For more than three and a half decades, Glenn Kimbrel has served as a leader of our local law enforcement community. Monday afternoon, co-workers, Council members, family and friends gathered at the Blountstown Police Department to honor him with a retirement party. Starting out as an officer back in 1975, Glenn moved up with the department and was named police chief following the retirement of Winston Deason who now serves as mayor. Chief Kimbrel has passionately served our community over the years, not only protecting residents and businesses against crime, but volunteering countless hours to civic groups and those in need. We salute you, Chief Kimbrel, and wish you well on your retirement! Above, in a photo from days gone by, a young Officer Kimbrel is shown standing between Archie Faircloth and J.L. Bailey on the middle row, with Mayor Deason on the end. BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News EditorA man wanted for allegedly stealing then crashing a car was taken into custody Saturday. Elijah A.

Upon arrival, he was met by Jimmie Cliff Crawford, Jr., 21, who advised he owned the vehicle that was in the woods.

Jessie Mae Price, President of this town's Woman's Club, met with her community service club members on January 19, at the W.T. Neal Civic Center. This monthly 'brown bag' lunch and business meeting indeed, was "SOMETHING TO CROW ABOUT." This is the theme for the February 26 Art & Craft Festival, to be hosted by our Blountstown group. The devotional was done by Frances Price. It was noted that even though times were changeable, news these days seemed dark and unsettled, we all need to take heart, keep the faith, and 'look up' for guidance ad balance. Many good possibilities and opportunities and people surround each of us, and need to be aware of these positives in our lives. Drawing from Psalms 91-4, the Almighty will help guard and guide us, be a refuge. The Invocation followed these words of Hope. Gail Wood was Program Chairman. She introduced Roman Wood, Major at the County Sheriff's Department. Following lunch, he would speak to the group about the local K.I.S.S. program -Keeping Independent Seniors Safe. Lunch commenced with Hostesses Dot Ayers, Helen Maloy, and Jo Ann Barbour providing snacks and desserts and drinks. Helen was responsible for two rich and delicious cakes -a strawberry cheese and triple chocolate. Clara McCroan, it might be noted, was the drawing winner and received a huge Amaryllis bulb, just ready for planting. Roman Wood, guest speaker who has been with the Sheriff's Department for some 25 years, gave an interesting talk about K.I.S.S.. Currently, there are approximately 110 Seniors who are members. All a Senior has to do, should they be interested in membership, is to call the Sheriff's office, talk to the appropriate officer, and have their name placed on the roster for possible services. Something as simple as replacing a light bulb, if one is high risk for stool climbing, for instance, provides that no task is too small for assistance. There is also an annual local banquet, where various volunteers are honored. Officers serve the tables on this occasion. Major Woods brought up an interesting point, that being that many of the Deputies who have contact with seniors in the community, have been very impressed with the interest, good attitudes, and good neighboring that these folks prove to have. It proves again that this is a good community in which to live, and it is a safe one. All thanked Wood for his time and informative presentation. President Price opened the meeting for business. Again, the Arts & Crafts Festival was first and foremost on everyone's agenda. Seventy-five to 100 women from the GFWC Woman's Clubs in northern Florida will be present at the luncheon, and for the judging of art projects brought by each chapter attending this annual event. There could be as many as 115 plus items judged with top ribbon winners. Regarding lunch, the local club was delighted to have Marie Granger and her Culinary Arts group cater the meal plus serve. Club members will provide coffee, orange juice, and goodies for a Hospitality welcoming following registration. All were enthusiastic and looking forward to this extraThe County Record, FEBRUARY 2, 2011, P P a a g g e e 2 2 Our Staff Makes the Difference Blountstown Health & Rehab 16690 SW Chipola Road, Blountstown, Florida 850-674-4311 We invite you to come visit our facility in Blountstown.

ATTRACT SOME FEATHERED FRIENDS TO YOUR YARD The history of bird feeding in America dates back to the mid 1800’s. Today, more than 50 million Americans put out a billion pounds of birdfeed each year. In our area of north Florida, there are many colorful and lively birds that regularly visit feeders. If you already have bird feeders, or would like to attract some to your yard, here are a few things to consider. If you have the space, try putting feeders in different places and at different heights. Some birds like to feed near vegetation and others prefer to feed out in the open. By placing feeders in different areas, you will provide opportunities for a greater diversity of birds attracted to your yard. Also, this will help reduce the chance of aggressive individuals chasing all the other birds out of your yard. Locate the feeders so that you have a good view of the birds from where you want to watch them, but away from high traffic areas. If the feeders are near windows you may need to use window decals to discourage birds from flying into the glass. Make sure it is easily accessible and at least 10 feet from tree limbs and trunks to make it harder for squirrels to reach the seed. To provide birds safe haven from predators such as hawks and cats, place feeders about 12-15 feet from bushes. This gives birds a safe haven to fly into when threatened, and also prevents cats from sneaking up close to the feeders. Cats kill millions of birds each year. Choose a feeder based upon what kinds of birds you want to attract. If you choose platform feeders make sure they are made with mesh on the bottom to allow droppings to beThe County Record, FEBRUARY 2, 2011, P P a a g g e e 3 3 WT Neal CivicCenter 3rd Tuesdayofeach month at 3:30p.m. Calhoun County Tobacco Free Partnership OURCHILDREN.

What worked for them as real peopleŽ who have gone through this challenging experience? Most of us have experienced grief. This is something I ran across that was pretty profound: Grief never ends, but it changesƒIts a passage, not a place to stay. The sense of loss must give way if were to value the life that was lived. Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith. It is the price of love.Ž Grieving is a process that takes time.

Hiers (Offensive Lineman Award).The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service established Feb. 56 as Youth Waterfowl Hunting Days. These select days are a great opportunity to get young people outdoors and to introduce them to the excitement of waterfowl hunting. The statewide, two-day season allows children younger than 16 years old – with adult supervision – to hunt waterfowl, coots and common moorhens. Supervisors (18 years or older) must be present and may assist young hunters, but state regulations prohibit the supervisors from hunting. Hunters younger than 16 years of age do not need licenses, permits or federal duck stamps. All regulations and bag limits for hunting waterfowl apply to this two-day season. Hunting regulations are available online at MyFWC.com/Hunting or in the FWC’s waterfowl and coot seasons brochure, available at county tax collectors’ offices.The County Record, FEBRUARY 2, 2011, P P a a g g e e 7 7 AUTO SALES, INC. 19984 Central Ave. W  In Front of Alco RIVERTOWN Bring this ad and come see us on Central Ave. in front of Alco Was $14,200 ‘10 Chevy Impala.......$12,900 Was $8,995 ‘07 PT Cruiser..............$7,500 Was $11,500 ‘09 Dodge Avenger.....$10,900 Was $12,900 ‘08 Hyundai Tucson....$11,500 Was $11,500 ‘09 Mitz Galant....$10,900 Check out all of our great deals at www.rivertownautosales.com Tiger athletes honoredThe 2010 BHS Tiger football players were honored during an athletic banquet held Monday at the W.T.

100th Day of School Wednesday, January 26, was the 100th day of school at B.E.S. Pre-K and Kindergarten classes celebrated by wearing hats to lunch. First grade made projects that were made with 100 items. Celebrate Literacy Week B.E.S. is participating in "Celebrate Literacy Week" this week. The theme of this week is "Champions Read, Readers Lead"! High School Champion students from varsity athletic teams, culinary arts, and FFA teams came to B.E.S. on Wednesday and Thursday and read 2 books to all the classes. FCCLA District Competition FCCLA has been busy with their District Competition. The first round of competition started last Tuesday, January 25th, in Altha. Jake Brown placed 1st in the Talent Category where he performed a song that he wrote on his guitar. Cassius Jackson placed 1st in the Career Investigation Category where he presented a portfolio and an oral presentation. On January 27th, FCCLA District Competition continued in Marianna. The FCCLA culinary team consisting of Devan Rouhlac and Caitlyn Stewart brought home a silver medal and 1st place. All four students will compete at the state level in Orlando on April 27. FCCLA will finish District Competition on February 15th in Bethlehem. Mrs. Nancy Mears, FCCLA sponsor, will accompany the remaining members to this meeting where they will compete in three categories: Hospitality, Interior Design, and Entrepreneurship SWAT Guest Speaker On January 14th, SWAT sponsored an assembly that was hosted by Dr. Victor DeNoble. He discussed his life experience working with the tobacco companies in 1980, trying to find a replacement drug for nicotine. While conducting his studies, he came across the fact that nicotine actually changes the brain’s structure. After doing numerous studies on his rats to see why this changed the brain, he found that nicotine is the same as heroine. You get addicted and you will not want to quit. Dr. DeNoble was brave enough to do what many people couldn’t. He stood up to the tobacco companies. He fought to make the tobacco companies tell the whole world that what was in their cigarettes would slowly kill them. When the Tobacco companies went before congress so did Dr. Victor but only after a top secret phone call from President Bill Clinton. After the congressmen realized that the Nicotine was killing them the tobacco companies were forced to tell everyone the truth. By the end of his presentation the BHS audience was in awe of such a brave and daring individual. Everyone who attended the assembly truly enjoyed it and can not wait for Dr. Victor DeNoble to come back.

Scientists in the Making By: Kristen Majeske This year the fifth grade science teacher, Mrs. Pam Detweiler, and high school science teacher, Mr. Kevin Hand, have been paired together to give the fifth graders a wonderful handson learning experience. Mr. Hand visits Mrs. Detweiler’s classroom everyday and together they teach a science lesson which is followed up with an experiment. According to Levi Baggett, from the fifth grade class, the ‘sodium experiment’ was the class’ favorite experiment. They placed sodium in water and watched it catch on fire. Mrs. Stephanie Brogden, the assistant principal, says, “This is a great experience for our fifth graders to have two very talented teachers in the class who work well together to meet the needs of all the students. Mr. Hand is able to bring his knowledge of scientific experiments for the younger students to enjoy together with Mrs. Detweiler’s knowledge of the 5th grade science standards. It makes them a dynamic duo.”Culinary students are shown with Mrs. Granger at last year's dessert concert.

Tori Hathaway Congratulations!washed away in rain, and to allow air to circulate around the seeds keeping them dry. Both hopper and platform feeders tend to be used by many species of birds. Tube feeders are used by small, perching birds like goldfinches. Suet feeders, which contain rendered fat, attract woodpeckers as well as bluebirds, nuthatches, and wrens. Thistle feeders are specifically designed to hold thistle seeds and tend to attract finches. Nectar feeders are unique in providing nectar substitutes for hummingbirds and orioles. If you'd like to attract orioles, thrashers, and bluebirds, put out fruit using fruit feeders. The type of food you stock your feeder with plays a role in which birds you attract. Bags of mixed seeds often contain a lot of unwanted food. Birds can empty your feeder trying to get to their favorite food, which for most seems to be black oil sunflower. Try putting one type of seed in different feeders and see which birds you attract. Keep the feeders stocked with fresh dry seed. Remove moldy seed from feeders and clean them regularly; it is a good idea to clean and let a feeder dry out at least once a month, depending on how much use it gets. Don't use birdseed coated with a red or pink dye. This is a type of fungicide that can kill wild birds. If you store your birdseed outside, it is best to keep it in a securely closed metal container, as squirrels can chew through plastic containers. Happy birding!
