A $91,000 bid for paving the roads is on the table City Manager James Woods noted the city owns the roads and stormwater facility and is responsible. Councilman David Blair stated the city’s code requires developers to be responsible for all infrastructure. A lengthy discussion ensued. The matter was tabled pending more research. A severance pay package for the city manager has been proposed by Mayor Winston Deason. The mayor stated it should already have been in place. The package is estimated at $42,000 with benefits. A proposed contract is being drafted.

It was noted that C.L. Capps, Jr. had failed to show up for a pre-trial conference in a grand theft and dealing in stolen property case and a warrant had been issued for his arrest. That part was correct. However, the article also stated jury selection was cancelled Monday after Capps failed to show. It was later learned that the trial was actually postponed when Capps didn’t appear at pre-trial. Capps reportedly called the Clerk’s Office and said he forgot about the pre-trial hearing.

The County Record, SEPTEMBER 22, 2010, P P a a g g e e 2 2 Congratulations! Leann Summers Blountstown Health & Rehab Center Employee of the Quarter Leann Summers is an Occupational Therapist at BHRC and has been on our staff for four years. She is compassionate, knowledgeable, hardworking and a great asset to our facility. 16690 SW Chipola Road, Blountstown, Florida  850-674-4311 BY BOB ELLIOTT TORONTO SUN This story was reprinted with permission from the Toronto Sun. Interviewed for the feature was Altha native Robbie Fleck, who now resides in Bristol and played baseball with Jose Bautista at Chipola College. He was hoping to head to Florida in the fall of 1999. Hoping to get on a plane, with a $300,000 US signing bonus from the Cincinnati Reds, and fly from Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic to training camp in Sarasota, Fla. It wasn’t one of those “missed him by $5,000” stories scouts talk about. Carl Linder was buying the Reds from Marge Schott and the club simply said no to the expenditure. So, Jose Bautista took a different path on his way to the majors. He still boarded a Florida-bound plane, but chose to enroll late at Chipola College, a junior college powerhouse in Marianna, Fla. Bautista arrived on campus and walked into a meeting with eight or 10 players, including catcher Robbie Fleck. “We turn around and here is this skinny kid, with big ears, carrying his cleats in a plastic bag,” remembered Fleck, now a life insurance agent in Marianna. This is how Day 1 in America began for the 18year-old Latin: “We’re a bunch of country rednecks we say: ‘Did you just get off the boat?’ laughing, picking on the new guy,” Fleck said. Later, the players headed to the field. “Someone hits a ball to straightaway centre, Jose catches it over his shoulder, plants his foot two feet from the fence — 385 (feet) away — turns and throws a laser. We were shocked.” And then Bautista had his turn in the batting cage. “Our gym is beyond the left-centre field fence,” Fleck said. “They pump up an inside fastball on him, it landed in the parking lot and hit the gym on the bounce ... about 460 feet, like 90% of his bombs this year. “We quit messing with him. We knew he was legit. This was before we knew his character or work ethic.” Later that year, over American Thanksgiving, Fleck invited Bautista and five other players to his house in nearby Altha (pop. 500), a zero stoplight town with two blinking caution lights. “They got to experience some good Southern food, better than staying at the dorm and going to Wendy’s. He was very polite, well mannered.” Good Southern food is an understatement. The young teammates feasted on turkey and dressing, ham, homemade mac & cheese, green beans, fresh cream corn, collard greens, chicken and dumplings, potato salad, fresh field peas, sweet potato souffl and fried corn bread. Not to mention homemade pecan pie and 12-layer chocolate cake for desert. All made by Fleck’s mother, Janet. “He was better than the rest of us,” Fleck said. “You have to respect a guy, regardless how much better he was, he put in the time.” Fleck was at Tropicana Field to see his pal and the Jays last month. Sometimes they talk as often as every other day, but not always about ball. Fleck will tell his pal how his son Bryson, 4, said: “Daddy, your friend is on TV again.” “We talk about life ... my kids — one night he explained his swing to me,” said Fleck. While Bautista leads the American League in homers, Fleck doesn’t even lead the Big Bend adult league. He has, however, raised his average 35 points playing for the Liberty County Diamond Dawgs, adding “I’m only carrying 50-60 extra pounds, since I blew my arm out in college.” Once Bautista earned the respect of his fellow Chipola Indians that first practice a nickname soon followed. Jordan Keller of Melville, Sask., began calling him ‘Hoser’ after the “second time he threw me out from right field trying to score from second in an intra-squad game” in 1999. “All the Canadian players called me that,” Bautista said after a recent Jays game. Outfielder Eric Bernier of Laval, Que., Ivan Naccarata of Longueil, Que., and Montreal infielder Russell Martin were recruited by coach Jeff Johnson and played with Bautista in 2000. Bautista hit .289 with 15 doubles, seven homers and 25 RBIs for the 2000 Chipola Indians and was drafted in the 20th round by Pittsburgh Pirates. Unable to reach an agreement, Bautista returned to school. Johnson recalls Chipola needing to win “something silly like eight of our final 10” in 2001 and trailing Pensecola by two runs one day. “They have a guy on third, one out, off the bat it looks like the ball is over Jose’s head, it’s hit that good,” Johnson says. “The runner breaks from third. Jose catches it over the his shoulder 10 feet from the fence. The runner goes back, tags and heads home. Jose throws him out. “We came back to win the game, make the playoffs.” Johnson also remembers Bautista hitting a ball so hard off the top of the Chipola 10-foot chain-link outfield fence he knocked off part of the fence. One day, two hours after practice, players were goofing around. Bautista climbed on to the mound — wearing flip flops, according to Fleck — and threw a 94 m.p.h. fastball. “That’s where coach got the idea of making him our closer,” Fleck said. Besides hitting .306 (two points ahead of Martin), 15 homers (in 186 at-bats, six more than Naccarata to lead the team) and driving in 41 runs, he topped the team with five saves.

In our boys JV-2 mile run, Jaylon Hall came in with a 15:34 and Johnny Sewell came in with a 16:05. Our girls Varsity fell short of a full team due to the involvement of many runners in a Volleyball tournament taking place on the same day.

At the state championships, when starter Kyle Pawelcyk had a tender arm, guess who Johnson tagged to start the third game? Who else? Their home run and saves leader, Jose Bautista. He pitched a completegame, 12-strikeout win in the semifinal, using a 95m.p.h. fastball and dropping down “for sort of a ‘slurvey’ slider,” said Johnson. Bautista threw 130 pitches, as his agent, Jay Alou, son of former San Francisco Giants outfielder Jesus Alou, paced. His client was about to go pro — and not as a pitcher. What if he injured his arm? Fleck told Alou: “We’re young and dumb.” “I played centre the next day, but my arm was sore,” said Bautista, who had not thrown more than 30 pitches in any other game that season. He finished the year with a 2.43 ERA and a 41 strikeouts over 331/3 innings. Having signed a letter of intent to South Carolina, and maintained a B-plus average in business at Chipola, Bautista had more leverage when he spoke with the Pirates again. The Bucs ended up giving him a $600,000 bonus, less than two years after he’d walked into Chipola carrying cleats in a plastic bag. The good news for Bautista was he spent only three seasons in the minors. The bad news was the roller coaster was set to begin. Bautista awoke Dec. 15, 2003 in the Dominican as a Pirates minor-leaguer playing winter ball for Licey. Two time zones away, at the winter meetings in New Orleans, the Baltimore Orioles selected Bautista in the Rule V draft. Scout Mickey White, now with the Orioles, liked Bautista’s versatility: “He could play second, third, outfield. We thought we’d get him 200 at-bats.” The Los Angeles Angels were in town when the end came in Baltimore. “There was a ball to the wall, Jose went back, his foot hit the turf — Camden Yards doesn’t have a dirt warning track — and was off-stride when he jumped,” White said. “The ball hit over his head and (then) Vladimir Guerrero hit a three-run homer.” White said O’s owner Peter Angelos said: “Get rid of him.” Bautista spent 16 games with the Orioles (11 atbats); was claimed on waivers by the Tampa Bay Rays on June 3 where he played 12 games (12 atbats) before being claimed by the Kansas City Royals on June 28, appearing in 13 games (25 at-bats). The New York Mets dealt Justin Huber to the Royals for Bautista on July 30 before shipping him and Ty Wigginton to the Bucs for Kris Benson at the nonwaiver trade deadline. In 227 days, Bautista was with the Pirates, Orioles, Rays, Royals, Mets and Pirates playing 64 games with 88 at-bats. He hit 16 homers in 469 at-bats with the 2006 Pirates. Alex Anthopoulos, then assistant GM, saw Bautista’s name on the waiver wire, called assistant GM Tony LaCava, and went to GM J.P. Ricciardi and the Jays put in a claim. Toronto had liked what they saw of Bautista in spring training. Bautista arrived Aug. 21, 2008, assuming the team lead in homers with 12. Robinzon Diaz, the Jays’ one-time catcher of the future, went to the Pirates. In 2009, his first full season with the Jays, Bautista was in and out of the lineup. His at-bats increased late in the year when Adam Lind moved to DH and outfielder Alex Rios was claimed off waivers by the Chicago White Sox. He finished the season with 13 HRs and 40 RBIs in 113 games. Then came 2010. Only once in this memorable season have we seen Bautista frustrated. It’s a season which included a trip to the allstar game, chasing and tying George Bell’s franchise home run record and getting praise heaped on him from dozens of exteammates around the league. We saw him at Anaheim Stadium a few hours before the 26th annual Home Run Derby. “If one more player asks me why I’m not in the home run derby ...” Bautista said his voice trailing off. How many? “Everyone I’ve spoken to,” Bautista said. Bautista, surprise AL home run leader at the allstar break, was ignored by Major League Baseball in favour or teammate Vernon Wells, Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers, Nick Swisher of the New York Yankees and David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox. Bautista did win the homer derby on alumni weekend in 2009. “He hit seven the final round,” said Johnson. “We’ve had some battles over the years depending on who shows.” Johnson has a galaxy of grads: Mat Gamel of the Milwaukee Brewers, Tyler Flowers of the Chicago White Sox; Richie Smith who played at Florida State and Martin. Angels’ Jeff Mathis, who lives in the area, won the contest this spring. What do people who knew Bautista in 19992000 in the cotton, corn and peanut farming area of the Florida Panhandle think of him? “I was one of the first Canadians he ever met,” said Keller. “Jose loves it here, he wants to stay a Blue Jay. He has a good feeling about how Canadians treat him.” Keller was in Toronto last month to see Bautista and see his sister Hilary, 20, Miss Saskatchewan, compete in the Miss Canada contest. “If I text him right now, he’ll get back to me within half an hour,” Johnson said. “He was very competitive in class and on the field.” He has donated money to the local Liberty County High School to make sure its softball program survived. “He didn’t let money go to his head,” said Fleck. “He’s a class act. We’ll be friends long after his career is over. It’s a nice kicker to say I know the home run leader. “I played with five or six guys who came through here on the way to the majors. Out of all of them, Jose always answer calls. Some guys, I’m not mentioning names, won’t call you back. He’s always been the same Jose. He’s a real guy.” From almost signing with the Reds, to Chipola, to a Rule V draft and now into the Jays record books.Jose Bautista continued Carters Law Enforcement 2868 Highway 71 North, P.O.

The Tigers from Chipley took the opening drive in an unbalanced formation with 4 offensive lineman on one side with foot to foot splits and took a 7-0 lead. We were never able to get in any type of flow offensively. Chipley used their size advantage to play keep away, getting small gains on running plays all the while running time off the clock. The best scoring opportunity we had we didn't get in on the first drive of the second half. Trailing 17-0, we were 4th and goal on the 1 yard line and had a blown blocking assignment and were unable to score. The defense held and we got the ball back on the 40 going in and stalled again. We had our shot to get back in the game, but just couldn't get in the endzone. I was proud of the defense for not allowing Chipley in the endzone in the second half. We try to take something good from every game and we can build on our second half effort. We all understand we need to execute better on offense if we are to be a threat in our district. Speaking of district, Wewa is our first district game of the year. We travel to Wewa this week for a tough road game to open district play.

The Blountstown Tigers could not stop Chipley’s running attack Friday night at Bowles Field and fell behind 17-0 by halftime. Neither could the Tigers score even with a first and goal from Chipley’s seven yard line on the opening series of the second half. Despite a strong effort by the Blountstown defense in the second half to keep Chipley from scoring more, the Tiger offense couldn’t put any points on the scoreboard. The 17-0 loss to Chipley evened the Tigers’ record at 1-1 with a district game coming up Friday night in Wewa at 7:00 p.m. “Our defense played better in the second half. Our offense must improve in every phase in order for us to win future games,” coach Greg Jordan said Monday. Chipley’s runningback Shonquelle Swain ran the ball 21 times for 124 yards as Chipley ran through and around the Tigers for 216 yards. Chipley threw only 3 passes and completed 2 for 16 yards. Blountstown rushed for 90 yards on 26 running plays and managed a meager 8 yards passing on 2 of 11 attempts. The Tigers lost one fumble in the game. Chipley ran 52 offensive plays for 232 yards while the Tigers managed 98 yards of offense on 37 plays. Chipley took the opening kickoff and marched down the field on runs of 10, 9, 12, and 11 before Swain scored from the 3. The PAT gave Chipley a 70 lead and half of the first quarter was gone. An exchange of punts moved the action to the second quarter before the Tigers turned the ball over at their own 15. A 37 yard field goal put Chipley ahead 10-0. Following another three and out, Chipley took over at their own 31 and put together another march down the field. Quarterback Josh Myers scored from 13 yards out and the PAT gave Chipley a 17-0 lead at intermission. Blountstown took the second half kickoff and put together their most impressive drive of the night starting at their own 20. Quarterback Charles Buggs, Jr. and Patrick Wilson had some good runs to set the Tigers up with a first down at Chipley’s 7 yard line. Two runs by Buggs moved the ball to the 2 and Wilson appeared to score on third down but was ruled down inside the one. Wilson was stopped short of the goal line on fourth down. The Tiger defense held and a short punt put Blountstown back in business at the Chipley 28. Two passes fell incomplete and the Tigers turned the ball over on downs at the Chipley 21. Blountstown never threatened again. Chipley drove the ball to the Blountstown 14 yard line and their drive ended on fourth down at the Tiger 6. Anthony Williams led the Tigers with 12 tackles followed by Corey McClellan with 10. Byron Hall had 9 tackles followed by Marquel Thomas, and Dowling Lee with 8 each. Brandon Smith, Patrick Wilson and Frankie Murrell had 6 tackles each while Ryan McIntyre, and Alexander Garrett had 5 each. Paul Mosley, Anthony Curry, Bobby Andrews and Patrick Pitts also made some defensive plays. Quarterback Charles Buggs, Jr. led the Tigers with 36 yards on 11 carries followed by Patrick Wilson with 33 yards on 5 carries. Ryan McIntyre added 15 yards on 3 carries followed by Marquel Thomas with 5 yards on 4 carries. The Tigers will need your support in Wewa in their first district game of the season. The J.V. Tigers moved to 3-0 on the year with a big win over the Sneads Pirates, 34-14, on Thursday. Jesse Hall got the scoring started with a 10 yard touchdown run and a successful 2 point conversion for an 8-0 lead. On the last possession before half, the Tigers scored again on a 20 yard touchdown pass from Hunter Jordan to Marquell Comer and another successful two point conversion by Jesse Hall for a 16-0 half time lead. In the 3rd quarter, Hunter Jordan had a 16 yard touchdown run with a failed two point conversion for a 22-0 lead. Late in the 3rd quarter, Brian Middlebrooks had touchdown runs of 30 and 60 yards for the final scoring for the Tigers. Sneads scored scored twice in the final quarter to cut the gap to 34-14 and the final score. The J.V. defense played well, not allowing Sneads to score until most of the starters had been pulled late in the game. The offensive line continues to improve each week with starters Hank Girardot, Jay Williams, CJ Hiers, Cole Taylor, Tommy Futch and Brett Bozeman getting the job done.

The BHS homecoming parade is set for Friday, Oct. 8, at 1 p.m. Since this is a very special year in the life of our school, great efforts are going into making this the BEST PARADE EVER! BHS has been on the site we are saying farewell to for over 100 years and things have certainly changed during that time. We would like to represent some of those changes with automobiles and tractors from each of the eras we have been on this site— 1900’s ‘til today. If you have any antique/show vehicles that you would like to have in the parade, please contact Sharon Leonard-McCrone at 850-674-5724 or sharon.mccrone@calhounflschools.org to line it up.

Wewa will be ready to play and we will have to execute better offensively and get back on track defensively to win this game. Thanks to all the Tiger fans that came out to support us against Chipley. The players and coaches will work hard to improve on this team as the season progresses. Sometimes a loss is not a bad thing if lessons are learned and mistakes are not repeated. We will take the things we did well and build on them and take the things we did not do well and get them fixed. In 2004 was the last time Chipley defeated Blountstown. We didn't lose again that year until the state championship game! We will take our medicine and move forward. Come and support the Tigers as open district play this week! Hope to see you at Wewa!!

That is why the local school district decided to cooperate with the “Farm to School” plan developed by the U.S. Senate with the childhood nutrition bill organizing programs in public schools. The object of this program is to connect schools (K-12) and local farms with the goal of serving healthier meals in schools. During this week of September 20 – 24, we have planned fresh fruits and/or vegetables each day in each of our five lunchrooms. As our county lunch mission statement states, “...We are committed to creating a program to nourish and educate the hearts, minds, and body of children while serving healthy, delicious breakfast and lunch each day in a warm and friendly atmosphere.” By uniting the farm and school lunch we are fulfilling our mission statement while teaching healthy eating habits that can last a lifetime.

BY ROGER KING, Pastor of Gateway Baptist Church As I looked out the window of the plane, the sun was disappearing over the horizon. My son and I were going to spend three days in our nation’s Capitol and attend the Glenn Beck “Restoring Honor Rally” at the Lincoln Memorial. For months I have felt a growing knot in the pit of my stomach. It was a deep concern for the developments in our nation. What future is there for our children, and our children's children? As I viewed the sunset I wondered if the sun was also setting on this two hundred thirty year experience of democracy we call America? On Memorial Day weekend I began a series of sermons entitled “Wake Up, America”. Earlier in the year I listened to General William Boykin share concerning the threat of radical Islam. I began to hear Glenn Beck and others give a variety of alarming revelations about current developments and the questionable people our president has chosen as czars and advisors. I began to see our federal government’s economic choices as a runaway passenger train whose brakes have failed and whose engineers are asleep at the controls. Then I began to study David Barton’s material. Barton is a historian who has accumulated thousands of original documents from our founding era. I began to discover fascinating information never presented in my high school or college American history classes about the founding fathers, their great faith and the wisdom that shaped our founding documents. Barton presents undeniable proof of the strong spiritual and Biblical values that became the backbone of the early American experience. In early days, education, law, every branch of government, and their leaders openly declared allegiance to the Bible and the importance of faith in God. These were not mere token statements to appease some religious voting block. They were bedrock convictions held by our founding fathers. Passionate proclamations for prayer and fasting were issued hundreds of times by early Presidents and governors. These proclamations were from governmental leaders, not preachers. Our founders knew that our nation’s dependency upon God was not an option. The current concept of separation of church and state had not yet been conceived in the minds of the modern Supreme Court justices who either deliberately ignored or were ignorant of the original intent of our founding fathers and a hundred years of precedence. Church worship services were held every Sunday in the Capitol Building until the early 1900's. Faith was everywhere. It was part of our identity. But today we have strayed far from that path and I wondered if America could awaken from it’s slumber. I heard Glenn Beck speak more and more about the importance of faith, hope, and charity. He clearly and boldly stated repeatedly that we must return to founding principles. I heard him passionately say, the only solution to the current mess is a return to faith in God. David Barton began to share on Beck's program. I began to consider attending the rally in Washington. On Friday evening, my son and I got out of the taxi at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington. There were only 2200 seats. Hundreds had stood in line for hours hoping for a ticket but as a pastor I was given a reservation in advance. This event was a part of Beck’s "Restoring Honor" emphasis. It was by invitation to pastors and spiritual leaders from across the country. Music began thirty minutes before the main event. A black musical group opened with worship songs and choruses including, "How great is our God", "These are the Days of Elijah", and "TheKATHY MAE (BRADSHAW) KOUMALATSOS Mrs. Kathy Mae (Bradshaw) Koumalatsos, 49, of Pensacola, FL, passed away Sunday, September 19, 2010, in Pensacola.

Battle Hymn of the Republic". Glenn Beck and David Barton emerged and began to introduce a variety of speakers. Barton shared historical perspectives and was heavily involved in the programming. The first speaker was a Jewish rabbi; second, a Catholic priest; the third, a rousing pastor from San Diego who had led his congregation "outside the four walls" to creatively meet the needs of his community during a time of great need. Gloria Copeland spoke on the necessity of faith. A veteran, Dave Roever, who lost half his face and hand in Vietnam, shared a rousing challenge. Speeches by founding fathers were read. Every voice, including Beck’s, resounded the message, we must deepen our faith in God and allow Him to direct our path. There is no political solution to our problems. God is our only hope. Beck had received a call from the Kennedy Center staff prior to the meeting questioning whether prayer would be a part of this program since this facility received government contributions. Beck responded, "If prayer is wrong, I guess you'll just have to sue me". There was prayer indeed. In fact, Pastor John Hagee gave the most moving benediction I have ever heard. I spoke to one man from Indiana on Saturday who shared that he had spent the night in the park to secure a desirable spot on the lawn for the rally. I asked him how many people were there all night. He said at least fifty thousand. The entire area from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial around the reflecting pool was covered with people throughout the night. They were forbidden to bring sleeping bags and tents, but they were there. Many formed small groups who prayed and sang together. Jeff and I had already visited the Lincoln Memorial on Friday. We had gone around noon when Beck arrived to perform a sound check with the staff who were setting up. The Memorial is truly inspiring. Inscribed on one interior wall is the Gettysburg Address. On the opposite wall is Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address. Both contain strong acknowledgements of God's providence and the importance of faith. If only our present leaders could echo what Lincoln had said, "...that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people, and for the people, shall not perish from the earth”. On rally day, we hurried through breakfast and began the 13 block trek past the White House to the Lincoln Memorial. The streams of people grew steadily as we got closer to the "mall". We were fortunate to be close enough to walk. Parking was impossible and the subway system and buses were jammed with people. We crossed the WWII memorial to the side of the refection pool where the "overflow crowd" was gathering and squeezed into a location under the trees where we could view the event on one of seven giant video screens. In front of us was a group wearing T-shirts with the famous picture of George Washington kneeling in prayer before his horse. Along with each picture was one of Washington's statements extolling the value of faith or prayer. In this group was a woman in her eighties, slightly bent forward but very engaged in the sights and sounds. I had seen this lady before or one very similar. She had the appearance of an aged prayer warrior whose faithful prayers have provided years of support for churches large or small all across this land. From time to time she enthusiastically waved her small American flag in approval to the messages she heard. So much could be said about the rally itself. Ordinary people who responded to life situations with faith, hope, and charity were highlighted. It was not about Sarah Palin, or Glenn Beck, or politics or celebrities. It was a challenge to each of us to find our place in our world, to follow the example of Moses who heard God's voice and obeyed. Beck’s exhortation was more like a sermon than a political speech. Attention was given to the dependents of a special operations group who lost eight men in the desert of Iran when a military maneuver went awry. These men had promised they would care for each other’s children should they not return from their mission. A phone “texting” number was placed on the giant scenes for anyone who wanted to make a ten dollar contribution. Ninety minutes later it was announced that over five million dollars had been received to support these dependents and many other children of fallen special operations soldiers. But this rally was not about money. It was a call to renew and strengthen our relationship with God. There were no cute or outrageous signs or political agenda. Commentators and media outlets have stumbled all over themselves trying to get a handle on this event. It doesn’t fit their grid. Why would a half million people come from all over America to an outdoor rally in August? I know why I went. I am deeply concerned for the direction of this nation. Unless there are serious changes very soon, our children and grandchildren will not enjoy the privileges we have known. Economic and moral collapse is upon us. Our nation has forsaken the God and the faith of our forefathers and replaced Him with the gods of money and human intellect. Our society thinks it is too smart for God. Our society thinks it has a better idea. Founding fathers were just a bunch of old guys wearing wigs but we’re enlightened. This is the prevailing view of our educational system and government and media. But everyone is not convinced. There is a vast number of people in this country that do not agree with big government and path it has taken. We are frustrated and we know there is a better way. Faith is not dead in America and we will not be silent. We are not stupid, nor ignorant. We know there is a God in heaven who is not pleased with the directions this nation has taken Glenn Beck is a voice in the wilderness. He has a microphone and the ability to communicate. He sounded the alarm and many responded. I was one of them. I went not because I am a follower of Glenn Beck, but I sincerely seek to hear God’s voice and obey. I believe I heard God’s voice instructing me to go, God provided the means to go, and I am glad I went. But, you may ask, what was your significance among a massive crowd of over 500,000 people? If everyone takes that attitude, there will never be change. There is a time to act and a time to stand with those who stand. It was my time to stand. This was not a group of political activists. It was primarily believers, Christians. I saw it in their faces. I heard it in their conversation. I saw it in their reactions. They were people like you and I who are tired of business as usual. And I can tell you there is nothing like being in a crowd of half a million people in our nations Capitol singing “Amazing Grace”. I returned to Blountstown encouraged. I will continue to be encouraged by things I heard. I met people and saw many others who share my concerns. I am not alone. I know that most of you share these concerns. I can now tell you, we are not alone. And I choose to echo the message of the “Restoring Honor Rally”. Deepen your relationship with God. Seek to hear and obey Him. Speak up. Stand. Our hope is in God. There is a huge segment of this country that continues to be true to their faith. Like Paul Revere of old, Glenn Beck has sounded an alarm and provided us a visible place to stand for our faith. I was honored to stand among them. I am the pastor of Gateway Baptist Church where we have been viewing the David Barton video series, “The American Heritage Series” throughout the summer on Sunday evenings at 6 PM. It has strengthened our resolve and provided valuable information about our true heritage. We have six weeks remaining in this series. You are invited to join us. You will be encouraged.

The County Record, SEPTEMBER 22, 2010, Page 14 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.

tackles



issues
BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
The Blountstown City
Council is tackling several
issues this month. Here's
the lowdown:
V The city took up the
the Dogwood Estates
paving project, dealing with
the subdivision developed
by former Council member
Steve Bailey. A $91,000
bid for paving the roads is
on the table City Manager
James Woods noted the city
owns the roads and
stormwater facility and is
responsible. Councilman
David Blair stated the
city's code requires devel-
opers to be responsible for
all infrastructure. A lengthy
discussion ensued. The
matter was tabled pending
more research.
V A severance pay
package for the city manag-
er has been proposed by
Mayor Winston Deason.
The mayor stated it should
already have been in place.
The package is estimated at
$42,000 with benefits. A
proposed contract is being
drafted.
V Councilman Blair is
proposing golf cart policies
allowing carts to be driven
on streets with certain
restrictions.
COURT

Update in

Due to a miscommunica-
tion in an interview with the
State Attorney's Office,
some incorrect information
was reported in last week's
edition.
It was noted that C.L.
Capps, Jr. had failed to show
up for a pre-trial conference
in a grand theft and dealing
in stolen property case and
a warrant had been issued
for his arrest. That part was
correct. However, the arti-
cle also stated jury selection
was cancelled Monday after
Capps failed to show. It was
later learned that the trial
was actually postponed.
when Capps didn't appear
at pre-trial. Capps reported-
ly called the Clerk's Office
and said he forgot about the
pre-trial hearing.

Altha's Cross Country Team




runs in panhandle jamboree


Two weekends ago, the
Altha School cross country
team competed in the
Panhandle Jamboree in
Marianna.
This year we have put
together a Junior Varsity
team along with our
Varsity. On our girls JV-2
mile run, Abbie Edenfield
came in with a time of
21:22 and Stephanie


went on to win the
Panhandle conference.
At the state champi-
onships, when starter Kyle
Pawelcyk had a tender
arm, guess who Johnson
tagged to start the third
game?
Who else? Their home
run and saves leader, Jose
Bautista.
He pitched a complete-
game, 12-strikeout win in
the semifinal, using a 95-
m.p.h. fastball and drop-
ping down "for sort of a
surveye' slider," said
Jdhnson.
Bautista threw 130
pitches, as his agent, Jay
Alou, son of former San
Francisco Giants outfielder
Jesus Alou, paced. His
client was about to go pro
- and not as a pitcher.
What if he injured his arm?
Fleck told Alou: "We're
young and dumb.".
"I played centre the
next day, but my arm was
sore," said Bautista, who
had not thrown more than
30 pitches in any other
game that season.
He finished the year
with a 2.43 ERA and a 41
strikeouts over 331/3
innings.
Having signed a letter of
intent to South Carolina,
and maintained a B-plus
average in business at
Chipola, Bautista had more
leverage when he spoke
with, the Pirates again.
The Bucs ended up giv-
ing him a $600,000 bonus,
less than two years after
he'd walked into Chipola
carrying cleats in a plastic
bag.
The good news for
Bautista was he spent only
three seasons in the
minors. The bad news was
the roller coaster was set to
begin.
Bautista awoke Dec. 15,
2003 in the Dominican as a
Pirates minor-leaguer play-
ing winter ball for Licey.
Two time zones away, at
the winter meetings in New
Orleans, the Baltimore
Orioles selected Bautista in
the Rule V draft.
Scout Mickey White,
now with the Orioles, liked
Bautista's versatility: "He
could play second, third,
outfield. We thought we'd
get him 200 at-bats."
The Los Angeles Angels
were in town when the end

Wriston came in with a
time of 22:25.

In our boys JV-2 mile
run, Jaylon- Hall came in
with a 15:34 and Johnny

Our girls Varsity fell
short of a full team due to
the involvement of many
runners in a Volleyball

"There was a ball to the
wall, Jose went back, his
foot hit the turf Camden
Yards doesn't have a dirt
warning track and was
off-stride when he
jumped," White said. "The
ball hit over his head and
(then) Vladimir Guerrero
hit a three-run homer."
White said O's owner
Peter Angelos said: "Get
rid of him."

Bautista spent 16 games
with the Orioles (11 at-
bats); was claimed on
waivers by the Tampa Bay
Rays on June 3 where he
played 12 games ( 12 at-
bats) before being claimed
by the Kansas City Royals
on June 28, appearing in
13 games (25 at-bats).
The New York Mets
dealt Justin Huber to the
Royals for Bautista on July
30 before shipping him and
Ty Wigginton to the Bucs
for Kris Benson at the non-
waiver trade deadline.
In 227 days,. Bautista
was with the Pirates,
Orioles, Rays, Royals,
Mets and Pirates* playing
64 games with 88 at-bats.
He hit 16 homers in 469
at-bats with the 2006
Pirates.
Alex Anthopoulos, then
assistant GM, saw
Bautista's name on the
waiver wire, called assis-:
tant GM Tony LaCava,
and went to GM J.P
Ricciardi and the Jays put
in a claim. Toronto had
. liked what they saw of
Bautista in spring training.
Bautista arrived Aug.
21, 2008, assuming .the
team lead in homers with
12. Robinzon Diaz, the
Jays' one-time catcher of
the future, went to the
Pirates.
In 2009, his first full
season with the Jays,
Bautista was in and out of
the lineup.
His at-bats increased
late in the year when Adam
Lind moved to DH and
outfielder Alex Rios was
claimed off waivers by the
Chicago White Sox. He fin-
ished the season with 13
HRs and 40 RBIs in 113
games.
Then came 2010.
Only once in this memo-
rable season have we seen
Bautista frustrated.

It's a season which
included a trip to the all-
star game, chasing and
tying George Bell's fran-
chise home run record and
getting praise heaped on
him from dozens of ex-
teammates around the
league.
We saw him at Anaheim
Stadium a few hours before
the 26th annual Home Run
Derby.
"If one more player asks
me why I'm not in the
home run derby ..."
Bautista said his voice trail-
ing off.
How many?
"Everyone I've spoken
to," Bautista said.
Bautista, surprise AL
home run leader at the all-
star break, was ignored by
Major League Baseball in
favour or teammate Vernon
Wells, Miguel Cabrera of
the Detroit Tigers, Nick
Swisher of the New York
Yankees and
David Ortiz of the
Boston Red Sox.
Bautista did win the
homer derby on alumni
weekend in 2009.

"He hit seven the final
round," said Johnson.
"We've had some battles
over the years depending
on' who shows."
Johnson has a galaxy of
grads: Mat Gamel of the
Milwaukee Brewers, ,TyIler
Flowers of the Chicago
White Sox; Richie Smith
who played at Florida
State and Martin. Angels'
Jeff Mathis, who lives in
the area, won the contest
this spring.
What do people who
knew Bautista in 1999-
2000 in the cotton, corn
and peanut farming area of
the Florida Panhandle
think of him?
"I was one of the first
Canadians he ever met,"
said Keller. "Jose loves it
here, he wants to stay a
Blue Jay. He has a good
feeling about how
Canadians treat him."
Keller was in Toronto
last month to see Bautista
and see his sister Hilary,
20, Miss Saskatchewan,
compete in the Miss
Canada contest.
"If I text him right now,
he'll get back to me within
half an hour," Johnson said.
"He was very competitive

He has donated money
to the local Liberty County
High School to make sure
its softball program sur-
vived.
"He didn't let money go
to his head," said Fleck.
"He's a class act. We'll be
friends long after his career
is over. It's a nice kicker to
say I know the home run
leader.
"I played with five or six
guys who came through
here on the way to the
majors. Out of all of them,

with the Reds, to Chipola,
to a Rule V draft and now
into the Jays record books.


The Tigers tasted defeat
for the.first time in 2010
with a 17-0 loss to the
Chipley Tigers.
The Tigers from Chipley
took the opening drive in an
unbalanced formation with
4 offensive lineman on one
side with foot to foot splits
and took a 7-0 lead. We
were never able to get in
any type of flow offensively.
Chipley used their size
advantage to play keep
away, getting small gains on
running plays all the while
running time off the clock.
The best scoring opportuni-
ty we had we didn't get in
on the first drive of the sec-
ond half. Trailing 17-0, we
were 4th and goal on the 1
yard line and had a blown
blocking assignment and
were unable to score. The
defense held and we got the


ball back on the 40 going in
and stalled again. We had
our shot to get back in the
game, but just couldn't get
in the endzone.
I was proud of the
defense for not allowing
Chipley in the endzone in
the second half. We try to
take something good from
every game and we can
build on our second half
effort. We all understand
we need to execute better
on offense if we are to be a
threat in our district.
Speaking of district,
Wewa is our first district
game of the year. We travel
to Wewa this week for a
tough road game to open
district play. Last year, the
Tigers had to score twice
late in the second half to

Tigers fall


to


Chipley


The Blountstown Tigers
could not stop Chipley's
running attack Friday night
at Bowles Field and fell
behind 17-0 by halftime.
Neither could the Tigers
score even with a first and
goal from Chipley's seven
yard line on the opening
series of the second half.
Despite a strong effort by
the Blountstown defense in


the second half to keep
Chipley from scoring more,
the Tiger offense couldn't
put any points on the score-
board.
The 17-0 loss to Chipley
evened the Tigers' record
at 1-1 with a district game
coming up Friday night in
Wewa at 7:00 p.m.
"Our defense played
better in the second half.


Our offense must improve
in every phase in order for
us to win future games,"
coach Greg Jordan said
Monday.
Chipley's runningback
Shonquelle Swain ran the
ball 21 times for 124 yards
as Chipley ran through and
around the Tigers for 216
yards. Chipley threw only
3 passes and completed 2


Marquel Thomas looks for an opening against the Chipley Tigers


for 16 yards.
Blountstown rushed for
90 yards on 26 running
plays and managed a mea-
ger 8 yards passing on 2 of
11 attempts. The Tigers
lost one fumble in the
game.
Chipley ran 52 offensive
plays for 232 yards while
the Tigers managed 98
yards of offense on 37
plays.
Chipley took the open-
ing kickoff and marched
down the field on runs of
10, 9, 12, and 11 before
Swain scored from the 3.
The PAT gave Chipley a 7-
0 lead and half of the first
quarter was gone.
An exchange of punts
moved the action to the
second quarter before the
Tigers turned the ball over
at their own 15. A 37 yard
field goal put Chipley
ahead 10-0.
Following another three
and out, Chipley took over
at their own 31 and put'
together another march
down the field.
Quarterback Josh Myers
scored from 13 yards out
and the PAT gave Chipley
a 17-0 lead at intermission.
Blountstown took the
second half kickoff and put
together their most impres-
sive drive of the night start-
ing at their own 20.
Quarterback Charles
Buggs, Jr. and Patrick
Wilson had some. good runs
to set the Tigers up with a
first down at Chipley's 7
yard line.
Two runs by Buggs
moved the ball to the 2 and
Wilson appeared to score
on third down but was
ruled down inside the one.
Wilson was stopped short
of the goal line on fourth
down.
The Tiger defense held
and a short punt put
Blountstown back in busi-
ness at the Chipley 28.
Two passes fell incomplete


and the Tigers turned the
ball over on downs at the
Chipley 21.
Blountstown never
threatened again. Chipley
drove the ball to the
Blountstown 14 yard line
and their drive ended on
fourth down at the Tiger 6.
. Anthony Williams led
the Tigers with 12 tackles
followed by Corey
McClellan with 10. Byron
Hall had 9 tackles followed
by Marquel Thomas, and
Dowling Lee with 8 each.
Brandon Smith, Patrick

while Ryan McIntyre, and


Alexander Garrett had 5
each. Paul Mosley,
Anthony Curry, Bobby

also made some defensive
plays.
Quarterback Charles

with 36 yards on 11.carries
followed by Patrick Wilson
with 33 yards on 5 carries.
Ryan McIntyre added 15
yards on 3 carries followed

is 1-2 on the year with a win
over Tallahassee Maclay
and losses to Chipley and
Jefferson County. Wewa will
be ready to play and we will
have to execute better
offensively and get back on
track defensively to win this
. game.
Thanks to all the Tiger
fans that came out to sup-
port us against Chipley. The
players and coaches will
work hard to improve on
this team as the season pro-
gresses. Sometimes a loss is
not a bad thing if lessons are
learned and mistakes are
not repeated. We will take
the things we did well and
build on them and take the
things we did not do well
and get them fixed. In 2004
was the last time Chipley
defeated Blountstown. We
didn't lose again that year
until the state championship
game! We will take our
medicine and move for-
ward.

Lunchrooms celebrate


Focusing on sound nutri-
tion is high priority for
school lunchroom employ-
ees when planning, prepar-
ing and serving the meals
to our students in Calhoun
County. That is why the
local school district decided
to cooperate with the
"Farm to School" plan
developed by the U.S.
Senate with the childhood
nutrition bill organizing pro-
grams in public schools.
The object of this pro-
gram is to connect schools
(K-12) and local farms with
the goal of serving healthier
meals in schools. During
this week of September 20


- 24, we have planned fresh
fruits and/or vegetables
each day in each of our five
lunchrodms.
As our county lunch mis-
sion statement states,
"...We are committed to
creating a program to nour-
ish and educate the hearts,
minds, and body of children
while serving healthy, deli-
cious breakfast and lunch
each day in a warm and
friendly atmosphere."
By uniting the farm and
school lunch we are fulfill-
ing our mission statement
while teaching healthy eat-
ing habits that can last a
lifetime.

attend restaurant show


Florida Restaurant
Show
by Morgan Davis
Three upper level culi-
nary students, Taylor Curl,
Rebecca Pitts, and Morgan
Davis, participated in an
educational trip September
13th to Orlando, Florida,
with Mrs. Nancy Mears.
At the Florida
Restaurant Show, the stu-
dents experienced what it
would be like to work in the
food industry.
"It was very fast paced,
and you had to be on your
toes," says Taylor.
This event was held in a
convention center that had
many booths to sample
numerous foods and
smoothies.
"I enjoyed seeing and
tasting all the different
types of foods," says
Rebecca. Morgan, who also
added, "The sites were
amazing; we saw many
sculptures made of different
kinds of food, ice, and what-
ever else you can eat!"
We have a plethora of
ideas we plan to try in class
that we have learned from
this experience.

Pastor Roger King shares eyewitness


report from "Restoring Honor Rally"


BY ROGER KING, Pastor of
Gateway Baptist Church


. raL As I looked out the win-
e; a
anice dow of the plane, the sun
was disappearing over the
srmer horizon. My son and I were
ckins, going to spend three days in
veral our nation's Capitol and
attend the Glenn Beck
were "Restoring Honor Rally" at
mber the Lincoln Memorial. For
T) at months I have felt a growing
lome knot in the pit of my stom-
erend ach. It was a deep concern
eating. for the developments in our
n the nation. What future is there
etery for our children, and our chil-
dren's children? As I
are viewed the sunset I won-
n of dered if the sun was also set-
Peavy ting on this two hundred thir-
in ty year experience of democ-
674- racy we call America?
On Memorial Day week-
end I began a series of ser-
mons entitled "Wake Up,
ND America". Earlier in the
year I listened to General
William Boykin share con-
eland cerning the threat of radical
n as Islam. I began to hear Glenn
1, of Beck and others give a vari-
away ety of alarming revelations
r 20, about current developments
and the questionable people
ecuri- our president has chosen as
f the czars and advisors. I began
ed to to see our federal govern-
d out- ment's economic choices as a
runaway passenger train
by a whose brakes have failed and
mpan- whose engineers are asleep
shall at the controls.

d F David Barton's material.
d. Barton is a historian who has
accumulated thousands of
orida original documents from our
id his founding era. I began to dis-
Dusas, cover fascinating information
ghter, never presented in my high
d her school or college American
uincy, history classes about the
dchil- founding fathers, their great
dchil- faith and the wisdom that
their shaped our founding docu-
ada. ments. Barton presents
s will undeniable proof of the
ET, strong spiritual and Biblical
er 23, values that became the back-
y in bone of the early American
experience: In early days,

importance of faith in God.
These were not mere token
statements to appease some
religious voting block. They
were bedrock convictions
held by our founding fathers.
Passionate proclamations
for prayer and fasting were
issued hundreds of times by
early Presidents and gover-
nors. These proclamations
were from governmental
leaders, not preachers. Our
founders knew that our
nation's dependency upon
God was not an option. The
current concept of separation
of church and state had not
yet been conceived in the
minds of the modern
Supreme Court justices who
either deliberately ignored or
were ignorant of the original
intent of our founding fathers
and a hundred years of
precedence. Church worship
services were held every
Sunday in the Capitol
Building until the early
1900's. Faith was every-
where. It was part of our
identity.
But today we have
strayed far from that path
and I wondered if America
could awaken from it's slum-
ber. I heard Glenn Beck


speak more and more about
the importance of faith,
hope, and charity. He clear-
ly and boldly stated repeat-
edly that we must return to
founding principles. I heard
him passionately say, the
only solution to the current
mess is a return to faith in
God. David Barton began
to share on Beck's program.
I began to consider attending
the rally in Washington.
On Friday evening, my
son and I got out of the taxi
at the Kennedy Center for
the Performing Arts in
Washington. There were
only 2200 seats. Hundreds
had stood in line fdiphburs
hoping for a ticket but as a
pastor I was given a reserva-
tion in advance. This event
was a part of Beck's
"Restoring Honor" emphasis.
It was by invitation to pas-
tors and spiritual leaders
from across the country.
Music began thirty minutes
before the main event. A
black musical group opened
with worship songs and ,cho-
ruses including, "How great
is our God", "These are the
Days of Elijah", and "The

No. 8
CONSTITUTIONAL
AMENDMENT
ARTICLE IX, SECTION 1
ARTICLE XII,
SECTION 31
(Legislative)

Ballot Title:
REVISION OF THE CLASS
SIZE REQUIREMENTS
FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

Ballot Summary: "
The Florida Constitution
currently limits the maxi-
mum number of students
assigned to each teacher in
public school classrooms in
the following grade group-
ings: for prekindergarten
through grade 3, 18 students;
for grades 4 through 8, 22
students; and for grades 9
through 12, 25 students. Un-
der this amendment, the cur-
rent limits on the maximum
number of students assigned
to each teacher in public
school classrooms would
become limits on the average
number of students assigned
per class to each teacher,
by specified grade group-
ing, in each public school.
This amendment also adopts
new limits on the maxi-
mum number of students
assigned to each teacher in
an individual classroom as
follows: for prekindergarten
through grade 3, 21 students;
for grades 4 through 8, 27
students; and for grades 9
through 12, 30 students. This
amendment specifies that
class size limits do not apply
to virtual classes, requires the
Legislature to provide suf-
ficient funds to maintain the
average number of students
required by this amendment,
and schedules these revisions
to take effect upon approval
by the electors of this state
and to operate retroactively
to the beginning of the 2010-
2011 school year.

ARTICLE IX
EDUCATION


SECTION 1. Public educa-
tion.--
(a) The educa-
tion of children is a funda-
mental value of the people
of the State of Florida. It is,
therefore, a paramount duty
of the state to make adequate
provision for the educa-
tion of all children residing
within its borders. Adequate
provision shall be made by
law for a uniform, efficient,
safe, secure, and high quality
system of free public schools
that allows students to obtain


a high quality education and
for the establishment, main-
tenance, and operation of
institutions of higher learning '
and other public education
programs that the needs of
the people may require. To
assure that children attending
public schools obtain a high
quality education, the legisla-
ture shall make adequate pro-
vision to ensure that, by the
beginning of the 2010-2011
20+0 school year and for
each school year thereafter,
there are a sufficient number
of classrooms so that:
(1) Within each
public school, the average
maximum number of stu-
dents who-are assigned per
class to each teacher who
is teaching in publie-sehool
classrooms-for prekinder-
garten through grade 3 does
not exceed 18 students and
the maximum number of stu-
dents assigned to each teach-
er in an individual classroom
does not exceed 21 students;
(2) Within each
public school, the average
maximum number of stu-
dents who are assigned per
class to each teacher who
is teaching in publie-sehool-
elassrooms-for grades 4
through 8 does not exceed 22
students and the maximum
number of students assigned
to each teacher in an indi-
vidual classroom does not
exceed 27 students; and
(3) Within each
public school, the average
maximum number of stu-
dents who -are assigned per
class to each teacher who
is teaching in public e-hool-
classr6omsfor grades 9
through 12 does not exceed
25 students and the maxi-
mum number of students
assigned to each teacher in
an individual classroom does
not exceed 30 students. The
class size requirements of
this subsection do not apply
to extracurricular or virtual
classes. Payment of the costs
associated with meeting
reduc ng class size tosomeet
these requirements is the
responsibility of the state and.
not of local school schools
districts. Beginning with-
the 2003-2004 fiscal year,
The legislature shall provide
sufficient funds to maintain
reduce the average number
of students required by in-
each ..ssroom by at least
two students per c year utl61
the maximLtu number of stu-
dents per classroom does not
exeed the rquirements-of
this subsection.
(b) Every four-
year old child in Florida shall
be provided by the State a
high quality prekindergarten
pre-kindergarten learning
opportunity in the form of an
early childhood development
and education program which
shall be voluntary, high
quality, free, and delivered
according to professionally
accepted standards. An early
childhood development and
education program means an
organized program designed
to address and enhance each
child's ability to make age
appropriate progress in an
appropriate range of set-
tings in the development
of language and cognitive
capabilities and emotional,
social, regulatory, and moral
capacities through education
in basic skills and such other ,
skills as the Legislature may
determine to be appropriate.
(c) The early
childhood education and
development programs pro-
vided by reason of subsection
subparagraph (b) shall be
implemented no later than
the beginning of the 2005
school year through funds
generated in addition to those
used for existing education,
health, and development
programs. Existing educa-


tion, health, and development
programs are those funded
by the State as of January 1,
2002, that provided for child
or adult education, health
care, or development.

The County Record, SEPTEMBER 22, 2010, Page 12


Restoring Honor Rally continued


Battle Hymn of the
Republic".
Glenn Beck and David
Barton emerged and began
to introduce a variety of
speakers. Barton shared
historical perspectives and
was heavily involved in the
programming. The first
speaker was a Jewish rabbi;
second, a Catholic priest; the
third, a rousing pastor from
San Diego who had led his
congregation "outside the
four walls" to creatively meet
the needs of his community
during a time of great need.
Gloria Copeland spoke on
the necessity of faith. A vet-
eran, Dave Roever, who lost
half his face and hand in
Vietnam, shared a rousing
challenge. Speeches by
founding fathers were read.
Every voice, including
Beck's, resounded the mes-
sage, we must deepen our
faith in God and allow Him
to direct our path. There is
no political solution to our
problems. God is our only
hope.
Beck had received a call
from the Kennedy Center
staff prior to the meeting
questioning whether prayer
would be a part of this pro-
gram since this facility
received government contri-
butions. Beck responded, "If
prayer is, wrong, I guess
you'll just have to sue me".
There was prayer indeed. In
fact, Pastor John Hagee gave
the most moving benediction
I have ever heard.
I spoke to one man from
Indiana on Saturday who
shared that he had spent the
night in the park to secure a
desirable spot on the lawn
for the rally. I asked him
how many people were there
all night. He said at least
fifty thousand. The entire
area from the steps of the
Lincoln Memorial around
the reflecting pool was cov-
ered with people throughout
the night. They were forbid-
den to bring sleeping bags
and tents, but they were
there. Many formed small
groups who prayed and sang
together.
Jeff and I had already vis-
ited the Lincoln Memorial
on Friday. We had gone


around noon when Beck
arrived to perform a sound
check with the staff who
were setting up. The
Memorial is truly inspiring.
Inscribed on one interior wall
is the Gettysburg Address.
On the opposite wall is
Lincoln's Second Inaugural
Address. Both contain
strong acknowledgements of
God's providence and the
importance of faith. If only
our present leaders could
echo what Lincoln had said,
"...that this nation under God
shall have a new birth of
freedom and that govern-
ment of the people, by the
people, and for the people,
shall not perish from the
earth".
On rally day, we hurried
through breakfast and began
the 13 block trek past the
White House to the Lincoln
Memorial. The streams of
people grew steadily as we
got closer to the "mall". We
were fortunate to be close
enough to walk. Parking was
impossible and the subway
system and buses were
jammed with people. We
crossed the WWII memorial
to the side of the refection
pool where the "overflow
crowd" was gathering and
squeezed into a location
under the trees where we
could view the event on one
of seven giant video screens.
In front of us was a group
wearing T-shirts with the
famous picture of George
Washington kneeling in
prayer before his horse.
Along with each picture was
one. of Washington's state-
ments extolling the value of
faith or prayer. In this group
was a woman in her eighties,
slightly bent forward but
very engaged in the sights
and sounds. I had seen this
lady before or one very simi-
lar. She had the appearance
of an aged prayer warrior
whose faithful prayers have
provided years of support for
churches large or small all
across this land. From time
to time she enthusiastically
waved her small American
flag in approval to the mes-
sages she heard.
So much could be said
about the rally itself.


Ordinary people who
responded to life situations
with faith, hope, and charity
were highlighted. It was not
about Sarah Palin, or Glenn
Beck, or politics or celebri-
ties. It was a challenge to
each of us to find our place in
our world, to follow the
example of Moses who heard
God's voice and obeyed.
Beck's exhortation was more
like a sermon than a political
speech.
Attention was given to the
dependents of a special oper-
ations group who lost eight
men in the desert of Iran
when a military maneuver
went awry. These men had
promised they would care for
each other's children should
they not return from their
mission. A phone "texting"
number was placed on the
giant scenes for anyone who
wanted to make a ten dollar
contribution. Ninety min-
utes later it was announced
that over five million dollars
had been received to support
these dependents and many
other children of fallen spe-
cial operations soldiers.
But this rally was not
about money. It was a call to
renew and strengthen our
relationship with God.
There were no cute or outra-
geous signs or political agen-
da. Commentators and
media outlets have stumbled
all over themselves trying to
get a handle on this event. It
doesn't fit their grid. Why
would a half million people
come from all over America
to an outdoor rally in
August?
I know why I went. I am
deeply concerned for the
direction of this nation.
Unless there are serious
changes very soon, our chil-
dren and grandchildren will
not enjoy the privileges we
have known. Economic and
moral collapse is upon us.
Our nation has forsaken the
God and the faith of our fore-
fathers and replaced Him
with the gods of money and
human intellect. Our socie-
ty thinks it is too smart for
God. Our society thinks it
has a better idea. Founding
fathers were just a bunch of
old guys wearing wigs but


we're enlightened. This is
the prevailing view of our
educational system and gov-
ernment and media.
But everyone is not con-
vinced. There is a vast num-
her of people in this country
that do not agree with big
government and path it has
taken. We are frustrated
and we know there is a bet-
ter way. Faith is not dead in
America and we will not be
silent. We are not stupid,
nor ignorant. We know there
is a God in heaven who is not
pleased with the directions
this nation has taken
Glenn Beck is a voice in
the wilderness. He has a
microphone and the ability
to communicate. He sound-
ed the alarm and many
responded. I was one of
them. I went not because I
am a follower of Glenn Beck,
but I sincerely seek to hear
God's voice and obey. I
believe I heard God's voice
instructing me to go, God
provided the means to go,
and I am glad I went.
But, you may ask, what
was your significance among
a massive crowd of over
500,000 people? If every-
one takes that attitude, there
will never be change. There
is a time to act and a time to
stand with those who stand.
It was my time to stand.
This was not a group of
political activists. It was pri-
marily believers, Christians.
I saw it in their faces. I
heard it in their conversa-
tion. I saw it in their reac-
tions. They were people like
you and I who are tired of
business as usual. And I can
tell you there is nothing like
being in a crowd of half a mil-
lion people in our nations
Capitol singing "Amazing
Grace".
I returned to Blountstown
encouraged. I will continue
to be encouraged by things I
heard. I met people and
saw many others who share
my concerns. I am not
alone. I know that most of
you share these concerns. I
can now tell you, we are not
alone. And I choose to echo
the message of the
"Restoring Honor Rally".
Deepen your relationship


with God. Seek to hear and
obey Him. Speak up.
Stand. Our hope is in God.
There is a huge segment of
this country that continues to
be true to their faith. Like
Paul Revere of old, Glenn
Beck has sounded an alarm
and provided us a visible
place to stand for our faith. I
was honored to stand among
them.
I am the pastor of
Gateway Baptist Church
where we have been viewing


the David Barton video
series, "The American
Heritage Series" throughout
the summer on Sunday
evenings at 6 PM. It has
strengthened our resolve and
provided valuable informa-
tion about our true heritage.
We have six weeks remain-
ing in this series. You are
invited to join us. You will be
encouraged. David Barton's
information can be found at
Wallbuilder's.com.

Making This Right


Beaches

Claims

Cleanup

Economic Investment

Environmental-
Restoration
Health and Safety

Wildlife


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.
