BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News EditorA former Calhoun County resident is facing several felony charges in three counties following an investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE). Angela Hall, 32, who left Blountstown for Houston, Texas, back in the summer of 2008, is being held in the Jackson County Jail, accused of two counts of bank fraud and five counts of cashing or depositing an item with intent to defraud. In addition, Calhoun County has an outstanding warrant for Hall on charges of two counts of criminal use of personal identification information and one count of violating the Florida Communications Fraud Act. She is also facing charges in Leon County for grand theft. According to one of two affidavits for arrest filed in Jackson County, SunTrust Bank took a loss of $1924.63 back in February 2008 after Hall wrote two worthless checks. She allegedly deposited a $1950 check Dec. 31, 2007, into a SunTrust account registered to her business. The check was written on her personal Regions Bank account. Two days later, she deposited a check written on a Bank of America account registered to her business in the amount of $2000. After making the two deposits, Hall withdrew $1100 from ATM machines and spent around $1128 in purchases over a seven day period. Problems arose when the Bank of America check was returned to SunTrust on Jan. 7, 2008, with a notation that the account was closed. The Regions check was returned for insufficient funds on Jan. 9, 2008. Investigation revealed the Regions account had a balance of $973 at the time Hall wrote the check to SunTrust and the Bank of America account had been closed since Dec. 3, 2007. In the second Jackson County case, SunTrust took another loss from Hall in the amount of $1919.39 for a series of bad checks deposited in her personal account in December 2007. According to FDLE, Hall appeared Dec. 12 at a WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2010 104th Year, No. 3 BLOUNTSTOWN, FLORIDA 32424 50 CENTS (Including Tax) TRAGEDYLocal man injured in fireBY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News EditorA Clarksville man is in critical condition at Shands Hospital following a house fire last week. Terry Chambers, 41, was at home when a grease fire erupted on the stove last Thursday afternoon. Firefighters managed to contain the blaze to the kitchen area of his famiily’s Chambers Road home. After the fire was extinguished, Chambers’ sister, Michelle Lytle, says she noticed her brother might need medical attention. “He was walking around, but I knew he didn’t look that great,” she remarks. Chambers was taken to Calhoun-Liberty Hospital, then airlifted to Shands where he is being treated for internal burns to his lungs, throat, and nasal passages.

They have dramatically changed an area that some ten years ago looked more like a tree farm than a residential setting. It is hard to believe, as one glances at the colorfully mulched beds of grasses, shrubs, and flowers, that this landscape is low maintenance. Aztec grasses, blooming crepe myrtle, azaleas and daylilies in season -all help make this a pleasing and well balanced setting. A variety of trees offer diversity in texture and height, and give further balance and flow in design. Grant and Regina find yard work and tending their garden not only relaxing, but fun and a way to "de stress". This is an active, energetic, and productive family unit. They contribute in many valuable ways to a community they grew up in, know well, appreciate, and love. Their presence in our town is much appreciated, and especially do we always enjoy the view as we ride orYard of the Month' award goes to Grant and Regina Williams Don’t miss GOAT DAY 2010 as the Blountstown Rotary Club presents the 24th annual festival Saturday, Oct. 16th, at Sam Atkins Park in Blountstown.

Two days later, she returned with a $2000 check written on the same account and deposited $1800, while getting $200 back in cash. Four days went by and she returned to the branch, this time with a $2000 check from her Bank of America business account. Two days later, she was back with a $2200 check written on the Bank of America account, depositing $2000 from that check into the SunTrust account. All four checks written over that eight day period were returned. The Regions account showed “insufficient funds” as the reason and the Bank of America account had been closed since Dec. 3. In Calhoun County, Hall is wanted for allegedly obtaining two credit cards via the internet using her eight-year-old daughter’s social security number. According to the arrest warrant, a federal grand jury subpoena was issued to Capital One and Bank of America recently for records on possible victims of identity theft by Hall. Records revealed Hall had applied for credit cards from both companies on April 2, 2008, using her daughter’s name and personal information, but changed the child’s birthdate to make it appear she was an adult. The Bank of America credit card account was closed in Jan. 2009 with $2556 owed. The Capital One account was closed in April 2009 with an unpaid balance of $825. A U.S. postal inspector and an FDLE agent went to Hall’s Texas home in February of this year to interview her about the credit cards. Hall admitted to using both her information and her daughter’s on one of the applications, but denied attempting to obtain credit in the child’s name. Three weeks later, investigators enlisted the help of Hall’s mother-in-law who placed a recored phone call to her and inquired if she had opened a credit card in her daughter’s name. Hall was recorded admitting she had opened one card in the child’s name and said she realized she had “messed up” her daughter’s credit. No details were available at press time on the Leon County warrant other than the fact the charges pending are for grand theft. Hall remains in custody at the Jackson County Jail without bond on a hold for Calhoun County.Hall case continued PFCRobert L. Thompson was honored at the VFWFamily Picnic Saturday. Thompson, US 34 910 133, enlisted in the U.S. Army at Camp Blanding, FL, January 5, 1944. He then traveled to Fort Jackson, SC, then to Fort McClellan, AL where he completed basic training. After basic training he traveled to Camp Pickett, VA, where he joined the 78th (Lightening Division) Infantry Division. Once the division completed their training, they traveled to Camp Kilmer, NJ. The division boarded a ship there for South Hampton, England. Later, the division crossed the English Channel and landed in France. Within a short period of time the division, arrived in Belgium and entered Germany in the vicinity of Aachen to begin combat operations. PFC Thompson was a member of Company A, 1st Battalion, 311th Inf Regt, 78th Inf. Div. when he was wounded in early March 1945 near the “dam” at a town named Schmidt from an exploding artillery shell. He was awarded the Purple Heart in accordance with GO #103, HQ, 78th Inf Div APO 7845 and was awarded the Combat Infantry Badge. After the capture of the “dam” the division continued to the east using the “dam” as a roadway. The division arrived at Ludendorf Bridge near the town of Remagen in time to use it for crossing the Rhine River. Thompson was one of the last men to cross before the bridge was blown up. The 78th Division continued to the east along the Sieg securing the left flank of the U.S. 1st Army. The division then swung to the north crossing the Seig River and, in about 11 days, the division consolidated a position vicinity of Wuppertal where they were located when the war ended. While on these combat operations, Lee unknowingly saved a childhood friend from a tank by destroying it with a bazooka. Later, they determined they had actually communicated during this action without the other knowing who he was talking with. His friend was Lewis Fenn, assigned to another Regt. Before the war Lu (Lewis) had a band in Orange, Florida, named “Lu and the Florida River Ramblers” including Lu, Lee, Willard, Delois, Darcie Mae, and fillers as needed.

To the Editor: We are most grateful to God and the prayers of people in the community, that the phone call that we received on 09/08/10 was that our youngest daughter was found safe. But we all know that it very well could have been a different outcome. We commend the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Department, Bay County Sheriff’s Department and Vanessa Dellahay (Florida Sheriff’s Youth Ranch) from the beginning of everything, all the way to bringing her home. THANK YOU, Vanessa Dellahay (Florida Youth Ranch) and Lt. Adam Terry, and Major Roman Wood for being with us on this from the beginning, never hesitating to take our call (even the days you were off duty), always making us feel that resolving the situation was priority and knowing that you were going to great links to do what had to be done. The same goes for Sheriff David Tatum, Tony Shoemake (Truancy Officer), Sgt. Nichols, and last but not least, the dispatchers who have constantly listened to our concerns and pleas for help with our daughter and got the right people on the job. Thank you, Sheriff David Tatum and Sheriff Frank McKeithen, who took call after call regarding this situation. Enough can not be said for the entire staff of the Calhoun County and Bay County Sheriff’s Department for the way these two counties worked together to bring our daughter home safely. Thank You, Regina (Anchorage Childrens Home)-Panama City, for checking and recognizing that she was a runaway, as well as the time spent with her until I could get there. We are sure that there were other staff involved and we want you to know that we appreciate every individual that put forth any effort to bring her home. We can not believe the man hours that were spent during these days, from 09/03/10 to 09/08/10 trying to find our child, and prior to that another runaway day on 07/28/10 when you brought her home within hours, and began the process of getting her an interview and later learning that she had been accepted into the Florida Sheriff’s Ranch and was on the waiting list before her last run on 09/03/10. THANK YOU, Judge Grover, for being a judge that made it clear that he wanted to hear both sides of the story, recognizing what was going on when an over zealous case worker admittedly decided to take my child from our home with NO PROBABLE CAUSE because we refused her services. Much THANKS to your staff as well. While we still have hurdles to go through, including, finding and prosecuting the person who picked her up from her grandfather’s, as well as prosecuting the person that interfered with us finding her sooner than we did, we THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts! However, there are a few things that a parent is still up against and hopes to find answers to: • What is a parent to do when it is not against the law to runaway? • What is the law to do when they have no options but to return the child continuously back to the parent? • What is the parent toThe County Record, SEPTEMBER 15, 2010, P P a a g g e e 6 6 COUNTRY LUNCH SERVED DAILY, 10:30 A.M.

End of Summer Clearance Sale Continues New Fall Gift Items Arriving Daily L L E E T T T T E E R R S S T T O O T T H H E E E E D D I I T T O O R RFamily thankful to those who helped after daughter's wreckLetter to the Editor, On Saturday, September 4th, while sitting home with my 10 year old daughter Kenzie, I received the phone call that is every parent's nightmare. My 16 year old daughter Megan lost control of our Chevy Trailblazer which resulted in the total loss of the vehicle. We were blessed in the fact that the call was from Megan telling me that she, and her 3 other passengers, were ok. On arriving at the scene, and seeing the condition of the Trailblazer, I was very thankful to the Lord that all 4 teenagers were able to walk away from the crash with only 2 of them receiving minor injuries. I want to take this time to thank the FHP Trooper P.S. Spaziante. He handled himself very professionally and he very gently and thoughtfully guided my daughter through this traumatic ordeal. I also want to thank the Sheriff Deputy (whom I can't remember his name) that was the first to arrive on the scene. He was very professional and thoughtful with handling of this ordeal. My wife (Jan) and I also want to thank all the other professionals that helped with this crash. We would also like to thank all the family and friends that arrived at the scene and who helped us with this ordeal. Most of all we would like to thank the Lord Jesus for keeping all of our kids safe and allowing all to walk away from this crash. We can't thank you enough, Duane and Jan Brown The Blountstown Police Department will be a host of the National Take Back Initiative set for Saturday, Sept. 25.

While the principles have remained constant, the activities and projects have kept pace with the times to appeal to a new generation of youth. 4-H is not just a program for farm kids, but for everyone. It has been a tradition in Calhoun County for nearly 100 years, and we are working hard continue that tradition for our youth. During this 4-H year, we are trying to expand our program by adding two new clubs. Ideas for clubs include, gardening, arts and crafts, sewing, needle work, scrapbooking, jewelry making, sports and recreation, gardening, culinary arts, entomology, varied interests, etc. As you can see, the sky is the limit! In order to reach our goal, we need volunteer leaders for these clubs. Clubs typically meet at least once a month and have between six and fifteen youth. You don’t have to be an expert to lead a club! Additionally, we are always looking for youth and adult volunteers to help our club leaders, teach classes or workshops, organize events, help raise funds, etc. If you are interested in volunteering with Calhoun County 4-H, please contact Whitney Cherry at the Calhoun County Extension Office.

In the first quarter, Jesse Hall scored on the first play from the scrimmage on a 70 yard run. Hunter Jordan got the 2 point conversion to make it 8-0. Jordan then scored on a QB sneak and ran in the 2 point conversion for a 16-0 lead. On the last play of the half, Chipley threw a pass and it was intercepted by Jordan and returned 50 yards for a TD. Ryan Hathcox ran in the 2 point conversion for a 24-0 lead and the final score. The JV Tigers had good blocking all night up front with Hank Girardot, Jay Williams, CJ Hiers, Tommy Futch and Cole Taylor. Running backs Marquel Comer, Ryan Hathcox and Jesse Hall each had big plays on the night. The defense played great, not allowing Chipley in the end zone all night. Next up was Liberty County Thursday, Sept. 9 with BHS celebrating a 208 win. In the first quarter, Jordan threw an 18 yard touchdown pass to Tanner Peacock. The two point conversion failed, putting the score at 6-0. In the second quarter, Jesse Hall had a six yard touchdown run.

We are sitting at 1-0 on the year with a tough Chipley team coming to town this week. Chipley is coming off a very impressive 42-0 win over Wewa. Our coaches scouted several area opponents during our open week. I went to the Chipley game to see our next two opponents playing each other. Chipley has a very talented football team with excellent skill players and better than average sized lineman. Chipley is 1-1 on the year, losing to Vernon week one then defeating Wewa last week. We had a good week of practice during our open week in preparation for our upcoming opponents. The best thing we may have done last week was staying healthy for another week. I would like to take a moment to thank everyone that participated in our rib sale on Friday. A big thanks to Calhoun Corrections and the Blountstown Police Dept. for the use of the cookers. A big thanks to Major Rodney Smith for all his help with the cooking. Hope all the ribs were good and everyone enjoyed them. Don't forget to support the Tiger Booster Club on game night with their pre game meals that are being prepared fresh that afternoon. Quick note on our JV football team. They are now 2-0 on the year with impressive wins over Chipley 24-0 and Liberty County 20-8. This week they also play at home against Sneads Thursday at 6:00. Come out and support the JV Tigers as they try to improve to 3-0 on the season. This will be the first of three straight home games to finish out the JV season. Hope to see you Thursday and Friday at Bowles Field! GO TIGERS!!! Meet the Tiger Cross Country TeamBlountstown High School is pleased to introduce the Tiger Cross Country Team.

Many Americans are not making healthy choices these days, so the students in Altha's Culinary classes are all learning about healthy meal compositions. This year Cats' Cuisine is focusing on keeping their meals under five hundred calories (excluding dessert). The meals will also have to meet the requirement of having to be made up of no less than thirty percent of fat. While the meals will lack calories, they will, however, not lack flavor or presentation. All meals chosen will be appealing and eye catching. Also, all menus will feature calorie counts for the main course and the dessert. Please come and experience the new and improved Cats Cuisine. The first meal will be presented on September 23. There will be two seatings for this meal one will be at 11:30 A.M., and another will occur at 12:30 P.M. the same day. Everyone is encouraged to RSVP by Tuesday, September 21, but walk ins will not be turned away. To contact them you may reach Mrs. Granger by telephone 850-762-3121 or by the fax number 850762-9502. The cost is $6 per person. The menu is as follows: Crispy Stuffed Chicken Breast Garlic Potato/ Cauliflower Mash Salad w/ Orange Vinaigrette Dressing Whole Wheat Yeast Roll (465 Calories for all of the above) Dessert: Strawberry Roulade (166 Cal.) Sweet and Un-sweet Tea Altha Teachers receive Walmart Teacher Rewards On average, teachers spend more than $500 a year out of their own pockets for classroom supplies, according to the American Federation of Teachers.

do when the child is willing to go to any length to rebel, including calling DCFS and making false accusations on the biological parent or step-parent? • What is a parent to do when they’ve found a program they can afford and that would benefit the child and child is accepted, but refuses to go? • Why isn’t there court ordered consequences like (Community Service) for a child who runs away out of rebellion and no just cause? Not having things in place to address these issues leaves a parent who can not afford an unrealistic fee for involuntary placement of a child with: •Bringing the child home and subjecting a family member or someone to false accusations of abuse; • sending the child to live with another family member or another family Both options open the door for only more rebellion and sends the message that the child is the one with the power and authority, not the Law and not the Parent. Many man-hours are used up, family members are accused falsely, and tax payers dollars are spent, for a rebellious child who did not get their way at home. Just as we must be pro-active in preventing and addressing real child abuse issues, we must be just as pro-active in preserving and protecting against the reversal of roles in the parent-child relationship. Our world is going to hell in a hand basket because of the lack of modeling and teaching of respect for authority. Many of our services that call themselves family services need to change their name; because many times they are no true service to the family, but in-fact a disservice, trying to reverse the roles of the parent child relationship that God designed. When the authoritative role is reversed in families to something that God did not design……the authoritative role will be reversed in the community and throughout the nation….leading to none other, but a rebellious generation of people, and ultimately the destruction of this world. IT IS TIME WE TAKE A STAND AND BE RESPONSIBLE FOR HAVING AND IMPLEMENTING LAWS THAT BRING CHILDREN UP TO KNOW THAT RESPECT FOR AUTHORITY IS NOT OPTIONAL…AT HOME OR OUTSIDE OF THE HOME.

A change that will raise the bar on the level of service a family can experience from a funeral home. Weve been planning this for a long time. We now have new visitation rooms, and a special gathering place where families can have a meal before or after the funeral service. The final phase of the renovation will include a new chapel that will seat 200+ and media streaming for family members that are unable to attend the funeral service. The final phase should be finished around the end of October. Watch for our Open House announcement.

The County Record, SEPTEMBER 15, 2010, Page 11 No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the beginning of our work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf and that includes keeping you informed. Restoring Gulf Communities We cant undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet. We have been working with impacted communities since day one. Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is to listen to peoples needs and frustrations and “nd ways to help. We have 19 community centers and teams in four states, listening and helping. Restoring The Economy BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and restaurant owners, helping to make them whole. More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have already gone to people affected by the spill. We have committed a $20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate claims, including lost incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this will be paid by taxpayers. BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism recover and bring people back to the Gulf beaches. Restoring The Environment Were going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we “nd it. Teams will remain in place for as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast. And weve dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scienti“c experts on the impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage. Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support over 10,000 jobs in the region and people here are our neighbors. We know we havent always been perfect, but we will be here until the oil is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal. We will do everything we can to make this right. I was born in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have to restore the Gulf communities for the shrimpers, “shermen, hotel and restaurant owners who live and work here.

Former resident facing




charges in three counties


BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor .
A former Calhoun
County resident is facing
several felony charges in
three counties following an
investigation by the
Florida Department of
Law Enforcement
* (FDLE).
Angela Hall, 32, who
left Blountstown for
Houston, Texas, back in
the summer of 2008, is
being held in the Jackson
County Jail, accused of two
.counts of bank fraud and
five counts of cashing or
depositing an item with


intent to defraud.
In addition, Calhoun
County has an outstanding
warrant for Hall on
charges of twd counts of
criminal use of personal
identification information
and one count of violating
the Florida
Communications Fraud
Act. She 'is also facing
charges in Leon County for
grand theft.
According to one of two
affidavits for arrest filed in
Jackson County, SunTrust
.Bank took a loss of
$1924.63 back in
February 2008 after Hall
wrote two worthless

ANGELA HALL
checks. She allegedly
" deposited a $1950 check
Dec. 31, 2007, into a
SunTrust account regis-
tered to her business. The
check Was 'written on her
personal Regions Bank


account. Two days later,
she deposited a check writ-
ten on a Bank of America
account registered to her
business in the amount of
$2000.
After making the two
deposits, Hall withdrew
$1100 from ATM
machines and spent
around $1128 in purchases
over'a seven day period.
Problems arose when the
Bank of America check'
was returned to SunTrust
on Jan. 7, 2008, with a
notatiQn that the account
was closed. The Regions
check was returned for
insufficient funds on Jan. 9,

'Yard of the Month' award goes


to Grant and Regina Williams


With an abundance of
hlard work and love, Regina
and Grant Williams have
done a remarkable job with
their front yard. They have
dramatically changed an
area that some ten years
ago looked more like a tree
farm than a residential set-
ting.
It is hard to believe, as
one glances at the colorfully
Srmulched beds of grasses,


shrubs, and flowers, that
this landscape is low main-
tenance. Aztec grasses,
blooming crepe myrtle,
azaleas and daylilies in sea-
son -- all help make this a
pleasing and well balanced
setting. A variety of trees
offer diversity in texture
and height, and give further
balance and flow in design.
Grant and Regina find
yard work and tending


their garden not only relax-
ing, but fun and a way to
"de stress". This is an
active, energetic, and pro-
ductive family unit. They
contribute in many valu-
able ways to a community
they grew up in, know well,
appreciate, and love. Their
presence in our town is
much appreciated, and
especially do we always
enjoy the view as we ride or

VFW honors PFC Thompson

at Saturday's family picnic


PFC Robert L.
Thompson was honored at
the VFW Family Picnic
Saturday.
Thompson, US 34 910
133, enlisted in the U.S.
Army at Camp Blanding,
FL, January 5, 1944. He
then traveled to Fort
Jackson, SC, then to Fort
McClellan, AL where he
completed basic training.
After basic training he trav-
eled to Camp Pickett, VA,
where he joined the 78th
(Lightening Division)
Infantry Division. Once the
division completed their
training, they traveled to
Camp Kilmer, NJ.
The division boarded .a
ship there f6or South
Hampton, England. Later,
the division crossed the
English Channel and land-
ed in France. Within a short
period of time the division,
arrived in Belgium and
entered Germany in the
vicinity of Aachen to begin
combat operations.
PFC Thompson was a
member of Company A, 1st
Battalion, 311th Inf Regt,
78th Inf. Div. when he was
wounded in early March
1945 near the "dam" at a
town named Schmidt from
an exploding artillery shell.
He was awarded the
Purple Heart in accordance
with GO #103, HQ, 78th
Inf Div APO 7845 and was
awarded the Combat
Infantry Badge.


After the capture of the
"dam" the division contin-
ued to the east using the
"dam" as a roadway. The
division arrived at
Ludendorf Bridge near the
town of Remagen in time to
use it for crossing the Rhine
River.

Thompson was one of
the last men to cross before
the bridge was blown up.
The 78th Division contin-
ued to the east along the
Sieg securing the left flank
of the U.S. 1st Army. The
division then swung to the
north crossing the Seig
River and, in about 11
days, the division conpoli-
'dated -position vicinity of
Wuppertdl where they
were located when the war
ended.
While on these combat
operations, Lee unknow-
ingly saved a childhood
friend from a tank by
destroying it with a
bazooka. Later, they deter-
mined they had actually
communicated during this
action without the other
knowing who he was talking
with. His friend was Lewis
Fenn, assigned to another
Regt. Before the war Lu
(Lewis) had a band in

"Lu and the Florida River

Hall case continued


SunTrust Bank branch with
an $1800 check from her
Regions Bank business
account, depositing $1500
and getting $300 'back -in
cash. Two days later, she
returned with a $2000
check written on the same
account and deposited
$1800, while getting $200
back in cash. Four days
went by and she returned
to the branch, this time
with a $2000 check from
her Bank of America busi-
ness account. Two days
later, she was back with a
$2200 check written on the
Bank of America account,
depositing $2000 from that
check into the SunTrust
account.
All four checks written
over that eight day period
were returned. The
Regions account showed
"insufficient funds" as the
reason and the Bank of
America account had been
closed since Dec. 3.
In Calhoun County, Hall
is wanted for allegedly
obtaining two credit cards
via the internet using her
eight-year-old daughter's
social security number.
According to the arrest
warrant, a federal grand
jury subpoena was issued to
Capital One and Bank of
America recently for
records on possible victims
of identity theft by Hall.
Records revealed Hall had
applied for credit cards
from both companies on


April 2, 2008, using her
daughter's name and per-
sonal information, but
changed the child's birth-
date to make it appear she
was an adult.
The Bank of America
credit card account was
closed in Jan. 2009 with
$2556 owed. The Capital
'One account was closed in
April 2009 with an unpaid
balance of $825.
A U.S. postal inspector
and an FDLE agent went
to Hall's Texas home in
February of this year to
interview her about the
credit cards. Hall admitted
to using both her informa-
tion and her daughter's on
one of the applications, but
denied attempting to obtain
credit in the child's name.
Three weeks later,
investigators enlisted the
help of Hall's mother-in-law
who placed a record phone
call to her and inquired if
she had opened a credit
card in her daughter's
name. Hall was recorded
admitting she had opened
one card in the child's name
and said she realized she
had "messed up" her
daughter's credit.
No details were avail-
able at press time on the
Leon County warrant other
than the fact the charges
pending are for grand theft.
Hall remains in custody
at the Jackson County Jail
without bond on a hold for
Calhoun County.

4-H is a "learn-by-
doing" educational pro-
gram for youth ages 5-18.
While the principles have
remained constant, the
activities and projects have
kept pace with the times to
appeal to a new generation
of youth.
4-H is not just a pro-
gram for farm kids, but for
everyone. It has been a
tradition in Calhoun
County for nearly 100
years, and we are working
hard continue that tradition
for our youth. During this
4-H year, we are trying to


expand our program by
adding two new clubs.
Ideas for clubs include, gar-
dening, arts and crafts,
sewing, needle work, scrap-
booking, jewelry making,
sports and recreation, gar-
dening, culinary arts, ento-
mology, varied interests,
etc.
As you can see, the sky
is the limit! In order to,
reach our goal, we need
volunteer leaders for these
clubs. Clubs typically meet
at least once a month and
have between six and .fif-
teen youth. You don't have


to be an expert to lead a
club! Additionally, we are
always looking for youth
and adult volunteers to
help our club leaders, teach
classes or workshops,
organize events, help raise
funds, etc.

Family thankful to those who


helped after daughter's wreck


Letter to the Editor,
On Saturday,
September 4th, while sit-
ting home with my 10 year
old daughter Kenzie, I
received the phone call that
, is every parent's night-
mare. My 16 year old
daughter Megan lost con-
trol of our Chevy
Trailblazer which resulted
in the total loss of the vehi-
cle. We were blessed in the
fact that the call was from
'Megan telling me that she,
and her 3 other passengers,
were ok.
On arriving at the scene,
and seeing the condition of


the Trailblazer, I was yery
thankful to the Lord that
all 4 teenagers were able to
walk away from the crash'
with only 2 of them receiv-
ing minor injuries. I want to
take this timtie to thank the
FHP Trooper PS.
Spaziante. He handled
himself very professionally
and he very gently and
thoughtfully guided my
daughter through this trau-
matic ordeal. I also want to
thank the Sheriff Deputy
(whom I can't remember
his name) that was the first
to arrive on the scene. He
was very professional and


thoughtful with handling of
this ordeal. My wife (Jan)
and I also want to thank all
the other professionals that
helped with this crash.
We .would also like to
thank all the family and
friends that arrived at the
scene and who helped us
with this ordeal. Most of
all we would like to thank
the Lord Jesus for keeping
all of our kids safe and
allowing all to walk away
from this crash.

We can't thank you
enough,
Duane and Jan Brown


Parents grateful for help with


their daughter's safe return


To the Editor:
We are most grateful to
God and the prayers of
people in the community,
' that the phone call that we
received on 09/08/10 was
that our youngest daughter
was found safe. But we all
know that it very well could
have been a different out-
come.
We commend the
Calhoun County Sheriff's
Department, Bay County
Sheriff's Department and
Vanessa Dellahay (Florida
Sheriff's Youth Ranch)
from the beginning of
everything, all the way to
bringing her home.
THANK YOU, Vanessa
Dellahay (Florida Youth
Ranch) and Lt. Adam
Terry, and Major Roman
Wood for being with us on
this from the beginning,
never hesitating to take our
call (even the days you
were off duty), always
making us feel that resolv-
ing the situation was priori-
ty and. knowing, that you
were going to great links to
do what had to be done.
The same goes for Sheriff
David Tatum, Tony
Shoemake (Truancy
Officer), Sgt. Nichols, and
last but not least, the dis-
patchers who have con-
stantly listened to our con-
cerns and pleas for help
with our daughter and got
the right people on the job.
Thank you, Sheriff
David Tatum and Sheriff
Frank McKeithen, who
took call after call regard-
ing this situation. Enough
can not be said for the
entire staff of the Calhoun
County and Bay County
Sheriff's Department for
the way these two counties
worked together to bring


. our daughter home safely.
Thank You, Regina
(Anchorage Childrens
Home)-Panama City, for
checking and recognizing
that she was a runaway, as
well as the time spent with
her until I could get there.
We are sure that 'there
were other staff involved
and we want you to know
that we appreciate every
individual that put forth
any effort to bring her
home. We can not believe
the man hours that were
spent during these days,
from 09/03/10 to 09/08/10
trying to find our child, and
prior to that another run-
away day on 07/28/10
when you brought her
home within hours, and
began the process of getting
her an interview and later
learning that she had been
accepted into the Florida
Sheriff's Ranch and was on
the waiting list before her
last run on 09/03/10.
THANK YOU, Judge
Grover, for being a judge
that made it clear that he
wanted to hear both sides
of the story,' recognizing
what was going on when an
over zealous case worker
admittedly decided to take
my child from our home
with NO PROBABLE
CAUSE because we
refused her services. Much
THANKS to your staff as
well.
While we still have hur-
dles to go through, includ-
ing, finding and prosecuting
the person who picked her
up from her grandfather's,
as well as prosecuting the
person that interfered with
us finding her sooner than
we did, we THANK YOU
from the bottom of our
hearts!


However, there are a
few things that a parent is
still up against and hopes to
find answers to:
What is a parent to do
when it is not against the
law to runaway?
What is the law to do
when they have no options
but to return the child con-
tinuously back to the par-
ent?
What is the parent to

BY BLOUNTSTOWN TIGER A d
HEAD COACH GREG JORDAN ..

Tigers to host Chipley
The varsity Tigers had our open week this past Friday.
We are sitting at 1-0 on the year with a tough Chipley
team coming to town this week.
Chipley is coming off a very impressive 42-0 win over
Wewa. Our coaches scouted several area opponents during
our open week. I went to the Chipley game to see our next
two opponents playing each other. Chipley has a very tal-
ented football team with excellent skill players and better
than average sized lineman. Chipley is 1-1 on the year, los-
ing to ~prnon week one then defeating Wewa last week.
We had a good week of practice during our open week
in preparation for our upcoming opponents. The best thing
we may have done last week was staying healthy for
another week.
I would like to take a moment to thank everyone that
participated in our rib sale on Friday. A big thanks to
Calhoun Corrections and the Blountstown Police Dept. for
the use of the cookers. A big thanks to Major Rodney
Smith for all his help with the cooking. Hope all the ribs
were good and everyone enjoyed them. Don't forget to sup-
port the Tiger Booster Club on game night with their pre
game meals that are being prepared fresh that afternoon.
Quick note on our JV football team. They are now 2-0
on the year with impressive wins over Chipley 24-0 and
Liberty County 20-8. This week they also play at home
against Sneads Thursday at 6:00. Come out and support
the JV Tigers as they try to improve to 3-0 on the season.
This will. be the first of three straight home games to finish
out the JV season. Hope to see you Thursday and Friday
at Bowles Field! GO TIGERS!!!

The Blountstown J.V.
Tiger football team is off to
a great start, opening with
wins over Chipley and
Liberty County.
The Tigers traveled to
Chipley on Thursday, Sept.
2, and returned with a 24-
0 win.
In the first quarter, Jesse
Hall scored on the first play
from the scrimmage on a 70
yard run. Hunter Jordan
got the 2 point conversion
to make it 8-0. Jordan then
scored on a QB sneak and
ran in the 2 point conver-
sion for a 16-0 lead.
On the last play of the.
half, Chipley threw a pass
and it was intercepted by
Jordan and returned 50
yards for a TD. Ryan
Hathcox ran in the 2 point
conversion for a 24-0 lead
and the final score.
The JV Tigers had good
blocking all night up front
with Hank Girardot, Jay
Williams, CJ .Hiers,
Tommy Futch and Cole
Taylor. Running backs
Marquel Comer, Ryan
Hathcox and Jesse Hall
each had big plays on the
night. The defense played
great, not allowing Chipley
in the end zone all night.
Next up was Liberty
County Thursday, Sept. 9
with BHS celebrating a 20-
8 win.
In the first quarter,
Jordan threw an 18 yard
touchdown pass to Tanner

Cats' Cuisine offers healthy menu


A Healthy Makeover
For Cats Cuisine
By Olivia Edenfield
Cats' cuisine has always
excelled in presenting deli-
cious meals, but with
today's growing health con-
cerns they have decided to
jump on the bandwagon
and make healthier meals.
Many Americans are
not making healthy choices
these days, so the students
in Altha's Culinary classes
are all learning about
healthy meal compositions.
This 'year Cats' Cuisine is
focusing on keeping their
meals under five hundred
calories (excluding dessert).
The meals will also have to
meet the requirement of
having to be made up of no
less than thirty percent of
fat. While the meals will
lack calories, they will,
however, not lack flavor or
presentation. All meals
chosen will be appealing
and eye catching. Also, all
menus will feature calorie
counts for the main course
and the dessert. Please
come and experience the
new and improved Cats
Cuisine.
The. first meal will be
presented on September
23. There will be two seat-
ings for this meal one will
be at 11:30 A.M., and
another will occur at 12:30
P.M. the same day.
Everyone is encouraged to
RSVP by Tuesday,
September 21, but walk
ins will not be turned away.
To contact them you may
reach Mrs. Granger by
telephone 850-762-3121 or
by the fax number 850-
762-9502. The cost is $6
per person.
The menu is as follows:
Crispy Stuffed Chicken
Breast
Garlic Potato/
Cauliflower Mash
Salad w/ Orange
Vinaigrette
Dressing
Whole Wheat Yeast Roll
(465 Calories for all of
the above)
Dessert: Strawberry
Roulade
(166 Cal.)
Sweet and Un-sweet
Tea

Altha Teachers
receive Walmart
Teacher Rewards
On average, teachers
spend more than $500 a
year out of their own pock-


ets for classroom supplies,
according to the American
Federation of Teachers. To
help offset rising expenses
for classroom supplies,
Walmart, Sam's Club and
the Walmart Foundation
have joined together to
launch Teacher Rewards, a
new program that is provid-
ing more than $4 million to
40,000 teachers across the
U.S.
Focusing on schools
whose needs are greatest,
each participating location
selects one local kinder-
garten through eighth grade
school to take part. This
year Altha School was
selected. Thursday,
September 9, representa-
tives from our local
Walmart were on campus
to give $100 gift cards to 10
lucky teachers. The win-
ners drawn were Rhonda
Price, 2nd grade; Cindy
Alday, 2nd grade; Winifred
Waldorff, media specialist;
Laura Sullivan, elementary
ESE; Jessica Olson, 1st
grade; Charmian Register,
4th grade; LeAnna Hall,

matics; Cathy Sumner,

Teacher extends appreciation

to. Red Level Masonic Lodge
The Red Level Free Masonic Lodge of Altha went
above and beyond in supporting my third grade classroom.
They provided many of the school supplies that I couldn't
afford at this costly time of year. I could not have started
the year off on a good note without the support from this
organization. My appreciation goes beyond the words
printed here today. Thank You for all the support this fine
organization has provided me and my third grade class-
room at Riverside Elementary.
Sincerely, Holly Nichols


Help our school receive
free equipment and you
could win free groceries and
a chance to win an IPOD
Shuffle.

speak to the Outdoor
Education classes last
Tuesday, September 7th
.Outdoor Ed has been
studying Orienteering
which test the skills of map
reading and Mr. Stone's

in this area proved to be
very educational! Students
learned about the
American history of map-
ping dating back to Thomas
Jefferson's era and how
Calhoun County found its
place on the survey maps.
They also studied local
maps, becoming familiar
with reading a survey map
and learning the impor-
tance and the responsibili-
ties of the Property
Appraiser. Coach Greg
Jordan, the teacher for
Outdoor Ed, and the stu-
dents would like to thank
Mr. Stone for taking the
time to come and visit their
class.

In a business where things
seemingly stay the same, a
change has taken place. A
change that will raise the bar
on the level of service a
family can experience from a
funeral home.
We've been planning this
for a long time. We now have
new visitation rooms, and a
special gathering place where
fTmilies can have a meal
before or after the funeral
service.
The final phase of the
renovation will include a new
chapel that will seat 200+ and
media streaming for family
members that are unable to
attend the funeral service.
The final phase should be
finished around the end of
October. Watch for our Open

Restoration

I was born in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have
to restore the Gulf communities for the shrimpers, fishermen,
hotel and restaurant owners who live and work here.
Iris Cross, BP Community Outreach


No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the
beginning of our work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup
in the Gulf and that includes keeping you informed.

Restoring Gulf Communities
We'can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet.
We have been working with impacted communities since day one.

Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is
to listen to people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have
19 community centers and teams in four states, listening and helping.

Restoring The Economy
BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and
restaurant owners, helping to make them whole.

More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have
already gone to people affected by the spill. We have committed a
$20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate claims, including lost
incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this
will be paid by taxpayers.

BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism
recover and bring people back to the Gulf beaches.

Restoring The Environment
We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we find it. Teams
will remain in place for as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast.

And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific
experts on the impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage.

Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support
over 10,000 jobs in the region and people here are our neighbors. We
know we haven't always been perfect, but we will be here until the oil
is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal. We will do
everything we can to make this right.
