmithing class held Saturday. Folks
came from miles around to try their hand at making some unique tools.
Hats off to these guys who braved the heat and worked over hot flames,
hammering out their creations.
