BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A call about a suspicious person led
to the arrest of a Liberty County man
on multiple charges Friday.
Scott Oliver Howell was arrested for
trafficking in hydrocodone, possession
of a controlled substance with intent to
sell, possession of drug paraphernalia,
and carrying a concealed weapon.
Dep. Todd Wheetley responded to
the BP Station in Bristol just after 11
a.m. where he found Howell who
appeared to be passed out in his truck.
He immediately spotted an electronic
scale, and after noticing suspicious
behavior, received permission to do a
search. A plastic bag of meth was found
in Howell's mouth and shirt .pocket. A
pipe with meth residue was recovered,
along with 18 hydrocodone pills and
$460 in cash.
Howell was booked into the Liberty
County Jail. FHP Trooper Jason King
and LCSO Lt. Dussia Shuler assisted.

Main Street Christmas Tour




of Homes set for Friday night


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' col-
lection 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 of a 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
gatherings.
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 tradition, Glenn's moth-
er 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.

CALHOUN-LIBERTY


HOSPITAL
























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 Th7ey 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.

BY RON GILLIARD
Administrator

From the board, staff, and physi-
cians of Calhoun-Liberty Hospital,
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and
Happy New Year!
We feel we've been very blessed in
2008 and also want to thank the com-
munity for responding to our many
efforts to improve the hospital. We're
proud of our progress but we'll contin-
ue to work hard to further earn your
trust, confidence and respect. We hope
that will lead to your continued and
increased use of our services.
This past year brought many posi-
tive changes to the hospital. We've
improved the appearance in many
ways. We've also worked hard on
improving the courtesy and compassion
of the care we provide. I feel we've
also improved significantly in this area.
We've gotten a lot of new equipment
and have even more on the way. By,
the end of the year we hope to have our
new beds in and lots of new diagnostic
equipment. Radiology and pharmacy
both will get some state-of-the art
machines to help us serve you better.
Even our heating and air conditioning
equipment will be updated.
We're creating a new registration
area in our front lobby. It should also be
finished by the end of the year and
improve our flow of patients in this
busy area. It will also improve the pri-
vacy for our patients. We're doing this
work with the wonderful donations
we've recently received. Such dona-
tions are allowing us to accomplish
many renovations as well as purchase
even more new equipment.
Our "Adopt-a-Room" program con-
tinues to decorate and upgrade our
inpatient rooms and other areas. For
example, we now have a beautiful new
Prayer Room thanks to the Chamber of
Commerce Board. The first two inpa-

I'll be glad to show them to anyone
interested in adopting!
We'll begin a new clinic soon to per-
form echocardiograms in the hospital.
This will be yet another key diagnostic
test that you can do here and not have
to drive out of town. This will save you
time and gas! A friend of mine recent-
ly spent all afternoon going to Panama
City for this same test. This will be
done with our fancy new ultrasound
machine that should. be in by January.
We're also expanding our
Emergency Room to make it more effi-
cient as well. We average almost 750
patients per month in this busy area!
We've been very pleased with the ER
group of physicians that joined us a
year ago.
They've been a key part of our total
turnaround. They are very good and
compassionate doctors. And we're
receiving lots of compliments for the
care being provided in the ER by our
staff. This was not always the case so
I'm very proud of this hard working
group.


But I'm very proud of ALL the hos-
pital staff. We recently received an
amazing "grade" from the annul licen-
sure survey from the state. They found
no "write-ups" and this was due direct-
ly to the hard work, dedication, and
professionalism of our staff. I've been
through many inspections but never
one that gave absolutely no findings!
So, we're proud of our progress but
again, will continue to work hard to
make things even better. If you would
like an update on the many things we
have going on, and even more to come,
give me a call at 674-54,11, ext 206. I'll
be happy to give you a personal tour,
discuss all of the above or anything else
about the hospital.
Maybe you would like to know more
about how you can make a donation to
the hospital or adopt an area. Some
folks are now donating in memory of
deceased friends or relatives. We of
course, notify the family of this kind act
as well as provide information for tax
purposes since we're a "not-for-profit"
organization. This is a great time of
year to honor loved ones this way also.
It can make a unique Christmas gift!
Again, from all of us at Calhoun-
Liberty Hospital, have a blessed holi-
day season and a Happy New Year!

TWO LIBERTY COUNTY
STANDOUTS PLAY IN
SNAPPER BOWL
Two players, from Liberty
County's recreational football
league participated in the 40th
annual Snapper Bowl held in
Panama City over
Thanksgiving weekend.
The event features teams
from across the United States
from as far as California and is
a double elimination tourna-
ment over a three day period.
JJ House and William Hayes
played big-parts in their team's
win in the annual event. Both
played for the Callaway
Drillers, which was an all-star
team comprised of players from
around the area.
The Drillers played three
games on their way to winning
the championship in the 10 yr
old and under division. In the
first game the Drillers shut out
the Henderson Warriors from
Nashville, TN. Hayes rushed
for 80 yards on 6 carries and
scored one touchdown. House
also had a big game, with 135
yards on 9 carries and a two-
point conversion. The duo
combined for 12 tackles in the
shutout. Game 2 saw the
Drillers in action against the


North Henry, GA Blue Devils.
House rushed for 100 yards
and scored a touchdown while
Hayes had 50 yards and
punched in two 2-point conver-
sions on the way to an 18-6 win.
The Callaway team marched
into the championship game
against the Hendersonville, LA
Dawgs. The Drillers took care
of business, winning 28-6.
House rushed for 80 yards
while Hayes added 45 yards on
the ground. The Bristol natives
played excellent defense in the
tournament combining for
numerous tackles and big plays.
The Liberty County Recreation
Department would like to con-
gratulate these boys on a job
well done in representing our
county and being a part of
another Championship team!

BMS Lady Tigers' record at 9-1;


advance to conference playoffs


BY COACH MATTHEW NICHOLS

The Blountstown Middle
School Lady Tigers extended
their record to 9-1 after defeat-
ing Tolar in an intense overtime
game by a score of 25-23. The
win avenged the Tigers' only
loss which came at the hands of
the Bulldogs earlier in the sea-
son.
We jumped out to an early
9-2 lead in the first and held a
13-7 lead at halftime. In the
2nd half Tolar was able close
the gap and eventually go up by
3 with a minute and a half to
go. We hadn't scored in min-
utes, but with their backs
against the wall the Lady
Tigers responded. We hit the
front end of a one-and-one,
which brought us within 2, and
then with 7 seconds left Alexis
Speights was fouled. Having to
make 2 free throws with the


game on the line is tough at any
level, but Alexis stepped to the
line and hit two clutch free
throws to send the game to
overtime. With the momen-
tum, the Lady Tigers went on
to win 25-23 in overtime. I
wish we would not have given
up the lead, but I was very
proud of our girls for the heart
and total team effort they
showed to win the ballgame.
We had 2 starters go out in the
fourth quarter. One fouled out
and the other left the game
with an injury almost the same
time we went down 3. They
did a good job of playing
through adversity to win
against a tough Tolar team.
Hopefully, the Tigers will carry
this intensity over to their next
game.
The Tigers were led in scor-
ing by Alexis Speights with 9
points. Demeca Martin added


6 points and Jackie Dudley fol-
lowed her with 4. Jayla
Brigham, Tiaisha Scott, and
Davina Fountain all con-
tributed 2 points.
The Lady Tigers were also
able to come away with a 5-2
victory in the fifth quarter.
Kassie Wood and Adrienne
Santillus both contributed 2
points apiece and Jordan
Griffin chipped in a free throw.
The Lady Tigers advanced
to the conference playoffs
which was set to be hosted by
Tolar, on Tuesday against Port
St. Joe (details unavailable at
press time). If the Tigers were
able to defeat the Sharks they
will face the winner of Tolar /
Franklin County on Thursday
at 3:00 central time.
Come support the BMS
Lady Tigers!

BMS J.V. Tigers win


final game of season


BY COACH JASON WHITE

The JV Tigers won their
final game of the season defeat-
ing Toblar 29-6. J.P Leonard
started off the final game by
tipping the jump ball to
Andrew Bennett. Bennett was
the leading scorer for the game
with 8 points. David Deveaux
had his best game of the season
with 7 points, Dimitri Simmons
and Ased Farooqui had 6 points
each and J.P Leonard 'had 2
points.
The guys have had a great
season. They have continued
to improve with each game. As
a team they have played very
unselfish ball. They have


shown great passing skills as
they worked the ball around
looking for open shots. Bennett
and Peterson have shown
incredible quickness with
numerous steals and fast
breaks in their games.
Simmons has displayed out-
standing rebounding abilities
on both ends of the court
throughout the season. The
. team has also exhibited fantas-
tic outside shooting ability from
3-point range.

This is a very talented group
of young men who display great
potential. The future of Tiger
basketball looks good for many
years to come!

graders enjoy

writing camp

Blountstown Elementary
School and the Calhoun
County Public Library recently
completed their annual Fourth
Grade Writing Camp.
Fourth grade students had
the opportunity to attend this
camp to sharpen up their writ-
ing skills. The students attend-
ed two days a week after
school. Students rode the bus
to the library and began the
afternoon with a snack. The
students wrote stories, papers,
poems, and even authored
their own books. Kids walked
in and authors walked out!
This was an exciting time for
both students and teachers.
Writing was brought to life and
both students and teachers
enjoyed this time. The students
will be reading their books to
the younger students at school
and presenting them to parents
at the upcoming family reading
nights.

featured on

a billboard
Hunter Chason, Kayla
Bristow and Klara Carillo are
6th grade students at Altha
School. Last year in Mrs.
Rehberg's science class, they
participated in a poster contest
sponsored by Dr. Santine
Cuccio and the Chipola College
Groundwater Team. They
were to create a poster describ-
ing what is happening to our
Florida Aquifers and how we
should keep our drinking water
clean. They wanted to show
how polluting our Florida
Aquifers can affect our drink-
ing water and the environ-
ment.
These students' poster was
chosen to be on a billboard in
downtown Marianna next to
Pizza Hut.

ELEANOR REBECCA
"LOLO" TOMLINSON
Eleanor Rebecca "Lolo"
Tomlinson, 93, passed away
Monday, December 1, 2008, in
Blountstown, Florida.
Eleanor was born Eleanor
Rebecca Woodham on January


-7


15, 1915, in
Bishopville,
South Carolina,
the oldest child
of Sullivan
M a r c o
Woodham and
Lalla Rooke
(Wood ham)
Woodham. Her


paternal grandparents were
Asa Edward Woodham and Ara
Leila (Smith) Woodham. Her
maternal grandparents were
Charles Welborn Woodham and
Nancy Elaine "Laney"
(Hearon) Woodham.
Eleanor was a graduate of
Bishopville High School and a
1937 graduate of Coker College
in Hartsville, South Carolina,
where she earned a Bachelor of
Arts in music. Though small in
stature, she attacked the key-
board with such great skill,
vigor and finesse that she won
numerous awards as a concert
pianist. She taught music in the
Manning, South Carolina
school system before marrying
Ben Tomlinson of Olanta,
South Carolina. They made
their home in Georgetown,
South Carolina, where she per-
formed at many weddings and
other functions. She also taught
piano lessons from their home,
served as organist for the First
Baptist Church in Georgetown,
and was active in the
Georgetown Concert
Association. She was modern
and progressive in her young
adulthood, wearing slacks and
shorts before they were the
popular attire for young mar-
ried ladies. In 1952 Eleanor,
Ben and their two children
moved to Tallahassee, Florida,
where she continued giving pri-
vate piano and organ lessons
until her music career was cut
short by a debilitating illness.
She was loved and respected by
her friends and neighbors and is
remembered as a gentle, sweet
and kind friend. She was a life
long Christian and frequently
said, "I pray to the Master." Her
faith was always strong and
never failed throughout her
journey through life.
She lived comfortably for
many years with loving care by
Ruby Varnum in Bristol,
Florida. In early 2008, she was

Community pulls together




to save BFD's "Engine 2"


The community came out in full force Saturday to support the
Blountstown Fire Department's effort to rescue Engine 2. Connie's
Kitchen downtown allowed firefighters to take over her restaurant for
the benefit. Engine 2, a 1945 fire engine, served the BFD for over 40
years and was sold as surplus in the late 1980s. After a search, it
was found underneath a barn just a few miles from Blountstown. The
owner agreed to sell and the fundraising began. At the end of the
event, the BFD cleared $1650! 'This is the community's fire truck
because the community came out Saturday and bought it,' says
Leann Shoemake, pictured below, who volunteered as a server. Her
husband, volunteer firefighter Tony Shoemake, is shown at left, along
with their niece, Anna Jo Hall, who donned her fire department apron
to help with the fundraiser. Above, firefighters Brad Owens and Emory
Godwin work the griddle.

PART ONE
Bowl Preview


Illustration e 2008 Bruce Plante (planteink.com)


Tech's future starts now


knowing that it had the first selection of an Atlantic
Coast Conference team after the Bowl
Championship Series, the Chick-fil-A Bowl wasted
little time in making Georgia Tech its choice to play at the
Georgia Dome on Dec. 31.
The Yellow Jackets had few troubles adjusting to first-
year head coach Paul Johnson's triple-option offense, and
it translated to a 9-3 regular-season record. A 20-17 loss to
Coastal Division champion Virginia Tech on Sept 13
essentially prevented Georgia Tech from playing in the
ACC Championship Game, but the Yellow Jackets are cur-
rently the conference's hottest team-.
In the regular-season finale, Georgia Tech posted a
45-42 victory over state-rival Georgia, which started the
season ranked No. 1 in the polls. Running back Jonathan
Dwyer was named the ACC's Offensive Player of the
Year, and Johnson claimed Coach of the Year honors.
The Georgia Tech faithful already are dreaming about
a 2009 ACC title and a spot in the BCS, and their Yellow
Jackets can set the tone for next fall with a victory over
LSU in the final college football game of 2008.
Chick-fil-A Bowl (Atlanta)
LSU vs. Georgia Tech
Records: LSU 7-5 (3-5 SEC West); Georgia Tech 9-3 (5-3
ACC Coastal). Coaches: Ss Les Miles (69-32); Georgia
Tech's Paul Johnson (11642). Series: LSU leads 12-6.
Kickoff: 7:30 p.m. ET Dec. 31. TV: ESPN.
Outlook: The 2007 national champion Tigers are riding
a two-game losing streak for the first time since the 2002
season. LSU ran for only 37 yards and yielded 409 yards
of total offense in a 31-13 loss to Mississippi Arkansas
quarterback Casey Dick came off the bench and threw
for 197 yards and two scores as the Razorbacks rallied
from a 16-point deficit in the regular-season finale. Part of
the Tigers' problem this season has been their inability to
find a quarterback. Harvard transfer Andrew Hatch
played in six games before suffering an injury, and Jarrett
Lee threw for 1,873 yards with 16 interceptions and 14
touchdowns on 143-of-269 passing, but he was injured in
the loss to Mississippi. The Yellow Jackets will have a dif-
ficult challenge trying to stifle Charles Scott, who ranks
fourth in the SEC in rushing yards per game. LSU line-
backers Darry Beckwith and Perry Riley are among the
12 finalists for the Butkus Award, which is given to the
nation's top collegiate linebacker.

THE REST OF THE MATCHUPS
EagleBank Bowl (Washington, D.C.)
Wake Forest vs. Navy
Records: Wake Forest 7-5 (4-4 ACC Atlantic); Navy 8-4 (I-
A Independent). Coaches: Wake Forest's Jim Grobe (86-
77-1); Navy's Ken Niumatalolo (&5). Series: Wake Forest
leads 6-3. Kickoff: 11 a.m. ET Dec. 20. TV: ESPN.
Outlook: The inaugural EagleBank Bowl features a
rematch of the Midshipmen's 24-17 win at Groves
Stadium on Sept 27. Wake Forest, which is playing the
same opponent twice in one season for just the second
time in school history, must avoid turnovers and keep the
nation's top-ranked rushing offense off the field. In the
first game between the two schools, Navy forced six
turnovers and converted nine of its 16 third-down oppor-
tunities. The Demon Deacons rank among the top 21
nationally in points allowed, pass-efficiency defense, rush-
ing defense and total defense. However, they rank 100th
nationally in rushing yards despite a renewed commit-
ment to the run.


Meineke Car Care Bowl (Charlotte, N.C.)
North Carolina vs. West Virginia
Records: North Carolina 8-4 (4-4 ACC Coastal); West
Virginia 8-4 (5-2 Big East). Coaches: North Carolina's
Butch Davis (63-32); West Virginia's Bill Stewart (16-29).
Series: North Carolina leads 1-0. Kickoff: 1 p.m.- ET Dec.
27. TV: ESPN.
Outlook. West Virginia's Pat White, the NCAA's all-
time leader in rushing yards by a quarterback, has explo-
sive speed that has allowed him to compile an impressive
highlight reel during the past four years. His supporting
cast includes sophomore speedster Noel Devine, who
ranks 22nd nationally in rushing yards per game, and a
group of wide receivers who are known for their down-
field blocking. The Mountaineers' defense isn't particular-
ly tough, but somehow the unit leads the Big East in
points allowed. North Carolina has to mix it up and keep
West Virginia's defense guessing. T.J. Yates threw for 190
yards and three scores on 15-of-19 passing and Shaun
Draughn ran for 110 yards in a 28-20 win over Duke in
the regular-season finale.
Champs Sports Bowl (Orlando, Fla.)
Florida State vs. Wisconsin
Records: Florida State 8-4 (5-3 ACC Atlantic); Wisconsin
7-5 (3-5 Big Ten). Coaches: Florida State's Bobby Bowden
(381-1234); Wisconsin's Bret Bielema (28-10). Series:
First meeting. Kickoff: 4:30 p.m. ET Dec. 27. TV: ESPN.
Outlook: Wisconsin lost four consecutive games from
Sept 27 to Oct. 18, and needed overtime to pull out a 36-
35 victory over Football Championship Subdivision oppo-
nent Cal Poly in the regular-season finale Nov. 22. The
one-two punch of RJ. Hill and John Clay give Wisconsin
the Big Ten's best rushing attack, and wide receiver/kick
return David Gilreath ranks 23rd nationally in all-purpose
running. Florida State ranks second nationally in tackles
for loss, sixth in sacks and eighth against the pass, but
the Seminoles limp into the program's 27th straight bowl
after suffering a 45-15 loss to Florida in the regular-sea-
son finale. Sophomore quarterback Christian Ponder has
thrown only six touchdown passes during the past 10
games, but has thrown eight of his 13 interceptions in
three Florida State losses.
Emerald Bowl (San Francisco)
California vs. Miami
Records: California 84 (6-3 Pac-10); Miami 7-5 (4-4 ACC
Coastal). Coaches: California's Jeff Tedford (58-30);
Miami's Randy Shannon (12-12). Series: Miami leads 2-1.
Kickoff: 5 p.m. PT Dec. 27. TV: ESPN.
Outlook: Playing in its backyard, Cal should enjoy a
distinct home-field advantage at AT&T Park. Sophomore
running back Jahvid Best rushed for at least 107 yards
seven times this season, including a 201-yard perform-
ance against Stanford and a 311-yard showing against
Washington in the Bears' final two regular season games.
Still, Miami also should be prepared to defend the pass.
Kevin Riley put the ball in the air 58 times in a 35-27 loss
at MarylAnd on Sept 13, and Nate Longshore has thrown
at least 27 passes in three games. The Hurricanes enter
the game riding a two-game losing streak. Georgia Tech
ran for 472 yards in a 41-23 win over Miami on Nov. 20,
while N.C. State collected 419 yards of total offense and
intercepted four passes in a 38-28 victory in the regular-
season finale.
Next week: Previews of the rest of the ACC bowls.


With the regular season concluded, we
select the most valuable player for each
team in the conference:
IpBTN COLL Junior linebacker
-I Mark Herzlich, who
recovered a pair of fumbles in the Eagles'
30-12 loss to Virginia Tech in the ACC
Championship Game, registered 105
total tackles, six interceptions, two
fumble recoveries and seven passes
defended.
lUtENSON As one of two talented
Clemson running backs,
junior C.J. Spiller separated himself
from teammate James Davis with his
versatility. Spiller led the Tigers with
1,588 all-purpose yards. He rushed for
612 yards and seven touchdowns,
caught 30 passes for 430 yards and was
credited with 546 yards of punt and
kickoff returns.
A EELinebacker Michael TauiUlii
was all over the field in his
senior year as he finished first in the
ACC with 140 tackles, including 63 solo
stops. He averaged 11.7 tackles per
game and posted a career-high 20 stops
in his final collegiate game, a 28-20 loss
to North Carolina. The 5-foot-11, 235-
pound Tauilifli ranks fourth all-time in
school history with 434 tackles.
FLORIDA ST. Junior Everette Brown
was named as one of the
six finalists for the Ted Hendricks
Award, which is presented to the
nation's top defensive end. At 6-foot-4,
252 pounds. Brown is third in the nation
with 12.5 sacks and fourth with an
average 1.71 tackles for loss per game
(20.5).
f C_ H Running back Jonathan
Dwyer, who led the
conference with 1,329 rushing yards and
caught five passes for 143 yards, was the
overwhelming choice for ACC Offensive
Player of the Year and overall Player of
the Year.
MYW AND Running back Da'Rel
Scott rushed for a team-
best 959 yards and helped the Terrapins
record four victories over Top 25
opponents this season. Scott, who ranks
second in the conference in rushing
yards per game and sixth in all-purpose
yards per game, ranks 10th on the
school's single-season list with 959
rushing yards.
mm i[ Freshman linebacker Sean
Spence stood out on this
young team with 62 tackles and 7.5
tackles for loss. Spencer, who started
eight of Miami's 12 games this season
and registered five or more tackles in
eight contests, was named the ACC
Defensive Rookie of the Year.
iAROU1A Senior Hakeem Nicks
L ~ became the first 1,000-
yard receiver in school history with 60
catches for 1,005 yards, breaking Sam
Aiken's six-year-old school record of
990 yards. The first-team All-ACC
selection tied a school record with nine
receiving touchdowns this season, and
will close his career as the school's all-
time leader in receiving yards.
P e-bSTATE Freshman quarterback
Russell Wilson led the
Wolfpack to four consecutive victories
down the stretch. Wilson, the first-team
All-ACC quarterback and ACC Freshman
of the Year, was 139-of-252 for 1,769
yards with 16 touchdowns and just one
interception. He also rushed for 342
yards and four scores.
IUHGINIA Senior tackle Eugene
Monroe was named the
winner of the Jacobs Blocking Trophy,
which is given to the ACC's best blocker.
The 6-foot-6, 315-pound Monroe led a
young Virginia offensive line that gave
up a conference-low 14 sacks during the
2008 regular season.
t&TEOCH Freshman tailback Darren
Evans finished the regular
season with 1,112 yards, including 114
yards in the Hokies' ACC Championship
Game over Boston College. Evans is just
the sixth freshman in ACC history to
rush for at least 1,000 yards in a season.
IIIAE FOREST Cornerback Alphonso
Smith led the team
with six interceptions and earned first-
team coaches' All-America honors.
Smith, who also recorded 36 tackles, 2.5
tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and
a blocked punt this season, shares the
conference's all-time interception mark
of 20 with former North Carolina
standout Dre' Bly.

ing only his second career start, threw for 263 yards with

Carolina's Steve Spurrier (170-61-2). Series: First meet-
ing. Kickoff: 11 a.m. ETJan. 1. TV: ESPN.
Outlook: Iowa running back Shonn Greene has essen-
tially come out of nowhere to claim Big Ten Offensive
Player of the Year honors and the Chicago Tribune's
Silver Football, which is given to the conference's top
offensive player. Greene, a junior college transfer who has
run for at least 103 yards in each of the Hawkeyes' 12
games, has rushed for 1,749 yards this season. Iowa's
defense ranks eighth nationally in points allowed, eighth
in pass-efficiency defense and 10th against the run. After
Chris Smelley's four-interception performance in a 31-14
loss to state-rival Clemson in the regular-season finale,
South Carolina again will test its fortunes with freshman
signal-caller Stephen Garcia. Garcia has thrown for 753
yards with six scores and five interceptions on 56-of-104
passing this season. The Gamecocks' defense, which
ranks third nationally against the pass and 11th in total
defense, gave up a combined 87 points and 902 yards of
total offense in losses to Florida and Clemson. South
Carolina must get more production out of a rushing game
that ranks last in the SEC and 109th nationally to ease
some of the burden on Garcia.

Next week: Previews of the rest of the SEC bowl games.


With the regular season concluded, we
select the most valuable player for each
team in the conference:

joins Herschel Walker as the only two
players in school history to rush for
more than 1,000 yards in consecutive
seasons.
B UCKY With his four
interceptions and 11 pass
breakups this year, cornerback Trevard
Lindley helped lead Kentucky to a 6-6
record and a third straiagh bowl
appearance. The Jim Thorpe Award
semifinalist, who ranks second in the
SEC and 15th nationally in total passes
defended, set a school record with his
34th career breakup this season.
IM Running back Charles Scott
collected 1,109 vards and 15
touchdowns on 202 carries. After
carrying the ball only 45 times for the
Tigers' 2007 national championship
team, the 5-foot-11, 233-pound junior
posted double-digit carries in 11 of 12
games and scored multiple rushing
touchdowns in six games.
'3CICIPDM Senior tackle Michael
Other led an offensive
line that yielded the fourth-fewest sacks
in the SEC and cleared a path for the
conference's third-best rushing attack.
The 6-foot-5, 318-pound Oher is a
finalist for the Outland Trophy, which is
given to the nation's best interior
lineman.
,UMS. STATE One of the bright spots
for the Bulldogs in
their 4-8 season was the play of senior
linebacker Dominic Douglas, whose
116 total tackles this season gave him a
conference-best average 9.7 stops per
game.
RIR AROLINA Junior defensive
lineman Eric Norwood
played a role in 10 sacks and 15 tackles
for loss this season for the Gamecocks.
Norwood, who enters the Outback Bowl
ranked first in the conference in sacks
per game and fifth in tackles for loss per
game, registered 19 solo sacks during
the past three years.
MI ESSE Sophomore defensive
back Eric Berry tied for
the national lead with seven inter-
ceptions. During his career, Benry has
collected a conference- and school-
record 487 yards on 12 interceptions.
The 265 yards that Berry collected on
seven interceptions this season were a
school and conference season record.
IiNDERBILT Junior cornerback D.J.
Moore was the
Commodores' "Mr. Everything." In
addition to leading Vanderbilt with six
interceptions, the 5-foot-10, 182-pound
Moore also had 54 tackles, one sack, one
fumble recovery and one forced fumble.

Local dancers perform alongside


professionals in 'The Nutcracker'


The Liberty Music and
Drama Troupe, under the direc-
tion of local ballet instructor,
Bonita Deck, presented its 4th
annual holiday production of
"The Nutcracker" on Sunday.
Sixty cast members from
Liberty, Calhoun, Leon,
Jackson, and Gadsden counties
and ranging from ages 3 to 70


performed to a sell out crowd of
approximately 500. Three pro-
fessional dancers from Dance
Alive National Ballet per-
formed brilliantly alongside the
local dancers.
The performance included
not only classical ballet set to
classical music, but also drama,
and moments of comedy. The


responsive audience delivered a
standing ovation at the end of
the performance.
The performance was spon-
sored in part by the Liberty
County Arts Council, Liberty
County Board of County
Commission, Florida
Department of State, Division
of Cultural Affairs, the Florida
Council and the National

FLAG DEDICATION COMMEMORATES PEARL HARBOR DAY

In remembrance of Pearl Harbor, the Veterans Memorial Railroad conducted a flag dedication ceremony
Friday at the Train Depot and Museum behind the Veterans Memorial Civic Center. Seven branch flags were
dedicated representing the Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, Merchant Marines and POW/MIA.
Representatives from American Legion Post 172, American Legion Post 272, and Apalachee Valley VFW
Post 12010, with veterans who have served in those branches, hoisted the flags. Former POW Dale Doss
served as guest speaker and helped hoist the POW/MIA flag, along with Tony Patterson.
