Complaint

is filed

against

building

inspector
BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
The Florida
Department of Business
and Professidnal Regulation
(DBPR) is investigating an
administrative complaint
against longtime Calhoun
County Building Inspector,
Dowling Parrish.
According to the DBPR,
Blountstown City Manager
James Woods received a
phone call back in January
to check out an unsafe elec-
trical condition at a Gaskin
Street home. He discovered
a new electrical meter and
service box installed, but
noticed the meter's glass
had been broken and had
duct tape wrapped around
it. There was reportedly
exposed electrical wiring
running from the service
box and around the natural
gas line. It was brought to
his attention that the elec-
trical service line had been
cut and reconnected by the
person installing this work
with the knowledge or per-
mission of the electrical
provider.
Parrish, who was also
serving as the city building
inspector, had approved the
work as his sticker was
"found on the meter;
Woods contacted the
BPD to have an officer sent
over to file a report, then
contacted DBPR.
Parrish advised Johnny
Cain had done the work. In
an interview back in March
with a DBPR investigator,
Cain said he had worked in
the past using the license
number of Tim Glass of
ATC Electrical &
Instrumentation, Inc. The
investigator conducted a
phone interview with Glass
who said that,Cain had pre-
viously worked for him, but
not currently, and he never
gave him authority to
acquire permits under his
license.
DBPR alleges Parrish
knowingly allowed Cain to
perform the electrical work
without proof of a license.
Parrish was contacted by
The County Record and
said he has legal represen-
tation and hopes to get the
matter resolved. He was
unable to comment at this
time.

High speed chase ends

in armed burglary arrests


BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor

A Tallahassee man with
ties to Calhoun County was
arrested
1 a s t
Tuesday for
armed bur-
glary, along
with sever-
al other
charges,
after a high
speed
chase. DAVID SCHAFFER
David
Al en
Schaffer, 38, was charged,
along with his teenage
nephew.
According to the
Calhoun County Sheriff's
Office, a homeowner on
Guilford Court advised that
her window had been bro-
ken out and a neighbor
reported seeing two white
males at her residence. A
wedding ring, knife, large
amount of loose change,
and a 9 mm pistol were all
reported missing.
The pair were spotted


walking on the Greenway
toward Sam Atkins Park.
Capt. Michael Bryant
located the red Dodge truck
they were suspected to be
in and attempted a stop,
but the driver accelerated
toward Bryant, nearly hit-
ting him head-on. The
chase was on from there,
with CCSO, BPD, and
FHP joining the pursuit
that went from
Blountstown to Scotts
Ferry, and winding up in
Clarksville where Schaffer
bailed on foot. He was
apprehended on Boy Blue
Road. The teen remained
at large and a K-9 tracked
him along the trail to 16th
Street. Found on the path
were a mask with eye holes
cut out and two pairs of
gloves. A citizen's tip led to
the arrest of the teen who
later confessed that he and
Schaffer had committed the
burglary.
Dorcas Beachy of
Blountstown says Schaffer
came within 5 feet of hitting
her car during the chase. A
semi was also almost hit.

CITIZENS SHARE CONCERNS WITH



BOYD AT COMMUNITY FORUM

S300 area residentsturned out for the Barbara spoke loud
Shoer onc o the

Svote






4e



Town Hall meetings across the nation have been very lively and that
was definitely the case in Calhoun County Tuesday morning when.
Congressman Allen Boyd held a forum at the W.T. Neal Civic Center. An
estimated 300 area residents.turned out for the gathering and Spoke loud
and clear about their stand on issues. The hottest topic of the day was
healthcare
Boyd stressed that he would not vote for the healthcare bill as present-
ed and stood with the Blue Dog Coalition, demanding a bill that includes

patient choice, addressingrising costs, access, ands something that is
deficit neutral.
"When are you goihg to realize you work for us and we don't want
any partof socialized medicine," said Sally Sims, a local teacher. Such
statements by nearly everyone who spoke drew a standing ovation.
A Frink woman noted that the Blue Dog Coalition is'heavily funded by
the healthcare industry and asked Boyd if he could serve two masters: his
constituents and those funding the Blue Dogs. "1 represent your interests
and nobody else's," he responded.
Others discussed their concern over Boyd's support for the Cap &
Trade Bill. One man said he and others made calls to Boyd's office to
complain and were hung up on or called 'robo callers'. Boyd said he
was always available to his constituents, kept his number listed, and
would get to the bottom of what reportedly happened with office staff.



Schools open Monday cont'd


Blountstown Elementary
School third grade students
were number two in the
state in FCAT math
results; Blountstown High
School is sending three
FFA teams tb perform in
national competitions.
There are many other peo-
ple and programs also that
have done outstandingjobs.
There are some assign-
ment changes in the school
district, also. Vicki Davis is
the new assistant superin-'
tendent and wears many,
many hats. Willy Pitts is


director of both transporta-
tion and facilities. Ronnie
Hand is project manager of
the new Blountstown High
School building program.
The estimated completion
date is March or April
2011. Our plans are for stu-
dents to begin classes in
August 2011 in the new
facilities and middle school
students to move to the
present high school location
at the same time. Ladona
Kelley is the new principal
at. Altha School and
Stephanie Brogden is the


new assistant principal at
Altha School.
With all of us working
together we will strive to
maintain our high academ-
ic standards and set goals
that will continue to sur-
pass our present achieve-
ment levels. In my opinion,
the greatest obstacle, we
face today .is finding the
funding to keep our person-
nel and have enough oper-
ating money to meet our
needs. The legislature con-
tinues to chop away. on
their funding levels- for


schools around the state
and throw more of the bur-
den on local taxpayers. We
will continue to try to work
within our means and be
good stewards of the tax-
payers' money. Many
school districts are broke or
on the verge. We must
maintain a healthy reserve
balance so we can ade-
quately operate our
schools.

BMS teacher Shannan Romer


wins ING Unsung Heroes grant


To really connect with
their students, educators
today are challenged with
developing innovative pro-
gram ideas and lessons that
integrate traditional
instruction yet are relevant
and compelling enough to
keep their students inter-
ested and excited about
learning. To turn their inno-
vative ideas into a reality,
many teachers find them-
selves personally having to
cover the costs to fund their
programs.
This can be especially
challenging in the economic
climate of today. Yet many
teachers still heed the chal-
lenge even though their
efforts sometimes go unno-
ticed. That's why ING, a
global financial services
company and leading
provider of retirement
plans and programs for
teachers, has taken notice
of these "unsung heroes."
ING is committed to help-
ing make it easier for edu-
cators to engage their stu-
dents by recognizing and
rewarding them for their
innovation and hard work.

Theresa Shannan
Romer, a teacher at
Blountstown Middle
School in Blountstown,
goes back to school with a
$2,000 kING Unsung
Heroes grant. Romer was
recently recognized as one
of the nation's most innova-
tive educators. in the 2009
ING Unsung Heroes
awards program. She was
one of 100 winners who
received a $2,000 award to
help fund her "Changing
the World - One Molecule
at a Time" innovative idea
and bring it to life in the
classroom. She will now
compete with other winners
for one of the top three


SHANNAN ROMER


prizes - an additional
$5,000, $10,000 or
$25,000.
The ING Unsung
Heroes awards program
recognizes Kindergarten
through 12th grade educa-
tors nationwide for their
innovative teaching meth-
ods, creative educational
projects and ability to posi-
tively influence the children
they teach. Since honoring
its first "unsung hero" 13
years ago in 1996, ING has
awarded $3.2 million to
nearly 1,400 educators
across the United States.
The 2009 ING Unsung
Heroes winners were
selected from a group of
more than 2,000 applica-
tions - a record number of
applications to date.
"Chahging the World -
One Molecule at a Time" is
a biotechnology program
created by Romer for the
students in her Intensive
Science Academy class at
Blountstown Middle
School. The unique pro-
gram, which is the only one
of its kind in Calhoun
County, will provide stu-
dents with an opportunity
to explore fields and activi-
ties related to current sci-
entific advances. They will
study genetic engineering,
commercial biotechnology,
and forensic science by


transforming bacteria, par-
ticipating in a simulation
and creating a gene clone of
a medicinal rainforest
plant. In addition, the stu-
dents will extract their own
DNA, separate and visual-
ize DNA fragments at a
"crime scene," and employ
DNA profiling. The pro-
gram will not only benefit
the 25 students in the class,
but the resources will also
be utilized by more than
100 additional science stu-
dents.
Romer, who resides in
Blountstown, hopes that
the program will prepare
students to live and com-
pete effectively and pros-
perously, open their eyes to
current events happening
around them, learn about
the types of scientific jobs
available, and inspire them
to enter the world of sci-
ence.
"We are honored to rec-
ognize the work of educa-
tors like Theresa Shannan
Romer whose tireless
efforts and dedication often
go .unnoticed," said Dan
Hanlon, senior vice presi-
dent, Public Market Sales,
ING U.S. Retirement
Services. "Each day these
heroes make the invest-
ment in the lives of
America's schoolchildren to
help prepare them for the
future. The return on the
investment is priceless
because it will be in the
success of our children as
future leaders and in the
foundation of our world for
years to come."

2010 ING Unsung Heroes
awards are available on the

United Way seeking applicants to


receive handicap-accessible van


Someone's dream of
increased mobility will
become a reality soon as
United Way of the Big
Bend (UWBB) began an
application process today to
determine who would bene-
fit the most from receiving
a donated, handicap-acces-
sible van.
The offer was made to
anyone in the Big Bend
who can demonstrate in a
one-page, letter that they
would benefit from owning
the van, which is a 2002
Chrysler Town & Country
LX Van.
The van has been cus-


tomized with the required
modifications to make it
accessible and drivable for
a person with a disability
who uses a wheelchair or
scooter. It will be awarded
to the person who submits
the most compelling need
for the van after the appli-
cant-review process is com-
pleted.
"My dad no longer had a
need for the van and want-
ed to give it to someone
who could truly benefit
from it," said Bill Moor, Jr.,
Capital City Banc
Investments president. "I
immediately called our


local United,, Way. because
they are the natural fit. to
place it with an appropriate
person. Also years ago, my
grandfather (Frank Moor)
helped found our local
United Way."

Reader urges Americans to take back


our government and stop the bailouts


To the Editor:
Over two centuries ago,
a people decided they'd
had enough of corruption
and tyranny. With hard-
ened resolve and a forti-
tude seldom found in the
hearts of men today, they
resisted, they revolted,
they rebelled. They staged
a revolution that would
forge what was to become
the greatest nation in histo-
ry.
They reasoned that if
their actions amounted to
nothing more than suicide,
it would be more palatable
than subjection. They
sought to free themselves
from unfair taxation And
the oppressive hand of aris-
tocracy. They decided that
entitlement was an idea
best left in Europe and that
a person's fortune should
be won and lost by the
sweat of their brow, the
strength of their back and
the ingenuity of their mind.
And so was born the
United States of America.
So was born a government
empowered by the gov-
erned and accountable to
the same. So was born the
principles of equality. So
was born the American
dream.
So it was born and so it
was forgotten.
Our constitutional gov-
ernment has given way to
hundreds of special interest
groups represented by hun-
dreds more lobbyists who
make up the real con-
stituents of today's elected
officials. Our leaders now
preach and peddle equality
of results instead of equali-
ty of opportunity. Taking
indiscriminately from the
haves and giving to the


have nots has become all
the rage in D.C. Buzz
phrases like "leveling the
playing field" make the
concept less offensive
under the guise of "fair-
ness" when, in fact, fairness
has taken the last train out
of town.
So have the poor and
downtrodden increased
their standard of living with
this new velvety tongued
president? You tell me. I
think we've just padded the
pockets of a few people who
don't need their pockets
padded. I say we don't
need another handout. We
don't need another social-
ized program to care for an
increasing number of peo-
ple who simply refuse to
care for themselves. We rob
our posterity by providing
for people instead of hold-
ing them accountable for
providing for themselves.
The government doesn't
need to buyout banks or
automotive manufacturers.
We don't need to blast open
the public coffers with an
'atom bomb and compound
our national debt so that
our grandkids hdve no
chance of enjoying the free-
dom of not owing our hides
to China. We don't need to
wind up losing jobs and
opportunities for the effort.
We don't need to starve
small business and empow-
er lumbering dinosaur labor
unions. We don't need to
levy another tax on prod-
ucts, services, or income.
Oh wait! We already did all
that.
So let me ask you, how
has your life improved? Do
you have one thing to show
for it? Do you have one
more dime in your pocket?


Can you attribute a new job
or home to this strategy?
Start a new business lately?
Didn't think so.
Oh, but "you can't
change the economy
overnight." No...but if you
have the power to conjure a
TRILLION dollars into
existence, you can darn
sure ruin one overnight,
can't you?
If you ran your business
like the government runs
it's business, you'd either
have to be an .organized
criminal enterprise or you
would go bankrupt.
If America is truly inter-
ested in fair play and equal
opportunity for success,
then there must be equal
opportunity for failure.
That goes for Joe
Schmukatelli, Joe
Schmukatelli LLC, and Joe
Schmukatelli ,
Incorporated! You want
fairness? Exempt no one.
You can't have your cake
and eat it, too. If you run a
business and your business
fails, then you ought to
FAIL. If you employ thou-
sands of people and your
business fails, you should

able to tens of thousands of
shareholders and your busi-
ness fails; you should FAIL.
It is not the government's
job or place to bail out car
builders, investment firms,
or airliners. But, oh my,
what if a depression
ensues? Well, then, a
depression ensues. You
can't plug holes in a dam
forever. It will break. Build
all the levies you want, but
a river will find a way to
flood and, sure enough, that
flood will be worse than it
would have been had you

never built the levy.
Now, I'm no economist,
but I'm no fool either. I
know rising debt and reck-
less spending when I see it.
And I know crap when I
smell it. Don't believe me?
Well, get this: If the govern-
ment took just one half of
what it has spent every day
since Obama took office
and divided that among
every single American...not
just the tax payers...but
EVERY single citizen...
we'd each have about
$12,000 more in the bank,
and that's rounding down,
folks! Narrow that figure
down to just those of us
who actually pay taxes and
that figure swells to over
$26,000! Remember, that's
just HALF of what the fed-
eral government has spent
since Obama took office.
Still can't wrap your mind
around that much money?
Me neither. But we've got
to spend that money or
we'll all die! Well, pardon
me if I don't stand in line to
drink that Kool-Aid.
No, I'm not advocating
overthrowing the govern-
ment. But I AM advocating
that we take it back.
Fortunately, the framers of
our constitution provided
us a way to do so without
taking up arms. And, if
every person who regis-
tered to do it ACTUALLY
did it, we'd be much better
off.
So, believe the lie,
America, or pull your head
out' of the sand. The end
result is the same. There is
a cliff looming ahead. I'd
like to think I'm not just
some lemming willing to
follow the lead idiot off that
cliff. But, alas...I'm being
pushed! What will it take
for us to push back? A sim-
ple stroke of a pen.

Imagine if reading was
an unknown ability for you.
For many people, being
unable to read is an every-

there was a way for you to
help that parent or that

overcome such an embar-

BY BLOUNTSTOWN TIGER
HEAD COACH GREG JORDAN
Football is in the air! The Tigers kicked off fall two-a-
day practices on Monday, Aug. 10. We had 45 players
report from grades 9-12 to comprise the JV and varsity
Steams. We have two full weeks of practice with no
games. The third full week is game week for the varsity.
The.Tigers travel to Freeport on Friday, Aug. 28, for the
Kickoff Classic. The first home game will be week 1 of the
regular season vs. Sneads at7 p.m. at Bowles Field.
The Tigers look to rebound from an injury plagued 3-7
season last year. The coaching staff has a new look with.
three new faces on board. John Rodgers will help run the
defense, Ezra'Simpkins will coach the offensive and
defensive line and Kelly Lowrey will help with the quarter-
backs. A familiar face will be back on the sidelines this
year as Chaz Johns will be helping coach the offensive
line and be calling the plays for the JV team. Coach
Emory Horne is still recovering from back surgery and we
all wish him the best and a speedy recovery.
SThe first week of camp went well. The new players and
coaches are all getting to know each other and getting
comfortable with each other. A lot of learning took place
the first week, laying a good foundation to build on. All
the players and coaches are excited about the upcoming
season with the possibilities that lie ahead.
The Tigers are back in district 2, class 1A with West
Gadsden, Liberty County, Franklin County, Port St. Joe,
and Wewa. It's a tough six team district, but all teams are
on equal playing fields. All are rural public schools after
the same thing...a chance to play for a championship!
A few important dates to remember...the community
pep rally will be Tuesday, Aug. 25, at the BHS Auditorium
at 7 p.m. All fans are encouraged to attend to meet the
2009 Tigers and new coaches. The Future Tiger Camp
will be Saturday, Sept. 5, from 9 to 11:30 a.m. at
Bowles Field. Registration will run from 8 to 9 a.m. that
morning or register early at BHS front office.
Look forward to seeing all Tiger fans this upcoming
season. Go Tigers!!!!!

Parents & Students:
B lo u n t stow n
Elementary School faculty
and staff are excited about
the start of the 2009-2010
school year. We have been
busy all summer preparing
for the new year. 2008-
2009 was a very successful
year with the school earn-
Sing a grade of "A" from the
state and we are committed
to continuous improve-
ment. Your child and their
education is our top priori-
ty. Our goal is for every
child to reach their poten-
'tial and experience success.
A partnership between
home and school is essen-
tial for the best results. I
keep a quote that says
"People don't care how
much you know until they
know how much you care"
and we strive to provide an
atmosphere in which your
child knows they are cared
for, valued, and respected.
At Blountstown
Elementary School, we
teach far more than the
skills tested on the FCAT.
Research shbws that parent
involvement is high on the
list of factors contributing to
a student's success in
school. We strive to be a
friendly school and we look
forward developing a rela-
tionship with you and your
family.
We encourage you to be
involved in your child's
education and I look for-
ward to seeing you at our
Open House on Friday,
August 21st, from 8:00-
12:00. Please feel free to
contact or visit me anytime
during the year should have
a question or concern.

Thoughts

for Meditation
By
Paul F. Joyner,
Ph.D

Recently I read two articles I thought worth passing along
to you for your musing.
Many years ago in the central part of Africa a number of
tribes people heard the Gospel, received Jesus Christ and,
among other things, gave themselves to prayer. They met
often and, having no church building, selected a spot in the
jungle which was accessible to all. Footpaths to this place
began to be marked out clearly as people here and their
trudged from their village across the high grass and thick
vegetation several times a week, often once or twice a day.
When a convert seemed to be losing his early enthusiasm he
would be sold, "Brother, the grass is growing on your path."
Today we can ask the question, "Is your prayer path
showing a profusion of the growth of grass and weeds???"
Stanley Guess, a Christian business man in Houston,
Texas, told about his grandmother. She was a small
woman, but did everything she could to be a large person.
She wore gray clothes, because she'thought they made her
look larger.
:Years ago, one Sunday morning, she and her grandson
were walking to Sunday School. The grandson was about
six years old. They passed a man on crutches who was beg-
ging on the street, with his hat extended to the passersby.
Grandmother dropped a quarter in the hat. In parts of the
south a quarter is called "two-bits." The two walked on.
Then suddenly grandmother stopped talking and turning
around said, "Lets go back to that man."
Returning to the beggar, grandmother sternly said to him,
"Give me that quarter back." The man meekly obliged. Then
the grandmother gave the man a dollar bill with this com-
ment, "I just wanted you to know that I do not worship a two-
bit God."
.What kind of God do you worship??
