for VFD

gas theft
News Editor
Three young men have
been charged with stealing
gas from a local volunteer
fire department.
John Carr, 18, and a juve-
nile were each charged with
theft under $300 and tres-
passing. Skylar Durden, 18,
was charged with principle
in the first degree to petit
According to the Calhoun
County Sheriffs Office, Inv.
Michael Bryant was contact-
ed in late February by Chief
Rolf Myrhammer of the
Mossy Pond Volunteer Fire
Department who reported
several gasoline thefts over
the past few months.
Myrhammer told authorities
the fire station on NW Porter
Grade Road had been hit
numerous times and, in an
effort to curtail the problem,
he had moved a fuel tank
from the station to his resi-
Back in January, the VFD
purchased 200 gallons of
fuel from Eubanks Oil
Company and had used less
than 30 gallons when
Myrhammer did a check and
realized an estimated 100
gallons were missing from
the tank.
Myrhammer also advised
he had been out of town
briefly and returned home to
find a strange message on
his answering machine. An
individual reportedly called
his residence and left what
appeared to be a tape
recorded conversation
between two males who were
conspiring to steal gasoline
from Myrhammer's home.
Because he didn't have caller
ID, authorities were unable
to determine the origin of the
call. However, one of the
voices sounded like that of a
juvenile serving as a junior
firefighter on the Mossy
Pond VFD. The teen was
contacted, presented with
the taped evidence, and
reportedly admitted to steal-
ing the gas. He advised the
other voice on the tape
belonged to Durden.
The juvenile reportedly
stated he, Durden and Carr,
went to Myrhammer's resi-
dence and removed the fuel.
He further admitted he had
taken gas on several occa-
Durden reportedly served
as a "lookout" for the teen
and Carr while they commit-
ted the theft.

The County Record, MARCH 29, 2006, Page 2


Editor's Note:
In last week's edition of
The County Record, there
was an error in the letter to
the editor from Mossy Pond
Fire Chief Rolf Myrhammar. It
should have stated one of the
alleged gasoline thieves was
a juvenile who served as a
junior firefighter. The way it
was worded, it appeared the
suspect was an adult member
of the department and that
was not the case. Our apolo-
gies for any confusion.

Dear Editor:
March is national "Mental
Retardation Awareness
Month." Unaware to most,
there are approximately 170
million people with intellec-
tual disabilities, worldwide,
and more than 7 million in
the United States, many in
our own communities.
Through Spfecial
Olympics, we serve over one
million athletes with intellec-
tual disabilities in more than
160 countries providing year-

joining forces with Publix
Super Markets to raise over
$1.65 million dollars for
Special Olympics Florida in
the month of January. This
support helps make Special
Olympics a reality for more
people than ever before.
While everyone can benefit
from sports, for our athletes
there are also clinical bene-
fits like health and fitness
and self-esteem and greater
social adjustment. But at the
end of the day, Special
Olympics is an environment
where people with intellectu-
al disabilities can be success-
ful and where parents can be
proud of their children.
That's no small feat given the
amount of prejudice and dis-
crimination that most of our
athletes face on a day-to-day
By participating in Special
Olympics, people with intel-
lectual disabilities :have
gained the self-confidence
and social,skills to succeed

Sing a district opponent. The
SWildcats (4-6; 2-1) knew that
and took down the Sneads
SPirates (4-6; 1-1) last Friday
night 10-7.
Altha started off like gang-
busters in the first two
innings. In the first inning
leadoff batter Keith
Kirkpatrick got things rolling
with a single. Matt Maxwell
moved Kirkpatrick to second
on a sacrifice bunt. An error
by the Pirates' third baseman
scored Kirkpatrick and put
Tad Scott on second base.
Noah Byler would rip a single
to left field to bring home
Scott and give the Wildcats a
2-0 lead.
With a great defense back-
ing him up, Wildcats hurler
Keith Kirkpatrick (2-2) faced
the minimum of Sneads' bat-
ters through 5 innings. In
the bottom of the first the
second Pirates' batter
reached first on an error.
However, the Wildcats had an
old-fashion twin-killing in
store for him they turned a
double play on him and the
third Sneads' batter to end
the inning.
The Wildcats' scoring bar-
rage continued in the second
inning as 6 base runners
would touch home plate.
Cale Chafin continued the hit
parade when he reached on
the third baseman's error.
The next batter, Matt Alford,
also reached on a third base-
man's error moving Chafin to
second base. Gary Chew
reached on a fielder's choice
and a throwing error by the'
Sneads' pitcher allowed
Chafin to take third base.
Tony Golden laced a single to
right field scoring Chafin.
With one out, Kirkpatrick
scorched a double to the
power alley in right to bring
home Alford and Chew.

Chamber of Commerce day,
the Wildcats (4-8) traveled to
take on the Maclay

header. However, by the end
of these two five inning
games, it was a dismal day
for the Wildcats as they had
let both games slip away, 1-0
and 8-7, respectively.
In the first four innings it
was a pitchers duel as the
Wildcats had only 3 hits and
Altha's pitcher, Tad Scott (0-

The Wildcats had runners
at second and third base in

Kurt Busch began his career in driving in the
Craftsman Truck Series. He started a controversy
when Jack Roush invited him to race in the
Winston Cup Series without any experience in
the "junior" Busch Grand National Series. Busch
began racing on the Winston Cup circuit in 2000,
at the age of 21. He finished 48th in the standings
that year. Busch ran for rookie of the year honors
in 2001, driving 35 of 36 races with no wins,
although Kurt collected 3 top 5's and 6 top 10's
that year. He also got a pole qualifying position
that year, at Darlington Raceway. In 2004, Busch
won the Nextel Cup by 8 points over Jimmie
Johnson and 16 points over Jeff Gordon. In 2005,
Kurt's brother Kyle Busch joined him on the
Nextel Cup docket: Busch's 2005 season was cut
short by two races when he was suspended by
his team owner after being pulled 'over for suspi-
cion of drunken driving aid cited for reckless dri-
ving. Busch left Roush Racing and'joined Penske
Racing South in 2006.

Ricky Rudd, who retired from NASCAR racing last
November after 31 years and a record 788 consec-
utive starts in stock car racing's premier series, was
honored F.d-. in .Virginian of the Year by the
,.',r,,. Pie: ;0ociation. Rudd, 49, a
Chesapeake native, received the award during The
Associated, Press dinner at the VPA/AP Winter
Conference, held this year at the Hotel Roarioke.
During his career, which ended with a three-year
stint driving for Virginia-based Wood Brothers
Racing, Rudd won 23 races, five in Virginia.

on drug and battery charges.
According to the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office, Dep. Eddie Dalton
was patrolling on. Hwy. 274 when he
came upon an eastbound vehicle
driving extremely slow at approxi-

initiated a traffic stop.
Both the driver of the vehicle,
along with the passenger, later iden-
tified as James Bernard Adkins, exit-
ed the vehicle. Adkins reportedly
appeared to be fumbling, with some-
thing in his left pocket. Dep. Dalton
ordered him to remove his hand from
his pocket and questioned him about'
having illegal weapons or drugs.
Adkins pulled a knife from his right
pocket and turned it over to the

Legislation proposed to

combat meth labs in FL

State Fire Marshal Tom
Gallagher joined legislative
leaders, law enforcement and
firefighters this week. in call-
ing for the passage of legisla-
tion aimed at combating
methamphetamine or "meth"
labs in Florida and enhanc-
ing protections of children,'
law enforcement and other
emergency,, responders
exposed to meth manufactur-
Senate Bill 2356 and
House Bill 1325 would:
Authorize the
Department of Children and
Families to begin dependency
proceedings for the immedi-
ate removal of children found
at 'meth labs.
Allow the courts to hold
meth producers without t bail

while awaiting trial. This
provision was included at the
request of law enforcement
because meth producers,
once released on bail, imme-
diately begin producing the
drug again.

Extend criminal penal-
ties to include firefighters
and other emergency
response personnel injured
or killed while responding to
meth. labs (third-degree
felony if injured; second-
degree felony if killed or
severely injured).
Prevent first responders
from having life or health
insurance canceled because
they have tested positive for
meth as a result of perform-
ing their jobs.

trying to put his.hand there. After
more questioning, Adkins pulled a
blue pill holder from his left pocket
and handed it to Dep. Dalton.
However, the pocket still appeared to
have a bulge and Dep. Dalton con-
tinued questioning Adkins who
denied having anything else, then
returned his hand to the pocket. Dep.
Dalton grabbed Adkins' hand and
Acdkins allegedly snatched it away.
Adkins then pulled an Altoids can
from his pocket and turned it over to
the deputy. A marijuana bud and
rolling papers were found inside.
Adkins then snatched the Altoids can
from Dep. Dalton and put it back in
his pocket.
After refusing to cooperate,
Adkins was placed under arrest and

Dep. Dalton and fled. A short pursuit
ensued and Adkins refused to stop.
Dep. Dalton deployed his M26 Taser,
striking Adkins in the back area,
Adkins fell to the ground and was
taken-into custody. The Altoids can,
along with a plastic bag of marijuana,
were retrieved from his pocket.
Adkins was charged with resist-
ing arrest with violence, battery on a
law enforcement officer, and posses-
sion of less than 20 grams of mari-
juana, along with drug parapherna-
lia. He was booked into the Calhoun
County Jail and released the follow-
ing day after posting a $3000 bond.

The Florida Department of
Health Childhood Lead

Program joins the U.S.
Consumer Product Safety
Commission (CPSC) in alert-
ing the people of Florida
about a recall of three items
of children's costume jewelry.
The jewelry was found to
have high lead content and
has been linked to the death
of a four-year-old Minnesota
"It is important that this
message is shared with all
Floridians in order to protect
other children," said Julie
Kurlfink. Program
Coordinator for the
Childhood Lead Poisoning
Prevention Program. "Lead
adversely affects children's
cognitive and behavioral
development and can have
life long effects. Parents and
caregivers should under-
stand that small, inexpensive
jewelry may contain high lead
content and should be care-
ful to ensure children do not
put such metal objects in
their mouths."
The U.S. Consumer
Product Safety Commission
(CPSC) announced a volun-
tary recall to collect about
30'0.000 Reebok Heart
Shaped charm bracelets. The
bracelets were provided as a
free gift with the purchase of
various styles of children's
footwear sold nationwide
from 'May 2004 through
March 2006. Consumers
should Immediately take the
charm bracelets away from
children and dispose of the

entire bracelet. Photos of the
.product can be found on the
CPSC Web site:

Prescribed burns don't

harm turkey population


During the past few
weeks, U.S. Forest Service
employees, state wildlife
agency workers and private
landowners have lit their oil-
filled drip torches and com-
menced prescribed burning
practices in the forests and
fields of the Southeast.
Prescribed burning is
most effective during late
March and early April when
shrubs and saplings start to
bloom. These months are
also prime for spring turkey
hunting and when turkeys
are starting to nest.
A common fear among
turkey hunters is that pre-
scribed burns are detrimen-
tal to wild turkey populations
because they destroy many
wild turkey nests.

However, wildlife biologists
know that the improved nest-
ing and brood habitat provid-
ed by prescribed burning is
far more important than the
loss of a few nests. Research
in northcentral Louisiana
shows that most hens nest
somewhere less brushy than
areas selected for burning
Since 2002. state and local
National Wild Turkey
Federation chapters have
spent more than 8228.000 in
23 states to help fund pre-
scribed fire projects. Through
NWTF's Hunting Heritage
Super Fund. volunteers
donate money to further the
work that government agen-
cies do on the ground.

about prescribed burning.

Wear white Friday for

advance care planning

Among those honored at the Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce banquet Thursday night
were Edwin and Lynn Strawn of The Diamond Corner. The Strawns are shown above receiving
the Grow & Glow Award from Mary Alice Minnick of Keep Calhoun County Beautiful. They
received the honor for the outstanding remodeling job at their business that has become an
example of excellent design in downtown Blountstown.

Covenant Hospice and the
National Hospice and
Palliative Care Organization
(NHPCO) are asking the com-
munity to help raise aware-
ness about the importance of
advance care planning dur-
ing the month of March by
wearing white clothing.
Wearing white is particularly
important on March 31, the
anniversary of Terri Schiavo's
death, when the two organi-
zations want to focus nation-
al attention on the impor-
tance of end-of-life discus-
sions and advance care plan-
The It's About How You
LIVE campaign encourages
people to:
Learn about options for
end-of-life care
Implement plans. to
ensure your wishes are hon-

a Voice decisions to fami-
ly, friends and health care
Engage others in con-
versation about the impor-
tance of advance care plan-
Covenant Hospice is offer-
ing free copies of Five Wishes,
a living will that talks about
your personal, emotional and
spiritual needs as well as
your medical wishes. It lets
you choose the person you
want to make health care
decisions for you if you are
not able to make them for
yourself. Five Wishes lets
you say exactly how you wish
to be treated if you get seri-
ously ill or 'become incapaci-
There are several different
versions of living wills avail-

able. However, no matter
which living will individuals
choose to complete,
Covenant Hospice empowers
individuals and families to
make a difference in their
lives, even at the end-of-life.
Advance Care Planning (ACP)
is a process to help extend
your rights through docu-
mentation that guides your
medical care should you
become unable to communi-
cate your wishes.
ACP consists of two pri-
mary concepts: devising a liv-
ing will and designating a
health care surrogate. Less
than 25% of Americans over
the age of 18 enact these
rights in writing. For more
information on ACP or to get
your free copy of Five Wishes,
please call Covenant Hospice
