The show airs locally on WJHG Channel 7 at 6:30 p.m. This week, Christy shares her story on how she came to appear on the show. “Wheel of Fortune: is my favorite game show. A few years ago, I decided I wanted to be on the show one day. I knew it was a long shot and I never really thought I’d make it; but I signed up to find out when auditions would be in my area. Last fall, I heard the Wheel Mobile was coming to Raleigh and they were doing auditions! I thought it would be fun to try to get on the show. My friend and I stood in line to have our names picked to go on stage and do an informal audition for the show. The line of people that wanted to try out wrapped around a city block. Our names didn’t get called and left a little disappointed; but I knew if the Wheel Mobile ever came back, I would try again to WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 2010 104th Year, No. 6 BLOUNTSTOWN, FLORIDA 32424 50 CENTS (Including Tax) BUSINESSState closes Wakulla BankB B Y Y K K E E L L L L I I P P E E A A C C O O C C K K D D U U N N N N N N e e w w s s E E d d i i t t o o r r State banking officials, escorted by Florida Highway Patrol troopers, arrived at local branches of Wakulla Bank at closing time Friday to seize control of the financial institution. Signs of trouble first arose in August 2009 when the Florida Office of Financial Regulation issued a cease and desist order to Wakulla Bank citing "unsafe and unsound" practices. Adeadline was set to correct the problems, but the issues were apparently not resolved to the state’s satisfaction, leading to the closure on Friday.

Currently, voters in Calhoun County can cast ballots for only one county commissioner and one school board member to represent their district. However, over in Liberty County, as well as many other areas, every registered voter gets to vote for each representative on the commission and school board. Back in 1996, a local group pushed to have the issue placed on the ballot in Calhoun County as a referendum asking voters if they wished to change from single member districts to atlarge voting. Calhoun Countians spoke loud and clear, with 70 percent in favor of switching to atlarge voting in both the commission and school board elections, which were listed separately on the ballot.

A twisted web is being unraveled at CalhounLiberty Hospital where an anonymous tip helped uncover a case of alleged insurance fraud. Warrants were issued Tuesday for the arrests of Dallas Hogans, 26, of Bristol, and Cedric Bernard Simmons, 34, of Blountstown. Both Hogans and Simmons are being charged with three counts of conspiracy to commit insurance fraud over $20,000. Hogans is charged with three counts of forgery and Simmons is charged with being a principle to forgery. Administrator Phillip Hill recently received an anonymous phone call from a concerned person who believed insurance fraud could be occurring at the hospital. The caller provided enough information to prompt Hill to conduct an internal investigation. After Hill did some digging, he spoke with Hogans, a housekeeping employee, who eventually confessed that she was working with Simmons, a correctional officer at Gulf Correctional Institution, in a scheme to obtain life insurance on a patient. Hogans said her role was to scope out potential victims. Specifically, she was to determine if the patient could “speak, write, or had family visiting.” Hill contacted Blountstown Police Chief Glenn Kimbrel and Inv. Timothy Partridge was assigned to the case. He learned that Hogans and Simmons had applied for three life insurance policies on a 74 year-old patient who met their “criteria” of not being able to speak or write and didn’t have family stopping by. The policies totalled $200,000 with Hogans and Simmons reportedly 50/50 beneficiaries. Hill said Hogans was immediately fired and two other employees have been suspended pending further investigation. Chief Kimbrel commends Hill for contacting authorities. “My hat’s off to him for the way he handled the situation.” Corrections officer, hospital employee face fraud chargesCOMMUNITYThe eye of the beholderMost locals probably think they've seen every thing there is to see in Blountstown, but if you're checking out your hometown through a camera lens, you'll see more than you expected.

As of 1/1/11, all septic tank owners will be required to have their tanks pumped and inspected every five years whether they need it or not. If your tank fails the state inspection, it must be repaired or replaced. Some systems may require complete replacement costing $3000 to $4000, plus the inspection fees. If you don’t comply, you can be fined $500 per day, plus a misdemeanor charge. If your systems fails to pass and you can’t afford to repair it or qualify for a grant, you may not be able to live in your house with a non-compliant septic system because your electricity could be subject to be turned off for not having a working system. For city sewage, the law will require that all septage, including at the treatment plant, not be disposed on land after 1/1/16. This will increase the city sewage rate. Also if DOH has control, they they and EPA plan to enforce numeric nutrient criteria on the city treatment plans which would cost up to $75 billion in Florida. Do the math: that’s $60 per person, per month on a 10 year amortization. Florida residents need to act now before the November election and send a message to politicians that they could lose our support in the upcoming election if they don’t repeal this law in special session before their term ends.

However, after a threat of a federal lawsuit by the NAACP, they rescinded their vote in April of 1998. Citizen organized meetings were held back in February of 2009 to revive this issue, but it has been idle for well over a year. When the Patriots gathered Thursday night for their monthly meeting, they decided it was time to get the ball rolling to pursue what the majority of Calhoun Countians voted to do 14 years ago. “We intend to pursue all necessary avenues to ensure this gets done,” says Jim Pruette, who heads the local Patriots group. Members immediately began polling elected officials and those running for office and Pruette says they have received an overwhelmingly positive response for the drive to go to at-large voting. The Patriots will be meeting with the County Commission in the near future to take the next step in their effort.

The County Record, OCTOBER 6, 2010, P P a a g g e e 6 6 Lady Cats defeat Munroe, now 10-6BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News Editor The Altha Lady Cats split two games last week, losing to Sneads on Tuesday, then defeating R.F. Munroe Thursday. Altha came out strong in the first game against Sneads, winning 25-22. They fell short the next three games of the match, 14-25, 21-25, 17-25. “It was a great game. Sneads is a good team and it gave us a picture of what our district play-offs would be like,” says Coach LeAnna Hall. “After some games that were full of errors, our girls are learning how to minimize those mistakes so that we are a much more effective team. They always take the court with determination and heart and it does pay off.” Christy Simmons chalked up five kills, six digs, two blocks and an ace for Altha. Cortney Harris offered three kills, six assists, and a block. Angela Waldron provided five kills and a block. Aerial Folsom had four kills and 10 assists. McKenzie Tanner had three kills. Sharlyn Smith offered five digs and Mary Sewell had four. The tables were turned Thursday against Munroe, with Altha celebrating a 1525, 25-22, 25-14, 25-21 victory. “It was a great district win,” says Coach Hall. Simmons pulled down an impressive 16 kills and offered two blocks. Harris provided four kills, nine assists, and three digs. Waldron added five kills. The win put the Wildcats at 10-6 for the season.

WAYNE GABLE TOWN OF ALTHA 850-693-0972Willard O’Brian has always loved drag racing. In the early 60s, he would go to the old Sunset Drags in Panama City on Sunday afternoons on dates. He has raced all over the southeast. Willard married Alma, the special girl that joined him on those Sunday dates, on Oct. 10, 1964. They have three children Arnold, David Wayne, and Tracy. The family gathered in Panama City two weekends ago for the 10th anniversary of the Old Drag Racers Reunion. On Friday night, a dinner was held with awards presented, including one to Alma the “Stand By Your Man” trophy. Willard also received a small medal that evening, but it was the following night when he was truly honored. A car show was held on Saturday with about 50 to 60 participants, including Willard’s car, “Old Rusty”, that captured the Cacklefest trophy and the Peoples Choice award. Later that day, a gathering was held during which Willard was inducted into the “Living Legends Hall of Fame”. Willard and Alma’s daughter, Tracy, had the honor of presenting the award to her father. She recalled growing up at the races, watching her daddy work on “Old Rusty”, and how the racing community supported her family when Willard was diagnosed with cancer back in 1993. “We were struggling financially to make ends meet,” she recalls. “But, by the grace of God and our friends and extended families, we were able to make it.” She told of how the Powerhouse Dragstrip, owned by Larry Walters at the time, hosted a benefit race for her father. “God blessed us with friends that came from miles around to help in our time of need. We were so grateful that words could not express. It is nice to know that you belong to such a wonderful family.” Willard not only celebrates wins on the race track, he also defeated cancer. He and his wife continue to use drag racing as a ministry for the Lord. On the back of “Old Rusty” are the words, “Stand Up For Jesus.” We salute you, Willard! Congratulations on being named a “Living Legend”.Willard O'Brian inducted into Living Legends Hall of Fame'The Calhoun County Youth Soccer League will have a “Soccer Kickoff” on Saturday, Oct. 9, from 9 a.m. to noon at Sam Atkins Park in Blountstown.

The Blountstown Tigers improved to 3-1 Friday night with their second consecutive blowout victory. Graceville and former Tiger coach Todd Wertenberger were the victims as Blountstown rolled 40-13 at Bowles Field. Blountstown’s running and passing attacks were in full gear as the Tigers racked up 462 yards of offense while the defense held Graceville to 113 yards on 46 plays. The Tigers will be at home again this Friday night against an always tough West Gadsden team for homecoming. On the Tigers’ first series, quarterback Charles Buggs, Jr. connected with Patrick Wilson for 44 yards. Ryan McIntyre rambled for 21 and Buggs scored from the 7. The PAT failed, but the Tigers were ahead 6-0 in less than three minutes. The Tiger defense, led by Alexander Garrett with 9 tackles, forced Graceville to punt. On first down Buggs passed to Paul Mosley for 36. Three plays later, Wilson cut back to the middle and raced 36 yards for a touchdown. The two-point try came up short, but the Tigers were up 12-0. The Tiger defense stopped Graceville on a fourth down play and the offense took over at the Tiger 37. After reaching the Graceville 12, the Tigers failed to convert on fourth down. Graceville put together their best drive of the night and scored in 10 plays. The PAT failed and the score was 12-6. Blountstown responded with a 53 yard, 5 play drive. A 36 yard run by McIntyre and a 14 yard run by Wilson were the key plays in the drive. Wilson extended the ball over the goal line from the one for the touchdown. Buggs passed to Paul Mosley for two points and the Tigers were ahead 20-6 at halftime. Graceville returned the second half kickoff to the Tiger 5 and scored from the three on second down. The PAT made the score 2013. Paul Mosley came up with an interception later in the third quarter and returned it 40 yards to the Graceville 23. Marquel Thomas turned the corner and scored from 12 yards out. Buggs passed to McIntyre for the two points and the Tigers extended their lead to 28-13. After forcing a Graceville punt, the Tigers took over at the Graceville 36. Buggs passed to McIntyre for 29 yards for a first down at the 11. Bobby Andrews then made it around the corner and scored for the Tigers. The PAT failed, but the Tigers were ahead 34-13. Tiger defender Dowling Lee made a big tackle on fourth down and the Tigers took over at their own 22. Wilson raced for 30 and two plays later McIntyre raced 32 for a touchdown. The PAT failed, but the final score of 40-13 was on the scoreboard. Patrick Wilson led the Tigers with 124 yards on 10 carries followed by Ryan McIntyre with 107 on 6 carries. Buggs rushed for 48, Thomas for 28 and Andrews added 21. Buggs completed 3 of 8 passes for 109 yards, 1 touchdown and had one pass intercepted. Corey McClellan, Frankie Murrell, Brandon Smith, Anthony Curry, Paul and Jawon Mosley, Marquel Thomas, Anthony Williams, Chris Byrne and Byron Hall were all in on defensive plays for the Tigers.The County Record, OCTOBER 6, 2010, P P a a g g e e 7 7Tigers defeat Graceville, 40-13 by Blountstown Tiger Head Coach Greg Jorda n The BHS Tigers improved to 3-1 on the year with a 4013 win over Graceville. This was a one touchdown game when Graceville scored early in the 3rd quarter to make the score 20-13. It was all BHS from that point on as we scored 3 unanswered TD's to blow open the game for the 40-13 final. Offensively, the BHS Tigers rushed for 353 yards on 40 carries and passed for 109 on 3/8 completions. Total offense was a season high 462 yards on 48 plays for an average of 9.6 yards per play. The offense is starting to show improvement each week as the season progresses. Defensively, the BHS Tigers held Graceville to 39 rushing yards and 74 passing yards for 113 total yards on 46 plays. Graceville had almost 200 total gross yards but had 75 yards of negative plays on the night. That is a direct result of great pressure the defense is getting and putting pressure on the opposing offenses. Both sides of the ball need to continue to get better as we head into the meat of our district schedule. This will be the final homecoming on the current BHS campus. This week we will host West Gadsden as our homecoming opponent. West Gadsden has a record of 0-4. Numbers don't always tell the entire story as West Gadsden has played the toughest 1A schedule probably in the state. Their first four opponents have been East Gadsden, Crestview, Chiles and Rickards, both of Tallahassee. Every team in our district would probably be 0-4 with that four game stretch. West Gadsden is a very talented football team with skill every where. We will have to play a mistake free football and not turn the ball over and give them any momentum. It will be an exciting football game, come out and support the Tigers!! Hope to see you at the game!

Early this year, I received an email from Wheel of Fortune telling me I had been invited to audition. I couldn’t believe it! Somehow, by God’s hand, I had been chosen. I didn’t hesitate to call and tell them I would love to try out! When I arrived at the audition, there were only 75 people—much less than I expected. The contestant coordinators took our names and a picture of each of us so they could identify who we were. They called our names and we were given an opportunity to choose a letter and try to solve a puzzle. I solved a puzzle (and won a Wheel of Fortune baseball cap) that round. I felt pretty good. Next, the coordinators gave us five minutes to solve fill in the blank puzzles. The coordinators collected our puzzles and scored them. Then they came back in the room and called out 25 of us and told us that we could stay. I had made it to the final round of tryouts! We tried out like it was the show, with five of us at a time taking turns pretending to spin, guessing letters, and solving puzzles. I solved another puzzle that round. After everyone had a few chances to try out, they told us our audition was over. They let us know if we were selected to be a contestant, we’d receive a letter in the next two to three weeks. Almost three weeks to the day, I received my letter from “Wheel of Fortune” telling me that I had been selected to be on the show and that I would receive a call sometime within the next eighteen months about when I would be taping my show! I had to wait until the end of July before I recieved my call. I was told my tape date would be Friday, August 13th. The next two weeks went by so fast. I studied like I was taking a final exam. I went online and found a lot of helpful hints about solving puzzles. And of course I had recorded and watched every single episode of “Wheel of Fortune” this year. My husband, John, and I arrived in LA the day before the taping. I was so concerned that I would sleep in for my shuttle to the Studios that I tried to go to bed early. I didn’t realize I’d be up at 4:45 AM and ready to start my day because of the time difference. I made myself try to sleep a little more. I was up and ready to meet the shuttle at 7:15 AM. When I got to the lobby, I met some of the other contestants that had travelled to be on the show. Wheel of Fortune tapes six shows a day, two or three days each month.There were twenty contestants that day (including two alternates, just in case anyone does not make it). We were taken to the studios and were not allowed to use our phones or have access to any one outside the studio. I did not know my mom’s flight had been delayed in Panama City the night before and she barely made it to the studios in time. The four hours before the show went by quickly. I stayed calm as I got to know the other contestants. The contestant coordinators talked to us and gave us tips. We had an attorney go over the legal paperwork for being on the show. We had our makeup done professionally. They took us out to the stage. The Wheel is big and very heavy. We got familiar with layout — where the Letter Board and Score Board are, how to spin the Wheel, how to clap, and they moved the risers up and down for our heights. While we were on stage, I saw my husband John, my mom, Frances, and Laurie come in to be seated which made me nervous. Then the contestants went back in the room and had more instructions from the coordinators. I barely recognized Vanna when she breezed through and wished us good luck. The next thing I knew, it was show time. I was in the group for the first taping. I was both relieved and nervous to be first. I was relieved, because I wouldn’t have to wait until 5:00 to tape a show, but I really wished I could have watched a few others go before me. They had us go on stage before Pat and Vanna. I saw them behind the Puzzle Board. It was at that moment that it hit me: this was a special moment in my life— one I’d never forget.

A few columns back I wrote about my favorite things. In order for one’s life to be in balance, there would have to be some not so favorite things, can’t have yin without yang. One thing I noticed while penciling in an outline for this article was that it may require two, what does that say about me? Time to do an inventory, but that is for another story. We were sitting at the Kinard Library one Saturday morning, the usual suspects, when the subject came up of leaving work to go get lunch. Next you get hit with the dreaded question, “Where ya going?” Reply, “Sandwich Heaven” Three people then whip out money and start scribbling orders. Here is what is wrong with that, where I work, I have one hour for lunch, if half of that is waiting on Joe’s special order, #1 but, hold the pickle, extra lettuce, 1 gram of non fat mayo and extra spicy mustard, and make sure the pumpernickel was baked fresh today or else get me the onion loaf………. Multiply this by three. Then, you return, with separate change, juggling sodas, (sweet tea with no ice) only to discover 45 min have gone by and you only have a quarter of your lunch brake to slam down your own lunch, which you forgot to get. Murderous thoughts run thru your mind as you watch your coworkers enjoy their hand delivered meals leisurely while reading the paper, because they have a full hour. This example is only slightly embellished, but some of you understand. While we are on lunch, let me share this. Because I work retail, I have patience with other folks who work retail, to a point. Just the other day I was at a fast (subjective) food drive thru. It was HOT, and the AC in my car does not WORK, and the line was LONG and SLOW. There were three cars ahead of me; the one at the front was just sitting at the window, no activity. The two in front of me were losing their minds, they kept laying on the horn ( life lesson here, if you want the folks inside to speed up, blowing the horn is the very last thing you want to do, this applies equally to moving out of YOUR lane of traffic, or completing a turn in front of you) They would alternate horn blowing with buzzing the window down just enough to stick and arm out (don’t want to loose any of that AC) and make that “what the heck is the hold up” gesture. Me, I already have both of my windows down, did I mention I have no AC, and I am not the least upset, other than when in these situations, you are sure you are going to die of thirst before you get to that window, because you feel trapped. Speaking of, I was once trapped in a drive through car wash. It was self service, pay and wait for the green light pull in, stop at the red one. It got stuck with the big brush thingy right at the windshield. So, of course as a Stephen King reader, I just knew the thing was going to eat me, car and all, and understand, there is no attendant to notice that something is wrong, and who do you call? 911 maybe, I mean who wants to make the newspaper like that? Eventually the machine reset and things went okay. Back to the snail race where I was awaiting my lunch. After an agonizing and horn sound filled two minutes, the line started moving again. I could see the lady next in line giving the window attendant what for, and could actually feel the person in front of me formulating and even nastier insult. When it was finally my turn, I was told they were sorry of the wait, but they were short handed today. Then the attendant sort of cringed and leaned away from the glass, awaiting another onslaught, which did not come. “No worries, mate, I’m sure you are doing the best you can.” (Life lesson #2. The person they put in harms way at the drive through is usually not the person who caused the problem, they are safely hidden from the firing line. Strive to be the one who breaks the chain of bad vibes, it is the easiest way to make someone’s day.) I was rewarded with a smile. I was feeling pretty good about myself as I pulled away, I mean heck, the sweat will dry, goanna smell bad, but, I will take a shower sometime this week, boy, those fries sure smell good, maybe I will take a hit off those first, wow those are hot, where is my straw, big swig of sprite with no ice…….BAM. Someone made a horrible error. No sprite, just soda water!!! (Life lesson #3 Sometimes Life lesson # 2 must be ignored, someone must pay) The events that followed are not fit for publication. Other things that come to my mind as least favorite. People who think the left lane belongs only to them, I mean come on folks, this is 231, not I-65.

BIn the School District of Calhoun County, currently recognized revenue losses from the 2007-2008 fiscal year to the 2009-2010 fiscal year are equivalent to a per pupil decrease of more than 6.1 percent in total funding, and a decline of $2,088,869 million in state revenues, and additional reductions are anticipated for the 2010-2011 and subsequent fiscal years. CAs authorized by Section 1011.71(3)(b), Florida Statutes, as amended by Ch.2009-59, § 33, at 35, Laws of Fla., this Board determined, by an annual super majority vote, to levy an additional 0.25 mills for critical operating needs of the District (or “Critical Needs Millage”) for the 2009-2010 fiscal year in an effort to preserve critical operations of the District while enduring declining state revenues.

Bank of Conway, Arkansas, to assume all of the deposits of Wakulla Bank. Depositors at all 12 branches of Wakulla Bank will automatically become depositors of Centennial Bank. Deposits will continue to be insured by the FDIC. The closure of Wakulla Bank raises the total number of bank failures across the country in 2010 to 129 and the 25th in Florida. As of June 30, 2010, Wakulla Bank had approximately $424.1 million in total assets and $386.3 million in total deposits. Centennial Bank did not pay the FDIC a premium for the deposits of Wakulla Bank. In addition to assuming all of the deposits of the failed bank, Centennial Bank agreed to purchase essentially all of the assets. The FDIC and Centennial Bank entered into a lossshare transaction on $212.7 million of Wakulla Bank's assets. Centennial Bank will share in the losses on the asset pools covered under the loss-share agreement. The lossshare transaction is projected to maximize returns on the assets covered by keeping them in the private sector. The transaction also is expected to minimize disruptions for loan customers. The FDIC estimates that the cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF) will be $113.4 million. Compared to other alternatives, Centennial Bank's acquisition was the least costly resolution for the FDIC's DIF.

Look, dude, if you want around me, GO around me, I am unaware that you are the king of all mankind, live with your “just like the rest of us” status. Now I am not talking about the two jerks that get beside each other and agree to go ten miles under the speed limit here, it should be legal to “bump” them. I am talking about when no one else is around and someone gets right on your bumper in the left lane, “their” lane….just don’t get me started. How about the person who walks up to you while you are reading and just starts yakking away while you are at lunch, or on a plane or airport, park bench etc. Then, five minutes into what they find so interesting, they always ask, “Oh, were you reading?” “Oh, no, not me, I was waiting for this fly that is annoying me to land in this book then I was going to slam it shut, now, please, what were you saying?” How about that unmentionable person who keeps putting stuff in the wrong spot in the kitchen?? Man I hate that. Oh, here is another thing that drives me nuts. You buy a new (different) vehicle, let’s say a Ford truck, man it is so cool, the last owner took real good care of it, I mean the primer even closely matches the original color. You have a cd player that will rattle the coffee cup three cars away at the SLOW, HOT drive through. The driver’s seat will lie back so far that you just can see the bottom half of the traffic light, but, you still need to personalize your ride. You go down to the auto parts/ burger stand to pick out one of those sticker thingys to cover up your back glass, after much deliberation, and twelve text messages you make your mind up. You go out in the parking lot to install your statement for all the read…….FORD TRUCKS. Again, don’t get me started, Lord help us when these knuckleheads take over. I swear, I am going to get me a big belt buckle, custom made that reads…….BELT BUCKLE. I could go on, but I bet by now you are thinking, you know what I dislike, it’s those news paper columnist that think they are so funny, and smart, and good looking and…….Don’t even get me started.Moment continued D DA A V V I I D DP PI I T T T T S SU.S. Navy 1941 to 1945 World War IIA TRIBUTETOOURSOLDIERSSaluting Those Who Served Our CountryThe County Recordis paying tribute to the men and women who have served our great country in the military.

This year the Settlement will host a "Tea Room" in the wonderful new Club House, a log cabin. I wanted to know more about the cabin; I did know it served as an educational facility in Calhoun County for many years but that was all I knew. I called the Calhoun County Board of Education and was referred to Mrs. Dona Dunn who taught school in Calhoun County for many years, and even taught in the log cabin. Mrs. Dunn told me she loved the years she spent there and so did her students. Mrs. Dunn said her grandmother, Clara Jones got together with her girlfriend Kate Foster and decided to build the town a community center starting with a log cabin. Neal Land and Timber donated most of the lumber, merchants did not have a lot to give in those years. The ladies just kept harassing the men and the cabin was completed in 1933, a beautiful historic landmark representing the fortitude of two women and a great town. Calhoun county's first community center. Saturday, October 16, we will be serving iced tea, coffee, cake and air conditioning in this log cabin built in 1933. All donations will be used for the enrichment of the log cabin club house. This building as well as others may be rented for your own personal events.

The County Record, OCTOBER 6, 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.

News Editor
State banking officials,
escorted by Florida
Highway Patrol troopers,
arrived at local branches of
Wakulla Bank at closing
time Friday to seize control
of the financial institution.
Signs of trouble first
arose in August 2009 when
the Florida Office of
Financial Regulation issued
a cease and desist order to
Wakulla Bank citing
"unsafe and unsound" prac-
tices. A deadline was set to
correct the problems, but
the issues were apparently
not resolved to the state's
satisfaction, leading to the
closure on Friday.
According to a press
release from the Federal
Deposit Insurance
Corporation (FDIC), to
protect the depositors, the
FDIC entered into a pur-,
chase and assumption

Corrections officer, hospital




employee face fraud charges


BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
Oh, what a tangled web
we weave, when first we
practice to deceive.
A twisted web is being
unraveled at Calhoun-
Liberty Hospital where an
anonymous tip helped
uncover a case of alleged
insurance fraud.
Warrants were issued
Tuesday for the arrests of
Dallas Hogans, 26, of
Bristol, and Cedric
Bernard Simmons, 34, of


Blountstown. Both Hogans
and Simmons are being
charged with three counts
of conspiracy to commit
insurance fraud over
$20,000. Hogans is
charged with three counts
of forgery and Simmons is
charged with being a prin-
ciple to forgery.
Administrator Phillip
Hill recently received an
anonymous phone call
from a concerned person
who believed insurance
fraud could be occurring at

Christy Corbin Evans


on 'Wheel of Fortune'


BY CHRISTY CORBIN EVANS
Blountstown's own
Christy Corbin Evans, the
daughter of Dr. Finlay and
Donna Corbin who now
resides in Raleigh, NC, is
set to appear on "Wheel of
Fortune" Monday, Oct. 11.
The show airs locally on
WJHG Channel 7 at 6:30
p.m. This week, Christy
shares her story on how she
came to appear on the
show.
"Wheel of Fortune: is my
favorite game show. A few
years ago, I decided I want-
ed to be on the show one
day. I knew it was a long
shot and I never really
thought I'd make it; but I


signed up to find out when
auditions would be in my
area.
Last fall, I heard the
Wheel Mobile was coming
to Raleigh and they were
doing auditions! I thought it
would be fun to try to get on
the show. My friend and I
stood in line to have our
names picked to go on stage
and do an informal audition
for the show. The line of
people that wanted to try
out wrapped around a city
block. Our names didn't get
called and left a little disap-
pointed; but I knew if the
Wheel Mobile ever came
back, I would try again to

the hospital. The caller
provided enough informa-
tion to prompt Hill to con-
duct an internal investiga-
tion.
After Hill did some dig-
ging, he spoke with
Hogans, a housekeeping
employee, who eventually
confessed that she was
working with Simmons, a
correctional officer at Gulf
Correctional Institution, in
a scheme to obtain life
insurance on a patient.
Hogans said her role was


to scope out potential vic-
tims. Specifically, she was
to determineif the patient
could "speak, write, or had
family visiting."
Hill contacted
Blountstown Police Chief
Glenn Kimbrel and Inv.
Timothy Partridge was
assigned to the case. He
learned that Hogans and
Simmons had applied for
three life insurance policies
on a 74 year-old patient
who met their "criteria" of
not being able to speak or


Capps arrested in burglary case
C.L. Capps, Jr., 43, of Blountstown, was arrest
last Wednesday for grand theft and
burglary. m
According to the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office, a Wrennie Moody
Road resident reported he left his
home for 30 minutes on Aug. 30 and
returned to find a Mariner outboard
motor was missing from a boat in his CAPPS
yard. A tip and evidence from ATV
tracks led to Capps.
He remained in custody at press time.

Hansford busted with chemicals
Kevin Justin Hansford, 27, has been charged
with possession of listed chemicals.
According to the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office, Hansford was
stopped on Flatwoods Road Sunday
night by Dep. Nick Keller and Dep.
Nate Jordan for speeding and having
an expired tag. Dep. Eddie Dalton HMSFORD
and his K-9 were called to the scene
and the dog alerted to the presence of drugs.
Several cold medicines, lithium cell phone batter-
ies, lighter fluid, ammonia nitrate, and tools used
to strip lithium batteries were discovered, leading
to Hansford's arrest.
He remained in custody at press time.

Mills jailed for being disorderly
William Jason Mills of Altha was
arrested Thursday night on charges
of disorderly intoxication, damage to
property, and resisting arrest with
out violence.
According to the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office, Dep. Eddie Dalton
and Sgt. Jared Nichols responded to
a disturbance at a 10th Street home where Sgt.
Nichols spotted Mills throw a full beer at a
woman, then took him into custody. Mills report-
edly resisted, pulling away from the officer and
cursing, then beating his head on the patrol car
cage. Mills continued to resist when taken to the
jail and broke a phone in his cell.

cies totalled $200,000 with
Hogans and Simmons
reportedly 50/50 benefici-
aries.
Hill said Hogans was
immediately fired and two
other employees have
been suspended pending
further investigation.
Chief Kimbrel com-
mends Hill for contacting
authorities. "My hat's off
to him for the way he han-

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
The Calhoun Liberty
Patriots have voted to tack-
le an issue that has con-
cerned many area residents
for years.
Currently,. voters in
Calhoun County can cast
ballots for only one 'county
commissioner and one
school board member to
represent their district.
However, over in Liberty
County, as well as many
other areas, every regis-
tered voter gets to vote for
each representative on the
commission and school
board.
Back in 1996, a local
group pushed to'have the
issue placed on the ballot in
Calhoun County as a refer-
endum asking voters if they
wished to change from sin-
gle member districts to at-
large voting. Calhoun
Countians spoke .loud and
clear, with 70 percent in
favor of switching to at-
large voting in both the
commission and school
board elections, which were
listed separately on the bal-
lot. The following year, the

Agriculture's Natural
Resources Conservation
Service (NRCS) in Florida
has set a cutoff date of
October 29, 2010, to sub-
mit applications for several
voluntary conservation pro-
grams that may help eligi-
ble participants pay for con-
servation practices to pre-
vent soil erosion, improve
water quality, restore wet-
lands and provide habitat
for wildlife.
The Environmental
Quality Incentives Program
(EQIP) is a conservation
program that provides
financial and technical
assistance to farmers and
ranchers who face threats
to soil, water, air, and relat-
ed natural resources on

NRCS develops contracts
with agricultural producers
to voluntarily implement
conservation practices.


Persons engaged in live-
stock or agricultural pro-
duction and owners of non-
industrial private forestland
are eligible for the program.
Eligible land includes crop-
land, pastureland, private
non-industrial forestland,
and other farm or ranch
lands.
The Wildlife Habitat
Incentive Program (WHIP)
is a voluntary program for
developing or improving
high quality habitat that
supports fish and wildlife
populations of National,
State, Tribal, and local sig-
nificance. Through WHIP,

Tigers prepare for homecoming
The BHS Tigers improved to 3-1 on the year with a 40-
13 win over Graceville.
This was a one touchdown game when Graceville
scored early in the 3rd quarter to make the score 20-13. It
was all BHS from that point on as we scored 3 unanswered
TD's to blow open the game for the 40-13 final.
Offensively, the BHS Tigers rushed for 353 yards on 40
carries and passed for 109 on 3/8 completions. Total
offense was a season high 462 yards on 48 plays for an
average of 9.6 yards per play. The offense is starting to
show improvement each week as the season progresses.
Defensively, the BHS Tigers held Graceville to 39 rush-
ing yards and 74 passing yards for 113 total yards on 46
plays. Graceville had almost 200 total gross yards but had
75 yards of negative plays on the night. That is a direct
result of great pressure the defense is getting and putting
pressure on the opposing offenses. Both sides of the ball
need to continue to get better as we head into the meat of
our district schedule.
This will be the final homecoming on the current BHS
campus. This week we will host West Gadsden as our
homecoming opponent. West Gadsden has a record of 0-4.
Numbers don't always tell the entire story as West
Gadsden has played the toughest 1A schedule probably in
the state. Their first four opponents have been East
Gadsden, Crestview, Chiles and Rickards, both of
Tallahassee. Every team in our district would probably be
0-4 with that four game stretch.
West Gadsden is a very talented football team with skill
every where. We will have to play a mistake free football
and not turn the ball over and give them any momentum.
It will be an exciting football game. come out and support
the Tigers!!
Hope to see you at the game! GO TIGERS!!!


season 5-0
The Blountstown Junior
Varsity Tigers had plenty to
celebrate Thursday night.
Not only did they defeat
their rivals, the Bulldogs of
Liberty County, but it was
an end to a perfect season.
The J.V. Tigers marked a
20-6 win over LCHS, put-
ting their record for the sea-
son at 5-0.
Brian Middlebrooks
scored first for the Tigers on
a 35 yard touchdown run.
Hunter Jordan scored from
the five yard line on a run-
ning play. Then Ryan
Hathcox intercepted the
ball and ran 75 yards for a
touchdown.
The majority of J.V play-
ers will be advancing to the
varsity team this Friday
night for BHS homecoming.

Saturday, October 2,
the Altha Cross Country
team traveled to Miller


Landing in Tallahassee to
compete in the Cougar
Challenge hosted by Godby
High School.
According to Coach John
Sewell, "It was the ideal
running weather."
Although it was not an
easy course, many of our
runners worked hard to
achieve their personal best
times. The girls finished in
the top ten as a team for
the second invitational in a
row.
Mary Sewell led the
girls in 29th place with a
time of 22:45. Kimi Wiltse
and Sharlyn Smith finished.
69th and 70th, with Kimi

Plazarin came in 84th with
a time of 26:58. Emily
Sewell came in 97th with a
time of 27:46. Following
Emily, Madison Rowe fin-
ished 109th with a time of

get on the show.
I didn't have to wait!
Early this year, I received
an email from Wheel of
Fortune telling me I had
been invited to audition. I
couldn't believe it!
Somehow, by God's hand, I
had been chosen. I didn't
hesitate to call and tell
them I would love to try
out!
When I arrived at the
audition, there were only
75 people-much less than
I expected. The contestant
coordinators took our
names and a picture of each
of us so they could identify
who we were. They called
our names and we were
given an opportunity to
choose a letter and try to
solve a puzzle. I solved a
puzzle (and won a Wheel of
Fortune baseball cap) that
round. I felt pretty good.
Next, the coordinators gave
us five minutes to solve fill
in the blank puzzles. The
coordinators collected our
puzzles and scored them.
Then they 'came back in
the room and called out 25
of us and told us that we
could stay. I had made it to
the final round of tryouts!
We tried out like it was the
show, with five of us at a
time taking turns pretend-
ing to spin, guessing letters,
and solving puzzles. I
solved another puzzle that
round.. After everyone had
a few chances to try out,
.they told us our audition
was over. They let us know
if we were selected to be a
contestant, we'd receive a
letter in the .next two to
three weeks.
Almost three weeks to
the day, I received my let-
ter from "Wheel of
Fortune" telling me that I
had been selected to be on
the show and that I would
receive a call sometime
within the next eighteen
months about when I would
be taping my show! I had to
wait until the end of July
before I recieved my call. I
was told my tape date
would be Friday, August
13th. The next two weeks
went by so fast. I studied
like I was taking a final
exam. I went online and
found a lot of helpful hints
about solving puzzles. And
of course I had recorded
and watched every single

Fortune" this year.
My husband. John. and
I arrived in LA the day
before the taping. I was so
concerned that I would
sleep in for my shuttle to
the Studios that I tried to
go to bed early. I didn't
realize I'd be up at 4:45
AM and ready to start my
day because of the time dif-
ference. I made myself try
to sleep a little more. I was
up and ready to meet the
shuttle at 7:15 AM.
When I got to the lobby,
I met some of the other
contestants that had trav-
elled to be on the show.
Wheel of Fortune tapes six
shows a day, two or three
days each month.There
were twenty contestants
that day (including two
alternates, just in case any-
one does not make it). We
were taken to the studios
and were not allowed to use
our phones or have access
to any one outside the stu-
dio. I did not know my
mom's flight had been
delayed in Panama City the
night before and she barely
made it to the studios in
time.
The four hours before
the show went by quickly. I
stayed calm as I got to
know the other contestants.
The contestant coordina-
tors talked to us and gave
us tips. We had an attorney
go over the legal paperwork


for being on the show. We
had our makeup done pro-
fessionally. They took us
out to the stage. The Wheel
is big and very heavy. We
got familiar with layout -
where the Letter Board
and Score Board are, how
to spin the Wheel, how to
clap, and they moved the
risers up and down for our
heights. While we were on
stage, I saw my husband
John. my mom, Frances.
and Laurie come in to be
seated which made me
nervous. Then the contest-
ants went back in the room
and had more instructions
from the coordinators. I
barely recognized Vanna
when she breezed through
and wished us good luck.
The next thing I knew, it
was show time. I was in the
group for the first taping. I
was both relieved and nerv-
ous to be first. I was
relieved, because I would-
n't have to wait until 5:00
to tape a show, but I really
wished I could have
watched a few others go
before me. They had us go
on stage before Pat and
Vanna. I saw them behind
the Puzzle Board. It was at
that moment that it hit me:
this was a special moment
in my life- one I'd never
forget.
Tune in Monday night
to see how Christy did on
"Wheel of Fortune"!'

How do you feel about
preplanning? Do you think
it's a wise idea?...Have you
ever taken 10 or 15
minutes to talk about what
you would or would not
want for your
funeral?...Have you ever
had to make arrangements
for a loved one?...If there
had been a death in the
family yesterday, what do
you think you'd be doing
today?
The benefits of a
preplanned funeral are the
protection it gives your
family as well as the peace
of mind it gives you,
knowing that everything
will be taken care of
according to your wishes.
Decide on preplanning..for
your family's sake.

A few columns back I
wrote about my favorite
things. In order for one's
life to be in balance, there
would have to be some not
so favorite things, can't
have yin without yang. One
thing I noticed while pencil-
ing in an outline for this
article was that it may
require two, what does that
say about me? Time to do
an inventory, but that is for
another story.
We were sitting at the
Kinard Library one
Saturday morning, the
usual suspects, when the
subject came up of leaving
work to go get lunch. Next
you get hit with the dread-
ed question, "Where ya
going?" Reply, "Sandwich
Heaven" Three people
then whip out money and
start scribbling orders.
Here is what is wrong with
that, where I work, I have
one hour for lunch, if half of
that is waiting on Joe's spe-
cial order, #1 but, hold the
pickle, extra lettuce, 1
gram of non fat mayo and
extra spicy mustard,, and
make sure the pumpernick-
el was baked fresh today or
else get me the onion
loaf.......... Multiply this
by three.
Then, you return, with
separate change, juggling
sodas, (sweet tea with no
ice) only to discover 45 min
have gone by and you only
have a quarter of your
lunch brake to slam down
your own lunch, which you
forgot to get. Murderous
thoughts run thru your
mind as you watch your
coworkers enjoy their hand
delivered meals leisurely
while reading the paper,
because they have a full
hour. This example is only
slightly embellished, but
some of you understand.
While we are on lunch,
let me share this. Because
I work retail, I have
patience with other folks
who work retail, to a point.
Just the other day I was at
a fast (subjective) food
drive thru. It was HOT, and
the AC in my car does not
WORK, and the line was
LONG and SLOW. There
were three cars ahead of
me; the one at the front was
just sitting at the window,
no activity. The two in front
of me were losing their
minds, they kept laying on
the horn ( life lesson here, .if
you want the folks inside to
speed up, blowing the horn
is the very last thing you
want to do, this applies
equally to moving out of


DENTURE
LAB on
PREMISES
Same-Day
Service on
Repairs and
Relines


YOUR lane of traffic, or
completing a turn in front of
you) They would alternate
horn blowing with buzzing
the window down just
enough to stick and arm out
(don't want to loose any of
that AC) and make that
"what the heck is the hold
up" gesture. Me, I already
have both of my windows
down, did I mention I have
no AC, and I am not the
least upset, other than
when in these situations,
you are sure you are going
to die of thirst before you
get to that window, because
you feel trapped. Speaking
of, I was once trapped in a
drive through car wash. It
was self service, pay and
wait for the green light pull
in, stop at the red one. It
got stuck with the big brush
thingy right at the wind-
shield. So, of course as a
Stephen King reader, I just
knew the thing was going to
eat me, car and all, and
understand, there is no
attendant to notice that
something is wrong, and
who do you call? 911
maybe, I mean who wants
to make the newspaper like
that? Eventually the
machine reset and things
went okay.
Back to the snail race
where I was awaiting my
lunch. After an agonizing
and horn sound filled two
minutes, the line started
moving again. I could see
the lady next in line giving
the window attendant what
for, and could actually feel
the person in front- of me
formulating and even nasti-
er insult. When it was final-

ly my turn, I was told they
were sorry of the wait, but
they were short handed
today. Then the attendant
sort of cringed and leaned
away from the glass, await-
ing another onslaught,
which did not come.
"No worries, mate. I'm
sure you are doing the best
you can." (Life lesson #2.
The person they put in
harms way at the drive
through is usually not the
person who caused the
problem, they are safely
hidden from the firing line.
Strive to be the one who
breaks the chain of bad
vibes, it is the easiest way
to make someone's day.) I
was rewarded with a smile.
I was feeling pretty good
about myself as I pulled
away, I mean heck, the
sweat will dry, goanna
smell bad, but, I will take a
shower sometime this
week, boy, those fries sure
smell good, maybe I will
take a hit off those first,
wow those are hot, where is
my straw, big swig of sprite
with no ice .......BAM.
Someone made a horrible
error. No sprite, just soda
water!!! (Life lesson #3
Sometimes Life lesson # 2
must be ignored, someone
must pay) The events that
followed are not fit for pub-
lication.
Other things that come
to my mind as least
favorite. People who think
the left lane belongs only to
them, I mean come on
folks, this is 231, not 1-65.

SECTION 2. FINDINGS. The Board
hereby finds and determines as follows"

A All School Boards in
the State of Florida, including this Board,


have experienced drastic funding reduc-
tions in recent years while operating
expenses continue to rise.

B In the School District of
Calhoun County, currently recognized rev-
enue losses from the 2007-2008 fiscal
year to the 2009-2010 fiscal year are
equivalent to a per pupil decrease of more
than 6.1 percent in total funding, and a
decline of $2,088,869 million in state rev-
enues, and additional reductions are antic-
ipated for the 2010-2011 and subsequent
fiscal years.

C As authorized by
Section 1011.71(3)(b), Florida Statutes,
as amended by Ch. 2009-59, 33, at 35,


Laws of Fla., this Board determined, by an
annual super majority vote, to levy an
additional 0.25 mills for critical operating
needs of the District (or 'Critical Needs
Millage") for the 2009-2010 fiscal year in
an effort to preserve critical operations of
the District while enduring declining state
revenues

lier.

held as provided in Section 1011.71(3)(B),

5101, Reg. Sess. 30 (Fla. 2010), the

has the authority, by an annual super

al super majority vote, to levy the 0.25

tives and public perceptions of possible

"Tea Room" open Pioneer Day


at the Settlement Club House


BY CONNIE EPPERSON, P.P.S.

Saturday, October 16th
is not only Goat Day but
also Pioneer Day at the
Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement. All of the
buildings will be open offer-
ing food, fun and interesting
activities.
This year the
Settlement will host a "Tea
Room" in the wonderful
new Club House, a log
cabin. I wanted to know
more about the cabin; I did
know it served as an educa-
tional facility in Calhoun
County for many years but
that was all I knew. I called
the Calhoun County Board
of Education and was


referred to Mrs. Dona
Dunn who taught school in
Calhoun County for many
years, and even taught in
the log cabin. Mrs. Dunn
told me she loved the years
she spent there and so did
her students. Mrs. Dunn
said her grandmother,
Clara Jones got together
with her girlfriend Kate
Foster and decided to build
the town a community cen-
ter starting with a log cabin.
Neal Land and Timber
donated most of the lum-
ber, merchants did not have
a lot to give in those years.
The ladies just kept harass-
ing the men and the cabin
was completed in 1933, a
beautiful historic landmark


representing the fortitude
of two women and a great
town. Calhoun county's
first community center.
Saturday, October 16,
we will be serving iced tea,
coffee, cake and air condi-
tioning in this log cabin
built in 1933. All donations
will be used for the enrich-
ment of the log cabin club
house.
This building as well as
others may be rented for
your own personal events.
Hope to see you October
16.

As of June 30, 2010,
Wakulla Bank had approxi-

total assets and $386.3 mil-
lion in total deposits.
Centennial Bank did not
pay the FDIC a premium
for the deposits of Wakulla
Bank. In addition to assum-
ing all of the deposits of the.
failed bank, Centennial
Bank agreed to purchase
essentially all of the assets.

brights to the horn blowing
things people ignore. Look,
dude, if you want around
me, GO around me, I am
unaware that you are the
king of all mankind, live
with your "just like the rest
of us" status. Now I am not
talking about the two jerks
that get beside each other
and agree to go ten miles
under the speed limit here,
it should be legal to
"bump" them. I am talking
about when no one else is
around and someone gets
right on your bumper in the
left lane, "their" lane....just
don't get me started.
How about the person
who walks up to you while
you are reading and just
starts yakking away while
you are at lunch, or- on a
- plane- or airport, park
bench etc. Then, five min-
utes into what they find so
interesting, they always
ask, "Oh, were you read-


ing?" "Oh, no, not me, I
was waiting for this fly that
is annoying me to land in
this book then I was going
to slam it shut, now, please,
what were you saying?"
How about that unmen-
tionable person who keeps
putting stuff in the wrong
spot in the kitchen?? Man
I hate that.
Oh, here is another thing
that drives me nuts.
You buy a new (differ-
ent) vehicle, let's say a
Ford truck, man it is so
cool, the last owner took
real good care of it, I mean
the primer even closely
matches the original color.
You have a cd player that
will rattle the coffee cup
three cars away at the
SLOW, HOT drive
through. The driver's seat
will lie back so far that you
just can see the bottom half
of the traffic light, but, you
still need to personalize


your ride. You go down to
the auto parts/ burger stand
to pick out one of those
sticker things to cover up
your back glass, after much
deliberation, and twelve
text messages you make
your mind up. You go out in
the parking lot to install
your statement for all the
read ... ... FORD
TRUCKS.

Again, don't get me
started, Lord help us when
these knuckleheads take
over. I swear, I am going to
get me a big belt buckle,
custom made that
reads.......BELT BUCK-
LE.
I could go on, but I bet
by now you are thinking,
you know what I dislike, it's
those news paper columnist
that think they are so
funny, and smart, and good
looking and.......Don't
even get me started.

/ 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.
