It was a cold day in
1773 when a group of
colonists threw a tea
party in the Boston
Harbor to protest taxa-

the nation, citizens angry
over a variety of issues,
including the proposed
plan for national health-
care and the Cap and
Trade Bill, are holding tea
parties of their own.
Here in Calhoun
County, several voters are
extremely disgruntled by
what they see as a lack of

County

considers

adding trash

bill to taxes
BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
Your property tax bill
may soon have a new item:
garbage service.
The Calhoun County
Commission is working to
come up with a new plan
for garbage fee collection
after the private contractor
handling the local service
was ready to chunk the
whole deal.
According to
Commissioner Don Miller
(district 3), Waste
Management .has been
handling garbage service
for Calhoun County, but
few are using it and, of
those, many are not paying.
"We have an ordinance
that says you must have
garbage service if you live
in the unincorporated areas
of Calhoun County," says
Miller.
Despite the fact that
there are 3700 homes in
the county that should be
utilizing Waste
Management for their
garbage :service, only 32
percent of them are having
their trash picked up. Of
those, 15 percent are in
arrears.
"Waste Management is
a business and they are
spending fuel and labor
here," Miller points out.
"They told us May 1 they
were out of the garbage
business. We begged .them
to wait two more months
and that put us through
July. They realized we were
serious because we hired
consultants, so they agreed
to continue at $21 per
month through December."
After meeting with con-
sultants and a logistics spe-
cialist to figure out how to
get the garbage system
handled properly, commis-
sioners are leaning toward'
taking bids from private
companies, then the county
would handle the billing
process with every resi-
dence in the unincorporat-
ed areas being billed for
garbage annually on their
property tax bill. Those
with land only will not be
billed and commercial
billing will be separate.
S"We have five different
companies who have
expressed interest in
billing," says Miller. "If this
will save the citizens
money, we will do this. If
not, we will regroup and
plan a different direction."

Altha man injured when hba.lthearc at Rlmnntstown forum


cement truck overturns

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor

An Altha man was injured when his cement truck
crashed in Jackson County last Wednesday.
Roy Davis, 44, was airlifted to Tallahassee Memorial
Hospital in serious condition.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Davis was
behind the wheel of a 1993 Mack cement truck owned by
Griffin Sand & Concrete. He was traveling north on SR 69
around 7:05 a.m., then lost control as he made a right turn
onto a dirt road at a construction site where the vehicle
overturned onto it's left side.
Jackson County Fire & Rescue units responded and
removed Davis who was trapped inside.
Hospital officials confirmed Monday that he had been
released from TMH.
The accident was investigated by Sgt. G.E. Williamson.

U.S. Congressman Allen
Boyd (D-North Florida)
will host a community
forum at the W.T. Neal
Civic Center in
Blountstown at 10:00 a.m.
CDT on Tuesday, August
18.
Congressman Boyd will
be speaking about efforts to
strengthen the economy


and the healthcare debate
in Congress.
The forum also will give
the people of Calhoun
County the opportunity to
ask questions on various
issues of local, state, and
national importance.
"Like many people in
North Florida, I know that
responsible healthcare


reform is needed, but it
must be done right," said
Congressman Boyd. "I felt
it was important to take the
month of August to meet
with people across the dis-
trict and discuss the pro-
posed healthcare legislation
that is being debated in
Congress. This community
forum will be an opportuni-


ty for me to hear from the
people of Calhoun County
about what they want to
see out of comprehensive
healthcare reform and
answer their questions."

sman Boyd's Tallahassee

Free help is available to

kick nicotine addiction


To the Editor:
Throughout my years in
public service, healthcare
has always been the issue
that I have heard most
about - I've heard from
North Florida families
struggling with rising
healthcare costs and insur-
ance premiums; I've heard
from small businesses own-
ers who are straining to
provide healthcare to their
employees; and I've heard
from seniors concerned
about the cost of prescrip-
tion drugs. Healthcare is
an issue that impacts every
aspect of our lives and
touches each one of us per-
sonally.


While there is no doubt
that our current inefficient
and costly healthcare sys-
tem needs to be reformed,
it must be done right, and
that is why I do not support
the current House health-
care bill. The House bill
does not do nearly enough
to reduce costs or ensure
patient choice - it simply
dumps more people into a
broken system. I also do
not support the current
House healthcare , bill
because of the way the
public option is structured,
and I will not support a
public option that does not
establish a level playing
field, reduce .costs, or pro-


vide the quality of care that
is currently available to
millions of federal employ-
ees through the Federal
Employees Health Benefits
Program.
I worked with my Blue
Dog colleagues to postpone
a vote on the House health-
care bill in July because the
current bill is a bad bill and
does not accomplish my
goals of reducing costs,
improving access, and
ensuring patient choice
without adding to our fed-
eral deficit. I am spending
the month of August hold-
ing community forums
throughout North Florida
to discuss what responsible


healthcare reform looks
like. I encourage the peo-
ple of Calhoun County to
attend the community
forum I am holding in
Blountstown on Tuesday,
August 18, at the Neal
Civic Center. We need to
continue working - howev-
er long it takes - to get
healthcare reform right and
develop a bill that repre-
sents a responsible and
bipartisan approach to
mend our broken health-
care system for the benefit
of everyone, not just the
uninsured.

Congressman Allen
Boyd (D-FL)

Let It

~Beyin

With Me
BSy i'he TCya Cy,
%MarCa C{CCey

For many years there has been discussions about how to
improve health care for everyone. There are many questions
and many people that are working very hard to find some
.answers.
While the debale goes on we have to .remember that
FLYing (Finally Loving Yourself) includes taking care of You!
Keeping our own health and well being'in the forefront of our
lives. This means'not procrastinating on eating right, exer-
cising, doing our self -breast exams and more. We need to
make our wellness a priority in our lives and not put our-
selves last.
The song "Let There' Be Peace on Earth" includes a line'
that says : "Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with
me' My health is my ultimate responsibility and it needs to
begin with me; not my husband, my son, my county, my
state or my country. It is mine! I have to make ME important
I want to live a long and happy life!
I am the one that chose to overeat and carry around Body
Clutter. I am also the one who has not rustled her stumps and
go for a walk. Most of my life I have not made my health a
priority. It took a wake up call to bring my health to my atten-
tion.


A few weeks ago I started Jonathan Roche's No Excuse
Weight Loss and walking intervals. I reached out to my dear
friend Michele to help me and she is my trainer. I have given
her permission to tell me what to do. This keeps me account-
able and no procrastination is allowed. We are walking three
mornings a week. At first we were driving to an urban trail. It
would take us fifteen minutes to get there and 15 minutes to
go back home. By that time the morning was slipping away.
One morning I asked her if we could walk up our moun-
tain road and back home. Each day has gotten easier. My
friend Pam has been walking up her mountain road for sev-
eral years now. She has been such a good example for me.
That is what made me release my guilt for taking too much
time out of my morning. It was just so simple to walk out my
door and up my mountain. I could not believe that this morn-
ing I could not wait to get out there. I am no longer whining
that I don't have time! I had to find what worked for me!
Ten years ago I relieved the stress in my life by getting my
house in order. Right after that my friend Leanne Ely helped
me to learn how to eat to live; not live to eat and now
Jonathan is encouraging me to get off my body clutter and
move! This journey is the only one I am ever going to take. It
is time to take care of my car so I won't break down along
the way.
Last Wednesday (Anti-Procrastination Day) I had my
annual physical and this Wednesday I had my mammo-
gram. It only took eleven minutes. You can do anything for
15 minutes. Having routine maintenance is'going to keep
our cars in good running order. We deserve to run well too!
Finally Loving Yourself is the fuel that keeps you on the road
to a long and healthy life! Eating healthy food, moving your
body and eliminating the stress in your life is going to take
you all the way home!
Join Jonathan and Leanne in their groups on Big Tent. Big
Tent is an online community where you can have all your
group messages under one roof. It is an efficient way to be a
part of a community. You will see a link displayed on their
pages. Big Tent was developed by a woman for women. After
all we go to the internet for community!

Florida CFO Alex Sink
is urging Florida's self-
employed individuals to
take advantage of the
August open-enrollment
period that allows single-
group employers, sole pro-
prietors, independent con-
tractors and others to
obtain health insurance or
switch plans on a guaran-
teed-issue basis.
"This is critical informa-
tion , for self-employed
Floridians because they are
guaranteed coverage under
Florida law, but only if they
enroll this month," said
CFO Sink. "I am reaching
out to our state's small busi-
ness owners, who are the
backbone of Florida's econ-
omy, and urging them to
take advantage of this
open-enrollment period."
From August 1 through
31, 2009, insurers and
Health Maintenance
Organizations (HMOs) that
write small-group policies
must offer basic and stan-
dard coverage to self-
employed Floridians with-
out regard to health status.
Policies written or renewed
in August have a plan start
date of October 1, 2009.
Applicants must meet all
of the conditions and crite-
ria established by law, and
provide documentation ver-
ifying the operation of an
active business, including
tax forms, license informa-
tion and business receipts,
per Florida Statute
627.6699(3)(u).

My Child Is

A Dreamer

By Paul F. Joyner,
Ph.D

I do not believe that any child has dreamed as did Joseph
of Bible note. The thing that infuriated his brothers was that
all his dreams were self-centered. If only he had had the
sense to keep his mouth shut! But no, he had to tell his
brothers all the details, with a smug expression on his face,
as if to say, "I may be just a kid, but the day will come when
you will all look up to me!"
You remember, his sheaf of wheat stood upright, while
those of'his brothers bowed before it. His father said: "What
is this dream thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and
thy brothers indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to
the earth?"
Well, his brothers had had all they could take, and at the
first opportunity, they sold him to a passing caravan, on its
way to Egypt.
It is fine to be a dreamer - to look forward to the future, to
work towards its accomplishment. Joseph's dreams came
true, and, in the providence of God, they probably would not
have done so if he had not been such a boaster. Yet we must
conclude that his dreams were divinely inspired, and it is not
every young man or woman who is so "tuned to the infinite."
Joseph was a listener, as well as a dreamer.
I suspect that in this respect Joseph was not far different
from today's teenagers, who (at least in the eyes of one who
is much older) seem to give themselves no time to LISTEN.
Their math is studied to the accompaniment of the latest hit
tunes, with the volume turned to the maximum. When they
go for a hike through the countryside, or to the seaside or to
the mountains, they cannot relax unless they are accompa-
nied with a walkman or other device, again turned so,loud
that the birds quit singing in amazement. They cannot go to
sleep in quietness. Yet those young people must somehow
take time to dream, to think, to plan. I guess the best thing
we can do is to pray that the batteries do not run out.
After all, nothing is ever accomplished without first a
dream.

New mammography service



at Calhoun-Liberty Hospital


BY RON GILLIARD
Administrator

Hope you're having a
great summer. Let me
share some great news
from Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital to make it an even
better one!
Our Board has approved
something that will be a
tremendous benefit to the
ladies of our community.
We will add digital mam-
mography :services very
soon, hopefully before the
end of this month. This will
continue their commitment
to upgrade the services we
provide to you.
Digital mammography is
a system in which the x-ray
film is replaced by solid-
state detectors that convert
x-rays into electrical sig-
nals. These detectors are
similar to those found in
digital cameras. It is, as I
love to say, "state-of-the-
art" equipment!
Mammograms are used
as a screening tool to detect
early breast cancer in
women experiencing no
symptoms and to detect
and diagnose breast disease
in women experiencing
symptoms such as a lump
or pain.
We're very .peased.to be
offering this upgraded serv-
ice and feel it's a great com-
plement to our other tests
for women's health. We
also have a dexascanner
machine to detect osteo-
porosis. It would be a good
idea to schedule a test with
this machine at the same
time you receive your
mammogram, and perhaps
on an annual basis.
Our new ultra-sound
machine is also very helpful
in assisting our doctors in.
detecting problems early or
following up on problems
perhaps identified with the
new digital mammography.
It too, is a "fancy piece of
equipment!"
Our well trained and
highly skilled technicians
will perform these exams in
a courteous, compassionate
and understanding manner.
And we have excellent
radiologists that will read
the results and notify your
doctor of any problems
immediately.
We can perform both
routine "screening" mam-
mograms as well as "diag-
nostic" mammography.
Screening mammogra-
phy helps in the early
detection of breast cancers
because it can show
changes in the breast up to
two years before a patient
or physician can feel them.
That's why current
guidelines from the U.S.
Department of Health and
Human "Services, the
American Cancer. Society,
the American Medical
Association and the
American College of
Radiology -all recommend
screening mammography
every year for women,
beginning at age 40.
The National Cancer
Institute recommends that
women who have had
breast cancer and those
who are at increased risk
due to a genetic history for
breast cancer should seek
expert medical advice
about whether they should
begin screening before age
40 and about the frequency
of screening.
Research has shown
that annual mammograms

lead to early detection of
breast cancers, when they
are most curable and breast
conservation therapies are
available. When cancers
are small, the woman has
more treatment options
and a cure is more likely. It
greatly improves a doctor's
ability to detect small
tumors.
Diagnostic mammogra-
phy is used to evaluate a
patient with abnormal clin-
ical findings - such as a
breast lump or lumps - that
have been found by the
woman or her doctor.
Diagnostic mammography
may also be done after an
abnormal screening mam-
mography in order to eval-
uate the area of concern on
the screening exam.
Our radiologist will ana-
lyze the images and send a
signed report to your doctor
who will discuss the results
with you. We will notify
you of the results as well.
From the patient's point
of view, having a digital
mammogram is essentially
the same as having a con-
ventional film screen mam-
mogram. However, .with
the new machine, the time
of exposure is much less for
the exam.
This is important from
the standpoint of less pain
as well as less exposure to
radiation. It helps ensure


that those parts of a
patient's body not being
imaged receive minimal
radiation exposure. And
again, we have wonderful
techs performing the exam.
Also, our mammogra-
phy room has been "adopt-
ed" by Angie Hill and her
Merle Norman Cosmetic
Studio. It will be an attrac-
tive and pleasing area.
Thanks Angie!
We're very pleased to
offer this service. It's yet
another way our patients
can "stay home" and
receive critical medical
care, at their convenience.
We're also happy to pro-
vide "women's health"
here at Calhoun-Liberty


Hospital. Our mammogra-
phy, dexascan and ultra-'
sound equipment all help'
improve services to you.
And we'll continue to
add new and useful services
for all our patients. (Stay
tuned soon for even more
good news involving diag-
nostic scopes!)
I encourage you to dis-
cuss these potentially life
saving exams with your.
doctor and then give us a
call to schedule them.
(Radiology is at 674-5411,
ext 216.)
If you have any ques-
tions about our new digital
mammography or anything
about the hospital, give me
a call at 674-5411, ext 206.

Calhoun County Horsemen's


ninth inning rally falls short


BY JIM McINTOSH
ALTHA, AUGUST 9-
What began as just a pleas-
ant Sunday afternoon drive
for Gulf County almost
ended up as a bad wreck.
After Calhoun County
had scored 4 runs to pull to
within a run, 9-8, the Drive
brought starting pitcher,
Matt Gannon, back to the
mound. With 2 outs
Gannon hit designated hit-
ter Tony Golden and lead
off batter Brandon Gardner
worked the count full
before drawing a walk.
With the home crowd
cheering him on, Brandon
Smith stepped up to the
plate. In his two previous
at bats he had doubled and
singled. However, he lifted
the first pitch he saw and
shortstop Phil McCroan
wrapped leather around it
to end the Horsemen's rally
and the game.
Through the first four
innings of last Sunday's
second round playoff game
the Drive (13-8) had built
an 8-0 lead. During that
span Adam Nixon drove 3
homeruns out of the pas-
ture accounting for 6 of
those runs.
Calhoun County (11-8)
cut into that lead with their
first run in the sixth inning.
Brandon Smith led off with
a double down the right
field line and Ben Faurot
walked. Jeremy Proctor
flied out to short right field
and Brandon Smith beat
the throw to third base.
;Josh McIntosh laid down a
1-0 bunt down the third
base line for a base hit and
Smith scored on the play.
The Horsemen made it
an 8-4 ballgame by tacking
on 3 runs in the seventh
inning. With two outs both
Tony Golden and Brandon
Gardner walked. Brandon
Smith slapped a single into
left centerfield, Golden
came afroind "t-score and
Gardner'-made his way to
third base. That Vihased
Gulf County's starting
pitcher, Matt Gannon, from
the hill and Phil McCroan
came on in relief. . Smith
stole second base before
Ben Faurot ripped a.grass-
burner through the right
side that plated Gardener
and Smith.
Catcher Byrd Ramsey
gave the Drive a 9-4 lead
(and the game-winning
run) with his only hit of the
day--a solo shot over the
left field fence in the top of
the ninth inning.
Ben Faurot banged a
double off the centerfield
fence to begin the
Horsemen's ninth inning.
Jeremy Proctor reached on


Liberty Dawgs, Gu(fDrive

-In round two of the Big Bend playoffs, #3 seed Gulf
Drive defeated #2 seed Calhoun Horsemen, 9-8. in
Calhoun's "Cotton Patch" at Altha. In Liberty County.

a single and Faurot
advanced to third. Josh
McIntosh turned on a 1-0
pitch and delivered a single
into left field that allowed
Faurot to cross the dish.
Tad Scott made it a one-
run game, 9-8, after he
lasered a 0-2 pitch over the
centerfield fence that plat-
ed Proctor and McIrtosh.
Gannon came back to
the mound to relive
McCroan get the last three
outs and end Calhoun
County's season.
Gulf County out hit
Calhoun County, 12-9.
Both teams had 8 earned
runs and they each left 11
men on base. The Drive
walked 10 batters while the
Horsemen's pitching staff
surrendered only 5.
Calhoun County's
hurlers-Matt Creamer,
Jeremy and Jason Barber--
struck out 11 batters while
Gulf County's Matt
Gannon and Phil McCroan
fanned 10.
Gannon earned the win
for the Drive. In 71/3
innings of work he gave up
4 earned runs off of 4 hits.
He struck out 8.batters and
issued 6 walks. ,- I
The Horsemen's -Matt-
Creamer was saddled with
'the' iss. Through 3 innings
he allowed 4 runs (all
earned) off of 4 hits. He
fanned 4 batters and gave
up 4 walks.

the game was Gulf

at bats), scored 3 times and

ing a double), scored a run

Lecture on Apalachicola

River set for Thursday


The Coastal & Marine
Conservation Lecture
Series is open to the public
and occurs on the second
Thursday of each month in
the Florida State
University Coastal &
Marine Laboratory
Auditorium. "Declining
Flows and Levels in the
Apalachicola River and
Effects on Floodplain
Habitats" is the topic of the
lecture set for Thursday,
August 13, from 7 to 9 p.m.'
ET. Helen M. Light, U.S.
Geological Survey, retired,
will be the featured speak-
er. Light refreshments will
be served after the lecture.
Apalachicola River lev-
els have been declining for
more than 50 years, with
consequences to forests and
streams throughout its
extensive floodplain. Over
the last three decades, the
composition of floodplain
forests has shifted to a drier
mix of species, and further
changes toward drier
species could continue for
many more decades.
Swamp species (water


tupelo, Ogeechee tupelo,
bald cypress, and Carolina
ash) have declined in densi-
ty, with approximately 3.3
million fewer swamp trees
estimated in a 2004-06
study than were reported in
studies from 1976 to 1979.
Some low bottomland hard-
woods' such as overcup oak
and green ash have also
declined in numbers in bot-
tomland hardwood forests,
while drier species such as
water oak and hackberry
have become more numer-
ous.
Floodplain streams,
sloughs, and lakes are dis-
connected from the main
river channel more often
and for longer durations
than 50 years ago, substan-
tially decreasing offstream
habitat for fishes, mussels,
and other aquatic animals.

The Florida State
University Coastal and
Marine Laboratory is locat-
ed at 3618 Highway 98 in
St. Teresa (between
Carrabelle and
Crawfordville).

Free driver improvement program being offered to...




Keep your teen safe on the road


BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor

Although she'd never
had the first sip of booze
Friday, Ande Andrews was
as drunk as a skunk when
she got behind the wheel
and crashed into construc-
tion cones. And standing by
watching the whole scene
was a team of Florida
Highway Patrol troopers.
Fortunately for
Andrews, her drunk driving
experience won't land her
in jail, in a hospital bed, or
even worse - in the grave.
This Liberty County. High
School teen was among
several students from both
sides of the bridge who took
part in Teen Driver
Improvement training.
The program, funded by
a Highway Safety Grant
through the Florida
Department of
Transportation, is a free
course that educates teen
drivers about the dangers
of impaired driving, aggres-
sive driving, and distracted
driving. It also is an oppor-
tunity to reinforce the ben-
efits of seatbelt use.
But the troopers teach-
ing the course got some
help on the latter topic
when a teen showed up for
the class last Thursday and
shared her own experience.
"She had been in a rollover
accident two weeks ago,"
Trooper Jason. King
reports. "She told us she
wasn't lucky, she was
blessed."
Joining Trooper King in
teaching the class were his
partners on the road,
Troopers Dusty Arnold,
Ronnie Snipes, and Wes
Harsey.
"We wanted to. show
teens that local troopers
from here, who graduated
here, really care about
them," King remarks.
"When we write them a
ticket, we are not trying to
;be mean - it's because we
do care." -

training participants have
been receiving in their half
day sessions, they won't be
getting any traffic tickets.
After a classroom session
where they talk about real
road issues, the teens get to
experience some driving
situations in hands on train-
ing behind the wheel of a
golf cart.
With the training held at
the Veterans Memorial
Civic Center in Bristol, the
back parking lot provides a
perfect site for the driving
course lined with cones.
The first time around the
course, the teens get famil-
iar with the roadway. The
second time, they experi-
ence typical distractions
with friends in the back
talking and yelling, a radio
blaring, the cell phone ring-
ing, someone texting, all
the things that go on regu-
larly in cars driven by
teens. And, let's be honest,
even adults. The third time
around is an experience all
it's own. The teen driver is
fitted with goggles that sim-
ulate what the world looks
like when you're drunk.
The driver fumbles for the
keys, tries to crank the golf
cart, then tackles the road.
Needless to say, many
cones hit the ground in this
portion of the class, but
teens see in a safe environ-
ment how dangerous it is to
consume alcohol or drugs,
then get behind the wheel.
After the driving por-
tion, teens return to the
classroom for a brief talk
and a dramatic conclusion
to the program. Students
are asked to pull out a
piece of paper and pen,
then think about their
loved ones. The troopers
then ask them, "If this was
your last letter, what would
you say?"
Participants get a
chance to think about how
their choices on the road
could literally end their
lives as they write that let-
ter.. "They can keep it and

BY WHITNEY CHERRY
4-H Agent

Calhoun County 4-H
has been very busy this
summer!
We kicked off the sum-
mer with a Babysitting Day
Camp held at the
Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement on June' 3rd
where area youth learned
how to safely care for
infants, toddlers, young
children, and even pre-
teens. They learned about
developmental stages of
youth including what toys,
foods, and games are best
for each group. They also
learned basic first aid with
the help of Calhoun County
EMS, and how to market
their business with the help
of Calhoun County
Chamber of Commerce
Executive Director Kristy
Halley Terry.
The very next week
youth were engaged in a
Sports And Recreation Day
Camp where they learned
to Kayak, play team sports,
and even biked the City of
Blountstown Greenway
with help from the
Blountstown Police
Department crossing major
highways.
On June 16th and 17th,
our youth were in Liberty
County at the Veteran's
Memorial Civic Center
learning to use GPS tech-
nology. They learned to
mark and find waypoints,
use the different functions
of the GPS, and how effec-
tive GPS units are. As a
safety precaution they also
learned to use a compass
and map in case their GPS
didn't work. They enjoyed
Geo-caching, and were
amazed at the number of
local caches available. To
wrap up each day of camp
we learned more about
local occupations that use
GPS technology. State
Trooper Jason King spoke
to the youth, and showed
them the amazing technolo-
gy used by some of our law
enforcement officers. The
kids were amazed at all of
the things the GPS and
GIS technology could tell
the officers about what was
going on in their area. We
also heard from Division of
Forestry's Steve Oswald
who taught us how to use a
GPS to mark the area of a


burn site, and much more.
Finally, surveyor Frank
Snowden came to show us
the amazing accuracy of his
equipment. After a hide
and seek style demonstra-
tion the youth were awed at
how close he could get to
the tiny objects they had
hidden; After such amaz-
ing demonstrations from
these three volunteers, it
was clear to the youth that
learning to use the GPS
was a worthwhile experi-
ence!
June 22-26 was our
County Camp 'Week at
Camp Timpoochee, and 16
youth from Calhoun
County joined others from
Liberty and Jackson
Counties for a week of
FUN! We celebrated 100
years of 4-H in Florida with
kayaking, snorkeling, sport
fishing, learning about
healthy lifestyles, crafting,
and so much more! Among
other favorites were the tal-
ent show, marshmallow
paint war, and camp fire.
As we wrapped up the
week and reflected on how
far Florida 4-H had come
in the last 100 years, all
campers agreed that air
conditioned cabins and
indoor plumbing were their
favorite changes to the
camping program!
Summer still wasn't
over when we returned
from Camp Timpoochee, so
we had yet another day
camp on July 7th and 8th
centered around Outdoor
Fun. Campers enjoyed
seeing Mr. Steve Oswald
again from the Division of
Forestry. This time he lead
them on a hike and taught
them to identify several
common trees. His teach-
ing paid off when the youth
were tested in a race to see
who could identify all of the
trees the ' fastest.
Participants also learned
the importance of trees to
our everyday living, what
kinds of products come
from trees, and how trees
grow through the seasons.
They continued the fun
with paper making, educa-
tional relay races, and an
interesting game that
taught the importance of
camouflage for animals in
the wild.
After a week of Outdoor
Fun, we shifted gears and
learned about Proper


Etiquette on July 14th.
The morning started at the
Pioneer Settlement where
Mrs. Monica Brinkley
taught participants how to
set a table properly, how to
make introductions, how to
use silverware correctly,
and how to keep our con-
versations nice without
being nosey or offensive.
Youth were able to put
their knowledge to the test
with a trip to Tallahassee's
Che' Pier for lunch where
they enjoyed traditional
French cuisine including
escargot! After a delicious
lunch campers returned to
the Pioneer Settlement for
more lessons in etiquette,
including proper etiquette
involving the United States
Flag.
Just when we thought
the summer was drawing to
a close the Calhoun County
EMS surprised us by offer-
ing a CPR certification
course for our Babysitting'
Day Camp participants!
They met at the Calhoun
County Extension Office
where they learned CPR,
Abdominal thrust, and
AED techniques for adults,
youth, and infants. It was
such a treat to have the
training made available,,
and the youth were very
grateful to the County
EMS when they were sur-
prised with the fact that the
training was free. EMS
graciously provided their
time, services, and materi-
als for free, and even donat-
ed the money to pay for
CPR cards for each of the
youth.
So, to sum it up,
Calhoun County 4-H has
had a wonderful summer.
We thank all of our sup-
porters, and appreciate the
respectful nature of our
youth. Please continue to
look for other 4-H pro-
grams throughout the year,
and feel free to contact
Whitney Cherry at (850)
674-8323 for more infor-
mation on how 4-H can
serve you! 4-H is open to
all youth, ages 5-18,
regardless of race, gender,
ethnicity, creed, nationality,
or disability. Persons with
disabilities should contact
the Extension Office at
least 10 working days prior
to the event so that proper
consideration can be given
to the request.


These boys had a blast
kayaking during the
sports and recreation
day camp.

Thanks to all those who
participated in 4-H
summer camps!

Tim Adams
FuneralDirector
It's not a choice most
people like to think about,
but the selection of a funeral
home is a key decision for a
family in bereavement.
Nothing can erase the loss
of a loved one, but it eases
the burden when the
arrangements are carried
out by people who are
sensitive to your needs and
concerns.
We invite you to learn
more about the thoughtful
advantages of pre-planning
and funding the funeral
service. In quiet privacy we
shall be pleased to provide
informed counsel and
attentive answers
concerning pre-
arrangement.
Any discussion is in the

Wendy Shiver; his cher-
ished grandson, Garrett
Bradley Tidwell; his sister,
Jessie Mae Doyal; his
brother, Theron Shiver, and
his wife, Bea; a dear broth-
er-in-law, Larry Owens; a
niece, four nephews, and
many other extended fami-
ly members.
He was a devoted family
man, an adoring, dedicated
husband, beloved daddy
and doting granddaddy.
Brother Oliver was a faith-
ful member of the
Chattahoochee Assembly
of God Church and sang
bass in the choir. He loved
the Lord and witnessed
without apology or shame.
He served in the Air Force
in the Korean War, then
married his soul mate and
moved, to Tampa. He
retired from Continental
Can Company in 1987 and
relocated back to the tri-
county area to be near fam-
ily in 1995. He raised cows
on his farm in Georgia, cut
his own hay, gardened, and
fished. He was never too
busy for family whom he
loved and cherished so very
much. He was a faithful
friend to many in the sur-
rounding area and helped
his neighbors until he
became too ill.
Though God called him
home too soon, he will
never be forgotten and will
be deeply missed by all
whom he touched. May the
peace of God rest in our
hearts as we celebrate his
homecoming with our Lord
and Savior. We will miss
you always and await the
blessed day when we can
see your face and hold you
in our arms forever, never
to be separated again. His
greatest prayer was that his
family, friends and fellow
man would not go out into
eternity without knowing
the Lord Jesus as their per-
sonal savior.
Funeral services were
held Saturday, August 8, at
11 a.m. at Peavy Funeral
Home Chapel in
Blountstown with Rev.
Wyatt Shiver and Rev.
Andy Glover officiating.
Interment followed in the

Never A Dull Moment


by J.K. Newsome




A tribute to Kira, the best dog



that ever chased a tennis ball


My dog died this past
Thursday.
Her name was Kira.
Strange name I know, but
we are fans of Star Trek, so
we got into naming our pets
after the characters on the
shows. (For you other fans,
we had a pair of rabbits
named Troy and Riker.)
Kira was a character on
Deep Space Nine, she was
of an alien race and had
these ridges on the bridge
of her nose, and my dog
had black stripes on hers,
hence the name choice.
Her mother, B'lanna (a
half human, half Klingon
from Next generation) was

er mix. She was black with
a white spot on her chest,
but if she was in the light
just right, you could see the
gold in her coat. B'lanna
had got "caught" by a few
neighborhood dogs before I
knew it and had a litter.
One of the daddies was a
large brindle bull dog.
Despite my fixing B'lanna a
place to litter, she chose to
have them in a culvert pipe
out by the road. I had to get
them out before a rain
came or they would have
drowned. I made a hook
out of a flat piece of metal
attached to a pole and
scooped them out nicely.
As soon as I saw this
puppy, brown with black
tiger stripes, I knew male
or female, I was keeping it.
(Actually I prefer the
female dogs; they are
smarter and stay at home
more...traits unique to dogs
I suppose, LOL.)
I would try to spend
some time every day from
then on, holding her, so she
would know me from the
beginning. This helps in
training I am' told' I started-
leash training very early,
and it paid off.
We had adopted a kitten
just before Kira was born;
some Alpha Hotel had left
some kittens in a paper bag
in the middle of the road.
We got one and a friend
took the other. They were
undernourished as you
might expect.
Point being, Tiger and
Kira grew up together and
were as thick as fleas, no
pun intended.

Our other rescued cat,
Cecil B, had a litter and
Kira took it upon herself to
"mother" these kittens.
(Kira was fixed at six
months, so I suppose she
felt this was her only
chance.)
One. morning as I was
making coffee I could see
her playing with a shoe in

Calhoun County Supervisor of Elections office urges citizens to register and...





Vote in honor of a veteran


FROM THE OFFICE OF
MARGIE LARAMORE, SUPER-
VISOR OF ELECTIONS

Generations of our fami-
lies have been deeply
affected by the various con-
flicts and wars our nation
has fought. The global war
on terror, which includes
Operation Iraqi Freedom
and Operation Enduring
Freedom, affects every sin-
gle one of us today and con-
tinually reminds us of the
freedoms we often take for
granted - freedoms that our
veterans fought for and
freedoms that our military
continues to fight to defend
today.
- The sacrifices our veter-
ans have made on behalf of
this great state and nation
stand as examples that
emphasize the need for us
to take bou responsibilities
seriously, especially our
right to vote. The Calhoun
County Supervisor of
Elections Office is pleased
to provide the Vote in
Honor of a Veteran pro-


gram to our voters. Several
other Florida counties and
other states have variations
of this program that are tai-
lored to fit the needs in
their communities.
The goal of Calhoun
County's Vote in Honor of a
Veteran program is to
encourage voter participa-
tion among our entire vot-
ing population, as well as to
have another avenue to
teach our voting-age youth
about the sacrifices our vet-
erans have made and con-
tinue to make every day so
that we may continue to
live in a democratic society.
By exercising our right to
vote, we show veterans and
service members the
respect they deserve for
protecting our democracy.
Veterans have always
served us honorably. Let's
givb them the recognition
they have earned. The next
time you vote, Vote in
Honor of a Veteran.

How does the pro-
gram work?


Veterans and family
members of veterans who
wish to participate will
complete and submit a
photograph and a short
biography on a Vote in
Honor of a Veteran
Biography Form. The form
may be completed by a
family member of a veter-
an, a veteran, or by family
members of deceased vet-
erans or missing in action
veterans. The veteran's
photograph may be
scanned into our computer
while you wait (time-per-
mitting) or you may return
later to pick it up. You may
also e-mail the photograph
to us at soecalco@fair-
point.net.
On election day, and
during early voting, each
voter who votes in honor of
a veteran will receive an "I
Voted in Honor of a
Veteran" badge, to wear or
display elsewhere, on
which the veteran's name
and branch of service may
be written.
All Calhoun County vot-


ers are encouraged to Vote
in Honor of a Veteran. Our
hope is to personalize the
voting experience for
everyone and show our
gratitude to those who have
given so much to us all so
that we may continue to
live in freedom and exer-
cise our right to vote.
The corridor wall in the
Calhoun County
Courthouse outside of the
Elections Office has been
designated as our Vote in
Honor of a Veteran Wall,
and each veteran's photo-
graph that is submitted to
the program will be posted
on the wall.
You don't have to be
related to a veteran to vote
in honor of one. You don't
even need to know a veter-


an personally.
You'll do your part by
simply going to the polls at
election time and casting
your ballot in honor of
YOUR veteran. It's that
simple. Spread the word.

NEW! The Calhoun
County Supervisor of
Elections Office has a new
communication tool: We've
joined Facebook, where
you may interact with us
anytime you please! To
participate fully, all that's
required is that you have a
Facebook account and that
you become a "fan" of our
page. Click here to view
the page. A special high-
light of our Facebook page
is Vote In Honor of A
Veteran, and each week


(with permission) we fea-
ture veterans and members
of the U.S. Armed Forces
who participate in the pro-
gram. Those folks who are
members of Facebook are
able to write comments
about their veterans (or
any topic they wish, as long
as it is related to elections
and is not hostile in
nature). You're invited to
be a part!

For more information,
call the Elections Office at
674-8568, stop by their
office in the basement of
the courthouse, go to their
website at www.votecal-
houn.com, via email at soe-
calco@fairpoint.net or
check them out on
Facebook.


Tea Party continued


true representation in
Washington. Many have
expressed feeling betrayed
by Congressman Allen
Boyd who has professed to
being a Blue Dog
Democrat, but has leaned
further to the left on his
voting record.
"I think they're trying to
kill this country," says
Tommy Willianms, a
Blountstown resident who
is concerned by what is
happening in Washington.
"We are not doing what the
founding fathers intended."
Merrill 'Traylor says he
feels there is an' extreme
lack of representation.,
"They don't even know the
changes they are making,
but they want us to accept
them," he remarks, refer-
ring to the healthcare bill.
For some, recent votes
by representatives on the
hill have led them to con-
sider making a change they
never thought they'd make:
switching parties. The
sbuth is widely known for
it's conservative
Democrats. In fact, even
those who vote Republican


in presidential races here in
the panhandle are often
registered Democrats who
remain that way to vote in
local primaries with ple-
dominantly Democratic
candidates. But as
expressed around coffee
shop tables and at a gather-
ing of several local voters
Monday night, many feel
they aren't leaving the
Democratic party; they
believe the Democratic
party has left them.

Seventy-five year old
James "Snookie" White
has been a Democrat since
he was old enough to vote.
But that is about to change.
"I don't know if I'm going
Republican, but I'm chang-
ing. I may go
Independent."
Doug Goodman agreed.
"I've been a Democrat all
my life, but I'm changing
on account of lack of repre-
sentation."
Jason Dunn, 37, says he
has been a Republican
since he got his first voter
registration card at the age
of 18. However, he feels


like both parties have failed
voters in recent months.
"We've got representation,
but we don't have represen-
tation," he remarks, adding
that he plans, to register as
an Independent.
Congressman Boyd will
be visiting Blountstown this
Tuesday, Aug. 18, with a 10
a.m. community forum
planned at the W.T. Neal
Civic Center. According to
a press release from his
office, Boyd will be speak-
ing about efforts to
strengthen the economy
and the healthcare debate
in Congress. The public
will also be allowed to ask
questions on issues that
concern them.

As for the local voters
The County Record inter-
viewed Monday night, they
tossed their tea bags into
the middle of a table as a
symbol of their anger over
the same thing the folks in
Boston were upset about
two centuries ago: taxation
without ' representation,
Stay tuned to see where
this tea party leads.

neous grace." The ensem-

ous programming spanning
many periods and genres,

Renaissance music, con-


temporary works, art song,
