The accident occurred Feb. 1 just before noon on State Road 20 at Cedar Beach Cove. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Tony A. Hall, 49, of Clarksville, was westbound on SR20 in a 2009 International Tractor Trailer. He was traveling behind a 1987 Chevy Astro driven by David L. Waters, 61 of Freeport. As Waters slowed to make a right hand turn, Hall failed to stop in time and then attempted to veer to the left to avoid hitting Waters. As a result, the right front of the tractor trailer collided with the left rear of the Astro. The Astro sustained $8000 in damages. One of the tractor trailer’s fuel tanks was punctured and leaking onto the highway. Hall was transported to Twin Cities Hospital by ambulance with minor injuries. Waters was airlifted to Bay Medical Center in critical condition. The accident was investigated by Trooper C.D. Fordham.CRASHClarksville man injured in accident Picket on the square to support city managerOver 40 people turned out at Magnolia Square on a cold and rainy afternoon Friday to show their support for James Woods who was recently fired as Blountstown city manager.

Turner Publisher/Editor/Advertising Sharon Turner Bookkeeper/Circulation Kelli Peacock....News Editor Somehow, largely through the Grace of God, devoted loyalty, and the vast pride on the part of many people, The County Record has never missed an issue.The County Record The Voice of Calhoun County Since 1907 C R I M E R E P O R TFour arrested in two scrap metal burglary casesFour people were arrested in connection with a burglary at a local business, as well as one at a residence. Michael Edward Swain has been charged with grand theft and dealing in stolen property. Brina Nicole Davis, 19, faces the same charges, as well as burglary of a dwelling and resisting arrest without violence. Christopher Leach, 19, and James Michael Hathaway, 20, are charged with burglary, grand theft, and dealing in stolen property. According to the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, the first case began back in January when Mike Blackburn’s Welding Shop on Angle Street reported some equipment had been taken. Cpl. Eddie Dalton responded, along with Sgt. Jared Nichols. Approximately 150 feet of welding lead and two welding clamps were missing. Inv. Mark Mallory and Inv. Michael Bryant began working the investigation. The trail led to a man who had purchased the welding leads from two boys who were later identified as Swain and Leach. A truck witnessed in the case was tracked to Leach’s girlfriend, identified as Brina Davis. A second case was opened around the same time after a home on Wrennie Moody Road was burglarized. Appliances removed included an air conditioning unit, refrigerator, stove, washer, and dryer, along with two scuba tanks. Capt. Bryant and Lt. Adam Terry made contact with Leach who admitted to driving Davis’ father’s truck that was spotted by witnesses. He also confirmed that he had sold scrap metal, but denied any involvement in a burglary. He said he sold an oven, along with an air conditioning unit his parents gave him. However, a phone call to his parents revealed a different story they said they had not given him any air conditioning unit. The scrap metal buyer was found and the unit matched the description of the one taken in the home burglary. The refrigerator and scuba tanks were also found. Once booked into the jail, Leach requested to speak with Capt. Bryant and Lt. Terry. He said he had gone to the residence with Davis and Hathaway on Jan. 21, making two different trips to remove the appliances. They sold the refrigerator, stove, washer and driver for $20.Woman picked up for grand theft is found with methAwoman wanted on an outstanding warrant in Leon County is now facing drug charges in Calhoun County. Delia Coxwell was arrested last Tuesday night for possession of meth and drug paraphernalia. According to the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, Sgt. Jared Nichols spotted Coxwell walking along West Central Avenue and learned she was wanted in Leon County for grand theft. While speaking with her, he asked if she had anything illegal and she removed a plastic container from her sweater pocket, along with a straw. The container held an estimated one gram of meth, resulting in the new charges.Man harboring wanted suspect is also chargedAuthorities looking for a man wanted on an outstanding warranted were met with resistance Friday, leading to another man’s arrest. Brent Majeske was charged with resisting an officer without violence due to obstructing deputies by providing false information about a wanted subject. According to the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, Sgt. Jared Nichols, Dep. Scotty Norris, and Dep. Bobby Sims went to the Majeske home on County Line Road to serve a warrant on Justin Pare. Majeske spoke with the deputies when he met them on the road. He denied Pare was living at his home and said he hadn’t seen him since Jan. 31. He said he didn’t want deputies going to his house, but they went anyway. Pare and a woman answered the door. Pare was taken into custody on a warrant for domestic battery and child abuse after allegedly punching the mother of his child when she attempted to leave him. She was holding their child at the time. Majeske was also taken into custody. COXWELLDAVISHATHAWAYLEACHMAJESKEPARESWAIN Lightning Safety Tipsfrom the National Weather ServiceSafe Shelters & Indoor Safety Key Indoor Lightning Tips Stay OFF corded phones. You can use cellular or cordless phones Don't touch electrical equipment or cords. Unplug electronic equipment before the storm arrives. Avoid plumbing. Do not wash your hands, take a shower or wash dishes. Stay away from windows and doors, and stay off porches. Do not lie on concrete floors and do not lean against concrete walls. What is a Safe Shelter? A safe shelter is a building with electricity and/or plumbing or a hard topped vehicle with windows closed. Picnic shelters, dugouts, small buildings without plumbing or electricity are NOT safe. Stay Safe While Inside Stay off corded phones. You can use cell phones or cordless phones if they are not in a charger. Don't use computers or equipment directly connected to electricity, such as your stove. Stay out of the shower and away from other plumbing as well. You should also stay away from windows and doors. Small cracks in the frames can let lightning in. Remember Your Pets Dog houses are not safe shelters. Dogs that are chained to trees or chained to wire runners can easily fall victim to a lightning strike. Bring pets inside. Protect Your Personal Property In addition to direct strikes, lightning generates electrical surges that can damage electronic equipment some distance from the actual strike. Typical surge protectors will NOT protect equipment from a lightning strike. If you plan to be away from your home when thunderstorms are possible, unplug unneeded equipment. Do NOT unplug equipment during a thunderstorm as there is a risk you could be struck. How Lightning Enters a House or Building There are three main ways lightning enters homes and buildings: A direct strike Through wires or pipes that extend outside the structure Through the ground. Regardless of the method of entrance, once in a structure, the lightning can travel through the electrical, phone, plumbing, and radio/television reception systems. Lightning can also travel through any metal wires or bars in concrete walls or flooring. Lightning damages family's home during storm last weekMarilyn Vincent says she was watching a late movie last Tuesday night around 11:30 when a loud noise shook her entire house on Lee Farm Road. Within seconds, the entire Vincent family was awake and running for safety as lightning went through one end of their house and out the other. Marilyn, her husband, Terry, and their children, Taylor and Matt, were busy sweeping up soot from their damaged fireplace the next day. It took hours for them to regain power and water as utility crews were busy repairing damages in the Grand Ridge area. The family was feeling fortunate that their home miraculously did not catch fire.

Aconfidential informant was used on several occasions to make purchases of crack cocaine in an area known as “The Cut” around Canal Lane and nearby streets. The transactions were captured on video and audio. Drug arrests BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News Editor Blountstown High School has improved one letter grade from a “D” to a “C” after appealing to the Florida Department of Education. According to a letter sent to Superintendent Tommy McClellan, the Department of Education’s appeals committee and Commissioner Eric J. Smith agreed that BHS was graded unfairly since they were scored as a combination school serving grades 6-12, rather than a high school of grades 9-12. Students in the TMHprogram at BHS were factored in the original decision, however, it was noted that less than 10 students are in middle school grades. The letter confirmed that total grade points for the school have increased from the current 988 to 1008 and the school’s grade for 2010 has been changed from “D” to “C.”BHS moves from a "D" to "C" grade S S E E X X U U A A L L O O F F F F E E N N D D E E R R A A L L E E R R T TGary Charles Carroll, a registered sex offender, resides at 18767 NW Hayes Subdivision Road in Blountstown.

JOHNSON ‘Take Stock’ scholarship winners namedOn Thursday, February 4, Calhoun County Take Stock in Children Council Members interviewed ten local ninth graders who applied for a Take Stock in Children Scholarship. All students interviewed by Council Members did an excellent job in presenting themselves in a professional manner and in being prepared for the interview. Council Members were pleased to award three scholarships this year. Scholarships were awarded to David Benditt from Blountstown High School, Alvin (P .J.) Iler, III from Altha School and Ronnie Tucker from Altha School. David is the son of Thomas and Lisa Benditt of Blountstown. P .J. is the son of Alvin Iller, II and Ida McClellan of Blountstown. Ronnie is the son of James and Jennifer Tucker of Altha. When each of these 9th grade students graduate from high school, their Take Stock in Children Scholarship will be activated. In the meantime, as a scholarship recipient, each student will be provided mentor and advocate support in order to be successful through their high school years. That support will provide motivation, tutoring, continuous monitoring, intervention services, and college and career counseling. In accepting these scholarships, the students will sign performance contracts agreeing to maintain good grades, exhibit positive behavior, demonstrate a willingness to work with their mentor, and remain drug and crime free. If the students adhere to their contracts, they retain their four year college scholarships. The four-year scholarships that were awarded to David, P.J., and Ronnie were made possible through monetary donations from people and businesses in our community. The number of scholarships awarded each year depends entirely upon donations received. Donations made to the program stay in our county and go to our students. For information on how you can help support Take Stock in Children with donations or mentoring services, contact Barbara Hathaway at 674-5927, Ext. 21. Altha winners are shown at left.

This was our second reward event to encourage positive behavior by our students. The 7th and 8th grade students could "pay to play" against the staff, while the rest of the student body paid an admission fee of 2 paws to watch the game. We had special guests, Kyle Peddie and Roger Reddick, who played for the faculty team. The faculty team dominated the court in each of the quarters they played, with some fancy and comical moves. The student teams played exceptionally well against the "older" competition. With no injuries, but lots of fun, the PBS event was a huge success.

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News EditorThe Blountstown High School basketball team defeated the Liberty County Bulldogs last Thursday night, 74-49, before a packed home crowd. Will Rogers led the Tigers with 16 points. Marquel Thomas followed with 13 points. Nick Martin added 11. Larry Jackson brought in 10 points. “There was great energy and a good crowd,” says Coach Davis. “It was a solid game.” Coach Davis says he held out his starters last Tuesday against East Gadsden due to several injuries sustained the previous week. “I was trying to rest these players before the district tournament,” he remarks. Against Liberty County, he brought them back for the first two quarters, then gave the younger players a chance to show their stuff in the second half. The district tournament began Tuesday in Bonifay with the Tigers going up against Vernon. The winner will face Cottondale at 6 p.m. Friday.

All hunters will be chosen by random drawing. All hunts are Saturday-Sunday and will be guided. To be eligible for these hunts, applicants must be at least 12 years old by the first day of the hunt and under 16 years of age on the last day of the hunt for which they apply. Also, all youths must have passed a state-certified hunter safety course. Each permit allows only one youth to hunt. An adult supervisor who is 18 or older must accompany the youth. The accompanying adult cannot hunt. No license or permit is required of the youth or supervising adult, unless the adult plans to help “call-in” a turkey during either of the youth spring turkey hunts. Both the youth and the supervising adult must attend an orientation the Friday evening before the scheduled hunt, and they must primitive-camp on the property from Friday evening through noon Sunday. Youth quail hunt dates are Feb. 19-20 and Feb. 26-27, and applications may be submitted for either of these two hunts through Feb. 11. Youth spring turkey hunts are April 2-3 and April 9-10; those applications may be submitted from 10 a.m. on Feb. 7 through Feb. 25. Applications for both the youth quail and youth spring turkey hunts are available at MyFWC.com/YHPF. However, hunters may apply for only one of the two quail hunts, and only one of the two spring turkey hunts. Completed applications and a copy of the youth’s hunter safety card may be faxed to 850-413-7989 or mailed to: Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, ATTN: Hunter Safety/Babcock, 620 South Meridian Street, Tallahassee, FL 323991600. The youth quail hunt drawing will be on Feb. 14, and the youth spring turkey drawing will be on March 1. Investigators with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) are seeing more instances of people buying or selling wild game meat online these days, so they have been cracking down on cyber-violators. “It is illegal to sell or purchase game meat online,” said Lt. George Wilson, head of the FWC’s Internet Crimes Unit. People often do so through online advertisements, unknowingly breaking the law. “We are running into this quite frequently in our Internet Crimes Unit,” Wilson said. “People are posting ads, asking to buy meat, from deer and ducks, for example.” A popular new pet-diet may be escalating the problem. The diet, referred to as the “prey model,” calls for hormone-free, natural meat for dogs. This leads pet owners to look for wild game meat, often on the Internet. “Not only is this a violation, it is also a safety concern for people who purchase wild game meat online for themselves or their pets,” Wilson said. “People who purchase the meat don’t know the sanitary conditions in which it was processed.” To report wildlife law violations, visit MyFWC.com/Law/Alert or call 888-404-FWCC (3922).

LEGAL NOTICESDeadline Monday Noon Please Email Your Ads to news@thecountyrecord.netno faxes please Homeowners can save if ISO ratings loweredMagnolia VFD chief and firefighter attend training classes at conventionMagnolia Fire Department Chief, Kevin Parrish and Firefighter Liz Parrish attended multiple educational training classes during the Fire Rescue East Convention in Daytona Beach. These classes included Structural Response to Aircraft Incidents, Emergency Management of Incidents, Extrication Techniques on Hybrid Vehicles, and ISO Fire Suppression Updates classes. Chief Parrish says, “It is through increased training that the local fire departments will see an improved and safer response.” Due to increased improvements at the Calhoun County Airport, Chief Parrish attended these trainings to bring back the important information that will be needed in the event of an incident at the airport. In between classes he also took the time to visit with representatives from Insurance Services Office also known as ISO. “The class that was offered from ISO was very beneficial to our community as it outlined the changes currently being done that affect the insurance ratings on our homes locally. If the fire departments can lower their ISO ratings that equates to dollars being saved on homeowners insurance rates in that fire district,” Chief Parrish remarks. Currently Magnolia VFD holds a split class rating of 7/9, but if all goes well this year they will have their water tanker shuttle certified by ISO and that rating will drop. Completion of training, testing, and maintenance are all factors in getting a good ISO rating, but there is more than the fire department that is involved. The water supply and communications are also huge factors to consider since they account for 50% of the ISO rating. ISO ratings ultimately depend on funding. In order to have the lowest available ISO rating and save homeowners on their insurance rates, monies must be spent to assist departments in acquiring the necessary equipment, but also the proper testing of the equipment. In order to meet the stringent requirements of OSHA, and the Florida State Fire Marshalls Office, it requires testing of air packs, pumps, ladders, hose, apparatus maintenance, air pack bottle recertification and firefighter certifications and training. Without these standards being met, it is almost impossible to receive a low ISO rating. “The information that was learned for me to take back to not only Magnolia Fire Department, but all Calhoun County fire departments, is crucial to the improvement of small volunteer departments,” says Chief Parrish. If you have any questions concerning ISO ratings or volunteering, contact Chief Parrish at 850899-6114.Magnolia Chief Kevin Parris is pictured above (left) speaking with an ISO representative who audits fire departments.
