WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 2010 104th Year, No. 13 BLOUNTSTOWN, FLORIDA 32424 50 CENTS (Including Tax) CRIMEQuestions surround double shootingBY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News EditorThe Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an early morning shooting that sent two men to the hospital. Randy Dale Lemmons, Sr., 58, and Joseph Douglas Sellers, 40, have both been hospitalized for gunshot wounds. According to the CCSO, a call came into their office at 1:55 a.m. Sunday reporting a shooting on Abe Springs Road. Details are sketchy and the CCSO advises the matter remains under investigation to determine what led to the shooting.

But by meeting’s end, the Council agreed unanimously that his retirement was binding and they would be searching for a new chief. Back in 2006, Kimbrel entered Florida’s “DROP” program, setting his retirement date five years later for Jan. 31, 2011. Through the plan, Kimbrel will receive a monthly retirement check, as well as a lump sum. At the beginning of Wednesday’s meeting, Mayor Winston Deason stressed, “We’re not trying to put him out of work, he retired.” But Kimbrel told the Council he decided to keep his job. City Manager James Woods stated that the decision was the Council’s on whether to rehire Kimbrel. He pointed out that if the Council reinstates him after Jan. 31, the City will have to reimburse the Florida retirement system $34,000. The DROPprogram does allow former employees to be rehired after six months of retirement and there would be no financial penalty against the City. Kimbrel questioned why they had to advertise and reminded the Council that back in 2004, he was appointed to fill the chief’s post when Mayor Deason retired from the job. “What’s changed since then?” he asked. Woods advised that the City adopted a personnel policy in 2005 requiring all positions be advertised. Kimbrel told the Council if they rehired him, they wouldn’t have to pay any retirement on him. “That would save you $15,000 to $18,000 a year,” he remarked.

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News Editor A former Blountstown resident who lost his father in a motorcycle crash in Calhoun County nearly three years ago has died from injuries sustained in a collision in Tallahassee. Jason Sulewski, 23, passed away Sunday night at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. Sources say Sulewski was on his 2005 Yamaha motorcycle when it was rear-ended by a van as he waited to turn off SR20 onto Ben Stoutamire Road early Friday evening. Back in February of 2008, Jason’s father, Michael Sulewski, 62, was killed in a motorcycle accident in Ocheesee. Jason is survived by his wife, Amber; his mother, Bonnie; brothers, Jeremiah, Micah, and Josh; and sisters, Audra Lynn and Michelle. Details on funeral services were not available at press time.TRAGEDYFormer resident dies from motorcycle crash injuriesJason Sulewski is shown here with his wife, Amber. INSIDE THIS ISSUECarr FFA places 2nd in state competition!Turn to page 9BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News Editor The at-large voting issue in Calhoun County has surfaced and resurfaced repeatedly for nearly 25 years and the County Commission appears to be trying to bury it once again. As reported in the Oct. 27 issue of The County Record Jim Pruette, who leads the CalhounLiberty Patriots, filed a case in federal court against the Calhoun County Board of Commissioners, seeking an order to show cause as to what authority the Commission used to legally ignore the referendum passed overwhelmingly by Calhoun County voters in Nov. 1996 to return to at-large voting. He also asked for a writ of mandamus directing the commission to comply with the referendum. In response, County Attorney Matt Fuqua has filed a motion to dismiss the case on behalf of the Commission claiming that “the petitioner has failed to state a cause of action.” At-large voting ended in 1986 after a federal lawsuit was filed by Carlton Smith. The county never put it on the ballot for voters to decide, as provided in the Florida Constitution. Voting has been by single member districts ever since. In 1996, a citizen group petitioned and a referendum to return to at-large voting was on the ballot, passing with a 70% majority in favor. However, the threat of another lawsuit prompted the County Commission to remain with the single member method. Pruette met with the Commission last month asking them to abide by the referendum. A motion by Commissioner Danny Ray Wise in favor of following the referendum died for a lack of a second.GOVERNMENTIs BCC trying to bury at-large voting issue?A runoff election is set for Tuesday, Dec. 7, to fill a vacancy on the Blountstown City Council. Clifford Jackson and Roy Pickron are vying for the Ward 1 post. Early voting is Monday, Nov. 29, through Saturday, Dec. 4, in the Elections office in the courthouse basement from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Election Day (Dec. 7), the Calhoun County Library on North Pear St. will be the polling place for all city voters, open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Voters should park in the back and use the back door. Photo ID is required or you may vote a provisional ballot.See BPD CHIEF page 11

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News EditorTwo men are behind bars for allegedly cooking meth on a sandbar. Bradley Allen Trickey, 26, and William Houston “Shorty” Taylor, 54, have been charged with manufacture of meth. According to the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, Inv. Mark Mallory was joined by FWCOfficers Scott Cassels and Mike Guy on an Apalachicola River investigation after an anonymous tip about possible meth cooking along the river. Investigators came upon Trickey and Taylor the evening of Oct. 28. Trickey was sitting in a boat and Taylor was in a chair on the shore. Another man was with them. Inv. Mallory discovered all the makings of a meth lab on the sandbar. Taylor reportedly gave consent for a search of a bag he said belonged to him. A clear plastic bottle was found inside with a strong odor of flammable solvent used in the manufacture of meth. Numerous other items used to cook the drug were found on the sandbar near the men. Warrants were issued for Taylor and Trickey and they were taken into custody last week. There was no evidence at the time to arrest the third man with them.

CRIME BRIEFSTwo arrested after meth lab on sandbar is bustedBY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News Editor A Blountstown teen and a woman are both behind bars following an investigation into street level prescription drug sales. Kimberly Ann Hall has been charged as a principle to selling prescription drugs without a prescription. An unnamed teen has been charged with two counts of selling prescription drugs. Both were arrested Thursday. According to the CCSO, the case began Oct. 13 when a confidential informant was supplied with buy money and arranged to purchase some pills from the teen. Sgt. Mark Mallory and Dep. Eddie Dalton monitored the buy using audio and video equipment. The informant met the teen near his home and exchanged $40 for 20 Buspar pills. The teen then had the informant give him a ride to Hall’s house where he exchanged $60 for 20 Seroquel pills.

For the seniors on the 2010 Blountstown High School, Friday night’s 20-7 regional playoff loss was a bitter pill to swallow. Questionable calls by game officials wiped out one Blountstown touchdown on an interception and another gave Northview a touchdown when the Tigers had apparently stopped the Chiefs short of the goal line on a great defensive play on fourth down. The two calls didn’t decide the game, although they may have changed the final score. Northview controlled the clock with a punishing ground attack gaining 241 yards on 57 plays. Blountstown had the ball for only three possessions in the second half for a mere 2 minutes and 57 seconds. The Tigers managed only 109 yards rushing on 22 attempts and completed only 1 of 15 passes for a meager 15 yards. “Their offensive and defensive lines were strong and controlled the game,” coach Greg Jordan said Monday. “They ran 59 plays to our 37. We had the ball for only 5 plays in the fourth quarter. They ran a tight set and either gave it to their big fullback who gained 148 yards and scored two touchdowns, or their quarterback kept it and ran outside for 55 yards,” Jordan noted. Regardless of the score, this Tiger team improved as the season progressed, won the district championship and finished the year at 9-2. Despite losing some key players to graduation the Tigers will have several starters returning and some promising young players moving up according to coach Jordan. Coach Jordan and his team will also be waiting for the Florida High School Athletic Association’s final plan for district alignment in January. On Monday, they released their tentative Rural classification plans for boys and girls basketball, baseball, softball, volleyball and football. The new district alignment will be for the 2011-13 seasons. The plan just released would have Blountstown in District 3 football with Bozeman, Vernon, South Walton, and Holmes County. District 4 football would have Liberty County, Port St. Joe, Franklin County and West Gadsden. Wewa would go to District 2 in football with Graceville, Cottondale, Sneads and Chipley, one of the largest schools in the district with 588 students as of last report. Coach Jordan says he thinks there will be some changes to that plan in January. After both teams had punted Friday night on their opening possessions, a hard rush forced a Northview pass that bounced off some linemen before Corey McClellan intercepted the ball and had a convoy of blockers headed downfield for an easy touchdown. However, an official had inadvertently blown his whistle and the ball was brought back to the spot of the interception. The Tigers eventually had to punt but a vicious tackle by Hunter Jordan knocked the ball loose and the Tigers recovered at their own 33. Both teams continued to play well on defense forcing each other to punt. The Tigers took over near midfield after a scoreless first quarter. Quarterback Charles Buggs, Jr., connected with Paul Mosley for 16 yards and Charles Mosley broke free down the sideline for 17 yards and a touchdown. Marquel Comer’s PAT gave the Tigers a 7-0 lead. Northview took over at their own 40 and wasted little time scoring. Fullback Roderick Woods broke tackle and rambled for 33 yards then blasted his way in for the score from the 9. The extra point tied the game at 7-7. On their first possession of the second half, Northview moved to the Tiger 5 where they had first and goal. The Tiger defense stopped the Chiefs on the first three running plays and on fourth down Northview bobbled the ball in a mass of bodies near the goal line. The official closest to the play was waving his arms and marked the ball with his foot a half yard short of the goal line. The official from the far side of the field ran into the mass and called touchdown. His late call stood and the Chiefs took a 14-7 lead. The Tigers managed two first downs on their next series before failing on fourth down. Northview took over at their own 23 midway the third quarter and put together an 18 play, 77 yard scoring drive that lasted into the fourth quarter. The missed kick after the touchdown gave the Chiefs a 20-7 lead. Junior Jawon Mosley led the Tigers with 49 yards rushing and Senior Buggs followed with 31. Jawon Mosley was also in on 12 tackles followed by Freshman Hunter Jordan with 11. Senior Alexander Garrett played hard and was in on 10 tackles. Senior Dowling Lee, a standout on defense all year, was in on 8 tackles. Senior Brandon Smith, Junior Ryan McIntyre and Senior Corey McClellan were each in on 6 tackles. Senior Frankie Murrell was in on 5 tackles. Senior Patrick Wilson and Junior Anthony Williams were in on 4 tackles each. Senior Paul Mosley, who finished the season with 12 interceptions, and Sophomore Bobby Andrews were each in on 3 tackles. Junior Chris Byrne was in on one tackle.The County Record, NOVEMBER 24, 2010, P P a a g g e e 3 3 Santa Claus is Coming to B l o u n t s t o w n D r u g s LAST DAY FOR PHOTOS Saturday, Nov. 27  8-1 CT Pa ck ag e s Start i ng at $9 95 Jon Plummer, Pharmacist 20370 Central Ave. West, Blountstown, FL 850-674-2222 Closed Thursday  Open Friday ti 3 PMQuestionable calls and a tough Northview team too much for BlountstownSeason ends with 20-7 loss Brandon Smith (28) upends Northview's quarterback at the Tiger five yard line.

So, do you want to be President? That’s the question that Hosford School’s 4th graders had to answer as they held a mock election for President. Each student wrote an essay nominating a fictional character for President. In our two party political system the Blue Party selected Scooby Doo and the White Party selected Harry Potter in a primary election. After 2 days of intensive campaigning, the 3rd and 5th grades joined in for a town hall meeting with speeches from both candidates. Supervisor of Elections, Marcia Wood, was on hand to oversee the General Election. She and her canvassing team tallied the results and announced the winner….Scooby Doo!

Too Little Thankfulness Psalms 92:1 You have heard the old saying "you can get too much of a good thing." Well this Psalm reads, "It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord." Here is a good thing of which there is too little Thanksgiving Day would scarcely be distinguished from any other if we lived in the spirit of Psalm 92. Every day would be filled with praise to God, all lives would be greatly enriched by gratitude. But so often we take so much for granted and we forget what God has given us, what He has done for us, and His grace that abides with us always. We give little thanks for our everyday things, our homes, our jobs, our food, our clothes, our church. This Psalm describes a good way to give thanks to God. "To sing praise to our name, O Most High....to the music of the flute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre." v. 1-3. Gladness in the heart bring praises to the lips. When our hearts are truly thankful it will be expressed in some way even as one who is blessed will manifest it. Since music is a universal expression of joy, it is fitting that our rejoicing in the Lord should take the form of music played and hymns sung. Music can bridge every gap, music can cross every bearer. You can listen tot he Japanese sing, the African sing, the Mexican sing, the Frenchmen sing, the German sing and although you can't understand the words, the music is the same and the song still reaches you and blesses you for your hear the melody. You know what they are singing because of the music, for music is a universal language. Even music without words can bless ones sol and speak forth praise to God. When I heard the song a Mighty Fortress, my heart said amen and I got blessed because the song was crying out in every bar of music that God was a mighty fortress. You and I should heed the Psalmist this Thanksgiving and every day, sing praises unto our God for all His ways are past finding out. This Psalm suggests a good time to give thanks to God. "To declare your steadfast love in the morning and your faithfulness by night v-2. Morning and night men should give thanks to God. In the morning, believing that god will be with us throughout the day, blessing, guiding and using us. By night acknowledging that God has been with us and we have been recipients of His faithful love. The day that is filled with praise will truly be a holiday, Oh give thanks unto God and you will be a blessed soul. As you give thanks to God, he will give you more to be thankful for. Have you thanked God for watching over you las night when you could not watch over yourself, have you thanked him for the earth you walk upon. Have you thanked him for salvation, for strength, grace, love. Have you told him or thanked him for being with you each day guiding and helping you. The Psalmist cried out, it is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord. For He has done so much how can anyone be less than thankful. Morning and night we can be thankful for a time to praise God and come unto Him in thanksgiving. This Psalm names a good reason to give thanks to God. "For you, O Lord, has made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy" v.-4. The work of God occupies the remainder of the Psalm and is described in two categories. 1. The ultimate doom of evil v.5-11 The wicked sprout like grass and all evildoers flourish" but the eye of faith sees their downfall the ear of faith hears their doom. For God is on high forever exalted in holiness, wisdom and power as the sovereign of a moral universe, evil is doomed to destruction forever! The dull man though he be a PH.D, cannot know this for he judges by human viewpoints in the perspective of brief history. But the man of God, trusting the word of God, viewing life in the perspective of eternity, knows that evil is doomed and can given thanks and sing praises in the very midst of conflict and suffering, evil cannot win. This is what the Psalmist did, give thanks, sang praises, for he knew what others could not see, evil was a defeated foe, evil wold be destroyed and cast out and trampled under food by God Himself. 2. The continual blessing of righteousness v.1215. Resorting to favorite figures the Psalmist describes the righteous as a palm tree and a cedar in Lebanon. One is exposed to burning winds and desert sand, the other to icy winds and perpetual snow yet both remain strong and green. So in the midst of evil God keeps His people spiritually alive and fruitful. The life that is in Him cannot be destroyed by the death that is about them for their life is in Christ. "In the midst of death" cried Luther "we are in life" for with souls grateful on every hand we live because he is with us and in us. We stand against every storm, against every crisis, we are victors because of the continual blessings of a righteous God who loved us and has redeemed us for His own. When others die spiritually we live because our roots are in God and he makes us to flourish and bring forth fruit, he cannot fall who's hand is in God. Are we really thankful. We who read the O.T. in the light of the N.T. have greater reason than the Psalmist to begin and lose each day with grateful praise to God! For in the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus we witness the decisive and final conquest of evil and discover the source from where flows our life. "He is my rock," said the Psalmist. "Upon this rock," declared Jesus, "I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." May we this Thanksgiving and every day of our lives give thanks unto Him and sing praises unto our God. May we rejoice in the doom of evil and rejoice for the life of righteousness within us that makes us fruitful and alive, given from above. Oh, God, there is too little thankfulness. May we have a real Thanksgiving this year and every day thereafter. SUSIE M. MITCHELL On November 10, 2010, Susie M.

Susanne (Will) Radtke of Atlantic Beach, FL; four brothers, William Curtis Morris of Ocala, FL, Jimmy (Jimmie) Morris of Sneads, FL, Charles (Eva) Morris of Clarksville, FL, and Sonny (Linda) Morris of Eufaula, AL; four sisters, Christine (Bill) Peacock of Altha, Carolyn (Donald) Boudreaux of Pass Christian, MS, Angela (Danny) Bulot of Bay St. Louis, MS, and Charlotte Buras of Belle Chasse, LA; one uncle, Cary Simpson, of Lake Butler, FL; her grandchildren, Ryan (Jessica) Smith of Tallahassee, FL, Kristina (Tyler) Todd of Bristol, FL, and Whitney Baxley of Altha, FL; one very special friend and a step-father to her children, Franklin Mitchell, of Greenwood, FL; and many nieces, nephews and close friends. Many words come to mind when I think of her: beautiful, witty, smart, stubborn or determined. But if I had to choose one word to describe my Mom, it would be generous. From an early age, she was selfless and, being the oldest of nine siblings, she made many sacrifices to help her brothers and sisters. She wore many hats in her lifetime; the most important was a mother to her children. Some of the jobs she held, range from, working at the docks in Jacksonville, Florida, unloading cars off ships to Executive Housekeeper at the luxurious, Sheraton Hotel, where she was highly regarded. In the early 1970’s we relocated back to Blountstown and she was employed at Florida State Hospital, Forensic Unit, as a Psychiatric Aide, until her retirement with the state of Florida in 1980. She was extremely proud of her children, as we were of her. She had an 8th grade education, obtained a GED, endured extremely difficult circumstances and prevailed. She was the backbone of our family. She loved country music and could watch CMT all day. She loved the Lord and read the scriptures often. Her favorite scripture was Psalm 23. She was a great sister, friend, but most importantly, a wonderful, loving mom. She is missed already. A private memorial service will be held in Florida at a later date. Burial will be at Shady Grove Cemetery with her son, Darrell, and Pine Memorial Cemetery with her son, Jimmy. VERNA M. NEEL Verna M. Neel, 70, of Blountstown, passed away Monday, November 22, 2010, in Blountstown.

Neel, of Blountstown; a son, Donnie Neel, and his wife, Nell, of Grand Ridge; a grandchild, Tamela Eubanks; three great-grandchildren, Tiffany, Michael, and Nicolas; two sisters, Ruth Bracewell and her husband, Frank, of Tallahassee and Bernice Coxwell and her husband, Junior, of Blountstown.

Representative Marti Coley has addressed the Special Session action taken by the Florida Legislature on SB 550 regarding the implementation of septic tank inspections. “The Florida Legislature took a responsible step forward by pushing back the implementation date for SB 550 until July 2011,” stated Representative Coley (RMarianna). Members of the public have expressed concerns related to the Septic Tank Evaluation Program scheduled to be implemented on January 1, 2011. Concerns include costs to the state to implement the program and costs to property owners required to pay for the required inspections and inspection fees. Rep. Coley said the delay will give legislators time to review the program and its effects and change the language passed in the 2010 legislative session.

The row-crop harvest is virtually complete in Calhoun County. The cotton is baled; peanuts and soybeans picked, and the winter growing season is here. About 20,000 acres of crops are currently grown in Calhoun County. Of that, about 14,000 acres are corn, peanuts, cotton, and soybeans. Calhoun County also produces about 4,000 head of cattle each year too. According to data collected by the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS), agriculture is significant not only to Calhoun County, but to Florida as well. Did you know that Florida ranks 7th in the U.S. for overall market value of agricultural products sold? Florida is the 2nd largest producer of specialty crops, such as fruits, vegetables, tree nuts, dried fruits, and nursery crops in the nation. Agricultural and natural resource industries manage about twothirds of Florida’s land area, and, of that, nearly one-half of agricultural land is involved in cattle production. So, this is indeed the time of year to slow down, take a breath, and be thankful for the harvest. Be thankful not only for the harvest from the land, but thankful too for the harvest of friendship, family, and community. A Day at the Fair for Calhoun County Extension! The 69th North Florida Fair was held in Tallahassee, November 414th.

For the next few months after that I felt my life spinning out of control as I struggled to work, support a daughter in college, care for grandchildren, move and care for my parents, and try to take care of my own home. Trying to cling to biblical principle was hard for I kept asking where was God as I dealt with all these areas of my life. This was a question I asked myself daily as I began my journey of trying to stay in control and be everything to everybody. I would cry a little everyday and then keep moving. Now during this Thanksgiving season, I look back and I see God. I would like to thank the following individuals and organizations that helped to sustain me through the months as I "survived" these situations. In no particular order, I would like to thank the Bristol Fire Department for their quick response to my parent's home on that day. To Mr. Manning Miller, Liberty County Red Cross Representative, for his concern and compassion and promptness in giving me contacts to get help for my parents. To Liberty County EMS and to the Calhoun-Liberty Hospital Staff for treating my parents as if they were the only ones in the ER that day. To Dr. Gerald Skipper for not only his excellent treatment but for all the emotions of concern and hurt I saw on his face when he realized who they were and what had happened. (You had to be there to know that in that moment he forget he was a doctor and became human.) Thank you again Dr. Skipper. To Lloyd and Gloria Parrish who came to the hospital and stayed with me until my parents were discharged. I went to the back of the hospital to compose myself and Gloria walked up on me crying and immediately asked, "Are they dead?" and I replied, "No," and she quickly replied "Whatcha' crying for?" Through the months of repairs, Gloria constantly brought by prepared meals for my parents to which they were very grateful. Thank you, Gloria, for reminding me of God’s mercy. To my Aunt Alice Solomon and Uncle Cecil Wilson for braving the inclement weather that day, (rain and cold high of 46) and him with pneumonia to come see about them. To my niece, JoAnn Dawson, for stopping by that day and helping to start the clean up process while I was at the hospital with my parents. To Marsha White for contacting my mom's pastor Rev. Ron Baker and his wife, and also Treva Castleberry who immediately came to the hospital and prayed with them. All these individuals were present on this one day and because I was looking at my circumstances, I could not see God. The next few weeks proved to be very trying. I had to find time to get my parents moved and settled before they fell out of their daily routine. I began moving the essentials, bed, sofa, TV, etc. to make sure they were comfortable. Thank you to Albert Butcher, who without hesitation, came on his off time and made sure that the heaters in the temporary residence were in proper working order. Thank you to Dr. Clifford Bristol, who in his capacity of Talquin Representative helped to communicate with Talquin regarding power issues. A very special thank you to the Word of Truth Congregation who in one day showed up and moved, washed, setup, and arranged everything that was not nailed down to the temporary residence, and they did it with a smile. They assured me they were there because they loved James and Ruby and they loved the Lord. They were awesome, true examples of Christianity in action. Thank you to Treva Castleberry who would contact me weekly to see if there was anything the congregation could continue to do. I would like to thank my good friend and prayer partner, Angela Dawson, who while we washed walls, ceiling fans, and vacuumed rugs, reminded me of God's faithfulness and promises. Thank you to Randy Oxendine, a member at Word of Truth, who was an experienced carpenter. For the several months he made himself available on his off days, as he worked as a correctional officer, and came to Bristol when he was getting off from work in the morning to hang sheetrock and paint. He and his father in law, Willard Story, worked tirelessly hanging sheetrock. Myself and my husband, otherwise known as my rock, would watch and help. Randy would also discuss the bible with us, for you see he is also a bible scholar. Thank you again to Randy and Mr. Willard for your sacrifice of time and wonderful show of love, and words of encouragement. Thank you to Greg Solomon for lending your skills also during the sheetrock construction phase. My parents were back into their home by mid summer thanks to the generosity of these individuals and organizations. Lastly, I would like to thank my husband for just being there, for I found strength in your silence to do what needed to be done. There are still some minor construction issues, but nothing to interfere with the comfort of living. Here in this season of thankfulness, I look back and I see where I have so much to be thankful for. During those eight months of my asking myself daily where was God, I finally see him in these individuals who made themselves available for God to use. For the first time since taking my eyes off of my circumstances, I am able to see God. To all these individuals from James and Ruby Gibson, and myself, may God richly bless you this holiday season.
