vehicle


case is


dosed
BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
Seven weeks after being
handed a case to investi-
gate whether or not
Blountstown City Manager
James Woods' city vehicle
was driven by one of his
children without his knowl-
edge, the State Attorney's
Office has closed the case.
According to the report
issued last week by
Assistant State Attorney
Bob Pell, Blountstown
Police Chief Glenn
Kimbrel requested the
State Attorney investigate
possible criminal conduct
after e teen and juvenile
passenger were stopped in
November by a BPD offi-
cer. The driver said Woods
had given permission to
take the vehicle; Woods
insisted he had not.
"Given the conflicting
statements, there is insuffi-
cient evidence to charge a
crime in this case," Pell
concluded in his report.

ALTHA HOMECOMING CRASH


Teen walks away from
crash with broken nose
A Marianna teen was fortunate to walk away
from a single vehicle crash in the early morning
hours Sunday with only minor injuries. Dakota
Partin, 19, was behind the wheel of the truck
shown above when he slammed into a tree on
Hwy. 71 North near CR 275 in Calhoun County
around 3:45 a.m. He reportedly left the scene of
the accident, but was found to be in good condi-
tion. "He was very lucky," his mother, Rebecca
Partin, tells The County Record. "He broke his nose
and had some scratches." The accident was
investigated by the Florida Highway Patrol.

Arrow of Truth

by Rev. R.W Waterman


It's the pits, but don't quit


Acts 16: 30 - 32
Thomas Goble used to
love to listen to Donald
Barnhouse preach each
Sunday morning years ago
on the radio. Thomas
remembers him telling a
story about a friend who
asked him what his favorite
symphony was. Dr.
Barnhouse responded that
his favorite was Braham's
Fifth Symphony. His friend
asked him how it went, and
Dr. Barnhouse proceeded
to whistle the tune.
As he attempted to whis-
tle this great work of
Brahms, however, he
became aware of the ridicu-
lous mess of his endeavor-
ing to whistle a symphony.
The daring of his trying to
pucker his lips and repeat
the music that requires a


full assembly of strings,
brass, woodwinds and per-
cussion instruments was
obvious.
The preacher then relat-
ed how he felt each week as
he attempted to take God's
great symphony of revela-
tion and communicate it
through his "whistling"
effort called preaching.
We all relate to that.
Those of us who attempt to
preach, teach, and witness
to the great truth of God's
redemptive plan all feel like
whistlers whistling a sym-
phony. But we are remind-
ed of Paul's words: "God
was pleased through the
foolishness of what was
preached to save those who
believe." I Corinthians
1:21.
May we never give up.

Through new "Florida Back to Work Program"...


Employers can receive



wage reimbursement


Local employers creat-
ing new jobs and hiring
qualified individuals may
be able to receive reim-
bursements ranging from
80 percent to 95 percent of
wages paid by participating
in the Florida Back to
Work program sponsored
by the Chipola Regional
Workforce Development
Board (CRWDB). This
program is open to all
employers including pri-
vate, non-profit and gov-
ernmental.
"We think this program
is a great way for all types
of employers to increase
their staff without having a
significant increase in cost,"
said CRWDB Chair
Raymond Russell. "This
program will also help put
many of our local residents
back to work while putting
more money in our local
econosny."
New jobs ranging in
hourly wage from $7.25
minimum to $19.23 per
hour are eligible for partici-
pation in the program. In
one example developed by
the CRWDB, an employer


hiring a qualified individual
at $10 per hour would
receive a net reimburse-
ment of $9.50. Individuals
are qualified for the pro-
gram based upon their
wages within the last thirty
days.
"Given the current
unemployment rate we will
have a lot of very skilled
workers that qualify for this
program," said Richard
Williams, Executive
Director of the CRWDB.
Williams added that to
qualify an individual has to
have a child 18 or younger
residing in the household
and have a household
income that is less than 200
percent of the poverty
level. As an example, a
family of four with a house-
hold income of less than
$3,675 in the last 30 days,
or a family of two with a
household income of less
than $2,429, could qualify.
If one or more of the adults
in the household has been
unemployed for longer than
30 days they stand a very
good chance of qualifying
for this program.


Russell said he was glad
the board could participate
in this employment pro-
gram. "If you qualify we
may be able to help you
find a paying job with a
local employer so this isn't
a hand out, but it. is a way
to help our residents start
working and bringing
money home once again."
Residents of Calhoun,
Holmes, Jackson, Liberty
or Washington Counties
wanting to participate
should contact their nearest
One-Stop Career Center so
their eligibility for the pro-
gram can be determined.
One-Stop Centers are
located in Blountstown,
Chipley and Marianna.

Employers in Calhoun,
Holmes, Jackson, Liberty
and Washington Counties
interested in Florida's
Back to Work Program
should contact Kenny
Griffin at the Chipola
Regional Workforce
Development Board at
.850.718.0456 Ext. 114 or

School held a school competition, then the finalists compet-
ed at the countywide event for the local title. The winner
advanced to Apalachicola for the annual Rivercade pag-
eant. Apparently, the girl on the far right (unknown) took the
local title in 1956. Libby Peacock was the winner in 1958
and Pat Smith Bowden claimed the title in 1959.


Now for this week's "Looking Back" mystery photo...we've
been told these two fellas bear a striking resemblance to
Bug Cayson and Gene McClellan. No word on the pooch's
name. Any of our readers want to confirm their identities?

Hidden Gems of the 2000s


Instead of my usual one
film per column approach,
I've decided to try a little
something different this
week and highlight some of
my favorite films you may
have missed from the previ-
ous decade. I hope every-
one finds something new to
watch here. Everything
listed is now available on
DVD.
Moon is a dark, thought-
provoking science fiction
tale of a man spending
three years on the moon by
himself (or so he thinks).
Sam (Sam Rockwell) works
alongside a computer
(voiced by Kevin Spacey),'
sending back to Earth
parcels of a resource that
has helped reduce our plan-
et's power woes. Near the
end of his stint aboard the
space station, Sam has a
bizarre encounter with ...
himself. The film is an
intriguing, brilliantly shot
sci-fi in the vein of 2001: A
Space Odyssey. It's des-
tined to become a classic.
(R)
Shotgun Stories is the
tense, riveting story of a
family feud in a small
Arkansas town. It puts an
original spin on a classic
concept, and is incredibly
well-acted. In the lead role
as the leader of a set of half-
brothers abandoned as chil-
dren by their father,
Michael Shannon (best
known for small but memo-
rable supporting roles in
Revolutionary Road and 8
Mile) delivers one of the
best performances of the
decade. The film (shot on
location in England,


Arkansas) perfectly cap-
tures the essence of small
town southern life in a very
meaningful and moving
way. It is well worth seek-
ing out. (PG-13)
Cars did very well at the
box office in 2006, but it
never received the level of
acclaim that I feel it
deserved. It was unfairly
brushed aside by critics as
one of weaker entries in the
Pixar catalogue, which is
simply not true. It is beau-
tifully animated, the voice
acting is top-notch, and the
story of a town passed over
by time is presented in a
very beautiful and tragic
way. Not only is it a fantas-
tic film, it's one of my
favorite films of the decade,
and is considerably better
and more affecting than
most starring actual
humans. Pixar's second
best, closely behind Wall-E.
(G)
Brick is one of the best
and most original films of
the decade, starring Joseph
Gordon-Levitt ((500) Days
of Summer) as a quiet teen
who will stop at nothing to
find the culprit when he
finds his ex-girlfriend lying
dead in a drainage ditch. It
seamlessly blends the clas-
sic film noir genre of the
1940s into a modern high
school setting in a very
intriguing and powerful
way. Fine performances all
around, great direction, and
a twist that you will truly
never see coming. (R)
Thanks for reading.

Hospital reviews "Top Ten List";



Summers named Employee of Year


BY RON GILLIARD
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital
Administrator

A new year brings out
those Top Ten lists again,
and here's mine for
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital
for 2009. As with my past
lists, there's really no true
order of importance but
just a good list of the many
good things that transpired
the past year.
Number 10 - We won
best overall float in both
the Blountstown and
Bristol Christmas parades!
This is, to me, an indication
of the dedication and hard
work of our staff. It also
shows we like to participate
in the community we
serve! I'm very proud of
our staff for their extra
effort.
Number 9 - Mr. Laddie
Williams, our board
Chairman, was named
Trustee of the Year for the
entire state by the Florida
Hospital Association. His
well deserved recognition is
representative of our entire
board and their efforts at
saving this hospital and
moving it forward. Mr.
Laddie gave credit to the
staff, our other board mem-
bers, our Medical Staff and
to the good Lord.
Number 8 - We recently
were notified of a $450,000
funding grant secured by
Congressman Allan Boyd.
We will put this to good use
to expand our areas to
serve you, with additional
treatment space and hous-
ing for our busy Emergency
Medical Services. We are
most grateful to Mr. Boyd
for his efforts on our behalf.
Number 7 - We
received other funding this
year that will help increase
the services we provide to
you, including a State grant
to open an endoscopy clinic
to do diagnostic scopes. We
hope to be conducting
scopes by mid-March.

Plant a tree

Friday for

Arbor Day
Residents of Florida will
celebrate Arbor Day 2010
on January 15. While
National Arbor Day is held
on the last Friday in April,
several states, including
Florida, observe the holiday
at a time best suited for tree
planting for their residents.
The best way to cele-
brate Arbor Day is to plant
trees. The Arbor Day
Foundation's Web site
(www.arborday.org) offers
many helpful tips to cele-
brate the tree-planters' hol-
iday, from how to plant a
tree to selecting the right
tree for the right place.
To find out which trees
grow best in Florida, con-
sult the Arbor Day
Foundation's Hardiness
Zone Map at www.arbor-
day.org/treeinfo.
Florida has 138 cities
and towns that were hon-
ored by the Arbor Day
Foundation as a Tree City
USA community. Tree City
USA recognizes communi-
ties that are committed to
its trees. More than 135
million Americans live in a
Tree City USA community.
To see a list of Tree City
USA communities, go to
www.arborday.org/pro-
grams.
The first Arbor Day was
celebrated in Nebraska on
April 10, 1872, thanks to a
resolution proposed by
Nebraska City, Neb., resi-
dent J. Sterling Morton.
Morton, a civic leader, agri-
culturist, and former news-
paper editor, urged
Nebraskans to "set aside
one day to plant trees, both
forest and fruit."
The cabbage palmetto,
sabal palmetto, was adopt-
ed as Florida's state tree in
1953. In 1970 the state leg-
islature passed that a pal-


metto tree should be fea-
tured on the state seal
instead of a cocoa palm.
Known for its many uses,
including medicine and food
as well as landscaping, the
palm has the ability to grow
in almost any soil. This
palm is also the most wide-
ly distributed palm in
Florida.


We've purchased over
one million dollars in new
equipment with grants
from the State and grants
and low interest loans from
the United States
Department of Agriculture
in the last couple of years.
Modern, state-of-the art
equipment is now in place
throughout the hospital to
better serve you.
Number 6 - All of the
nice folks that have adopt-
ed rooms or areas or made
donations to the hospital,
were recognized in a nice
ceremony last month. This
has been a huge factor in
our upgrading the entire
hospital in appearance and
efficiency. We, again, thank
all of these kind donors!
(We only have three inpa-
tient rooms left for adop-
tion.)
Number 5 - We began
the implementation of
informational technology in
our clinical areas last year.
We're very excited about
the improvements in safety
and overall operations
these upgrades will bring.
We'll be really "wired" to
better serve you with an
electronic, paperless med-
ical record system. This is a
very important step for us
and you.
Number 4 - We imple-
mented digital mammogra-
phy last October and it's
been really busy serving
our patients with the latest
technology in this critical
area. Thanks once again to
Angie Hill and her Merle
Norman Studio for adopt-
ing the "mammo" room.
We cut the ribbon in
October for this beautiful
room as a part of National
Breast Cancel Awareness
Month.
Number 3 - Our staff.
The significant upgrades in
our appearance and equip-
ment are nice, and impor-
tant, but our employees
have been THE main key
to our turnaround. A big


Hospital Administrator Ron Gilliard congratulates Debbie
Summers, Director of Nursing, on being named Calhoun-
Liberty Hospital's Employee of the Year.


THANK YOU goes to each
member of our staff.
We just selected our
Director of Nursing, Ms.
.Debbie Summers, as our
Employee of the Quarter
for the last quarter of 2009.
We're very proud of her
and the earlier quarterly
winners, Brenda
McClendon, Sarafina
Torres, and Pearl Clayton.
And out of these four super
staff members, Debbie is
our Employee of the Year!
Debbie is the perfect
representative of our entire
staff and the courteous and
compassionate care we
strive to provide to all our
patients. She is hard work-
ing, dedicated, highly pro-
fessional and a true patient
advocate. Congratulations
Debbie!
Number 2 - Our
Medical Staff - We're
extremely fortunate to
have excellent physicians
in our small, rural commu-
nity. While many similar
sized areas have no physi-
cians, we're blessed with
outstanding doctors on our
active staff and in our busy
Emergency Room. They
do the admitting and the
ordering of tests and did so
in record numbers last
year.
Number 1 - I bet you


guessed it! You, our
patients, are again, at the
top of our list! No patients?
No hospital! Your utiliza-
tion of our services contin-
ues to increase and we
thank you so much for
making the Top Ten List a
reality!
Last month marked the
four year anniversary of
the Association Board
regaining this hospital and
the beginning of the turn-
around mentioned above.
And what an amazing four
years it's been. Lots of
progress has been made to
assure you a high quality
hospital, meeting your
health care needs.
We feel 2009 was a good
year for the hospital and
we're excited about our
future. We'll continue to
work hard for an even bet-
ter list for 2010!
Give me a call if you
have any questions about
my Top 10 List or anything
about the hospital at 674-
5411, ext 206
And once again, Happy
New Year from Calhoun-
Liberty Hospital!

BY KRISTY TERRY
Executive Director
Calhoun County
Chamber of Commerce

The Big River Valley
Hunt, coordinated by the
Calhoun County Chamber
of Commerce, was held
Jan. 7 - 9 and was a
tremendous success. Eight
hunters from across Florida
visited Calhoun County as
they embarked on two- and
three-day hunts for deer
and wild hogs. One group
traveled from Key Largo,
with another hunter coming
from Port St. Lucie, one
from Brandon, one from
Yulee, as well as one local
individual.
Hunters arrived on
Wednesday afternoon, and
started their hunts
Thursday. Big Bend Bait
& Tackle served as head-
quarters as visitors gath-
ered there to meet their
local volunteer guides.
The Ducks
Unlimited/Apalachicola


Valley Chapter provided
breakfast each morning for
hunters. They were also
treated to a "Big Game
Dinner" Friday evening at
the Panhandle Pioneer
Settlement with a menu
that included Apalachicola
Bay oysters, fried gator tail,
quail, frog legs, and deer
kabobs, all prepared by
Jeremy Whitworth. A vari-
ety of desserts was provid-
ed by the Country
Creamery & Gifts.
Norris Smoke House
was the processor for the
hunt, and-owner Bill Norris
stayed busy. The packages
included the opportunity to
kill one buck, one doe, and
one hog. Over the course of
the hunt, seven of the eight
hunters killed at least one
thing, with many killing
more. Larry Lee of Yulee
bagged a nice 8-point.
"This entire event has been
wonderful, and I'm already
looking forward to coming
back next year," said Lee.
Each hunter received a
registration bag with items


donated by Chamber mem-
bers, coupons for discounts
at local stores, as well as
promotional materials on
Calhoun County. Several
stayed at the Airport Motel
and all visited restaurants
in town, as well as shopped
in local stores.

Sponsors for the event
were Ducks Unlimited,
Southern Gator Trails, and
Live Oak Production
Group. Of course, the hunt
wouldn't have been possi-
ble without the generous
participation of Neal Land
& Timber Company and
Big River Cypress &
Hardwood. Phil McMillan,
Harry Rogers, Emory
Godwin, and Ty Overholt
were instrumental in coor-
dinating and guiding
hunters.
The Chamber is proud
that the first Big River
Valley Hunt was such a
success and is already mak-
ing plans for next year's
event, as well as other
nature-tourism projects.

"That coon dog'll hunt"


by Tony Young, Florida Fish
& Wildlife Conservation
Commission
Some of my huntin' bud-
dies and I really live for
being out in a wet patch of
woods in the middle of a
cool night and hearing the
not-so-distant sounds of our
coon hounds when they
open up on a hot trail.
There's just something
about those hounds' voices
that sounds both pleasing
and eerie at the same time.
We like to brag about
whose dog actually struck
the trail first and whose got
to the right tree first. And
boy, you can sure tell the
difference when the dogs
are just trailing a coon ver-
sus when they've got one
treed. Their barking goes
from longer, less frequent
howls to just downright
choppiri' it down, baying as
loud as they can, as quick
as they can, with every
breath that's in 'em. You
can really sense the
urgency that's in their voic-
es when they're sitting' to
the tree.
That's when it's time to
turn on the flashlights and
start making your way
through the swamps toward
that pleasant, oh too famil-
iar sound in the darkness.
If you'd like to try coon
huntin', besides having a
good coon dog, you'll need a
Florida hunting license.
Residents pay just $17 for
the year. Nonresidents
have the choice of paying
$46.50 for a 10-day license
or $151.50 for 12 months.
If you're thinking about
hunting on one of Florida's
many wildlife management
areas (WMAs). you also
must purchase a manage-
ment area permit for


$26.50. But find out which
WMAs allow coon huntin'
by reading the brochure on
each area you're thinking
about trying. These WMA
brochures are at your local
tax collector's office or
online at
MyFWC.com/Hunting.
All licenses and permits
are available at county tax
collectors' offices, any retail
outlet that sells hunting and
fishing supplies, online at
www.wildlifelicense.com/fl
or by calling toll-free, 888-
HUNT-FLORIDA.
Coon hurltin' with dogs
at night, while using a flash-
light or headlamp, is
allowed. On private proper-
ty, when in possession of
written landowner permis-
sion, you may hunt rac-
coons year-round, but most
of us prefer to hunt 'em
during the colder months so
as not to get our dogs
snakebit or attacked by
gators.
You're only allowed to
harvest raccoons and opos-
sums using .22-caliber
firearms (other than .22-
magnums) or single-shot
.410-gauge shotguns with
shot no larger than No. 6.
During the hunt, all
firearms must remain
unloaded except immedi-
ately prior to shooting treed
or bayed raccoons or opos-
sums.
There are no daily or
seasonal bag limits on how
many raccoons or opossums
you may harvest, and hides
and skins of these furbear-
ers may be possessed in
any number, at any time.
All dogs used in pursu-
ing raccoons or opossums
are required to wear collars
or tags which identify dog
owners and their addresses.


Hunting either furbearer
by "shining" or using lights
from moving vehicles, boats
or animals is against the
law. It's also illegal to trans-
port wild-trapped live rac-
coons within, into or from
Florida.
Individuals with a trap-
ping license ($26.50) also
may take raccoons and
opossums by means of live-
trapping or the use of
snares, but these traps
must be checked at least
every 24 hours. Using steel
or leg-hold traps is prohibit-
ed.
Only those persons with
a trapping license are
authorized to sell the hides
and meat of these furbear-
ers. In order to buy and sell
this meat for commercial
purposes, you're required
to possess a dealer's
license, which you can get
from the Florida
Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services'
Division of Food Safety by
calling 850-488-0295.
So, if you're looking for a
new and exciting huntin'
opportunity, get ahold of a
good coon dog, grab your
.22, a flashlight and a pair
of hip waders and take to
the swamps!
Here's wishing you a
happy New Year and good
huntin'. If you can, intro-
duce someone new to a dif-
ferent kind of hunting -
pass the tradition down. As
always, have lin, hunt safe-
ly and ethically, and we'll
see you in lhe woods!

wins; host Aucilla Friday


MALONE, JANUARY
5-The Wildcats began the
New Year hoping to avenge
an earlier loss to the
Malone Tigers but at the
final buzzer they found
themselves on the wrong
end of the scoreboard.
At halftime the Junior
Varsity Wildkcats (1-5)
trailed only 22-18.
However, a 14-7 Tigers'
run in the third quarter led
to another Malone (10-2)
victory, 42-34.
The Top Cat in scoring

points. Also, he led Altha in
rebounding with 3 and he
blocked a shot attempt.
Kent Rogers rang up 7
points, including a 3-point-
er. Caleb Chew chalked up
6 points, snagged 3
rebounds ahd he had a
steal. Tyler McClellan
came away with 4 points, 3

the season and he had a
rebound. Both Corey
Barton and Kyler Dew
chipped in 2 points apiece.
Barton -pulled down 2
rebounds while Dew
blocked a shot attempt and
he snagged a rebound.
On a cold night the var-
sity Wildcats found them-
selves up against a Malone
team that was red-hot from
3-point land. The Tigers'
knocked down 10 of 13
from beyond the arc lead-
ing to their 68-24 victory:
Tyler Hamilton led the
Wildcats with 10 points and
on the boards by pulling
down 5 rebounds. Will
Rogers was money with 2
3-pointers for 6 points and
he had 2 assists. Ethan
Ellis came away with 5
points (including a 3-point-
er) and he blocked a shot
attempt. Anthony Young

ALTHA, JANUARY 7--
Before Alabama won their
13th national champi-
onship on the gridiron, both
Wildcats' basketball teams
won on the hardwood last
Thursday night for the first
time this season.
Caleb Chew sank 3 of 4
free throw opportunities in
the final minutes of the
fourth quarter to give the
junior varsity Wildcats (2-
6) a 26-23 win over the
Panthers from John Paul II
(0-6). Chew also had an
assist, a rebound and a
steal in the game.
Tyler McClellan and
Ryan Wood led Altha with
6 points apiece. McClellan
