Looking Back At 2008


JANUARY
Calhoun County's first
baby of the new year arrived
on January 2, 2008, at
Capitol Regional Medical

m An Altha woman was
being held in the Jackson
County Jail on an open count
of murder for allegedly
killing her boyfriend the day
after Christmas. Sue Ann
Cole, 33, was accused of
shooting Danny Durden, a
former correctional officer, at
his Grand Ridge home, then
hiding his body in a shed on
the property. Authorities dis-
covered his body on New
Year's Eve.
m Calhoun County school
officials urged voters to go to
the polls Jan. 29 and show
their support for a proposed


1/2 cent sales tax to improve
local schools.
The School Board con-
tinued moving forward with
plans to consolidate
Blountstown and Altha
schools into a new county-
wide high school. A site
selection committee was
reviewing potential proper-
ties.
Calhoun Countians lost
a dedicated public servant
when County Commissioner
Jim Pickron passed away at
his home. He was 72.

Escaped


inmate is

custody
A minimum custody inmate
who walked away from his
work detail near State Road 12
in Liberty County on
December 23, 2008 was recap-
tured within six hours by
Department of Corrections K-9
teams who tracked him during
his eight-mile attempt at free-
dom.
"The inmate was reported
missing at 10:25 am and the
dogs hit the ground at 11:33
am, picked up his track imme-
diately and stayed with him
until, he was captured at 4:38
pm," said Region I Director
Wendel Whitehurst.
The DC's escape and recap-
ture plan was immediately put
into effect, and local law
enforcement including the
Florida Highway Patrol,, the
Blountstown Police
Department and the Calhoun
County Sheriff's Office assist-
ed. The Calhoun County S.O.'s
helicopter spotted the inmate
and was instrumental in his'
recapture. Corrections K-9
teams from Franklin and
Liberty Correctional
Institutions made the recap-
ture.
Inmate William Puckett was
serving his 10 year sentence at
Liberty Correctional
Institution's Work Camp for
grand theft motor vehicle, traf-
ficking in stolen property and
driving with a suspended or
revoked license. He now faces
an escape charge.
Even with an inmate popu-
lation of more than 100,000,
escapes from Florida prisons
are extremely rare. There
were no escapes from inside a
Florida state correctional insti-
tution in FY 2007-08.

We both graduated this year from Chipola
College and had many opportunities for
employment. However, we decided to "stay
home" and work at Calhoun-Liberty Hospital.
We knew they were in the midst of a significant
turnaround and moving forward in many
positive ways. We're now helping to provide
high quality, courtesy and compassionate care to
the citizens of this area, many of them our
friends and family. We're very pleased we made
this decision and are proud to be a member of a
great healthcare team! We hope you don't have
to use our services but feel you'll be very pleased
if you do. Calhoun-Liberty IS our hospital.

'Run whatcha brung' parade causes Newsome to...


Celebrate 'redneckedness'


BY J.K. NEWSOME

We participated in Scotts
Ferry's redneck Christmas
parade a few weekends back.
What a hoot!! Seeing the thir-
ty some odd entries celebrate
their redneckedness (that word
sounds odd, but seems to fit
somehow......we'll keep it)
with pride, while gathering over
50 toys for the Sheriff's
Christmas for the Children.
Thanks so much Robert and
Diane, expect more entrants
next year.
Our "float" was a hay ride
pulled by a shot gun toting
Santa, with a Christmas tree in
the ford tractors bucket that
would make Charlie Brown
proud. We were in good compa-
ny with mule wagons, John
Deere ridin' lawn mowers,
Kinard VFD's new Resq truck,
lots of four wheelers and be-u-
ty queens, I even got a picture
with Miss Dead Lakes, and her
autograph, which fittingly
enough was an X, with a little
crown drawn over it. All of this
makes me reflect on my own
redneckism.
How can you tell if Nancy is
washing dishes during the holi-
days?? Easy, the Christmas
lights are on. Let me explain.
Years ago when one of the
hurricanes was close, I decided
to take down our TV antenna
and mast, and we didn't use it
anyway because we had one of
them dish thingies (did you
know you could get NASCAR
24-7 with one of them?) This
was fine until some years later
when our satellite provider
decided not to provide CBS
anymore, why, no one seems to
know, but that's not the point,
we can't watch CSI anymore,
none of them. OR Survivor!!
Something had to be done.
As many of you over 25
know, the higher the antenna,
the better the reception, and
we needed help being reached
by Dothan, I know, I could try
for Tallahassee, but, "hello,"
wreslen!! I already had a handy
signal booster in the system
mounted under the house near
where the antenna used to be,
but now, I had a plan to mount
it on top of a telephone pole
where our booger light is, so I
would get another ten feet or so
of height. Got it up there, then
I ran into a stump. The coax
isn't long enough to reach the
booster which is all the way at
the other end of the house. You
know, if you can't get
Muhammad to the mountain ...
so I moved the booster near our
front porch and the coax
reached. In my head I can
already hear the tribal music
playing just before seeing who
got voted off last week, until I
go to plug in the booster...... no
outlet anywhere near it.
Apparently the tribe had
spoken, and I was asked to
leave the remote control imme-
diately. But wait, a recount: If I
remove the bulb from the porch
light, screw in one of those
adapters that puts a plug
between the sconces and the
bulb, I will have won this chal-
lenge, and have immunity!
Okay, time for a test. I got
the TV on, tuned to channel
four...nothing but snow.


', .
J.K. Newsome poses with Miss Dead Lakes at the Redneck
Christmas Parade in Scotts Ferry.


Checklist, coax connected,
antenna pointed north, booster
plugged in... BUT, the porch
light has to be on before the
socket has power!! With one
flip of a switch, I am listening
to, and seeing some funny talk-
ing guy bragging about how
many times he can say
Toyota!!! Never (trust me)
never did I think I would be
glad to see that, but I was.
So, for some time thereafter,
it was a running joke around
our place, if the porch light is
on, Dad's watching channel
four, and you doh't know how
many times the last kid would
come in at night, turn off the
porch light and get a shoe,
thrown at them because they
cut the picture off right when
Grissom was about to say some-
thing prophetic.
Now, back to Nancy washing
dishes.
The Sunday after the
parade in Scotts Ferry, I came
home to find her putting lights
in our front yard, in a dormant,
leafless mimosa tree. Tell me
the image of a dormant, leafless
mimosa tree doesn't immedi-
ately bring up happy memories
of Christmas. Anyway turns out
it was closest to the only electri-
cal outlet out that far, at one of
her koi ponds (erase the picture
in your mind of colorful shale
surrounding a black pool with a
water fall, this is an old claw
foot tub with return water com-
ing out of a rigged pitcher
pump).
The tree did look nice at
night, I must say, but we didn't
have a timer to put on it, the


outlet is hidden down low in
some plants, and the fish have
been moved to a deeper pond
out back for the winter, so we
decided the easiest thing to do
would be to flip off the breaker
to it when we went to bed, and
back on the next night. Simple,
right? Not in our world. Seems
when I installed our dishwash-
er, I let it share the circuit to
the small pump at the koi tub.
Can you see this coming?
Wesley is not sure about his
mother. He called her at the
library one afternoon to tell her
something was wrong with the
dishwasher, it won't come on.
When she told him he had to
turn on the Christmas lights in
the mimosa tree first, then
broke into laughter, he mut-
tered something about hoping
he was adopted. Something
special about the birth of a new
holiday tradition isn't there.
Some would roll their eyes
about a lifestyle celebrated by a
run what cha brung parade, but
I will close with this.
Scotts Ferry also has a
turkey shoot around
Thanksgiving. One year a good
friend called me the day of and
asked if I was going, had I left
yet, had not, so, could I stop by
her place, stir the greens on the
stove and turn um down to a
simmer.
Who could ask for a better
way of life?? In 2009, I encour-
-age you, celebrate your red-
neckedness.

Dear Editor,
Today I witnessed the true
Christmas spirit. For the first
time I attended the annual
Mossy Pond Volunteer Fire
Department's Community
Christmas Party. I tell you
what, if you weren't in the
Christmas spirit when you got
there you definitely were before
you left.
This department like all the
other volunteer departments in
the county are underfunded
and have extreme hurdles to
jump through throughout the
year just to be able to keep the
departments going and fuel in
the trucks. All this so we, the
citizens of this county, have fire
and first responder coverage.
With all the overhead and lim-
ited funding, this department
has been finding ways every
year to make Christmas hap-
pen for the children in the area.
Today, December 20, 2008,
every child received dinner,
dessert, drinks and a visit from
Santa which included a picture
and, of course, let's not forget
the presents under the tree!
Each child also received a gift.
All of this at no cost. This was
done out of the goodness of
their kind hearts.
It has been a very long time
since I can remember really
being in the Christmas spirit,



BE BOLD. SPEAK UP.

especially this year it has been
a really hard one for me. When
I left today I also received a
gift. For the first time in a very
long time I was in the
Christmas spirit. How could
you not be. These wonderful
people who struggle just to be
able to fuel their trucks to
respond to a call gave of them-
selves unselfishly so that chil-
dren who may not have a
Christmas at least had a won-
derful day today.
In closing, I want to thank
each and every one of our
county's volunteer fire depart-
ments and the men and women
who keep them going. They
don't do this for the money or
fame or to get their name or
picture in the paper, they do
this because they truly care for
their community and each
other. When you talk about
heroes I think of you. You're
always on call 24/7, ready to
drop whatever it is you are
doing in an instant to go to
someone's aid, whether it be a


fire or someone needing a first
responder. You guys are always
there.
I encourage all the citizens of
Calhoun County to support
your local volunteer fire depart-
ment. Whether it be with a
monetary donation or by volun-
teering to help. I assure you
they would be very apprecia-
tive. Again, I would like to say
thank you for all that you do.
Sincerely,
Melissa Brown

To the Editor:
I just wanted to say "Thank
YOU" for the wonderful article
(A Christmas Message) on the
front page of Christmas Eve's
paper.
I am so proud to live in a
county that still remembers the
true meaning of CHRISTMAS
and is not afraid to say it!!!!

Healthy Soils workshop will



be held Saturday at area farm


Let's start the New Year off
right with building sustainable
essentials from the ground up.
Building healthy soil is essential
to yielding healthy plants that
nourish healthy people!
The 2009 Building Soils
Workshop will be held
Saturday, January 3, from 10
a.m. to 4:30 p.m. ET at the
Crescent Moon Organic Farm,
145 Crescent Moon Trail,
Sopchoppy.
The workshop will be jointly
sponsored by the StateWide
Small Farm Program of the
Florida A&M University
Cooperative Extension
Program, along with Crescent
Moon Organic Farm, other
local small farmers, and
renowned consultant and
farmer, Shepard Smith,
President of Soilsmith Services
in Oregon. This important
hands-on workshop focuses on


the essentials of building
healthy soil, such as the sustain-
able and biological aspects of
soil and plant health, how to
build plant's system of defense
to reduce disease and insect
infestation, etc.
Participants can expect to
obtain relevant knowledge and
training to assist farmers, grow-
ers, and local nurseries in their
efforts to reduce dependence on
chemical inputs. Building
healthy soils provides several
benefits including lessened dis-
ease and insect pressure,
improved soil structure, plant
vigor, mineralization, improved
soil tilth or structure, reduced
irrigation needs, reduced fertil-
izer needs (as much as 30-50%
in the first year); and impor-
tantly improved yields, flavor,
and shelf life of edible crops.
This workshop demonstra-
tion will also include the follow-


ing: a) Healthy compost; b)
Compost tea; c) Calculate
compost ratio; d) Qualitative
analysis by microscopy; e)
Essential cover cropping; and
f) Vermiculture. Come and
learn!

Report animal fighting and become


eligible for reward of up to $5000


* Attorney General Bill
McCollum has announced that
Floridians can now report ani-
mal fighting and be eligible for a
reward of up to $5,000 by call-
ing The Humane Society of the
United States' animal fighting
tip line at 877-TIP-HSUS (847-
4787).
The toll-free tip line was first
established in Georgia by The
HSUS and Atlanta-based cor-
porate security firm Norred &
Associates Inc. Because of its
success, and with the support of
Florida's Attorney General, the
tip line has been expanded to
help combat dogfighting and
cockfighting in Florida.
"Animal fighting is a cruel
and criminal behavior often
associated with gang activity
and other violence," said
Attorney General McCollum.
"Now Floridians will have an
easy, anonymous way to help
make their neighborhoods safer
and perhaps receive a substan-
tial reward for their efforts."
The HSUS' Florida animal
fighting tip line is managed by
investigators with Norred &
Associates and The HSUS.
Once tips are authenticated,
investigators work with law
enforcement agencies to
inspect, arrest and prosecute
animal fighters. Callers' identi-
ties are protected, and if a
caller's tip leads to the arrest
and prosecution of an animal


fighter, the caller becomes eligi-
ble for a reward of up to $5,000
from The HSUS.
"Animal fighting is a horribly
cruel activity and I am proud to
help bring the criminals who
engage in these blood sports to
justice," said Greg D. Norred,
founder and CEO of Norred &
Associates. "The HSUS animal
fighting tip line has been
immensely successful in
Georgia and we're hopeful that
we will have similar results in
Florida."
The HSUS' animal fighting
tip line was first established in
the wake of the Michael Vick
case so Georgia residents can
easily report illegal animal
fighting to authorities. Since its
inception in January 2008, the
Georgia tip line has received
more than 1,000 calls, leading
to seven raids and 11 arrests.
"The mix of a dedicated tip
line for animal fighting investi-
gations and a reward program is
a winning combination," said
Laura Bevan, director of The
HSUS' Southeast regional
office. "The Humane Society of
the United States is thrilled to
partner with Attorney General
McCollum and Norred &
Associates in the effort to stamp
out animal fighting in Florida."
Last May, the Attorney
General announced The
HSUS's $5,000 reward pro-
gram to combat animal fighting


in Florida and strongly supports
this latest phase in the efforts to
find and prosecute those
involved in the crime. The
HSUS estimates that Florida is
one of the top three states in
which major dogfighting opera-
tions exist.
The expansion of The
HSUS's animal fighting tip line
has been made possible thanks
to a grant from the
Companions' Fund of The
DuPage Community
Foundation. The HSUS' animal
fighting reward program was
established through a grant
from the Holland M. Ware
Foundation.
The Humane Society of the
United States is the nation's
largest animal protection organ-
ization, backed by 10.5 million
Americans, or one of every 30.
For more than a half-century,
The HSUS has been fighting for
the protection of all animals
through advocacy, education,
and hands-on programs.

CALHOUN-LIBERTY HOSPTIAL TO BE

A SMOKE FREE CAMPUS BEGINNING

JANUARY 1, 2009













January 1, 2009, Calhoun-Liberty Hospital will be a tobacco free campus.
This action is a decision of the Hospital Board with the full support and cooperation of the Medical
Staff.

No tobacco products will be allowed to be used anywhere on the grounds of the hospital.

The facility has been smoke free inside for several years. It is now joining a growing trend of
hospitals in Florida and across the nation, to be completely tobacco free on its entire campus,
meaning smoking or the use of tobacco products will not be allowed anywhere on hospital grounds.
This will include all entrances, including the patios on each side of the front entrance and the
Emergency Room "dock" area.

The hospital is asking all patients and visitors to cooperate with this new policy, designed to improve
the health of all. This new policy also applies to all hospital employees.

After conducting smoking cessation classes for its staff, the hospital is now offering these classes to
the public and will provide cessation medications at no cost to those wishing to attempt to stop
smoking or using other tobacco products.

Individuals wishing to participate in these classes should call 674-5411, ext 209. Businesses
wishing to have employees participate, again, at no cost including the prescription medications
associated with stopping, may also contact us.

Florida 4-H is kicking off



it's 100 year anniversary


In 2009, Florida 4-H Youth
Development will celebrate 100
years of teaching youth to
become community leaders
with their head, heart,, hands
and health at the Florida State
Fair.
The year-long celebration
themed "Florida 4-H: A
Century of Youth Success,"
begins with a kick-off event at
the Florida State Fairgrounds,
4800 U.S. Highway 302 N., in
Tampa on February 5 16,
2009 daily from 9 a.m. to 9
p.m. The Florida 4-H
Centennial exhibit will be in the
Agricultural Hall of Fame build-
ing on the fairgrounds. The
general public is invited to
attend.
"For 100 years, Florida 4-H
has given youth and adults the
opportunities to impact their
communities, giving hands-on
experiences through a wide
variety of projects," said
Marilyn Norman, PhD, associ-
ate dean and Florida 4-H state
leader. "Florida 4-H has shifted
to meet the changing interests
of today's generation."
The Florida 4-H program


started in 1909 with corn clubs
for boys in Alachua, Marion
and Bradford counties by J.J.
Vernon, dean of agriculture at
the University of Florida. A
few years later girls' tomato
clubs were organized.
Extension work with African
Americans in Florida began
in1915 and was headquartered
at Florida A & M University.
Today, Florida 4-H is about
much more than corn and
tomatoes. It covers just about
every area of interest, from ani-
mals to workforce preparation,
and from computers to perform-
ing arts. While agriculture, hor-
ticulture, family and consumer
science and livestock remain
projects in Florida 4-H, new
interests, such as environmen-
tal science and rocketry, are
now included.
For more information about
the state kick-off event, contact
Julie Wilson at (352) 846-0996
or visit www.florida4h.org. To
learn what your county is doing
to celebrate Florida 4-H's
100th anniversary, contact the
Calhoun County Extension
Office at 674-8323.


Founded in 1902 nationally,
4-H is now the largest youth
organization in the world.
Nationwide, 4-H has over 9
million members, including
234,000 in Florida. Florida 4-
H offers youth, ages 5 18,
diverse project topics available
in all 67 counties, and with the
Seminole Tribe of Florida.
Florida 4-H is the youth devel-
opment program of the Florida
Cooperative Extension Service
(CES), headquartered in
Gainesville within UF's IFAS.
The CES is funded by a part-
nership between federal, state
and county government agen-
cies.

ing the Calhoun County 4-H,

Attorney General urges



cybersafety over holidays


With Florida schools out for
the holidays, Attorney General
Bill McCollum has issued an
advisory encouraging parents to
talk to their children about
cybersafety.
During the holiday break,
children have more leisure time
and often spend more time on
the internet. The Attorney
General emphasized the impor-
tance of taking a proactive
approach to teaching children
safe internet use and encour-
aged parents to become familiar
with the websites their children
visit and programs they use.
"Parents can make cyber-
safety a priority in their homes
by talking to their children
about internet safety and how
to avoid attacks from internet
child predators," said Attorqey
General McCollum.
"Education is one of the best
tools children have to protect
themselves while using the


With schools
out for Christmas
break, many children
are spending more
time online.

internet."
Last Christmas Eve, the
Attorney General's
CyberCrime Unit arrested a
Seminole County man who
traveled to meet a young girl for
a sexual encounter. The man
had met the teenager in a chat-
room and sexually solicited her,
but her parents alerted the
CyberCrime Unit and the man
was subsequently taken into
custody. That man is now serv-
ing a 63-month prison sentence.
The Attorney General
offered the following list of
internet safety tips for parents
to share with their children:


-Children should be discour-.
aged from chatting online with
someone they do not know in
real life;
-Never give out or post per-
sonal information like last:
names, addresses and dates of.
birth;
-Never post photos or use:
screen names which may reveal
personal information such as'
age or school name, or photos:
that may be considered
provocative or seductive;
-Children should never.
make plans to meet someone:
who they have only met online:
without a parent present; and
-Always report any inappro-
priate chatting or sexual solici-
tations received online.
Additional tips on safe inter-
net surfing for parents, students
and educators are on the

and more convinced that God
wanted a Christian organization
dedicated to reaching motorcy-,
clists with the Gospel of Jesus
Christ. In the spring of 1975. he
put action to his prayers. An
attorney was contacted and a
non-profit charter was applied
for and approved. The waiting
was over. The Christian
Motorcyclists Association was
born. Today, there are over
1000 chapters in the United
States and even more in 18
countries with chapters forming
in six additional countries
(check out www.cmainterna-
tional.org for details).
"We really feel the calling of
the Lord," Charmaine remarks,
adding that with riding as a
hobby and their desire to reach
others for Christ, the motorcy-
cle mission was a perfect match.
"We just enjoy what we're
doing and we're glorifying
God," says Johan.
When they attend bike ral-
lies such as the famous Sturgis
event in South Dakota they
get the opportunity to casually
witness to bikers and others
they encounter. CMA sponsors
a free coffee tent at rallies and
members volunteer. "We get to
meet lots of other travelers -
bikers and other carrpers," says
Charmaine.


When the Claassens were in
Atlanta a few months back,
they spent some time with
Marti's sister, Karen, and her
husband, Ed, who are also
CMA members. Karen men-
tioned having a sister in the
panhandle which led to an invi-
tation from Marti and Jeff,
along with a new friendship.
Meeting new people on their
journey has been one of the best
parts. "The motorcycle is a big
conversation starter," Johan
points out. "When we were in
Miami eating at a Wendy's, a
guy saw our helmets and we
started to talk." That conversa-
tion led to an offer to use a
friend's nice camper on a cold
night.
Since first leaving Cape
Town over four years ago,
Johan and Charmaine have
been to so many exciting places
including Iran, Turkey, Greece,
Italy, France, Switzerland,
Germany, Belgium, England,
and Scotland. They even went
through Canada on the Alaskan
and Top of the World Highway
to the famous Haul Road
(Dalton Highway) which took
them into the Arctic Circle and
to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, the
Northernmost point on their
journey.
After reaching that goal,


they headed south which is the
trip that led them to Calhoun
County. After their brief visit,
the Claussens went even fur-
ther south into Mexico where
they arrived just before
Christmas. For all the details on
their experiences there, as well
as blogs on all the areas they've
visited, go to their website at
