One Calhoun County Commissioner announced last Tuesday night during a board meeting that he is proposing government agencies do the same to the tune of a 20 percent budget cut. Danny Wise, who represents District 1, gave his fellow board members a heads up that he would be making a motion at the August 3 meeting to roll back the county millage rate. You read that correctly he is suggesting taxes be reduced Wise wants to see the local millage rate, that has hit the 10 mill ceiling, drop down to 8 mills. When it was raised to the 10 mill cap, it was supposed to be temporary, Wise tells The County Record Im going to try and get the ad valorem tax back to before the real estate boon. Just four years ago, homes were selling like sno cones on a hot beach. In fact, 100 residential sales were recorded in Calhoun County between January and June of 2006. For the same period this year, only 14 sales are on the Property Appraisers website. And prices are clearly down. One study conducted by a regional real estate organization indicates a 31.5% drop in the average price of homes in the four county region from 2007 to 2010. Despite the values going down, the property taxes havent changed. People are tired of being over taxed left and right, says Wise.

But if tragedy were to strike, Calhoun County authorities are well prepared. Last Wednesday, emergency responders took part in a training drill on the Blountstown Elementary School campus. The scenario involved a disgruntled father who went on a shooting rampage inside the school. The exercise, funded by the State Homeland Security Grant program, was coordinated by Traci Buzbee of The Management Expert. She brought four SWATteam members, Glock simunition guns, and a makeup artist who painted the victims. The training is realistic to the point the officers put on their gear and go out and their adrenaline is racing like in a real event, says Buzbee. We provide the same guns they carry. The bullet is rubber and disperses paint. Nearly two dozen officers took part in the exercise, searching for the gunman and working to get the victims to safety where they were met by EMTs. There is a contact team that goes in first, then a rescue team, and the officers were able to rotate through in every position, says Buzbee, who noted her team was impressed with local officers. What pleased her most was how many officers participated. They didnt get paid, but they wanted the training and they showed up, she points out. The sheriff and police chief were there all day that is huge.

the county government and its time to stop it. The county commission is the front line to democracy. Calhoun County is a county of proud working people and presently our county agencies are keeping the millage high so we can qualify for grants. It should not be that way. If theres extra money floating around, dont tax us so much. Were doing all this infrastructure creation. Down the road, were not going to be able to afford to maintain it. Were getting top heavy. We should be living within our means. Youve got everybody cutting back why shouldnt our county, our state, our federal government? Wise says he feels the board is not in control of their budget, but is urging his fellow board members to join him in taking back control and reducing taxpayer costs. I was looking at the Union County budget and theyre similar in population and their departments are less than our budgets, he points out. Wise encourages local residents who feel the same to speak up and get involved. Its time for us to take back America, he stresses. If the people dont like something being done, turn around and do something about it. Call [your elected officials] on the carpet they work for us. People are going to have to start participating in their local decisions and tell their local representatives what they want what they need. [Reform] has to start at the local level. The Commission meeting is set for Tuesday, August 3, at 2 p.m. in the Extension Office board room. If you cant attend, be sure to contact your commissioner before the meeting to express your views. Wise says he has already been approached since last weeks meeting with requests to not proceed with his proposal, but he is determined to fight the fight. And hold on tight Wise has another recommendation in store: My next proposal is going to be to reduce elected officials salaries by 25 percent. To the Editor: Yes, Cliff Leonard is a remarkable and talented man. Your July 14, 2010, article was indeed wonderful and enlightening to read as well as the June 18, 2010, article in my local Times Union paper. Cliff has always had a "mission" honoring military men and women. I have been to his home and watched him work in his studio. He is patient, detailed and so "driven" in this heart of whatever he is working on during the moment. You see, I am his cousin! My late father, Charles Leonard Anders, and Cliff's father were "double cousins". The Anders and the Leonard families married brothers and sisters within each family in Bladen County, North Carolina. Some Leonards and Anders moved to our hometown, Blountstown, Florida, (Calhoun County), home of the late Governor Fuller Warren. Yes, the families grew up in this sweet, small, family oriented town. Everyone knew each other and watched out for us. I can still vividly hear my late mama and daddy calling we four Anders children from wherever we were in the neighborhood or in the home and telling us that cousin Cliff was home on leave from the war and was coming to see us! I am the baby of the four Anders children. I could hardly wait to see Cliff proudly wearing his Marine uniform to our home! I thought he was so "famous" and so proud that he was fighting for our freedom and our great country, the United States of America! Cliff has always been a great story teller and a wonderful friend to me. Most Anders and Leonards are good at these attributes. Yes, he is still helping others now as he honors those wonderful military men and women through his skill in sculpturing those who have served our country proudly and died for all of us. Thanks, Cliff. Cousin Jane Anders Ruffin Jacksonville, Florida Dear Editor: Lets hope that whoever bound two kittens with fishing line and left them on a boat in West Palm Beach possibly to use them as alligator baitis quickly apprehended and charged with cruelty to animals. There is no excuse for cruelty, but readers can help prevent other cats and dogs from being abused by never allowing animals outdoors unattended or advertising animals free to a good home. Every day, countless animals across the country are used for target practice, stolen for experimentation, poisoned, used in dogfighting, and worse after being left outside alone. Most of the more than 300 new cruelty cases PETA receives weekly involve animals who were victimized while outside unattended. Many unscrupulous people also obtain free animals through ads and use them as bait, sell them to laboratories for experiments, or abuse and kill them in other ways. People who must part with their animals should take them to a reputable, open-admission shelter where they will be safe, cared for, and will have aThe County Record, JULY 28, 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.

He is shown (left) receiving his diploma after graduating from the Florida Association of Counties Certification Program. He plans to attend an advanced program next. Pickron is reportedly the only certified commissioner on the board and may be the first in county history.The Florida Association of Counties (FAC) presented Calhoun County Commissioner Harold Pickron with the Certified County Commissioner (CCC) designation following his completion of a comprehensive study program developed by the association.

However, county commissioners may voluntarily enroll in the program and complete a series of courses totaling 42 hours.

This certification allows our citizen electorate to become experts in county government improving their communities, said FAC Executive Director Chris Holley. The more than 280 graduates is a testament to the importance of this program to Florida and our counties The CCC program coursework covers a variety of topics, such as county government roles and responsibilities, county government structure and authority, financial management, ethics and sunshine law, negotiation skills, economic development, and effective communication. Completion of all coursework averages 18 to 24 months.

Staff members from the Emerald Coast Hospice office here will be blanketing Jackson, Calhoun, Holmes and Washington counties Aug. 1-31, distributing food collection bags and gathering donations for Chipola Family Ministries as part of the Companys 6th Annual Food Drive. Emerald Coast Hospice employees at the Marianna office and their counterparts around the country are placing the food collection bags at various locations in their respective communities and will collect their harvest during the entire month of August. They are focused on beating last years national record, when the companys 5th Annual Food Drive yielded more than 94,000 pounds of goods for donation to charitable organizations across the country. As active members of the community, we know that food banks, pantries and other charitable organizations face rising demand and a chronic lack of necessary supplies due to the economy and global food shortages, said Ronni Bowen RN, Marianna Account Executive. We also know that proper nutrition is important for the well-being of the people that we serve. In these especially hard economic times, more people are at risk for poor nutrition and hunger. Emerald Coast Hospice provides home hospice services to patients in Jackson, Calhoun, Holmes and Washington counties.

Don't get overwhelmed by all the clutter; 15 minutes a day over what you do in your routines.

So he bought a second car the same model for parts. He is pretty good at fixing anything. It took both cars to keep just one running. He was left with only the stripped down parts car. Over an entire summer, he systematically cut that car(with a hack saw) into dinner plate sized parts and sent it to the landfill one plate at a time. It was his goal to do something to dismantle this car each day. At the end of the summer he was finished. It was almost therapy for my sweetie: the car had betrayed him. That car was a pain and he got rid of it one bite at a time. Beware of the anger of a patient man. The reason I mentioned this story, is because in our impatience to see our homes clean, we over-do. Then we get overwhelmed and we QUIT. I want you to do a little every day and not crash and burn: BabySteps, 15 minutes of decluttering and consistency will be the keys to your clean home and your peace. If you are not being consistent with your routines, even small ones, then you are not going to have your goal of a clean and peaceful home. This hit and miss attitude is what got your home in a mess to start with. You clean like a banshee for two days because of guests, and then when they leave, you let things go to pot because you are worn to a frazzle. This has got to stop; I want you to enjoy your home, your family and your guests. You can't do this if you are exhausted. I want your pledge to stop, "crisis cleaning". That you will commit to doing your routines DAILY, and that you will spend 15 minutes decluttering each day. I am not the drill sergeant that many of you think I am. I don't spend all day cleaning. Even when I was decluttering I only did 15 minutes a day. I used the 27 Fling Boogie to declutter our home. It was almost as if I didn't clean at all. After three months of decluttering every day and doing my routines, our home became a paradise, instead of the pig sty that is was. Every morning and walk into a clean and shining home and it is still a big shock and a GO ME moment for me. I would walk into my clean kitchen and just smile. Some of you know what I am talking about. It is a pleasure to not be greeted by mystery water and yesterday's dirty dishes and feel like you are behind before you even make your coffee. I want you to smile when you walk into your kitchen each morning. Visualize your clean and peaceful home. Let go of your perfectionism and impatience and take babysteps. You can do this; if you will just eat this elephant one bite at a time.For more help getting rid of your CHAOS, check out her website at www.FlyLady.net Senior Citizens seeking auction items for Death By Chocolate' August 19thSit-n-Sew gathering in Bristol on Wednesdays Happy 12th Birthday, Chasen!Love, your familyHappy 3rd Birthday!

On that date the business will be up for foreclosure sale on the courthouse steps, a day which owner Jeff Kindelspire has been fighting against for many, many hard months. The crux of the story is that the business was in the middle of an ambitious expansion into a full amusement center complex which wold have attracted business from all surrounding counties, when the financial crash struck. Their timing could not have been worse. They were left with a 60% finished project, no available financing for completion, and a heavy debt service which depended on completion of the project for the needed cash flow. The core of the business, the bowling center, has always been profitable. It remains profitable, still generating the needed business activity for success...but unable to carry the extra fixed overhead cost burden created by the unfinished amusement center. About 500 children and teens enjoy the center each week. Had the economy remained robust, had the banking systems remained accessible, had investor speculation remained positive and active...Jeff would have succeeded with no problem. This is one of the core businesses of our community. It has always created a family oriented, Christian, humanitarian environment for our children and our families to enjoy. They have always provided steady employment for around forty citizens, and have been a safe haven for parents to allow their children to enjoy. They have always helped programs for the handicapped at Sunland, have always had some of these disadvantaged working the facility...thus demonstrating a benevolent, caring philosophy. Without Kindel lanes in our community, we will certainly be worsened. Our children will have no place to gather socially for wholesome, supervised activities. They will be relegated to clustering in vacant parking lots, or building bonfires in remote farm field where their activities will be uncontrolled. Jeff Kindelspire has never been one to give up. He is stilling hoping an investor partner will appear to save the day for the business before the vultures swoop down from their lofty perches to consume the business. "A participant would get a much better deal before the sale than they were able to get after the foreclosure, where they will have to deal with the creditors," Kindelspire states. It appears that around $400,000 is needed to save the $2,500,000 investment. That would complete the amusement center and inside facilities in the new addition. Another $250,000 would be needed to also complete the go-cart portion, but can be deferred even though the paving is already completed for the track. It seems bewildered to see $1,000,000 being spent by our government on sidewalks which will provide little social benefit and no permanent employment, while small businesses such as Kindel Lanes suffer and perhaps close due the unavailability of financing. And this financing would eventually be paid back from continuing operations. The completed center would employ around 80 people, provide a real attraction for our community, and a safe haven for our children to enjoy. As Spock of Star Trek would say, "It's Illogical".

June and July have been busy months for Calhoun County 4-H. June 14-16 youth attended a week long residential camp at 4-H Camp Timpoochee where they learned sport fishing, archery, kayaking, snorkeling, line dancing, new crafts and more. There was additional fun to be had on June 23 and 24 when two days of fishing, sports, water games, and other exciting activities were available for youth who participated in the Summer Fun with 4-H and SWAT! camp. This camp, which was a partnership with the Calhoun County Health Department and Calhoun County Tobacco Prevention Program, taught youth how using tobacco directly influences ones quality of life. 4-Hers wrapped up the month of June with another amazing partnership with the Calhoun County Health Department and the Power of Wisdom program. June 29 and 30 brought true beauty to the forefront of discussion for campers. Themes for the Because Im Worth It! day camp included modesty in clothing and behavior, manners and etiquette, skin care, sun safety, proper language, positive choices, and more. Participants enjoyed putting their new knowledge to the test with makeovers at our local Merle Norman and lunch at Wisteria Caf. Archery was the aim of our most recent camp. July 20 and 21, volunteer Brooks Varnum put his 4-H shooting sports instructor training to the test when he taught youth the art of shooting a long bow. After a day of safety, equipment, and range rules instruction the campers set out to the Blountstown Police Departments training and practice range to put their knowledge into action. They enjoyed shooting several practice rounds, a team competition, and a fun shoot. Enthusiasm was so high at the conclusion of day two that each youth committed to practicing their archery skills throughout the year, so they would be ready for the state 4-H archery tournament next March. If you or someone you know is interested in joining 4-H or volunteering with 4-H, please contact Whitney Cherry at the Calhoun County Extension Office. (850) 674-8323.

These conditions can cause fish kills, which are natural occurrences and typically do not cause permanent damage to the ecosystem or to fish populations. Many factors can contribute to a fish kill. Some fish kills are complex and involve a variety of factors that may not be easily discernable. However, most common causes of kills in brackish estuaries, freshwater lakes and man-made retention ponds are well understood by scientists. Fish kills are commonly caused by weather-related factors. Sudden temperature fluctuations or extreme temperatures can result in fish kills any time of the year. Hot weather during the summer months can cause fish kills because warm water holds less oxygen than cold water. In addition, a lack of rain during hot-weather months lowers the water levels in the system, heating the water and further depleting the oxygen in the system. Fish kills also can occur during extended periods with little sunshine. The process leading to these types of die-offs begins with overcast skies and rainy weather. During extended periods of overcast, rainy or cloudy weather, the biological system uses the dissolved oxygen in the water faster than it can produce it. Rain water can compound the situation by causing vegetation, such as dead leaves and grass clippings, to wash into the system and decompose. The decomposition process also can remove oxygen from the water. The good news is that most natural water bodies are resilient to these types of fish kill events. It is important for Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) scientists to keep track of the location and extent of fish kills in natural lakes and estuaries to see if there are serious problems developing in an ecosystem that might require investigation or restorative measures. Residents can report fish kills in natural water bodies to the FWC at http://research.MyFWC.co m/fishkill/submit.asp or call the FWC Fish Kill Hotline at 800-636-0511. It is not necessary to report fish kills in man-made retention or private ponds to the FWC.

More often than not, traveling off the beaten path can lead to unexpected pleasure. Out Highway 20, and down 287 just such a surprise was discovered upon viewing the home, garden, and grounds of Harvey and Barbara Ellison. Surrounded by low native bushes and shrubs, the Ellison abode has colorful potted flowers lining the front porch. Around the side of the house and in back, blooming crepe myrtle, and even a wooden swing appears, and beckons the visitor to come and sit for a spell. One knows, as they view acre after acre of trees and lush green, that the steward of this land knew and loved his craft well. Harvey and Barbara hail from Broward County and have resided here for some fourteen years. A grounds manager for the Broward College system, Ellison's fine work ethic, knowledge in planning and managing land design, made him a perfect keeper of the earth. With expertise, compassion, and honor in all he does, it feels good to know that Harvey is one of a special group who cherish the land and our vital resources. Barbara, multi-talented in her own right, currently serves as 'Greeter' at the Blountstown First Baptist Church. Travel is also part of her busy agenda since she is a certified judge with the American Quarterhorse Association. Barbara and Harvey hold special positions of honor as Grand Matron and Grand Patron in the local Eastern Star Chapter #179. Our community appreciates this vital and energetic twosome. We thank them for creating, sharing, and maintaining such a special and beautiful space in our community.The County Record, JULY 28, 2010, P P a a g g e e 8 8 BUSINESS DIRECTORY BUSINESS DIRECTORY BUSINESS DIRECTORY FOR SPECIAL RATES ON THESE SPACES CALL 674-5041 Heating, Air Conditioning & Insulation Serving This Area For 31 Years Full Time Office and Sales Department 20567 NW Depot Avenue BLOUNTSTOWN, FL W W W H H H A A A L L L E E E Y Y Y850-674-4777 Lic.#RM0044558 GRIFFIN SAND & CONCRETE Co., Inc. 20301 NW Evans Avenue Blountstsown, FL 32424 FAX: 850-674-2209 OFFICE: 850-674-8664 WAYNE WALDEN CELL: 850-643-6162 JASON SUGGS CELL:..850-557-7207 100% LOCAL 100% FAMILY Well Drilling Mike Purvis, Owner LICENSED DRILLERS SALES & REPAIRS 674-8942 CAPPS AND REFRIGERATION Sales and Service of All Types Heating & A/C Units, Ice Machines & Cold Storage HWY. 20 WEST -BLOUNTSTOWN, FLA............. 674-8538 George White, Owner/Operator CERTIFIED MECHANICAL CONTRACTOR CMC1249448 #ER0002898 #MV-21777 GOODMAN MANITOWOC Ice Machines HOSHIZAKI Ice Machines SERVING THIS AREA SINCE 1962 WHITE'S AIR CONDITIONING, INC "No Job Too Big or Small" CONCRETE WORK LANDSCAPING PRESSURE CLEANING CERAMIC TILE SEAMLESS GUTTERS PAINTING SCREEN ENCLOSURES 850-674-8092 Cell: 573-0616 Williams Home ImprovementsServing Calhoun County Since 1990 NO MONEY UP FRONT PAY UPON COMPLETION HONEST DEPENDABLE FREE ESTIMATES Res.

Through the calls they suspected Jackson and Lewis-Jordan were going to attempt to smuggle narcotics into the facility. LCSO Lt. Todd Wheetley and CCSO Deputy Eddie Dalton responded to LCI Saturday morning with Daltons K-9, Gina, and watched as Jackson and Lewis-Jordan arrived in the facilitys parking lot. The women walked to the front gate, then Jackson returned to the vehicle a short time later, opened the trunk, then returned to the gate. After the women were in the prison compound, investigators approached their vehicle. K-9 Gina sniffed the exterior and alerted to the presence of illegal drugs. LewisJordan and Jackson were then escorted out of the facility and back to their vehicle. Both suspects reportedly appeared nervous. They were informed of the K-9 alert and a search of the vehicle began. A plastic bag was found containing two soda cans and a substance wrapped in foil. Several small bags of marijuana were found inside the soda cans and the tin foil contained a large plastic bag of marijuana. After their arrest, Lewis-Jordan gave a recorded statement admitting that she and Jackson had packaged the marijuana at her home and were planning to meet a guy named Dee at a gas station on CR 267 to give him the marijuana. She described the vehicle he would be driving and provided the phone number she was given. The information was provided to the prison inspectors who believed Dee was most likely a correctional officer named Donquis Green who was on duty at the time. Investigators stood by Greens vehicle, dialed the cell number Lewis-Jordan had for Dee, and listened as a cell phone rang in Greens vehicle that fit the description of the SUV the women were to meet at the gas station. Green was brought to the LCI administration building for questioning. In a recorded statement, he said he was approached by inmate George Jordan in reference to meeting Jordans mother and bringing marijuana into the prison. Green advised he was to receive $500 for his role in the deal. All three were booked into the Liberty County Jail. Bond was revoked on Jackson who was wanted in Polk County for violation of probation. Drug arrests at LCI continued LEWIS-JORDANJACKSON
