A press conference was held in Liberty County Friday with Congressman Allen Boyd on hand for the announcement. If you dont have it [broadband], you are left out in the cold when it comes to economic development, Boyd remarked during Fridays press conference. This is going to make a heck of a difference to our communities. Formed by Florida's Heartland REDI in the South and Opportunity Florida in Northwest Florida these two economic development organizations teamed to compete for funding this life-changing project. Government Services Group manages FRBA administration and will be responsible for grant administration. The grant is part of the Broadband Technology Opportunity Program to expand broadband access and adoption across the United States. It is part of the Recovery Act Investments Stimulus Package. This project will deploy the Middle Mile of critical infrastructure to link large scale service providers with local, retail service providers. The FRBA network will deploy microwave, fixed wireless architecture and technology. It is designed to deliver high capacity and cost-effective Middle Mile infrastructure extending the Internet backbone and providing a platform for education, health care and public safety services, economic development and a host of benefits. In short, this project will open these communities to the rest of the world. FRBA is comprised of two Rural Areas of Critical Economic Concern (RACECs) established by Floridas Governor. The South Central RACEC includes DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, Hendry, Highlands and Okeechobee Counties as well as the unincorporated area of Immokalee in Collier County and Seminole tribal lands.

REVIEW OF PROVISIONAL BALLOTSCalhoun County
BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News EditorThere wasnt a dry eye in the house Saturday night at the Blountstown High School Auditorium after hometown hero, Lt. Col. Ty Edwards, wheeled his chair around, faced the crowd, and talked about his life since being ambushed in Afghanistan nearly two years ago. This Marine thanked his wife, Anna, family, friends and the soldiers who risked their own lives to help him that day in October of 2008 when he was shot. They are the heroes, he remarked, wiping away a few tears of his own. The local Woodmen of the World Lodge presented the tribute to Ty and all military personnel with Howard Johnson, Sr. coordinating the event. The evening included a pictorial tribute to Ty, along with presentations by several of his former teachers who told of the boy who had set his sights on becoming a Marine at a young age and followed through to achieve his dream. Tys father, Tommy Edwards, described the chain of events that occurred after the attack in Afghanistan, noting all the angels God put in his familys path, from a cousin who flew Ty to a military hospital, Renee Jeppson of Blountstown meeting his wife in Germany, and other miracles that helped them know, as Tommy said, Ty was going to be okay. His father also told of the day a soldier, who had lost one of his legs, came to visit Ty in the hospital and stood the entire time. I tried to get him to have a seat, but he said he wouldnt sit in the presence of a Lt. Colonel. When he started to leave, he saluted Ty. Although Ty had no use of his right arm and was just gaining strength in his other arm, he struggled to respond. It felt like five minutes went by, Tommy recalled. But Ty raised his left arm and returned that salute, noting that he was soaked as it took every bit of effort he had in him to do it, but he was determined. Sharon Leonard McCrone read a letter from Maj. Gene Duncan who told of the boy who used to visit his print shop to talk war stories. Maj. Duncan, in his 80s, flies monthly to visit Ty in Tampa. Former BHSAg teacher Robert Wiltse (shown at right) described the freshman who helped lead his team to a state championship parliamentary procedure win in 1985. The team went on to nationals, but a scoring glitch cost them the title. The winning team came up to us and actually told us we had really won it, Wiltse recalled. Before Saturdays event, he scrambled to find an FFA jacket to present Ty. Tucked in the corner of a closet in the Ag building at BHS, he discovered Tys old jacket, had it framed and told Ty it would be on permanent display at the Ag building to help inspire other students. The event concluded with Ellis Nichols of the Woodmen of the World (shown above) presenting awards to Ty and his entire family for their sacrifice for our country.The County Record, AUGUST 25, 2010, Page 2 CALHOUN & LIBERTY COUNTYSHERIFF'S LOGC C A A L L H H O O U U N N C C O O U U N N T T Y Y A A u u g g . 1 1 4 4 : : Marvin Lee Johnson, VOP; Gary Bernard Watson, DWLSR with knowledge A A u u g g . 1 1 5 5 : : Janie Leann Dalton, battery, criminal mischief; James Paul Tucker, battery on law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence, criminal mischief A A u u g g . 1 1 6 6 : : Samuel Rubin Inman, possession l/t 20 grams marijuana, drug paraphernalia; Jamar Kareen Barriner, poss. l/t 20 grams marijuana, drug paraphernalia; Cory Ray Bates, VOP; Bryant Dwayne Washington, VOP; Harry Lewis Patrick, DWLSR, unlawful speed A A u u g g . 1 1 7 7 : : Harry Carl Brewster, VOP; Jeffery Tipton, failure to appear; Vicki Lynn King, VOP; William Davis, VOP; Chantell Pickens, VOP; Lori Sansom, VOP; Brandon Conyers, aggravated battery on pregnant victim A A u u g g . 1 1 8 8 : : Karnell Antwan Simmons, burglary, domestic battery, criminal mischief A A u u g g . 1 1 9 9 : : Arlon Keith Burke, conspiracy to manufacture meth; Richard A.

The rain slowed the grilling down and made some deliveries late, thanks for understanding. When times are hard and life gives you a kick, you often wonder how much more can you take? Living in a community that goes all out to help one of theirs is a true blessing for me and my family. The outpouring of love and support that was given to us is humbling. Remembering to count our blessings name them one by one will be easier to do in these hard times. We would like to take the time to say thank you to the community and all the people that worked so hard to make the fundraiser a success. The hard work from the cooks, the workers who fixed plates, and delivered plates was greatly appreciated. Special thanks to the following businesses for their donations: Ricky Mayo with the PBA, KFC, Subway, Harveys Supermarket, King House, Flowers Baking Company, and Alco, all in Blountstown, Apalachee Restaurant in Bristol, Busy Boys, and Crows Corner both in Hosford, Florida Police Benevolent Association in Tallahassee and Winn Dixie in Panama City.

The County Record, AUGUST 25, 2010, P P a a g g e e 6 6Tiger pride at the pep rally! Tiger pride abounded at the Blountstown High School Auditorium Tuesday night where a community pep rally was held. Tiger fans met the varsity and J.V. football and volleyball teams, along with the cheerleaders. The crowd got the fighting Tigers fired up for the Kickoff Classic against Freeport set for Friday night at Bowles Field. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. Come out and show your Tiger pride! by Blountstown Tiger Head Coach Greg Jorda n This week things are off to a full swing with the Community Pep Rally and hosting the Kick Off Classic vs Freeport on Friday night with the kick off at 7:00. We hosted the Michael Guilford Future Tiger Camp this past Saturday with a great turn out of nearly 80 campers grades 1-8. I would like to give a special thanks to Todd McClellan for all his work leading up to the camp. We would also like to thank the sponsors of the camp McClellan'c Chiropractic, Hungry Howies, Ramsey's Piggly Wiggly, Blount Insurance Agency and Blountstown Health and Rehab. This was a great time for the kids and hopefully they learned some skills while they were at the camp. Back to football the Tigers are in for another tough fight with Freeport this week. In the spring game, Freeport traveled to Graceville and won easily. This will be a good barometer of where we are as a team early in the year. We will find our areas of weakness early and be able to improve on them heading in to the regular season. The Tigers return 11 seniors that should provide good leadership for this football team. We are heading in to the pre-season week with 47 total players between the JV and Varsity football teams. This week we will dress nearly 40 players because there is no JV game this week. The Varsity team will have 23 players and the JV will have 24 once both seasons begin next week. We hope all the Tiger fans come out to see the pre-season game this week. This game is not in the season ticket package because it is considered a jamboree by the state association. The cost will be $5 per person to get in to the game.

After completing an internal review, the FWC worked with other agencies and stakeholders in identifying and recommending these proposed changes, which may need to be made to Florida's hunting and fishing regulations. Hunters and anglers are encouraged to visit MyFWC.com/RULESANDREGS/Rules_Proposed_ Explanation.htm to see a listing of proposed changes and give their public comments and feedback. The last day to submit comments or suggestions on these changes is Sept. 24, by 5 p.m. (EDT). After Sept. 24, FWC staff will summarize all comments received on each rule change proposal and present those summaries to its seven-member Commission at its Nov. 1718 meeting in Naples. Any draft rule changes approved at this Commission meeting will be published in the Florida Administrative Weekly and considered for final adoption at the February FWC Commission meeting in Apalachicola. If approved, most rule changes would become effective July 1, 2011. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will accept applications to be included in a random drawing for daily dove hunt permits that began Tuesday, Aug. 24, and will continue through 11:59 p.m. Sept. 7. Application worksheets are available at MyFWC.com/Hunting under "Limited Entry Hunts." There is no cost to apply. Sportsmen may apply for these permits at www.fl.wildlifelicense.com, by calling 888-HUNTFLORIDA (486-8356), or in person at county tax collectors' offices or license agents. Permits are available for the following special-opportunity public dove fields: Allapattah Flats Wildlife Management Area (WMA) in Martin County; Caravelle Ranch WMA in Putnam County; Combs Farm Public Small-game Hunting Area (PSGHA) in Baker County; Hilochee WMA in Lake County; North Newberry PSGHA in Alachua County; and Frog Pond WMA in Miami-Dade County (Lead shot is prohibited on this area. Hunters are required to use U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service-approved, non-toxic shot). If successful in the random drawing, sportsmen will have to purchase their permits by Sept. 26, or the permit will be offered to the public on a first-come, firstserved basis during Phase II. The cost for a permit is $35, which entitles one adult and one youth (under age 16) to hunt together, but allows only one daily bag limit of doves to be harvested between them. Successful applicants also will have the option of buying a $10 youth permit at the same time they purchase a daily dove hunt permit. This entitles the youth (under age 16), while hunting under the supervision of the adult permit holder, to harvest his own daily bag limit of birds. "These dove fields are planted and managed by the FWC and offer great hunting opportunities in a friendly, social atmosphere that provides the perfect setting for friends and family, including youngsters, to hunt together," said Kurt Hodges, FWC small-game biologist. Beginning Sept. 30, upto-date information on field conditions and bird numbers will be available from the Dove Hunter's Hotline at MyFWC.com/Dove.

CCC class news This summer the Calhoun County Challenge Classroom created an extraordinary classroom in their building! The Sensory Room was designed with the purpose of creating a room where students will feel free to relax and have no pressure to achieve tasks. Also, there is no need to fight for attention, just sit and experience the room. When the lights are out and the music is playing in the Sensory Room, you will see multicolored fiber optic lights raining from the ceiling in one corner, vibrant bubbles rippling in a five foot vertical tube, and you can watch a peaceful motion picture that is projected on one of the walls! Mrs. Sandra White, the CCC Classroom teacher, has been very pleased and satisfied with the results of the Sensory Room. My students look forward to our time in the room! The room has a great calming effect on everyone! The CCC Class would like to send a special thank you to Mr. David White for his work on this project, the Painting Ladies for their great job of painting, and Mr. George White from Maintenance for the electrical work.

I did everything I could to run a clean race: To stick strictly to the facts, to report what Ive seen over the past years of attending meetings as a concerned citizen; and to run for the seat, not against any one person. My advertisements spoke of my personal accomplishments throughout my life, about my history to better help you know me, and my constant desire to help others succeed. I encourage you to join me in becoming involved with your county government. Lets become victors together and not victims. Lets stay informed, even if we have to proactively seek out the information. Lets mentor the children of the county to success and that the road, though not always easy, is able to be conquered. I pray for our children, their parents and families, our schools and our leaders. I pray ALL our schools remain open and are well funded, and for the teachers who have such influence over the students. Take care and lets all work together to make Calhoun County great! God bless Calhoun County. And God bless America!

No written contract was necessary. The follow through was assured on the basis of the trustworthiness of the one making the promise. But there is the real rub: how trustworthy is that person? What is his or her reputation concerning promises made? Nowhere on the contemporary scene is this issue more clearly illustrated than in the prevailing attitude toward marriage vows. Why the alarming divorce rate? What happens to the good intentions expressed at the altar? There seems to be a hidden "if" clause in the contract. Legitimate grounds for divorce do exist, but the disturbing number of break-ups can be accounted for largely by the too-casual attitudes toward the marriage covenant in the first place. It is basically a matter of conscience. As Napoleon once said, "There is no class of men so difficult to be managed as those whose intentions are honest, but whose consciences are bewitched." One person put it this way: "Intentions are very mortal and perishable things; like a very mellow and choice fruit, they are difficult to keep." But that's a very good test of our character, isn't it?Arrow of Truthby Rev. R.W. Waterman

People who love grieve. There are no exceptions. Grief may be normal, yet saying it is normal does not minimize its difficulty. Grief is one of lifes most challenging experiences. We dont know what to expect, what emotions we will experience, or how long we will grieve. To experience grief is to acknowledge that you have loved someone, and now that person has gone. If you hadnt needed that relationship, or risked the emotional attachment, you wouldnt be feeling the loss. It is a high compliment to any relationship that we miss it enough to shed a tear. Tears are not a sign of weakness, but an indication of how special the relationship was, and now that it is gone, we miss it. We hope you find comfort in your cherished memoriesand may love be what you remember most of all.

The phone calls, errand runs, visits, flowers, cards and food have been a tremendous blessing to us. To our pastor at Lighthouse Ministries in Port St. Joe, Rev. Tim Bailey and Sister Wanda, your love and support through this journey has been Gods hand extended to Paul and our family. Paul deeply loved and valued you and our entire church family. Pauls sister and brother-in-law, Eva and Gundy Weston, walked this 2_ year journey with us, so to them and the others who occasionally sat with Paul (Tony, Theo, William Earl and Johnnie), please accept our sincere appreciation. To Dr. Tom Curry and the staff at Shoreline Medical, thank you for the amazing, compassionate care Paul received as the patient and the support we received as caregivers from Rena and her staff at Covenant Hospice (Linda, Dee, Janie, Dixie, Monica, Kelly, Kristen and Chaplain Charles). Thanks for ministering to Paul and us. Thanks to Pastor James Wiley and Oak Grove Church for graciously allowing us to use your facilities for the service. Also, we are grateful to the awesome cooks at Lighthouse Ministries, Oak Grove Church and Highland View Church of God for the meal you prepared for our family after the service. To Eddie Martin, what a blessing you are. Thanks to the pallbearers (Pete Harrell, Theo Johnson, Roy Lollie, Jr., Ralph Knight, Morrell Bailey and Tony Barbee), to those who assisted Bro. Tim with the services (Pastor James Wiley, Rev. Dave Fernandez, Pastor Howard Browning, Sheriff Frank McKeithen, Coach Vern Eppinette, Marvin Sewell, William Earl Sewell and Rev. Clair Uitts), to the Bailey Family and Mitch for ministering to our hearts musically, and to Tim Wilder, thanks for just being with us. Paul dearly loved each of you. On his last trip to THE DOME in March we were deeply touched when Coach Derek Kurnitsky and the basketball team took the time to greet Paul at his usual spot near the stage just prior to the game. Your gesture meant the world to Paul and to us. (Also, Coach K, thanks for always having an extra cap and shirt that just happened to be Pauls size.) Coach Eppinette pegged it right at the service when he spoke of Paul being a longtime avid supporter of the Tiger Sharks. He loved you both. To Suzanne & Bart and the Southerland Funeral Home Family we shall be forever grateful for your genuine compassionate care and professionalism. You promised to guide us step by step and you did exactly that. To Lynne and her staff at Bayside Florist, thank you for caring enough to send your best. The consensus of our family is this: Paul never lived and spoke more clearly to us than he did during these past 2 1/2 years. He taught us how to die in absolute peace with God and those around him. He taught us by example that life is too short to take opportunities for granted. He taught us that it is foolish to leave words unspoken, love unexpressed and forgiveness withheld. If it needs to be said and done then it should be said and done. We believe if Paul could speak to us today he would not tell us to keep up with the ballgame stats. He would not tell us to burn the candle at both ends to gain more stuff or mens applause. Without a doubt, he would tell us to keep Christ as the center of our lives and to serve him with all our heart. He would tell us to walk the talk. He would tell us to open our eyes, ears and hearts to those around us and to demonstrate our love for Christ by loving and serving others. Now, that is a legacy to be proud of.

Place Your Order With Us For Fast Service at Reasonable Prices The County Record Between Hopkins and Badcock 674-5041 Northwest RACEC includes Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty and Washington Counties. These two RACECs represent nearly 20 percent of the land area of the State of Florida and have a total population of 437,946, but only 39 percent have broadband access. This shows how regional cooperation is essential to the economic growth and vitality of northwest Florida's rural counties, said Rick Marcum, Executive Director of Opportunity Florida. With this grant our economic development efforts will take a giant leap forward. The Opportunity Florida region has some of the most beautiful real estate in Florida. We have dedicated leadership in both the public and private sectors. With high-speed broadband access, well be extremely competitive in the marketplace for good jobs, enhanced education and health care. This is not just Opportunity Florida and FHREDI, said Johnny Eubanks, Chairman, FRBA. In each of these areas, private sector, public sector and nonprofits have come together and committed resources and time to ensure that we could collectively make something extraordinary happen. Because of their commitment, two rural regions of critical economic concern will have the opportunity to be two areas of economic vitality. Vicki Montford, Opportunity Florida Board Secretary stated, "Adding the Middle Mile will improve healthcare access for our residents and that is a priority for each of our eight counties. And of course, connecting our businesses to the world accelerates our ability to participate in the global economy. On a personal level, this grant makes it possible for our children and their children to not be forced to move away but remain here and prosper for generations to come.Broadband cont'd H H a a p p p p y y 1 1 s s t t B B i i r r t t h h d d a a y y !
