ARREST


Investigation

leads to arrest

in multiple

theft cases
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
An Altha man has been
arrested for allegedly stealing
an all-terrain vehicle and trail-
er from an area home, along
with a trolling motor from
another and a trailer from a
Gulf County citizen.
Peter Cornelius Keet, 35,
has been charged with grand
theft in the case.
According to the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Office, the ini-
tial theft report came in Nov.
12 when a local man advised
his trailer that contained his
friend's four-wheeler had been
stolen from his yard.
The investigation led
authorities to Keet's home
Nov. 25. While Inv. Michael
Bryant of the CCSO and Maj.
Rodney Smith of the BPD
were speaking with him about
the missing ATV and trailer,
they noticed a trolling motor in
plain view and knew one had
recently been reported stolen.
The owner was called and
identified his property, at
which time Keet confessed to
the thefts, along with taking a
boat trailer that belonged to a
Gulf County resident.

arrest
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A two-year-old Altha boy
was airlifted to Tallahassee
Memorial Hospital last
Wednesday, while his grand-
mother was jailed for allegedly
abusing him.
Renee Luddington has been
charged with aggravated child
abuse.
According
to the
Ca 1 houn
County
Sheri ff'' s
Office,
Renee s
daughter left
her two-year-
old son and RENEE LUDDINGTON
young daugh-
ter in her care for an overnight
visit Tuesday. When she called
to check on them, her mom
said they were napping and to
call later. However, when her
mom failed to answer repeated
phone, calls, she called her
aunt, Luddington's sister, who
lives on the adjacent property,
and asked her to check on the
children. The aunt walked over
and found Luddingtop at the
kitchen sink. She then noticed
the two-year-old boy standing
by the pantry without any
clothes. When he turned
around, she realized his eyes
were swollen shut, he was
severely bruised, and he had
bleeding wounds. The aunt
scooped up the child and took
him to her house where she
called 911. The child was air-
lifted to TMH where he "was
placed in pediatric ICtJ. A doc-
tor compared bruising on the
child's forehead to someone
"palming" a basketball and
reported his skull was fractured
due to blunt force trauma.:.He
was improving the next day.
Luddington allegedly told
investigators with the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Office that the
child fell off the porch earlier
that day, but she felt he didn't
need medical attention. It was
noted in their report that she
seemed "under the influence."
The injured child's sister
reportedly told her aunt that
her brother had been in the
"bad room". An extensive
amount of blood was found in a
home office, along with a bro-
ken lamp with blood and hair
evidence. Bloody papers were
found in a burnpile outside.

weeks ago.
Emily's cancer is described
as one of the most aggressive
types for a child anaplastic
astrocytome.
The family will be traveling
back and forth to Shands
Hospital in Gainesville so moth-

CALHOUN-LIBERTY


HOSPITAL

43., Y.



















We were so pleased with Mama's recent stay at Calhoun-
Liberty Hospital. First of all, it's so convenient for me not
having to drive out of town when she's in the hospital. But
even more importantly, we're very pleased and happy with
the wonderful staff. They were very caring and loving to
Mama, so compassionate and so courteous. She felt safe,
secure, and comfortable. She didn't really care to even go
home! They even got her well from her longtime breathing
problems! We're just so happy the hospital is here. And
their many upgrades have it looking so nice, clean and
attractive. I know you and your family also will be pleased
if you use them. Mama sure was.

Blountstown Main Street Tour of Homes Dec. 12


Methodist Church, parsonage



will be showcased on the tour


Blountstown Main Street
will host the 3rd Annual
Christmas Tour of Homes on
Friday, Dec. 12, from 5:30 to
8:30 p.m.
This year's Tour of Homes
begins at the Blountstown
United Methodist Church on
Lake Hilda, 20500 Central
Avenue West (Hwy. 20). Built
in 1941-42, the designer was
one of its members, Corrie
Clark Tucker, who had studied
at Emory University. Tickets
for the Tour of Homes may be
purchased here the night of the
event.
The brick structure is noted
for its beautiful stained glass
windows, magnificent pipe
organs and carillon, which
chimes the hour and half hour.
The church will be decorated in
the traditional red and greens
with a stately ten-foot
Christmas tree decorated with
Chrismon ornaments made by
its members. These white and
gold decorations depict various
Christian symbols.
The second stop is the
Methodist parsonage next door
to the church, at 20480 Central
Avenue West in Blountstown is
the home of Reverend Charles
and Mrs. Shirley Smith, for-
merly of Murfreesboro, TN.
With them is the youngest of
their four children, "Stephen
who is a sophomore at
Blountstown High School. This


brick ranch-style house, built in
the 1970's has a modern interi-
or updated by the talents of
Shirley. The Smiths have cre-
ated an amazing aviary out of
part of the screened in back
porch filled with Charles' collec-
tion of exotic small birds. This
is a must see, especially for the
kids!
Third on our stop is the
Baptist parsonage at 17072
South Main Street (SR 71
South) across the street from
the Baptist Church. This is the
home of Reverend David and
Mrs. Sally Throckmorton, for-
merly of Crystal River, FL.
Sally's green thumb is evident
by the array of ferns and tropi-
cal plants on the expansive
front porch. Both the Methodist
and Baptist homes have won
the Torreya Garden Club 'Yard
of the Month' under the current
owners.
The former home of Pick
and Alberta Hollinger was
bequeathed to the church at her
death in the late 1990's. The
Manse Committee has done a
masterful job of updating this
craftsman style home built circa
1915 by Pick's uncle, Pick
Higgins. It is one of the archi-
tectural gems of Blountstown.
The fourth home is the home
of Gary Shuler, 21748 SR 71
North. Built'ofa dark red brick
it is one of the town's most out-
standing new residences.


Gary's two-story home has a
beautiful swimming pool with a
latticed brick wall surround.
This regal home is often used
for large, community-wide gath-
erings.
The fifth home on the
Christmas Tour is the home of
Glenn and Susan Warren on the
Chipola River, 17533 Chipola
Heights Road (just off CR 275).
In keeping with a family tradi-
tion, Glenn's mother
Margaret's home was on the
2007 Tour. -
Built in the style of a
Spanish hacienda, it has a spec-
tacular view of the Chipola
River, designated one of the
Nation's 'Wild Rivers' for it's
unspoiled natural beauty. The
home is artfully decorated with
antiques and collectibles,
reflecting Susan's knowing eye
for the unique. The guesthouse
will also be open during the
tour. She is the former owner of
the Country Cottage in
Blountstown.
The sixth and final home on
the tour is Longleaf, the
Calhoun County residence of
Robert and Kay Trammell
which is located off Charles
Pippin Road in the Ocheessee
area off of State Road 69 'North.
Robert Lee Norton built this
dignified Victorian ladin 1904
in the Queen Anne stil 'J "
The Trammells moved this
home from Cypress in Jackson


County and had it moved to
some Atkins Family land in
1997. This home is one of the
stateliest homes in the area.

out in holiday finery. Tickets
are $10 per person. Children

River Valley Marketplace creating new business opportunities


J.K. Newsome shares hilarious




story of success at the market


BY J.K. NEWSOME

Blountstown Main Street
has been hosting the River
Valley Marketplace the first
Saturday of every month since
September. The next market is
set for Saturday, Dec. 6, from 8
a.m. to noon in the greenspace
next to Wakulla Bank. Vendor
space is free and open to any-
one selling handmade, home-
made, or homegrown items.
This week, vendor J.K.
Newsome shares the hilarious
story of success he and his
wife, Nancy, have found
through the market.
Nancy and I have wanted to
sell pulled pork, more as a
hobby than to make a killing.
Blountstown Main Street
decided to start a farmers mar-
ket as part of their downtown
development strategy. Good
idea and a great place for us to
start.
We started planning how we
were going to approach it and
first get approval to sell pulled
pork (which the response was
"absolutely") and approval to
use our venture's name, BITE
MY BUTT, which they also
approved. We had an idea to
face our tent with cypress wpod,
with hand cut letters (literally,
as you will soon read) and pig
faces in each corner wearing
bibs. I have posted some pics
and one of them is the original
drawing I did, but the final
design was hand painted by
Jessie, mirror image pigs pick-
ing their teeth. She painted
them on lumber I had pre
painted pig pink (say that 3
times fast).
While cutting out the pigs on
our band saw, the blade kept
coming off the wheels, so I took
the safety cover off and adjusted
the machine, the last step of
which is letting the machine run
a few minutes to warm up the
rubber that covers the wheels,
then set the final tension on the
blade. Well, why waste tirhe
waiting on it to warm up,
-.ffgMtgt'WRONG' while cutting
S'small vy under pigg,'s ear,
carefully watching my fingers
near the working end of the
machine, I pushed my guiding
hand right into the return side
of the blade!!! Yeah, another
trip to the ER. It cut my left
index finger, nicked the bone
and cut thru the tendon. Oh,
and while at the ER filling out
paper work, the fire alarm goes
off and we have to leave!!
Standing outside still filling out
paper work, a lady calls us back
in because it was just a drill.
The guy having the heart attack
was not impressed. Just kid-
ding...he was impressed. Then
my son, Wesley, comes by
because he was setting up his
schedule to ride along on the
ambulance, saw our car, came
in and said "Been wood working'
again, Pops?"
The orthopedic doc I saw a
few days later .wanted me to
wear a splint that reached from
the middle of palm to the tip of
the finger for three weeks, then
shorten it for awhile, because
the tendon would heal back up,
and that darn ER doc should
have put a stitch in the tendon,
too. I had studied up on the ten-
don over the weekend and pret-
ty much knew what he was
going to tell me, but I wore the
splint the rest of that day, then


tossed it in typical male fashion,
cancelled the rest of my
appointments and sweet talked
Nancy into taking the eight
stitches out when I couldn't
stand them any more. It is heal-
ing nicely.
They currently have the
farmers market the first
Saturday of the month. We
missed the first one, but were
hell bent on making the next
one. The sign came together,
tent purchased, butts smoked,
pulled, weighed and bagged. Off
I go. Unfortunately, Nancy had
to work that morning. There
were lots of folks there already
setting up. One of the fire
departments was already set up
with a huge tent (portable car-
port) and offered me use of the
back half which helped me out
tremendously. I had some issues
getting my sign pointed the
right way, but it all worked out
in the end, I sold out.

A man came by and just
loved our sign. He said he was
going to get his camera and
send a picture to his brother in
Michigan. After taking several,
I asked him if he could e-mail
them to me. He said he would
mail me copies, and got my
address, he don't do no e-
mailin.
Near the end of the market,
I was talking to my dad on the
phone and someone tapped my
shoulder and it was the guy who
took the pictures. He handed
me an envelope. He had
already gone to the drug store
and made me copies. When I
got off the phone I saw he had
written "bite me" on the enve-
lope and had drawn a smiley
face, so that was cool.
I nearly had an international
incident while there. A woman
from Cuba came by. There is no:,
electricity at the market so I
took my LP burner and a pot to
boil water and set the crock
from my crock pot in it to warm
samples of the pulled pork
which I was selling in iced down
two pound bags. Wdrkeddlike A
champ. I can't tell you how
many folks took a small sample,
said it was good and walked
away. Then I just waited, oh 2-
4 minutes, till the after taste
kicked in, and they would come
back and say, "Give me a bag of
that!"
Anyway, back to the Cuban
butt crisis. She tasted it and, in
broken English, asked me about
the pork, how it's made, is it
regional or national, etc. She
then said she would be back to
buy some later. She did.....after
I sold out. In America, "I'll be
back" is often polite for "no".
Apparently in Cuba, it is like a
contract. She was not happy
that I did not believe her, and it
did seem to hurt her feelings, so
I felt bad, told her to come back
next month, but she said she
would be back in Miami. She
asked if there was any place in
town she could buy some. I sent
her to the only place I thought
might. Fifteen minutes later she
was back...they don't sell it. She
offered to buy what was left in
the crock. I sold her half.
(Wesley had gone to the store to
get a loaf of bread, if the ladies
in the other end of the tent did-
n't get a samich from that pork
they had smelled all morning, I
would not get out alive.) The
Cuban lady told me she had


J.K. Newsome (pictured) and his wife, Nancy, have found success
at the River Valley Marketplace with their pulled pork booth.


eaten pork all over the world,
and mine was the best, so now I
felt good. I wish I would have
gotten her address, I would
have packed some in dry ice
and sent it.
So that was my market day,
only 8-12 pm on a Chamber of
Commerce weather day. They
intend on adding a second
venue across the street, a block
down at another green space, so


*we are thinking of adding a sec-
ond tent for Nancy.....Bite my
butt...too. We would have to
communicate with each other
with radios, so, we would need
cool "handles" like Cheek 1 and
Cheek 2. We only have one
spare bottle of LP so, we would
need Wesley to be the runner,
you know, pass the gas between
the cheeks. Any ideas? Take a
crack at it.


Market open Saturday


The River Valley
Marketplace is open the first
Saturday of every month from
8 a.m. to'noon. The next date
for the market is Saturday,
Dec. 6, in the.greenspace next
to Wakulla Bank.

tured this month are fresh
Christmas trees, garlands,
and handmade stockings.

ACC CHAMPION-SHIP
Boston College vs. Virginia Tech (at Tampa, Fla.)





THE BIRS.


Illustration c 2008 Bruce Plante (lanteink.com)


Deja vu all over again


i;.. a four-game winning streak, Atlantic Division
..I. ,r.pion Boston College is looking to earn its first
H. ,1, to a BCS bowl with a victory over Coastal
Division champion Virginia Tech in Saturday's ACC
Championship Game at Raymond James Stadium in
Tampa.
With Saturday's contest marking the fourth showdown
between the two former Big East conference rivals since
Oct. 25, 2007, both teams should know exactly what to
expect. Boston College has won three of the past four
meetings, but the lone loss during that stretch cost the
Eagles the 2007 conference championship and a spot in
the Orange Bowl.
For Jeff Jagodzinski's squad to pull out a victory, it
must avoid the mistakes it made in a 28-23 victory at the
Hokies' Lane Stadium on Oct. 18. Virginia Tech scored on
two interception returns and blocked a 39-yard field-goal
attempt by Steve Aponavicius.
The Hokies got 200 yards of total offense from quar-
terback Tyrod Taylor in the previous meeting, but they
yielded a punt return for a touchdown and were 5-for-17
on third-down conversion attempts. They also put togeth-
er a pair of 12-play drives in the second half that resulted
in two field goals by Dustin Keys.
While the Eagles have seen more than their share of
Taylor, Virginia Tech will be dealing with a relative
unknown in Boston College redshirt-freshman quarter-
back Dominique Davis. Starting for the injured Chris
Crane, Davis, who has appeared in four games this sea-
son, threw for 134 yards with two touchdowns and no
interceptions on 12-of-24 passing in this past week's 28-21
win over Maryland.
"(Davis) managed the game," Jagodzinski said follow-
ing the Maryland game. "We didn't have a pick. We didn't
have any turnovers. I think if you don't have turnovers
and you play solid defense, then I think you've always got
a chance to win."
Eagles freshman running back Josh Haden enters the
game with 798 rushing yards. He has really come into his
own during the past four games, carrying the ball at least
23 times for at least 118 yards in wins over Notre Dame,
Florida State and Maryland.
Despite Haden's recent success, Boston College is far
from an offensive juggernaut. The Eagles rank 56th
nationally in rushing yards per game, 99th in passing
yards per game and 102nd in passing efficiency.
Instead, defense has been the key to a season that
many thought would be a rebuilding year with vaunted
quarterback Matt Ryan graduating and departing for the
NFI.'s-Atlanta Falcons.
Boston College ranks seventh nationally in rushing
defense, eighth in total defense and 14th in scoring
defense. The Eagles, who have scored eight non-offensive
touchdowns this season, have intercepted a nation-best 25
passes this season.
The outcome of the game could be decided by how
well Virginia Tech running back Darren Evans does
against the Eagles' defense. Evans, who ranks third in the
ACC with an average of 83.2 rushing yards per game, was
held to 27 yards on 17 carries in the previous meeting
between the two schools.
The inability of either Sean Glennon or Taylor to step
up and become the team's leader has affected the Hokies
from the first day of fall workouts. Head coach Frank
Beamer's original plan was to use Glennon and redshirt
Taylor this season, but Taylor returned to action follow-


ing a 27-22 upset loss to East Carolina in the season open-
er.
Taylor currently ranks ninth in the conference in total
offense per game and 11th in passing efficiency, while
Glennon is seventh in passing efficiency and 16th in total
offense. Complicating matters for Virginia Tech's passing
game this season has been an offensive line that yields a
conference-worst 3.1 sacks per game. None of the team's
wide receivers had caught a scoring pass prior to this
year.
Considering how much success Glennon had in last
year's 30-16 win over the Eagles in the ACC title game,
Beamer may want to consider giving him extended play-
ing time on Saturday. Glennon threw for 174 yards with
three touchdowns and one interception on 18-of-27 pass-
ing enroute to winning Most Valuable Player.honors..
An added dimension to the Virginia Tech offense has
been the "Wild Turkey formation." Similar to the way
Arkansas used running back Darren McFadden in 2006
and 2007, starting tight end Greg Boone has taken 19
direct snaps from center and run for 61 yards this season.
Boston College displayed a little deception of its own
in the win over Maryland. Billy Flutie, the nephew of for-
mer Eagles great and 1984 Heisman Trophy winner Doug
Flutie, threw a 9-yard touchdown pass off a fake field goal
with 8:38 remaining in the third quarter.
Virginia Tech defensive back Victor "Macho" Harris,
who scored on a 55-yard interception return against
Boston College and notched two picks in a 14-3 win over
Duke on Nov. 22, has registered 15 interceptions during
the past three years. The Hokies ranks sixth nationally in
total defense, 19th in rushing defense, sixth in pass
defense and 20th in turnover margin.
After the first game against Virginia Tech, Crane
talked about Harris' ability to jump routes and bait op'pos-
ing signal-callers. Dorian Porch confused Virginia quar-
terback Marc Verica and collected his team's 14th inter-
ception late in this past week's 17-14 triumph.
Special teams play has been the secret to Virginia
Tech's success since Beamer returned to his alma mater
in 1987. However, a blocked punt and Rich Gunnell's 65-
yard punt return were the differences in losses to East
Carolina and Boston College.
Boston College ranks first in the conference with a
punt return average of 11.5 yards, but the Eagles rank
11th in the conference in net punting and 12th in kickoff
coverage and kickoff returns. Aponavicius, a former
walk-on who joined the team in the middle of the 2006
season, has converted 13 of his 20 field-goal attempts this
season'
Aponavicius' counterpart, Virginia Tech senior Dustin
Keys, has made 20 of his 25 field-goal attempts and was
named a semifinalist for the 2008 Lou Groza Award. The
Hokies rank last in the conference in net punting, fifth in
kickoff coverage, fourth in punt return average and
eighth in kickoff returns.
The two teams are the least-penalized teams in the
conference. The Hokies, whose opponents average 56.2
yards in penalties per game, have lost just 442 yards on
flags, and Boston College is averaging 37.3 yards in penal-
ties per game.
Records: Boston College 9-3 (5-3 ACC Atlantic);
Virginia Tech 8-4 (5-3 ACC Coastal). Coaches: Boston
College's Jeff Jagodzinski (20-6); Virginia Tech's Frank
Beamer (217-112-4). Series: Virginia Tech leads 10-6.
Kickoff: 1 p.m. ET Saturday. TV: ABC.


il6TON COLL. The Eagles held
Maryland's rushing
attack to six yards on 26 carries and
scored their eighth non-offensive
touchdown of the season in. this past
Saturday's 28-21 win over the Terrapins.
Linebacker Robert Francois'
interception return for touchdown put
Boston College in a tie with Alabama
and Kansas State for most non-offensive
touchdowns by an NCAA Football Bowl
Subdivision team.
niHSON Running back James
Davis ran for 91 yards and
scored three touchdowns as the Tigers
whipped South Carolina 31-14 in the
100th consecutive meeting between the
state rivals. Davis needs one more
touchdown to tie Tra.vis Zachery's
school record of 50 career touchdowns,
which was set in 2001. With 3,855
rushing yards, Davis is 91 yards shy of
Raymond Priester's all-time Clemson
record.
llMKE Playing his final collegiate
game, senior linebacker
Michael TauiUili had a career-best 20
tackles an interception in this past
week's 28-20 loss to North Carolina.
Tauiliili, who is the first Duke player in
more than five years to tally 20 tackles
in a game, ends his career as the fourth-
leading tackler in program history with
434 stops.
W IDORIDA ST. The Seminoles suffered
their worst home loss to
state-rival Florida this past Saturday
with a 45-15 setback at Doak Campbell
Stadium. Florida State engineered an
eight-play, 58-yard touchdown drive
capped by Jermaine Thomas' 4-yard
run with 7:43 left in the third quarter
that was the Seminoles' first touchdown
in a span of 111 minutes, 44 seconds
against the Gators.
IIfCH Jonathan Dwyer and
Roddy Jones combined for
357 rushing yards in the Yellow Jackets'
45-42 victory over Georgia. Eddie Lee
Ivery and Ray Friday set the school
record of 471 rushing yards by a Georgia
Tech duo in 1978 against Air Force.
M AyM U Wide receiver Torrey
Smith had eight
receptions for a career-high 115 yards
and collected 130 yards on five kickoff
returns in this past week's 28-21 loss to
Boston College. Smith, whose 990
kickoff return yards rank second on the
ACC's single-season list, needs 76 more
kickoff return yards to break former
Duke standout Tijan Redmond's 13-
year-old conference record.
p j Junior tight end Dedrick
Epps had four catches for a
career-high 101 yards, including a 69-
yard touchdown, in the Hurricanes' 38-
28 loss to N.C. State. Epps is the first
Miami player with more than 100
receiving yards in a game this season.
H 0iA |ISIA Hakeem Nicks caught

over Virginia. With his fourth 100-yard
rushing game, Taylor tied Michael Vick
for second place on the school's list for
100-yard rushing games by a QB.
I KE FOREST With a fourth-quarter
interception, Wake
Forest senior Alphonso Smith tied
former North Carolina standout Dre'
Bly's conference record of 20 career

A battle of the titans


." T may be the most significant football game
3i 1 ,:, jit the Georgia Dome since Super Bowl XXXIV
,,,' _,, top-ranked Alabama and Florida will battle
Saturday afternoon for the Southeastern Conference
championship and a spot in the BCS National
Championship Game.
The matchup will mark the 39th time since the incep-
tion of the Associated Press poll that the No. 1 and No. 2
teams in the country have faced each other. However, it
marks the first time that it has happened in a conference
championship game.
With tradition-rich Alabama looking to wrap up its first
perfect season since the national championship campaign
in 1992, and the Gators trying to maintain the SEC
dominance that they have enjoyed for the better part of the
last two decades, here is how Saturday's game should
break down:
Florida has the edge when it comes to quarterback
play, but Alabama signal-caller John Parker Wilson's play
this season has reminded some of former Tide quarter-
back Jay Barker. Barker, whose grit and determination
made up for any physical shortcomings he may have had,
led Alabama to the 1992 national title and is the all-time
winningest quarterback in school history with a record of
35-2-1.
Florida's Tim Tebow, the reigning Heisman Trophy
winner, ranks second in the conference in total offense
per game and fifth nationally in passing efficiency. While
he has accounted for 37 total touchdowns this season,
Tebow has received more help from his supporting cast
this season than he did last year.
A stable of running backs that includes Chris Rainey,
Jeffrey Demps and Southern California transfer
Emmanuel Moody makes Florida the conference's top
rushing team with an average of237.1 yards per game.
Head coach Urban Meyer said that his team has shown a
renewed commitment to the running game since its lone
loss, a 31-30 setback to Mississippi on Sept 27.
"I think from that point on, we've developed a legiti-
mate run game where it wasn't just turn right, turn left,"
Meyer said during Sunday's press conference. "It was get-
ting our running backs involved. And the maturity of true
running backs that weren't here last year began to show
between Rainey and Demps."
One question mark for the Gators head i nto this
game is the health of junior Percy Harvin, who is the
team's second-leading rusher and leading receiver.
Harvin injured his ankle in this past week's 45-15 win
over state-rival Florida State.
Wilson has thrown for 1,909 yards with nine touch-
downs and five interceptions on 157-of-268 passing this
season. In this past week's 36-0 win over Auburn, he
threw his first touchdown pass since a 24-20 win over
Mississippi on Oct. 18.
Wilson has an arm and he can keep defenses honest
with his scrambling ability, but his main priorities are to
avoid mistakes and hand the ball to Alabama's vaunted
running backs. Glen Coffee ranks third in the conference
with an average of 102.9 rushing yards per game and the
combination of Mark Ingram and Roy Upchurch averages
almost 92 rushing yards per game.
Alabama's offensive line, which is led by tackle Andre
Smith and center Antoine Caldwell, may just be the
nation's best. The Crimson Tide makes it no secret that


they like to run the ball, and this extremely large group
has dominated the line of scrimmage this season.
"We just feel like they're not really secretive about
what they're trying to do," Meyer said. "They're going to
try to pound you and they have the personnel to do it. It's
not so much the running; it's the personnel behind that
run game."
Alabama's defense has the statistical advantage, but
both units have been exceptional this season.
The Crimson 'ide, who have pitched two shutouts
during the past four games andr held six other teams to 14
points or fewer this season, ranks second nationally
against the run, third in total defense and third in points
allowed.
However, Alabama's second-year head coach, Nick
Saban, is quick to point out that his team has not faced
someone of Tebow's caliber.
"I don't really think that there's anybody that I've ever.
faced that's quite like him," Saban said. "He creates the
issues that he creates relative to his size, toughness, and
ability as a runner and a passer."
Florida's defense is not that far behind Alabama in the
statistics. The Gators rank 12th nationally against the run,
second in pass-efficiency defense, seventh in total defense
and fourth in scoring defense.
Florida has intercepted a league-best 23 passes this
season and returned five of them for touchdowns. Its
turnover margin of plus-21 leads the nation and oppo-
nents have only scored 14 touchdowns on 31 trips inside
the Gators' 20.
With Alabama leading the conference with average
time of possession of 32:32, it's important that Florida
limit any threat with timely stops. Tackling Alabama's ball
carriers in their own backfield may prove to be problem-
atic for a unit that ranks ninth in the conference with an
average of 5.50 tackles for loss per game.
Either team is capable of winning the special teams
battle, which may just decide the winner.
Florida has been outstanding on special teams since
having a crucial extra point blocked in the loss to
Mississippi. Kicker Jonathan Phillips is the conference's
leading scorer and has converted all 10 of his field goal
attempts this season, while Brandon James ranks second
and fifth, respectively, in punt return and kickoff return
average.
As they showed in a 63-5 win over Kentucky, the
Gators also have a knack for blocking kicks.
Alabama will counter James with Javier Arenas. Arenas
averages 22.6 yards per kickoff return and has returned
two punts to the end zone, including one that helped the
Crimson Tide pull away and register a 32-7 win over
Mississippi State.
Alabama's kickoff numbers leave a little to be desired
as it ranks seventh in the conference in kickoff coverage
and 70th nationally in net punting.
When two teams are evenly matched, penalties could
play a role in the outcome. Alabama averages a confer-
ence-low 35.2 yards in penalties, while Florida ranks 11th
in the SEC with an average of 59.4 penalty yards.
Records: Alabama 12-0 (8-0 SEC West); Florida 11-1
(7-1 SEC East). Coaches: Alabama's Nick Saban
(11048-1); Florida's Urban Meyer (81-17). Series:
Alabama leads 21-13. Kickoff: 4 p.m. ET Saturday. TV:
CBS.

foeRIDA The Gators, who are ranked
second in the AP poll and
fourth in the BCS, extended their
winning streak over state-rival Florida
State to five games with a 45-15 victory
this past Saturday. The 30-point margin
of victory was the largest by a Florida

visiting Florida team in the series.
EIOORIA Running for 409 yards,
. Georgia Tech snapped a
seven-game losing streak to Georgia
with this past Saturday's 45-42 victory.
The 409 rushing yards were tihe most
yielded by a Georgia team since 1994,
when Vanderbilt ran for 415 yards. The
Yellow Jackets' 19 yards on 1-of-6
passing were the fewest by a Georgia
opponent since Cal State Fullerton had 0
yards on 0O-of-4 passing in 1992.
KENTUCKY Senior punter/kicker Tim
Masthay earned first-

2002. True freshman quarterback
Jordan Jefferson threw for 143 yards
on 9-of-21 passing and rushed for 50
yards on 19 carries in the one-point loss
to Arkansas. Jefferson's 19 carries were
the most by a LSU quarterback in a
single game since Marcus Randall had

IIm SISSIPPI The Rebels set two
school records by
registering 11 sacks and holding
Mississippi State to minus-51 rushing

42 games, which ranks as the longest
streak in the SEC.
|IIIIIESSEE The Volunteers sent head
coach Phillip Fulmer off
in style by extending the nation's
longest active winning streak by one
team over another to 24 games with this
past Saturday's 28-10 win over

J. V. Wildcats celebrate




coach's debut with 'W


GRACEVILLE, NOVEM-
BER 24-There were many
things on our list that we were
thankful for on Thanksgiving
Day.
Last Monday, the Altha
Wildcats junior varsity boys
basketball team added another
item to their first year coach's
Thanksgiving Day list. In his
coaching debut, Altha alumnus
Nathan Castaneda was given a
thrilling 28-26 win over the
Graceville Tigers.
In the season opener for both
teams, the Wildcats and the
Tigers began the third quarter
tied 13-13. They traded leads
throughout the period until
Altha's point guard Will Rogers
banked a running jump shot
high off the glass to give the
Wildcats a 21-20 lead as time
expired.
Rogers tacked on five more
points in the final period in the
form of a field goal and a 3-
pointer. Jacob Warner added a
field goal to give Altha their 28-
26 lead. Graceville had a
chance to win as they put up a
3-pointer in the final seconds
but it bounced off the back iron
and fell harmlessly to the floor
as the final buzzer sounded.
Graceville edged the
Wildcats in the field goal
department shooting 50% (12
of 24) to the Altha's 47% (9 of
19). The Tigers made 67% (2
of 3) of their free throws while
the Wildcats canned 50% (4 of
8). Altha made up the differ-
ence with their 3-point shoot-
ing, canning 25% (2 of 8) while
the Tigers failed to deliver on
their 4 attempts.
Leading the Wildcats in
scoring was Will Rogers with 10
points (including a 3-pointer)
along with a team leading 5

BMS Lady Tigers' record 8-1



after wins over Wewa, St. Joe


BY COACH MATTHEW NICHOLS

The Blountstown Middle
School girls basketball team
improved their record to 8-1.
On November 18th, the
Lady Tigers traveled to Wewa
to face the Gators. They added
another win to their record by a
score of 34-12. We started out
a little sluggish, but overall I
was pleased with the way we
played.
The Lady Tigers were led in
scoring by Alexis Speights with
12 points. She was followed by
Demeca Martin with 10 points.
Demeca also converted all
three of her free throw
attempts. Jayla Brigham con-
tributed with 8 points and
Adrienne Santillus provided a
spark off the bench with 4
points.
On November 20th the Lady
Tigers again traveled to Gulf
County to face the Port St. Joe
Sharks. St Joe is a very athlet-
ic team that is quick and plays


good defense. They had
improved tremendously since
the first time we played them.
The first time we faced them
we beat them 31-11. This time
we were able to escape with a
17-9 win. This was a very
intense ballgame. They played
great halfcourt defense the
whole ballgame. They even


tried to put a halfcourt press on
us which we hadn't seen against
any other team, but our girls
did a great job of spreading the
floor and passing through it. I
was very proud of them. Alexis
Speights led all scorers with 9
points and Demeca Martin con-

k Committee


searching for golden agers

Calhoun County's Heritage Book Committee wishes to
have your assistance in compiling a special section of our
forth-coming history of Calhoun County.
The first part is about citizens who are now living who are
90 years of age or older. Please give the person's full name.
and date of birth. Be sure to include their maiden name and
all married names for the ladies. If the person lived to be 90
'years of age or older-and is now deceased, please give ihe full-
name, date of birth '~-Ld date of death.
Calhoun County couples who are or were married for 50
years or more form another special section in our book.
Please give the full names of the bride and the groom, dates
of birth for each, and dates of death if applicable. Give the
date the marriage took place and the number of children born
to this special couple.
Please type or hand print clearly all names and dates. Use
the following format for the dates: month, day and year. An
example is: Jan. 1. 1896. Be sure that you sign and print
your own name as sumitteer and give your telephone number
for verification purposes.
We need a photograph of the person(si that we are so very
proud to be able to honor in this special way. It does not have
to be one that was taken when they were whatever ag6, it can
be one when they were younger. On the 50th wedding
anniversary photograph it may be when they celebrated that
glorious occasion or when they first got married or somewhere
in between, it is just up to you. It will be best if you do not
write on the back of the photo itself, use a label or a Post-it-
Note as sometimes when it is scanned the print will show
through the paper. If you have a photograph that you would
like to be scanned to be used for the book, or if you need assis-
tance with your information or story please feel free to ask.

Calhoun County's history is being told through a heritage book currently being put together with plans for pub-
lication in the summer of 2009. Here is one of the stories that will be included in the book.


SUBMITTED BY MARY ANN
FLOWERS

The two terms of Circuit
Court were arranged for
the spring and fall of the
year. The Courthouse
could not be heated or
cooled.
H. V McClellan was the
Perry Mason of the
Courthouse. His ability to
select friendly jurors wvas
uncanny. He knew each
summoned perspective
likes and dislikes. He usu-
ally defended the indigent
and alcoholic many times
without pay. The public
defender law was not
allowed in Florida unless a
person was on trial for their
life.
One of the best known
and well-liked courthouse
employees was the janitor,
Uncle Jug (pronounced
Juug) Johnson. Mr.
Johnson, as a young man
and was considered the
best driver of log cart oxen
in the county. He was
named the jailer in 1925,
but later became the court-
house custodian.
Uncle Jug knew more
people in the county than
any other person. He was
a one-man welfare team.
During the Depression
years many unfortunate
people relied upon Uncle


Stories from the

Courthouse, 1937:

Uncle Jug Johnson
By Mary Ann Flowers


Jug to meet their 'needs.
He made taking up collec-
tions an art, many times
giving' from his small
income to help a person in
a crisis.
In 1936, Uncle Jug was
persuaded to announce and
run for sheriff. It was an


unfortunate move for the
aged caretaker. His age
proved too much of a hand-
icap and the office of sheriff
was a dangerous one at
that time. He ran a good
race, but failed to get elect-
ed.
The majority of the


County Commission prom-
ised the position of janitor
to another person, who was
to begin his duties on Jan.
1, 1907. The selected per-
son failed to appear at the
appointed time and the
courthouse officials faced
several freezing days and
had to go to the wood yard
and buy the firewood and
make their own fires in the
open office fireplaces.
When the county com-
mission met in regular ses-
sion, an irate group of
county officers complained
about the lack of heat. A
messenger, some say a
deputy sheriff, was dis-
patched to find Uncle Jug
and ask him to meet with
the county board. Uncle
Jug was offered a raise in
salary to $40 per month,
which he accepted and
good feelings were once
again established in the
Courthouse.
On real cold mornings
county officials entered
their various offices to be
greeted by a roaring fire,
which Uncle Jug had built
an hour ahead of opening
time.
