CRIMEAnother case of insurance fraud at hospitalBY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News EditorA former correctional officer and hospital housekeeper charged in an insurance fraud case last month are back behind bars. Cedric Bernard Simmons, 34, has been charged with conspiracy to commit insurance fraud and forgery. Dallas Hogans, 26, has been arrested on the same conspiracy charge, as well as being a principle to forgery. According to theBY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News EditorElection day went smooth in Calhoun County last Tuesday with the exception of a snafu at one precinct. According to Margie Laramore, Supervisor of Elections, it was discovered early in the day that voters at the Scout House precinct on South Pear Street were not receiving their city ballot. [Poll workers] eventually discovered it and 31 voters had voted, Laramore reports, adding that both city and county voters use that precinct and only county ballots were given out. Laramore immediately gathered a list of the 31 who had cast ballots and started dialing. I got in touch with nine of them, she remarks, adding that some laughed it off and didnt seem to mind. They were all given the option to come to the Elections office and vote a provisional ballot for the city race. It was an honest mistake, says Laramore. I did the best I could with what happened. Fortunately, the 31 ballots would not have made a difference in the close Council race. After provisional ballots were counted, Clifford Jackson had 319 and Roy Pickron came in a close second with 302. Beverly Veressa followed with 100. Since neither of the top two vote getters had 50 percent plus one, a runoff election is planned next month. The Blountstown City Council was expected to set the runoff date at their meeting Tuesday (details unavailable at press time).

BUSINESS CRIMECouple busted on meth chargesB B Y Y K K E E L L L L I I P P E E A A C C O O C C K K D D U U N N N N N N e e w w s s E E d d i i t t o o r rA Blountstown business owner and his wife are behind bars after authorities found the makings of a meth lab in their South Street home. John Alvin McClendon, 48, and Amanda Lynette McClendon, 31, have been charged with trafficking methamphetamine and possession of listed chemicals. John is also charged with trafficking hydrocodone. According to the Calhoun County Sheriffs Office, a search team consisting of Inv. Mark Mallory, Sgt. Jared Nichols, Dep. Eddie Dalton, and Dep. Jody Hoagland served a search warrant on the McClendons home and auto repair business just before 10 a.m. Saturday. After no response, the team forced open the back door of the home and found Amanda in the master bedroom with a plastic container of meth. John then drove up in front of the business and was approached by Dep. Dalton and Sgt. Nichols who advised him of the search warrant being served. He resisted as they attempted to handcuff him and had to be physically restrained. A bottle of 28 hydrocodone pills, two meth pipes, and three unknown pills were found in Johns front pants pocket. A pill bottle with one gram of meth was discovered inside Johns jacket. A search of the McClendon home turned up numerous items used to manufacture meth. The couple was booked into the Calhoun County Jail and remained in custody at press time.

Each agreement, known as a Stipulation and Consent to the Issuance of an Order to Cease and Desist, is a formal action by the OTS requiring corrective measures in a number of areas. No fines or penalties were imposed as a result of these formal actions. C. Stanley Bailey, Chairman & CEO, stated, "Superior has been working closely with its regulators since the start of this economic recession to increase capital, reduce higher risk and non-performing loans, return to profitability and maintain safe and sound banking practices. These agreements formalize steps that already are underway and that we and our regulators believe are necessary to improve Superior's financial health, and its ability to provide a 'superior' level of service to our customers and the communities we serve in Alabama and Florida." Under the agreements, Superior is required, among other things, to increase the Bank's capital, maintain its allowance for loan and lease losses at a level appropriate for the risk in its loan portfolio, reduce its classified assets, discontinue the extension of loans to certain stressed sectors of the economy, update its three-year capital and business plans, reduce brokered deposits, prohibit payment of dividends by the Bank and the Company at this time and increase management and board oversight. The Company and Bank are implementing a comprehensive plan to achieve full compliance with the orders. Customer deposits and performing, non-classified loans are unaffected by the agreement with the OTS. Deposits remain fully covered by FDIC insurance to at least $250,000 per depositor. In addition, non-interest bearing transaction accounts and qualified NOW checking accounts are fully guaranteed by the FDIC for an unlimited amount of coverage under the FDIC's Transaction Account Guarantee (TAG) program, in which Superior Bank is a participant. The coverage under TAG is in addition to, and separate from, the coverage available under the FDIC's general deposit insurance protection.Cease and desist order filed; Superior Bank announces plans VETERANS DAY EVENTS PLANNEDTURNTOPAGE12 FORDETAILS
A drunk driver employed as an investigator for the Florida Department of Children and Families was arrested Saturday night after forcing a law enforcement officer off the road. Kevin Scott Edwards, 45, has been charged with DUI in the case. According to the Calhoun County Sheriffs Office, Sgt. Jared Nichols was southbound on SR73 around 7:30 p.m. when he entered a curve and spotted two northbound vehicles headed his way, one in his lane attempting to pass the other in a no-passing zone. Sgt. Nichols swerved off the roadway to avoid a collision, then pulled the vehicle over. The driver, identified as Edwards, allegedly admitted to consuming two rum and Coke drinks at Mexico Beach prior to getting in his vehicle and had continued drinking while driving. He failed to successfully complete a roadside sobriety test, then refused to give a breath test, resulting in his arrest. Blountstown Police Department, a woman contacted investigators Oct. 29 to report her mother had passed away at CalhounLiberty Hospital earlier in the month. The woman stated that Hogans had contacted her prior to her mothers death. Hogans allegedly told her Simmons had taken out a life insurance policy on her ailing mother. The woman said she contacted the insurance company and learned there was a $50,000 policy on her mother listing Simmons and Hogans as 50/50 beneficiaries. The woman further reported Simmons had contacted her, urging her not to press charges. Inv. Timothy Partridge wired the woman with audio and she met Simmons to discuss the situation. Inv. Partridge listened as Simmons gave details to the woman, stating that he filled out the application and forged her mothers name. He also alleged that Hogans was his co-conspirator. Simmons and Hogans were taken into custody Monday. As reported in The County Record last month, a phone tip led to the arrests of Hogans and Simmons for taking out three life insurance policies on a 74 year-old hospital patient who met their criteria of not being able to speak or write and didnt have family stopping by. The policies totalled $200,000 with Hogans and Simmons reportedly 50/50 beneficiaries.The County Record, NOVEMBER 10, 2010, P P a a g g e e 2 2 USPS 135-060 Published every Wednesday by Calhoun Publishing Co., Inc. 20311 Central Avenue West Blountstown, FL 32424 PHONE: 850-674-5041 FAX: 850-674-5008 e-mail: email@example.com website: www.thecountyrecord.net Periodicals postage paid at Blountstown, FL Post Office POSTMASTER: Send address changes to THE COUNTY RECORD P.O.

The fall and winter of 2009 was one of the rainiest on record and had serious impacts on winter crops. Well, as is now predicted, the fall and winter of 2010 is gearing up to be dry and warm as another La Nia weather pattern has formed. Rainfall in the Southeast is reduced, sometimes significantly, during La Nia winters. The current drought is a serious cause for concern prompting tough decisions as agricultural producers head into a drier than normal winter season. Based on current La Nia conditions, the following considerations should be made in regard to winter pastures in the southeast: Postpone planting if the soil is dry, soil moisture at planting will be an important factor for success; Plant in prepared seedbeds where chances of success are higher and avoid overseeding; Plant in fields that typically hold moisture in the winter; Dont invest only in winter forage, save some dollars for supplemental feed purchases; Be prepared to reduce stocking rates and grazing days in response to the anticipated reduced rainfall.

The disease is caused by a fungus (Raffaelea lauricola) that is introduced into these host trees by a non-native insect, the redbay ambrosia beetle (Xyleborus glabratus) Laurel wilt disease and the associated exotic redbay ambrosia beetle is spreading across the southeast and has recently been confirmed by Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Division of Plant Industry as being established in Bay County, FL. This is a significant jump in the current distribution of this devastating disease of redbay trees and other trees in the Lauraceae family.

When rivals in any sport meet the athletes play at a higher lever and their fans get more excited. Seldom, however, can the competition be so even and hard fought that its a shame there can be but one winner. But, thats what makes rivalries special, even when it comes down to the final play of the game to decide who gets bragging rights. The Blountstown Tigers and Liberty County Bulldogs met in Bristol Friday night to decide the District 2 Class 1-A Championship. Both teams came into the game with 4-0 district records. The Bulldogs scored with 10 seconds left in the game and elected to go for the win rather than kick the extra point and go into overtime. With the endzone surrounded by fans, the Bulldogs executed a reverse pass that appeared perfect until the ball slipped through the receivers hands and fell to the ground. The Tigers survived and claimed the championship, 20-19. The Tigers will host Baker at Bowles Field Friday night to close out the regular season and the Bulldogs host Cottondale to close out theirs. The Tigers will host Northview Bratt, runners-up in District 1, November 19. The Bulldogs will travel to District 1 winner Freeport on November 19. Should Blountstown and Liberty County both win, they will face each other in the second round of the playoffs November 26. It was an evenly matched game from start to finish Friday night. The Tigers ran 47 plays for 295 yards and the Bulldogs ran 50 plays for 310 yards. The Bulldogs had the edge in rushing with 241 yards on 45 attempts to the Tigers 145 yards on 38 carries. The Tigers had the edge in passing completing 5 of 9 for 150 yards and two touchdowns while the Bulldogs completed 4 of 5 for 69 yards and two touchdowns. Neither team committed a turnover in the game. Jawon Mosley led the Tigers with 129 yards on 22 carries. Wayne Young rushed for 90 yards on 14 carries followed closely by Stedman Williams with 79 on 7 carries for the Bulldogs. Both teams played hard hitting defense the entire game. Hunter Jordan led the Tigers with 12 tackles followed by Alexander Garrett with 9. Ryan McIntyre and Dowling Lee each had 8 tackles. Brandon Smith, Frankie Murrell, Paul Mosley, Jawon Mosley and Corey McClellan were all active on defense. For the Bulldogs, Stedman Williams, Stirling Lake and Jimmie Lee Revell each had 7 tackles. Daniel Deason, Alex Marlowe and Jimarez Reed each had 6 tackles. Wayne Young, Shelby Williams, Terryal Jenkins and E.J. Williams were also in on several stops. The first quarter was a defensive struggle with the Tigers stopping the Bulldogs twice on a fourth down play. The Tigers tried a 32 yard field goal attempt early in the second quarter that fell short. On the Bulldogs next series, Alex Marlowe passed to a wide open Stedman Williams who went untouched for 45 yards and a touchdown. The PAT was no good, but the Bulldogs had the early lead, 6-0. The Tigers responded behind the hard running of Jawon Mosley. Quarterback Charles Buggs, Jr. passed to Marquel Thomas across the middle for a touchdown. Marquel Comer kicked the all important PAT for a 7-6 Tiger lead. Blountstown took the second half kickoff and wasted little time extending their lead. Mosley broke some tackles and raced 40 yards for a touchdown. Comers kick missed, but the Tigers were now ahead, 13-6. The Bulldogs answered with a 10 play 64 yard drive. Nolan Brown ran a quarterback sneak for 19 yards and a touchdown. Stirling Lakes PAT tied the game at 13-13. The Tigers came right back. Buggs passed to Brandon Smith who had enough speed to race 58 yards for a touchdown. Comers kick was good and the Tigers were ahead with four minutes left, 20-13. The Tiger defense forced Liberty to punt and allow the offense to run off some crucial time with some first downs. The Bulldogs forced a Tiger punt, but the Bulldogs roughed the Tiger punter. Young, Lake, Jenkins, and Revell came up with big defensive plays for the Bulldogs and forced the Tigers to punt. From their own 16, Williams ran for 12 then the Tigers were called for a face mask penalty and an off side penalty. Brown passed to Brenton Bailey for 21 and the Bulldogs were at the Tiger 24. Williams ran for 15 to the Tiger 4. With 16 seconds left, Brown scrambled around and found Blake Baggett in the endzone for the touchdown. Coach Grant Grantham called the perfect play to win the game. The ball fell softly to the ground. Tiger players and fans celebrated. Bulldogs and their fans were totally dejected. Both teams had played 48 minutes of great high school football.The County Record, NOVEMBER 10, 2010, P P a a g g e e 3 3TIGERS ARE DISTRICT CHAMPIONS!! What a high school football game between Liberty County and Blountstown for the district title. It was two evenly matched football teams giving it all they had for 48 minutes. It was a shame either team had to lose after the effort both teams demonstrated. With the win, the Tigers moved to 8-1 on the year with one regular season game remaining. We will host a very tough Baker team on SENIOR night this week. The win also puts us at home in the 1st round of the state playoffs against Northview Bratt. Back to the Liberty County game. The final score was 20-19 with the game undecided until the final play. We had a chance to put the game away after Liberty roughed the punter with 5 minutes or so to go in the game with us leading 20-13. We were unable to move the chains and had to punt the ball back to Liberty. We had a 15 yard face mask penalty and a blown assignment in the secondary to give Liberty extra chances. And like most good teams, Liberty made us pay with a late TD with less than 10 seconds to go in the game. It all came down to one play at that point as Liberty decided to go for 2 points and the win. They ran a reverse pass from the 3 yard line and the ball fell incomplete. After a 48 minute slugfest, the game came down to one play for the championship. Liberty had missed an extra point earlier in the game. I credit Coach Grantham for going for the win instead of the tie. He knows his players better than anyone and I'm sure they all support his decision. Good luck to Liberty as they travel to Freeport for the 1st round of the playoffs. The Tigers will host Baker from district 1 this week for senior night and the final regular season game. Baker is out of the playoffs, this will be their playoff game. It will also be the final game for their coach as he in his final year of the drop program and will retire at seasons end. Baker will be ready to play and it will be another tough contest.

The bulk of Mr. Barnes letter was his opinion in reference to Amendment 4 which was on the November 2nd ballot. I am not making any reference to that part of the letter. What I AM referencing is his last paragraph, and I quote If you read Florida Statute 125.66(4)(a) you will find that you should have received a letter from the Clerk of Court for all property owners with less than 10 acres explaining to you in detail what the attempt was to restrict the use of your property. At this point, Florida Statutes 125.66(4)(a) has absolutely nothing to do with PROPOSED Amendment 4. Florida Statute 125.66(4)(a) addresses . Ordinances or resolutions that change the actual list of permitted, conditional, or prohibited uses within a zoning category, or ordinances or resolutions initiated by the county that change the actual zoning map designation for a parcel or parcels of land involving less than 10 contiguous acres, THEN the Clerk shall notify each real property owner whose land the governmental agency will redesignate by enactment of the ordinance or resolution . To my knowledge, there has been no change of this nature in Calhoun County that was not initiated BY THE REAL PROPERTY OWNER, and in those cases, the surrounding land owners were notified by certified mail and all public notices were sent out correctly and timely. NOW, if Mr. Barnes was talking about Proposed Amendment 4, this Statute does not apply as it is referencing Ordinances and Resolutions. Should Amendment 4 pass, I will be sure to carefully and faithfully perform all duties and responsibilities it carries for me as Clerk of the Circuit Court. BUT at the end of the day, Ruth Attaway, Clerk of the Circuit, has not FAILED to perform her duty under Florida Statute 125.66(4)(a) AND You SHOULD NOT have received a letter from the Clerk of Court referencing Amendment 4. Ruth Attaway Clerk of the Circuit Court, Calhoun County,Clerk Attaway responds to Ray Barnes' recent letterTo the Editor: As I write this article, tomorrow is November 2nd, election day. I dont know who the winner in the governors race will be, so this is not sour grapes from me. By the time this article is published, the election will be over, so it cannot be argued that I am trying to influence your vote. I write this article because I can no longer stand by silently while the United States Constitution, particularly the Fifth Amendment, is vilified. As a lawyer, and a member of The Florida Bar, I took an oath to support the constitution of the United States. I cannot support the Constitution without defending it. During her campaign for governor, Alex Sink ran television ads featuring prosecutors and law enforcement officers who criticized Rick Scott for invoking his constitutional rights as guaranteed to him by the Fifth Amendment. Ms. Sinks television ads implied that Mr. Scott was guilty of a crime because he invoked the Fifth Amendment. While Mr. Scott, his company, or both of them may have resolved the charges against them with an agreement to pay large fines, and they may have some culpability or even be guilty of the crimes for which they are accused, it is unfair, misleading, and unjust to infer guilt to Mr. Scott, or anyone else, for invoking their constitutional rights under the Fifth Amendment. When our forefathers wrote the Bill of Rights, they did not include the Fifth Amendment as a sanctuary for the guilty. This precious right, purchased with the blood of our ancestors, was put into the Bill of Rights as a shield for citizens against the tremendous power of government. Our forefathers realized that when a citizen is accused of a crime that power is focused upon one individual who stands to lose his liberty, his property, and, in some circumstances, even his life. This power is awesome and frightening. Nothing is a match for it, not even great wealth. Our courts have long recognized the legitimacy of the Fifth Amendment. The Supreme Court stated it clearly in the case of Ullman v. United States: Too many, even those who should be better advised, view this privilege as a shelter for wrongdoers. They too readily assume that those who invoke it are either guilty of crime or commit perjury in claiming the privilege. Such a view does scant honor to the patriots who sponsored the Bill of Rights as a condition to acceptance of the Constitution by the ratifying States. The Founders of the Nation were not naive or disregardful of the interests of justice. (citations omitted). Our forefathers did not exclude anyone, whether rich or poor, from the protections of the Fifth Amendment. Even a man of Mr. Scotts wealth is not a match for the tremendous power of the government when its focus is brought to bear upon an individual citizen. Our forefathers also knew that governments were run by human beings. As such, the power of government was susceptible to misuse by those whose selfinterest or personal agendas would motivate them to do so. We need look no further back in history than the McCarthy era to remind us of this danger. There is no substitute for liberty. Our constitutional rights are the fortress of our liberty. If we stand by silently while they are assaulted, that fortress may fall. I, for one, cannot be silent. Carlton Duke Fagan Attorney, JacksonvilleAttorney says Fifth Amendment "vilified" in recent election ads S S U U B B S S C C R R I I B B E E T T O O D D A A Y Y ! Its really going to hurt us, says Superintendent Tommy McClellan, who notes the tax brought in about $97,000 and the state matched those local dollars with $192,000. McClellan reports the funding went to teacher salaries. Voters across the state also failed to pass an amendment that would alleviate some of the strict class size reduction rules. Schools are required to have no more than 18 students in a pre-k through 3rd grade class, 22 in a 4th through 8th grade class, and 25 in high school classes. Any school that violates those numbers will be penalized. With the class size limitations remaining in place, McClellan says he cant cut teachers, but is now faced with figuring out how to pay them. He also points out, Stimulus money runs out after this year. I dont know what were going to do. According to McClellan, 82 percent of the school districts budget goes to salaries. Well have to tighten our belts, he remarks. If somebody cuts your pay, you just have to cut your budget to meet your pay.School tax The Red Hat Society will meet for lunch Thursday, Nov. 11, at El Jalisco at noon CT.

C O U P ON C A R D Altha Cross Country advances to regionals The Altha Cross Country boys and girls team will be advancing to the Region 1 Championship in Gainesville, Florida. In the girls division, the team placed 5th with a team average of 25:00:55 making it into the top six overall to advance. Mary Sewell placed in the individual division coming in 10th place out of 81 girls with a 5K time of 21:48 setting a PR. Kimi Wiltse had a personal record of 24:25, Sharlyn Smith ran a 25:29 also a PR, Carly Schwartz was the 4th girl in for Altha with her personal best of 25:57, and Madison Rowe ran 27:21. These girls have always worked very hard, says Coach Sewell. All of them are active in multiple sports from volleyball to gymnastics. On many days, they would go from one practice to the next and even run before games. These girls individually will push themselves, but what I have seen the most out of them is how much they value each other. And, out of all their accomplishments, that is what makes me the most proud of them, their character. The boys team also made it into the top 6 this year placing 5th in their division. They had a team average of 19:57, taking a minute off of their team average time from last year. Devin Ferrell placed in the individual division for the boys coming in 10th out of 99 boys, with a 5K time of 18:18. Ricky Morales ran a 20:06, followed by Tyler Hamilton with a 20:08. Ashton Baggett ran a 20:13, Jeremy OBryan a 21:02, Brendan Dew 21:40 a personal best, and Kyler Dew ran a 22:03 also a personal best. These boys said from the beginning of the season that they were going to do whatever it took to go to regionals this year, Coach Sewell remarks. They also did not back off of a hard workout. They upped their long run this year to eight miles and also added a 4th day to their practice, running even on Fridays. They have ran this season against much bigger schools and programs but met the challenge head-on. What I have noticed most about them throughout the season is, no matter what happened, through injury or tough races, these boys remained focused and determined. The team will compete at Oak Hall School on Friday, November 12, for the Region 1 Championship. The girls race will start at 9 am and the boys race will follow at 9:30 am. Good luck, Wildcats! Lady Wildcats end exciting season in regional playoffsThe Altha Lady Wildcats ended an exciting season in the first round of regional playoffs last week. It was the first time in seven years the Lady Cats have advanced in volleyball beyond district. "We were just overpowered by a very strong Rocky Bayou team," says Coach LeAnna Hall. "We finished the season with a 15-12 record and only lose two seniors. We've learned so much this season and they've put forth so much effort to become a better team. I am proud of them and the progress that they made. Our Seniors, Sharlyn Smith and Christy Simmons, will definitely be missed. However, we have an awesome group of young athletes coming up. It's with the younger ones that you build your program and I'm excited about our future. We'll be planning some summer activites to get into some team camps for the JV and Varsity level as well as some individual camps."

The County Record, NOVEMBER 10, 2010, Page 8 BlountstownHigh School News Carr School News Lt. Col. Ty Edwards was recently honored by the Woodmen of the World at Blountstown High School. FFA members from Carr School participated in the ceremony and were so moved by Lt. Col. Edwards' courage and service, that they wanted to honor him as well. Throughout the month of September, our school practiced the character trait of responsibility. Staff and students were asked to bring in money for the Wounded Warriors Project in honor of Ty. Ty graduated from Blountstown HIgh School and was injured while serving our country in Afghanistan as a Marine. The money raised will help service men and women like Ty, that have been injured in combat. We would like to thank everyone for their efforts in this great project. We would also like to thank seventh grader Randi Girardot for helping by placing a collection container at the AmVets Hall Post 231. Veterans gave generously to help our school with this project. A check for $362 was forwarded to the Wounded Warriors Project in Jacksonville, Florida, in honor of Lt. Col. Ty Edwards. His parents, Tommy and Debbie Edwards, were recognized during the last assembly. Pictured are (left to right): Randi Girardot, FFA President J.P.

In addition to helping students skills with civilian occupations, the ASVAB is also used to match students skills with military careers. However, taking the test does NOT place the student under any obligation to any branch of the military.

The position of the office is that despite ongoing budget cuts, State Attorney Glenn Hess is dedicated to meeting the needs of the circuit as a whole, which means fully staffing every county office. Two attorneys will work cases in the Calhoun County office, Gary Pack and Alicia Coleman. Gary Pack was raised in Long Island, NY, but now splits his time between Port St. Joe and Panama City Beach. He graduated from John Marshall Law School in 1976 and was admitted to the Florida Bar that year. He spent three years in private practice in Chicago, then joined a State Attorneys Office in suburban Chicago where he prosecuted for 25 years, including 12 as the elected State Attorney. Pack moved to the 14th Circuit in 2005 and worked for the State Attorneys Office, then the Office of Regional Conflict Counsel, then back to the State Attorneys Office when Glenn Hess was elected. During his career in law, Pack has tried every crime from speeding to murder. As a prosecutor in Bay County, Pack was assigned to the divisions of circuit judges Don T. Sirmons, Glenn Hess and Richard Albritton. Alicia Coleman was born in Bartow, but has lived in Panama City since 1991. She graduated from the University of West Florida in 2006 and Jones School of Law in May 2010. She is currently studying for the Bar exam, which she will take in February 2011. Coleman clerked for Circuit Judge Michael Overstreet in 2008 and the State Attorneys Office in 2009. When she was hired by the State Attorneys Office, she was certified as a legal intern and has been working on cases in the misdemeanor division. She is engaged to be married on Nov. 20.

They enhance nonprofits ability to serve more individuals and families in need and develop leaders of today and tomorrow. Bank of Americas commitment to create meaningful change in the communities they serve makes Take Stock in Children a good choice as a grant recipient, because Take Stock offers hope for low income, at-risk students to break the cycle of poverty. The program offers local children the opportunity to better themselves and the community around them through higher education. Take Stock in Children depends solely on the support of local community members and businesses such as Bank of America.

Its in the name of wildfire mitigation said Division of Forestry spokesman and Wildfire Mitigation Specialist Brian Goddin. Our Division of Forestry firefighting rangers are extremely skilled in the dangerous task of putting out wildland fire when there is one, but by reducing some of the fine fuels in advance around sensitive structureslike peoples homesit gives the homeowners a better defensible space in the unfortunate event that a wildfire were to threaten them. The fuel reduction thats going on in Calhoun County specifically consists of mechanical mowing of the natural woody fuels less than 6 inches in diameter within 100 feet of structures in 2 residential neighborhoods, at the brand new Blountstown High School, and the Panhandle Pioneer Settlement. The crew actually performing the work is TRB Enterprises out of Marianna. TRB was awarded the contract to complete several projects in the 7-county Chipola Forestry District (Walton, Gulf, Bay, Jackson, Holmes, Calhoun, and Washington Counties) that Goddin has compiled based on wildfire threat potential and input from each countys rangers. The rangers that fight the fires in the areas know their fuels and wildfire risks
and these guys at TRB Enterprises are professional and easy to work with and they are doing a super job of mulching the fuels... so, as you can see its somewhat of a group effort to get the jobs done I guess you could say!, Goddin said. I have several other projects lined up in Bay, Holmes, Washington, and Jackson Counties, too. The funding for these projects is provided by that American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)a.k.a. stimulus money that President Obama recently mandated to put Americans back to work and TRB is doing just thatworking hard on helping us, the Division of Forestry, mitigate wildfire damage. To report a suspicious fire, call 547-7083.

Thanks to Division of Forestry mitigation...Calhoun County is better protected against wildfiresMitigation work at the Pioneer Settlement protects the historic structures from wildfire damage.Join Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT), The Florida Department of Health (FLDOH) Communities Putting Prevention To Work (CPPW) and Floridas Parks and Recreation in a state wide clean-up of tobacco litter within our parks on Saturday, Nov. 20, at 1 p.m. at Sam Atkins Park in Blountstown.

The County Record, NOVEMBER 10, 2010, Page 14 I grew up bussing tables at this restaurant. Last year, my wife, Brooke, and I bought it. We were working hard to build a business, then the spill hit. BP said they would try to make things right. But how was an energy company going to help our restaurant? Keeping Businesses Open We gured they would tell us to take a number and wait in line. Instead, they asked us if we could serve food to the workers, engineers, scientists, and local residents they had hired to cleanup the spill. It kept us busy round the clock. And we werent the only ones. They hired a lot of local businesses and kept a lot of people working. They have kept businesses up and down the Gulf open and its still making a difference. Open for Business BP asked us to share our story with you to keep you informed. Our restaurants open six days a week. Customers are lling our restaurant again and we think its a good time to come down to the Gulf Coast. And if we could make just one request, please think of us when planning your next vacation. Were still here and while its been tough, we are still cooking. And we are just one of the hundreds of great places ready to welcome you when you come down. So dont wait. Were looking forward to seeing you.Making This RightBeaches Claims CleanupEconomic InvestmentEnvironmental Restoration Health and Safety WildlifeNow Gulf seafood is coming back on the menu, so come on down, were open for business.Bryan Zar Co-owner, Restaurant des Familles Crown Point, LA For assistance, please call: To report impacted wildlife: (866) 557-1401To report oil on the shoreline: (866) 448-5816To make spill-related claims: (800) 440-0858oridagulfresponse.com For information visit: bp.comrestorethegulf.govfacebook.com/bpamerica twitter.com/bp_america youtube.com/bp 2010 BP, E&P
