Irvin and Sherill Janney
moved to Calhoun County
from Daytona 20 years ago
to be near the 750 acie pen
where their 21 foxhounds
engage in a long standing
Florida tradition: foxhunt-
ing. However, that sport
may soon be ending for
good in the Sunshine State.
The, Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission '(FWC) voted
last Vednesday to tem-
porarily prohibit the chasing
of foxes and coyotes in
enclosures, while moving
forward'to draft rules guid-
ing such enclosures in
Florida. An executive order
prohibiting chasing of foxes


and coyotes within an enclo-
sure was set to be issued by
today.
"Sandsifter's Fox Pen
has been holding field trials
for 25 years," said Sherill
Janney. "These fox trials
bring in thousands of dol-
lars."
Fox hunting, a'sport that
goes back to the days of
George Washington, is
something the Janneys and
many of their neighbors
who moved here to be near
the pen, have enjoyed for
many years. Those on the
other side of the issue report
"cruelty" and "mauling" of
the animals. Next week,
we'll take a closer look at
this issue and plans for
stakeholder meetings with
the FWC.

Blountstown native Crista Capps Wright...


Named "Teacher of the



Year" in Alachua County


BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor

Blountstown native
Crista Capps Wright has
been named Teacher of the
Year for Alachua County.
Crista was among 40
school winners in the
Gainesville area and went
on to win the overall
Alachua County award
during a recent ceremony.
Folks in Blountstown
well remember this young
lady who is the daughter of
Roger and Tami Capps.
She was an enthusiastic girl
growing up in Calhoun
County and has carried
that passion for success
with her to Alachua
County.,
"''She's more than just a
math teacher. She is a


mother-figure," said one of
her students at Eastside
High School, Andre Sorrell.
"She teaches more than
just equations and prob-
lems. She teaches life les-
sons that I never thought
I'd ever learn or use. As a
senior in high school I've
come into contact with a lot
of teachers. Some good,
some better than others.
But this teacher...she's
extraordinary."
During her acceptance
speech, Crista described
the teachers in the Alachua
County Public School
System as "fierce and com-
passionate, driven and flex-
ible, educated and life-long
learners. We scream at
sporting events, clap at
awards ceremonies, laugh
with our students in the


halls, and somehow man-
age to be at three parent
conferences at once!"
Wright is dedicated to
preparing her students for
the real world.
"The chances in 20
years that any of my former
students will remember
how to solve a system using
linear elimination is pretty
slim," she remarked. "But
I hope that my kids will
remember to read the fine
print before they sign any-
thing, to calculate the actu-
al cost of buying something
on credit, to listen to the
logical side of their brain,
and to try not to do any-
thing stupid. People say
that kids these days need
good teachers ... but truth-
fully, good teachers are a
product of great students."


remarkable leadership for
the last four years that has
garnered the recent well
deserved recognition.
The hospital almost
closed four years ago, after
being operated by. a for-
profit company for several
years. Mr. Williams simply
refused to allow the hospi-
tal to die and instead, led it
on a truly remarkable jour-
ney to an amazing turn-
around.
Convincing a staff that
had not been paid in sever-
al pay periods to stay on
board. They now take great
pride in their hospital and
have even more respect
and admiration for their
Chairman, "Mr. Laddie" as
he is affectionately known
by all staff members.

It is now a thriving hos-
pital, with a sound financial
footing, enjoying a renewed
respect and even more
importantly, significantly
increased utilization by the
citizens of the two counties
it serves.
He helped secure finan-
cial assistance. Virtually all
the aged, outdated equip-
ment was upgraded. He
worked with elected offi-
cials at the local, state, and
federal levels, to assure the
hospital remained open.
Mr. Williams, quite
humbly and as expected,
gave full credit for the
remarkable turnaround of
the hospital and this presti-
gious personal recognition,
to his fellow board mem-
bers, the hospital staff, the
medical staff, the commu-
nity, the elected officials,
and to the Good Lord.

Modern Healthcare is a
national magazine, pub-
lished weekly and is widely
considered the most influ-
ential periodical in the hos-
pital management arena.


Its annual Trustee of the
Year award is given in two
categories, one for hospitals
with 250 beds or more and


those with less than 250
beds. Calhoun-Liberty
Hospital is a 25 bed,
Critical Access Hospital.

Downtown

Farmers


Market to


open on

March 6
Blountstown Main
Street is proud to sponsor
the downtown farmers mar-
ket featuring fresh produce,
home baked items, hand-
made crafts, and original
artwork, along with live
entertainment.
The River Valley
Marketplace is open the
first Saturday of every
month, March through
November, from 8 a.m. to
noon in the greenspace next
to Wakulla Bank. The next
market date is Saturday,
Mar. 6.
Previously, the market
was open the first Saturday
of every month, but Main
Street members recently
voted after the suggestion
by vendors to open only the
first Saturday during the
months of March through
November as is common
practice for other markets in
the region (due to cold
weather). In addition, if it's
raining, the market will be
closed.
Booth spaces are free,
but all items sold must be
handmade, homemade, or
fresh grown. Vendors should
bring their own setups such
as tables and tents. There
are limited spaces for truck
sales. Main Street members
would like to create a cohe-
sive look at the market,,so if
you choose to have a tent at
your booth, please make it
white or tan (cover it with a
sheet if you have a different
color tent).
Contact Kelli at 674-

space!

Never A Dull Moment

by J.I. Newsome




J.K. embarks on quest



to run 10K by his 50th


I marked my calendar. I
had been to an eye doctor
on 23rd street to order
some safety glasses. When
I came out, I noticed I was
next door to that big new
Goodwill store. Knowing I
needed to pick up a
Valentine's gift for Nancy, I
should go over there and
get it done. (I know, big
spender right.)
I found exactly what I
was looking for, a picture
frame for two of my favorite
shots from Christmas, one
of the grandchild, one of me
and our three boys laugh-
ing. The frame was made
out of metal, the picture
part is two sided and is sus-
pended from an arch so you
can turn and have whichev-
er picture you are in the
mood for showing. I
approached the lady to pay,
she looked up at me after
reading the price tag, then
it happened, that moment
that I knew was coming.
I had a similar experi-
ence in the past. There
was this young lady that
was becoming a regular
customer of mine, she liked
to come out and chit chat as
I worked. We had build up
a rapport over maybe a
year. One day she said she
needed to ask me a ques-
tion.
I said, "Okay, shoot."
"Are you married?"
I'm only human. As my
head swelled, several
human type thoughts
appeared in my brain, but,
I mentally shook it off, ( I
am sure while striking a
John Wayne type posture) I
responded that, "Yes, (little
lady), I.am indeed happily
married, (Pilgrim)."


She made that gesture
with her right hand, you
know the one, swinging it in
front of her, snapping a fin-
ger while mouthing the
word, dangg." A sure sign
of utter disappointment. If
possible, my head got even
bigger. "You would be per-
fect for my mother!!"
If only you could have
seen the smirk beaming
from the angel on my right
shoulder as she produced a
needle, and unceremoni-
ously let the hot air out of
my foolish noggin.
I do have a new quest,
and it was not sparked by
what happened at
Goodwill. (I will get back to
that in a minute.) I used to
run a lot. We would go on
weekends and participate
in 5K runs. I was doing 3.5
miles three times a week,
rain or shine. I even spent
two weeks in Chicago in
winter and had to run in
snow. I was working my
way up to participate in a
10k when 'life got in the
way and I just stopped. I
decided to set a new goal a
few years back: I would run
my first 10k as close as pos-
sible to my 50th birthday. I
felt this would be easy and
a logical target. In fact, I
was so confident I could do
it, that I didn't even start


till this January! It. was
obvious that I would have
to drop a few pounds before
running again, or I would
wreck my knees, so I am
proud to say that so far, I
have dropped 25 pounds,
and have started a running
program. Baby steps
though, I have till May of
2011 to achieve this goal.
Have no doubt, I will
achieve it, ask anyone who
is around me daily.....it is
on like Donkey Kong, and
as Zig Ziggler wrote, if it is
a give up goal, such as give
up unhealthy food (and
yes...drink),. tell everyone
who will be supportive, I
hope I can count my read-
ers as such.
Would you believe that
the new cigarette tax was
most of what pushed me to
start?? I do not smoke, but
some folks at work do.
Three of them said when
the tax started, they were
going to quit, which of
course was the stated inten-
tion of the tax. But as most
"sin" taxes go, the outcome
is just more revenue. They
made an effort...for about a
day, then it was back to
driving coffin nails. I would
give them heck, too, "Who
is stronger, you, or that lit-

This year, the Academy
Awards nominated ten-
films for Best Picture. I
have previously reviewed
two in this column (The
Hurt Locker and Up in the
Air), both of which I highly
recommend. I will take a
look at four this week, and
the final four next week.
District 9 is a brilliant
sci-fi epic with a very
thought-provoking, mean-
ingful story. In the film,
aliens known as "prawns"
have landed 'on Earth in
Johannesburg, South
Africa, where they are
placed into slums and treat-
ed as second-class citizens
,(an obvious, yet effective
Apartheid metaphor).
Wikus (Sharlto Copley), a
man in charge of relocating
the prawns to a "camp", is
infected by a mysterious
fluid and slowly begins to
transform into a prawn.
The viewer follows Wikus
as he attempts to reverse
this change that is destroy-
ing his life. Fascinating and
fast-paced, District 9 is per-
haps the 'best sci-fi epic-
since The Empire Strikes
Back. (R)
Inglourious Basterds,
the latest work of famed
writer-director Quentin
Tarhantino, is a stylized, his-
torically loose artistic tri-
umph. In extravagant
detail (and occasionally in
other languages with
English subtitles), the .film
is Tarantino's blood-soaked,
darkly humorous idea of
what could have happened
.once upon a time in Nazi-
occupied France. Leading
a group of violent Jewish-
American soldiers who call
themselves the 'inglourious
basterds' (sic), Lt. Aldo
Raine (Brad Pitt) hatches a


will feature Karen
Zacharias, noted Christian
author. She will be present
at 2:30 PM. to officially
release her latest title, Will
Jesus Buy Me A


plan -to blow up the pre-
miere of a German propa-
ganda film in Paris. What
Raine doesn't know is that
cinema owner and Jewish
refugee Shoshanna
(M6lanie Laurent) has her
own plans to kill the Nazis
at this event. With incredi-
ble performances all
around, particularly from
Laurent and Oscar nomi-
nee Christoph Waltz (as the
eccentric Nazi Col. Hans
Landa) and a razor-sharp
script, this is not a movie
anyone with a strong stom-
ach should miss. (R)
Precious: Based on the
Novel 'Push' by Sapphire is
not for most people.

teacher; yearbook sale


Teacher Feature
by Cory Baldwin
Who is the smallest,
most energetic, always in a
rush, and funniest teacher
at Blountstown High
School (BHS)? Whose
classroom has to almost
always be in perfect order?
Who's the most oblivious,
yet on track teacher at
BHS? That's right Mrs.
Howell. Being in her math
classes over 'the past four
years I have gotten to know
Mrs. Howell, but when
interviewing her I learned
there is more than meets
the eye.
Everyone who has been
in her class believes they
know everything about
Mrs. Howell from the sto-
ries she tells in class. I was
educated on the Mrs.
Howell that isn't shown
completely at school by her
actions or brief tales.
Mrs. Howell's story
starts out here in
Blountstown, Florida
where she grew up. She
dreamed as a child of one
day becoming wealthy and
somewhat famous. She
explained that her favorite
subject in school was you
guessed it, mathematics.
Her ideal occupation was to
be a math teacher. Mrs.
Howell is a former cheer-
leader from BHS and her
school, spirit is still shown.
She graduated from
Blountstown High School
in 1989. Mrs. Howell then
attended many colleges
including: Chipola for two
years earning an Associates
Degree, FSU for four years
earning a BS degree in
Math Education for grades
6th-12th, FAMU earning
her' Masters Degree in
Educational Leadership,
and Troy for her dual
enrollment certification.
She began teaching at
Altha School in 1993. She
taught there for six years
before joining the faculty at
BHS in 1999. She's been
at BHS for the last eleven
years, and is currently an
adjunct instructor at
Chipola College. In the
school year of 2009 Mrs.
Howell earned her
National Board
Certification.


Mrs. Allyson Howell
Mrs. Howell is married
to her high school sweet-
heart, Ray Howell. They
have two children Thomas
and Caroline. She enjoys
attending church every
time the doors are open. In
spare time she carries out
her strong belief and love
for Christ by reading her
favorite book, The Holy
Bible. Her favorite type of
music is anything with a
catchy beat that she can
dance to. She is probably
known as the most athletic
teacher here at BHS. You
are more likely to catch her
running in a local 5k or
teaching a Zumba dance'
class than to find her sitting
at home watching TV.
Although, she does enjoy
watching' her favorite mys-
tery based shows such as,
Castle an ABC television
series. Mrs. Howell is
involved in many school
related functions. She is the
National Honor Society
(NHS) sponsor, and she's
constantly stressed over
Tiger's Growl for
Homecoming, or the NHS
Induction. In the end she
keeps her "cool" and pulls
it all off.
I remember as a fresh-
man she was a whole new
experience. I was not used
to the fast paced teaching
methods. Now I can't see a
day going by without stop-
ping by her classroom to at
least say "Hey". Mrs.
Howell truly has earned
the spotlight and credit she
is given here at BHS and
with recognition as a
National Board Certified


teacher.

the mound. Brittany
Brown relieved her in the

Anna Kelly had three sin-
gles and two runs scored.
Williams,.Starr, and Ambur
Burch all had two hits.
The Lady Tigers took on

batters," Coach Johnson
remarks.
Brown and Williams
each had two hits and two
RBIs for the Tigers. Burch
had a single, two walks, and

', topics I am covering in
class, I know I have been
able to reach them," she
says.
As for the most frustrat-
, ing thing about her job, she
. says with all certainty, the
lack of time. "There are so
many skills and concepts
that need to be covered
during the school year,"
Wendy explains. "I wish I
A had more time to cover a
standard thoroughly before
,; rushing on to the next one."
Finding ways to keep
children focused is always a
challenge, but 'Wendy finds
unique ways to make her
classes interesting. "I am
blessed to teach science
because it naturally lends
itself to fun hands-on activ-
ities," she says. "My stu-


dents love being able to get
out of their seats, work in
small groups, and conduct
scientific investigations."
For those considering a
career in education, Wendy
offers thesd words of
advice:- "Teaching requires
more than knowing your
subject matter. Make sure
you have the compassion
that is required to be truly
concerned about your stu-
dents total welfare."
Being recognized for a
job she truly loves means so
much to Wendy, but she is
quick to point out how
much the BES faculty and
staff work together' to
achieve positive results. "I
am very honored and hum-
. bled to receive this recogni-
tion, but I know that if it


were not for all of the other
teachers working* hard to
prepare the students before
they come to my class, I
' would not be able to be suc-
cessful. The education of a
child requires a team
effort."
Next week, we will

Related Employee of the
Year, Rhonda O'Bryan.

Ten of their runs were

Bontrager, Blackburn, and
Kassie Wood brought in

The Lady Tigers are

butts, signs on the field, and
discount cards with deals at
20 local businesses. See

Movie Moment cont'd-


Depressing, profane, and
disturbing, it tells the story
of Claricee "Precious"
Jones (Oscar nominee
Gabourey Sidibe), an over-
weight African-American
teen in 1980s Harlem,
pregnant with her second
child and the victim of a
truly horrific home life.
She is uneducated, has no
self-esteem, and has 'one of
the cruelest mothers ever to
grace the silver screen
(Oscar nominee
Mo'Nique). I have issues
with this film, notably that
. it is perhaps too relentlessly
downbeat for its own good
and the story could have
used a bit more develop-
ment. It isn't very likable,
and I would really only rec-
ommend it to those who are
specifically interested in
Acting, as Sidibe and
Mo'Nique deliver outstand-
ing performances far
exceeding the script they
were given to work with.
, (R)
I Pixar's Up is the second
animated feature ever nom-


inated for Best Picture, an
honor I don't believe it
deserves.
Likely nominated to
make up for the strange
cold-shoulder the Academy
gave to the far superior
Wall-E last year, Up really
has no idea what it wants to
be. It goes off in multiple
directions, -with too much
childish humor to be a
deep, serious character
study of an old lonely man,
too much seriousness to be
fun for children, and a sub-
plot involving a villain,
which makes little sense.
It's bright, it's shiny, and it
features a few interesting
scenes (the most notable of
which is a lovely silent
sequence detailing the
entire married life of an eld-
erly couple), but unfortu-
nately, it isn't particularly
entertaining and doesn't
focus on any one thing as
much as it should. That
scene, the great musical
score and a cute dog named
Dug are really the only
things I enjoyed. (PG)

Rotary Club donates to BHS choir; Blountstown

Drugs donates $1000 for "shelter box" project

The Blountstown Rotary Club recently contributed $200 to the Blountstown High School
choir program. Janet Edewaard, who teaches choir, presented a program to the Rotary Club
on how students not only learn about music and art in her classes, but also develop char-
acter and confidence. The choir puts on several shows a .year with Edewaard either making
the costumes herself or acquiring them through donations. Anyone interested in assisting the
BHS choir with a donation is urged to contact Edewaard at 674-5724. Support would be
greatly appreciated. In last week's edition, it was noted that the Rotary Club recently donat-
ed $2000 to purchase shelter boxes for homeless people in Haiti. Special thanks to
Blountstown Drugs for providing $1000 of that contribution.





Woman's Club raises funds



with "Sweetheart Auctions"


On Thursday, February
18, the Blountstown
Woman's Club met at the
W.T. Neal Civic Center for
their monthly 'brown bag'
lunch and business meet-
ing. Jessie Mae Price,
President, presided and
welcomed a full house.
Present were two guests
with a total of sixteen
women at -the table,.
Though a relatively small
club in number as com-
pared to some of the larger
city groups in northern
Florida, this local chapter
consists of ladies who are
'pros' in all they do, never
short on enthusiasm and,
'can do, will do, have done'
spirit.
Following the devotional
and pledge of allegiance,--
lunch was in order.
Hostesses, J.P Dunbar and
Gail Wood provided coffee,
tea, nuts, and delicious
mini choco cupcakes with
cherry-on-top. The door
prize was drawn by guest,
Beverly Veress, and low
and behold, Bev drew her
own name! Laughs result-
ed at this stroke of good
luck. An item from the
business agenda bringing


tle white thing?" So smug
in my superiority, chugging
a soda and eatin' a pizza
stick.
Later, I caught a glimpse
of myself in a full length
mirror, unclothed. Dreadful
things those are. Yes, the
eyes are the window of the
soul, but the mirror is the
window to the truth. Like a
train wreck, I could not
look away. What has been
seen, can't be unseen as
they say. My good angel
spoke, "Who is stronger,
you, or that pizza stick?"
Judge not .......
So, as if putting a period
on the undeniable para-

Cake Decorating Classes in
March.
Our initial meeting will
be on ITuesday, March 2, at
6 pm at Altha First Baptist
Church Fellowship Hall. We
will meet four consecutive
weeks to complete the
course. We will discuss
which night will be best for
following meetings at this
first meeting.

or Miriam McIntosh at
merml4@gmail.com as
soon as possible. Course fee
is $50 which will include
Course 2 decorating kit,

tion for four sessions.


sighs of relief consisted of
the fact that the chapter
officers for next year have
been chosen. Jessie Mae
Price will continue to lead
the group, and all were
most pleased that this fair
and just leader would once
again be at the helm.
The group launched into
several Sweetheart
Auctions, the theme of the
day. Members had brought
items from home ranging
from exotic flower vases, to
good books, to lamps,
soaps, and skin lotions, and
apple pie dish. Over 60
items graced the table with
steady and brisk bidding.
With lots of chatter and
fun, these ladies were able
to still remember the true
purpose of their club --
community service and
assistance to needy outside
communities. In less than
thirty minutes, more than
$135 was collected for
service projects. More
recently, this chapter
donated $200 for Haiti
relief.
On Saturday, February
20, eight local members
will attend the annual
District II meeting in


graph, I am paying at the
counter of Goodwill (that it
happened there seems sort
of poignant). The smiling
lady asked me, "Do you
have your card?" Blank
stare back. "Your senior cit-
izen discount card.... Sug."
It must have been some-
thing in my slack jawed
stare that prompted her to
say, "Sorry, I have to
ask.....for folks ON-THE-
BORDER!!!" The devil on
my left shoulder whispered


Chipley. Enjoyed by all,
this gathering totals as
many as 150 to 200 from
the northern Florida area.
Past accomplishments,
future goals, into exchange
and new ideas, all help
make this a a valuable and
energizing event. Each
chapter President will
report on their group's
achievements. Following
lunch, the Arts & Crafts
Festival will be held. All
exhibits have been made
by members of each club
chapter, and they are
diverse in category.
Photography, drawing and
painting in all mediums,
crafts, including woodwork,
sewing and needle work,
fabric craft, doll making,
these are but a few of the
art to be shown. The
Blountstown members will
have six entries to be
judged. J.P Dunbar, Peck
Eldridge, Karen
McClendon, Clara
McCroan, Frances Price,
and Linda Smith have con-
tributed projects.

Market to


open on


March 6
Blountstown Main
Street is proud to sponsor
the downtown farmers mar-
ket featuring fresh produce,
home baked items, hand-
made crafts, and original
artwork, along with live
entertainment.
The River Valley
Marketplace is open the
first Saturday of every
month, March through
November, from 8 a.m. to
noon in the greenspace next
to Wakulla Bank. The next
market date is Saturday,
Mar. 6.
Previously, the market
was open the first Saturday
of every month, but Main
Street members recently
voted after the suggestion
by vendors to open only the
first Saturday during the
months of March through
November as is common
practice for other markets in
the region (due to cold
weather). In addition, if it's
raining, the market will be
closed.
Booth spaces are free,
but all items sold must be
handmade, homemade, or
fresh grown. Vendors should
bring their own setups such
as tables and tents. There
are limited spaces for truck
sales. Main Street members
would like to create a cohe-
sive look at the market, so if
you choose to have a tent at
your booth, please make it
white or tan (cover it with a
sheet if you have a different
color tent).
Contact Kelli at 674-

space!

J.K. embarks on quest



to run 10K by his 50th


I marked my calendar. I
had been to an eye doctor
on 23rd street to order
some safety glasses. When
I came out, I noticed I was
next door to that big new
Goodwill store. Knowing I
needed to pick up a
Valentine's gift for Nancy, I
should go over there and
get it done. (I know, big
spender right.)
I found exactly what I
was looking for, a picture
frame for two of my favorite
shots from Christmas, one
of the grandchild, one of me
and our three boys laugh-
ing. The frame was made
out of metal, the picture
part is two sided and is sus-
pended from an arch so you
can turn and have whichev-
er picture you are in the
mood for showing. I
approached the lady to pay,
she looked up at me after
reading the price tag, then
it happened, that moment
that I knew was coming.
I had a similar experi-
ence in the past. There
was this young lady that
was becoming a regular
customer of mine, she liked
to come out and chit chat as
I worked. We had build up
a rapport over maybe a
year. One day she said she
needed to ask me a ques-
tion.
I said, "Okay, shoot."
"Are you married?"
I'm only human. As my
head swelled, several
human type thoughts
appeared in my brain, but,
I mentally shook it off, ( I
am sure while striking a
John Wayne type posture) I
responded that, "Yes, (little
lady), I am indeed happily
married, (Pilgrim)."


She made that gesture
with her right hand, you
know the one, swinging it in
front of her, snapping a fin-
ger while mouthing the
word, dangg." A sure sign
of utter disappointment. If
possible, my head got even
bigger. "You would be per-
fect for my mother!!"
If only you could have
seen the smirk beaming
from the angel on my right
shoulder as she produced a
needle, and unceremoni-
ously let the hot air out of
my foolish noggin.
I do have a new quest,
and it was not sparked by
what happened at
Goodwill. (I will get back to
that in a minute.) I used to
run a lot. We would go on
weekends and participate
in 5K runs. I was doing 3.5
miles three times a week,
rain or shine. I even spent
two weeks in Chicago in
winter and had to run in
snow. I was working my
way up to participate in a
10k when life got in the
way and I just stopped. I
decided to set a new goal a
few years back: I would run
my first 1 Ok as close as pos-
sible to my 50th birthday. I
felt this would be easy and
a logical target. In fact, I
was so confident I could do
it, that I didn't even start

Blountstown native Crista Capps Wright...


Named "Teacher of the


Year" in Alachua County


BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
Blountstown native
Crista Capps Wright has
been named Teacher of the
Year for Alachua County.
Crista was among 40
school winners in the
Gainesville area and went
on to win the overall
Alachua County award
during a recent ceremony.
Folks in Blountstown
well remember this young
lady who is the daughter of
Roger and Tami Capps.
She was an enthusiastic girl
growing up in Calhoun
County and has carried
that passion for success
with her to Alachua
County.
"She's more than just a
math teacher. She is a


mother-figure," said one of
her students at Eastside
High School, Andre Sorrell.
"She teaches more than
just equations and prob-
lems. She teaches life les-
sons that I never thought
I'd ever learn or use. As a
senior in high school I've
come into contact with a lot
of teachers. Some good,
some better than others.
But this teacher...she's
extraordinary."
During her acceptance
speech, Crista described
the teachers in the Alachua
County Public School
System as "fierce and com-
passionate, driven and flex-
ible, educated and life-long
learners. We scream at
sporting events, clap at
awards ceremonies, laugh
with our students in the


halls, and somehow man-
age to be at three parent
conferences at once!"
Wright is dedicated to
preparing her students for
the real world.
"The chances in 20
years that any of my former
students will remember
how to solve a system using
linear elimination is pretty
slim," she remarked. "But
I hope that my kids will
remember to read the fine
print before they sign any-
thing, to calculate the actu-
al cost of buying something
on credit, to listen to the
logical side of their brain,
and to try not to do any-
thing stupid. People say
that kids these days need
good teachers ... but truth-
fully, good teachers are a
product of great students."


remarkable leadership for
the last four years that has
garnered the recent well
deserved recognition.
The hospital almost
closed four years ago, after
being operated by a for-
profit company for several
years. Mr. Williams simply
refused to allow the hospi-
tal to die and instead, led it
on a truly remarkable jour-
ney to an amazing turn-
around.
Convincing a staff that
had not been paid in sever-
al pay periods to stay on
board. They now take great
pride in their hospital and
have even more respect
and admiration for their
Chairman, "Mr. Laddie" as
he is affectionately known
by all staff members.
It is now a thriving hos-
pital, with a sound financial
footing, enjoying a renewed
respect and even more
importantly, significantly
increased utilization by the
citizens of the two counties
it serves.
He helped secure finan-
cial assistance. Virtually all
the aged, outdated equip-
ment was upgraded. He
worked with elected offi-
cials at the local, state, and
federal levels to assure the
hospital remained open.
Mr. Williams, quite
humbly and as expected,
gave full credit for the
remarkable turnaround of
the hospital and this presti-
gious personal recognition,
to his fellow board mem-
bers, the hospital staff, the
medical staff, the commu-
nity, the elected officials,
and to the Good Lord.

FWC RULING ANGERS HOUND OWNERS


Fox hunt tradition may

soon be over in Florida


BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN
News Editor
Irvin and Sherill Janney
moved to Calhoun County
from Daytona 20 years ago
to be near the 750 acre pen
where their 21 foxhounds
engage in a long standing
Florida tradition: fox hunt-
ing. However, that sport
may soon be ending for
good in the Sunshine State.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) voted
last Wednesday to tem-
porarily prohibit the chasing
of foxes and coyotes in
enclosures, while moving
forward to draft rules guid-
ing such enclosures in
Florida. An executive order
prohibiting chasing of foxes


and coyotes within an enclo-
sure was set to be issued by
today.
"Sandsifter's Fox Pen
has been holding field trials
for 25 years," said Sherill
Janney. "These fox trials
bring in thousands of dol-
lars."
Fox hunting, a sport that
goes back to the days of
George Washington, is
something the Janneys and
many of their neighbors
who moved here to be near
the pen, have enjoyed for
many years. Those on the
other side of the issue report
"cruelty" and "mauling" of
the animals. Next week,
we'll take a closer look at
this issue and plans for
stakeholder meetings with
the FWC.

remarks.
Brown and Williams
each had two hits and two
RBIs for the Tigers. Burch
had a single, two walks, and
three RBIs. Griffin had a
single, two walks, and three
RBIs.
"Defensively, on in-field,


we've been doing good,"

topics I am covering in
class, I know I have been
able to reach them," she
says.
As for the most frustrat-
ing thing about her job, she
says with all certainty, the
lack of time. "There are so
many skills and concepts
that need to be covered
during the school year,"
Wendy explains. "I wish I
had more time to cover a
standard thoroughly before
rushing on to the next one."
Finding ways to keep
children focused is always a
challenge, but Wendy finds
unique ways to make her
classes interesting. "I am
blessed to teach science
because it naturally lends
itself to fun hands-on activ-
ities," she says. "My stu-


dents love being able to get
out of their seats, work in
small groups, and conduct
scientific investigations."
For those considering a
career in education, Wendy
offers these words of
advice: "Teaching requires
more than knowing your
subject matter. Make sure
you have the compassion
that is required to be truly
concerned about your stu-
dents total welfare."
Being recognized for a
job she truly loves means so
much to Wendy, but she is
quick to point out how
much the BES faculty and
staff work together to
achieve positive results. "I
am very honored and hum-
bled to receive this recogni-
tion, but I know that if it


were not for all of the other
teachers working hard to
prepare the students before
they come to my class, I
would not be able to be suc-
cessful. The education of a
child requires a team
effort."

Movie Moment cont'd


Depressing, profane, and
disturbing, it tells the story
of Claricee "Precious"
Jones (Oscar nominee
Gabourey Sidibe), an over-
weight African-American
teen in 1980s Harlem,
pregnant with her second
child and the victim of a
truly horrific home life.
She is uneducated, has no
self-esteem, and has one of
the cruelest mothers ever to
grace the silver screen
(Oscar nominee
Mo'Nique). I have issues
with this film, notably that
it is perhaps too relentlessly
downbeat for its own good
and the story could have
used a bit more develop-
ment. It isn't very likable,
and I would really only rec-
ommend it to those who are
specifically interested in
acting, as Sidibe and
Mo'Nique deliver outstand-
ing performances far
exceeding the script they
were given to work with.
(R)
Pixar's Up is the second
animated feature ever nom-


inated for Best Picture, an
honor I don't believe it
deserves.
Likely nominated to
make up for the strange
cold-shoulder the Academy
gave to the far superior
Wall-E last year, Up really
has no idea what it wants to
be. It goes off in multiple
directions, with too much
childish humor to be a
deep, serious character
study of an old lonely man,
too much seriousness to be
fun for children, and a sub-
plot involving a villain,
which makes little sense.
It's bright, it's shiny, and it
features a few interesting
scenes (the most notable of
which is a lovely silent
sequence detailing the
entire married life of an eld-
erly couple), but unfortu-
nately, it isn't particularly
entertaining and doesn't
focus on any one thing as
much as it should. That
scene, the great musical
score and a cute dog named
Dug are really the only
things I enjoyed. (PG)

Teacher Feature
by Cory Baldwin
Who is the smallest,
most energetic, always in a
rush, and funniest teacher
at Blountstown High
School (BHS)? Whose
classroom has to almost
always be in perfect order?
Who's the most oblivious,
yet on track teacher at
BHS? That's right Mrs.
Howell. Being in her math
classes over the past four
years I have gotten to know
Mrs. Howell, but when
interviewing her I learned
there is more than meets
the eye.
Everyone who has been
in her class believes they
know everything about
Mrs. Howell from the sto-
ries she tells in class. I was
educated on the Mrs.
Howell that isn't shown
completely at school by her
actions or brief tales.
Mrs. Howell's story
starts out here in
Blountstown, Florida
where she grew up. She
dreamed as a child of one
day becoming wealthy and
somewhat famous. She
explained that her favorite
subject in school was you
guessed it, mathematics.
Her ideal occupation was to
be a math teacher. Mrs.
Howell is a former cheer-
leader from BHS and her
school spirit is still shown.
She graduated from
Blountstown High School
in 1989. Mrs. Howell then
attended many colleges
including: Chipola for two
years earning an Associates
Degree, FSU for four years
earning a BS degree in
Math Education for grades
6th-12th, FAMU earning
her Masters Degree in
Educational Leadership,
and Troy for her dual
enrollment certification.
She began teaching at
Altha School in 1993. She
taught there for six years
before joining the faculty at
BHS in 1999. She's been
at BHS for the last eleven
years, and is currently an
adjunct instructor at
Chipola College. In the
school year of 2009 Mrs.
Howell earned her
National Board
Certification.


Mrs. Allyson Howell
Mrs. Howell is married
to her high school sweet-
heart, Ray Howell. They
have two children Thomas
and Caroline. She enjoys
attending church every
time the doors are open. In
spare time she carries out
her strong belief and love
for Christ by reading her
favorite book, The Holy
Bible. Her favorite type of
music is anything with a
catchy beat that she can
dance to. She is probably
known as the most athletic
teacher here at BHS. You
are more likely to catch her
running in a local 5k or
teaching a Zumba dance
class than to find her sitting
at home watching TV.
Although, she does enjoy
watching her favorite mys-
tery based shows such as,
Castle an ABC television
series. Mrs. Howell is
involved in many school
related functions. She is the
National Honor Society
(NHS) sponsor, and she's
constantly stressed over
Tiger's Growl for
Homecoming, or the NHS
Induction. In the end she
keeps her "cool" and pulls
it all off.
I remember as a fresh-
man she was a whole new
experience. I was not used
to the fast paced teaching
methods. Now I can't see a
day going by without stop-
ping by her classroom to at
least say "Hey". Mrs.
Howell truly has earned
the spotlight and credit she
is given here at BHS and
with recognition as a
National Board Certified


teacher.

Brett Tanner wins WFEC



Youth Tour to Washington


West Florida Electric
Cooperative (WFEC)
recently joined other co-ops
from across the state in
Tallahassee for the 2010
State Youth Tour. During
this two-day trip to the
Capitol, local high school
juniors chosen by their
principals and guidance
counselors for excellence,
and whose parents or
guardians are members of
WFEC, visited the IMAX
theatre where they saw the
film "Forces of Nature" and
participated in an electro-
magnetic classroom demon-
stration. Youth Tour partic-
ipants also enjoyed a pri-
vate tour of the Governor's
Mansion.
The students also visited
the Florida House of
Representatives where
they participated in a mock
legislative session, propos-
ing and debating bills. In
addition, students visited
the Supreme Court where
they witnessed oral argu-
ments in a case presented
before the Justices.

Contestants represent-
ing WFEC in Tallahassee
were: Jake Hall, Altha
School; Brett Tanner,
Blountstown High School;
Carly Hartzog, Chipley
High School; Jared Byrd,
Graceville High School;
Ryan Pickwick, Holmes
County High School;
Karlee Floyd, Malone High

Winners were selected for an all-expense paid trip to
Washington, DC, to tour the nation's capitol. They are (from

School, Winner- Brefftt Tanner, Blountstown High School and

Coppedge, Vernon High
School.
WFEC's eleven Youth
Tour contestants competed
for an all-expenses-paid
trip to Washington, D.C,
where they will join other
eleventh grade students
from all over the United
States to tour the nation's
capitol in June. A panel of
three judges from the elec-
tric cooperative industry
interviewed the students
and chose two winners and
an alternate on Thursday,
February 18. The winners
were Brett Tanner,
Blountstown High School
and Jennifer Thompson,
Sneads High School. The
alternate winner was Angel
Rodriguez from Poplar
Springs High School.
The trips to Tallahassee
and Washington, D.C. are
part of the cooperative's


efforts to educate the lead-
ers of tomorrow about how
our state and federal gov-
ernment works. The trips
also help them gain insight
into the roles rural coopera-
tives have played in the his-
tory of our country as well
as their roles in the future
of the electric utility indus-
try.
The Washington, D.C.
Youth Tour Program has
been in existence since
1957 when co-ops sent stu-
dents to Washington, D.C.
to work during the summer.
By 1964, the program
caught on, and the National
Rural Electric Cooperative
Association (NRECA)
began to coordinate the
efforts of the co-ops. Since
then, thousands of young
people have experienced
this opportunity.

'Best Picture' overview


This year, the Academy
Awards nominated ten
films for Best Picture. I
have previously reviewed
two in this column (The
Hurt Locker and Up in the
Air), both of which I highly
recommend. I will take a
look at four this week, and
the final four next week.
District 9 is a brilliant
sci-fi epic with a very
thought-provoking, mean-
ingful story. In the film,
aliens known as "prawns"
have landed on Earth in
Johannesburg, South
Africa, where they are
placed into slums and treat-
ed as second-class citizens
(an obvious, yet effective
Apartheid metaphor).
Wikus (Sharlto Copley), a
man in charge of relocating
the prawns to a "camp", is
infected by a mysterious
fluid and slowly begins to
transform into a prawn.
The viewer follows Wikus
as he attempts to reverse
this change that is destroy-
ing his life. Fascinating and
fast-paced, District 9 is per-
haps the best sci-fi epic
since The Empire Strikes
Back. (R)
Inglourious Basterds,
the latest work of famed
writer-director Quentin
Tarantino, is a stylized, his-
torically loose artistic tri-
umph. In extravagant
detail (and occasionally in
other languages with
English subtitles), the film
is Tarantino's blood-soaked,
darkly humorous idea of
what could have happened
once upon a time in Nazi-
occupied France. Leading
a group of violent Jewish-
American soldiers who call
themselves the 'inglourious
basterds' (sic), Lt. Aldo
Raine (Brad Pitt) hatches a


plan to blow up the pre-
miere of a German propa-
ganda film in Paris. What
Raine doesn't know is that
cinema owner and Jewish
refugee Shoshanna
(M6lanie Laurent) has her
own plans to kill the Nazis
at this event. With incredi-
ble performances all
around, particularly from
Laurent and Oscar nomi-
nee Christoph Waltz (as the
eccentric Nazi Col. Hans
Landa) and a razor-sharp
script, this is not a movie
anyone with a strong stom-
ach should miss. (R)
Precious: Based on the
Novel 'Push' by Sapphire is
not for most people.

Doublewide? (Cause I

enormous honor for the

The library has many
patrons who request books

Karen Zacharias is one of
the most noteworthy.
Zacharias celebrates the
real faith of real people.
Jeff Foxworthy said, I love
a writer that's not afraid to
walk with real people and
speak the truth of their
lives. Keep shining your
light Karen." Wmin. Paul
Young, author of The
Shack said, "Whether you
live in a mansion on a cliff,
a shack by still waters, or in

Rotary Club donates to BHS choir; Blountstown

Drugs donates $1000 for "shelter box" project

The Blountstown Rotary Club recently contributed $200 to the Blountstown High School
choir program. Janet Edewaard, who teaches choir, presented a program to the Rotary Club
on how students not only learn about music and art in her classes, but also develop char-
acter and confidence. The choir puts on several shows a year with Edewaard either making
the costumes herself or acquiring them through donations. Anyone interested in assisting the
BHS choir with a donation is urged to contact Edewaard at 674-5724. Support would be
greatly appreciated. In last week's edition, it was noted that the Rotary Club recently donat-
ed $2000 to purchase shelter boxes for homeless people in Haiti. Special thanks to
Blountstown Drugs for providing $1000 of that contribution.

club in number as com-
pared to some of the larger
city groups in northern
Florida, this local chapter
consists of ladies who are
'pros' in all they do, never
short on enthusiasm and,
'can do, will do, have done'
spirit.
Following the devotional
and pledge of allegiance,
lunch was in order.
Hostesses, J.P Dunbar and
Gail Wood provided coffee,
tea, nuts, and delicious
mini choco cupcakes with
cherry-on-top. The door
prize was drawn by guest,
Beverly Veress, and low
and behold, Bev drew her
own name! Laughs result-
ed at this stroke of good
luck. An item from the
business agenda bringing


sighs of relief consisted of
the fact that the chapter
officers for next year have
been chosen. Jessie Mae
Price will continue to lead
the group, and all were
most pleased that this fair
and just leader would once
again be at the helm.
The group launched into
several Sweetheart
Auctions, the theme of the
day. Members had brought
items from home ranging
from exotic flower vases, to
good books, to lamps,
soaps, and skin lotions, and
apple pie dish. Over 60
items graced the table with
steady and brisk bidding.
With lots of chatter and
fun, these ladies were able
to still remember the true
purpose of their club --
community service and
assistance to needy outside
communities. In less than
thirty minutes, more than
$135 was collected for
service projects. More
recently, this chapter
donated $200 for Haiti
relief.
On Saturday, February
20, eight local members
will attend the annual
District II meeting in


Chipley. Enjoyed by all,
this gathering totals as
many as 150 to 200 from
the northern Florida area.
Past accomplishments,
future goals, into exchange
and new ideas, all help
make this a a valuable and
energizing event. Each
chapter President will
report on their group's
achievements. Following
lunch, the Arts & Crafts
Festival will be held. All
exhibits have been made
by members of each club
chapter, and they are
diverse in category.
Photography, drawing and
painting in all mediums,
crafts, including woodwork,
sewing and needle work,
fabric craft, doll making,
these are but a few of the
art to be shown. The
Blountstown members will
have six entries to be
judged. J.P Dunbar, Peck
Eldridge, Karen
McClendon, Clara
McCroan, Frances Price,
and Linda Smith have con-
tributed projects.

March will feature an
international potluck and
program.

Later, I caught a glimpse
of myself in a full length
mirror, unclothed. Dreadful
things those are. Yes, the
eyes are the window of the
soul, but the mirror is the
window to the truth. Like a
train wreck, I could not
look away. What has been
seen, can't be unseen as
they say. My good angel

happened there seems sort
of poignant). The smiling
lady asked me, "Do you
have your card?" Blank
stare back. "Your senior cit-

It must have been some-
thing in my slack jawed
stare that prompted her to
say, "Sorry, I have to

my left shoulder whispered


in my ear to remind her she

took it in stride, I mean I
did need a shave, and to be
honest, I needed a moment

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News EditorIrvin and Sherill Janney moved to Calhoun County from Daytona 20 years ago to be near the 750 acre pen where their 21 foxhounds engage in a long standing Florida tradition: fox hunting. However, that sport may soon be ending for good in the Sunshine State. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) voted last Wednesday to temporarily prohibit the chasing of foxes and coyotes in enclosures, while moving forward to draft rules guiding such enclosures in Florida. An executive order prohibiting chasing of foxes and coyotes within an enclosure was set to be issued by today. “Sandsifter’s Fox Pen has been holding field trials for 25 years,” said Sherill Janney. “These fox trials bring in thousands of dollars.” Fox hunting, a sport that goes back to the days of George Washington, is something the Janneys and many of their neighbors who moved here to be near the pen, have enjoyed for many years. Those on the other side of the issue report "cruelty" and "mauling" of the animals. Next week, we’ll take a closer look at this issue and plans for stakeholder meetings with the FWC.

Angella Dawn Wade, 38, was arrested Thursday on four counts each of burglary and grand theft. According to the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office, Wade had been performing housekeeping duties for four families, all of whom reported several pieces of jewelry missing over a two month period. Inv. Brian Bateman tracked the items, ranging from diamond rings to gold chains, to a jewelry store in Tallahassee. The store owner confirmed that Wade had sold numerous items to the store in late January that fit the description of the stolen jewelry. Wade was taken into custody Thursday and gave a recorded statement about multiple burglaries over the past few months. In one case, she said she stole jewelry out of a woman’s closet while she was housekeeping. Wade stated the other burglaries occurred when she entered the homes of housekeeping clients while the owners were away during the day or gone to church. Wade remained in custody at the Liberty County Jail at press time.  APPLIANCES  PAINT  LUMBER  BUILDING MATERIALS  TOOLS  FLOOR COVERING & MORE WALDORFF A CE H ARDWAR E 25615 N.

According to the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, a homeowner on Halley Road alerted authorities last Wednesday after spotting a suspicious vehicle on their property. The driver was recognized as Mauldin. Upon being questioned, she said she had just driven to the river. However, a witness reported seeing her leave a house on the property carrying a propane tank. Mauldin and her male passenger left the scene. Capt. Ken Futch searched the house and noted a computer, tent, and sleeping bags were missing, along with a car battery and light. Mauldin and her companion, Steven McDaniel, 29, were tracked down the following morning at a home in Frink where they were taken into custody. McDaniel had active warrants out of Bay and Gulf counties.

It is awesome to see their eyes light up and the smile that comes across their faces when they learn something new.” Every teacher will tell you being an educator is a challenging career with no two days the same.

remarkable leadership for the last four years that has garnered the recent well deserved recognition. The hospital almost closed four years ago, after being operated by a forprofit company for several years. Mr. Williams simply refused to allow the hospital to die and instead, led it on a truly remarkable journey to an amazing turnaround. Convincing a staff that had not been paid in several pay periods to stay on board. They now take great pride in their hospital and have even more respect and admiration for their Chairman, “Mr. Laddie” as he is affectionately known by all staff members. It is now a thriving hospital, with a sound financial footing, enjoying a renewed respect and even more importantly, significantly increased utilization by the citizens of the two counties it serves. He helped secure financial assistance. Virtually all the aged, outdated equipment was upgraded. He worked with elected officials at the local, state, and federal levels to assure the hospital remained open. Mr. Williams, quite humbly and as expected, gave full credit for the remarkable turnaround of the hospital and this prestigious personal recognition, to his fellow board members, the hospital staff, the medical staff, the community, the elected officials, and to the Good Lord.

Blountstown native Crista Capps Wright...Named "Teacher of the Year" in Alachua County Crista Capps Wright, who grew up in Blountstown, is shown being congratulated by her family after being named the Alachua County Teacher of the Year. Pictured are (from left) Tami Capps, Daniel Wright, Crista Wright, Clint Capps, and Roger Capps.BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News Editor Blountstown native Crista Capps Wright has been named Teacher of the Year for Alachua County. Crista was among 40 school winners in the Gainesville area and went on to win the overall Alachua County award during a recent ceremony. Folks in Blountstown well remember this young lady who is the daughter of Roger and Tami Capps. She was an enthusiastic girl growing up in Calhoun County and has carried that passion for success with her to Alachua County. “She’s more than just a math teacher. She is a mother-figure,” said one of her students at Eastside High School, Andre Sorrell. “She teaches more than just equations and problems. She teaches life lessons that I never thought I’d ever learn or use. As a senior in high school I’ve come into contact with a lot of teachers. Some good, some better than others. But this teacher…she’s extraordinary.” During her acceptance speech, Crista described the teachers in the Alachua County Public School System as “fierce and compassionate, driven and flexible, educated and life-long learners. We scream at sporting events, clap at awards ceremonies, laugh with our students in the halls, and somehow manage to be at three parent conferences at once!” Wright is dedicated to preparing her students for the real world. “The chances in 20 years that any of my former students will remember how to solve a system using linear elimination is pretty slim,” she remarked. “But I hope that my kids will remember to read the fine print before they sign anything, to calculate the actual cost of buying something on credit, to listen to the logical side of their brain, and to try not to do anything stupid. People say that kids these days need good teachers … but truthfully, good teachers are a product of great students.” Our store is buzzing with lots of new gift items for Spring New Willow Tree Collectibles Jon Plummer, Pharmacist 20370 Central Ave. West,, Blountstown, FL 850-674-2222 Blountstown DrugsLaddie Williams continued The County Record, FEBRUARY 24, 2010, P P a a g g e e 3 3

I marked my calendar. I had been to an eye doctor on 23rd street to order some safety glasses. When I came out, I noticed I was next door to that big new Goodwill store. Knowing I needed to pick up a Valentine’s gift for Nancy, I should go over there and get it done. (I know, big spender right.) I found exactly what I was looking for, a picture frame for two of my favorite shots from Christmas, one of the grandchild, one of me and our three boys laughing. The frame was made out of metal, the picture part is two sided and is suspended from an arch so you can turn and have whichever picture you are in the mood for showing. I approached the lady to pay, she looked up at me after reading the price tag, then it happened, that moment that I knew was coming. I had a similar experience in the past. There was this young lady that was becoming a regular customer of mine, she liked to come out and chit chat as I worked. We had build up a rapport over maybe a year. One day she said she needed to ask me a question. I said, “Okay, shoot.” “Are you married?” I’m only human. As my head swelled, several human type thoughts appeared in my brain, but, I mentally shook it off, ( I am sure while striking a John Wayne type posture) I responded that, “Yes, (little lady), I am indeed happily married, (Pilgrim).” She made that gesture with her right hand, you know the one, swinging it in front of her, snapping a finger while mouthing the word, “dang.” A sure sign of utter disappointment. If possible, my head got even bigger. “You would be perfect for my mother!!” If only you could have seen the smirk beaming from the angel on my right shoulder as she produced a needle, and unceremoniously let the hot air out of my foolish noggin. I do have a new quest, and it was not sparked by what happened at Goodwill. (I will get back to that in a minute.) I used to run a lot. We would go on weekends and participate in 5K runs. I was doing 3.5 miles three times a week, rain or shine. I even spent two weeks in Chicago in winter and had to run in snow. I was working my way up to participate in a 10k when life got in the way and I just stopped. I decided to set a new goal a few years back: I would run my first 10k as close as possible to my 50th birthday. I felt this would be easy and a logical target. In fact, I was so confident I could do it, that I didn’t even start till this January! It was obvious that I would have to drop a few pounds before running again, or I would wreck my knees, so I am proud to say that so far, I have dropped 25 pounds, and have started a running program. Baby steps though, I have till May of 2011 to achieve this goal. Have no doubt, I will achieve it, ask anyone who is around me daily…..it is on like Donkey Kong, and as Zig Ziggler wrote, if it is a give up goal, such as give up unhealthy food (and yes…drink), tell everyone who will be supportive, I hope I can count my readers as such. Would you believe that the new cigarette tax was most of what pushed me to start?? I do not smoke, but some folks at work do. Three of them said when the tax started, they were going to quit, which of course was the stated intention of the tax. But as most “sin” taxes go, the outcome is just more revenue. They made an effort…for about a day, then it was back to driving coffin nails. I would give them heck, too, “Who is stronger, you, or that lit-The County Record, FEBRUARY 24, 2010, P P a a g g e e 4 4 *$20 per month savings for 6 months for a total of $120 on a FullHouse double-play bundle (Unlimited Phone with unlimited long distance and 8 calling features, or Basic Phone with 120 minutes per month and 3 calling features, plus high-speed Internet service).

The River Valley Marketplace is open the first Saturday of every month, March through November, from 8 a.m. to noon in the greenspace next to Wakulla Bank. The next market date is Saturday, Mar. 6. Previously, the market was open the first Saturday of every month, but Main Street members recently voted after the suggestion by vendors to open only the first Saturday during the months of March through November as is common practice for other markets in the region (due to cold weather). In addition, if it’s raining, the market will be closed. Booth spaces are free, but all items sold must be handmade, homemade, or fresh grown. Vendors should bring their own setups such as tables and tents. There are limited spaces for truck sales. Main Street members would like to create a cohesive look at the market, so if you choose to have a tent at your booth, please make it white or tan (cover it with a sheet if you have a different color tent).

Mayor Winston Deason and the Blountstown City Council have declared March 1, 2010 as the Kitty Wells Family Literacy Day. The day-long celebration will feature Karen Zacharias, noted Christian author. She will be present at 2:30 P .M. to officially release her latest title, Will Jesus Buy Me A Doublewide? (Cause I Need More Room for My Plasma TV) . This is an enormous honor for the Blountstown Public Library. The library has many patrons who request books by Christian authors. Karen Zacharias is one of the most noteworthy. Zacharias celebrates the real faith of real people. Jeff Foxworthy said, "I love a writer that's not afraid to walk with real people and speak the truth of their lives. Keep shining your light Karen." Wm. Paul Young, author of The Shack said, "Whether you live in a mansion on a cliff, a shack by still waters, or in a single-wide on cinder blocks, this a worthy read." Zacharias is also being published in the Washington Post with God's Blessings in Homeless Shelters that includes excerpts from Will Jesus Buy Me A Doublewide? (Cause I Need More Room for My Plasma TV) . The Blountstown Public Library is pleased to host the March 1st event in honor of Mrs. Wells. Many of the "old timers" will remember her as the first Blountstown Branch Librarian. Miss Kitty and her husband, Rodney Bernard (R.B.), dedicated a major portion of their last years to the Blountstown Library and the families it served. It was not unusual to find R.B. lugging in a huge box of books for her. It was not easy to tell Miss Kitty "no" when it came to her library. Miss Kitty believed in education. She was sure that if every child in Blountstown had a book to read that they would succeed in life and that her library would, too. She was so right! The Blountstown Public Library makes a concerted effort to provide titles in genre requested by its readers. You will find a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction subjects in print and electronic formats. If you believe that it is important for your library to have good books for families to read, please join your friends at the Blountstown Public Library March 1st at 2:30 P .M.; light refreshments will be served. Autographed copies of Will Jesus Buy Me A Doublewide? (Cause I Need More Room for My Plasma TV) will be available. You may call 674-5200 for more information. This year, the Academy Awards nominated ten films for Best Picture. I have previously reviewed two in this column ( The Hurt Locker and Up in the Air ), both of which I highly recommend. I will take a look at four this week, and the final four next week. District 9 is a brilliant sci-fi epic with a very thought-provoking, meaningful story. In the film, aliens known as “prawns” have landed on Earth in Johannesburg, South Africa, where they are placed into slums and treated as second-class citizens (an obvious, yet effective Apartheid metaphor). Wikus (Sharlto Copley), a man in charge of relocating the prawns to a “camp”, is infected by a mysterious fluid and slowly begins to transform into a prawn. The viewer follows Wikus as he attempts to reverse this change that is destroying his life. Fascinating and fast-paced, District 9 is perhaps the best sci-fi epic since The Empire Strikes Back. (R) Inglourious Basterds , the latest work of famed writer-director Quentin Tarantino, is a stylized, historically loose artistic triumph. In extravagant detail (and occasionally in other languages with English subtitles), the film is Tarantino’s blood-soaked, darkly humorous idea of what could have happened once upon a time in Nazioccupied France. Leading a group of violent JewishAmerican soldiers who call themselves the ‘inglourious basterds’ (sic), Lt. Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) hatches a plan to blow up the premiere of a German propaganda film in Paris. What Raine doesn’t know is that cinema owner and Jewish refugee Shoshanna (Mélanie Laurent) has her own plans to kill the Nazis at this event. With incredible performances all around, particularly from Laurent and Oscar nominee Christoph Waltz (as the eccentric Nazi Col. Hans Landa) and a razor-sharp script, this is not a movie anyone with a strong stomach should miss. (R) Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire is not for most people.The County Record, FEBRUARY 24, 2010, P P a a g g e e 5 5 B B R R A A G G S S H H O O P P H H a a p p p p y y 2 2 n n d d B B i i r r t t h h d d a a y y ! !

Whose classroom has to almost always be in perfect order? Who’s the most oblivious, yet on track teacher at BHS? That’s right Mrs. Howell. Being in her math classes over the past four years I have gotten to know Mrs. Howell, but when interviewing her I learned there is more than meets the eye. Everyone who has been in her class believes they know everything about Mrs. Howell from the stories she tells in class. I was educated on the Mrs. Howell that isn’t shown completely at school by her actions or brief tales. Mrs. Howell’s story starts out here in Blountstown, Florida where she grew up. She dreamed as a child of one day becoming wealthy and somewhat famous. She explained that her favorite subject in school was you guessed it, mathematics. Her ideal occupation was to be a math teacher. Mrs. Howell is a former cheerleader from BHS and her school spirit is still shown. She graduated from Blountstown High School in 1989. Mrs. Howell then attended many colleges including: Chipola for two years earning an Associates Degree, FSU for four years earning a BS degree in Math Education for grades 6th-12th, FAMU earning her Masters Degree in Educational Leadership, and Troy for her dual enrollment certification. She began teaching at Altha School in 1993. She taught there for six years before joining the faculty at BHS in 1999. She’s been at BHS for the last eleven years, and is currently an adjunct instructor at Chipola College. In the school year of 2009 Mrs. Howell earned her National Board Certification. Mrs. Howell is married to her high school sweetheart, Ray Howell. They have two children Thomas and Caroline. She enjoys attending church every time the doors are open. In spare time she carries out her strong belief and love for Christ by reading her favorite book, The Holy Bible. Her favorite type of music is anything with a catchy beat that she can dance to. She is probably known as the most athletic teacher here at BHS. You are more likely to catch her running in a local 5k or teaching a Zumba dance class than to find her sitting at home watching TV. Although, she does enjoy watching her favorite mystery based shows such as, Castle an ABC television series. Mrs. Howell is involved in many school related functions. She is the National Honor Society (NHS) sponsor, and she’s constantly stressed over Tiger’s Growl for Homecoming, or the NHS Induction. In the end she keeps her “cool” and pulls it all off. I remember as a freshman she was a whole new experience. I was not used to the fast paced teaching methods. Now I can’t see a day going by without stopping by her classroom to at least say “Hey”. Mrs. Howell truly has earned the spotlight and credit she is given here at BHS and with recognition as a National Board Certified teacher.

During this two-day trip to the Capitol, local high school juniors chosen by their principals and guidance counselors for excellence, and whose parents or guardians are members of WFEC, visited the IMAX theatre where they saw the film “Forces of Nature” and participated in an electromagnetic classroom demonstration. Youth Tour participants also enjoyed a private tour of the Governor’s Mansion. The students also visited the Florida House of Representatives where they participated in a mock legislative session, proposing and debating bills. In addition, students visited the Supreme Court where they witnessed oral arguments in a case presented before the Justices. Contestants representing WFEC in Tallahassee were: Jake Hall, Altha School; Brett Tanner, Blountstown High School; Carly Hartzog, Chipley High School; Jared Byrd, Graceville High School; Ryan Pickwick, Holmes County High School; Karlee Floyd, Malone High School; Kaylee Toole, Marianna High School; Alex Roberts, Ponce De Leon High School; Angel Rodriguez, Poplar Springs High School; Jennifer Thompson, Sneads High School and Caleb Coppedge, Vernon High School. WFEC’s eleven Youth Tour contestants competed for an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C, where they will join other eleventh grade students from all over the United States to tour the nation’s capitol in June. A panel of three judges from the electric cooperative industry interviewed the students and chose two winners and an alternate on Thursday, February 18. The winners were Brett Tanner, Blountstown High School and Jennifer Thompson, Sneads High School. The alternate winner was Angel Rodriguez from Poplar Springs High School. The trips to Tallahassee and Washington, D.C. are part of the cooperative’s efforts to educate the leaders of tomorrow about how our state and federal government works. The trips also help them gain insight into the roles rural cooperatives have played in the history of our country as well as their roles in the future of the electric utility industry. The Washington, D.C. Youth Tour Program has been in existence since 1957 when co-ops sent students to Washington, D.C. to work during the summer. By 1964, the program caught on, and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) began to coordinate the efforts of the co-ops. Since then, thousands of young people have experienced this opportunity. Winners were selected for an all-expense paid trip to Washington, DC, to tour the nation's capitol. They are (from left) Alternate Ð Angel Rodriguez, Poplar Springs High School, Winner Ð Brett Tanner, Blountstown High School and Winner Ð Jennifer Thompson, Sneads High School.

BY KELLI PEACOCK DUNN News Editor It was two out of three for the Blountstown Lady Tigers last week as they defeated Malone twice and lost to Graceville. The BHS girls faced Malone last Monday and shut them out, 18-0, in three and a half innings. Brittany Griffin was the winning pitcher. At the plate, Lindsey Doyal had two singles, a walk, and an RBI. Selena Williams had a single, two walks, and four RBIs. Genny Starr had a single, a walk, an FC, and three RBIs. On a very chilly Tuesday, the Lady Tigers lost to Gracville, 17-7. “They were just cold and didn’t play well,” says Coach Bubba Johnson. Griffin took the loss on the mound. Brittany Brown relieved her in the fifth inning. Offensively, Anna Kelly had three singles and two runs scored. Williams, Starr, and Ambur Burch all had two hits. The Lady Tigers took on Malone again Friday and defeated them, 21-2, scoring 10 of those runs in the fifth inning. Griffin was the winning pitcher, improving her record to 3-1. “Malone walked 17 and hit seven batters,” Coach Johnson remarks. Brown and Williams each had two hits and two RBIs for the Tigers. Burch had a single, two walks, and three RBIs. Griffin had a single, two walks, and three RBIs. “Defensively, on in-field, we’ve been doing good,” says Coach Johnson. “Lindsey is improving on catching.” In J.V. action, the Lady Tigers defeated Malone last Monday, 11-3. Courtney McFarland was the winning pitcher. Kimberly Jenks had a single and two RBIs. Randa McCroan had a single, two walks and two RBIs. McFarland had two walks and an RBI. Against Graceville, the J.V. girls won 19-5 with McFarland getting the win on the mound. At the plate, Shayla Chason had a double and a single. Kelsey Bontrager had two singles and three runs scored.

McFarland was the winning pitcher once again. Bontrager, Blackburn, and Kassie Wood brought in two hits a piece. The Lady Tigers are holding several fundraisers. They are selling Boston butts, signs on the field, and discount cards with deals at 20 local businesses.

JOHNSON Depressing, profane, and disturbing, it tells the story of Claricee “Precious” Jones (Oscar nominee Gabourey Sidibe), an overweight African-American teen in 1980s Harlem, pregnant with her second child and the victim of a truly horrific home life. She is uneducated, has no self-esteem, and has one of the cruelest mothers ever to grace the silver screen (Oscar nominee Mo’Nique). I have issues with this film, notably that it is perhaps too relentlessly downbeat for its own good and the story could have used a bit more development. It isn’t very likable, and I would really only recommend it to those who are specifically interested in acting, as Sidibe and Mo’Nique deliver outstanding performances far exceeding the script they were given to work with. (R) Pixar’s Up is the second animated feature ever nominated for Best Picture, an honor I don’t believe it deserves. Likely nominated to make up for the strange cold-shoulder the Academy gave to the far superior Wall-E last year, Up really has no idea what it wants to be. It goes off in multiple directions, with too much childish humor to be a deep, serious character study of an old lonely man, too much seriousness to be fun for children, and a subplot involving a villain, which makes little sense. It’s bright, it’s shiny, and it features a few interesting scenes (the most notable of which is a lovely silent sequence detailing the entire married life of an elderly couple), but unfortunately, it isn’t particularly entertaining and doesn’t focus on any one thing as much as it should. That scene, the great musical score and a cute dog named Dug are really the only things I enjoyed. (PG)Movie Moment cont'd topics I am covering in class, I know I have been able to reach them,” she says. As for the most frustrating thing about her job, she says with all certainty, the lack of time. “There are so many skills and concepts that need to be covered during the school year,” Wendy explains. “I wish I had more time to cover a standard thoroughly before rushing on to the next one.” Finding ways to keep children focused is always a challenge, but Wendy finds unique ways to make her classes interesting. “I am blessed to teach science because it naturally lends itself to fun hands-on activities,” she says. “My students love being able to get out of their seats, work in small groups, and conduct scientific investigations.” For those considering a career in education, Wendy offers these words of advice: “Teaching requires more than knowing your subject matter. Make sure you have the compassion that is required to be truly concerned about your students total welfare.” Being recognized for a job she truly loves means so much to Wendy, but she is quick to point out how much the BESfaculty and staff work together to achieve positive results. “I am very honored and humbled to receive this recognition, but I know that if it were not for all of the other teachers working hard to prepare the students before they come to my class, I would not be able to be successful. The education of a child requires a team effort.” Next week, we will interview the School Related Employee of the Year, Rhonda O’Bryan.Teacher of the Year cont'd Pump It Up!5-K and One Mile Run SaturdayLiberty County 4-H office staff, Cathia Schmarje and Monica Brinkley, are "Pumped Up" about the 5-K run, walk, jog event including a one mile fun run, Saturday, February 27, at 8 AM (est) at the Veterans Memorial Civic Center.

Neal Civic Center for their monthly 'brown bag' lunch and business meeting. Jessie Mae Price, President, presided and welcomed a full house. Present were two guests with a total of sixteen women at the table. Though a relatively small club in number as compared to some of the larger city groups in northern Florida, this local chapter consists of ladies who are 'pros' in all they do, never short on enthusiasm and, 'can do, will do, have done' spirit. Following the devotional and pledge of allegiance, lunch was in order. Hostesses, J.P . Dunbar and Gail Wood provided coffee, tea, nuts, and delicious mini choco cupcakes with cherry-on-top. The door prize was drawn by guest, Beverly Veress, and low and behold, Bev drew her own name! Laughs resulted at this stroke of good luck. An item from the business agenda bringing sighs of relief consisted of the fact that the chapter officers for next year have been chosen. Jessie Mae Price will continue to lead the group, and all were most pleased that this fair and just leader would once again be at the helm. The group launched into several Sweetheart Auctions, the theme of the day. Members had brought items from home ranging from exotic flower vases, to good books, to lamps, soaps, and skin lotions, and apple pie dish. Over 60 items graced the table with steady and brisk bidding. With lots of chatter and fun, these ladies were able to still remember the true purpose of their club -community service and assistance to needy outside communities. In less than thirty minutes, more than $135 was collected for service projects. More recently, this chapter donated $200 for Haiti relief. On Saturday, February 20, eight local members will attend the annual District II meeting in Chipley. Enjoyed by all, this gathering totals as many as 150 to 200 from the northern Florida area. Past accomplishments, future goals, into exchange and new ideas, all help make this a a valuable and energizing event. Each chapter President will report on their group's achievements. Following lunch, the Arts & Crafts Festival will be held. All exhibits have been made by members of each club chapter, and they are diverse in category. Photography, drawing and painting in all mediums, crafts, including woodwork, sewing and needle work, fabric craft, doll making, these are but a few of the art to be shown. The Blountstown members will have six entries to be judged. J.P . Dunbar, Peck Eldridge, Karen McClendon, Clara McCroan, Frances Price, and Linda Smith have contributed projects. March will feature an international potluck and program.The County Record, FEBRUARY 24, 2010, P P a a g g e e 9 9Legal NoticeB I D N O T I C E S T A T E H O U S I N G I N I T A I T I V E S “ S H I P P R O G R A M ” The Calhoun Board of County Commissioners will accept sealed bids on behalf of its State Housing Initiatives Partnership “SHIP”Program for the rehab of houses until 12:00 p.m.local time on Tuesday, March 16, 2010.Bids may be delivered to the Clerk’s Office in the Calhoun County Courthouse, Blountstown, Florida 32424.

Feb. 27, 2010tle white thing?” So smug in my superiority, chugging a soda and eatin’ a pizza stick. Later, I caught a glimpse of myself in a full length mirror, unclothed. Dreadful things those are. Yes, the eyes are the window of the soul, but the mirror is the window to the truth. Like a train wreck, I could not look away. What has been seen, can’t be unseen as they say. My good angel spoke, “Who is stronger, you, or that pizza stick?” Judge not……. So, as if putting a period on the undeniable paragraph, I am paying at the counter of Goodwill (that it happened there seems sort of poignant). The smiling lady asked me, “Do you have your card?” Blank stare back. “Your senior citizen discount card….Sug.” It must have been something in my slack jawed stare that prompted her to say, “Sorry, I have to ask…..for folks ON-THEBORDER!!!” The devil on my left shoulder whispered in my ear to remind her she works next door to an eye doctor, but I didn’t. I just took it in stride, I mean I did need a shave, and to be honest, I needed a moment to write about. It just needed to stew a few weeks, but as I stated, I did make note of the day, I am sure the first of many, and heck, who doesn’t need a discount? Or, a little extra push to meet a goal. See you on the track.J.K.'s Column cont'd Rotary Club donates to BHS choir; Blountstown Drugs donates $1000 for "shelter box" projectThe Blountstown Rotary Club recently contributed $200 to the Blountstown High School choir program. Janet Edewaard, who teaches choir, presented a program to the Rotary Club on how students not only learn about music and art in her classes, but also develop character and confidence. The choir puts on several shows a year with Edewaard either making the costumes herself or acquiring them through donations. Anyone interested in assisting the BHS choir with a donation is urged to contact Edewaard at 674-5724. Support would be greatly appreciated. In last week's edition, it was noted that the Rotary Club recently donated $2000 to purchase shelter boxes for homeless people in Haiti. Special thanks to Blountstown Drugs for providing $1000 of that contribution.
