Local Rotary Club sending "shelter in a


box" to the victims of Haiti earthquake


Members of the Blountstown Rotary Club are reach-
ing out through Rotary International and sending $2000


The Blountstown Tigers battled it out with the
Graceville Tigers Saturday night for the district title.
BHS was edged in overtime, but remains in the play-
offs. Turn to page 6 for all the details.


to send worth of "shelter in a box" to the victims of the
earthquake in Haiti.
Starting as. the brainchild of one Rotarian with the
support of his Rotary club in year 2000 ShelterBox
has grown to become the largest Rotary Club project in
the 100 year history of the organization.
Rotarian support currently contributes an estimated
50% of ShelterBox donations. Around 5,000 rotary
clubs worldwide have supported ShelterBox since it was
launched.
ShelterBox is the only national aid organization that
provides shelter and life-saving equipment. This group
instantly responds to earthquake, volcano, flood, hurri-
cane, cyclone, tsunami or conflict and have helped over
100 disasters in more than 60 countries.
Each box supplies an extended family of up to 10
people with a tent and lifesaving equipment to use while
they are displaced or homeless.
The contents are tailored depending on the nature
and location of the disaster, with great care taken sourc-
ing every item to ensure it is robust enough to be of last-
ing value.
The cost of a box is $1,000 including delivery direct
to those who need it. Each box bears its own unique
number so as a donor you can track your box all the way
to its recipient country via the website.
Highly trained ShelterBox Response Teams distrib-
ute boxes on the ground, working closely with local
organizations, international aid agencies and Rotary
clubs worldwide.

Video Alert!.
The Calhoun County School Board debate on
whether or not to continue the contract of a
$3000 per month lobbyist got pretty heated at
last Tuesday night's meeting.

man out


of $3390
BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
A man serving time in
prison for grand- theft and
forgery has been charged,
along with his wife, for bilk-
ing a Liberty County man
out of $3390.
Timothy
E. McCor-
mick, 27, who
is serving an
18 month sen-
tence at
Okaloosa
Work Camp, T. McCORMICK
and Cristie Lessel
McCormick, 32, of
Hosford, have both been
charged with grand theft
from a person 65 years of
age or older and communi-
cations fraud.
According to the Liberty
County Sheriff's Office, a
man living in the Orange
Community said he
received a phone call last
spring from a man who
identified himself as Ralph,
a close friend. The man told
him he was in Atlanta and
asked if he could help his
daughter, Cristie, while he
was away. Later that day,
Cristie called needing
money and the. calls contin-
ued almost daily with the
man giving her money each
time she,asked.
The man proclaiming to
be Ralph called again a
week later asking for his
continued help until he got
back into town. The calls
from Cristie never stopped
and .her father's friend
doled out the cash as
requested. Another call
from "Ralph" came a week
later, asking for a total on
what his daughter had bor-
rowed. The friend advised
her balance was up to
$1980.
Three days later, Cristie
called and said her father
had lost his job so he
shouldn't call him about
repaying the money. She
assured him she was mak-
ing arrangements with her
mother to repay the loans.
The man said Cristie
continued asking for more
money and even brought
her children over for a visit.
She then told him her
mother was hospitalized
and she needed even more

money for a trip to
Gainesville. The man pos-
ing as Ralph called about
10 days later to thank him
for all he had done and
assured him he would
repay him once he got back
from Gainesville.

The man continued ful-
filling the ongoing requests
for money from Cristie who
came back later in the
month to advise her mother
was sick again and had to
return to Gainesville. At
that point, the amount bor-
rowed was up to $3,390
and the man posing as
Ralph called to say he
would be by the next day to
repay the debt. Instead,
another call from Cristie
came asking for more
money and the man finally
cut her off. He said Cristie
then confessed that her
father knew nothing about
the money, but she would


repay him.
The man tracked down
his friend, the real "Ralph",
and told him Cristie had
someone posing as him to
get him to give her money.
Ralph told him to do what-
ever he needed to do, but
he was not able to repay
the money she had gotten
from him.

Cristie met with Liberty
County authorities in
December and reportedly
admitted to having her hus-
band pose as her dad and
call his friend so he would
give her money.
After the investigation
was complete, Cristie was
arrested Feb. 9 and booked
into the Liberty County
Jail. She posted bond the
following day. Her husband
remains in custody at the
Okaloosa Work Camp
where he has been incar-
cerated since September.

'The Hurt Locker' earns

McGraw's highest rating
Nominated for nine Academy Awards including Best
Picture, director Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker is a
gripping, powerful tale of an American bomb squad in
.Iraq.
When the leader of the Bravo Company of .the bomb
squad is killed by an explosion, a cocky, fearless rebel
named Sergeant William James (Jeremy Renner) is sent in
to take over. Immediately, James does not get along with
his team (Anthony Mackie and Brian Geraghty), leading
to some tense situations between the men as they try to
dismantle bombs and survive their tour of duty.
The film is incredibly well-made in all aspects. Kathryn
Bigelow, the ex-wife of rival Best Director nominee James
Cameron (Avatar), has done a truly phenomenal job of
directing this film. She has taken on a completely male-
dominated genre and defeated the boys at their own game,
crafted easily the best film thus far about the Middle East
conflict. The frontrunner to win the Oscar, the 58-year-old
Bigelow is only the third woman ever to be nominated for
the honor. Her job was made easier by gifted screenwriter
Mark Boal, a veteran of the Iraq War who also wrote the
2007 film In the Valley ofElah. The film does not attempt
to make a political statement of any sort, making it rather
refreshing, though politically charged war films certainly
have their place as well. For SFC James, war is a drug (a
character states this at one point), and the movie neither
advocates nor condemns this.
The cast, composed largely of relative unknowns, is
incredible. In the lead role, Best Actor nominee Renner
gives one of the best performances of the year. Mackie (8
Mile) and Geraghty (Jarhead) are also excellent. Each of
the men brings a distinct,, interesting personality to their
character, and as a result, the characters are most definite-
ly not one-dimensional meathead stereotypes.
The film features famed actors such as Ralph Fiennes
(Voldemort in the Harry Potter movies), Guy Pearce
(Memento), David Morse (The Green Mile), and
Evangeline Lilly (TV's Lost) in small roles, lending the
spotlight more to the up-and-coming young actors. Jeremy
Renner in particular-likely has.an extremely bright future.
Overall, The Hurt Locker is an extremely intense and
rewarding experience that is completely worthy of its Best
Picture nomination. A blast of fresh air in a genre that has
grown stagnant over the past decade, it is one of the best
war films in years, and certainly one of the most entertain-
ing. Do yourself a favor and watch it. You will not regret it.

Lady Tigers shutout Wewa, 14-0,


in opener; travel to Malone Friday


BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor

The Blountstown Lady
Tigers are back on the dia-
mond as softball season is
officially underway.
The girls opened with a
road trip to Wewa
Thursday and brought
home a 14-0 win in five
innings.
Brittany Griffin was on
the mound for BHS, strik-
ing out nine, walking one,
and allowing only two hits.
Griffin was also on fire at
the plate, chalking up a
double, two singles and a
walk. Brittany Brown had


a homerun and a single.
Amber Burch added a dou-
ble. Lyndsey Doyal offered
two singles. Ann Marie
Silcox, Genny Starr,
Montoya Garrett and Anna
Kelley each chipped in a
single.
"Wewa has lost a lot of
good athletes in the last two
years," BHS Coach Bubba
Johnson remarks. "They're
young and have a lot of
freshmen playing, and have
a new coach. But I thought
our girls played pretty well
for the first game. I think
we made only one error
and Brittany pitched well.
But we've got to get a lot


better since we're in a
tougher district."
The Lady Tigers are
joined by Sneads,
Cottondale, Bozeman,
South Walton, Graceville,
Holmes County and
Vernon in their district
which will make for some
serious competition this
season.
The girls hosted Malone
Monday and traveled to
Graceville Tuesday for
their first district game
(details unavailable at
press time). They will be at
Malone Friday for a
J.V./varsity doubleheader
starting at 4 p.m.

High utility bill questioned
Dear Editor,
I'm writing in regards to these outrageous light bills.
First to be known I am a hard working mom of two and
I'm very independent and don't' ask for hand outs. I just
don't feel it's fair to pay a bill that is not justified by accu-
rate figuring. I received my light bill this month for
January reading in the amount of $332.96 with usage of
1955 kwts. I am an energy saver. I cut my lights off that
I'm not using, I cut central heat and air off when we get up
and get clothed. I cut off the breakers for the stove, hot
water heater and dryer every day, sometimes never cut on
if I'm working days in a row. Last month my light bill was
$184.34 with 908 kwt's used. I did the same energy sav-
ing techniques and I worked less in December than I did

in January so I was only home half the time. Therefore
nothing was on at the house but the refrigerator and TV
plugged in the socket.
With this said, how in the world could I have used an
extra 1000 kwts of energy in January and I was home half
the time and cut every breaker off except refrigerator and
(1) TV socket? Are we struggling as a city financially that
we have to double some, even triple people's light bills? A
memo would have helped prepare us for this. An expla-
nation in figuring up the amount of the light bill would
have at least made me feel that someone wasn't lying. We
are working people struggling in this recession, don't make
it worse on us, when you can just ask the people of this
city to help if money is what is needed. Send a memo next

We lost our precious treasure at a place we felt at
home. When our mother passed the nurses and-staff that
had helped mama cried with us! What a treasure we
Calhoun-Liberty countians have in our hospital.
Thank you, Mr. Gillard and staff, at our hospital for
.making a "home-going for our Mother and her family" a
time to remember with a good feeling.

Teacher Feature
by Clint Coley
As a career advisor and
transition specialist for
Calhoun County Schools,
Mrs. Loraine McClellan
has helped many students
find the right college and
career of their dreams. She
may be one of the shortest
teachers at BHS, but her
patience and pertinence
reaches great measures.
. Born and raised in
Blountstown, Florida, Mrs.
McClellan has been help-
ing students one at a time
for nearly twenty-three
years. She is a very social,
not to mention outgoing
person, who enjoys working
with people. After graduat-
ing in 1982 from
Blountstown High School
she attended Chipola
College for two years and
earned an AA degree. She
transferred to Florida State
University where she
earned a BS degree in
Education. She married
her high school sweet-heart
Hiram McClellan ,an,.4 as
two sons, Jay and Tyler.
Jay is 22 and'will graduate
from Florida State in May
with a degree in Business
Administration. Tyler is 18
and will also graduate this
year from Blountstown
High School. Mrs.
McClellan enjoys attending
Rivertown Community
Church, traveling with her
husband, and spending
quality time with her boys.
Her favorite book is
Redeeming Love by
Francine Rivers.
All in all after she has
helped so many students
with life and career choices
one of her life goals is to
work with the American
Red Cross. It-is amazing
how one small individual
can make such a huge
impact.

Teacher Feature
by Clint Coley
As a career advisor and
transition specialist for
Calhoun County Schools,
Mrs. Loraine McClellan
has helped many students
find the right college and
career of their dreams. She
may be one of the shortest
teachers at BHS, but her
patience and pertinence
reaches great measures.
Born and raised in
Blountstown, Florida, Mrs.
McClellan has been help-
ing students one at a time
for nearly twenty-three
years. She is a very social,
not to mention outgoing
person, who enjoys working
with people. After graduat-
ing in 1982 from
Blountstown High School
she attended Chipola
College for two years and
earned an AA degree. She
transferred to Florida State
University where she
earned a BS degree in
Education. She married
her high school sweet-heart
Hiram McClellan and has
two sons, Jay and Tyler.
Jay is 22 and will graduate
from Florida State in May
with a degree in Business
Administration. Tyler is 18
and will also graduate this
year from Blountstown
High School. Mrs.
McClellan enjoys attending
Rivertown Community
Church, traveling with her
husband, and spending
quality time with her boys.
Her favorite book is
Redeeming Love by
Francine Rivers.
All in all after she has
helped so many students
with life and career choices
one of her life goals is to
work with the American
Red Cross. It is amazing
how one small individual
can make such a huge
impact.

Famous Girl Scout Cookies


are here, watch for booths


The much anticipated
Girl Scout Cookies have

their pre-ordered cookies.
Beginning Saturday,
February 20, local resi-

iar cookie booths outside
participating stores around
the community. Girls will
continue to sell cookies
through the end of this

skills to girls. The girl
Scout Cookie Sale is the
number one literacy pro-
gram for girls. By selling
cookies, girls are able to
realize their full potential
and become strong, confi-
dent, and resourceful citi-
zens. Many successful
business women today say
that they got their start in
the business world by sell-
ing Girl Scout Cookies.
"I cannot think of a bet-
ter confidence builder for a
young girl than to be
required to got door to door
and have to introduce your-
self and talk about the
cookie program to every-
one you meet," said Paige
Carter-Smith of
Governance Services. "I
realize years later how
much that experience real-
ly helped me understand
the importance of express-
ing yourself and what you
believe very clearly; that is
a skill I use in business as a
governmental consultant
every day."
This year's cookie line
includes the all-time
favorites: Thin Mints,
Samoas, and Tagalongs;
Do-Si-Dos, Trefoils and
Lemon Chalet Cremes are
also available.


New to the cookie lime
up this year is the Thank U
Berry Munch cookie. This
new cookie has premium
cranberries that provide a
sweet tartness which nicely
accompanies the creamy
white fudge chips. With
zero transfat and no hydro-
genated oils, this cookie sis
sure to be a fast seller.
"The cookie product pro-
vides the girls with an
opportunity to learn busi-
ness skills including cus-
tomer service, budgeting
and planning,: said Raslean
M. Allen, CEO of the Girl
Scout Council of the
Florida Panhandle.
"Through the Gifts of

action through service proj-
ects that directly benefit
others, giving customers
the option to purchase

BHS loses to Graceville in overtime


Tigers runners up in district;


will face Pensacola Christian


BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor

Tiger fans were on the
edge of their seats Saturday
night for one of the most
exciting playoff games ever
played in the BHS gym.
The Tigers made it to the
district championship game
against Graceville that
wound up in overtime.
When the final buzzer
sounded, Graceville came
out on top, 57-53.
Earlier in the week, the
Tigers defeated Bonifay in
the first round, 48-45. Leon
Broxton led that game with
30 points. Next up was
Cottondale with the Tigers
taking a 60-55 win. PJ.
Buggs was the high scorer
for BHS, bringing in 16
points.
The win over
Cottondale secured the
Tigers a spot in the district
championship where they
met Graceville on the
court. After battling four
quarters, the game was tied
and went into overtime.
The Tigers fought hard, but
Graceville took the lead
and wound up clinching the
title.
"We played a good
game, just didn't quite fin-
ish," says BHS Coach Tony
Davis. "We missed too
many free throws we were
six for 17 from the free
throw line."
Broxton led BHS with
21 points, followed by Paul
Mosley with 12.

second quarter of last
Tuesday night's semifinal
district tournament game
at John Paul II kept the
Wildcats (7-12; 5-7, Class
1A District 2) from a possi-


ble upset bid of the top-
seeded Malone Tigers.
Down by only a point,
14-13, after the first quar-
ter, the Wildcats netted
only 2 of 8 field goals in the
second quarter for a total of
4 points and they were 0-
for-3 from beyond the arc.
Conversely, Malone sank
4-of-5 field goals to take a
30-17 lead into the locker
room and they ended the
Wildcats' season with a 61-
46 win.
Tyler Hamilton led the
offensive charge for the
Wildcats with a 21-point
effort along with 5
rebounds and a steal. Will


Rogers racked up 15 points
(including 3 3-pointers).
He had 2 assists and
grabbed a rebound. Jacob
Warner sank 7 points
pulled down a rebound and
nabbed a steal. Ethan Ellis
ended his basketball career
by contributing 3 points as
well as 2 assists, a rebound
and a steal.
The Wildcats hope only
the best for their four sen-
iors: Ethan Ellis, Brett
Floyd, Carl Mantecon and
Terry Wyllie. With four
varsity starters returning
next year, Altha fans are
already anticipating next
season.

Lady Tigers shutout Wewa, 14-0,


in opener; travel to Malone Friday


BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor

The Blountstown Lady
Tigers are back on the dia-
mond as softball season is
officially underway.
The girls opened with a
road trip to Wewa
Thursday and brought
home a 14-0 win in five
innings.
Brittany Griffin was on
the mound for BHS, strik-
ing out nine, walking one,
and allowing only two hits.
Griffin was also on fire at
the plate, chalking up a
double, two singles and a
walk. Brittany Brown had


a homerun and a single.
Amber Burch added a dou-
ble. Lyndsey Doyal offered
two singles. Ann Marie
Silcox, Genny Starr,
Montoya Garrett and Anna
Kelley each chipped in a
single.
"Wewa has lost a lot of
good athletes in the last two
years," BHS Coach Bubba
Johnson remarks. "They're
young and have a lot of
freshmen playing, and have
a new coach. But I thought
our girls played pretty well
for the first game. I think
we made only one error
and Brittany pitched well.
But we've got to get a lot


better since we're in a
tougher district."
The Lady Tigers are
joined by Sneads,
Cottondale, Bozeman,
South Walton, Graceville,
Holmes County and
Vernon in their district
which will make for some
serious competition this
season.
The girls hosted Malone
Monday and traveled to
Graceville Tuesday for
their first district game
(details unavailable at
press time). They will be at
Malone Friday for a
J.V./varsity doubleheader
starting at 4 p.m.

The weekend will begin
Friday, April 30, with
Evensong at 5:30 pm fol-
lowed by a lecture at 6:30

bay-view mansion owned

inal house, featuring high
ceilings and tall dormer

gabled tower, added in
1999, emphasizes the
Second Empire style. The
bright, airy rooms display
family antiques, colorful art
and stylish furnishings.

: Movie MomEnT:

* by Mflatt McGraw
000000000000000

The Hurt Locker' earns

McGraw's highest rating
Nominated for nine Academy Awards including Best
Picture, director Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker is a
gripping, powerful tale of an American bomb squad in
Iraq.
When the leader of the Bravo Company of the bomb
squad is killed by an explosion, a cocky, fearless rebel
named Sergeant William James (Jeremy Renner) is sent in
to take over. Immediately, James does not get along with
his team (Anthony Mackie and Brian Geraghty), leading
to some tense situations between the men as they try to
dismantle bombs and survive their tour of duty.
The film is incredibly well-made in all aspects. Kathryn
Bigelow, the ex-wife of rival Best Director nominee James
Cameron (Avatar), has done a truly phenomenal job of
directing this film. She has taken on a completely male-
dominated genre and defeated the boys at their own game,
crafted easily the best film thus far about the Middle East
conflict. The frontrunner to win the Oscar, the 58-year-old
Bigelow is only the third woman ever to be nominated for
the honor. Her job was made easier by gifted screenwriter
Mark Boal, a veteran of the Iraq War who also wrote the
2007 film In the Valley of Elah. The film does not attempt
to make a political statement of any sort, making it rather
refreshing, though politically charged war films certainly
have their place as well. For SFC James, war is a drug (a
character states this at one point), and the movie neither
advocates nor condemns this.
The cast, composed largely of relative unknowns, is
incredible. In the lead role, Best Actor nominee Renner
gives one of the best performances of the year. Mackie (8
Mile) and Geraghty (Jarhead) are also excellent. Each of
the men brings a distinct, interesting personality to their
character, and as a result, the characters are most definite-
ly not one-dimensional meathead stereotypes.
The film features famed actors such as Ralph Fiennes
(Voldemort in the Harry Potter movies), Guy Pearce
(Memento), David Morse (The Green Mile), and
Evangeline Lilly (TV's Lost) in small roles, lending the
spotlight more to the up-and-coming young actors. Jeremy
Renner in particular likely has an extremely bright future.
Overall, The Hurt Locker is an extremely intense and
rewarding experience that is completely worthy of its Best
Picture nomination. A blast of fresh air in a genre that has
grown stagnant over the past decade, it is one of the best
war films in years, and certainly one of the most entertain-
ing. Do yourself a favor and watch it. You will not regret it.

Somehow, largely through the Grace of God, devoted loyalty, and
the vast pride on the part of many people, The County Record has
never missed an issue.


money for a trip to
Gainesville. The man pos-
ing as Ralph called about
10 days later to thank him
for all he had done and
assured him he would
repay him once he got back
from Gainesville.

The man continued ful-
filling the ongoing requests
for money from Cristie who
came back later in the
month to advise her mother
was sick again and had to
return to Gainesville. At
that point, the amount bor-
rowed was up to $3,390
and the man posing as
Ralph called to say he
would be by the next day to
repay the debt. Instead,
another call from Cristie
came asking for more
money and the man finally
cut her off. He said Cristie
then confessed that her
father knew nothing about
the money, but she would


repay him.
The man tracked down
his friend, the real "Ralph",
and told him Cristie had
someone posing as him to
get him to give her money.
Ralph told him to do what-
ever he needed to do, but
he was not able to repay
the money she had gotten
from him.

Cristie met with Liberty
County authorities in
December and reportedly
admitted to having her hus-
band pose as her dad and
call his friend so he would
give her money.
After the investigation
was complete, Cristie was
arrested Feb. 9 and booked
into the Liberty County
Jail. She posted bond the
following day. Her husband
remains in custody at the
Okaloosa Work Camp
where he has been incar-
cerated since September.

High utility bill questioned
Dear Editor,
I'm writing in regards to these outrageous light bills.
First to be known I am a hard working mom of two and
I'm very independent and don't ask for hand outs. I just
don't feel it's fair to pay a bill that is not justified by accu-
rate figuring. I received my light bill this month for
January reading in the amount of $332.96 with usage of
1955 kwts. I am an energy saver. I cut my lights off that
I'm not using, I cut central heat and air off when we get up
and get clothed. I cut off the breakers for the stove, hot
water heater and dryer every day, sometimes never cut on
if I'm working days in a row. Last month my light bill was
$184.34 with 908 kwt's used. I did the same energy sav-
ing techniques and I worked less in December than I did

With this said, how in the world could I have used an

we have to double some, even triple people's light bills? A

To the Editor:
I wanted to extend a heartfelt thank you to the gentle-
man and lady sitting in the corner booth at Pizza Hut in
Blountstown on the evening of Feb. 14, 2010. Paying for
the meals of 10 people in my party was beyond generous.
Please accept this word of gratitude and may you be
blessed for such a sacrifice.
Sincerely,

Family touched by hospital
Letter to the Editor,
We all have our treasures that we hold dear and always
want near us. We carried our mother (our treasure) to
Calhoun-Liberty Hospital on January 16, 2010 where we
stayed until February 5, 2010.
The staff treated "our" mother as if she was the "Queen
of England". They cared for her tender hands as if she

next month
The U.S. Census Bureau
has issued a call to action for
every resident of our nation:
"Be Counted." Here in
Calhoun County, local
Census Liaison Kristy Terry
urges everyone to complete
and mail back their ques-
tionnaires upon receipt.
They will be mailed out in
March. Households that do
not respond may receive a
replacement questionnaire
in early April. Census tak-
ers will visit households that
do not return questionnaires
to take a count in person.
The 2010 Census is
important. It determines

lion annually of government
funding for critical commu-
nity services and generates
thousands of jobs across the
country.

was their own mom. Our family was there day and night.
They never asked us to leave no matter how many people
were in the room. We had meals brought out to the lobby
by friends and family where 20 or more would eat. We
were never asked not to do this.
We lost our precious treasure at a place we felt at
home. When our mother passed the nurses and staff that
had helped mama cried with us! What a treasure we
Calhoun-Liberty countians have in our hospital.
Thank you, Mr. Gillard and staff, at our hospital for
making a "home-going for our Mother and her family" a
time to remember with a good feeling.

A Blountstown man
being sought for peeping
into a woman's windows
was found in possession
of crack cocaine.
Blountstown Police
Department Inv.
Timothy Partridge and
Ofc. Gary McGee
stopped Talris Brown on
his bike last Wednesday
night about a report of
him looking in a local
woman's windows.
When asked to empty
his pockets, Brown
revealed a clear plastic
bag with a white powder
substance and stated it
was crack cocaine. He
gave a recorded state-
ment that he had pur-
chased the cocaine from
a guy known as "fat
man" and was going to
exchange it with a
woman for sex. He
alleged he had traded
$50 worth of crack with
the woman earlier in the
day for sex.
Brown was charged
with possession of crack
with intent to distribute
within 1000 feet of a

Local Rotary Club sending "shelter in a


box" to the victims of Haiti earthquake


Members of the Blountstown Rotary Club are reach-
ing out through Rotary International and sending $2000


The Blountstown Tigers baffttled it out with the
Graceville Tigers Saturday night for the district title.
BHS was edged in overtime, but remains in the play-
offs. Turn to page 6 for all the details.


to send worth of "shelter in a box" to the victims of the
earthquake in Haiti.
Starting as the brainchild of one Rotarian with the
support of his Rotary club in year 2000 ShelterBox
has grown to become the largest Rotary Club project in
the 100 year history of the organization.
Rotarian support currently contributes an estimated
50% of ShelterBox donations. Around 5,000 rotary
clubs worldwide have supported ShelterBox since it was
launched.
ShelterBox is the only national aid organization that
provides shelter and life-saving equipment. This group
instantly responds to earthquake, volcano, flood, hurri-
cane, cyclone, tsunami or conflict and have helped over
100 disasters in more than 60 countries.
Each box supplies an extended family of up to 10
people with a tent and lifesaving equipment to use while
they are displaced or homeless.
The contents are tailored depending on the nature
and location of the disaster, with great care taken sourc-
ing every item to ensure it is robust enough to be of last-
ing value.
The cost of a box is $1,000 including delivery direct
to those who need it. Each box bears its own unique
number so as a donor you can track your box all the way
to its recipient country via the website.
Highly trained ShelterBox Response Teams distrib-
ute boxes on the ground, working closely with local
organizations, international aid agencies and Rotary
clubs worldwide.

Video Alert!
The Calhoun County School Board debate on
whether or not to continue the contract of a
$3000 per month lobbyist got pretty heated at
last Tuesday night's meeting.

Couple

man out


of $3390
BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
A man serving time in
prison for grand theft and
forgery has been charged,
along with his wife, for bilk-
ing a Liberty County man
out of $3390.
Timothy
E. McCor-
mick, 27, who
is serving anosa
18 month sen-
tence at '
Work Camp, T. MCCORMICK
and Cristie Lessel
McCormick, 32, of
Hosford, have both been
charged with grand theft
from a person 65 years of
age or older and communi-
cations fraud.
According to the Liberty
County Sheriff's Office, a
man living in the Orange
Community said he
received a phone call last
spring from a man who
identified himself as Ralph,
a close friend. The man told
him he was in Atlanta and
asked if he could help his
daughter, Cristie, while he
was away. Later that day,
Cristie called needing
money and the calls contin-
ued almost daily with the
man giving her money each
time she asked.
The man proclaiming to
be Ralph called again a
week later asking for his
continued help until he got
back into town. The calls
from Cristie never stopped
and her father's friend
doled out the cash as
requested. Another call
from "Ralph" came a week
later, asking for a total on
what his daughter had bor-
rowed. The friend advised
her balance was up to
$1980.
Three days later, Cristie
called and said her father
had lost his job so he
shouldn't call him about
repaying the money. She
assured him she was mak-
ing arrangements with her
mother to repay the loans.
The man said Cristie
continued asking for more
money and even brought
her children over for a visit.
She then told him her
mother was hospitalized
and she needed even more

According to the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office, a man living in the Orange Community said he received a phone call last spring from a man who identified himself as Ralph, a close friend. The man told him he was in Atlanta and asked if he could help his daughter, Cristie, while he was away. Later that day, Cristie called needing money and the calls continued almost daily with the man giving her money each time she asked. The man proclaiming to be Ralph called again a week later asking for his continued help until he got back into town. The calls from Cristie never stopped and her father’s friend doled out the cash as requested. Another call from “Ralph” came a week later, asking for a total on what his daughter had borrowed. The friend advised her balance was up to $1980. Three days later, Cristie called and said her father had lost his job so he shouldn’t call him about repaying the money. She assured him she was making arrangements with her mother to repay the loans. The man said Cristie continued asking for more money and even brought her children over for a visit. She then told him her mother was hospitalized and she needed even more  APPLIANCES  PAINT  LUMBER  BUILDING MATERIALS  TOOLS  FLOOR COVERING & MORE WALDORFF A CE H ARDWAR E 25615 N.

These three teachers earning national certification are Wendy Guilford and Kim Peacock from Blountstown Elementary School and Allyson Howell from Blountstown High School. They join twelve other district national certified teachers: Russell Baggett, Debra Betts, Paulette Bryant, Melody Frye, Alicia Goodman, Marie Granger, Barbara Hathaway, Treva McCroan, Tiffany Nichols, Karen Pitts, Terri Reid, and Tina Smith. National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) is an independent, nonprofit, nonpartisan and nongovernmental organization. It was formed in 1987 to advance the quality of teaching and learning by developing professional standards for accomplished teaching, creating a voluntary system to certify teachers who meet those standards and integrating certified teachers into educational reform efforts. Teachers who achieve National Board Certification have met rigorous standards through intensive study, expert evaluation, self-assessment and peer review. In a congressionally-mandated study, National Board Certification has been recognized by the National Research Council as having a positive impact on student achievement, teacher retention, and professional development. NBPTS offers certificates that cover a variety of subject areas and student developmental levels, and are applicable to more than 95 percent of America’s teachers.

The man posing as Ralph called about 10 days later to thank him for all he had done and assured him he would repay him once he got back from Gainesville. The man continued fulfilling the ongoing requests for money from Cristie who came back later in the month to advise her mother was sick again and had to return to Gainesville. At that point, the amount borrowed was up to $3,390 and the man posing as Ralph called to say he would be by the next day to repay the debt. Instead, another call from Cristie came asking for more money and the man finally cut her off. He said Cristie then confessed that her father knew nothing about the money, but she would repay him. The man tracked down his friend, the real “Ralph”, and told him Cristie had someone posing as him to get him to give her money. Ralph told him to do whatever he needed to do, but he was not able to repay the money she had gotten from him. Cristie met with Liberty County authorities in December and reportedly admitted to having her husband pose as her dad and call his friend so he would give her money. After the investigation was complete, Cristie was arrested Feb. 9 and booked into the Liberty County Jail. She posted bond the following day. Her husband remains in custody at the Okaloosa Work Camp where he has been incarcerated since September.Arrest cont'd Drug Task Force nets arrest for marijuana in Liberty Co.BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News EditorThe Calhoun-Liberty Drug Task Force netted one arrested of an alleged marijuana dealer last Tuesday.

The County Record, FEBRUARY 17, 2010, P P a a g g e e 4 4Nominated for nine Academy Awards including Best Picture, director Kathryn Bigelow’s The Hurt Locker is a gripping, powerful tale of an American bomb squad in Iraq. When the leader of the Bravo Company of the bomb squad is killed by an explosion, a cocky, fearless rebel named Sergeant William James (Jeremy Renner) is sent in to take over. Immediately, James does not get along with his team (Anthony Mackie and Brian Geraghty), leading to some tense situations between the men as they try to dismantle bombs and survive their tour of duty. The film is incredibly well-made in all aspects. Kathryn Bigelow, the ex-wife of rival Best Director nominee James Cameron ( Avatar ), has done a truly phenomenal job of directing this film. She has taken on a completely maledominated genre and defeated the boys at their own game, crafted easily the best film thus far about the Middle East conflict. The frontrunner to win the Oscar, the 58-year-old Bigelow is only the third woman ever to be nominated for the honor. Her job was made easier by gifted screenwriter Mark Boal, a veteran of the Iraq War who also wrote the 2007 film In the Valley of Elah . The film does not attempt to make a political statement of any sort, making it rather refreshing, though politically charged war films certainly have their place as well. For SFC James, war is a drug (a character states this at one point), and the movie neither advocates nor condemns this. The cast, composed largely of relative unknowns, is incredible. In the lead role, Best Actor nominee Renner gives one of the best performances of the year. Mackie ( 8 Mile ) and Geraghty ( Jarhead ) are also excellent. Each of the men brings a distinct, interesting personality to their character, and as a result, the characters are most definitely not one-dimensional meathead stereotypes. The film features famed actors such as Ralph Fiennes (Voldemort in the Harry Potter movies), Guy Pearce (Memento), David Morse ( The Green Mile ), and Evangeline Lilly (TV’s Lost ) in small roles, lending the spotlight more to the up-and-coming young actors. Jeremy Renner in particular likely has an extremely bright future. Overall, The Hurt Locker is an extremely intense and rewarding experience that is completely worthy of its Best Picture nomination. A blast of fresh air in a genre that has grown stagnant over the past decade, it is one of the best war films in years, and certainly one of the most entertaining. Do yourself a favor and watch it. You will not regret it. 5/5 Comments or questions?

TALLAHASSEE, FEBRUARY 9--Missed lay-ups and shots from point blank range in the second quarter of last Tuesday night’s semifinal district tournament game at John Paul II kept the Wildcats (7-12; 5-7, Class 1A District 2) from a possible upset bid of the topseeded Malone Tigers.

The girls opened with a road trip to Wewa Thursday and brought home a 14-0 win in five innings. Brittany Griffin was on the mound for BHS, striking out nine, walking one, and allowing only two hits. Griffin was also on fire at the plate, chalking up a double, two singles and a walk. Brittany Brown had a homerun and a single. Amber Burch added a double. Lyndsey Doyal offered two singles. Ann Marie Silcox, Genny Starr, Montoya Garrett and Anna Kelley each chipped in a single. “Wewa has lost a lot of good athletes in the last two years,” BHS Coach Bubba Johnson remarks. “They’re young and have a lot of freshmen playing, and have a new coach. But I thought our girls played pretty well for the first game. I think we made only one error and Brittany pitched well. But we’ve got to get a lot better since we’re in a tougher district.” The Lady Tigers are joined by Sneads, Cottondale, Bozeman, South Walton, Graceville, Holmes County and Vernon in their district which will make for some serious competition this season. The girls hosted Malone Monday and traveled to Graceville Tuesday for their first district game (details unavailable at press time). They will be at Malone Friday for a J.V./varsity doubleheader starting at 4 p.m.Lady Tigers shutout Wewa, 14-0, in opener; travel to Malone Friday

High utility bill questionedDear Editor, I'm writing in regards to these outrageous light bills. First to be known I am a hard working mom of two and I'm very independent and don't ask for hand outs. I just don't feel it's fair to pay a bill that is not justified by accurate figuring. I received my light bill this month for January reading in the amount of $332.96 with usage of 1955 kwts. I am an energy saver. I cut my lights off that I'm not using, I cut central heat and air off when we get up and get clothed. I cut off the breakers for the stove, hot water heater and dryer every day, sometimes never cut on if I'm working days in a row. Last month my light bill was $184.34 with 908 kwt's used. I did the same energy saving techniques and I worked less in December than I did in January so I was only home half the time. Therefore nothing was on at the house but the refrigerator and TV plugged in the socket. With this said, how in the world could I have used an extra 1000 kwts of energy in January and I was home half the time and cut every breaker off except refrigerator and (1) TV socket? Are we struggling as a city financially that we have to double some, even triple people's light bills? A memo would have helped prepare us for this. An explanation in figuring up the amount of the light bill would have at least made me feel that someone wasn't lying. We are working people struggling in this recession, don't make it worse on us, when you can just ask the people of this city to help if money is what is needed. Send a memo next time. For the people, by the people, spoken in one Missy MusgroveGenerous couple appreciatedTo the Editor: I wanted to extend a heartfelt thank you to the gentleman and lady sitting in the corner booth at Pizza Hut in Blountstown on the evening of Feb. 14, 2010. Paying for the meals of 10 people in my party was beyond generous. Please accept this word of gratitude and may you be blessed for such a sacrifice. Sincerely, Georgia Hosford Hosford, FLFamily touched by hospitalLetter to the Editor, We all have our treasures that we hold dear and always want near us. We carried our mother (our treasure) to Calhoun-Liberty Hospital on January 16, 2010 where we stayed until February 5, 2010. The staff treated "our" mother as if she was the "Queen of England". They cared for her tender hands as if she was their own mom. Our family was there day and night. They never asked us to leave no matter how many people were in the room. We had meals brought out to the lobby by friends and family where 20 or more would eat. We were never asked not to do this. We lost our precious treasure at a place we felt at home. When our mother passed the nurses and staff that had helped mama cried with us! What a treasure we Calhoun-Liberty countians have in our hospital. Thank you, Mr. Gillard and staff, at our hospital for making a "home-going for our Mother and her family" a time to remember with a good feeling.

National FCCLA Week By Cortney Harris February 7-13 is National FCCLA week. The theme for this year is “Grasp Greatness.” This Year FCCLA will be celebrating its 65th year anniversary. One of this years National FCCLA week’s projects was to write a letter to our local newspaper explaining why Family and Consumer Sciences education and FCCLA are vital elements of a students preparation for life. FCCLA is the only national organization with family as its main focus. Students learn parenting skills, culinary skills, leadership skills, and many more that teens and adults will use for the rest of their life. So be part of it and help us celebrate FCCLA’s 65th year anniversary. Cats' Cuisine The Institute of Culinary Arts invites the public to Cats' Cuisine on Thursday February 25.

The school was visited by a native of Haiti, Junior Jovin, and a worker, Natasha Taylor, who was actually in Haiti when the earthquake hit. These two young people gave a slide presentation of Haiti and Taylor shared her experience of being in a car when the earthquake struck and about living outside for two weeks after the disaster. A check was presented to the Character Council of Northwest Florida to forward to those in need in Haiti. Thanks, Carr School, for being so generous!

The class has earned over 1325 points and their average percent correct is 91.5.Teacher Feature by Clint Coley As a career advisor and transition specialist for Calhoun County Schools, Mrs. Loraine McClellan has helped many students find the right college and career of their dreams. She may be one of the shortest teachers at BHS, but her patience and pertinence reaches great measures. Born and raised in Blountstown, Florida, Mrs. McClellan has been helping students one at a time for nearly twenty-three years. She is a very social, not to mention outgoing person, who enjoys working with people. After graduating in 1982 from Blountstown High School she attended Chipola College for two years and earned an AA degree. She transferred to Florida State University where she earned a BS degree in Education. She married her high school sweet-heart Hiram McClellan and has two sons, Jay and Tyler. Jay is 22 and will graduate from Florida State in May with a degree in Business Administration. Tyler is 18 and will also graduate this year from Blountstown High School. Mrs. McClellan enjoys attending Rivertown Community Church, traveling with her husband, and spending quality time with her boys. Her favorite book is Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. All in all after she has helped so many students with life and career choices one of her life goals is to work with the American Red Cross. It is amazing how one small individual can make such a huge impact.
