HEALTH CARE


Efforts pay off: State finds


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor


Hard work and persistence
have certainly paid off at
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital.
When state inspectors came
through to inspect recently,
they found. the facility to be
deficiency free.
Hospital Administrator
Ron Gilliard describes this
finding to be almost unheard
of in the medical industry.
Gilliard says he has been
through many inspections in
his career in health care,


including the military, and did
not recall any hospital receiv-
ing such a glowing report. He
adds the inspectors were
extremely complimentary of
the staff, noting their high
degree of professionalism and
willingness to cooperate with
them. Inspectors also noted it
was obvious each staff mem-
ber had a lot of pride in their
job and in the hospital.
"They have worked very
hard, not only in getting ready
for this annual tough inspec-
tion, but on an ongoing basis
as we continue to turn the hos-


pital around," Gilliard
remarks of his staff. "I told the
inspectors before they started
they would be impressed with
our staff and the many
changes we've made. They
told me on the way out I was
correct."
Gilliard explains that, each
year, the Florida Agency for
Health Care Administration
(AHCA) conducts a licensure
survey of the hospital. They
look in-depth at all aspects of
the hospital's operations from
the nursing care to disaster
preparedness. They review


many hospital documents and
medical records. All services
provided by the hospital are
checked, including the inpa-
tient unit, the emergency
room, laboratory, radiology,
respiratory therapy, pharma-
cy, and the dining hall. They
review all personnel records to
assure all hospital staff are
current in required areas such
as CPR and licenses. The
appearance of the hospital,
including its cleanliness, is also
a high interest item. They

after the murder to ask
him to purchase the gun.
Wynn reportedly
declined, but offered to
take the gun -to a Joseph
Primus Gainer in South-
port to exchange it for
marijuana. Gainer, who is
a registered felon and sex
offender and currently on
DOC supervision,
allegedly exchanged
about $250 dollars worth
of marijuana for the gun
used to kill Patel. BCSO
investigators went to
Gainer's home and found
him and Sarah Lynn Hill
'at the residence. A
search warrant was
obtained, Gainer's home
was searched, and the
firearm and marijuana
were found.

Deputy fired



woman not in

custody a ride
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A Calhoun County Sheriff's
deputy has resigned amid alle-
gations hed allowed a woman not
in custody to ride in his patrol
car.
According to Sheriff David
Tatum, Deputy Bliss Moreau
was fired last Wednesday. Back
in the spring, a Fountain ,
woman stepped forward alleg-
ing she had an affair with Dep.
' Moreau last year while he was
on duty. The allegations were
never proven and Dep. Moreau
denied the affair, however,
Sheriff Tatum says he stressed
* to him at the time to not have
any female in his patrol car
unless she was under arrest.
After receiving the report
. that Dep. Moreau was recently
transporting a woman who was
not in custody, Sheriff Tatum.
tells The County Record,
"[Dep. Moreau] alleges he was
giving her a ride, but given the
other problems I've had with
, him, I went ahead and fired
him. I've got some changes I
need to make and that was one
of the first ones."

Danny. Ryals, Tommy McClellan and Kenneth Speights take their oath, administered by David House.

New school officials take office;


consolidation, cuts are discussed


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
The Calhoun County School
Board held :an organization
meeting Tuesday morning with
new Superintendent Tommy
McClellan, along with recently
elected School Board members,
Danny Ryals (district 1) and
Kenneth Speights (district 4)
,taking their oath of office.
During the meeting, Kelly
King (district 2) was elected
chairman of the board and Tim
Smith (district 3) was chosen as
vice chairman. Attorney David
House was appointed for anoth-
er year.
Superintendent McClellan


said the board was a team and
he hoped everyone would work
-together. Ryals stated that he
planned to make a motion at
the next meeting to rescind a
previous motion to consolidate
Altha and Blountstown high
schools. Board member Danny
Hassig (district 5) asked if his
intent was to do away with
plans for a new high school and
Ryals stated it was just to
rescind the consolidation
motion.
Ryals also suggested that,
due to budget cuts, the board
put a freeze on the assistant
superintendent's position cur-
rently held by Greg Jones who

,.- 0, 4-

is retiring in December. He
stated this would save over
$100,000. McClellan said he
had planned to immediately
advertise, the position so Jones
could train someone. Hassig
suggested allowing McClellan
time to meet with Finance
Director Suzanne Mason to
review the budget before a deci-
sion is made. King recommend-
ed advertising the position and
then determine if a position
could be combined to save
money.
The matter will be further
discussed at the regular School
Board meeting set for Tuesday,
Dec. 9, at 5 p.m. in the court-
house basement.

twill host the 3rd Annual
" Christmas Tour of Homes on
2Friday, Dec. 12, from 5:30 to
8:30 p.m.
This year's Tour .of Homes
begins at the Blountstown
United Methodist Church on
ILake Hilda, 20500 Central
Avenue West (Hwy. 20). Built
in 1941-42, the designer was
one of its members, Corrie
Clark Tucker, who had studied
at Emory University. Tickets
for the Tour of Homes may be
'purchased here the night of the
event.
The brick structure is noted
for its beautiful stained glass
- windows, magnificent pipe
organs and carillon, which
chimes the hour and half hour.
The church will be decorated in
the traditional red and greens
'with a stately ten-foot
Christmas tree decorated with
Chrismont 'ornaments made by
its members. These white and
gold decorations depict various
Christian symbols.
The second stop is the
Methodist parsonage next door
to the church, at 20480 Central
Avenue West in Blountstown is
the home of Reverend Charles
and Mrs. Shirley Smith, for-
merly of Murfreesboro, TN.
With them is the youngest of
their four children, Stephen
who is a #sophomore at
Blountstown High School. This
brick ranch-style house, built in
the 1950's has a modem interi-
or updated by the talents of
Shirley. The Smiths have cre-
ated an amazing aviary out of
part of the screened in back
porch filled with Charles' collec-
tion of exotic small birds. This
is a must see, especially for the
kids!
Third on our stop is the
Baptist manse at 17072 South
Main Street (SR 71 South)
across the street from the
Baptist Church. This is the
home of Rev'erend Daniel and
Mrs. 'Sally Throckmorton, for-

by the array of ferns and tropi-
cal plants on the expansive
front porch. Both the Methodist
and Baptist homes have won
the Torreya Garden Club 'Yard
of the Month' under the current
owners.
The former home of Pick
and Alberta Hollinger was
bequeathed to the church at her
death in the late 1990's. The
Manse Committee has done a
masterful job of updating this'
craftsman style home built circa
1915 by Pick's uncle, Pick
Higgins. It is one of the archi-
tectural gems of Blountstown.
The fourth home is the home
of Gary Shuler, 21748 SR'71
North. Built of a dark red brick
it is one of the town's most out-
standing new residences.
Gary's two-story home has a
beautiful swimming pool with a
latticed *brick wall surround.
This regal home is often used
for large, community-wide gath-
erings.
The fifth home on the
Christmas Tour is the home of
Glenn and Susan Warren on
the Chipola River, 17533
Chipola Heights Road (just off
CR 275). In keeping with a
family tradition, Glenn's moth-
er Margaret's home was on the
2007 Tour.
Built in the style of a"
Spanish hacienda, it has a spec-
tacular view of the Chipola
River, designated one of the


Nation's 'Wild Rivers' for it's
unspoiled natural beauty. The
home is artfully decorated with
antiques and collectibles,
reflecting Susan's knowing eye
for the unique. The guesthouse
will also be open during the
tour. She is the former owner of
the Country Cottage in
Blountstown.

The sixth and final home on
the tour is Longleaf, the
Calhoun County residence of
Robert and Kay Trammell
which is located off Charles
Pippin Road in the Ocheessee
area ofT of State Road 69 North.
Robert Lee Norton built this
dignified Victorian lady in 1904
in the Queen Anne style.

MS girls suffer first loss to


-Tolar; defeat Franklin County


BY COACH MATTHEW NICHOLS

The B.MS Lady Tigers suf-
fered their first loss on'Monday,
November 10th, at the hands of
the Tolar Bulldogs. It was 'a
tough defensive battle between
what are probably the two best
teams in the conference.
S.-The Bulldogs were able. to
pull out a win by applying full
Scqurtpressure and getting the
-Tigers out of their rhythm
offensively. The Bulldogs were
ahead after the first quarter 8 -
4. However, through some good
defense the Tigers were able to
erase the lead and tie the game
up at 10-10 by halftime. At the
end- of the third quarter the
score was 14-12 and we still felt
we were in good shape to win
the game; but in the fourth
quarter we made a few costly
mistakes and our starting point
guard fouled out. This allowed
the bulldogs to pull away for 18-
12 win. We played great
defense and anytime we hold
someone to 18 points we should
be able to win the ballgame.
Tolar deserves a lot of credit
though, they played great
defense also and just played a
smart ballgame as a whole.


They were very well coached.
While the loss was disappoint-
ing, hopefully,we will use it as a
learning tool and it help us get
better as a team. The Tigers
were led in scoring by Alexis
Speights and Jayla Brigham
both with 4. Demeca Martin
and Jackie Dudley also chipped
in 2.
The Lady Tigers did howev-
er come away with a win in the
fifth quarter by a score of 12- 6.
They were led in scoring by
Stephanie Abbott with 6.
Stephanie is has been doing a
great job and continues to
improve every game. Jackie
Dudley had 4 and Adrienne
Santillus contributed 2.
On the following Thursday
we. hosted the Franklin County
Seahawks. The Lady Tigers
were able to come away with. a
win, by a score of 26-7. You
wouldn't believe it by looking at
the final score, but at halftime
the score was 4-2 favoring the
Seahawks. This was frustrating
because we know what we are
capable of offensively as a team
and 2 points a half is unaccept-
able, but we talked at halftime
about what were doing wrong
and the girls responded tremen-


dously by scoring 24 secorid half
points. We just need to be more
patient and get back to good
ball movement and taking high-
er percentage shots. I continue
to be pleased with our defense.
We made some adjustments
from the last time we played
the Seahawks, because in our
last meeting they hit 8 three
'pointers and ws e narrowly won
by a score of 38-36. So to hold
them to only 7 points was a big
difference from the last time we
faced off.
Thd Tigers were led in scor-
ing by Demeca Martin with 10
points. She was followed by
Alexis Speights and Jayla
Brigham, who both had 6.
Tiaisha Scott --and Davina
Fountain also contributed 2
points apiece.
The Lady Tigers also were
able to win the fifth quarter by
a score of 25-6. They were led"
in scoring by Adrienne
Santillus, who went off for 13
points. She was followed by
Kassie Wood with 6, Stephanie
Abbot with 4, and Jordan
Griffin with 2 points.
The Lady Tigers played
Wewa Tuesday. Watch for
details next week.


BY COACH LINK BARBER

The BHS Lady Tigers hit
the hardwood this past week-
end in the Wakulla High School
Preseason Tournament.
The Lady Tigers finished the
tournament with one win, and
one loss. In the first game of
the tournament the Lady
Tigers faced off against the
Wakulla War Eagles. The
Eagles started off strong in the
first quarter and never looked
back as they defeated the
Tigers by a score of 55-24. "In
the first game we werejust put
manned. The Eagles were big-
ger, faster, and definitely a lot
more physical than we were.
Our girls were a little intimidat-
ed and it showed. We did man-
age to do some things well but
all in all we were just the weak-
er team. We can definitely play
with them we just have to get a
little more aggressive and play a
little smarter."
In the second game the Lady
Tigers faced off against the
Madison County: Cowboys.
The Lady Tigers bounced right
back from their first game loss
to defeat the Cowboys by a
score of 49-40. "We were real
pleased with the win over the


Scottsferry


Cowboys., Scoring 49 points in
the second game was a very
promising note for the season.
Our girls shrugged off the previ-
ous game loss and responded by
winning a close game in the
fourth quarter."


Shenika Wilford led the
Tigers in both games, scoring
11 against Wakulla and 15
against Madison County.
Selena Williams contributed 14
points in the game against
Madison County.


BMS varsity boys



undefeated at 7-0


BY COACH BILLY JONES

The BMS Boys Basketball
teams continue to win. Both,
groups 7-0. The Varsity defeat-
ed Tolar 57-12. Bryan
Middlebrook, Javakiel Brigham
and Anthony Jones led in scor-
ing with 14, 13, and 9 points.
Roosevelt Martin scored 8 and
Hunter Jordan scored 6. Also
Anthony and Hunter led in
RB's. This game turned out
good considering' Tolar had us,
2-0 for the first 3 minutes of the
1st quarter. We finally started
making better passes and shots.
They next played Franklin
County and won 39-33.
Roosevelt led in scoring with 15
points. Both Hunter' and


Javakiel had 7 each and Bryan
and Anthony had 6 and 4
points. Twelve of Roosevelt's
points were. 3's. We scored 21
points with 3's as a team and
also hit 4 out of 6 foul shots.
This was the closet game win
for our season. We missed way
too many lay-up shots which
would have not made this such
a close game. We did win
though and now are still unde-
feated.

We're on the road twice this
week at Wewa Tuesday and
Port St. Joe, today. We only
have one more home game and
it will be Tuesday, December 2,
at 4:00. Come out and support

Storm shortens game; Tigers win 28-0


The Blountstown Tigers put
28 points on the scoreboard in
the first half against the Wewa
Gators Friday night before a
strong line of thunderstorms
moved in during the third quar-
ter forcing officials to end the
game. Most of the homecoming
crowd at Bowles Field had
heeded warnings and left before
the bad weather hit.
"We played well on offense
and defense against" Wewa.
Probably one of our better
games this year," coach Greg
Jordan said Monday.
Eleven Tiger seniors started
the season, but injuries during
the year left some watching
from the sideline. They all con-
tributed to the program during
their careers at BHS and
deserve recognition. Tiger sen-
iors for 2008 are: Malcolm
Ivory, Jared King, Heath
Bailey, Lance Clemens,
Demarco Johnson, Jeremy
Watson, Shane Bailey, Shelby
Godwin, Jeff Jenkins, Chase
Johnson and T.J. Rainer.
The win over Wewa left the
Tigers at 3-7 for the season and
out of the playoffs for the first
time in years. Despite the
record, young players were able
to gain some valuable game
experience for next year.
"We've got most of our skill
players coming back next year,"
Jordan noted. PJ Buggs started
five games at quarterback and
improved as the season pro-
gressed. Runningback Darrin
Huff had some big games at
ruhningback in the second half
of the season for us.
Runningback Brandon Smith
should be stronger and faster
for us next year. Defensive
back Paul Mosley and running-
back Alexander Garrett will be.
back as juniors next season.

Watson flies through the
air to bring down a Wewa
runningback; Brandon
Smith (28). goes in for a
touchdown that was nulli-
fied bya penalty. Smith
caught a pass from Buggs
and scored from 22 yards
out on the very next play.


Linemen who saw and return
next year will be Jason Money,
Blake Shelton, Tony Maynor
and Dowling Lee.
Wewa moved the ball early,
but costly turnovers ended their
.scoring threats and gave the
Tiger offense golden opportuni-
ties. Paul Mosley and Jason
Money each had interceptions
and senior Shelby Godwin
recovered a fumble for the
defense.
Darrin Huff opened the scor-
ing for the Tigers blasting
through the line and racing 49
yards for a touchdown.
Following a penalty, senior kick-
er Jared King booted a 35 yard
PAT.
Two minutes later, PJ Buggs
hit Brandon Smith who raced
22 yards after the reception for
a score. Smith had scored on
the previous play, but a penalty
nullified his run.
Midway the second quarter
senior Malcolm Ivory capped
off his Tiger career with a nine
yard scoring blast.

BY BLOUNTSTOWN TIGER

HEAD COACH GREG JORDAN go


What a great way for the
seniors of the 2008 football sea-
son to go out. We told our play-
ers all week this was our playoff
game this year. With all the
non-football things going on
during Homecoming, it's often
difficult for the players to focus
on the task at hand and that is
winning the football game. It
was a shame the game had to
be shortened. Not only for the
seniors, but 'for a lot of the
younger players that had not
played much this year. There's
always next year for all those
younger players.
It was the final action for
seniors Malcolm Ivory, Jared
King, Heath Bailey, Lance
Clemons, Demarco Johnson,
Jeremy Watson, Shane Bailey,
Jeff Jenkins, Chace Johnson,
Shelby Godwin and T.J. Rainer.
This was a group of players that
faced a lot of adversity this sea-
son. Things happened out of
our control that had negative
impacts on our season. But this
group of players has a lot to be
proud of as a body of work over
four years.
This is the final Coach's
Corner for the 2008 football
season. We started practice on
Aug. 11th and now the final
whistle has blown on this high


school football season. Coming
into the season this team had
high hopes of playoffs and win-
ning seasons as we do every
year. This team paid for the
past successes of a lot of wins
the last .couple of years with
scheduling for the 2007 and
2008 seasons. Our season really
took a turn for the worse during
the Wakulla week when we lost
Chase Johnson, Heath Bailey
and Alexander Garrett for the
season due to injuries. Had
those injuries not occurred we
probably would have won that
game and a couple of more and
been back in the 2nd round of
the playoffs. In a school our size
the one thing you can not have
and be successful is INJURIES.
We had enough to last us sever-
al seasons this year alone.
I want to thank all the
LOYAL TIGER FANS that
stood behind this team when a
lot of people gave upon them.
This group fought as hard as
any to make you proud, some-
times it's just not meant to be.
This was one of those years in
small school football where
you're not going to win every
game. So, Tiger fans, we'll see
you in the spring of 2009. It'll
be here before we know it. Go
Tigers!!!!


halftime, Buggs lofted a long
pass to senior Heath Bailey
who caught the pass in stride
and sprinted 38 yards for a
touchdown. Bailey had started
the season at quarterback but
suffered a broken foot in the
third quarter of the Wakulla
game. King's extra points gave
the Tigers a 28-0 lead that
stood until the game was
stopped.
Huff led the Tigers with 114
yards on only 6 carries, a 19
yard per carry average. Buggs
ran the option play well and
gained 24 yards on the ground.
Senior Jeremy Watson got his
chance to play in the backfield
in the second half and gained 27
yards rushing. Ivory rushed for
15 tough yards and Brandon
Smith ran for 7 yards and had
one reception for 22 yards.
Senior Demarco Johnson,
who was diagnosed with lymph
node cancer before the season
and had undergone treatments,
got into the game Friday night,
rushed for 9 yards on 2 carries,
made 2 tackles on defense and
was active on special teams.
Jeremy Watson had 8 tack-
les and 2 sacks for the Tiger
defense. Jason Money had 7
tackles and an interception fol-
lowed by Paul Mosley (one
interception) and Patrick
Wilson with 5 tackles. Lance
Clemens had 4 tackles and
Dowling Lee had 2 tackles and
a sack. Frankie Murrell,
Marquel Thomas, Brandon
Smith, Anthony Curry, Tony
Mayor and Corey Womble
were all in on defensive plays.



The Florida Wildlife
Commission Division of Law
Enforcement reports that, on
November 8, Officer Benjamin
Johnson was patrolling the
Bradwell Unit of the Wildlife
Management Area in Liberty
County when he stopped two
hunters in a pickup truck.
Officer Johnson checked the
two subjects and asked them if
they had any luck, and they
replied, "No." Officer Johnson
asked them to open the ton-
neau cover of the truck so it
could be inspected for wildlife.
The driver stated, "Might as
well get me now, because I've
messed up."
Officer Johnson found one
spike buck taken with a shot-
gun during archery season.
Proper citations were issued.
Buckshot, two shotguns and the
deer were taken as evidence.

Veterans' Day
By Elizabeth Reagan and
Brittany Stephens
Tuesday, November 11, was
Veterans' Day and Altha School
celebrated accordingly. The
annual Veterans' Day program
was headed by the high school
leadership class and the ele-
mentary students also partici-
pated.
Ms. Cindy Alday and Ms.
Rhonda Price's second grade
classes joined Ms. Mollie
Branton and Ms. Renee
Wallace's third grade classes to
perform the musical "We Sing
America" under the direction of
Ms. Tina Smith. This musical
not only entertained and hon-
ored the veterans, but it also
taught us about five important
national symbols: the flag, the
Pledge of Allegiance, the eagle,
the Liberty Bell, and the Statue
of Liberty.
The high school leadership
students"were in charge of set-
ting up and the reception for


the veterans. Each person in
the leadership class had a part.
Heather Reagan and Mallory
Basford told the history of
Veterans' Day. Kayla Yon read
what each fold in the flag meant
and what it stood for. Ethan
Byler, Steven Vassallo, Nick
Mclendon and Jake Edenfield
folded the flag at the assembly.

Here's an
inte r.esting
thought which
we might do well
I to ponder. When
an engineer.
TI77 Adams plans a building
FuneralDtrtor he does not
provide, merely
for normal stresses. He
multiplies his estimates of
probable strain by three, six or
even twenty, to make the
structure safe no matter what
happens.
The reserves are important!
Our reserves as humans are
always amazing. Whether it is
spiritual, or physical strength,
we were all made to meet and
master strains. We are
designed to face life, and any
situation life creates,
undismayed.
When we see sorrow or some
other great crises facing us - it
is well for us to remember that
God designed us, and He will
never put more on us than we
can bear.. Reserves of
strength, physical and spiritual,
life hidden within us.

our economy, it is even more
important than ever for families
to get the assistance they need
to achieve in life. That's why
I'm reaching out to the caring
residents and business leaders
in Calhoun County.
As we approach the tradi-
tional season of "giving", please
consider a gift to the
Foundation to help Calhoun
Library Family Literacy. You
see, we have a significant story
to tell. Our programs teach -
free of charge - parents and
children so they can improve
their reading skills or they learn
English as a second language.
Our students are your friends,
your neighbors, and the class-
mates of your children.
The Volunteer USA
Foundation will,provide a dol-
lar-for-dollar match to the


Calhoun Library Family
Literacy Academy for any con-
tributions made to Volunteer
USA, up to $15-thousand. In
addition, we will provide $15
for every new volunteer hour
that benefits the local academy.
So, if you can spare a few hours,
whether you want to read our
kids or offer a professional serv-
ice such as website design or
administrative assistance, your
time will bring in much needed
new dollars.
Donations of any level make
a big difference:
$50 will buy a series of books
so a child can experience the
joys of reading at home
$100 will allow several fami-
lies to share a meal and attend
evening literacy classes
$1000 will fund one family
for an entire academic year


We are making a positive dif-
ference in so many lives. In
fact, pre-k children who enter
our program behind their peers
advance as a group to the mid-
dle of the "normal range" -
readying them to enter kinder-
garteh on grade level. And par-
ents in our program are better
able to help their children with
homework, something most
were not doing before enrolling
in our classes.
We are a small nonprofit
filled with big and caring hearts.
We know there are many peo-
ple in our community who have
the desire and ability to help.
Please contact me at
liza.mcfadden@volunteerusa-
fund.org or call 850.562.5300

Fire department needs your



help to rescue old Engine 2


The effort is on to save
Blountstown Fire Department's
Engine 2.

ABOVE: Retired Chief Harvey
Grantham at the wheel and two
of his children in the back, circa
late 60s/early 70s.

AT RIGHT: A sad picture of
Engine 2 taken just two weeks,
ago.


BY BEN HALL
Blountstown Fire Chief

Engine .2 was a 1945
Ford/Pirsch Fire Engine pur-
. chased new by the City of
Blountstown in 1945 to replace
Engine 1, a 1927 American
LaFrance originally purchased
for the City by Neal Lumber
Company. Engine 2 served not
only Blountstown, but the
entire Western side of Liberty
County and all of Calhoun
County for nearly 40 years. (I
wish we could get that kind of
life out of a fire engine now!)
Two other fire engines came
and went during the service life
of Engine 2; Engine 3, a '64
GMC and Engine 4, a '74
GMC were both in service with
Engine 2. Mayor and Former
Police Chief Winston Deason
remembers one of Engine 2's
finest moments as the Eagle
Theater burned in February of
1971. "If it weren't for that


Ford fire truck, Blountstown
would've burned to the ground!"
In the tate 1980's Engine 2
was sold at a public auction and
forgotten for over 20 years.
Today, the Blountstown
Historical Society and the
Blountstown Fire Department
would like to bring this piece of
Blountstown history back to our
city and restore it to its original
condition.
, There is much work to be
done, and the first hurdle is to
raise 'funds to buy back the
engine from a private citizen.
That's where we're asking for
our community's help. On
Saturday, December 6th,
Blountstown's firefighters will
be holding a Pancake Breakfast
Fundraiser. Connie Clayton of
Connie's Kitchen has graciously
agreed to allow us to use her
restaurant to try to bring
Engine 2 back,to .Blountst6wn.
We'll begin serving pancakes at


6:00 am and we won't stop until
everyone has had at least one!
While you're browsing the
Christmas Festival on the
Square or the Downtown
Farmer's Market, stop in and
have a pancake, and help us
save this piece of history!
I can only guess how proud
some of our former firefighters
would be to see Engine 2 trav-
eling the roads again. I've rec-
ollected in brief with former
BFD firemen like Truman
Holley, George White and the
late Orenr Clements about how
important this truck was to our
area and how many houses this
fire engine saved. Forty or 50
years from now, I'm sure my
daughters would love to have
their kids or grandkids ride in
our Engine 1, that we've just
purchased. I'm sure these for-
mer firefighters would love to
show their kids and grandkids
how things used to be.


Check out charities before


donating during the holidays


McDaniel hosting
Sheriffs Christmas
gospel concert
Dec. 6 in Marianna
The third annual Sheriff's
Christmas gospel concert will
be held Saturday, Dec.6, at
6:30 p.m.. in the Marianna
High School auditorium, 3546
Caverns Road, Marianna.
The annual concert is spon-
sored by re-tired Jackson
County Sheriff John P Mc-
Daniel. All proceeds from the
concert will benefit the Florida
Sheriff's Youth Ranch.
This year's featured groups
will be The Inspirations of
Bryson City, NC ,and The
Bibletones of Gulfport, Miss. A
love offering will be received.


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer . Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is reminding con-
sumers that they can check on
the legitimacy of charities that
seek donations and find out how
registered charities spend their
money. The reminder comes as
charities launch their busiest
time of the year, November and
December. Many collect about
half their annual donations in
the short time between
Thanksgiving and New Year's
Day.
Most charities that do busi-
ness in Florida are required to
register with the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services each year
and provide financial informa-
tion about income and expens-
es.
"Unfortunately, as the num-


ber of charitable organizations
grows, so does the number of
con artists posing as legitimate
charities to take people's
money," Bronson said.
Consumers can find out if a
charity is registered by calling
the department's consumer


helpline at 1-800-HELPFLA
(1-800-435-7352) or 1-800-
FLAYUDA for Spanish, or by
logging on to
http://www.800helpfla.com.
They can also check the com-
plaint history of an, organiza-
tion.


Hit and Run contd-


He then noticed a newer model
silver Ford pickup traveling
southbound and watched as the
truck struck the boy.
Another witness described
the truck as gray and said the
driver got out of his vehicle,
appeared to have a brief con-
versation with the injured boy,
got back in his truck, and drove
away. A third witness said the
driver was a black male wear-
ing a white shirt with black


pants who looked between 30-
40 and weighed approximately
250-260 lbs. This witness also
described the truck as gray, but
said it was a Chevrolet.
The child was airlifted to
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital
and released by the end of the
week. The driver of the truck
remains at large. Anyone with
information on this case is
urged to contact the BPDat
674-5987.

"I think this helps to verify
the high degree of dedication
and professionalism of our
entire staff," Gilliard says of the
AHCA findings. "We work hard
on providing quality care in a
courteous and compassionate

Many hospital visitors have

so much," he remarks. "You
have to provide a quality care
