Sheriff's Office has
released the names of the
two people found dead in a
Mossy Pond home June 18.
The couple has been
identified as Frederick W
Marshall, 66, and Lori Lee
Adams, 46.
According to the
Sheriff's Office, the FDLE
Crime Lab in Pensacola
worked with the Medical
Examiners Office to com-
pare the fingerprints of the
two victims to known inked
prints of the homeowner
and his girlfriend, resulting
in a positive match.
"Although there were
not any new revelations in
this process,' it does bring
some closure to that phase
of the investigation," says
Sheriff David Tatum.
As reported in last
week's edition, the female
victim's son from
Wewahitchka went to

Calhoun County Airport breaks

ground on new paved runway

News Editor
Chamber of Commerce
officials, county commis-
sioners, and Blountstown
City Council members
joined local aviation lead-
ers last Wednesday for a
groundbreaking ceremony
to commence runway
paving at the Calhoun
County Airport.
Maxie Waldorff, who
chairs the Industrial
Development Authority
and Airport Committee,
says the paving has been a
long time coming.
"We've been delayed
for nearly two years on
this project because of
wetland permits,"
Waldorff remarks. "But
we got it. Our contractor
was real patient and
stayed with us, keeping
the price they originally
quoted us."
M Contracting of
Tallahassee won the bid on
the paving project that will
upgrade the 3,100-foot

The airport currently
operates a turf runway
which is utilized mostly by
light twin- and single-
engine planes. The new
paved runway will offer a
new option to local pilots
with much larger aircraft.
In addition, the next
phase of the airport's
improvements will be the
construction of 24 new T-
hangars. Bids are current-
ly being accepted (see the
advertisement in the legal
section of page 11 of this
The airport is located
within the Calhoun
County Industrial Park
which,has been designated
by the Governor's Office of
Tourism, Trade, and
Economic Development
(OTTED) as the site of
the Northwest Florida
Catalyst Project.

members are joined by

Reader discusses the risks

and rewards of flight testing

Letter to the Editor:
My background is that I
am from North Florida.
Hand, Pitts, Newsome,
Ham, Burkett are part of
my family tree and rela-
tives in the area. I am in
the flight test engineering
fieldand wrote this to help
me cope with two crashes
with two loss of lives.
With the crash of T-38
north of Edwards Air Force
Base, we are reminded of
the risk and reward of flight
testing. The US Air Force
Test Pilot School teaches
two sets of students a 48-
week long course and
awards a Graduate degree.
They learn (1) how aircraft
perform and fly, (2) the var-
ious systems on an aircraft
from communications to
weapon systems and, (3)
how to manage and execute
test programs. The stu-
dents go through a rigorous
selection process and go on
to be future leaders in the
military, private industry
and even astronauts. ( for
more information, visit
ctsheet.asp?id=6467 )
Flight testing by its
nature is a risky business.
Testing pushes the enve-
lope of an aircraft's per-
formance and flying quali-
ties as well as the systems
on the aircraft. From the
last two months, we have
seen two clear examples
that this business is risky.
Flight testing reward is a
secure and safe nation
whose airspace is protected
by the very aircraft many
of these test pilots, naviga-
tors, engineers and weapon
officers have tested. We
owe them all our gratitude
and respect.
My prayers go out to the
families, friends and co-
workers impacted by the

Hospital stays are stressful whether it's for an acute illness
or elective surgery. These days many "big city" physicians
demand their patient's stay in "the big city" even longer to
receive their post-surgical or medical rehab. That means a
120-mile round trip to Tallahassee, Dothan or Panama City
for the patient's loved ones and family.
My name is Leann Nobles
Summers and I am an
Occupational Therapist at
Blountstown Health and
Rehab Center. I was born in
Tallahassee, FL and I have
lived in Liberty County all my
life. I attended Liberty
County High School and
graduated in 2002. I
continued my education at
Chipola College earning my
Associate's of Arts degree in
2004. At Chipola I became
interested in Occupational
Therapy and decided to
further my education at
FAMU. In 20,05, I married
Jacob Summers who works
with Georgia Pacific in.
Hosford. In 2006, I
graduated from FAMU with a
Bachelor's degree in
Occupational Therapy. Also
in 2006 I began working at
Blountstown Health and
Rehab as an Occupational
Therapist. I enjoy working
with local people ani
patients who I know and who
know my relatives. Outside
of work I enjoy the outdoors,
spending most of my time on
the river or in the woods, as
well as playing sports. I am
an active member of First
Baptist Church, Bristol.
You do have an alternative! Our family at Blountstown
Health and Rehab want you to know that you can Come
Home to Rehab. Our professional therapists and nursing
staff have been providing high quality physical, occupational
and speech therapy as-well-as skilled nursing care to our
friends in Calhoun, Liberty, Gulf, Jackson and Bay counties
for over thirteen years. So why stay in the "big city" for
therapy when you can get the same professional, quality
services of the "big city" AND the "TLC" provided by our
family and yours right here at home? Tell your doctor
where you want to go and we hope you decide to "Come
Home to Rehab"...Blountstown Health and Rehab.

Remembering Farrah and how she

united one Calhoun County couple

Farrah Leni Fawcett
died June 25th. Farrah hit
her heyday when I was 15,
so yes, I knew who she was.

PA father had retired from
Inland Steel and loved the
fishing in the area, and the
lack of snow. Nancy's
mother had a sister, Gwen
Brown, that lived here, so'
they had visited the area a
Sfew times and decided to
move here. Nancy, and her
two older sisters, Linda and

Glenn, met some young
folks at their aunt's church,
and were going to a skating

There will be a free foot-
ball camp honoring former
BHS and Florida Gator
football player, Michael
Guilford. Unfortunately
Michael's' life was cut short
by a motorcycle accident,
but his impact on all who
knew him still lives. His
former church, coaches,
teammates, family, and
friends wanted to create a
football camp to honor him.
The Michael Guilford
Football Skills Camp will be
held on Saturday, July
18th, at the BHS Football
Field (Bowles Field). The
camp will be for students
entering the 1st 8th grade.
The campers will be divid-
ed into specific age groups
and will rotate through var-
ious offensive and defensive
position stations. Some of
the BHS football coaches,
Florida Gator football play-
ers, and former BHS foot-
ball 'players will be the
coaches for the camp. It is
recommended that the

campers should wear sun-
screen, a t-shirt, shorts, and
football cleats to the camp.
The camp has various
sponsors that allows the
camp to be of no charge to
the campers. A registration
form and the assumption of
risk waiver must be com-
pleted for each camp par-
ticipant. All of the campers
that turn in their camp
forms by July 10th will
receive a free camp t-shirt.
Forms may be picked up at
and returned to the BHS
and BMS office, the First
Baptist Church of
Blountstown office, or

Registration and check-
in will be from 8-9 a.m.

-Summer Institute held at
the Panhandle Area
Educational Consortium
(PAEC) in Chipley, Florida
June 9-12.
The PAEC Patriot
Project is a three-year pro-

mentors in both the content

'teaching American History.
Resources, materials and
field experiences are also
part of the project, which
seeks to improve student
achievement by increasing
teacher content knowledge.
The first three days of
the Institute featured train-
ing by Dr. Sarah Drake
Brown who discussed the
13 Habits of Mind that
make the teaching of
American History a more
accurate discipline, as well
as more meaningful to stu-
dents. Dr. Brown's exam-

entitled, "Healing the

Ms. Arnold's portrayal
of Qney Judge, maid-ser-

how storytelling and char-
acter acting can be an
immensely effective way to
allow students to relate to
Americans who have gone
before and the circum-
stances in which they lived.,
PAEC Patriot Project
Director Tony Anderson
and Managing Consultant,
Mona Ramirez were
extremely happy with the
progress made by the
Patriot participants and
American history they

everyone also. received
materials and lesson ideas
that can be used to enhance

in Pastoral

By Paul F.. Joyner, Ph.D

In my counseling experiences I often see marriages which
awe sick or dying with no apparent reason. The couples do
not have conflicts in money, drinking, sex or in-laws, nor are
they riddled with destructive fight styles. Neither one is in love
with someone else, but the 'zing" has left their marriages.
Their relationships are simply dying. They are in a rut and
"dry-ror has set in.
Unfortunately, such individuals are not. motivated to
expend the necessary. energy to bring change into their
lifestyles. The apparent need is to do something to enrich
their relationships, to bring new life. Such activities may
include the following:
1. PLAY: In my experience, I have found that most of the
people I have dealt with do not know how to "play." The old
adage, "The family that plays together stays together' is, to a
large degree, 'true.
: 2. Dialogue: Couples need to deliberately program times

to Remember

77m Adams

c the United States, we
celebrate many holidays,
but Independence Day (the
4th of July) is the most
American of holidays. We
celebrate with parades,
backyard barbecues, and
fireworks '(often
accompanied, by "The Star-
Spangled Banner", "God
Bless' America", and 'The
Stars and Stripes Forever").
These symbols should
remind us to protect, our
freedom. Let us join on July
4, 2009, in honoring
America by re-dedicating
ourselves to the principles of
our founders. The land that
was free and brave in the
past is only as.strong as the-
free and the brave who call
it home today. Have a happy
and safe 4th of July.

Family Reunion will be
held at the Washington
County Agriculture Center
located at 1424 Jackson
Avenue (Hwy. 90 West) in

4, 2009.
For 100 consecutive
years, the Simmons Family
has gathered around
lunchtime to visit and share
in the traditional feast.
Whether it was under an
old oak tree or under the
old cane mill barn, every-
one brought those wonder-
ful dishes of food to eat and
we all had a great time.
This year starting at
9:30, we will serve coffee,
juice and breakfast pas-
tries. We have children's,
indoor and outdoor activi-
ties planned at this time as
well; some outdoor activi-
ties may require a change
of dry clothes for the* chil-

While the children are
having fun, we encourage
you to join the "elders"
who will be engaged in
sharing family stories and
old, photos. Perhaps you
have old photographs that
you want to bring to join in
this historymaking event.
This is a time to find out
the names of all the people
in those old photos and
reminisce about days gone
At 11:30, we will all
begin to assemble inside to
get ready for our celebra-
tion. At 12:00 noon,
'Reverend Eldon Simmons
.will open the program with
prayer, followed by Posting
of the American Flag,
Pledge of Allegiance and
special guest Heather West
will sing The National
Anthem. Next, we will
have a short Family
History Presentation prior
to lunch.

Everyone is encouraged
to join in the large group
family photo at 1:30. It will
symbolize. :-.every family
member in. attendance and
will help commemorate our
100th consecutive year
anniversary of the
Simmons family reunion.
This professional photo will
be made available for
At 3:00, we will give out
recognition awards, fol-
lowed by door prizes.
Closing Ceremonies
"Retiring the Colors" will
be at'3:30.
Several family members
have asked if we can create
a family cookbook. We
have a volunteer to manage
that for us; all that we need
is the recipes. We will have
a table set up for those
recipes to be collected.
They will be typed and
arranged for you in a cook-
book. So, when you bring

your favorite family dishes
to the reunion (chicken &
dumplings or grandma's
apple pie) bring the recipe.
We hope that you will
take part in the largest., cel-
ebration that we have ever
had this July 4, 2009.
Perhaps everyone will con-
tinue to look forward to the
the family tradition" that
our forefathers set out for
this to be.

two young children, Edith,
age 2-1/2 years old and
Vander a babe in arms, less
than one year old made the
move of a lifetime. In '1913
two momentous events
occurred; the birth of their
3rd child, John Earl and
the purchase of their farm.
A mere forth acres but a
dream come true for them.
The purchase of the land
was a mule and wagon and
$300.00 cash.
At the time of his death
in 1955 Buck was a School
Board member and was
very devoted to education.

many sacrifices. My father,
Earl was not able to finish
school, he could not secure
shoes for his senior year

and he was needed to help
the family. We truly grew
up on the tale of having to
walk 2 miles to school with-
out shoes ( no snow).
Buck made a living for
his family by farming the
land, truck farming- and
fishmongering and making
pegs with a drawing knife.
His reputation for peg
making for the ling Oil
industry was well known
and he received many
orders for the pegs that
were made with a drawing
