home
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Just ' days before
Thanksgiving. an Abe Springs
family has lost their home and
possessions, but feel grateful to
still have each other.
Nancy Holt was playing on
the computer Saturday night
at her home on Hwy. 275
South while her five-year-old
daughter, Ohvia, slept and a
friend was-watching television.
A fire was crackling in the fire-
place, but suddenly it began to
spread. Nancy's friend shouted
for her to grab a water hose
from '-outside and when she
returned, smoke had filled the
entire house.
Nancy and her friend raced
to little Olivia's bedroom and
placed her in the family's van,
then called 911. "I bet fire-
fighters were here within 10
minutes," she tells The County
Record.
'First on the scene were
Colby and Peggy Atkinson.
two volunteer, firefighters from
the Westside VFD, along with
Deputy Eddie Dalton of the
Calhoun County Sheriff's
Office.
Colby says his first question
to Nancy was, "Is everyone
out of the house?" Initially, she
said, "Yes," then realized
Olivia was gore. The little girl
had run back into the house.
"Peggy and Eddie stood at
the door with a flashlight and I
chased the little girl through
the house," Colby says. After
he caught her and brought her
outside, his wife asked the
child why she went back. "My
feet were cold and I wanted to
find my shoes," she replied.
Nancy says she believes her
daughter awoke in the van,
didn't immediately see her
mom, and panicked. "I think
she lost sight of me when I
went to move our truck."
Firefighters from Westside,
Carr-Clarksville, and Kinard
worked to extinguish the fire
Saturday night only to have it
start back up early Sunday.
"Every tanker in the county
responded," Colby remarks.
Nancy says she is so grate-
ful for all the' firefighters who
worked so hard to save her

tary," he says of the horse poop
matter; "People who are follow-
ing behind horse units have to
watch where they are walking.
It's also unsafe. When you have
entertainers like Shriners on
go-carts or motorcycle units, if
they run over it, they could go
out of control, into the crowd,
and cause injuries."
But another good reason for
the pooper scoopers, says
Woods, is to be able to place thie
horse units anywhere in the
parade lineup, instead of just at


the back. He notes that the
pooper scooper role in other
parades is often a source of
entertainment.7 "I've seen
parades with a clown unit and a
,wagon for this job and they put
on a show. It can be entertain-
ing or it can be a chore."
The Chamber of Commerce
reminds anyone participating in
the parades that the entry
deadline is Friday, Nov. 28. The
parades will be held on
Saturday, Dec. 6 with the Altha
parade at 1 p.m. and the


Blountstown parade at 5 p.m.
The theme is "A Pioneer
Christmas". There is no entry
fee for the parade.
There is a "Santa Clause" in
the participation agreement.
Since there is only ONE Santa,
the Chamber of Commerce
vehicle is the ONLY vehicle for
Santa and Mrs. Claus.

CALHOUN-LIBERTY

HOSPITAL


















During the last couple of years of our Dad's life, he was
admitted to Calhoun-Liberty Hospital several times. The
staff always gave their best in the treatment of him and
always made accommodations for any of the family that
wanted to stay with him. We can't say enough about Dr.
M. Farooqi's treatment and dedication for our dad. He
and the hospital staff treated Dad and our family with
kindness, compassion and professionalism. When we
read about the opportunity to "adopt-a-room" at the
hospital, we wanted very much to help the hospital in
this endeavor, as, well as do in memory of our Mom and
Dad.,

Pledge of Allegiance.
While everyone devoured
his/her "brown bag" lunch and
then polished off the luscious
desserts, the Door Prize
Drawing was held. 'Lucky Lila
Smith won the prize - a charm-
ing pink and white teapot. J.P
Dunbar and Jo Johnson were

These dedicated "plant
detectives" - Travis and Kathy -'
have created 'their own herbari-

tions must be prepared proper-
ly and must be vouchered by
the major Florida herbariums
at the University of South
Florida and Florida State
University..
'Travis added that they have
collected some 170 species new
to science for Calhoun County


(this means they have never
before been scientifically
proven to exist in Calhoun

henbarium).
Karen spoke briefly about
native plants that act as host
plants for caterpillars and nec-
tar plants for butterflies and
hummingbirds. She distributed
handouts to the attentive audi-
ence.

Mites win championship


Liberty County Tiny Mite



team wins Big Bend title


There was a lot laying on the
line for the Liberty County
Tiny Mite football team
Saturday when they took the
field for the Big Bend Tiny
Mite Championship Game.
The team entered the con-
test with an 8-0 mark and
sought not only a championship
but also a perfect season.
In a hard fought little league
game the Liberty County team
prevailed by holding on to a 12-
6 win over a very good Port St..
Joe team.
Liberty County scored a
touchdown in the first quarter
when Jerrod Beckwith scooted
62 yards for a first quarter
score. He next zipped 91 yards
, for a second quarter scoi-e put-
ting Liberty County up 12-0 at.


halftime.
Liberty County had played
good defense in the first half
with Beckwith, J.J. House,
Tommy Hatcher, T.A. Polver,
Brody Holland, William Hayes,
Troy Durden, Trey Watson, and
Kyle Holcomb leading the stout
defense.
In the second half Port St.
Joe got going and scored a third
quarter touchdown. ,
The Gulf County team was
marching again in the fourth
quarter when a hit by Hatcher
caused a fumble and Polver
recovered the ball to stop the
drive.
Key runs by Beckwith and
Hayes picked up first downs
and allowed Liberty County to
eat up most of the clock before


having to turn the ball over to
St. Joe on the St. Joe 20.
The winner's defense forced
4 incomplete passes and
Liberty County became the
2008 Big Bend Football
Leagues Tiny Mite Champs.
Liberty County coaches
were Tony Moore, Macky
Burke, Brent Holland, and
Bubba Hayes.
Players , were: Joshua
Owens, William Hayes, Jarrod
Beckwith, J. J. House, Todd

New rules will boost deer

hunting on Tate's Hell WMA.


Two new rules in place on
the 187,700-acre Tate's Hell
Wildlife Management Area in
Franklin and Liberty counties
this hunting season are
designed to improve the quality
of the hunting experience.
The first new rule requires
that legal buck deer must have
at least one antler with two or
more points. Each point has to
be at least 1 inch long, and the
antler has to be a minimum of 5
inches long.
Under the second rule, no
one can shine or look for deer
from midnight until 30 minutes
before sunrise. There is an
exception to the light-shining
rule for raccoon or opossum
hunters.
Both rules were put in place
after numerous requests from
members of the hunting public,
according to Adam Warwick, a
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) wildlife biologist.
"The two-points-on-a-side
antler rule is an effort to


improve the quality of deer
available to hunters on Tate's
Hell," Warwick said. "Also,
we'll be collecting harvest data
from deer killed on the area and
conducting deer track counts on
designated area roads. The goal
is to improve the deer herd."
The "no-shining rule" is in
place on Tate's Hell and the
nearby . 582,700-acre
Apalachicola National Forest
(WMA) this season.

"This is one of those things
where a lot of hunters felt like
those trying to shine or locate
deer after midnight and during
the wee hours of the morning
were gaining an unfair advan-
tage over other hunters. This is
just to make sure there's a level
playing field," he said.
General gun season hunting
dates for both Tate's Hell and
Apalachicola WMAs are Nov.
27-30 and Dec. 13 - Feb.4. A
quota permit is required for
anyone hunting on Tate's Hell
through Dec. 21.


scored 6 and Javakiel Brigham
scored 5. Caleb Mills and
Dimitri Simmons scored 2 and
1 point. Defensively, our team
is really playing well, especially
when we press. They get a lot
of phase transit with their press
that leads to easy lay-up type
shots.
In their win over St. Joe we
had three double scorers,
Javakiel, Hunter, and Anthony
were 14, 10, and 10 points
each. Bryon had'8, Rioosevelt 7
and Caleb had 1 point.
These guys really played
great, leading by 34-14; at half
time. Again, with only one 8th
grade starter, this is really an
exceptional team. They are
still no. 1 in their conference.

FW-C suggests

lifejackets for

holiday gifts
Are you wondering what gift
to get your loved one this holi-
day season? The Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) has an
idea. If that person is a boater,
a life jacket would make a great
gift - especially a newer and
more comfortable version that
the recipient would be more
likely to wear while boating.
Unfortunately, the FWC
investigates dozens of boating
accidents every year. So far
this year, there have been 49
boating fatalities, 35 of which
resulted in drowning. For this
reason, the FWC promotes
wearing life jackets all the time
while on the water.
"The best present you could
give is one that could save a
life," said Capt. Richard Moore,
FWC's boating law administra-
tor. "And you would be giving a
present to yourself if that life
jacket saves someone's life."
Improved life jacket technol-
ogy has resulted in smaller,
more comfortable models,
which would be a welcome
replacement to the old, bulky
models of times past. One com-
. pact style straps around the
waist like a belt pack. Another
style fits like suspenders over
the shoulders. Some of these
life jackets inflate automatically
when the wearer falls into the
water. Prices of the new, com-
fortable, inflatable life jackets
start at around $60.
To learn more about inflat-
able life jackets and the benefits
of wearing one while boating,

On Saturday, the Calhoun
County Teeny Mites traveled to
Wewahitchka to take on the.
undefeated Port St. Joe
Dolphins in the Big Bend Youth
Football League Championship.
Hopes of a win for the Tigers
were dim after a pair of Port St.
Joe's offensive backs broke
loose with long runs resulting in
touchdowns.
After an unproductive half,
the Tigers were down by 12
points. The Tigers began the
second half with possession of
the ball. They drove the ball
down field, and with a less than
two minutes left in the third
quarter, running back, Kevon
Godwin ran 30 yards to put six
points on the scoreboard. After
a failed two point conversion,
the Tigers trailed 12-6. The
biggest defensive play of the
game came on the Dolphins'
next possession of the ball. With
the Dolphins facing a third
down with eleven yards to go,
Blountstown's Jamarius
Engram stripped the ball from
one of St. Joe's running backs
and gained possession of the
ball.
SAfter one first down on the
Dolphins' 20 yard line, the
Tiger offense seemed to have
.stalled. With a third down and
ten yards to go, Godwin
received a toss from quarter-
back, Kyle Skipper, and after
drawing the defense in, Godwin
hit tight end, Gabe McClellan,
with a half back pass. After
breaking a tackle, McClellan
raced to the endzone to score a
game tying touchdown.
With the game tied at 12-12,
Skipper handed off to Godwin
around the left side and behind
the blocks- of Alex Buggs and
Tucker Jordan, . pounded
through the Dolphin defense to
score the two points, giving the
Tigers a lead 14-12 lead. The
Dolphins were then shut down
by the Tiger defense for the last
three minutes of the game. The
Tigers held on to win 14-12.
The Tiger defense, who gave
up 120 yards of offense in the
first half, held the Dolphins to
minus five yards total offense in
the second half of the game.
Jamarius Engram led the
defense with five tackles,
Godwin, Jordan, Blase
O'Bryan and Denzel
Washington had three tackles
each. Kevon Godwin led the
offense for 13 carries for 70
yards rushing. Alex Buggs had
9 carries for 60 yards. Tucker
Jordan had 3 carries for 15


yards and Kyle Skipper had 5
carries for 10 yards. Gabe
McClellan had one reception


for 20 yards.
Blountstown had 175 yards

ketball team as they debuted
this week under the direction of
Coach Tony Davis.
The Tigers took part in a
pre-season tournament at

Wednesday.. "We xer. a little
shaky." say, Coach Davis. "We
%%ere nervous starting out and
trying to feel our way through -
trying to understand the coach-
ing and style of play we want to
have this season."
Although the Tigers defeated
West Gadsden by 20 points and
Wewa by four, Coach Davis v.as
not thrilled with their perform-
ance. "We'll take the win. but it
wasn't pretty," he remarks.
However, the Tigers opened
their regular season Monday
and Coach Davis was
impressed with the %.ay the
Tigers stepped up to the chal-
lenge against a tough Malone
team.

"It was our first home game
and the crowd support ,.0as
tremendous," he points out. "It
was just an exciting atmos-
phere, the energy was great.
The student body , V.as
pumped."
At the end of the game. the
Tigers won 60-58. "It '.as down
to the wire," says Coach Davis.
"At one point, Malcne would hit
a three-pointer, then we would
hit a three-pointer. We would
hit a layup, they would hit a
layup. It came down to the free
throws at the end. It was just a
total team win. Everybody


played a part."
. The Tigers were led by
Drew Brazzell with 17 points
and 10 rebounds. Jimmy
Jackson followed with 10 points

Jerkins, Heather Parrish, and
Shelly Price with 111 points.


Land Judging is a challenging activity in which the youth must learn how to call the amount of organ-
ic matter found in the top soil; determine the rooting zone thickness; declare how fast water and air can
move through the soil; shoot slope (without instruments); figure erosion and drainage. Information from
these factors will help decide the land class and what conservation, mechanical, and fertilizer and soil
amendment practices are needed. Special thanks this year goes to the Farm Bureau Board, Raymond
Russell, Oglesby Nurseries, Blount Insurance, Yoder Septic Service, Terry Stone, Division of Forestry for
sponsoring the event, volunteers Marcia Price, Rodger Price, Don Miller, and Steve Johnson.


AND JUDGING WINNERS


Rate
As Florida's graduation rate
continues to rise, its dropout
rate continues to decline.
According to the results,
Florida's annual high school
dropout rate dropped to its low-
est point ever this year at 2.6
percent. This rate,is a decrease
of 0.7 percentage points com-
pared to last'year's rate, and a
decrease of 2.8 points since
1998-99.
Increased minority achieve-
ment was the leading force
behind this decline. From 2006-
07 to 2007-08, the dropout rate
decreased for African-
American, Hispanic, American-
Indian and multiracial students,
with African-American students
showing the most significant
improvements in dropout
reduction.

Thank You

I want to thank all the voters that supported
me in my campaign for school superintendent.
Words cannot express the gratitude I have for
those who went over and beyond the call of
duty to help me get elected. I want to thank
my two most worthy opponents for their efforts
in their campaign. The election is over and we)
must all work together to bring unity, and
harmony back. The school district belongs to
all of us, and I am a public servant entrusted
with a great, and challenging responsibility. It
took many people to help me get elected and
it will take many people to make my term of
office a successful one. Thank you all, and
most of all thank you Lord. We will need your
wisdom in all of our decisions, and your help in
our efforts.

Teacher Millie Williams


chosen as delegate to China


Delegate to China
Mrs. Millie Williams, Fourth
Grade Teacher at Altha Public
School, was asked to be a mem-
ber of the Professional Teaching
Standards Delegation to China
by National Teacher of the Year
Ms. Michele Forman during the
first part of December. The
delegation is through the People
to People Citizen Ambassador
Programs. They will be in the
cities and countryside of Bejing,
Guiyang, Xi'an and Kunming.
Some of the professional
highlights of the program will be
meeting with educators from
the areas of Elementary
Education through the
University levels, as well as
touring their facilities. The
main areas of discussion will be
on education goals, teaching
practices, the diversity of cur-
rent education settings, access
and equity in education K-uni-
versity, maintaining both unity
and diversity in education, bal-
ancing innovation and change
with traditional culture, special
needs education, the use of
standards-based assessments,
early childhood education, K-
university curriculum, and pro-
fessional teaching standards.
Even with all of these meet-
ings and school visits, Mrs.
Williams will be able to walk on
the Great Wall of China, visit
the Yunfeng Tunpu (Fortress
Village), see the famous Qin
terra cotta warriors who perpet-
ually stand guard over the tomb
of Qin Shi Huangdi, the first
emperor of a united China, visit
the Golden Palace and Stone
Forest. Of course, there will be
the enjoyment of trying the
Chinese Peking Duck and other
local foods.


Mrs. Williams is looking for-
ward to sharing her experiences
with her family, class, and fel-
low educators.

In this hurried
and hectic world,
there are still a
few times when
we pause and
with humility and,
Tim Adams reverence recall
FU"+a o . our heritage and
give thanks for
our spiritual and material
blessings. Thanksgiving is such a
time,
Thanksgiving Day is a day
-unique in American history.' Other
peoples have. had thanksgiving
days but not like ours. Ours .
began with the Pilgrim Fathers
who, having survived a severe
winter the year before and having
reaped abundant crops that fall,
celebrated the first Thanksgiving
Day in this country in 1621.
Basically, Thanksgiving should
be a day of thankful
contemplation for all the things
we have to be thankful for...so as
you gather with your family this
holiday season, remember to give
thanks for your heritage, your
spiritual and. material blessings,
and for precious moments

daughter battle cancer together


Kinard VFD receives truck from Callaway

Christmas came early for the Kinard Volunteer Fire Department. Thursday night, Callaway Mayor Ken
Meer was on hand at the Kinard Community Center to present the VFD with'a fire truck, compliments of
the City of Callaway. When Doyle Daniels of the Kinard VFD learned recently that the Callaway Fire
.Department was getting a new truck, he suggested to the mayor they give their old one, with only
40,000 miles on it, to Kinard. He had no idea the mayor would take him up on the idea. Above, Kinard
VFD members are shown with Mayor Meer at the truck presentation.


A Calhoun County family

Tracey Aldoy Keel was

Edioi, ei "
During the holidays eachh
year I try to reflect on the
things that I am thankful for
and the blessings in my life.
This year' . I immediately
thought of my workplace. I am.
the principal at Blountstown
Elementary School but, I have
a very insignificant- role there.
My job is made so much easier
by the faculty and staff that
makeup the school.
Each day I am amazed by
the dedication of the people at
Blountstown Elementary.
They are a safe haven for so
many children. At BES it does
not matter who you are, where
you came from, or where you-
are going, once a child becomes
part of the family they are nur-
tured, encouraged, educated,
and most importantly loved.
Teaching is often a very
thankless job. Most people do
not realize the hours that many
of the teachers put in. It is just
"they are off all summer", not
knowing most work during the
summer preparing for the next
year. It is not uncommon for
me to go to the school at night
to get some extra work done
and find several others still
working. I see so many going

basis. ' Whether it is finding
clothes for a needy child, tutor-
ing after school, wiping away
tears, or dipping food for 1000
at Thanksgiving, the people at
BES will do whatever it takes
to get the job done.
It is not only the teachers
that are dedicated but every
employee. My assistant,
Debbie Williams, is the hardest
working person I know! Our
custodians, secretary, data
entry, lunchroom workers, bus
drivers, and aides work diligent-
ly to make our school the best
for our children. .Are we per-
fect? No. Do we make mis-
takes? Yes! We are only
human. With almost 700 chil-
dren you are bound to have
some confusion at times. The
one thing a I am sure of is that
everyone shares a common
goal-to each child reach their
potential.
Again, I feel so blessed to be
able to play a small role in the
lives of our students, and work
with so many wonderful people.
Count your blessings and
Happy Holidays!

Mears and K-9 Harley capture

1st place at search competition
During the first week of November, the Inspector General's Drug
'Detection Canine Unit attended the Southern Hill's Kennel annual
seminar and recertification program. During the course of the week,
the canine/handler teams were challenged with many different train-
ing scenarios. At the end of the week, during the certification
process, the eight Inspector General's handler/canine teams com-
peted with 60 other teams from Florida, Kentucky, Maryland, West
Virginia, and Georgia. .For the second year in a row, these local
tedms finished the competition with the top two prizes, placing in
the top five in all the competition categories. These dogs are
trained to detect drugs, weapons, and other contraband and are
used in prisons and on prison grounds including parking lots,
throughout the state. Pictured is Region I Canine Inspector Chris
Mears of Blountstown and Harley. They took first place in vehicle
and building searches.


Plazarin wins blue ribbons at fair
Hannah Plazarin represented Calhoun County 4-H well this year when
she submitted two art pieces in the Fine Arts division at the North Florida Fair.

past Mother's Day. She was delighted to find out that she won blue ribbons
with both of her pieces and will be receiving a premium check from the North
Florida Fair Committee soon. Hannah attends Carr School and became
involved in 4-H this year when she joined the newly formed Calhoun County

Elements of Thanksgiving
Psalm 100
People become accustomed
to ingratitude. In an over-
crowded bus, a man stood up to
give a lady his seat. How did
she react? ' She fainted. When
revived, she said, "Thank you"
and then he fainted!
Criminal lawyer Samuel
Leibowity saved 78 men from
the electric chair, yet not one
ever thanked him.
A rebirth of thanksgiving to
God 'and to people will make
our world a richer place to live.
The Bible counsels, "Be ye
thankful!" - In O.T. times, as
worshippers walked in proces-
sion approaching the Temple,
they carried thank offerings and
sang together Psalm 100, a
hymn of praise. This majestic
psalm contains the elements of
thanksgiving to God.
There is to be an aura of joy.
"Shout with joy before the
Lord, 0 earth! Obey Him glad-
ly; come before Him, singing
with joy" v.1 & 2. Praise to God
is bathed in joy. We serve God
with a holy joy. Don't let the
joy be missed from your praise.
You. need never go away dis-
appointed when you come into
His presence. We get what we
expect from every service,
every prayer, every effort, and
every day. Each day brings
gladness to the person who
faces it with expectation
through Jesus Christ. Do we
expect a great day or do we
expect a bad one?
There is to be an atmos-
phere of dependence. We can-
not make it on our own, in real-
ity there are no self-made men
we are God's children. He is
sovereign and in control of the
earth. We need our Shepherd,
we must be dependent on Him
or we will lose our way and fall
from grace. We are more ready
to express gratitude when we
are dependent on Him.
The Bible says, "We are the
sheep of His pasture." It reads
literally, "We are the flock of
His feeding." The sheep relax-
es in his dependence upon his
shepherd. No tension or being
up tight, just rest in the arms of
Jesus. Remember, dependence
on Him is when we have the
most to be thankful for.
Dependence on God is our
strength.
Also there is an attitude of
gratitude. "Go through His
open gates with thanksgiving;
enter His courts with praise.


Give thanks to Him and bless
His name." v.4. Each of those
four verbs is an action and
actions develop habits:
"Go...enter..give...bless."
Gratitude is to be an attitude
of life, a habit, not simply an
occasional incident. Learn to
appreciate the good things you
possess and you won't miss the
good things you don't possess.
Thank God.for life, for salva-
tion, for family, for church, for a'
roof over our heads, for food
and etc. It's amazing what
happens when you are grateful.
Go to a person and thank them
for their friendship, for some-
thing they have done for you,
for encouragement they have
given, for the example they
have been to you. Again it's
amazing what happens to you
when you are grateful.
Then there is to be an accent
of grace, "For the Lord is
always good. He is always lov-
ing and kind and His faithful-
ness goes on and on to each suc-
ceeding generation" v.5.
Thanksgiving pivots on God's
grace to us. The high point of
worship is not recognizing God
as Creator, but in realizing
"The Lord is good; His mercy is
everlasting; and His truth
endureth to all generations."
Because God is good, His
mercy reaches to us. His truth
carries the idea of His faithful-
ness and dependability. He is
not about to let you down!
That's a lot for which to be
thankful. God and His word
never fails, never, never, never.
Let's be thankful for the joy,
the dependability of God and
the everlasting benefits of God's
great grace! "Praise God from
whom all blessings flow!"
