Two employees of the
Apalachicola Forest. Youth
Camp where juvenile offenders
are held were arrested Sunday
for bringing drug-related items
on the facility's premises.
Michael Steven Matautia
and Zachary Adam Hatcher
were each charged with intro-
duction of contraband into a
detention facility.
S.According to the Liberty
County SherifftT's Office, a
deputy and K-9 cop were
asked by the camp's officials to
conduct, random free air sniffs
in the facility and parking lot.
The dog showed a positive
response at Matautia's truck.
A search'turned up a plastic
bag with marijuana and a pipe
with residue and the odor of
burnt marijuana. Hatcher, who
rode to work with Matautia,
claimed ownership of the mar-
ijuana. Matautia said the pipe
was his and had been used to
smoke pot in the past.

BY RON GILLIARD
ADMINISTRATOR
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital

Let me give you some
updates on things going on at
your local hospital.
First,


An nual1
Health
Fair/FaIll
Festival this
Saturday at
the hospital
from 8 AM
- 2 PM.
We hope to
have a great RON GILLIARD
turnout.
Bring your kids and grandkids.
There will be lots of free fun
things for them to do and you
can get lots of valuable medical
tests for free or a small fee.
There'll be inflatable rides
for the kids, free food, many
informational booths and just a
fua arid "healthy" time for all.
We'll conduct the tests inside
ev-en if the weather does not
cooperate. But we hope we
have a beautiful day and a great
"turnout. We also will be glad to
provide a tour of the hospital if
anyone wishes to do so. If
you've not seen it in awhile, you
might not recognize it!
We are so thankful, especial-
ly as we enter the Thanksgiving
and holiday season for the sev-
eral generous donations that
have been made to'the hospital
recently. As a not-for-profit
organization, all such gifts are
fully tax deductible to the
donor. And we're putting all of
them to good use to further
upgrade the hospital. Our next
big project will be to completely
*renovate our inpatient nursing
station.
Several new pieces of equip-
ment will be arriving soon as
I've discussed before. Let me
update on you that also. We will
have a new machine for taking
x-ray films. Also, we will be get-
ting ,a .new.. portable, radiology
unit as~;wbl asa-state-of-thE art
ultrasound machine. It will
even be able to perform
echocardiograms and we are


considering establishing a clinic
to conduct these type tests.
We'll be getting new beds
also. And some will be the type
that can weigh the patient while
he or she is in it! We'll soon
install all new TVs in the inpa-
tient rooms to go along with a
new wide. screen TV in the
main lobby.
Our pharmacy services will
be greatly upgraded with an
automatic dispensing. unit to
,improve the safety and efficien-
cy of this critical function for our
inpatients. We recently
installed a similar one in the
Emergency Room.
Our new chapel, adopted by
the Chamber Board, will soon
be ready. They've done a great
'job and it is a nice, serene place
for all to worship or just medi-
tate. We give a big thanks to
them!
We'll soon start on a new
registration area in the main
lobby. We've gotten really busy
and it can sometimes get pretty
crowded. This should help with
our patient flow.
And that flow seems to be
getting busier and busier!
September was the busiest
month since the Association got
the hospital back almost three
years ago. We averaged double
the number of inpatients we did
last year. 'And the outpatient
workload is increasing also. We
had over 700 patients seen in
the Emergency Room and-per-
formed'over 200 Cat Scans. So
things are really staying busy!
I often say, I don't want any-
one to be sick, but when they
are, we hope they will use us for
the services we provide. More
and more of you are doing so.
I'm receiving lots of compli-
ments on the hospital and more
importantly, the care we're pro-
viding. And most of those com-
pliments mention the courteous
and compassionate manner and
high quality of that care. We've
worked hard on this and it's
paying offi
We have a great staff and
s'or .'j.%.uper doctors. All .are
highly.rprofessional, .caring'indi-
vidual, working together es';A
super team! I'm very proud of
all of them and thankful for the


work they are doing. They are
all top notch!
And I honestly feel this is the
main reason more of you are
using us for your health care
needs. Updated rooms and new
equipment are nice, but the real
key is the care being provided


by these individuals.
So, we are on the move and
working hard to better serve
you. Hope to see you Saturday!
Give me a call if you' have
any questions, on the above or
on anything about the hospital
at 674-5411, ext 206.

It was back to the 50s
last week when
Blountstown Main Street
opened a four-night run of
'Back to Jack's', the third

and cheese reception, coor-
dinated by Barbara Wilson,
on the front porch of the
historic Frink Gym. A silent
auction, chaired by Lisa
Creamer, was held during
the reception to raise funds
for Main Street projects.
After the reception, the
doors opened to reveal a
dining room decked out in
elegant fall decor by Angie
Hill. Guests were treated to
a delicious meal of prime
rib prepared by Tim
Faircloth, along with man-
darin orange and pear
*salad, sweet potato souffle-
and green beans with

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR:


To the Editor:
I am in writing in response to
the letter to the editor last week
in regards to Amendment 2.
Unfortunately, by the time that
this is printed, it will be too late
for voters to hear yet another
point of view before casting
their ballot; however, I pray
that people voted their convic-
tions and this precious amend-
ment has passed.
In last week's article, it was
stated that churches who par-
ticipated in "Stand for
Marriage Sunday" have in
some way drifted away from
their purpose. It is true that
churches come together to wor-
ship the Lord; however, it is
also very true that pastors are
commissioned and ordained of
the Lord to preach the Word
from the pulpit. It was stated
that Amendment 2 is not in the
Bible and I beg to differ with
whoever believes this as this'
amendment is very much scrip-
tural.
Although you may believe
that Christians are "entitled to
their opinion," but it should be
kept out of the church, our
opinion of this is based on the
very words written in scripture.
If you would -have .attended a
church on October 19th or at
least the church I attend, you
would have learned that these
pastors did not just stand in the
pulpit and tell you to vote for
Amendment 2. In all actuality,
these pastors provided scripture
after scripture to further edu-
cate their congregations on
what scripture has to say in
regards to this vital 'amend-
ment.
The problem with society
today is that the church has
stayed out of too many amend-
ments and laws that have come
to pass. I am extremely proud
of the outpouring that we have
seen in our local communities to
support this amendment and
although you believe that mar-
riage is no longer sacred does
not -mean that everyone has
your same opinion. Marriage
should. be between one man
and one woman. You will not
find anything in the Bible to
dispute that fact. I understand
that riot everyone has the same
religious views that I have and
that -is-a choice that they- are
responsible" for; however, I do
see this as a religious issue and
it is one that the church should
not take lightly.
Florida has statutes stating
that Florida does not recognize
same sex marriages, but as you
can see from other states that a
judge can change that in the
matter of a ruling. With the
passing of this amendment, no
court in the state of.Florida. will
be able to overturn this amend-
ment; it will be placed in our
state. constitution. This is an
issue that Floridians have the.
right to decide how we believe
marriage should be defined in
bur state and, based on Biblical
facts, this amendment is one
that should be passed!

Kristi Williams
Clarksville

Dear Editor:
As the pastor of a local
church, I am writing this
response to the letter printed
last week in regards to
Amendment 2. As you know, by
this time the election has
already decided if Amendment
2 has now become part of our
state constitution; however, I
.felt that the general public
deserve a response to last
week's letter.
Amendment 2 is a constitu-
tional amendment that will pro-
tect and define marriage in our
state. Although we have laws in
Florida (Florida Defense of
Marriage Act that passed in
1997), we need these laws in


our constitution. Liberal judges
could overturn a law that is in
effect; however, no court in the
state of Florida can legalize
homosexual marriage if it is in
our state constitution. This
amendment is not designed to
take away visiting rights in hos-
pitals or keep unmarried cou-
ples from owning property
(since there are no laws con-
cerning ownership and mar-
riage). This is an attempt to
keep-marriage in the state of
Florida between one man and
one woman.
As a pastor, my church did
participate in "Stand for
Marriage Sunday" and I did
preach from the BIBLE what
scripture has to say about the
sanctity of marriage. It is unfor-
tunate that many people in our
communities no longer view
marriage as a sacred covenant;
however, the scriptures are
clear in that regard. The first
miracle that Jesus performed
occurred at a wedding! As a
pastor, I did not stand in the
pulpit and force my point of
view on'the members of my
congregation. I did, however,
read scriptures and tell them
what God has to say about mar-
riage and about this amend-
ment.
The article last week said
that this amendment is
nowhere in the Bible; however,
it is clear in the following scrip-
ture that the Lord intended for
marriage to remain between
one man and one woman:
Genesis 2:24- "Therefore a man
shall leave his father and moth-
er and be joined to his wife, and
.they shall become one flesh,"
This is not an issue of hate
against homosexuals by the
church, this is a stance that all
Christians should take. We, as
Christians and followers of
Christ, do not hate those who
choose this lifestyle, we do,
however, disagree with the
lifestyle they live. I personally
do not want my children taught
about homosexuality in school
(which is what is happening to
kindergarten parents in
Massachusetts) or taken on a
field trip to witness their lesbian
teachers'. wedding (as in
California). There comes a time
when everyone should stand up
and use their God given right to
"vote (which is 'also in scripture)
and voicq their opinion. The
church is taking a stand on this
amendment and we will not
apologize for it.

Phillip Williams,
Clarksville

Dear Editor,
Almost two weeks ago, I
attended the Kinard Volunteer
Fire Department's "Halloween
Carnival." I want to thank
them for allowing the Calhoun
County Humane Society to set
up a booth for the event. It was
the first time that I've been,
-and now I understand why it is
such a success every year. Just
as they do when they respond
to fires, they could not have
worked harder for the commu-
nity in planning and putting on
a wonderful event.
Oh, the cakes! I wish I had
been one of the lucky ones to
take one home. Unfortunately,
I could not leave our booth to
do the cake -walk, or bid on
them. If I had been able to bid,
I might not have been able to
compete with those who
showed their support for the
K.V.F.D. with generous bfds,
(no doubt boosted by good spir-
ited competition, with a healthy
serving of ego thrown in.)
"It takes a village to raise a
child," so I'd like to share
another experience from the
Carnival. It was late when I
packed up to leave, and almost

the community for all the vol-

help which it has provided on
our many projects.
The Club House/Log Cabin
holds so many memories for our

urgent to continue the work

how you live.


Far too many families who have

been served by Covenant Hospice

reflect back upon the experience

and question why they did not

seek out hospice care sooner.


Many were simply unaware of

hospice as a possible option, but

the focus on pain and symptom

control in addition to the emotional,

social and spiritual support enable

patients and families to make

CALHOUN-LIBERTY


HOSPITAL


My mother spent her last days at Calhoun-Liberty Hospital.
I'll always be grateful for the courteous and compassionate
care the staff provided to her. They treated her like she was a
member of their own family and I can't praise them enough.
The quality of the care was outstanding. We have an
excellent hospital right here locally and I don't know why
anyone would travel out of town for the services they offer.
They've made an amazing turnaround and are top notch in
my book. I strongly encourage all our local citizens to
consider using them. You'll be glad you did.

What did matter to the Altha

bounced the Bozeman Lady

winning ,the quarter regional
match-25-11, 25-12 and 28-

In Game 1 Emily Brooks
gave Altha a 5-2 lead. Christy
Simmons extended it to 10-5
and Cortney Harris put the
game out of reach at 15-9 with
her 4 straight service points.
The Lady Wildcats (7-14; 2-

lead in Game 2 thanks to Emily
Brooks 6 straight service points
and the game was virtually over
when Rebekah Wiltse gave
Altha a 16-6 lead.
Christy ,Simmons gave the
Lady Wildcats a 11-6 lead with
her 3 straight service points in
Game 3. Late in the game
Bozeman scratched out a 22-21
lead. But it was short lived as

responded by tying the game
two more times but Cessna
Folsom sealed the deal by serv-
ing the match-winning point.
Altha's scoring leader was
Rebekah Wiltse with 12 service
points, a service ace, and 2 digs.,
Emily Brooks posted 11 service
points, a service ace, and 7
assists. Christy Simmons
recorded 10 service points, 3
service aces, 4 kills and a dig.
Both lCessna Folsom and

However, Sneads next two
servers built an 18-9 lead from
which the Lady Wildcats didn't
recover.
In Game 2 Altha showed
some grit as they went toe to
toe with Sneads. Sneads had
built a 5-point lead but Cortney
Harris brought her Lady
Wildcats within two points, 10-
8, with her 3 service points.
Cessna Folsom followed Harris
and tied the game with her 2
service points, 11-11. Loni

rally going by giving Altha their
first lead of the game, 14-13.
The Lady Wildcats remained in
the lead until Sneads knotted
the score at 19-19. The game
remained tied and Altha's serv-
ice opportunity to go back on
top was long and out of bounds.
Altha had a short lived 3 -0
lead in Game 3 but their mis-
cues at the service line cost
them the opportunity to build
on that lead and Sneads over-
came them to win the game and
the match..
Once again. Rebekah Wiltse
led the Lady Wildcats at the
service line with 7 points and
she had a season high 12 digs.
Cortney Harris put up 4 service
points, a service ace, and 3 digs.
Loni Johnson had 4 service
points, a block, a dig, and a kill.
Cessna Folsom was good for 2
service points. Emily Brooks,
Christy Simmons, and Hannah
Waldorff all had a service point.
Brooks had 6 assists. Simmons
was credited with 5 digs, 3 kills,
an assist and a block. Waldorff
came away with 3 digs.
Next year looks bright for
Coach Miranda Rehberg and
the Lady Varsity Wildcats.
They will return all 6 starters
plus they'll be spending their
off-season conditioning, and
playing together in matches.
Additionally, several junior var-
sity players will move up to var-

production. WILDCATS, WE CAN'T

Tiger defense key in win over Chipley


Despite, a sloppy perform-
ance on offense, losing four fum-
bles and one interception, the
Blountstown Tigers defeated
the Chipley Tigers 13-3 Friday
night at Bowles Field. The vic-
tory moved the young Tigers to
2-6 on the season with a tough
road trip to FAMU High Friday
night.
"Our defense played really
well and they had to consider-
ing our offense turned the ball
over five times and our punt
team had two blocked," coach
Greg Jordan said Monday.
"Our defense' did a great job
holding them to only three
points with the great field posi-
tion we kept giving them. We
didn't do a good job of taking
care of the football. We did.
enough to win."
Chipley kept the Tigers in
the game giving up one fumble


and three interceptions.
The difference in the game
was Blountstown's ability to
run the football. "We ran the
ball 53 times for 334 yards and
should have scored more, but
the turnovers killed us," Jordan
noted.
The head coach praised the
efforts of center Shane Bailey,
guards Jeremy Watson, Jason
Money and Tony Maynor, and
tackles Blake Shelton and
Shelby Godwin. "Our offensive
line did a good job."
With the rash of injuries the


Tigers have suffered young
players have stepped into start-
ing roles and are doing a good
job while gaining valuable expe-
rience for next year. "Junior
Varsity player Patrick Wilson
led the defense with 8 tackles
from his safety position. Corey
McClellan did a good job for us
on the defensive line," Jordan
added.
Chipley's Tigers scored first
in the second quarter after
blocking a Jared King field goal
and driving 58 yards. The
Tiger defense held and Chipley


kicked a long 44 yard'field goal.
Early in the second quarter,
Malcolm Ivory got to the side-
line and raced 73 yards for 'a
touchdown. King's extra point
put the Tigers on top 7-3 at
intermission. Ivory had a big
game for Blountstown with 191
yards on 23 carries for an 8.3
yard per carry average.
Darrin Huff added a spark in
the second half with some
determined runs. Huff scored
from 6 yards out following a 59
yard drive with 5:05 left in the
game. The try for two points


failed, but Blountstown led, 13-
3. Huff carried the ball 11
times for 94 yards for an 8.5
average.
Brandon Smith gained 34
yards on 9 carries followed by
PJ Buggs with 19 yards on 6
carries. Princeton Grant added
15 yards on 2 carries.
Quarterback Buggs complet-
ed one of three passes for 10
yards. Huff had the lone recep-
tion.
Blountstown, despite the
turnovers, had a big edge in
time of possession with over 28


minutes compared to Chipley's
18 minutes.
Defensively, Blountstown
held Chipley to 81 total yards -
40 rushing and 41 passing.
Following Patrick Wilson's 8
tackles was Jason Money with
7, Malcolm Ivory with 6, Cavon
Cox with 5 and Jeremy Watson
and .Lance Clemons with 4
each. Blake Shelton and Shane
Bailey each had 3 tackles.

The FAMU game will kick-
off at 6:30 CT at Bragg
Stadium in Tallahassee.

BY BLOUNTSTOWN TIGER Li

HEAD COACH GREG JORDAN .-


A win is a win is a win! The
Tigers held on to beat Chipley
by a score of 13-3 at Bowles
Field on Senior Night.
The B.H.S. Tigers had to
overcome 4 lost fumbles, 1
interception and 2 botched punt
snaps to earn their second vic-
tory of the season. Hats off to
the defense for not allowing
Chipley in the endzone after
any of those turnovers. A 44
yard fieldgoal was their only
score of the night. The
DEFENSE held Chipley to 41
yards rushing on 25 attempts
and 40 yards passing on 4-18
attempts for 81 total yards on
43 total plays. Defensively that
is about as good as you can
play!
On offense the Tigers were
able to rush the football to the
tune of 334 yards on 53 carries
for a 6.3 yard per carry aver-
age. The offensive line of Shane
Bailey, Jason Money, Jeremy
Watson, Tony Maynor, Blake
Shelton and Shelby Godwin did
a great job opening up running


lanes for the backs. Malcolm
Ivory had 191 yards on 23
rushes and Darren Huff had 94
yards on 11 carries. I don't
remember having that many
rushing yards and only scoring
13 points.

We must sustain drives and
get points. We're leaving a lot of
points on the field that has cost
us at least two wins this season.
Maybe we can carry over some
momentum as we head to
Tallahassee this week to take
on FAMU at Bragg Stadium
this Friday night. FAMU High
is loaded with talent with size,
skill, and lots of speed .at every
position. We last went to Bragg
Stadium in 2004 with a pretty
good football team and had our
hands full, winning I think like
15-7. This will be a very tough
football game against a very tal-
ented team. Travel over and

' Get back to your life sooner -

with da Vinci� Robotic Surgery for Prostatectomy

If surgery is required to treat your prostate cancer you may be a candidate for a new less invasive
approach to prostate removal that utilizes robotic surgery. It's the da Vinci� Surgical System, and
Tallahassee Memorial is the first and most experienced facility in the region to offer this innovative
technology.


This method incorporates the latest advancements in robotic-assisted technology
and allows the surgeon greater visualization, enhanced dexterity, precision, control
and superior ergonomics.
For qualified candidates, the da Vinci� Prostatectomy offers numerous potential
benefits over the traditional open prostatectomy, with the following goals:
Shorter hospital stay
Less pain
Less risk of infection
Less blood loss and transfusions.
Less scarring
Faster recovery
Quicker return to normal activities

The County Record, NOVEMBER 5, 2008, Page 9


Story of ChiefBlount and his


tribe's move from Fla. to Texas


Members of the Chief
Blount Band of the
Apalachicola. Band of Creek
Indians recently celebrated the
signing of the 1832 treaty
agreeing to immigrate to Texas
from Florida. In honor of this
memorable historic date, Mary
Sixwomen Blount, Principle
Chief, share this story, along
with the photo above from
2004 featuring many of the
Council members who still live
in Marianna, Blountstown and
Bristol areas. '
Chief William John Blount
was the first of five Apalachicola
Chiefs to agree to go west after
the 1830 Indian Removal Act.
At the urging of old friend Sam
Houston, Chief Blount and
Davy signed the Blount Band
Treaty in the Territorial
Governor's home in
Tallahassee, Florida. Houston
was promising better times in
Texas for the Florida Indians.
But, his plan was to merge the
Blount Indians with the
Coushatta tribe that was under
the leadership of 'Chief Red
Shoes, Blount's uncle.
Houston's goal was to increase
protection for East Texas bor-
ders during the battle for Texas
Independence.
Chief Blount signed the
Blount Band treaty of 1832 and
agreed to take his 246 members
to Texas but did not leave
Florida ,until March of 1834.
Deaths, disease, and desertions
reduced the Blount band to less
than 200 before they finally
departed from Port St. Joe for
New Orleans.
, No previous hardship was
equal to that which awaited
Blount's Band in New Orleans.
The ship's captain unexpected-
ly unloaded the Indians on' an
off shore island on April 7,
1834.- Chiefs Blount
(Lafarthga) and Davy (AKA
Osia Hajo) encamped the Band
and made their way into the
city to collect the remaining
funds due from the sale, of the
Blountstown/Cochranetown
reserves. After being paid in
cash, both chiefs.were arrested
and jailed on false charges of
absconding with stolen funds.
To gain their release from the


New Orleans jail, Blount' had
td pay a fine equal to all the
money, he had been paid for
Florida tribal lands and two of
his slaves (family members),
Cujo and Bob. Upon returning
to the encampment, Blount and
Davy found less than 100 mem-
bers still waiting. Many of
these were sick and all were
terribly frightened.
Blount himself was ill with
signs of cholera contracted in
prison as he gathered the
remainder of his band and set
off on foot across the Louisiana
Plaquemines for Texas.
Pushing hard, the emigrants
crossed the Sabine River into in
East Texas at the end of April
1834, and died shortly there-
after. Cholera was most likely
the, medical reason, but tribal
oral history has retold the cause
of death as a broken heart.
Sam Houston's plan had
failed and the leaderless Blount
Indians found themselves desti-
tute and friendless in a foreign
land. Chief Red Shoes had died
some years before and the
Coushatta Council by tribal law
could not accept Blount's mixed
blood members into their tribe.
The Blount Band Elder
Council gathered arid named
Davy Elliott Principle Chief.
Within a few weeks, stragglers
under the leadership of John
Yellow Hair made their way to
the Blount Band camp. Yellow
Hair convinced Davy to join
him in going back to Florida to
for help. Davy and Yellow Hair
chose three other of the ablest
warriors and set off on the
return trip to Florida. Florida
Territorial Papers record that
the. Indians arrived January
1835 seeking help. . The
Florida Indian Agent ignored
Chief Davy and appointed John
Hair as Principle Chief of the
Blount Indians of Texas.
Although relief funds were
granted, Davy and Yellow Hair
were impressed into military
service in the Second Seminole
War before they could return, to
Texas. Davy Elliott and John
Hair survived .the Second
Seminole War but were deport-
ed in 1839 to the Arkansas
Indian Territory as, Seminole


Prisoners of War.
Blount's four orphaned chil-
dren were left behind with the
remnant of Blount's Band.
Billy Blount/Blunt and his
younger brother, Billy John
(William John) belonged to
Blount's principle wife whose
surname was Cochrane.
Blount's children by second
wife, Mel6e Liska Perryman,
were.Noguse (Bear) and Mel6e
Liska (Mary Elizabeth). The
second wife,. Liska was the half
sister of Chief John Yellow Hair.
A third wife, Nelly Factor, took
her son in common with Blount
(Allen Factor) to the Indian
Territory. Nelly was included in
the 1839 removal rolls as were
Davy and Yellow Hair.
In Texas, the Elder Council
named Billy and Billy John
Blount to co-lead the Blount
Band of Texas Creeks. The
boys were not yet 14 years old
when they accepted the task.
While the Second Seminole
War raged in Florida, the
Blount Indians in Texas clung
to a thin thread of life; led by
children and managed to sur-
vive. The only thing the, boy
chiefs ever asked from the State
of Texas or the federal govern-
ment was for enough hoes so
the people could plant and cul-
tivate their family crops.
Neither government ever came
to the aid of the tribe nor did
they keep their promise to
establish a reservation they
could call home.

A Thought to

Pumember
Since the birth of
o our republic,
. millions of
Americans have
i died for our
country on the field
77flIAdams of battle. Millions
sot more have placed
themselves as a
living shield
between our country and our
enemies, emerging unharmed.
through the kindness of a merciful
creator.
On Veteran's Day, we honor the
dead and the living whose actions
have testified to their courage and
devotion to our country. We honor
their heroism. We give thanks for
their sacrifice, and we share if only
briefly and inadequately - the grief
of loved ones who survive them.
Let us on this Veteran's Day
remember that we have preserved
our freedom only through the
continued willingness of brave men
and women to risk the sacrifices of
their lives for its sake.
On Veteran's Day, we honor them
all; those who wore a uniform in
days past and those who wear it
today. We honor them with a
recognition of a debt that can never
be repaid. It is beyond price...

Letters to the Editor continued


all the children were gone.
(The only ones that I specifical-
ly recall as still being there were
two teenage boys that I asked to
help put my tables and a kennel
in the van.) Because it was
dark and late, and taken two
trips to get things there, I left
some things to pick up the next
day. When I returned, I discov-
ered that some things had been
taken. I suspect children
because of what was taken.
Among these things was a
Halloween pumpkin that my
mother carved, that I intended
to return to her to use in her
decorations, and a scarecrow.
They also took a stool with iron
legs and a wooden seat that was
sentimental to me. (I know
now that I should not have left


it, but it was awkward to fit into
the overstuffed van and I didn't
expect someone to take it.)
Maybe there's a parent out
there who would like to know
where these things came from.
Still, I want to close with
something positive, the high-
light of my night. Even though
we failed to take any orders for
pet collars and tags, or sponsors
to. put' the U.S. Humane
Society's Youth Magazine,
"Kind News" in classes, there
were plenty of opportunities to
speak with people, and espe-
cially kids, about the Humane
Society's cause. It did my heart
good to.see the many children
who came up. and asked
whether they could contribute.
I remember all their faces, but


know the name of only one,
Amanda Senterfitt, (Angie from
the Elections Office's daugh-
ter). What a fine daughter
you're raising, Ms. Angie. You
can be so proud of her. She's
such a fine representative of all
the other children, like her, that
we can all be proud of.
Sincerely,
Patti L. Wood
Frink
PS. The Humane Society is
continuing, with its efforts to
reduce the number of lost pets
that can't get home, and pro-
,mote humane- education for our
children. We will gladly order
(at cost) Boomerang collars and
tags, and take orders ,for "Kind
News" from sponsors. You can
call 674-4075 to do so.
